Length: 12 hours 11 minutes

World Travel

“Like the cowriter Laurie Woolever, I was initially a little skeptical that the world needed this travel guide, but now that I've sampled it I'm so grateful to have a little bit more of Bourdain in the world. While there is some practical advice here (hotel and restaurant suggestions), what I really love is hearing Bourdain's trademark wry humor and utter irreverence. Take a whirlwind tour around the world from Argentina to Vietnam and dozens of countries in between. ”

Fresh Water for Flowers

By Valérie Perrin
Narrated by: Sara Young
Length: 14 hours 41 minutes

Fresh Water for Flowers

Fresh Water for Flowers encompasses so much in each lovely short chapter. Valérie Perrin has written what could be called the perfect novel. At first glance, Violette Toussaint lives an uncomplicated life as the caretaker of a cemetery in a small town in Burgundy. Just as you relax into the luscious descriptions of the gardens, of the tombstone inscriptions, of the fascinating visitors, several love stories hidden in a mystery or two reveal that there are more than funerals at the heart of this book. Perfection!”
