              Over two and a half years on the New York Times bestseller list and winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the stunningly beautiful and captivating story about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France during World War II--now available from Encore! Marie...-Laure lives in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where her father works. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure's reclusive great uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum's most valuable and dangerous jewel. In a mining town in Germany, Werner Pfennig, an orphan, grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find that brings them news and stories from places they have never seen or imagined. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments and is enlisted to use his talent to track down the resistance. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Doerr's stunning sense of physical detail and gorgeous metaphors (San Francisco Chronicle) are dazzling. Ten years in the writing, a National Book Award finalist, All the Light We Cannot See is a magnificent, deeply moving novel from a writer whose sentences never fail to thrill (Los Angeles Times).

              The Impossible First (Audio CD / Audio, Unabridged)

              Colin O'Brady's awe-inspiring memoir recounts his triumphant recovery from a tragic accident and his gripping 932-mile crossing of the landmass of Antarctica solo, unsupported, and human powered--the first to accomplish this extraordinary feat. Prior to December 2018, no individu...al had ever crossed the landmass of Antarctica alone and without any outside assistance. Yet Colin O'Brady was determined to do just that, even if, upon taking the first steps of what was to be a nearly two-month journey, he had his doubts. He was compelled by a curiosity for the unknown, his own competitive instincts, and the encouragement of his wife. His challenge was made even more intense by a head-to-head battle that emerged with British polar adventurer Captain Louis Rudd--also striving to be the first. On skis, pulling a sled that at first weighed 375 pounds, in complete isolation and through a succession of whiteouts, storms, and a series of near disasters--O'Brady persevered. Somewhere in the vast white landscape was Rudd. The Impossible First is the story of O'Brady's spectacular, record-breaking journey across the continent and it is the story of the journey that led him to this endeavor. After a burn accident in his early twenties, he was told he might never walk again. From the depths of that crisis, he fought his way back and went on to set three mountaineering world records. With Everest and the tallest peaks on each continent already conquered, he felt driven to further explore his potential, which now brought him to this historic Antarctic challenge. His triumph over adversity and his stunning dedication have inspired millions. Set against the backdrop of one of the most extreme environments on earth, The Impossible First reveals how anyone can reject limits, overcome immense obstacles, and discover what matters most.

              How Babies Sleep: The Gentle, Science-Based Method to Help Your Baby Sleep Through the Night (Audio CD / Audio)

              Discover the best baby sleep method--gentle, science-backed, and based on the latest Nobel Prize-winning research--that shows you how to get your baby to sleep through the night naturally.Sleep--or the lack of it--is one of the most crucial issues for new parents. Newborn babies ...typically wake every two to three hours, and there's nothing bleary-eyed, exhausted parents want more than a night of uninterrupted sleep. But while there's plenty of advice out there, there is nothing that's based on the latest cutting-edge research about sleep--until now. In How Babies Sleep, Sofia Axelrod, PhD--neuroscientist, sleep consultant, and mother of two--introduces the first baby sleep method that is truly rooted in the science of sleep. After having her first child, Axelrod realized that the typical baby sleep advice conflicted with what she was finding in her mentor's Nobel Prize-winning sleep lab. She developed her transformative method based on the latest discoveries about our body's circadian clock and how it is disturbed by light and other external stimuli. After seeing incredible results with her own babies, she has since counseled countless families in her groundbreaking method--which works with babies' needs and helps little ones learn to self-soothe, fall asleep more easily, and stay asleep through the night. You'll discover helpful tips that work, and learn: why using a red lightbulb (instead of a regular one) in the nursery at night can minimize wakings; why the age-old advice don't wake a sleeping baby isn't true; how to create a healthy routine; how to sleep train gently with minimal crying (under two minutes); and so much more in this revolutionary and effective book that will help both you and your baby enjoy a peaceful night's sleep.

              This rich, moving, and lyrical debut novel is to Syria what The Kite Runner was to Afghanistan; the story of two girls living eight hundred years apart-a modern-day Syrian refugee seeking safety and a medieval adventurer apprenticed to a legendary mapmaker-places today's headline...s in the sweep of history, where the pain of exile and the triumph of courage echo again and again. It is the summer of 2011, and Nour has just lost her father to cancer. Her mother, a cartographer who creates unusual, hand-painted maps, decides to move Nour and her sisters from New York City back to Syria to be closer to their family. But the country Nour's mother once knew is changing, and it isn't long before protests and shelling threaten their quiet Homs neighborhood. When a shell destroys Nour's house and almost takes her life, she and her family are forced to choose: stay and risk more violence or flee as refugees across seven countries of the Middle East and North Africa in search of safety. As their journey becomes more and more challenging, Nour's idea of home becomes a dream she struggles to remember and a hope she cannot live without. More than eight hundred years earlier, Rawiya, sixteen and a widow's daughter, knows she must do something to help her impoverished mother. Restless and longing to see the world, she leaves home to seek her fortune. Disguising herself as a boy named Rami, she becomes an apprentice to al-Idrisi, who has been commissioned by King Roger II of Sicily to create a map of the world. In his employ, Rawiya embarks on an epic journey across the Middle East and the north of Africa where she encounters ferocious mythical beasts, epic battles, and real historical figures. A deep immersion into the richly varied cultures of the Middle East and North Africa, The Map of Salt and Stars follows the journeys of Nour and Rawiya as they travel along identical paths across the region eight hundred years apart, braving the unknown beside their companions as they are pulle

              #1 New York Times bestselling author and queen of royal fiction (USA Today) Philippa Gregory brings to life the passionate, turbulent times of seventeenth-century England as seen through the eyes of the country's most famous royal gardener. John Tradescant's fame and skill as a g...ardener are unsurpassed in seventeenth-century England, but it is his clear-sighted honesty and loyalty that make him an invaluable servant. As an informal confidant of Sir Robert Cecil, adviser to King James I, he witnesses the making of history, from the Gunpowder Plot to the accession of King Charles I and the growing animosity between Parliament and court. Tradescant's talents soon come to the attention of the most powerful man in the country, the irresistible Duke of Buckingham, the lover of King Charles I. Tradescant has always been faithful to his masters, but Buckingham is unlike any he has ever known: flamboyant, outrageously charming, and utterly reckless. Every certainty upon which Tradescant has based his life-his love of his wife and children, his passion for his work, his loyalty to his country-is shattered as he follows Buckingham to court, to war, and to the forbidden territories of human love.
