Lilibet: The Girl Who Would be Queen: A gorgeously illustrated gift book celebrating Her Majesty's p Audiobook

Lilibet: The Girl Who Would be Queen: A gorgeously illustrated gift book celebrating Her Majesty's p

Author: A.N. Wilson Narrator: Helen Lloyd Release Date: May 2022

'superb... captures our Queen better than any biography' - Sunday Telegraph The moments in life of 'knowing'. On Bognor Beach, with Grandpa England, she had 'known' that he, and Papa, and she, would carry something on, something given, something bigger than themselves. Lilibet: a carefree child, a lover of horses and dogs, devoted to her family. And the girl who would be Queen. A.N. Wilson, one of England's most beloved writers, imagines the Queen on the eve of her platinum jubilee. We watch as she discovers, at the tender age of ten, that she is heir to the throne. We witness her meet the dashing Prince Phillip of Greece, who she loved steadfastly from the age of fifteen, and see their friendship blossom into passionate love. Above all, we learn of her astonishing sense of vocation and public duty, which grew during the dark years of WWII and her father's subsequent years of ill health. By turns funny, tender and tragic, Lilibet: The Girl Who Would be Queen honours our beloved monarch and her illustrious reign. Praise for A.N. Wilson's The King and the Christmas Tree: 'An unlikely hero has a master storyteller to tell his tale. The King and the Christmas Tree is a poignant Christmas treat' - Lucy Worsley 'Reads like a thriller; a tale of human courage and resistance' - Lady Antonia Fraser 'I loved this book, not read without shedding a tear, reminding us that true democracy goes hand-in-hand with true kingship' - Roy Strong

Always Remember Your Name: 'Heartbreaking and utterly uplifting' Heather Morris, author of The Tatto

Author: Andra Bucci, Tatiana Bucci Narrator: Helen Lloyd Release Date: January 2022

A powerful and intensely moving true-life account from two sisters who were among the very few children to survive Auschwitz. On 28 March 1944, Italian sisters Tati (six) and Andra (four) were roused from their sleep and taken to Auschwitz, to the infamous Kinder Block presided over by Josef Mengele, the Angel of Death. By the time Auschwitz was liberated, 230,000 children had been murdered, and the sisters were among only 70 child survivors. Throughout their ordeal in the camp and the liberation of Auschwitz, their long journey from Poland to Czechoslovakia and finally to Lingfield House in Britain, they hung on to their promise to their mother to 'always remember your name'. They never forgot they were Tati and Andra Bucci, and it was this connection to their heritage that brought them miraculously back to their parents, years later and many countries away. The sisters overcame their trauma to live long lives, bearing witness as survivors of the Holocaust. Always Remember Your Name is an unforgettable story of the power of sisterhood, and of how a mother's love triumphed over impossible odds.

‘An important contribution to our recent history’ ANDREW MARR ‘Absorbing and important’ JOAN BAKEWELL ‘One of my favourite reads of 2021’ GARETH RUSSELL Poignant and inspiring, Women in the War tells the first-hand stories of ten of the last surviving female members of Britain's 'Greatest Generation'.  Whether flying Spitfires to the frontline, aiding code breaking at Bletchley Park, plotting the Battle of the Atlantic or working with Churchill in the Cabinet War Rooms, each of these women made a crucial contribution to the conflict overseas and helped to buttress the home front. Here they recount their remarkable experiences during the Second World War, recalling how their formative years were shaped by danger and trauma, and how friendship and romance fortified their spirits. Drawing on the insight that comes with age, they contemplate how the conflict helped women prove their worth, transforming society and sparking the later battles for equal rights.  With a reporter’s eye for detail, Lucy Fisher artfully weaves together moving contemporary interviews with gripping wartime diaries and letters. This is a vivid oral history that will stay with you long after you've put it down.

Notes from a Summer Cottage: The Intimate Life of the Outside World Audiobook

Notes from a Summer Cottage: The Intimate Life of the Outside World

Author: Nina Burton Narrator: Helen Lloyd Release Date: July 2021

‘I went for a walk around the garden. A great tit warbled above a patch of coltsfoot. I felt a thousand discoveries awaited…' Notes from a Summer Cottage by Nina Burton is a beautifully written nature memoir about the time spent renovating her late mother’s cottage in the Swedish countryside, and all the species that she encountered her during her stay. Did you know that there are more ants altogether than the number of seconds that have passed since the Big Bang? And that in relation to their size, their anthill cities can be larger than London and New York? Or, that a bird’s migratory instinct is so strong that an injured stork once escaped captivity and was found six weeks later having walked 150 kilometres, following the migratory path of his flock on foot? What begins with a renovation of her late mother’s summer cottage swiftly turns into an exploration of nature, life and philosophy, in which Nina Burton reveals the inner lives and hitherto unknown habits of the animals with which she shares. Within the walls, the ceiling and the floor of the cottage and its surrounding garden, she encounters a host of animals—ants, honey bees, foxes, squirrels, blackbirds, badgers, pigeons, deer and many more—all of whom have made her house and garden their home, and all of whom cause Nina to reflect on their role within our world.

Your organization (and the world of work) are alive. For centuries we have behaved as though organizations were machines, treating people as parts of those machines. But your organization is a living, dynamic system, that thrives through relationships, natural growth and organic structures.  In 'Nature of Work: The new story of work for a living age', Paul Miller, CEO and Founder of Digital Workplace Group (DWG), and Shimrit Janes, DWG's Director of Knowledge, draw on patterns from forests and the natural world to illustrate a dynamic, vital and more beautiful world of work that our hearts and minds know is possible.  Through inspiring imagery and metaphors drawn from nature, Miller and Janes provide change-makers in companies and organizations of any size with the language and questions to evolve their workplaces from organizations to organisms. They explore 12 essential workplace elements, such as health, habitat, regeneration, intelligence, relationships and purpose, underpinned by real-life stories of organizations and people already on this journey to new ways of working.  As at 2019, there were 3.46 billion people working globally, representing 41% of the world's population. Any changes in work have a dramatic impact on all aspects of life. And not only do these changes affect working people, they ripple out to touch all those who receive services or products as customers too. Changes in the world of work have profound impacts on how we live on Earth, and the concept 'Nature of Work' equips us with the language to craft a new story of work for a living age.

MI9: A History of the Secret Service for Escape and Evasion in World War Two Audiobook

MI9: A History of the Secret Service for Escape and Evasion in World War Two

Author: Helen Fry Narrator: Helen Lloyd Release Date: February 2021

A thrilling history of MI9-the WWII organization that engineered the escape of Allied forces from behind enemy lines When Allied fighters were trapped behind enemy lines, one branch of military intelligence helped them escape: MI9. The organization set up clandestine routes that zigzagged across Nazi-occupied Europe, enabling soldiers and airmen to make their way home. Secret agents and resistance fighters risked their lives and those of their families to hide the men. Drawing on declassified files and eye-witness testimonies from across Europe and the United States, Helen Fry provides a significant reassessment of MI9's wartime role. Central to its success were figures such as Airey Neave, Jimmy Langley, Sam Derry, and Mary Lindell, who was one of only a few women parachuted into enemy territory for MI9. This astonishing account combines escape and evasion tales with the previously untold stories behind the establishment of MI9-and reveals how the organization saved thousands of lives.
