When his mother undertakes a journey to the far north to seek help, Aran is left in the care of a reclusive human woman on remote Spindle Island.

  • In September 1862, General Robert E. Lee invades Maryland with the hope of obtaining diplomatic recognition of European nations for the Confederacy. The whirlwind of events that follows changes not only the destiny of the nation, but the destinies of two young people on a pilgrimage of self-discovery. Fifteen-year-old Meg Hamilton, orphaned after the deaths of her mother and grandfather is desperately unhappy living with an aunt and uncle who despise her. Meg's biological father, whom she has met only once, is a Virginian with Lee's invading army. Meg's miserable home life and complications involving the family of her oldest and dearest friend Daniel motivate her to search for her father, even though he may not acknowledge her existence. When Daniel discovers her plan, he is determined to help her--despite a deep revulsion he feels towards "the enemy". Daniel and Meg learn that her father is with a regiment led by "Stonewall" Jackson, and they begin a journey together to find his military unit. Their travels lead them not only to the father she never knew, but also to a relationship that becomes much more than a childhood friendship. The Turning Point will transport you back to a place and time when momentous historical events reshaped the future of a nation and the lives of those who were caught up in them.

  • The manuscript, "The Turning Point, When the Pleaser of Man Becomes a Servant of the Lord," is a call for believers to stand up to core values and teachings of Christianity in the face of challenges and not to submit to the ways of the world. In the book I address the current state of affairs, where people have submitted to the demands and expectations of others to shape the way they live, most often against the virtues taught by Jesus Christ and how it parallels with the struggles in the lives of the men and women of our Biblical times. I address some of the issues we face on a daily basis such as; daily pressures, premarital sex, and the various life roles that we must play. In the latter part of the manuscript I share personal testimonies about my life struggles because of the workings of the devil and how I found peace and joy through the salvation of Jesus Christ. And I close with exhorting everyone to check their own lives and live up to the ways of righteousness.

  • It is the mid-1900s in Cyclone, a small coal mining community in mountainous West Virginia. Belva is proud of her large family and remains in love with Bill, her husband of thirteen years. They are dirt poor, but that is a common condition for many couples in those backwoods who are bound in a cycle of poverty and youthful marriage. Bill loses work during the winter and their financial situation becomes even more desperate. When Belva unexpectedly is offered a job as waitress in the local hotel’s dining room, she commits to it before she tells her fiercely proud coal miner husband. Bill, like many of his peers, considers any wife working outside the home an insult to a real man’s ability to take care of his family. A conflict of pride and poverty – and the fact that Bill’s pretty wife is now serving tables occupied mostly by hungry men - begins to take its toll. And now Tommy James, a former suitor and wildly successful real estate developer from Kingsport, is making unusual and frequent returns to town – and the hotel dining room. Whether beautiful, but vulnerable, Belva is being driven or led, the result is a tragedy in which the burden falls heavily upon the couple’s twelve year old daughter, Agnes, who must assume added responsibilities at home as she watches the deterioration in the relationship between her parents - both of whom she loves deeply. It is how Agnes finally comes to terms with the senseless and destructive events that follow, and finds the love she thought she had lost from her mother, that redeems the turning of Belva Goode. The book includes Bonus Short Stories set in the same time period and location. Some are humorous; some are touching. All are memorable.

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Business & Economics
  • In every person's life, there comes a moment in time when circumstances or events require decisions and responses that greatly determine the future. This book has no design to be another volume on leadership techniques. Rather, it is a candid exploration of those unexpected turns birthed out of the experience of being confronted with a reversal of circumstances in the life of an individual. Frankly, it is a study about the drama of life. The intention of the author is to give a sincere and straightforward examination of why turnabouts often get high-jacked and fail to live up to people's expectations. Even more, individuals will find a plea for courage and faith when things do not occur as they once envisioned they would. Consequently, it is a clarion call for courage to go further than some would desire, but also a caution to impatient leaders to be watchful of their own intentions to push a change further than would be wise. In the end, some leaders must be willing to consider a more contemplative life built on valuing people above their own ideological mindset. Dr. Wallace R. Pratt is an administrator, minister, teacher, and writer. He lives in Salem, Oregon and has been married thirty-eight years to his wonderful wife Judy. They are blessed with two daughters, two great son-in-laws and five grandchildren. Dr. Pratt serves as a regional supervisor in the Northwest for his church organization, while also serving as an adjunct professor for Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. His leadership experience has included thirty-three years of pastoral ministry and approximately eighteen years of teaching in sixteen nations. He has been serving on the Doctrine and Polity Committee of his church organization for fourteen years and presently holds the position of chairman for this international body.

  • INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “A superb suspense writer…Brava, Ruth Ware. I daresay even Henry James would be impressed.” —Maureen Corrigan, author of So We Read On “This appropriately twisty Turn of the Screw update finds the Woman in Cabin 10 author in her most menacing mode, unfurling a shocking saga of murder and deception.” —Entertainment Weekly From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Lying Game and The Death of Mrs. Westaway comes this thrilling novel that explores the dark side of technology. When she stumbles across the ad, she’s looking for something else completely. But it seems like too good an opportunity to miss—a live-in nannying post, with a staggeringly generous salary. And when Rowan Caine arrives at Heatherbrae House, she is smitten—by the luxurious “smart” home fitted out with all modern conveniences, by the beautiful Scottish Highlands, and by this picture-perfect family. What she doesn’t know is that she’s stepping into a nightmare—one that will end with a child dead and herself in prison awaiting trial for murder. Writing to her lawyer from prison, she struggles to explain the events that led to her incarceration. It wasn’t just the constant surveillance from the home’s cameras, or the malfunctioning technology that woke the household with booming music, or turned the lights off at the worst possible time. It wasn’t just the girls, who turned out to be a far cry from the immaculately behaved model children she met at her interview. It wasn’t even the way she was left alone for weeks at a time, with no adults around apart from the enigmatic handyman. It was everything. She knows she’s made mistakes. She admits that she lied to obtain the post, and that her behavior toward the children wasn’t always ideal. She’s not innocent, by any means. But, she maintains, she’s not guilty—at least not of murder—but somebody is. Full of spellbinding menace and told in Ruth Ware’s signature suspenseful style, The Turn of the Key is an unputdownable thriller from the Agatha Christie of our time.

  • Genre : History
  • The anti-Vietnam War movement in the United States is perhaps best remembered for its young, counterculture student protesters. However, the Vietnam War was the first conflict in American history in which a substantial number of military personnel actively protested the war while it was in progress. In The Turning, Andrew Hunt reclaims the history of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW), an organization that transformed the antiwar movement by placing Vietnam veterans in the forefront of the nationwide struggle to end the war. Misunderstood by both authorities and radicals alike, VVAW members were mostly young men who had served in Vietnam and returned profoundly disillusioned with the rationale for the war and with American conduct in Southeast Asia. Angry, impassioned, and uncompromisingly militant, the VVAW that Hunt chronicles in this first history of the organization posed a formidable threat to America's Vietnam policy and further contributed to the sense that the nation was under siege from within. Based on extensive interviews and in-depth primary research, including recently declassified government files, The Turning is a vivid history of the men who risked censures, stigma, even imprisonment for a cause they believed to be "an extended tour of duty."

The Turning Season turns its gaze on East German football's magnificent peculiarity, with 14 enchanting stories from a lost league in a country that disappeared.

Now that the future she’s spent years building toward has been snatched away, she can’t stand to be reminded of it—even if it means isolating herself from her best friends and her mother. The only wish this Genie has is to be left alone. But then she meets Kyle, who also has a “used to be.” Kyle used to tumble and flip on a gymnastics mat, but a traumatic brain injury has sent him to the same physical therapist that Genie sees. With Kyle’s support, along with her best friend’s insistence that Genie’s time at the barre isn’t over yet, Genie starts to see a new path—one where she doesn’t have to be alone and she finally has the strength to heal from the past. But healing also means confronting. Confronting the booze her mother, a recovering alcoholic, has been hiding under the kitchen sink; the ex-boyfriend who was there the night of the fall and won’t leave her alone; and Genie’s biggest, most terrifying secret: the fact that the accident may not have been so accidental after all.

    The Value of Hawaiʻi 3
  • Author : Noelani Goodyear-Ka‘ōpua,Craig Howes,Jonathan Kay Kamakawiwo‘ole Osorio,Aiko Yamashiro
  • Publisher : University of Hawaii Press

  • Genre : History
  • “Hulihia” refers to massive upheavals that change the landscape, overturn the normal, reverse the flow, and sweep away the prevailing or assumed. We live in such days. Pandemics. Threats to ʻāina. Political dysfunction, cultural appropriation, and disrespect. But also powerful surges toward sustainability, autonomy, and sovereignty. The first two volumes of The Value of Hawaiʻi (Knowing the Past, Facing the Future and Ancestral Roots, Oceanic Visions) ignited public conversations, testimony, advocacy, and art for political and social change. These books argued for the value of connecting across our different expertise and experiences, to talk about who we are and where we are going. In a world in crisis, what does Hawaiʻi’s experience tell us about how to build a society that sees opportunities in the turning and changing times? As islanders, we continue to grapple with experiences of racism, colonialism, environmental damage, and the costs of modernization, and bring to this our own striking creativity and histories for how to live peacefully and productively together. Steered by the four scholars who edited the previous volumes, The Value of Hawaiʻi 3: Hulihia, the Turning offers multigenerational visions of a Hawaiʻi not defined by the United States. Community leaders, cultural practitioners, artists, educators, and activists share exciting paths forward for the future of Hawaiʻi, on topics such as education, tourism and other economies, elder care, agriculture and food, energy and urban development, the environment, sports, arts and culture, technology, and community life. These visions ask us to recognize what we truly value about our home, and offer a wealth of starting points for critical and productive conversations together in this time of profound and permanent change.
