Alabama, AL (PressExposure) May 18, 2009 -- Canadian author, Barbara Murray, launches new audio book for the Young Adult reader.
The Bea and Mildred Mystery Series broke onto the mystery reader's scene in 2007 with the publication of Gifts and Bones (Soames Point Press, Toronto).
Based in stormy Newfoundland at the turn of the 20th century, Gifts and Bones tells the story of young Brian Stevens and his obsession with a murder somehow connected to the laying of the transatlantic cable in the previous century. A work of well-researched historical fiction, Ms. Murrayâs first novel in the Bea and Mildred Mystery Series is now available for audio download at http://beaandmildred.com for $18 CAD. In her audio narration, Canadian storyteller, Allice Bernards (http://www.storysalt.com) brings life to the remarkable cast of Gifts and Bones characters -- from the nefarious and belligerant old mariner Cyrus Newton Norton to the brilliant and introverted protagonist, 18-year-old Bea MacDonald.
The voice of Allice Bernards and the writing of Barbara Murray are the perfect complement for the Young Adult reader with a strong appetite for great mysteries.
Gifts and Bones audio is available in download format ($18 CAD) from the website http://www.beaandmildred.com, or as a 10 CD set ($42 CAD) through the website or Soames Point Press. The novel itself is in paperback format (292 pp., 6â by 9â) and is available through through either of the above sources, Chapters-Indigo or a selection of small independent bookstores. Soames Point Press is a Toronto-based publishing house. Gifts and Bones is its first publication. ISBN 978-1-4303-0117-2 (novel) ISBN: 978-0-9783373-1-5 (audio)
