There are several thousand, if not millions of married men who are in the closet today. For the majority of these men, dating, marriage, family and careers have kept them there. Fears of separation from family, loss of friends, and loss of job are those things which cause them to hide behind the mask of heterosexual male. These men had little if no opportunity to explore this after adolescence. Many lived in small towns across the country. They have lived with fear, anxiety and guilt. Many successfully hid it from their wives. Some did not. The evolution of the Internet opened many doors for these men. Statistics prove that coming out usually ends in divorce. Not My Father's Footsteps takes a look at one such journey an odyssey that in less than a year took him from inside the closet to a new life outside. It is a journey of love and torment, and finding love again. It is the story of seedy spas and confinement in the psychiatric ward for a brief time. By going back to his roots, he has been able to come out of his darkness and into the light of being a gay man.

This book is a synopsis of my life with the intention of showing how God intervened in my life, and how I reacted to circumstances He created for me for the benefit of others. It is a book of brokenness and healing. It is a book about how He took away all my crutches and left me with nothing to cling to but Himself. It is about my life in the worst of personal situations—where my life ended at Clingman’s Dome and how I was reborn, with an injection of hope from Him, in the same instant. It is about God’s preservation of my life for His purpose. It is about the joy found around the dining table, about the disintegration of my family, and about how God put it back together the way He saw fit. My life started at the edge of a cotton field in the middle of World War II with a life-threatening disease attacking me before I reached one year of age. It is about my total lack of social skills and how God prepared me for higher education in preparation for speaking in front of a thousand people. My life was a battleground with Satan’s attempt to destroy me, and God who intervened at the last second. Being His child assures me that nothing can happen to me without God’s approval, and I have shared those events in this book. It is a book of spiritual warfare with God as the victor and me as the prize.

If the midterm elections were a declaration of war on the status quo, Rand Paul leads the battle charge. Voters fearful of growing government and debt have found voice in the Tea Party phenomenon and the movement continues to deliver a message that Washington, D.C. has found impossible to ignore. In THE TEA PARTY GOES TO WASHINGTON, the newly elected senator and self-described "constitutional conservative" explains why his party has to stand by its limited government rhetoric and why the federal government must be stuffed back into its constitutional box. Given the problems our nation faces, these are not mere suggestions, but moral imperatives. Rand Paul and those who voted for him want to stop borrowing, end the bailouts, and entitlements and the spending. In THE TEA PARTY GOES TO WASHINGTON you'll learn: The history of the Tea Party and why it isn't "extreme" How both parties operate outside the Constitution Rand's plan for a balanced budget Why the Tea Party will endure Now is the time to get America back on track-- this is the moment of the new revolution that will take us back to our grass roots, to the country of our founding fathers. It's a new day in Washington-- as the Tea Party graduates from populist outrage to political influence, Rand Paul stands poised to become one of its greatest champions.

"The best wartime memoir written by a Canadian."--The Toronto Star It was an era of hope, heroism, and upheaval, a time of tragedy and unexpected humor. Now, through an extraordinary series of original letters exchanged with his parents, along with a connecting narrative, Farley Mowat brings those pivotal World War II years back to life, re-creating his own experiences as a member of the First Canadian Infantry--a division that fought its way up the Italian "boot" in a series of savage and bloody battles.This continuation of the story related in And No Birds Sang is perhaps Farley Mowat's most personal work to date. My Father's Son is not only a remarkable evocation of a bygone era of innocence and idealism but also a testament to family loyalty and affection--a record of the enduring love between a father and a son.

WHAT IF YOUR FATHER ISN'T WHO YOU THOUGHT HE WAS? "I turn up the volume as a woman at a news desk announces, ‘This just in...the alleged DB25 monster has been arrested.' Good. The camera switches from the anchor to a mug shot...and it is my face—or at least my face as it will look thirty years from now...A new image replaces the full-screen mug shot as I see two cops hustling my handcuffed father into the back of a police car." Kevin has to face the worst imaginable possibility: that his father may be the man responsible for a series of vicious killings. How much does he really know about his father? "A fast-paced and sometimes disturbing look at families and violent crime and its many victims, seen and unseen." - Kirkus Reviews
