The Imam door Harvey Havel

Dit boek is een elektronisch boek, geen fysiek boek.

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door Harvey.Havel (auteur): Your honest comments are greatly appreciated! Please post them anywhere you like online.

Beschrijving: Once in a lifetime comes a novel that deeply probes the ideas and perceptions of religious thought, only to defy its traditions and map out a more meaningful direction towards truth and understanding. The Imam is such a novel. It is an ambitious attempt to paint the human face of Shia Islam, to distinguish what Shia Islam ought to be from what it actually is. The result is an explosive and provocative novel that bravely questions the tenets of Islam and especially the motivations of its clerics and political leaders.

The Imam is many things, but most of all it is an epic tale of love, hope, tyranny, and betrayal. The narrative follows two of Islam’s holiest men: one of them the next Caliphate of Islam who is taken to the United States at birth and kept in hiding there, the second his open and visible representative who remains in the Middle East. Their disciples straddle these two opposite worlds as they try in vain to fulfill a divine prophecy, which calls for the holy expansion of Islam into the Western world.

Havel has penned a religious thriller that feeds the intellect as well as the appetite for superb storytelling and original, dynamic characters. His prose is clear, focused, and poetic. It is a powerful and unforgettable read, both astonishing and accessible to all readers. Once begun, The Imam is impossible to put down. In many ways, this novel makes a strong and timely contribution to the welfare of American Letters.

- Wait for Me by J.J. Valentin

A deeply moving story about love, loss and the strength it takes to carry on.

An elderly man named Nicholi sits alone on his porch gripped by sorrow remembering the death of his first love as he looks beyond the tall grass at her childhood home. Every day he sits outside desperately hoping to see her again . . . counting the days of his old age.
On his 73rd birthday, Nicholi is approached by an unexpected visitor. To his surprise, this "visitor" shares remarkable similarities with his first love. While conversing with her, Nicholi shares the story of his life and, in turn, is forced to relive his painful past in order to "see" her true identity and the significance of her visit.

Excerpt: I woke up to the sound of the EKG, with an IV in my arm and the whispering of my parents beside me. I opened my eyes slowly, feeling dizzy and unsteady, and for a moment I didn't realize where I was. I thought it was all a dream until reality hit, and it hit hard. The doctors, nurses, and everyone in the general area had to restrain me back into bed. I remember screaming out for Sadie and then everything went black again. I was put back into a deep sleep, and I wouldn't wake for several hours.
When I woke up, I was heavily drugged and slow thinking, but whatever they had given me had only calmed my body, not my soul; I was still in deep, deep darkness.
"Nicky?" my mother spoke softly. I could hear the concern in her voice as she clicked the nurse-call button.
A nurse came into the room immediately. "Hello, Nicholi. We're really glad to see those eyes of yours. You're a fighter."
I could barely speak--my throat was as dry as a clay pot on a sunny day--but I'd be damned if I didn't ask. I was afraid to hear the truth, but I needed to know.
"Where's Sadie?" I let out, although I somehow already knew. But there was still that small hope--that one miracle I believed God had owed me that I never cashed in.
The nurse looked grim and asked if my parents would like to tell me.
"Sadie didn't make it, son," my father confirmed, as he placed his hand on my shoulder and my mother placed her hand in mine. Even though I had already known it in my heart, the confirmation felt as if she had died all over again. The truth was now cemented, and hope was gone forever.
I shrugged my parents off of me. Their touch felt wrong. I didn't want the people who could have stopped this from happening years ago to touch me. It made me sick to my stomach.
I closed my eyes and tried to think of anything else out of hope of distracting my mind because I felt like I was slipping away; I felt my sanity abandoning me. I fought for control by trying to remember better times, and my thoughts took me to a time when Sadie was a little girl--the little girl who had claimed my heart from the start. I wanted to stay in those memories where we innocently enjoyed each other's company, where I could hear her laugh before her cries ever began, where I could see the joy in her eyes before the pain came. It was all too much, but I was beyond the point of crying. I was in shock. I couldn't believe that I was forced to live a life without her. All I ever known was her--she was my life. When I opened my eyes, no emotion was upon my face, and I remained silent as I stared at the small cracks and bumps on the hospital wall in front of me. I felt nothingness. I felt void. I felt robotic. I felt soulless. Sadie was the source of my life, and when she went, so did I.

Dit boek is een elektronisch boek, geen fysiek boek.

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door AndreaHahnfeld (auteur): Hi there, I am the author of The Marvelous Misfits of Westminster and would appreciate people interested in magical realism, fantasy, and love stories. You'll get access to your personal copy of the e-book and I'd like you to review my short story and spread the word.

Beschrijving: What if dogs were not only man's best friend - but also his last hope? Clement is a disgraced dog show judge whose wife, Edith, left him under mysterious circumstances. When he is asked to step in as a last-minute substitute to judge at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, he learns two things: Edith is about to be killed by a shadow and it’s up to him to prevent it.

According to the Hunts, the only way to save Edith is making sure Irving, a hideous mongrel dog with special abilities, wins Best in Show.

This heart-hugging story about love, loss, and hope features memorable characters. The story was inspired by T. S. Garp’s first story, The Pension Grillparzer. If you liked this short story from John Irving’s novel The World According to Garp, you’ll love The Marvelous Misfits of Westminster.

I fell in love with the story from the first page. Every character captured my attention. The piece is fantastic and by the end, I wanted more of it. Pojata Miškinytė

When Zaya is conscripted into service life at the Tarahik Military base, the ghost is waiting. Zaya’s ability to see the dead is the key that could annihilate human existence, and sinister forces will go to unstoppable lengths to get it.

Determined to find the link between her past and a puzzle that threatens the world, Zaya joins forces with Captain Jad Arden, the pair propelled into a breakneck chase across haunted wastelands, desolate ruins, and ravaged cities. But Jad has secrets of his own, and Zaya’s feelings for him could be her undoing.

One thing the wraith does ensure — the wrong choice will cost Zaya her life.

The HOLY BIBLE Feminine Translation Version door JW Farquhar (Mark 7 Publishing)

Dit boek is een elektronisch boek, geen fysiek boek.

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door mark7publishing (uitgever): The reason for this giveaway is to introduce the feminine attributes of God with a translation made through the Cross with the hope that the reader would post a review on Amazon.

Beschrijving: The HOLY BIBLE Feminine Translation Version
Published by Mark 7 Publishing, Oct 23, 2020
ISBN 978-0-9796263-8-8
Digital Edition for Ebook readers: Available in Epub, Mobi for Kindle and PDF
The Holy Bible Feminine Translation Version is a word-for-word translation commonly known as a literal translation. It attempts to provide as close as possible a direct translation of the words themselves. The focus is on accuracy. It is not a popular thought-for-thought translation, where the focus is on readability.
The FTV Bible uses the American Standard Version of 1901 (ASV) for its starting textual base. The ASV is the product of the work of over 50 Evangelical Christian scholars that has been called "The Rock of Biblical Honesty." The goal of the FTV Bible is to carry forward this legacy of biblical Honesty with recognition of the feminine attributes of God as well as His masculine attributes.
The FTV Bible is classified as a study Bible that provides a unique tool for deciphering and reading Bible text. It teaches one how to SEE and visually perceive Scripture, which the Bible requires throughout with the word behold. This added human resource of sight produces a new and more complete understanding of Scripture with some unique results—the feminine attributes of God, and the consistency of salvation through the Cross.
Concerning consistency, a fourteen year Bible study has recently ended with a major discovery. Translation of the New Testament gender of the Holy Spirit in traditional Bibles has not been the same as the Old Testament gender of the Holy Spirit. Traditionally the New Testament Holy Spirit has been translated from Greek to be a neutral gendered Spirit, and/or translated from Latin to be a masculine gendered Spirit. The Feminine Translation Version of the Holy Bible (FTV) solves this language induced gender confusion by translating the Holy Spirit to be feminine gendered, which is consistent with the same feminine gender of the Holy Spirit in the Old Testament.
The Feminine Translation Version is a result of interpreting and translating the Bible through the beginning first verse in the Bible. It is an authoritative foundation cross that shows the Creator God plus three realms: time, spiritual and physical. Scripture organized through the lens of this Foundation Cross is made visible in the image of the cross. In contrast traditional Bible interpretation is generally made with a choice of one, or mix, of four speculative methods: literal, allegorical, moral, or mystical.
The Cross bears witness to a feminine Most High Holy Spirit of Light at the top of the cross. She is translated in this FTV Bible to be the Heavenly Spiritual Mother of the Son of God, and mother of the children of the Light. The theme of the complete Cross also bears witness to the first mother in the physical Creation at the foot of the Cross. She is translated to be from the evening, introduced six times in the spiritual Creation. This mother on earth was introduced by the first man, when the man called his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother of all living humans. (Gen 3:20). All living humans are translated to be children of our Father God through her from whom we are all natural descendants. She is also translated to be the daughter of God, and the earthly spiritual mother of the Son of man.
The divine name of the Almighty is consistently rendered YHWH 6,876 times in this FTV Bible, rather than Jehovah as it appears in the American Standard Version, or rather than LORD as it appears mostly in the King James Bible, and many others. In Greek these letters of God are called the Tetragrammaton that means “consisting of four letters.” They are four Hebrew letters, Yod, Hey, Waw, and Hey for YHWH written in Hebrew like this: יהוה. pronounced Yahwey. In this Bible YHWH is the written name of God.
The FTV Bible is two books in one, because humans learn two ways by both hearing and seeing. One can hear the Bible text when it’s read, but historically there have been no pictures of Scripture in the Bible to see…until now in this FTV Bible. First there is the full Bible text that includes both OT and NT. Behind the Bible text there is a Bible Study section with a cipher-generated 77 page picture tour for reading, deciphering and understanding the Bible. Validated with biblical numbers, the Cipher bears witness of a single divine authorship of the Bible. It illustrates how the cross is the consistent destination of Seven Spirits of God.
Embedded in the cipher is a call to action for the Church. Awaken! Although Jesus is witnessed in the New Testament to be the Son of God, he most often called himself the Son of man. In the four gospels the Son of man, spoken only by Jesus, occurs almost three times more than the Son of God. Jesus was trying to tell us something. Like the Son of man we on earth are also children of God our Father through His earthly daughter on the foot of the Cross. Jesus testified to this in Luke 17: 21-22, when he said the Kingdom of God is within us. If the Church accepts this testimony from Jesus, the "Four Gospel Prophecy Cross" will be complete, and the Kingdom of God will finally come to earth as it is in heaven, just as Jesus prayed for in the Lord's Prayer.
The cipher's evidence of one divine authorship through both Old and New Testaments creates a unique audience for this Bible. First, are the 14 Tribes of Israel, then atheists and agnostics, Trinitarians and Messianic Christians, and anyone else who has ever had trouble understanding, or believing the HOLY BIBLE.

Beschrijving: Agathe Santos made a vow. To love her child until the very last heartbeat. Hers. Not theirs…

Four years after the death of her daughter, Agathe knows that hope is for losers and so is love. Work has become her greatest escape. But even the world’s loneliest woman can’t hide forever…

Reluctant CEO Luke Tindall wants a wife, a family, a love that will last. He might have hired Agathe to save his company and deal with his goofy brother, but from the very first meeting, he has desired far more than her sharp wit and tireless work ethic. If only her past wasn’t such a big secret. If only that secret wasn’t a wound she didn’t want healed. Maybe then she’d share more with him than her body.

But even as Agathe can no longer deny her feelings for Luke, love is not something she thinks she deserves. Now she must do the impossible: deal with her unresolved issues, or lose Luke forever.

The Case Files of Aldicus Vescard door Mark William Chase (New Realm Books)

Dit boek is een elektronisch boek, geen fysiek boek.

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door mwchase (auteur): I am giving away copies of The Case Files of Aldicus Vescard in exchange for reviews. I prefer reviews on the book's page on Amazon.com, but you may also put the review on Goodreads and here on LibraryThing. Thank you kindly in advance!

Beschrijving: Detective Aldicus Vescard knows all too well the monsters and madmen who prowl the fog-veiled streets of Corradon. He is, after all, a monster himself. Cursed in his errant past, his body now harbors a blazing fiend of pure, elemental chaos—kept in check by the bonds that smother his own magical abilities.

But crime ever turns in the Clockwork City, and none are better suited to investigate those most sinister deeds of inscrutable sorcery than Corradon’s greatest detective magus. With his loyal apprentice, Keldon Veldanor, and a host of street-smart allies, Aldicus will face a crucible of sorcery and villainy with only his wits and the science of forensic alchemy to aid him.

This is a steampunk fantasy detective mystery. It takes place in a secondary fantasy world, not Earth. The book consists of 15 case files, investigated by Aldicus Vescard, but the cases become interrelated as the larger story unfolds. There is little profanity (PG level) and no sexual content. The book is approximately 180,000 words long.

A Love Attempt door Morhaf Al Achkar

Aangeboden door Morhaf (literair agent): Enter to win an exclusive copy of my new release Book: A Love Attempt

If you end up enjoying this book, I would be extremely grateful if you leave a brief review on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08Z...

Beschrijving: Developing your emotional intelligence? Learn simple and practical techniques to cultivate your love competence…

Everyone wants love. We’re so desperate for it that we are frequently willing to take any deformed shape of it. But what if we can bring in the idea in a developed and genuine form to make it available to every person?

While there is no such thing as a “Love Doctor,” you now have a viable alternative. Morhaf Al Achkar obtained his Ph.D in education and is currently a practicing family physician at the University of Washington. He was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. Since then, his research has focused on the experience of patients living with cancers. His first book is based on interviews I did with 39 patients who live, like him, with advanced illness. He explored how these patients find meaning, cope, and build resilience. Using his deep understanding of philosophical concepts, Morhaf shares his understanding of love from the perspective of someone aware of his finitude.

By following his easy-to-apply practical exercises, Morhaf invites you on a journey of dialogue and reflection to Heighten your Empathic Abilities.

Inside A Love Attempt, you’ll learn:
- The Pragmatics of Love
- How to Love by recognizing and capturing the opportunity.
- How to Love and forget by purifying and receiving love afresh
- How to reconstruct what is being and learn about context and biography to communicate with love
- How to develop a strategy to reinforce and abstract some learning about yourself to Become Authentic with Love
- And much, much more!

A Love Attempt is the third book in Dr. Alachkar’s self-help series. The first was on resilience and meaning. The second, his memoir, was released only six months before the first draft of this project. In Being Authentic, he wrote ideas about love but did not develop them sufficiently. So he is completing that project here

Dr. Alachkar’s elegant but transparent manuscript is packed with thought-provoking insights and concrete action steps to make salient our native competency for loving so we can then orient our next actions toward embracing love. If you want to learn the conceptualization of love and say “My next act is A Love Attempt!” then you can’t afford to miss Morhaf’s essential guide.

Unlock your true love potential with this easy-to-follow guide Today!

Tough Love door Melanie A. Smith (Wicked Dreams Publishing)

Dit boek is een elektronisch boek, geen fysiek boek.

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door Melanie_A_Smith (auteur): Calling all steamy contemporary romance readers: My latest release needs your honest review! This title is currently available on all major platforms, though Amazon reviews would be very much appreciated.

This forced-proximity, age-gap romance has a feisty heroine, a swoon-worthy hero, and a no-nonsense grandma determined to get them together. If you like your romance angsty with high heat, please consider reading and reviewing. Review copies are available in MOBI, EPUB, and PDF. Thanks so much!

Beschrijving: From award-winning and international best-selling author Melanie A. Smith comes a standalone steamy contemporary romance about life choices, love, and finding yourself in between.

Sometimes you need a bit of tough love to get where you’re supposed to be …

Mia Anderson has been living a life that was chosen for her. But her impending thirtieth birthday is the wake-up call she needed to stop wasting time on all the wrong pursuits. Just as she’s figuring out what she wants to do about it, her beloved grandmother falls ill and Mia drops everything to be with her. What she didn’t expect to find in her grandmother’s tiny mountain town is the courage to quit working for her father, supplied by a little tough love from her Gran. Now faced with an uncertain future, the last thing on her mind is finding love.

Nate Edwards is living a solitary life deep in the Cascade Mountains of Washington. He’s content, or at least he thinks he is — until the granddaughter of a good friend shows up and he starts having feelings he thought he’d never have again. But Mia’s future isn’t in Alpine Ridge, so acting on it would lead to nothing but heartbreak. Still, their connection is undeniable and circumstances continue to push them together, despite their resistance. Will Mia stick to her decision to carve her own path? And if she does, will it be with Nate? Or is he doomed to an isolated life?

My Fellow Americans door Yuvraj Singh (Librecron)

Dit boek is een elektronisch boek, geen fysiek boek.

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door yuvraj_singh (auteur): I worked on this book for 11 months. I had to coordinate between 63 other contributors in order to finish it, and it's been a gratifying experience. One of my main goals was to make the book accessible. It's why I went with a cheap price on my own site. It's very much in the spirit of Open Access, so I encourage readers to share either the link or the book file itself.

Suggestions on how I can improve it even further are welcome. I'll be working on it for a long time into the future.

I hope you enjoy it. My email is in the book, so if you have any questions, feel free to reach out.

Beschrijving: On January 20th, the incoming president delivers their inaugural address in a tradition that goes back to 1789, with the first inauguration of George Washington. The address tells our fellow Americans – and our neighbors around the world – that the best is yet to come and provides a roadmap on how to get there.
My Fellow Americans brings together all of the inaugural addresses – from George Washington's first in 1789, up until Donald Trump's in 2016 – with 63 essays from leading scholars, speechwriters, historians, biographers, and experts on the presidents and their era. Contributors have won the Pulitzer Prize, the Bancroft Prize, have been New York Times Bestsellers, National Book Award winners, editors of the papers of the presidents, and are all-around experts on their subject.
What was a president going to be dealing with heading into the highest office in the land? What decisions did they make and how did they impact the trajectory of the United States? What has their legacy been in & out of office? And what did they want to do for the country? These questions, and more, are answered by the wisdom of some of the people that know these presidents best.

Beschrijving: Tom Scougher is in a downward spiral, teaching a class he dislikes almost as much as he dislikes himself. He yearns for the life of yesteryear when he was younger and fitter, and mourns the premature death of his wife. He has few friends and he lives in fear of his Head Teacher Zara.
A chance encounter leads Scougher to meet journalist Yasmin Middleton while she’s researching the real reasons behind a string of fake-news-style, and frankly bizarre, government announcements. What is suddenly wrong with exercise and healthy food? Why don’t the government want teachers to teach? Why are school dinners being supplied by kebab shops? Yasmin thinks it must be some kind of deep-seated scam but has no inclination as to the full extent of the scheme lurking in the background.
As Scougher takes the first steps to turn his jaded life around, Yasmin begins to discover the real horror of the government plot.

It is hilarious two-part book series following the madcap adventures of four elderly musicians. I will send you a direct download link, so you can get From Britain With Love in either eBook, mobi, or pdf, which I hope you enjoy. Happy reading!

Beschrijving: Fossdyke Retirement Home has seen its fair share of quirky characters, but it’s never seen the likes of these four geriatric rockers!
To outsiders, they are sweet, funny, if not a tad bit ornery. To those in the know, they are meddlesome, rebellious, and in way over their heads. When chaos erupts, they’re not far behind.
What begin as ordinary days, where others their age would spend their time chatting up a friend or family member, these four spend their days and nights making music, performing for their legion of fans, globetrotting to exciting destinations, and of course, getting mixed up in perilous situations. Between outrunning the press and persistent record companies, coming face-to-face with ISIS rebels, and the occasional death or two, it’s all they can do to keep their wits about them and escape injury.

Follow the madcap adventures of Britain’s most irreverently lovable elderly rockers as they trip, stumble, and fall into one situation after another and have a few laughs along the way in From Britain with Love, a hilarious action-packed series!

Getting old doesn't mean you can't have fun. It just means you know how to get away with it!

From near death to casting out demons this is also my story of how I came to know the truth and love of the one true God.
God the truth or Satan the lie, which one would you believe?

Welsh Gold: Mrogi-Rixs Yr Riketo door Howard Matthews

Dit boek is een elektronisch boek, geen fysiek boek.

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door Mylibrevs (uitgever): This book is available as ebook only in epub, mobi and PDF formats.

I hope you enjoy this book and post a review on Amazon.

Beschrijving: Most people are lucky if they can trace their families back more than five or six generations. Tom Jaeger needed to search forwards in time and find the descendants of eight people who lived in the 7th century.
To be traceable and appear in the historical record, their relatives would need to have been wealthy, in positions of power, to have held an office of state or in the Church or to have won a battle. That’s difficult to do, generation after generation.
It might be easier if they still lived in the same area as their ancestors. But between the 7th and 11th centuries Britain was invaded by the Jutes, the Angles, the Saxons, the Vikings several times and finally by the Normans. Every time this happened, people with wealth or in positions of power were wiped out. There were exceptions, particularly around the edges of Britain, in Scotland, Cumbria, Wales and Cornwall.

THE DARKNESS THAT SLEPT door Keegan & Tristen Kozinski (kozinski publishing)

Dit boek is een elektronisch boek, geen fysiek boek.

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door KeeganKozinski (auteur): The book is a high-fantasy narrative that is routinely likened to J.R.R. Tolkien and George Martin. If that is not your cup of tea, plz don't request a copy.
We (the authors) have given the book an extensive revision and are here looking for reviews. Since this Jan. newly revised edition it has received consistent 4 and 5 stars from readers favorite and the goodreads book exchange.
We would like the review or rating posted on Goodreads and on any of the following, Apple, Barnes&Noble, kobo or amazon.

Beschrijving: In the West, the God-Emperor Cardolyn Tyier broods over his vast conquests and plots the subjugation of all other kingdoms.
To the South, the Kalvonder plutocracy continues their bloody entertainments, too invested in small schemes, transient vices and petty ascensions to notice one of their own has a far grander design.
From the East, a legion of paladins embarks on a crusade of holy conquest against the secluded Northlands, intent on supplanting the land’s sovereign deity and crushing it beneath their pantheon.
But these are children’s squabbles, for a forgotten evil hides behind these conflicts, amassing power and guiding humanity toward the precipice.
The world has had many names for it, but men always called it the Muntalabacs: Dread Lords.
The Avenar know one has resurfaced. They can feel his quiet footsteps resounding across the world and heralding the renewed conflict between their families. The Avenar are spent, though, and will need whatever help they can find, be it from eccentrics, outcasts or madmen.

Born This Way door Tammy Ferebee (Tammy Ferebee)

Dit boek is een elektronisch boek, geen fysiek boek.

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door TammyFerebee (auteur): *Seeking Amazon Reviews*

***I can gift you an ebook via Amazon. I do not have a PDF file to send. Thank you.***

!!!TRIGGER WARNING!!!

“Born This Way” is a novella. It’s a dark tale of a young gay teen, raised in a religious small town in the South. The themes are controversial and the subject matter is heavy and mature. Also, though I am an LGBT supporter, my character encounters some bullying, so you will read some offensive language and slurs.

Beschrijving: Being yourself should never come at this price.

Joseph is the son anyone would wish to have—anyone except his pastor father, that is. Joseph is gay, and where he comes from, his sexual orientation makes him a pariah. Tormented by the incorrigible denizens of his unprogressive Southern town, Joseph finds himself desperate for support from other members of the LGBT community. He turns to the internet with the hope of finding it, and, unexpectedly, Joseph finds more. Bruce.

An unlikely virtual friendship between Joseph and Bruce grows into something more, leading to a seemingly fated meeting. Joseph’s future suddenly looks brighter than ever, but no one could’ve ever predicted what would transpire after the two finally meet.

Your Soul's Love: Living the Love You Planned Before You Were Born door Robert Schwartz (Whispering Winds Press)

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door CourageousSouls (auteur): I am both the author and the publisher. The book just came out this month, so I am giving away copies to generate reviews and positive word of mouth.

Beschrijving: In his groundbreaking first book, Your Soul’s Plan: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born, Robert Schwartz (yoursoulsplan.com) brought the concept of pre-birth planning into the mainstream. In his second book, Your Soul’s Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born, he dove even deeper by examining the pre-birth planning of other common life challenges. Now, in his third book, Your Soul’s Love, he explores the pre-birth planning of challenges related to romantic relationships or their absence: infidelity; impotence; raising children alone after the death of one’s partner; being single; and celibate relationships. Working again with several gifted mediums and channels, and this time incorporating the Between Lives Soul Regressions he does as a skilled hypnotist, Schwartz brings forth great wisdom and love from "the other side" to explain why we plan such experiences before we are born.

Through the stories in Your Soul’s Love you can:
-Cultivate greater love and respect for both your partner and yourself
-Empathize more deeply with your partner
-Forgive your partner and yourself for any pain caused, thus healing your relationship
-See how your romantic relationship fosters your and your partner’s evolution
-Replace resistance and suffering with abiding joy and peace

"Your Soul's Love is a stirring account of spiritual adventures. These open a new doorway, not only into the prospect of an afterlife but also into our most intimate, human selves. I have heard many of these same kinds of accounts from my own patients."
-Dr. Raymond Moody, Jr., author of Life After Life and Making Sense of Nonsense

"In Your Soul's Love Rob Schwartz takes the reader on an extraordinary journey into the pre-birth planning of intimate relationships. Schwartz, a caring and compassionate guide, shares the experiences of individuals he has worked with. Through their encounters with spirit guides, and using insights gained in Between Lives Soul Regressions, he helps us see that the challenges we encounter in our love relationships are intentional and serve the soul in its evolution. This book will challenge the way you see your intimate relationships, and it will invite you to consider how these relationships are calling you to heal, claim your power, and step into the fullness of your being."
-Patricia Pearce, author of Beyond Jesus: My Spiritual Odyssey

"Rob Schwartz is a pioneer in pre-birth planning, a field supported by a growing body of clinical and experiential evidence. This concept can answer tough questions and assist challenges experienced by many people. In Your Soul's Love he addresses life issues that cause significant searching, struggling, and suffering. Rob's natural curiosity, deep caring, clinical experience, and obvious intelligence are evident in this easy-to-read and interesting book. Kudos for another important work!"
- Mark Pitstick MA, DC, SoulProof.com, SoulPhone.org

"Many years ago I was engrossed by Robert Schwartz’s first book, Your Soul’s Plan, and I am equally fascinated by his latest book, Your Soul’s Love. I was intrigued by the soul’s pre-life decisions to experience common situations from infidelity to loneliness to impotence, the reasons for these decisions, and the learnings that came from them. Read this book if you can."
-Diana Cooper, angel and Archangel channel, author of Birthing a New Civilization: Transition to the New Golden Age in 2032

"Gripping stories and brilliant examples make this a constant page-turner. It is fascinating to discover how one's soul sees today's life challenges from a broader perspective and in a higher light."
-Owen Waters, author of The Shift: The Revolution in Human Consciousness.

My husband to be was rich,easy on the eyes and a complete gentleman.
The best part of this arranged marriage was,James and I were already madly in love.
Whatever could go wrong with such a fairytale love story?
Everything.
It turned out that I was also the dumbest person in the world.
I was provoked.
That's my only excuse for doing what I did.
Now I'm caught in a web of my own making.
Instead of uniting our two families just like my great-grandfather wanted,I was on track to turn our families into bitter,feuding enemies.

Dit boek is een elektronisch boek, geen fysiek boek.

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door Kevin_Kalu (auteur): Sequel to Ibrahim and The Magicians' Rebellion, Ibrahim: A Tale of Two Worlds builds upon the enchanting plot and charming characterization of the first novel.

Requesting in-depth reviews. These are to be free of spoilers but insightful for potential readers.

**If you read the first book, this highly recommended sequel demonstrates significant writing improvement. First-time readers considered (free prequel) in exchange for reviews on both novels.

Beschrijving: The world choked under the suffocating grip of magic. Witches, Wizards, and Magicians used their powers to enslave humanity and enforce their wicked rule. On more than one occasion, Ibrahim, a legendary magician, challenged the world order. Having brought an end to this, Ibrahim collapsed into an exertion-induced, magic coma. Ibrahim wakes to find humanity has taken the opportunity and filled the power vacuum with a militarized tyrant. He regroups with his best friend, a human named Wino, to find out that he's adjusted to this new world and that magicians have been rendered, second-class citizens. Once again, Ibrahim must challenge the world order. This time, however, he must rescue the former persecutors, but will it be worth it?

Alaska Sourdough, Revised Edition door Ruth Allman (West Margin Press/Alaska Northwest Books)

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door WestMarginPress (uitgever): Enter to win a copy of Alaska Sourdough, a classic cookbook! Offered by the publisher; requesting reviews to be posted on LibraryThing, Goodreads, Amazon, etc.

Beschrijving: A perennial best seller that’s been in print for over 50 years, Alaska Sourdough—part valuable historical reference and part kitschy souvenir—now offers more than 95 recipes with even more interesting facts and Alaskan lore for sourdough fans.

Written by one of Alaska’s most foremost sourdough historians, Alaska Sourdough is a witty and useful primer for sourdough cookery. For decades Alaskans have ordered their lives around their sourdough pots, and Ruth Allman was no different. In this book she shares her own time-tested advice for home cooks and novice bakers, as well as little-known facts and history about sourdough.

Sourdough was a staple in pioneer-era Alaska and without it, folks would not survive. Alaska Sourdough features two types of starters and discusses the nuances of time on the starter that only a pioneer can know. The book then walks the reader through how to keep sourdough alive and the dozens of things that can be made from it—from hotcakes and waffles, to breads, rolls, muffins, and coffee cakes. But what was once utilitarian may seem peculiar today—sourdough baked Alaska? It was the only way to make such novelty desserts in pioneer time, and Ruth’s writing offers a charming glimpse back to another era. You’ll want to try some of her favorite recipes for such delights as sourdough cakes, doughnuts, cookies, and dumplings, along with accompanying sauces, syrups, and toppings.

With an all-new foreword by writer and food journalist Addie Studebaker, this new edition transports you back into a nostalgic Alaskan world filled with comfort, love, fun, and, of course, sourdough.

Where the Light Fell door Philip Yancey (Convergent Books)

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door SierraMoon1 (uitgever): Convergent Books, an imprint of Random House, is giving away 10 early copies of WHERE THE LIGHT FELL by Philip Yancey ahead of the book's publication in October. We would love to get early reads for this book and build early buzz into the Fall.

Beschrijving: In this searing meditation on the bonds of family and the danger of extremist faith, one of today’s most celebrated Christian writers recounts his strict fundamentalist upbringing and his unexpected journey to a life of compassion and grace—a revelatory memoir in the tradition of Educated and Hillbilly Elegy.

Raised by an impoverished widow who earned room and board as a Bible teacher in 1950s Atlanta, Philip Yancey and his brother, Marshall, found ways to venture out beyond the confines of their eight-foot-wide trailer. But when Yancey was in college, he uncovered a shocking secret about his father's death—a secret that began to illuminate the motivations that drove his mother to extreme, often hostile religious convictions and a belief that her sons had been ordained for a divine cause.
Searching for answers, Yancey dives into his family origins, taking us on an evocative journey from the backwoods of the Bible Belt to the bustling streets of Philadelphia; from trailer parks to church sanctuaries; from family oddballs to fire-and-brimstone preachers and childhood awakenings through nature, music, and literature. In time, the weight of religious and family pressure sent both sons on opposite journeys—one toward healing from the impact of what he calls a "toxic faith"; the other into a self-destructive spiral.
Where the Light Fell is a gripping family narrative set against a turbulent time in post-World War II America, shaped by the collision of Southern fundamentalism and the mounting pressures of the civil rights movement and sixties-era forces of social change. In piecing together his fragmented personal history and his journey to redemption, Yancey gives testament to the enduring power of our search for truth and the possibility of faith rooted in grace instead of fear.

I Jonathan, A Charleston Tale of the Rebellion door George WB Scott (Southern Rocket and Fountain City Publishing)

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door GeorgeScott (auteur): Free to readers willing to write a review, either on GoodReads or Amazon or both. We released this during the pandemic and weren't able to promote it in person. We are gearing up for an author tour later in 2021 and would like more reviews.

Send me your mailing address and I will mail you a copy. My email:
gwbscott@gmail.com

Beschrijving: A young stranger from Boston is marooned in Charleston just as the Civil War begins. His relationships with working men and women, slaves, merchants, planters, spies, inventors, soldiers, sweethearts and musicians tell the story of a dynamic culture undergoing its greatest challenge.

"I wanted to tell a personal story built on the framework of history," says author George WB Scott, "and the real story is Charleston's challenges and experience in the war. The book is pro-South, but not pro-Confederate. It's anti-war and anti-slavery. I wanted to go beyond stock characters and themes. I hope this encourages readers to reflect on a people who lived through a fundamental change of their society."

Jonathan's adventures include witnessing the bombardment of Fort Sumter, the last great Charleston horse race, the Great Charleston Fire of 1861, the Battle of Secessionville and visits to the North Carolina mountain homes of wealthy Low Country planters. He even has an encounter with a Voo-Doo conjure man. He makes a run through the Federal Blockade and visits the raucous boomtowns of Nassau and Wilmington. The author describes battles of ironclads and monitors, and the Battle of Battery Wagner (made famous in the movie "Glory"). Jonathan’s story documents the hopes and struggles of a young man making a new life in a strange land in times of war and change.

The book has no graphic sex scenes and contains some middling graphic battlefield scenes, nothing extreme.

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door WorthyKids (uitgever): We're giving away 10 copies of 30,000 Stitches by Amanda Davis!

Beschrijving: Discover the inspiring story of the American flag that flew over Ground Zero, traveled across all fifty states as it was repaired, and returned to New York as a restored symbol of unity.
In the days following September 11th, a 30-foot American flag hung torn and tattered at 90 West Street, across from Ground Zero. A few weeks later, the flag was taken down by a construction crew and tucked away in storage, where it stayed for nearly seven years.

The flag was brought out of storage in 2008 when the New York Says Thank You Foundation headed to Greensburg, Kansas, a town nearly destroyed by a tornado. NYSTY brought the flag with them, sparking a grassroots restoration effort that traveled over 120,000 miles across all fifty states, bringing together thousands of people, and helping America heal and rebuild . . . hand by hand, thread by thread, one stitch at a time.

This book is the story of that journey, a journey that ended at the opening of the National September 11 Museum, where the flag remains today. Along the way, the flag was restored using pieces of retired flags from every state—including a piece of the flag that Abraham Lincoln was laid on after he was shot at Ford's Theater and threads from the original Star-Spangled Banner flag, which flew at Fort McHenry in the War of 1812 and inspired Francis Scott Key to write the national anthem. The pieces and threads were stitched in by military veterans, first responders, educators, students, community-service heroes, and family members of 9/11 victims, among others. At each stop, communities came together to remember, to heal, and to unite.

Hello From Here door Pamela Kennedy (WorthyKids)

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door WorthyKids (uitgever): We're giving away 10 copies of Hello From Here!

Beschrijving: Show the little ones in your life that distance and separation can't stop us from sharing a special hello with those we love.

It's difficult to be separated from those we love, and sometimes it's hard to feel connected when we can't be together in person.

This board book helps fill that need to connect, with a simple message: I'm still here, even though I'm not right there beside you. A series of scenarios depicts a narrator employing various forms of communication—from video calls and letters to dolphin-messengers and skywriting—to say a simple "hello" to someone far away.

Exploring the idea of connecting over distance, whether it's through a pane of glass or across a continent, this book delivers its earnest message in a lighthearted way, engaging children's imaginations in thinking of delightful new ways to say "hello." The book will remind them that they are loved by those they can't always see. Instead of emphasizing what we can't do when we're apart, this book takes a positive view and makes a game out of finding new ways we can communicate.

Reassuring and imaginative, this board book fills a growing need to reach out and connect with one another.

The Road to Vermilion Lake door Vic Cavalli (Harvard Square Editions)

Dit boek is een elektronisch boek, geen fysiek boek.

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door VicCavalli (auteur): If you are interested in literary fiction, request an eBook copy of The Road to Vermilion Lake. The author will send MOBI and PDF files directly to the winners selected by LibraryThing.

Beschrijving: “The novel tells the story of . . . Thomas Neal Tems, a blaster’s assistant and first-aid attendant who lives and works on a construction site beside a glorious, remote lake. The site is being developed by a Swiss company into an ecologically friendly village, and Thomas begins a romance with the talented and imaginative architect who designed the site, a devout Catholic. The world that the characters must navigate, however, is decidedly not a romantic one. It is marked by painful past experiences, dysfunctional families, tragic accidents, alcoholism, and drug overdoses, all of which seem to derive from an inability to reach beyond the superficiality of existence. And yet, this is a world of second chances, for those who desire to change their imaginative perspective, to seek a sense of depth and enchantment that is deeply embedded in the tangible world, particularly in the body and in the natural world, as well as in the creative world of contemplative thought.”

Your Soul' Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born door Robert Schwartz (Whispering Winds Press)

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door CourageousSouls (auteur): I am both the author and publisher. I am giving away copies in return for reviews.

Beschrijving: In his groundbreaking first book, Your Soul's Plan, Robert Schwartz brought the idea of pre-birth planning into the mainstream. Now, his brilliant sequel Your Soul's Gift delves even deeper by exploring the pre-birth planning of spiritual awakening, miscarriage and abortion, caregiving, abusive relationships, sexuality, incest, adoption, poverty, suicide, rape, and mental illness. Working with a team of gifted mediums, Schwartz brings forth great love and wisdom from the other side to explain why such experiences are planned and the deep, soul-level healing they can create.

Through the stories in Your Soul s Gift you can:

-Develop greater self-love as you become aware of the tremendous courage it takes for you to plan a life on Earth and to live the life you planned

-Emerge from victim consciousness to know yourself as the powerful creator of your life

-Forgive those who have hurt you and create a lasting inner peace

-Understand the qualities you came into this lifetime to cultivate and express

-See profound purpose in experiences that once appeared to be meaningless suffering

-Develop a heartfelt knowing of your infinite worth, beauty, magnificence, and sacredness as an eternal soul.

Review
"This book is an incredible guide map to your soul and the various jewels stored inside it. Read this to reconnect with your TRUE SELF".
—James Van Praagh, author of Growing Up in Heaven

"Robert Schwartz offers deep wisdom into the nature of our soul and the purpose of our lives. He explains life and karma with clarity and elegance."
—Arielle Ford, author of The Soulmate Secret

"I was deeply impressed by Your Soul's Gift. This is a fine discussion of one of the great mysteries of existence: To what degree do we plan our lives before we are born? Robert Schwartz offers a profound spiritual analysis of some of life s most difficult crises and turning points. This book is well worth reading for its novel and surprising insights into the difficulties most of us face in life."
—Raymond Moody, MD, PhD, author of Life After Life
About the Author
In a personal session with a medium in 2003, author Robert Schwartz was astonished to speak with nonphysical beings who knew everything about him - not just what he had done in life, but also what he had thought and felt. They told him that he had planned many of his most difficult experiences before he was born. Realizing that a knowledge of pre-birth planning would bring great healing to people and allow them to understand the deeper purpose of their life challenges, he decided to devote his life to the study of pre-birth planning. The extraordinary insights that have emerged from his work speak to our heartfelt, universal yearning to know . . . why.

Robert Schwartz is a certified hypnotherapist who offers spiritual guidance and hypnotherapeutic regressions to help people understand their life plan. For more information please visit him online at www.yoursoulsplan.com.

The Wife Who Wasn't door Alta Ifland (New Europe Books)

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door Ifland (auteur): The publisher will give away five galleys (they look like the "real" book and are printed on high-quality paper).

My request is that the winners write informed reviews--by which I mean that they contextualize the novel as inspired by Eastern European cultures and literatures.

ISBN-13: 9781734537918

Beschrijving: The Wife Who Wasn’t brings together an eccentric community from the hills of Santa Barbara, California, and a family of unbound Russians from Chisinau/Kishinev, the capital of Moldova. The novel starts in the late nineties, after the fall of Communism, and has at its center the “arranged” (via a matrimonial agency) marriage between a California man (Sammy) and a Russian woman (Tania) who comes to America and engenders a series of hilarious cultural misunderstandings.

The novel’s four parts take place alternately in California and Moldova, and are written in short chapters whose point of view moves between the Moldovans and the Californians (the Moldovans are seen from the perspective of the Americans, and vice-versa). This shift allows the reader to perceive both realities—late 90s California and Moldova—from opposite points of view.

And It Will Be A Beautiful Life door Craig Lancaster (The Story Plant)

Dit boek is een elektronisch boek, geen fysiek boek.

De ontvanger wordt verzocht een recensie te plaatsen in ruil voor dit boek.

Aangeboden door TheStoryplant (uitgever): Craig Lancaster is the author of nine novels, including the bestselling Edward series (600 Hours of Edward, Edward Adrift, and Edward Unspooled), as well as a collection of short stories. 600 Hours of Edward, his debut, was a Montana Honor Book and the 2010 High Plains Book Award winner for best first book.

Lancaster lives in Billings, Montana, with his wife, author Elisa Lorello, a dog named Fretless, and a cat named Spatz.

Beschrijving: Max Wendt has a family . . . but it's sliding sideways, and he has been complicit in its faltering. His wife and his daughter have pulled away from him amid his frequent absences, leaving him to bridge the distance between what he remembers and the way things are now.

Max Wendt has a job . . . but it carries him away from home most of the time, and its dynamics are quickly changing. There's a surprising new hire on his pipeline crew, strife among coworkers, and a boss whose proclivities put everything in peril.

Max Wendt has a friend . . . but this odd man Max meets during his travels perplexes him, prods him, pushes him, and annoys him. He sees something in Max that Max can't see in himself, and he's holding tight to his own pain.

Max Wendt has a problem . . . More than one, in fact, and those problems are flying at him with increasing velocity. Can someone who has spent his life going with the flow arrest his own destructive inertia, rebuild his relationships, and find a better way?
