Everything changed between them the first time he called her Katie. Katherine Yoder has loved Johnny Mullet since the two were children, but he's never returned her affections. Now Johnny is trying to forge a new life for himself by purchasing a farm and building a business of his own. But times are tough, and he soon learns that he can't take anything for granted-especially Katherine. Before Johnny has the opportunity to tell Katherine his true feelings, she's struck by a serious illness. While Katherine struggles to recall recent memories of Johnny, a surprise visitor comes back into her life, claiming that his letters speak of a history and a future for the two of them. With the two men vying for her attention and her memory still elusive, Katherine has never felt so torn. But will the solutions to both Johnny's and Katherine's problems lie in places neither one has ever considered?

Valkyrie: The Women of the Viking World

Valkyrie: The Women of the Viking World

Author: Jóhanna Katrín Friðriksdóttir Narrator: Ann Richardson Release Date: 01/06/2021

Valkyries: the female supernatural beings that choose who dies and who lives on the battlefield. They protect some, but guide spears, arrows, and sword blades into the bodies of others. Viking myths about valkyries attempt to elevate the banality of war-to make the pain and suffering, the lost limbs and deformities, the piles of lifeless bodies of young men, glorious and worthwhile. Rather than their death being futile, it is their destiny and good fortune, determined by divine beings. The women in these stories take full part in the power struggles and upheavals in their communities, for better or worse. Drawing on the latest historical and archaeological evidence, Valkyrie introduces listeners to the dramatic and fascinating texts recorded in medieval Iceland, a culture able to imagine women in all kinds of roles carrying power, not just in this world, but pulling the strings in the other-world, too. In the process, this fascinating book uncovers the reality behind the myths and legends to reveal the dynamic, diverse lives of Viking women.

All the Brains in the Business: The Engendered Brain in the 21st Century Organization

All the Brains in the Business: The Engendered Brain in the 21st Century Organization

Author: Kate Lanz, Paul Brown Narrator: Ann Richardson Release Date: 01/06/2021

The power of gender difference, not gender equality, is a secret source for success. Some smart businesses are starting to wake up to this fact. This audiobook explores why and how. Properly valuing brain gender diversity in the workplace is one of the biggest and largely untapped sources of competitive advantage for modern businesses. Recent advances in neuroscience provide the key to unlocking it. Modern research shows that there are gender-based differences in the brain-it's just not as simple as a binary between a "male brain" and "female brain." In fact, our brains are like a mosaic where many of the tiles are available in thousands of shades on a spectrum between pink and blue. The problem is that our workplaces tend to be governed by structures, processes, and cultures that are practically pure blue. All the brains in the business that are elsewhere on the spectrum cannot thrive as they might, so sources of productivity, creativity, and agility go untapped. Anyone who manages people needs to understand how the brain works and the impact it has on how people work together as teams. Anyone who wants to unlock the talent and productivity of all of their people needs to understand how recent findings around male- and female-type brains should shape the way they manage. Leading applied neuroscientists and international corporate coaches Kate Lanz and Paul Brown show you why and how to access all the brains in your business.

Advice for Working Moms

Advice for Working Moms

Author: Harvard Business Review Narrator: Ann Richardson Release Date: 01/05/2021

Your kid gets sick, so you leave work early-again. You're an expert at driving the carpool line and setting up for the morning meeting. You missed out on another stretch assignment because you don't have time. It's assumed you'll bake the treats for the fundraiser-and man the table. As a working mother you often draw the short straw. You carry most of the burden of caregiving and household chores-and your career suffers because of it. Bosses and coworkers assume that since you're focused on your family, you don't prioritize work, and they give crucial opportunities to those around you. Advice for Working Moms can help you alleviate this stress. Drawing on the wisdom of experts and parents alike, it will help you strike the right balance between family and work, all while navigating the long-standing bias against mothers and, more broadly, women in the workforce. You'll learn to: establish the boundaries you need at home and at work; negotiate flextime, time off, and maternity leave; facilitate your return to work after taking time off for caregiving; combat the 'motherhood penalty'; negotiate a more equal division of labor at home with your partner; and say no to 'office housework' and other menial tasks at work.

Nine Days in Heaven: A True Story

Nine Days in Heaven: A True Story

Author: Dennis Prince, Nolene Prince Narrator: Ann Richardson Release Date: 01/05/2021

Just over one hundred fifty years ago, in Berlin, New York, twenty-five-year-old Marietta Davis suddenly fell into an unconscious state, from which neither family nor physician could arouse her. When she finally regained consciousness, she described with almost supernatural perception how angels had escorted her spirit to Heaven and Hell. Her vision made her the talk of the community and a legend for generations to come. Nine Days in Heaven brings the story of Marietta Davis to a new generation. The nineteenth-century language of the original has been updated for easier understanding, but the detailed portrayal of her vision remains intact. - Journey with Marietta to the shimmering reaches of PARADISE, where the redeemed enjoy the beauties of the new creation. - Observe children who died on earth as they are taught the MYSTERIES of God in infants' Heaven. - Grieve at the PLIGHT of the lost as they suffer the wages of sin. Supported by biblical references and practical observations, Nine Days in Heaven is more than the fanciful creation of a young woman's imagination. It is a travel guide to the life to come.

The Science of Pets

In the US, more than half of households have a pet-usually more than one. They're usually considered members of the family, and some of us even call them our "furry children." The strength of the human-pet bond tells us as much or more about ourselves as it does about our pets, and in this audiobook, we look at why dogs and cats behave the way they do and what makes our bond with them so strong.

Song of Leira

Author: Gillian Bronte Adams Narrator: Ann Richardson Release Date: 01/04/2021

The Song bids her rise to battle. Reeling from her disastrous foray into the Pit, Birdie, the young Songkeeper, retreats into the mountains. But in the war-torn north, kneeling on bloodstained battlefields to sing the souls of the dying to rest, her resolve to accept her calling is strengthened. Such evil cannot go unchallenged. Torn between oaths to protect the Underground runners and to rescue his friend from the slave camps, Ky Huntyr enlists Birdie's aid. Their mission to free the captives unravels the horrifying thread connecting the legendary spring, Artair's sword, and the slave camps. But the Takhran's schemes are already in motion. Powerful singers have arisen to lead his army - singers who can shake the earth and master the sea - and monsters rampage across the land. As Leira falters on the verge of defeat, the Song bids her rise to battle, and the Songkeeper must answer.
