The Garden of Forgotten Wishes: The heartwarming and uplifting new rom-com from the Sunday Times bes Audiobook

The Garden of Forgotten Wishes: The heartwarming and uplifting new rom-com from the Sunday Times bes

Author: Trisha Ashley Narrator: Melissa Vaughan Release Date: July 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. The brilliant new novel from Top Five Sunday Times bestselling author Trisha Ashley All Marnie wants is somewhere to call home. Mourning lost years spent in a marriage that has finally come to an end, she needs a fresh start and time to heal. Things she hopes to find in the rural west Lancashire village her mother always told her about. With nothing but her two green thumbs, Marnie takes a job as a gardener, which comes with a little cottage to make her own. The garden is beautiful – filled with roses, lavender and honeysuckle – and only a little rough around the edges. Which is more than can be said for her next-door-neighbour, Ned Mars. Marnie remembers Ned from her school days but he’s far from the untroubled man she once knew. A recent relationship has left him with a heart as bruised as her own. Can a summer spent gardening help them heal and recapture the forgotten dreams they’ve let get away? Praise for Trisha Ashley: 'One of the best writers around!' Katie Fforde 'Full of down-to-earth humour' Sophie Kinsella 'A warm-hearted and comforting read. Trisha at her best.' Carole Matthews © Trisha Ashley 2020 (P) Penguin Audio 2020

How to Die: A Book about Being Alive Audiobook

How to Die: A Book about Being Alive

Author: Ray Robertson Narrator: Graham Rowat Release Date: July 2020

In How to Die: A Book About Being Alive, Ray Robertson meets Montaigne's challenge, arguing with characteristic candour and wit that if we gain a clearer understanding of death, we'll also better understand life. Contending that human beings tend to prefer illusion to reality-and so readily flock to the consoling myths of philosophy, religion, and society-Robertson echoes Publius Syrus, the first-century Roman who claimed, "They live ill who expect to live always." An absorbing excursion through some of Western literature's most compelling works on the subject of mortality, How to Die: A Book About Being Alive is an anecdotally-laden appeal for cultivating an honest relationship with death in the belief that, if we do so, we'll know more about what gives meaning to our lives. Pondering death isn't morbid or frivolous, Robertson argues-not unless we believe that asking what makes for a meaningful life is as well.

When he dies, he can't protect her, and she is cast back into slavery. But she can't forget her father's promise. As she grieves for him, she yearns for freedom. Emily Jarvie, daughter of a wealthy planter, is content with slavery-until she inherits a slave cousin in Caro. Her conscience goads her into an act of charity. She gives Caro a shawl. She is shocked-and transformed-when Caro has the audacity to ask her for a book instead. Unlikely cousins, unlikely friends, Emily and Caro become unlikely allies as Caro glimpses a path to freedom and Emily begins to question slavery itself. As South Carolina hurtles toward secession, will their bond destroy their lives-or set them both free?

Author: Jen Waite Narrator: Jen Waite Release Date: July 2020

By the bestselling author of A Beautiful, Terrible Thing, a haunting thriller about a mother and daughter who must draw strength from each other when they find themselves trapped in a cabin with a stranger who wants to either control them--or kill them. FOURTEEN YEARS BEFORE THE CABIN: Twenty-something Anne meets the man of her dreams right out of college, but after they get married, Anne notices that her husband begins acting differently. Why is Ethan suddenly so moody? And will their marriage endure? A WEEK BEFORE THE CABIN: Ten years later, Anne and her twelve-year-old daughter, Thea, are safely living in Vermont. Anne is a successful therapist, Thea has friends at her new school, and they receive an endless stream of love, support, and baked goods from Anne's sweet mom, Rose. When Thea takes to brooding and showing classic signs of teen angst, a trip for the three women to the White Mountains of New Hampshire seems like the perfect chance to bond. THE CABIN: A man follows the three women on a hike at a nature reserve and drags them at gunpoint to an abandoned cabin in the woods. And just like that their peaceful weekend away turns into a fight for survival. It isn't clear what this man wants from these women or how he is connected to them if at all, but it is increasingly clear that they won't all get out of the cabin alive. SURVIVAL INSTINCTS is a captivating and terrifying novel that brings to life one of the scariest truths of all--that people's inner monsters come in various forms, some more recognizable than others, and that we are all one random encounter away from tragedy.

The Sandpit Audiobook

The Sandpit

Author: Nicholas Shakespeare Narrator: David Bark-Jones Release Date: July 2020

Brought to you by Penguin. 'A remarkable contemporary thriller – with shades of Graham Greene and Le Carré about it – but also a profound and compelling investigation of a hugely complex human predicament. Brilliantly observed, captivatingly written, grippingly narrated – a triumph' William Boyd When John Dyer returns to Oxford from Brazil with his young son, he doesn't expect to find them both in danger. Every day is the same. He drops Leandro at his smart prep school and walks to the library to research his new book. His time living on the edge as a foreign correspondent in Rio is over. But the rainy streets of this English city turn out to be just as treacherous as those he used to walk in the favelas. Leandro’s schoolmates are the children of influential people, among them an international banker, a Russian oligarch, an American CIA operative and a British spook. As they congregate round the sports field for the weekly football matches, the network of alliances and covert interests that spreads between these power brokers soon becomes clear to Dyer. But it is a chance conversation with an Iranian nuclear scientist, Rustum Marvar, father of a friend of Leandro, that sets him onto a truly precarious path. When Marvar and his son disappear, several sinister factions seem acutely interested in Marvar’s groundbreaking research at the Clarendon Lab, and what he might have told Dyer about it, given Dyer was the last person to see Marvar alive. © Nicholas Shakespeare 2020 (P) Penguin Audio 2020

Author: David Rosenfelt Narrator: Grover Gardner Release Date: July 2020

'Narrator Grover Gardner returns to breathe life into listeners' favorite dog-loving lawyer...In his vivid portrayal of the wisecracking Andy, Gardner creates a sense of a cheerful reunion with the lawyer for longtime listeners and a warm greeting for newcomers.' -- AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award winner In David Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter mystery, Muzzled, Andy and his beloved golden retriever, Tara, are back on the case as a favor to a friend. Andy Carpenter is a lawyer who would rather not practice law. He'd rather spend his time working with the Tara Foundation, his dog rescue organization, and being with his family and his two dogs, Tara and Sebastian. But when a friend asks him for a favor that involves both dogs and his lawyerly expertise, he can't say no. Andy's friend Beth has found a stray that seems to have belonged to a murder victim—in fact, the man and two of his colleagues died in an explosion a few weeks ago. But when the murdered man contacts Beth, asking for his dog back, Andy knows there must be more to the story. The man claims his life is in danger, and that's why he disappeared. As much as Andy doesn't want to get involved—anything to avoid a new case—he can't help but come to the rescue of a man who'd risk everything, even his life, to reunite with his dog. Once again, David Rosenfelt delivers suspense and laughter in equal measure in another engaging mystery from 'one of the most unforgettable voices in the genre.'
