The minute Tess Phillips crossed the finish line in the Chicago Marathon, her life began to change. As the female winner in this year’s race, she was handed a check for fifty thousand dollars! The money would keep her fledgling recycling business afloat for awhile, but there was one catch. If she wanted to keep the money, she had to let a local sports writer shadow her for an entire week. Although Tess didn’t mind sharing her training tips, she couldn’t afford to have a reporter prying into her personal life. Especially a reporter like Nick Bartholomew. With his mocking grin, his aggressive style, and his intense blue eyes, Nick wouldn’t let one detail slip by. Once Nick started nosing around, Tess’s business problems were sure to leak out. She had to avoid him – even if he was the most attractive man she’d ever met. From the start, Nick Bartholomew was not pleased with this assignment. He was sure that Tess Phillips was a complete fraud. No one could win a marathon on their first try. But one look at Tess’s clear blue eyes made Nick doubt his reporter’s instincts. They weren’t the eyes of a hustler. They were too trusting, too vulnerable. If a man stared into Tess Phillips’s eyes long enough, he would begin to believe in all sorts of fairy tales. Before he lost his objectivity, Nick had to cut to the chase. It was time to uncover Tess’s secret—and he was the best man for the job. "Margaret Watson, a star in the world of contemporary romance, grabs you on the opening page and keeps you reading to the happily ever after." -- New York Times bestselling author Susan Elizabeth Phillips.

A memoir from the first American woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. “Not only [Buck’s] most important book, but—on many counts—her best book” (Kirkus Reviews). Often regarded as one of Pearl S. Buck’s most significant works, My Several Worlds is the memoir of a major novelist and one of the key American chroniclers of China. Buck, who was born to missionary parents in 1892, spent much of the first portion of her life in China, experiencing the Boxer Rebellion first hand and becoming involved with the society with an intimacy available to few outside observers. The book is not only an important reflection on that nation’s modern history, but also an account of her re-engagement with America and the intense activity that characterized her life there, from her prolific novel-writing to her loves and friendships to her work for abandoned children and other humanitarian causes. As alive with incident as it is illuminating in its philosophy, My Several Worlds is essential reading for travelers and readers alike. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Pearl S. Buck including rare images from the author’s estate.

Personal transformation, liberation, and fulfillment can be discovered by anyone, anywhere, anytime, in the message and modeling of Jesus, not by denying or changing creed, race, gender, sexual orientation, or culture, but by freely manifesting the fullness of psychological and spiritual fulfillment. Jesus taught and modeled a universal, inclusive spirituality. This book illustrates that Jesus simultaneously taught and modeled the highest form of behavioral psychology applying to everyone, everywhere. The focus herein is a reexamination and reintroduction of the life and lessons of Jesus of Nazareth from a behavioral and inclusively spiritual point of view across creeds and cultures beyond religion. Those who study and practice the spiritual tenets of diverse religions and nonaffiliated spiritual pathways apart from Christianity will recognize shared experience, belief, and practice in the behavioral and spiritual lessons taught and modeled by Jesus. Therefore, this book is written for all people, religious and secular, inclusive of creed, race, gender, sexual orientation, and culture, who believe in an infinite, permeating principle that births and joins all of Creation, that is known by any name, form, or substance (God, Goddess, Father, Mother, Yahweh, Allah, Great Spirit, Grandmother, Grandfather, Creator, Maker, One, New Physics, et al.) from which all Creation springs, from which Creation cannot be separated, and through which we become the most transcendent and liberated of our human selves.

Rachel Toor was a bookish egghead who ran only to catch a bus. How such an unlikely athlete became a runner of ultramarathons is the story of Personal Record, an exhilarating meditation on the making, and the minutiae, of a runner s life. The food, the clothes, the races, the injuries, the watch (and Toor loves her watch) are all essential to the runner, as readers discover here, and discover why. A chronicle of Toor s relationship with the sport of running, from her early incarnation as an Oreo-eating couch potato to her emergence as a hard-bodied marathoner, this book explores the sport of running, the community it brings into being, and the personal satisfaction of pursuing it to its limit. Alternating with Toor s account of becoming a runner are the stories meditations, examinations, celebrations of how runners become a pack. An homage to running, a literary take on how an activity can turn into a passion, and how a passion can become a way of life, this book runs all the way from individual achievement a personal record to the world of friendship and belonging, the community that runners inevitably find.
