lovely warA brand new audio production is out - it's title is "Lovely War". It's a new book written by best-selling author Julie Berry and published by Penguin Random House Audio Publishing.

Lovely War is a beautiful historical fiction story.


The lush story begins during World War II when Greek goddess Aphrodite is put on trial by her husband Hephaestus. With the help of a few other Greek gods (Apollo, Hades, and Ares), she shares her two favorite love stories that she was a part of during World War I: that of Hazel and James and another between Colette and Aubrey.

This is what Nat says about his part “I read the part of Ares—always fun to play a God! I was genuinely surprised at the subtlety and strength of the writing. The truth of war is rarely approached with such honesty, which means it’s gruesomeness was refreshing. That’s quite a talent and a gift from the author to us. Not hearing the other readers is often a bit unnerving because you don’t know how you fit in, but you just trust the director and get on with it. Exciting.” There's also a sample of Nat's reading to listen to via this link.
