Book Short Summary:

Shattered by a recent bereavement, Minna and husband Tom retreat to an isolated village on the Dorset coast, hoping to find the solitude that will allow them to cope with their loss and rebuild their foundering marriage. Walking on the beach one day, they unearth a human skeleton. It is a discovery which will plunge Minna into a mystery which will consume her for months to come. The remains are soon identified as those of Private Lew Campbell, a black American GI who, it seems, drowned during a wartime exercise in the area half a century before. Growing increasingly preoccupied with the dead soldier’s fate, Minna befriends a melancholy elderly woman, Felix, who lived in the village during the war. As Minna coaxes Felix’s story from her, it becomes clear that the old woman knows more about the dead GI than she initially let on. Playing with the Moon is an unforgettable novel of memory and loss, about the legacy of war, and the need to reconcile ourselves to our past in order to live with the present. Felix’s final shocking confession allows her to come to terms with an event that has cast a shadow over her life, and helps Minna to begin to accept her own loss.

Bryce Quinlan had the perfect life-working hard all day and partying all night-until a demon murdered her closest friends, leaving her bereft, wounded, and alone. When the accused is behind bars but the crimes start up again, Bryce finds herself at the heart of the investigation. She'll do whatever it takes to avenge their deaths. Hunt Athalar is a notorious Fallen angel, now enslaved to the Archangels he once attempted to overthrow. His brutal skills and incredible strength have been set to one purpose-to assassinate his boss's enemies, no questions asked. But with a demon wreaking havoc in the city, he's offered an irresistible deal: help Bryce find the murderer, and his freedom will be within reach. As Bryce and Hunt dig deep into Crescent City's underbelly, they discover a dark power that threatens everything and everyone they hold dear, and they find, in each other, a blazing passion-one that could set them both free, if they'd only let it. With unforgettable characters, sizzling romance, and page-turning suspense, this richly inventive new fantasy series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas delves into the heartache of loss, the price of freedom-and the power of love.

Book Short Summary:

One moment in time can change the course of our whole lives. On July 31, 1999, life as she knew it stopped for Hedy Wiebe. While she and a friend were driving on a Manitoba highway, a van ran a stop sign, and they hit the passenger side of the van head-on with enough force to send them rolling. Sitting in the passenger seat, Hedy suffered extreme trauma to both her body and her mind. Her injuries included broken ribs and ankles, abdominal trauma, tendon and muscle injuries. Add a closed head injury and it would take years of rehabilitation before she could truly begin to heal. Throughout the trauma, God’s presence and the blessing of ministering angels kept Hedy’s spirit alert and vibrant. Dealing with the pain, the frustration, and the discouragement gave her a new understanding of Christ being courage deep in our hearts. There’s a Place Deep inside Called Courage will inspire readers in all seasons of life to seek God’s healing touch and to trust Him completely to meet every need. It is a testimony of faith to the glory of God.

Alone and without any skills, support or families, the teens find their way to the seedy and foreign world of Downtown Eastside Vancouver, where they cling together, striving to find a place of safety and belonging in a world that doesn’t want them. The paths of the five friends cross and crisscross over the decades as they struggle to overcome, or at least forget, the trauma they endured during their years at the Mission. Fuelled by rage and furious with God, Clara finds her way into the dangerous, highly charged world of the American Indian Movement. Maisie internalizes her pain and continually places herself in dangerous situations. Famous for his daring escapes from the school, Kenny can’t stop running and moves restlessly from job to job—through fishing grounds, orchards and logging camps—trying to outrun his memories and his addiction. Lucy finds peace in motherhood and nurtures a secret compulsive disorder as she waits for Kenny to return to the life they once hoped to share together. After almost beating one of his tormentors to death, Howie serves time in prison, then tries once again to re-enter society and begin life anew. With compassion and insight, Five Little Indians chronicles the desperate quest of these residential school survivors to come to terms with their past and, ultimately, find a way forward.

Book Short Summary:

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE • A searing, post-apocalyptic novel about a father and son's fight to survive, this "tale of survival and the miracle of goodness only adds to McCarthy's stature as a living master. It's gripping, frightening and, ultimately, beautiful" (San Francisco Chronicle). A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other. The Road is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.

Book Short Summary:

"Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past." Hidden away in the Record Department of the sprawling Ministry of Truth, Winston Smith skilfully rewrites the past to suit the needs of the Party. Yet he inwardly rebels against the totalitarian world he lives in, which demands absolute obedience and controls him through the all-seeing telescreens and the watchful eye of Big Brother, symbolic head of the Party. In his longing for truth and liberty, Smith begins a secret love affair with a fellow-worker Julia, but soon discovers the true price of freedom is betrayal. George Orwell's dystopian masterpiece, Nineteen Eighty-Four is perhaps the most pervasively influential book of the twentieth century.

Book Short Summary:

A Wrinkle in Time is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal. It was a dark and stormy night—Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger. "Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract." A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.

Book Short Summary:

In her most powerful and resonant novel to date, the acclaimed writer Tessa McWatt explores the ways in which people find love in desperately uncertain times. Against a backdrop of 21st-century east London, where cuts and job crunches and unemployment are ugly, unrelenting realities, three very different love stories bloom. Francine, a university administrator who firmly believes that she is unattractive and unloveable, is unhinged after witnessing a tragic road accident. Cracked open, she is also on the verge of realizing that she is worth something to someone. Meanwhile Robin, a young film prof who Francine has lusted after from afar, is awoken to beauty in the form of the young Polish waitress in his local café, who cannot believe that he might love her back. And then there is Olivia, Robin's charismatic student, a mixed race girl growing up in a racist household, who thought she'd been abandoned by her father, Ed. Conducting research for a law school project on what society owes the dead, she stumbles across him working in a council office, where he's in charge of burying the indigent and unclaimed. Soon she realizes that Ed is not the kind of man who would abandon anybody. Thoughtful, poignant and profound, Higher Ed is a brilliantly observed novel that illuminates the human capacity for love, and lingers in the soul long after the last page is read.

Everything needed is already here. The place of transformation is a space with harmless economy. Here, with its close proximity, impresses the most skeptical reader. It intentionally assumes a transformation of every life and offers a story to assist the progress in awareness of each reader. A human’s recording of her suspecting transformation as the greatest conspiracy reveals a hindsight path to proof that it was always there, or rather, here. Since it follows us like the moon, we can turn from many sufferings and see beyond our own mistakes. Here is a place with protection where only unknowing can go and rebuild.

Book Short Summary:

Book to the Future is a historical and faith-based account of how what we do and allow today will affect tomorrow. It is an attempt to hold conditions of our ti mes up to the light of truth and standards for all times. Just as a seaman relies upon the North Star, and weights and measures have to be re-calibrated for correct readings, mankind has to have standards for a moral compass. We're at a time where people are being misled to do what's right in their own eyes. We have thousands of different church denominations and doctrines-one denomination claims to have the right answers over all the others, and there's no common ground. Proverbs 3:7 says, "Be not wise in your own eyes: fear [revere] the Lord; and depart from evil." Can you imagine a country where every individual is allowed to pledge to their own self-made banner? That would be chaos. The American flag signifies one nation, the United States. In God's kingdom, there is also one banner, Jesus Christ. If we denounce the American flag, we are denouncing our citizenship. Likewise, if we denounce Jesus as savior (not prophet) we are denouncing our citizenship in Heaven. It's been said, what one generation does in moderation, the next does in excess. The more we continue to lower God's standards as set forth in the Bible, the more we fall into immorality. Just look around at where we are today! If you were able to go into a future devoid of God's standards, would you know enough about His standards to help others re-calibrate? The Bible is to us what an owner's manual is to a car. If you want to know more about your life and what you can do for our posterity, read it and try to live it to the best of your ability. Make a difference in your own circle of influence.

Book Short Summary:

Meditation prompts, came about as a result of the Lord fulfilling the promise He gave to me in the book of Proverbs 24:13-14. Not long after the rededication of my commitment to serve Jesus Christ, I was gifted with His promise of wisdom with understanding. These promptings often came in the early morning hoursduring my time of communion and fellowship. I often liken these moment by moment refreshmentsas to spending time in The River of Life. His introduction of intimacy begins as a gradual stream, that journeys through chosen meadow-like valleys of insight. {I have experienced the peace of His inviting presence, as the stirrings of a brook, which flows over smooth stones that lay in its pathway}. These were quiet- captivating interludes of lively conversational thoughts, which were orchestrated by His Spirit. {It is beyond my comprehensionthat God, Who made all things, could so affectionately and purposefully lift me closer to Himself through the raising of my spiritual understanding of His ways}. As our time together progresses on, we eventually arrive at a place where the vastness of His thoughts are overwhelmingly endless. At such a view I am taken in and dispersed about by the breadth and length, depth and height of His love for me. God in all His Majesty and Splendor begins to personally instruct on what is to be unveiled of His treasury of hidden thoughts. {God releases wisdom to reproduce His thoughts in the minds and hearts that hold His affection. Meditation and prompts are fruitful twins that come from the union of God and His beloved}. God is faithfuland is without loss in His givingso when He meets with me in the early waking hours of the morning, I know that I am especially being awakened to receive what only He can giveSelah.

Book Short Summary:

Grace Brantley is a curious and imaginative six-year-old girl trying to cope with a divided and constantly changing family environment. The story follows Grace through a turbulent childhood where the only stabilizing elements to be found are her widowed grandmother and a devoted uncle. Grace finds comfort and safety in the few things she can relate to as constants in her life, such as the town where she lives, its inhabitants, and her ongoing fascination with the Ohio River and the mysteries it hides. Graces intense need to hold on to certain relationships while allowing others to become less important, provide a glimpse into the mind of a child trying to find a quality of life that will allow her to understand values and set priorities. The search takes Grace to places where no child should have to go, but it also reveals the true essence of life, which she finds, can at times be beautiful, but also cruel and demanding, even with the very young. Without even realizing it, Grace finds through her continuous struggles to cope a resolve that is both enlightening and creative in spirit. Her self-confidence is brought about through the balance that is found in the understanding of not only people, but of nature itself. Her childlike faith in God, having been instilled in her early on by her grandmother, will provide the much-needed tension to maintain that balance.

Book Short Summary:

This book details online academic collaborations between universities in Europe, the USA and Palestine. The chapters recount the challenges and successes of online collaborations which promote academic connections and conversations with the Gaza Strip, despite a continuing blockade imposed on Gaza since 2007, and forge relationships between individuals, institutions and cultures. The chapters examine, from different perspectives, what happens when languages and the internet facilitate encounters, and the fundamental importance this has as a form of defiance and of resistance to the physical confinement experienced by Palestinian academics, students and the general population of Gaza. They highlight the limitations of multilingual and intercultural encounters when they are deprived of the sensory proximity of face-to-face situations and what is lost in the translation of languages, practices and experiences from the ‘real’ to the ‘virtual’ world.

Book Short Summary:

Gulliver has never travelled outside Devon. He only knows his antique emporium, filled with dusty old grandfather clocks, brass telescopes and antique globes from the 17th century among other things. Dreaming of maps that lead to national treasures, he longs to go on an adventure. Then one day, in an attempt to save Beagle, his pet Labrador, Gulliver finds himself swept away into the sea. On waking up, he discovers he has fallen back in time, into the miniature world of one of his antique globes. Suddenly, his life is turned upside down and he is mixed up in a land where giant ships in bottles are scattered across the sea and land, nothing makes sense and time no longer exists. On a quest to find the Last Book Shop in the World, his only hope of returning home, Gulliver meets a cast of colourful and charismatic characters including Old Father Time, Hans Christian Andersen, Queen Elizabeth I and Sir Francis Drake and his Golden Hinde. But will he ever find this elusive shop, and does he in fact want to go back to his old life? The (Phantasmagorical) Astrarium Compendium is a fantastical tale set in the parallel world of Old Devon. Combining poetic prose with humour, action and a good helping of nonsense, Mark Roland Langdale’s new novel will appeal to fans of science fiction and fantasy stories like Doctor Who and Alice in Wonderland.

Book Short Summary:

Good ideas, the best intentions, and a stirring vision aren't enough to effect change in schools. Unstuck offers a road map to help schools change from the inside out instead of the top down. Inside-out approaches are designed to encourage schools to become more innovative and entrepreneurial, finding better ways to help students learn and pursue their own intellectual passions and talents—while also maintaining a healthy skepticism and reliance on data to make sure new approaches and ideas are working. This process involves seven steps: starting with moral purpose, unleashing curiosity, building on bright spots, peer coaching toward precision, leading from the inside out, and moving the goal posts. This book's tips, real-life examples, and next steps will help leaders get from where they are now to where they want to be.

Book Short Summary:

For twenty-five years readers of the Lake Country Echo in north-central Minnesota have enjoyed the biweekly column by Craig Nagel called "The Cracker Barrel." His essays have been photocopied and sent to friends, cut out and taped to the wall, read aloud at group meetings, reprinted in area newsletters and, on occasion, praised or damned in letters to the editor. Nagel's observations of the world around himsometimes witty, sometimes philosophical, always fresh and uniquehave earned him a loyal following. Now, from the hundreds of essays that have appeared through those years in the Echo, he's chosen the best and put them in book form. Join him as he contemplates the mystery of the night sky on a midnight walk at 30 below zero, stares eyeball to eyeball in the chicken coop with an intruding Great Horned Owl, paddles his way through an autumn marsh as he and his wife harvest wild rice, and reflects upon the mystical resurrection of early-spring frogs, who days before were entombed in frozen mud. His insights offer the reader a walk down a road less traveled, to moments filled with peace and quiet wonder. Enjoy the magic of A Place Called Home.
