Man sieht mit dem Herzen: Ein kleines Mädchen, neugierig und wissensbedürftig hat den Kopf voller Fragen und findet in ihrem Opa einen geduldigen Zuhörer und Erklärer. Er weiss über viel Bescheid und gibt es sehr gerne an sie weiter, ob am Meer oder in der Nacht, immer weiss sie, dass sie ihn auf seinem Sessel finden kann. Aber eines Tages ist der Sessel leer. Verunsichert und um es wirklich nicht zu verlieren, packt sie ihr Herz in eine Flasche und hängt sie sich um den Hals. Aber nun ist nichts mehr wie zuvor, Sterne, Ozean, sie hat keine Fragen mehr, die einzige Änderung ist die Flasche, die immer schwerer und hässlicher wird. Bis sie jemanden trifft, der kleiner und jünger ist und voller Fragen, wie sie früher. Sie beschliesst, ihr Herz wieder aus der Flasche zu holen, benötigt aber noch einmal Hilfe dazu. Ihr Herz kehrt an seinen Platz zurück und auch der Sessel ist nicht mehr so leer. Ein wunderschön illustriertes Buch zum Thema Trauern und dem Verlust von einer Person, der man nahe stand. Aber auch wie wichtig es für ein Kind ist, immer eine Ansprechsperson für alle Anliegen und Fragen zu haben. Ab 5 Jahren, *****, Monika Hedinger.

Music sensation Bird Barrett is hitting the road, headlining her first national tour after the launch of her second album. Singing to sold-out crowds can mess with a girl's sense of perspective, though. Luckily, Bird has her older brother, Dylan, and her best friend, Stella, along for the ride to keep her grounded. Then Dylan and Stella pair off as more than friends. Feeling left behind, Bird throws herself completely into her performances, cover shoots, and high-profile interviews. And the more she tries to distract herself with her career, the further she pushes everyone away-including her longtime crush, Adam Dean, who joined the tour as her opener. When Bird breaks down, she'll need help to find her footing again. But has she pushed everyone too far? In a life like this one, a country girl needs her family and friends-and maybe an old flame-most of all. A foot-stompin' finale to Alecia Whitaker's irresistible Wildflower series.

"Holiness is not at all about what you see, but it is, instead, all about what you do not see. Show me a Christian who has lost his fear of making himself of no reputation among the religious people so that he can love the lost with his life, and I will show you a very powerful and dangerous man." In THE WAY BACK HOME a very detailed description of personal holiness is provided so that every Christian can clearly understand just what holiness is - and what it is not. Dennis Chamberland traces the application of holiness all the way back to its scriptural origins. He also warns the reader in a careful, cautionary note of the recent historic misadventures into what holiness should never become. THE WAY BACK HOME is developed as a personal journey into this most necessary, but widely misunderstood aspect of every believer's life. This book is a six week prayer and spiritual journal that gives every reader, regardless of their present spiritual condition, the opportunity to make personal holiness an individual journey. Christians either live courageous lives or they compromise to make everyone happy. Oft called "extremists" by the secular culture, real Christians are forced to make the choice - conciliation or become minimalized and isolated. This is a manual for the committed Christian who dares to uncompromisingly serve Christ and at the same time achieve true unilateral love for everyone else with the same fervor they love the Master. It is a chart down the long and sometime tearful highway called life. It is a book only for the truly faithful. It is a manual that leads the way to the only viable option: brilliant success.

From the illustrator of the #1 smash hit The Day the Crayons Quit comes an imaginative tale of friendship in a world where what makes us different isn't nearly as important as what makes us the same. When a boy discovers a single-propeller airplane in his closet, he does what any young adventurer would do: He flies it into outer space! Millions of miles from Earth, the plane begins to sputter and quake, its fuel tank on empty. The boy executes a daring landing on the moon . . . but there’s no telling what kind of slimy, slithering, tentacled, fangtoothed monsters lurk in the darkness! (Plus, it’s dark and lonely out there.) Coincidentally, engine trouble has stranded a young Martian on the other side of the moon, and he’s just as frightened and alone. Martian, Earthling—it’s all the same when you’re in need of a friend.

From New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Barbara Freethy, an emotional, heartwarming contemporary romance set in a California river town, featuring a returned Marine and the woman he never forgot. Ex-Marine Gabe Ryder is fulfilling the last request of his best friend Rob, who was killed in a firefight during their final days of service. He promised to help Rob’s family—especially Rob’s twin sister, Alicia—with their struggling river rafting business. Gabe has a hidden past with Alicia, however; she’s the woman who taught him that love might exist, but he walked away from her. Alicia has more than enough on her plate with her brother’s death, her father’s injury from a tragic rafting accident, the entire town turning against them, and a series of dangerous attacks on her business. She doesn’t need this rugged loner who broke her heart. But passion flares between them, and this time, they can’t walk away. Alicia can’t help wondering: did Rob really send Gabe to watch over her—or did he want her to show Gabe the way home?

The journey continues in the sequel to The Road to Bal-Nigh...The Way Back HomePeace on one side of a war is not peace. Echdoel was putting an end to their part of the war, now it was time to convince Dashuri-Non the same. As usual, this was not going to be an easy task, but we had come to expect things to go wrong whenever I was involved. The leader of Dashuri-Non, Dwyer Ontant, had struck a deal with Maldeb Atled, the former leader of Echdoel, to put an end to the rebellion. Once the rebellion was out of the way, Maldeb and Dwyer could return to their power struggle. Dwyer, unaware Maldeb had been overthrown, now had his eyes set on the rebellion. Apparently, at the top of his 'To-do list' was to put an end to yours truly. The war was over in Echdoel. Now our journey would take us back to Dashuri-Non. I was heading home to finish the job...

August Cotton shouldn't be here. When a tragic accident calls him home to Magnolia Springs, this returned Veteran adds his parents to the list of things he's lost in recent years, right along with his IED detection dog and his left leg. As the sole guardian of his four-year-old sister, August must rely on his Marine training in raising a tiny hellion who's as stubborn as he is. But the Corps could never prepare him for this. Nor could they prepare him for Olivia Anders, a woman who'll stop at nothing to get her way. As owner of Paws for Cause, Olivia is no stranger to the broken men and women who return home from war. She's no stranger to broken dogs either. In fact, she's made it her mission to pair the two and enrich both of their lives, but pairing ornery and aloof August Cotton will take some work. The last thing August wants is some pushy southern woman occupying his parents' bed and breakfast and forcing him to open up about the hell he narrowly escaped, but that's exactly what Olivia intends. They complete one another, and yet they can't stand to be in the same room. Can Olivia make this hardened Marine feel again and finally show his heart the way back home? *** Intended for a mature 18+ audience only. This book may contain triggers for some readers.
