Every day major headlines tell the story of a new and better American marketplace. Established corporations have begun reevaluating the quality of their products, the ethics of their supply chains, and how they can give back by donating portions of their profits to meaningful causes. Meanwhile millions of entrepreneurs who want a more responsible and compassionate marketplace have launched a new breed of socially focused business models.

In Long Island, a farmer found a duck pond turned red with blood. On the Lower East Side, two boys playing at a pier discovered a floating human torso wrapped tightly in oilcloth. Blueberry pickers near Harlem stumbled upon neatly severed limbs in an overgrown ditch. Clues to a horrifying crime were turning up all over New York, but the police were baffled: There were no witnesses, no motives, no suspects. The grisly finds that began on the afternoon of June 26, 1897, plunged detectives headlong into the era's most perplexing murder.

Once again, Fannie Flagg gives us a story of richly human characters, the saving graces of the once-maligned middle classes and small-town life, and the daily contest between laughter and tears. Fannie truly writes from the heartland, and her storytelling is, to quote Time, "utterly irresistible."

For over twenty years his story has captivated millions, and yet only one person knew the truth behind his remarkable journey - until now.

This book is a very stark reminder of some families who struggle every day with a happy family life. I appreciated Carine's honesty in writing this book, irregardless of her parent's feelings on the matter, and in so doing she keeps her brother's legacy alive.

Would you listen to Thursdays at Eight again? Why?

Yes, definitely! I enjoyed each character, and I'm sure I missed some things I listened to the first time.

What other book might you compare Thursdays at Eight to and why?

Debbie Macomber is a great writer, and I've enjoyed all of her books thus far.

What does Laural Merlington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

OMG! The voices she does makes you really get into the story line, and feels like you're sitting right there at the Tuesday Breakfast Club in the coffee shop...She's a terrific narrator!
