Audible.com Free book - The Book of the Shepherd
As seen on Twitter today!
From Audible.com: FREE download: The Book of the Shepherd, by Joann Davis, is a timeless story full of life lessons for us all. http://ow.ly/LWKy
The Story of One Simple Prayer, and How It Changed the World
Stone the builder who erects a house that falls on its occupants. Sever the hands of the criminal who pilfers livestock or grain or another's garment. Whip the child who defies an elder. For such is the law and the law must be obeyed.
For generations, these ironclad rules had governed the people. Nobody questioned whether it was right to humiliate a child or execute a murderer. An eye for an eye was the way of the world. But was there another way?
When an antiquarian book is discovered in the disheveled study of an old Vermont farm-house, the house's new owner has the volume translated. The result is The Book of the Shepherd, a timeless story full of life lessons for us all.
Set in a mythical time, in an unnamed land, The Book of the Shepherd tells the tale of a shepherd, Joshua, who is troubled by the harsh code of "an eye for an eye" that governs his world. Called by a dream, the shepherd sets off on a journey to find "the new way"/
Accompanied by Elizabeth, a former slave who is kind and generous, and David, a boy who must learn to walk in new shoes, the shepherd knows that "an age of miracles" will come when the new way is found. But the journey is not without incident. En route to a cave near the Great Inland Sea, the travelers meet a cast of extraordinary characters, including the Storyteller, the Apothecary, the Blind Man, and the Stranger. Each imparts an important lesson that pushes the travelers toward their destiny.
At the cave, Joshua must see if he can bring forth secrets long buried. But he, Elizabeth, and David will also discover that sometimes what we have been searching for has been inside us all along.

Thanks for another free audiobooks! I love it.
Question though for an audible newbie who has a Sansa MP3 player, how do you transfer from Itunes to Sansa? I only know .mp3 transfers through the Library. I tried to convert to .mp3 but drats Audible is .drm :-(
Found the answer, I will try it tomorrow.
Nope you can't transfer audible books from a Mac Itunes to Sansa Fuze. So guess I won't be taking freebies or paying Audible.
