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.

"My grandmother, Mae Kirwin, scared me". With that disturbing, distant memory mystery novelist Mary Logue begins her exploration of the life of her mother's mother, who died when Logue was nine years old. Mae McNally Kirwin was born in 1894 in Chokio, a small prairie community in western Minnesota. In 1926, the sudden death of her husband left Mae to support herself and her five children. She took a job as postmaster of Chokio, where she lived until her death in 1961. These straightforward facts are not enough for Logue. Who was Mae Kirwin? What was it like to live in her world? Determined to get to know her grandmother better, Logue sets out to discover and assemble the bits and pieces of her grandmother's life. In the process, Logue takes the reader - and herself - on a journey of discovery. Digging through forgotten bank records, old newspapers, handwritten census forms, family documents, and faded recipes, she pieces together the past. Interviews with the few surviving family members who knew Mae bring vitality to the bare facts. Logue slowly brings into focus a portrait of Mae Kirwin, immersing us in a lifetime that began with horse-drawn carriages and ended in a freak auto accident. Along the way, she tells a much larger story - that of a community, a way of life, a family, and a single woman's struggle to survive in a world that is both harsh and richly rewarding.

The life story of Gary Gygax, godfather of all fantasy adventure games, has been told only in bits and pieces. Michael Witwer has written a dynamic, dramatized biography of Gygax from his childhood in Lake Geneva to his untimely death in 2008. Gygax's magnum opus, Dungeons & Dragons, would explode in popularity throughout the 1970s and '80s and irreversibly alter the world of gaming. D&D is the best-known, best-selling role-playing game of all time, and it boasts an elite class of alumni--Stephen Colbert, Robin Williams, and Junot Diaz all have spoken openly about their experience with the game as teenagers, and some credit it as the workshop where their nascent imaginations were fostered. Gygax's involvement in the industry lasted long after his dramatic and involuntary departure from D&D's parent company, TSR, and his footprint can be seen in the genre he is largely responsible for creating. But as Witwer shows, perhaps the most compelling facet of his life and work was his unwavering commitment to the power of creativity in the face of myriad sources of adversity, whether cultural, economic, or personal. Through his creation of the role-playing genre, Gygax gave two generations of gamers the tools to invent characters and entire worlds in their minds. Told in narrative-driven and dramatic fashion, Witwer has written an engaging chronicle of the life and legacy of this emperor of the imagination.

Scrounged from his notebooks and hearsay, this is the story of a schoolteacher named Konrad Zundel: a philosopher, a wanna-be writer; scattered, self-conscious, glum, anxious, unlucky, discontent...At the end of his rope, he decides to flee his workaday life at all costs, only to find escape always a little beyond his reach. First his tooth falls out in the sight of other travelers, then he finds a severed finger in a restroom on a train. In fact, Zundel seems on the verge of falling to bits, as do his words, thoughts, wife, and world -- will there be anything left, and anyone to hold the pieces? Zundel's Exit is a Chaplinesque comedy of disintegration, never knowing if it's coming or going.

Sinead Moriarty's delicious tenth novel, The Secrets Sisters Keep, is the story of three sisters, three life-altering problems and one eternal truth: nobody knows you quite like a sister! Sinead's writing mixes the worldly wit of Jane Green with the down-to-earth warmth and insight of Marian Keyes and will remind people just how important their sisters - and their friends-who-are-like-sisters - are to them. The Devlin sisters rely on each other - but some things are just too painful to share, even when your sisters are your best friends...Mum-of-four Julie thought that if her family had more money, life would be easier. But now that they've inherited a fortune, her problems are only starting. Lawyer Louise is used to having life go exactly as she wants it to. So accepting that she cannot control everything in her world is beyond her. And former model Sophie can just about cope with getting older - that's until her ex-husband finds a younger model. All three women think that some battles are best fought alone. Maybe they need to think again...Praise for Sinead: "Moving, disarmingly honest and at times laugh-out-loud funny". (Sunday Times). "One of the brightest voices in modern women's fiction". (Bella). "Sinead Moriarty can bring readers from hilarity to heartbreak with great deftness". (Sunday Independent). "Touching, warm, funny and emotional. She has the gift of telling a very emotive story with grace and empathy". (Woman's Way). Sinead Moriarty lives with her family in Dublin. Her previous titles are: The Baby Trail; A Perfect Match; From Here to Maternity; In My Sister's Shoes; Keeping It In the Family (also titled Whose Life is it Anyway?); Pieces of My Heart; Me and My Sisters; This Child of Mine and Mad About You.
