The haunting tale of a desolate cottage, and the hair-thin junction between this life and the next, from best-selling National Book Award finalist Gail Godwin. After his mother´s death, 11-year-old Marcus is sent to live on a small South Carolina island with his great aunt, a reclusive painter with a haunted past. Aunt Charlotte, otherwise a woman of few words, points out a ruined cottage, telling Marcus she had visited it regularly after she´d moved there 30 years ago because it matched the ruin of her own life. Eventually she was inspired to take up painting so she could capture its utter desolation. The islanders call it ´Grief Cottage´, because a boy and his parents disappeared from it during a hurricane 50 years before. Their bodies were never found, and the cottage has stood empty ever since. During his lonely hours while Aunt Charlotte is in her studio painting and keeping her demons at bay, Marcus visits the cottage daily, building up his courage by coming ever closer, even after the ghost of the boy who died seems to reveal himself. Full of curiosity and open to the unfamiliar and uncanny given the recent upending of his life, he courts the ghost boy, never certain whether the ghost is friendly or follows some sinister agenda. Grief Cottage is the best sort of ghost story, but it is far more than that - an investigation of grief, remorse, and the memories that haunt us. The power and beauty of this artful novel wash over the listener like the waves on a South Carolina beach. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jacob York.

You often hear, ´´Happy Holidays´´, or ´´Merry Christmas´´, although many feel anything but happy or merry at this season - or at any season - due to loss in their lives. The Christmas or holiday season, when people gather with friends and family, accentuates the losses we feel. This is due to the absence or the longing to be with those who are not with us at this season. Whether it is a death, a divorce, a loss of a job, or a move that separates us from those we miss and love, the holidays can be joyous on the outside but agony inside. Some can pretend, while others just cannot, due to the pain. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Denise Washington Blomberg.

Here he is, husband and father, scruffy romantic, a shambolic scholar - a man adrift in the wake of his wife´s sudden, accidental death. And there are his two sons who like him struggle in their London apartment to face the unbearable sadness that has engulfed them. The father imagines a future of well-meaning visitors and emptiness, while the boys wander, savage and unsupervised. In this moment of violent despair they are visited by Crow - antagonist, trickster, goad, protector, therapist, and babysitter. This self-described ´´sentimental bird´´, at once wild and tender, who ´´finds humans dull except in grief´´, threatens to stay with the wounded family until they no longer need him. As weeks turn to months and the pain of loss lessens with the balm of memories, Crow´s efforts are rewarded and the little unit of three begins to recover: Dad resumes his book about the poet Ted Hughes; the boys get on with it, grow up. Part novella, part polyphonic fable, part essay on grief, Max Porter´s extraordinary debut combines compassion and bravura style to dazzling effect. Full of angular wit and profound truths, Grief Is the Thing with Feathers is a startlingly original and haunting debut by a significant new talent. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jot Davies.

But he plays the South Seas game not for the gold, but for the game´s sake and for the daring life of the island rover.
