AudioFile Earphones Award Winner

Listeners, beware: You won't want to stop listening to narrator Julia Whelan's performance of this complex story of survival and family set in a 1970s Alaskan homesteading community. ...With pitch-perfect timing and a touch of drama, Whelan exquisitely builds the tension, creating an enveloping atmosphere of foreboding that's difficult to turn away from...a don't-miss audiobook experience. -AudioFile

[Julia] Whelan ratchets up the suspense in her tense narration of this tale...
This edge-of-your-seat audiobook will keep listeners riveted. -Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

This
epic atmospheric novel examines humans' will to endure the unthinkable. --Real Simple magazine

There are many great things about this book...It will thrill her fans with its combination of Greek tragedy, Romeo and Juliet-like coming of age story and domestic potboiler. She recreates in magical detailthe lives of Alaska's homesteaders...and is just as specific and authentic in her depiction of the spiritual wounds of post-Vietnam America. A tour de force. --Kirkus (starred review)

Hannah vividly evokes the natural beauty and danger of Alaska and paints a compelling portrait of a family in crisis and a community on the brink of change. --Booklist

In this latest from Hannah, the landscape is hard and bleak but our young heroine learns to accept it and discover her true self...fans will appreciate the astuteness of the story and the unbreakable connection between mother and child. --Library Journal

Hannah
skillfully situates the emotional family saga in the events and culture of the late '70s... But it's her tautly drawn characters--Large Marge, Genny, Mad Earl, Tica, Tom--who contribute not only to Leni's improbable survival but to her salvation amid her family's tragedy. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Hannah turns the written word into wonderful prose...Times are difficult for so many in this novel and Hannah captures their suffering with sensitivity. The author expertly shows how love, death and birth run the full circle of life. --RT Book Reviews

Praise for The Nightingale:

Haunting, action-packed, and compelling.--Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Absolutely riveting!...Read this book. --Dr. Miriam Klein Kassenoff, Director of the University of Miami Holocaust Teacher Institute

Beautifully written and richly evocative. --Sara Gruen, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"A heart-pounding story." --USA Today

A respectful and absorbing page-turner. --Kirkus Reviews

Tender, compelling...a satisfying slice of life in Nazi-occupied France. --Jewish Book Council

"Expect to devour The Nightingale in as few sittings as possible; the high-stakes plot and lovable characters won't allow any rest until all of their fates are known." --Shelf Awareness

Powerful...an unforgettable portrait of love and war.--People

I enjoyed [Julie Whelan's] beautifully articulate voice which is a perfect way to enjoy this epic tale as she dots all her Is and crosses her Ts and gives an unforgettably emotional rendition of the novel bringing to life the absolute enormousness of Alaska. Her vocal interpretations are remarkable and she catches both female and male intonations perfectly but her child voice is absolutely amazing. -The Reading Frenzy
