Rowan knows he is strange. But dangerous? He didn't mean to scare his sister. In his right mind, he wouldn't hurt a fly. But there's a place he can go where they say they can fix his mind. Beyond the bars on the window, England is at war. Behind them, Rowan's own battle is only just beginning.
'There were few more exotic places in Australia. Tribal Aboriginal people could still be seen around the town. Camel trains slowly made their way through the red-stone gorge that split MacDonnell Range. Rugged cattlemen and hard-bitten prospectors strode the streets.' In Outback Pionners, Evan McHugh gathers the enthralling stories of the men and women who opened up the Australian outback and in the process discovered the beauty and terror of this extraordinary country. We meet the little-known convict explorer John Wilson, the first European to cross the Blue Mountains (though history favours the proper English gentlemen Blaxland, Wentworth and Lawson); we follow Australia's greatest drover, Nat Buchanan, as he blazes stock routes from one side of the country to another; and we marvel at the genius and grit of the men who overcome political treachery to build the Coolgardie Pipeline and the Trans-Australian Railway.
There are some delightful inclusions: a gentle Pakistani cameleer who saves foolhardy expeditioners; a nerdy ham radio operator who invents the pedal radio and paves the way for John Flynn's Flying Doctor; two bush nurses who toil in the ruins of a pub while saving outback lives; and the modern-day pioneers who battle apathy to save endangered whildlife. Plus there are the intruiging stories of R.M. Williams, the Cattle King James Tyson, and the women behind the CWA and the School of the Air.
Paul Tillich (1886–1965) is widely regarded as one of the most influential theologians of the 20th century. By bringing his thought together with the theology and practices of an important contemporary Christian movement, Pentecostalism, this volume provokes active, productive, critical, and creative dialogue with a broad range of theological topics. These essays stimulate robust conversation, engage on common ground regarding the work of the Holy Spirit, and offer significant insights into the universal concerns of Christian theology and Paul Tillich and his legacy.

"Não escolhemos o amor, é ele quem nos escolhe. Mas, e se essa escolha estiver errada? A vida de Lucas já começou com problemas: foi abandonado em um orfanato quando tinha apenas dois anos. Sofreu a dor da rejeição e da solidão até que, em um magnífico natal, quando completava nove anos, Papai Noel lhe trouxe de presente pais maravilhosos: Levi e Heloísa. Ambos o adotaram, casaram-se e tiveram uma menina tão doce que fez Lucas escolher o seu nome: Mel. Uma família perfeita foi construída com bases sólidas. No entanto, depois de anos convivendo em um clima familiar acolhedor, o surgimento de um amor incomum abala o mundo de Lucas. Ele percebe que alguma coisa importante mudou a ponto de não conseguir ver sua irmã mais nova com os mesmos olhos. De menina doce, Mel se torna uma mulher interessante, fato que Lucas não consegue ignorar. Diante das variadas fases deste sentimento, entre elas a negação, a revolta e a culpa, Lucas tenta sobreviver em meio à dor do amor proibido e, o mais importante: tenta jamais prejudicar a sua família por causa dele." Polêmico, forte, sensível, surpreendente.
Palavras distintas para um único sentimento, amor. Uma história bem contada que vai te arrebatar do começo ao fim. (Paula Pilar) Um amor proibido e arrebatador, que me fez pensar em dois possíveis finais, mas claro que Mila me surpreendeu, como sempre. Um romance lindo, emocionante, que me arrancou lágrimas e massacrou meu coração de ansiedade. Sempre recomendo qualquer coisa que Wander escreva. (Josy Stoque)
After an on-air gaffe goes viral and jeopardizes her career, journalist Desiree Turner retreats home to Verbena, California for some peace and quiet. She begins working one of the quietest jobs around: presiding over funerals for her great-grandfather’s funeral parlor. But the action seems to follow her as a fistfight breaks out between neighbors Rosemarie Brewer and Lola Hansen at one of the first funerals she’s in charge of running. It exposes a nasty dispute and Rosemarie’s husband, Alan, is found murdered shortly after. Lola’s husband, Kyle, is immediately arrested. Desiree, whose own father’s death was devastating, has always viewed Kyle as a second father. Determined to clear his name, Desiree jumps head first into the investigation and quickly discovers that Alan had several unsavory habits at his job and in his personal life, including putting assets into his mistress’s account to hide them from Rosemarie. People murder for money and love all the time, and there’s no telling who he offended just enough to push them over the edge. Desiree is looking in all the right places, but she better catch the killer fast before they come for her next in A Grave Issue, the clever series debut by Lillian Bell.
