Summary

The fifth edition of Wisden India Almanack has essays from the best writers, and those from other fields who are passionate about the sport, like the CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella. The coverage of domestic cricket is both extensive and original. The Almanack is actually four books in one: a volume of essays, a book of records, an annual of matches played, and a miscellany of unusual occurrences, all of which make for a great read. It is a treat for the cricket fanatic, and for those interested in fine writing and intriguing stories.

They had dreamed of one day trading the long, gray winters and damp summers of England for the blue skies and sunshine of the coast of southern France. And then they made it happen.

Among their experiences that first year: being inundated with builders and visitors, grappling with the native accent, taking part in goat races and supervising the planting of a new vineyard.  Peter Mayle personally recounts the pleasures and frustrations of Provençal life-sharing in a way no one else can, the unique and endearing culture that is Provence. A Year in Provence was a New York Times bestseller for three years and won the British Book Awards' "Best Travel Book of the Year."

    About the expert: Author Amanda Wills started riding horses when she was 13 years old and had her first registered Quarter horse by the age of 14. The chestnut nightmare that was then hers was the most imperfect horse a beginner could ask for in life, but the mare was hers. Together, they learned from very difficult lessons in respect, riding, showing, and life.  
    Amanda credits the mare, named Molly, with getting her through some very difficult teenage years. Molly stayed with her until she died at the age of 26. Throughout the years, Amanda had several other horses, rode for others, and even worked as a groom. The numerous people she had the blessed opportunity to get to know have offered words of caution and wisdom over the years. Most of these words were from highly experienced horse men and women and have been shared in this audiobook.

Blending mythology with historical fact, his account is both lyrical and shrewdly observed. With a keen awareness of the socio-political climate, Lawrence captures a Sardinia that is both timeless and of the moment.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
