“This remarkable journey into mythology brings the ancient gods directly and viscerally into the present. Circe is a perfect mashup of elegant language, glorious storytelling, and exquisitely modern sensibilities. Miller's telling left me awed and moved by Circe and her story, all while wishing I could invite her over for a glass of wine on the porch. How this amazing author so perfectly melds the human and the divine, creating a story both immediate and epic, is dazzling.”Beth Albrecht, The Magic Tree Bookstore

“There There is the kind of book that grabs you from the start and doesn’t let go, even after you’ve turned the last page. It is a work of fiction, but every word of it feels true. Tommy Orange writes with a palpable anger and pain, telling the history of a cultural trauma handed down through generations in the blood and bones and stories of individual lives. He also writes with incredible heart and humor, infusing his characters with a tangible humanity and moments of joy even as they are headed toward tragedy. There There has claimed a permanent spot in my heart despite having broken it, or maybe because it did. I think this may be the best book I’ve ever read.”Heather Weldon, Changing Hands

The Engineer's Wife
Narrated by Libby McKnight / 14 hours
“The Engineer’s Wife by Tracey Enerson Wood offers a fascinating snapshot of a woman’s perspective from a time period not often written about - just after the Civil War. Men and women’s roles were in flux, it was the dawn of the industrial revolution, and the suffrage movement was taking off. And here comes a woman, thrust into a man’s role, succeeding despite the odds, and struggling to both find herself in the project and embrace who she is becoming as a result. A thorough author’s note succinctly explains the historical fact versus the artistic liberty; for instance, while P.T. Barnum was a prominent figure at the same time, there is no historical record to suggest he and Emily ever met. This is responsible historical fiction, and offers an exciting and original viewpoint and timeline of a real woman’s role in history.”BrocheAroe, River Dog Book Co.
