    Eleanor Murray will always remember her childhood on Edisto Island, where her late father, a local shrimper, shared her passion for music. Now her memories of him are all that tempers the guilt she feels over the accident that put her sister in a wheelchair and the feelings she harbors for her sister's husband. To help support her sister, Eleanor works at a Charleston investment firm during the day, but she escapes into her music, playing piano at a neighborhood bar. Until the night her enigmatic boss walks in and offers her a part-time job caring for his elderly aunt, Helena, back on Edisto.

    Story

    I had heard two other of Karen White's books, On Folly Beach and The Beach Trees, and really enjoyed them. I thought, this is an author from whom I would really like to hear more.
    I LOVED The Time Between. It was so unpredictable and a beautiful story of sisterly relationship and healing. I can't recommend it enough !

    Here is the story of two families, branches of the Solomons, transported to an alien land. Both branches eventually grow rich and powerful. But through three generations, the families never, for one moment, relinquish their hatred for each other. This novel is also the story of Australia, from its beginnings to its coming of age as a nation.

    Anne says: "Breathtaking!"
    "Beautifully written, as I've come to expect."

    I was a little surprised by the somewhat abrupt ending to the story. I loved the trilogy!

    Songs in Ordinary Time is set in the summer of 1960 - the last of quiet times and America's innocence. It centers on Marie Fermoyle, a strong but vulnerable woman whose loneliness and ambition for her children make her easy prey for the dangerous con man Omar Duvall.

    Story

    Songs in Ordinary Times was quite a story. The writing was well crafted and Sandra Burr's performance was terrific, as always. But, I kept hoping for something good to happen to these characters. It was just plain depressing, at times. There were many many threads and subplots which sometimes were hard to remember and follow. And I don't know when I've hated an antagonist so much. Also, it was very long and the misery just went on and on. Finally, after more than twenty-five hours of stress, the ending gave a bit of a reprise.
    I probably won't listen to this one again, although I am somewhat curious about the movie.

    Story

    What a beautiful story. I loved "Power of One," but this book I couldn't stop listening to. I was truly sad to have it end. I would listen again right away, but it is a bit intense for that.
    I'm so sorry that I didn't discover Mr. Courtney until after he left this world. What a gifted author !

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    Charles says: "Read all of Gabaldon's stuff before this one"
    "Can't wait for the next book !"

    I absolutely love the Outlander Series. The books never seem to be as long as they are. I am always sad to have them end. I think I'll listen to all of them again, so the wait for the next doesn't seem as long :)

    Meredith and Nina Whitson are as different as sisters can be. One stayed at home to raise her children and manage the family apple orchard: the other followed a dream and traveled the world to become a famous photojournalist. But when their beloved father fails ill, Meredith and Nina find themselves together again, standing alongside their cold, disapproving mother, Anya, who even now, offers no comfort to her daughters

    Alysa says: "Gut wrenching....but well done."

    I was already a Kristin Hannah fan, but this is my favorite of all. The relationships were so
    touching. The unfolding of the tale was spellbinding. I am going to buy it for my daughters for Christmas. I really loved this book !
