Bone Gap
By Laura Ruby
Read by Dan Bittner
Published by HarperAudio

Summary: Everyone knows Bone Gap is full of gaps–gaps to trip you up, gaps to slide through so you can disappear forever. So when young, beautiful Roza went missing, the people of Bone Gap weren’t surprised. After all, it wasn’t the first time that someone had slipped away and left Finn and Sean O’Sullivan on their own. Just a few years ago, their mother hightailed it to Oregon for a brand-new guy, a brand-new life. That’s just how things go, the people said. Who are you going to blame? Finn knows that’s not what happened with Roza. He knows she was kidnapped, ripped from the cornfields by a dangerous man whose face he cannot remember. But the searches turn up nothing, and no one believes him anymore. Not even Sean, who has more reason to find Roza than anyone and every reason to blame Finn for letting her go.

 

Classic American Short Stories
By O. Henry, Jack London, Ambrose Bierce, Mark Twain, Stephen Crane, Kate Chopin, and James Fenimore Cooper
Read by William Roberts, Garrick Hagon, Liza Ross
Published by Naxos Audiobooks

Summary: A special bundle just for SYNC listeners. Represented here are 16 short stories by seven great American writers, dating from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Different in atmosphere and writing style, they nevertheless caught the mood and concerns of the day in a way that was distinctly American. Kate Chopin’s Regret is a reflective moment in the life of a woman without children, forced to look after children; Bierce’s An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridgeleaves echoes in the imagination; the stories by Crane and London recall the themes of the Civil War and the Klondike for which they are well known. Twain’s humor is to the fore inThe Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County and O. Henry’s sharp observation makes his neat tales a joy to listen to. There is even an elegiac description of an eclipse by James Fenimore Cooper, author of The Last of the Mohicans.
