Do you secretly berate yourself over a lack of patience and compassion for your widower's heartache? Are you ashamed of your insensitivity toward the surviving loved ones? Do you go to great lengths to help facilitate the grieving process? Do you feel rejected by the children, former in-laws, or others who are not ready to see the surviving husband move on? If so, you aren't alone. Denise Medany's One Heart Too Many offers a pragmatic "take no prisoners" approach to dealing with the challenges of loving a widower. This no-nonsense guide reveals the struggle to move on and how you may be contributing to or even prolonging the problem. Each chapter offers a detailed account of actual situations experienced by different women who are in love with a widower. In her tough, uncompromising style, the author provides thought-provoking perspectives on the questions that plague many women: * Am I "Plan B"? * How can I get his children or others to accept me? * Was he happier with his late wife? * When will he stop hiding our relationship from his friends and family? * What can I do about people posting memories of the late wife on social media? * Why can't he take down her photos? * Does he miss her more than he loves me? Full of suggestions, real-life relationship scenarios, "Guidelines at a Glance," and an open letter to the widower, One Heart Too Many helps you to determine and set your boundaries, deal with difficult relationship issues, and relate to them on an entirely different level.

Winner of the National Jewish Book Award (Holocaust Category) Winner of the Canadian Historical Association John A. Macdonald Prize Featured in The Literary Review of Canada 100: Canada’s Most Important Books [This] is a story best summed up in the words of an anonymous senior Canadian official who, in the midst of a rambling, off-the-record discussion with journalists in 1945, was asked how many Jews would be allowed into Canada after the war … ‘None,’ he said, ‘is too many.’ From the Preface One of the most significant studies of Canadian history ever written, None Is Too Many conclusively lays to rest the comfortable notion that Canada has always been an accepting and welcoming society. Detailing the country’s refusal to offer aid, let alone sanctuary, to Jews fleeing Nazi persecution between 1933 and 1948, it is an immensely bleak and discomfiting story – and one that was largely unknown before the book’s publication. Irving Abella and Harold Troper’s retelling of this episode is a harrowing read not easily forgotten: its power is such that, ‘a manuscript copy helped convince Ron Atkey, Minister of Employment and Immigration in Joe Clark’s government, to grant 50,000 “boat people” asylum in Canada in 1979, during the Southeast Asian refugee crisis’ (Robin Roger, The Literary Review of Canada). None Is Too Many will undoubtedly continue to serve as a potent reminder of the fragility of tolerance, even in a country where it is held as one of our highest values.

A female warrior far beyond his rank. A human male she has loved since childhood. Tallas, a prominent officer on the desert planet of Kasara, believes that Earthling Sean Ryder wants nothing more than to return to his home after his parents are brutally murdered. She hides all her love and longing behind honor and will dutifully pilot him back to Earth--even though it might mean losing him forever. What in stars was she thinking? Why would Tallas volunteer to take Sean--the boy she loved, the man she desired--home to earth? But Sean wants nothing more to do with Kasara or those who live on Kasara. What else can she do but give him what he wants--freedom? And yet . . . their journey to Earth includes months locked together on a small space craft, a crash landing on an uncharted planet, a battle with a deadly enemy, and then, once they finally reach Sean's home planet, a compelling reunion with Sean's extended family, who welcomes her as if . . . as if they can tell Sean's in love with her. Tallas knows there's something between her and Sean--something strong, something permanent. Now all she has to do is make Sean see it before he does something stupid . . . like send her home without him.

How did the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee break open the caste system in the American South between 1960 and 1965? In this innovative study, Wesley Hogan explores what SNCC accomplished and, more important, how it fostered significant social change in such a short time. She offers new insights into the internal dynamics of SNCC as well as the workings of the larger civil rights and Black Power movement of which it was a part. As Hogan chronicles, the members of SNCC created some of the civil rights movement's boldest experiments in freedom, including the sit-ins of 1960, the rejuvenated Freedom Rides of 1961, and grassroots democracy projects in Georgia and Mississippi. She highlights several key players--including Charles Sherrod, Bob Moses, and Fannie Lou Hamer--as innovators of grassroots activism and democratic practice. Breaking new ground, Hogan shows how SNCC laid the foundation for the emergence of the New Left and created new definitions of political leadership during the civil rights and Vietnam eras. She traces the ways other social movements--such as Black Power, women's liberation, and the antiwar movement--adapted practices developed within SNCC to apply to their particular causes. Many Minds, One Heart ultimately reframes the movement and asks us to look anew at where America stands on justice and equality today.

She set examples for family and friends as she develops into a leader of integrity who teaches followers to be positive, confident, and successful. It is her belief that we as people are not isolated in our troubles and together we learn that we can overcome them all.

About the Book: Two Countries, One Heart written by R.K.P. Market and Competition: This book was written for those who enjoy reading autobiographies reading the life story of another, learning through their experiences. Also, those who are interested in how the war was experienced by a child and the adaptations necessary following an immigration. Although there are many autobiographical books, the beauty is that none are identical. Each person lives their own story and interprets events in their own way. Hence, leaving my book unique.

“You’re listening to Delilah.” Delilah, the most listened-to woman on American radio, has distinguished herself as the “Queen of Sappy Love Songs” and America’s ultimate romance guru. But Delilah’s life off-air is all the more extraordinary—a life full of trials, forgiveness, faith, and adventure. In One Heart at a Time, Delilah’s heartfelt account of her own story reveals what shaped the voice that 9 million listeners know and love. Today, Delilah is the founder of an NGO called Point Hope, the owner of a 55-acre working farm, and an inductee of the National Radio Hall of Fame. But to achieve this, she often had to pave her own way. Disowned by her father, divorced, and fired from a dozen jobs over the years, Delilah pushed forward through family addiction and devastating loss, through glass ceilings and red tape. Her consistent goal to help those in need took her everywhere from the streets of Philadelphia to refugee camps in Ghana. Along the way, Delilah was blessed by thirteen children—ten of them adopted. Though many of them contend with special needs and the forever effects of a broken foster care system, her children have been able to transform their own remarkable lessons into guiding lights for other kids in need. Just as Delilah has done. One Heart at a Time exposes the real woman behind the microphone. In her easy-going style and characteristic, beloved voice, Delilah tells her deeply moving life story as the series of miracles it is.

In His Image is the next step for those who have read The Purpose Driven Life. Following the Life Purpose of Mission, this book explores God's great love for humanity from every book of the Bible. From the creation of Genesis to the culmination in Revelation, God’s love shines through every page. Never is this ever clearer than in the times of Israel’s great betrayal of their God. His passionate pursuit of His children can be heard dripping from his voice as He calls them (and us by proxy) back to His shelter and protection. This book was written ... • To convince the reader of God’s intense and immense love for them; • To encourage the reader to reach out to the God who is passionately in love with them; • To strengthen the reader’s faith in God’s compassion; and • To motivate the reader to share the love of God with every person they meet. It is very clear God loves people of all races and ethnicities. Therefore, whenever appropriate to the passage of the day, emphasis is made on the issue of racial reconciliation around God’s love. His love becomes the motivation for evangelism and for community. In each daily devotional ... • There is a Biblical Scripture they are encouraged to read; • There is a passage of Scripture to read in the devotional itself; • There is the devotional to read which focuses the reader on a single thought, broken into two, three or four practical ideas they can utilize that day in their lives; and • There is a thought to take with the reader each day which summarizes the theme concerning God’s great love for them.

From one of the nation's preeminent experts on women and emotion, a breakthrough new book about how to stop negative thinking and become more productive It's no surprise that our fast-paced, overly self-analytical culture is pushing many people-especially women-to spend countless hours thinking about negative ideas, feelings, and experiences. Renowned psychologist Dr. Susan Nolen-Hoeksema calls this overthinking, and her groundbreaking research shows that an increasing number of women-more than half of those in her extensive study-are doing it too much and too often, hindering their ability to lead a satisfying life. Overthinking can be anything from fretting about the big questions such as "What am I doing with my life?" to losing sleep over a friend's innocent comment. It is causing many women to end up sad, anxious, or seriously depressed, and Nolen-Hoeksema challenges the assumption-heralded by so many pop-psychology pundits of the last several decades-that constantly expressing and analyzing our emotions is a good thing. In Women Who Think Too Much, Nolen-Hoeksema shows us what causes so many women to be overthinkers and provides concrete strategies that can be used to escape these negative thoughts, move to higher ground, and live more productively. Women Who Think Too Much will change lives and is destined to become a self-help classic.

Anthony Cuero, M.D., once a strong, optimistic Christian, struggles with the clash within himself. He is a young physician from the University of Miami who fell hopelessly in love with, and eventually married, Valentina Calamia, M.D. Their love and passion for each other strengthens with the passing of each day and it is believed to be attributed to a five-hundred-year-old family secret. Valentina's parents, grandparents and ancestors successfully protected the family secret within their family home, which sits on the side of Mount Etna, Sicily's most powerful and mystical domain. It is Anthony's and Valentina's turn to protect it. But, their short time together was not always blissful. Her ancestor, from over five hundred years past, who bequeathed Valentina's lineage with this extraordinary gift of love and passion, was unable to evade the envy of evil. It is an evil that manipulates Anthony away from his God of Peace and toward a god of destruction as he seeks revenge for the murder of Valentina. Anthony is ultimately plagued with one final question: In his quest to be his family's greatest ally, did he become their fiercest foe?
