Silent Tears: A Journey of Hope in a Chinese Orphanage by Kay Bratt
Genre(s): Nonfiction, Biographies & Memoirs
rrepressible memories. Vacant eyes. A child being dangled from a third story window. A boy tied to a chair. Children sleeping in layers of clothing to fight off the bitter cold. An infant dying from starvation. Some things your mind will never allow you to forget.
Silent Tears is the true story of the adversity and triumphs one woman faced as she fought against the Chinese bureaucracy to help that country’s orphaned children.
In 2003, Kay Bratt’s life changed dramatically. A wife and mother of two girls in South Carolina, Bratt relocated her family to rural China to support her husband as he took on a new management position for his American employer. Seeking a way to fill her days and overcome the isolation she experienced upon arriving in a foreign country, Bratt began volunteering at the local orphanage. Within months, her simple desire to make use of her time transformed into a heroic crusade to improve the living conditions and minimize the unnecessary deaths of Chinese orphans.
Silent Tears traces the emotional hurdles and daily frustrations faced by Ms. Bratt as she tried to change the social conditions for these marginalized children. The memoir vividly illustrates how she was able to pull from reservoirs of inner strength to pursue her mission day after day, leaving the reader with the resounding message that everyone really can make a difference.

Welcome To The Fishbowl [+digital booklet] by Kenny Chesney
From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
have been a Kenny fan for a very long time. I’ve watched his music grown and change through each album he’s recorded and this one is no exception. The songs on this album are all honest and real. They may not be quite the music you’d expect from Kenny; they’re not all about partying and having fun in the sun. They have messages behind they lyrics that reach beyond the boundaries of “country” music and can reach everyone. His voice is a bit haunting in some of the songs, proof that these songs have meaning to him.
“Time Flies” and “Feel Like A Rockstar” are the only tracks on the album that seem like typical Kenny songs, but the other songs are all great as well. “Always Gonna Be You”, “To Get To You (55th & 3rd)”, and “El Cerrito’s Place” (with Grace Potter’s lovely vocals gracing the background) are all excellent, stand out tracks in my opinion.
It’s a great listen that has something for everyone.
