Summary

When Katherine "Kit" FitzGilbert turned her back on London society more than a decade ago, she determined never to set foot in a ballroom again. But when business takes her to London and she's forced to run for her life, she stumbles upon not only a glamorous ballroom but also Graham, Lord Wharton. What should have been a chance encounter becomes much more as Graham embarks on a search for his friend's missing sister and is convinced Kit knows more about the girl than she's telling.After meeting Graham, Kit finds herself wishing things could have been different for the first time in her life, but what she wants can't matter. Long ago, she dedicated herself to helping women escape the same scorn that drove her from London and raising the innocent children caught in the crossfire. And as much as she desperately wishes to tell Graham everything, revealing the truth isn't worth putting him and everyone she loves in danger.

    God was going to save her marriage, Allison was sure of it. But neither her husband nor her marriage had been saved. 
    What had become of His promise? 
    Tony Kavanagh had been Allison’s dream-come-true. They were in love within days, engaged within weeks, married and pregnant within a year. Her cup bubbled over with joy . . . but years later, that joy had been extinguished by unexpected trials. 
    The day Allison issued her husband an ultimatum, she thought it might save him. She never expected he would actually leave. She was certain God had promised to heal; it was clear that she'd misunderstood. 
    Now, living in the quiet mountain cabin she inherited from her single, self-reliant Great Aunt Emma, Allison must come to terms with her grief and figure out how to adapt to small town life. But when she finds a wedding dress and a collection of journals in Emma’s attic, a portrait of her aunt emerges that takes Allison completely by surprise: a portrait of a heartbroken woman surprisingly like herself. 
    As Allison reads the incredible story of Emma’s life in the 1920s and 1930s, she is forced to ask a difficult question: Does she really surrender every piece of her life to the Lord?  
      
    Drawing from her own heart-wrenching story of redemption, A Promise Kept is Robin Lee Hatcher’s emotionally charged thanksgiving to a God who answers prayers—in His own time and His own ways. 
    "Hatcher’s latest is an uplifting and heartwarming story about the power of faith to set people free from the pain of their pasts. Recommended where ­Tracie Peterson’s books (All Things Hidden; The Miner’s Lady) are popular." —Library Journal, STARRED Review

    Three weeks. Three heartbeats. And something eternally life-changing...
     
    'It wasn't just expressing or sharing our loving feelings towards each other, this was about something other than ourselves this time. A magnetizing connection, like lightning bolts through the depths of my soul.'
     
    As Abe and Kira’s love relationship grows closer, she discovers something else she’d thought impossible.
     
    And as Kira realises that angels and dark shadows exist with purpose in a supernatural realm around her, she then finds out there’s also a very real battle brewing in the heavenlies over her soul. The same battle rages in her dreams at night over what she sees there — clues to what she’s searching for.
     
    But will BJ and Abe be there to help save her life, or will the opposition that seeks to acquire her win this time, and also succeed in taking out those closest to her?
     
     
     
    Intense — captivating — a stunning revelation in Kira’s journey in the Rising Sun Saga

    Walk with Those Who Walked with Jesus   In the Gospels we witness the most crucial turning point in world history and the reason we believe what we do. The New Testament begins with four accounts of the “good news” of the Son of God. Drawing on the research of Dallas Theological Seminary scholars, The Bible Knowledge Commentary: Gospels explores similarities and differences among Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The authors also look at difficult or confusing passages, apologetic evidence for these eyewitness accounts, and what we can learn about Christ-like living from observing the life of Jesus.   With dozens of visuals and Old Testament cross-references, this commentary is one of the most thorough and theologically sound studies of the Gospels. Journey with Jesus as if for the first time in this detailed look at His life on earth.

    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.
