    A sophisticated, pause-resistant double love story spanning 40 years - an unforgettable Brief Encounter for our times. It is 1960. When Jennifer Stirling wakes up in the hospital, she can remember nothing - not the tragic car accident, not her husband, not even who she is. She feels like a stranger in her own life until she stumbles upon an impassioned letter, signed simply "B", asking her to leave her husband. Years later, a journalist named Ellie discovers the same enigmatic letter in a forgotten file in her newspaper's archives....

    Just as Me Before You was a wonderful listen, so was The Last Letter From Your Lover. I know because I felt like I was living with the characters and am thinking about it even though I finished days ago. My ambition is to read or listen to all of the author's books.

    Toni Murphy was eighteen when she and her boyfriend, Ryan, were wrongly convicted of the murder of her younger sister. Now she is thirty-four and back in her hometown, working every day to forge and adjust to a new life on the outside. She's doing everything in her power to avoid violating her parole and going back to prison. But nothing is making that easy – not Ryan, who is convinced he can figure out the truth; not her mother, who clearly doubts Toni's innocence; and certainly not the group of women who made Toni's life miserable in high school.

    I listened to or read all of Chevy Stevens' books so far and found this as good or better than the others. It kept my attention 100% of the time and I couldn't wait to listen to it. I also found the narration excellent. I can't wait for the next one. I loved the character growth and what I learned about life in prison and what parole exactly is. The romantic side of the novel was wonderful as well. I am sorry I finished it!

    From the celebrated author of The Secret Life of Bees, a magnificent novel about two unforgettable American women. Writing at the height of her narrative and imaginative gifts, Sue Monk Kidd presents a masterpiece of hope, daring, the quest for freedom, and the desire to have a voice in the world - and it is now the newest Oprah’s Book Club 2.0 selection. Hetty “Handful” Grimke, an urban slave in early nineteenth century Charleston, yearns for life beyond the suffocating walls that enclose her within the wealthy Grimke household. The Grimke’s daughter, Sarah, has known from an early age she is meant to do something large in the world, but she is hemmed in by the limits imposed on women.

    This was one of the best books I've read or listened to in a long time. The narration was wonderful. Both narrators were perfect for their parts. Besides being a wonderful heartfelt story, I learned a lot more than I knew about that horrible and unspeakable time period in our history. The comments by the author at the end of the book clarified a lot about what was fiction and non fiction. I do not leave reviews often, but felt that I could not leave this work without a totally positive review. Thank you to Sue Monk Kidd for the knowledge and wonderful story. I will be on the lookout for future books. This book would be perfect for a movie, and I hope it does happen.

    Best seller Alan Brennert's spellbinding story about a family of dreamers and their lives within the legendary Palisades Amusement Park. Growing up in the 1930s, there is no more magical place than Palisades Amusement Park in New Jersey - especially for seven-year-old Antoinette, who horrifies her mother by insisting on the unladylike nickname Toni, and her brother, Jack. Toni helps her parents, Eddie and Adele Stopka, at the stand where they sell homemade French fries amid the roar of the Cyclone roller coaster. There is also the lure of the world’s biggest salt-water pool, complete with divers whose astonishing stunts inspire Toni.

    I usually don't write reviews, but had to for Palisades Park. I feel Alan Brennert is a wonderful writer and he writes meaningful fiction with non fiction mixed in. I learn so much from each book. It was the same with Palisades Park. I could see the Park when traveling in a car by the Hudson River and know I went there at least once. After listening to this book, I was sorry that I couldn't go there right now one more time. He makes the story and characters so real that I could connect with each one. Besides the writing, the narration was wonderful and fit the book perfectly. I loved listening to it, and am sorry it is over.
