My Sister s Keeper Movie Tie In

Present Day There is a curious thing that happens with the passage of time: a
calcification of character. See, if the light hits Brian's face the right way, I can still
see the pale blue hue of his eyes that has always made me think of an island
ocean I had yet to swim ... Change isn't always for the worst; the shell that forms
around a piece of sand looks to some people like an irritation, and to others, like
a pearl.

Mace Llewellyn. Brendon Shaw. Two tall, gorgeous, sexy alpha heroes who are 100% male—with a little something extra. Lion-shifters, to be exact, who can unleash every woman's animal side and still look good—make that spectacular—in a suit. . .and even better out of it. . . NYPD cop Desiree "Dez" MacDermot knows she's changed a lot since she palled around with her childhood buddy, Mace. But it's fair to say that Mace has changed even more. It isn't just those too-sexy gold eyes, or the six-four, built-like-a-Navy Seal body. It's something in the way he sniffs her neck and purrs, making her entire body tingle. . . Meanwhile, for Tennessean Ronnie Lee Reed, New York City is the place where any girl—even one who runs with a Pack—can redefine herself. First order of business: find a mate, settle down, and stop using men for sex. Even big, gorgeous, lion shifter men like Brendon Shaw. But she needn't worry, because now that Brendon's set his sights on her, the predator in him is ready to pounce and never let go. . .

Slavery is not a crime confined to the far reaches of history. It is an injustice that continues to entrap twenty-seven million people across the globe. Laura Murphy offers close to forty survivor narratives from Cambodia, Ghana, Lebanon, Macedonia, Mexico, Russia, Thailand, Ukraine, and the United States, detailing the horrors of a system that forces people to work without pay and against their will, under the threat of violence, with little or no means of escape. Representing a variety of circumstances in diverse contexts, these survivors are the Frederick Douglasses, Sojourner Truths, and Olaudah Equianos of our time, testifying to the widespread existence of a human rights tragedy and the urgent need to address it. Through storytelling and firsthand testimony, this anthology shapes a twenty-first-century narrative that many believe died with the end of slavery in the Americas. Organized around such issues as the need for work, the punishment of defiance, and the move toward activism, the collection isolates the causes, mechanisms, and responses to slavery that allow the phenomenon to endure. Enhancing scholarship in women's studies, sociology, criminology, law, social work, and literary studies, the text establishes a common trajectory of vulnerability, enslavement, captivity, escape, and recovery, creating an invaluable resource for activists, scholars, legislators, and service providers.

teachings from the Bible. Some of the stories are pretty hilarious; and others are sad and sorrowful. Her life story will have you laughing, then crying-and then pausing for a moment, to contemplate what it means to have faith. The amazing story of her mother's faith to still find her two kidnapped sons is beyond anybody's compelling imagination. These stories in Tecla's life makes you re-examine your own beliefs, and then seek a clearer path in your travels as well as filled with a desire to live by faith. You will certainly learn how to grow into your own absolute potential, simply by following God's directions. You will also discover that life's greatest accomplishment is doing the will of God, by tapping into your faith. ______________________________ I've had the distinct pleasure of copy-editing this book and offering suggestions on its form; I found the task both inspirational and heart-rending. Tecla's story (like that of her mother, as briefly summarized in the first chapter, dedicated to that strong and faith-filled woman) will certainly lift the spirits of any reader currently walking through the Fires of adversity and life-challenges. It also motivates us to reflect on the (comparatively mild) obstacles we may encounter in our daily lives, to find the courage to rise above them, in partnership with God and our Faith, and to move forward along our own Highway of Holiness.-Steve Trinward, Editor

In the second part of his childhood recollections, the writer recalls the summer of 1965. It was a time of the Vietnam War, the Beatles and their Ticket to Ride and the start of package holidays. It was also the time the writer took a holiday cruise with his family. His memories revolve around just four photographs - all that's left of the family mementoes. Was it a golden time for travel? Was it a holiday of a lifetime? Was it really as exciting as it sounded? And could an eleven-year-old stay out of trouble? Amidst the deck quoits, excursions and fancy dress competitions, he starts to question his own motives; is he retracing his steps for pleasure or is it guilt for having disposed of the family archives? In an attempt to retrace his steps, he boards a modern-day luxury cruiser and makes some intriguing discoveries.
