    Best-selling author Nevada Barr delights contemporary mystery fans with novels like Deep South and Blood Lure. In Bittersweet, she departs the mystery genre for a touching story of hardship, perseverance, and love in the old West.

    Story

    A delightful surprise to find the story of two women and their loving relationship set in the wild west in the 1870's. Lots of twists and turns, unexpected directions, and had me completely engrossed from start to finish. Obviously the author had done her homework well - history records many such relationships after the Civil War, and she has brought the characters to life beautifully. Equally brought to life by Linda Stephens reading the book, warm and characterfilled. What a pity there arent more like this!

    Story
    (150)

    From slave to freedom fighter: that was the long and hard journey taken by Frederick Douglass. Douglass was America's first great civil rights leader, and he threw off the physical, mental, and legal chains of slavery to become one of Americaï¿¿ï¿¿s greatest champions for human rights. It was said that his life was proof that once black people could read and write about their injustices, they would have the power to end slavery.

    Marsha says: "Great if you're 9 years old"
    "pity about the narrator"
    Overall

    A delightful and fascinating story, but could have been better directed and the narration was downright poor. Still, the kids understood it and enjoyed it. An amazing side of American history we were previously ignorant of.

  • The Crucible

    • ORIGINAL (1 hr and 59 mins)

    Story
    (111)

    In the rigid theocracy of Salem, Massachusetts, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town. In the ruthlessness of the prosecutors and the eagerness of neighbor to testify against neighbor, The Crucible mirrors the anti-Communist hysteria in the 1950s.

    Thomas S says: "Dramatic Recording"
    "easy study"
    Overall

    My daughter found it far easier to listen to the audiobook of The Crucible than to read it from the paper copy. The dramatisation of the play was great, and it really came alive. A great study helper!
