Publisher's Summary

Recipient of 3 awards, Beyond All Desiring reveals the deep secrets of Sara, a woman who was "different" in a time of conformity. When Sara's niece, Janice, is notified that her sharp-witted aunt, now in her 80s, hasn't been seen for several days, Janice's panicky drive to find out what's happened begins our journey of discovering that Sara has led a life very different from what her relatives and friends assume. Historical events of the 20th century form a backdrop to Sara's often tumultuous personal life. As Sara visits a museum exhibit about Buddhism, we learn of her two marriages, the first to an abusive man and the second to a kinder man involved in top secret projects, who develops a bizarre illness. We discover Sara's long but secret love relationship with a woman. And we learn of hidden booklets that hold the key to yet another secret. Judith Laura's writing in this novel is stylistically innovative, realistic and magical, erotic and spiritual.

    "Great Story! Great Narrator!"
    Would you listen to Beyond All Desiring again? Why?

    Yes


    What other book might you compare Beyond All Desiring to and why?

    I don't think I have listened to or read a book quite like this one. I think people judge a person by what they visually see. Aunt Sara proves this practice to be wrong.


    Which character – as performed by Christy Lynn – was your favorite?

    Aunt Sara


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

    I did listen to this book in one day.

    "Well fleshed out and believable characters"
    Would you listen to Beyond All Desiring again? Why?

    Absolutely! Ms. Lynn is one of my favorite readers. Which is what prompted me to buy Beyond All Desiring but it was the depth of the characters that had me hooked. I look forward to visiting this book again.
