Author Barbra Minar writes about excelling in life in spite of disease and disabilities. Since 1960 she has battled systemic lupus erythematosus. In l985 with new medical complications Minar wrestled with a deep depression. She decided to tackle her denial, accept her situation, and find health. Using her journal entries and letters, she shares experiences and practical tips, combining support and understanding. When illness limits us, Minar shows how to discover rich new emotional, physical, and spiritual paths. WALKING INTO THE WIND is her fourth book. Praise for WALKING INTO THE WIND: Being Healthy With A Chronic Disease An open and compassionate description of how systemic lupus erythematosus struck body and soul. Minar describes with great honesty the challenge the disease has posed on her own emotions, her spirituality, her relationships. . . . . However, her book is more about life than about a chronic disease. The stormy winds of her chronic disease have finally become a lifting force to higher values of truth and life. H. RICHARD BARTHEL, MD, RHEUMOTOLOGIST An extraordinary story. Minar has turned the malevolence of lupus back on itself and recorded the process. You discover you can become a wiser and more powerful person than a normally healthy woman ever dreamed of becoming." DIANE DE AVALLE-ARCE Editor, Reviewer, Literary Critic I felt as though I was eavesdropping on your life. But thats exactly what I needed. Ive kept so much inside me for the past 3 1/2 years that Ive been sick. Thank you, Barbra, for being so human. The way you have allowed God to work in you is an inspiration to me." VICKI EWY Barbra Minar offers a gracious gift to the world. JOSEPH F. COHEN, MD.

'Marvellous.' Susan Hill, The Times Elizabeth Reegan, after years of freedom - and loneliness - marries into the enclosed Irish village of her upbringing. The children are not her own; her husband is straining to break free from the servile security of the police force; and her own life, threatened by illness, seems to be losing the last vestiges of its purpose. Moving between tragedy and savage comedy, desperation and joy, John McGahern's first novel is one of haunting power. 'The details are evoked with a scrupulous yet enhancing accuracy that reminds one of the young Joyce. He is astonishingly successful in penetrating the mind of a mature woman confronted with pain and death. Mr McGahern is the real thing' Spectator

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Never before published in a single volume, Tolkien’s four novellas (Farmer Giles of Ham, Leaf by Niggle, Smith of Wootton Major, and Roverandom) and one book of poems (The Adventures of Tom Bombadil) are gathered together for the first time. This new, definitive collection of works — which had appeared separately, in various formats, between 1949 and 1998 — comes with an illuminating introduction from esteemed author and Tolkien expert Tom Shippey as well as Tolkein’s most celebrated essay, “On Fairy-stories,” which astutely addresses the relationship between fairy tales and fantasy. The book is the perfect opportunity for fans of Middle-earth to enjoy some of Tolkien’s often overlooked yet most creative storytelling. With dragons and sand sorcerers, sea monsters and hobbits, knights and dwarves, this collection contains all the classic elements for Tolkien buffs of all ages.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

When Debbie Calitz and her partner Bruno Pelizzari set sail from Dar es Salaam in October 2010, they could never have guessed that they would be making a voyage into the depths of hell. Three days into their journey as crew on board the yacht Choizel, it was captured by Somali pirates who held Debbie and Bruno for ransom. For twenty months the pair was made to live in dark rooms while they were moved countless times between different locations and captors who subjected them - but especially Debbie - to untold horrors. Yet Debbie's spiritual awareness, her sense of humanity and, ironically, her past history of being the victim of abouse, helped her to stay alive as she remained positive in the belief that she and Bruno would be rescued. In this compelling book right from the depths of depravity Debbie Calitz reveals the details of their ordeal and their eventual rescue. It is a story of overwhelming courage from a woman who overcame all odds when freedom and dignity were a distant memory.
