The Venetian Bargain Audiobook

The Venetian Bargain

Author: Marina Fiorato Narrator: Pamela Garelick Release Date: April 2014

Venice, 1576. Five years after the defeat of the Ottoman Empire at the Battle of Lepanto, a ship steals unnoticed into Venice bearing a deadly cargo. A man, more dead than alive, disembarks and staggers into Piazza San Marco. He brings a gift to Venice from Constantinople. Within days the city is infected with bubonic plague—and the Turkish sultan has his revenge. But the ship also holds a secret stowaway—Feyra, a young and beautiful harem doctor fleeing a future as the sultan’s concubine. Only her wits and medical knowledge keep her alive as the plague ravages Venice. In despair, the doge commissions the architect Andrea Palladio to build the greatest church of his career—an offering to God so magnificent that Venice will be saved. But Palladio’s life is in danger too, and it will require all the skills of Annibale Cason, the city’s finest plague doctor, to keep him alive. What Cason had not counted on was meeting Feyra, who is now under Palladio’s protection—an impossible woman whose medical skills and determination are matched only by his own. From Marina Fiorato, author of the acclaimed historical novel The Glassblower of Murano, comes a triumphant return to historical Venice with The Venetian Bargain.

The Cleaner of Chartres Audiobook

The Cleaner of Chartres

Author: Salley Vickers Narrator: Pamela Garelick Release Date: June 2013

There is something very special about Agnès Morel. A quiet presence in the small French town of Chartres, she can be found cleaning the famed medieval cathedral each morning and doing odd jobs for the townspeople. No one knows where she came from or why. Not Abbé Paul, who discovered her one morning twenty years ago, sleeping on the north porch, and not Alain Fleury, the irreverent young restorer who works alongside her each day—and whose attention she catches with her tawny eyes and elusive manner. She has transformed each of their lives in her own subtle way, yet no one suspects the dark secret Agnès is hiding. When an accidental encounter dredges up a series of tragic incidents from Agnès’ youth, the nasty meddling of town gossips threatens to upend the woman’s simple, peaceful life. Her story reveals a terrible loss, a case of mistaken identity, and a cruel and violent act that haunts her past. Agnès wrestles with her own sense of guilt and enduring heartbreak while the citizens piece together the truth about her life. “Subtle and utterly joyous…a contemporary moral and psychological drama every bit as absorbing as Miss Garnet’s Angel.”—Sunday Times (London)

The River of Wind Audiobook

The River of Wind

Author: Kathryn Lasky Narrator: Pamela Garelick Release Date: June 2013

The adventure continues! In a land no owl knew existed, Soren, Coryn, and the Guardians find danger, knowledge, and new allies. Coryn and the Band have returned to the Great Ga’Hoole Tree and restored order. With the ember safely hidden away, the tree shakes off its gaudy golden glow and recovers its natural majesty. Meanwhile, deep in the Palace of Mists, Bess finds an ancient map fragment that reveals that there are not five owl kingdoms—as has been thought since time immemorial—but six. Coryn and the Chaw of Chaws set off to find this unknown land and, in a landscape of perpetual winter, discover a monastery of serene, learned owls, the likes of which no one has ever seen before. “The story’s fast pace, menacing bad guys, and flashes of humor make this a good choice for reluctant readers, while the underlying message about the power of legends provides a unifying element and gives strong appeal for fantasy fans.”—School Library Journal, praise for the series

The Golden Tree Audiobook

The Golden Tree

Author: Kathryn Lasky Narrator: Pamela Garelick Release Date: May 2013

After the time of the legends, the tale of the Guardians returns to the present in which Soren, the hero of books 1-6 in the New York Times bestselling Guardians of Ga'Hoole series, must train a new king. Get ready for old friends and new adventures! Coryn, Soren, and the Band preside over a new golden age of the Great Tree under the subtle influence of the ember. All seems well, but beneath the prosperity of peace, Coryn is tortured by the suspicion that his evil mother, Nyra, is a hagsfiend and that his own blood carries the haggish taint. He wanders afar, searching for the truth from hagsfiends themselves-putting the Great Tree in danger. Soren and the Band follow their new king to strange parts to guard him from the consequences of his obsession. "Lasky has developed a unique series-a fantastical rendering of a world of owls. Characters run the gamut of owl species and each embodies actual traits of that species. Lasky's knowledge and love of owls is obvious...Readers will come away knowing more about these birds."-Children's Literature

The Haunting of Maddy Clare

Author: Simone St. James Narrator: Pamela Garelick Release Date: December 2012

A thrilling debut in women's suspense-a ghost story set in 1920s England Sarah Piper's lonely, threadbare existence changes when her temporary work agency sends her to assist a ghost hunter.

A Far Cry from Kensington Audiobook

A Far Cry from Kensington

Author: Muriel Spark Narrator: Pamela Garelick Release Date: May 2011

Set on the crazier fringes of 1950s literary London, A Far Cry from Kensington is a delight, hilariously portraying love, fraud, death, evil, and transformation. Mrs. Hawkins, the majestic narrator of A Far Cry from Kensington, takes us well in hand and leads us back to her threadbare years in postwar London. There, as a fat and much admired young war widow, she spent her days working for a mad, near-bankrupt publisher ('of very good books') and her nights dispensing advice at her small South Kensington rooming house. At work and at home Mrs. Hawkins soon uncovered evil: shady literary doings and a deadly enemy; anonymous letters, blackmail, and suicide. With aplomb, however, Mrs. Hawkins confidently set about putting things to order, little imagining the mayhem that would ensue. Now decades older, thin, successful, and delighted with life in Italy'quite a far cry from Kensington'Mrs. Hawkins looks back to all those dark doings and recounts how her own life changed forever. She still, however, loves to give advice: 'It's easy to get thin. You eat and drink the same as always, only half'I offer this advice without fee; it is included in the price of this book.' A Far Cry from Kensington has been hailed as 'outstanding' (Observer), 'wickedly and adroitly executed' (New York Times), and 'a comedy that holds a tragedy as an eggcup holds an egg' (Philadelphia Inquirer). 'Wickedly and adroitly executed.''New York Times

The Mayor of Casterbridge Audiobook

The Mayor of Casterbridge

Author: Thomas Hardy Narrator: Pamela Garelick Release Date: May 2011

From its astonishing opening scene in which the drunken Michael Henchard sells his wife and daughter at a country fair to the breathtaking series of discoveries at its conclusion, The Mayor of Casterbridge claims a unique place among Thomas Hardy's finest and most powerful novels. Rooted in an actual case of wife selling in early nineteenth century England, the story builds into an awesome Sophoclean drama of guilt and revenge, in which the strong, willful Henchard rises to a position of wealth and power, only to achieve a most bitter downfall. Proud, obsessed, ultimately committed to his own destruction, Henchard is, as Albert Guerard has said, "Hardy's Lord Jim…his only tragic hero and one of the greatest tragic heroes in all fiction." "The Mayor of Casterbridge is a story of fate. It is Henchard's awful fate to be as he is, a man who seems capable only of turning good fortune to bad. He is a man divided in his nature, so that his worst impulses - the first of which in the novel is, of course, the decision to sell his wife at a fair - rebound against himself. There are many versions available to listen to, as the text, published in 1886, is long out of copyright; I listened to the book unabridged, terrifically read by Pamela Garelick (Blackstone Audio, download from audible.co.uk, £11.69) and I was swept entirely away from my sickbed and deeply into Hardy's Wessex, into the twists and turns of this agonisingly beautiful and affecting book. Hardy's world view is infectious….I am still a little dizzy. Whether from my illness, or from Hardy's brilliance, I could hardly say."-Erica Wagner, Times (London)

The Coming of Hoole: Guardians of Ga'Hoole, Book 10

Author: Kathryn Lasky Narrator: Pamela Garelick Release Date: March 2011

A tale of chaos, betrayal, and nachtmagen unfolds in the second of three ancient legends. It is no idle history, for hidden in its pages are the truths about the great promise-and great danger-that lies just ahead for the Guardians. And so Soren, Coryn, and the members of the Band read on: A grizzled collier will tend a young prince in exile. An owl who would be monk will don battle claws. A mother who is also a queen will raise an army. And under the shower of embers in the shadow of the Sacred Volcanoes, a king will be born-or die. "This is a wonderful fantasy series with a well-wrought secondary world...I will definitely be reading more of Lasky's series."-Children's Literature

Soren is born in the forest of Tyto, a tranquil kingdom where the Barn Owls dwell. But evil lurks in the owl world, and Soren is captured and imprisoned in a dark canyon where there is a mysterious school. It's called an orphanage, but Soren believes it's something far worse. He and his new friend, the clever and scrappy Gylfie, know that the only way out is up. To escape, they will need to do something these fledglings have never done before fly. And so begins a magical journey. Along the way, Soren and Gylfie meet Twilight and Digger. The four owls band together to seek the truth, be reunited with their families, and protect the owl world from a great danger. The Journey, Book Two. It began as a dream, a quest for the Great Ga'Hoole Tree, a mythic place where an order of owls rises each night to perform noble deeds. There, Soren, Gylfie, Twilight, and Digger hope to find inspiration to fight the evil that dwells in the owl kingdom. The journey is long and harrowing. When Soren and his friends finally arrive at the Great Ga'Hoole Tree, they face challenges they never imagined. If they can learn from their leaders and from one another, they will become true Ga'Hoolian owls: honest and brave, wise and true. The Rescue, Book Three. Ever since Soren was kidnapped, he has longed to see his sister, Eglantine. Now, Eglantine is back is Soren's life, but she's been through an ordeal too terrible for words. At the same time, Soren's mentor, Ezylryb, has mysteriously disappeared and may be in danger. Something deep within Soren tells him there is a connection between these mysterious events. To rescue Ezylryb, Soren must face a force more dangerous than anything that even the evil rulers of the owl orphanage could have devised. The story's fast pace, menacing bad guys, and flashes of humor make this a good choice for reluctant readers, while the underlying message about the power of legends provides a unifying element and gives strong appeal for fantasy fans. --School Library Journal
