As Allison scrambles to help her mom find a way out, she’s given a journal, anonymously, during a visit to her favorite coffee shop. As the pressure to rescue her mom mounts, Allison pours her fears and heartache into the journal. But then the unexplainable happens. The words in the journal, her words, begin to disappear. And new ones fill the empty spaces - words that force her to look at everything she knows about herself in a new light.Ignoring those words could cost her everything...but so could embracing them. ´´I’m a slow reader, but I couldn’t put down The Pages of Her Life.

Patti Page´s music provided a soothing counterpoint to the revolutionary sound of rock n´ roll in the 1950s, incorporating elements of country music into traditional pop songs. From 1948 through 1970 she had nearly 100 records on the Billboard Singles chart, including ´´(How Much Is That) Doggie in the Window´´, ´´Old Cape Cod´´, ´´Allegheny Moon´´, and ´´Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte´´. Page sat down with host Wink Martindale to discuss her personal life, the early days of her career, and her astounding popular success at a time when traditional pop music waned. She embraced new multi-track technology that allowed producers to layer her voice in recordings and provide her own harmonies. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wink Martindale.

Kiss. Marry. Kill. Nineteen-year-old June Eyermann has always known exactly which of her favorite Byronic heroes goes where. She´d kiss moody and possessive Rochester from Jane Eyre and marry prideful but repentant Darcy from Pride and Prejudice, leaving obsessive and spiteful Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights to be chucked off a cliff - but no. She couldn´t leave any of her heroes behind. She lives for her favorite fictional worlds. But June is about to get a serious wake up call when she returns home for the summer after her college freshman year. Stuck somewhere between feeling like a kid again under her parents´ roof and being forced to start acting like an adult with worries about her future career, June looks at the library volunteer position offered to her as a way to keep her sanity for the next few months before she can go back to school. What June doesn´t expect to find at the library is her favorite romantic heroes brought to life-all in the same man. Obstinate, prideful and even a bit rude, Everett Rockford shouldn´t exactly be ´´dating material,´´ even if June´s heart rate accelerates whenever she´s near him. But after discovering his enigmatic past and witnessing a few fiery moments of tenderness, June can´t help but see Rochester, Darcy and even Heathcliff in Everett. If she´s going to make it through the summer without becoming a tragic heroine in her own story, she has to separate the man from the ideals of fiction in her head. Because if there´s one thing she knows about Byronic love stories, it´s that they don´t always end happily ever after. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dawn Huestis.
