A young woman moves from Stockholm to a small community on the edge of the Arctic Circle, to her boyfriend's home town. But when their relationship ends, she decides not to return to the city. It's a brilliantly wrought piece of fiction, of the struggles to adjust to small-town life and alternating endless summer sunlight and winter darkness. Adapted to a feature-length fiction film, Jon Blåhed’s intriguing debut world-premiered in the Nordic Lights section of the 2020 Göteborg Film Festival.
Outside the barbed-wire-crowned metal fence, at the worst of the Japanese internment camps in California, a curious ten-year-old American boy one day cautiously approached on his bike to say a nervous hello to the girl who so intrigued him from a distance. This visit started four years of meetings between the two. Then one day the internees were released and loaded onto buses, to be transported out of the Tule Lake Internment Camp. Would Jin and Luke ever see each other again?

The full story of why and how he murdered the Hoyts has never been told.

Bringing midwestern literature and authors to audio is the ongoing goal of Great Plains Audiobooks. With more than a decade of experience in the audiobook industry,
Ann Richardson has made it her mission to not only narrate, but educate and advocate with and for industry partners. Since 2008, she has volunteered for Learning Ally, and worked with most of the biggest publishers in the industry, as well as independently publishing authors, relishing each equally. She spent much of her free time prospecting for good books that hadn't yet been made into audiobooks, and producing them through others' existing publishing platforms. Then in the weirdness of 2020, Ann decided to start her own audiobook publishing company, and Great Plains Audiobooks was born...
The rural Midwest is a unique place to grow up; stories of cowboys and horses are as close as your backyard. Ann grew up on horseback, riding around the countryside visiting friends' farms, participating in 4-H, and reveling in the endless adventures found in cornfields, sunsets, riverbanks...and reading.
In the oppressive heat of summer and the freezing cold of winter, Ann escaped into books; usually animal books by Marguerite Henry, or pioneer stories by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
Studying broadcast journalism at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, Ann was introduced to the works of Willa Cather, Mari Sandoz, and Louise Pound. A passion for Nebraska literature was sparked, and despite moving to Northern California in 1988, the landscape and history of the Midwest remained entrenched in her heart and mind. Because of this, the mission of Great Plains Audiobooks is to bring works about the midlands and by midlands authors, to audio. But that does not exclude works from around the world, as well! From detective stories, romance and young adult to non-fiction historical works in the public domain, the road is wide open...
