Family Sagas on Audio

Family Sagas on Audio

The popularity of Downton Abbey has shown that the sweeping story of a family's loves, losses, scandals, and triumphs can draw an audience. If you like getting to know characters in depth and enjoy the intricacies of family interaction, then family sagas may be an audiobook genre for you to explore. Family sagas can revolve around a current generation or can chronicle a family over several generations. The story may be told through the perspective of various family members. Another appeal of family sagas is that often they are set in historical time periods, allowing the reader to learn more about different eras or cultures. Romance may be an element in the story as well.

Dive into these family sagas in the library's audiobook collection.
