In September 1984, Lisa Paul, an American college student and nanny living in Moscow, entered Inna Meiman’s house for her first Russian language lesson. And so began a two–year friendship and a fight for Inna’s life. In Swimming in the Daylight, Lisa chronicles her friend’s struggle to shed her refusenik status, obtain a visa to America, and find medical treatment for her malignant cancer. Inna endured a perverse reality as a citizen of the Soviet Union: By refusing her permission to emigrate, her government denied her the ability to seek life-saving cancer treatment in Western countries. In effect, Inna explained to Lisa, this refusal was a form of Soviet persecution of her and her husband Naum, a member of the Moscow Helsinki Watch Group fighting for human rights in the U.S.S.R., for being Jewish. Spurred by outrage and the desire to help her friend, Lisa returned to the United States, vowing to do all she could to get Inna out of Moscow. She staged a hunger strike, held a press conference, and galvanized American politicians to fight for Inna’s freedom. All these efforts eventually persuaded Mikhail Gorbachev to issue Inna a visa in December 1986, when she finally stepped foot on American soil. At a time when international strife seemed insurmountable and worries at home seemed paralyzing, this story taught - and continues to teach - people everywhere that courage and willpower define a person and that individuals have the power to change the future. 1.

A Call to Vengeance: Book III of Manticore Asce...

After the disastrous attack on the Manticoran home system by forces unknown, the Royal Manticoran Navy stands on the brink of collapse. A shadowy enemy with the resources to hurl warships across hundreds of light years seeks to conquer the Star Kingdom for reasons unknown, while forces from within Manticore's own government seek to discredit and weaken the Navy for reasons very much known: their own political gain. It's up to officers like Travis Long and Lisa Donnelly to defend the Star Kingdom and the Royal Manticoran Navy from these threats, but the challenge is greater than any they have faced before. Weakened but not defeated, the mercenary forces and their mysterious employer could return at any time, and the anti-Navy faction within Parliament is growing. The situation becomes even more dire when fresh tragedy strikes the Star Kingdom. While the House of Winton faces their enemies at home, Travis, Lisa, and the other officers of the Royal Manticoran Navy must reunite with old friends and join new allies to hunt down and eliminate the forces arrayed against them in a galaxy-spanning conspiracy. Manticore has learned that the universe is not a safe place, but the Star Kingdom's enemies are about to learn a lesson of their own! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eric Michael Summerer.

Princess Noire: The Tumultuous Reign of Nina Si...

Nadine Cohodas's biography of the passionate, talented and difficult, but ultimately lovable, Nina Simone is an object lesson in American life. With thorough interviews and research, much new material and information that has never before come to light, Nadine tells the story of Eunice Wayman, born in Tryon NC in 1933, with a stunning musical talent that was spotted early by family and friends. Trained as a classical pianist through the charitable auspices of a local white woman who paid for her lessons and made sure she had access to a first-rate piano teacher, Eunice became Nina Simone only after the devastating disappointment of not being accepted at the highly exclusive Curtis Institute of Music. She had planned to be a classical musician, and much of her life and career were colored by this fact -- as was her music, making her attack on a typical jazz tune uniquely heady and virtuosic. In the summer of 1954, in order to make a living, Eunice took a job playing the piano at a bar in Atlantic City, and before long she was not just playing but singing and was becoming Nina Simone, the marquis name she picked for these first gigs. The rest is history, or becomes so with Nadine's ministrations. We watch the exciting rise of Nina's discovery of herself as a singer (by 1959 she had a hit with "I Love You Porgy" and had sung Town Hall, was well received and on her way), her unique and challenging relationship with her audiences (she would "shush"; them angrily -- as a classically trained musician, she didn't believe in cabaret chat ), her involvement in and contributions to the Civil Rights Movement (through songs such as her seminal "Mississippi Goddam" and friendships with James Baldwin, Lorraine Hainsbury and Langston Hughes), her marriage and brief family contentment with the police detective Andy Stroud, with whom she had her daughter Lisa. Alongside these threads runs a darker one: Nina's increasing and sometimes baffling 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Renee Pitts.

Six tales of titillating monster mayhem wrapped into one. Follow international thief Alex Finch as the White Rabbit teaches him a lesson he won't soon forget. The moral of the story: Don't steal unless you want to put your ass on the line. This is the entire series (Books 1 - 6).Alex and the Genie (Book 1): Alex Finch was a world-renowned art thief with an impressive resume. He had stolen some of the most highly regarded paintings on the face of the planet, from The Mona Lisa, in the Louvre, to The Starry Night, in the Museum of Modern Art. Nothing was too big of a challenge for Alex. Alex and the Tentacle Monster (Book 2): Alex awoke to the cool night's breeze, knowing that he had to press onward in his journey to meet with the Demon of Hearts. Soon, Alex stumbles upon a garden of flowers. While seemingly innocent, there's a predator lurking within who is hungry for the pleasures of his body. Alex and the Fairy (Book 3): Alex's luck seems to change when he wakes up in the safety of a fairy city. While he's tempted to stick around, his quest for the white rabbit cannot be delayed. The only way out of the fairy village, however, is to seduce a very sexy fairy prince.

When a pack gangs up on him, there's nothing that Alex can do but succumb to their desires or be killed for his reluctance. Alex and the Vampire (Book 5): Despite all of his efforts, Alex cannot escape the grasp of the vampires. Their leader seems disinterested in Alex's quest and far more interested in his body. Alex and the Demon (Book 6): The exciting conclusion to the Alex in Wonder 1. Language: English.

In September 1984, Lisa Paul, an American college student living in Moscow and working as a nanny, enters Inna Meiman’s house for her first Russian language lesson. And so begins a two-year friendship and fight for Inna’s life. Swimming in the Daylight chronicles Inna’s struggle to shed her refusenik status and to be granted a visa to travel to America, seeking medical treatment for the cancer that is slowly killing her. Inna reveals an indomitable spirit as she endures a perverse reality as a citizen of the Soviet Union—she must deny invitations from countries in the West to receive life-saving cancer treatment due to her inability to receive a visa from her own government. This refusal, Inna explains to Lisa, is the Soviet authorities’ way of persecuting her and her husband Naum, a member of the Moscow Helsinki Watch Group fighting for human rights in the USSR. Spurred by outrage and the desire to help her friend, Lisa returns to the United States, vowing to do all she can to get Inna out of Moscow. Lisa stages a hunger strike, holds a press conference, and galvanizes American politicians to fight for Inna’s freedom. All these efforts eventually succeed in pursuing Mikhail Gorbachev to issue Inna a visa in December 1986, and she finally steps foot on American soil. At a time when international strife seems insurmountable and worries at home seem to paralyze, this story will teach people everywhere that it is the courage inside that defines a person and can change the future. Contains a new foreword by Natan Sharanksy.
