In the summer of 1938, Layla Beck's father, a United States senator, cuts off her allowance and demands that she find employment on the Federal Writers' Project, a New Deal jobs program. Within days, Layla finds herself far from her accustomed social whirl, assigned to cover the history of the remote mill town of Macedonia, West Virginia, and destined, in her opinion, to go completely mad with boredom. But once she secures a room in the home of the unconventional Romeyn family, she is drawn into their complex world and soon discovers that the truth of the town is entangled in the thorny past of the Romeyn dynasty. At the Romeyn house, twelve-year-old Willa is desperate to learn everything in her quest to acquire her favorite virtues of ferocity and devotion -- a search that leads her into a thicket of mysteries, including the questionable business that occupies her charismatic father and the reason her adored aunt Jottie remains unmarried. Layla's arrival strikes a match to the family veneer, bringing to light buried secrets that will tell a new tale about the Romeyns. As Willa peels back the layers of her family's past, and Layla delves deeper into town legend, everyone involved is transformed -- and their personal histories completely rewritten.

This set of volumes on D.H. Lawrence is part of the "Critical Assessments of Writers in English" series, the aim of which is to provide complete collections of previously published, formative critical assessments covering the whole work of individual writers. They should be useful to serious readers of literature, researchers and advanced students. Many of the pieces included were originally published in journals or books which are now out of print or very difficult to obtain. Each set has an authoritative introductory survey, as well as a full bibliography and biographical details. Volume one contains the contemporary response (which includes reflections on Lawrence the man as well as on his work) and opens with pieces by established figures (James, Bennett, Galsworthy, Ford, Johnson, Chesterton and Garnett), followed by personal friends and acquaintances, and then by a series of responses from other significant writers and critics. It ends with a section on the contemporary American response, especially in relation to Lawrence's concern with the American literature and his time in New Mexico. Volumes two and three contain the range of critical responses to the major and minor novels, presented chronologically and grouped by title, from contemporary reviews to the present and include significant sections on particularly contentious novels such as "Lady Chatterley's Lover". Volume four begins with a section on his poetry and follows with sections on the novellas, stories and then the central non-fiction works. The volume concludes with a series of essays (in chronological order) on general aspects of Lawrence's work which reflect the critical perspectives on his writings since his death

Truth According to the Scriptures

Truth    According to the Scriptures

The focus of this book is to examine Bible truths as they actually are, not in a twisted or perverted way that man or religion sometimes tries to interpret them to be.

Truth . . . According to the Scriptures is an easy-to-read way to examine some basic Bible teachings while also providing study outlines for further personal study. The nine topics addressed in this book are presented in a clear and straightforward manner pointing the reader, not to the ways of man or religion, but directly to the truth of God’s Word. The book of Isaiah proclaims that God’s thoughts and ways are far above any man’s, and it is with that idea in mind that great lengths have been taken to let the author of the Bible, God, explain His truths with His own words rather than use the ideas or thoughts of man. God proclaims in 2 Peter 1:20 that His Word is not open to any “private interpretation”; it says what it means and means what it says, and it doesn’t say one thing to one person and something else to another. The focus of this book is to examine Bible truths as they actually are, not in a twisted or perverted way that man or religion sometimes tries to interpret them to be. It would do us all good to stop making the Bible say what we want it to say and just accept God’s truth . . . according to the scriptures.

This book presents the true story of Elizabeth's family and their search for justice against the man who continued to play father to the children whose mother he had killed.
