Any Ordinary Day
- Blindsides, Resilience and What Happens After the Worst Day of Your Life
- By: Leigh Sales
- Narrated by: Leigh Sales
- Length: 6 hrs and 29 mins
As a journalist, Leigh Sales often encounters people experiencing the worst moments of their lives in the full glare of the media. But one particular string of bad news stories - and a terrifying brush with her own mortality - sent her looking for answers about how vulnerable each of us is to a life-changing event. What are our chances of actually experiencing one? What do we fear most and why? And when the worst does happen, what comes next? In this wise and layered audiobook, Leigh talks intimately with people who've faced the unimaginable, from terrorism to natural disaster to simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

A different Perspective
I loved your book Leigh . You were very brave to share your private life; I hope you have an easier year.
It was so interesting to listen to you sharing your stories of the tragedies different people had experienced Leigh, and how they had overcome their sadness and adversaries to find a way to cope with their devastating losses, terror , PTS etc.
I sent this book to my sister-in-law so that she won’t be the only one saying ‘Why Me’

The Tailor's Girl
- By: Fiona McIntosh
- Narrated by: Madeleine Leslay
- Length: 15 hrs and 47 mins
From the bustling streets of post-Great War London to the idyllic 1920s Sussex countryside, this is a breathtaking story of passion and persistence from a phenomenal Australian storyteller about how true love can overcome incredible odds, even in the most extraordinary circumstances. A humble soldier, known only as "Jones", wakes in hospital with no recollection of his past. The few fleeting fragments of memory he glimpses are horrifying moments from the battlefield at Ypres.

I loved this story . I think Madeleine Leslay is amazing . She has a great voice . I really enjoy Fiona McIntosh’s books.
Fiona must do a lot of research to make her characters so believable and interesting. This is one of her best .
