Lorain has been a prisoner of her secrets for almost her entire life. At the age of 13 she managed to keep her pregnancy a secret, discarding the infant and leaving it for dead. Years later, Lorain´s mother finally met the love of her life, and Lorain couldn´t find the courage to tell her mother that her new beau was the man who had molested Lorain and impregnated her. To complicate matters even more, Lorain discovered that the baby she´d abandoned all those years ago survived, and God has now placed Lorain in her adult child´s life. It seems like the legacy of secrets has been passed on, too, as Lorain helps her daughter conceal the true details behind one of her own pregnancies. Lorain has managed to maneuver the secrets and lies like pieces in a strategic game of chess, and is now living the lavish, fairy-tale life of a doctor´s wife. But even that is a lie. With the rug about to be pulled out from underneath Lorain by the woman who raised her abandoned child, all Lorain prays for is that everything ends well. In this cycle of lies, secrets, shame, and guilt, will Lorain get what she prays for? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sharell Palmer Schwarzer.

For a vast majority of girls in this country, there comes an age at which self-esteem, self-assurance, equilibrium, and confidence fly out the window. Maybe it´s hormones, maybe it´s culture, or maybe it´s just called growing up. Whatever the cause, it´s real. Some girls turn, in their own fashion, to the same addictive solutions as their elders: compulsive behavior - either in the form of alcohol, drugs, food, or something equally destructive. Casey, a veteran of the ´´first great revival´´ of the recovery movement, brings the art of living one day at a time to young girls in Be Who You Want to Be. ´´My intention in this book is similar to the intent in my other titles: I want to foster hope and willingness in young girls to believe they can make the changes needed so they feel like they belong and have purpose.´´ From the book´s opening note to parents (and other adults who care about young girls) through to the final word, the spirit of taking steps for themselves, no matter who they are or where they are in life, comes through in an accessible tone, providing girls the toolkits they need for handling life´s ups and downs. 1.

When Sarah Palmer finds herself back in her little hometown of Loraine, Nebraska, with the young son who had been part of the town´s biggest scandal in its 125-year history, and a basement full of sculptures she couldn´t sell in Chicago, her only thought is how she can get out again fast. That is, until a certain dark-haired, equine veterinarian sweeps her off her feet. Marty Scott can´t keep his mind off the short little spit-fire with the tough exterior and a heart as soft as a kitten. Once he figures out the way past her defenses, he thinks it´s just a hop and a skip to the altar. That is, until a new scandal is born out of tragedy. Sarah is a runner who tends to run from her problems. Marty is problem solver, who prides himself in his solutions, but sometimes the problem is so big, even the best problem solver gets stymied. Sometimes the answer needs to come from a higher power. Author´s Note: Clean romance, but adult themes. Not recommended for under 16. Very minimal use of language that some might find offensive. There is no use of the f-word. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jodi Bowersox. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/022679/bk_acx0_022679_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
