Books Description:

Dylan was a tough, rational, no-nonsense detective that didn’t have time for faith, until his wife dies suddenly, and he finds himself angry at the God he didn’t believe existed. Sarah changes everything. She is intelligent, accomplished, and incredibly beautiful; she renews his hope, reignites his passion, and opens the door to new faith. That faith is tested when Sarah reveals she was Touched by God when she was healed of Tuberculosis— in 1736. Despite his reservations, Dylan chooses to believe Sarah and soon joins her in her quest to find others who have been Touched. After discovering several people who have been alive for centuries, Dylan also discovers victims of brutal human experimentation, torture, and murder, and must solve the biggest case of his life before time runs out for the Touched.

Books Description:

Time may not heal all wounds--but she can. You'd think being able to heal people with a touch would be a blessing. But to 17-year-old Remy O'Malley, it's more like a curse. Every injury Remy heals becomes her own. She lives in fear of the day she's forced to mend a wound from which she can't recover--and she's desperate to keep her amazing ability a secret. Enter Asher Blackwell, a scarred eighteen-year-old with dangerous powers of his own. Asher seems to know more about Remy's abilities than she does--and maybe more than he's letting on. If she opens up to him, she might find out what it truly means to be a Healer. But she'll also expose herself to capture by an old and very determined enemy. And if they catch her, they won't just injure her. They'll kill her. Corrine Jackson is a San Francisco transplant, having lived on both coasts from Southern California to New York City. For the last seven years, she has sharpened her marketing talents at Alcone Marketing, where she has won several industry awards.

Books Description:

In TOUCHED (BOOK #2 OF THE SHADOW VAMPIRES), Keira Blaine is on the run with her new love, Cooper. Having just finished vanquishing the first wave of Shadow Vampires, the small town of Everstock is no longer a safe place for them. They have to flee, and search for a safe haven together. Keira can't return home anyway, especially after running away from her parents to be with Cooper. As they embark on their journey together, Cooper tells Keira about his long-lost mother and her tribe, The Torches, a race of positive vampires, rival enemies to the Shadow Vampires. Separated from her at birth, Cooper is determined to find his mother, and to follow the clues and his magical ring that will lead him to her. Keira is determined to find out more about who she is becoming, too, and where her new powers are coming from mysterious powers that are growing by the day. Is she a vampire, too? Where is her strength coming from? What is her destiny? Keira and Cooper continue on their fantastical journey to mysterious islands in Lake Michigan. They manage to find Cooper's mother and her tribe but once there, Keira has to confront a beautiful young Torch woman, Tua, who falls in love with Cooper and is determined to make him her own. Keira is forced to face danger alone at a club in Chicago, and to go back home and face her family and her old high school where she realizes that she is no longer welcome. Worse, the Shadow Vampires won't let them rest. They hunt them down, and enlist their most gorgeous soldier the teenage Percy to seduce Keira's sister, Amanda, and have her lead them to her. Amanda, despite herself, falls deeply in love, and Percy finds himself feeling unexpected feelings of his own. Will he have to betray his tribe? Keira and Cooper, too, are falling more deeply in love with each other but life circumstances seem determined to pry them apart. Will their love withstand the test? Will Keira find out who she really is? And will the Shadows hunt them down before they can each fulfill their mission? TOUCHED is Book #2 of the Shadow Vampires (following SAVED), and yet it also stands alone as a self-contained novel.

Books Description:

Robbie Young is an ordinary twelve-year-old boy about to drop a bombshell that will devastate his small town family. One day he rides his bike home after school, finds his mother in the kitchen making dinner, and speaks aloud the secret he's been keeping for a year, "Jerry Houseman's been touching me." Robbie has been molested and the Young family will never be the same. From that moment on, the novel unfolds with inexorable power. The story is narrated in four parts: first by Robbie's mother, then by Jerry Houseman himself, then by Houseman's wife Linda, and concluded by Robbie himself fifteen years later, when he has returned to town for a high school reunion. Each voice is remarkably persuasive and utterly convincing, and the result is a novel that is impossible to put down as it is impossible to forget.

Books Description:

Touched With Fire, a novel of the Civil War inspired by the true story of Ellen Craft. Ellen Craft is property; in this case, of her half-sister Debra, to whom she was given as a wedding gift. The illegitimate daughter of a Georgia plantation owner and a house slave, she learned to hate her own image, which so closely resembled that of her "father:" the same wiry build, the same blue eyes, and the same pale--indeed, lily-white--skin. Ellen lives a solitary life until she falls, unexpectedly, in love with a dark-skinned slave named William Craft, and together they devise a plan to run North. Ellie will pose as a gentleman planter bound for Philadelphia accompanied by his "boy" Will. They make it as far as Baltimore when Will is turned back, and Ellie has no choice but continue. With no way of knowing if he is dead or alive, she resolves to make a second journey--South again. And so Elijah Craft enlists with the 125th Ohio Volunteers of the Union Army: she will literally fight her way back to her husband. Eli/Ellie's journey is the story of an extraordinary individual and an abiding love, but also of the corrosive effects of slavery, and of a nation at a watershed moment.

Books Description:

The instant New York Times bestseller | Named one of the ten best books of 2019 by People magazine A chance encounter at a summer party on Martha’s Vineyard blossomed into an improbable but enduring friendship. Carly Simon and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis made an unlikely pair—Carly, a free and artistic spirit still reeling from her recent divorce, searching for meaning, new love, and an anchor; and Jackie, one of the most celebrated, meticulous, unknowable women in American history. Nonetheless, over the next decade their lives merged in inextricable and complex ways, and they forged a connection deeper than either could ever have foreseen. The time they spent together—lingering lunches and creative collaborations, nights out on the town and movie dates—brought a welcome lightness and comfort to their days, but their conversations often veered into more profound territory as they helped each other navigate the shifting waters of life lived, publicly, in the wake of great love and great loss. An intimate, vulnerable, and insightful portrait of the bond that grew between two iconic and starkly different American women, Carly Simon’s Touched by the Sun is a chronicle, in loving detail, of the late friendship she and Jackie shared. It is a meditation on the ways someone can unexpectedly enter our lives and change its course, as well as a celebration of kinship in all its many forms. "In Touched by the Sun, Simon reveals an easy-going, playful side of [Jackie] that most people never saw — sneaking a smoke during intermission at the opera, frolicking in the ocean off the Vineyard . . . The woman who would later edit several of Simon’s children’s books was 'just fun to be around.'" —Juliet Pennington, The Boston Globe

Books Description:

The definitive work on the profound and surprising links between manic-depression and creativity, from the bestselling psychologist of bipolar disorders who wrote An Unquiet Mind. One of the foremost psychologists in America, “Kay Jamison is plainly among the few who have a profound understanding of the relationship that exists between art and madness” (William Styron). The anguished and volatile intensity associated with the artistic temperament was once thought to be a symptom of genius or eccentricity peculiar to artists, writers, and musicians. Her work, based on her study as a clinical psychologist and researcher in mood disorders, reveals that many artists subject to exalted highs and despairing lows were in fact engaged in a struggle with clinically identifiable manic-depressive illness. Jamison presents proof of the biological foundations of this disease and applies what is known about the illness to the lives and works of some of the world's greatest artists including Lord Byron, Vincent Van Gogh, and Virginia Woolf.

Books Description:

Touch is a fundamental element of dance. The (time) forms and contact zones of touch are means of expression both of self-reflexivity and the interaction of the dancers. Liberties and limits, creative possibilities and taboos of touch convey insights into the ‘aisthesis’ of the different forms of dance: into their dynamics and communicative structure, as well as into the production and regulation of affects. Touching and Being Touched assembles seventeen interdisciplinary papers focusing on the question of how forms and practices of touch are connected with the evocation of feelings. Are these feelings evoked in different ways in tango, Contact improvisation, European and Japanese contemporary dance? The contributors to this volume (dance, literature, and film scholars as well as philosophers and neuroscientists) provide in-depth discussions of the modes of transfer between touch and being touched. Drawing on the assumptions of various theories of body, emotion, and senses, how can we interpret the processes of tactile touch and of being touched emotionally? Is there a specific spectrum of emotions activated during these processes (within both the spectator and the dancer)? How can the relationship of movement, touch, and emotion be analyzed in relation to kinesthesia and empathy?

Books Description:

We are all surrounded by evil. Evil exists—and if you think it does not, you are deluding yourself. It is real, it is tangible, and it is faceless. It is an insatiable hunger living in all of us, lying dormant, endlessly waiting for the moment it can be unleashed. No one is immune to its influence or shielded from its wraith. The moment you are possessed by its power, it is all consuming and it forces you to do the unthinkable. For proof of this, you need only watch the daily news. It’s filled with stories of unimaginable suffering brought about by the hand of man against his fellows. What you are about to read in these pages are true stories about those things we fear the most. Acts so heinous we refuse to believe human beings could commit them. Depravities so vile they shock us to the very core of our being. Brutality so vicious it will make you ashamed to claim membership in the human race. What is even more appalling is that people don’t care about evil until it touches them.
