The Maid's Version

Daniel Woodrell
Authors:
Daniel Woodrell

In 1929, an explosion at a dance hall in a Missouri town killed 42 people. Who was to blame? Mobsters from St. Louis? Embittered gypsies? The preacher who railed against the loose morals of the waltzing couples? Or could it have been a colossal accident?Alma Dunahew, whose scandalous younger sister was among the dead, believes she knows the answer - and that its roots lie in a dangerous love affair. But no one will listen to a woman from the wrong side of the tracks. Maid to a prominent citizen, wife of a hopeless alcoholic, her dogged pursuit of justice makes her an outcast and causes a long-standing rift with her own son. It is only decades later that her grandson listens to her account and unearths the sorry truth. With remarkable economy, Daniel Woodrell tells a richly layered story of passion, betrayal and vengeance and two families at opposite ends of the social scale connected down the generations by a festering secret. This is a stunning novel by a writer hailed by Roddy Doyle as 'one of the world's greatest novelists'.

The Utter Relief of Holiness

John Eldredge
Authors:
John Eldredge

Do you want to feel whole - but too often, feel pulled in different directions? Do you want to be holy - but think it's beyond you? We tend to associate holiness with striving and restriction - but what if a holy life were really about being set free from all our burdens? In THE UTTER RELIEF OF HOLINESS, John Eldredge teaches that, rather than being a daunting or distant ideal, holiness is in fact an expression of the healing of our humanity. Eldredge believes that we can be set free from all that plagues us - the inner struggle with anger, or contempt, or habitual sins - to find the genuine goodness that is available to us in Jesus Christ.Wise, gentle and rooted in the Bible, THE UTTER RELIEF OF HOLINESS guides the reader along the paths God leads us to make us whole and holy - by his love.

Constance

Franny Moyle
Authors:
Franny Moyle

In the spring of 1895 the life of Constance Wilde changed irrevocably. Up until the conviction of her husband, Oscar, for homosexual crimes, she had held a privileged position in society. Part of a gilded couple, she was a popular children's author, a fashion icon, and a leading campaigner for women's rights. A founding member of the magical society the Golden Dawn, her pioneering and questioning spirit encouraged her to sample some of the more controversial aspects of her time. Mrs Oscar Wilde was a phenomenon in her own right. But that spring Constance's entire life was eclipsed by scandal. Forced to flee to the Continent with her two sons, her glittering literary and political career ended abruptly. Having changed her name, she lived in exile until her death. Franny Moyle now tells Constance's story with a fresh eye and remarkable new material. Drawing on numerous unpublished letters, she brings to life the story of a woman at the heart of fin-de-siècle London and the Aesthetic movement. In a compelling and moving tale of an unlikely couple caught up in a world unsure of its moral footing, she uncovers key revelations about a woman who was the victim of one of the greatest betrayals of all time.

Beautiful Outlaw

John Eldredge
Authors:
John Eldredge

In BEAUTIFUL OUTLAW, John Eldredge removes the religious varnish to help readers discover stunning new insights into the humanity of Jesus. He was accused of breaking the law, keeping bad company, heavy drinking, of being the devil himself. He was so compelling and dangerous they had to kill him. But others loved him passionately. He had a sense of humour. His generosity was scandalous. His anger made enemies tremble. He'd say the most outrageous things. He was definitely not the Jesus of the stained glass.In the author's winsome, narrative approach, he breaks Jesus out of the typical stereotypes, just as he set masculinity free in his book, Wild at Heart. By uncovering the real Jesus, listeners are welcomed into the rich emotional life of Christ. All of the remarkable qualities of Jesus burst like fireworks with colour and brilliance because of his humanity.Eldredge goes on to show listeners how they can experience this Jesus in their lives every day. This audiobook will quicken readers' worship, and deepen their intimacy with Jesus.
