If you’re too busy to sit and read a book, or on the road a lot, audiobooks are a good option. The library’s collection isn’t infinite, so the librarians choose about a dozen books on CD every other month to supplement our selection. Right now we have Rescue by Anita Shreve in an unabridged version for your listening pleasure. Rescue tells the story of Peter, his ex-wife Shelia, and their daughter Rowan. As a rookie paramedic, Peter pulled Shelia out of the wreckage of a car crash and the two fell in madly love, married, and had a daughter. The story picks up eighteen years later. Shelia is long gone, and Peter is having trouble pulling Rowan back on track to their ordered lives. But then Shelia returns. Is her presence a God-send, or will the unresolved problems from the divorce make things worse? It’s always a good idea to select a compelling story to listen to in audiobook form – especially if you’re driving and need an antidote to boredom. This title will keep you hooked to the action of the heart right through to the end. At seven and a half hours, this title could definitely get you out to Denver, or even to Kansas City and back. If a family drama is not your type of story, be sure to check out other rotating CD titles we have for science fiction, western, and inspirational stories.
You can get the audiobook reviewed here and more great titles in both our permanent and rotating collection to watch, read, listen to, or play with at the Port Library at 1718 N. Hersey in Beloit, on the North Campus. This is director Rachel Malay, saying “Thanks for checking us out!”
