The words 'Listen daughter' (Audi filia, from Psalm 44 in the Latin Vulgate) were frequently used in exhortations to religious women in the twelfth century. This was a period of dramatic growth in the involvement of women in various forms of religious life. While Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) has become widely known in recent years as one of the most eloquent and original voices of the period, she is often seen as a figure in isolation from her context. She lived at a time of much questioning of traditional models of religious life, by women as well as by men. This volume introduces readers to a range of strategies provoked by the growth in women's participation in religious life in one form or another, as well as to male responses to this development. In particular, it looks at the 'Mirror for Virgins' (Speculum Virginum), an illustrated dialogue between a nun and her spiritual mentor written by a monk not long before Hildegard started to record her visions. While this treatise engages in dialogue with a fictional virgin, other writings present women (not just Hildegard) as teaching both women and men. An appendix will provide the first English translation of significant excerpts from the Speculum, as well as from other little known texts about religious women from the age of Hildegard. The underlying concern of this volume is to examine new ways in which religious life for women was conceived by men as well as interpreted in practice by women within a society firmly patriarchal in character.

Daniel Corbett is playing piano in a Toronto restaurant during Sunday brunch and dreaming of his daughter, who just turned fourteen but whom he hasn’t seen for a decade. That’s because Corbett isn’t just a piano player. He’s also a parolee, a former heart surgeon who, ten years before, was convicted of slitting his wife’s throat. As Corbett works the keyboard, an attractive woman, Nora, strikes up a conversation and then requests “Happy Birthday” for her daughter, Ellie. He looks over at Nora’s table. Ellie is the picture of the daughter in his head. Same birthdate, same age, going by her middle name. Could she be his Becky? Nonsense. And yet . . . Nora is a single mom. After years of urging from her mom to find and marry a decent man, a benchmark for Ellie when she starts dating boys, who does Nora unwittingly pick? A man who murdered his wife! Nora will never date again! So much for Ellie’s benchmark—unless Corbett is innocent. Nora’s mom decides she’ll be the judge of that. No point sending away the last good man—unless she knows he isn’t. Thus starts the dance. Lies, half-truths, betrayal. Loneliness, bitterness, anger. But also, warmth, love, humour, guts, and goodwill. Is Corbett innocent? Is Ellie his daughter? Will Nora finally find the love and fulfillment she seeks? As Corbett struggles to prevail, he comes to suspect that family may not be so much about how you’re related as how you relate.

Fall deep into the Underworld with this Amazon Best Selling YA Fantasy Series! Contains the entire Daughter of Hades Series: Book 1: Endangered Book 2: Engaged Book 3: Entangled Book 4: Enchanted Be swept off your feet by this fresh take of Greek gods, goddesses, and demigods as they travel through the Underworld and into the streets of London! Hidden in the Underworld for thousands of years by her father Hades, Chrys wishes she could leave and see the human world. However, she knows that if any of the gods find her, and discover her dichotomous power over life and death, they will destroy her. So she has remained in the Underworld Palace for her entire life, making very few friends, and always bored as hell, no pun intended. Huntley never imagined that after he died, he would wake up with a magnificent girl standing over him, especially one claiming to be the daughter of Hades. The Greek gods are real, and the god of the Underworld apparently has a daughter. Instead of sending him to the afterlife, she keeps him around to be her "tutor", even though he obviously doesn't have any expertise in anything other than being a punk. It is clear she wants him around to be her friend, and it is a task Huntley has no problem taking. But after a big fight with her mother Persephone, Chrys can't take it anymore and has to see what the human world is all about. Her and her two best friends decide to check out London, since that seems to be her mother's favorite place recently. It would just be for a couple of days, so nothing could go wrong on the streets of London, right? Fans of Lore Olympus, Percy Jackson, and The Faerie Games will enjoy!

On a winter night in Brooklyn, Aya Rivers, a vibrant nineteen-year-old black girl, is shot by a white police officer in a case of mistaken identity. Her mother, Miriam, a rigid and guarded woman, rushes to the hospital. As Miriam desperately waits at Aya’s bedside, she falls back into memories of her own youth, when her life took a series of tragic turns as she struggled for independence and dealt with the end of her relationship with Aya’s father.

On her seventeenth birthday, Skye MacNamara loses both her parents after their car plunges into a river. With unseemly haste, her parents are declared dead (despite the absence of bodies) and every trace that they existed is erased. Suspicious, Skye begins asking questions and soon the carefully constructed lies that held her life together fall apart. Nothing and no one is what it seems as Skye finds herself thrust into a mythical world where stories shape reality; where memories are so tangible she physically steps into them. At the heart of The Storyteller's Daughter lies the legend of the seannachie (pronounced "shawn-aw-key"), the traditional storyteller and myth-keeper of the Scottish clans. Combining realism and fantasy, readers are drawn into a world at once familiar and unsettling. Gods and mythical creatures walk in this world, brought here by Skye's mother, a seannachie who has become spellbound by a story that lets her forget a harsh reality. Skye and her two best friends set out on a quest to rescue her-even if she no longer wants to be saved....

A woman discovers an impossible connection that transcends time and place in this stirring, unforgettable novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Memory Thief. “A splendid mix of time travel, romantic yearning, and moving on after grief.”—Publishers Weekly Isabel Griffin has done her best to move on since her boyfriend, Max Adair, vanished without a trace eight years ago, leaving her heartbroken—and pregnant. Eerily enough, this isn’t the first time someone Isabel loves has gone missing. When she was sixteen, her mother disappeared, and her father became obsessed with finding his long-lost wife—at the expense of parenting Isabel. Determined not to repeat her father’s mistakes, Isabel works hard to become a respected archaeologist and a loving mother to her daughter, Finn, a little girl with very unusual abilities. But while Isabel is on a dig in Barbados, she receives a disturbing phone call. The hauntingly familiar voice on the other end speaks just four words—“Isabel. Keep her safe.”—before they’re disconnected. Isabel tries to convince herself that the caller can’t possibly be Max. But what if it is, and Finn is in danger? As one mysterious event after another occurs, she can’t shake the feeling that, despite what everyone else believes, Finn’s father is alive—and he’s desperately trying to reach her. Advance praise for The Dream Keeper’s Daughter “Moving effortlessly between modern-day South Carolina and nineteenth-century Barbados, Emily Colin takes her readers on a passionate and sweeping tale of a woman haunted by a loss she can’t explain, and a future she can’t yet choose. Lavishly plotted and expertly paced, with characters as richly drawn as their settings, The Dream Keeper’s Daughter explores what it means to follow our hearts—even at the risk of losing what we hold most dear. I was captured from the first page and, like Colin’s lovers who are fighting time and space to be reunited, came up for air only after the remarkable journey was complete.”—Erika Marks, author of The Last Treasure “In The Dream Keeper’s Daughter, Emily Colin thins out the line between present and past, dream and reality, and allows you to cross over into a haunting world that will make your heart race, weep, and celebrate things that are lost and found. This story immerses you in a time that should not be forgotten and explores the infinite rippling effect of decisions, guilt, accountability, and love.”—Samantha Sotto, author of Love and Gravity Praise for Emily Colin’s The Memory Thief “Mesmerizing . . . dazzlingly original and as haunting as a dream.”—Caroline Leavitt, author of Pictures of You “[A] richly emotional tale . . . a writer to watch.”—Joshilyn Jackson, author of A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty
