This is a terrific listen!
I may have finished it but will certainly listen again. Lots of well researched detail and the application of logic and deduction make this a great book!
Fascinating for history buffs too.
Highly recommend.

By Winston Churchill's own admission, victory in the Second World War would have been "impossible without her". Until now, however, the only existing biography of Churchill's wife, Clementine, was written by her daughter. Sonia Purnell finally gives Clementine her due with a deeply researched account that tells her life story, revealing how she was instrumental in softening FDR's initial dislike of her husband and paving the way for Britain's close relationship with America.

This book is a wonderful historical biography of someone little known. Mrs Churchill was clearly a remarkable women from a background that she rose above. She is portrayed with both strengths and weaknesses which adds to the richness of her story.
Narrated very well, this book is a great listen.

In these five new essays, Krauthammer offers a critique of the Obama administration: its failed and ambivalent foreign policy, the lawlessness of its rule by executive order, and an air of detachment that has turned this into "an observer presidency".

Mr Krauthammer once again demonstrates his exceptional insight into the utter failure of leadership, integrity, and aptitude of the Obama presidency.
His accuracy of assessment and delivery of facts continues to sets him far above the whining rhetoric and double talk of the media pundits and socialist left.
Excellent!!

  • The God-Shaped Heart

The key to spiritual and emotional health is to grasp the truth of God's transforming love for us and then let that reality influence our own hearts and relationships. It seems simple, but we are experts at complicating simple things. Instead of living lives characterized by love we find ourselves trapped in cycles of shame, violence, and addiction that steal our joy and keep us from loving others - so much so that, by all indications, Christians are living no differently than anyone else when it comes to abuse rates, use of pornography, alcohol and drug addiction, and more.
