The buzz surrounding Peters’s novel is well-deserved. The further listeners get into the story, the more they’ll appreciate the complex characters struggling to define the concept of parenthood.

The Soul of a Woman

Beautiful and fulfilling; a must-listen for women everywhere.

Effortless: Make It Easier To Do What Matters Most

Though McKeown’s impassioned effort to help listeners lighten their burdens is commendable, his ideas will offer little new to many listeners, especially those already familiar with the solid, “true north” principles and time management quadrants of Steven Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and David Allen’s Getting Things Done. Still, McKeown’s lively, controlled narration and jargon-free, anecdote-filled material will benefit stressed, overworked listeners who might mistakenly believe that 80-hour work weeks build character. Recommended for public libraries.

Hungry Hearts

This is a powerful volume that will be in demand, whether for specific contributors or the inspiration provided by the essays.

The Bad Muslim Discount

Insightful, entertaining, and warmly recommended.

The Sanatorium

A Reese Witherspoon book club pick, this title will be in demand in libraries, but listeners will likely be happier with recent titles by Ruth Ware or Lucy Foley.
