Charlie Matthews’ love story begins in a pebble-dashed house in suburban Bolton, at a time when most little boys want to grow up to be Michael Jackson, and girls want to be Princess Di. Remembering the Green Cross Code and getting out of football are the most important things in his life until Auntie Jan gives him a gift that will last a lifetime: a seven-inch single called ´´Lucky Star´´.... On his ninth birthday, Charlie discovers Madonna and falls in love. His obsession sees him through some tough times in life: being persecuted at school, fitting in at a posh university, a glamorous career in London, finding boyfriends, getting rid of boyfriends, and family heartbreak. Madonna’s music and videos inspire him, and her fierce determination to succeed gives him the confidence to do the same. Ultimately, though, he must learn to let go of his idol and find his own voice. Charlie’s story is Billy Elliot meets Beautiful Thing wearing a conical bra - a story for anyone who ever sang their heart out, looked for love and dreamed of more.... The Madonna of Bolton will make you laugh, cry and Get into the Groove. It’s a book to Cherish and a Ray of Light, and it even has a little Hanky Panky. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Simon Vause.

The best-selling author of The Ancient Future returns with the final instalment of this compelling series about an ancient and powerful female lineage.... Mia Montrose, archaeological linguist, has discovered that the Black Madonna is a code used by secret societies throughout time for the lost key to an ancient power source: the Sphere of Amenti. Kali, interdimensional Queen of the Anunnaki - now fully merged with the youngest Dragon Queen, Tamar Devere - has less than a year to rehabilitate her Fallen kindred who desire intergalactic domination. Ashlee Granville-Devere and the Dragon Queens must pool their talents to open the 12 Stations of the Signet Grid and unlock the Halls of Amenti, lest the Fallen succeed in using time-travel technologies to destroy humanity. From the ancient past to the distant future, from Montsègur to the way stations of the universe, from the Underworld of the Kali Rift to the Otherworld of the Ranna time Flow - the intertime war must be won for the sake of the future. 1.

When the body of a lovely young woman is found floating beneath a party pontoon on a popular lake in northern Wisconsin on the same morning that a prominent widow is found bludgeoned in her gracious home, Loon Lake Police Chief Lew Ferris is caught short-handed. This is not a problem for Doc Osborne whom she deputizes to act as coroner and to assist with the investigation. Fishing aside, there´s nothing Osborne likes better than helping Lew - a world-class fly fisherman in her own right - delve into Loon Lake´s criminal underworld. They´re joined in their efforts to untangle two seemingly unrelated murders by walleye-expert, talented tracker, and teller of really bad jokes Ray Pradt. A charming resort town on the surface, life in Loon Lake turns murky as bank officials soon discover that both victims´ accounts have been looted - along with a dozen others. One grisly development after another further links the two murders even though the victims did not know each other. Wealthy Chicagoans, visiting entrepreneurs, and the young denizens of ´´Party Cove´´ complicate the scene. Whoever thought life in the Northwoods could be this dangerous? 1. Language: English.

This is a powerful presentation of the astonishing fact that amongst White European nations their most sacred icons of the Madonna and Christ are black in colour. This comprehensive book shows you the images in full glorious technicolour. It is the only place where the profound national historical significance of these black images is discussed. They are so little known in comparison to their great importance. A must buy for those interested in a historically correct image of not just Jesus Christ, but the whole concept of deity in ancient times. 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Butler.

Your relationship seemed to be one that you had always strived for. The two of you seemed perfect together, and you were building a future together. Suddenly you are faced with your partner´s adulterous affair and his infidelity. You start to doubt your own self-worth, and your self-esteem starts to slide into the gutter. You feel absolutely miserable. You mull things over, and you realize that your partner wants you to take him back. He wants to make amends. After all, he says, he still loves you. And he does. You wonder why he cheated if he loves you so much. Wouldn´t our men stop straying if we were the only women they were meant to be with? Your man is just as confused as you as to why he is cheating. I am here to tell you that there is a reason your man cheated. It has a lot less to do with how you were treating him and a lot more to do with other things that were in his life a long time before you came along. It has to do with his upbringing and his caregivers, but not in the way that you think it does. In this audiobook, I am going to cover the real reason that your man cheated and show you that (if he says he still loves you) this is the ultimate truth that you must deal with when determining whether to walk away from the relationship or to give him another chance. There is a chance that he´ll cheat again because of the reason that he cheated the first time. There is a chance that he´ll likely always be a cheater, even if he runs off and meets another girl that he is enamored with. There is also a chance that he can change for good and stop cheating, and that is the goal of this audiobook. 1. Language: English. Narrator: D Gaunt.

Here you are...You´ve been married to or dating a man who has cheated. Maybe he cheated more than once. Maybe you only found out about this time. Maybe this is the first time he experienced weakness and fell for another girl´s seduction. Either way, you´re in the same boat. The pain of cheating can be completely unbearable, especially if you imagined the two of you having a future together. Cheating causes mistrust and serious self-esteem problems in the spouse who was cheated on. They don´t understand what they did wrong to cause their spouse to stray. They wonder if it was their looks, their age, their lack in sexual experience, or their personality. They wonder if it was the fight that happened last week or the fact that the two of them felt a distance creeping in-between them. Or maybe it was the jobs and the kids, and all of the other busy things that happen to people who are together. Many people blame cheating and adultery on the weakness of the man. They blame it on the temptations that he´s around every day. They feel as if the wool was pulled over their eyes. They anticipate difficulties in trusting another relationship again because they never imagined their partner would do what they´ve done. Sometimes, people cheat with someone they know. Maybe it was the nanny or the secretary at work. Maybe it was your best friend or even your sister. But it could be with someone you had never met. You turned a blind eye to his late-night activities or the phone calls and texts that he mysteriously responded to while you were out of the room. The truth is that many men cheat for a very different reason - a reason that many women and men aren´t even aware of until it´s too late. He is left not knowing why he destroyed something good, and she is left with a big hole in her heart, unsure if she will ever be able to trust again. The reason that I discuss in this audiobook is one that pretty much ensures that he will cheat again. 1. Language: English. Narrator: D Gaunt.
