By AJ Pearce
Narrated by Anna Popplewell / 9 hours 48 minutes
“What initially seems like a breezy career girl story quickly turns into a gripping novel set in the WWII London blitzkrieg. During the nightly bombing runs, Emmeline volunteers at a nearby fire dispatch center. She dreams of becoming a journalist, but instead lands a day job screening advice-seeking letters for a weekly magazine, Woman’s Friend. All too soon, she and her friends become victims of the bombings and must deal with losses and new horrors each night. In Dear Mrs. Bird, AJ Pearce has given us a most memorable story about both the visible and hidden casualties of war. Recommended for all, including book clubs!”Nancy Simpson-Brice, Book Vault

Sing, Unburied, Sing
By Jesmyn Ward
Narrated by Kelvin Harrison, Jr., Chris Chalk & Rutina Wesley / 8 hours 22 minutes
“Sing, Unburied, Sing is a dark and gorgeous song of love and heartbreak, haunting and tragic and disorienting in its timelessness. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill anchors Ward's tale to Mississippi today, which is almost indistinguishable from its notorious yesterday, a present and past (ironically) made more alive in the novel by ghosts and where everyone suffers from the cancers of buried sins. On Jojo's 13th birthday, while Mam is dying and Pop struggles to keep everyone safe, Leonie plans a road trip to the prison to pick up Michael, Jojo and baby Kayla's father. It's The Odyssey meets the Delta blues meets William Faulkner and Toni Morrison and some ineffable something that is Jesmyn Ward's own magic.”Sara Hinckley, Hudson Booksellers

“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

Meet Ove, a dark, disinterested in life leftover, desperate to find the peace he lacks. Lucky for Ove, his new neighbors don't know how to back up a U-haul trailer. Or, how to control their chatty, chaotic children. Give it a few chapters to unravel the story line and you'll fall hook, line and sinker into this tale. I laughed, I cried...and, once finished, I cried some more. Definitely a must-listen for all of us wishing we could say EXACTLY what we mean, at least once in a lifetime!”Kristin, McLean & Eakin Booksellers
