In 19th-century England, Alaina Claiborne had a loving family, a cherished friend, and idyllic life. Then tragedy strikes and her world is changed. Searching for those responsible is her only focus, until she meets Tristan. Tristan Sheffield, a man of many talents, seeks out those who don't want to be found. His past is filled with secrets and deeds he would rather leave deeply buried. However, when his life unexpectedly entwines with Alaina's, he soon discovers they share more than a desire to catch a murderer.

I loved listening to Alaina Claiborne. The story had me hooked from the very beginning. The author did a wonderful job bringing the characters to life for me. Hopefully Book 2, BLACKWOOD CROSSING and Book 3, CLAYTON'S HONOR will be on audible soon. I would love to listen to the rest of the series.

What an intriguing story that certainly kept my interest with all of the twists and turns. A well-written romance that was perfect for a summer listen. The reader was very, very good. I will definitely read more books by Lucinda Brant and hope to start listening to the sequel, Salt Redux, very soon. Need to find out what happens to the Earl and his family. I also want to search out more books read b Marian Hussey.

Historical fact-based fiction about the famous spy who played a key role in Stonewall Jackson's Valley Campaign. This narrative takes place between July 1861 and July 1862 and is the first in a series about the Confederate Secret Service and the women who were its most effective agents. Belle Boyd was the first woman in American History to be formally commissioned an army officer.

This was a very good listen. I would have given it a 5 except for the shocking change in writing style describing Belle's interactions with the character Daniel Kileya and two others. They were totally out of context with the style of the rest of the story and very jarring when you arrive at those parts when listening to the book. If these scenes were written in the style of the rest of the book, I would highly recommend it without condition. Both readers were excellent. I am definitely going to read and/or listen to more books by this author.

PEN-Faulkner Award-winning author T. Coraghessan Boyle weaves together the stories of two families in Southern California: one affluent, the other destitute. As Boyle creates a counterpoint of personal needs, civic responsibility, and social custom, each family's quest for the American Dream fuels deep fear and anger that ultimately lead to a perilous confrontation.

The reader was amazing and brought the story to life. An interesting look at the life of some Mexicans in California.
