Kyle Tait, having survived the harrowing, cross-country journey home to his family, must now struggle for existence in a post-EMP world that no one could have imagined just three short months prior. Each day brings new challenges - how to fight the bitter cold, where to scavenge food for the table, and how to best fend off intruders and keep their community safe. As the cold, dark days of winter begin the slow transition to spring, the Tait family is faced with a challenge that dwarfs all others.

Enjoyed this immensely. One character line I noted- It is sad that the author stayed too much to some traditional male/female roles. He could have made Jennifer more like the strong young women I know.

It has been two years since the death of Merritt Heyward's husband, Cal, when she receives unexpected news - Cal's family home in Beaufort, South Carolina, bequeathed by Cal's reclusive grandmother, now belongs to Merritt. Charting the course of an uncertain life - and feeling guilt from her husband's tragic death - Merritt travels from her home in Maine to Beaufort, where the secrets of Cal's unspoken-of past reside among the pluff mud and jasmine of the ancestral Heyward home on the Bluff.

What did you like best about The Sound of Glass? What did you like least?

The descriptions of South Carolina were beautiful as were the wind chimes. The lead female character, Merritt, as a chronic victim from her mother's death & being an abused wife, was over the top and not credible.

Would you ever listen to anything by Karen White again?

Yes.

Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer and Susan Bennett – was your favorite?

Lorelei was wonderful & a well developed character.

Could you see The Sound of Glass being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

NA
