    Her grandfather wants her to come home, and Molly thinks she just might. His ranch will be a good place for her sons to grow up, a place to escape big-city influences. Then she learns - from a stranger named Sam Dakota - that her grandfather is ill. Possibly dying. Molly packs up the kids without a second thought and makes the long drive to Sweetgrass, Montana. Once she arrives, she immediately has questions about Sam Dakota. Why is he working on her grandfather’s ranch? Why doesn’t the sheriff trust him? Just who is he?

    It's been a sleepy summer for the folks of Lake Eden, Minnesota. In fact, it's been a whole four months since anyone in the Swensen family has come across a dead body - a detail that just made the front page of the local paper. And that means Hannah Swensen can finally focus on her bakery. . .or can she? Life is never really quiet for Hannah. After all, her mother's wedding is a little over a month away and guess who Delores put in charge of the planning?

    In pre-war Prague, the dreams of two young lovers are shattered when they are separated by the Nazi invasion. Then, decades later, thousands of miles away in New York, there's an inescapable glance of recognition between two strangers. Providence is giving Lenka and Josef one more chance. From the glamorous ease of life in Prague before the Occupation, to the horrors of Nazi Europe, The Lost Wife explores the power of first love, the resilience of the human spirit, and the strength of memory.

    Would you listen to The Lost Wife again? Why?

    If I had no other audio book I wanted to listen to, yes I would listen to it again. Hopefully there will a lot of books I want to listen too!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The character read by Suzanne Toren(forgot the name of character!), because she was loyal to her family and very brave.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall and Suzanne Toren – was your favorite?

    Probably Character performed by Suzanne Toren was my favorite .


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

    Not really, because some of the story takes place in a Concentration Camp, and that is easy to quit listening to. I needed a break.


    Any additional comments?

    It really is a well done audio presentation .

    From the celebrated author of The Secret Life of Bees, a magnificent novel about two unforgettable American women. Writing at the height of her narrative and imaginative gifts, Sue Monk Kidd presents a masterpiece of hope, daring, the quest for freedom, and the desire to have a voice in the world - and it is now the newest Oprah’s Book Club 2.0 selection. Hetty “Handful” Grimke, an urban slave in early nineteenth century Charleston, yearns for life beyond the suffocating walls that enclose her within the wealthy Grimke household. The Grimke’s daughter, Sarah, has known from an early age she is meant to do something large in the world, but she is hemmed in by the limits imposed on women.

    Award-winning author William Kent Krueger has gained an immense fan base for his Cork O’Connor series. In Ordinary Grace, Krueger looks back to 1961 to tell the story of Frank Drum, a boy on the cusp of manhood. A typical 13-year-old with a strong, loving family, Frank is devastated when a tragedy forces him to face the unthinkable - and to take on a maturity beyond his years.

    Ronna says: "best book to come along this year!!"

    It is up there at the very top.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It revolved around a family and the people in the town and also it had mystery in it too.
    I really liked the family.


    What does Rich Orlow bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Oh Rich Orlow's voice! This was a great story, but with Rich Orlow reading it, I was mesmerized. I stayed up all through the night listening to him. I could not quit listening to him. Now I am reviewing other books he has narrated. Just listen to him and you will also be addicted to his voice.


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

    Yes, it was. It was approx 10 hour book. I have never listened to a book that long. It was an all nighter and part of the morning. I had the luxury of not working today so I could finishing listening to Rich Orlow's engaging voice.


    Any additional comments?

    Be sure to listen to this book. You won't regret it.
