Flesh & Blood: Reflections on Infertility, Family, and Creating a Bountiful Life

Flesh & Blood: Reflections on Infertility, Family, and Creating a Bountiful Life

Author: N. West Moss Narrator: Erin Spencer Release Date: 01/10/2021

“I drive and think to myself, if I am dying, if this is how I die, then this is how I die.” When N. West Moss finds herself bleeding uncontrollably in the middle of a writing class, she drives herself to the hospital, rather than bother anyone about an ambulance. Because she is a writer, she can’t help her next thoughts: “The word ‘exsanguinate’ comes bubbling up into my mind as I drive. Perhaps I am exsanguinating. Bleeding out. It’s a magnificent word, exsanguinate. Exsanguination. Latin, probably. Worth a zillion points in Scrabble.”   For a while, doctors cannot figure out exactly what is wrong with Moss, but eventually surgery is determined to be the answer, a hysterectomy. We follow Moss through her surgery and recovery, as her thoughts turn naturally to her previous struggles with infertility—but what makes her such an engaging narrator is that even when she is low and on bedrest her curiosity is limitless. Among her interests: social insects, yellow fever, good cocktails, the history of New Orleans, and always the natural world, including the praying mantis in her sunroom whom she names Claude. When she is finally able to walk a bit, we meet the delightful monks who live up the road from her. And we learn about the line of women in Moss’s family, her deep connections to her mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Moss discovers that there are other ways besides children to leave a legacy and there is joy in living day to day. And she learns that grief is not a stopping place but a companion that travels along with us through everything, even happiness.   Flesh and Blood will resonate with the millions of women who have dealt with miscarriages and infertility and with everyone who loves a beautifully told story by a quirky and poetic observer of this dramatic and glorious world.

The Sunset Route: Freight Trains, Forgiveness, and Freedom on the Rails in the American West

The Sunset Route: Freight Trains, Forgiveness, and Freedom on the Rails in the American West

Author: Carrot Quinn Narrator: Erin Spencer Release Date: 01/07/2021

The unforgettable story of one woman who leaves behind her hardscrabble childhood in Alaska to travel the country via freight train-a beautiful memoir about forgiveness, self-discovery, and the redemptive power of nature, perfect for fans of Wild or Educated. "An urgent read. A courageous life. Quinn's story burns through us and bleeds beauty on every page."-Noé Álvarez, author of Spirit Run: A 6,000-Mile Marathon Through North America's Stolen Land After a childhood marked by neglect, poverty, and periods of homelessness, with a mother who believed herself to be the reincarnation of the Virgin Mary, Carrot Quinn moved out on her own. She found a sense of belonging among straight-edge anarchists who taught her how to traverse the country by freight trains, sleep in fields under the stars, and feed herself by foraging in dumpsters. Her new life was one of thrilling adventure and freedom, but still she was haunted by the ghosts of her lonely and traumatic childhood. The Sunset Route is a powerful and brazenly honest adventure memoir set in the unseen corners of the United States-in the Alaskan cold, on trains rattling through forests and deserts, as well as in low-income apartments and crowded punk houses-following a remarkable protagonist who has witnessed more tragedy than she thought she could ever endure and who must learn to heal her own heart. Ultimately, it is a meditation on the natural world as a spiritual anchor, and on the ways that forgiveness can set us free.

Limelight & Larceny: The Crew-Building Con

Limelight & Larceny: The Crew-Building Con

These actors are going to steal more than the show. The Tandem Players love their community theater almost as much as they love the sweet old landlady who gave them a home to perform their plays in over the years. But when she passes away, and the will that was to leave the Broadtown Theater to the acting troupe disappears, they don’t even have time to mourn their loss. Her son comes in like a wrecking ball, brandishing a twenty-year-old will and an ultimatum: leave, or be buried under the rubble when he has the place demolished. The ragtag group of actors—a street magician, a former stuntwoman, an IT student, an FX specialist, a leading man, and their stage manager—will have to pool their talents and steal the will back. And they’ll have to act fast, because the next wrecking ball that swings in is going to be a real one.

One Way or Another

One Way or Another

Author: Kara Mcdowell Narrator: Erin Spencer Release Date: 01/10/2020

The average person makes 35,000 decisions every single day. That's about 34,999 too many for Paige Collins, who lives in debilitating fear of making the wrong choice. The simple act of picking an art elective is enough to send her into a spiral of whatifs. What if she's destined to be a famous ceramicist but wastes her talent in drama club? What if there's a carbon monoxide leak in the ceramics studio and everyone drops dead? (Grim, but possible!) That's why when Paige is presented with two last-minute options for Christmas vacation, she's paralyzed by indecision. Should she go with her best friend (and longtime crush) Fitz to his family's romantic mountain cabin? Or should she accompany her mom to New York, a city Paige has spent her whole life dreaming about? Just when it seems like Paige will crack from the pressure of choosing, fate steps in -- in the form of a slippery grocery store floor -- and Paige's life splits into two very different parallel paths. One path leads to New York where Paige falls for the city . . . and the charms of her unexpected tour guide. The other leads to the mountains where Paige might finally get her chance with Fitz . . . until her anxiety threatens to ruin everything

The Voter File

The Voter File

Author: David Pepper Narrator: Erin Spencer, George Newbern, Ron Butler Release Date: 01/06/2020

'Pepper comes through again with this clever tale of how cyber sabotage of elections, coupled with highly concentrated ownership of traditional media operations, can undermine American democracy.'--President Bill Clinton A twisty, one-step-ahead-of-the-headlines political thriller featuring a rogue reporter who investigates election meddling of epic proportions written by the ultimate insider. Investigative reporter Jack Sharpe is down to his last chance. Fired from his high-profile gig with a national news channel, his only lead is a phone full of messages from a grad student named Tori Justice, who swears she's observed an impossible result in a local election. Sharpe is sure she's mistaken...but what if she isn't? Sharpe learns that the most important tool in any election is the voter file: the database that keeps track of all voters in a district, and shapes a campaign's game plan for victory. If one person were to gain control of an entire party's voter file, they could manipulate the outcome of virtually every election in America. Sharpe discovers this has happened--and that the person behind the hack is determined to turn American politics upside down. The more he digs, the more Sharpe is forced to question the values--and viability--of the country he loves and a president he admired. And soon it becomes clear that not just his career is in jeopardy...so is his life.
