We are delighted to discover this great summer listen, and we recommend it as an audiobook that will stay with you. Janet Metzger masterfully narrates Elizabeth Poliner’s captivating, nuanced story of a tragedy that strikes at the heart of a close-knit Jewish family. Metzger adopts the perfect tone of reflective meditation from the novel’s portentous first sentence: “The summer of 1948 my brother Davy was killed in an accident with a man who would have given his own life rather than have it happen.” Listen to a sound clip and read our full review here.

We always admire the outward simplicity and underlying resonance of Anna Quindlen’s novels. In a quiet, unaffected performance, narrator Brittany Pressley makes 1960s Miller’s Valley, Pennsylvania, incredibly real. The government is pressuring residents to move because of a plan to flood the town and make it a reservoir. Pulitzer Prize winner Anna Quindlen’s eighth novel is engrossing listening.
