In the latest installment of the Dalai Lama's Cat series, His Holiness' Cat ('HHC') is on a mission: to think less, to experience more, to live in the moment. She soon learns the proper phrase for this: being mindful, or a concept better known to her as the power of meow. What ensues is a journey to discover her own true nature, to gain a deeper understanding of her mind, and to experience life's greatest joy: the here and now.

So mesmerising in tone is David's tale about HHC, the most beautiful being that ever lived, I have been enraptured be her adventures in McLeod Ganj and all she contacts. My mind has opened wide to let I. As much Buddhist thought and practice as possible! Thank you David! I await in eager anticipation of another in the series.

The Dalai Lama's cat is back - older, a bit wiser and as curious as ever. In this audiobook, the Dalai Lama sets for his lovable feline companion the task of investigating the art of purring. Whether it's the humorous insights gained from a visiting Ivy League Psychology Professor, the extraordinary research of a world-famous biologist, or the life-changing revelations of a mystical yogi, His Holiness's cat encounters a wealth of wisdom about happiness.

I loved The Dalai Lamas Cat and now this The Art of Purring. I am fast becoming addicted to the gentle lull of David Michie guiding my meditations. Listening to him narrate these delightful tales is a meditation in itself!

After 20 years spent mastering the art of dressmaking at couture houses in Paris, Tilly Dunnage returns to the small Australian town she was banished from as a child. She plans only to check on her ailing mother and leave. But Tilly decides to stay, and though she is still an outcast, her lush, exquisite dresses prove irresistible to the prim women of Dungatar.

I loved the story beautifully narrated by Rachel Griffiths who brought to life a township of characters. Her voice created images of luxurious fabrics and vivid descriptions of the Haute Couture Tilly brought to the old country town. It was brilliant!

A story of desperation, resolution and small-town prejudice played out against the blistering extremes of life on the land. Amid the worst drought to ravage Australia in a century, a farmer turns his gun on his family and then himself. As questions mount and suspicion casts a long shadow over the parched town, specialist investigator Aaron Falk is forced to confront the community that rejected him 20 years earlier.

Gripping storyline told with a wonderful voice telling us the story of an old country town in the aftermath of two two tragedies, one recent and one historical.
