    Lady Susan Vernon is a selfish, attractive, and unscrupulous widow, on the hunt for a new husband.

    "In audio, it is a particular delight, as it showcases Austen's subversive and rapier wit and her strong ability to create character out of dialogue alone. The catty cat-and-mouse plot makes a wonderful, brief spree of a listen, and Landor excels in creating the various tonal implications of the letters that make up the story. Spanning just two discs, and two and one-half hours, it is a perfect confection." - Booklist, Starred Review

    The Last Day of the Soviet Union

    Conor O'Clery has written a unique and truly suspenseful thriller of the day the Soviet Union died.

    "Shrewd political history...O'Clery presents a colorful human-scale saga, full of pathos and pettiness. (As Gorbachev was preparing his farewell address, Yeltsin sent minions to evict his family from their dacha.) But he also illuminates larger historical forces: the revival of nationalist politics in the breakaway Soviet republics; the desperate food shortages as the command economy lost its authority; the social enervation that left no one willing to defend the Soviet system by force. The result is a revealing portrait of one of history's greatest upheavals." - Publishers Weekly

At the conclusion, she describes some of St. Patrick's miracles, one to an illustrated box.
