It is December; Christmas is approaching and the magic of one of Europe’s most beautiful cities beckons. A father looks for himself in the past, struggling to deal with a recent divorce, his teenage son in tow. A single, selfless mother accompanies her only daughter and friends for a weekend-long bachelorette party. And a husband treats his wife to a birthday weekend away, somehow heightening her anxieties and insecurities about age, desire, and motherhood. During their brief stay in the city, the confusions and contradictions inherent in their relationships assert themselves in unexpected ways, forcing each couple into a sometimes painful reassessment and a new awareness of the price that love demands. As these people brush against each other in the squares, museums, and parks of Amsterdam, their lives are transfigured in the winter light as they encounter the complexities of love in a city that challenges what has gone before. Tender and humane, elevating the ordinary to something timeless and important, The Light of Amsterdam is a novel of compassion and rare dignity. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Lee.

Welcome to Amsterdam, one of the World´s most popular cities. Her canals and liberal politics draw in over 4 million international visitors each year, but what makes her one of the World´s top destinations? Socially diverse with an established coffee shop culture and internationally renowned Red Light District, her history, culture and arts create a memorable city experience. The Compete Amsterdam Guide: Whilst you can obviously get a good feel for a city´s history and culture from a guidebook, it requires effort as you read your way around each street and attraction.

Information includes how to get around, where to eat and drink, six great things you have to do before you leave and a lot more. The Hotspots: This section consists of 10 entertaining and informative bite-sized audio guides to some of the city´s most popular attractions. From Dam Square to Anne Frank´s House each sight lasts no longer than five minutes - it´s up to you to choose what, when and where. 60 Minute Stroll: If you´re looking to get a better feel for the city´s layout then take a stroll. Weaving through the city´s historic and cultural centre, taking in local hangouts and histories on the way, this is city sightseeing when only an hour is enough. 1. Language: English.

Historical and cultural walking tours of Europe´s finest cities... Relaxed and friendly, the smallest of Europe´s major capital cites feels more like a village but its history is controversial, fascinating, and often bloody. Our tour starts at Anne Frank´s house and then goes on via the beautiful Westerkerk church to the city´s simple but moving monument to its gay residents who have suffered over the years. Further on, we´ll explain the meaning of the XXX that you´ll see everywhere and reveal where the term Dutch courage comes from. As we pick out the other sites, such as Dam Square, we´ll tell you about why this unique city looks the way it does and what is being done to preserve it so you´ll have a sense of the real Amsterdam as it is today - not just the picture-postcard image. As you stroll through the flower market, we´ll tell you why it is that tulips are associated with Amsterdam and why, despite his talent and fame, the city´s most famous painter led such a tragic life. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Simon Harry Brooke.
