Dolly Parton is instantly recognizable for her iconic style and persona, but how did she create her enduring image? Dolly crafted her exaggerated appearance and stage personality by combining two opposing stereotypes - the innocent mountain girl and the voluptuous sex symbol. By developing a multilayered image and persona, Dolly both critiques representations of femininity in country music and attracts a diverse fan base ranging from country and pop music fans to feminists and gay rights advocates.

Here is an interesting look at Dolly and how her embracement of her femininity and what she has always found to be beautiful impacted the country music industry. This is not a book about her life but a book about her gender and how the way she presented herself throughout the years has affected the country music industry as well as her life.

Katherine Goldman is a professional with world-class skills, but the expertise of the family firm doesn't lie within the scope of legitimate commerce. Goldman & Associates steals priceless treasures and delivers them to the highest bidder - and business is good. When Katherine lands in Scotland to boost some relics, nothing in the experience of this notorious thief prepared her for a collision with a dark, rakish man wearing plaid who happens to be trapped inside an ancient mirror.

This is a valuable book for anyone who wants to improve their life. The information in here is the best I've heard for self-improvement on any level. There is a ton of interesting information, but it is explained in a way most people can understand. I was quite impressed with how well rounded the information is and how it was explained in simple, straightforward terms. I will be listening to this again with a close friend who I feel could benefit from it as well. Great book with excellent narration. Highly recommended to everyone!!

Irrepressible Terrell Calder is a cigarette-smoking, school-skipping six-year-old boy growing up in a migrant work camp under growing rumors of World War II during the last days of the Great Depression. Son of the camp manager, Terry has no interest in school, and instead is drawn into an unlikely friendship with Mr. McCree, an eccentric old man living in the cracks of civilization. Together, they prowl the Everglades in search of rattlesnakes, epiphytes, and adventure until the law and society change their lives forever.

I enjoyed listening to Summer Lightning because it was a very good, entertaining story and the narration was fantastic. Set in a time when kids could be kids and you didn't fear for everything and everyone. Terrell ran around doing what he wanted to do rather than what he was supposed to be doing but he met some fascinating people and learned about life first hand. Mr. McCree was a wonderful man and a great person to get to know through this book. The ending of this story was perfect!

Carter, the mastermind behind her foray through time, reveals that she'll be remaining there for six years - assuming she survives the first winter. To complicate matters, Josie has an unexpected health condition, one that threatens her life more than the frigid cold, Viking raids, and wild animals.

I love this series and I have to tell you, each book in this series continues to get better. I wasn't expecting this to be as good as the pervious two books but I have to say I was quite pleasantly surprised to find out I couldn't stop listening until the incredible end of this story. I finished listening and just kept thinking "wow, what an ending!" I love the characters and the storyline is fantastic. I was looking forward to this one because I especially enjoy Viking stories but this surpassed my expectations.That rarely happens for me. Lizzy Ford is an amazing author and Lillian Yves is super to listen to. I can't wait to listen to the next book. I can't imagine where she could go from here.

I'm a newbie to investing and wanted to get some idea of what is involved, what types of things I can invest in and realistically, how much I would have to invest. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. When offered this book, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get some practical information from someone who knows what he is talking about. This is a fairly easy to understand guide. I find it's not a book I can listen to all at once since the stock market and investing is not what I find to be enjoyable listening. However, the more I am learning about it, the easier it is becoming. I've tried to talk to other people about finance and investing and always felt lost quite quickly. With this book, I was able to follow along without any problem...until I got bored and my mind started drifting off. I will be listening to this book several more times until I feel confident I understand everything. The narrator is also a major part of this book for me so I am pleased to say he did a fantastic job. He was clear and easy to listen to. For anyone interested in this book, I would definitely recommend giving it a try.

I liked the idea of this story but I didn't care for Mitch. For me, he wasn't terribly likeable. As soon as he saw Priscilla, he assumed Priscilla was just going to cause problems in his town because, without even talking to her, he had already made up his mind she was going to leave the children high and dry without a teacher again. Then, shortly after that he had her in his bed, taking her virginity without a second thought as to what that would do to her. Next, he tried to push her into marrying him. Arrogant, selfish and pushy. Not a good male lead for me. Priscilla was a good character and I did like her. Her heart was in the right place and her determination to teach the children and make a better future for the people of the town was commendable. I liked that she didn't let Mitch push her around. The narration for this book was very good. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

This audiobook is intended to help those people who wish to improve their life by teaching them how to awaken their dormant third eye and harness its true potential.
