Kirk Langner, better known as Piece Maker on the Appalachian Trail, planned a nine-day hike on some of the most rugged parts of the trail in North Carolina and Tennessee, but he had not planned for what would eventually change his life forever. Kirk spends a lot of time walking the woods, much of this done alone, giving him the opportunity to ponder his ineffectual relationships with his wife and daughter and his increasing lack of faith in God. He eventually meets an assortment of personalities on the trail, resulting in sometimes humorous, sometimes tearful events, and he eventually begins to understand the reason for his seemingly lost relationships with the people he loves the most and why he has begun to lose faith in God. High in the North Carolina mountains, he befriends an old man who begins to share with him his wisdom about life, relationships, prayer, and faith, enlightening him like never before. The old man explains some of the most difficult concepts of life in some of the simplest ways, and "Piece Maker," who spiritually and emotionally had been lost, is found.

Vom alten England in die Straßencafés von Paris, über das in der Augusthitze flirrende Korsika bis ins pulsierende New York führt uns diese fesselnde Familiensaga. Sie erzählt von der Macht der wahren Liebe über Jahrzehnte, Kontinente und Generationen hinweg – und davon, wie Herzen und Familien gerade dann miteinander vereint werden, wenn sie für immer verloren scheinen. England, 1928: Alice und Tom kennen sich aus unbeschwerten Kindertagen: sie, die vor Energie sprühende junge Aristokratin, und er, der noch unbekannte Maler. Ihre Liebe fühlt sich an wie die reinste Magie – doch nicht nur Alices Familie setzt alles daran, eine gemeinsame Zukunft zu verhindern. London, sechzig Jahre später: Die junge Fotografin Kate findet im Nachlass ihrer Großmutter eine alte Porträt-Skizze, die ihrer verstorbenen Mutter verblüffend ähnlich sieht. Was hat es mit der Zeichnung auf sich? Und wer ist die Frau darauf? Um dem Geheimnis um das Porträt und um die Vergangenheit ihrer Mutter näher zu kommen, macht sich Kate auf die Suche nach dem Künstler, dem berühmten Maler Thomas Stafford ... Die Stunde der Liebenden erzählt von Sehnsucht und Hoffnung, von Verlust und Schmerz, von Abenteuer und Freiheit. Davon, aus Konventionen auszubrechen und den Mut zu finden, seine Ängste zu überwinden. Und vor allem von Liebe und Nähe, die man zulassen muss, um sein Glück im Leben zu finden.

What does a person have to do to find out certain "family secrets"? Would life then make a little more sense? Maybe there are no big, bad secrets. How do you know unless you look? John Randt grew up in suburban Ohio, the only child of loving and capable parents. They gave him a childhood that was "orderly". Only when he went away to college did he discover that not every family in America would write the date of purchase on fresh raw eggs so each could be used in the order it was bought. In the Randt household nothing was ever spoiled, lost, or out of place. It was perhaps inevitable that he would become interested in people with "messy" lives. At length this would take him on a trip of discovery that included a southern community in the process of losing its own particular character and the last remnants of its innocence. He found himself involved with a one hundred year old family mystery, met a race car driving female cousin and a cast of other unforgettable characters. He ultimately found more than he sought.

This story of one little girl's journey through our foster-care system forms an intimate portrait of foster care in America and the children whose lives are forever shaped by it. Augusten Burroughs called Kathy Harrison's memoir Another Place at the Table a "riveting and profoundly moving story of a hero, disguised as an everyday woman." In One Small Boat, Harrison tells the story of one little girl who arrived on her doorstep, and describes how caring for this child was an experience that challenged everything she thought she knew about foster-care parenting and the needs of the children she shelters. Daisy was five when she arrived in Harrison's bustling home. Mother of three children by birth and three by adoption, and with a handful of foster kids always coming and going, Harrison had ten children under her roof at any given time. But Daisy was in many ways unique. Daisy's birth mother wasn't poor, uneducated, or drug addicted. She simply couldn't bring herself to take care of her little girl, and the effects on the child were heartrending. Daisy was unwilling to eat—even frightened of it—and seemed to have a severe speech impediment. After two weeks in Kathy's loving home, however, Daisy began to thrive. What had happened to her? And how can a foster-care parent give back all that has been taken from a child like Daisy—knowing that she might leave one day very soon? Harrison had seen many children pass through her doors, but this one touched her in a way she didn't immediately understand. One Small Boat will be of deep interest to anyone who has nurtured and cared for a child or anyone interested in the intricate web that is our social welfare system.

Many recovery books are for the beginner, and that makes sense. But then what? This grace-filled book is for people at later stages in their recovery who are looking to uncover the underlying causes for their addiction and heal the psychological and spiritual pain, often lingering from childhood that many addicts bear. Grace Lost and Found is an inspirational and deep exploration of problems and pain; providing a compassionate approach to healing addictions, compulsions and other unhealthy habits. The 40 essays, each with their own set of practices and affirmations, engage readers on a journey through body, mind and spirit, symbolic symptoms, pain messages, levels of consciousness, and an expanded view of identity and life. The essays reach right to the bottom of the addict’s bag of tricks--lack of accountability, the tendency to externalize blame, willfulness, defending and pretending, immaturity, denial--and offer wise, compassionate, and get-real spiritual counsel. As Cook reminds us, we tend to grow most from pain and crisis: “I help people find the ultimate treasure in their problems, the messages in their pain and the metaphors in their symptoms. We are all being guided to a higher, healthier path, when we pay attention.”

Not so long ago Marcus Walker was just another young commodities trader in Chicago, working hard and playing harder. But that's all in the past, part of a life half forgotten - a reality that vanished when he was attacked while camping and tossed aboard a starship bound for deep space. Desperately, Walker searches for explanations, only to realise he's trapped in a horrifying nightmare that is all too real. Instead of being a rich hotshot at the top of the food chain, Walker discovers he's just another amusing novelty, part of a cargo of "cute" aliens from primitive planets - destined to be sold as pets to highly advanced populations in "civilized" regions of the galaxy. Even if he weren't constantly watched by his captors, Walker has few options. After all, there is no escape from a speeding starship. Another man might resign himself to the inevitable and hope to be sold to a kindly owner, but not Walker. This former college football star has plenty of American ingenuity and no intention of admitting defeat, now or ever. In fact, he's only just begun to fight.

This selection of essays, articles, lectures, and other writings by Erik Barnouw, Dean of American media scholars, chronicles "the phenomenon of old media giving way to new, and then being replaced by them, as the ghosts of old media rise in new forms." In Media Lost and Found, the sixteenth century will introduce us to early stirrings of photography, as well as the rise of "black lists," which have a too-familiar ring within our own lifetime. The collection begins with an article ondocumentary film pioneer Robert Flaherty. Barnouw then moves to a discussion of his Dutch heritage and its role in Western civilization. This is followed by fascinating accounts of ingenious pioneers of camera obscura and magic lantern phantasmagoria, precursors of the magic of motion pictures. There are lively accounts of Barnouw's own experiences, an informative brief history of communications breakthroughs, and an examination of the foibles of media censorship. The final articles discuss theimportance of Indian filmmaker Satyajit Ray and cinematographer Boris Kaufman, brother of Soviet filmmakers Djiga Vertov and Mikhail Kaufman. In his writing and in his life, Erik Barnouw has been consistently elegant, self-deprecating, affectionate, and redolent of great depths, encouraging us to look for and foster them in our own lives.

Liz Culkin and Hugh Staynback experience love at first sight while students at Rutgers College in New Jersey, in 1948. Glorying in their first experience in romantic love, they are convinced that no power on earth could ever come between them. Of course, they are mistaken, as Hugh's commitment to his invalid mother coupled with his other family members' refusal to commit themselves to such an intrusion into their lives, leads to a truly heartbreaking separation of the lovers. This tale traces their lives, alternately, over a span of twenty years during which time they experience the good and the bad, with the latter, especially in Liz's case, being the dominant condition. As a high school principal she becomes entangled with a succession of men of power who resent her success in a male-dominated society and her fierce determination to stand by her principles regardless of the cost to herself. While she is surviving these twenty years, she often longs for the love and devotion she thought she had found in Hugh, who also experiences many difficult years, especially when he is exposed to the ravages of war in Korea. It is during those most difficult years when he frequently immerses himself in his memories of Liz and of the ecstatic love they once shared. Then, one day in 1972 Hugh decides that he must find Liz, and he launches his search in a most unorthodox manner, by reserving a banquet room in a facility in Hackensack, N.J., where he fully intends to be a groom at a wedding reception in the near future.
