ARE YOU LISTENING? DAY" 
I AM EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE TODAY'S 
AUDIO BOOK CHOICE.....

*******************************************
  GIVEAWAY ENDED 
THE WONDER
Read by Kate Lock
BY EMMA DONOGHUE
ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:
In the latest masterpiece by Emma Donoghue, bestselling author of Room, an English nurse brought to a small Irish village to observe what appears to be a miracle-a girl said to have survived without food for months-soon finds herself fighting to save the child's life.

Tourists flock to the cabin of eleven-year-old Anna O'Donnell, who believes herself to be living off manna from heaven, and a journalist is sent to cover the sensation. Lib Wright, a veteran of Florence Nightingale's Crimean campaign, is hired to keep watch over the girl.

Written with all the propulsive tension that made Room a huge bestseller, THE WONDER works beautifully on many levels--a tale of two strangers who transform each other's lives, a powerful psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Born in Dublin in 1969, Emma Donoghue is a writer of contemporary and historical fiction whose novels include the bestselling Slammerkin, The Sealed Letter, Landing, Life Mask, Hood, Stirfry and Frog Music. Her story collections are Astray, The Woman Who Gave Birth to Rabbits, Kissing the Witch, and Touchy Subjects. She also writes literary history, and plays for stage and radio. She lives in London, Ontario, with her partner and their two children.

PRAISE FOR THE WONDER:
‘We can count on her to plumb the heart of human darkness… [a] blaze of romance and drama.’ - Newsday

‘Donoghue is a master of plot, and her prose is especially exquisite in depicting ambiguity. …In The Wonder, Gospel-like in its concern with adversity and hope, miracles are possible–perhaps through God, perhaps through woman.’
– Time

‘Donoghue’s main purpose here is story, story, story, and God bless her for it… The Wonder is a fine, fact-based historical novel, an old-school page turner (I use the phrase without shame.) Donoghue’s grave consideration of the damage religion can do when it crosses the line into superstition lifts that narrative rather than weighing it down.’
– Stephen King, New York Times Book Review

"Deliciously gothic.... Dark and vivid, with complicated characters, this is a novel that lodges itself deep" -USA Today, 3/4 stars

"A fable as lean and discomfiting as Anna's dwindling body.... Donoghue keeps us riveted" -Chicago Tribune

"Donoghue poses powerful questions about faith and belief"-Newsday
 
“The Wonder,” her ninth novel, makes the reader’s heart pound without a gunshot or a gang war. The novel has the kind of haunting quality that keeps drawing you back from the call of the world.’
- New York Times

‘Heartbreaking and heartwarming.’
- The Virginian-Pilot

Hmmm, this would interesting to listen to at Halloween time. Having a child going on a long fast makes it even more scary. It sounds like a frightening psychological thriller.

Looking at all the books and stories that she had written, I am amazed at how she can have so much energy! Even writing a short story requires a lot of work.

I've actually never read any of her books, but I always hear very good things about them!

I'm fascinated by the the examination of the meaning of faith that Emma Donoghue explores in this story.
