The Dream Daughter

I just finished this compelling novel which I could barely put down! What a twisty story and a good crossover choice for those who enjoy domestic fiction and who don’t mind a bit of science fiction thrown in. This thought provoking novel will please fans of Jodi Picoult, Chris Bohjalian and Kristin Hannah.

Years after growing up in the care of a group of mysterious protectors who served in vague ways during World War II, a young man endeavors to piece together the truth about his parents and the unconventional education he received . Mesmerizing from the first sentence, rife with poignant insights and satisfying subplots, this novel about secrets and loss may be Ondaatje's best work yet. Dramatic, haunting, and superbly written – literary fiction at its best!

The Wild Robot

A welcome break from the news – total escapism! I LOVED this beautiful story, even more so in audio format. A heartwarming and action packed middle grade novel which delicately raises questions about the environment, the role of technology in our world and what it truly means to be alive.  Kate Atwater's narration is exquisite, not to mention the spellbinding music and sound effects. Can't wait to listen to the next in the series! (Adult Fiction Audiobooks)
