Jules, her sister Joanne, and her brother Andrew all grew up in the same household - but their experiences growing up have made them all very different people. Now, as adults with children of their own, they are all faced with the question of what to do to help their parents, who insist on maintaining the upscale lifestyle they´re accustomed to despite their mounting debts. A deft exploration of the ever-shifting covenants between parents and children, Things Unsaid is a ferocious tale of family love, dysfunction, and sense of duty over 40 years. Told from each family member´s point of view, the complexity of the bond between parents and children evokes highly charged emotions with little space for the characters to breathe. Things Unsaid is a mesmerizing tale of how difficult it is to escape parental bonds and the devastating toll that previous generations can have on their children. Are children obligated to their parents at all costs? There are no heroes or enemies, just a portrait of an American family. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sara K. Sheckells.

The unconsidered life is not worth living. - Socrates. Thinking about life, what it means and what it holds in store does not have to be a despondent experience, but rather can be enlightening and uplifting. A life truly worth living is one that is informed and considered so a degree of philosophical insight into the inevitabilities of the human condition is inherently important and such an approach will help us to deal with real personal dilemmas. This book is an accessible, lively, and thought-provoking series of linked commentaries, based on A.C. Grayling´s ´´The Last Word´´ column in the Guardian. Its aim is not to persuade readers to accept one particular philosophical point of view or theory, but to help us consider the wonderful range of insights which can be drawn from an immeasurably rich history of philosophical thought. Concepts covered include courage, love, betrayal, ambition, cruelty, wisdom, passion, beauty, and death. This will be a wonderfully stimulating listen and act as an invaluable guide as to what is truly important in living life, whether facing success, failure, justice, wrong, love, loss or any of the other profound experience life throws out. 1.
