One Two Three

A Novel

By Laurie Frankel
Narrated by: Emma Galvin, Jesse Vilinsky & Rebecca Soler
Length: 14 hours 58 minutes

One Two Three

One Two Three is the story of a town destroyed by the pollution of the town’s river by a chemical plant. A plant that still has not admitted or taken responsibility for the deaths, cancers and birth defects that are higher in Bourne than anywhere else in the country. One would think this would be a very depressing read but Laurie Frankel has written a story that is funny, quirky, totally original and extremely compelling. The main characters are Nora, whose husband worked at the plant and died of cancer, and her now 16-year-old triplets Mab, Monday and Mirabel. Frankel’s portrayal of these characters is what made this book one of the best books I have read. I was amazed at how she was able to turn what should be a total downer into a sweet, funny and charming story about sisters and family and determination. The voices of the triplets will stay with me for a long, long time.”

Matrix

A Novel

By Lauren Groff
Narrated by: Adjoa Andoh
Length: 8 hours 51 minutes

Matrix

“In this brilliant work of historical fiction, Lauren Groff reimagines a 12th century in which Marie of France, scorned by the French court and exiled to an impoverished English abbey, uses her keen intellect and iron will to smash through the patriarchy and become one of the most powerful women of her age...British actress Adjoa Andoh is a brilliant narrator, bringing Marie and her cohort of nuns to life throughout half a century of abbey life. In turns mystic, humorous, and poignant, Groff invites us to ask “what if?” What if women throughout history had been allowed to use their skills and smarts as leaders? What would our society, our religions, look like? Matrix provides a powerful springboard for imagining the possibilities.”

The Four Winds

A Novel

By Kristin Hannah
Narrated by: Julia Whelan
Length: 15 hours 2 minutes

The Four Winds

“A brilliantly woven narrative set during the Dust Bowl years on the High Plains of Texas, The Four Winds is a story of survival that inspires us to persist. Hannah extensively researched the devastation of this climatic and agricultural phenomenon and its toll on communities, which seamlessly informs the deftly woven narrative of the life of Elsa, a woman who finds that she has more tenacity and resourcefulness than she had been raised to believe — and then some.”
