Alone and friendless, the Wanderers, servants of Fate, maintain the balance between the supernatural world and mankind's. For millennia the Wanderers protected that balance - but now a renegade Wanderer arises to open the doors between the earth and our greatest nightmares. Years ago Fate scavenged Rafe from the battlefields of Vietnam, handing him over to a mentor he barely knew before the rogue Wanderer slaughtered him.

Would you listen to Wanderers: Ragnarök again? Why?

Probably not since I have so many books to read for the first time just not enough time to reread!

Which scene was your favorite?

Surprisingly I enjoyed the action scenes the best (not my usual interests that's for sure)

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

If I had hours to listen at a time I probably could have!

In the final weeks of 1938, in the shadow of Kristallnacht and imminent war, a heartsick Italian maestro wrote a love song called "Tu Solamente Tu". Its lyrics lamented his forced separation from his wife, the Hungarian ballerina Margit Wolf, in the wake of Mussolini's edict banishing foreign Jews from Italy.

Would you listen to You, Fascinating You again? Why?

I would if I had all the time in the world...but since I don't and there are just too many books on my to read list I will not be.

Which character – as performed by Susan Hanfield – was your favorite?

Margit

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It pulled at the heart strings

Any additional comments?

I listened to this book on Audible.com which was provided to me for my honest review.

I loved listening to this story and the narration was very easy listening as the readers voice was perfect for the character. The story follows a ballerina through her hardships and love (infatuation which is not always returned) with the Italian composer. As Margit is forced to separate from her husband when the Nazis invade the story takes a turn and she is clinging for life and also suffers a separation from her son. This story was hard to listen to at times but none the less it is a historical novel which is fiction but still based around a time in the world when there was a lot of suffering. A great listen!

Eighty-nine-year-old Isabelle McAllister has a big favor to ask her hairdresser, Dorrie. She wants the black single mother to drop everything and drive her from Texas to a funeral in Ohio - tomorrow. Dorrie, fleeing problems of her own and curious about Isabelle’s past, agrees, not knowing it will be a journey that changes both their lives. Isabelle confesses that, as a teen in 1930s Kentucky, she fell in love with Robert Prewitt, a would-be doctor and the black son of her family’s housekeeper - in a town where blacks weren’t allowed after dark. The tale of their forbidden relationship and its tragic consequences just might help Dorrie find her own way.
