    Once a culturally rich world, the planet Aka has been utterly transformed by technology. Records of the past have been destroyed, and citizens are strictly monitored. But an official observer from Earth will discover a group of outcasts who still practice its lost religion-the Telling. Intrigued by their beliefs, she joins them on a sacred pilgrimage into the mountains...and into the dangerous terrain of her own heart, mind, and soul.

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    Ryan says: "Enjoyable, but a lot of setup"
    "Not at all a last in series book"

    Would you try another book from George R. R. Martin and/or Roy Dotrice?

    I'd like to re-write Book 5


    Has A Dance with Dragons turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not sure


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Roy Dotrice?

    Loved him in all the previous books -- didn't like this one


    Any additional comments?

    I still want many of the characters to have a sense that instead of falling off the world...their lives resolved somehow.

    Meredith and Nina Whitson are as different as sisters can be. One stayed at home to raise her children and manage the family apple orchard: the other followed a dream and traveled the world to become a famous photojournalist. But when their beloved father fails ill, Meredith and Nina find themselves together again, standing alongside their cold, disapproving mother, Anya, who even now, offers no comfort to her daughters

    Alysa says: "Gut wrenching....but well done."
    "Great Drama Story"

    Where does Winter Garden rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my favorite listens!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Winter Garden?

    When Anya tells her story to the Historian.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Nina, describing the farm on her first trip back in the early morning.


    If you could take any character from Winter Garden out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Nina, she's a spitfire.
