You Should Have Known Audiobook

You Should Have Known

Author: Jean Hanff Korelitz Narrator: Christina Delaine Release Date: March 2014

Grace Reinhart Sachs is living the only life she ever wanted for herself, devoted to her husband, a pediatric oncologist at a major cancer hospital, their young son, Henry, and the patients she sees in her therapy practice. Grace is also the author of the forthcoming You Should Have Known, a book in which she castigates women for not valuing their intuition and calls upon them to pay attention to their first impressions of men. But weeks before the book is published, a chasm opens in her own life: a violent death, a missing husband, and, in the place of a man Grace thought she knew, only a chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster, and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself.

Women of Southie: Finding Resilience During Whitey Bulger's Infamous Reign Audiobook

Women of Southie: Finding Resilience During Whitey Bulger's Infamous Reign

Author: Phyllis Karas Narrator: Christina Delaine Release Date: April 2019

Women of Southie tells the story of six women who grew up in and, in most cases, still live in their beloved town of South Boston, a place most notably recognized as the home of organized crime boss James 'Whitey' Bulger. But while Bulger might have been ruling the town with an iron fist, as depicted by Johnny Depp in Black Mass, what the town ought to have been recognized for are the brave women who ruled their own lives and their families with equally strong but far more beneficial hands. Six of these women are depicted in this book, each of whom faced hurdles more frightening than mobsters. Death of loved ones, suicide, murder, addiction, abuse, and post-traumatic stress disorder are some of the demons they faced. Yet none of these women ever backed down from an important fight, each one emerging in this book as a shining light of what love and courage and an indomitable spirit can accomplish. The stories of these women, whose ages range from forty to sixty-seven, are filled with honest details, some heartbreaking but all ultimately courageous and inspirational. Talking always honestly, about their children, their men, their losses, and their successes, they are shining examples that, in today's world, it is the words of strong women that offer the antidote to loss and pain.

With Patience and Fortitude: A Memoir Audiobook

With Patience and Fortitude: A Memoir

Author: Christine Quinn Narrator: Christina Delaine Release Date: June 2013

Christine Quinn's improbable journey began long before she became New York City's second-most-powerful elected official. The granddaughter of Irish immigrants including a grandmother who escaped the sinking Titanic when most teenage girls in steerage perished Christine learned early in life that challenges are meant to be met and overcome, and that they are ever present but surmountable. Christine's seemingly idyllic childhood a time that was filled with every imaginable lesson from ballet and painting to swimming and horseback riding wasn't at all what it appeared to be. A cancer diagnosis left Christine's mother fighting for her life and harboring a single wish: to see her beloved little girl through grade school. She lived more years than she'd dared hope for, but her decade-long battle with breast cancer, kept largely secret, cast a deep shadow over young Christine's life. At sixteen, left without a mother, Christine began carving her own path. Inspired by her parents' example of service and drawing on favorite childhood books about pioneers like Marie Curie and Frederick Douglass Christine set her sights on work that would help make a difference in the world. Yet she bore secrets of her own that she would ultimately have to face, coming of age in a world where both women and gay people had no choice but to fight for their dreams. Over time she met those obstacles, both personal and professional, with more fortitude than patience. In a strikingly intimate and forthright memoir, Christine Quinn demonstrates that life's challenges can provide the fuel that drives us to be our better selves and, in turn, inspires us to reach out to those who need a helping hand.

Where the Jews Aren't: The Sad and Absurd Story of Birobidzhan, Russia's Jewish Autonomous Region Audiobook

Where the Jews Aren't: The Sad and Absurd Story of Birobidzhan, Russia's Jewish Autonomous Region

Author: Masha Gessen Narrator: Christina Delaine Release Date: May 2017

In 1929, the Soviet government set aside a sparsely populated area in the Soviet Far East for settlement by Jews. The place was called Birobidzhan. The idea of an autonomous Jewish region was championed by Jewish Communists, Yiddishists, and intellectuals, who envisioned a haven of post-oppression Jewish culture. By the mid-1930s tens of thousands of Soviet Jews, as well as about a thousand Jews from abroad, had moved there. The state-building ended quickly, in the late 1930s, with arrests and purges instigated by Stalin. But after the Second World War, Birobidzhan received another influx of Jews-those who had been dispossessed by the war. In the late 1940s a second wave of arrests and imprisonments swept through the area, traumatizing Birobidzhan's Jews into silence and effectively shutting down most of the Jewish cultural enterprises that had been created. Where the Jews Aren't is a haunting account of the dream of Birobidzhan-and how it became the cracked and crooked mirror in which we can see the true story of the Jews in twentieth-century Russia.

Where I Lost Her

Author: T. Greenwood Narrator: Christina Delaine Release Date: March 2016

Eight years ago, Tess and Jake were considered a power couple of the New York publishing world-happy, in love, planning a family. Failed fertility treatments and a heartbreaking attempt at adoption have fractured their marriage and left Tess edgy and adrift. A visit to friends in rural Vermont throws Tess's world into further chaos when she sees a young, half-dressed child in the middle of the road, who then runs into the woods like a frightened deer. The entire town begins searching for the little girl. But there are no sightings, no other witnesses, no reports of missing children. As local police and Jake point out, Tess's imagination has played her false before. And yet Tess is compelled to keep looking, not only to save the little girl she can't forget but to salvage her broken heart as well. Blending her trademark lyrical prose with a superbly crafted and suspenseful narrative, Where I Lost Her is a gripping, haunting novel from a remarkable storyteller.

Author: Carla Norton Narrator: Christina Delaine, Christine Delaine Release Date: June 2015

Reeve LeClaire is a college student, dammit, not Daryl Wayne Flint's victim. Not anymore-not when Reeve is finally recovering a life of her own after four years of captivity. Flint is safely locked up in Olshaker Psychiatric Hospital, where he belongs. He is walking the grounds of the forensic unit, performing his strange but apparently harmless rituals. It seems that he is still suffering the effects of the head injury he suffered in the car crash that freed Reeve seven years ago. Post-concussive syndrome, they call it. For all that Flint seems like a model patient, he has long been planning his next move. When the moment arrives, he gets clean away from the hospital before the alarm even sounds. And Reeve is shocked out of her new life by her worst nightmare: Her kidnapper has escaped. Less than 24 hours later, Flint kills someone from his past--and Reeve's blocked memories jolt back into consciousness. As much as she would like to forget him, she knows this criminal better than anyone else. When Flint evades capture, baffling authorities and leaving a bloody trail from the psychiatric lock-up to the forests of Washington state, Reeve suddenly realizes that she is the only one who can stop him. Reeve is an irresistibly brave and believable heroine in Carla Norton's heart-stopping new thriller, What Doesn't Kill Her, about a young woman who learns to fight back.

Trump Sky Alpha: A Novel Audiobook

Trump Sky Alpha: A Novel

Author: Mark Doten Narrator: Christina Delaine Release Date: February 2019

A novel on the political madness of our time and the Internet's deep workings, by the author of The Infernal. Twice a week, the president pilots his ultraluxury airship Trump Sky Alpha (seats start at $50,000), delivering, as he travels between D.C., New York City, and Mar-a-Lago, a streaming YouTube address to the nation, in which he trumpets his successes and blasts his enemies-until the day his words plunge the world into nuclear war. One year later, with 90 percent of the world's population destroyed, a journalist named Rachel has taken refuge in the Twin Cities Metro Containment Zone. Rachel goes on assignment to document the final throes of humor on the Internet in those moments before the end, hoping along the way to discover the final resting place of her wife and daughter. What she uncovers, hidden amid spiraling memes and Twitter jokes in a working archive of the Internet's remnants, are references to a little-known book that inspired a shadowy hacktivist group called the Aviary. Their role in the downfall of the Internet, and the enigmatic presence of a figure known only as Birdcrash, take on immense and terrifying dimensions as Rachel ventures further into the ruins of the Internet. Mark Doten, a satirist of unparalleled vision, brilliantly details how the Internet has infiltrated every aspect of our lives, laying the groundwork for the tumult of our current political moment, and, in the kaleidoscopic, queer, all-consuming, parallactic swirl of Trump Sky Alpha, for the future headed our way.
