Book Summary :

From #1 bestselling author Isla Dean comes the third novella in the One Night Collection, ONE SPRING NIGHT. Mystery writer, Kara Keaton, moved to small town Stonebridge to start her life over after her husband’s death. Between writing, renovating the hundred-year-old home she purchased, and trying to figure out how to keep the plants in her greenhouse alive, she stays busy. But not so busy that she doesn’t enjoy her daily visits to the Plumber’s Pub where the cheer of the town rings long and loud. And it certainly isn't a hardship to watch the stoic and sexy Ben Roberts behind the bar. The steadiest of the siblings, Ben's love and pride in being part of his family's pub is palpable. He's a straight-shooter--when it's important--with a strong stature and golden eyes that show darker hints of what runs deep within him. And from the day he meets the mysterious Kara, he’s a man who knows what he wants. He just hasn't found a way into her world. Yet. With a spring storm barreling through the quaint New England town, Kara begins to let down her guard, and starts to understand that her heart truly is ready to love again. SPECIAL NOTE TO READERS: Each book in the One Night Collection is a standalone novella, featuring new characters with a story all their own, that takes place over the course of one night. The exception to this is One Summer Night (coming summer 2016!) which features a fun roundup of all the main characters in the collection as they come together for a fabulous Fourth of July celebration.

Meara Quinn is Branna’s best friend, a sister in all but blood. Her and Connor’s paths cross almost daily, as Connor takes tourists on hawk walks and Meara guides them on horseback across the lush countryside.

Plenty of women have found their way to Connor’s bed, but none to his heart until now. Frustratingly, Meara is okay with just the heat, afraid to lose herself—and their friendship—to something more. But soon, Connor will see the full force and fury of what runs in his blood. And he will need his family and friends around him when his past rolls in like the fog, threatening an end to all he loves… Don’t miss the other books in the Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy Dark Witch Blood Magick From the Trade Paperback edition.

Book Summary :

Victor Peters is back with another spell bound story set in the exotic backgrounds of China and the Middle East. Once again Peters plays in the playground of the ultra rich and powerful people of various continents where people of all races, creed and social level fight for ultimate power. This is a story of an International global power game and revenge, of economic maneuvers in order to gain that little edge over the competition and of political bickering and infighting that more often than not leads to cataclysmic events. The author has a unique gift of capturing the twists and ironies of fate. His insights into the ambitions and passions of his characters are brilliant. The girls are gorgeous and ready to protect Peters, some for love and others for selfish motives.

Book Summary :

Silent Spring is a watershed moment in the history of environmentalism. Credited with launching the modern environmental movement, it provoked the ban on DDT in the US ten years later and it has been an inspiration for feminist health movements. Yet the shift in public health paradigms that Silent Spring enjoined is possibly its most important legacy; one that is foundational for changing the ways in which we think about the health effects of the chemical immersion that constitutes modern life. In synthesizing a jumble of scientific and medical information into a coherent, readable argument about health and environment, Carson successfully challenged major chemical industries and the prevailing paradigm that modern societies could and should exert mastery over nature at any cost. This book provides an in-depth analysis and contextualisation of Silent Spring. It also surveys the lasting impact the text has had on the environmentalist movement in the last fifty years. Carson's Silent Spring is the first book to provide a full overview of what is a seminal work in the history of environmentalism.

Book Summary :

Sachiko Takata was 14 years-old when an atomic bomb dropped on her hometown of Hiroshima, Japan. In an instant her world was changed. Her mother died shortly after Japan's surrender. The devastation of war and the loss of her mother awakened in Sachiko's heart a deep resolve to devote her life to building a world of peace where the dignity of all human beings is respected and the peril and haunting specter of nuclear war is nonexistent. Given her experience with war, it was ironic that she would marry an American soldier, LeRoy Bailey. It was in the United States that she was introduced to Nichiren Buddhism and credits her practice of Buddhism, as well as her mentor, Daisaku Ikeda, with saving and transforming her life. Through his example, she was able to learn how to tap the innate power of her spirit to weather life's storms; to change poison into medicine; to win over all obstacles, and to turn winter into spring. Because of her growth and understanding of life, Sachiko Takata Bailey now thinks of August 6, 1945, as Victory Day, because the victorious and optimistic person she became emerged from the ashes and ruins of Hiroshima.

Book Summary :

“These are all warning markers-DANGER!-in our history book, written down so that we don’t repeat their mistakes. Our positions in the story are parallel-they at the beginning, we at the end - and we are just as capable of messing it up as they were. Don’t be so naive and self-confident. You’re not exempt...” I Cor. 10:11-12 (The Message Bible). Just like these multitudes of Israelites that left Egypt (bondage) for Canaan (God’s fullness, completeness and blessings), you as a Christian and believer in Jesus Christ are embarking on a similar spiritual journey. God has offered a Canaan Land opportunity to you as an individual, but the opposition to your seizing it can be threatening and formidable. What are the oppositions that God has allowed in your path? Maybe it is health issues, loss of relationships, joblessness, financial hardship, business failure or some other severe trials? Are there things that have you trapped in bitterness and discouragement? Then the story in this book may really apply to where you are right now with God. You may be getting ready to have your door opened to enter into your Promised Land. However, you are well aware of the giants and Canaanites with heavily fortified cities that you will be coming against if this door opens up for you. Will you affirm the giants and Canaanites with heavily fortified cities, like the generation that perished or the promise and faith of Joshua and Caleb?
