Description

THE SISTERS FROM HARDSCRABBLE BAY by Beverly Jensen (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

“Profane, loving, hardnosed, and completely beautiful. If you ever loved ‘The Memory Keeper's Daughter’ or ‘The Secret Life of Bees, ’ you have been waiting for this book and just didn't know it.” (Stephen King)

Sisters Idella and Avis Hillock live on the edge of a chilly bluff in 1916 New Brunswick, a hardscrabble world of potato farms, rough men, hard work, and baffling beauty. These stories offer a compelling and wry vision of two remarkable women and evoke the spirit of a time gone by.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator, Bernadette Dunne. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

“Straightforward yet lyric prose and an eye for the crucial detail bring the Hillocks’ world vividly to life.” (Kirkus Reviews)

• EXPERIENCE. About 11.5 hours of narration. Created as a Folium enhancedAudio™ edition, this book includes extra functions and features not found on lesser players.

• PLAYER CONTROLS. Includes listen (play), pause, multi-speed fast forward/reverse, jump ahead/back, chapter skip, volume control, one-touch chapter- and bookmark browser. There is also a “scrub” bar that finds any point inside the chapter with just a tap.

• SLEEP TIMER. Have you ever fallen asleep watching TV or listening to a book? If so, you'll love this feature. Once set, the book will stop, place a bookmark, and allow you to jump back to where you probably began dozing.

• CLEAR & ELEGANT DESIGN. Simple, clean, intuitive, and smarter than average.

• CHAPTER TIMINGS. Always know how much time it will take to finish a chapter. Plus, the progress bar at the top of the screen shows how far into the book you’ve come.

• OFFLINE LISTENING. You are airplane-ready! Once downloaded, listen uninterrupted without threat from a lost network connection. Downloads are usually just 5-10 minutes, but depend upon your network speed.

• AUTO-BOOKMARKING. The player remembers where you stopped listening and returns to that exact spot when you open the book again.

• TELL-A-FRIEND. An easy way to recommend the book to your friends or Twitter feed.

• FEEDBACK. Share your ideas for books, functions, and features. We are very responsive to our listeners and appreciate all feedback and ideas.

RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy inspiring tales of struggle and triumph through hardship.

_

Idella and Avis Hillock live on the edge of a bluff in New Brunswick, a hardscrabble world of potato farms and lobster traps, rough men, hard work, and baffling beauty. From the heartbreaking story of their mother’s crisis in childbirth to the darkly comic story of the siblings’ catastrophic efforts to escort their father’s body to his funeral, these stories offer a compelling vision of two remarkable women. The cast includes Idella’s philandering husband, her exasperating mother-in-law, and Avis, whose serial romantic disasters never quell her irrepressible spirit. Jensen’s work reads like an instant American classic.
