Join USA Today best-selling author Sheila Roberts this Christmas as she returns for the final installment in her treasured Icicle Falls series. When Muriel Sterling released her new book, A Guide to Happy Holidays, she felt like the queen of Christmas. She´s thrilled when the new tree she ordered online arrives and is eager to show it off - until she gets it out of the box and realizes it´s a mangy dud. But rather than give up on the ugly tree, Muriel decides to make a project out of it. As she pretties up her tree, she realizes there´s a lesson to be learned: Everything and everyone has potential. Maybe even her old friend Arnie, who´s loved her for years. Except she´s not the only one seeing Arnie´s potential.... Meanwhile, Muriel´s ugly-tree project has also inspired her friends. Sienna Moreno is trying to bring out the best in the grouchy man next door, who hates noise, hates kids, and hates his new neighbors. And while Olivia Claussen would love to send her obnoxious new daughter-in-law packing, she´s adjusting her attitude and trying to discover what her son sees in the girl. If these women can learn to see the beauty in the ´´ugly trees´´ in their lives, perhaps this might turn out to be the happiest holiday yet. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Amy McFadden.

Past the rusted gates and untrimmed hedges, Hill House broods and waits…. Four seekers have come to the ugly, abandoned old mansion: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of the psychic phenomenon called haunting; Theodora, his lovely and lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a lonely, homeless girl well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the adventurous future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable noises and self-closing doors, but Hill House is gathering its powers and will soon choose one of them to make its own. Shirley Jackson (1916–1965), a celebrated writer of horror, wrote such classic novels as We Have Always Lived in the Castle and The Bird’s Nest, as well as one of the most famous short stories in the English language, ´´The Lottery”. She has influenced such writers as Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, and Richard Matheson. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bernadette Dunne.

They want to shut you up. But don´t let this be the End of Discussion. In this fresh and provocative new audiobook, Mary Katharine Ham and Guy Benson, dynamic Fox News and Townhall Media duo, expose how the Left exploits fake outrage to silence their political opponents - in public, on social media, at work, and even in their own homes. End of Discussion encourages all Americans who value the open exchange of ideas to fight back against this strategic effort to make America less free, less feisty, and less fun. Ham and Benson demonstrate just how dangerous the outrage industry - a coalition of mostly liberal blowhards and busybodies - is to democracy. This media frenzy is designed to disqualify opposing viewpoints on everything from health care to infrastructure to education by labeling them racist, sexist, and evil. They punish speech that makes them uncomfortable, demanding boycotts, firings, regulations, and other economic costs for the sin of disagreeing with them. Instead of engaging in discussion, they seek to win the debate by preventing it from happening. And if you think this behavior is relegated to political fights or politicians, think again. A network of well-trained operatives, nonprofit groups, PR firms, universities, politicians, and ´´thought leaders´´ exists to foment outrage over your association with the ´´wrong´´ fried chicken joints, Internet browsers, breast cancer charities, pasta, children´s toys, Halloween costumes, TV shows, schools, and even comedians´ jokes. With Ham and Benson´s help, listeners can cut through the noise and find their voices again, fighting back against the rampant self-censorship and hair-trigger apologies that always make things worse, not better. With fresh reporting and insightful, occasionally tongue-in-cheek, analysis, End of Discussion is a timely handbook for anyone who wants to make sure debate doesn´t meet an ugly death.... 1.
