For fans of A Thousand Splendid Suns comes a stirring novel set in Afghanistan about two women - an American aid worker and her local interpreter - who form an unexpected friendship despite their utterly different life experiences and the ever-increasing violence that surrounds them in Kabul. In 2001, Kabul is suddenly a place of possibility as people fling off years of repressive Taliban rule. This hopeful chaos brings together American aid worker Liv Stoellner and Farida Basra, an educated Pakistani woman still adjusting to her arranged marriage to Gul, the son of an Afghan strongman whose family spent years of exile in Pakistan before returning to Kabul. Both Liv and her husband take positions at an NGO that helps Afghan women recover from the Taliban years. They see the move as a reboot - Martin for his moribund academic career, Liv for their marriage. But for Farida and Gul, the move to Kabul is fraught, severing all ties with Farida’s family and her former world, and forcing Gul to confront a chapter in his life he’d desperately tried to erase. The two women, brought together by Farida’s work as an interpreter, form a nascent friendship based on their growing mutual love for Afghanistan, though Liv remains unaware that Farida is reporting information about the Americans’ activities to Gul’s family, who have ties to the black market. As the bond between Farida and Liv deepens, war-scarred Kabul acts in different ways upon them, as well as their husbands. Silent Hearts is an absorbing, complex portrayal of two very different but equally resilient women caught in the conflict of a war that will test them in ways they never imagined. 1.

The audiobook is more of a motivational program than instruction manual discussing the themes of minimalism according to a relatable context. It breaks down 50 ways of reducing clutter within your life, grouped according to four categories. These are: Mind-set or perspective Implementation Social media themes Peripheral considerations All these tools are meant to reduce and eventually eliminate clutter in your life, from a mental position to the implementation and everything in between governing the life of an individual. The audiobook encourages a lifestyle change from consumerism, which has become a silent plague on the present society, and shows ways of how to assimilate minimalism into your life until it becomes part of your habits. Minimalism is not encouraged as a goal but as a continuous process because cluttering is oriented the same way. Clutter is also a lifestyle that entails glut and neglect. This audiobook teaches how to be aware of your surroundings and keep vigilant of your mind and your residence. 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Bahl.

When her family relocated to rural China in 2003, Kay Bratt was thrust into a new world, one where boys were considered more valuable than girls and poverty and the one-child policy had created an epidemic of abandoned infants. As a volunteer at a local orphanage, Bratt witnessed conditions that were unfathomable to a middle-class mother of two from South Carolina. Based on Bratt’s diary of her four years at the orphanage, Silent Tears offers a searing account of young lives rendered disposable. In the face of an implacable system, Bratt found ways to work within (and around) the rules to make a better future for the children, whom she came to love. The book offers no easy answers. While often painful in its clear-sightedness, Silent Tears balances the sadness and struggles of life in the orphanage with moments of joy, optimism, faith, and victory. It is the story of hundreds of children - and of one woman who never planned on becoming a hero but became one anyway. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Shannon McManus.

I started making a list in my diary entitled Things I Have Been Silent About. Under it I wrote: Falling in Love in Tehran. Going to Parties in Tehran. Watching the Marx Brothers in Tehran. Reading Lolita in Tehran. I wrote about repressive laws and executions, about public and political abominations. Eventually I drifted into writing about private betrayals, implicating myself and those close to me in ways I had never imagined. From Things I Have Been Silent About...Azar Nafisi, author of the beloved international best-seller Reading Lolita in Tehran, now gives us a stunning personal story of growing up in Iran, memories of her life lived in thrall to a powerful and complex mother, against the background of a country´s political revolution. A girl´s pain over family secrets; a young woman´s discovery of the power of sensuality in literature; the price a family pays for freedom in a country beset by political upheaval.Nafisi´s intelligent and complicated mother, disappointed in her dreams of leading an important and romantic life, created mesmerizing fictions about herself, her family, and her past. But her daughter soon learned that these narratives of triumph hid as much as they revealed. Nafisi´s father escaped into narratives of another kind, enchanting his children with the classic tales like the Shahnamah, the Persian Book of Kings. When her father started seeing other women, young Azar began to keep his secrets from her mother. Nafisi´s complicity in these childhood dramas ultimately led her to resist remaining silent about other personal, as well as political, cultural, and social, injustices. Reaching back in time to reflect on other generations in the Nafisi family, Things I´ve Been Silent About is also a powerful historical portrait of a family that spans many periods of change leading up to the Islamic Revolution of 1978-79, which turned Azar Nafisi´s beloved Iran into a religious dictatorship. Writing of her... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Azar Nafisi. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/001686/bk_rand_001686_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
