Grace Dannings has lived her entire young life in the safe and idyllic Dartmoor village of Walkhampton, working as a maid at a farm within sight of her own humble family home. Her only wish is that nothing will ever change in her contented, happy existence. But it is May 1914 and the village is alive with talk of the situation in Europe. When war breaks out, its ugly tentacles reach everyone in the village, leaving no one untouched among Grace's family, neighbours and friends. Grace sees it as her duty to step into the breach wherever she is needed, beginning with the wheelwrights' at the heart of the village. Grappling with her own anguish and loss, she later discovers supreme fulfilment in a new vocation, but at what personal cost? A poignant, sensitive and intensely moving account of one village's war, and the endurance of those who waited at home for news of their loved ones.

In this volume, leading American, European, and Indian scholars including John E. Cort, Friedhelm Hardy, Padmanabh S. Jaini, Laurie L. Patton, A. K. Ramanujan, Velcheru Narayana Rao, and David Shulman discuss the subject of the Puran'as, focusing particularly on the relationship between the "Great Puran'as" of the Sanskrit tradition and the many other sorts of Puran'as. The Puran'as are essentially collections of stories dealing with all aspects of myth, ritual, science, and history, and the authors of these essays are all superb storytellers.

Paula is a victim of mysterious harassment. She lives near the railway line that carries nuclear waste through the heart of London and feels curiously, constantly unwell. Grace, her remarkable eighty-five-year-old aunt, deplores the evils of the modern world. When she, too, is plagued by silent phone calls, she escapes to Seabourne on the South Coast, where nothing ever happens except quiet deaths and holidays. Bruno is a sexually quirky private detective who attacks daisies with scissors, germs with bleach and old ladies for fun. If he follows Grace to Seabourne, can anything save her? Inspired by the real-life murder of anti-nuclear protester Hilda Murrell, Grace is a breathtaking thriller that asks whether, in a bankrupt, dishonest, security-mad Britain, courage and love still count for something. Excellent' The Times Heart-stoppingly exciting' Time Out Maggie Gee's excellent novel treads a sure path between love and fear, taking as its starting point sinister and secret happenings in contemporary England.

In this important evangelical treatise Vincent expounds on Luke 19:41-42, “And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong to thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.” He covers five main doctrines that apply to believers and unbelievers respectively: Doctrine 1: Christ is Full of Compassion; Doctrine 2: The Lord Grants a Day of Grace; Doctrine 3: Peace from God Given in the Day of Grace through Christ; Doctrine 4: Spiritual Blindness of Those Without Peace; and, Doctrine 5: Souls that are Left in Darkness. This treatise is especially practical for those who need the grace of Christ for conversion. This is one of those works Christians should give their unbelieving friends and family members that God may use this work to save them in this "day of grace." This is not a scan or facsimile, has been updated in modern English for easy reading and has an active table of contents for electronic versions.

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that make all the difference, like chromosomes, sperm, bugs or an endangered seabird that nests in old-growth forests. But, what’s big or what’s little depends entirely on your perspective. Faye Pearson is a three-and-a-half-foot tall female scientist doing entomological research in the tallest trees on Vancouver Island, who is pit with a ragtag group of protesters against the might of a multinational logging corporation. The story of Faye and her struggle to function in a world not made for people her size is poignant and heart-warming. Whether she is lusting after her climbing partner, standing up to a conflicted logging boss, dressing down an insulting interviewee, nurturing a wayward child in the midst of an environmental standoff, or being carted off under the arm of a Mountie, you’ll be unable to resist this amazing woman. There is a fall in Eriksson’s novel, but also incredible moments of grace. Falling from Grace is a novel of no small achievement.
