Simon the Fiddler
Narrated by Grover Gardner / 11 hours 36 minutes
“Simon Boudlin’s passion is to be the best fiddle player there is, beholden to no one and following his muse wherever it takes him. But when he meets the beautiful Doris Aherne, his plans change. Paulette Jiles once again captures the great promise and sweeping beauty of the Texas frontier in cinematic prose as poetic and lyrical as the tunes that pour forth from the fiddler himself. Simon joins that great pantheon of strivers for a better life, and readers will root for him every step of the way. Fans of News of the World can rejoice — with Simon the Fiddler, Jiles has done it again!”Peter Sherman, Wellesley Books

A Saga of Churchill, Family, and Defiance During the Blitz
By Erik Larson
Narrated by John Lee & Erik Larson / 17 hours 42 minutes
“Erik Larson has done it again! With years of impeccable research into diaries, archives, dossiers, biographies, and official British documents, he has presented an intimate and detailed account of Winston Churchill in his first years as prime minister as he dealt with the London Blitz and his own personal and family issues.

The Splendid and the Vile reads like an engrossing novel, with all the fascinating details and facts that Erik Larson can provide.”Gail Meyer, The Bookstore Plus Music & Art
