If I Were You: A Novel Audiobook

If I Were You: A Novel

Author: Lynn Austin Narrator: Sarah Zimmerman Release Date: June 2020

From bestselling and eight-time Christy Award–winning author Lynn Austin comes a remarkable novel of sisterhood and self-discovery set against the backdrop of WWII. 1950. In the wake of the war, Audrey Clarkson leaves her manor house in England for a fresh start in America with her young son. As a widowed war bride, Audrey needs the support of her American in-laws, whom she has never met. But she arrives to find that her longtime friend Eve Dawson has been impersonating her for the past four years. Unraveling this deception will force Audrey and Eve’s secrets―and the complicated history of their friendship―to the surface. 1940. Eve and Audrey have been as different as two friends can be since the day they met at Wellingford Hall, where Eve’s mother served as a lady’s maid for Audrey’s mother. As young women, those differences become a polarizing force . . . until a greater threat―Nazi invasion―reunites them. With London facing relentless bombardment, Audrey and Eve join the fight as ambulance drivers, battling constant danger together. An American stationed in England brings dreams of a brighter future for Audrey, and the collapse of the class system gives Eve hope for a future with Audrey’s brother. But in the wake of devastating loss, both women must make life-altering decisions that will set in motion a web of lies and push them both to the breaking point long after the last bomb has fallen. This sweeping story transports readers to one of the most challenging eras of history to explore the deep, abiding power of faith and friendship to overcome more than we ever thought possible.

Motherhood: A Confession Audiobook

Motherhood: A Confession

Author: Natalie Carnes Narrator: Sarah Zimmerman Release Date: June 2020

What if Augustine's Confessions had been written not by a man, but by a mother? How might her tales of desire, temptation, and transformation differ from his? In this memoir, Natalie Carnes describes giving birth to a daughter and beginning a story of conversion strikingly unlike Augustine's-even as his journey becomes a surprising companion to her own. The challenges Carnes recounts will be familiar to many parents. She wonders what and how much she should ask her daughter to suffer in resisting racism, patriarchy, and injustice. She wrestles with an impulse to compel her child to flourish, and reflects on what this desire reveals about human freedom. She negotiates the conflicting demands of a religiously divided home, a working motherhood, and a variety of social expectations, and traces the hopes and anxieties such negotiations expose. The demands of motherhood continually open for her new modes of reflection about deep Christian commitments and age-old human questions. Addressing first her child and then her God, Carnes narrates how a child she once held within her body grows increasingly separate, provoking painful but generative change. Having given birth, she finds that she herself is reborn.

Broken Bread: How to Stop Using Food and Fear to Fill Spiritual Hunger Audiobook

Broken Bread: How to Stop Using Food and Fear to Fill Spiritual Hunger

Author: Tilly Dillehay Narrator: Sarah Zimmerman Release Date: June 2020

Food was no longer a means of division-no longer a curtain. The curtain had become a tablecloth, and the table was laid with Christ the son. Ever notice how much time Jesus spent around a table? If he wasn't sharing a meal with others, he was handing out free meals. If Jesus called himself the 'bread of life,' why is it that our relationship with food is so complicated? We love it. We hate it. We hate that we love it. Whether we're obsessing over what not to consume-carbs, sugar, alcohol-or what we will devour-fat free, dairy free, gluten free-food has become burdensome. Christian Book Award® winner Tilly Dillehay tackles the way we approach food. In Broken Bread, Dillehay identifies the four major food sins and the fears that drive them, and she offers a new way of thinking about food less in order to focus on more important matters. When we take the business of breaking bread together seriously, as the early church did, we not only use the table to build community, faith, and love, but the act of preparing and eating food becomes sweeter, more savory, and much more enjoyable.

See-Through Marriage: Experiencing The Freedom and Joy Of Being Fully Known and Fully Loved

Author: Ryan Frederick, Selena Frederick Narrator: Adam Verner, Sarah Zimmerman Release Date: May 2020

Marriage is all about sharing: sharing space, sharing joys and sorrows, sharing hopes and dreams. Yet we often hold back a part of ourselves because we fear that being wholly transparent-about our past, our desires, our failures, our faults-will bring judgment, rejection, or even just unwanted friction to our relationship. We are afraid to be fully known. As a result, we never experience being fully loved. Fierce Marriage authors Ryan and Selena Frederick think your marriage deserves better. In this new, paradigm-shifting book, they show you how to develop a see-through marriage, one that is marked by full transparency and confident vulnerability. Through personal stories, testimonies from other couples, and biblical truth, they make the case that living authentically in front of each other is the only way to experience love the way we were designed to. If you desire an honest, no-holding-back marriage where you are fully known, fully accepted, and fully loved, you need this book.

Murder at the Mena House

Author: Erica Ruth Neubauer Narrator: Sarah Zimmerman Release Date: April 2020

Well-heeled travelers from around the world flock to the Mena House Hotel--an exotic gem in the heart of Cairo where cocktails flow, adventure dispels the aftershocks of World War I, and deadly dangers wait in the shadows . . . Egypt, 1926. Fiercely independent American Jane Wunderly has made up her mind: she won't be swept off her feet on a trip abroad. Despite her Aunt Millie's best efforts at meddling with her love life, the young widow would rather gaze at the Great Pyramids of Giza than into the eyes of a dashing stranger. Yet Jane's plans to remain cool and indifferent become ancient history in the company of Mr. Redvers, a roguish banker she can't quite figure out . . . While the Mena House has its share of charming guests, Anna Stainton isn't one of them. The beautiful socialite makes it clear that she won't share the spotlight with anyone--especially Jane. But Jane soon becomes the center of attention when she's the one standing over her unintentional rival's dead body. Now, with her innocence at stake in a foreign country, Jane must determine who can be trusted, and who had motive to commit a brutal murder. Between Aunt Millie's unusual new acquaintances, a smarmy playboy with an off-putting smile, and the enigmatic Mr. Redvers, someone has too many secrets. Can Jane excavate the horrible truth before her future falls to ruin in Cairo . . . and the body count rises like the desert heat? "With deft characterizations, an engaging plot, and the most compelling heroine I've found since Amelia Peabody, Erica Ruth Neubauer's Murder at Mena House is the best book you'll read this year.'
