What if you could choose your heaven now? Go on a celestial shopping trip of sorts? Thirty-five-year-old Vivienne does just that, as she lies dying in the ICU; a fatal walk into the path of a truck. In her final week of life, Vivienne treks through the heavens of a priest, a best friend, a homeless child, and a lover who never was. Vivienne´s guardian angel, Noah, who may just be her soul mate, escorts her through selections of heavens and through the confusion Vivienne experiences as she flounders between a doubt of life and the certainty of death. Although her visits to varied afterlives provide peace and beauty, choosing proves not so easy: Vivienne´s love for her young son and her earthly father pull her from her colorful journey - and from her divine love of Noah. The nature of love, the variety and magic of life, unending hope, and the importance of saying goodbye are central to this uplifting tale. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Shannon Kirk.

Alexandra Aldrich, a direct descendant of the famous Astor dynasty, grew up in the servants´ quarters of Rokeby, the 43-room Hudson Valley mansion built by her ancestors. Her childhood was one of bohemian neglect and real privation. But it was fairly stable until the summer of her tenth year, when her father took up with an alluring interloper, Giselle. Alexandra idolized her father, Rokeby´s charismatic lord of misrule, who had attended elite private schools as a child but inherited only landed property, not money. To him, she says, ´´poverty was amusing, a delightful challenge.´´ All of the family´s resources - emotional and financial - went to the maintenance of the Astor house and legacy. If the family had sold the house and its 450 acres, they all would have been able to live comfortably. Instead, Alexandra and her parents lived precariously in the grand house, scavenging for the next meal. Her mother, an icy Polish artist, disguised her maternal indifference by extolling the virtues of independence. Relatives preyed on Alexandra´s low status in the household. Once her father got involved with Giselle, Alexandra´s only stalwart was her affectionate grandmother (whose great-great-grandfather, Nicholas Fish, was a close friend of Alexander Hamilton´s and an executor of his estate). Grandma Claire held Alexandra´s life together with family dinner parties, rides to violin lessons, and snacks after school. But as she grew progressively more debilitated by alcohol, she soon became too frail to provide a safe haven for her granddaughter. Determined to impose order on her anarchic world and prove her worth, Alexandra awoke promptly at six-thirty each morning, adhering to a strict personal regimen of exercise, grooming, and intensive violin practice. With money borrowed from the owner of the local gas station, she did the grocery shopping, occasionally setting aside four dollars to buy herself clean white socks. The betrayal of her father´s flag... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tavia Gilbert. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/harp/003435/bk_harp_003435_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Presley Thurman, a sassy, thirty-something red-head, was looking to reinvent herself. She didn´t allow the fact she was recently fired to bother her - she was ready to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a writer. Presley is a lover of shopping and Starbucks, and even though she sometimes had bad taste in men, she always had great taste in clothes. Not looking back on corporate America, Presley decided to follow her dream. With her feisty nature and a spirit to not ´´sweat the small stuff´´ she was ready to tackle any challenge (even if she had no idea how she would pay the bills). When her friend Trevor offered her a job with his online magazine to interview public figures, she jumped at the chance. However, the new job turned into something unexpected when the U.S. Senator she was slated to write about was murdered - in her home town! Presley was excited - she hadn´t seen so much buzz since the spring sample sale at Saks. She was ready for this adventure, even if it didn´t seem to fit neatly into her life. She couldn´t pass up the opportunity to be in the middle of the buzz. Presley was determined (not to mention curious) to find the killer and write her story. After all, she couldn´t afford her shoe habit without a job and she was certainly not one to shy away from danger. The only thing standing in her way was an old high school fling, Cooper Sands, head of the Senator´s security. He was not actually standing in her way, but because of his good looks, he was the biggest distraction and one she was having the hardest time overcoming. Cooper felt it was too dangerous for Presley to look for a killer and tried to distract her with reliving the past; which Presley found more dangerous than any killer. While she attempted to resist Cooper´s good looks and charm, Presley was able to discover the Senator´s wife, Helen, had been having an affair... with her best friend´s boyfriend! Did Helen kill the Senator? Or was it the Senator´s love of gambling ... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Margie Lenhart.
