    In London during the Blitz, an amnesiac must outwit a twisted Nazi plot in this “master thriller” of espionage, murder, and deception (Time).   On a peaceful Sunday afternoon, Arthur Rowe comes upon a charity fete in the gardens of a Cambridgeshire vicarage where he wins a game of chance. If only this were an ordinary day. Britain is under threat by Germany, and the air raid sirens that bring the bazaar to a halt expose Rowe as no ordinary man. Recently released from a psychiatric prison for the mercy killing of his wife, he is burdened by guilt, and now, in possession of a seemingly innocuous prize, on the run from a nest of Nazi spies who want him dead.   Pursued on a dark odyssey through the bombed-out streets of London, he becomes enmeshed in a tangle of secrets that reach into the dark recesses of his own forgotten past. And there isn’t a soul he can trust, not even himself. Because Arthur Rowe doesn’t even know who he really is.   “A storyteller of genius,” Graham Greene composed his serpentine mystery of authentic wartime espionage—and one the author’s personal favorites—while working for MI6 (Evelyn Waugh). But The Ministry of Fear “is more than a mere thriller . . . [it’s a] hypnotic moonstone of a novel” (The New York Times).

    When her husband Liam is killed by a car bomb while their Celtic band is on tour in Charleston, singer and Irish beauty Alanna doesn’t quite know where to turn. Her father-in-law is threatening to take custody of the baby she carries, but Alanna knows she can’t lose the only piece of Liam she has left.

    Strange things begin happening that threaten Alanna’s life and the life of her child. Are they merely coincidences? Or is something more sinister at work? 
    A mysterious painting, a haunting melody, and a love stronger than death leave Alanna questioning where darkness ends and light begins.

    What do 33% of  American women have in common?  They've experienced abortion.
     
    You might be one of  these women. Or maybe it's your friend, sister, coworker, or the woman sitting  next to you at church. Regardless, post-abortive women are in pain, and at some  point, most will experience post-abortion syndrome (PAS), a form of post  traumatic stress disorder. But they may never talk about it. Many are silent  because they are filled with shame, grief and guilt, afraid of judgment and  condemnation.  Few realize that peace is attainable through  Christ's mourning process and the knowledge that because of His grace, they  will reunite with their lost loved ones in Heaven.
     
    Her Choice to Heal is designed to help  women find a way to God's healing after this devastating choice.  Written by a post-abortive woman, it includes  testimonies of strength, healing and hope.  Sydna compassionately  leads you on the difficult journey through denial, anger, and grief, to  forgiveness, redemption, and letting go.  Her Choice to Heal offers a roadmap to healing - practical  suggestions, resources for help, space to journal, with the encouragement and  hope found in Christ alone.
