Summary

After her father lost the family's fortune, Wilhelmina was cast out of the fashionable set and banished to the wallflower section. Taking a position as a social secretary to help support her family, she's mostly come to terms with her new status. But when her old friend Edgar returns to New York society for the first time since she rejected his marriage proposal, she's newly ashamed at how far she's fallen--and how hastily she dismissed him years ago. Her strategy is to avoid a face-to-face encounter at all costs, but he seems to have other plans. Will Edgar take advantage of their now reversed positions and make her regret her refusal, or is there still hope for a friendship between them--or something more?At Your Request is an e-only novella that gives an exciting introduction to Jen Turano's new Gilded Age historical romance series, Apart From the Crowd! Includes an extended excerpt of the first full-length novel in the series, Behind the Scenes.

    Let the Psalms help you forge a deeper connection to the Divine.              
     Showing how the Psalms give profound and                 candid expression to both our highest aspirations and our                 deepest pain, the late, highly respected Cistercian Abbot M.                 Basil Pennington shares his reflections on some of the most                 beloved passages from the Bible’s most widely read book.                 In this companion volume to The Song of Songs: A Spiritual                 Commentary, Pennington is once again joined by Jewish artist                 Phillip Ratner, whose evocative works will lead you into more                 meaningful contemplation of the inner spirit of the Psalms.              
    Pennington describes how the monastic                 tradition of regular reflection on the Psalms—a technique                 St. Benedict called the “work of God,” or Opus                 Dei—can help you transform your everyday life into a                 powerful life of prayer. Enriched by Jewish and Christian                 faith, the drawings and meditations speak to every person                 wanting both to connect with their most human longings and to                 forge a vital connection with the Divine.

    Emotionally Healthy Spirituality...

    One percent of church leaders say that they are doing well in discipling new and young believers. After almost three decades of pastoring New Life Fellowship Church in the bustle of New York City, Peter Scazzero discovered that most people are not being changed in our churches, and, as a result, are not changing the world. 
    Scazzero found two truths to be true: you can't be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature, and unless you slow and quiet your life down for a first-hand relationship with Jesus Christ, little change is possible. The integration of these two truths unleashed a spiritual revolution in Scazzero, in his church, and now in thousands of other churches. 
    In this revised bestselling book, Scazzero outlines his journey and offers a roadmap for a discipleship with Jesus that is powerfully transformative. Topics include how to identify emotionally unhealthy spirituality, how to grow your soul through grief and loss, and how to develop into an emotionally mature adult. 
    Offering new stories and principles, this updated edition will inspire readers to revolutionize their spiritual life.
