Summary

A historical romance set in 1873.  Darcie Robbins fled St. Louis to protect her two children from their bad father. Now divorced, she’s temporarily working on the Bar E Ranch in central Kansas. She needs a permanent job—or a trustworthy husband—to help provide for her family. 
Reuben Shepard went home to his family in New York after the Civil War, to find his wife had declared him dead—so she could wed another. In shock, Reuben didn’t contest her claim and wandered south, spending years as a cattle drover on western trails until settling down to work on the Bar E Ranch. 
Spending time with Darcie’s toddler, Tate, makes Reuben miss his own son, Gabe. Reuben travels to New York, hoping to visit his son, and ends up bringing Gabe back to the Kansas because the boy’s step-father had just died. 
When Reuben proposes marriage to Darcie for their children’s sake, the couple falls in love as they learn to trust and support each other while planning for their future. But their wedding is stalled when Reuben’s former wife arrives, stating she and Reuben are still married.  
What’s the truth and what’s best for the children is their concern now instead of a wedding date. How can they clear the past so they can have a future together?

    A terrifying past imprisoned Maxine Bartlett all her adult life, shackling her with fear anytime a man even touched her. 
    In a spontaneous weekend, she unintentionally elopes with an unlikely groom. After a magical wedding night filled with love and passion, "Maxi" finally discards her dreadful chains. 
    She doesn't know that her new husband has turned his back on God. Worried over how the world might see the completely unexpected – and some would certainly say inappropriate – marriage, in his pride he promises Maxine a quiet annulment. 
    Unwilling to let their marriage disappear as if it never happened, Maxine refuses to cooperate.

As the days stretch into weeks, the newlyweds slowly begin to trust and even love each other. 
    Then, just as they begin to live the "happily ever after" love story that neither of them ever dreamed could come true, a sudden and nightmarish catastrophe strikes that could wreck everything. Will her husband realize that he must trust God once more? Can he find peace and strength enough to carry them through the flames?

    Bestselling author Larry Crabb cuts to the heart of the biblical view of marriage: the "one-flesh" relationship. He argues convincingly that the deepest needs of human personality—security and significance—ultimately cannot be satisfied by a marriage partner. We need to turn to the Lord, rather than our spouse, to satisfy our needs. This frees both partners for "soul oneness," a commitment to minister to our spouse's needs rather than manipulating them to meet our own needs. With "soul oneness" comes renewed "body oneness," where couples enjoy sexual pleasure as an expression and outgrowth of a personal relationship. The Marriage Builder also identifies three building blocks essential to constructing marriage: the grace of God, true marriage commitment, and acceptance of one's mate. Discussion questions are included to aid couples who want to dig into it and apply the principles to their own lives and marriages. The Marriage Builder is for anyone who longs to transform marriage from trial to triumph.

    Yogachara, The Purity of Direct Experience, by Dr. Lee Embrey, is a modern interpretation of an ancient yogic method long since neglected, yet particularly relevant today. Focused on the ultimate goal of yoga—realization in the divine bliss of Love-Light-Consciousness—this book reinterprets the meaning and practice of the four main types of yoga: Raja (yoga through mind control), Hatha (yoga through bodily postures), Jnana (using thought to transcend thought), and Bhakti (rites, rituals, scriptural recitations, worship and devotional exercises). Taken together, these four are called the school of Yogachara. All four types need to be developed together to produce harmony within the personality. To that end, the author integrates them with Jungian personality-typology: Raja Yoga links to the Intuitive Type; Jnana Yoga, to the Thinking Type; Bhakti Yoga, to the Feeling Type; and Hatha Yoga, to the Sensation Type. 
    Yogachara introduces a wider, deeper menu of ways of thinking than you ordinarily may be familiar with: Associative, Focused, Conceptual and Pre-Conceptual, Cognitive, Reflective, Concrete vs. Symbolic, Contemplative, Creative Thinking and Thinking in “O,” and Spirit Thought (the “Great Thoughts,” big ideas of an epoch).         
    Experiential as well as discursive, this book offers readers specific, evocative meditations and exercises to experience all four levels comprising Yogachara, addressing: relaxation; breath; extroverted and introverted visions of the universe; opening the heart; sound; connecting with Oneness; light; giving love to your partner; projecting love and gratitude to the world; the yoga of sleep; intuition; and hatha yoga poses). 
    By combining the best elements of yogic spirituality into a harmonious, easy-to-follow everyday practice, the author seeks to bring this action of revitalization and redefinition to the reader in the form of Yogachara as a “new” yogic system of spiritual practice. And in the end, the book leads us closer to where we most want to be: “Becoming Real.”
