The year is 1777. America is in turmoil. And Amish life is far different than today. Pennsylvania in the late 18th century, once called William Penn’s Woods, was an assortment of different faiths living together for the first time in American history. Included in this tapestry was a small and struggling population called Amish. Surrounding this peaceful people were unavoidable threats: both Patriots and the British were pillaging land and goods for the sake of the war, young Amishmen were leaving the faith to take up arms and defend freedom. A simple walk in the untamed forests could result in death, if not from bullet or arrow, then from an encounter with a wild animal. Amid this time of tumult, Adam Wyse is fighting a personal battle. To possibly join the war efforts and leave his faith, which would mean walking away from the only woman he’s ever loved: Lena Yoder. But for that love he’s made a promise that may keep them apart permanently. When Adam withdraws from Lena, she’s forced to turn to his brother, Isaac, for support. Must Lena deny her heart’s desire to save Adam’s soul? And will life in this feral and primitive New World be more than this peace-keeping people can withstand? “There is a beautiful love story that unfolds within the pages . . . I was vested in the lives of these characters from the first page.” —BETH WISEMAN, best-selling author of The Wonder of Your Love and Plain Proposal

Beautiful young Aspasia Stanton and her twin brother Jerry are horrified when they receive a letter addressed to their uncle and Guardian, the much-loved Reverend Theophilus Stanton, from Her Grace the Duchess of Grimstone. In it she coldly announces that that “having reached the age of sixty-five, you are retired from your Living and you will vacate the Vicarage within a month of this date.” Whatever are they to do? Without the Reverend’s stipend they will have nothing at all to live on and Jerry will be forced to leave Oxford University. And what of Little Medlock’s parishioners, who love their Vicar so dearly after all his years in their Parish? Although the Duchess is known by all the locals as a completely ruthless woman without a heart, Aspasia resolves to go to visit her and throw herself on her mercy, saying, ‘I will do – anything you ask of me if Uncle Theophilus may remain at Little Medlock.’ The poor innocent Aspasia has no grasp of the evil that goes on behind Grimstone House’s imposing doors or of the terrible things that the wicked Duchess will demand of her as her side of the bargain. But then Fate sends the imperious yet handsome Marquis of Thame to visit the Duchess, a gentleman unimpressed and undaunted by her disreputable and wicked ways. But will he step in to save Aspasia from utter humiliation and dishonour?

RISING MAGNIFICENTLY in the wilderness of Western Tibet, Mount Kailash is one of three sacred mountains in Tibet. Its shape is unmistakable: a symmetrical cone marked with striations and graced with perpetual snows. Four rivers emanate from it, nourishing the entire region. Mount Kailash is the center of the spiritual universe. It is sacred to four religions: Buddhism, Hinduism, Bön, and Jainism. For Hindus, it is the home of Shiva. All of these statements are true of this magnificent mountain, but the truest is what my teacher said to me before I left to do prostrations around Mt. Kailash: "The center of the spiritual universe already exists in your human heart. Meet your mirror."

This is a true story of a woman who grew up trying to buy love, and to be accepted. She ran from her troubles. She ran from men. She ran from the Lord.

She is no longer running because she ran into the right hands, the Lords. This story will touch your heart. This story will show you what God can do. He can turn a tragedy into a triumph.

Love's Strategy Valentine Westridge and Kurt Schillig are lovers, and have been since the Peninsular War when lonely young officer Valentine let himself be seduced by the equally lonely Kurt. Now they're back from the war and intent on beginning the future they dreamed of together, one that includes a quiet country estate, horses, dogs, children, and each other. Their plan, however, also requires a wife. At the suggestion of a mutual friend, Valentine and Kurt believe the financial security they can offer to impoverished widow Leah Marleston will help her accept the unusual sexual relationship they are suggesting. Leah is at her wit's end, creditors having taken everything she owns to pay off her late husband's gambling debts. She must find a way to support herself and her two children, or be forced to marry her abusive and obsessive brother-in-law. In Valentine's and Kurt's arms, Leah discovers a passion she never knew existed. Brought together by necessity, bonded by desire, these three lonely people find themselves fighting against all odds for a love that was never part of their plans. Love's Surrender Lady Vanessa Carlton-Smythe is from one of England's most well-respected families and the daughter of an earl. She has lived an exemplary life-the perfect daughter, the perfect lady. Until one Christmas Eve, when she meets two men who unleash her secret desires. She can't surrender her heart, only her body, and only for the next twelve days. After Twelfth Night, their affair must end and she will return to a life that is slowly suffocating her. Veterans Nick and Oliver have been constant companions since Waterloo. They share everything, including women and a bad reputation. When Lady Vanessa catches them in a compromising position, they are seduced by the longing in her eyes. Cool, distant, unattainable-the more she protests, the more they want her. Vanessa's desires prompt the two men to finally give in to their feelings and become lovers. When desire becomes love, can they convince Vanessa to leave her privileged life behind and surrender to them forever?

Cradled in the Arms of Love

Cradled in the Arms of Love

But what is sanctity, and how is it to be attained? In this book, the effort is made to illuminate the central reality of all holiness, its "inner core.

Holiness is often seen as a state unattainable by the ordinary person and reserved for some spiritual "elite," or at least for those who have a special vocation in the Church. However, the teaching of the Church is very clear that each one of us is called by God to sanctity. But what is sanctity, and how is it to be attained? In this book, the effort is made to illuminate the central reality of all holiness, its "inner core." And when this reality begins to shed its light, we realize that holiness is not a human "accomplishment," a state of self-attained virtue and autonomy, but simply a state of childlike receptivity to our loving Father, a state of communion with Christ...the state of loving intimacy with the Trinity who dwells within us. It is nothing but the loving and trust-filled openness of a little child who knows that he or she is infinitely loved, and so can welcome the gift poured forth unceasingly by such a loving God, and can surrender entirely into his embrace in return. This state of intimacy, lost once through sin but restored within us through God's pure gift, is a wellspring of abiding peace and joy, which nothing can take away.This attitude of childlike trust and loving confidence is manifested, in a special way, in an interior openness of heart before God and before every person. Such openness, in turn, bears a "threefold" character, which is revealed through what are traditionally called the "evangelical counsels," namely, poverty, obedience, and chastity. These are not the reserve of consecrated religious persons, but manifest true holiness in the heart of every state of life, in the existence of each individual. Healing the wound of "closedness" that came about through the sin of Adam and Eve, in their pride, possessiveness, and pleasure-seeking, they are simply the expression of loving openness, an openness that flowers in profound intimacy with God.

Madge McLellan was captivated by the sexy, muscular Patrick Musselman. He seemingly had no interest in her. A passing hello on Sundays at the church was the only acknowledgement from him that she existed at all. Patrick was completely oblivious to his effect on the female gender. He felt the one encounter he had with a woman was enough, and thereafter kept his distance from them. When his sister learned she had cancer and that her time was limited, she and Madge's father became matchmakers. The result proved to be the best thing that ever happened to Patrick and Madge.
