Invisible in a Bright Light Audiobook

Invisible in a Bright Light

Author: Sally Gardner Narrator: Rachel Atkins Release Date: November 2019

From I, Coriander to Invisible in a Bright Light, Sally Gardner's first middle grade novel in 14 years soars with the imagination of a master story-teller. A pitch perfect, haunting story about a crystal chandelier shaped like a galleon that splinters into a thousand pieces, a girl abandoned as a baby on the steps of an opera house and a dangerous game called the Reckoning. It is 1870: opening night at the Royal Opera House in a freezing city by the sea, where a huge crystal chandelier in the shape of a galleon sparkles magically with the light of 750 candles. Celeste, a theatre rat, wakes up in a costume basket from what she hopes is a bad dream, to find that everyone at the theatre where she works thinks she is someone else. When the chandelier falls, she is haunted by a strange girl who claims to know Celeste's past and why she must play a game called the Reckoning to try to save the people she loves. 'In the watery cave of dreams hang the sleepers suspended on boat hooks. 'What if I don't want to play your game?' Celeste says. He leans back in his chair. 'Then you join the first row of sleepers. It's your decision.' 'What is the game called?' she asks. 'What are the rules?' 'It is called the Reckoning and only I know the rules.' 'Then it isn't fair.' 'I never said it was. This is a game I always win,' he says. 'I will help you this much - and I am being too generous. The player - that is you - was abandoned as a baby on the steps of the great opera house in the city of C.''

Is it the end of the line for DCI Jane Tennison? When a body is found in one of London's poorest districts, the coroner's report identifies the victim as young, black and female, but impossibly anonymous. One thing is clear to Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison about this victim - that news of her murder will tear apart a city already cracking with racial tensions, hurling Scotland Yard and Tennison herself into a maelstrom of shocking accusations and sudden, wrenching violence. As London's brutal killer remains at large, Tennison is locked in a struggle to overcome her station house's brutal chauvinism and insidious politicking. And as the department's deeply rooted racism rears its head and threatens to overshadow every facet of her new investigation, the trail of her prime suspect is growing colder. Based on the award-winning TV series starring Helen Mirren, the complete and unabridged Prime Suspect trilogy is now available for the first time in audio.

Please, Let Me Go: The Horrific True Story of a Girl's Life In The Hands of Sex Traffickers Audiobook

Please, Let Me Go: The Horrific True Story of a Girl's Life In The Hands of Sex Traffickers

Author: Caitlin Spencer Narrator: Rachel Atkins Release Date: June 2019

From the age of 14, Caitlin was completely controlled, repeatedly raped, provided with alcohol, given drugs, sold and passed on to new gangs over and over again. The majority of her abusers were Pakistani men, who were blatant in their attacks upon her, often collecting her from school or home, to be taken to flats they owned, family homes, or hotels booked for the day, to be horrifically and systematically abused. At a time when the abuse ring realities of young white women in Rotherham and other major English cities are coming to light, Caitlin's story will appal readers - not just because of the degree of horrific attacks which were perpetrated upon her, but also because of the ways in which the authorities refused to act. Caitlin speaks openly about what she has suffered, and also shows just how unwilling many people are to face up to what is happening in our midst, for fear of being called racist. By bravely speaking out, she will, hopefully prove just how deep these problems are and just how the abusers get away with it in plain sight of the authorities.

Let It Go: My Extraordinary Story - From Refugee to Entrepreneur to Philanthropist Audiobook

Let It Go: My Extraordinary Story - From Refugee to Entrepreneur to Philanthropist

Author: Richard Askwith, Stephanie Shirley Narrator: Rachel Atkins Release Date: April 2019

A moving memoir from a woman who made a fortune in a man's world and then gave it all away...soon to be turned into a film In 1962, Stephanie 'Steve' Shirley created a software company when the concept of software barely existed. Freelance Programmers employed women to work on complex projects such as Concorde's black box recorder from the comfort of their own home. Shirley empowered a generation of women in technology, giving them unheard of freedom to choose their own hours and manage their own workloads. The business thrived and Shirley gradually transferred ownership to her staff, creating 70 millionaires in the process. Let It Go explores Shirley's trail blazing career as an entrepreneur but it also charts her incredible personal story - her dramatic arrival in England as an unaccompanied Kindertransport refugee during World War Two and the tragic loss of her only child who suffered severely from Autism. Today, Dame Stephanie Shirley is one of Britain's leading philanthropists, devoting most of her time, energy and wealth to charities that are close to her heart. In Let It Go, Shirley tells her inspirational story and explains why giving her wealth away - letting it go - has brought her infinitely more happiness and fulfilment than acquiring it in the first place. Co-written with Richard Askwith, the former Executive Editor of The Independent and the award-winning author of seven books in his own name, including biographies of Emil Zátopek and Lata Brandisová. 'An extraordinary tale of creativity and resilience' - Guardian 'This engrossing story of an extraordinary life is filled with lessons in what it means to be human' - Financial Times

Written From the Heart Audiobook

Written From the Heart

Author: Trisha Ashley Narrator: Rachel Atkins Release Date: February 2019

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Written From the Heart by Trisha Ashley, read by Rachel Atkins. -- Previously published in 2008 as 'Happy Endings' -- The witty, weird and wonderful abound in this early romantic comedy by Sunday Times bestselling author Trisha Ashley. Tina Devino makes more money teaching people to write than writing herself. A middling romance novelist who dreams of penning a bestseller, she's increasingly forced to compete with younger, blonder debut authors for her publisher and agent's attention. Feeling forgotten, Tina realises the only way up is to take her career and destiny in hand and build her own happy ending; which is perfect because, for a romance writer, Tina isn't the most traditional of women... Although she does see her long term partner lover friend, Sergei, once a week which is 'quite enough, thank you very much'. But her uncomplicated love life might soon need some unravelling when a mysterious Tube Man, unwelcome ex-husband and a shadowy figure in a butterfly mask waltz into the picture. Only Tina can work through the drama and claim the life she's always wanted... but will she succeed? Hilariously warm, quirky and feel-good, Trisha Ashley's writing is perfect for fans of romantic comedies by Milly Johnson and Jill Mansell.
