The adventures of Laura Ingalls and her family continue as they move from their little house on the banks of Plum Creek to the wilderness of the unsettled Dakota Territory. Here Pa works on the new railroad until he finds a homestead claim that is perfect for their new little house. Laura takes her first train ride as she, her sisters, and their mother come out to live with Pa on the shores of Silver Lake. After a lonely winter in the surveyors' house, Pa puts up the first building in what will soon be a brand-new town on the beautiful shores of Silver Lake.
when I was younger our teachers read the Laura Ingalls Wilder stories to us in class. This just brings back lots of good memories.
The adventures of Laura Ingalls and her family continue as they leave their little house on the prairie and travel in their covered wagon to Minnesota. Here they settle in a little house made of sod beside the banks of beautiful Plum Creek. Soon Pa builds a wonderful new little house with real glass windows and a hinged door. Laura and her sister Mary go to school, help with the chores, and fish in the creek.
Enjoyed listening as much as reading about the Ingalls family. Cherry Jones does a great job!
Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127, Hawaii to Newark, she’s knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she’s flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he’s dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. And a ragtag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying.
What made the experience of listening to Explosive Eighteen the most enjoyable?
I look forward to each new episode, it's like visiting family and catching up.
Any additional comments?
It's probably time to end the series while it's on top. The books seem to get shorter and Stephanie has been in so many jams they are starting to seem the same. It was cute when she couldn't chose between Joe and Ranger for awhile, but in the last few books, it gets old and she begins to look like a emotionally immature loser. Lula is always funny but even her overeating, tasering personality is becoming somewhat repetative.
In Trace, Kay Scarpetta travels to Richmond, Virginia, at the odd behest of the recently appointed Chief Medical Examiner, who claims that he needs her help to solve a perplexing crime. When she arrives, however, Scarpetta finds that nothing is as she expected: her former lab is in the final stages of demolition; the inept chief isn't the one who requested her after all; her old assistant chief has developed personal problems that he won't reveal; and a glamorous FBI agent meddles with the case.
I have read all of the Kay Scarpetta novels and this is not Ms. Cornwell's best work. The ending is uneventful and it just doesn't have the zing of previous books. It's okay, but I expect more from Patricia Cornwell

Welcome to Echo Falls. Home of a thousand secrets, where Ingrid Levin-Hill, super sleuth, never knows what will happen next.
This is a very sweet story about a young woman on the trail of a mystery. The main character is a teen ager, but her problems are grown up and she manages to get caught up in some fun situations. A great story, a fabulous narrator. Would be good for teen or adult listener!!
