„Ich habe alles falsch gemacht, Finn. Vom ersten Tag an. Ich dachte, es wäre der einzige Weg, mit dir zusammen zu sein und deiner noch würdig zu sein. Aber jetzt erkenne ich, dass ich das nie war.“ – Callan. Rache. Das ist alles, woran der Ex-Cop Rhys Tellar denken kann, und er hat jeden einzelnen Tag seiner zweijährigen Gefängnisstrafe damit verbracht, einen Plan auszuhecken, um seinen früheren Geliebten und Partner zur Strecke zu bringen. Der hat ihn betrogen und dabei den Tod von vier Menschen verursacht. Seine sechsmonatige Bewährungszeit auf der CB Bar Ranch im Südwesten von Montana zu verbringen hätte ganz einfach sein sollen, doch Rhys hat nicht mit den Gefühlen gerechnet, die er für den charismatischen Ranchhelfer, mit dem er sich anfreundet, und den verschlossenen Vorarbeiter, der vorgibt, etwas zu sein, das er nicht ist, entwickelt. Eine Zukunft. Das ist, was Finn Stewart will, aber dafür muss er den einen Mann verlassen, den er mehr als jeden anderen begehrt: seinen völlig heterosexuellen Boss und besten Freund, Callan Bale. Als der einzige offen schwule Mann in einer kleinen, homophoben Gemeinde, muss Finn jeden Tag kämpfen, um sein zu können, wer er ist. Einfach alles hinter sich zu lassen scheint allmählich die beste Entscheidung zu sein – jedenfalls bis Rhys Tellar auftaucht und alles verändert. Eine Lüge. Callan Bale hat sein ganzes Leben lang versteckt, wer er wirklich ist, und das wird ihn die einzige Person kosten, der es gelungen ist, sich einen Weg durch die Mauern zu bahnen, die Callan jahrelang um sein Herz herum errichtet hat. Doch sich für Finn zu entscheiden würde bedeuten, alles aufzugeben, für das er gearbeitet hat, und sein Versprechen zu brechen. Finn an Rhys zu verlieren würde aber zumindest bedeuten, dass der junge Mann das Leben führen kann, das er verdient. Drei Männer. Drei Entscheidungen. Eine Chance, ein Zuhause zu finden. Ein homoerotischer Liebesroman für Erwachsene mit explizitem Inhalt. Länge: rund 49.500 Wörter

Jim Daly, president and CEO of Focus on the Family, managed to rise above his harrowing childhood, which included living in Compton, a suburb of Los Angeles. In this deeply personal memoir, he relives horrors no child should endure. A bloodcurdling neighborhood murder merely serves as the backdrop to the abuse and alcoholism within the four walls of his own home, a cycle broken only by the cancer that left him motherless. Orphaned at an early age, Jim saw firsthand the worst this world had to offer. He somehow managed to catch enough glimpses of grace that he knew he wanted more, both from himself and from a God he had to believe existed. And from that small spark of grace, a great man emerged.

Award-winning reporter Emily Dugan’s Finding Home follows the tumultuous lives of a group of immigrants, all facing intense challenges in their quest to live in the UK. Syrian refugee Emad set up the Free Syrian League and worked illegally in the UK to pay for his mother to be smuggled across the Mediterranean on a perilous trip from Turkey. Even if she survives the journey, Emad knows it will be an uphill struggle to get her into Britain. Australian therapist Harley risks deportation despite serving the NHS for ten years and being told by the Home Office she could stay. Teaching assistant Klaudia is one of thousands of Polish people now living in Boston, Lincolnshire – a microcosm of poorly managed migration. Aderonke, a leading Manchester LGBT activist, lives in a tiny B&B room in Salford with her girlfriend, Happiness, and faces deportation and persecution. Dugan’s timely and acutely observed book reveals the intense personal dramas of ordinary men and women as they struggle to find somewhere to call home. It shows that migration is not about numbers, votes or opinions: it is about people.

“At four years of age Erik emigrated from Britain to the island State of Tasmania with his non-conforming family. After living in the woods the family continued to home educate, helping to pioneer the home education movement in Australia. What followed was a long personal journey to find a place in a society undergoing rapid change. Intense religious experiences and hard edged political activism play out against a backdrop of ongoing conflict over the preservation and destruction of wilderness in one of the world’s special places. This gives a unique insider perspective on alternative education, nature and spirituality, social activism, and national identity. Often humorous, sometimes tragic, this is a very personal story of engaging with public life, about finding the divine in odd places, about social conflict, and about finding in the end those things that hold us together. It is about the strange ways that love finds us. It is a story of finding home.”

It is the true story of Ramiro "Toti" Méndez, an All-American college baseball player who starred at Florida International University and Miami's Westminster Christian High School. Toti, whose athletic endeavors graced local headlines, died from an undetected heart condition, without knowing the most important story of his life. This honest memoir is also about untold secrets.

"Who is watching out for them?" Every year, the college scouting system monitors performance, speed, and GPAs, but it fails to do the same when it comes to their health. Meanwhile, athletes continue to drop dead in tracks and ï¬elds by the hundreds across the country. The strides Méndez has achieved in her son's name are marked by memories and tears. But they reinforce a mother's love each day and her resolve to tell his story to the world.

Franz (Frank) Oberle was nine years old when his family was relocated from Germany to Poland. Once there, he was taken from his parents to an isolated school where adolescents were being indoctrinated into the Hitler Youth. As the tide of war changed, he became a refugee fleeing the Russian advance, arriving in Dresden as the city became the target of the most horrific Allied bombing of the war. Surviving on grass and stolen eggs, Franz and a friend walked 800 kilometres to his ancestral village on the edge of the Black Forest, only to find that his parents had not returned and to face rejection from his remaining family. But the indominable Franz survived amid the disillusioned populace of Germany and, with his youthful sweetheart, dreamed of a new life in a new land. With the blessing of his beloved Hanna (Joan), he set off for Canada, promising to send for her when he was able to provide for her. Their subsequent life together in BC has encompassed tragedy and pure joy, hard work and hard times, failure and triumph, as Frank Oberle rose from self-educated immigrant to acclaimed federal politician. Set against the backdrops of the Second World War and the raw British Columbia frontier, Finding Home covers Frank's fascinating life story up until the time he visited Germany after a decade in Canada. Rich in detail, drama and humour, this is a love story, an inspirational saga and a book that sings the song of the Canadian immigrant.

She’s come back to Hope Springs, South Dakota, with only one thing in mind—selling the family’s tumbledown ranch so she can return to Sioux Falls and her very practical fiancé.

Suddenly, angry parents, hairless goats, and a former flame’s new heat aren’t Casie’s most pressing problems.

Leaving Home—Finding Home: My Journey from Shame to Sonship through Journaling is the first book of its kind, showing how God Himself brought inner healing by speaking into one woman’s life. In it, author Jessie Mejias shares how God counsels and heals her through journaling. The central theme of Leaving Home—Finding Home is healing through intimacy with God—an intimacy that develops as she writes out her conversations with Him. The author devotes several chapters to her background and childhood, but the heart of the book is Jessie’s actual journal. About her decision to share her journal verbatim, she says: "When the Lord first instructed me to write this book, my natural instinct was to transform the ramblings of my mind and heart into a nice, neat package that the reader could easily follow. However, as I prayed about His instructions, I felt very strongly that He wanted me to demonstrate how I received my healing through journaling itself." Jessie Mejias grew up in what she would have described as an “Ozzie and Harriet” kind of home—loving parents, close siblings, good schools, and a religion that dictated solid values. What she did not know was that beneath the surface lay a shaky foundation of dysfunctional family rules and generational patterns. As a young adult, Jessie watched her neat world crumble when two of her siblings succumbed to mental illness while the family stood by helplessly. Subsequently, her family scattered and she unwittingly married an abusive, alcoholic man. Her disastrous marriage precipitated her decision to give her life to Christ. But despite her newfound faith, at age 27 she found herself a single mother of two young sons. In the ensuing years, Jessie sought and found healing and growth through studying the Bible and receiving Christian counseling. Miraculously, she and her husband were remarried after seven years of separation and divorce. She became involved in teaching and leading Bible studies within her local church and was confident that she was already experiencing the abundant life that God promised to His children. However, when she decided to return to school to earn a degree in Christian counseling, God began to show her that she was still suffering from the traumas of her childhood, and that shame was an integral part of her life that He wanted to remove. This revelation launched her into an unprecedented time of accelerated healing that was to be the inspiration for this book. Leaving Home—Finding Home chronicles that journey from shame to sonship through one-on-one dialogue with God. Shame is a universal problem that is sometimes hard to pinpoint. We describe ourselves as embarrassed, shy, fearful, or hesitant, but we never actually understand that the source of these emotions is shame. Shame is a terrible feeling that we are a mistake; that somehow we were never supposed to exist. The author found that this feeling of shame was so deeply hidden in her heart that it was not until God began to unwrap her from her emotional chains that she could see that this was the true source of her poor self image. Jessie vividly describes her feelings of shame: "It was as if all my life I had been living in a slum that I would leave from time to time to go the nice clean neighborhood down the block—at first for short times, then for longer and longer periods of time—but inevitably I would end up at some point back in this dump. The sight of it would make me sick, but I did not know how to leave it completely behind." God Himself initiated this unique approach to inner healing as He took Jessie back to her childhood home and school and walked with her through each traumatic event of her young life, reaching deep into her heart to show her what was hidden there.
