    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    Story

    The plot of this book was perdictable. I forced myself to continue listening, thinking the book would get better. Unfortunately it did not. I disliked the narrators voice and accent. I would not recommend this book.

    As Quebec City shivers in the grip of winter, its ancient stone walls cracking in the cold, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache plunges into the strangest case of his celebrated career. A man has been brutally murdered in one of the city’s oldest buildings - a library where the English citizens of Quebec safeguard their history. And the death opens a door into the past, exposing a mystery that has lain dormant for centuries... a mystery Gamache must solve if he’s to catch a present-day killer.

    Story

    This book left some questions unanswered until the end of the story. By doing this it keeps the reader engaged and guessing. I liked the setting of the story. The canadian content made the story more relavent to me. The author does a very good job of discribing the setting. You can feel the cold winter winds as you listen to it.

    This book was good from the very start. The story is very orignal. The narator does a fantastic job. The end of the book leaves a few questions unanswered.

    Thriller scribe Sophie Katz is as hard-boiled as a woman who drinks Grande Caramel Brownie Frappuccionos can be. So Sophie knows it's not paranoia, or post-divorce, living-alone-again jitters, when she becomes convinced that a crazed reader is sneaking into her apartment to reenact scenes from her books. The police, however, can't tell a good plot from an unmarked grave.

    This is an entertaining book, But, the story was perdictable. I enjoy other books by Kyra Davis much more than this one.
