The delectable new installment in the bestselling and already beloved adventures of Isabel Dalhousie and her no-nonsense housekeeper, Grace. When friends from Dallas arrive in Edinburgh and introduce Isabel to Tom Bruce – a bigwig at home in Texas – several confounding situations unfurl at once. Tom’s young fiancée’s roving eye leads Isabel to believe that money may be the root of her love for Tom. But what, Isabel wonders, is the root of the interest Tom begins to show for Isabel herself? And she can’t forget about her niece, Cat, who’s busy falling for a man whom Isabel suspects of being an incorrigible mama’s boy. Of course Grace and Isabel’s friend Jamie counsel Isabel to stay out of all of it, but there are irresistible philosophical issues at stake – when to tell the truth and when to keep one’s mouth shut, to be precise – and philosophical issues are meat and drink to Isabel Dalhousie, editor of the Review of Applied Ethics. In any case, she’s certain of the ethical basis for a little sleuthing now and again – especially when the problems involve matters of the heart.

The delightful second installment in Alexander McCall Smith’s already hugely popular new detective series, The Sunday Philosophy Club, starring the irrepressibly curious Isabel Dalhousie — editor of the Journal of Applied Ethics — and her no-nonsense housekeeper, Grace. When Isabel’s niece, Cat, asks Isabel to run her delicatessen while she attends a wedding in Italy, Isabel meets a man with a most interesting problem. He recently had a heart transplant, and is suddenly plagued with memories of events that never happened to him. The situation appeals to Isabel as a philosophical question. Is the heart truly the seat of the soul? And it piques her insatiable curiosity: could the memories be connected with the donor’s demise? Grace, of course, thinks it is none of Isabel’s business. Add to the mix the lothario Cat brings home from the wedding in Italy, who, in accordance with all that Isabel knows about lotharios, shouldn’t be trusted . . . but goodness, he is charming. That makes two mysteries of the heart to be solved — just the thing for Isabel Dalhousie.

The 13th book in Alexander McCall Smith's popular 44 Scotland Street series is a sheer delight. Summer has come to Scotland Street. The long days have prompted its denizens to engage in flights of fancy. Some, like the Duke of Johannesburg's plan to create a microlite seaplane, are literal flights, and some, like the vain Bruce Anderson's idea of settling down with one of his many admirers, are more metaphorical. With the domineering Irene off pursuing academic challenges, Stuart and Bertie are free to indulge in summer fun. Stuart reconnects with an old acquaintance over refreshing peppermint tea while Bertie takes his friend Ranald Braveheart Macpherson to the circus. But their trip to the big top becomes rather more than the pleasant diversion they were hoping for. Once again, Scotland Street teems with the daily triumphs and challenges of those who call it home, and provides a warm, wise, and witty chronicle of the affairs in this corner of the world.

Judd Markley is a hardworking coal miner who rarely thinks much past tomorrow until he loses his brother--and nearly his own life--in a mine cave-in. Vowing never to enter the darkness of a mine again, he leaves all he knows in West Virginia to escape to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It's 1954, the seaside community is thriving, and Judd soon hires on with a timber company. Larkin Heyward's life in Myrtle Beach is uncomplicated, mostly doing volunteer work and dancing at the Pavilion. But she dreams of one day doing more--maybe moving to the hollers of Kentucky to help the poor children of Appalachia. But she's never even met someone who's lived there--until she encounters Judd, the newest employee at her father's timber company. Drawn together in the wake of a devastating hurricane, Judd and Larkin each seek answers to what tomorrow will bring. As opposition rises against following their divergent dreams, they realize that it may take a miracle for them to be together.

The bestselling author of the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series returns with the first in an irresistible new series about a food writer, Paul Stuart's adventures in love and wine amid the Italian countryside. A National Bestseller! Paul Stuart, a renowned food writer, finds himself at loose ends after his longtime girlfriend leaves him for her personal trainer. To cheer him up, Paul’s editor, Gloria, encourages him to finish his latest cookbook on-site in Tuscany, hoping that a change of scenery (plus the occasional truffled pasta and glass of red wine) will offer a cure for both heartache and writer’s block. But upon Paul’s arrival, things don’t quite go as planned. A mishap with his rental-car reservation leaves him stranded, until a newfound friend leads him to an intriguing alternative: a bulldozer. With little choice in the matter, Paul accepts the offer, and as he journeys (well, slowly trundles) into the idyllic hillside town of Montalcino, he discovers that the bulldozer may be the least of the surprises that await him. What follows is a delightful romp through the lush sights and flavors of the Tuscan countryside, as Paul encounters a rich cast of characters, including a young American woman who awakens in him something unexpected. A feast for the senses and a poignant meditation on the complexity of human relationships, My Italian Bulldozer is a charming and intensely satisfying love story for anyone who has ever dreamed of a fresh start.

Something to Stand the Rain is a biographical memoir that celebrates the often unrecognized worth of individuals beneath the radar of fame. At a time in our nation when faith in its leadership is at a low ebb, the components of a good man are laid out for review before being illustrated in the life of a man named David Dionisi, someone who rose to wealth as corporate executive before surrendering it to lift up those less fortunate than himself. Youthful longing to be a paratrooper carries him beyond a pancake landing without benefit of parachute from which, miraculously, he walks away. Military service as an intelligence officer ends when conflicting with love for the woman he marries. Though he rises rocket-like in the corporate world, his affluence leaves him dissatisfied. Moved to overwhelming compassion by the suffering of the poor and needy, he decides to devote his savings and his talents to their aid. Among the benefactions born of the foundation he launches are an orphanage in Africaand a writing career. This emerges from realization that one of the most effective ways to lift the impoverished from their plight rests in the exposure of its unrecognized root causes.

Praise for Experiencing the Blessings and Good Fruit of Cancer “Oh, how I searched for a book just like this one when I was diagnosed with breast cancer two and a half years ago. Experiencing the Blessings and Good Fruit of Cancer is an insightful and uplifting look into dealing positively with all aspects of cancer from a patient’s perspective. Expect to be blessed and to grow spiritually as you read this incredible book written by a woman with an inspirational attitude like no other.” —Kristi Evans, breast cancer survivor and lay navigator, Baylor All Saints Medical Center, Fort Worth; Joan Katz Breast Center “Judy has written a beautiful record of her journey through cancer. It carefully describes all that a cancer patient might experience, but is written in such a way as to bring hope and encouragement to not only the patient, but the family and friends who stand with them. There is hope even through the darkest days; and Judy identifies clearly the source of all hope: our Lord, Jesus Christ. Thank you for sharing your journey with us!” —Nan Dean, first lady at Travis Ave Baptist Church; Fort Worth, Texas “Dr. Stamey’s heartfelt gratitude for the blessings that cancer has bestowed upon her speaks to the resilient character that cancer patients have. Her story is even more remarkable because she truly feels blessed despite losing her own daughter to cancer. It has been my blessing as a radiation oncologist to be touched by individuals such as Dr. Stamey.” —Dr. Kathryn Shide, MD, radiation oncologist, Texas Oncology; Fort Worth, Texas

This carefully crafted ebook: "Your Forces and How to Use Them (Six Volumes - Complete Edition)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Extract: "A principal means for holding and increasing both physical and mental strength lies in the training of the mind and body to do but one thing at a time; in other words, to put all the thought necessary for the performance of any act in that act, and to put aside all other thought whatever save what belongs to that act." Your Forces and How to Use Them is the most profound piece of work by one of the New Thought pioneers, Prentice Mulford. It contains six volumes and each one can be considered a separate book itself. These volumes are composed of numerous essays which, even though some being on various topics, still have one common goal, achieving prosperity and success using forces that are in us and which we are not aware of. The book was written in Mulford's final years and it was not published until after his death. Contents: YOU TRAVEL WHEN YOU SLEEP WHERE YOU TRAVEL WHEN YOU SLEEP THE ART OF FORGETTING HOW THOUGHTS ARE BORN THE LAW OF SUCCESS HOW TO KEEP YOUR STRENGTH CONSIDER THE LILIES THE ART OF STUDY PROFIT AND LOSS IN ASSOCIATES THE SLAVERY OF FEAR WHAT ARE SPIRITUAL GIFTS? THE PROCESS OF RE EMBODIMENT RE-EMBODIMENT UNIVERSAL IN NATURE Prentice Mulford (1834-1891) was a noted literary humorist, comic lecturer, author of poems and essays, and a columnist. He was also instrumental in the founding of the popular philosophy, New Thought, along with other notable writers including Ralph Waldo Emerson. Mulford's book, Thoughts are Things served as a guide to this new belief system and is still popular today. He also coined the term Law of Attraction.

Both through his own work and that of his students, Franz Clemens Brentano (1838–1917) had an often underappreciated influence on the course of twentieth- and twenty-first-century philosophy. The Routledge Handbook of Franz Brentano and the Brentano School offers full coverage of Brentano’s philosophy and his influence. It contains 38 brand-new essays from an international team of experts that offer a comprehensive view of Brentano’s central research areas—philosophy of mind, metaphysics, and value theory—as well as of the principal figures shaped by Brentano’s school of thought. A general introduction serves as an overview of Brentano and the contents of the volume, and three separate bibliographies point students and researchers on to further avenues of inquiry. Systematic and detailed, The Routledge Handbook of Franz Brentano and the Brentano School provides readers with a valuable reference to Brentano’s work and to his lasting importance in the history of philosophy and in contemporary debates.

The #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Power of Positive Thinking shows readers how to put his philosophy of optimism into action. Millions of people around the world have changed their lives for the better, thanks to Norman Vincent Peale and his Positive Thinking philosophy. Dr. Peale’s groundbreaking program of affirmation and positive visualization is an amazingly effective way to overcome any obstacles that may stand between you and success, happiness, and your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health and well-being. Positive Thinking works—and in The Power of Positive Living, Dr. Peale demonstrates how to use these techniques to conquer the fears and crippling adversity that may be holding you back from realizing your true potential in life. Self-confidence is the key and this book shows us how we can do it! With the “get-it-done twins,” patience and perseverance, any believer can be an achiever! Dr. Peale provides inspiring success stories from his own extensive experience as a counselor—such as a department store executive who turned his store into one of the chain’s most profitable by focusing on his past successes rather than his failures, and a woman who recovered her self-confidence and joy and purpose in living when she started volunteering with cancer survivors after her own breast cancer diagnosis cut short her modeling career. The wisdom, guidance, and practical advice provided in The Power of Positive Living will give you faith in yourself and in your power to achieve absolutely anything!
