O príncipe encantado existe? Bárbara é linda, loira e bem-sucedida. Desde que assistiu a uma cerimônia de casamento pela primeira vez, ainda criança, seu sonho é apenas um: percorrer o tapete vermelho da igreja, vestida de noiva. Porém, contrariando todas as suas expectativas, ao ser abandonada no altar, a vida de Bárbara desmorona. Ela decide voltar à cidade natal e passa a viver com os irmãos e mais dois amigos. Todos homens. Com a ajuda de Vivian, uma espécie de Barbie Malibu, Bárbara tenta superar sua decepção amorosa recente e uma da adolescência, que volta com tudo à sua memória: o garoto dos olhos azuis. Será que o cavalo branco só passa uma vez? É isso que Bárbara vai descobrir com bom humor, jogo de cintura e uma pitada de neurose, em O Garoto dos Olhos Azuis, romance de estreia de Raiza Varella.
Julie Brooks Barbour is a poet exposed, calling on the essentials: apples, air, earth, a tiny tugging mouth. She makes a home in the opposite ends of a blooming life and writes forward. Hers is the voice of the new mother calling herself back to swollen breasts and healed stitches.
Hers—the levitating voice of the quintessential poet capturing life moments that have been "left to themselves." Julie Brooks Barbour has left us humans, in need of her noticing, the greatest of portraits: the human soul seduced by what is puzzling, fleeting, always true.
Can the origins of morality be explained entirely in evolutionary terms? If so, what are the implications for Christian moral theology and ethics? Is the latter redundant, as socio-biologists often assert? Stephen Pope argues that theologians need to engage with evolutionary theory rather than ignoring it. He shows that our growing knowledge of human evolution is compatible with Christian faith and morality, provided that the former is not interpreted reductionistically and the latter is not understood in fundamentalist ways. Christian ethics ought to incorporate evolutionary approaches to human nature to the extent that they provide helpful knowledge of the conditions of human flourishing, both collective and individual. From this perspective, a strong affirmation of human dignity and appreciation for the theological virtues of faith, hope and charity is consistent with a revised account of natural law and the cardinal virtues.

A Western/Historical Interracial Short Story In 1849, in the midst of the California Gold Rush, Tilly Jackson was a barmaid at the popular Pay Trail Saloon and Hotel. Tilly was content after six months working in the saloon, but she knew her circumstances were about to change for the worse. She could feel it. Before her luck turned, why shouldn't she experience what it was like for a man to make love to her? The handsome new patron with the seductive blue eyes seemed like the perfect gentleman to ask. Leo Samuels, a half white, half Native American outlaw, arrived in the town of Bodie, California to escape from the law and win big at poker. In The Pay Trail Saloon, the stunning dark-skinned barmaid caught his eye and quickly won his affection.
When Tilly is victim to a brutal attack, Leo vows to eliminate every person that dared to lay a hand on her, despite the danger. He never guessed that once he had Tilly in his hands, he'd never want to let her go.
'It's always hot in Australia. And you can ride your horses to school and tie them up under a gumtree, ' my mother told us with a knowing smile, as we stared at her in awe. Gathered on a cold, misty morning in their Georgian mansion on the shores of Lough Derg in depressed 1950s Ireland, with debts mounting, this seemed like a dream for the prominent Esmonde family, including the teller of this captivating memoir, then seven-year-old Rosemary. Hardship awaits down under, but Rosemary and her family bravely fight back, seizing every opportunity and experience with courage and humour. Rosemary's remarkable story has many twists and turns as she moves from Tipperary to remote New South Wales, post-war Canberra, as a young bride to Papua New Guinea, apple orcharding and setting up a successful business in Tasmania and sailing the Mediterranean (where she and her husband Rob are compiling their fifth photographic coffee table book on sailing, seafood and wine). Come with her as we meet her illustrious ancestors (including two Victoria Cross recipients), encounter exotic countries and fascinating people, always living her life to the brim.
