    Winner of the African American Literary Award for Fiction, Essence® best-selling author Victoria Christopher Murray delivers a cautionary tale about debt and the dangers of an overly tempting offer. Married at 17, Adam and Evia Langston have worked their way up from rags to riches. But as they are enjoying all the trappings of their success, a financial downturn leaves them teetering on the brink of disaster. And that’s when Evia’s boss makes the Langstons a fivemillion dollar offer they can’t refuse.

    James A. Garfield may have been the most extraordinary man ever elected president. Born into abject poverty, he rose to become a wunderkind scholar, a Civil War hero, and a renowned and admired reformist congressman. Nominated for president against his will, he engaged in a fierce battle with the corrupt political establishment. But four months after his inauguration, a deranged office seeker tracked Garfield down and shot him in the back. But the shot didn’t kill Garfield. The drama of what hap­pened subsequently is a powerful story of a nation in tur­moil.

    Four days before Christmas in 1943, a badly damaged American bomber struggled to fly over wartime Germany. At its controls was a 21-year-old pilot. Half his crew lay wounded or dead. It was their first mission. Suddenly a sleek, dark shape pulled up on the bomber’s tail - a German Messerschmitt fighter. Worse, the German pilot was an ace, a man able to destroy the American bomber with the squeeze of a trigger.

Polk, Winfield Scott, Kit Carson, Nicholas Trist, and John Quincy Adams.

    Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does, even down to how he butters his toast. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning the mail arrives, and within the stack is a letter addressed to Harold from a woman he hasn't seen or heard from in 20 years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye. Harold pens a quick reply and, leaving Maureen to her chores, heads to the corner mailbox. But then Harold has a chance encounter, one that convinces him that he absolutely must deliver his message to Queenie in person.

    In the fall of 2009, Taliban insurgents ambushed a patrol of Afghan soldiers and Marine advisors in a mountain village called Ganjigal. Firing from entrenched positions, the enemy was positioned to wipe out 100 men who were pinned down and were repeatedly refused artillery support. Ordered to remain behind with the vehicles, 21 year-old Marine corporal Dakota Meyer disobeyed orders and attacked to rescue his comrades.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Into the Fire: A Firsthand Account of the Most Extraordinary Battle in the Afghan War to be better than the print version?

    Have not read the book, but audio is excellent


    What other book might you compare Into the Fire: A Firsthand Account of the Most Extraordinary Battle in the Afghan War to and why?

    Matterhorn, brave, brave young men at war. The joy, the loss, the waste


    What about Zach McLarty’s performance did you like?

    He was able to take me to the battelfield. Not as strong toward the end.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, when Dakota felt he had failed. I know an officer who sent men into battle and personal he took the losses. We are so blessed to have these men represent us

  • The Journey of Crazy Horse: A Lakota History

    Most of the world remembers Crazy Horse as a peerless warrior who brought the U.S. Army to its knees at the Battle of Little Bighorn. But to his fellow Lakota Indians, he was a dutiful son and humble fighting man who, with valor, spirit, respect, and unparalleled leadership, fought for his people's land, livelihood, and honor. In this fascinating biography, Joseph Marshall, himself a Lakota Indian, creates a vibrant portrait of the man, his times, and his legacy.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Journey of Crazy Horse the most enjoyable?

    It seems like a grandfather telling a story of his life and culture. The life of Crazy Horse is important, of course, but the story was much more. It was a story of who a Lakota is and why he is. I also could relate it to our current wars and how we are trying to change the cultures and lives of the Afgan people. We think for the best, but how we destroy so much in order to have the change\


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Mr. Marshall was just excellent. I had tears in my eyes as the death unfolded. I could feel the grief of the parents, tribe, friends.. The loss of a great leader and the loss of a great culture


    What does Joseph M. Marshall III bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I felt like I was sitting at the foot of a wise grandfather who was telling me how to be a better man by telling me a story of a great warrior and why he was a better man
