  • Saving Ceecee Honeycutt

    Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

    Jeanne says: "A Wonderful Listen!"
    "Insightful and delightful"
    Overall

    Powerful insight into how mental illness affects lives on so many levels. Very well written - very early in the story I questioned whether or nor I would be able to listen to some of the painful momens in the story. The author then gives you hope that perhaps there could be a silver lining in the story - however, there were so many times one would guess the shoe would drop - it became a cat and mouse game. The characters were well developed and you will look forward to hopefully another appearace of many of the characters. Excellent narration!

    No one really expects it, but at some time or another, just about everyone has been—or will be—responsible for giving care, for a sustained period, to someone close to them. Gail Sheehy, who has chronicled every major turning point for 20th-century Americans, as well as reported on everything from politics to sexuality, knows firsthand the trials, fears, and rare joys of caregiving.

    Overall

    Anyone with even the slightest prospect of ever becoming a caregiver will benefit from this book. I have read Gail Sheehy's books before - she ia an excellent writer however, this book, in my estimation, is priceless! I am a beginner on the caregiver path - this book has given me strength, and truly helped me become more focused in compassion and less of an enabler. If you, or someone you know is dealing with caregiving issues, this is the best gift you could give. Audio especially because you don't have time to sit down and read too often.

  • The Finer Points of Sausage Dogs

    With millions of copies of his New York Times best-selling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency mysteries in print across the globe, Alexander McCall Smith is one of the most popular novelists and humorists in the world. Starring the brilliant but bumbling Professor Doctor Moritz-Maria von Igelfeld, The Finer Points of Sausage Dogs is a wonderfully entertaining showcase for Smith's award-winning wit.

    Judy says: "I couldn't finish the book..."
    "Struck my funny bone!"
    Overall

    Oh my! First, Paul Hecht is marvelous and fully understands the foibles of these delightful characters. Alexander McCall Smith has obviously drawn on his life-experience and has created fully illustrated individuals so outrageous and hilarious... one is drawn to listen to their finer points over and over. I have listened to this book many times. I have recommended it to many people and have been amazed at the few who just didn't "get it." If you "get it" you'll love it! Highly recommend it and hope for many more sequels!

    Story
    (2228)

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    Christopher Allen walker says: "Great Pulitzer Winning novel!"
    "Outstanding Narration"
    Overall

    I was not sure this book was really what I wanted to listen to over several hours. However, the narrator was SO wonderful, so compelling that I wanted to listen to every word. Some of it is uncomfortable but all of it is so important to understand in the overall design of our world and all of the people who populate it.I will probably listen again because the narrator weaves the stories and voices so well it is fascinating to get so quickly caught up in a story. Bravo!!!
