Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In Michael Hiebert’s haunting and powerful novel, a long-ago tragedy echoes through small-town Alabama as one woman tries to track down a serial killer. Detective Leah Teal is privy to most of the secrets in her hometown of Alvin, but there are always surprises to be had. Like the day she agrees to take her daughter, Caroline, to see a psychic for a reading. The psychic hones in on Leah instead, hinting at a string of gruesome killings and insisting that she intervene to prevent more deaths. When you go looking for trouble, you never know how much you’ll find. Sure enough, the psychic’s scant clues lead Leah to a cold case from six years ago, when a young woman was found shot to death, her eyelids sewn shut. As Leah digs deeper into old files, a second unsolved case surfaces with the same grisly pattern. While her shrewd young son, Abe, observes from the sidelines, Leah races to prevent another horrific murder, unaware of just how deep the roots of evil can go. Taut, suspenseful, and rich in Southern atmosphere, A Thorn Among the Lilies is a mesmerizing novel of loss and vengeance, and the lengths some will go to out of loyalty and love.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A 1980s small town Alabama shut-in fears for her life after a killer’s release in this crime thriller by the author of Dream with Little Angels. At twenty-two, Sylvie Carson has known a lifetime’s worth of trouble. When she was a child, her baby brother was shot to death by a man named Preacher Eli. Orphaned by her teens, Sylvie is now raising her own baby with no partner in sight. For all these reasons, Leah Teal, Alvin, Alabama’s only detective, tries to stay patient when Sylvie calls the station day and night, always with some new false alarm. But now Preacher Eli is out of prison and moving back to town. As far as the law is concerned—the old man has paid his dues—though Leah’s twelve-year-old son, Abe, vehemently disagrees. Between that and his relentless curiosity about the daddy he hardly knew, Abe's imagination is running in all directions lately. While Leah struggles with how much of the past to reveal to Abe, she’s also concerned about Sylvie’s mounting panic. Something in her gut tells her the girl might be a target after all. For as Leah knows well, there’s danger not just in the secrets others keep from us, but in the lies that corrupt from within. It's a hunch that will be tested soon enough, as tensions mount on both sides. Evoking the South with depth and grace, Michael Hiebert’s poignant, gripping novel captures the strength wrought by heartache and lost innocence—and the transformative power of forgiveness, whenever it comes . . . Praise for Dream with Little Angels “Hiebert’s first novel courts comparison to the classic To Kill a Mockingbird, but the book manages to soar as a moving achievement in its own right. In Hiebert’s hands, psychological insight and restrained lyricism combine to create a coming-of-age tale as devastating as it is indelible.” —Publis

Book excerpt: "There's something mesmerizing about Hiebert's storytelling voice." --The New York Times Book Review A case from the past sparks a nightmare for Detective Leah Teal in Michael Hiebert’s masterful new novel of suspense. Fifteen years ago, a serial killer tagged by the media as the Stickman spread terror throughout Alabama and became Alvin detective Joe Fowler’s obsession. After fifteen months and nine victims, Harry Stork was identified as the Stickman and Fowler shot him dead. The killings stopped. For a while. Now, more bodies are turning up, each staked through the chest with a stick-figure drawing in the killer’s signature style. Detective Leah Teal—Joe Fowler’s daughter and Alvin’s sole detective—receives a letter before each victim is found, just like her late father did. The only people who knew about the letters were the cops on the taskforce back then—and the killer himself. Did Joe shoot the wrong man, or was one of the detectives he handpicked involved all along? As a single mother, Leah tries to balance an increasingly disturbing case and a new relationship with caring for her children—bright, perceptive Abe, and teenaged Caroline, who’s in the first flush of young love. But with each menacing communication, each gruesome discovery, Leah realizes just how personal, and how devastating, the truth may be. Weaving lyrical prose and emotional richness into a taut, gripping mystery, Michael Hiebert creates a fascinating novel of life, love, and death in a small Southern town.

Download or read book The Little Angel and the Three Wisdoms written by Catherine Farrar and published by Strategic Book Publishing. This book was released on 2013-05-01 with total page 66 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The story The Little Angel and the Three Wisdoms begins in heaven and travels to earth, ending up back in heaven. Follow the adventures of a nervous young trainee angel, conscientious but fallible, as he travels to earth to shadow Three Wisdoms (the three dimensions of the girl Sophia). But before he can get back to heaven, he misplaces his trumpet. Everything starts with a recapitulation of the creation of the universe by a very bored God. You see, God has got nothing better to do because He has seen it all. God loves music, especially Bach and Mozart's piano concerto slow movements. Meanwhile, the little angel, still scared and a bit fumbling, is tussling with the love affairs of three willful and flighty girls. The angel gets back his trumpet and God sends his peace messages to humankind by email (with a bit of help from his nerds). In the end, God is quite pleased with his creation and his erring creatures as they are led astray by their dragons and their free will, saved by His forgiving love and the amazing grace of music.Catherine Farrar was born and raised in Derry and Donegal, Ireland, which will forever affect my outlook and language, not least my love of music and the music of words. For this and much else, I owe a great debt to my parents, Tom and Agnes Finnegan, to my brothers and sister who are still there, and to our wonderful three daughters, their husbands, and their children, who I hope will one day read and enjoy these stories.

Download or read book Female Monasticism in Early Modern Europe written by Cordula van Wyhe and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-03-02 with total page 302 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This volume of twelve interdisciplinary essays addresses the multifaceted nature of female religious identity in early modern Europe. By dismantling the boundaries between the academic disciplines of history, art history, musicology and literary studies it offers new cross-cultural readings essential to a more comprehensive understanding of the complexity of female spirituality in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Utilising a wide range of archival material, encompassing art, architecture, writings and music commissioned or produced by nuns, the volume's main emphasis is on the limitations and potentials created by the boundaries of the convent. Each chapter explores how the personal and national circumstances in which the women lived affected the formation of their spirituality and the assertion of their social and political authority. Consisting of four sections each dealing with different parts of Europe and discussing issues of spiritual and social identity such as 'Femininity and Sanctity', 'Convent Theatre and Music-Making', 'Spiritual Directorship' and 'Community and Conflict', this compelling collection offers a significant addition to a thriving new field of study.
