 Downloads for this week will be June 20-June 27. On a personal note, I've been waiting to read Irises, so I'm excited that I can listen to it now! Yay!
 This week's selections are Irises by Francisco X. Stork and Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen.

Two sisters discover what’s truly worth living for in the new novel by the author of Marcelo in the Real World.
TWO SISTERS: Kate is bound for Stanford and an M.D. – if her family will let her go. Mary wants only to stay home and paint. When their loving but repressive father dies, they must figure out how to support themselves and their mother, who is in a permanent vegetative state, and how to get along in all their uneasy sisterhood.
THREE YOUNG MEN: Then three men sway their lives: Kate’s boyfriend Simon offers to marry her, providing much-needed stability. Mary is drawn to Marcos, though she fears his violent past. And Andy tempts Kate with more than romance, recognizing her ambition because it matches his own.
ONE AGONIZING CHOICE: Kate and Mary each find new possibilities and darknesses in their sudden freedom. But it’s Mama’s life that might divide them for good – the question of *if* she lives, and what’s worth living for.
Irises is Francisco X. Stork’s most provocative and courageous novel yet.

AudioFile Magazine Review:
“…Narrator Carrington MacDuffie’s expressive reading is a good match for Kate and Mary, who are each struggling with different aspects of religious faith, family obligations, and personal ambition.”

Irises is paired up with Sense and Sensibility, read by Wanda McCaddon.
