This book is about my life journey. I came a long way, starting out in the Middle East, and then my journey took me through Europe, before I arrived here to the “promise land.” I have lived under Fascism, Communism, and now Capitalism. I experienced firsthand the three ways of life in the twentieth century. As a young person, I survived the bombings in Hungary during World War II, the long train ride to Germany, and the life in the Camp and begging in the street for food so that we can have another day to live. I lived through the 1956 Hungarian uprising against communism and the dictatorship they stood for, survived the escape after the Russian Army invaded Hungary that crashed the peoples hope for a better future. All this experience made me stronger, more understanding, more tolerant, and a better person in life. I was extremely lucky throughout my life journey. I know God guided me all the way because without His help and His protection I would not be here today. I lived my life based on what I saw and learned from my parents when I was growing up and what I saw and learned from my adopted parents in this country. The values I received from my parents are my inheritance from them.

As a soldier, Peter Coghlan faced bombs, bullying, murderous mobs and Hodgkins Lymphoma, the aggressive cancer which ended his military career. But after moving to Perth, Australia with Jade, the love of his life, there was no time to dwell on the past as Peter enjoyed a pre-dinner drink on the patio with friends and family. The future on that hot, sunny evening seemed as bright as the weather until, suddenly and shockingly, his dreams were shattered by a massive brain stem stroke. A frantic dash to hospital and emergency surgery rushed by in a blur and it was only when Peter awoke from a coma that he realised the awful truth. The stroke had left him virtually paralysed, imprisoned in his own body. At least he could blink. Using an alphabet board to communicate, he spelled out his determination to get back everything he'd lost. This true life account of one man's fight against Locked-In Syndrome (LIS) is in turn heart-breaking, hilarious, harrowing and occasionally shocking. Yet, thanks to Peter's amazing courage, In the Blink of an Eye is never less than inspirational as he faces his greatest battle of all.

"Absolutely captivating....This is a masterpiece of women's fiction."—Booklist (starred review) "Absorbing....Fast-moving but emotionally resonant." —Kirkus reviews In the Blink of an Eye is award-winning author Jesse Blackadder’s deeply emotional drama that explores a family’s path to forgiveness and redemption in the aftermath of a tragedy. The Brennans—parents, Finn and Bridget, and their sons, Jarrah and Toby—have made a sea change, from chilly Hobart, Tasmania, to subtropical Murwillumbah, New South Wales. Feeling like foreigners in this land of sun and surf, they're still adjusting to work, school, and life in a sprawling purple clapboard house, when one morning, tragedy strikes. In the devastating aftermath, the questions fly. What really happened? And who's to blame? Determined to protect his family, Finn finds himself under the police and media spotlight. Guilty and enraged, Bridget spends nights hunting answers in the last place imaginable. Jarrah—his innocence lost—faces a sudden and frightening adulthood where nothing is certain. In the Blink of an Eye is a haunting, redemptive story about forgiveness and hope.

It is America's worst nightmare: A nuclear bomb destroys a major city. Thousands of Americans are dead and many more will die from radiation poisoning. Threats promising more attacks spread through the media. Panic has broken out in many cities. How could American intelligence have failed to detect a nuclear device? Who is responsible for the blast? Sean Falcone, national security advisor, is tasked with identifying and tracking down the attackers. Powerful forces within the Capital point the finger at Iran. But appearances are always deceiving, and never more so than when millions of innocent people may die for a crime they did not commit. With the potential to incite the entire Muslim world against America and bring the world to the brink of Armageddon, Falcone discovers an astonishing secret hidden deep within the upper echelons of Washington's elite...but why should the President—or the American people—believe him? Pulling from years of international affairs and defense planning experience, the former Secretary of Defense under Bill Clinton creates a sweeping, all-too-real political thriller. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

One wrong blink sparked a global outbreak of plague that mutated humans into brutal, conscienceless killers called Revenants. Dubbed the Father of the Apocalypse, Ren Leonard is a legend, a myth, the bringer of destruction upon humanity's head. A gatherer for the Stronghold, a small pocket of uninfected holed up in an old sports arena, Mackenzie Bright Runner is aware that supplies are dwindling. Travel is risky and fuel rare, forcing the Stronghold to rely on what can be scavenged during the light of day in their immediate area. Bargaining with Revenants is forbidden. Bargaining with the Father of the Apocalypse is a treasonous offense. But Mackenzie believes he's their only hope for survival. Dragging along her partner Bon for safety, she appeals to Leonard for help in turning the tide against the Revenants, only to be refused with a cryptic remark: Existence is futile. Branded traitors to their settlement, Bon is executed and Mackenzie is exiled. Separated from her lover, forced to rely on a man she doesn't quite trust, and armed only with a symbol to follow across a landscape barren of people and full of monsters, Mackenzie is about to learn what Ren could have told her: everything can change in the blink of an eye, and Revenants aren't the worst danger breathing down her neck.

“A highly personal, deeply affecting account of what it is to be yanked from a happy, well-ordered life and thrust into a sudden, unimaginable, terrifying darkness. Rikke Schmidt Kjærgaard has done the impossible of putting into words an experience that would seem to be beyond expressing.”—from the foreword by Bill Bryson It was New Year’s Day. Rikke Schmidt Kjærgaard, a young mother and scientist, was celebrating with family and friends when she was struck down with a sudden fever. Within hours, she’d suffered multiple organ failure and was clinically dead. Then, brought back to the edge of life—trapped in a near-death coma—she was given a 5 percent chance of survival. She awoke to find herself completely paralyzed, with blinking as her sole means of communicating with the outside world. The Blink of an Eye is Rikke’s gripping account of being locked inside her own body, and what it took to painstakingly relearn every basic life skill—from breathing and swallowing, speaking and walking, to truly living again. Much more than an account of recovery against all odds—this is, at its heart, a celebration of love, family, and every little thing that matters when life hangs in the balance.

She had nothing to lose… To say that desperation clouded Jane Falgoust's judgment was a colossal understatement. With a hurricane bearing down on New Orleans, the failed nurse-turned-waitress viewed it as an opportunity—to escape her tattered life. But then she saw the dog paddling frantically in the surging flood waters. She couldn't let this dog drown. From that one rescue, her nursing instincts kicked in and she started saving people—including herself. As the hurricane subsided, Jane tended the wounded in Dr. Ben Comeaux's makeshift street clinic. Sure, her life had turned upside down in the blink of an eye—but that was bad only if you were in a good place to begin with. Now it was time to rebuild—her life, her city—on a foundation of hope.
