With an eye on the taste of a child for concrete detail and no apologies for the embroidery of legend, each tale, in a style akin to fairy-tale, sets forth the unique qualities of a Genevieve, a Felix, a Dorothy, or Comgall-16 real saints brought unforgettably to our attention and admiration. 1.

Nearly everything important in 12-year-old Gabriella´s life that summer of 1957 can be traced to the river. Without friends, her mother mysteriously absent, and her father, the general, treating her as if she doesn´t exist, Gabriella turns to the river beside the Marine base where she lives in North Carolina. She´s determined to learn to swim so she can make the general proud by showing him she´s good at something. At the river Gabriella meets Hawkins, an African-American steward in the kitchen of her father´s quarters. Gabriella decides to trust Hawkins to show her a few swim techniques. He becomes her swim coach and a person she can talk with, even about the tragedy of the youth Emmett Till. Two years earlier, the fourteen-year-old Emmett was lynched and his body thrown into Mississippi´s Tallahatchie River. Despite brutal beatings, Emmett refused to say what his racist murderers wanted: that he wasn´t as good as them. At the river beach in North Carolina, Gabriella becomes close friends with Doyle, a teen and neighbor who plays Mississippi Delta Blues for her on his guitar. She tangles with another neighbor, Col. Perkins, a lurking presence with more than just a casual interest in Gabriella´s growing friendship with Hawkins. And she feels a tide in her heart pulling her across the river to an old mansion, a tide as strong as a mother´s love, even a deeply troubled mother who does not want to be found.If she can reach Mama, if she can show the general she´s good at something, Gabriella will have the only thing she´s ever wanted: her family together again. At the river Hawkins helps her find her strength. Emmett helps her find her heart. Yet as she swims toward young adulthood, it could all be lost. Emmett had been murdered for whistling at a white woman. Could her friendship with Hawkins endanger the tough Marine? It doesn´t seem possible. Until a sudden storm on the river changes Gabriella´s life - forever. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lindsey Gast. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/022763de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.

´´Iceberg, right ahead!´´ Only 160 minutes passed between the time a sailor on lookout duty uttered these chilling words and the moment when the mighty ocean liner Titanic totally disappeared into the cold, dark waters of the North Atlantic. This century-old tragedy, which took more than 1,500 lives, still captivates people in the 21st century. Seventy-three years separate the two major Titanic events - the 1912 sinking of the vessel and the dramatic 1985 discovery of the wreck by Robert Ballard. But additional stories about the victims, survivors, rescuers, reporters, investigators, and many others show the far-reaching effects this tragedy had on society. Award-winning author Stephanie Sammartino McPherson has collected numerous personal accounts of the event, including the knighted man who spent the rest of his life in seclusion because he was accused of dishonorable behavior in a lifeboat, the stewardess who survived two shipwrecks and a midocean collision, and the New York Times executive who sent multiple reporters to meet the rescue ship, thus earning a national reputation for his newspaper. She also links the Titanic tragedy to changes in regulations worldwide. After a Senate inquiry and a British trial attempted to assign blame for the disaster, new laws on ship safety were put in place. A group of nations also banded together to form an ice patrol, eventually leading to the formation of the US Coast Guard. Even the most avid Titanic fans will learn something new as McPherson brings the listener up to date on the politics and intrigue still surrounding the wreck - including what modern science can reveal about what really happened to the ship and who was at fault. Prepare to follow the never-ending story of the Titanic into its second century. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Intuitive.
