“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
“Women in the Castle tells the stories of two German women widowed during World War II. Their disparate backstories reveal so much about the German reaction to Hitler, Nazism and the War both during Hitler’s rise and after Germany’s demise. For one woman, Hitler’s vision (at the beginning) of a strong nation built on physical fitness and outdoor activities was so appealing until reality showed a more sinister motivation. Another woman was a resistor from the start, but even she paid a high price for her righteousness. These lives, so different, yet so intertwined are fascinating to behold. A new twist on an old story.”Phyllis, Wellesley Books
