Bestselling author Laurie Faria Stolarz's thrilling novel Jane Anonymous is a revelatory confessional of a seventeen-year-old girl's fight to escape a kidnapper-and her struggles to connect with loved ones and a life that no longer exists. Seven months. That's how long I was kept captive. Locked in a room with a bed, refrigerator, and adjoining bathroom, I was instructed to eat, bathe, and behave. I received meals, laundered clothes, and toiletries through a cat door, never knowing if it was day or night. The last time I saw the face of my abductor was when he dragged me fighting from the trunk of his car. My only solace was Mason-one of the other kidnapped teens-and our pact to one day escape together. But when that day finally came, I had to leave him behind. Now that I'm home, my parents and friends want everything to be like it was before I left. But they don't understand that dining out and shopping trips can't heal what's broken inside me. I barely leave my bedroom. Therapists are clueless and condescending. So I start my own form of therapy-but writing about my experience awakens uncomfortable memories, ones that should've stayed buried. When I ask the detectives assigned to my case about Mason, I get an answer I don't believe-that there were no traces of any other kidnapped kids. But I distinctly remember the screams, holding hands with Mason through a hole in my wall, and sharing a chocolate bar. I don't believe he wasn't really there and I'm determined to find him. How far will I have to go to uncover the truth of what happened-and will it break me forever?Show more
*Read for the first time by an all-female cast* James Allen's revolutionary treatise on the power of thought, combined with the bonus audiobook Mastery of Destiny. Originally published in 1903, James Allen's As A Man Thinketh reveals the fundamental truth of human nature: "A man is literally what he thinks." Allen's deceptively simple principle has changed the lives of millions of readers and listeners, making As A Man Thinketh a classic bestseller for decades. Allen explains that our character, identity, ability, and success are all determined by the thoughts in our minds. Instead of finding ourselves victims of the world, there exists within each of us the ability to shape and define our own destinies. Finances, health, social status, and success are all external manifestations of the thoughts that populate our minds. Allen offers listeners an opportunity to seize control of their minds and in doing so create the lives they've always imagined. This new edition combines As A Man Thinketh with another of Allen's companion works, Mastery of Destiny. In Mastery of Destiny, Allen shows that the natural progression of human evolution is away from the evil that results from ignorance and towards ultimate good. Combined in one program, these two audiobooks offer a revolutionary outlook of empowerment. This program is read by Adelia Saunders, Barrie Kreinik, Carly Robins, Eleanor Hutchins, Emily Bauer, Emily Lawrence, Fiona Hardingham, Greer Morrison, Joel Fotinos, Natalie Naudus, Sophie Amoss, Therese Plummer, Vivienne Leheny, and Xe Sands.Show more
