Eighteen-year-old Devi Bennett is surrounded by mysteries: her unknown heritage, a recurring dream about an African tribal ceremony, an inexplicable attachment to a certain tree and a psychic ability she'll never understand - unless she finds her biological parents. Things take a shocking turn when she meets Baron, an intense and alluring energy healer who receives prophetic dreams which all seem connected to her.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Order of Seven?

I felt that the explanation of the initial meeting between Baron & Devi was one of the most memorable moment's the author and narrator captured the essence of the moment and the power of young magnetic attraction to a T.

Have you listened to any of Laurie Catherine Winkel’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to one other book narrated by Laurie Catherine Winkel, and her performance in this one is just as stellar. Very gifted voice artist.

Any additional comments?

Love love loved Laurie Catherine Winkel's narration of the book. In what might have otherwise seemed a tad below the writing standard I prefer, her voice and activation of the different characters and personalities was fantastic. Might need to work on that Aussie accent a bit, but otherwise she captured the heart of each character flawlessly.

One of the 20th century's most challenging novels of ideas, The Fountainhead champions the cause of individualism through the story of a gifted young architect who defies the tyranny of conventional public opinion. The struggle for personal integrity in a world that values conformity above creativity is powerfully illustrated through three characters: Howard Roarke, a genius; Gail Wynand, a newspaper mogul and self-made millionaire; and Dominique Francon, a devastating beauty.

I was a huge fan of Atlas Shrugged and it made me want to read more Ayn Rand. Christopher Hurt did an excellent job narrating, although I would have loved a little more variety in the character of the voices. I will be looking for more in the future!
