    Nefertari catches the eye of the Crown Prince, and despite her family's history, they fall in love and wish to marry. Yet all of Egypt opposes this union between the rising star of a new dynasty and the fading star of an old, heretical one.

    While political adversity sets the country on edge, Nefertari becomes the wife of Ramesses the Great. Destined to be the most powerful Pharaoh in Egypt, he is also the man who must confront the most famous exodus in history.

    Yes it was the triumph of the virtuous Princess, and a cute fiction story taking in some actual events of history. But I love those kinds of stories plain & simple.

  • Cat Daddy: What the World's Most Incorrigible Cat Taught Me About Life, Love, and Coming Clean

    In this book, Galaxy tells the poignant story of his 13-year relationship with a petite gray-and-white short-haired cat named Benny, and gives singular advice for living with, caring for, and loving the feline in your home. When Benny arrived in his life, Galaxy was a down-and-out rock musician with not too much more going on than a part-time job at an animal shelter and a drug problem. Benny's previous owner brought the cat to the shelter in a cardboard box to give him up.

    Story

    I recently bought the Tao of Pooh, and while I have not read it yet, as I sit here at home with a home full of Rescue cats from all over, I am wrapped in love and feel as if this could be a road to enlightenment. We watch Jackson Galaxy's show, and really knew very little about his personal life or his addictions, so when I saw this book I was not as prepared for that part of the story even though it talked about it in the title. Oh my what a path that he has gone through and survived and become a better man, and cat advocate. I have watched the show and him work with cats and come up with ideas to help to integrate that cat and its family and other animals is so great. I have always been awed by his work. And while someone just saying "do not worry about not having letters after your name" to you that does not make it any easier to reconcile if you feel that is an important thing. For me he needs no letters, his love of cats is heart warming to other lovers of cats.

    Now this does not mean that you have to love cats to read this book, this man leads a difficult life, does not come through unscathed but comes through, a better man. I do not know of anyone who would not appreciate this story, even without the cats. I hope you all will give it a try and don't forget to spay and neuter you companion animals.

    It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow.

    Story

    Well of course it was too short, but I loved it and am glad about the next one coming out. I have enjoyed the Silly banter and camaraderie of the characters and even thought I had not read the other books just the other day it was easy to pick back up. I am also glad to get to see the story from Gi Gi's point of view, and this story leaves the trail of crumbs of some future books featuring Gi Gi again. Amanda Ronconi as always a stellar performance, her ability to bring to life each character Molly Harper writes is just amazing. I sometimes find myself comparing her to others and many times they do not stack up as well as Amanda Ronconi does. So great short story, I recommend it and would also like to say Thank you to Audible for making it a free bee.

    Story

    Do you know of personalized story books that you can get for children? You give names of friends and pets and such and a story book is printed making all these names the stars? That is what this book was like to me, just new names inserted into a story and it follows along the lines just like many thousands of others. Do not bother wasting a credit on this book it is not even good background chatter. The reader has a pleasant voice and does the different characters well, but she cannot make a bad story good.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    The above is all I can say about this book. Every night when my husband came home I mentioned to him I was listening to this story and how much I enjoyed what I had heard that day. This is my first Stephen King book, and I must say it was the time travel in the synopsis that attracted me to purchase this book. I would certainly recommend it.

    Story

    While this is not the longest book I have listened too, it is certainly the longest I have listened to without ever reading the book. I did find I had to go back a few times because with all the names and aliases, and unusual people popping up that you were not sure where they fit in the story. In fact I even asked my husband if he read the book and if he had to give me a quick synopsis. His was the same as mine before I purchased the audible book. So after I stopped thinking I had purchased the wrong book and just went back to re-listen a couple of times, and then when it still did not fit in I just had faith and plunged forward. It really does all come together. But what a story and so much detail & planning. So I would certainly recommend this audio book, but do not be to distracted while listening to it so you do not have to go back.

    Story

    I first stumbled upon this book at a yard sale 6 years ago. Books for a quarter and I had a long trip coming up so I picked up a whole bag ful so I would have plenty to read. Little did I know this story would become one of my favorite. I have read it once a year, oddly around spring, but this time I had the audio version and I must say that adding the suspense of the performance was a big plus to the experience.

    >When South African conservationist Lawrence Anthony was asked to accept a herd of "rogue" wild elephants on his Thula Thula game reserve in Zululand, his common sense told him to refuse. But he was the herd's last chance of survival: they would be killed if he wouldn't take them. In order to save their lives, Anthony took them in. In the years that followed he became a part of their family. And as he battled to create a bond with the elephants, he came to realize that they had a great deal to teach him about life, loyalty, and freedom.

    Story

    Now I have loved Elephants since I was a wee lassie, so with a title like this one I would certainly gravitate toward it. There were so many things that went on in the years that this book covers you never knew what the next curve of the ride was going to be.
    It did not pull any punches there were sad things and wonderful things and some things that you did not know what was going to happen for sure until the very end. But mostly I was entranced to hear this man's account of these wonderful creatures. Even with his attempt to keep them sort of wild, but the Matriarch trusting him, the sensitivity and intelligence of these giants was evident and what I would have guessed about them.
    Now I know that not everyone will rush to read this book, but speaking from my heart where the 5 year old still resides that wanted to keep a big elephant in the living room because it ws the biggest room in the house. Try it and see if you do not smile in your heart.
