Migrations

A Novel

By Charlotte McConaghy
Narrated by: Barrie Kreinik
Length: 8 hours 48 minutes

Migrations

“Imagine a world where almost all the animals have disappeared. Imagine a love strong enough to believe it can make a difference. In a fragile, near-future world, author Charlotte McConaghy gives us Franny Stone, a character as wild and broken as the few remaining Arctic terns she is determined to follow on what will most likely be their last migration. Franny’s quest is as epic as Captain Ahab’s, and while it leaves much destruction in its wake, it is ultimately a quest toward life. Migrations is a book so beautiful it will leave you breathless. Breathless with cold despair, and breathless with pulsating life and hope. This is a truly stunning debut.”

The Beguiling

By Zsuzsi Gartner
Narrated by: Amanda Cordner
Length: 7 hours 38 minutes

The Beguiling

“Lucy is thrown by the tragic and mysterious death of her beloved cousin, Zoltan, with whom she shared a love for old movies. His murder resembles that of the 1971 film The Beguiled, thus the book’s title. Following his death, Lucy is haunted, then enchanted, by a series of confessions by strangers who approach her out of the blue. As she silently ponders the increasingly shocking stories—which she considers with pitch black humor—Lucy contemplates motherhood, culture, religion (its limitations, its possibilities), life, death, the concept of time, memory and its failings. Each confession is its own vignette—separated by the cawing of crows, the tolling of a clock tower, and percussive clapping rather than by an Act of Contrition. A fascinating picture of humanity narrated flawlessly by Amanda Cordner.”

Once There Were Wolves

A Novel

By Charlotte McConaghy
Narrated by: Saskia Maarleveld
Length: 8 hours 27 minutes

If you enjoyed The Dog Stars, then you’ll love Once There Were Wolves.

“Inti has always relied on tough, talkative Aggie, whether they're with one parent surviving in the wilderness of North America or with the other, a tough cop in Australia. Her sense of security, constantly undermined by her rare neurological disorder - a tactile form of synaesthesia, is fragile at best. We can all relate to Inti's growing fears she faces a parent's illness, her sister's change from strong one to frail one, and the ecological fight of a lifetime. The murder that threatens to undermine her professional project makes Inti question all her certainties (and keeps us guessing until the end!). Like in Mandel's Station Eleven, Heller's The Dog Stars, and McConaghy's earlier novel Migrations, beautiful descriptions of landscapes and tough, edgy questions about ecology enrich a story of a main character searching for strength and trust in a world of disaster, and Inti's story, with its rich parallel themes (book clubs, listen up!) and thriller-speed plot twists, will appeal to a variety of readers.”
