    What made the experience of listening to O, Pioneers! the most enjoyable?

    I just love the way the author describes the people and the landscape of Nebraska. I am from Nebraska and had relatives that homesteaded there. I imagined them starting their farm on the harsh land like Alexandra did in the story. She was a strong woman who had a head for business and the land.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alexandra - strong woman!


    What does Alexis O'Donahue bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her accents.

    Bellamy Lyston was only 12 years old when her older sister Susan was killed on a stormy Memorial Day. Bellamy's fear of storms is a legacy of the tornado that destroyed the crime scene along with her memory of what really happened during the day's most devastating moments. Now, 18 years later, Bellamy has written a sensational, best-selling novel based on Susan's murder. Because the book was inspired by the tragic event that still pains her family, she published it under a pseudonym to protect them from unwanted publicity. But an opportunistic reporter for a tabloid newspaper discovers that the book is based on fact....

    Story

    My husband and I had to drive from Florida to New Jersey a few weeks ago, so I downloaded Low Pressure to listen to in the car. I wanted a story we both would be interested in, so I looked for a mystery. We listened to most of it on the way up and then finished it on the way back home. We stopped it and discussed the facts from time to time and made our predictions. It kept us awake and interested as we drove along I95 for hours and it was fun listening to it together!! I would read more of her books.
