Chestnut Street by Maeve Binchy( Recording )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,008 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While she was writing columns for The Irish Times and her best-selling novels, Maeve Binchy also had in mind to write a book that revolved around one street with many characters coming and going. Every once in a while, she would write about one these people. She would then put it in a drawer. "For the future," she would say. The future is now. Just around the corner from St. Jarlath's Crescent (which readers will recognize from Minding Frankie) is Chestnut Street, where neighbors come and go. Behind their closed doors we encounter very different people with different life circumstances, occupations, and sensibilities. Written with the humor and understanding that are earmarks of Maeve Binchy's work, it is a pleasure to be part of this world with all of its joys and sorrows, to get to know the good and the bad, and ultimately to have our hearts warmed by her storytelling"--

Instead, she marries a man who will bring her nothing but disappointment and watches helplessly as her firstborn twins succumb to an illness a few pennies could have prevented. Hattie gives birth to nine more children whom she raises with grit and mettle and not an ounce of the tenderness they crave. She vows to prepare them for the calamitous difficulty they are sure to face in their later lives, to meet a world that will not love them, a world that will not be kind.

"Evelyn has been married to her husband for forty years-- forty years since he slipped off her first wedding ring and put his own in its place. Delphine has seen both sides of love-- the ecstatic, glorious highs of seduction, and the bitter, spiteful fury that descends when it's over. James, a paramedic who works the night shift, knows his wife's family thinks she could have done better; while Kate, partnered with Dan for a decade, has seen every kind of wedding-- beach weddings, backyard weddings, castle weddings-- and has vowed never, ever, to have one of her own. As these lives and marriages unfold in surprising ways, we meet Frances Gerety, a young advertising copywriter in 1947. Frances is working on the De Beers campaign and she needs a signature line, so, one night before bed, she scribbles a phrase on a scrap of paper: 'A Diamond Is Forever.' And that line changes everything"--Publisher's web page

Essentialism : the disciplined pursuit of less by Greg McKeown( Recording )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Way of the Essentialist isn't about getting more done in less time. It's about getting only the right things done. It is not a time management strategy or a productivity technique. It is a systematic discipline for discerning what is absolutely essential, then eliminating everything that is not, so as to make the highest possible contribution towards the things that really matter. Essentialism is a whole new way of doing everything. It's about doing less, but better, in every area of life

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Greg Gutfeld, host of Red Eye and cohost of The Five, lays out the battle plan for reclaiming the real American ideal of cool - building businesses, protecting freedom at home and abroad, taking responsibility for one's actions, and leaving other people alone to live as they darn well please. Gutfeld fights back against the culture of phonies, elitists, and creeps who want everyone's souls. It's not a book, it's a weapon, and one should be armed with it at all times

Pilgrim's wilderness : [a true story of faith and madness on the Alaska frontier] by Tom Kizzia( Recording )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Pilgrim's Wilderness, veteran Alaska journalist Tom Kizzia unfolds the remarkable, at times harrowing, story of a charismatic spinner of American myths who was not what he seemed, the townspeople caught in his thrall, and the family he brought to the brink of ruin. As Kizzia discovered, Papa Pilgrim was in fact the son of a rich Texas family with ties to Hoover's FBI and strange, oblique connections to the Kennedy assassination and the movie stars of Easy Rider. And as his fight with the government in Alaska grew more intense, the turmoil in his brood made it increasingly difficult to tell whether his children were messianic followers or hostages in desperate need of rescue. In this powerful piece of Americana, written with uncommon grace and high drama, Kizzia uses his unparalleled access to capture an era-defining clash between environmentalists and pioneers ignited by a mesmerizing sociopath who held a town and a family captive."--Container
