  • In the Face of Jinn

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 2 mins)
    • By Cheryl Howard Crew
    • Narrated By Bryce Howard

    Two American sisters, Christine and Elizabeth Shepherd, are on a silk-buying trip in India for their business in California. After Elizabeth mysteriously disappears, Christine is compelled to challenge the ineffectual U.S. and Indian bureaucracies and venture alone, with various strangers as guides, to find her sister. Disguised in the traditional female garb of some Islamic cultures, Christine continues her search in Afghanistan and Pakistan. She navigates the mysterious tribes of the Pashtuns, has a dangerous encounter with the Taliban, and learns to fear the "Jinn", the devils that dominate the superstitions of the people she must understand in order to survive.

    Lisa says: "Don't waste you time or money"
    "THE best narration ever!"
    Would you listen to In the Face of Jinn again? Why?

    I've been listening to one or two books every month since 2002 and Bryce Howard does the most incredible narration I have ever heard. The story is also sooooo good! It's up their with The Help. Couldn't wait to listen and Did not want it to end! Highly recommend it.

  • The Patron Saint of Liars

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 10 mins)
    • By Ann Patchett
    • Narrated By Julia Gibson

    St. Elizabeth's is a home for unwed mothers in the 1960s. Life there is not unpleasant, and for most, it is temporary. Not so for Rose, a beautiful, mysterious woman who comes to the home pregnant but not unwed. She plans to give up her baby because she knows she cannot be the mother it needs.

    But St. Elizabeth's is near a healing spring, and when Rose's time draws near, she cannot go through with her plans, not all of them.

    Deborah says: "Incomplete"
    "Not what I expected, but worth listening to."
    What made the experience of listening to The Patron Saint of Liars the most enjoyable?

    Interesting story involving several characters, kept it intriguing.

    If you could take any character from The Patron Saint of Liars out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    rose. I' d ask her why she never went back to California to see her mother. What were her feelings towards Sister Evangelina.

  • A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 25 mins)
    • By Joshilyn Jackson
    • Narrated By Joshilyn Jackson
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty is a powerful saga of three generations of women, plagued by hardships and torn by a devastating secret, yet inextricably joined by the bonds of family. Fifteen-year-old Mosey Slocumb-spirited, sassy, and on the cusp of womanhood-is shaken when a small grave is unearthed in the backyard, and determined to figure out why it's there. Liza, her stroke-ravaged mother, is haunted by choices she made as a teenager. But it is Jenny, Mosey's strong and big-hearted grandmother....

    Janice says: "I wanted to cheer out loud!"
    "Great characters in an interesting story."
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I really looked forward to listening to this book each night, it held my interest and was very enjoyable.

    Any additional comments?

    I love it when I find a new author that I really like, Joshilyn Jackson is an awesome writer and I am looking forward to reading all of her books.
