From the Queen of Suspense and #1 New York Times bestselling author comes a thrilling mystery aboard a luxurious but deadly cruise. Fleeing the disastrous and humiliating last-minute arrest of her fiancé on the eve of their wedding, Celia, an expert on gems and jewelry, is hoping to escape from reality on a glamorous cruise ship. But it is not to be. On board in the most luxurious suite is the elderly and world-famous Lady Emily Harworth. Immensely wealthy, Lady Em is the owner of a priceless emerald necklace that she intends to leave to the Smithsonian on her death. Three days later Lady Em is found dead—and the necklace is missing. Is it the work of her apparently devoted secretary, or her lawyer-executor, both of whom she had invited on board for the cruise? Celia, with the help of her new friends Willy and Alvirah Meehan—who are splurging on their wedding anniversary—sets out to find who the killer is, not realizing that she may have put a target on her back.

This book consists mostly of poems God has given me since I started my journey with Him. I call it a journey, because when a person repents of his/her sin and ask Jesus to live in their hearts, they are no longer looking to this world as home. We have a city on high, built without hands that will be our homes; we are pilgrims here in this world. Even though God has given me many dreams and I’ve watched them come to pass, I make no claims to being a Joseph. I am in awe every time God shows me something in a dream and I see it unfold, some not so pleasant, and others it would be hard to describe. God put into my heart to share these poems with believers and non believers alike, that some may come to know what God can do for them. What He has done for me He will do for others, seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be opened to you. I’ll share a bit of my life before knowing my loving Savior, so you might see what He brought me from and where I’m headed. I threw away many years when I could have had this wonderful life I live now. Believe me when I say, when people get born again, they regret those wasted years. I let the enemy take everything from me. God in His goodness has restored all things back to me, the family I lost and the love that should have been there all along. Sin hardens the heart, the more you sin the harder it becomes; in the end you can hardly feel love at all. I know these poems will bless you as they have blessed me and others. To God be all the glory, it is Him that gave me the poems and the testimony. I hope you enjoy reading these poems as much as I enjoyed putting down on paper what the Holy Spirit put into my heart

This is a work of unprecedented scope, tracing the origins of Jewish autobiographical writing from the early modern period to the early twentieth century. Drawing on a multitude of Hebrew and Yiddish texts, very few of which have been translated into English, and on contemporary autobiographical theory, this book provides a literary/historical explanatory paradigm for the emergence of the Jewish autobiographical voice. The book also provides the English reader with an introduction to the works of central figures in the history of Hebrew and Yiddish literature, and it includes discussion of material that has never been submitted to literary critical analysis in English.
A “superbly plotted” (Los Angeles Times) page-turning classic from the undisputed Queen of Suspense and #1 New York Times bestselling author Mary Higgins Clark. A minor road accident landed county prosecutor Katie DeMaio in Westlake Hospital. That night, from her window, she thought she saw a man load a woman’s body into the trunk of a car...or was it just a sleeping pill induced nightmare? At work the next day, Katie began investigating a suicide that looked more like murder. Initial evidence pointed elsewhere, but medical examiner Richard Carroll saw a trail leading to Dr. Edgar Highley. He suspected that the famous doctor’s work “curing” infertile women was more than controversial—that it was deceitful, depraved, and often deadly. But before Richard could tell Katie his fears, she left the office for the weekend and an appointment for routine surgery...in Dr. Highley’s operating room. “A harrowing tale” (The New York Times Book Review) that’s “indescribably suspenseful” (San Francisco Chronicle), The Cradle Will Fall is a page-turning thriller of the highest order.

Destined to Make It is the story about how this writer fought and overcame tremendous odds that would have sidelined many before the fight began. This book was birth through me because of my many life experiences that crippled me and had me bound for years. My drive and desire not to be held by my past propelled me forward. My desire is to reach women that are held by their past, and are afraid to let go of what has held them bound for years.

Take control, and Remember, the battle is not yours but it’s the Lord’s.
The Concubine's Daughter is a snapshot of a bygone era, depicting life in the British colony of Hong Kong in the fifties and sixties. It is the story Elizabeth Lee, beautiful, intelligent, and liberated, from the time she is a wide-eyed eighteen year-old studying English Literature at the University of Hong Kong, sharing girlish secrets with her two best friends, to her becoming an academic at the University, to just after her thirtieth birthday, when she leaves Hong Kong with her husband and young son for the US, frightened in part by the riots inspired by the Cultural Revolution taking place across the border in mainland China. After twenty years in the US she returns to Hong Kong in 1986, just ten years before China is to regain sovereignty over the colony. Educated in English Elizabeth is keenly aware of the conflict within herself between her love of certain aspects of Western culture and her Chinese heritage. Living in that period of the colony's history, and largely divorced from the cultural life of the Chinese mainland, she is conscious of a sense of isolation. Discriminatory attitudes and actions, whether based on gender, race, or language, are very much a fact of life in Hong Kong during this period. The subject matter is original. The narrative style is witty, mildly sarcastic, and humorous in places. The vivid depiction of social customs and manners and memorable characters from different strata of society contribute to make The Concubine's Daughter a book well worth reading.
