middlemarchMiddlemarch [sound recording from UDPL’s downloadable audiobooks through Overdrive] / by George Eliot. Read by Nadia May.
Another “read at least once in your life” classic. This performance was really well done. Someone famous said that this was the only novel ever written for grown-ups. She might be right. -G.

The Nazi officer ‘ s wife : how one Jewish woman survived the Holocaust / Edith Hahn Beer ; with Susan Dworkin.
Unbelievable tale of one woman’s perseverance and courage in the face of unspeakable evil. Told with a matter-of-fact voice that only increases your sense of horror at the life she and others led. -Ingrid

Orphan train : [a novel] / Christina Baker Kline . A great story that connects a  young foster child and an elderly woman that rode the orphan train. -Sharon

It’s strategically written to capture two perspectives of an event while joining unlikely “friends” together. -Kelli
