Summary:

Did photography replace an absence in her life or expose the truth of her heart’s emptiness? While growing in confidence as a photographer, eighteen-year-old Jessie Ann Gaebele’s personal life is at a crossroads. Hoping she’s put an unfortunate romantic longing behind her as “water under the bridge,” she exiles herself to Milwaukee to operate photographic studios for those owners who have fallen ill with mercury poisoning. Jessie gains footing in her dream to one day operate her own studio and soon finds herself in other Midwest towns, pursuing her profession. But even a job she loves can’t keep painful memories from seeping into her heart when the shadows of a forbidden love threaten to darken the portrait of her life.

Summary:

In Clarity of Absence, Rajah E. Smart uses his unique, conversational approach with his characters to address the purpose of life. Jon and Simone have a seemingly perfect life: Jon is a successful school administrator, and Simone, is employed as a human resources director within the same district. Jon, a purist at heart, and Simone, a woman with her own mind, see the world differently, but love one another deeply regardless of their differences. Their love is challenged when Simone discovers her inability to have children. The trauma forces her into a state of depression where she shuts Jon out completely. Their relationship becomes distant. Months later, and at his end, Jon has finally reached a crossroad. On his way to the career he thought he wanted, Jon disappears and begins a new life without Simone. The fundamental question he kept asking himself before leaving is: Do I have everything I need or everything I want? Simone is left alone to ponder his reasons for leaving. Set in Flint, Michigan, Clarity of Absence takes on the foundations of a relationship: communication, trust, unselfishness, and friendship. The story shows the struggle of two characters that aren't sure whether the life chosen was appropriate.

Summary:

Is it possible to bridge that gap that often painfully exists between Sunday's preaching and the realities of work, relationships, and simply being human? These stories arise from the acknowledgment of that costly struggle and a determination to find relevant, authentic faith. They explore Biblical events and characters from new perspectives and give voices to onlookers and participants to show that they were, as we are, wrestling with questions of suffering and doubt, rejection and reconciliation. Storytelling leads us into the possibilities of imagination and empathy, of truths felt more deeply than doctrine, and reminds us of a God who created memorable characters, told unforgettable stories, and chose to be part of the story of humanity. Here contemporaries meet. Observers react. Women and men, met fleetingly in the Gospel narratives, gain context and have a past and future beyond that encounter. As each story unfolds, there is the potential for recognition: for the characters, as they encounter one another, and for ourselves to see what may have been familiar in fresh, perhaps startling, ways.

Summary:

The Indian Buddhist philosopher Vasubandhu (fourth–fifth century C.E.) is known for his critical contribution to Buddhist Abhidharma thought, his turn to the Mahayana tradition, and his concise, influential Yogacara–Vijñanavada texts. Paving the Great Way reveals another dimension of his legacy: his integration of several seemingly incompatible intellectual and scriptural traditions, with far-ranging consequences for the development of Buddhist epistemology and the theorization of tantra. Most scholars read Vasubandhu's texts in isolation and separate his intellectual development into distinct phases. Featuring close studies of Vasubandhu's Abhidharmakosabhasya, Vyakhyayukti, Vimsatika, and Trisvabhavanirdesa, among other works, this book identifies recurrent treatments of causality and scriptural interpretation that unify distinct strands of thought under a single, coherent Buddhist philosophy. In Vasubandhu's hands, the Buddha's rejection of the self as a false construction provides a framework through which to clarify problematic philosophical issues, such as the nature of moral agency and subjectivity under a broadly causal worldview. Recognizing this continuity of purpose across Vasubandhu's diverse corpus recasts the interests of the philosopher and his truly innovative vision, which influenced Buddhist thought for a millennium and continues to resonate with today's philosophical issues. An appendix includes extensive English-language translations of the major texts discussed.

Summary:

This book is written as a motivation to elevate the broken hearts to the Living God, and to remind us of who we are in Christ when we are faced with stage of emptiness in our lives, and to remind us also of what God has installed for us through Christ as his beloved ones. The book speaks about the positive power of obedience when one is faced with nothing, or emptiness in life, the negative influence power of depending on experience as a child of God. This book is written to remind us that emptiness is not a limitation to God, and neither can we be limited to the power of this dark force because of the presence of God in us & with us, but only if we learn to embrace the power of obedience. The book contains ten (10) reasons that proves that God does really cares for us, more than we have even ever thought about; it explains the meaning of the cross of Christ for our lives- why did Jesus had to die for us, and explains the meaning why it is important “to know God”. This book is written to remind us that “A desperate mind, is a defeated mind” and “he who rejects a good advice, rejects the right direction;” and “unless you learn to obey, you will never know the truthfulness & faithfulness of God in your life”

Summary:

From the private papers of Mark Twain and Mozart to those of Robert Browning and Nelson, Love Letters of Great Men collects together some of the most romantic letters in history. For some of these great men, love is a ‘delicious poison’ (William Congreve); for others, ‘a nice soft wife on a sofa with good fire, & books & music’ (Charles Darwin). Love can scorch like the heat of the sun (Henry VIII), or penetrate the depths of one’s heart like a cooling rain (Flaubert). Every shade of love is here, from the exquisite eloquence of Oscar Wilde and the simple devotion of Robert Browning, to the wonderfully modern misery of the Roman Pliny the Younger, losing himself in work to forget how much he misses his beloved wife, Calpurnia. Taken together, these Love Letters of Great Men show that perhaps men haven’t changed so very much over the last 2,000 years; passion, jealousy, hope and longing are all represented here – as is the simple pleasure of sending a letter to, and receiving one from, the person you love most.

Summary:

Jane Austen's brilliant satire of the gothic novel. The most sprightly and satirical of Austen's novels, Northanger Abbey was written when the author was herself in her early twenties, and takes for its heroine seventeen-year-old Catherine Morland, a spirited young woman preoccupied with the pleasures of dressing, dancing, and reading sensational novels. But when she visits Northanger Abbey, the ancestral home of handsome Henry Tilney, Catherine's taste in books comes back to haunt her. The rambling house full of locked doors and the family's mysterious history give rise to delightfully dreadful suspicions, and finally only Catherine's sweet nature and good humor triumph over her susceptibility. A sly commentary on the power of literature as well as a cautionary tale about the perils of naïveté, Northanger Abbey is a fresh and funny tale of one young woman receiving, as Margaret Drabble reveals in her illuminating introduction, "intensive instruction in the ways of the world." With an Introduction by Margaret Drabble and an Afterword by Stephanie Laurens
