Summary

Hosts of the award-winning Whine Down podcast, Jana Kramer and Michael Caussin explore the raw and real moments of their marriage - what it means to love, to fight, and to sincerely forgive - with spiritual guidance and practical advice for anyone seeking stronger, more fulfilling love. From the beginning, Mike and Jana had the kind of everyday arguments that drive even the happiest couples apart. Money, careers, insecurity, jealousy...and then kids, infidelity, addiction, and growing walls around their individual hearts. Many people would have separated. But Jana and Mike discovered something invaluable: While fighting under the worst possible circumstances, they learned how to fight for each other with respect, kindness, humor, and faith. The Good Fight reveals how one couple decided to honor their forever love by battling it out and staying together, told from both sides. With honesty, warmth, and hilarity, Jana and Mike walk us through the details of the most complicated fights of their past. They show listeners how they've communicated, prayed, forgiven, and radically embraced each other to live their happiest, most fulfilling lives possible, and offer lessons anyone - married, dating, single - can use to give and receive lasting love.

Summary

A sequel to the H. G. Wells classic The War of the Worlds, brilliantly realized by award-winning SF author and Wells expert Stephen Baxter. It has been 14 years since the Martians invaded England. The world has moved on, always watching the skies but content that we know how to defeat the Martian menace. Machinery looted from the abandoned capsules and war machines has led to technological leaps forward. The Martians are vulnerable to earth germs. The army is prepared. So when the signs of launches on Mars are seen, there seems little reason to worry. Unless you listen to one man, Walter Jenkins, the narrator of Wells' book. He is sure that the Martians have learned, adapted, understood their defeat. He is right. Thrust into the chaos of a new invasion, a journalist - sister-in-law to Walter Jenkins - must survive, escape, and report on the war. The massacre of mankind has begun.

Kings of Rock & Roll

Summary

Kings of Rock and Roll is the story of Billy and Eddy King, one white, one black, and both musical prodigies. When joined by brothers Danny and Mickey Prince and drummer Phil Jester, they became Kings Court and became teenage music legends in the Deep South in the 1960s and '70s. Their collective stories weave a tantalizingly accurate picture of life in hundreds of textile towns across the Southeast during the era of civil rights and the Vietnam War.  Music is the bond that holds the band members together and drives them to the fame and fortune their respective musical talents demand. Neither fame nor fortune, life proves, is in the destiny of two kings, two princes, and a court jester, the five young men who make up Kings Court. The story of how their musical careers begin and end, and how their later years bring them closer together than ever before, creates a tapestry of life in America the 1960s, '70s, and beyond.

Goodbye Mr. Kang

Summary

In audiobook two of the Davis Sisters Adventures series, South Carolina sisters Karlie and Katherine Davis are asked to find and eliminate a group of global business leaders who conspire to destabilize the economies of the world's five largest economic countries, including the US. 

Based on the Davis Sisters' success in destroying Al-Qaeda, in audiobook one, Warrior Sisters: Revenge for 911, this latest assignment seems relatively simple. It isn't! Both sisters suffer greatly, both physically and psychologically, at the hands of these evil men. In the end, good once again triumphs over evil, but the cost to Karlie and Katherine Davis prove to be enormous. 

The global case of espionage and economic pandering by some of the world's richest and most influential people takes the Davis sisters across four continents and dozens of countries. Success in Goodbye Mr. Kang is measured more so in survival than end results. From the malaise of high-stakes economic and political power-playing emerges a single, mysterious face of evil: Joseph Bolling. 

As the Davis sisters and their cast of friends within ATUR, a highly classified, highly secretive organization within the US Department of Defense, come of age, listeners get a glimpse of life on the seedy underbelly of global espionage, politics, and economics.

Finding Morning Son

Summary

Anthony Mareno Peron is the son of South American terrorist, drug lord, and political activist Antonio Peron. When the elder Peron and most of the leadership of his organization, known collectively as Peronists, is killed by US agents in Venezuela, his much more vicious and ambitious son takes control of the organization. The younger Peron re-names his family's criminal business empire Morning Son. When Morning Son aggressively begins expanding it's operations into the continental US, the US Department of Defense assigns its highly classified and secretive agency, ATUR, to find and destroy A.M. Peron and Morning Son. The search takes ATUR members Kat Davis, Karlie Davis and their highly trained associates the South Pacific, New Zealand, throughout North America, and Europe. Though the Davis Sisters find and destroy both A.M. Peron and Morning Son, success comes at a high cost and leaves both the Department of Defense and ATUR with more questions than answers. The diverse cast of characters in Finding Morning Son provides a unique historical look at the dark underside of espionage and counter-espionage, as the Davis Sisters and their team learn how far-reaching touch of the one-time small South American terrorist organization has grown. Their previous adventure of finding and destroying a group of international billionaires, who planned to disrupt global banking and communications, and control the world, almost killed Katherine "Kat" Davis and nearly emotionally destroyed her sister, Karlie Davis. Finding their own identity in this experience forces them to take a much more hard-core approach to find Morning Son.

A Rhythm of Prayer

Summary

New York Times best seller... For the weary, the angry, the anxious, and the hopeful, this collection of moving, tender prayers offers rest, joyful resistance, and a call to act, written by Barbara Brown Taylor, Amena Brown, Nadia Bolz-Weber, and other artists and thinkers, curated by the author Glennon Doyle calls “my favorite faith writer." It’s no secret that we are overworked, overpressured, and edging burnout. Unsurprisingly, this fact is as old as time - and that’s why we see so many prayer circles within a multitude of church traditions. These gatherings are a trusted space where people seek help, hope, and peace, energized by God and one another. This book, curated by acclaimed author Sarah Bessey, celebrates and honors that prayerful tradition in a literary form. A companion for all who feel the immense joys and challenges of the journey of faith, this collection of prayers says it all aloud, giving readers permission to recognize the weight of all they carry. These writings also offer a broadened imagination of hope - of what can be restored and made new. Each prayer is an original piece of writing, with new essays by Sarah Bessey throughout. Encompassing the full breadth of the emotional landscape, these deeply tender yet subversive prayers give readers an intimate look at the diverse language and shapes of prayer.
