Tallgrass by Sandra Dallas--Audiobook Excerpt

Listen to this audiobook excerpt from Sandra Dallas' novel Tallgrass. During Word War II, a family finds life turned upside down when the government opens a Japanese internment camp in their small Colorado town. After a young girl is murdered, all eyes (and suspicions) turn to the newcomers, the interlopers, the strangers. Part thriller, part historical novel, Tallgrass is a riveting exploration of the darkest---and best---parts of the human heart.
