  • From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Four Winds, Angel Falls is “a tearjerker . . . about the triumphs of family” (Detroit Free Press). When Mikaela Campbell, beloved wife and mother, falls into a coma, it is up to her husband, Liam, to hold the family together and care for their grieving, frightened children. Doctors tell Liam not to expect a recovery, but he believes that love can accomplish what medical science cannot. Daily he sits at Mikaela’s bedside, telling her stories of the precious life they have built together, hoping against hope that she will wake up. But then he discovers evidence of his wife’s secret past: a first marriage to movie star Julian True. Desperate to bring Mikaela back at any cost, Liam knows that he must turn to Julian for help. But will that choice cost Liam his wife, his family, and everything he holds dear? One of Kristin Hannah’s most moving novels, Angel Falls is a poignant and unforgettable portrait of marriage and commitment, of an ordinary man who dares to risk everything in the name of love.

  • Genre : Fiction
  • #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts explores the wilds of the Grand Tetons—and the mysteries of love, murder, and madness—in this engrossing and passionate novel. The sole survivor of a brutal crime back East, Reece Gilmore settles in Angel’s Fall, Wyoming—temporarily, at least—and takes a job at a local diner. One day, while hiking in the mountains, she peers through her binoculars and sees a couple arguing on the bank of the churning Snake River. And suddenly, the man is on top of the woman, his hands around her throat... By the time Reece reaches a gruff loner named Brody farther down the trail, the pair is gone. And when authorities comb the area where she saw the attack, they find no trace that anyone was even there. No one in Angel’s Fall seems to believe Reece—except Brody, despite his seeming impatience and desire to keep her at arm’s length. When a series of menacing events makes it clear that someone wants her out of the way, Reece must put her trust in Brody—and herself—to find out if there is a killer in Angel’s Fall, before it’s too late.

  • Don’t be fooled by the soft fairy tale beginning of this work, When an Angel Falls, as it offers you another theory on how we all came into existence. Because of the current calamitous state of the world that suffers from an obvious racial divide and a drastic decline in moral fortitude, there is a clear distinction between good and evil. From the Kremlin in Russia that undermined the democracy of the Western world, to the ISIS demonic plague that is wreaking havoc in Levant in the Middle East as well as in selective countries around the world, Satan and his demons appear to be tapping into a series of triangulations, using the social network, spearfishing tactics, and dog whistling conversion methods. This triangulation starts at the point of 2 billion social media followers, followed by a seven-step breakdown to the mark of the beast. This would be explained in detail in the story should you choose to read it. The end of the world’s cycle is fast approaching. This has prompted God to send his three “Top” angels, Gabriel, Raphael, and Michael, the Archangel, who is leading the team, to earth. They are on an assignment for Him! They would literally and physically destroy and rip apart anything that tries to derail their mission to right the wrong on the earth. Stephan Smith, a morally, insightful man of faith, was touched by the angel Gabriel, and he, along with journalist Christopher Rogers, and detective Danny Stone, forms a team in California to shut down a series of wrongdoing perpetrated by white supremacists in an effort to disrupt Satan’s major diabolical plot. Thousands of miles away in London, England, Carla Wallace, a lawyer, who is accompanied by her cousin, Sandra Wright, who has the same moral strength and faith, was touched by the angel Raphael, and they, along with Brent Russell, an MI-5 agent, team up to stop a series of events designed to change the world as we know it. Dunstan Archer, who worked as an elderly caretaker in Cleburne County, Alabama, was incarnated as Andrealphus, one of Lucifer’s fallen angels. After Lucifer and his selective angels took up residence on the earth, Andrealphus soon realized that he was caught up in the politics and evil conspiracies of the day. Once he realized that he made a mistake, he decided to flee with hopes of getting back into God’s good graces. He and both of his friends, Dr. Angela Romano and Julian Bates, took an adventurous trip to the Great Angel Falls of South America, Venezuela in order to assist Sam Watson his mentor, who was incarnated by Gabriel. Every effort had to be made to defuse the dark angel’s plot. Filled with riveting, heart-stopping twists and turns, this tale is an eye-opener and a page-turner!

  • Genre : Poetry
  • From Appalachian poet and memoirist Cheyanne Leonardo comes her second poetry collection, angel falls. This collection is both a love letter and a eulogy: it holds many moments of gratitude for our earthly life and endeavors to look beyond it through thoughtful exploration and unfettered imagination. The context for it all is the book's title - angel falls - which is a place as well as a concept. First of all, Angel Falls is a real place. It is the ghost of a split-stream waterfall in the Big South Fork that was blasted with dynamite in 1954 to better accommodate boating and fishing. Now it's a river rapid that causes confusion for hikers (expecting to arrive at the non-existent, hallowed falls) and extreme danger for kayakers and canoers (paddling downstream and navigating the perilous rock formation left behind). But angel falls becomes a concept as soon as we shift our focus on the word "falls" from noun to verb. An angel falling. A fallen angel. What does such an image conjure, in this particular place and time? At least, within these pages, it is a celebration of the divine beauty we can perceive in this world and an attempt to accept that so many of our deepest questions will remain unanswered until we leave it. In the meantime, we love each other. And we try to understand our purpose here together. To make sense of all the love and loss around her and how the two begin to overlap, Cheyanne looks for answers in nature, literature, spirituality, mythology, and her small town in Scott County, Tennessee. What she finds, she renders in poetry, weaving both clues and comfort into each poem for other searching souls to discover on their own journeys through place and time.

  • It's been rough lately for the Lord of Darkness, with ex-girlfriend drama rearing its head at inconvenient moments, ancient gods returning to take over the universe, and Satan's own unstoppable laziness. But whatever. Satan is okay, and he thinks you're okay, too. This whole eternal damnation thing is all a bit of a misunderstanding. He runs Hell as a resort, kind of. A vacation spot. The point is, he's not a bad guy. He's trying to save Heaven and all of creation, and he only has a dimwitted giant, a surly waitress, and a monkey to help him. So, a thank you might be nice. Maybe buy him a cup of coffee next time you see him. And you will see him. It's the Apocalypse, and all that.

Jessie and Jared are about to find out, in a place called Angel Falls, where an ancient and mysterious power waits to fulfill their deepest wishes--with dangerous consequences. Fifteen-year-old Jessie Reed would do anything to keep her parents together. When her father inherits an old house from his elderly and mysterious Cousin Dorothy, Jessie accompanies him to the seaport village of Beauport, while her mother stays behind in New York City. Fearing for her parents' marriage and unnerved by the prospect of spending her summer in "a dead woman's house", Jessie strikes out on her own and stumbles across the isolated trails of Angel Falls, a wild and beautiful place that holds the ruins of a three-hundred-year-old town with a strange history. There she encounters Jared Younger, a sixteen-year-old local boy who considers these forbidden woods his own. Jared is caretaker for his father, an artist crippled by depression. Jared feels powerless to save his father--until a series of unexplainable events brings him face to face with a power he never knew he had. Jared's teacher, Chris Delany offers to help him understand and control the strange thing that's happening to him--but are Delany's motives as pure as they seem? Or, as Jessie suspects, does Delany have a secret agenda of his own that puts Jared in danger? Together, Jessie and Jared discover that the truth is far more dangerous than they could have imagined and that they must work together to save their families and uncover the strange secret of Angel Falls.

  • People bask in the glory of their successes and contemplate difficulties when they fail. Because of this element of human nature, those who have more difficulties in life also have more motivation and opportunity to develop their minds. In this tail of morality two, kindhearted individuals Linda and Peako, face the extreme moral challenge of taking life for the greater good. Linda, a devout Christian, sees only the good in the world. She emotionally, faithfully and completely embraces society's peaceful institutions, overlooking and/or forgiving any inconsistencies within them. Employing this perspective, she lacks the ability to distinguish between the beneficial elements within institutions' and those that are detrimental to society. Peako, on the other hand, scrutinizes every element of life. When he considers society's institution he breaks them down into their most basic elements. To him the all-inspiring institutions, which can bind nations, are no more than lists of ideas-some he likes and some he does not like. Viewing the worlds' great and inspiring institutions as long but simple lists of concise points makes life appear no more substantial than a game. Peako and Linda first meet in Peace Corps. Their paths cross for the final time when Peako is the top scientist for the United States Organization of Political Analysis and Anticipation (USOPAA), an organization that runs scenarios on how the U.S. can create and maintain stability in strategic global regions. Linda, because she was known to act in humanities best interest is recruited to run a sister office. The result of Peako's project, as well as its true purpose, is alarming. The psychological journey of Peako and Linda is a mantra of morality to wrap your mind around. Through the story of Linda and Peako, an understanding can be uncovered that at the extremes of good and evil there is no black and white, just color.
