Will she be the Society´s salvation... or its downfall? The black-ops government agency called Sigma broke Justin Delgado, trained his psionic talent, and turned him into a killer. Then he escaped and joined the Society, an underground resistance movement of psions determined to use their talents to bring Sigma down. Competent, cold, and cruelly efficient, he´s the best operative the Society has, a legend among the psions who fight a shadow war against an enemy that owns the courts, the press, and the police. Feared even by his own teammates, hunted by the government, and too damaged to feel anything but clinical rage, he is utterly alone - until he meets Rowan. When Rowan Price stumbles across Delgado´s team in an abandoned house, he is assigned to make contact with her, bring her in, and keep her alive - because Rowan is one of the most powerful psychics the resistance has ever encountered. If the government gets its hands on her, she could very well mean the downfall of the resistance, because nobody, not even Rowan, is quite sure how far her talents extend. The Society will welcome Rowan, if she can stay alive long enough to join them. Unfortunately, there´s a traitor buried in the ranks. If the Society goes down, Rowan is at risk. God alone knows what Delgado will do to keep her safe, because Rowan is fast becoming the only thing in the world he cares about...

The American Revolution is replete with seminal moments that every American learns in school, from the ´´shot heard ´round the world´´ to the Declaration of Independence, but the events that led up to the fighting at Lexington & Concord were borne out of 10 years of division between the British and their American colonies over everything from colonial representation in governments to taxation, the nature of searches, and the quartering of British regulars in private houses. Over 230 years later, it´s hard to imagine just how turbulent the post-Revolution era was for the new United States of America, and the Society of the Cincinnati was emblematic of that. With prominent Founding Fathers like George Washington and Alexander Hamilton leading the Society of the Cincinnati, comprised of Revolutionary War veterans, it should come as little surprise that the Society was both powerful and controversial. One of the reasons that the Society of the Cincinnati was able to endure is that its founders designed it to. Though they originally founded the Society for themselves, they also knew that they would not live forever. They wanted the memories of their shared hardships and triumphs to be shared by their descendants and thus made the Cincinnati not just an organization for themselves but one in which their sons could inherit membership, so long as they proved worthy of the ideas upon which the organization was founded. While this sounds like a simple, even quaint, concept in the 21st century, it was still somewhat controversial in the wake of the Revolution. This caused controversy and consternation among many, both those who were part of the Society and those who were not, because some feared that the officers were creating a sort of feudal system of knights, lords and ladies, similar to that which the rank and file in the nation had just fought and died to overthrow. Others feared that the Society, made up as it was of some of the most powerf 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tracey Norman.

It was known as the Living Grave: A remote Hawaiian peninsula called Kalaupapa, housing the largest settlement for leprosy patients in the United States. Once it had been a forbidding place of exile, inhabited by thousands of the disease´s victims who had been removed from their families and confined against their will, far away from a society that feared and misunderstood their condition. When Brooke Jarvis came across a posting for a job in Kalaupapa, tending to the needs of the handful of remaining patients, it seemed like an impossibly exotic opportunity for a college student. But what she found there was both more remarkable and more familiar than what she had imagined. When We Are Called to Part is the absorbing, affecting, and often funny story of life in the last years of a rapidly vanishing community. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brooke Jarvis.
