'I promised that I would one day write a book and tell the world about the home for unmarried mothers. I have at last kept my promise.' In Ireland, 1951, the young June Goulding took up a position as midwife in a home for unmarried mothers run by the Sacred Heart nuns. What she witnessed there was to haunt her for the next fifty years. It was a place of secrets, lies and cruelty. A place where women picked grass by hand and tarred roads whilst heavily pregnant. Where they were denied any contact with the outside world; denied basic medical treatment and abused for their 'sins'; where, after the birth, they were forced into hard labour in the convent for three years. But worst of all was that the young women were expected to raise their babies during these three years so that they could then be sold - given up for adoption in exchange for a donation to the nuns. Shocked by the nuns' inhumane treatment of the frightened young women, June risked her job to bring some light into their dark lives. June's memoir tells the story of twelve women's experiences in this home and of the hardships they endured, but also the kindness she offered them, and the hope she was able to bring.

His attractive neighbor is tugging at his heartstrings. A wealthy widow is pursuing him with hot casseroles. And his red-haired Cousin Meg has moved into the rectory, uninvited. As you can see, Mitford's rector and lifelong bachelor, Father Tim, is in need of divine intervention. In this beautifully crafted second novel in the Mitford series, Jan Karon delivers a love story that's both heartwarming and hilarious. Only time will tell if the village parson can practice what he preaches. Like At Home in Mitford, the first novel in the series, this book is filled with the miracles and mysteries of everyday life. And the affirmation of what some of us already know: Life in a small town is rarely quiet. And absolutely never boring.

After studying in Seattle for five years, Julie returns to the Alaska territory to begin her career as a public health nurse. She and her mother had dreamed of the day when Julie, smart Eskimo herself, would bring both health care and God's Word to the Eskimo villiages scattered around Nome. But now Julie's mother is dead, and the long treks across the Alaskan wilderness only accentuate her loneliness. Her discomfort is compounded by Sam Curtiss who persists in proposing a marriage that Julie fears would end her career. An outbreak of diptheria banishes such troubles from Julie's mind. The only cure lies hundreds of miles away, across the frozen frontier... the only beacon to pinpoint the blackness, the lights from rustic cabin windows.

"the light in the window" is 160 pages of Divine Inspiring Poetry. This offering promises to carry you away on a flow of inspiration that will sweep your Heart, Soul and Mind away. As you experience this journey with Bill, you will feel his connection to the collective Universal Energies, the Soul of the very Earth, all of Nature and all People. His voice of Love, Understanding and Deep Passion for Life and Love are, indeed, the whisperings of his soul. Bill's gift of expression sheds an extraordinary light on those moments in life we so often allow to slip through our fingers, let go unnoticed or deem ordinary every day occurrences. For Bill, there-in lie the Treasures. If you asked him about his writing, he would simply say, "It's Not Me.", then he may tell you about a walk in nature, a ride on a bus or a moment stuck in rush hour traffic. His inspiration seemingly flows from a 4th person or on-looker's standpoint. He holds on to it only long enough to grab a pen and notebook where another voice takes over, and he acts as merely the scribe. Thoughtfully and lovingly included in this work are a few selected poems and writings by his children. Their hearts are right there, on the pages, their souls speaking in the clear and concise voice of living and feeling. How fortunate we are to hear them.Juliette ProbstLiterary ConsultantArtistMidway, Utah
