Rose Mae Lolley is a fierce and dirty girl, long-suppressed under flowery skirts and bow-trimmed ballet flats. As ´´Mrs. Ro Grandee´´, she´s trapped in a marriage that´s thick with love and sick with abuse. Her true self has been bound in the chains of marital bliss in rural Texas, letting ´´Ro´´ make eggs, iron shirts, and take her punches. She seems doomed to spend the rest of her life battered outside by her husband and inside by her former self, until fate throws her in the path of an airport gypsy - one who shares her past and knows her future. The tarot cards foretell that Rose´s beautiful, abusive husband is going to kill her. Unless she kills him first. Hot-blooded Rose Mae escapes from under Ro´s perky compliance and emerges with a gun and a plan to beat the hand she´s been dealt. Following messages that her long-missing mother has left hidden for her in graffiti and behind paintings, Rose and her dog Gretel set out from Amarillo, Texas, back to her hometown of Fruiton, Alabama, and then on to California, unearthing a host of family secrets as she goes. Running for her life, she realizes that she must face her past in order to overcome her fate---death by marriage---and become a girl who is strong enough to save herself from the one who loves her best. Backseat Saints will dazzle listeners with a fresh and heartwrenching portrayal of the lengths a mother will go to right the wrongs she´s created, and how far a daughter will go to escape the demands of forgiveness. With the seed of a minor character from her popular best-seller Gods in Alabama, Jackson has built a whole new story full of her trademark sly wit, endearingly off-kilter characters, and utterly riveting plot twists. 1.

On the night of the Parkhurst ball, someone had a scandalous tryst in the library. Was it Lord Canby, with the maid, on the divan? Or Miss Fairchild, with a rake, against the wall? Perhaps the butler did it. All Charlotte Highwood knows is this: It wasn´t her. But rumors to the contrary are buzzing. Unless she can discover the lovers´ true identity, she´ll be forced to marry Piers Brandon, Lord Granville - the coldest, most arrogantly handsome gentleman she´s ever had the misfortune to embrace. When it comes to emotion, the man hasn´t got a clue. But as they set about finding the mystery lovers, Piers reveals a few secrets of his own. The oh, so proper marquess can pick locks, land punches, tease with sly wit, and melt a woman´s knees with a single kiss. The only thing he guards more fiercely than Charlotte´s safety is the truth about his dark past. Their passion is intense. The danger is real. Soon Charlotte´s feeling torn. Will she risk all to prove her innocence? Or surrender it to a man who´s sworn to never love? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carmen Rose.

Ever since he was small, John Robison had longed to connect with other people. But by the time he was a teenager, his odd habits, including an inclination to blurt out non sequiturs, avoid eye contact, dismantle radios, and dig five-foot holes, had earned him the label ´´social deviant´´. No guidance came from his mother or his father. It was no wonder he gravitated to machines, which could, at least, be counted on. After fleeing his parents and dropping out of high school, his savant-like ability to visualize electronic circuits landed him a gig with KISS. Later, he drifted into a ´´real´´ job, as an engineer for a major toy company. But the higher Robison rose in the company, the more he had to pretend to be ´´normal´´ and do what he simply couldn´t: communicate. It was not until he was 40 that an insightful therapist told him he had the form of autism called Asperger´s syndrome. That understanding transformed the way Robison saw himself - and the world. A born storyteller, Robison takes you inside the head of a boy teachers and other adults regarded as ´´defective´´. He also provides a fascinating reverse angle on the younger brother he left at the mercy of their nutty parents: the boy who would later change his name to Augusten Burroughs. Ultimately, this is the story of Robison´s journey from his world into ours, and his new life as a husband, father, and successful small business owner. It´s a strange, sly, indelible account, sometimes alien, yet always deeply human. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Deakins.
