"Landon Reed is an ex-quarterback convicted of organizing a
points-shaving scheme. During his time in prison, he found forgiveness and
faith and earned his law degree. Now he longs for an opportunity to prove
his loyalty and worth. Be careful what you ask for.
Harry McNaughton is one of the founding partners of McNaughton & Clay--and
the only lawyer willing to take a chance employing an ex-con-turned-lawyer.
Though Landon initially questions Harry's ethics and methods, it's clear the
crusty old lawyer has one of the most brilliant legal minds Landon has ever
encountered. The two dive into preparing a defense for one of the
highest-profile murder trials Virginia Beach has seen in decades when Harry
is gunned down in what appears to be a random mugging. Then two more lawyers
are killed when the firm's private jet crashes. Authorities suspect someone
has a vendetta against McNaughton & Clay, leaving Landon and the remaining
partner as the final targets.
As Landon struggles to keep the firm together, he can't help but wonder, is
the plot related to a shady case from McNaughton & Clay's past, or to the
murder trial he's neck-deep in now? And will he survive long enough to find

Maryam Rostampour, Marziyeh Amirizadeh, John Perry
"Embark on a chilling journey inside one of the world's darkest and
most dangerous places: Evin, the notorious Tehran prison. Here,
prisoners are routinely tortured, abused, and violated. Executions are
frequent and sudden. But for two women imprisoned for their Christian
faith--Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh--this hell on earth was a
place of unlikely grace as they reflected God's love and compassion to
their fellow prisoners and guards. Against all odds, Evin would become
the only church many of them had ever known.
In Captive in Iran, Maryam and Marziyeh recount their 259 days in Evin.
It's an amazing story of unyielding faith--when denying God would have
meant freedom. Of incredible support from strangers around the world who
fought for the women's release. And of bringing God's light into one of
the world's darkest places--giving hope to those who had lost everything,
and showing love to those in despair."

Before the Stonehenge Riverside Project led by noted archeologist Mike Parker Pearson, only half of Stonehenge itself--and far less of its surroundings--had ever been investigated, and many records from previous digs are inaccurate or incomplete. With fresh evidence based on seven years of unprecedented access to the Stonehenge World Heritage Site, this excavation replaces centuries of speculation about even the most fundamental mysteries of Stonehenge with hard proof. Stonehenge changes the way we think about the site, correcting previously erroneous dating, filling gaps in our knowledge about its builders and how they lived, clarifying the monument's significance both celestially and as a burial ground, and contextualizing Stonehenge--which sits at the center of one of the densest prehistoric settlements in history--within the broader landscape of the Neolithic Age.

promise that the lush hills of Ireland did not. As her efforts to earn
enough money to bring her mother to America fail, she wonders if her new

leader. A policeman with a personal commitment to help those less fortunate

well in a new nanny job, and avoid the gang intent on intimidating her,

courage and forgiveness.
Lindy Boone Michaelis, Susy Flory
On June 19, 2001, Ryan Corbin, grandson of Pat Boone, accidently stepped
through a skylight and fell three stories onto a cement floor. When he broke
through that roof, Ryan fell into a very different life from the one he had
before as the beloved son of Lindy Boone Michaelis and first grandson of
entertainment icon Pat Boone. As Ryan lingered between life and death in
intensive care at UCLA Medical Center, Pat and Lindy decided to take action,
in a big way; they went on Larry King Live, shared their faith, and asked
millions of TV viewers to pray for Ryan. And so, they prayed. Heaven Hears
is an unbelievable story of answered prayer--and it's not over yet. This book
will inspire you to look for answers to prayer and to see God's miracles.

"There's nothing quite like family--for good or bad. But in a world where
we sometimes know more about the Kardashians than we do the people
sleeping right down the hall, it's easy to forget that walking through
life with our family offers all sorts of joy wrapped up in the seemingly
mundane. There's even a little bit of sacred sitting smack-dab in the
middle of the ordinary. And since time's-a-wastin', we need to be
careful that we don't take our people--and their stories--for granted.
Whether it's a marathon bacon-frying session, a road trip gone
hysterically wrong, or a mother-in-law who makes every trip to the
grocery store an adventure, author Sophie Hudson reminds us how
important it is to slow down and treasure the day-to-day encounters with
the people we love the most.
Written in the same witty style as Sophie's BooMama blog, A Little
Salty to Cut the Sweet is a cheerful, funny, and tender account of
Sophie's very Southern family. It's a look into the real lives of real
people--and a real, loving God right in the middle of it all."

"Amanda is a raging perfectionist. She begins each day with a long
list. â€œKeep the house picked up; limit myself to two Diet Cokes; spend
special time with each of the kids; work out; pray; avoid sugar; read a
chapter in a book about something very important; read my Bible; call my
mom.â€ She determines each day's worth, and ultimately her own, by
keeping track of her stats--pounds gained or lost, stuff accomplished.
That is, until God spoke into her life, waking her up to the true costs
of her addiction to perfection. Confessions of a Raging Perfectionist is
more than Amanda's confession; it's a journey of letting go of the
subtle but destructive idols of her overactive inner voice and replacing
them with God's truth. Amanda hopes her journey can inspire others to
let God dig in to their own lives, uncovering the subtle lies we
unconsciously live by."

Crossing the Line - a rare portfolio of investigative documentaries, where engaged filmmakers look at what a certain number of North Korean defectors have experienced to escape their country. At the risk of their lives and those left behind.
Korea, orphan of the Cold War, remains even in 2011 a divided country.

The North, still supported by Beijing, is rumored to suffer from continuous famine and is run as a communist regime with Stalinist overtones. The South, heavily supported by Washington, is ruled as a Western-style democracy.
