  • Best Books Award Finalist! Ten years ago, Courtney Morgan had somehow found the courage to escape a life of abuse and run. Now living a comfortable--albeit lonely--existence, she's determined to make the most of her second chance. But when a newcomer strolls into the diner where she works, a series of events lands her on a road trip from Arizona to Georgia. After she learns her travel companion has been given a terminal diagnosis and is returning home, Courtney sees this as an opportunity to pay it forward and help, like someone had once done for her. Yet, despite her good intentions, it seems fate is determined to put love and friendship in her path, forcing her to evaluate her own future and what she desires most. Offering forgiveness is hard, especially when that person needing it most is herself. And she's discovering the important things in life are about the people along her journey, not the destination.

  • From the Civil War battlefields of England and Ireland to a mystery lost in the forests of North America, this is both a roaring adventure and a timely commentary on the dangers of religious extremism. Rhisiart Dafydd is a zealous Roundhead who embraces Oliver Cromwell's New Model Army and the violence it entails. But can his convictions survive the atrocities of the English Civil Wars and Parliament's campaign in Ireland? Called upon by his former commander to voyage to America to seek out a missing group of Welsh Puritans, he must first survive the journey, and then - if he can find the community - see whether they really have created the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. An epic historical adventure set during one of the most turbulent periods in history, this gripping thriller also poses questions about violence, power, religious extremism and rejection of difference which are chillingly relevant to our world today.

  • This page-turning, harrowing debut is the story of a girl trying to fit in, whose obsessive new friends and desperation to belong leads her to places she’d never imagined...dark, dangerous, and possibly even violent. "Fans of Greer Macallister, Paula Hawkins, and Janelle Brown will devour Violet’s journey.” —Booklist ~~~ In 1998, a sixteen-year-old girl is found dead. She’s posed on a swing on her boarding school’s property, dressed all in white, with no known cause of death. Whispers and rumors swirl, with no answers. But there are a few who know what happened; there is one girl who will never forget. One year earlier: a new student, Violet, steps on the campus of Elm Hollow Academy, an all-girl’s boarding school on the outskirts of a sleepy coastal town. This is her fresh start, her chance to begin again in the wake of tragedy, leave her demons behind. Bright but a little strange, uncertain and desperate to fit in, she soon finds herself invited to an advanced study group, led by her alluring and mysterious art teacher, Annabel. There, with three other girls—Alex, Grace, and Robin—the five of them delve into the school’s long-buried grim history: of Greek and Celtic legends; of the school founder’s “academic” interest in the occult; of gruesome 17th century witch trials. Annabel does her best to convince the girls that her classes aren’t related to ancient rites and rituals, and that they are just history and mythology. But the more she tries to warn the girls off the topic, the more they are drawn to it, and the possibility that they can harness magic for themselves. Violet quickly finds herself wrapped up in this heady new world of lawless power—except she is needled by the disappearance of a former member of the group, one with whom Violet shares an uncanny resemblance. As her friends’ actions take a turn for the darker and spiral out of control, she begins to wonder who she can trust, all the while becoming more deeply entangled. How far will these young girls go to protect one another...or to destroy one another?

    The World of Bereavement

  • ISBN : 9783319139456
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Psychology
  • This visionary work explores the sensitive balance between the personal and private aspects of grief, the social and cultural variables that unite communities in bereavement, and the universal experience of loss. Its global journey takes readers into the processes of coping, ritual, and belief across established and emerging nations, indigenous cultures, and countries undergoing major upheavals, richly detailed by native scholars and practitioners. In these pages, culture itself is recognized as formed through many lenses, from the ancestral to the experiential. The human capacity to mourn, endure, and make meaning is examined in papers such as: Death, grief, and culture in Kenya: experiential strengths-based research. Death and grief in Korea: the continuum of life and death. To live with death: loss in Romanian culture. The Brazilian ways of living, dying, and grieving. Death and bereavement in Israel: Jewish, Muslim, and Christian perspectives. Completing the circle of life: death and grief among Native Americans. It is always normal to remember: death, grief, and culture in Australia. The World of Bereavement will fascinate and inspire clinicians, providers, and researchers in the field of death studies as well as privately-held professional training programs and the bereavement community in general.

  • Genre : Poetry
  • I have written different kinds of poems in Australia, and in Iraqi Kurdistan. I would like to share them with readers who are interested in reading poems about different cultures and for them to feel and sense the sorrows of other people in the world. My book consists of an introduction, the city of Koya and its history, the university of Koya, the history of English language, and brief explanation on poetry as well. My emotional poems come from real life events that I have seen and experienced. Its not easy to describe what I have seen and what I have gone through in life unless I write it down. Sometimes I could say, it was happiness but at the same time sadness that I experienced which are evident in my poems as well. But I can say I have enjoyed both, because life is full of ups and downs and this is what makes us be the person we are. Since I started Intermediate School in September 1971. My feelings and emotions moved me mentally and physically towards writing poems. I could say that the political situation and the bad treatment towards the Kurds, and Kurdistan as well as the bad economical situation generally had affected me. The political situation in our life turned all the beautiful things upside down. I started to write poems in Kurdish when I was in Highschool and I collected hundreds of poems. They were about love, our land, poverty, and political situations. As a student from an average family (low class income), we were just able to survive with no extra money to spend on other things. I was not able to publish them in a small booklet, and it was not an easy process. The former Iraqi government or any other organization did not provide help in order to publish it. I kept them at home. At that time some of the poems were even prohibited to be seen by anyone or to be published at all. If they were captured in your house by the Iraqi authorities, it would have cost my life, my family’s life or the government would knock down our house. I liked my poems and they were became a big part of my life. This feeling never stopped. It continued and grew like a small child with me. In June 1981, I escaped from the former Iraqi army as I was a soldier. I was in the city of Basra in South of Iraq at that time, due to the Iraqi and Iranian war; I encouraged all my friends to run away from the army. We were a group of Kurdish soldiers; we escaped at night through the Arab river by a small boat, which was located at South East of Basra. We went back to the city of Slemani in Iraqi Kurdistan. After a few days I left the city towards a liberated Kurdish area, which was under the control of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), which was a political organization. I settled in the village of Maiyawa in the district of Sharbajer/Srochk. I stayed there for two years with hundreds of other escapees at the village. But I was living in an empty school with my cousin. I started to write poems about every single true emotion that came into my mind, for instance I did write about so many fights that were happened in our area between the Kurdish Freedom Fighters and the Iraqi army. I wrote so many poems and a few stories for two years, even I went to Iran couple times and wrote about my trips. I had two books full of poems when I came back to Slemani, the Iraqi government granted the Kurdish soldiers amnesty in order the Kurdish escapees to join the Iraqi army again. We joined the Iraqi army for six months then the Kurdish soldiers were retired from the Iraqi army, due to being Kurds. In 1985 I was working at the university of Salahaddin in Erbil (Hewler), the capital city of the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG), and I was not home then around 50,000 Iraqi soldiers were poured

  • The one who wars against our soul has been working to destroy the family unit since Genesis. In fact, Genesis is a great book to read to see family dysfunction up close and personal. I have learned a great deal from Genesis regarding people's tendencies, poor choices, and how God responds. God is incredibly forgiving; however, He does not excuse us from the ramifications of our choices, good or bad. We all come with some sort of baggage. We need the One who created the universe, who breathed life into us, who knit us together in our mothers' wombs, who taught us wisdom in that secret place, and who knows each one of us intimately to affirm His love for us. We all desire to belong and to be loved. I built large walls around my heart to protect it from pain and disappointment, and I learned to take care of myself and to count only on myself. But that is not where my story ends... You see, "The God who sees me" Genesis 16:13 was watching, drawing, loving, caring and protecting. His loving kindness was pulling me in, for it is "His kindness that leads us to repentance" (Romans 2:4). The God of all hope began to fill me with joy and peace as I trusted in Him, and I began to overflow with hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. This woman who now writes to bring hope to others has been made new. I am alive in Christ! I am no longer defined by the words depressed, angry, hurt, unwanted, or unloved. I am now called chosen, wanted, beloved, child of the King. God's grace and love saw me, called me and, upon my response to Him, began a work that He will see through to completion. I no longer wander in the darkness, for I have seen a great light. I am no longer independent, but interdependent, "for we are all Living Stones fitted jointly together" (1 Peter 2:5). I have been healed from fibromyalgia. I have been healed from anger and depression through forgiveness. I am now defined by the words written on the pages of the Bible, and I hide them in my heart. I am now compelled to share the love and hope that is available to every single person who still has breath in him (or her). "Because of His great love for us, God who is rich in mercy made us alive in Christ even when we were dead in transgressions" (Ephesians 2:4). "How great is the love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God and that is what we are!" (1 John 3:1). This is my story.

  • Genre : Self-Help
  • From the bestselling author of The Traveler’s Gift comes a two-book collection based on the remarkable true story of “Jones,” a mysterious old man who provides priceless lessons about love, life, and the importance of perspective. In this two-book collection, Andy Andrews introduces readers to Orange Beach, Alabama, is a simple town filled with simple people. But like all humans on the planet, the good folks of Orange Beach have their share of problems—marriages teetering on the brink of divorce, young adults giving up on life, business people on the verge of bankruptcy, as well as the many other obstacles that life seems to dish out to the masses. Fortunately in The Noticer, when things look the darkest, a mysterious man named Jones has a miraculous way of showing up. An elderly man with white hair, of indiscriminate age and race, wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt and leather flip flops carrying a battered old suitcase, Jones is a unique soul. Communicating what he calls “a little perspective,” he explains that he has been given a gift of noticing things that others miss. “Your time on this earth is a gift to be used wisely,” he says. “Don’t squander your words or your thoughts. Consider even the simplest action you take, for your lives matter beyond measure . . . and they matter forever.” Jones speaks to that part in everyone that is yearning to understand why things happen and what we can do about it. As the story continues to unfold in The Noticer Returns, Jones uses his unique talent of noticing little things that make a big difference. And these “little things” grant people a life-changing gift—perspective. Along the way, families will be united, financial opportunities will be created, and readers will be left with powerfully simple solutions to the everyday problems we all face. What starts as a story of one person's everyday reality unfolds into the extraordinary principles available to anyone looking to create the life for which they were intended. This collection will provide you with: A better understanding of life’s challenges and proper perspective for tackling them Practical yet powerful methods of motivation, encouragement, and resolve for those struggling A fresh and insightful perspective on how people can change their view of the world, find strength, and move beyond their problems

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : History
  • The period between the two world wars of the twentieth century was one of the most challenging in the history of war. In anticipation of another conflict, military planners and civilian thinkers struggled after 1918 with the painful implications of World War I. Given its scope, the wholesale mobilisation of civilian populations and the targets of civilians via blockades and strategic bombing, many observers regarded this titanic conflict as a 'total war'. They also concluded that any future conflict would bear the same hallmarks; and they planned accordingly. The essays in this collection, the fourth in a series on the problem of total war, examine the inter-war period. They explore the consequences of World War I, the intellectual efforts to analyse this conflict's military significance, the attempts to plan for another general war and several episodes in the 1930s that portended the war that erupted in 1939.
