(Amadeus). Few singers have touched as many hearts as has Andrea Bocelli. This golden-voiced tenor has sung to sold-out audiences all over the world, and his legions of admirers have included popes, presidents, and monarchs as well as some of the greatest stars of classical and popular music. In The Music of Silence , Bocelli tells his own story in the form of an autobiographical novel, naming his alter ego "Amos Bardi." He writes of a loving family that encouraged his musical gifts from an early age, and of the dedication that led to his professional breakthrough and his meteoric rise to stardom. The first edition of Bocelli's memoir was published in 1999 and focused on the success and difficulties at the beginnings of his astonishing career. This newly revised and updated edition is an even deeper and more intimate analysis of his life, loves, and losses the result of wisdom gained from the increased personal and artistic maturity gained in the subsequent decade of his life. This book will touch and captivate all Bocelli fans and those who admire perseverance in the face of great challenges.

Lucy and Charlie Tuttle agree on one thing: they’re committed to each other for life. Trouble is, neither of them expected life to look like this. While Charlie retired early, Lucy is devoted to a long-term career . . . until the day she has no choice. Forced to retire from her position as music educator in a small Midwestern K-8 school, Lucy can only watch helplessly as the program her father started years ago disintegrates before her eyes. As the music fades and a chasm separates her from the passion of her heart, Lucy wonders if her faith’s song has gone silent, too. The musical score of her life seems to be missing all the notes. When a simple misstep threatens to silence Lucy forever, a young boy and his soundless mother change the way she sees—and hears—everything.

After her high school was featured on national TV for having the highest number of pregnant teens in the United States, Daleen Berry married a coal miner who kept her barefoot and pregnant. By age twenty-one she had four children. Sister of Silence is the amazing story of Daleen's personal battle to forgive herself and let go of the shame and guilt that arose after years of sexual, physical and psychological abuse that began when she was just thirteen. Follow her courageous journey from California to Wyoming to West Virginia, as Daleen evolved from being a teen mom and abused wife who nearly killed herself, her three daughters and her unborn son, into an award-winning journalist determined to shatter the silence that destroys women and children's lives. Ken Lanning, a retired special agent with the FBI, wrote the foreword. He said this "story is ultimately one of survival and hope for victims." Lanning taught at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Va., for twenty years, and is a founding member of the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children (APSAC). After interviewing Daleen for an hour-long segment that aired March 8, 2011 on The Bob Edwards Show, Sirius XM Radio Host and Author Bob Edwards had this to say: "Almost never is an interview subject so open or so candid about the most intimate details of the most horrible moments of her life. Daleen is a very brave women and I hope her story will help other girls and women . . . Daleen you are a magnificent storyteller." Jacquelyn Campbell, Ph.D. RN, a renowned advocate against domestic violence, is a professor in the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing with a joint appointment in the Bloomberg School of Public Health. She says Sister of Silence "is an inspirational memoir. It's a wake-up call for all of us to help end the silence, to make it easier for our sisters to speak up when this happens to them, and to confront the violence against women and girls!" Since 1980, Dr. Campbell has been one of the nation's leading researchers and was the principal investigator in ten CDC, NIJ and NIH grants involving violence against women and women's health. She recently added Sister of Silence to her 2011 student reading list and invited Ms. Berry to speak to her students at Johns Hopkins University. Author Asra Q. Nomani (Standing Alone) had this to say: "In Sister of Silence, author Daleen Berry gently guides us through the dark corridors of her life, so that we can emerge in the light, as she has courageously done, with a sense of hope, authenticity and courage. Sister of Silence is a brave book, written from the heart. It's a must read for the brave-hearted." Hilda Heady, an expert in rural health, said Sister of Silence is a very important book because it will honor "women everywhere, especially the resilience of rural women and their very human spirit." Readers of Sister of Silence say they cannot put the book down, and have thanked Daleen for being their voice, and having the courage to put into words what they couldn't say themselves. Ms. Berry is a national expert on domestic violence who has written for newspapers in Maryland, Texas, California and West Virginia. She is a freelance reporter who has written about mothers who kill their children for The Daily Beast. Among her many awards for writing, editing and public speaking are three from the Maryland-Delaware-DC and West Virginia Press Associations. Her student staff also received a record number of awards from the Society of Collegiate Journalists while under her leadership. Sister of Silence was awarded first-place in the West Virginia Writer's Competition.

The contributions in this volume focus on the ways in which silence and music relate, contemplate each other and provide new avenues for addressing and gaining understanding of various realms of human endeavour. The book maps out this little-explored aspect of the sonic arena with the intention of defining the breadth of scope and to introduce interdisciplinary paths of exploration as a way forward for future discourse. The contributions reveal that unexpected concepts and ways of thinking emerge from looking at sound in relation to its antithesis, encompassing not just Western art traditions, but the relationship between music, silence, the human psyche and sociological trends - ultimately, providing deeper understanding of the elemental places both music and silence hold within world philosophies and fundamental states of being.

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: San Francisco Chronicle, The Christian Science Monitor, Kansas City Star. A profoundly moving and deeply personal memoir by the co-host of National Public Radio’s flagship program All Things Considered. While exploring the hidden conversation on race unfolding throughout America in the wake of President Obama’s election, Michele Norris discovered that there were painful secrets within her own family that had been willfully withheld. These revelations—from her father’s shooting by a Birmingham police officer to her maternal grandmother’s job as an itinerant Aunt Jemima in the Midwest—inspired a bracing journey into her family’s past, from her childhood home in Minneapolis to her ancestral roots in the Deep South. The result is a rich and extraordinary family memoir—filled with stories that elegantly explore the power of silence and secrets—that boldly examines racial legacy and what it means to be an American.
