Audrey is a cow with poetry in her blood, who yearns for the greener pastures beyond Bittersweet Farms. But when Roy the horse tells this bovine dreamer that she is headed for Abbot's War, the slaughter house, Audrey knows that she must leave her home and friends sooner than she ever imagined. With the help of a whole crew of animals and humans alike, Audrey attempts to escape the farm she lives on--and certain death. Cleverly written as an oral account, this unique illustrated tale of an animal on the run, told "to camera", uses over thirty narrative voices, including six humans, four cows, three sheep, two sheep dogs, one pig and a very silly rooster. Full of heart and humor, Audrey (cow) is ultimately a very human story about life and death, friendship, and holding on to one's dreams--based more or less on a true story.

Audrey Hepburn: Biography of Hollywood's Greatest Movie Actress by Sara McEwen Pdf
ABOUT THE BOOK Audrey Hepburn was a rare beauty who managed to be just as graceful and captivating on the inside as she was on the outside. Her lithe dancer's body, large dark eyes and effortlessly chic clothing have made Hepburn a fashion icon for decades, no matter how many other trends may come and go. At the same time, Hepburn's refined and charming personality captured her fans' hearts, and her charity work was an important part of her life up until her final years. With her characteristic and unique blend of tomboy, ballerina and socialite personas, Hepburn worked hard to make her way into the ranks of Hollywood A-listers, but never forgot to stay true to her roots and genuinely care for those in need. After a childhood that was marked with tragedy and hardship, from losing her father to enduring the trials of World War II, Hepburn persevered and quickly became a role model for many people. She showed the world that it was possible to have a blend of poise and playfulness, to be a movie star and a humanitarian at the same time. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK In the late 1980s, however, Hepburn turned her attention to charity work and humanitarian projects. Ever since her own struggles in the war, Hepburn had been focused on UNICEF's efforts, usually by acting as a spokesperson. Now that her movie career was over, Hepburn was able to travel and work firsthand with the struggling and underserved populations of countries such as Ethiopia and Turkey. She traveled the world to help with UNICEF's education programs and relief efforts. Hepburn also used her celebrity to bring attention to the problems of struggling countries and population, solidifying her reputation as, not just a beautiful face, but also as a dedicated and kind-hearted diplomat and humanitarian. In 1992, following a trip to Somalia, Hepburn felt concerned about some strange abdominal pains. When she went to a medical professional, her whole family was stunned to learn that Hepburn had a rare form of abdominal cancer. It had already spread too far for surgery to be successful. Knowing that she was nearing her final days, Hepburn and her family went to Switzerland to spend time together. Hepburn died in her sleep on January 20, 1993, leaving behind not just a family who mourned her beautiful and warm presence, but also a whole world that would miss the generous and inimitable Audrey Hepburn...

That is until the new surgical resident Dr. Daniel Gibson arrives. Dr. Gibson has no idea that Horace's bright and quiet young ward is a surgeon more qualified and ingenuitive than even himself. In order to protect Dr. Croft and his practice from scandal and collapse Nora must learn to play a new and uncomfortable role—that of a proper young lady. But pretense has its limits.
