Wonderful Random House packages keep showing up on my doorstep, this one bearing the Lilac Girls Books on Tape audiobook. It’s gorgeous, packed in a sleek gray case, the perfect little sister to the hardcover.
I popped the first CD into my desktop and started listening to the incredible Cassandra Campbell read Chapter One. A lovely, surreal moment. Can’t wait to hear the other two narrators, Kathleen Gati (of General Hospital fame) who plays the Polish character Kasia and Kathrin Hana who plays Herta.
The cover says it is 17 1/2 hours long…my husband and I are going to settle in tonight and listen. Hard to believe this is actually happening. It will be available the same day as the hardcover and ebook–April 5th.
