    Franklin Delano Roosevelt was arguably the greatest figure of the 20th century. While FDR's official circle was predominantly male, it was his relationships with women - particularly with Lucy Mercer Rutherfurd - that most vividly bring to light the human being beneath this towering statesman.

    This was a good book about FDR's private life. Very interesting and well worth listening to.

    Author of the beloved classic The Thorn Birds, Colleen McCullough creates sweeping sagas that are unparalleled in their drama and emotional grandeur. Now she carries listeners into the pageantry and passion, politics and intrigue of ancient Rome. Cunning and ambition were prized in this vast and powerful empire, but what would it take to win its highest honor, to be First Man in Rome?

    Jessica says: "Best Historical Fiction Ever"
    "First Man In Rome"
    Overall

    This is one of my all time best books. But it is a series. I just wished that they would put all the series on audio books. But well worth getting. A great long listen that you will play again and again.

    Here is the astonishing, never-before-told story of the greatest rescue mission of World War II: when the OSS set out to recover more than 500 airmen trapped behind enemy lines. During a bombing campaign, hundreds of American airmen were shot down in Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia. Local Serbian villagers risked their own lives to give refuge to the soldiers, and for months the airmen lived in hiding, waiting for rescue.

    Ron says: "an amazing tale"

    Overall

    This is one of the most interesting audio books I have listened too. It was a history that I had never heard of until now. It explained a lot of our modern history of today. It was deeply moving. If you love history this book is for you.
