    On November 10, 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander was driven into coma by a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. Seven days later, he awakened with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm that were more real than this earthly one - memories that included meeting a deceased birth sister he had never known existed. Dr. Alexander deployed all his knowledge as a scientist to find out whether his mind could have played a trick on him. In its shutdown state, there was no way it could have.

    Story
    Where does Proof of Heaven rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I listen usually to fiction; this is non-fiction. It is an incredible and spiritual experience, just to listen to it. I have a daughter and son-in-law who are neurologists, MDs who are specially trained in the brain, like Dr. Alexander except their specialty is the chemistry, not the surgery, so I am keenly aware of the training they all had. His training makes his insights on this all the more credible. And it makes it all more amazing. I would recommend it to anyone, of any background, and intend to share it with many members of my family.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Proof of Heaven?

    Probably his analysis in the Appendix of the things that his experience cannot be because of the non-functioning of his neo cortex during the time of his illness.


    Which character – as performed by Eben Alexander – was your favorite?

    Himself.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Same as the title.


    Any additional comments?

    I would be interested to know how the books does; it was just released two months ago.

    When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows.

    Marie Bostwick weaves the unforgettable story of four very different women whose paths cross, changing their lives forever. It’s a long way from Fort Worth, Texas, to New Bern, Connecticut, yet it only takes a day in the charming Yankee town to make Evelyn Dixon realize she’s found her new home. The abrupt end of her marriage was Evelyn’s wake-up call to get busy chasing her dream of opening a quilt shop. Finding a storefront is easy enough; starting a new life isn’t....

    Hoping to bring some Tinseltown money to the Valley, the mayor lures a movie studio to town to shoot their next production, a big-budget Western in the classic tradition. The star is none other than ruggedly handsome—and notoriously badly behaved—Thad Perry. When the mayor decides that someone needs to keep an eye on Thad so that he doesn’t get into too much trouble, Bernie and Chet are handpicked for the job. The money is good but something smells fishy....

    Leon Uris retums to the land of his acclaimed best-seller Exodus for an epic story of hate and love, vengeance and forgiveness. The Middle East is the powerful setting for this sweeping tale of a land where revenge is sacred and hatred noble. Where an Arab ruler tries to save his people from destruction but cannot save them from themselves. When violence spreads like a plague across the lands of Palestine - this is the time of The Haj.

    Jean says: "Oversimplification of Middle East problems"
    "Extraordinary history of Palestine"

    Story

    Leon Uris is a Jew and yet if even half of his observations on the history and situation within Arab culture is correct we are wasting our time in the west even trying to give refugee relief, let alone trying to broker peace. In a framework of a novel he does an extraordinary job of telling 1200 years of Islamic history. A lengthy trip a year ago to the region and the observations of both Islamic and Jewish residents further underscores the truths of this book. It is a must read for any educated westerner.

    At the age of 22, Jennifer Worth left her comfortable home to move into a convent and become a midwife in postwar London’s East End slums. The colorful characters she met while delivering babies all over London - from the plucky, warm-hearted nuns with whom she lived to the woman with 24 children who couldn't speak English to the prostitutes and dockers of the city’s seedier side - illuminate a fascinating time in history.

    In 1919, Delano, Georgia, appoints its first chief of police. Honest and hardworking, the new chief is puzzled when young men start to disappear. But his investigation is ended by the fatal blast from a shotgun. Delano's second chief-of-police is no hero, yet he is also disturbed by what he sees in the missing-persons bulletins. In 1969, when Delano's third chief takes over, the unsolved disappearances still haunt the police files.

    In a wicked conspiracy reaching across the Mexican border, Tularosa pits a jaded ex-cop against tight-lipped Army personnel, hired thugs, and smooth-talking outlaws. Forced into retirement by a crippling gunshot wound, Santa Fe policeman Kevin Kerney seeks solitude on a small New Mexico ranch far from the nearest neighbor. But when his godson disappears without a trace into the harsh, high-security desert of the White Sands Missile Range, Kerney emerges to search for the young soldier.

    I heard the two prequels to this first hard country and backlands, then discovered the series set in the contemporary southwest. McGarrigle writes and plots beautifully and obviously knows his history, his subject and his country! I high recommend these.

    Michael McGarrity returns with the second installment of his sweeping, richly authentic New York Times best-selling American West trilogy set in the raw, untrammeled New Mexico backlands during the Roaring '20s, the Great Depression, and World War II. Hard Country, the first novel in the Kerney family trilogy and the debut prequel to his national best-selling Kevin Kerney crime novels, was critically acclaimed for its authentic, gritty realism; its sprawling, engrossing story; and its compelling, engaging characters.
