Free sample

When a speech therapist who loves words and real estate decides to stop talking, her world is neither quiet nor less complicated. Love, friendship, psychology, and imagination work as a team in Eavesdropping. This quirky, fast-paced book raises eyebrows and questions, making it an excellent book club selection It prompts readers to ask themselves how they define crazy and not settle for an easy answer. Consider Desirée Bindel, a woman so moral she will risk immorality in her search for moral clarity. Her journey challenges her boyfriend and the reader to ponder the essence of companionship and self-sacrifice, as well as the meaning of integrity and how to live by it. Part mystery, part treasure hunt, Eavesdropping takes place close to home. People, words, the streets where you live–the novel invites you to see them through Dezzy’s eyes--and Harry’s. Answers depend in part upon conversation, but Dezzy isn't talking, and Harry wonders if one of them is crazy. Mum is definitely not the word.

DAY ONE: THE NAME OF THE WIND
 
My name is Kvothe.
 
I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.
 
You may have heard of me.
 
So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature—the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man’s search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.
