Tale-telling is important to all Beldi women, and the book examines its role in their shared world and its significance in the lives of the three tellers.

Tunis has a long history of city life reaching back to ancient times. The Arabic language is firmly rooted among its inhabitants and most embrace the morals and culture of Islam. Behind Closed Doors presents forty-seven tales told by three Beldi women, members of a historic and highly civilized community, the city's traditional elite. Tale-telling is important to all Beldi women, and the book examines its role in their shared world and its significance in the lives of the three tellers. Tales are told at communal gatherings to share and pass on Beldi women's secret lore of love, marriage and destiny. Ghaya Sa'diyya and Kheira tell stories which echo their life experience and have deep meanings for them. Their tales reflect accepted moral codes, and yet many depict attitudes, relationships, and practices that contradict established norms. Whereas Kheira presents a conservative and moralistic view of the role of women, Sa'diyya's heroines are alive with sexual energy, and Ghaya's stories also offer racy and rebellious comments on a woman's lot. These contradictory visions offer a kaleidoscopic view of the position of women in the rich life of a historic North African city.

Doors that say KEEP OUT and doors that invite you in. Countless thousands of them - all have their own reasons to be there and their own secrets to conceal. The authors responded to the call for contributions with an incredible collection of murder and mayhem, of bitterness and depravity and just about every other human emotion there is.

Every Move You Make. . . Surveillance expert Seth Mackey knows everything about the women that his millionaire boss toys with--and tosses aside. Raine Cameron is something different. Night after night, Seth watches her on a dozen different video screens. Her vulnerable beauty haunts him and her fresh innocence stirs a white-hot passion that he can barely control. Raine is pure temptation, but Seth has something more important to take care of first. He's convinced that his boss, Victor Lazar, is responsible for his half-brother's murder. He cannot put his secret investigation at risk, but he can't stop wanting her--craving her--and soon he knows he can't let Victor have her. For Raine may be Victor's next victim. . . Every Breath You Take Raine knows she's being watched--but no one can see the secrets in her heart. She has reasons of her own to seek revenge on Victor Lazar, and she will, despite her fear--and the distracting presence of Seth Mackey. Though Raine has little experience with men, Seth's fiercely masculine good looks and animal sensuality stir her most erotic fantasies when she's along. . .and lead her to a bold plan. Offering her body to him, surrendering totally to his ruthless desire might well push her beyond all emotional limits--and beyond fear itself.

Behind Closed Doors A fascinating account of the challenges, failures, and triumphs of three men and one woman, beginning in high school seminary days. Set against the backdrop of today's turbulent conflicts over celibacy, challenges to authority, sexual revolution, and church politics, the fictional memoirs, Behind Closed Doors, follows the lives principally of engaging characters through youth and beyond in the San Francisco Bay Area and in worldwide intrigue. Ladd Franklin is enamored of Willow Caprice, a classmate's sister, with whom he strikes up a controversial friendship in the seminary and during his priesthood. Ladd enters the field of international relief services. This assignment brings him into critical episodes on several continents. Eventually, he contends with Soviet Union officials and is present in St. Peter's Square at the time of the assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II. David Carmichael is ambitious, looking forward to advancing his career, interacting with his two colleagues throughout these episodes. David is continually opposed by members of GOD (Guardians of Doctrine). The third major protagonist is Tyler Stone, sensitive and caring, who finds the demands of celibacy particularly burdensome. In the course of his priesthood, Tyler is accused of sexual molestation and is brought to trial. The novel dramatically explores the turmoil convulsing the Church and the world in the new millennium. "Behind Closed Doors makes for very interesting reading. I hope the author writes more." --John R. Quinn, archbishop emeritus of San Francisco and author of Ever Ancient, Ever New: Structures of Communion in the Church

This book shares how you can recover from abuse by those you trusted within the church. It speaks to those who are wounded and feel they have no one to turn to for help. It also speaks to those that have been the cause of deep wounds inflected on the people of God. Behind Closed Doors was inspired by God through the pain of one of his daughters. She has been given the assignment to tear down the devils kingdom through prayer and exposure. I say to each of you take your rightful place in the kingdom. You are a citizen of the kingdom of God and with your citizenship you have certain rights. It is time to walk in the authority that has been given to you by the king.

Ten stories of impoverished Sicilian women in the early 20th century—“honed, polished, devastatingly direct . . . verismo at its unsentimental best” (Kirkus Reviews). The Sicilian writer Maria Messina’s captivating and brutal stories of the women of her home island are presented in a “lyrical and immediate” English translation by Elise Magistro (Publishers Weekly). Messina, who died in 1944, was the foremost female practitioner of verismo—the Italian literary realism pioneered by fellow Sicilian Giovanni Verga. Published between 1908 and 1928, Messina’s fiction represents the massive Sicilian immigration to America occurring at that time. The individuals in these stories are caught between the traditions they respect and a desire to move beyond them. Women are shuttered in their houses, virtual servants to their families, left behind while working men immigrate to the United States in fortune-seeking droves. A cultural album that captures the lives of peasant, working-class, and middle-class women, “Messina’s words will leave their mark. Their power makes them impossible to forget” (The Philadelphia Inquirer).
