A GARDA, A FORCED ADOPTION, A FIGHT FOR JUSTICE In 1984, Majella Moynihan was a fresh-faced young garda recruit when she gave birth to a baby boy. Charged with breaching An Garda Síochána's disciplinary rules - for having premarital sex with another guard, becoming pregnant, and having a child - she was pressured to give up her baby for adoption, or face dismissal. It forced her into a decision that would have devastating impacts on her life. Majella left the force in 1998 after many difficult years and, in 2019, following an RTÉ documentary on her case, she received an apology from the Garda Commissioner and Minister for Justice for the ordeal she endured as a young garda. Here, for the first time, she tells the full story. From an institutional childhood after the death of her mother when she was a baby, to realising her vocation of becoming a guard only to confront the reality of a police culture steeped in misogyny and prejudice, A Guarded Life is both a courageous personal account of hope and resilience in the darkest times, and a striking reflection on womanhood and autonomy in modern Ireland.

Lauren Douglas never imagined she would wake up one day and find herself the star of the hottest soap on daytime television. But as wholesome, smart and lovely Dr. Kate, she is plastered over the media as a role model and inspiration for young women. Just as she is about to sign a bloated new contract, Lauren is publicly outed. Scrambling for damage control, her father, a Congressman, wants her banished abroad and her network writes her temporarily out of the show in a plane crash. As if the slavering press doesn't have enough to report, a creepy fan enraged by the revelation, shoots her. All of which means zip to FBI Special Agent Pat Roussel, whose hunt for the Kiddy Pageant Killer has consumed every waking moment for three years. Suffering from burnout, and hoping fresh new eyes might come up with a break in the case, Pat reluctantly elects to take a few months leave without pay. The last thing she expects to find herself doing in her time off is an illicit private security gig babysitting a celebrity. Fourth in the Moon Island Series

This book brings together ideas and materials which we have discussed together over the years as friends and colleagues. We draw on four papers published by us both as co-authors and on several more papers published by King-Farlow alone. We wish to thank the editors and publishers of the following journals for permission to make use of matter or points which have appeared in their pages in the years indicated: The Philosophical Quarterly (1957, 1962, 1971); The Thomist (1958, 1971, 1972); The Inter national Philosophical Quarterly (1962); Theoria (1963); The Southern Journal of Philosophy (1963); Sophia (1965, 1967, 1969,1971); Philosoph ical Studies of Eire (1968, 1970, 1971); Philosophy and Phenomenological Research (1968); Analysis (1970); Religious Studies (Cambridge University Press, 1971; we acknowledge a debt to H. D. Lewis, Editor, on page 20). This book is not, however, a collection of reprinted articles. It is a continuous work which deals with a vital cluster of problems in the philosophy of religion. In this work we attempt to utilize both our earlier thoughts, often considerably revised, and our very recent ones in order to argue for the good sense and rationality of making certain strong forms of commitment to some basic elements of primary wisdom in the Judaeo Christian tradition. While pursuing the investigations which have led to the writing of this book we have found ourselves becoming indebted to many individuals and institutions.

When Christian Cervello and Isabella Montes meet, more than romantic sparks fly. There’s a greater purpose to their meeting: Isabella holds the key to unlocking the secrets of a curse that has haunted Christian’s family for half a century. Not only have generations of family members died, but the lives of Christian and his sister, Rachel, may be at risk, as even those closest to the Cervellos plot against them. Set amid the lush homes of Key Biscayne, Florida, and in São Paulo, Brazil, Drifting Fines explores one family’s battle against the evil that surrounds them. Can Christian, whose brilliant mind sometimes plays tricks on him, overcome his own weaknesses? Or will his tendency to place his trust in the wrong people drive away Isabella and doom his whole family?

When a shadowy Chinese messenger appears at the door of Alfred Smith, a top geneticist and gives him a package that contains the newly discovered "Scrolls of Adamis" nothing in his life will be the same. If authentic, these papers will explode all the accepted theories of Darwinism, our most precious religious doctrines and even Creation itself. It will draw mankind into a new kind of "War of the Worlds" that will threaten our continued existence. More momentous than the "Dead Sea Scrolls" it will redefine the very existence of God. Only Alfred, his beautiful scientific associate, Ming Loo, held prisoner in China and an eccentric Professor from Duke University stand in the way of Earth's domination by an all powerful alien force that have already conquered our minds, infiltrated our DNA with their powerful genes and have patiently waited since our creation to complete their conquest. After countless eons, just 100 years are left for most of us on Earth and our descendents. After that all would disappear except for a chosen few. Only this unlikely trio has any chance of stopping them.
