A Prayer for Orion: A Son’s Addiction and a Mother’s Love Audiobook

A Prayer for Orion: A Son’s Addiction and a Mother’s Love

Author: Katherine James Narrator: Pam Ward Release Date: April 2020

It’s always somebody else’s kid―until it’s yours. When Katherine James and her husband found out their son was using heroin, their responses ran the gamut: disbelief, anger, helplessness, guilt. As they struggled to come to grips with their son’s addiction and decide how best to help him, their home became a refuge for an unlikely assortment of their son’s friends, each with their own story, drawn by the simple love and acceptance they found there―“the Lost Boys,” James calls them. In this sensitive, vulnerable memoir, award-winning novelist James turns her lush prose to a new purpose: to tell her family’s story through the twists and turns of her son’s addiction, overdose, and slow recovery. The result is not just a look at the phenomenon of drug abuse in suburban America, but also a meditation on the particular anguish of loving a wayward child and clinging to a desperate trust in God’s providence through it all.

At twenty-seven, having fled an abusive marriage with little more than her kids and the clothes on her back, Ivy Peterman figures she has nowhere to go but up.

Suddenly Ivy is facing the fight of her life—one that forces her to face her deepest fears as a woman and a mother. This time, however, she's got a sisterhood behind her: companions as complex, strong, and lasting as the quilts they stitch. "Stitched into the heartwarming second installment of Bostwick's contemporary New England quilters series is an unbreakable thread of friendship and faith."—Publishers Weekly

A Thread so Thin Audiobook

A Thread so Thin

Author: Marie Bostwick Narrator: Julia Whelan, Pam Ward Release Date: November 2010

New York Times bestselling author Marie Bostwick crafts a timeless tale of friendship, love, and the choices we must make in their name. While New Bern, Connecticut, lies under a blanket of snow, Cobbled Court Quilts remains a cozy haven for its owner, Evelyn Dixon, and her friends. Evelyn relishes winter's slower pace—besides, internet sales are hopping, thanks to her son Garrett's efforts. In addition to helping out at the shop, Garrett has also been patiently waiting for his girlfriend, Liza, to finish art school in New York City. But as much as Evelyn loves Liza, she wonders if it's a good idea for her son to be so serious so soon with a young woman who's just getting ready to spread her wings. Liza's wondering the same thing, especially after Garrett rolls out the red carpet for a super-romantic New Year's Eve—complete with a marriage proposal. Garrett's the closest thing to perfect she's ever known, but what about her own imperfections? The only happy marriage Liza has ever seen is her aunt Abigail's, and it took her decades to tie the knot. Soon Liza is not only struggling with her own fears but with the mixed reactions of her friends and family. And when she finds herself torn between a rare career opportunity and her love for Garrett, Liza must grasp at the thinnest of threads and pray it holds. Praise for A Single Thread: "Bostwick makes a seamless transition from historical fiction to the contemporary scene in this buoyant novel…Bostwick's polished style and command of plot make this story of bonding and sisterhood a tantalizing book club contender."—Publishers Weekly

Across God's Frontiers: Catholic Sisters in the American West, 1850-1920 Audiobook

Across God's Frontiers: Catholic Sisters in the American West, 1850-1920

Author: Anne M. Butler Narrator: Pam Ward Release Date: September 2012

Roman Catholic sisters first traveled to the American West as providers of social services, education, and medical assistance. In Across God's Frontiers, Anne M. Butler traces the ways in which sisters challenged and reconfigured contemporary ideas about women, work, religion, and the West; moreover, she demonstrates how religious life became a vehicle for increasing women's agency and power. Moving to the West introduced significant changes for these women, including public employment and unconventional monastic lives. As nuns and sisters adjusted to new circumstances and immersed themselves in rugged environments, the West shaped them; and through their labors and charities, they in turn shaped the West. These female religious pioneers built institutions, brokered relationships between indigenous peoples and encroaching settlers, and undertook varied occupations, often without organized funding or direct support from the church hierarchy. A comprehensive history of Roman Catholic nuns and sisters in the American West, Across God's Frontiers reveals these women as dynamic and creative architects of civic and religious institutions in western communities. "As Butler explains the interaction between the American West and the Catholic nuns missioned there, she produces a richly textured study complemented by prodigious research and elegant writing. More than a synthesis of secondary literature, Butler's book renders a gracefully woven interpretation of the entire region."-Carol K. Coburn, Avila University
