More than 50 years after its first publication, Doubleday's definitive edition of Anne Frank's famous diary generated an extraordinary amount of excitement when it was published in early 1995. Enthusiastically received by critics and readers alike, it reigned for nine weeks on The New York Times best seller list and will remain for all time the version that millions of readers will cherish.

If you want to know the thoughts of your teenage girl, Anne does an amazing job of laying it all out their. The war is not the focus of this book but a heavy element and much can be learned about the war. There are many life lessons and topics addressed by Anne. This book would make for a great conversation starter with a teen girl.

Throughout the Bible, followers of Jesus are commanded to submit to Him as their King. They are told to obey and follow, faithfully and without hesitation. Every time Christians utter the word Lord, they make a subtle yet profound declaration - that God is their Master and that they belong to Him. In fact, the Bible describes believers as His slaves. They have been bought with a price and now live for Christ as a people for His own possession. But go into most churches today, even flip through most Bible translations, and you won’t see or hear the word slave anywhere.

In the first of three essays included in this audiobook, Bill Bryson decides to move his wife and kids back to his homeland, the United States, after nearly two decades in Britain. But not before taking one last trip around Britain, a sort of valedictory tour of the green and kindly island that had so long been his home. The result is a hilarious social commentary.

I have really been enjoying listening to Bill Bryson's books. My only issue with this one is the sections of sexual talk and foul language. Not my cup of tea. Other than that the storyline is engaging and educating.
My next book will probably be another Bill Bryson book.

This books is packed with scripture to back up all the advice. If you are struggling as a wife this book will give you clear biblical direction and steps to take to solve your problem. I believe God is glorified through this book.
