Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

For the first time, ten years after her abduction from her Salt Lake City bedroom, Elizabeth Smart reveals how she survived and the secret to forging a new life in the wake of a brutal crime On June 5, 2002, fourteen-year-old Elizabeth Smart, the daughter of a close-knit Mormon family, was taken from her home in the middle of the night by religious fanatic, Brian David Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee. She was kept chained, dressed in disguise, repeatedly raped, and told she and her family would be killed if she tried to escape. After her rescue on March 12, 2003, she rejoined her family and worked to pick up the pieces of her life. Now for the first time, in her memoir, MY STORY, she tells of the constant fear she endured every hour, her courageous determination to maintain hope, and how she devised a plan to manipulate her captors and convinced them to return to Utah, where she was rescued minutes after arriving. Smart explains how her faith helped her stay sane in the midst of a nightmare and how she found the strength to confront her captors at their trial and see that justice was served. In the nine years after her rescue, Smart transformed from victim to advocate, traveling the country and working to educate, inspire and foster change. She has created a foundation to help prevent crimes against children and is a frequent public speaker. In 2012, she married Matthew Gilmour, whom she met doing mission work in Paris for her church, in a fairy tale wedding that made the cover of "People" magazine.

My New Friend, Grief: Reflections on Loss and Life BALBOA PR

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

I force my mouth to form a smile, but it is hard to look people in the eyes. I hear my dad's voice whispering, "Eye contact, Anna." But making eye contact means seeing and being seen. I try to avoid it. My head is nodding while my heart screams in disagreement with what is being said, "NO HE IS NOT IN A BETTER PLACE. THIS IS WHERE HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE. THERE IS NO BETTER PLACE THAN RIGHT HERE. WITH US.... With extraordinary honesty, Anna Hodges Oginsky shares how she experienced grief after the sudden death of her father. My New Friend, Grief: Reflections on Loss and Life tells the story of how Oginsky's previous life experience shaped her understanding of death and loss. As she sifted through the broken pieces of her heart, she discovered that befriending grief would allow her to move through life in richer, more meaningful ways. My New Friend Grief brings to light the feelings and fears many of us face in grief, but hesitate to explore. As Oginsky reveals her personal insights into loss and life, we find a friend who affirms for us that, as we too grieve, we are not alone.

War Bond Story (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The War Bond Story This is a story of the War Bond program during the war years of 1941 through 1945. It is a story of four men who planned, organized and operated the most successful promotion, advertising and government financing program this world has ever known - Secretary of Treasury Henry Morgenthau, Jr., Harold Graves, Assistant to the Secretary, Dr. Peter Odegard, professor at Amherst College and Theodore (Ted) Gamble, businessman, Portland, Oregon. It is also a story of thousands of patriotic American volunteers who made the program succeed. These volunteers did not ask what their government could do for them - they did what they could for their government. Never question the fact that when the "chips are down" and this country is in danger, the people of the United States will do their part in any worthwhile government program, if responsible leaders tell them what they want done. One must understand, in writing the War Bond story, it was impossible for any one person to know about every promotion or activity of the program. It covered too much area. The thousands of volunteers were prominent citizens from banking and finance, industry, labor unions, schools, advertising, minority groups and every phase of American life. After each state was organized they operated in an independent manner. Programs, promotions and materials were presented which they could accept or reject. This was not a military organization and it did not operate as employer and employee. It was in September 1939 when I first met Harold Graves. I had been working on tax fraud cases in Boston as Special Agent of the Intelligence Unit, Treasury Department. My Chief, Elmer Irey, had phoned me to report to his office in Washington at once. I presumed it was another tax fraud case. It was a surprise when he advised me that Graves wanted to see me at the Treasury. I was not very enthusiastic about such an interview. Graves had an unfavorable reputation among the agents of being tough, unreasonable, and if he thought an agent was inefficient in any way, he would "cut him to pieces." On entering Graves' outer office I couldn't help overhear Special Agent Barker explain to Graves that he had been away for over three months and he wanted to return home.

Whose Life is it Anyway? Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In her fifth novel, "Whose Life Is It Anyway?", Sinead Moriarty has done it again: taken a complex topic - what happens when a young woman falls in love with someone dramatically different than the kind of man her family would have expected - and created an insightful, gripping and moving story filled with delightfully sparky characters, plenty of straight-talking, and all her trademark fun and humour. In balancing of light and shade, pathos and comedy, Sinead manages to pull off a unique feat - a story that combines the provocative qualities of a Jodi Picoult story with the warmth and humour of Marian Keyes. It's tricky for Niamh O'Flaherty, growing up in a North London home that's a shrine to all things Irish. But it's even trickier being an adult and realizing that her family expects her to settle down with a nice Irish lad, especially now that she's living in Dublin. When Niamh finally meets the love of her life he is the last person she would expect to fall for her. Pierre is older and an intellectual, but she loves his ability to laugh at himself, his calmness and strength of character, and, of course, his stunning looks. There's just one problem: if Pierre's parents - Jean and Fleur - are sniffy about their pride and joy hooking up with a girl who writes a fluffy newspaper column, her parents, Mick and Annie, are going to go ballistic when they hear that their daughter intends to marry someone who couldn't be less Irish if he tried...Sinead Moriarty's novels have sold over half a million copies in Ireland and the UK and she is a four times nominee for the popular fiction Irish Book Award. She has won over readers and critics telling stories that are funny, humane, moving and relevant to modern women. "Whose Life Is It Anyway?" is Sinead at her very best. (It is also published under the title "Keeping It In the Family".) Sinead Moriarty lives with her family in Dublin. Her other titles are: "The Baby Trail"; "A Perfect Match"; "From Here to Maternity"; "In My Sister's Shoes"; "Pieces of My Heart"; "Me and My Sisters" and "This Child of Mine".

In this companion to Urs Widmer's novel "My Mother's Lover", the narrator is again the son who pieces together the fragments of his parents' stories. Since the age of twelve, Karl, the father, has observed the family tradition of recording his life in a single notebook, but when his book is lost soon after his death, his son resolves to rewrite it. Here, we get to know Karl's friends - a collection of anti-fascist painters and architects known as Group 33. We learn of the early years of Karl's marriage and follow his military service as the Swiss fear a German invasion during World War II, his political activity for the Communist Party, and his brief career as a teacher. We are told of Karl's literary translations of his favorite French books, and, most important, the eerie and ever-present coffins outside the houses in the home village of Karl's father, one reserved for each individual from the day he or she is born. Widmer brilliantly combines family history and historical events to tell the story of a man more at home in the world of the imagination than in the real world, a father who grows on the reader, just as he grows on his son.

ACTION ACTION DESPITE THE DISTRACTION, delivers a life-changing message to empower "faithpreneurs" on their journey to live out their calling. Dr. Grant addresses the 7 most prevalent distractions that challenge our ability to achieve our goals and live our dreams: lack of belief, procrastination, disorganization / lack of focus, toxic people, fear, ego and selfishness.Anyone who seeks divine inspiration MUST purchase and read this timely piece as it provides "7 Life Lessons to Thrive & Live Your Destiny Now!" Below is an excerpt from the book: STATEMENT OF PURPOSE Someone very wise once said, "Life is God's Gift to us and what we do with our life is our gift to God."Throughout my life's journey, I have worked hard to show appreciation for such a gift. The reality is that it has not always been easy. I have made numerous mistakes, celebrated many triumphs, and climbed out of multiple valleys. Actually, my story is probably no different from yours. On this journey called life, none of us are exempt from the many distractions that can get in the way of living the life God intended for us. The lesson for me was learning these distractions are necessary pieces of our legacy, cleverly disguised as permanent disruptions. These distractions are merely life lessons that take the form of "temporary inconveniences" which bring opportunities to grow to the next best version of ourselves!As I was having this discussion with one of my friends while preparing for an event, God placed the following words in my spirit "ACTION ACTION... DESPITE THE DISTRACTION!!" This has become my personal battle cry. Each time I share it from the stage, it resonates with the audience and I hope it does with you also. If I had quit when facing the various distractions of my life, we wouldn't be connected now.

Myth of William Wallace ibidem

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Myth of William Wallace examines literary examples concerning William Wallace against the background of various historical sources and evaluates the construction, the changes and the relevance of this Scottish national myth.§ For over 700 years, William Wallace has been fascinating people. What he achieved for his country is almost unbelievable. Already during his lifetime, Wallace's reputation must have been legendary. Over the centuries, a powerful myth has been created around his person, which was fostered by diverse writers and even by Hollywood.§ There have been several periods throughout Scottish history when the interest in William Wallace intensified enormously, resulting in an increase of literary publications on the freedom fighter. Surprisingly enough, these climaxes appeared whenever the Scots were dissatisfied with the English rule and brought the old animosity between England and Scotland to new life. These tensions caused many writers to revive memories of Wallace and his ideals by projecting the medieval story into their own time. Thus, more and more bits and pieces were added to the myth whose message seems to have had tremendous effects on the Scots. Wallace's unfulfilled quest of freeing Scotland even became an issue in several programmes of political parties.
