The Death and Life of Great American Cities (50th Anniversary Edition) Audiobook

The Death and Life of Great American Cities (50th Anniversary Edition)

Author: Jane Jacobs Narrator: Donna Rawlins Release Date: September 2011

Thirty years after its publication, The Death and Life of Great American Cities was described by The New York Times as "perhaps the most influential single work in the history of town planning....[It] can also be seen in a much larger context. It is first of all a work of literature; the descriptions of street life as a kind of ballet and the bitingly satiric account of traditional planning theory can still be read for pleasure even by those who long ago absorbed and appropriated the book's arguments." Jane Jacobs, an editor and writer on architecture in New York City in the early sixties, argued that urban diversity and vitality were being destroyed by powerful architects and city planners. Rigorous, sane, and delightfully epigrammatic, Jacobs's small masterpiece is a blueprint for the humanistic management of cities. It is sensible, knowledgeable, readable, indispensable. The author has written a new foreword for this Modern Library edition.

Be Still My Vampire Heart

Author: Kerrelyn Sparks Narrator: Donna Rawlins Release Date: March 2011

If it was still beating. Angus MacKay has been undead for almost five hundred years and it's not often something, or someone, surprises him. Until Emma Wallace.

But then he discovers that she's a vampire slayer, intent on killing the "monsters" who killed her parents. And it's Angus's job to stop her. The only good vampire is a dead vampire. It's been Emma's motto since she committed her life to the destruction of these things. Now Angus MacKay wants to convince her differently. Sure, he's a sexy Highland warrior who seems to have stepped off the cover of a romance novel, complete with brogue, kilt, and sword, but he's also one of them. And it's her job to kill him.

Lady in Waiting

Author: Susan Meissner Narrator: Donna Rawlins, Samantha Eggar Release Date: September 2010

Content in her comfortable marriage of twenty-two years, Jane Lindsay had never expected to watch her husband, rad, pack his belongings and walk out the door of their Manhattan home. But when it happens, she feels powerless to stop him and the course of events that follow Brad's departure. Jane finds an old ring in a box of relics from a British jumble sale and discovers a Latin inscription in the band along with just one recognizable word: Jane. Feeling an instant connection to the mysterious ring bearing her namesake, Jane begins a journey to learn more about the ring-and perhaps about herself. ~ In the sixteenth-century, Lucy Day becomes the dressmaker to Lady Jane Grey, an innocent young woman whose fate seems to be controlled by a dangerous political and religious climate, one threatening to deny her true love and pursuit of her own interests. As the stories of both Janes dovetail through the journey of one ring, it becomes clear that each woman has far more infl uence over her life than she once imagined. It all comes down to the choices each makes despite the realities they face.

The Kissing Game Audiobook

The Kissing Game

Author: Suzanne Brockmann Narrator: Donna Rawlins Release Date: March 2009

Allowing Simon Hunt to play her partner on her latest assignment probably wasn’t Frankie Paresky’s best idea ever, but the private investigator found it just as hard as most women did to tell him no. When a chance to solve a long-ago mystery sparked a sizzling attraction between old friends, Frankie wavered between pleasure and panic. Could the best bad boy she’d ever known be the man she’d always love? Utterly seductive, irresistibly inventive, The Kissing Game celebrates a love as torrid as the Florida sun—and as passionate as a first kiss. “Donna Rawlins’ sultry, smoothly paced portrayal of Frankie is perfect down to the last ‘y’all.’ Rawlins is equally adroit in her portrayal of the supporting characters, including sexy Simon. Overall, Rawlins’ delivery is slow and her performance well acted.”--AudioFile

The Letters Audiobook

The Letters

Author: Luanne Rice Narrator: Bruce Turk, Donna Rawlins, Joseph Monninger Release Date: September 2008

Is there any mystery greater than those we love the most? In this remarkable collaboration, New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice and Joseph Monninger combine their unique talents to create a powerfully moving novel of an estranged husband and wife through a series of searching, intimate letters. By way of a correspondence so achingly real youll forget its fiction, they trace the history of a love affair and of a family before, and after, the moment that changed the course of two peoples journey forever. Sam and Hadley West are both trying in their own ways to survive after the unthinkable loss of their only son in Alaska. For Sam, a sports journalist, acceptance means an arduous trek by dogsled across the bleak and beautiful arctic wilderness to find the place where Paul died. For Hadley, it means renting a benignly haunted, salt-soaked cottage off the Maine coast where she begins to paint again. Now, at opposite ends of the country, waiting for their divorce to be finalized, they begin to exchange letters by post, missives filled with longing and truths theyve never before voiced, as they recall their marriage, its magic moments and its challenges, and begin to rediscover the reasons they fell in love in the first place. As Sam risks his life to reach the remote crash site, Hadley begins an equally hazardous inner journey to a rendezvous with the mad grief of a mothers heart. At the place where all else is lost, they will meet again....From the Hardcover edition.

Taken by Storm

Author: Tami Hoag Narrator: Donna Rawlins Release Date: October 2007

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag comes this bittersweet romance classic about a woman who's rebuilt her life-and her heart-after the disappointments of the past, only to find her carefully laid plans shattered by a knock on the door.… As a trauma nurse, Julia McCarver is accustomed to dealing with life-and-death emergencies. But she is the one in shock when she answers the door and finds the past standing there in the person of S. T. "Storm" Dalton. Julia had painstakingly put her life together not just once but three times in the wake of his abrupt and devastating departures, and she has no intention of doing it a fourth time. Because that's what S.T. promises he will do-break her engagement to another man, her heart, and her future all over again. Except, of course, that's not what he calls his plan to win her back. He gives himself two weeks to convince Julia that he's changed, that she is still in love with him, and that-despite conventional wisdom-the fourth time lightning struck can be a charm.

Maneater: And Other True Stories of a Life in Infectious Diseases Audiobook

Maneater: And Other True Stories of a Life in Infectious Diseases

Author: Pamela Nagami M.D., Pamela Nagami, M.D. Narrator: Donna Rawlings, Donna Rawlins Release Date: March 2003

Maneater is a personal account by a specialist who approaches her work like a forensic scientist or a case-hardened private eye. Dr. Pamela Nagami is a leading authority on infectious diseases and her stories will shock, amaze, and warn readers. The patients in Maneater are ordinary Americans. When Danielle Jordan innocently ordered a salad for lunch in Puerta Vallarta she had no idea she had just become the "host" to an organism that six years later would grow into a worm and burrow into her brain. Charlie Blair caught chicken pox, but he wasn't a kid, he was an adult, and that common childhood disease can attack a man and ravage his body until he looks like a third-degree-burn victim. A small insect bite on Allan Roth's right foot made him a target for "flesh-eating strep." He shed his skin like a snake and a large area of tissue and skin was removed from his right thigh and lower abdomen. Maneater will take readers on rounds with Dr. Nagami, where they will learn, from a safe distance, what the diseases are, what it's like to be a medical detective, and how it feels to make the medical and ethical decisions that can mean the difference between life and death.
