The Seatons, affluent members of the Protestant gentry, own The Haven, a lush, opulent estate in the Scottish countryside. The Flynns, proud Catholics to the core, spend their working days in the factories and laundry houses of industrial Glasgow. Divided by class, wealth and religion, two families could not live more different lives. However, as the Great War fades from memory and discontent seeps in, both the Seatons and the Flynns grow restless and allow temptation to gain hold... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eve Karpt.

Constance Street: The true story of one family ...

One forgotten street, 12 unforgettable women. "'Ang on boy, Joan's got sumfink to show yer." She rummaged in a drawer for a moment, pulled out a piece of paper and handed it to me. "Constance Street," she said. "As I remember it." Through the story of one street - Constance Street - we hear the true life tales of a tight-knit group of working-class women in the East End of London set against a backdrop of war, hardship and struggle. It's a story of matriarchy and deep family ties, of a generation that was scattered away from the street during the blitz bombings but which maintained the ties of that street for decades afterwards. Set in an area of East London called Silvertown, a once thriving docking community that at the turn of the 20th century was the industrial heartland of the south of England, the story focuses on the lives of 12 incredible women and their struggles to survive amidst the chaos of the war years. We have Nellie Greenwood, the author's great-grandmother, who runs a laundry in Silvertown, which becomes the focal point of the community. In 1917 a munitions factory in Silvertown explodes, flattening much of the surrounding area and causing extensive damage to Constance Street. Nellie's daughter is blown from her crib but miraculously survives. Deciding to open the laundry as a field hospital for the injured, Nellie and the women on the street come together to tend the wounded, the sick and the emotionally shattered as they cope with the aftermath of not just one but two world wars. Through the Great War, the roaring '20s, the Depression and then the unimaginable - the outbreak of a second world war - Nellie and the street survive with love, laughter and friendships that bind the community together. But just as this incredible group of women live through the worst, the unthinkable happens. On 7 September 1940, Constance Street is no more. Following in the footsteps of Farewell to the East End 1.

Some agents have all the fun. Others save the world. Bob Howard is an IT expert and occasional field agent for The Laundry, the branch of Her Majesty's Secret Service that deals with occult threats. Dressed (grudgingly) in a tux and sent to the Caribbean, he must infiltrate a millionaire's yacht in order to prevent him violating a treaty that will start a war with an ancient underwater race. Partnered with a gorgeous American agent who's actually a soul-sucking succubus from another dimension, Bob's mission is to stop the bad guys, avoid getting the girl, and survive - shaken, perhaps, but not stirred. This audiobook includes the short story Pimpf, and an afterword read by the author. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack Hawkins.

Little Women , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 1031min

Generations of people - young and old, male and female - have fallen in love with the March sisters of Louisa May Alcott's most popular and enduring novel, Little Women. Talented tomboy and author-to-be Jo, tragically frail Beth, beautiful Meg, and romantic, spoiled Amy remain united in their devotion to each other and their struggles to survive in New England during the Civil War. It is no secret that Alcott based Little Women on her own early life. While her father, the free-thinking reformer and abolitionist Bronson Alcott, hobnobbed with such eminent male authors as Emerson, Thoreau, and Hawthorne, Louisa supported herself and her sisters with "woman’s work," including sewing, doing laundry, and acting as a domestic servant. But she soon discovered she could make more money writing. Little Women brought her lasting fame and fortune, and far from being the "girl’s book" her publisher requested, it explores such timeless themes as love and death, war and peace, the conflict between personal ambition and family responsibilities, and the clash of cultures between Europe and America. 1.

Born in 1940, one of eight children, Maxine Hong Kingston is the daughter of Chinese immigrants to America. Her father, a scholar in China, ran a laundry business and a gambling house in California; her mother, a doctor in China, helped with the laundry and worked in the fields. Maxine won scholarships to the University of California at Berkeley, where she returned to teach as Senior Lecturer in the Department of English. But alongside her academic life, she had embarked on a career as a writer, and her extraordinary books have become key texts in the American canon. In many ways this memoir recalls her first major work, The Woman Warrior, in which she blended Chinese myth with fiction and autobiography to reflect on her mother's past life in China and the experience of immigrants to America. In I Love a Broad Margin to My Life, she writes from the point of view of being 65, looking back on a rich and complex life of literature and political activism, always against the background of what it is like to have a mixed Chinese-American identity. Passages of autobiography, in which she describes such events in her life as being imprisoned with Alice Walker for demonstrating against the Iraq war, meld with a fictional journey in which she sends her avatar Wittman Ah Sing on a trip to modern China. She also evokes her own poignant journey, without a guide, back to the villages of her father and mother. Beautifully written, endlessly thought-provoking, this is an important book from one of the major writers of her generation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Maxine Hong Kingston.

Nurse Mercy Lynch is elbows deep in bloody laundry at a war hospital in Richmond, Virginia, when Clara Barton comes bearing bad news: Mercy’s husband has died in a POW camp. On top of that, a telegram from the west coast declares that her estranged father is gravely injured, and he wishes to see her. Mercy sets out toward the Mississippi River. Once there, she’ll catch a train over the Rockies and - if the telegram can be believed - be greeted in Washington Territory by the sheriff, who will take her to see her father in Seattle. Reaching the Mississippi is a harrowing adventure by dirigible and rail through war-torn border states. When Mercy finally arrives in St. Louis, the only Tacoma-bound train is pulled by a terrifying Union-operated steam engine called the Dreadnought. Reluctantly, Mercy buys a ticket and climbs aboard. What ought to be a quiet trip turns deadly when the train is beset by bushwhackers, then vigorously attacked by a band of Rebel soldiers. The train is moving away from battle lines into the vast, unincorporated West, so Mercy can’t imagine why they’re so interested. Perhaps the mysterious cargo secreted in the second and last train cars has something to do with it? Mercy is just a frustrated nurse who wants to see her father before he dies. But she’ll have to survive both Union intrigue and Confederate opposition if she wants to make it off the Dreadnought alive. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kate Reading.

In Südamerika ist die temperamentvolle Kolumbianerin Shakira bereits seit ihrer Teenagerzeit ein Superstar. Ihren ersten Plattenvertrag unterschrieb sie mit zarten dreizehn Jahren, mit 15 nahm sie ihr zweites Album auf und spielte in einer beliebten TV-Serie ihres Heimatlandes mit. Mit gerade mal 19 Jahren stieg Shakira durch ihr drittes Album "Pies Descalzos" zur erfolgreichsten weiblichen Pop-Sängerin Südamerikas auf. Ihr vierter Longplayer "Dónde Están Los Ladrones?" brachte Shakira in den USA achtmal Platin, bevor sie ein Auftritt bei den "Latin Grammys" über die Grenzen ihrer Heimat hinaus bekannt machte. Die Single "Whenever, Wherever" schließlich ebnete 2001 den Weg für das 20 Millionen Mal verkaufte Album "Laundry Service".Damit stieg die Sängerin mit der markanten Stimme und dem aufsehenerregenden Hüftschwung zum globalen Megastar auf.
