Millions of people around the world have experienced contact from the other side. In this inspiring and uplifting short story leading expert Jacky Newcomb shares some of the stories she's received about contact and life after death.
The story and science of how animals find their way home.
Home is the place we long for most, when we feel we have travelled too far, for too long. Since boyhood, acclaimed scientist and author Bernd Heinrich has returned every year to a beloved patch of woods in his native western Maine. But while it's the pull of nostalgia that informs our desire to go back, what is it that drives the homing instinct in animals?
Heinrich explores the fascinating science behind the mysteries of animal migration: how geese imprint true visual landscape memory over impossible distances; how the subtlest of scent trails are used by many creatures, from fish to insects to amphibians, to pinpoint their home; and how the tiniest of songbirds are equipped for solar and magnetic orienteering over vast distances. Most movingly, Heinrich chronicles the spring return of a pair of sandhill cranes to their pond in the Alaska tundra. With his marvellously evocative prose, Heinrich portrays the psychological state of the newly arrived birds, articulating just what their yearly return truly means, to the birds and to those fortunate enough to witness this transcendently beautiful ritual.
The Homing Instinct is an enchanting study of this phenomenon of the natural world, reminding us that to discount our own feelings toward home is to ignore biology itself.
Ashlyn Macnamara weaves a delicious tale of two souls torn apart by circumstance and reunited by fate--perfect for fans of Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, and Sabrina Jeffries. Henrietta Upperton is about to marry Alexander Sanford when he rushes off to India to salvage his family’s fortune. Then comes the devastating news that he has wed another. Eight agonizing years later, a storm washes Alexander ashore--injured, widowed, and hunted--and one glimpse of his ruggedly handsome face reawakens the desire Henrietta thought she had buried deep inside. Her body still yearns for his touch, but she’s determined not let him wound her again . . . not this time. For Alexander, honor always comes first. But only now does he realize that when given the choice between two virtuous deeds, he picked the wrong one. On the run with his life in tatters and a pair of daughters in tow, Alexander burns for Henrietta. He knows he does not deserve forgiveness. And yet he longs to wrap his arms around her warm body once again. What’s more, he is sure the lady craves the same. Praise for the novels of Ashlyn Macnamara “Ashlyn Macnamara is a born storyteller, weaving tales rich in angst, humor, and history as she treats readers to the steamier side of Regency. Her inventive prose has secured her a place on my auto-buy list, and her memorable characters have secured a place in my heart. Don’t forget to set your morning alarm, though . . . you’ll be reading far past your bedtime!”--New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer McQuiston, on What a Lady Craves “This touchingly romantic and effortlessly plotted historical is a gem to be savored.”--Publishers Weekly, on A Most Devilish Rogue “A sensual romance, filled with the witty dialogue one expects from a Regency novel, and a plethora of enjoyable characters.”--New York Journal of Books, on A Most Devilish Rogue “Macnamara uses smooth writing to create well-rendered characters and a complex storyline.”--Kirkus Reviews, on A Most Devilish Rogue “Ashlyn Macnamara is back! And follows her spectacular debut novel, A Most Scandalous Proposal, with an infinitely darker view into a bygone era. A Most Devilish Rogue forces us to look beyond the glitter and discover that love really can and does conquer all.”--Tea and Book, on A Most Devilish Rogue “[Macnamara] skillfully incorporates the mores, customs and nuances of society into a charming tale and then adds a fresh spin as she delves into the intricate relationship between sisters. . . . Readers will find themselves happily enchanted by this debut.”--RT Book Reviews, on A Most Scandalous Proposal “Gossip, scandal, and breezy banter enliven this unusual dual love story that features some beautifully rendered secondary characters, illuminates realistic dilemmas, and highlights the overwhelming importance of one’s social standing.”--Library Journal, on A Most Scandalous Proposal “Macnamara’s characters are amazingly realistic, the dialogue is believable and the storyline will keep readers avidly turning the pages.”--Romance Junkies, on A Most Scandalous Proposal Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title....
During World War I, the ancient manor house of Greyladies in rural Wiltshire is requisitioned for a hospital. Its mistress, Harriet Latimer, her husband Joseph and their two sons are allowed to stay in part of the house, but when tragedy strikes Joseph's brothers, his future at Greyladies is at risk. Latimer family legend says a new mistress will be found to look after the house, yet how does this happen?
In Swindon, Phoebe Sinclair is unaware of her connection to Greyladies and the Latimers. When her German employers are interned because of the war, she loses her job. Worse still, her brutish step-cousin Frank tries to force her to marry him and Phoebe has no choice but to flee to London.
A chance encounter leads her to a new life as a nursing assistant in the VAD (voluntary aid detachments), and to a blossoming friendship with Captain Corin McMinty. When Phoebe is posted to the hospital at Greyladies, she feels she's come home. But Frank is still pursuing her and Corin has his own problems. With obstacles at every turn, can Phoebe find happiness and embrace the role of mistress of Greyladies?
High up in the Conrad Flats that loom bleakly over Acton, two future stars of the literary scene - or so they assume - are hard at work, tapping out words of wit and brilliance between ill-paid jobs writing captions for the Cat Calendar 1985 and blurbs for trashy novels with titles like Brothel of the Vampire. Just twenty-one but already well entrenched in a life eked out on dole payments, pints and dollops of porridge and pasta, Llewellyn and Cunningham don't have it too bad: a pub on the corner, a misdirected parental allowance, and the delightful company of Aoife, Llewellyn's model fiancée, mother of his young baby - and the woman of Cunningham's increasingly vivid dreams.
Alan Warner's superb new novel sees the author of Morvern Callar at the top of his game.
But when the policeman finally does confront him, Riktor freezes. The man is arresting him for something totally unexpected. Riktor doesn't have a clear conscience, but the crime he's being accused of is one he certainly didn't commit. Can he clear his name without further incriminating himself?
This is a gripping, mind-bending stand-alone novel from "a truly great writer" (Jo Nesbø).
I Am Number Four: The Lost Files: Hidden Enemy is a collection of three action-packed novellas by bestselling author Pittacus Lore.
Five's Legacy tells the story of Five's early years on Earth when he was just a young teen on the run, discovering his abilities and making the wrong kind of friends.
Return to Paradise picks up in the aftermath of the Mog attack on Ohio, and follows Mark James as he struggles between returning to a normal life and helping John Smith and the others.
Five's Betrayal is the exhilarating continuation of Five's story, in which he joins the Mogadorian ranks and must demonstrate his allegiance to them by helping to destroy the other Lorien survivors.
