New Audiobooks for August 2009

Here's a sample of some recent additions to our downloadable audio book collection. All of these titles are available in the library catalog:

Abraham Lincoln: A Presidential Life, by James M. McPherson (2009). McPherson follows Abraham Lincoln from his early frontier days through his turbulent years in the White House.

The Best of Everything, by Kimberla Lawson Roby (2009). The Reverend Curtis Black has made his share of mistakes, a fact his daughter Alicia is all too aware of. When Alicia marries Phillip, the assistant pastor of her daddy's church, she knows she's landed a good man. But Alicia also thinks she deserves every little thing her heart desires. And her out-of-control spending just might cost her much more than a few black marks on her credit report.

The Job Search Solution: The Ultimate System for Finding a Great Job Now!, by Tony Beshara (2009). Beshara presents a step-by-step system that allows listeners to take control of their own day-to-day job search process. In addition to illuminating real-life job search stories, the audiobook contains interactive exercises, practical dos and don'ts, and more.

The Last Place, by Laura Lippman (2009). Baltimore investigator Tess Monaghan has her hands full with five murder cases that have gone cold. Each has a domestic violence angle, and the cases also share a disturbing connection-- one that points to Tess herself.

Queenmaker, by India Edghill (2009). The childhood sweetheart of David, Michal is the daughter of King Saul, David's good friend and even greater enemy. Although they are married as teenagers, David abandons Michal only to remarry her 10 years later after ascending the throne as King. David is a greedy and ambitious man, but Michal refuses to compromise her soul and thrives in her own ways under his rule.

The Rustler, by Linda Lael Miller (2009). Wyatt Yarbro, the new deputy marshal of Stone Creek, has his eyes on secretive banker's daughter Sarah Tamlin. But Sarah is a strong, independent woman--no damsel in distress.

Where the Heart Leads, by Kim Vogel Sawyer (2009). With a college diploma safely in hand, 20-year-old Thomas Ollenburger is torn between his Mennonite roots on the Kansas prairie and his affluent life in Boston society--and by romantic entanglements in each world. And now even Heaven seems deaf to questions about his choices of vocation, wife, and home.

Carmichael's collection of over 2,300 downloadable audio books are available to all UM students, staff, and faculty. Instructions on how to access the audio books are available on our website.

Happy listening!
