Talking book - CD:Blood Magick:2019:Talking book ed.
Author: Roberts, Nora
Author: Ericksen, Susan
Year 2019
Description: Complete and unabridged Read by Susan Ericksen County Mayo is rich in the traditions of Ireland, legends that Branna O'Dwyer fully embraces in her life and in her work as the proprietor of The Dark Witch shop, which carries soaps, lotions, and candles for tourists, made with Branna's special touch. Branna's strength and selflessness hold together a close circle of friends and family - along with their horses and hawks and her beloved hound. But there's a single missing link in the chain of her life: love... She had it once - for a moment - with Finbar Burke, but a shared future is forbidden by history and blood.

Talking book - CD:In the Full Light of the Sun:2019:Talking book ed.
Author: Clark, Clare
Author: Burnip, Richard
Author: Duff, Helen
Author: Keeble, Jonathan
Year 2019
Description: Complete and unabridged In the Full Light of the Sun follows the fortunes of three Berliners caught up in a devastating scandal of 1930s' Germany. It tells the story of Emmeline, a wayward, young art student; Julius, an anxious, middle-aged art expert; and a mysterious art dealer named Rachmann who are at the heart of Weimar Berlin at its hedonistic, politically turbulent apogee and are whipped up into excitement over the surprising discovery of 32 previously unknown paintings by Vincent van Gogh. Based on a true story, unfolding through the subsequent rise of Hitler and the Nazis, this gripping tale is about beauty and justice, and the truth that may be found when our most treasured beliefs are revealed as illusions.
