    “Cadbury lays out in fascinating detail the historical mystery of the royal heir . . . and uses modern science to try to solve it.” —The Wall Street Journal 
     
    In 1793, when Marie Antoinette was beheaded at the guillotine during the French Revolution, she left her adored eight-year-old son, Louis Charles, imprisoned in the Temple Tower. Far from inheriting a throne, the orphaned boy-king had to endure the hostility and abuse of a nation. Two years later, the revolutionary leaders declared Louis XVII dead. No grave was dug, no monument built to mark his passing. 
     
    Immediately, rumors spread that the prince had, in fact, escaped from prison and was still alive. Others believed that he had been murdered, his heart cut out and preserved as a relic. As with the tragedies of England’s princes in the Tower and the Romanov archduchess Anastasia, countless “brothers” soon approached Louis-Charles’s older sister, Marie-Therese, who survived the revolution. They claimed not only the dauphin’s name, but also his inheritance. Several “princes” were plausible, but which, if any, was the real heir to the French throne? 
     
    The Lost King of France is a moving and dramatic tale that interweaves a pivotal moment in France’s history with a compelling detective story that involves pretenders to the crown, royalist plots and palace intrigue, bizarre legal battles, and modern science. The quest for the truth continued into the twenty-first century, when, thanks to DNA testing, the strange odyssey of a stolen heart found within the royal tombs brought an exciting conclusion to the two-hundred-year-old mystery of the lost king of France. 
     
    “A winning and highly readable account of the French Revolution.” —Publishers Weekly

    We don’t always talk about some of the darker sides of human psychology, but they are out there. The simple truth is that just because you don’t focus on something, doesn’t mean it’s not real. 
    On that note, this book discussed topics such as blackmail, manipulation, and sadism. Some people have been hurt so much that all they want, is to see the world burn. They don’t care about others, and they just use them as tools to get what they want. 
    If you are tough enough to face that dark side, then come on over and start reading or listening to this guide.

    “[Suleyman’s] narration brings a palpably chilling authority to a story she shouldn’t have to tell.” — Vulture 
    A devastating personal testimony and a searing indictment of persistent misogyny. 
    In January 2017, Chimene Suleyman was on her way to an abortion clinic in Queens, New York with her boyfriend, the father of her nascent child. It was the last day they would spend together. In an extraordinary sequence of events, Chimene was to discover the truth of her boyfriend's life: that the man she’d loved had gaslit, lied to, stolen from, and painfully betrayed her and many others. 
    In this spellbinding memoir, Suleyman exposes one man's control over many women and the trauma he left behind and celebrates the sisterhood that formed in his wake despite—and in spite of—him. With radiant prose and incisive observation, Suleyman questions society’s complicity in allowing those who would do women harm to flourish and contemplates why others remain silent witnesses by accepting and normalizing shameless behavior towards women. She demonstrates how women themselves are acculturated to perform prescribed roles of giver and nurturer, to be self-sacrificing and subordinate, and to bolster the egos of others by remaining silent and ignoring their own protective instincts. 
    A soul-baring story, brilliant cultural critique, and celebration of the healing power of sisterhood, The Chain is a book for any woman who has questioned her relationship and buried her doubts, for any woman who can't quite identify the source of her unease and for any woman who has been sheltered by the fierce protection of her female friends.

    St. Augustine of Hippo (354–430) is unquestionably one of the most influential figures in Western Civilization. This audio course will bring you to the heart of St. Augustine’s works, revealing how his words speak to us across the centuries. According to his rival and contemporary, St. Jerome, Augustine “established anew the ancient faith.” A preeminent Doctor of the Church, saint, and patron of the Augustinian religious order, he had an indelible influence on Christianity. This audio series will provide you with a comprehensive portrait of St. Augustine. Much of the course is drawn from Augustine’s own words, which have echoed throughout the centuries. You will encounter segments devoted to each of his timeless masterpieces (Confessions and City of God) and to each of his best-known controversies (against the Manichees, Donatists, and Pelagians). You will also examine his everyday work as a bishop, preacher, and interpreter of the Bible. This series is designed to help you navigate the vast corpus of Augustine’s writings, tuning your ears to the melodies of Augustine’s speech and the power of his mind. Drawn from William Harmless’s book Augustine In His Own Words (2010), the lectures are intended for a broad listening public. They pair state-of-the-art scholarship with lucid translations, giving listeners a first taste ofAugustine as his contemporaries knew him: a theologian of masterful eloquence.This course is part of the Learn25 collection and includes a free PDF study guide.
