The Finest Hours: The True Story of the US Coast Guard’s Most Daring Sea Rescue (by Michael J. Tougias and Casey Sherman) (UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK)

Blackstone Audio, Inc

In the winter of 1952, New England was battered by the most brutal nor’easter in years. As the weather wreaked havoc on land, the freezing Atlantic became a wind-whipped zone of peril, setting the stage for one of the most heroic rescue stories ever lived.

On February 18, while the storm raged, two oil tankers, the Pendleton and the Fort Mercer, were in the same horrifying predicament. Built with “dirty steel,” and not prepared to withstand such ferocious seas, both tankers split in two, leaving the dozens of men on board utterly at the Atlantic’s mercy. The Finest Hours is the gripping, true story of the valiant attempt to rescue the souls huddling inside the broken halves of the two ships.

The spellbinding tale is overflowing with breathtaking scenes, as boats capsize, bows and sterns crash into one another, and men hurl themselves into the raging sea in a terrifying battle for survival.

Not all of the eighty-four men caught at sea in the midst of that brutal storm survived, but considering the odds, it’s a miracle—and a testament to their bravery—that any at all came home to tell their tales.

My Brilliant Friend (by Elena Ferrante) (UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK)

My Brilliant Friend (by Elena Ferrante) (UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK)

Blackstone Audio, Inc

A modern masterpiece from one of Italy’s most acclaimed authors, My Brilliant Friend is a rich, intense, and generous-hearted story about two friends, Elena and Lila, who represent the story of a nation and the nature of friendship.

The story begins in the 1950s in a poor but vibrant neighborhood on the outskirts of Naples. Growing up on these tough streets, the two girls learn to rely on each other ahead of anyone or anything else. As they grow—and as their paths repeatedly diverge and converge—Elena and Lila remain best friends whose respective destinies are reflected and refracted in the other. They are likewise the embodiments of a nation undergoing momentous change. Through the lives of these two women, Ferrante tells the story of a neighborhood, a city, and a country as it is transformed in ways that, in turn, also transform the relationship between her protagonists.

With My Brilliant Friend, the first in a series, Ferrante proves herself to be one of Italy’s greatest storytellers. She has given her readers a masterfully plotted page-turner, abundant and generous in its narrative details and characterizations—a stylish work of literary fiction destined to delight her many fans and win new readers to her work.

H Is for Hawk (by Helen Macdonald) (UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK)

H Is for Hawk (by Helen Macdonald) (UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK)

Blackstone Audio, Inc

When Helen Macdonald’s father died suddenly on a London street, she was devastated. An experienced falconer captivated by hawks since childhood, she’d never before been tempted to train one of the most vicious predators: the goshawk. But in her grief, she saw that the goshawk’s fierce and feral anger mirrored her own. Resolving to purchase and raise the deadly creature as a means to cope with her loss, she adopted Mabel and turned to the guidance of The Once and Future King author T. H. White’s chronicle The Goshawk to begin her journey into Mabel’s world. Projecting herself “in the hawk’s wild mind to tame her” tested the limits of Macdonald’s humanity.

By turns heartbreaking and hilarious, this book is an unflinching account of bereavement, a unique look at the magnetism of an extraordinary beast, and the story of an eccentric falconer and legendary writer. Weaving together obsession, madness, memory, myth, and history, H Is for Hawk is a distinctive, surprising blend of nature writing and memoir from a very gifted writer.

Roots: The Saga of an American Family (by Alex Haley) (UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK)

Roots: The Saga of an American Family (by Alex Haley) (UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK)

Blackstone Audio, Inc

It begins with a birth in an African village in 1750, and ends two centuries later at a funeral in Arkansas. And in that time span, an unforgettable cast of men, women, and children come to life, many of them based on the people from Alex Haley’s own family tree.

When Alex was a boy growing up in Tennessee, his grandmother used to tell him stories about their family, stories that went way back to a man she called “the African” who was taken aboard a slave ship bound for Colonial America. As an adult, Alex spent twelve years searching for documentation that might authenticate what his grandmother had told him. In an astonishing feat of genealogical detective work, he discovered the name of “the African”—Kunta Kinte—as well as the exact location of the village in West Africa from where he was abducted in 1767. Roots is based on the facts of his ancestry, and the six generations of people—slaves and freemen, farmers and lawyers, an architect, a teacher—and one acclaimed author—who descended from Kunta Kinte.

Hiss and Hers (by M. C. Beaton) (UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK)

Hiss and Hers (by M. C. Beaton) (UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK)

Blackstone Audio, Inc

Celebrating the twentieth anniversary of everyone’s favorite sleuth, M. C. Beaton’s Agatha Raisin is as feisty as ever and armed with her famous wit and biting sense of humor. This time, though, there’s some biting of a whole other sort going on. Agatha has fallen head over heels in love. Again. This time, she has her eye on the local gardener, George Marston, but so do other women in their little Cotswold village. Shamelessly determined, Agatha will do anything to get her man, including footing the bill for a charity ball just for the chance to dance with him. And then George doesn’t even show up! Only partly deterred, Agatha goes looking for him, and finds his dead body in a compost heap. Murder is definitely afoot, but this killer chose no ordinary weapon, a poisonous snake delivered the fatal strike. Rising to the occasion, Agatha rallies her little detective agency to find the killer, only to learn that George had quite a complicated love life. But murderously complicated? Well, if she cant have George, at least Agatha can have the satisfaction of confronting the other women and solving the crime.

Walking Wisdom: Three Generations, Two Dogs, and the Search for a Happy Life (by Gotham Chopra and Deepak Chopra) (UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK)

Walking Wisdom: Three Generations, Two Dogs, and the Search for a Happy Life (by Gotham Chopra and Deepak Chopra) (UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK)

Blackstone Audio, Inc

As far back as he can remember, every day of his life someone has asked Gotham Chopra what it was like to have Deepak Chopra as a father. They wanted to know if Gotham is a master practitioner of the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, whether he is in Perfect Health, if he meditates all day—in short, if he lives the perfect spiritual life. The answer is no.

Gotham likes to consider himself pretty normal, but he acknowledges that he and his sister were exposed to the deepest reservoirs of knowledge that his father could find, from the Bible to biology, the Gita to The Great Gatsby. Gotham spent his childhood learning about curiosity and wisdom, open-mindedness and passion. In thinking back on those lessons, and of the many teachers he has had in his life, three come to mind. One, predictably, is his father. The others, not so predictably, are the family dogs: Cleo and Nicholas.

A father himself now, Gotham is charged with the importance of his new role, and the need to contemplate what values and wisdom he can impart to his child. It took grandfather Deepak a while to warm up to the puppy Cleo, but gradually he found in Cleo the embodiment of the philosophies he has written about in his eighty or so books. Deepak identifies twelve canine qualities in Cleo that we would all be well served to nurture in ourselves: joy and playfulness, innocence, devotion and trust, unconditional love, companionship, intuition, acceptance of grief and loss, forgiveness, one-pointed intention and attention, present moment awareness, unfoundedness, communion and higher guidance.

Cold Sassy Tree (by Olive Ann Burns) (UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK)

Cold Sassy Tree (by Olive Ann Burns) (UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK)

Blackstone Audio, Inc

Cold Sassy Tree is the undeniably entertaining and extraordinarily moving account of small-town Southern life in a bygone era. Brimming with characters who are wise and loony, unimpeachably pious and deliciously irreverent, Olive Ann Burns’ charming tale is a classic.

One thing you could depend on in Cold Sassy, Georgia, was that word got around—fast. If the preacher’s wife’s petticoat showed, the ladies would make the talk last a week. But on July 5, 1906, things took a scandalous turn. That was the day E. Rucker Blakeslee, proprietor of the general store and barely three weeks a widower, eloped with Miss Love Simpson—a woman half his age and, worse yet, a Yankee. On that day, fourteen-year-old Will Tweedy’s adventures began, and an unimpeachably pious town came to life.

As the newlyweds’ chaperone, conspirator, and confidant, Will is privy to his renegade grandfather’s second adolescence. Meanwhile, Will does some growing up of his own. He gets run over by a train and lives to tell about it, and he kisses his first girl and survives that too. Olive Ann Burns has given us a timeless, funny, Southern romance.

The Civil War: A Narrative, Vol. 2: Fredericksburg to Meridian (by Shelby Foote) (UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK)

The Civil War: A Narrative, Vol. 2: Fredericksburg to Meridian (by Shelby Foote) (UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOK)

Blackstone Audio, Inc

This second volume in Shelby Foote’s masterfully written history of the Civil War is dominated by the almost continual confrontation of great armies. The Army of the Potomac under Burnside attempts once again to take Richmond, resulting in the bloodbath at Fredericksburg. Then Joe Hooker tries again, only to be repulsed at Chancellorsville as Stonewall Jackson turns his flank—a bitter victory for the South, paid for by the death of Lee’s foremost lieutenant. In the west, Grant’s seven relentless efforts against Vicksburg show Lincoln that he has at last found the killer-general, the man who can “face the arithmetic.” With Vicksburg finally under siege, Lee again invades the North. The three-day conflict at Gettysburg receives book-length attention in a masterly treatment of a key great battle, not as legend has it but as it really was, before it became distorted by controversy and overblown by remembered glory.

This second volume in Shelby Foote’s comprehensive history is a must-listen for anyone interested in one of the bloodiest wars in America’s history.
