In honor of Pride Month I decided to do a series of fiction and film recommendation list to the blog. This week I've created a list of science fiction/fantasy, romance, and poetry/short story anthologies. Two weeks ago I did adult fiction, young adult fiction, and graphic novels. Next week will be the final post about video media.
Emily, a young woman from an upper-class British family during World War I, falls in love with Robbie, an Australian pilot, to her parents' disapproval. When he's sent back to the war, she enlists as a land girl, working on farms while the men are away at war. She is assigned to take care of the garden at the estate of a reclusive old woman, and there she discovers a mystery related to the previous inhabitant of the cottage where she lives.

Can Aimée clear the woman she thinks is her sister?
I recently discovered that U-M got a newish audiobook provider, EBSCO Audiobooks. In honor of my belated discovery I wanted to talk about this format. In this post I will go through my exploration of the medium and give some tips and tricks for trying out audiobooks. I hope you will be inspired to try them yourself!
