'The Mothers has stayed with me since I first read it, the words and the intimacy of the prose seeping into my pores' Roxanne Gay It's the last season of high school life for Nadia Turner, a rebellious, grief-stricken, seventeen-year-old beauty. Mourning her own mother's recent suicide, she takes up with the local pastor's son. Luke Sheppard is twenty-one, a former football star whose injury has reduced him to waiting tables at a diner. They are young; it's not serious. But the pregnancy that results from this teen romance - and the subsequent cover-up - will have an impact that goes far beyond their youth. As Nadia hides her secret from everyone, including Aubrey, her God-fearing best friend, the years move quickly. Soon, Nadia, Luke and Aubrey are full-fledged adults and still living in debt to the choices they made that one seaside summer, caught in a love triangle they must carefully manoeuvre and dogged by the constant, nagging question: what if they had chosen differently? In entrancing, lyrical prose, The Mothers asks whether a 'what if' can be more powerful than an experience itself.

In June of 2014, Terry Thornhill was stricken with one of the most deadly forms of cancer — metastatic breast cancer.  She was instantly told there were no viable treatments and the disease is fast-moving. She was warned to prepare her family as she would not last through the coming holiday season. With the valor of the most brave warriors, Terry began an all-out war with this evil killer. She did not give up, never surrendered.  After three years the doctors said, once again, only months to live. Get the family prepared, it is not going to be pretty. CBD Isolate joined the war that day! For the next year, the doctor continued to be confused and could not explain why she was still living and feeling so well. Blood tests were good and he had no explanation. In fact, he quickly left the room when pressed for an answer. His only comment was, “Just keep doing what you are doing.” The CBD treatments were working. She was happy and enjoying life. It began to appear it would be a long life when the unthinkable entered the fray! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Thomas W. Thornhill.

Color Blind: The Forgotten Team That Broke Base...

During the Great Depression, out in drought stricken North Dakota, one of the most improbable teams in the history of baseball was put together by one of the sport's most unlikely champions. In Bismarck, a decade before Jackie Robinson broke into the Major Leagues, car dealer Neil Churchill signed the best players he could find, regardless of race, and fielded an integrated squad that took on all comers in spectacular fashion. Color Blind, from award-winning journalist Tom Dunkel, tells this remarkable, largely forgotten story. When baseball swept America in the years after the Civil War, independent, semi-pro, and municipal leagues sprouted up everywhere. Color Blind immerses the reader in the wild and wonderful world of independent baseball, with its tough competition and its novelty - from all-brother teams and a prison team (who only played home games, naturally) to one from a religious commune that sported Old Testament beards. Dunkel traces the rise of the Bismarck squad, and follows them through their ups and downs, focusing on the 1935 season, and the first National Semi-Pro Tournament in Wichita, Kansas. This is an entertaining, must-listen audiobook for anyone interested in the history of baseball. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ben Bartolone.

 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “Bittersweet, sexy, morally fraught.” (The New York Times Book Review)"Luminous… engrossing and poignant, this is one not to miss." (People, Pick of the Week) "Fantastic… a book that feels alive on the page." (The Washington Post)The beloved New York Times best-selling novel about young love and a big secret in a small community, from the author of The Vanishing Half. Set within a contemporary Black community in Southern California, Brit Bennett's mesmerizing first novel is an emotionally perceptive story about community, love, and ambition. It begins with a secret. "All good secrets have a taste before you tell them, and if we'd taken a moment to swish this one around our mouths, we might have noticed the sourness of an unripe secret, plucked too soon, stolen and passed around before its season." It is the last season of high school life for Nadia Turner, a rebellious, grief-stricken, 17-year-old beauty. Mourning her own mother's recent suicide, she takes up with the local pastor's son. Luke Sheppard is 21, a former football star whose injury has reduced him to waiting tables at a diner.

How far will he go to save his daughter? How far will he go to get revenge? It's 2053, and runaway climate change has brought civilization to the brink of collapse. Billions are threatened with starvation, and mankind is slowly moving north in a world stricken by war, drought and superstorms - easy prey for the pandemics that sweep across the globe.

His four-year-old daughter was snatched from his garden when he should have been watching.

Amidst the worst European heatwave on record, a refugee crisis and the coming hurricane season, who cares about one more missing child?

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind: Creating Curren...

William Kamkwamba was born in Malawi, a country where magic ruled and modern science was mystery. It was also a land withered by drought and hunger, and a place where hope and opportunity were hard to find. Enchanted by the workings of electricity as a boy, William had a goal to study science in Malawi's top boarding schools. But in 2002, his country was stricken with a famine that left his family's farm devastated and his parents destitute. Unable to pay the 80-dollar-a-year tuition for his education, William was forced to drop out and help his family forage for food as thousands across the country starved and died. Yet William refused to let go of his dreams. With nothing more than a fistful of cornmeal in his stomach, a small pile of once-forgotten science textbooks, and an armory of curiosity and determination, he embarked on a daring plan to bring his family a set of luxuries that only two percent of Malawians could afford and what the West considers a necessity--electricity and running water. Using scrap metal, tractor parts, and bicycle halves, William forged a crude yet operable windmill, an unlikely contraption and small miracle that eventually powered four lights, complete with homemade switches and a circuit breaker made from nails and wire. A second machine turned a water pump that could battle the drought and famine that loomed with every season. Soon, news of William's magetsi a mphepo--his "electric wind"--spread beyond the borders of his home, and the boy who was once called crazy became an inspiration to those around the world. Here is the remarkable story about human inventiveness and its power to overcome crippling adversity. The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind will inspire anyone who doubts the power of one individual's ability to change his community and better the lives of those around him. 1. Language: English.

From award-winning author Daniel Storey. 4th July, 1990. Turin, Italy. England are on the brink of reaching their first World Cup final in 24 years. Twenty-three-year old Paul Gascoigne has been one of the breakout stars of the tournament. His athleticism, speed of thought and incredible natural gifts have given England fans renewed faith in their perennially underachieving national side. Then, in the 99th minute of a tense semifinal against Germany, Gascoigne lunges into a mistimed tackle. The ref awards Gascoigne his second yellow card of the tournament, meaning that if England were to win, he would miss the final. Gascoigne turns away, tries to hold it together, but can’t. Floods of tears run down his face. We understand. We feel his pain and anguish. The legend of Gazza is born. Two years later, after an injury-stricken season at Spurs, he arrives at Lazio for a then record transfer fee. Expectations are sky high; he is welcomed as a footballing messiah by the Roman fans. But all is not what it seems. There are doubts over his fitness, doubts over how he will adjust to life in Italy, doubts over whether his obvious potential can finally be achieved. The three subsequent years in Italy, shot through with incredible highs and self-inflicted lows, show Gazza in all his complexity - an immense natural talent flawed by a too-fragile personality. In Gazza in Italy, award-winning writer Daniel Storey brilliantly shines a light on an unexamined moment in Gazza’s career that encapsulates everything that we have come to associate with this most mercurial of talents: childish joy, public gaffes, wondrous skill and saddening self-destruction. Funny and harrowing in equal measure, this book allows us a better, more rounded understanding of one of our greatest sporting idols and of a tragically misunderstood human being. 1.
