"If people bring so much courage to this world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially."The greatest American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms cemented Ernest Hemingway's reputation as one of the most important novelists of the twentieth century. Drawn largely from Hemingway's own experiences, it is the story of a volunteer ambulance driver wounded on the Italian front, the beautiful British nurse with whom he falls in love, and their journey to find some small sanctuary in a world gone mad with war. By turns beautiful and tragic, tender and harsh and realistic, A Farewell to Arms is one of the supreme literary achievements of our time.

Small-town secrets are revealed in the wake of a Catholic priest’s murder in upstate New York in this heart-stopping novel from an Edgar Award–winning author. Two decades ago, the tiny New York hamlet of Bessemer was horrorstruck when a young Catholic priest was savagely bludgeoned to death in the middle of a blinding winter deluge. No one was ever charged with the crime, so when police beat reporter Ed Sperl listens to an old recording of journalists talking about the sensational case, he’s stunned to notice something: the tiniest of connections that no one has made before. The new evidence compels him to investigate further than he thought possible—and further than some people would like. The woman who made the recording, Bessemer reporter Marlee West, is still dealing with the shadow that has hung over her small town since that terrible night. And she fears that her colleague’s curiosity has awakened a nightmare from the past. But the killer is already closer than she dares to imagine. From an author known for both true crime and suspense, including the Edgar Award winner Carolina Skeletons, this is a chilling thriller that “will surprise even the most astute mystery reader” (Publishers Weekly).

Still No Ice at the Fish Market opens with a bomb exploding in the midst of lovemaking and ends up as one of the most innovative literary experiments in years. Two narrators, Eddie Ambler and his former fiance Marsha Beauregard, unfold a harrowing but hilarious tale in alternating chapters, making a fillet of Poe and Southern Gothic storytellers. Eddie writes in huge, impassioned sentences with pyrotechnic imagery while dodging bombs galore. The woman he has loved and lost but hopes to win again confronts the chaos with exceptional clarity and precision. In the final chapter, after Marsha helps deliver Eddie from his nightmares, their divergent styles unite in deeper love, becoming indistinguishable. As the genius who guides these eerie games, the ghost of Poe is exorcised decisively in this rollicking, redemptive respite from the Gothic!

Sermons And Discourses 1743 1758

Author : Jonathan Edwards

Genre : Religion
File Size : 25.8 MB
Format : PDF

This wide-ranging volume covers the final fifteen of the thirty-three years that Jonathan Edwards preached and includes some of his greatest sermons--including his Farewell Sermons to his Northampton congregation. The period is defined by Edwards' inventive strategies to improvise during the delivery of his sermons. Considering dependence on the written text in the pulpit to be a serious failing, he devised a double-columned, outlined format for his sermon manuscripts and continued to use it for the rest of his life. Sermons from this period also include those preached to Mahican and Mohawk Indians at the mission post of Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Edwards' various writings of 1743-58 map the complex terrain of his spiritual, intellectual, and professional life after the Great Awakening. He deals with topics ranging from the spiritual role of youth in the community to the struggles over communion in his Northampton congregation to the war with the French and their Indian allies.

Originally published in 1981 and long out of print, this dual autobiography covers five unforgettable decades of the New York sporting life from 1915 to 1965. Told initially from the point of view of Frank Graham, premier sportswriter for The New York Sun, A Farewell to Heroes also includes the chronicles of Frank, Jr., who picks up the narrative as he becomes a sports journalist in his own right. Frank Graham, Sr., was a self-taught writer known for his uncanny ability to capture the high drama of a game-winning play or the color of a fight mob's conversation in spare, straightforward prose. As a reporter, he covered the rough-and-tumble Giants of John McGraw's day and continued through boxing's greatest era, spanning the reigns of Jack Dempsey and Joe Louis. As the younger Frank tells more of the story, we watch Lou Gehrig take Babe Ruth's place as the Yankees' star and then trace his glorious career to its tragic conclusion. We see firsthand the legendary Branch Rickey and Jackie Robinson and boxing's brief but golden age on television in the 1950s. Aided by sixteen photographs and preserving the most masterful of his father's writing while adding to it the best of his own, Frank Graham, Jr., has given the sports fan A Farewell to Heroes, perhaps the ultimate sports reminiscence of a time when the romance of sport gave life a golden hue, when heroes still roamed the earth. -In what he calls this 'kind of dual autobiography, ' he is his father's son, having learned to look and listen as his father did and still go his own way, - says W. C. Heinz, longtime sportswriter for The New York Sun, in his new foreword to this paperback edition.

The body of 92-year-old Jossi Goldberg, Holocaust survivor and American citizen, is found shot to death execution style in his house near Frankfurt. A five-digit number is scrawled in blood at the murder scene. The autopsy reveals an old and unsuccessfully covered tattoo on the corpse's arm—a blood type marker once used by Hitler's SS. Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver Bodenstein are faced with a riddle. Was the old man not Jewish after all? Who was he, really? Two more, similar murders happen—one of a wheelchair-bound old lady in a nursing home, and one of a man with a cellar filled with Nazi paraphernalia—and slowly the connections between the victims becomes evident: All of them were lifelong friends with Vera von Kaltensee, baroness, well-respected philanthropist, and head of an old, rich family that she rules with an iron fist. Pia and Oliver follow the trail, which leads them all the way back to the end of World War II and the area of Poland that then belonged to East Prussia. No one is who they claim to be, and things only begin to make sense when the two investigators realize what the bloody number stands for, and uncover an old diary and an eyewitness who is finally willing to come forward. Nele Neuhaus's The Ice Queen is a character- and plot-driven mystery about revenge, power, and long-forgotten and covered up secrets from a time in German history that still affects the present.

It's the middle of the twenty-first century, and the next Ice Age has suddenly sent global warming into reverse. Saul is one of the Ice People, the threatened peoples of the northern hemisphere, who, watching their world freeze over, try to move south towards the equator... 'Excellent ... intelligent, driven, imaginative, obsessive yet still gracious, one of our best ... Exciting stuff.' Fay Weldon 'Ambitious and subtle... She writes elegantly, unsentimentally, expertly... The Ice People works persuasively as science fiction, and is truthful about our emotional lives.' Independent 'Infused with poetic intensity ... this is a gripping fictional realisation of what we fear: the death of civilisation. Maggie Gee achieves her apocalyptic vision without the clank of hardware and intergalactic wars. Her detail is precise and controlled and her beautifully orchestrated whisper of redemption is rooted in eternal myth.' Elizabeth Buchan The Times 'An intriguing novel of ideas, fully fleshed out ... Classy science fiction.' Mail on Sunday 'A remarkable novel... up there with Orwell and Huxley.' Jeremy Paxman 'A gem of a book.' Rose Tremain 'A rattling good page-turning yarn.' George Melly 'A fantastic book' Mariella Frostrup

After thirty six years of escorting active adults, (often referred to as Senior Citizens”), on numerous destinations throughout the world, including day trips or short “getaways”, throughout Washington State or British Columbia, I have been encouraged to “Write a Book”. Now I know what you’re thinking: “Not another boring travel book”. So, what I intend to do is to share some of the experiences my wife, Diane and I have experienced, hoping you will enjoy the journey with us. Therefore I dedicate this book to Diane, who has been the spark that ignited many of the ideas that culminated in making so many dreams come true for hundreds of people in many different ways. This was more than a “job” for us, but rather a “calling” that resulted in us forming “DON-DIANE FUNTOURS” which ultimately became our “Travel Family”. If you are one of our “Travel Family”, or have been, we hope you will relive a memory or two. If you are wondering what this is all about, I thank you for reading, and hope you will be rewarded with a smile, or a laugh as you discover for the first time that being on an escorted tour can reward you with much more than a few days or weeks exploring a new or revisited place, but perhaps be, “Just what the doctor ordered” as you have fun and “let go”, opening up yourselves to new people, places events, and yes, food! Come with me as we visit our friends throughout Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Alaska, Mexico, South America, New Guinea, Turkey, the Orient, United States, Africa, Canada, numerous cruises on a variety of ships sizes, and so much more! I hope you will discover the fun of travel as you enrich your own journey in life!

“A top-notch thriller, one of the best of the genre” (Minneapolis Star Tribune) from international crime-writing sensation Camilla Läckberg tells the story of brutal murders in a small Swedish fishing village, and the shattering, decades-old secrets that precipitated them. In this electrifying tale of suspense from an international crime-writing sensation, a grisly death exposes the dark heart of a Scandinavian seaside village. Erica Falck returns to her tiny, remote hometown of Fjällbacka, Sweden, after her parents’ deaths only to encounter another tragedy: the suicide of her childhood best friend, Alex. It’s Erica herself who finds Alex’s body—suspended in a bathtub of frozen water, her wrists slashed. Erica is bewildered: Why would a beautiful woman who had it all take her own life? Teaming up with police detective Patrik Hedström, Erica begins to uncover shocking events from Alex’s childhood. As one horrifying fact after another comes to light, Erica and Patrik’s curiosity gives way to obsession—and their flirtation grows into uncontrollable attraction. But it’s not long before one thing becomes very clear: a deadly secret is at stake, and there’s someone out there who will do anything—even commit murder—to protect it. Fans of Scandinavian greats Stieg Larsson and Henning Mankell will devour Camilla Läckberg’s penetrating portrait of human nature at its darkest.

This time his traveling companion will be a church deacon of the Emmanuel Baptist Church, Russ Coffin. Blackstone and Coffin travel to Kerala State to help in the dedication of the new Venmony Baptist Church sanctuary and parsonage built through the support of their ministry in Maine. Once again Pastor Blackstone is able to share the wonders and wants of India through the eyes of another adventurous traveler. Enjoy with them the fascination of watching a working elephant beside a rural road; the attempt of catching on film five people on a motorcycle at one time; a houseboat ride on Kerala's largest lake; listening to Russ's first sermon; graduation day at Kerala Baptist Bible College; an Indian barbeque of pancakes and omelets; of trying to find a bell for the college in the busy and confusing markets of one of Kerala's biggest cities; and an auto-rickshaw ride through rubber tree-lined lanes, banana grove-covered valleys, and an Indian road repair crew! As in his other India books, Though None Go with Me and Though One Go with Me, share the practical spiritual lessons Pastor Blackstone learned on this, his third India journey and his first mission trip to the State of Andrah Pradesh as the guest evangelist for the Independent Gospel Baptist Churches of India. Share in the personal experience of a daylong journey on the infamous Indian railway into the backcountry of central India, of driving a bullock cart, eating an Indian catfish, making friends with a dog named Ellie, preaching in a thatched-roof church, being surprised by a police raid at four in the morning, and witnessing more people coming to Christ at one time than at any other time in the pastor's ministry. Journey for a month into the unpredictable land of India and enjoy the surprises around each corner as Pastor Blackstone travels to three Indian states and gets to meet fellow pastors from five states. The fellowship will be sweet, the food will be hot, and the friendships made will be eternal!
