Summary

The seventeenth century writer Sir Thomas Browne was an English polymath and author of varied works, revealing his wide learning in diverse fields, including science and medicine, religion and the esoteric. His most famous work is ‘Religio Medici’, a journal principally concerning the mysteries of God, nature and man, which he described as “a private exercise directed to myself.” It was an immediate success and was soon circulated widely in Europe. Noted for his melancholia tone, Browne’s works are characterised by an inimitable wit and subtle humour, offering a literary style that is both varied and polished with Baroque eloquence. This comprehensive eBook presents Browne’s complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)

    If any place on God's earth was designed to help one heal, it is Meadowland. Surely here, at her brother-in-law's Kentucky farm, Rose and her daughters can recover from the events of the recent past--the loss of her husband during the 1918 influenza epidemic, her struggle with tuberculosis that required a stay at a sanatorium, and her girls' experience in an orphanage during her illness. At Meadowland, hope blooms as their past troubles become rich soil in which their faith can grow. 
     
    Dirk Meadows may have opened his home to his late brother's widow and her girls, but he keeps his heart tightly closed. The roots of his pain run deep, and the evidence of it is written across his face. Badly scarred by a fire and abandoned by the woman he loved, Dirk fiercely guards his heart from being hurt again. But it may be that his visitors will bring light back into his world and unlock the secret to true healing. 
     
    Bestselling author Ann H. Gabhart explores the tender places within the human heart in this character-driven story of trusting God to turn our burdens into something beautiful.
