Hum If You Don't Know the Words

By Bianca Marais
Narrated by: Bahni Turpin & Katharine Lee McEwan
Length: 14 hours 24 minutes

Hum If You Don't Know the Words

“Hum If You Don't Know the Words is a marvel. Set in South Africa in 1978, this is the story of Robin, a white child, and Beauty, a black mother, both of whom experience immense loss after the Soweto student uprising. Bianca Marais has written a book about apartheid - a book about tragedy, injustice, grief, and survival - that manages to sparkle with wit, warmth, and charming secondary characters. Readers will love this rare and rewarding gem.”

The Light We Lost

By Jill Santopolo
Narrated by: Jill Santopolo
Length: 7 hours 15 minutes

The Light We Lost

“As soon as I saw this book mentioned and compared to One Day, I leapt onto Netgalley to beg for an advance copy, which the good people at Penguin Random House granted me immediately. I knew I’d love it, and I was right: it’s a novel that explores that age-old dilemma of steady, comfortable, dependable, good-enough love, versus the explosive, amazing, once-in-a-lifetime love that breaks your heart.”

If, Then

A Novel

By Kate Hope Day
Narrated by: Rebecca Lowman
Length: 8 hours 31 minutes

If, Then

“I devoured this book. Reading about these characters felt like stepping right into other lives, with all of the messiness of human striving and relationships. If, Then is a beautiful novel for this alone, but when each character begins to see visions they don’t understand, the book takes on a new sense of urgency. Driven by its characters and with a masterfully written thread of speculative fiction, If, Then is a moving look at how events large and small and the choices we make carve our unique lives out of the infinite number of possible lives that could have been.”
