An Atheist's Letters to Heaven is for seekers of truth and anyone interested in being acquainted with the Christian perspective on modern controversies hotly debated in the media, press, academia, and beyond. Moreover, the novel is written to assist believers in leading unbelievers to Christ by putting themselves in their shoes and addressing potential objections in an adequate and practical manner. It is a journey of an atheist (Marawi) who is given the opportunity to reconnect with his now-deceased friend (Melchizedek) in Paradise. Prior to his passing, Melchizedek accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior and pleaded with his friend to do the same to no avail. Over the course of their correspondence, Marawi asks questions and offers counterarguments based on logic, academia, and atheism. Melchizedek, on the other hand, offers a heavenly perspective and occasionally refers to the Scriptures, history, and the realities of life to make his case for the veracity of the Christian faith. It is a novel that takes the objections of atheists into consideration and addresses the most common objections raised by non-Christians. The questions of origin, meaning, morality, and destiny are discussed from divergent paradigms over the course of three years.

‘Wow… I laughed out loud, I cried, I stayed up well into the night reading just a little bit more. I just loved this book so much… I really really loved this book… An absolute joy to read.’ Goodreads Reviewer Sometimes it takes losing something to see where you truly belong. For the past twenty-nine years, Kay Bright’s days have had a familiar rhythm: she works in her husband’s stationery shop hoping to finally sell the legendary gold pen, cooks for her family, tries to remember to practise yoga, and every other month she writes to her best friend, Ursula. Kay could set her calendar by their letters: her heart lifts when the blue airmail envelope, addressed in Ursula’s slanting handwriting, falls gently onto the mat. But now Ursula has stopped writing and everything is a little bit worse. Ursula is the only one who knows Kay’s deepest secret, something that happened decades ago that could tear Kay’s life apart today. She has always been the person Kay relies on. Worried, Kay gets out her shoebox of Ursula’s letters and as she reads, her unease starts to grow. And then at ten o’clock in the morning, Kay walks out of her yellow front door with just a rucksack, leaving her wedding ring on the table... This emotional and heart-warming novel is for anyone who knows it’s never too late to look for happiness. Fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, A Man Called Ove and The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry will fall in love with this feel-good and moving story that shows you that the best friendships truly last forever. Readers are falling totally in love with The Missing Letters of Mrs Bright: ‘Absolutely beautiful! I finished it late last night – I knew I couldn’t stop once I started – with happy tears running down my face! Just beautiful and thought-provoking! A wonderful, heart-warming, life-affirming tale from this fantastic author. Everyone should be reading this… Outstanding. Five stars do not do this book justice… Thank you Beth Miller for this exquisite treasure of a book!’ Bestselling author Renita D’Silva ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘A story that drew me in from the first pages. With tissues clutched in my hand and tears running down my face, I read this book in one sitting. A story that will stay with me.’ NetGalley Reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘I was teary-eyed… A book to truly fall in love with! I couldn’t seem to read this book fast enough. I stayed up way, way too late to finish it. There were parts that actually had me laughing out loud. I haven’t read such a warm-your-heart type of book in a very very long time. I totally recommend it.’ Goodreads Reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘A poignant read and an emotional one. Beautiful doesn’t do it justice. If you read just one book about life make it this one. 10 stars if I could.’ Goodreads Reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Such a touching, heartfelt book; tears a few times. Couldn’t put this one down and finished it in one day… Great, great book!’ Goodreads Reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Oh, what an absolute gem of a book… At several points I definitely had something in my eye, and towards the end, well… All I can say is that it takes a lot for a book to simultaneously make me laugh and need to clear a lump in my throat. This one did it in spades. Highly recommended.’ Goodreads Reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘A very heart-warming, emotional read. Get your tissues ready as you might need them; I certainly did.’ Goodreads Reviewer ‘I stayed up way too late reading this book. My 2 a.m. novel. I laughed out loud and I cried while reading… I cannot wait for more novels from Beth Miller.’ Goodreads Reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Letters to a Dead Friend about Zen

The night Brad Warner learns that his childhood friend Marky has died, Warner is about to speak to a group of Zen students in Hamburg, Germany. It’s the last thing he feels like doing. What he wants to do instead is tell his friend everything he never said, to explain Zen and what he does for a living and why he spends his time “Sitting. Sitting. Sitting. Meditating my life away as it all passes by. Lighting candles and incense. Bowing to nothing.” So, as he continues his teaching tour through Europe, he writes to his friend all the things he wishes he had said. Simply and humorously, he reflects on why Zen provided him a lifeline in a difficult world. He explores grief, attachment, and the afterlife. He writes to Marky, “I’m not all that interested in Buddhism. I’m much more interested in what is true,” and then proceeds to poke and prod at that truth. The result for readers is a singular and winning meditation on Zen — and a unique tribute to both a life lost and the one Warner has found.

'A uniquely charming and enticing journey through a remarkable life. Coward's own record is made all the more delightful by the wise and helpful interpolations of Barry Day, the soundest authority on the Master that there is.' Stephen Fry 'Precise, witty, remarkably observed and gloriously English' Dame Judi Dench 'Barry Day's analysis is both perceptive and irresistible' Lord Richard Attenborough With virtually all the letters in this volume previously unpublished - this is a revealing new insight into the private life of a legendary figure. Coward's multi-faceted talent as an actor, writer, composer, producer and even as a war-time spy(!), brought him into close contact with the great, the good and the merely ambitious in film, literature and politics.With letters to and from the likes of: George Bernard Shaw, Virginia Woolf, Winston Churchill, Greta Garbo (she wrote asking him to marry her), Marlene Dietriech, Ian Fleming, Graham Greene, Evelyn Waugh, Fred Astaire, Charlie Chaplin, FD Roosevelt, the Queen Mother and many more, the picture that emerges is a series of vivid sketches of Noel Coward's private relationships, and a re-examination of the man himself. Deliciously insightful, witty, perfectly bitchy, wise, loving and often surprisingly moving, this extraordinary collection gives us Coward at his crackling best. A sublime portrait of a unique artist who made an indelible mark on the 20th century, from the Blitz to the Ritz and beyond.
