Who Will Run the Frog Hospital?: A Novel Audiobook

Who Will Run the Frog Hospital?: A Novel

Author: Lorrie Moore Narrator: Gabrielle De Cuir Release Date: June 2019

In this moving, poignant novel by the bestselling author of Birds of America, we share a grown woman's bittersweet nostalgia for the wildness of her youth. The summer Berie was fifteen, she and her best friend, Sils, had jobs at Storyland in upstate New York where Berie sold tickets to see the beautiful Sils portray Cinderella in a strapless evening gown. They spent their breaks smoking, joking, and gossiping. After work they followed their own reckless rules, teasing the fun out of small-town life, sleeping in the family station wagon, and drinking borrowed liquor from old mayonnaise jars. But no matter how wild, they always managed to escape any real danger-until the adoring Berie sees that Sils really does need her help-and then everything changes.

Author: Taylor Caldwell Narrator: Gabrielle De Cuir Release Date: June 2019

From a #1 New York Times bestselling author, a "magnificent" epic based on the early life of Genghis Khan (New York Herald Tribune) This sweeping saga captures life in the Far East during the Middle Ages and dramatizes the events that transformed a Mongol tribesman named Temujin into the man who would conquer Asia and be known to the world for centuries to come as Genghis Khan. Raised by an indomitable woman and educated by his outcast uncle, Temujin becomes a fearsome warrior who inspires loyalty in his friends and hatred in his enemies. But he is also blessed with a keen intelligence and the charisma of a natural-born leader. In an era marked by treachery and savage violence, these gifts lead Temujin to a relentless pursuit of power. From the Gobi Desert to Samarkand, Taylor Caldwell transports readers to a distant world and shines a brilliant light on one of history's most enigmatic figures. On her "huge historical canvas...blood spurts from the knife; beads of sweat stand out on straining flesh; lusts are consummated and revenges achieved" (New York Herald Tribune).

Three Sisters in Black: The Bizarre True Case of the Bathtub Tragedy Audiobook

Three Sisters in Black: The Bizarre True Case of the Bathtub Tragedy

Author: Norman Zierold Narrator: Gabrielle De Cuir Release Date: June 2019

In 1909, a bathtub drowning became one of the most famous and bizarre criminal cases in American history. On November 29, 1909, police were called to a ramshackle home in East Orange, New Jersey, where they found the emaciated body of twenty-four-year-old Oceana "Ocey" Snead facedown in the bathtub-dead of an apparent suicide by drowning. There was even a note left behind. But it would not take authorities long to discover that Ocey's death was no suicide. And Ocey's own mother and two aunts were far from the sorrowful caretakers they appeared to be. In fact, behind the veils of their strange black mourning clothes, they were monsters, having tormented Ocey almost since birth in a sick pattern of both physical and mental abuse, after a lifetime of which the women planned to cash in on poor Ocey's sad and inevitable death. An Edgar Award finalist, Three Sisters in Black is the true story of a gothic, gaslight nightmare that fascinated, shocked, and baffled the nation-and the disturbed women who almost got away with murder.

For a Long Time, Afraid of the Night Audiobook

For a Long Time, Afraid of the Night

Author: Yasmine Ghata Narrator: Gabrielle De Cuir Release Date: April 2019

In the middle of the night in early April 1994, Arsene, an eight-year old Rwandan boy, flees his village as shouts and gunshots draw near. Carrying only a battered suitcase of his father's, hastily packed with a few essential items by his grandmother-who along with the rest of his family and the entire village will be massacred that night-he runs into the wilderness and wanders alone and afraid through unspeakable horrors. Some years later, his story and that of a young writing teacher, Suzanne, converge. Arsene, as a teenager adopted by a Parisian couple and enrolled in a private school, is prompted by the teacher's assignment to bring in a cherished family object. He chooses the battered family suitcase, and his story unfolds, first in painful increments and then in a flood of confession he can only reveal by dictation. Suzanne in turn is reeling from the death of her father and loss of her own childhood home. The two find a deep, emotional connection that transcends race, history, and geography.

Awakening Audiobook

Awakening

Author: Bethany Adams Narrator: Gabrielle De Cuir, Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: April 2019

An unexpected duty For three hundred years, Princess Dria has avoided the drama of the royal court by training as a battle mage. When her father summons her back to court just as she begins to rise up the ranks, she's furious. Even worse, she must work with her estranged brother Ralan on a mission to Earth. But as soon as Dria arrives at Moranaia's new outpost, her brother drops the leadership of the entire place into her hands. Now she's in charge of fortifying a new outpost on a planet she's never even visited. An abhorrent task Prince Vek of the Unseelie has spent millennia as his father's enforcer, working in the shadows to eliminate evil, but after sparing his nephew Fen from the king's judgment, Vek must tread carefully. One false move, and he will lose the king's trust-and Fen's life. But when the king gives Vek a new, more sinister task, Fen becomes the least of his worries. The Moranaians have a new colony on Earth, and King Torek wants the energy source that's contained within. Vek must retrieve that power-even if he has to kill the Moranaian leader to get it. A threat unknown From the moment she catches Vek sneaking into the cavern, Dria knows the truth-the dark and mysterious prince is her soulbonded. But she's certain he's up to no good, and although she's drawn to him, there is no way she can trust him. His reputation, and that of the Unseelie in general, precedes him. Unfortunately, more than desire is awakening. As they dance around their budding attraction, Dria and Vek uncover a deathly illness lurking among the fae-and a sinister plot that will damage both their worlds.

Anna manages to unravel the mystery, but because of the profile, she finds stopping the criminal organization and freeing the kidnapped women will take years, during which time more women will be kidnapped and fewer will survive to be saved. Unless ... Anna is willing to disregard the laws that safeguard the innocent and that are protecting the criminals and very influential people the criminals' activities support. Actions that will open her to prosecution and life imprisonment if plots to retire her early and permanently don't succeed first.

Darkside Seattle: The Support Crew

Author: L. E. French Narrator: Gabrielle De Cuir, Nan Mcnamara, Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: January 2019

Decency, humanity, and humility don't live on the Darkside. Seattle's underbelly in a darker, grimmer future plays host to a collection of novellas, each exploring how people wind up in that forsaken hellhole-and what they're willing to do to prove they belong. Street Doc On the run for a crime he committed, Hideo has only the shirt on his back and memories of a beautiful wife, a great job, and an exclusive view from his bedroom. The once-respected surgeon has to learn to live on the streets of Darkside Seattle-a place no one sane wants to go and no one stuck there can leave. Hideo's skills can keep others alive, but he's never dodged bullets before. The future looks grim. Fixer Victoria Godhand, the unflinching chief negotiator for her father's megacorp, wants a lot of things. Respect tops the list. Ross Lynch, her father's handpicked successor and the company's COO, also wants a lot of things. Victoria tops the list. If she can't have what she wants, neither can he. Victoria would rather rot in jail-and it may come to that. Mechanic Isabella Acosta has lived in the barrio half of the Darkside her entire life-no cops, no laws, no way out. Respected for surviving so long, Isabella keeps her head down and doesn't make waves-until someone puts a gun to her nephew's head, that is. Now, she'll do anything to protect the boy she helped her brother raise-anything.

Body Suit Audiobook

Body Suit

Author: Suzanne Hagelin Narrator: Gabrielle De Cuir, Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: November 2018

Exiled to the mines of Mars ... Silvariah Frandelle, a brilliant and beautiful business woman, falls from wealth and success into exile and poverty, indentured-barely one step above slavery-as an off-world laborer to escape prison. Her last calculated risk as a free woman, paid for with years of service, becomes the key to surviving hostile environments. Space, gravity, and Mars wastelands were expected. Intrusive AIs, obscure experiments, and shadowy foes were not. Escaping with her life will require more than intuition, wits, or nerve, as the intrigue unravels from both ends, and she's forced to decide who to believe, and who to trust. Body Suit explores the development of personality and the shaping of character-human or otherwise-external pressures, competing ideals, and battles for control. A well-paced drama that builds tension to the last page and concludes with a harrowing climax.
