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 ...

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.

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.

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 ...

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.

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.

From USA Today Bestselling Author Eliza Watson!
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 ...
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 ...
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.
What makes a couple stay together and feel they have found the One? What makes a random encounter exceptional? How can you know if you have chosen the right person? 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. According to an NLP model, these couples share the following 4 crucial foundations: Rareness - the moment of realization that this is our destined partner. Unwritten Agreement - the essence of words used instinctively and their impact on the quality of the relationship. Sacred Bond - the relationship’s sacred element and the couple’s divine connection. Future Dimension - the promise of a mutual future. Hundreds of couples who have implemented this method in their relationships, have claimed that it has restored their sense of confidence and control, created intimacy and power, and elevated their relationship to a unique level of spirituality. Thus, you can reshape your relationship and take to it the next level with joy and ease: without overbearing conversations, without trying to convince your partner, without games, and without waiting for your partner’s cooperation. This guide is for anyone who is interested in r ...

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.

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. Dromomania, or the uncontrollable urge to wander, has been part of his life since childhood. Hiking is his chosen method to placate the wanderlust. Accompanied by an array of eclectic characters including a world champion juggler, a drug dealer, an Everton fan whose visa is expiring and a sex-starved builder from Minnesota, his experience is far from normal. Battling a fear of snakes, bears, being in the woods after dark and his own demons, it's physically exhausting -- as well as a psychologically challenging. His adventure weaves a route through some of America's wildest landscapes and history, and is told with insight, humour and reflection.

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

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.
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.
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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
