A Walk Through the Dark

One day Eva Piper was an elementary school teacher, the mother of three, the beloved wife of a strong, protective husband. The next day she stood at the bedside of a broken man who could do nothing but moan in agony and turn his head away from her. Later she would learn that he had died and actually experienced heaven before being prayed back to life—a true miracle. Don Piper’s testimony, told in the New York Times bestseller 90 Minutes in Heaven, would one day bring hope to thousands. But all that was in the future. Despite family and friends who kept vigil with her, Eva Piper found herself essentially alone. Walking in the dark. And she had always hated the dark. Though it parallels that of her husband, Eva Piper’s account is quite different from his. It takes readers not to heavenly places but through a very earthly maze of hospital corridors, insurance forms, tiring commutes from home to workplace and hospital, and lonely hours of waiting and worrying. This is the story of a woman learning, step by darkened step, to go places she never thought she could go and growing into a person she never thought she could be. Packed with hard-earned wisdom about what it means to be a caregiver, to open yourself to the care of others, and to rest in God’s provision, this bookprovides a dependable source of light to help you walk through the dark.

Christmas Ladies

Christmas Ladies-3 Full-Length Holiday Regencies by New York Times bestselling author Grace Burrowes Three luminous holiday tales of romance, passion, and dreams come true, from Grace Burrowes' enormously popular Windham series. LADY SOPHIE'S CHRISTMAS WISH Craving a bit of peace and anonymity, Lady Sophie Windham has maneuvered a few days to herself at the ducal mansion in London before she must join her family for Christmas in Kent. Suddenly trapped by a London snowstorm, she finds herself with an abandoned baby and only the assistance of a kind, handsome stranger standing between her and complete disaster. With his estate in ruins, Vim Charpentier sees little to feel festive about this Christmas. His growing attraction for Sophie is the only thing that warms his spirits-but when Sophie's brothers whisk her away, Vim's most painful holiday memories are reawakened. It seems Sophie's been keeping secrets, and now it will take much more than a mistletoe kiss to make her deepest wishes come true. LADY LOUISA'S CHRISTMAS KNIGHT 'Tis the Season for Scandal...Years ago Lady Louisa Windham acted rashly on a dare from her brother, and that indiscretion is about to come to light. She knows her reputation will never survive exposure. Just as she's nearly overwhelmed by her dilemma, Sir Joseph Carrington offers himself to her as a solution. But Sir Joseph has secrets as well, and as he and Louisa become entangled with each other, their deceptions begin to close in on them both. LADY JENNY'S CHRISTMAS PORTRAIT What soft-spoken Lady Jenny Windham wants for Christmas is the freedom to pursue her artistic ambitions, though it will mean scandalizing her ducal parents and abandoning all hope of a family of her own. She confides her plans to successful artist Elijah Harrison, because assisting Elijah will bring Jenny that much closer to her heart's desire-or so she thinks. Elijah finds in his unlikely assistant not only an inspiring muse and unappreciated talent, but also a lovely and passionate woman. If Elijah supports Jenny's career, his own professional interests will suffer, but more significantly, he will lose Jenny forever. Both Jenny and Elijah must choose between true love and a lifelong dream.

Masters of the Confluence

In colonial Africa, the prevalent justice systems leave much to be desired. Retribution was brutal, heavy and swift. The ruling elite used slavery and death to keep the citizenry on a pretty tight leash. Nigeria was no different. From the meanders and tributaries of the Niger delta, criminals were sent to the mythical labyrinths of Arochukwu, killed or worse, shipped abroad. Established empires flourished, enriching themselves on other people's freedom, or lack of it. No one dared deny or question their status-quo. This 19th century story takes Onitsha on the quest to re-habilitate his royal bloodline in the eyes of their children. They take us through wars, the slave trade and romance; but caught in the middle, as always, are women and children. Anashi struggles to keep her dignity by fending off the two love-struck cousins who must kill each other to possess her. From the author of "Drums That Dance In The Dark," Nduka Onwuegbute's "Masters of the Confluence" is a brutal revelation of man's quest to regain political voice.
