Summary

Jasmine is naively unprepared for her Saint Valentine's unceremonious breakup; naively unprepared for the university internship horrors awaiting her at Mozartstraße 9; spectacularly unprepared too for the news she discovers that had spread like demonic wildfire throughout the world's press; and wholly unprepared for the second-floor ward at the Psychiatric Department of the Vienna City Hospital. 
Dan is fully aware of his sense of self after divorce and the loss of his daughter. His self-sabotaged lifestyle of international travel - fuelled by various addictions - comes to a head when he meets a woman-in-recovery on the Camino de Santiago. And he begins a Road to Damascus journey of empathic recovery; falling in love with the woman who, by age, could have been his daughter.  
Their path remains brief, however, with one eloping home like a sunflower turning for its sunrise, while the other falls deeper into depression with no distance left to walk at the coastal terminal the ancient Romans considered the end of the world: Finisterre. But despite their respective free will choices, neither will ever remain completely unshackled from the obsessive, sadistic impulses of the Kierkegaard Killer.

After her parents died, raising her two younger sisters became her responsibility.

So when she and her sisters arrive at the Whitman mission in "Oregon Country," she decides to stay rather than push on. With the help of Alex Armistead, a French-American fur trapper, Grace begins to provide care for her neighbors, including some of the native populace.

    Two men offer Leila two very different futures. Will she choose with her heart or with her faith? 
    Leila Lantz has been in love with Jesse Glick from the day she first saw him at his father’s store, but she can’t make sense of his intentions. One day he wants to come courting, the next he seems to be putting distance between them. 
    Jesse may be the bishop’s son, but his faith has been wavering of late. If he is so unsure, is it fair to give Leila false hope for a future he doubts he can provide? 
    Then there’s Will, Jesse’s cousin. He has been trying to keep his feelings for Leila a secret, but he also knows Jesse is wrestling with his faith. Would declaring his feelings for Leila be in her best interest or simply serving his own selfish desires? 
    Leila knows she can choose Will and be secure in her own future. But when her heart speaks, it’s Jesse’s name she hears. When will God make His will known to her? Could leaving everything she knows—even her own faith—be a part of God’s plan?

    The Gnostic Gospels of Jesus -...

    For all those readers curious to read the actual texts of the Gnostic Gospels, here is the definitive collection of all the Gnostic Gospels and Gospel–like texts.  
     o Marvin Meyer, premier scholar of Gnostic and other Christian literature outside the New Testament, presents every Gnostic Gospel and Jesus text with a brilliant overall introduction, introductions to each text, and notes that explain everything the reader needs to know to understand the text. He includes his latest translations of not only the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Philip, the Gospel of Mary, but other texts such as the Secret Book of John, which some scholars regard as the second part of the New Testament Gospel of John. The material is largely from the discovery at Nag Hammadi, freshly translated and introduced, but also includes texts found elsewhere. The texts, especially taken together, present an image of Jesus as the ultimate wisdom teacher, a kind of mysterious Jewish Zen master, who scandalized listeners by his radical egalitarianism (regarding women, slaves, the poor, the marginalized as of equal status, or more, with establishment male believers) and his insistence on living the message, spiritual experience, vs. outer observance only.  
     o For those wanting to learn more after reading The Da Vinci Code. This book provides the definitive next book for those looking for expert presentation of the alternative Gnostic stream of Christianity, in which there is no talk of crucifixion and Mary Magdalene is presented as the disciple that Jesus loved best. "Marv is one of the original secret gospels scholars who has done an enormous amount of work to bring these texts to light. All of his research on the Nag Hammadi texts is having an incredible impact on our knowledge of early Christian history––it is virtually redefining it." ––Dr. Elaine Pagels, Princeton University
