Fans of the Divergent series by number-one New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth will be thrilled by Four: A Divergent Collection, a companion volume that includes four pre-Divergent stories told from Tobias Eaton´s point of view. Divergent - a major motion picture in 2014. Listeners first encountered Tobias Eaton as ´´Four´´ in Divergent. His voice is an integral part of Allegiant. Listeners will find more of this charismatic character´s backstory told from his own perspective in Four: A Divergent Collection. When heard together, these long narrative pieces illuminate the defining moments in Tobias Eaton´s life. The first three pieces in this volume - ´´The Transfer´´, ´´The Initiate´´, and ´´The Son´´ - follow Tobias´ transfer from Abnegation to Dauntless, his Dauntless initiation, and the first clues that a foul plan is brewing in the leadership of two factions. The fourth story, ´´The Traitor´´, runs parallel with the events of Divergent, giving listeners a glimpse into the decisions of loyalty - and love - that Tobias makes in the weeks after he meets Tris Prior.

The story of a young mother who discovers old buried secrets as she goes through her mother´s things, all whilst staying in a cottage that centuries before was a silk factory. A beautiful, eerie story of love and memory. If you try to pick up the pieces, sometimes that´s when they fall into place. When young mother Rosie gets the news that her mother has died she decides to leave London and head back to her home village. Carefully picking through her mother´s things, she tries not to frighten the children with her tears. Then one piece of paper stops her in her tracks, setting in motion a reawakening of memories long forgotten. But when Rosie starts to see things, strange things, she believes the stress must be getting to her at last. In the same village two centuries earlier, Effie, Beulah, and Tobias struggle to survive. As Beulah and Tobias´s wages from the silk factory are docked again, Effie wonders how she will keep them out of the workhouse. Just as Beulah starts getting under the skin of the cruel factory master, Effie´s heart is captured by young a soldier in a fine red coat. And when he swears to dress her in the very silk her brother and sister make, she hopes the promise might change their lives forever. The thread that weaves these two stories together is as strong as the foundation of the cottage that has seen these very lives pass through it. The Silk Factory is a story of love, loss, and how the memories that haunt us can also bind us together. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Antonia Beamish.
