Life is in two parts: who you were before you met her and who you are after. A documentary crew discover a mysterious young woman living alone in the mountains of West Cork. Strikingly beautiful, she has an extraordinary talent for mimicry, like the famous Australian lyrebird. The crew, fascinated, make her the subject of their story and bestow the nickname upon her. When they leave, they take Lyrebird with them back to the city.

I truly felt that I was immersed in the story and felt all the characters to be so real! It was so well written that I just couldn't stop listening! Aoife's narration was superb! How she can do so many different voices and accents amazed me and when she sang Gaga's song it brought a tear to my eye. Highly, HIGHLY recommend!!!

Tender, magical and captivating - a story of family, friends, and the unlikeliest of romances . . .Read by Susan Lynch and Rupert Degas. What if love was right there in front of you - you just couldn't see it? Elizabeth Egan is too busy for friends. As a reluctant mother to her sister Saoirse's young son Luke and with her own business to run, every precious moment is made to count.

I didn't really know what to expect when I pre-ordered this book, I'm a newer viewer of Melanie's but absolutely LOVE all of the videos I've seen so far! In saying that, any expectation I did have was blown away!! I learned so much from this book and it was written so well and so witty! I cried and broke my heart laughing, true Irish girl with Irish humour!! Read amazingly too! I loved every minute!!! You MUST by this book and listen to it immediately!! I am so grateful to have listened to it :) Thank you Melanie!

For some people, silence is a weapon. For Mallory "Mouse" Dodge, it's a shield. Growing up, she learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it's been four years since her nightmare ended, she's beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime. Now, after years of homeschooling with loving adoptive parents, Mallory must face a new milestone - spending her senior year at a public high school.

Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him. Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister's recent death. When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it's unclear who saves whom.

This was one of the best books I've ever read/ listened to and yet I doubt I'l re-listen like I do my other favourites. The characters feel so real to me that I don't think I could live through their pain again but I would never take back that I read it. It helped me understand my own mental illness and suicidal thoughts (which passed a year ago). So important and so lovely. Enjoy.

Eleanor is the new girl in town, and she's never felt more alone. All mismatched clothes, mad red hair and chaotic home life, she couldn't stick out more if she tried. Then she takes the seat on the bus next to Park. Quiet, careful and - in Eleanor's eyes - impossibly cool, Park's worked out that flying under the radar is the best way to get by. Slowly, steadily, through late-night conversations and an ever-growing stack of mix tapes, Eleanor and Park fall in love. They fall in love the way you do the first time, when you're 16, and you have nothing and everything to lose.

How to Be Like is a "character biography" series: biographies that also draw out important lessons from the life of their subjects. In this new book - by far the most exhaustive in the series - Pat Williams tackles one of the most influential people in recent history. While many recent biographies of Walt Disney have reveled in the negative, this audiobook takes an honest but positive look at the man behind the myth. For the first time, the book pulls together all the various strands of Disney's life into one straightforward, easy-to-listen-to tale.
