The Big House by J. Keck

Posted by Erik Nilsson, May 2017

Author: J. Keck   Narrator: Carrie Barton   Language: English    Category: Fiction


In 1928, Minnie’s mother, Nora, arrives at her nursing college after abandoning her a few years ago as a child. What does Nora want?
An unexpected visit to Grandpa and Marie at the Big House offers Minnie shelter and refuge, but no longer the carefree days of her youthful experiences there. She discovers secrets. Shrewd and hidden manipulations of power ensure the survival of the Big House in this small Southern town, where a smile can mask suppressed rage and hostility.
A power struggle ensues between Minnie and Nora, when honor, wealth and influence are risked by young love. Both women will have their say, but only one will prevail.
Guns and violence become the signs of a new era. The 1929 Great Depression explodes, engulfing everyone. Minnie and the family must confront the Depression, as well as threats to the land from those who would rob them.
Driven by her own convictions and courage, Minnie refuses to give in to chaos and fear. While poverty and cruelty surround her, Minnie’s spirit, character and hard-won life experience prepare her to survive and keep her values. Will the past and present circumstances overwhelm Minnie, or will she embrace the future and triumph?

“One of my favorite apps. I drive alot and Audible lets me get through a ton of books. They are great about returning books I don’t like. I also love that I can put it on any device and pick up right where I left off.”

“Just wonderful, I never had time to read except in the 10 minutes before bed, by then I’m already falling asleep and have to re-read the next night as it didn’t retain. Now I can listen to books while travelling, doing the housework, getting ready for work each morning. I’m getting through all the books I’ve been meaning to read for years in just a couple of months.”
