Fierce Warrioress:Recognizing the Spiritual Battlefield and Learning to Fight Jennifer Johnson
It remains without question the most memorable and memorized speech in American history. On November 19, 1863, in 272 words delivered among the freshly dug graves of Union dead upon the country´s bloodiest battlefield, Abraham Lincoln redefined American liberty and forever altered the course of the nation. This volume aims to place the Gettysburg Address in its full context, examining both its influences and impacts, and approaching it from a number of modern perspectives. Never before in one anthology has Lincoln´s immortal address been viewed through such far-reaching lenses as emancipation, women´s rights, immigrant rights, LGBT rights, and more. The scholarship included in this audiobook is new and exciting, with each of its 15 essays providing further meditation on major themes in the evolution of freedom and equality in America. Edited by filmmaker Sean Conant and with contributions from some of the country´s leading scholars including Sean Wilentz, Craig L. Symonds, and Harold Holzer, this volume explores how in the century and a half since it was delivered, the Gettysburg Address has proven a seemingly inexhaustible source of somber reflection and soaring hope, and why its language continues to resonate with so many people seeking meaning for their own struggles and sacrifices. The full list of narrators includes: Dermot Mulroney, Neal McDonough, Jennifer Can Dyck, Tavia Gilbert, David Pittu, Robin Miles, Edoardo Ballerini, Jonathan Davis, Peter Ganim, Graeme Malcolm, Ellen Archer, Zach Gordon, and Stephen Lang.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.

Born from the blood soaked battlefields of the English countryside during the Wars of the Roses, the Tudor Dynasty begins with a sickly boy king and ends with a Virgin Queen. Over 200 years span the lifetime of one of history´s most notorious royal families. From political intrigue to religious revolution, the Tudors stamped an indelible imprint on humanity that can be still seen today. Meet Henry VIII and his six wives, Bloody Mary, Good Queen Bess, and explore the fascinating world of the House of Tudor. Excesses and universities, religious and civil disobedience, madness and brilliance, exile and murder were all parts of lives of the members of the Tudor line. Relive the history changing moments of the Tudor Dynasty beginning with the last king of the Lancastrian line, Henry VI, to the ushering in of the Golden Age under Elizabeth I. Follow the Tudor family as they defied convention time and again, spy on the powerful men and women at Court, and experience the unrest of the nation that embraced and rebuffed the Catholic Church. Escape the subterfuge and plotting of courtiers and explore the intellectual and architectural wonders patronized by the often nefarious family. Royal life may have been pampered, but the crown weighs heavier on some than others. Heartache, tragedy, arranged marriages, double dealings, war, and religious upheaval marked the lives of every member of the Tudor Dynasty. From warring houses to exploring the New World, the House of Tudor changed the world forever. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jennifer Howe.

Friends for Life is a story about the experiences and recollections of two women who were strangers brought together through the yearlong deployment of their soldiers during the Iraq War. Patti, the mother of Army medic Jon, and Jennifer, sister of infantry soldier James, forge a dear and lifelong friendship as their soldiers fight to stay alive in one of the most dangerous cities in Iraq. The story begins separately with the Patti and Jennifer´s recollections of the day their soldiers deployed to Iraq from Ft. Lewis, Washington. As the book progresses, their separate stories of Army life grow together as their soldier´s deployment continues. During the journey, tragedies occur and survival tactics are learned by the soldiers on the battlefield and the loved ones at home. The shared experiences, frequent communications, and constant support for each other grow into a sweet and lasting friendship. This story is a unique, nonfiction, war story, through the eyes and emotions of a mother and sister. Though the two women were separated by many things, including thousands of miles, age, and interests, they were drawn together by shared terrors and overwhelming desire to communicate with and send comfort to their soldiers. The Iraq War is a modern war. This book demonstrates the positives and negatives for the families of modern soldiers. Communication is instant, yet, timing is unpredictable. Often, those at home know more about recent events than the soldiers in the battles themselves do. Portions of this book contain actual instant messages with the soldiers, offering a window directly into the thoughts, words of expression, family closeness and anguish that was always present during the deployment. The book also serves as a guide to soldier´s families for surviving a deployment. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Kollins.

A warm-hearted, nostalgic and uplifting saga, The Songbirds of Colliers Row by Jennifer Hart is perfect for fans of Call the Midwife, Donna Douglas and Kate Thompson´s Secrets of the Singer Girls and for anyone with a song in their heart.... A village without a voice. That´s what the locals are saying about Llandegwen, deep in the Welsh valleys. The village choir, once a source of pride for the small mining community, has been forced to disband, the elderly choirmaster heartbroken by the empty seats belonging to those who´ll never return from the battlefields. The arrival of a young war widow from the East End with her little boy sets tongues wagging, not least when rumours abound that she´s looking to revive the choir. Can the community set aside their grief and lift their voices, and the village´s hopes, once more? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joan Walker.

A wonderful new storyteller unleashes a soaring debut that sweeps from the hills of Hawaii to the veldt of South Africa. Come Sunday is that joyous, special thing: a saga that captivates from the very first page, breaking our hearts while making our spirits soar. Abbe Deighton is a woman who has lost her bearings. Once a child of the African plains, she is now settled in Hawaii, married to a minister, and waging her battles in a hallway of monotony. There is the leaky roof, the chafing expectations of her husband´s congregation, and the constant demands of motherhood. But in an instant, beginning with the skid of tires, Abbe´s battlefield is transformed when her three-year-old daughter is killed, triggering in Abbe a seismic grief that will cut a swath through the landscape of her life and her identity. As Isla Morley´s novel sweeps from the hills of Honolulu to the veldt of South Africa, we catch a hint of the spirit of Barbara Kingsolver and the mesmerizing truth of Jodi Picoult. Come Sunday is a novel about searching for a true homeland, family bonds torn asunder, and the unearthing of decades-old secrets. It is a novel to celebrate, and Isla Morley is a writer to love. 1.

With this exciting and historically rich six-lecture course, experience for yourself the drama of this dynamic year in medieval history, centered on the landmark Norman Conquest. Taking you from the shores of Scandinavia and France to the battlefields of the English countryside, these lectures will plunge you into a world of fierce Viking warriors, powerful noble families, politically charged marriages, tense succession crises, epic military invasions, and much more. Your journey starts in the 10th and early 11th centuries, when power in England and Normandy was very much up for grabs - and when the small island nation was under continuous assault from Viking forces. Professor Paxton helps you gain a solid grasp of the complex political alliances and shifting relationships between figures such as Emma of Normandy, Cnut, and Edward the Confessor. She also recounts for you the two seminal battles that pitted England against the Scandinavians and the Normans: the Battle of Stamford Bridge and the Battle of Hastings. Throughout the lectures, Dr. Paxton opens your eyes to continued debates and controversies over this year and offers her own take on the Norman Conquest´s enduring legacy and the fascinating results of this epic clash. By exploring the year 1066 – what led up to it, what happened during that fateful year, and what changed as a result - you´ll gain a sharper perspective and a greater understanding of everything that would come afterward.
