Five childhood friends with big plans face the changing realities of life in Tennessee in the 1960s in this novel from bestselling author Lisa Alther As Sally and Emily Prince and Jed, Raymond, and Donny Tatro sit under their beloved Castle Tree in rural, segregated Tennessee, they dream big dreams. But the journey from these dreams to reality is a long one. As they move into their teens, each faces challenges they could never have imagined. Sally and Jed may take a traditional route as head cheerleader and football captain in their sports-frenzied town, but can their love survive some unexpected bumps in the road? Emily and Raymond, always the outsiders, move north during the civil rights movement and must consider their connection to Southern roots and traditional gender roles. And Donny, as an African-American teen, will endure the effects of generations of discrimination and class boundaries as he tries to live out his dreams in their small factory town. Along the way, the five will fall in love, change one another’s lives, grow apart, and come together again. In this sweeping novel, Alther brings to life characters both tragic and comic as they live through the changing American socio-economic landscape of the 1950s and ’60s. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lisa Alther, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

A spellbinding new novel of contraband masterpieces, tragic love, and the unexpected legacies of forgotten crimes, Ayelet Waldman’s Love and Treasure weaves a tale around the fascinating, true history of the Hungarian Gold Train in the Second World War. In 1945 on the outskirts of Salzburg, victorious American soldiers capture a train filled with unspeakable riches: piles of fine gold watches; mountains of fur coats; crates filled with wedding rings, silver picture frames, family heirlooms, and Shabbat candlesticks passed down through generations. Jack Wiseman, a tough, smart New York Jew, is the lieutenant charged with guarding this treasure—a responsibility that grows more complicated when he meets Ilona, a fierce, beautiful Hungarian who has lost everything in the ravages of the Holocaust. Seventy years later, amid the shadowy world of art dealers who profit off the sins of previous generations, Jack gives a necklace to his granddaughter, Natalie Stein, and charges her with searching for an unknown woman—a woman whose portrait and fate come to haunt Natalie, a woman whose secret may help Natalie to understand the guilt her grandfather will take to his grave and to find a way out of the mess she has made of her own life. A story of brilliantly drawn characters—a suave and shady art historian, a delusive and infatuated Freudian, a family of singing circus dwarfs fallen into the clutches of Josef Mengele, and desperate lovers facing choices that will tear them apart—Love and Treasure is Ayelet Waldman’s finest novel to date: a sad, funny, richly detailed work that poses hard questions about the value of precious things in a time when life itself has no value, and about the slenderest of chains that can bind us to the griefs and passions of the past. This eBook edition includes a Reading Group Guide.

Santa Louisa is still reeling from the lethal rampage of the demon Envy, one of the Seven Deadly Sins released from Hell by black magic. The fiendish entity was finally trapped, but when more bodies bearing satanic marks surface in Los Angeles, demon hunter Moira O’Donnell fears the terror has only just begun. Racing to L.A., Moira discovers that the City of Angels is fast becoming the demon Lust’s decadent playground. She suspects another coven is at work, aided indirectly by her diabolical mother, the powerful witch Fiona. But when Moira’s unwanted psychic powers intensify, she fears her connection to the underworld is putting everyone she cares about in grave danger. As supernatural war erupts, Moira and smoldering, seductive Rafe Cooper are caught in the crossfire. Cornered by mortal and unearthly enemies, they must master all their own powers to survive—and to understand if the intensely passionate feelings that bind them are Lust’s demon magic or true desire.

Ever say, “No one feels like me or understands what I’m feeling.” Ever ask, “Why me, Lord?” If these words are familiar, you’re not alone. Beginning with Eve, women are women. God’s blueprint for us has not changed, nor will it. That’s why this study is so exciting. In it, you will discover the women of the Bible are just like us! Without exception, they had plans, hopes, and dreams. They loved, laughed, and cried. They feared, sacrificed, and nurtured. They experienced good times and bad. Some had kids; some didn’t. Some were married, some weren’t. Some were wholesome while others were decadent. They experienced significant victories and shameful defeats, all of them. That’s why their stories seem familiar; these women are like us! The Bible proves that although flawed and frail, ordinary messy women were useful to our extraordinary God. Why? Because he redeemed them, the whole of their lives—the good, the bad, and the ugly. He didn’t leave one of them the way he found them. He won’t leave us lonely, unforgiven, or despairing either! If you fret, feel worn and weary; look pretty on the outside but feel pretty flawed and frail on the inside; or if sin surrounds you, this study is for you. God is into women! He loves us and makes all things new through his redeeming love! Anne is a missionary and graduate of Metro Atlanta Seminary. She is the co-founder of Open Heavens Ministries, Inc., a nonprofit discipleship ministry established in 2004. Its mission is growing others in faith and practice through the study of God’s Word. All aspects of ministry, on the streets, in classrooms, and in the Church, is focused and centered on God’s Word – the good news – the Gospel of Christ. A comprehensive study guide and workbook which invites us into the lives of Eve, Sarah, Hagar, Rebekah, Miriam, Rahab, Ruth, Esther, Gomer, and Mary – the Virgin Mother.

"In a period of right wing attacks on Muslims - or people thought to be Muslims - how does one respond to human rights violations by the Muslim Right without feeding hate campaigns? When US diplomats invoke the oppression of Muslim women to sanctify war, how do we practice feminist solidarity without strengthening Orientalism and neocolonialism? When the US targets jihadis for assassination by drone, should human rights defenders worry about violations perpetrated by those same jihadis or focus on violations by the state? These are some of the questions raised in Double Bind: the Muslim Right, the Anglo-American Left, and Universal Human Rights ... Taking the UK organization Cageprisoners as an example, it shows how to distinguish between organizations that stand for universal and inseparable human rights, and those that use the language of human rights for other purposes. It discusses "five wrong ideas about the Muslim Right" : that it is anti-imperialist; that "defence of Muslim lands" is comparable to national liberation struggles; that the problem is "Islamphobia"; that terrorism is justified by revolutionary necessity; and that any feminist who criticises the Muslim Right is an Orientalist ally of US imperialism."--Publisher description.

God is calling the Church out of the wilderness of unbelief and into His promised land of faith and abundance. Unbelief: The Deadly Sin speaks of how this sin has robbed many of their destiny and inheritance in Christ. This book will inspire you to take hold of what Satan has stolen from you. In every area of your life, it will teach you how to apply biblical principles that will set you free from your past and from the strongholds of Satan. God’s desire is to fully restore us to deepest intimacy with Him through repentance and a total surrender of our wills to Him. He is calling His Church to rise up into a greater power and authority through the power of the cross, and to walk in mighty signs, wonders, and miracles. Jesus is calling forth a “Joshua generation”—a holy “remnant” in this hour that will walk in power. The sacrifice will be great, but the rewards of surrendering everything to Jesus will far outweigh the losses. God’s inspired prophetic words in this book will awaken a new passion and desire in your heart to take hold of God’s end-time plan and purpose for your life.
