She has been pulled into a suffocating grief no amount of workaholic ardor can penetrate-until she receives a peculiar call from Washington, D.C.On the other end of the line is an old boyfriend's mother, asking Sam to do a second autopsy on her son. Eddie Donovan is officially the victim of a vicious carjacking, but under Sam's sharp eye the forensics tell a darker story. The ex-Ranger was murdered, though not for his car.Forced to confront the burning memories and feelings about yet another loved one killed brutally, Sam loses herself in the mystery contained within Donovan's old notes.

Don't ask yourself: What do I want from life? Ask yourself: What does life want from me? Millions of people have read The Secret and have put its Law of Attraction into practice, hoping to draw the things they desire into their lives. But what happens if the life of your dreams doesn't materialize? What if you need more help to fulfil your destiny? In The Deeper Secret, Annemarie Postma provides a fresh and empowering new perspective. She explains that the original blockbuster book, The Secret, is an important first step on a path that leads much further - towards the realization of our deepest dreams. We learn to discern why we want what we want, to know what it means when our desires meet resistance, to decide actively to seek our destiny, to overcome the beliefs that limit us, and to take responsibility for ourselves - rather than blaming outside forces for the things we feel we lack. This is a book that will turn our most cherished dreams into possibilities we can recognize, seize and fulfil.
In his acclaimed book God After Darwin, John Haught argued that religious belief is wholly compatible with evolutionary biology. Now, in Deeper Than Darwin, he advances his argument further by saying that religious belief is even more revealing about life than Darwinism. Haught looks hard at the question of how, after Darwin, religions may plausibly claim to be bearers of truth and not just of meaning and adaptive consolation. While he assumes the fundamental correctness of evolutionary biology, he firmly rejects the non-scientific belief that evolutionary biology amounts to an adequate explanation of living phenomena. Even though Darwinism is illuminating, Haught argues, it by no means tells us everything we need to know about life, even in principle. To find the deepest, though certainly not the clearest, understandings of life and the universe, we may still profitably consult the religions of the world. Deeper Than Darwin takes up where God After Darwin left off, arguing that Darwin's vision is important and essentially correct but that we can still dig deeper in our understanding of what is going on in the life-story.
Emerald eyes wide with terror, auburn hair streaming, exquisite Kristiana Harcourt fled into the night. Her noble father lay dead. With his murderer, Edward MacHugh, in hot pursuit, she galloped wildly to freedom only to fall into the arms of a golden-eyed Gypsy. Born of a Gypsy mother, Logan Chandler, true Earl of Muircairn, wore many disguises. Committed to a desperate plan, he was amazed to find that his love for this proud beauty ran even deeper than his lust for vengeance. Safe yet reviled as an alien among his people, Kristiana's trust in her virile protector would be sorely tested. Only in the face of certain death would she discover that they shared one heart ... and be forced to betray him. Returning to Castle Muircairn -- a woman wed to two men; one beloved, one abhorred -- her hope lay in the slender chance that Logan still lived. For only he could triumph over MacHugh's black treachery ... to reclaim the land and the love that was their radiant birthright.
Spiritual teacher and bridge-builder Brother David Steindl-Rast translates the Apostles' Creed for today, uncovering the deeper universal truths that can be an inspiration to all people. In Deeper than Words: Living the Apostles' Creed, Brother David reexamines the words with which the early followers of Jesus summarized their faith. Reading line-by-line with an open perspective, he reveals the often overlooked message of trust, compassion, peace, love, and awareness contained in this widely known but rarely examined statement. Deeper than Words moves beyond ritual and exclusivity and instead finds a deeper faith based in real human experience and the sense of limitless belonging that is shared by all people who seek to understand themselves and the world. The words of the Apostles' Creed are Christian, but its heart is a universal and timeless guide to fullness of life. From this transformation perspective, developed over a lifetime of contemplation, Brother David presents a powerful call to renewal through reconnection with the spiritual and a reawakening to shared sacred truths.From the Trade Paperback edition.

The author of How to Know God provides help for healing deep trauma--whenever it arises--so we may find peace in ourselves and in our world.Terror came from the sky, and afterward the world would never be the same. September, 11, 2001, defined tragedy for a generation. On that day Deepak Chopra found himself driving from city to city, meeting thousands of people who begged for meaning and solace in the face of suffering. In response he has written The Deeper Wound, offering a way of healing as a memorial to the thousands of victims who perished.The opening section, "In the Face of Tragedy," defines suffering as the pain that threatens to make life meaningless. When our deepest needs go unfulfilled, suffering begins. We begin to heal when we go beyond personal anger and fear to a realization of our true self, the self that was never afraid and can never be wounded.The true self contains the light that no darkness can attack. Having described a path of awareness and compassion that leads to the light, the second half of The Deeper Wound takes us there through "A Hundred Days of Healing," daily affirmations, exercises, insights, lessons, and questions--each a step out of pain toward a higher reality. "We can become living memorials to tragedy by restoring the power of life," writes Deepak Chopra. "You are that life, you are that power. Let us see if we can find the spark that will make the spiritual flame spring up."Healing yourself comes in two stages--first releasing the energy of suffering, then replacing it with the soul's energy. It is a gentle and fragile path, very much like holding on to a thread as it leads you from step to step.If you take the time to listen to the voice of silence, you will be astonished at the power you have at your command, however long that power has been overlooked.A portion of the proceeds earned by the author and publisher from the sale of this book will be donated to the Red Cross to aid in humanitarian relief efforts around the world.From the Hardcover edition.

Eve Lattimore's family is like every other on their suburban street, with one exception.

Rebellious and fiercely lyrical, the poems of C.D. Wright incorporate elements of disjunction and odd juxtaposition in their exploration of unfolding context. "In my book," she writes, "poetry is a necessity of life. It is a function of poetry to locate those zones inside us that would be free, and declare them so."C.D. Wright was born and raised in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas. She has received numerous awards for her work, including grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Guggenheim Foundation, the American Academy and Institute for Arts and Letters, and the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Foundation. She teaches at Brown University in Rhode Island."Expertly elliptical phrasings, and an uncounterfeitable, generous feel for real people, bodies and places, have lately made Wright one of America's oddest, best and most appealing poets. Her tenth book consists of a single long poem whose sentences, segments and prose-blocks weave loosely around and about, and grow out of, a road trip through the rural South. Clipped twangs, lyrical 'goblets of magnolialight,' and recurrent, mysterious, semi-allegorical figures like 'the snakeman' and 'the boneman' share space with place names, lexicographies, exhortations and wacky graffiti ('God is Louise').... cherish Wright's latest 'once-and-for-all thing, opaque and revelatory, ceaselessly burning.'"--Publishers Weekly"For me, C.D. Wright's poetry is river gold. 'Love whatever flows.' Her language is on the page half pulled out of earth and rivers--still holding onto the truth of the elements. I love her voice and pitch and the long snaky arms of her language that is willing to hold everything--human and angry and beautiful."--Michael Ondaatje"C.D. Wright is entirely her own poet, a true original."--The Gettysburg Review
