Catherine Bailey has been enjoying the single life long enough to know a catch when she sees one. Gorgeous, charismatic and spontaneous, Lee seems almost too perfect to be true. And her friends clearly agree, as each in turn falls under his spell. But what begins as flattering attentiveness and passionate sex turns into raging jealousy, and Catherine soon learns there is a darker side to Lee. His increasingly erratic, controlling behaviour becomes frightening, but no one believes her when she shares her fears. Increasingly isolated and driven into the darkest corner of her world, a desperate Catherine plans a meticulous escape. Four years later, Lee is behind bars and Catherine—now Cathy—compulsively checks the locks and doors in her apartment, trusting no one. But when an attractive upstairs neighbour, Stuart, comes into her life, Cathy dares to hope that happiness and love may still be possible . . . until she receives a phone call informing her of Lee’s impending release. Soon after, Cathy thinks she catches a glimpse of the former best friend who testified against her in the trial; she begins to return home to find objects subtly rearranged in her apartment, one of Lee’s old tricks. Convinced she is back in her former lover’s sights, Cathy prepares to wrestle with the demons of her past for the last time. Utterly convincing in its portrayal of obsession, Into the Darkest corner is an ingeniously structured and plotted tour de force of suspense that marks the arrival of a major new talent.

Life is joyful, beautiful and a rich blessing, but also difficult, painful and mysterious. This profound and practical book looks at how the Christian spiritual tradition has tried to understand the part suffering plays within human growth and our experience of God. Suffering can ask questions of us and impel us to live for what is really important - it can also diminish us and stunt our growth. What makes the difference? This book helps all engaged in pastoral care or spiritual direction explore that question for themselves and with others. From Julian of Norwich gazing at Christ entering the depths of our difficulty, to the terrors of the 'dark night of the soul' experienced by St John of the Cross, to the poets George Herbert and Gerard Manley Hopkins who, like Jacob, wrestled with God, this rich book helps us see that even in a desolate and trackless wasteland, we are in the company of pilgrims across time and can glimpse a hidden Promised Land. Through these different windows we are encouraged not to cling to suffering, nor to flee from its threat, but to discover within it the work of a resourceful, creative and compassionate God.

Against his better judgment, he takes Paula with him. The resulting adventure puts Carlton in the uncomfortable position of learning who he can trust and who he can't, a tall order for someone with the social skills of a rattlesnake.

The Black Madonna Within

Author : Tataya Mato
ISBN : 0812692497
Genre : Psychology
File Size : 51.84 MB
Format : PDF, ePub
Download : 285

This is the story, in words and pictures, of one woman's quest for wholeness and release from despair. Fighting the scars of abuse and a war-ravaged childhood, Tataya Mato looked inward - to her dreams and active imaginations, and to her drawings, which increasingly became pervaded by the luminous presence of the divine feminine figure, the Black Madonna. Long a folk image in Europe, the Black Madonna archetype has recently begun to appear in the dreams and other unconscious material of hundreds of North American women and men. Some Jungian thinkers have identified this striking phenomenon with the emergence of a latent feminine force, demanding conscious recognition. The collective dream pattern, so often in advance of consciousness, here asserts a new caring relationship to the Earth and all its creatures. The Black Madonna Within includes 191 of Tataya's drawings, offering insight and healing through their development from the earliest and most naive images to their more mature artistic form. The drawings are accompanied by the artist-author's poignant narrative text.
