Summary

In A. D. 70, the Roman commander Titus marched through Palestine, leveling the once beautiful city of Jerusalem. For Samah, a young Samaritan woman caught inside Titus's siege wall, it was the beginning of three years of suffering with other residents of the holy city. Now, though, having unwittingly saved the life of a dog belonging to a powerful Roman tribune, Samah finds herself bound for Rome as the dog owner's slave. Did Jehovah send this dog simply to help Samah reach an arrogant tribune with the truth of His Word? Or could there be more to their unusual relationship?

    A young Amish couple gets a second chance at love in New York Times bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray’s final book in her Return to Sugarcreek series. 
    Randall Beiler is doing his best to put his family and the farm’s needs first, even forsaking love. But though he tries, Randall knows he needs help caring for his younger siblings and keeping the house together. 
    When his brother offers pretty Elizabeth Nolt a job taking care of the house and cooking for the family, Randall is furious—and guilty about the way he once broke Elizabeth’s heart. But when he learns that Elizabeth and her grandmother are struggling to make ends meet, he knows the offer, no matter how painful, is the right thing for everyone. 
    Elizabeth wants to refuse—to stay far away from the man who hurt her—but she needs the money. Though she vows to protect her heart, spending time in the Beiler household makes Elizabeth realize that, while she’s older and wiser, her love for Randall still burns strong. 
    Randal, too, seems to want something more. But does he want Elizabeth because he truly loves her—or because he needs a housekeeper? If Randall sincerely wants something more, he must find a way to show Elizabeth—or risk losing his chance at love forever. 
    Joyful includes a P.S. section with a letter from the author, discussion questions, and a teaser from her next book.

    Oluwo Philip Neimark, author of The Way of The Orisa, The Sacred Ifa Oracle and the Energy Matrix of Ifa, has chosen a path less traveled. Initiated into Santeria/Lukumi and subsequently finding the "root" religion of Ifa into which he was also initiated, he has constantly pushed the bubble to keep Ifa/Orisha relevant.Stripping away the Western incursions on this Eastern philosophy, he has forced initiates to examine their world view not as something fixed and immobile, but as something that takes its ancient truths and weaves them into the social, political,environmental situations of today's world. The result is a dynamic LIVING philosophy whose Truths have absolute relevance and whose applications have no end.

    “It is not just a ruby, as you say. It is large as a quail’s egg, still untouched and unpolished. And it is rumored to either bless or curse whoever possesses it.”
     
    Camille Iverness can take care of herself. She’s done so since the day her mother abandoned the family and left Camille to run their shabby curiosity shop. But when a violent betrayal leaves her injured with no place to hide, Camille must allow a mysterious stranger to come to her aid.
     
    Jonathan Gilchrist never wanted to inherit Kettering Hall. As a second son, he was content to work as the village apothecary. But when his brother’s death made him heir just as his father’s foolish decisions put the estate at risk, only the sale of a priceless possession—a ruby called the Bevoy—can save the family from ruin. But the gem has disappeared. And all trails lead to Iverness Curiosity Shop—and the beautiful shop girl who may be the answer to his many questions.
     
    Caught at the intersection of blessings and curses, greed and deceit, these two determined souls must unite to protect what they hold dear. But when a passion that shines far brighter than any gem is ignited, they will have to decide how much they are willing to risk for their future, love, and happiness.

    What must we do when all the possibly known resources are used and lead nowhere? What must we do when we have a college degree and can’t find a job? Or, when we are born in a poor and violent environment and don’t get a chance to change our life? Are we truly being realistic when claiming that life is unfair and we’re unable to alter it for reasons that are presented within our eyesight, because of an economic situation or the fate we receive at birth, whatever that means? 
    Although this book doesn’t intend to indoctrinate the reader in the belief that there are solutions to the previous questions, it will guide, step by step, regarding finding them by oneself in the fastest way possible, in our own daily life. In these pages, you’ll realize that there are many human skills that you’re not using, many beliefs that you’re not postulating and many options that you’re not really considering, in order to compensate for everything else, creating an equilibrium that brings forth the life you desire the most. 
    There are no limitations to what you can get from applying the techniques and principles presented here. This is truly a window of opportunity to shift your existence towards a completely new direction and give yourself the chance to live the life of your dreams.
