Summary

Hani is 12 and invisible, and yet everyone wants to capture him. After escaping from Syria with his sister, he finds himself working in atrocious conditions somewhere in Scotland. When his sister disappears, he begins a perilous journey to find her, across some of the wildest terrain in Scotland.
Mia is also on the run, and sometimes it feels as if she will never stop running. When she helps Hani escape from his captors, the two become inseparable. Her dream is to reach the island where she was last happy, when her parents were alive, and find the little house she believes they still own. Once we reach the island, she tells Hani, everything will be okay.
But their journey takes them into dangerous landscapes, hunted by dangerous men, chased through a system of underground flooded caverns while a great storm sweeps the coast. Whatever happens, Mia knows that she must help Hani to find his sister. What they will really find at the end of their journey may come as a surprise to both of them.

    Celebrate the inspirational story of Jesus' Resurrection recorded especially for young children and families! Young readers will learn about Jesus' last week of life and about how He died for our sins. The Easter story shows Jesus riding into the city of Jerusalem on a donkey with people shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!” Next, Jesus is in the temple and turns over tables because the people were not worshipping God.  Jesus celebrates with His disciples at the last supper and then prays in the Garden. Soon, soldiers arrest Jesus as He is betrayed by Judas. Jesus is taken to Pontius Pilate, who wants to release Jesus, but the people insist that He be crucified.  Jesus dies on a cross and His body is placed in a large tomb.  Even though a huge stone covers the entrance and soldiers guard the tomb, Jesus overcomes death.  When two women, both named Mary, come to the tomb, the stone is rolled away.  They discover that Jesus is alive and go and tell His disciples. Titles in the Bible Stories Series include: In the Beginning, Noah and the Ark, Two By Two, Rise and Shine, Jonah and the Whale, Daniel and the Lions' Den, David and Goliath, The Story of Esther, All About Jesus, Miracles of Jesus, Jesus Loves The Little Children, The Lord Is My Shepherd, and The Easter Story.

And maybe Chérie has the strength to deal with it after all, and even to change some of the bad to good...
