In its early years, Duluth was a gold mine for lumber barons. Men were employed as lumberjacks and worked like beasts, only to be tossed aside like used equipment when no longer needed. The grand forests were raped for their prime timber, the balance burned wastefully. The men were coarse and hard, but they had to be to survive. More than any other people that ever lived in our land, these old-time lumberjacks could truthfully say, ´´No man cared for my soul.´´ That is, until God sent three men to the great Northwoods of our country - Frank Higgins, John Sornberger, and Al Channer. These men blazed new trails of the Spirit and founded an empire for God. They reached a sector of humanity for which no spiritual work had ever been done before, storming the Northwoods with a consuming passion for Christ. And with that passion, they also brought a heart as big as all outdoors, a love for men that burned like a flame, and a desperate desire to see these men saved. 1. Language: English.

A beautiful society wife from St. Petersburg, determined to live life on her own terms, sacrifices everything to follow her conviction that love is stronger than duty. A socially inept but warmhearted landowner pursues his own visions instead of conforming to conventional views. The adulteress and the philosopher head the vibrant cast of characters in Anna Karenina, Tolstoy´s tumultuous tale of passion and self-discovery. This novel marks a turning point in the author´s career, the juncture at which he turned from fiction toward faith. Set against a backdrop of the historic social changes that swept Russia during the late 19th century, it reflects Tolstoy´s own personal and psychological transformation. Two worlds collide in the course of this epochal story: that of the old-time aristocrats, who struggle to uphold their traditions of serfdom and authoritarian government, and that of the westernizing liberals, who promote technology, rationalism, and democracy. This cultural clash unfolds in a compelling, emotional drama of seduction, betrayal, and redemption. Please note: This audiobook is in Russian. 1. Russian.

A Short Walk to the Other Side is a second short story collection of supernatural, metaphysical, science fiction, and horror stories following ´´The Small Dark Room of the Soul´´ by award-winning author Matthew J. Pallamary that examines the shadow side of human nature. Finalist - International Book AwardsWho are we really? What or where are the boundaries between what we believe to be real and what we imagine? Ancient tribal cultures gave equal credence to dreams, visions, and their waking worlds, treating them all as different degrees of one and the same all-encompassing reality. Do we in fact know ourselves or our true nature? How many times have we reacted impulsively, only to regret our actions later, often with the apology, ´´I’m sorry, I’m not myself today”, or ´´I don’t know what got into me”. In these moments of intense feeling, if we are not ourselves, then who or what are we? Where do we really live? The fact that the question arises makes the ´´other” implicit within ourselves. What is this ´´other”? Duality? Plurality? Divided self? Are we possessed by something other than ourselves, or are we in denial of our other selves because we find their behavior unacceptable? Do we possess them, or do they possess us? This quandary became the theme of an old-time radio show that started with: ´´Who knows what lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows.” How well do we know our shadows as individuals and collectively? Better still, how well do our shadows know us? Regardless of who is ´´running the show” at any point in space and time, every choice we make can change our life forever, along with the lives and destinies of others. A momentary lapse of attention while driving can cripple, maim, or bring swift and sudden death. One moment of careless passion can leave you responsible for another life or bring the imminent end of your own from any number of ghastly diseases. A brief m 1. Language: English.

Allotment wars! Lord Bellington, Carsely´s biggest landholder, has enraged locals by saying he is going to sell off their allotments to make way for a new housing development. So when he turns up dead, poisoned by antifreeze, nobody mourns his passing. On another fine summer´s day Agatha visits Carsley´s allotments where everything looks peaceful and perfect: people of all ages digging in the soil and working hard to grow their own fruit and veg. Agatha feels almost tempted to take on a strip herself . . . but common sense soon prevails. She doesn´t really like getting her hands dirty. She is introduced to three oldtimers who have just taken over a new strip; Harry Perry, Bunty Daventry and Josephine Merriweather are lamenting the neglected condition of the patch. But as Harry starts to shovel through the weeds and grass his spade comes across something hard so he bends down and tries to move the object. And then he starts to yell . . . The body is that of Peta Currie, a newcomer to the village - but who would want to murder her? Blonde and beautiful she´s every local male´s favourite. And then Lord Bellingham´s son engages Agatha to do some digging of her own and very soon Agatha is thrown into a world of petty feuds, jealousies and disputes over land. It would seem that far from being tiny gardens of Eden, Carsley´s allotments are local battlefields where passions - and the bodycount - run high!

Beaton has created a national treasure´ Anne Robinson ´M.C. Beaton´s imperfect heroine is an absolute gem´ Publishers Weekly ´The Miss Marple-like Raisin is a refreshing, sensible, wonderfully eccentric, thoroughly likeable heroine´ Booklist
