When the short bypass around Green opens with much fanfare, downtown dries up faster than cement on the roadway. Businesses close, and the hospital becomes a clinic. Mayor Eva must decide whether to sell her historic store or close it. The Holey Moley Antique Mall seems less like a dream and more like a nightmare. While the road is progress to some, it seems to be leading Green toward a national trend - a town that is merely a shadow of itself. With the town going backward, Lois leans on her faith but is both intrigued and jealous when a fellow business owner comes up with a strategy to save Green. But can her plan rescue the town from the path it´s on? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tara Ochs. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/024939/bk_adbl_024939_sample.mp3.

With wedding plans well underway, Lois Barker plots to gracefully get rid of her groom´s catfish collection - stuffed, ceramic, woven. Her husband-to-be, Chris, on the other hand, has decided to get rid of something else: his homestead, which he gives to a needy Mexican family at church. Life is full of possibilities, and the community of Green is tickled pink that their newspaper owner is settling down with one of their own. However, the beloved small-town journalist is about to be blown away - by tragedy and by the grace that enfolds her in her third year in Green, Louisiana. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tara Ochs.

A novel about saving the environment through totalitarian repression - by Frank Herbert´s son Brian. A revolution has taken over the government of the United States, and the environment has been saved. All pollution has been banned and reversed. It´s a bright, green new world. But this new world comes at a great cost. The United States is ruled by a fascist green police state, and the corporations are fighting back. Joining them is an increasing number of rebels angered by the dictatorship of Chairman Rahma. The chairman´s power is absolute and appears strong, but cracks are beginning to show as new weapons are developed by the old corporate powers, foreign alliances begin to make inroads into America´s influence…and strange reports of mutants filter through the government´s censorship. The Little Green Book of Chairman Rahma is both thrilling and thought-provoking, revealing that human greed can poison even the most righteous intentions. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Brick.

She learns how to provide small-town news in a big-hearted way and realizes that life is full of newsworthy moments.
