The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown. Read by Kirsten Potter. 9 discs. 10+ hours.
“Three sisters, a scholarly father who breaks into iambic pentameter, and an absentminded but loving mother who brought the girls up in rural Ohio may sound like an idyllic family; however, when Rosalind, Bianca, and Cordelia return home ostensibly to help their parents through their mother's cancer treatment readers begin to see a whole different family…There are no false steps in this debut novel: the humor, lyricism, and realism characterizing this lovely book will appeal to fans of good modern fiction”

You Know When the Men Are Gone by Siobhan Fallon. Read by Cassandra Campbell. 5 discs. 5+ hours.
“The crucial role of military wives becomes clear in Fallon's powerful, resonant debut collection, where the women are linked by absence and a pervading fear that they'll become war widows…Fallon writes with both grit and grace: her depiction of military life is enlivened by telling details, from the early morning sound of boots stomping down the stairs to the large sign that tallies automobile fatalities of troops returned from Iraq. Significant both as war stories and love stories, this collection certifies Fallon as an indisputable talent.”
