Experience the sultry Southern atmosphere of Atlanta and the magic of the Carolina Lowcountry in this funny and poignant tale of one audacious woman’s quest to find the love she deserves, from New York Times bestselling author Dorothea Benton Frank.
Leslie Anne Greene Carter is The Last Original Wife among her husband Wesley’s wildly successful Atlanta social set. His cronies have all traded in the mothers of their children they promised to love and cherish—’til death did them part—for tanned and toned young Barbie brides.
If losing the social life and close friends she adored wasn’t painful enough, a series of setbacks shake Les’s world and push her to the edge. She’s had enough of playing the good wife to a husband who thinks he’s doing her a favor by keeping her around. She’s not going to waste another minute on people she doesn’t care to know. Now, she’s going to take some time for herself—in the familiar comforts and stunning beauty of Charleston, her beloved hometown. In her brother’s stately historic home, she’s going to reclaim the carefree girl who spent lazy summers sharing steamy kisses with her first love on Sullivans Island. Along Charleston’s live oak- and palmetto-lined cobblestone streets, under the Lowcountry’s dazzling blue sky, Les will indulge herself with icy cocktails, warm laughter, divine temptation and bittersweet memories. Daring to listen to her inner voice, she will realize what she wants . . . and find the life of which she’s always dreamed.
Told in the alternating voices of Les and Wes, The Last Original Wife is classic Dorothea Benton Frank: an intoxicating tale of family, friendship, self-discovery, and love, that is as salty as a Lowcountry breeze and as invigorating as a dip in Carolina waters on a sizzling summer day.

Sam Thurman and Ethel Lopez of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.
Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam and Ethel will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.
Our Special Guests for tonight's show are Tracy Collins, a United Kingdom, Investigative Journalist who has been investigating the wrongful conviction of the IRP6 case for the past 3 months and Anne Bremner, a well-known Trial Attorney/Legal Analyst.

Broken Life Healed Through Faith, Autobiographical Triumph A true story of inspirational recovery from overwhelming adversity HENDERSON, Ky. - A childhelp.org report says, "Nearly two-thirds of the people in treatment for drug abuse reported being abused as children." As Willie Pringle attests to in his new autobiography, Another-Way: Living to Live Again (published by Trafford Publishing) - written as Supernatural Soldier - victims of child abuse are easily thrown into a pattern of self-destruction which is difficult to overcome. To finally break the pattern of self-destructive behaviors in his life, Pringle surrendered his life to Jesus Christ, a way of life instilled by his parents from an early age. When I trusted God with all my heart and believed in His word like I use to believe in that bottle. God accomplished in my life what I never could in many years of trouble trying all Willie would have done was get drunk. God took in his hands poor broken little Willie afflicted from my childhood and transformed me into a mature and healthy young man. Simply put God took my sorrow and gave me joy He got the whole world in his hands plus little Willie I don't want to be left out. As I discovered in a very dramatic way, happiness and heartache are drawn from the same inner well, and the way we respond to life determines from which cup we choose to drink. In Another-Way, Pringle delivers the powerful and inspirational story of his life, in which he overcame the oppressive memories of suffering abuse as a child and the fears that controlled his life and led him to severe alcoholism. His triumphant recovery shines as an example of how a broken life can be rebuilt through faith. About the Author Willie Pringle was born in Benton Harbor, Michigan where he was raised in the Church of God in Christ faith by both parents. He struggled with substance abuse for a number of years, and has pledged to live a life of sobriety. He lives in Henderson, Kentucky.
