The fictional thought-diary of a rape victim forced to marry her attacker, God Makes the Flowers Silent is a heartbreaking, horrifying, and justly vindictive short story. It follows a young woman through years of brutality as she discovers the deadly power of her meek and quiet position in a world without compassion, where a man may take whatever he wishes without fear of consequence.

Before the railroad´s thin lines of steel bit their way up through the wilderness, Athabasca Landing was the picturesque threshold over which one must step who would enter into the mystery and adventure of the great white North. It is still Iskwatam - the ´´door´´ which opens to the lower reaches of the Athabasca, the Slave, and the Mackenzie. It is somewhat difficult to find on the map, yet it is there, because its history is written in more than 140 years of romance and tragedy and adventure in the lives of men, and is not easily forgotten. Over the old trail it was about 150 miles north of Edmonton. The railroad has brought it nearer to that base of civilization, but beyond it the wilderness still howls as it has howled for a thousand years, and the waters of a continent flow north and into the Arctic Ocean. It is possible that the beautiful dream of the real-estate dealers may come true, for the most avid of all the sportsmen of the earth, the money-hunters, have come up on the bumpy railroad that sometimes lights its sleeping cars with lanterns, and with them have come typewriters, and stenographers, and the art of printing advertisements, and the Golden Rule of those who sell handfuls of earth to hopeful purchasers thousands of miles away - ´´Do others as they would do you.´´ And with it, too, has come the legitimate business of barter and trade, with eyes on all that treasure of the North which lies between the Grand Rapids of the Athabasca and the edge of the polar sea. 1.

Since the death of her husband, Alicia Russell has struggled to take care of her 2 young sons alone. Now fiercely independent, she is determined to never again depend on another person. But when a sudden storm threatens to ruin a family camping trip, Alicia finds it hard to say no to a stranger offering a night´s refuge - especially when the man playing hero offers much more than shelter from the storm. Handsome, sensual, and slightly mysterious, Pierce Reynolds showers much-needed attention on Alicia´s sons - and reminds her, after so many years of solitude, how it feels to be desired. But even as he tempts her to explore her newly reawakened longings, he holds her at arm´s length, his only explanation a silent refusal to share the secrets of his heart.

Dara Dietz begins her life story with a question: ´´How does one go from being a victim to a victor?´´ As a very young child, then through adolescence, she found herself trapped in a family environment as well as in a social religious community where she was neglected, betrayed, and molested. She easily could have lost her way. She could have become an angry person, blaming others for all her misfortune and life circumstance. It would be easy to understand her emotion. Yet, her present life is one of counting her blessings and helping others heal naturally. What changed the direction of Dara´s life journey? She chose to believe and travel with the power of love, God´s love - a love that at first was not always easy to understand, trust, or accept. As her story reveals, it was Divinely life-transforming when she welcomed this unconditional love into her heart. Dara´s life lessons are about choices and how great trials can be great teachers; how the biggest hurts can be the biggest gifts. It is one´s choice how to learn the lesson. Her story illustrates how her spiritual courage enabled her to make choices that allowed for acceptance, forgiveness, and to be in the flow of Whatever Good May Come. This inspiring audiobook is a must-listen for those who have been in or are now experiencing a situation and feelings where all hope may seem lost. It is an audiobook for people who love such individuals. 1. Language: English. Narrator: April M Barrow. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/027818/bk_acx0_027818_sample.mp3.

Once Leota´s garden was a place of beauty - where flowers bloomed and hope thrived. It was her refuge from the deep wounds inflicted by a devastating war, her sanctuary where she knelt before a loving God and prayed for the children who couldn´t understand her silent sacrifices. At 83, Leota is alone; her beloved garden is in ruins. All her efforts to reconcile with her adult children have been fruitless. She voices her despair to a loving Father, her only friend. And God brings a wind of change through unlikely means: one, a college student who thinks he has all the answers; the other, the granddaughter Leota never hoped to know. But can the devastation wrought by keeping painful family secrets be repaired before she runs out of time? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Melissa Hurst.
