A storm struck on the night Laura Shane was born, and there was a strangeness about the weather that people would remember for years. But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere - the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery. Years later - after another bolt of lightning - the stranger returned.

Each of the 30 stories challenges listeners to reconsider their conception of angels - from the story of a former Air Force colonel whose golden retrievers served as his heavenly helpers in the Colorado wilderness to the account of St. John Bosco, who, for more than 30 years, was protected by an angelic dog as he walked the dangerous city streets. In the end, for all who see through the eyes of faith, this audiobook is evidence that God can use even muddy paws and cold noses to fulfill his purpose in our world. For dog lovers and anyone who believes in the presence of angels, Angelic Tails will uplift and inspire

Sous chef Aimee Tierney has the perfect recipe for the perfect life: marry her childhood sweetheart, raise a family, and buy out her parents' restaurant. But when her fiancé, James Donato, vanishes in a boating accident, her well-baked future is swept out to sea. Instead of walking down the aisle on their wedding day, Aimee is at James's funeral - a funeral that leaves her more unsettled than at peace.

all of it except for book 2 3 & 4 of The Jungle Book exceptional. I didn't care for the writing style of the Jungle Book, guess I was spoiled by the movie. Treasure Island was awesome impeccable English accent nailed it. Robin Hood was a great story. Not the same that is reproduced or depicted in any of the movies however, it was a solid story. the narrator did an excellent job. if I did read this again I would probably stop after Treasure Island.

Benjamin Button was literally born an old man. He lived a backwards life, for his body grew younger as the years passed him by. Come and listen to the original, unabridged story by F. Scott Fitzgerald which inspired the movie.
