What was the likelihood my adopted daughter would have my father´s hazel eyes and my mother´s mental illness? In this fiercely candid memoir, Dr. Pruchno, a scientist widely acclaimed for her research on mental illness and families, shows how mental illness threatened to destroy her own family. Not once, but twice. As a child, she didn´t understand her mother´s episodes of crippling sadness or whirlwind activity. As a mother, she feared her daughter Sophie would follow in the footsteps of the grandmother Sophie never knew. Unraveling the mysteries of her mother´s and daughter´s illnesses, Pruchno fought to preserve her marriage and protect her son. But it was not until she came to terms with her own secrets that she truly understood the destructive and pervasive effects mental illness has on families. Surrounded by Madness is transforming. It will empower families to stop hiding and start talking when mental illness strikes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gabra Zackman.

Mosby´s Rangers: A Record of the Operations of ...

Mosby´s Rangers were some of the most feared Confederate troops of the American Civil War. Under the command of Col. John S. Mosby, they executed small raids behind Union lines, raiding at will and then vanishing quickly into the countryside to remain undetected. Formally known as the 43rd Battalion, Virginia Cavalry, they were formed after the Partisan Ranger Act of 1862. By the summer of 1864, Mosby had around 400 men at his disposal in six cavalry companies and one artillery company. Their success led to the area around Fauquier and Loudoun counties becoming known as ´´Mosby´s Confederacy´´, due to the grip that he and his men held on the area.James Joseph Williamson was a private who fought under Mosby from April, 1863, through until the end of the war. He records in fascinating detail the activity of Mosby and his men from their companies´ organization until the moment that they were disbanded. Williamson provides brilliant insight into the campaigns that Mosby´s men fought, how they were organized, who led them, and the difficulties they faced, as well as their greatest victories.The effectiveness of Mosby and his small band can be seen in these two statements: General Lee said that Mosby was ´´zealous, bold, and skillful, and with very small resources he has accomplished a great deal.´´ While on the Union side, ´´General at one point reported that seventeen thousand of his men were engaged in keeping Mosby from attacking his weak points, and thus away from active service on the firing line. Finally it was not safe to send despatches by a courier unless a regiment was sent along to guard him.´´Yet, after the war, Grant held no animosity against his former foe and stated, ´´I have come to know Mosby personally and somewhat intimately. He is a different man entirely from what I supposed. He is able and thoroughly honest and truthful. There were probably but few men in the South who could have commanded successfully a separate detachment 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Perkins.

Cleary, North Carolina, is a sleepy mountain town, the kind of place where criminal activity is usually limited to parking violations. Not so, lately. Four women have disappeared from Cleary over the past two years. And there´s always a blue ribbon left near the spot where each of the women was last seen. There are no bodies, no other clues, and no suspicion as to who their abductor might be. And now, another woman has disappeared without a trace. It is to this backdrop that Lilly Martin returns to close the sale of her mountain cabin, marking the end of her turbulent eight-year marriage to Dutch Burton, Cleary´s chief of police. Dutch´s reluctance to let her go isn´t Lilly´s only obstacle. As she´s trying to outrun a snowstorm, her car skids on the icy road and strikes a man. She recognizes the injured man as Ben Tierney, whom she´d met the previous summer. They´re forced to wait out the storm in the cabin, but as the hours of their confinement mount, Lilly begins to wonder if the greatest danger to her safety isn´t the blizzard outside, but the mysterious man right beside her. Is Ben Tierney the feared abductor? Or is he who he claims to be...her rescuer from harm and from the tragedy that haunts her? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephen Lang.

Former hedge fund manager, billionaire Cris De Niro and his new counter-terrorism firm, The Watchman Agency, just prevented a nuclear attack on the city of Las Vegas, but not without cost. Charley Santappia, the Agency´s vice president of operations sacrificed his life to save the city. While at Santappia´s funeral, a remorse-filled De Niro announces to his shocked staff that he needs to decide whether he wants to continue with their mission. In front of Santappia´s coffin, the squad leaders of The Watchman Agency´s paramilitary arm, ARCHANGEL, decide to raise one last toast to their fallen commander. They´re joined by a ´´small man dressed in black´´ who is something of a legend to members of the Special Forces. A Delta Forces hero turned rogue operative, respected as much as he was feared...enter Scipio, a very different type of warrior. But could he be the one to replace Santappia? Back at The Watchman Agency´s headquarters, undercover CIA agent Felix Salazar shows up with a problem he brings to his old boss from Langley, now the Agency´s V.P. of intelligence services, Michelle Wang. Salazar is convinced that Venezuela has just received a shipment of Iranian medium-range missiles and he thinks he´s tracked the missiles to a Venezuelan port closest to the United States. De Niro and company decide to get involved, sending Salazar back to Venezuela to investigate with a fire team from ARCHANGEL as backup. There is also more strange activity at the border. Soldiers of Tuco Ramirez´s Pacifico Drug Cartel have been infiltrating en masse onto the Tohono O´odham reservation. This time, Bryan Ahiga head of the legendary DHS/ICE Shadow Wolves doesn´t have his border patrol unit to patrol the tribal lands, so he asks De Niro if his team could lend a hand. At the same time, De Niro is contacted by his old friend, David Nicholls. The usually incorrigible British playboy is frantic. He just found out that his dear friends were kidnap 1.
