    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    Gen's family is more comfortable spending time apart than together. Then Gen's mom signs them up for Camp Frontiera vacation that promises the "thrill" of living like 1890s pioneers. Forced to give up all of her modern possessions, Gen nevertheless manages to email her friends back home about life at "Little Hell on the Prairie", as she's renamed the camp. But it turns out frontier life isn't without its good points, like the cute boy who lives in the next clearing.

    In pre-war Prague, the dreams of two young lovers are shattered when they are separated by the Nazi invasion. Then, decades later, thousands of miles away in New York, there's an inescapable glance of recognition between two strangers. Providence is giving Lenka and Josef one more chance. From the glamorous ease of life in Prague before the Occupation, to the horrors of Nazi Europe, The Lost Wife explores the power of first love, the resilience of the human spirit, and the strength of memory.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Lost Wife to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    What did you like best about this story?

    The sense of a miracle about to unfold.


    What about George Guidall and Suzanne Toren ’s performance did you like?

    George Guidall is among my favorite narrators. I have listened to books narrated by him that I would never have had the fortitude to read. And I have thoroughly enjoyed his performance while experiencing books that I would have not experienced otherwise. I have not had the pleasure of listening to a narration by Suzanne Toren previous to this book but I will be sure to look for her as I was pleased with this narration.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were emotional moments, to be sure. But, I feel that, the measure of this book is the lasting impression it had on me about the endurance of the human spirit under the most trying circumstances.

    Thank you, Audible, for making so many wonderful books available for listening!

  • The Art of Racing in the Rain

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 56 mins)

    Story
    (3640)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

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

    Yes, because it was well written and carried a very sweet message. The narrative performance was well done and enjoyable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact that it was surprisingly enjoyable. I love animals and especially dogs but I was afraid that this story might be too melodramatic.


    What does Christopher Evan Welch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He was, very effectively, the "voice" of the dog.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I rarely have that much time to commit to listening to a book. I generally listen as I am able to listen.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you for making these audio books available and easily attainable!
