Sheridan Bromleigh is hired to accompany one of her students, heiress Charise Lancaster, to England to meet her fiancé. But when her charge elopes with a stranger, Sheridan wonders how she will ever explain it to Charise’s intended, Lord Burleton. Standing on the pier, Stephen Westmoreland, the Earl of Langford, assumes the young woman coming toward him is Charise Lancaster and reluctantly informs her of his inadvertent role in a fatal accident involving Lord Burleton the night before. And just as the young woman is about to speak, she steps into the path of a cargo net loaded with crates. Sheridan awakens in Westmoreland’s mansion with no memory of who she is; the only hint of her past is the puzzling fact that everyone calls her Miss Lancaster. All she truly knows is that she is falling in love with a handsome English earl, and that the life unfolding before her seems full of wondrous possibilities.

Books Description:

Rebellion is abhorred by rulers and Christians and perhaps, everyone, despite the fact that they are all engaged in it, under different guises. Rebellion is an inevitable route God meant for man to arrive the palace of relevance, recognition and respect. Individual mannerisms might differ but all recognized and relevant individuals who have ever lived are rebels or are engaged in rebellion in one form or the other at different times of their lives. Perhaps, ‘no rebellion, no relevance’ – as rebellion has resounding reward. Joseph became relevant because he did not follow in the traditional heritage of shepherd that the Hebrews were famous for in his generation. Jesus became relevant because He made a marked departure from the traditional Jewish religion as it was known at the time. Find out how you can benefit from God-authored and sponsored rebellion to become and remain relevant in your lifetime. There is something seemingly rebellious God planned that you should do to become relevant inevitably in this life and in the life to come.

Books Description:

Bless Me until You’re Satisfied offers itself as a guide to the Scriptures’ witness to the abundant blessings God desires to pour out into the lives of all who follow Him in faith. By drawing upon his ministry as a pastor and his work in a counseling center dedicated to transforming the lives of at-risk youths, Joseph Harris lifts up the overwhelming power of God’s blessings in the face of life’s challenges and adversities. Each chapter of Bless Me until You’re Satisfied typically begins with a passage from the Bible, followed by a “bless me” statement, which draws out the theme of the passage and applies it to daily life. The balance of each chapter then delves into the riches of God’s blessings and traces the chapter’s theme as it appears throughout the whole of the Scriptures. Life sometimes weighs us down with worries. Other times we burden ourselves with the bad choices we make. If you feel like you are dragging around a great load, then Bless Me until You’re Satisfied can help you. It reveals God’s answer to your prayers for assistance; it describes the riches of His blessings; it leads you to ask Him to bless you until He is satisfied and you are made whole.

Books Description:

During the Vietnam War, the US Air Force secretly trained pilots from Laos, skirting Lao neutrality in order to bolster the Royal Lao Air Force and their own war efforts. Beginning in 1964, this covert project, "Water Pump," operated out of Udorn Airbase in Thailand with the support of the CIA. This Secret War required recruits from Vietnam-border region willing to take great risks--a demand that was met by the marginalized Hmong ethnic minority. Soon, dozens of Hmong men were training at Water Pump and providing air support to the US-sponsored clandestine army in Laos. Short and problematic training that resulted in varied skill levels, ground fire, dangerous topography, bad weather conditions, and poor aircraft quality, however, led to a nearly 50 percent casualty rate, and those pilots who survived mostly sought refuge in the United States after the war. Drawing from numerous oral history interviews, Fly Until You Die brings their stories to light for the first time--in the words of those who lived it.

Books Description:

We are all presented with a ‘meaningless’ blank canvas at birth. The marks this canvas gathers over time are there to complete a picture – your picture. None of these marks are so permanent that you cannot erase them or paint over them. All of them, in some way, give meaning and significance to life. Some marks may appear to be running the picture while others are so precious that we think they are the picture. But, in the final analysis, any masterpiece includes both light and shade; the one is not more important than the other. The story of YOUR life is captured in YOUR picture. Take responsibility for your canvas and seek ways to paint a picture that will serve yourself and those around you. If it is a meaningful life you want, this is the book that will grow your understanding of meaning, deepen your relationship with yourself and others, and inspire you to create a life worth living.

Books Description:

If you think your forties were challenging—wait until you’re fifty. Just don’t wait until you’re fifty to read this book. It’s easier to handle this momentous change of life if you’re armed with good information, a sense of humor and, perhaps, a stiff drink. Fifty doesn’t happen overnight—the journey into midlife takes years and it’s different for everybody, female and male. Some start earlier, some start later, but in the end, it’s all the same: By the time you’re fifty adjustments are called for. This book is about helping women (and men, to some extent) navigate the changes that midlife brings. It gives credence, validity and voice to real concerns about entering middle age and practical advice on preserving and/or improving minds, bodies, desirability, confidence and creativity going forward. The book covers a broad range of topics from the perspective of midlife veterans, members of a silent majority of women that have a lot more to talk about than hot flashes and other physical manifestations of middle age. It is characterized by straightforward, conversational language, humorous anecdotes, helpful suggestions and an unwavering focus on reality, no matter how controversial or unorthodox. Women are hungry to hear about other women’s experiences in this area—and men are anxious to learn how to relate to the changing women in their lives as they are going through their own changes. They are all looking for relief—comic and otherwise. “Wait Until You’re Fifty” focuses less on menopause and more on the perspective changes, little murders and unexpected awakenings that midlife precipitates, such as: the permanently empty nest (farewell to fertility), midlife love (a whole other affair), and re-prioritizing friendship (who will be there for the back fifty?). MINDY LITTMAN HOLLAND wrote this book based on personal experience and interviews with dozens of women and men who had something to say about the joys and adversities of midlife. In addition to writing non-fiction, she writes long and short fiction. She lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
