Fiction - Audiobook
This British family saga has been awarded a silver medal in the prestigious Readers' Favorite Book Awards.
Considered a troublesome burden, Evelyn Talbot is banished by her family to their remote country house in Yorkshire. Tall Chimneys is hidden in a damp and gloomy hollow. It is outmoded and inconvenient, but Evelyn is determined to save it from the fate of so many stately homes at the time - abandonment or demolition.
Occasional echoes of tumult in the wider world reach their sequestered backwater - the strident cries of political extremists, a furore of royal scandal, rumblings of the European war machine. But their isolated spot seems largely untouched.
At times life is hard - little more than survival. At times it feels enchanted, almost outside of time itself.
The woman and the house shore each other up - until love comes calling, threatening to pull them asunder. Her desertion will spell its demise, but saving Tall Chimneys could mean sacrificing her hope for happiness, even sacrificing herself.
A century later, a distant relative crosses the globe to find the house of his ancestors. What he finds in the strange depression of the moor could change the course of his life forever.
One woman, one house, 100 years.

The Whip is a multi-award winning novel inspired by the true story of Charlotte "Charley" Parkhurst (1812-1879) who lived most of her extraordinary life as a man in the Old West.
As a young woman in Rhode Island, she fell in love with a runaway slave and had his child. He was lynched, her baby killed. The destruction of her family drove her west to California, dressed as a man, to track the killer.
Charley became a renowned stagecoach driver for Wells Fargo. She killed a famous outlaw, had a secret love affair, and lived with a housekeeper who, unaware of her true sex, fell in love with her.
Charley was the first known woman to vote in America in 1868 (as a man). Her grave lies in Watsonville, California.
"I would have done that," Ms. Kondazian said in a telephone interview. "I would have probably put on men's clothes, to be free like a man."
