Charlie Trumper's earliest memory is of hearing his grandfather's sales patter from behind his costermonger's barrow. When Grandpa Charlie dies, young Charlie wants nothing more than to follow in his footsteps - his burning ambition is to own a shop that will sell everything: 'The Biggest Barrow in the World'. Charlie's progress from the teeming streets of Whitechapel to the elegance of Chelsea Terrace is only a few miles as the crow flies.

Includes the Mysteries of Light! For many Christians the rosary is a signifcant pathway to prayer and intimacy with God. Indeed, the rosary not only introduces us to the mysteries (life events) of Christ's life, but into the living mystery of Christ himself. In this recording, the St. Anthony Messenger Press staff prays the joyful, sorrowful, glorious and luminous mysteries of the rosary as an aid for your prayer. Each mystery begins with a Scripture verse and/or meditation.

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Where the Light Gets In by Lucy Dillon. 'You know those cracks in your heart, Lorna, where things didn’t work out, but you picked yourself up and carried on? That’s where the fear gets out. And where the light gets in.' It was Betty, defiant to the end, who sent Lorna back to Longhampton. If Lorna’s learned one thing from Betty, it’s that courage is something you paint on like red lipstick, even when you’re panicking inside. And right now, with the keys to the town’s gallery in her hand, Lorna feels about as courageous as Betty’s anxious little dachshund trembling beside her.

The Spanish House is a mixture of designs, Georgian, Gothic and Moorish, as if whoever started it had simply got bored. It has long been known as an architectural folly to locals, and is now nearly derelict to boot. When its reclusive owner dies intestate, the Spanish House is left to his city-dwelling niece. For Isabel, recently widowed, the house is a potential lifeline - the only hope she has of providing for her two children without having to sell her most treasured possession.

Ten years later Emma has finally rediscovered the joy in life...until Aiden returns.

Tragic, thrilling, harrowing, sinister, intriguing, challenging and another book sadly portraying the horrors of evil and contolling behaviour. looking forward to hearing more narrations by Joanne Froggatt.

Whilst listening to chapter 36, I was sad to see there was so little left to hear. well tied up and ended all the same. Funny, Romantic, Nostalgic and at the same time very Relatable. Thank you!

This audio book was the last straw and I was willing to give it a go. I soon found myself thinking about which route to walk each day and for how long. Without a second thought I was also drinking more water and making this audio the key in living a new healthier lifestyle. It is important I listen to as much of it as I can each night. Whilst sleeping deeply my dreams continued to process events of my day and not focus on the words narrated.
