In 1851, Elizabeth Parker, a free black child in Chester County, Pennsylvania, was bound and gagged, snatched from a local farm, and hurried off to a Baltimore slave pen. Two weeks later, her teenage sister, Rachel, was abducted from another Chester County farm. Because slave catchers could take fugitive slaves and free blacks across state lines to be sold, the border country of Pennsylvania/Maryland had become a dangerous place for most black people. In The Parker Sisters, Lucy Maddox gives an eloquent, urgent account of the tragic kidnapping of these young women. Using archival news and courtroom reports, Maddox tells the larger story of the disastrous effect of the Fugitive Slave Act on the small farming communities of Chester County and the significant, widening consequences for the state and the nation. The Parker Sisters is also a story about families whose lives and fates were deeply embedded in both the daily rounds of their community and the madness and violence consuming all of antebellum America. Maddox´s account of this horrific and startling crime reveals the strength and vulnerability of the Parker sisters and the African American population. The book is published by Temple University Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lia Frederick. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/089252/bk_acx0_089252_sample.mp3.

Suicide should never be taken lightly. According to the latest research, it is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States and has caused immeasurable pain and suffering to families around the world. But what about those who have contemplated suicide and lived to talk about it? What can we learn from those who have looked so directly into the face of death that they discovered something about life? In her debut novel, The Little Black Book of Suicide Notes, Adele Paula Royce presents a semi-fictional look inside the mind and heart of a tortured soul who is on the verge of ending her own life. Through this raw and authentic journey into the heart of darkness, Adele shines a unique light on the human experience that leaves you more inspired to live life to the fullest. Even if you´ve never considered suicide yourself (though research suggests that most people have at some point in their life), you´ll find resonance with her story. Each note takes you deeper down the rabbit hole, and conveys a kind of philosophical bravery that comes from facing your own demise. By the end, you´ll find yourself looking at life in a new, and surprisingly optimistic way. Coming back to life in a new way One part suicide journal and one part spiritual memoir, Adele´s novel is really a tale of life, death, and rebirth. She draws upon her own rich history of spiritual practice and inquiry to look at suicide from the deepest possible level. In doing so, she uses her character to show us how to live by showing us first how not to live. And by going into the deepest darkness, she finds a different kind of light at the end of the tunnel than she expected. A unique listening experience Read by the author herself, this audiobook weaves together the spoken word with classic rock and roll tunes and an originally composed soundtrack to create a powerful, immersive experience.... 1.

A truth-sayer´s guide to assessing one´s entrepreneurial aptitude, written for anyone seriously considering starting a business of any kind. Most entrepreneur guides focus on the mechanics of raising capital, drafting a business plan, and handling licensing, but they overlook the serious self-reflection that is required in the decision to launch a business. And most of the literature is obsessed with success stories, while ignoring the much more illuminating and instructional lessons that can be learned from failure. Featuring interviews and anecdotes from the author´s nearly twenty years as an entrepreneur, The Little Black Book of Entrepreneurship identifies the 14 Key Failure Factors that every aspiring entrepreneur should be aware of before signing the papers. ´´Entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of any economy, and yet over 90 percent of new entrepreneurial ventures fail. By forewarning would-be entrepreneurs about the 14 causes of failure, this book´s thoughtful dose of reality will raise the quality of entrepreneurship by deterring misguided ventures and increasing the number of informed, successful start-ups.´´ (Philip Kotler, author of Principles of Marketing and Marketing Management) 1.
