The Power of Being Heard

The Power of Being Heard

Author: Katy Byrne M.A Lmft Narrator: Becky Parker Release Date: 01/03/2021

The Power of Being Heard is about having a voice and how it can invigorate your life, build satisfying relationships and change the world. Katy’s funny, vivid, honest stories and helpful tools for simple, easy to remember ways to have conversation in conflict will help you, even while sweating through it. Her stories about the cost of unspoken words will inspire you to speak up and listen more respectfully, even when you don’t want to. Katy became passionate about the reparative power of working through conflict growing up in a family with deadly silences or verbal attacks and criticisms. Through divorce and broken friendships she wondered why personal and political separation, strife and isolation was so rampant. Witnessing, as a psychotherapist for forty years, the renewed vigor and intimacy possible from building better communication and understanding between couples and families formerly in anguish, she has seen transformations that were more widely possible. These partners often started out with radiant love, then devolved into threadbare tires, going round and round the same arguments with no resolution – before learning, what Katy calls, “relationship 101.” This miraculous shift seemed possible on the globe as well. Katy admits, nobody wants to enter scary conversations, not even her. “Why bother,” she asks candidly? “Pick your battles,” it’s not your problem that your sister or neighbors are rude. Our natural instinct is to attack or walk away. What we forget is the soothing relief, new safety and circulation in our bodies and the body of the world when we find ways to get along. The problem is that we leave a hole in the fabric of our communities when we don’t bridge gaps, leaving us wearing an itchy sweater. Any small act of having a voice takes risk, it is the ultimate bravery. “My aim is to encourage this essential paradigm shift, from allowing power over us, to the new narrative – the heroic power of being heard.”

The Laced Chameleon

The Laced Chameleon

Author: Bob Rogers Narrator: Becky Parker Release Date: 01/03/2021

New Orleans native Mademoiselle Francesca Dumas is a kept woman. At age eighteen in the second year of the American Civil War, she is the concubine of a rich New Orleans banker, Joachim Buisson. Born a quadroon, Francesca leads a sheltered life of elegant jewels, gowns, lace, and lavish balls—until a bullet shatters her dream world. An assassin murders “her man” as Francesca stood beside him among a throng gathered atop a Mississippi River levee on April 25, 1862. Bowed by Joachim’s body, rain-soaked and blood-spattered, she vows revenge. Francesca’s passionate desire for retribution drives her into a new life as a sleuth. Becoming a detective to solve a murder mystery is far from the role of women in 1862 New Orleans—especially a woman who perceives herself to be African American but appears to be white. As Francesca’s investigation begins, the assassin kills two more people and kidnaps Francesca’s best friend, Emily. Driven to recover Emily and avenge Joachim, Francesca’s arduous mental and physical journey takes a circuitous route—far from a concubine’s life of extravagant balls, lace, and leisure. Amid the flowering of spring and early summer in New Orleans, she finds herself mired deep in the perilous abyss between Union, French, and Confederate spies. Aboard mule-drawn streetcars, Francesca’s gumshoe work takes her through Vieux Carré, Tremé, and many famous city streets in search of the assassin’s motive, means, and opportunity to commit mayhem. In her undercover role, she frequents Café du Monde, Antoine’s Restaurant, and the famous ballroom at the present-day Bourbon Orleans Hotel. Francesca gets help from three historic people of New Orleans; humanitarian Mother Henriette Delille, actress Sarah Butler, and Union spy John Mahan. Can rookie detective Francesca’s passion, determination, and wit overcome a kidnapper and three-time murderer?

One Hundred Years of Exile: A Romanov's Search for Her Father's Russia

One Hundred Years of Exile: A Romanov's Search for Her Father's Russia

Author: Tania Romanov Narrator: Becky Parker Release Date: 01/11/2020

One Hundred Years of Exile: In Search of My Father’s Russia is the story of one woman’s journey through 100 years of history to find peace with her father. Tania Romanov Amochaev and her father were both exiled from their homelands as infants; both knew life in refugee camps. Their shared fate does not lead to mutual understanding. The family’s immigration to San Francisco heralded a promising new future—but while Tania just wanted to be an American, her father could not trust that this was his final asylum. His fears and his resistance to assimilation leave Tania with deep resentment toward him and her Russian heritage. Decades later, his unexpected death exposes Tania’s open wounds and a host of unanswered questions about her father and his story. A serendipitous meeting with a last surviving member of the Russian royal family, followed by a baffling error that miraculously connects her with unknown relatives, catapults Tania on a quest for answers in her father’s homeland. Tania’s story proves inseparable from Russia’s, featuring Cossacks who fled revolution, a family who survived Stalin, and a family of royal exiles, culminating in a meeting between princess and peasant. One Hundred Years of Exile is a moving story of how revisiting the past can bring not only forgiveness and redemption, but something far more powerful as well.

Where Flows the Creek: a Romp in the eDimension

Where Flows the Creek: a Romp in the eDimension

Author: David Colin Carr Narrator: Becky Parker Release Date: 01/11/2020

Intrigued by a dream, an aging elf adventures beyond the meadow creek he has called home since being sent into the wilderness as an orphan. Driven by insatiable curiosity, he sets off with only the words of a nursery rhyme to direct him: If ever you’re lost in confusion, Turn to the creek and its flow: Meandering, falling through gorge, Through desert, in drought, or in snow. Step forth with a stride quick and steady. Trust guidance to come as you go. Its course from the crest of the Rockies to the vast Pacific leads him through a colorful spectrum of lives and deaths of roadrunners that heal and hummingbird historians, a halfling and a blundering alchemist, both empathic and aggressive cacti, an effete bullfrog and a giggling mama bear. The lyrical prose builds till the Deepest Longing we each carry calls his heart Homeward. Learn the ways of water and glimpse the biodiversity of our spectacular American West. Join the ever-changing dance of creek and elf as they pass among a delightful contingent of creatures who have lessons for Rowan’s ebbing life . . . and perhaps yours. “A cult classic.” Nancy London, co-author of Our Bodies, Our Selves. “Rich imagery to be enjoyed in small bites . . . like chocolate.” Rev. Jane Bronson “A charming, untraditional introduction to the realms of aging and dying and death.” L James Johnson, author of The Jesus Principle “Exquisite, precious, pure delight.” Connie Clark, author of Joy After 50: A Woman’s Guide “But elves don’t die!” Elizabeth Pomada, literary agent. As the otter asks, entrusting the elf to the rapids he has never dared pass through himself: “You must enter the river as you entered life: with eyes focused on the journey. Would we choose life if we were looking only at its destination?”
