Barbara Mahany writes, ´´Mothering was my crash course in love. Love of the sort I call Divine. Love in the way we yearn to be loved: Without end. Without question. Without giving in to exhaustion. Love with a big and boundless heart. Love with eyes and ears - and soul - wide open. Love even when it´s not so easy.´´ In Motherprayer, Mahany generously shares personal love letters on the mysteries and gifts of mothering, interspersed with family recipes and gentle essays, all offering beautiful lessons in how to love and how to love well. In her bracingly honest style, she captures the ephemeral moments of motherhood - the hard, the glorious, the laughter, and the tears - and invites listeners to pay attention, cradle our loved ones in prayer, and see the sacred lessons in loving. These stirring meditations bring into sharp focus one essential question: How do we love breathtakingly? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Erin Moon.

David Rosenfelt´s loyal followers of the Andy Carpenter series are familiar with Tara, the Golden Retriever sidekick. Many also got to know Tara from Dogtripping, David´s tales about becoming a slightly nutty dog rescuer and the dog that started it all. Here, finally, is a book all about the inspirational canine who taught David everything he knows. Well, he did know how to tie his shoes before he met and came to love Tara, but that´s about it. Through Tara, David learned about dating, about being able to share his emotions, and also about everyday stuff like who gets to use the pillow if several dogs are sleeping in your bed (clue: It´s not the human) and why random barking will never be something that can be eliminated. Lessons from Tara is infused with David´s trademark wry and self-deprecating sense of humor, and will move listeners to tears and laughter. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff Steitzer.

ABOUT THE BOOK I learned many lessons from my time in Paris, but the most profound lesson I learned was to lead a life of passion. Every detail of life can become exceptional if you allow it to be so. You hold the key. When filled with laughter, friendship, art, intellectual endeavors and a certain verve life can be extraordinary. You should know, this book is a quick read. Before you can really settle in to figure out whether you disagree with it or love it, you´re at acknowledgments and find yourself thoroughly entertained. At a modest 146 pages, this work is more reminiscent of a lighthearted diary than a manual tightly packed with style tips. It is no surprise then that the book originated as a blog entry on The Daily Connoisseur, Jennifer L. Scott´s beauty and lifestyle blog. A crossover between a memoir, a humor column, and fly-on-the-wall reporting, Lessons from Madame Chic: The Top 20 Things I Learned While Living in Paris, successfully provides solutions on how to incorporate the best of Parisian wisdom into our daily lives. As a University of Southern California student with understanding parents (read: who agreed to pay for the trip) and a personal sense of adventure (read: a very limited grasp of the French language), Jennifer L. Scott decides to take a semester abroad to expand her cultural horizons beyond California´s laid-back attitude. Her time spent in Paris teaches her that a little formality in our daily lives can reignite pleasure in performing even the simplest of tasks (i.e. having meals at the same time every day or dressing appropriately for bed every night). MEET THE AUTHOR Evelyn Dumonte hails from a very tiny country of Estonia...you´ll find her traveling, reading, participating in general ´´debauchery´´, and making new friends. She has several degrees and some accolades but she´d much rather tell you about the time she smuggled a kitten on an airplane out of Russia.
