    Story
    (26)

    Michele Norris, host of NPR's All Things Considered, set out to write a book about “the hidden conversation on race” that is going on in this country. But along the way, she unearthed painful family secrets. In what became an intensely personal and bracing journey, Norris traveled from her childhood home in Minneapolis to her ancestral roots in the Deep South to explore “things left unsaid” by her family when she was growing up.

    Jonelle says: "Very revealing look at race in America"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It was ok, I had a hard time getting through it, had to keep coming back just to finish it.


    Has The Grace of Silence turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No not at all.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Not really.


    Did The Grace of Silence inspire you to do anything?

    Nope. It was really kind of boring.

    Story
    (3550)

    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."
    "Can't wait until 2013"
