“If you love beautiful English country houses full of secrets, you’ll devour The Au Pair. Rumors have always surrounded the family that lives at Summerbourne.

The answers to that question might lie with the au pair who took care of her older brother, Edwin. When Seraphine starts looking into the past, she doesn’t realize the danger it will pose to her and her family. Rous immediately throws you into the fray with Seraphine’s family, and it won’t take long before you’re furiously flipping the pages to find out what happens.”

To Keep the Sun Alive

“Set during the Iranian Revolution, To Keep the Sun Alive is a beautifully written family epic that will completely wrap you up. It’s a sweeping novel about identity and tradition, and it’s full of characters you won’t soon forget. Ghaffari masterfully blends the historical with the imagined, and her writing is wise and precise. An excellent novel!”

In an Absent Dream

Wayward Children: Book #4
By Seanan McGuire
Narrated by Cynthia Hopkins /  4 hours 57 minutes

In an Absent Dream

“Seanan McGuire’s fourth installment in the lovely, spare Wayward Children series might be my favorite yet. Lundy is a returning character from the first book, and knowing how her story ends makes the journey to the end that much more poignant. This book, as well as the entire series, illustrates just how much we are defined both by the choices we make and the choices we refuse to make. Beautifully written, atmospheric, and just long enough to leave you longing for more, In an Absent Dream is perfect winter reading.”
