    Charles Alexander Eastman (1858-1939), an educated and well-known Sioux, saw both sides of the great divide between Indians and whites, and he wrote 11 books attempting to reconcile the two cultures. This book is his illumination of Indian spiritual beliefs and practices. A convert to Christianity, Eastman never lost his sense of the wholeness and beauty of the Indian's relation to his existence and to the natural world.

    Nefertiti and her younger sister, Mutnodjmet, have been raised in a powerful family that has provided wives to the rulers of Egypt for centuries. Ambitious, charismatic, and beautiful, Nefertiti is destined to marry Amunhotep, an unstable young pharaoh. It is hoped by all that her strong personality will temper the young Amunhotep's heretical desires.

    "Sisters "
    Overall

    Sisters, can't live with them, can't live without them
    The story of Nefertiti by Michelle Morgan, is told through via her sister, Mutnodjmet. It is the younger sister who accompanied her parents to the funeral of future pharaoh and reports the proceedings to Nefertiti. It is Nefertiti who marries the new future pharaoh, Amunhotep. The marriage was arranged in the hope Nefertiti with her strong personality (and father's guidence) will temper her pharaoh husband's heretical desires.
    Mutnodjmet continues to serve her sister in many capacities. The bond between them is strong and complex and as interesting to follow as is the action around them. Like the court of Henry VIII, there is love, betrayal, political unrest and religious conflict with a nasty plague throw in for good measure.
    As with Cleopatra's Daughter, this story is very engrossing and hard to put down!
    Cassandra Campbell's narration is good for the story.
    For me, Nefertiti by Michelle Moran, deserves a five out of five rating. But maybe you should read it for yourself to find out if I am correct n my judgement.

    Deciding that true romantic heroes are a thing of the past, Eloise Kelly, an intelligent American who always manages to wear her Jimmy Choo suede boots on the day it rains, leaves Harvard's Widener Library bound for England to finish her dissertation on the dashing pair of spies the Scarlet Pimpernel and the Purple Gentian. What she discovers is something the finest historians have missed: a secret history that begins with a letter dated 1803.

    Jeny says: "Thoroughly entertaining"

    Overall

    This was an Audible.com selection, The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willing.
    If you are a fan of old movies, I am sure you will remember Travor Howard as the Scarlet Pimpernel. You may also have heard of another English fellow, the Purple Gentian. But, have you heard of the Pink Carnation? Me either before this listen; thanks to our heroine, Eloise Kelly! In Eloise's search she comes across letters that tell us "the secret".
    The dialog as quick witted as the pace is fast and salted with humor.
    Give yourself a giggle and check this one out.

    A body has been found on the overlook near Mulholland Drive. The victim, identified as Dr. Stanley Kent, has two bullet holes in the back of his head, from what looks like an execution-style shooting. LAPD detective Harry Bosch is called out to investigate. As soon as Bosch begins retracing Dr. Kent's steps, contradictions emerge. While Kent doesn't seem to have had ties to organized crime, he did have access to dangerous radioactive substances from just about every hospital in Los Angeles County.

    JoAnn Marcon says: "Good thriller"
    "this is a winner"

    it is a good mystery with a good reader (& a bit of sax thrown in. combo is delightful.

    Some people have dreams that are so magnificent that if they were to achieve them, their place in history would be guaranteed. People like Christopher Columbus, Isaac Newton, Florence Nightingale, Thomas Edison, Nancy Astor, Charles Lindbergh, Amy Johnson, Edmund Hilary and Neil Armstrong - their unparalleled success has made their stories into legend.But what if one man had such a dream, and once he'd achieved it, there was no proof that he had fulfilled his ambition?

  • An Excerpt from I Am America (And So Can You!) (Unabridged Selections)

    What The Daily Show is to evening news, The Colbert Report is to personality-driven pundit shows. Colbert brings his sarcastic charm to a half-hour report, tackling the important issues of the day and telling his guests why their opinions are just plain wrong. Stephen stands for "truthiness" and his American right to copyright that word and claim ownership of it. The author describes this as a simple audiobook from a simple mind: Stephen Colbert's.

    Leon says: "4 stars for Book (1 star other review)"
    "too much"
    Overall

    there were too many explatives for me to get very far...just not worth my time and did not seem funny or to add to the humor.

    Sixteen-year-old Leinad thought he was a common farmer's son, nothing more. He wondered why his father had trained him for years to master the sword, not exactly a tool of the trade for farmers. But one tragic event initiates a world of revelation. Only then does he begin to understand his calling, a calling no other man in the entire kingdom of Arrethtrae can fulfill - a calling given him by the King himself.

    Ellen says: "Great story, lousy production"
