The Ambassador of Nowhere Texas

The Ambassador of Nowhere Texas

Author: Kimberly Willis Holt Narrator: Brittany Pressley Release Date: 01/01/2021

Kimberly Willis Holt's The Ambassador of Nowhere, Texas is a stunning post-9/11 companion to the National Book Award-winner When Zachary Beaver Came to Town. Decades after the Vietnam War and Toby’s life-changing summer with Zachary Beaver, Toby’s daughter Rylee is at a crossroads—her best friend Twig has started pushing her away just as Joe, a new kid from New York, settles into their small town of Antler. Rylee befriends Joe and learns that Joe’s father was a first responder on 9/11. The two unlikely friends soon embark on a project to find Zachary Beaver and hopefully reconnect him with Rylee's father almost thirty years later. This beautiful middle grade novel is a tribute to friendships—old and new—and explores the challenges of rebuilding what may seem lost or destroyed. Christy Ottaviano Books A Macmillan Audio production from Henry Holt and Company

"When I was a boy, my pa dowsed to earn extra money when we had a lean year. And when he put the branch in my hands for the first time, I felt a burning inside me because I had the gift, too. Just be thankful I didn't hand that gift down to you." Amos figured it was probably best not to tell his father that it was too late. What would you do if you knew you had a special gift-a sixth sense-that was passed down from one generation to the next? A gift that could help people in times of need, but one your father often saw as a trap. Would you use that gift? This is the story of Amos Kincaid, the dowser's son.

Dancing in Cadillac Light

Author: Kimberly Willis Holt Narrator: Kimberly Willis Holt Release Date: 01/01/2010

Whenever her feelings get the best of her, Jaynell Lambert climbs into an old junker in Clifton Bailey’s Automobile Salvage and Parts and pretends to drive away. It’s the summer of 1968, and within a year the dirt road in front of her house will be paved, Grandpap will move in, and men will walk on the moon. It’s enough to make anyone wonder. But for now, Jaynell, her sister, Racine, and their parents live with dust and potholes, dreaming of their lives turning into something grand. Grandpap’s moving in shouldn’t mean much more than Jaynell giving up her room and setting another place at the table. But when he goes out and buys a 1962 emerald green Cadillac convertible, nothing is the same again. Kimberly Willis Holt has written an unforgettable story of dreams and legacies, capturing a time when all of America joined together to watch the first man walk in the moon. A time when a Cadillac and the legacy of an old man could transform a family and show them how to dance.

Author: Kimberly Willis Holt Narrator: Kate Reading Release Date: 01/11/2006

The journey begins in 1939 with Rose, who moves with her mother and siblings from rural Texas to live with their estranged grandfather on the Louisiana bayou. Rose connects with this flavorful community by driving a bookmobile. Two decades later, Merle Henry, Rose’s son, is more passionate about trapping a mink than about reading, although there is a place in his heart for Old Yeller. In 1973, Merle Henry’s daughter, Annabeth, feels torn between reading childish fairy tales and a crush on her own real-life knight in shining armor. And in the present day, Annabeth’s son, Kyle, finds himself in a bind: He hates reading, but the only summer job he can get is at the library. In her people-smart way, Kimberly Willis Holt introduces us to a Louisiana family. Touching, lyrical, and always intriguing, their stories reveal the power-ful connections among four generations.
