It was the summer of 1972, and things were looking up for 16-year-old Dotty Johnson. She had found her soul mate and was in love for the very first time. She was the happiest she had ever been, until the dreaded news came: her family was moving again. She would be leaving her contented life and her soul mate behind, and would soon be searching her heart for God´s plan. In Morning Has Broken, author Dotty J. Edgerton shares her true stories about life´s journey. She humbly recounts her struggles through the teenage years, marked by a broken heart, a search for direction and purpose, and most importantly, following her ´´suppose to´s´´. Her hope and belief in God and her obedience to his calling held her firmly grounded through the years of battle: an abusive marriage, struggles of a working mother, job changes, and a head-on vehicle collision that almost took her life. Beautifully woven through her story is the theme of God´s faithfulness, illustrating ´´[T]hat all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.´´ (Romans 8:28, KJV). 1.

Meet the Perfect Man… no, no he’s not the hero of Thought You Were Dead. That would be Chellis Beith, literary researcher, slacker, reluctant detective, and a man bedeviled by every woman in his life. There’s his lost love, Elaine Champion, a now happily married inventor who uses him for market research, his best friend’s dotty ex-wife, Moe, his two vanished mothers, and his menacing boss, Athena Havlock, a celebrated writer who herself becomes embroiled in the dark side of fiction. The humour is wild, the language a thrill, the mystery within marvelously deft and daft. And as for the Perfect Man… well, nothing is as it seems. Is it? Thought You Were Dead is the most unconventional of all murder mysteries, turning the genre completely on its head, by bludgeoning flat language and Puritanical sensibilities with evident glee. This is further evidence that Terry Griggs is sui generis: an original and completely inimitable literary voice, with an eye for the cinematic. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gregg Margarite.

Alan Titchmarsh´s sparkling new novel is a delicious blend of humour and romance and a resounding affirmation that there is no such thing as the generation gap. The voice on the other end of the phone was severe. ´It´s your grandmother.´ ´Yes?´ ´She´s been arrested.´ Nick Robertson has become used to his grandmother Rosie´s dotty behaviour. At 86, a widow now, she is determined that before life passes her by, she will live a little. Or preferably a lot. It wouldn´t be so bad if Nick had nothing else to do, but with a job to find, two warring parents to cope with and a love life in terminal decline, he would prefer his grandmother to get on with things quietly. But, Rosie insists, there is no time like the present.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alan Titchmarsh. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/howe/003503/bk_howe_003503_sample.mp3.
