Now she's about to learn that there's more to the story... She shares a closer connection to her Vittra rivals than she ever imagined—and they'll stop at nothing to lure her to their side.

But that means walking away from Finn, her handsome bodyguard who's strictly off limits...and Loki, a Vittra prince with whom she shares a growing attraction.

Justin Lee, a gay man and devout Christian, bridges the gaps between his faith and sexuality in this insightful and touching memoir. As a teenager and young man, Justin Lee felt deeply torn. Nicknamed "God Boy" by his peers, he knew that he was called to a life in the evangelical Christian ministry. But Lee harbored a secret: He also knew that he was gay. In this groundbreaking book, Lee recalls the events--his coming out to his parents, his experiences with the "ex-gay" movement, and his in-depth study of the Bible--that led him, eventually, to self-acceptance. But more than just a memoir, TORN provides insightful, practical guidance for all committed Christians who wonder how to relate to gay friends or family members--or who struggle with their own sexuality. Convinced that "in a culture that sees gays and Christians as enemies, gay Christians are in a unique position to bring peace," Lee demonstrates that people of faith on both sides of the debate can respect, learn from, and love one another.

Clorinda Matto de Turner was the first Peruvian novelist to command an international reputation and the first to dramatize the exploitation of indigenous Latin American people. She believed the task of the novel was to be the photograph that captures the vices and virtues of a people, censuring the former with the appropriate moral lesson and paying its homage of admiration to the latter. In this tragic tale, Clorinda Matto de Turner explores the relationship between the landed gentry and the indigenous peoples of the Andean mountain communities. While unfolding as a love story rife with secrets and dashed hopes, Torn from the Nest in fact reveals a deep and destructive class disparity, and criticizes the Catholic clergy for blatant corruption. When Lucia and Don Fernando Marin settle in the small hamlet of Killac, the young couple become advocates for the local Indians who are being exploited and oppressed by their priest and governor and by the gentry allied with these two. Considered meddling outsiders, the couple meet violent resistance from the village leaders, who orchestrate an assault on their house and pursue devious and unfair schemes to keep the Indians subjugated. As a romance blossoms between the a member of the gentry and the peasant girl that Lucia and Don Fernando have adopted, a dreadful secret prevents their marriage and brings to a climax the novel's exposure of degradation: they share the same father--a parish priest. Torn from the Nest was first published in Peru in 1889 amidst much enthusiasm and outrage. This fresh translation--the first since 1904--preserves one of Peru's most distinctive and compelling voices.

When Every Why Goes Unanswered When our world comes crashing down, it does more than steal our peace. Something inside us tears. We feel broken, stranded—torn. We naturally ask the question “Why?” when we’re hurting. But as pastor Jud Wilhite turned to the Bible in his own pain, he was surprised to discover that another question matters more: “Who?” Who is worthy of our trust when our trust when our lives are in pieces? You may be experiencing a time of such darkness that you wonder if you will ever find “normal” again or look toward the future with hope. In Torn, Jud explores your questions as well as God’s answers—and God’s mysteries. With a pastor’s heart, he looks with you at practical ways to fight for joy, deal with anger and depression, and make the million tiny decisions that add up to a life committed to God, even when your heart is broken. It’s not about having better arguments for the purpose behind our suffering. It’s about our relationship with God—a relationship that can flourish even when our whys go unanswered.

"And I, I will always be split in two - did I make the right decision? And, being torn, I will always have a life which straddles the ocean - a foot on each continent. I will never be completely whole again." In 2004, Bronwyn McIntosh wrote an article about her reasons for leaving South Africa. The unexpected spate of emails that followed was exacerbated by President Mbeki's public criticism of the article. After five years of ongoing correspondence with a wide range of people, Bronwyn wrote a book about her journey to becoming an expatriate. In it she also shares the stories, emotions, experiences and opinions of her numerous correspondents. A few stories are amusing; most are poignant; some are not for the faint-hearted.

"The Torn Book: UnReading William Blake's Marginalia argues for the connection between British poet and painter William Blake's marginalia (the annotations he made in the volumes he owned and borrowed) and the role that often multivalent symbols like pens, writers, readers, and books play throughout his art." "The Torn Book pays particular attention to original Blake items, including the various annotated volumes housed at the Huntington Library, Houghton Library, Cambridge's University Library and Wren Library, Dr. Williams's Library, and the British Library, among others."--BOOK JACKET.
