The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy

Montague Siblings: Book #2
By Mackenzi Lee
Narrated by Moira Quirk /  11 hours 16 minutes

The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy

“Mackenzi Lee has done it again! The Montagues are back and ready for business. This time we follow Felicity Montague and her dream of working in medicine. Felicity knows what she wants to do with her life, but because it’s a “man’s world” she isn’t allowed to follow her dream. But she doesn’t let this stop her, or discourage her. In fact it only fuels her fire. She is determined to show all of those who say she cant, or that this is a “flighting fancy,” that she is just as skilled as a man. To do this she has to get to an old friend’s wedding across Europe and convince the groom-to-be that she is as amazing as she knows she is. But the adventure doesn’t stop there. Like Monty’s book, Lady’s Guide, shows that it’s okay to be different and that being a strong female isn’t something to be ashamed of, nor is it something to fear. This book has everything; girl-gangs, pirates, sea monsters.”

The Silence of the Girls

A Novel
By Pat Barker
Narrated by Kristin Atherton & Michael Fox /  10 hours 44 minutes

The Silence of the Girls

“The women in Homer’s Iliad hardly ever speak; we are not privy to their thoughts, feelings, or anguish as expressed in their own words. Until now. The Silence of the Girls depicts moments of the Trojan War through the eyes of the female captives at the mercy of the men who have slaughtered their husbands, fathers, brothers, and sons, as they carve out new lives in the wake of war’s devastation. The focus of Barker’s novel is Briseis, through whose eyes we see, up close, the rift between Agamemnon and Achilles, the bond between Achilles and Patroclus, and the complex, beautiful support system the captured women weave together. Barker’s novel is a masterpiece of resilience, determination, fury, healing, and complicated, completely human characters.”

Transcription

A Novel
By Kate Atkinson
Narrated by Fenella Woolgar /  11 hours 9 minutes

Transcription

“In Transcription, Kate Atkinson brings the past of mid-20th-century Britian so thoroughly to life that she almost seems to be reporting rather than inventing. Her details are so rich and her hand so certain that, as readers, we are there — we are walking those streets, sitting in those smoky rooms. And, most of all, we are completely caught up in the emotional power of the tensions and fears of that past. With Juliet Armstrong, Atkinson has given us a remarkable addition to the canon of British spies.”
