    Descirption: Why does the Republican Party always seem to betray conservatives in the end? How come Leftists never worry some "squishy" moderate will win Democrat primaries, even though conservatives in the GOP are constantly fighting that battle? Why do GOP leaders typically fight the conservative base harder than they fight the Democrats? How did the Left gain control of every major cultural institution in the country? Why does the Republican Party continue to fund (alleged) political enemies, such as Planned Parenthood? Is the GOP really the "the stupid party" or something much worse?
    Deace answers these questions and more in Truth Bombs, a definitive expose on why conservativism has no future-if it remains hostage to the unibrow-party duopoly.

    English |



    Descirption: A sweeping novel about the extraordinary woman who captured Napoleon's heart, created a dynasty, and changed the course of history-from the <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">New York Times bestselling author of <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">The Traitor's Wife, The Accidental Empress, and <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">Sisi.
    As the French revolution ravages the country, Desiree Clary is faced with the life-altering truth that the world she has known and loved is gone and it's fallen on her to save her family from the guillotine.
    A chance encounter with Napoleon Bonaparte, the ambitious and charismatic young military prodigy, provides her answer. When her beloved sister Julie marries his brother Joseph, Desiree and Napoleon's futures become irrevocably linked. Quickly entering into their own passionate, dizzying courtship that leads to a secret engagement, they vow to meet in the capital once his career has been secured. But her newly laid plans with Napoleon turn to sudden heartbreak, thanks to the rising star of Parisian society, Josephine de Beauharnais. Once again, Desiree's life is turned on its head.
    Swept to the glittering halls of the French capital, Desiree is plunged into the inner circle of the new ruling class, becoming further entangled with Napoleon, his family, and the new Empress. But her fortunes shift once again when she meets Napoleon's confidant and star general, the indomitable Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte. As the two men in Desiree's life become political rivals and military foes, the question that arises is: must she choose between the love of her new husband and the love of her nation and its Emperor?
    From the lavish estates of the French Riviera to the raucous streets of Paris and Stockholm, Desiree finds herself at the epicenter of the rise and fall of an empire, navigating a constellation of political giants and dangerous, shifting alliances. Emerging from an impressionable girl into a fierce young woman, she discovers that to survive in this world she must learn to rely upon her instincts and her heart.
    Allison Pataki's meticulously researched and brilliantly imagined novel sweeps readers into the unbelievable life of a woman almost lost to history-a woman who, despite the swells of a stunning life and a tumultuous time, not only adapts and survives but, ultimately, reigns at the helm of a dynasty that outlasts an empire.

    Review
    "In The Queen's Fortune , Allison Pataki chronicles Desiree, the secret lover of Napoleon Bonaparte. When Napoleon chooses Josephine over her, the heartbroken Desiree finds herself entangled with Napoleon, Josephine and the new ruling class. Pataki deftly weaves a tangled web of passion, deception and intrigue, set against one of the most tumultuous periods in history, making for a heady cocktail which readers will devour." -Pam Jenoff, <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">New York Times bestselling author of <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">The Lost Girls of Paris
    "I absolutely loved The Queen's Fortune, the fascinating, little-known story of Desiree Clary-the woman Napoleon left for Josephine-who ultimately triumphed and became queen of Sweden." -Martha Hall Kelly, <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">New York Times bestselling author of <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">Lost Roses and <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">Lilac Girls
    "Allison Pataki is a masterful historical author at the top of her game. From the very first lyrical lines of The Queen's Fortune, I was wholly swept into the entrancing world of Desiree Clary Bernadotte. Painstaking research and page-turning prose placed me directly at the side of this remarkable yet lesser-known figure, journeying from innocent girlhood to seasoned royalty, a survivor of guillotine threats, palace politics, and strains of the heart. I absolutely loved this book from beginning to end." -Kristina McMorris, <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">New York Times bestselling author of <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">Sold on a Monday and <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">The Edge of Lost
    "It's not everyone who's jilted by Napoleon and winds up queen of Sweden. Allison Pataki provides an intimate portrait of a tumultuous time-and of an ordinary woman who captivated two of the great men of her day and became the mother of a dynasty." -Lauren Willig, <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">New York Times bestselling author of <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">The Summer Country
    "History, romance, and the dangerous intrigue of revolution combine to make coming of age a high-stakes game in Allison Pataki's richly reimagined account of a woman seeking not only to manage her circumstances but to triumph over them and rise to the throne of a country that will become her own. This was a piece of history I knew very little about. Pataki's latest effort brings a fascinating time and place fully to life." -Lisa Wingate, #1 <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">New York Times bestselling author of<span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600"> Before We Were Yours
    "Allison Pataki brings the story of Napoleon's first love, Desiree Clary, out from behind the shadow of Napoleon and Josephine's love affair. With fascinating insight into the lives of Napoleon and the Clary sisters, Pataki weaves a gripping tale of love, betrayal, and family loyalty. Desiree's story leads us from her origins as a merchant's daughter in pre-Revolutionary France through the intrigues of the Napoleonic era, and ends with her becoming the ancestress of the Swedish royal family. We can learn so much from the wonderful strong voices of women in history, finally being heard and inspiring us today. The Queen's Fortune is an enthralling tale, and one I thoroughly recommend." -Sarah, Duchess of York
    "Allison Pataki weaves a glittering spell around the mythical affair between Napoleon and Desiree. This enterprising young woman rose to the heights of glamour as Napoleon carved his path to power. Pataki imbues their fateful story with the yearning of a country reeling in the aftermath of a savage war and with the fierce heart of an ambitious girl who must survive at any cost." -C. W. Gortner, bestselling author of <span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: 600">The Romanov Empress

    Descirption: When John Montagu, the fourth Duke of Sandwich, got the brilliant idea of putting slices of cold meat between two pieces of bread, he not only invented the first, really modern meal - he created a global obsession. Today there are variations of the portable, cheap (but, above all, good) sandwich in most cultures and it is about time a book appeared that takes the subject seriously. In more than 90 recipes, you learn such skills as how to make perfect versions of classics such as the Club Sandwich, Reuben and BLT, and you get to know a bit more about exotic sandwiches such as Mufflettas, Tortas, Po'boys and Banh mis.

Tristan has been promoted to Master Rider, but he has very different ideas about the best way to protect their people than his father, the commander.

    English |



    Descirption: "
    Everyone has questions. Young children ask "why?" Teenagers ask "why not?" Adults sometimes lament "what if?" The God who created us and who loves us has given us the answers to life's most pressing questions in His Word. Yet many people have no idea that God has the answers and has made them available in the Bible. Whether it is a question about where we will spend eternity or how to deal with the pain of a broken relationship, you can be sure it has been asked and answered already on .GotQuestions.org, the source for this book.
    Sadly, many individuals and ministries who offer advice are not biblically and theologically solid. That's why Got Questions? is crucially needed-a resource that answers questions explicitly from a biblical perspective, with solid evangelical theology.
    Written in an easy-to-understand format and organized in easy-to-follow sections, Got Questions? will help readers find the answers to the most frequently asked questions regarding spiritual matters. The questions were asked by real people struggling through real-life issues who received solid, practical answers from the Bible. The articles in this volume are compiled from the more than 3,800 frequently-asked questions on our website, which are read over 7 million times each month. Some of the articles have been translated into 150 languages.
    Many books present teaching in a question-and-answer format, but few have delved into the questions that people are actually asking. Having received and answered more than 380,000 questions, Got Questions Ministries has a unique understanding of what questions are truly on people's minds.

    S. Michael Houdmann is the President and Founder of Got Questions Ministries, the parent ministry for .GotQuestions.org, one of the most frequently visited Christian websites in the world.

    Descirption: The Samurai Mind is a collection of five seminal Japanese texts that convey the essence of traditional samurai philosophy and ethic from very different, but complementary points of view.
    These texts range from the ferocious to the esoteric-with their common thread being the importance of mastering one's own mind as the key to overcoming opponents. Written from the mid-18th to early 19th century, the authors were acknowledged master samurai warriors keen to address a broader audience beyond their circle of students and acolytes. Their aim was to explain their craft to the outside world, and they do so with great insight.
    The five classic Japanese texts are:The Mysterious Skills of the Old CatSword TheoryA Treatise on the SwordJoseishi's Discussions on the SwordIgnorance in Swordsmanship Four of the five texts presented here are translated into English for the first time making The Samurai...

    Descirption: In Dharma Delight, abstract artist and Zen practitioner Rodney Greenblat uses lighthearted narrative and vivid pop art paintings to celebrate the joys of living life from the inside out.
    Part graphic guide, part personal testimony, part art book, Dharma Delight illustrates how seeking the path of compassion and acceptance can be as zany and exuberant as it is profound. It is a happy exploration of Buddhist Enlightenment-what it is, where to seek it-and how to recognize the perfection in ourselves. A great option for Zen beginners, sutras (teachings), Bodhisattvas (enlightened beings) and jataka tales (parables) are presented in a way that's simple, upbeat and fun to read.
    The original paintings-some new, some already known on the New York art scene and elsewhere-are an imaginative and affirming mind's-eye view of Buddhist teaching. Together, the words and illustrations are a warm and cheerful invitation to newcomers and a cool...

    London, 2010: Icelandic volcanoes have the city in gridlock, banks topple like dominoes and Brandon Kussgarten has been shot dead by gunmen in Donald Duck masks. His death dra his twin brother - shy, bookish Adam - into Brandon's underworld of deceit and desire.
    A miniature kingdom sprouts in a Notting Hill tower-block, LA mansions burn in week-long parties, and in a Baroque hotel suite a record is being made that could redeem its maker even as it destroys him. As Adam begins to fall for his brother's shattered family he finds that to win them for himself he'll have to lose everything that he holds dear.
    This intelligent, intriguing and emotionally-searing tale of fractured identities, narcissism and ambition questions how being loved for what others think we are differs from who we are to ourselves.

    Viet Nam, 1963. A female Viet Cong assassin is trawling the boulevards of Saigon, catching US Army officers off-guard with a single pistol shot, then riding off on the back of a scooter. Although the US military is not officially in combat, sixteen thousand American servicemen are stationed in Viet Nam "advising" the military and government. Among them are Ellsworth Miser and Clovis Robeson, two army investigators who have been tasked with tracking down the daring killer.

    Questions about Salvation The 100 Most Frequently Asked Questions about Salvation
    Type : epub |
    Size : 236.72 KB |
    English |



    Descirption: Salvation is the rich and rewarding theme of Scripture. From beginning to end, we see a God who seeks the lost in order to forgive their sins and restore their fellohip.
    According to 1 Peter 1:10, Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care. We should want to know more about it too. There is nothing more important than our response to God's grace. Near the end of his life, hymn writer John Newton said, My memory is nearly gone; but I remember two things: that I am a great sinner and that Christ is a great Savior.
    It is, in fact, vital to have a biblical understanding of salvation. Questions such as Who can be saved?, What is the gospel?, and Why did Jesus have to die? are of primary importance. Fortunately, the Bible answers these questions and many more. This book takes one hundred questions about salvation and addresses them with God's Own Word. The Lord, the Author of salvation, came to seek and to save what was lost (Luke 19:10), and He is the focal point of these answers.

    Descirption: A woman murdered
    A crime unsolved
    A mystery that has lasted a century
    The brutal murder of wealthy spinster Miss Jean Milne a hundred years ago shocked the country to its core. But for a century, the case has gone unsolved. Why was she tied up, tortured and brutally murdered? And who could have committed such a heinous crime?
    To all appearances, Miss Jean Milne was the model of respectability, living a quiet life alone in her seaside mansion. But behind the fašade, she had a secret life, her frequent trips to London masking a very different lifestyle. Now, using newly released evidence from police files and eyewitness testimony hidden for a century, Andrew Nicoll has brought the case back from the dead to reveal what really happened.

    It's a shocking tale of class division, money, sex, lies, betrayal and murder. And, at last, after a hundred years, the curious death of Miss Jean Milne may finally have found a solution.

As Lyra finds her way back to her identity, an imposter princess prepares to steal her betrothed prince and her crown. To win back her kingdom, save the prince, and make peace with the land of the night, Lyra must be loud enough to be heard without a voice, and strong enough to pass a series of tests-ultimately proving she's everything a traditional princess is not.

    Descirption: Peter is quick, daring, and full of mischief-and like all boys, he loves to play, though his games often end in blood. His eyes are sparkling gold, and when he graces you with his smile you are his friend for life, but his promised land is not Neverland. Fourteen-year-old Nick would have been murdered by the drug dealers preying on his family had Peter not saved him. Now the irresistibly charismatic wild boy wants Nick to follow him to a secret place of great adventure, where magic is alive and you never grow old. Even though he is wary of Peter's crazy talk of faeries and monsters, Nick agrees. After all, New York City is no longer safe for him, and what more could he possibly lose?
    There is always more to lose.
    Accompanying Peter to a gray and ravished island that was once a lush, enchanted paradise, Nick finds himself unwittingly recruited for a war that has raged for centuries-one where he must learn to fight or die among the "Devils," Peter's savage tribe of lost and stolen children.
    There, Peter's dark past is revealed: left to wolves as an infant, despised and hunted, Peter moves restlessly between the worlds of faerie and man. The Child Thief is a leader of bloodthirsty children, a brave friend, and a creature driven to do whatever he must to stop the "Flesh-eaters" and save the last, wild magic in this dying land.
