- A Novel
- By: Jojo Moyes
- Narrated by: Susan Lyons, Anna Bentink, Steven Crossley, and others
- Length: 14 hrs and 40 mins
Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life - steady boyfriend, close family - who has never been farther afield than her tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life - big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel - and now he's pretty sure he cannot live the way he is. Will is acerbic, moody, bossy - but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected.
A Journey Into the Unknown
- By Pamela Harvey on 01-13-13
I enjoyed the romantic struggle between Lou and Will and Lou's determination to fulfill a promise that she made to herself and to the contract. I thought the conflict Lou had with her family in the end was a little surprising in light of the love of a mother to child.
I would recommend this book to any suppressed romantic who wants to rekindle a love back into their life.

On Folly Beach
- By: Karen White
- Narrated by: Lyssa Browne
- Length: 14 hrs and 8 mins
Folly Beach, South Carolina, has survived despite hurricanes and war. But it's the personal battles of Folly Beach's residents that have left the most scars, and they are why a young widow has been beckoned there to heal her own. To most people, Folly Beach is simply the last barrier island before reaching the great Atlantic. To some, it's a sanctuary for lost souls, which is why Emmy Hamilton's mother encourages her to buy a local bookstore, Folly's Finds, hoping it will distract Emmy from the loss of her husband.

Compelling and thought provoking
This was one of the most interesting novels I can remember listening to. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the performance of the Narrator, Lyssa Browne ofter brought tears to my eyes. I would ofter find myself thinking about the book through my day and eagerly wanting to get back to listening again. I enjoyed this book as i did Karen White's other novel, The Sound of Broken Glass.
