Echoes in the Darkness Book Excerpt:

On June 25, 1989, the naked corpse of schoolteacher Susan Reinert was found wedged into her hatchback car in a hotel parking lot near Philadelphia's "Main Line." Her two children had vanished. The Main Line Murder Case burst upon the headlines--and wasn't resolved for seven years. Now, master crime writer Joseph Wambaugh reconstructs the case from its roots, recounting the details, drama, players and pawns in this bizarre crime that shocked the nation and tore apart a respectable suburban town. The massive FBI and state police investigation ultimately centered on two men. Dr. Jay C. Smith--By day he was principal of Upper Merion High School where Susan Reinert taught. At night he was a sadist who indulged in porno, drugs, and weapons. William Bradfield--He was a bearded and charismatic English teacher and classics scholar, but his real genius was for juggling women--three at a time. One of those women was Susan Reinert. How these two men are connected, how the brilliant murder was carried off, and how the investigators closed this astounding case makes for Wambaugh's most compelling book yet.

An Echo in the Darkness Book Excerpt:

Book 2 in the 3-book historical Christian fiction series by the New York Times bestselling author of Redeeming Love and A Voice in the Wind. From Francine Rivers comes the “compelling” and “emotionally charged” (Booklist, starred review) second installment in of the story of Hadassah, a courageous Christian slave girl with unrelenting faith, and Marcus, the Roman aristocrat who claims her heart. Believed dead, Hadassah finds employment helping a doctor in the poor section of first-century Rome and discovers an ability to heal others through the power of her faith. When Julia falls ill, Hadassah is forced to confront a difficult decision: should she return to the Valerian household, risking exposure and death, to help her former tormentor in the Christian tradition? Continuing to search for meaning and faith, Marcus turns away from the opulence of Rome, led by a whispering voice from the past into a journey that could set him free from the darkness of his soul. Includes discussion questions suitable for individual use or group discussions. “Francine unlocks the longing in each one of us to connect to God in a deeper, life-changing way. No one reading her books will ever be the same again.” —Debbie Macomber “As we ‘watch’ Hadassah and Atretes struggle through first-century trials, we learn how to handle similar situations in the twenty-first century. The ‘costumes’ may vary, but our Lord does not change.” —Angela Hunt “Francine redefined Christian fiction—honest, unflinching, powerful, life-changing—demonstrating why storytelling is the most effective way to communicate God’s truth. Every Christian novelist writing today owes a debt of gratitude to Francine Rivers for lighting the way.” —Liz Curtis Higgs “Francine Rivers writes from her heart to touch the hearts of her readers. Her books are essential reading for all who love Christian fiction.” —Bodie Thoene “Francine Rivers puts readers right into the history of the moment.” —Romantic Times

Echoes in the Darkness Book Excerpt:

Cheyenne's body suddenly without warning began turning against her with fierce and haunting attacks of ravaging pain and fear ripping through her with such vengence that with each onslaught she thought that she was surely losing her mind. It wasn't her mind that she was losing though, it was her mind and memory that she was gaining as her subconscious was battling to give her consciousness the details of a past so traumatic that her conscious couldn't deal with the reality, and stored all of the horror into the subconscious memory bank away from the devastation that the knowlege would have caused her. She had been safe for many years until recently, when out of nowhere a juggernaut jolted her subconscious and cracked open the contents as it struggled to come out of hiding to reek havoc once more on the mind and soul of the quiet, sullen and withdrawn cheyenne. With the emotional storm at hand, trying to crest, Cheyenne began investigating her own hauntings, only to find out the truth about herself, and what her deceiving parents had tried to keep buried for so long. With each clue and truth, others did whatever they could do to stop her from discovering her past, and finding out who was responsible. Her rewards at the end of this trecherous journey was a great love, the conviction of those who tried to destroy her, and a very special person enters her life. A very poignant story.

Chain Letter to America the One Thing You Can Do to End Racism Book Excerpt:

What this book is about is raising conscious awareness to our collective humanity and respective contributions to our country, with added focus on our multiculturalism and fundamentally our shared...constitutional ideology: that we are all created equal... In the midst of political and racial divisions in America, I heard a republican congressman speaking to the media, he said: “With open eyes, open ears, open mind and you walk away with some understanding...” while honoring our first amendment right to freedom of expression...through open minded and open hearted conversations... If you take one thing away from reading this book, I hope it’s that our numerous races, ethnicities, beliefs and values manifested through comparative historical and contextual exploration can serve as a miscible advantage or a harmonious mixture when added together ... a reconciliatory nod to our past and a meditative extrapolation, interjection and celebration of our ...United States or ‘US’. Enjoy!” Praise for Jacques Fleury’s “Chain Letter to America...” “A powerful strike on the doors of Justice. The courageous author painted his vision, and suggested understanding and consciousness of our historic and present social reality. Before anybody from any medical society in the Roman Empire, a descendant of a slave performed the first major open heart surgery in America. There is an axiom: ‘Know the cause of the illness, and you will be able to apply the proper medicine.’ I know this: When we understand that we are the Human Race, there will be no place on Earth for Eris and Ares. Please, keep fueling the wings of Your Quill, and let the world know that it soars safely ~ blown by winds of reality, and aesthetical light. In reverent appreciation...” —Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU --Poet, Translator “Quite a tirade of prose and poetry of the state of the United States in the early 21st century. I thought we would be beyond all that, but it has come back to haunt us. I was enthralled with every word. Jacques Fleury’s scholarship and writing ability are far above the average. Really worth paying attention to...a metaphor for refugees from all kinds of calamities trying to find a safe place, a calm place in their life where they can rest and think of the life around them... Inspiring words about the harshness and beauty... all around us ... Fleury really said a load in this broadly sweeping exposé of modern life awakening. It’s good to see his superlative writing again... Kudos!” —Ronald W. Hull, Ed.D, Author of Hanging by a Thread “I grew up in a black, white, and yellow world... Differences in color and nationality are what makes life interesting. I go to a very diverse church because I know that’s what Heaven is going to be like... as for color, I am not blind but I am so grateful the Lord made us diverse as it’s a blessing and not a curse. In His eyes, all of us matter. I Praise Him for giving me such wisdom.” — Dr. John M. Domino Author of Reflections from the Great Depression and WWII “Polarization and violence in our country make increasingly urgent a greater understanding of our history. No one can confidently predict that things will return to ‘normal’, or that non-racist forces will seamlessly replace President Trump after his one or two terms in office. So what lessons and what inspiration from our past can we draw upon to help us in our present circumstance?” —Neil Calendar, Adjunct Professor of English, Roxbury Community College

Groundwork Book Excerpt:

An illuminating look at a fundamental yet understudied aspect of Italian Renaissance painting The Italian Renaissance picture is renowned for its depiction of the human figure, from the dramatic foreshortening of the body to create depth to the subtle blending of tones and colors to achieve greater naturalism. Yet these techniques rely on a powerful compositional element that often goes overlooked. Groundwork provides the first in-depth examination of the complex relationship between figure and ground in Renaissance painting. “Ground” can refer to the preparation of a work’s surface, the fictive floor or plane, or the background on which figuration occurs. In laying the material foundation, artists perform groundwork, opening the ground as a zone that can precede, penetrate, or fracture the figure. David Young Kim looks at the work of Gentile da Fabriano, Giovanni Bellini, Giovanni Battista Moroni, and Caravaggio, reconstructing each painter’s methods to demonstrate the intricacies involved in laying ground layers whose translucency and polychromy permeate the surface. He charts significant transitions from gold ground painting in the Trecento to the darkened grounds in Baroque tenebrism, and offers close readings of period texts to shed new light on the significance of ground forms such as rock face, wall, and cave. This beautifully illustrated book reconceives the Renaissance picture, revealing the passion and mystery of groundwork and discovering figuration beyond the human figure.

Echoes in the Darkness Book Excerpt:

Not betrothed, but beguiled In artistic circles she is the Divine Dita, Paris's most sought-after nude model. But now she's not so much posing as playing a role: fiancée to the next earl of Athal. The charade is a favor to Dita's friend, Eddie Jago, a dissolute painter…and the aforementioned heir. As deceptions go, it is innocent compared to what will come. On the grim Cornish coast, from the ashes of a ruined castle rises the Jagos' sumptuous new manor house. The fresh-hewn stone, however, cannot absorb the blood of centuries or quiet the echoes of past crimes. Dita struggles to decipher the family: the infirm earl and his inscrutable wife; resentful Eddie; sheltered sister Eleanor. And Cad: the handsome second son whose reputation is spotless in business—scandalous everywhere else. Drawn by friendship, ensnared by lust, Dita uncovers a sordid tangle of murder, desire and madness. It will lay her bare as no portraitist has done before.
