“The intersection of world history and family history, the interplay of memory and imagination, a tangle of humor and grief, and the blurred and shifting line that separates sanity and madness all come into play in this stunning book. In the months before his death, Chabon's grandfather revealed much of his life to his grandson. On that foundation, Chabon has built a novel filled with family stories, World War II episodes -- including an appearance by Wernher von Braun -- an obsession with rocketry, and a vividly realized, against-all-odds love story. While all the characters are richly developed, the narrator's grandfather -- the brave, eccentric, anger-fueled, and deeply loving center of this novel -- will remain with readers forever.”Banna Rubinow, The River's End Bookstore
The Women in the Castle
Narrated by Cassandra Campbell / 12 hours 38 minutes
“Three war widows and their children help each other survive at the end of World War II in this engaging novel filled with rich period details. Their husbands died as members of the resistance, but aside from that common thread, Marianne, Benita, and Ania bring very different backgrounds to their makeshift home in the castle's kitchen. They also face repercussions from past choices and current secrets. Jessica Shattuck brings us into their world and shows us that the rules for love and loyalty are different in wartime.”Dawn Rennert, The Concord Bookshop

“A family drama that follows the lives and deaths of four siblings, who, when meeting a fortune teller as children were told the date on which they would die, treat that knowledge very differently. This is a beautiful exploration of the role that fate, magic, identity, family, insecurity, culture and location all weave together to create very different lives. I loved the window into each sibling's life, thoughts, feelings and motivation, which then created the story of the entire family. Fascinating and absorbing. A great one to listen to on a road trip (it will make those miles fly by!) or discuss with your book club.”Jessica, Bookbug
