Anglemore Park is the ancestral home of Lady Emily Hargreave's husband Colin. But the stately calm of country life is destroyed when their neighbor, the Marquess of Montagu, bursts through the French doors from the garden and falls down dead in front of the shocked gathering. But who has a motive for murdering the young aristocrat? The lovely cousin who was threatened by his engagement, the Oxford friend he falsely accused of cheating, the scheming vicar's daughter he shamelessly seduced or the relative no one knew existed who appears to claim the Montagu title? Who is the mysterious woman seen walking with him moments before he was brutally attacked? The trail takes readers into the gilded world of a British manor house and below stairs to the servants who know all the secrets. One family's hidden past and a forbidden passion are the clues to a puzzle only Lady Emily can solve.

The Nazi regime issues an edict that all Jews must leave Austria no later than November 9, 1938, and declares that those remaining will be taken to centers for redistribution. It is beyond all human comprehension that these concentration centers will be death camps to millions upon millions of people. How can this be real? This is their home, their country how can they take the threat seriously enough to RUN FOR THEIR LIVES? The world locks its doors, shutting out the Jews. Sigmund and Annie Klein and their two small children are among the desperate hordes begging for survival. This is the true story of what happened to them: how they overcame the heartaches and hardships they endured. It is a story of the human spirit. The author relates her impressions of these darkest of times, witnessed and experienced by herfirst as a young child, then as a girl growing into womanhood, and finally in retrospect.

Where does one find hope in the midst of profound suffering? Tony Backman aches to know. A blues-harmonica-playing child psychologist at a residential treatment center in Santa Rosa, California, Tony specializes in narrative therapy. His story-based technique empowers abused teenagers to reimagine their lives through myths and folktales and so restore their vitality. Such vitality, however, eludes Tony in his own life. Mired in depression, he longs for his fractured family and fends off childhood flashbacks too painful to face. Tony's mentor recommends classical underworld myths as a roadmap for the spiritual journey toward healing and hope, but Tony is too drained for the undertaking. Until Carey Foster enters his life. Carey is a golden-voiced eleven-year-old choral soloist at a local Catholic boys' home. Brought to Tony's treatment center with his wrists sliced, Carey cowers mutely with his secrets in the center's locked ward, a flicking middle finger his only beacon. Carey's healing depends on Tony's ability to navigate the labyrinth of deception and cryptic self-disclosure that conceals the soul's darkest secrets. It also depends upon Tony's willingness to navigate the labyrinth of love and disappointment lodged in his own soul. At once a psychological study of how trauma is healed; a hero's journey through the underworld of abuse, betrayal, and shattered faith; and a theological thriller in search of a credible and sustaining Sacred in the midst of unspeakable suffering, The God of Shattered Glass reveals that stories do indeed heal, and that the way to God is not up, but down.

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Kunsthalle Bielefeld, which was built by Philip Johnson (1966?68), the American artist Dennis Adams created a sculpture for the forecourt that simultaneously functions as a bus shelter on Bielefeld?s public transport network.0A significant part of the sculpture are two monitors, on which phrases - the ?confessions? in the title - are displayed as a film. The sum of all the individual German and English phrases - some quotes, some invented by Adams ? comes to a total runtime of two hours. It is not to be expected that anyone will read them all in situ ? this publication therefore brings all of the confessions together, documenting an essential element of the sculpture.00Exhibition: Kunsthalle Bielefeld, Germany (installed 2018).
