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 to return to the love of his life. Written to his twin sons, his story is a testament to the power of devotion and proof that the life you've always wanted is possible if you never give up.
No Second Chances is one man`s story, told from his point of view regarding his first-hand experiences in the School of Hard Knocks. If you like thrillers, you`ll probably like this book...
Although it is non-fiction, its style has none of the dry, documentary-type language. It is compelling and entertaining, all while enlightening the reader.
You`ll read about a young, 20-year-old father of an infant girl, who went to prison for robbery, doing nearly 15 years. 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. He works on building a stronger bond with his now teenaged daughter, yet life is full of unexpected obstacles and temptation lures him back to living life by the Law of the Gun.
Finally, you`ll discover how far the U.S. justice system has fallen. Dishonest cops, unscrupulous prosecutors, contemptible defense lawyers, and indifferent judges all participate in railroading the author into another prison sentence.
If you`re at all interested in how the American justice system has become more like North Korea's, read this book. You`ll laugh, you may tear up, and if you`re not shocked, it`s only because this topic no longer has anything to teach you.
"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.

I’m not the Gwyneth Paltrow kind of writer. To read this book, you will not have to eradicate all traces of intelligence from that potato of a head, just to try to digest a bunch of new age woo-woo b*llocks. Nope - the sh*t I will share in the following pages really f*cking works, and you don’t need crystals or to be in touch with the spirit of a Native American dream walker to appreciate the difference it’ll make. Maybe a few of them could cause you to briefly question my/your sanity, but don’t all the best experiences in life make you do that? Ok, not all of them. But a few of the REALLY cool ones that also might involve sh*t like ancient ninja swords, velociraptors, V8 engines, copious amounts of alcohol and waking up in a foreign country wearing a clown outfit? Well, THAT kind do, don’t they? We don’t normally think of our brains as a part of the anatomy that needs exercising, as it’s processing sh*t all the time, isn’t it? Discover why that lump of grey goo between your ears needs as much attention as the rest of your anatomy, and how to do it - the easy (and sometimes surreal) way.

This topic could easily be heavy-going, but it is mainly an upbeat, positive read.

Catherine is a dream come true for her parents. Their first born child is their most precious gift. The love and joy they feel for her is obvious to everyone who knows them. When tragedy unexpectedly hits, Catherine's world is turned upside down and the course of her life is forever changed. In this heartbreakingly powerful memoir, Catherine goes back to where it all began. Following the tragic death of one of her parents at the age of three, she is sent to live with an Aunt and Uncle. This is where the cycle of her abuse begins. As she makes her way in the world, the sexual violation she endured at the hands of her uncle shapes her and how she sees herself. This is her journey of self-discovery - a reframing of the negative perceptions of who she is and an education in loving and accepting herself, regardless of the scars from her past. When devastating news about the beloved cousin she loves as a brother comes to the surface, the scars of her past are reopened. The memories of the abuse her uncle put her through come rushing back so powerfully that she is not sure she can survive this time. To save herself Catherine must face once and for all the demons of her past.

Victoria Dougherty comes from the ultimate Cold War family – daring escapes, backyard firing squads, communist snitches, bowlfuls of goulash, gargoyles, gray skies and bone-chilling winters. In Cold, Dougherty writes essays with humor and raw soul. About the heart-rending stories she grew up hearing at her dinner table and the two-hanky drama that played on in her home. She ponders how her family’s bad luck - so bad her parents dubbed it a curse - against all reason became a force for good in her life.
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.

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.

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 ...

Happy childhood, horrors of war and the miraculous rescue of the only child survivor from Obertyn Krystyna Carmi's childhood in Obertyn was full of happy moments. Her childhood was filled with friends, both Polish and Ukrainian, and she attended a Ukrainian school. Krystyna Carmi was gifted with an extraordinary memory, and in this memoir, she vividly recounts the history of her family and her life before, during and after World War II. But her happy childhood did not last long; World War II changed it forever. A girl’s survival in the face of pure evil: loss and persistence against all odds. However, the worst was still ahead for the Jewish community in Obertyn and for Krystyna’s family. After the Germans ordered the Jews to move into the Kołomyja ghetto, Krystyna’s family went to live in the ghetto. People died in the ghetto because of hunger and physical exhaustion; their bodies were collected on a platform placed in the street. These deaths did not escape the attention of the sensitive girl, and she’ll be forever haunted by the faces of those who died. Her parents and her sister did not survive the family’s attempt to escape the ghetto, but despite her loss, Krystyna struggled to stay alive; she was hiding in order to save her life, she faced hunger, thirst, fear for her life. Nevertheless, Providence has chosen for her to live, to be. More than a memoir, The Strange Ways of Providence in my Life, gives the reader a piece of history.

Can physics explain the economy? Many people believe that there is a lot of money in the world and that its distribution among people is unjust. Most people also believe that the reason for economic crises is an inherent illness of the system or the result of misguided or even tricky actions that can be avoided. In this book, it is argued that the amount of money in developed countries is zero, the income distribution among people is purely statistical, and that volatility in the economy is inevitable, just like the fluctuation in our mood. Why are very few people so rich and many so poor, and why do CEO’s make so much money? We show that income distribution is the universal distribution that also exists in many other phenomena, e.g., the distribution of voters among parties, the distribution of buyers of books, and the distribution of the number of residents in cities. It also exists in the frequency of digits in data files, the frequency of earthquakes according to their intensity, and many other random phenomena. This easy-to-calculate universal distribution well predicts the economic inequality as reflected in the Gini Index, the relative percentage of the poor, the salaries of CEOs, and the fraction of wealth held by the richest. This book can be understood by everybody! The book is of interest to a wide audience of economists, sociologists, politicians, and the general public alike. It relies on theories from physics and economics, and its contents are based on scientif ...

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.

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

Not in a few months. Certainly never before me, not if I could help it! So I told him softly, "We don't always get what we want in life. So you might have to stay with Mom for a while." I knew not what to say next so we prayed together. I kept praying as Eli was given light sedation before surgery and they finally wheeled him away to the operating room at around 2 PM. I lost my chance to ask Eli what he knew of Heaven. Why didn't I ask Eli? Why didn't I ask Eli what he knew of Jesus? My heart broke as I cried. Eli wanted to go to Heaven! How did my five year old little boy know of Heaven when I refused to tell him much of Heaven for had I done so, just talking about it, would make Eli dying to ...
What on earth do a dead tomato plant and a paycheck have in common? Maryann Miller explores the fun and foibles of how to survive parenting a large family, while vainly keeping body and mind intact. From School Daze to Summertime Blues, and everything in between, the book airs the Miller laundry with all the holes and missing buttons. She answers important family questions such as: What's for dinner? Who wrote the dirty words on the wall? Can we really pee in the woods? Do the kids really like the dog better than Mom? Readers of the humor column, from which this books comes, delighted in The Great Lasagna Caper, the fits of tantrum that demolished a telephone, The Lawn Wars, who is and who isn't Socially Acceptable, and the crazy dinnertime conversations. Those readers could relate, as will mothers and father and kids today. Nothing really changes all that much in family dynamics. Just the names are changed to protect the innocent.
Everyones mother is dead or dying. It is nothing new, nothing ceasing, nothing fresh or interesting. But when your mother is dying and when this dying insists at once that you take notice of it, you feel her bones in your own and that insistence stretches into the vision you have of your own life.
This short collection of essays explores life and deathwhat they take, what they give, and what they leave behind.
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.

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.

Church seems to be all about obeying a set of rules—rules you can’t necessarily find in the Bible but rules the church folks expect you to obey. God, on the other hand, often has a different set of rules—ones sprinkled with grace and mercy.

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.

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.
