    Haunted by the freak accident that killed their father when they were children, Jim and Bob Burgess escaped from their Maine hometown of Shirley Falls for New York City as soon as they possibly could. Jim, a sleek, successful corporate lawyer, has belittled his bighearted brother their whole lives, and Bob, a Legal Aid attorney who idolizes Jim, has always taken it in stride. But their long-standing dynamic is upended when their sister, Susan - the Burgess sibling who stayed behind - urgently calls them home.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely, the reader is one of my favorites. Every word is spoken with emotion.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Burgess Boys?

    When Jim admitted he was the one who killed his father not Bob.


    Which character – as performed by Cassandra Campbell – was your favorite?

    I liked Pam.


    If you could take any character from The Burgess Boys out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Although Jim was the villain of the story he was also the most interesting. I would take Jim out and just let him talk about everything.


    Any additional comments?

    Elizabeth Strout does an excellent job of weaving a story together. Her characters are in-depth, lovable and flawed. She is a keen observer of family dynamics and the listener can see how everything fits together at the end.

  • The Language of Flowers: A Novel

    A mesmerizing, moving, and elegantly written debut novel, The Language of Flowers beautifully weaves past and present, creating a vivid portrait of an unforgettable woman whose gift for flowers helps her change the lives of others even as she struggles to overcome her own troubled past. The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it's been more useful in communicating grief, mistrust, and solitude.
