Unafraid by Jeff Golden (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
What an exciting, clever, imaginative book! And more, what an insightful, important one. This is the Great Read you’ve been looking for. (Neale Donald Walsch, author of the bestselling Conversations with God series)
Two dates burn fiercely in the memory of millions of Americans: November 22, 1963, and September 11, 2001. These two tragedies bracket Unafraid, a story grounded in a simple question: What if the fatal bullet fired on that sunny Dallas afternoon had veered three inches off target?
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s celebrated narrator, Malcolm Hillgartner. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
"Unafraid is a different kind of novel. While its story captivated me, its exploration of the possible was lifting my hopes for America and the world. This is a fine and important book." (Mark Gerzon, author of Leading through Conflict)

RATING: Suitable for adults interested in alternative history and JFK.
Based on the premise of Kennedy surviving his assassination, Unafraid lays out a compelling alternate American history, rich with the public adventures and private dramas of twentieth-century icons such as J. Edgar Hoover, Martin Luther King, Jr., Fidel Castro, Golda Meir, and the Beatles. At the center of this transformed world stage is a leader who blows the sides out of conventional politics with the simple belief that the primary reason idealistic goals have been “impossible” to achieve is that we have needlessly decided that they are.
