Your voice is crisp and natural, carrying the reader into lives of the characters and the world you have created seamlessly.' – Lauren Grey, author of 'Threads of Time'.'I love your historicals. They feel so real. I can already tell this one is excellent. The back and forth between Emma's modern life and Jennet's 18th century life is tantalizing.' - Laura Emmons, author of 'Seeing Magic' and 'Healing Hands'.'…a wonderful piece of writing.' - Lin Churchill, author of 'Pride'.'Overall I can see this attracting readers of both contemporary and historical fiction. It seems that it will gravitate around characters and relationships so perhaps it may have more appeal to women. It was a pleasure to read, Karen and it's setting up the connection between past and present very well' - Lesa Clarke, author of 'The Glass House'.'Wow, I've never been into ghost stories before, but this is great!' – Lesley Taylor, author of 'Heart-Brother' and 'Changeling'.'Startling but extremely accurate use of language . . . Very emotive and skilfully handled . . . I found your writing fluid and accurate but more importantly, completely enthralling.' – R.M.A., author of 'The Snow Lily'.'This is terrific.' - Chris Bostic, author of 'Game Changer' and 'Fugitives From Northwoods''As always, your writing is impressive and so is your knowledge of boats. You have clearly taken the time to research the area, the herbs and other various concepts within your book, and it shows and makes the story that much stronger throughout. I really enjoyed this book, truly, and I'm glad I had the opportunity to read it. Well done.'– Claire C Riley, author of 'Limerence''I love the way you handle your characters and the way you blend them into the book from the word go but in such a clever way... There is a really nice narrative here coupled with a brilliant flow and pace to it. You have done well and I like this a lot.' – Sean Connolly, author of. British Army on the Rampage. (B.A.O.R)'Very well crafted… a fantastic read' – Annabel Watkinson, author of 'The Year of Us''This is an excellent example of the timeslip genre. Both Jennet's and Emma's voices are realistic and representative of the two different timeframes.' – Lynne Jones author of The Bon Ton Club

As the Civil War rages, another battle breaks out behind the lines. During a long hot July in 1863, the worst race riots the United States has ever seen erupt in New York City. Earlier that year, desperate for more Union soldiers, President Abraham Lincoln instituted a draft–a draft that would allow the wealthy to escape serving in the army by paying a $300 waiver, more than a year’s income for the recent immigrant Irish. And on July 11, as the first drawing takes place in Lower Manhattan, the city of New York explodes in rage and fire. Stores are looted; buildings, including the Colored Foundling Home, are burned down; and black Americans are attacked, beaten, and murdered. The police cannot hold out against the rioters, and finally, battle-hardened soldiers are ordered back from the fields of Gettysburg to put down the insurrection, which they do–brutally. Fifteen-year-old Claire, the beloved daughter of a black father and Irish mother, finds herself torn between the two warring sides. Faced with the breakdown of the city–the home–she has loved, Claire must discover the strength and resilience to address the new world in which she finds herself, and to begin the hard journey of remaking herself and her identity. Addressing such issues as race, bigotry, and class head-on, Walter Dean Myers has written another stirring and exciting novel that will shake up assumptions, and lift the spirit.

Strategic Risk: A Guide for Directors presents a challenging new approach to risk management known as STRATrisk, which helps enterprises to focus on the outcomes that really matter. The authors state that strategic risks differ from tactical risks, not just in magnitude but also in their nature - even though they often arise from project or operational risks; that is because the really big risks are more dynamic, uncertain and interconnected. This guide has been produced by collaboration between the civil engineering and actuarial professions, and shows why managing strategic risk needs a different approach; outlines a recommended methodology; stresses the necessity for the board to provide risk leadership and create the right culture, internal communications systems and risk-management frameworks; and discusses how to proceed in practice and outlines constructive tools.

To understand the contemporary Muslim movement in the Philippines, one must be acquainted with the political, geographical, and historical situation there. Cesar Adib Majul provides the background needed to comprehend current conditions. Majul is a native of the Philippines who was educated in the Philippines and at Cornell University, and taught at the University of the Philippines for most of his career. Personally acquainted with many of key figures in the movements he discusses, the author is uniquely qualified to provide insight into his topic. He has a clear, pragmatic vision of what must be done to make the Philippines a pluralistic nation where Muslims and Christians share power and economic opportunity and respect each others' history and traditions. Carefully researched and thought out, complete with footnotes and bibliography, this work is equally valuable to scholars and concerned lay readers.

Who is Roy Spence and what makes him the Pied Piper of Purpose? Over the last thirty-five years, Roy Spence has helped organizations such as Southwest Airlines, BMW, the University of Texas, Walmart, the Clinton Global Initiative, and many others achieve greatness by getting them to obsess about one big idea: purpose. With purpose as the North Star, employee engagement is higher, competition is less threatening, customers are more loyal, and innovation flows. It's the secret to developing a more fulfilling work life as well as a healthier bottom line. Simply put, purpose is a definitive statement about the difference you are trying to make in the world. As Spence writes, "It's your reason for being that goes beyond making money, and it almost always results in making more money than you ever thought possible." It's not soft stuff, as some might scoff. Especially during times of great economic uncertainty, purpose is the key to creating and maintaining a high-performing organization. It deserves just as much attention as strategy, execution, and innovation. A real purpose can't just be words on a piece of paper. It has to get under the skin of every member of your organization like Southwest's purpose of democratizing the skies or Walmart's of saving people money so they can live better. If you get it right, your people will feel great about what they're doing, clear about their goals, and excited to get to work every morning. No organization is too big or too small, too niche or too mundane, to benefit from a clearly defined purpose. Spence and coauthor Haley Rushing share their insider insights and case studies to help you discover your organization's purpose, proclaim it to the world, and apply it to everything you do. This book will force you to address some tough and profound questions: •What difference do we want to make in the world? •What do we really stand for? •Do we have purpose-based leaders in key roles? •Do our employees feel like what they do matters? •Would our customers miss us if we ceased to exist? •Do we bring our purpose to life everywhere we can both internally and externally? Spence's hard-won lessons will change the way you view your job, your business model, your leadership style, and your marketing. They will help you make money, make a difference, and with a little luck,make history. From the Hardcover edition.
The Making of Modern Portugal

This book can be read in two different ways: as an introductory synthesis on Modern Portugal, or as a collection of twelve studies focusing on familiar aspects of the State formation of any modern nation throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. In this second reading, each chapter opens comparative perspectives on specific topics within some key fields of studies and international debates on modernity, including population, police, empire, technology, bureaucracy, social sciences, rural life, education, religion, nationalism, communism, and economy. Such a wide range of subjects, however, proves comprehensive enough to create a narrative where the reader may also locate the chief trends and dynamics developing in Portuguese history and society during the last two centuries. From this perspective, Portugal emerges as a country traversed by social conflict and struggling for modernization. Granted, this is not a very surprising picture, especially if we consider it in the historical context of European modernity. And yet, it is precisely this familiarity, one might argue, that allows The Making of Modern Portugal to become a useful tool for inserting the Portuguese case into the debates of a wide range of fields and disciplines in Europe and beyond.

Poetry. "Think of a deer, nervously alert, stepping into a meadow hushed with dawn light. That is the way language moves in Tiff Dressen's poetry. Every pause, every space in this work seems charged by a presence that holds both promise and danger. Addressed to a mysterious Other, these messages arrive from an interior so deep as to become exterior, "extended from your solar heart / to your sun blade." Dressen, returning to poetry's sources in the elemental, offers oracular voicings—sure in their hesitation, bold in their trembling—in which, with dreamlike clarity, one can "see / the whole earth / breathing."—Andrew Joron
