Summary

Bud Richardville is inducted into the Army as the United States prepares to enter World War II in 1943.
 
A chance comment has Bud assigned to the Graves Registration Service, where his unit is tasked with locating, identifying, and burying the dead. Bud ships out, leaving behind his new wife, Lorraine: a mysterious woman who has stolen his heart but whose shadowy past leaves many unanswered questions.
 
When Bud and his men hit the beach at Normandy, they are immediately thrust into the horrors of what working in a graves unit entails. Bud is beaten down by the gruesome demands of his job and losses in his personal life, but then he meets Eva, an optimistic soul who despite the war can see a positive future. Will Eva's love be enough to save him?

    Dreamer at the End of the Universe tells the epic story of four generations of a Celtic family battling the elements and the animals to scrape a living from a land with no fat and little lean. Ours was a wilderness farm in Central Ontario populated by animals, insects, and rocks. And I loved that place. The early generations killed the animals and fought the land. My generation has come to realize who owns this place. Humans have been tenants for a handful of years, while the true owners are the animals who have their own lives. As Charles Darwin wrote, “There is no fundamental difference between man and animals in their ability to feel pleasure and pain, happiness, and misery.”The farm rested in a cradle of rocks called the “Land Between.” This is a region where two iconic environments collided, the Canadian Shield and the St. Lawrence Lowlands, to create a vast area rich in plants, animals, and people—the best of both ecosystems. Together with My Cousin & Me: And Other Animals plus Wolves: Ryders in the Whirlwind, this book comprises a trilogy, I call The Land. In the beginning, I had no conscious intention of writing a trilogy, but after a while, the people, the bears, the wolves, and the other animals in my stories took on a life of their own, thus demanding more description, time, and care. I was attentive to such pleading, such longing to be remembered, before the time when all this will be forgotten. This enchantment with the land, animals, and people is still fresh in my memory. This happiness is still felt in my heart. And had I the strength and the wisdom, I would write a fourth volume, but all good things end.Postscript:Gordon Harrison is an award-winning author of books on nature, science, and art. When he isn’t writing, or drinking Glenmorangie single malt scotch whiskey, he’s photographing the “endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful” of Ontario. The author has placed 193 of his wildlife photos in this new book.

    Amy Bloch, accomplished psychiatrist, busy and fully in control of her professional and family life, was dealt what she thought was a devastating, insurmountable set-back when her daughter Emily was born with a severe brain malformation. Amy tried desperately to “fix” Emily and exhausted herself in her efforts to deal with the “problem” using her intellect, going at it brain-first, the way we tend to approach any challenge in our society. Emily, by default, lives completely heart-first: She simply doesn’t have the capabilities to approach life brain-first. 
    
    The Power of Heart is the distillation of what Emily taught Amy—applicable to anyone’s life. While the brain is amazing, powerful, and also quite useful, it does come with limitations. And there’s some stuff the brain just doesn’t know, which is where the heart comes in. Tapping into the heart helps your brain perform better—and makes you stronger and smarter than you will ever be trusting only the brain. 
    
    The heart will allow you to live with uncertainty; find strength, resilience, courage, and persistence in tough times; know your true self; manage emotions; and cast off self-criticism and doubt.
    
    Amy’s message of living heart-first, in conjunction with the brain, is presented in deeply thoughtful, life-affirming, inspiring, practical, and accessible chapters that will resonate with listeners of all ages and walks of life who are in search of coping strategies and self-improvement.

    Relax with Alice, sit and chat over a cup of tea, as she invites you into her life.
    See an old press overflowing with the linen collection of two generations, the oil lamps and clocks inherited and collected over many years, and the books of people who once lived here. Alice tells you of the sad loss of her beautiful dogs Kate and Lolly, friends of the heart, and takes you around her village to meet her neighbours, join a meitheal to plant trees, and visit the fairy doors in the nearby wood.
    But Alice's home and community are not a perfect place: hear about the split in the local GAA club, blocked off rights of way, the donations of the local canine population on the footpaths! Visit a restored famine graveyard and hear about the landlords who once owned this village and the landmarks they left on the landscape and the people. This is life in a small Irish village in 2016, one hundred years after the Rising.
    This Bestselling book is coming in paperback edition.

    I have created a memoir based narrative road map so that other young women can enjoy their feminity and gain a sense of inner strength while avoiding some of the painful roadblocks, quicksand, and dead ends that many falsely believe are a fact of life. I worked diligently to educate and rebuild myself and I have sifted through the years of workshops, manuscripts, therapists and outlets to highlight the few tools that I find to be the most efficient. 
    In Five Gallons to Empty I share with honesty and vulnerability, my journey from despair and pain to strength and inner fortitude. It is my deepest desire to inspire other young women and to help them avoid the painful, unnecessary, and avoidable trials to which so many fall victim. It primarily approaches the subjects of sex, drugs and confidence. 
    I have invested a tremendous amount of time, money, and emotion into this book. But in the end, it is not about me; it is about serving as a guide to young women. I believe they need one. I believe I am one. If you have taken note lately of their current role models, or if you have a daughter, you may agree that they are in dire need of a stronger voice. I am excited to see this audiobook release and to passionately market it so that young women everywhere can learn from my mistakes and live comfortably, powerfully, and productively.

    Robert Iger became CEO of The Walt Disney Company in 2005, during a difficult time. Competition was more intense than ever, and technology was changing faster than at any time in the company’s history. His vision came down to three clear ideas: Recommit to the concept that quality matters, embrace technology instead of fighting it, and think bigger - think global - and turn Disney into a stronger brand in international markets. 
    Fourteen years later, Disney is the largest, most admired media company in the world, counting Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and 21st Century Fox among its properties. Its value is nearly five times what it was when Iger took over, and he is recognized as one of the most innovative and successful CEOs of our era. 
    In The Ride of a Lifetime, Robert Iger shares the lessons he learned while running Disney and leading its 220,000-plus employees, and he explores the principles that are necessary for true leadership, including: 
    ●     Optimism. Even in the face of difficulty, an optimistic leader will find the path toward the best possible outcome and focus on that, rather than give in to pessimism and blaming. 
    ●     Courage. Leaders have to be willing to take risks and place big bets. Fear of failure destroys creativity. 
    ●     Decisiveness. All decisions, no matter how difficult, can be made on a timely basis. Indecisiveness is both wasteful and destructive to morale. 
    ●     Fairness. Treat people decently, with empathy, and be accessible to them
