His abusive family tore him away from her.
Would destiny be enough to bring him back?
At ten years old, Chris didn't have good looks, a caring family, or a bright future. But what he did have for three years was the love of Danielle, his beautiful neighbor on Fairhaven Street who showed him a glimpse of a life he desperately wanted.
To escape his abusive father, Chris was forced to move out of state with his mother to the icy hills of Michigan. All he could leave Danielle with was half of a heart-shaped pendant and a promise that he would one day return for her. To have any chance of getting her back, he had to end over one hundred years of abuse in his family, something his family claimed he was destined to carry on. All he had to keep going over the years was his half of the pendant, tarnished from his refusal to take it off.
Destiny Lives on Fairhaven Street is a touching memoir from author C.J. Hudson of his eight-year journey of preparation t ...

"While most dog owners are well aware of the importance of providing their furry friends with regular veterinarian checkups, many aren't aware of the steps they can personally take to ensure the optimal health of their dogs.

"I never thought I would have reason to say to someone, 'Sorry I’m late, it took longer to dismember the goat than originally planned.'" I was twenty-six years old, worked at a well-paid job, rented a fantastic apartment, and enjoyed a large circle of friends. I had everything, except I didn’t.

As you read this, someone is being diagnosed with IBS or ulcerative colitis and is worrying they’ll have to struggle with painful symptoms for the rest of their lives. Did that happen to you, like it did for me? Does the thought of stomach pains, diarrhoea, constipation, heartburn, fear of foods causing bad reactions, and a ridiculously restrictive diet make you feel depressed and hopeless about the future?
It doesn’t have to be that way.
There are natural, powerful steps you can take to tackle IBS and ulcerative colitis effectively. It is possible to take back control of your health naturally – and live the vibrant life you were always supposed to.
My name is Marc McLean and I’m a health and wellness journalist and author based in Loch Lomond, Scotland. In October 2010, I was first diagnosed with IBS, and later developed severe ulcerative colitis. I was just 28-years-old, I ate a healthy diet, worked out religiously at the gym 4-5 days per week, didn’t smoke, and rarely drank alcohol. It all made zero sense. I didn’t accept the doctor’s verdict that I’d ‘just have to live with it’ and take pills for the rest of my life. This kickstarted a long, 10-year journey of going down a natural health path where I studied health, nutrition, and the workings of the body in-depth. I became obsessed with all things gut health, diet, and finding the natural health solutions that well-meaning doctors, consultants, and the smiley people who insert cameras up your r ...

People want to believe that when a loved one dies we remain connected through a universal system of love, knowledge and guidance. Paul Lambillion gives us evidence of such connections in his new book, Angels Looking Through. The most remarkable messages in Angels Looking Through come from the many cases of ordinary people Paul shares with us in which he uses the mediumistic abilities he was born with to facilitate conversations that bring greater understanding to the unfinished business left by death—the child who died, the marriage that was never happy but perhaps could have been, or to talk once more with someone much-loved sharing the personal details of what made their relationship precious. Such conversations start a process of healing, alleviation of guilt, or simply bring joy to the heart and confirmation that there is life after death.

Born in a California women’s prison in 1963, Laureen Pittman was relinquished for adoption. As a child, Laureen was conditioned to believe that being adopted didn’t matter. So, it didn’t . . . until it did. As with most sealed-records-era adoptions, the truth about Laureen’s birth in a California women’s prison in 1963 was carefully hidden and considered a shameful thing that happened to someone else over fifty years ago. But Laureen would not accept that some people still believed that the past should be hidden and denied in the name of "privacy," or to protect certain individuals from exposure to personal embarrassment, or a truth that would destroy some perfectly crafted life created out of secrecy, lies, and denial. It took nearly fifty years, but Laureen decided to make her own choices about what to do to fill in the blanks about her identity and she made a conscious choice to share her story. Through scraps of information, Laureen stitched together her history – one that started in the psychedelic sixties and ended up in a future where DNA could solve mysteries. She never imagined that spitting into a plastic tube, along with years of painstaking research and the explosion of technology, would reveal the answers to her identity and the rich family legacy shared with her biological father. Laureen’s tale is for anyone who has ever questioned who they are, where they came from, or how they fit in. Her journey to find her truth illustrates the strength and power of our uni ...

And how can you avoid wasting precious time?The book ‘The 4 Foundations of Love’ is based on a fascinating study, in which a great number of successful couples were interviewed for one purpose: to capture the essence of their unique relationship - what makes them keep loving their partner years after they have met, or even love them more.

Understand History's Most Enigmatic Serial Killer
In December of 1968, a serial killer began orchestrating a campaign of terror in the San Francisco Bay Area. Not satisfied with the simple act of murder, he taunted law enforcement and the public by writing letters to local newspapers. Through often cryptic and bizarre content including four ciphers, three (now two) of which have never been solved the psychopath played a twisted game. Reporters dubbed the man the "Cipher Killer," but the murderer chose a different name for himself: the Zodiac. Eventually, he would claim to have murdered thirty-seven. Law enforcement, however, could only account for five.
In 1971, authenticated communications with the Zodiac ceased. The elusive fugitive resurfaced briefly three years later, sending a small number of communiques, before disappearing for good. What started out with shocking abruptness slowly dissolved into mysterious uncertainty. To this day, the Zodiac's true identity remains one of the twentieth century's greatest mysteries...
In Volume 1 of The Zodiac Revisited, Michael reviews the facts of the case, building a foundation for the analysis that follows in Volumes 2 and 3.
Christian nonfiction exploring the biblical details of God's prophetic calendar, Passover, Easter, the Mosaic Law vs. the Covenant of Grace, events surrounding the Crucifixion Week, and the Resurrection of Jesus. As Jesus exhaled His last breath, the Temple Veil was violently ripped apart by God to allow everyone access into the Holy of Holies through Christ's blood. After three days in a cold, dark grave, Jesus resurrected triumphantly over death. Most Christians are aware of the basics, but did you know all of these events were meticulously detailed in O.T. analogies, including the exact dates of Jesus' death and resurrection? Jesus Unveiled reveals * Why creation's calendar predicted Adam's fall and had to be reset before Christ's incarnation * What Noah's Ark landing on Mt. Ararat has to do with the resurrection * How Judas's betrayal was foreshadowed in the Book of Esther to the exact day * Why Pharaoh's army drowned at sunrise * How the first and last Passover breads reveal the covenants of Law and Grace, and much more... Like a beautiful Monet, appreciate the finer portrait of Jesus by drawing nearer to explore the tiny brushstrokes of our Father's love painted over centuries that finally reveal Jesus Unveiled.
Little Lance Pototschnik wanted to grow up and play pro football, but that pipe dream got smoked by his lethargic growth hormones and a terrible skin disorder. The death of his childhood aspirations did, however, plant the seeds for Lance to find comedy in rejection and suffering. In this gaspingly funny collection of stories, Lance’s battle with disease, his overbearing parents, and his maniacal bosses push him toward the startling discovery that the daily grind--which strips the gold off even the best of us--is the very thing that reveals what we are truly made of. This book is for every intellectual slacker whose very soul is straining against the chains of a dead-end job, a disease, or bad culture. Golden Monkey is a hysterical and bittersweet look at the dark moments that define us, and the triumphant aftermath when we get to say, with all our hearts, that we know exactly who the hell we are.

El Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way, is the fabled path that weaves through French and Spanish countryside for 1,000 miles to its hallowed destination at Santiago de Compostella. Thousands attempt to walk its entirety each year: some succeed, many fail. Keith Foskett thru-hiked the Camino to indulge his love for the outdoors and hiking but it also, unintentionally, filled a void in his life which took him in a completely different direction. Along the way he made friends with fellow pilgrims from all over the world, all travelling for their own different reasons. He was assailed by new experiences and unexpected discoveries - from the pain of blisters and extremes of temperature to encountering kleptomaniacs, fake faith healers and being threatened with arrest in Spain for 'not sleeping'. This is the story of one man's walk, but it speaks to all who see life itself as a journey and are alive to the revelations that an escape to nature can bring. Written with insight, observation and a healthy dose of humour. As this book shows, it is rarely the start and the finish that count, but the journey in between.

The topic of giants often comes up among thoughtful people. Some believe the subject is a bit “on the fringe.” But it’s essential for truth seekers to gain valid research information to understand this disputed but historically revealed phenomenon fully. If giants really existed throughout the world, there should be plenty of evidence to support the premise. Right? Did Giants Really Exist Worldwide? is a short script packed with facts that answer the title question. It examines what the Scriptures say and considers comments from historians, including the first-century chronicler, Josephus. Also, it ponders some ancient manuscripts discovered at Qumran, Israel, in 1947–the Dead Sea Scrolls. To find answers, we’ll also explore excerpts from Smithsonian surveys, 19th and 20th-century newspaper articles, and citations from the book of Enoch. Get Did Giants Really Exist Worldwide?

In his 1858 campaign notebook, Abraham Lincoln opens a revealing window onto his antebellum political thinking about emancipation, abolition, and black social and political equality. During the heat of his celebrated contest with Senator Stephen A. Douglas, Lincoln compiled a pocket memorandum book addressing not just slavery but "the substance of all I have ever said about 'negro equality'"—the issue of how blacks might fit into American society once freed. The resulting notebook consists of newspaper clippings that Lincoln selected from his speeches in response to the Kansas-Nebraska Act (1854) and the Dred Scott decision (1857), and from the legendary debates themselves. Lincoln on "Negro Equality" provides a paragraph-by-paragraph commentary on the clippings, considering the content of the notebook within the political climate of the times, and it contrasts Lincoln's views on racial equality as a senatorial candidate for the new Republican Party in 1858 with his actions as Civil War president (1861-1865). Appendices provide the transcribed text of the clippings and Lincoln's handwritten summary of them; a guide to the contemporary sources for Lincoln's selected extracts that are available online; and a brief history of the physical notebook, housed in The Huntington Library.

It was the biggest investment in the history of Morgan Stanley's $100 Billion real estate fund business; it was one of the largest deals in the history of Australian property. In 2007, Morgan Stanley bought Investa Property Trust for more than $6.5 billion. In less than a year, the investment was in trouble. Scott MacDonald, an American CEO with no prior experience in Australia, agreed to meet with the Company and Morgan Stanley executives in Sydney for one week in 2008. He returned home more than five years later after guiding Investa through its perilous journey to survival. The Company moved from crisis to crisis from 2008 through 2012, sometimes avoiding insolvency by hours. The drama of corporate survival is played against the backdrop of the Global Financial Crisis. The story of corporate struggle draws upon Scott MacDonald's personal experiences as chapters alternate between his life growing up and the fight to save Investa. His career includes an amazing range of experiences from fortune telling, street sweeper, and corporate CEO. Using stories and antidotes from every stage of his life, the Investa story is personalized and much more than a business memoir.

"The thing that sets it apart from others is that it’s written by a fellow sufferer who can also give valuable insight as a psychologist.

Saying that, the author has taken care to balance positivity with reality and points out that although it’s not always possible to look on the bright side, there are still things we can do to ensure that we don’t spiral into depression." —Elsa Bridger>

You'll see his ups and downs - including an escape - as he navigates life in prison. Once he gets out, life outside the prison fences is bitter-sweet.

Book description: In recent years, there has been a whole new understanding of what stress is. This book is a summary of this knowledge that outlines the medical, psychological and workplace aspects of stress. It deals with many myths and presents the latest research in an easily understandable way. The book describes when and how stress can be harmful – so-called toxic stress – and summarizes new and old methods of prevention and treatment. Toxic stress may be triggered by both physical and psychosocial trauma. It also describes positive stress, which can be beneficial in both the short and long term. New research has revealed what happens to our brain when we are being subjected to harmful stress. This knowledge presents new ways of treating and preventing stress for the individual, for stress therapists and for society. The book also describes how stress – for good and bad – is an example of the close biological relationship between our minds and our physical bodies. This relationship is not only governed by hormones and inherited animal patterns but is also highly related to social learning, thought and our individual reality.

Flight of the Forgotten is the true story of one of the most closely-guarded American military secrets of all time. It is intriguing, controversial and thought-provoking. The story traverses 50 years, two generations and the realities of our physical world. The triggering event is the tragic loss of an American Eighth Air Force bomber crew in 1945 under mysterious circumstances while en-route home after the end of World War II. The loss represents a 50-year-old aviation mystery, officially "forgotten" by the United States Government. Details described and amplified within the story remain permanently "buried" inside a top-secret O.S.S. file to this day. This book is a public counter to official efforts by the United States Government to have the events permanently erased from the public record. The author's extensive research indicates that those events involve murder, conspiracy and sabotage by the O.S.S., the forerunner to the modern CIA.

As a young man I traveled to West Africa in search of my identity. I am a man of color, who was born in England. I visited West Africa in the mid-seventies before that area exploded into violence, and witnessed the displacement of its people. My adventure lasted 18 months, and covered the countries of Algeria, Mali, Burkina Faso (formerly Upper Volta), Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia and Sierra Leone. An adventure like this probably couldn’t happen today. The desert has encroached on the south, and poverty has forced the increased migration of peoples from the savannah areas to the coastal countries... The journey I went through represented a coming of age that tested my young manhood. The stories in this book are intended to open people’s eyes to the real Africa. It is my intention to present a story to you, my readers, that will offer you a visceral experience of being with me on the mammy wagons charging through the forests. To have you sitting by my side as we hurtle across the Savannah landscape. To have you feel the suffocating heat in the swamplands of Sierra Leone. To take you to the humanity of the people I encountered on this journey. In so doing, I hope you will connect to and strengthen your own humanity. And perhaps in a small way this story will make all who read it a little more open and human. Such is the first step for all of us in finding ourselves, and some peace in this world today.
This new book is about teensy-weensy firecracker love... love that, when ignited, produces a burst of fireworks and lights up someone’s dark night. It’s about feet-on-the-ground, sky’s-the-limit, life-changing, world-engaging, mustard-seed love that grows from a hunch, an idea, a nudging from above—and then blossoms in the willingness of a heart to act on its sometimes-wobbly faith. Such audacious, underestimated love—like the little engine that could from childhood—just keeps chugging along over “impossible” hills, shrugging off the naysayers, imagining the view from the top. The difference is: this tenacity in the human heart is what turns seeming underdogs and ragamuffins like ourselves into influencers and game-changers, right in our own communities, workplaces, homes . . . or wherever we go in the world. May Pamela Capone’s often-hilarious observations and always-engaging experiences put a little fuel in your tank to help you get up and over, so you can see that all things are indeed possible . . . if you believe that Love can. By day, a self-professed professional unpaid people watcher and evidence gatherer, and by night, an insomniac dot connector, Pamela Capone lives in Southern California with her husband, John. They have two fabulous adult children together, Joey and Cassie, and one phenomenal grandson, Brooks.

Every year several thousand people attempt to hike all 2180 miles of the Appalachian Trail in the eastern United States. Being the first of the big three hikes in America, it is where long-distance hikers go to cut their teeth. Keith Foskett has another reason.

I contacted Pierre, and he told me he read the story in the book, Return From Tomorrow, by Ritchie/Sherrill. I got both books to start my research on this magnificent man because his story was very intriguing to me.
First, some background information: While in the Navy, before I turned 21, I went through a Simulated POW Camp for Navy men who had a chance of being captured in Vietnam. After going through the Simulated Camp, I became one of the Instructors. I became an expert at performing Interrogations, Indoctrinations, and giving Impassioned Hate Speeches reminiscent of those given by Hitler that Brainwashed millions of Germans. I was amazed at how easy it was to brainwash people, even in a simulated situation.
Years later I was introduced to the story of Viktor Frankl, the renowned Holocaust Survivor and author of Man’s Search for Meaning. I am now helping to see his dream of a Statue of Responsibility as a companion to the Statue of Liberty come true. I was also guided to another fascinating De ...
Enter the world of psychology and mental illness as well as that of famous writers you've loved and read stories that will tug at your heart. It's all here. Among the interviews that I have included in this book are several which I believe will be quite interesting to you. For example, the private interview that I had with John Lennon and Yoko Ono in Toronto, another private interview with Isaac Asimov and one with Alison Steele, the very famous “girl” radio DJ in New York City known simply as “The Nightbird” and an embarrassing moment with Jacqueline Susann, the writer of "Valley of the Dolls." The world of TV shrinks is also revealed as only someone who has been there can do it.
When it comes to college football, there are fans and there are fanatics. Destined by geography and family tradition to latch onto the Arkansas Razorbacks, Blant Hurt is of the second type. Like most devotees, he was captivated by his love of his team at an early age. But unlike more casual fans, Hurt found himself attaching what some might call “outsize life importance” to the fortunes of the Razorbacks —a team which, like his own life, had a habit of going in directions that he did not foresee. In this remarkably candid, funny, and introspective memoir, Blant Hurt recounts his half-century as the most zealous of college football fans. Beginning with the so-called Game of the Century when he was nine-years old, he tells how this enduring passion has colored his relationships with his family and friends, shaped his romances, and, for better or worse, marked every era of his life—indeed, marked his sense of life itself. A self-described “literary man,” Hurt draws on his love of narrative and storytelling to drill down deep inside himself and examine the soul of a college football fanatic. Not the Seasons I Expected is that rare “sports” book that focuses on the hopes and dreams of the people in the bleachers, rather than the ones on the playing field. As such, it’s sure to speak to delirious/heartbroken fans everywhere.
Throughout recorded history, and before - women have been there. Many have been leaders, innovators, and the foundation for the evolution of modern society as we know it now. Often their stories have been overlooked, diminished, or hijacked to someone else's resume.
This book is a celebration of a few of the female geniuses, artists, innovators, goddesses, and not to be overlooked, villains. If men were there, women were too in the revolutions, discoveries, and progress. Every story deserves recognition in history classes, more than a book and a movie.
This has been an eye-opening adventure, looking forward to sharing it with you.

In my life I have been fortunate enough to experience many unusual and varied things. I have always liked poetry and have tried to capture the range of emotions that everyone lives through. I hope people like my clumsy attempts, but as long as they generate some response in the reader, I feel that my job has been done. "“WHERE LEADS THE ROAD is a collection filled with one man’s thoughts about the world and his experience. While the topics are varied and wide-ranging in WHERE LEADS THE ROAD, what is clear is that William Gordon Mallett has poured his entire life into this collection. It is made up of memories both big and small, snippets of everyday scenes such as the pad of a cats paw are written alongside poetic political commentaries and reflections on global society. For the most part, the poems in the collection ring of nostalgia. IR Verdict: WHERE LEADS THE ROAD, a highly personal and intentionally soothing collection of poems by William Gordon Mallett, is both at its worst and best when rooted in pure nostalgia.” - IndieReader Review

On a September morning in 1948 - while a member of the U.S. Olympic team, a Howard University student, and a veteran of World War 2 - Norvel Lee was arrested for taking a seat in the white section of a segregated train in rural Virginia. Thorough research of the facts about Jim Crow laws shows that Norvel Lee's appeal of the case resulted in a landmark civil rights decision. Norvel Lee spent his childhood in a rustic, segregated Black community nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. His father was a day laborer for the railroad while his mother expected her children to get an education and become involved in community affairs. In spite of obstacles such as Virginia's Jim Crow laws, limited schooling opportunities, and a speech impediment, Norvel's life journey led to exceptional accomplishments in the larger world. Among those accomplishments were becoming a member of the 1948 and 1952 U.S. Olympic teams, making history at the 1952 Helsinki Games. Afterward he received several post-graduate degrees. While raising and empowering their family Norvel and his wife then dedicated their lives to educating and mentoring young people and contributing tirelessly to community outreach organizations in the Washington D.C. area. He also served as a senior officer with the U.S. Air Force Reserve. Norvel Lee was truly an unsung hero who deserves recognition as a civil rights leader who made a profound difference in people's lives. Based on true events, NORVEL is a meticulously re ...
The Pacific Crest Trail stretches some 2,650 miles from the Mexican border to Canada. It meanders through the scorching deserts of California, the dramatic Sierra Nevada, the volcanic landscape of Oregon and the vast forests of Washington. Every year scores of hikers attempt to walk its entirety. Four in ten give up in the first month alone and only two in ten will reach Canada. Extremes of heat and cold, the toughness and roughness of the trail and encounters with an assortment of potentially deadly creatures stretch walkers to their absolute limits. It’s a lesson Keith Foskett soon learns the hard way, having to deal with blisters and other physical ailments, as well as his inherent phobia of snakes, spiders, bears, getting dirty and camping in the woods after dark. With the harsh winter looming, he enters into a desperate race against time, facing a dangerous, physical and very real threat to become the last Englishman to complete the greatest long distance hiking trail on Earth.

In 2007, a twelve-day trip to Irelandmy ancestors homelandturned out to be the most significant turning point in my life. I never dreamed when I embarked on my adventure it would lead to me becoming a genealogist, meeting dozens of Irish rellies, writing two fiction book series set in Ireland, and buying a renovated 1887 schoolhouse in my Coffey ancestors townland.
Since that trip, Ive researched more than twenty-five of my maternal and paternal Irish lines as well as numerous Scottish ones. Ive also done extensive research in Canada, England, and the United States, and I've assisted friends and family members with tracing ancestry lines in Austria, Germany, and Hungary. Besides conducting online research, I have visited many historical archives, traipsed through hundreds of cemeteries (many now situated in sheep-filled fields), and located several family homesteads.
In 2018, I began writing a genealogy column for my monthly author newsletter about my personal research experiences. Because I was writing articles faster than I was publishing newsletters, I decided to compile them into a book. Genealogy Tips and Quips includes:
•twenty-five newsletter articles
•twenty-five brand-new articles
•a case study about how a paternal DNA test revealed my family's royal lineage and my quest to uncover family secrets
•an extensive case study on tracing my most difficult family line back t ...

Westerners today grow up with abundant opportunities to determine their own values, identities, and roles in society. But for generations, millions who lived under Soviet rule in the USSR had these essential freedoms withheld, determined instead by a central authority that claimed the right to choose for them and enforce compliance. Thirty years after the Soviet Union’s decisive collapse, the old communist paradigm continues to limit those who come of age in a post-Soviet world. Everyone Is an Entrepreneur showcases the experience of an American author acclimating to life in the developing post-Soviet economy of Armenia. Along the way, he examines how the intelligent and hardworking people he lives among are stuck in a state of transition away from all-encompassing, bureaucratic control. They struggle to adjust to the responsibilities of economic self-determination because they have never learned how to see the world through entrepreneurial eyes. Entrepreneurship is a principled way of seeing the world, a paradigm that applies to people in all cultural and economic circumstances: Artists, office workers, doctors, teachers, farmers, and laborers alike. By adopting this universal outlook, anyone can produce more wealth, accomplish bigger goals, and take control of their life like never before.

The 2008 recession hits. The US economy goes belly-up and sentences a young generation to wayward lives. With nothing to lose, Lance Pototschnik and his best friend, Jackson Greenly, decide to go for their artist dreams. Lance begins a grassroots initiative to sell an original screenplay to Hollywood. He lives out of a rental car and travels the country filming strangers' street auditions, hoping to generate enough interest on social media to dragoon a production deal. Jackson goes to art school, where he is inspired to make the perfect painting: one with the power to shoot a person dead. Hollywood Ending is a shotgun-seat view of the awkward, hilarious places dreams can lead us. But this book is so much more than a laugh-out-loud ride beside the author. Pototschnik is a self-aware witness to his own crazy journey, and to the possessory effects dissipated art and media saturation have had on him, and on his dreams. Here, he turns his keen powers of observation on a couple of life’s deepest questions: Why do we think what we think? Why do we want what we want? This is required reading for those who get the ineffable sense that the world is going to hell in a hilarious handbasket.
