The Great Alone

A Novel

By Kristin Hannah
Narrated by: Julia Whelan
Length: 15 hours 1 minutes

The Great Alone

“Kristin Hannah's The Great Alone is a powerful, compelling story of survival - survival of the natural elements and of the human spirit. It's 1974, and 13-year-old Leni Allbright lives with her devoted mother, Cora, and abusive father, Ernt, who was a prisoner of war during Vietnam. America is changing after the war, and Ernt thinks their best chance at a fresh start is to move off the grid, to America's last frontier - Alaska. Grizzlies, wolves, and dropping temperatures are Leni's worries outside of her family's cabin, but as Ernt's battle with his demons rages on, it's no safer inside. The result is a beautifully descriptive, heart-wrenching adventure.”

The Talented Miss Farwell

A Novel

By Emily Gray Tedrowe
Narrated by: Allyson Ryan
Length: 9 hours 55 minutes

If you enjoyed Catch Me If You Can, then you’ll love The Talented Miss Farwell.

“The Talented Miss Farwell is a fascinating exploration of how one bad decision "just this once" can turn into years of deception and a double life. Inspired by the real life story of a small town comptroller that stole ("borrowed") millions to finance her penchant for horses, Emily Gray Tedrowe takes the reader through all of the steps that could allow this to happen. The Talented Miss Farwell was a suspenseful page turner told with a surprising level of empathy; at least until things get completely out of control.”

The Lost Girls of Paris

A Novel

By Pam Jenoff
Narrated by: Elizabeth Knowelden, Henrietta Meire & Candace Thaxton
Length: 11 hours 41 minutes

The Lost Girls of Paris

“Pam Jenoff specializes in finding a piece of history that has not been fully explored and that often leaves one thinking truth is stranger than fiction. In The Lost Girls of Paris, she returns to WWII but this time her protagonists are a group of British women recruited to blend into the French countryside and sabotage the Nazi network in preparation for D-Day. The story, told from the perspective of three women, ties up a whodunit in a satisfying knot with a little romance, but it’s really a lot more about women finding out who they are and what role they can play in making a difference in the world.”

The Paris Library

A Novel

By Janet Skeslien Charles
Narrated by: Nicky Diss, Sarah Feathers, Esther Wane & Janet Skeslien Charles
Length: 11 hours 53 minutes

The Paris Library

“I can’t think of a more perfect novel to recommend to book lovers than The Paris Library! Not only does it bring to life the true story of the heroic librarians of the American Library in Nazi-occupied Paris, its interwoven narrative of a bereft teenager in 1980s Montana who finds a kindred spirit in her mysterious, reclusive, and book-loving French neighbor is a feat of extraordinary storytelling. The Paris Library is a testament to the everlasting power of literature and literary places to bring people together and be a home for everyone, even during our darkest, most hopeless, and divided times.”
