It is 1934 in La Paz when Elsa, a charming Bolivian of Inca descent, meets Jan, a handsome Czech engineer. Three days later he proposed marriage to her. In 1938, when multitudes abandon the Old Continent, they move to Prague with two children born in Argentina. My Roots Continents Apart is an inspiring account of a family's struggle to survive and stay together during the turmoil of Second World War in Europe. The narrative unfolds across venturesome places and situations in Czechoslovakia, Romania and the Balkans, alongside Jan's role as member of the Czech Resistance. The Nazis convicted him, yet Albert Goering, brother of Herman, saved his life. During the harsh winter of 1946 the family escapes from the Russian invaders and ultimately returns to South America's post war autocratic Argentina. Elsa Wagner started to write this story motivated by the ubiquitous "live" television coverage of warfare since the 1990's, which brought back memories of her childhood. Based on her mother's book El Frente Desarmado, published in 1952, and after further research of her roots, Elsa realized that she was creating a whole new story involving centuries of history and cultures so diverse and apart as Bolivia and Czechoslovakia.

The pressure of expectations often means that priests fail to care for themselves and neglect their own spiritual life. Thinking they must be able to do it all, the need to be constantly available, to achieve and succeed, to cope with difficult people, to defend church teaching they question, lack of time for prayer, unresolved doubt and personal difficulty can all cause spiritual malaise. Send My Roots Rain explores these pressures and offers realistic and supportive ways priests can address them while nurturing their own wellbeing and spiritual development. Christopher Chapman draws on more than thirty years’ experience of spiritual direction, formational training and retreat leading, as well as his own experience of priesthood, to offer a host of simple, life-giving practices and personal disciplines for spiritual health. Full of wise advice from someone who understands, this is a book that priests will turn to again and again.

My Roots, My Destiny, based on a profound historical investigation and the personal recollections of the author Gabriel Groszman, describes the fate of his family in the context of the history of the Central European Jews during two centuries. The narration takes us from the Jewish Enlightenment and Emancipation through the World Wars and their shattering consequences, culminating in the loss of millions of European Jews in the Holocaust. The family history, narrated through several generations, reflects the shared destiny of Austro-Hungarian and German Jewry and their achievements in spite of discrimination and open persecution leading to exile, survival or death. The story, which unfolds without resentment, takes us with irony and humor from the age of the Hapsburg Empire through the author's own coming of age in an increasingly anti-Semitic Hungary, the Nazi terror, a brief period of democracy, communist dictatorship and, finally, life in Austria under the occupation of the victorious allies. Gabriel Groszman was born in 1930 in a small Hungarian village. When he was 10 years old, his religious Jewish family moved to Budapest under the pressure of anti-Semitic laws. There he attended an Orthodox middle school until 1944, at which time Germany occupied Hungary. During the ensuing twelve months, his family struggled to elude the Nazi death trap. In 1949, they left the country, then under communist rule, for Vienna, where he began his university studies. Three years later, they emigrated to Argentina, where Groszman married, had three children, and built up a successful industrial company. In 2003, he moved with his wife to Florida. He published his book My Roots, My Destiny in Spanish in 2009, followed by the German and English translations in August and September 2011, respectively. He is now working on his second endeavor, a family saga in the context of the history of the German Jews.

My Roots, My Love, My Destinyis the story of two strong women, told across an epic and rich canvas painted by two wars and two unique destinies. In her ninety-six years, Ogeri, author Beatrice Akpu Inyang Eleje’s mother, experienced danger, heartbreak, and great love. Her journey spanned most of the twentieth century and was dictated by the societal norms, values, and traditions of the Nigeria of her time. Lovingly reconstructed, these are a few of Eleje’s most beloved and revered memories of her mother. For the daughter, her journey was spent attempting to navigate rapidly changing waters. Caught between two colliding civilizations—the Western civilization and African culture and Nigeria—two cultures, and two world views, her path was less certain. While one world encouraged independence, the other demanded absolute filial obedience. Rebellion was inevitable. As Eleje listened to her mother speak of her life, the similarities emerged. Both women survived their husbands, and both knew the heartache of illness, loss, and uncertainty—as well as the joys of love in the most unexpected places. But through it all rings a life-sustaining truth worth celebrating: no matter how dark the tunnel, there is always light just around the corner ... if you can just lift your head to look. Designed to inspire younger women to persevere in the face of seemingly in-surmountable odds, the story of these two women proves that no matter what, you just need to take the next step—to-ward hope.
