Passionate undercurrents sweep in and out of this eloquent novel about a love affair in the summer countryside in Italy and its inevitable end. It takes place in a setting of pastoral beauty during a time of celebration -- a festival. Sophie, half English, half Italian, meets Tancredi, an Italian who is separated from his wife and family. In telling the story of their love affair, author Shirley Hazzard punctures the placid surface of polite Italian society to reveal the intense yearnings and surprising responses in sophisticated people caught up in emotions they do not always understand.

Shirley Hazzard: New Critical Essays is the first collection of scholarly essays on the work of the acclaimed Australian-born, New York-based author. In the course of the last half century, Hazzard's writing has crossed and re-crossed the terrain of love, war, beauty, politics and ethics. Hazzard's oeuvre effortlessly reflects and represents the author's life and times, encapsulating the prominent feelings, anxieties and questions of the second half of the 20th century. It is these qualities, along with Hazzard's lyrical style that place her among the most noteworthy Australian writers of the 20th century. Hazzard's work has been duly praised and admired by many including the critic Bryan Appleyard who describes her as 'the greatest living writer on goodness and love'. In 2011, novelist Richard Ford observed: 'If there has to be one best writer working in English today it's Shirley Hazzard.'

Before, during, and after World War II, three generations of men make their mark on the world in acclaimed author Dorothy Salisbury Davis’s vibrant, thought-provoking novel that scrutinizes the conscience of men in a time of crisis As Europe slides toward war, the faculty of a midwestern university fight a crusade of their own—the campaign against Communism. The local publishing magnate has accused economics professor Jonathan Hogan of being a Red, and the scholar is forced to defend himself in front of the university’s elders. They spare him, for Hogan is no Communist—merely a free thinker, open and honest in an age when conformity is the norm. When war threatens the United States, he is one of those whom his country will need most. Jonathan goes into civil service during the war, advising the government on the economic impacts of the conflict. His son Marcus takes a different route, studying surgery in an attempt to heal those whom the savagery of war has maimed. And, years later, Jonathan’s grandson Tad will follow his own conscience, too, when he comes violently of age. But what are the consequences of standing by one’s principles in an era when darkness threatens to overwhelm civilization?

From the author of The Pleasing Hour: A “moving and deeply absorbing” novel of painful truths and the refuge of fiction set in a New England prep school (Newsday). A Chicago Tribune and Publishers Weekly Best Novel Fifteen years ago, English teacher Vida Avery arrived alone and pregnant at the elite Fayer Academy. Living on the campus off the coast of New England, she worked to become a beloved fixture of the school—and to shelter herself and her son, Peter, from a painful secret she left behind. Then she accepts the impulsive marriage proposal of ardent widower Tom Belou, and the prescribed life Vida has constructed begins to come apart. As Peter bonds with Tom and his new stepsiblings, Vida retreats further into the books she teaches. To embrace life and a chance at happiness, she will have to face the nightmares of her former self—and shed the pain she has held onto for far too long. Following her multiple award-winning debut, The Pleasing Hour, Lily King has written a “domestic drama with the adrenalin-fueled beating heart of a thriller” (Elle). “King is a wonderfully engaging writer who creates characters and situations we can’t resist.” —The Washington Post

Over the past 10 years there has been a keen interest in Jewish Studies as it relates to Christianity and I wanted to help bring authentic information regarding Judaism to several audiences that will bring each from a near ideologue to ideologues. As I traveled I noticed some people were familiar with terms from Judaism but did not know the meaning of the terms, traditions or protocols. I hope to lay a foundation of Judaism with Christians, media professionals and those who serve politically. There are several compelling reasons to present Judaism to an audience that are interested in the Jewish roots of the Christian Bible. There is an apologetic perspective whereby many Christians have nagging questions about the Bible and even frustrated regarding where to find the actual answers. This book provides many of those answers. God requires all Christians to have understanding about Christianity and the belief system they adhere to. The answers to Judaism as it pertains to our Old and New Testament are not obvious and require a command of Judaism to include the Tanakh and the Talmud that provide answers and explanations of what the Old and New Testaments are really saying. Any person who reads this 179 page book will have a command of Judaism and how it relates to Christianity that is above average and will also have an authentic perspective not a romantic perspective. Christianity without realizing it can push Jews far from them especially Orthodox Jews because we do not understand their scheme of thinking and how esoteric their beliefs are. To connect with Jews one must understand how they think and find the wisdom regarding their beliefs and values. The book is powerful and will provide insight as to Israel and their raison d etre or the purpose that justifies a things existence. Israel was designed to be a leadership nation to the entire world and is still in birth pains with regards to this God ascribed objective. To give you a hint to some of the conclusions I will share this much with you. God has given every people group a purpose in relationship to the entire world to make a unique contribution. The ancient Phoenicians contributed mathematics for example that benefited the entire planet. The Greeks contributed literature that are still beloved writings of antiquity for the entire planet to enjoy. Israel is the only nation and people group given the two-fold objective to receive the law directly from God and secondly to disseminate Gods law to the entire planet. These laws are the only laws that could keep the planet sound and congruent to Gods system and His way of doing things. In the midst of this two-fold purpose God chose Israel to bring forth our Messiah. Only Israel was set aside to bring forth Messiah who would save the entire world. If it werent for Judaism there would be no Christianity. The Christian Old Testament is translated verbatim from the Tanakh or the Jewish Bible in a different sequence but the books are the same. I have given you much from the book already but there is a lot more so enjoy the book and may God answer many of your questions.
