Discover the untold story of the queens of Wonderland. There is trouble in Wonderland. The king is gone and his court overthrown. The kingdom is now under the control of the queen and her ruthless cousin, Elzana Blackheart. All is not the same. Taking advantage of her cousin’s naivety and insecurities, Blackheart has reshaped the kingdom to fit her own preferences for purity and perfection. Anything not in line with such is considered expendable. However, the birth of the queen’s daughter, Wonderland's future Queen of Hearts, creates a fissure in the stranglehold Blackheart has over the kingdom. Threatened by the newborn’s existence, with bright red hair and birthmarks, Blackheart orders the queen’s servants to dispose of the baby girl. Underlying opposition to Blackheart’s injustices boils to the surface leading one servant, Marie, to flee the palace with the newborn. Marie’s disappearance and sudden physical changes in the queen leave Blackheart questioning everything.

Sati symbolizes ultimate loyalty and self-sacrifice. It often figures near the core of a Hindu identity that feels embattled in a modern world. Yet to those who deplore it, sati is a curse, a violation of every woman's womanhood.

Like the acclaimed Apologetics Study Bible that has sold 115,000+ copies, the Apologetics Study Bible for Students will anchor younger Christians in the truths of Scripture by equipping them with thoughtful and practical responses for whenever the core issues of their faith and life are challenged. Multiple research studies have shown that spiritual focus often weakens among teenagers as they head into the attention-dividing realm of young adulthood. Up to 66% of them leave church altogether. The Apologetics Study Bible for Students works against that trend by helping this audience begin to better articulate its beliefs. In addition to the complete HCSB text and dozens of articles collected from today’s most popular youth leaders, including general editor Sean McDowell, this new study Bible also includes: • Two-color design-intensive layout on every page for the visual generation • Sixty “Twisted Scriptures” explanations • Fifty “Bones & Dirt” entries (archaeology meets apologetics) • Fifty “Notable Quotes” • Twenty-five “Tactics” against common anti-Christian arguments • Twenty “Personal Stories” of how God has worked in real lives • Twenty “Top Five” lists to help remember key apologetics topics

A drought-stricken midwestern town gets some unexpected help in this “warm, whimsical novel full of humor and down-home wisdom” (Jennifer Chiaverini). It hasn’t rained in a hundred days, it’s hotter than Beelzebub’s oven, and the ground is harder than a cast-iron skillet. The good folks of Ebb, Nebraska, could surely use a miracle. Lifelong residents are fleeing, and the town is on the verge of collapse. Wilma Porter, the plucky owner of the Come Again Bed and Breakfast, and her indomitable friends from the Quilting Circle need to do something to save Ebb, and fast. But short of praying for rain, there’s little even the powerful Quilting Circle can do. Enter Vernon L. Moore. The last time this mysterious traveling salesman came to stay at the Come Again B&B, he turned the town around in six days. When he left, he became a legend. Wilma and her friends have come to expect surprises from Moore, but this time they’re stunned when he brings help: three widows from the town of Eden with pasts as enigmatic as his. The Widows of Eden is an entertaining, inspiring novel about community, hope, and a new way of looking at the things that matter most. Following In the Land of Second Chances and One Part Angel, “the third installment in Shaffner’s gently inspirational series provides a gracious reminder of the power of faith and the rewards of friendship” (Booklist).

Ein eleganter Pageturner um ein Gemälde aus dem 17. Jahrhundert Sara de Vos ist 1631 die erste Malerin, die in die Meistergilde in Amsterdam aufgenommen wird. Dreihundert Jahre später ist nur ein einziges ihrer Gemälde erhalten geblieben. Das Bild hängt über dem Bett eines reichen, etwas ruhelosen New Yorker Anwalts. Ohne böse Absichten kopiert eine junge Australierin das Bild. Doch die Kopie wird in Umlauf gebracht, mit erschütternden Konsequenzen. Jahrzehnte später treffen die beiden Bilder, die Fälscherin und der Anwalt noch einmal aufeinander ... „Wie der Autor drei Zeitläufte und Städte verbindet ist so brillant wie fesselnd.“ The Washington Post „Smiths Roman erinnert uns daran, dass die Wahrheiten, denen wir vertrauen, wertvoll bleiben, auch wenn sie ungenau sind.“ The Chicago Tribune „Ein Roman über Liebe und Sehnsucht, über Authentizität und ethische Grauzonen, vor allem aber über die Malerei als ein Weg, Trauer in Schönheit zu verwandeln.“ Lauren Groff, Autorin von „Licht und Zorn“ „Hinreißende Erzählkunst. Mit einer fast greifbaren Kenntnis der vielen Verästellungen des menschlichen Herzens. Dieser Roman hält Sie nachts wach, anfangs, weil Sie unbedingt weiterlesen wollen, dann weil Sie bewusst langsamer lesen, um das Ende hinauszuzögern.“ The Boston Globe
