Mrs Jeffries and the Silent Knight: Emily Brightwell
Mrs. Jeffries and the Silent Knight: Emily Brightwell
Lady Emily Marlowe is beautiful, independent, and unspoiled. Deaf since childhood, she appreciates her family´s efforts to nurture her spirit, but the man they´ve chosen for her betrothal can never fulfill her. The only one Emily has ever desired is bold and reckless Lord Ashley Kendrick. Her childhood amour inspired her fantasies and vowed never to forget her - even as he left her for a new life in India and a new love. Seven years and countless dreams later, Ashley has returned a desolate widower to Bowden Abbey and, true to his promise, to Emily. Yet his heedless proposal of marriage has left her unexpectedly conflicted. Though the heat of passion still burns, Emily fears that it´s only a sense of duty - not love - that has brought him to bended knee. And what is she to make of those seven lost years clouded in secrets too dark for Ashley to share? For Emily, her greatest and only love now becomes one worth fighting for, one of startling revelations and second chances, and one, like a melody, too beautiful for words.... 1. Language: English.

When a body wrapped in a blue plastic tarp and tied up with twine is discovered by the bushes near a quiet suburban Tokyo neighborhood, Lieutenant Reiko Himekawa and her squad take the case. The victim was slaughtered brutally - his wounds are bizarre, and no one can figure out the ´´what´´ or the ´´why´´ of this crime. At age 29 Reiko Himekawa of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police´s Homicide Division is young to have been made lieutenant, particularly because she lacks any kind of political or family connections. Despite barriers created by age, gender, and lack of connections, she is mentally tough and oblivious to danger and has an impressive ability to solve crimes. Reiko makes a discovery that leads the police to uncover 11 other bodies, all wrapped in the same sort of plastic. Few of the bodies are identifiable, but the ones that are have no connection to each other. The only possible clue is a long-shot lead to a website spoken of only in whispers on the Internet, something on the dark web known as Strawberry Night. But while Reiko is hunting the killer, the killer is hunting her...and she may very well have been marked as the next victim. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Emily Woo Zeller.

Calvin Coolidge is one of the most underrated presidents America ever had. Rather than reckon with his own words and on his own terms, however, it has become easier to caricature and dismiss him. The real record Coolidge achieved reveals a far more successful administrator, a principled constitutionalist, a much better leader than usually recognized, and a methodically independent - even non-conventional - thinker. The power of his ideas and practical experience over a lifetime in politics, holding nearly every office from city council to the White House, exemplifies not merely a great example of public service but also a stirring call to higher citizenship from each of us. As the 2016 elections approach, America needs the benefit of his many insights, the guidance of his solid grasp of human nature, and the strength of his moral example. This audiobook is not only for candidates and those who already hold office in the public trust, but also for voters to examine every campaign, test its participants. It´s for those who want to see past the empty promises, campaign posturing, and good intentions so often masking the true from the false, the vapid from the substantive, and the opportunist from the statesman or woman. Calvin Coolidge, anything but ´´silent,´´ has much to teach, if we are ready to learn. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel L. Wright, Mary Jefford Wright, Emily Jefford.
