Above the Line by Shirley Maclaine
Her agent told her not to get on the plane. True, Jessica Lange and Demi Moore had signed on, but the male leads weren't even cast. The financing was shaky at best, more likely non-existent. The script had been re-written so many times she wasn't sure which version they were filming. And yet there was something about the film 'Wild Oats' that made Shirley MacLaine commit to the project and fly to the location shoot in the far-off Canary Islands. Against all odds, what followed was one of the most extraordinary, thrilling and paradigm-shifting adventures of the beloved actress's life.
All the Single Ladies by Rebecca Traister
In 2009, the award-winning journalist Rebecca Traister started this, a book she thought would be a work of contemporary journalism, about the twenty-first century phenomenon of the American single woman. It was the year the proportion of American women who were married dropped below fifty percent; and the median age of first marriages, which had remained between twenty and twenty-two years old for nearly a century (1890-1980), had risen dramatically to twenty-seven. But over the course of her vast research and more than a hundred interviews with academics and social scientists and prominent single women, Traister discovered a startling truth: the phenomenon of the single woman in America is not a new one. And historically, when women were given options beyond early heterosexual marriage, the results were massive social change, temperance, abolition, secondary education, and more.
The Gangster by Clive Cussler
New York City, it is 1906, and the Italian crime group known as the Black Hand is on a big spree: kidnapping, extortion, and arson. Detective Isaac Bell of the Van Dorn Agency is hired to form the 'Black Hand Squad,' but the gangsters appear to be everywhere; so much so that Bell begins to wonder if criminals are using the name for the terror effect. And then the murders begin, each one of a man more powerful than the last, and to Bell's dismay, the ultimate target may be the most powerful man of all.
Gone Again by James Grippando
Sashi Burgette vanished three years ago on her way to school. The night after the teenager's disappearance, ex-con Dylan Kyle was stopped for drunk driving. An article of Sashi's clothing was found in his truck, and a police videotape of his drunken explanation under interrogation sealed his fate at trial. Now, just days from Kyle's execution, Sashi's mother visits Jack Swyteck, doing pro bono work at the Freedom Institute, and delivers shocking news: 'Sashi called me'. The police dismiss the call as a cruel hoax. The State Attorney refuses to consider the new evidence, insisting the case is closed. The governor has already signed the death warrant. An innocent man may be executed and time is running out, unless his lawyers can locate Sashi.
Overload by Joyce Meyer
Joyce Meyer shows listeners how to become free from the burden of stress so that they can achieve God's best for their lives.
The Passenger by Lisa Lutz
Forty-eight hours after leaving her husband's body at the base of the stairs, Tanya Dubois cashes in her credit cards, dyes her hair brown, demands a new name from a shadowy voice over the phone, and flees town. It's not the first time. She meets Blue, a female bartender who recognizes the hunted look in a fugitive's eyes and offers her a place to stay. With dwindling choices, Tanya-now-Amelia accepts. An uneasy and dangerous alliance is born. It's almost impossible to live off the grid today, but Amelia-now-Debra and Blue have the courage, the ingenuity, and the desperation, to try. Hop scotching from city to city, Debra especially is chased by a very dark secret; can she outrun her past?
Prodigy's Cousin by Joanne Ruthsatz
We all know the autistic genius stereotypes. The absentminded professor with untied shoelaces. The geeky Silicon Valley programmer who writes bullet­proof code but can’t get a date. But there is another set of (tiny) geniuses whom you would never add to those ranks—child prodigies. We mostly know them as the chatty and charming tykes who liven up day­time TV with violin solos and engaging banter. These kids aren’t autistic, and there has never been any kind of scientific connection between autism and prodigy. Until Now.
