If you could change your life, would you? For fans of The Elegance of the Hedgehog, the story of a woman who runs a sewing shop in a small town in France, and a chance in a million.... Jocelyne is 47 and runs her own dressmaking shop. She's a bit overweight, her husband is very ordinary, and her best friends are the twins who run the hairdresser next door. Jocelyn has reached the point where she is examining her life and measuring it against what her teenage self had imagined. We discover that Jocelyn's mother dropped dead suddenly when she was 17, and her father fell ill shortly afterwards, so she had to take the job in the shop rather than pursue her dreams. But then is she really unhappy? She has her weekends away, her friendships, her sewing blog, her work and its small pleasures.... Then the twins persuade Jocelyn to enter the euromillion lottery and she wins 18 million euros. She could do anything with the money, change her life completely, but what does she really want? She doesn't tell anyone about the win...not just yet.... Without cashing the cheque she begins to write down her 'list of desires' - a new coat, a bath mat, a visit to her daughter in England. She goes in to the Chanel shop in Paris, thinking she could buy anything she wants but will a new bag really make her any happier than the sandwich her husband prepared for her that morning. Meanwhile, her dressmaking blog is taking off, helping Jocelyn to help other women. But then the question is taken out of her hands when someone close to Jocelyne acts with devastating consequences.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jilly Bond.

Matt Mikalatos offers a poignant and compassionate look at a father's relationship with his children, the healing power of a small act of kindness, and the certainty that even death can't stop love in a deeply moving memoir inspired by a sky lantern with a scribbled note and the journey to find the child who wrote it. Love you, Daddy. Miss you so much. Steph. Steph scribbled those words on a sky lantern before sending it off to her father in heaven, who had passed away from cancer. Halfway across the country, Steph's lantern landed in Matt Mikalatos' yard. As a father of three daughters, Matt could not let Steph's note go unanswered, so he posted an open letter to her on his blog. Matt never could have expected the viral response to his letter that led him on a journey to find Steph - and to bring healing to thousands of others in desperate need of the loving words of a father. Filled with paternal wisdom and reflections on the relationship between a father and their child, Sky Lantern shows how the miraculous events that followed Matt finding the sky lantern in his yard - and the widespread and lasting impact his letter had - prove that the bond between a parent and their child is everlasting. 1.

A man posts a personal sex ad on Craigslist. No problem, right? Except this guy is a teacher, and it seems his private life is not private. After a complaint to the police from an anonymous caller, our teacher removed the ad. But it didn't end there; he was fired. Susie finds the decision of the court over this case to be so misguided, she's breathing fire. She looks at what they called "vulgar" and "inappropriate" and calls the firing a witch hunt by repressed men who are holier then thou. Give us a break! Justice has not been served. Next, Semengate. That's right, there's a big controversy over one surgeon's studies into the therapeutic power of semen. Dr. Lazar Greenfield wrote about how nature and semen work together to create a stronger bond between men and women. Sounds okay… until he joked that, on Valentines Day, "We [now] know there's a better gift for that day than chocolates." Lame jokes aside, Susie has a lot to say about the science behind the studies. Then, in our "Try This at Home" mailbag, Susie gets a letter from a man who says, "My ex demands that I lecture my son against porn. Help. I was reading Playboy magazines as a young man, and I think it's okay. What can I do?" Have a question? You can call Susie's hotline at 831-480-5110.

The year is 1703, and Matthew Corbett, professional "problem solver", is missing. Last seen by his friends in New York before he departed on a lucrative, seemingly straightforward mission for the Herrald Agency in Charles Town, he's been too long absent. His comrade-in-arms Hudson Greathouse has an increasing sense the young friend he thinks of as a son must have met with some unexpected peril. Following his hunch, Greathouse retraces Matthew's steps only to find him first presumed dead, then accused of murdering a young woman and apparently en route to London with a devious Prussian count last encountered on Professor Fell's Pendulum Island. Little does he know that Matthews's circumstances are growing worse by the second. For when Matthew arrives in the bustling squalor of Londontown, he's come shackled, charged for the murder of Count Anton Mannerheim Dahlgren. No matter the lack of body, presumed lost to the ocean. He soon finds himself locked up in the infamous Newgate prison, and has drawn the interest of a mysterious mask-wearing vigilante accused of several gruesome murders. Greathouse and the woman Matthew loves, Berry Grigsby, travel across the high seas to England to aid their friend, but it is impossible to know whether they will reach him in time to save his life. Freedom of the Mask is the sixth installment in best-selling author Robert McCammon's acclaimed series of standalone historical thrillers featuring the exploits of a young hero the USA Character Approved Blog has called "the Early American James Bond". The most surprising and ambitious volume to date, this is a novel filled with unpredictable twists and a note-perfect depiction of early 1700s London. Fans will not want to miss Matthew Corbett's most dangerous adventure yet. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Edoardo Ballerini.

A moving, thought-provoking and surprisingly humorous book which is both a description of a journey to death and a celebration of the act of living. Based on Clare Wise's blog, which she started when she was first diagnosed with cancer in 2013, Not That Kind of Love charts the highs and lows of the last three years of Clare's life. The end result is not a book that fills you with despair and anguish. On the contrary, Not That Kind of Love should be listened to by everybody for its candour and for its warmth and spirit. Clare is an astonishingly dynamic, witty and fun personality, and her positivity and energy exude from every minute. As she becomes too weak to type, her brother - the actor Greg Wise - takes over, and the book morphs into a beautiful meditation on life and the necessity of talking about death. With echoes of Atul Gawande's Being Mortal and Cathy Rentzenbrink's The Last Act of Love, it is a very special listen that rejoices in the extraordinary and often underestimated sibling bond and the importance of making the most of the ordinary pleasures life has to offer. As Greg Wise writes in the book: 'Celebrate the small things, the small moments. If you find yourself with matching socks as you leave the house in the morning, that is a cause for celebration. If the rest of the day is spent finding the cure for cancer, or brokering world peace, then that's a bonus.'
