A Laughing Matter of Pain
Cynthia Hilston
Narrator: Brian Callanan
HISTORICAL: As this audiobook begins in the 1920’s in Cleveland, Ohio, it’s pretty clear there will be a reckoning in Harry Rechthart’s future. He is filled with jealousy of his older brother, with hurt at being ignored and misjudged by his family, and with laughter to cover his pain. He falls in with a crowd that definitely doesn’t want him to be his best self.
A Knight's Temptation (Knight’s Series Book 3)

HISTORICAL: This audiobook starts with an intense and heart-wrenching prologue that pulls readers into the story unequivocally. The story begins in Moydenshire, England, in 1183, where Lady Leona Ransley and Aldwin Treynarde meet for the first time as children. Something unfortunate happens that day that affects both of these protagonists for years to come.
