Sixty seconds. That’s how long it took for Elizabeth Jackson’s world to collapse. A normal day, a cold street – and all at once everything is gone. Twenty one years. That’s how long Alby Levin knows he’s been in love with his best friend, Elizabeth. So when she moves into his London apartment, lost, but full of life – he has to question: Is she back for truth about their past, or something else entirely? “Completely addictive.” – Ruth Buck. “Suspenseful romance that’s as easy to read as it is uplifting. A world I’d love to live in.” – Kylie Morrison “I feel like this story belongs to me. First you fall for Tessa and then you fall for Alby… and the two of them together? Magic.” – Cynthia House “Romance. Love. As it should be, worth a read.” – Jennifer Lee
Israel expected the Messiah to be a conquering hero who would liberate the Jews from their Roman servitude. But instead, Christ came as a suffering servant to liberate all mankind from slavery to sin. The Gospel of Mark records Christ's public ministry as a journey to the Cross, yet-paradoxically again-as a time of vigorous action when His miracles astounded the multitudes, and His boldness infuriated His foes.About the commentary series This commentary was written for your grandmother. And for your plumber, your banker, and the girl who serves you French Fries at the nearby McDonald's. That is, it was written for the average layperson, for the nonprofessional who feels a bit intimidated by the presence of copious footnotes, long bibliographies, and all those other things which so enrich the lives of academics. It is written for the pious Orthodox layman who is mystified by such things as Source Criticism, but who nonethe wants to know what the Scriptures mean.

A RIP-ROARING, PULSE-POUNDING FLORIDA PUZZLER... “A ripping good yarn … an exciting tale.” —Publishers Weekly “...
an imaginative plot, some rousing action, a black-hearted villain, a cute kid, some gently ironic humor, and a heroine who's appealing without being perfect.” —Booklist As intricate as a fisherman’s net, Riptide fairly writhes with sinister delights—family secrets, family feuds, lost family fortunes, betrayals, puzzles, sunken treasure… and murder, of course. With a bit of illicit romance and treachery thrown in for seasoning. This rife atmosphere swirls around New york artist Isabel Anders, who’s summoned home to tiny St. Elmo, Florida to deal with an emergency: the aunt who raised her has been brutally—and mysteriously—injured. Isabel arrives to find the family mansion in ruins, her aunt living in a trailer, and, dangerous as a cottonmouth, the lover she left at sixteen just where he used to be. Waiting for her. Except now he’s got a grudge against her, a secret of his own, and some unsavory companions. Just when Isabel’s aunt seems to be getting better (but before she’s able to talk again) she dies just as mysteriously as she was injured. Suspecting murder, Isabel quickly ties her aunt’s death to another. But to find the killer, she has to hack her way through a small-town jungle of intrigue and several generations of interrelated secrets, producing hours of pulse-pounding delight for the confirmed puzzle fan.

Sayers herself, all BBC mysteries, and of course, Michaela Thompson’s own Hurricane Season.

At the beginning of a new writing project--whether it's the first page of a new novel or a ambitious project, writers often experience exhilaration, fear, or dread. For Kristjana Gunnars, the call of a new project is "like someone you don't know knocking on your door--you either choose to let the person in or not. It's both exciting and dangerous to start a new manuscript." This book is an engagement with that "stranger" called writing. Creative or imaginative writing is a complex process that involves more than intellect alone. Writers make use of everything: their sensibilities, history, culture, knowledge, experience, education, and even their biology. These essays seek out, and gather into a discussion, what writers have said about their own experiences in writing. Although the writers are from around the world and of very different backgrounds, the commonality of their remarks brings home the realization that writers everywhere are grappling with similar problems--with the seemingly simple problems of when, where, why, and what to write, but also larger questions such as the relationship between writer and society, or issues of privacy, appropriation, or homeness. While none of these questions can be definitively answered, they can be fruitfully discussed. Originating as questions posed in creative-writing seminars, these essays have grown into companion texts for both writers and readers who want to participate in a conversation about what writers do.
