    In this intimate dual memoir, she and her daughter, Ann, offer distinct perspectives as a 50-something and a 20-something, each on a quest to redefine herself and to rediscover each other. Between 1998 and 2000, Sue and Ann travel throughout Greece and France. Sue, coming to grips with aging, caught in a creative vacuum, longing to reconnect with her grown daughter, struggles to enlarge a vision of swarming bees into a novel.

    Winner of the Quill Award and the Corine International Book Prize, Diana Gabaldon is the #1 New York Times best-selling author of the Outlander series. This fourth novel featuring popular character Lord John Grey is told both from Lord Grey’s perspective and from that of Jamie Fraser, the star of the Outlander series.

    Would you listen to Dawn on a Distant Shore again? Why?

    Probably not, the story is not that complex. The story is forced in some areas.

    Story
    (3659)

    A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the saga of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century, time-traveling wife, Claire. The year is 1772, and the rift between Britain and its American colonies has put a frightening word into the minds of all concerned: revolution. In the backwoods of North Carolina, violence has already reared its ugly head, as cabins have been burned to the ground. To preserve the colony for King George III, the governor pleads with Jamie to bring the people together and restore peace. But Jamie has the burden of knowing that war cannot be avoided.

    B.J. says: "Another terrific listen."

    What did you love best about A Breath of Snow and Ashes?

    I was intimidated by the length of these books when I started the series. Now there aren't enough pages! The characters are wonderfully complex and the story makes you want to know...what's next!


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    Wonderful performance.


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

    The book is too long to listen to in one sitting. But I have been known to take extra time commuting to listen for just a little longer

    Out of the stories heard in her childhood in Los Angeles's Chinatown and years of research, See has constructed this sweeping chronicle of her Chinese-American family, a work that takes in stories of racism and romance, entrepreneurial genius and domestic heartache, secret marriages and sibling rivalries, in a powerful history of two cultures meeting in a new world.

    William says: "Too much like a documentary history book"

    Any additional comments?

    This was a wonderful work of fiction with the story of Chinese coming to California.
