Over three decades, civil war instilled deep fear and hate among millions in the multi-ethnic country of Sri Lanka. In 2009, when the army finally defeated the Tamil Tigers guerrillas, about 300,000 civilians were swept up in the end game, and estimates say the death toll exceeded 40,000. Peace was celebrated. But what is an ordinary life in the aftermath of war? Rohini Mohan's searing account of three lives caught up in the devastation shows how war continues long after the cessation of hostilities. When city-bred Sarva is dragged off the streets by state forces, his mother, Indra, searches for him through the labyrinthine Sri Lankan system. Meanwhile, Mugil, once a child soldier with the Tigers, tries to rebuild her life as a civilian, hiding her past, first in refugee camps and finally in a new settlement far from her family home. Their turbulent journeys reveal the realities of day-to-day life in a tumultuous postwar world wracked by violence and mistrust. The Seasons of Trouble is the result of five years' reportage -a startling and brutal, yet beautifully written debut from a prize-winning journalist.

In this rendering, the Psalms become once again what they were for Christian believers from the very beginning: the hymnal of the Church. They remain, certainly, the songs of Israel: from its cries of lamentation to its shouts of exultation. But for the Christian reader, they become as well hymns of petition and praise that express both the joy and the longing of those who live 'in Christ' . . . At the same time their very language can convey to us the assurance that, as he has throughout the millennia, God hears our prayer and responds to it with boundless mercy, love, and compassion. --from the Preface by Fr. John Breck Professor Sheehan's brief introductory exposition of the Davidic roots of Psalms and the poetics of chiasmus guides us in understanding how the ruining oppositions of actual experience are held in Psalms within the musical disciplines of lyric art: held, until God Himself can be seen in the ruins: seen, and felt, and overwhelmingly and gratefully loved. The psalmist's world doesn't change as he turns his experience toward God. What changes is he himself. How he changes is toward acquiring the very mind of Christ, to which each of us is called.

Jonathon has only just moved to New Zealand, the outlook for him feels as bleak as the frozen winter landscape until he befriends local boy Taylor.

There, under the guidance of a reclusive sage, they are given insights into Nature and the human condition as they are initiated into the Ancient Chinese teachings known as 'the Elements of Man'. The unlikely pair are propelled on a powerful quest for understanding where they encounter mystical creatures and energies. With the unfolding of the seasons, the secrets of the park and of Nature itself, are revealed to them as they teeter towards a test of their own faith and courage. The Seasons Within meshes past and present, the physical and metaphysical, to produce an enchanting tale that illuminates as it entertains.
