By Ron Rash
Narrated by Richard Ferrone / 5 hours 21 minutes
“The most overused cliche in the book business is 'page-turner,' so I will ask indulgence when I declare that The Risen by Ron Rash is a page-turner in the truest sense of the phrase. The Risen explores a young boy's coming of age, sibling rivalry, a decades-old mystery, and extreme life choices. It is an exciting read for all who appreciate literature at its finest.”Jake Reiss, The Alabama Booksmith
Narrated by Kate Lock / 12 hours 24 minutes

In this beautiful, haunting novel, Donohue weaves a tale of misguided faith and duty, exploited innocence, and redemptive love. What is the secret behind Anna's mysterious ability to survive? The truth is uncovered as The Wonder propels readers to a shocking conclusion.”Cathy Langer, Tattered Cover
