Keys to the Past

Audiobooks for your listening pleasure.

 Juliet Juliet


Written by Anne Fortier; narrated by Cassandra Campbell.


When Julie’s beloved aunt dies, the only thing she receives is a key—one carried by her mother on the day she herself died—to a safety-deposit box in Siena, Italy. This key sends Julie on a journey that will change her life forever—a journey into the troubled past of her ancestor Guiletta Tolomei. In 1340 Guiletta was smuggled into Siena, where she met a young man named Romeo. But six centuries have a way of catching up to the present and Julie begins to discover that here, in this ancient city, the past and present are hard to tell apart. The deeper she delves into the history of Romeo and Giulietta, and the closer she gets to the treasure they allegedly left behind, the greater the danger surrounding her.


From Anne Fortier comes a sweeping, beautifully written novel of intrigue and identity, of love and legacy, as a young woman discovers that her own fate is irrevocably tied—for better or worse—to literature’s greatest star-crossed lovers.

 Physick Book of Deliverance Dane Physick Book of Deliverance Dane


Written by Katherine Howe; narrated by Katherine Kellgren.


Harvard graduate student Connie Goodwin needs to spend her summer doing research for her doctoral dissertation. But when her mother asks her to handle the sale of Connie’s grandmother’s abandoned home near Salem, she can’t refuse. Connie discovers an ancient key with a seventeenth-century Bible. The key contains a yellowing fragment of parchment with a name written on it: Deliverance Dane.


This discovery launches Connie on a quest—to find out who this woman was and to unearth a rare artifact of singular power: a physic book, its page a secret repository for lost knowledge. Written with astonishing conviction and grace, the Physick Book of Deliverance Dane travels seamlessly between the witch trials of the 1690s and a modern woman’s story of mystery, intrigue, and revelation.

 Sarah's Key

Sarah's Key


Written by Tatiana de Rosnay; narrated by Polly Stone.


Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten-year-old girl, is taken with her parents by the French police as they go door-to-door arresting Jewish families in the middle of the night. Desperate to protect her younger brother, Sarah locks him in a bedroom cupboard—their secret hiding place—and promises to come back for him as soon as they are released.


Sixty years later: Sarah’s story intervenes with that of Julia Jarmond, an American journalist investigating the roundup. In her research, Julia stumbles onto a trail of secrets that link her to Sarah, and to questions about her own romantic future. Pivotal to this novel is the key in ten-year-old Sarah's pocket. It opens the cupboard in which she has hidden her younger brother from the French police. In Sarah’s Key, Tatiana de Rosnay offers up a mesmerizing story in which a tragic past unfolds, the present is torn apart, and the future is irrevocably altered.
