The Italian Ballerina Book Excerpt:

At the height of the Nazi occupation of Rome, an unlikely band of heroes comes together to save innocent lives in this breathtaking World War II novel based on real historical events. Rome, 1943. With the fall of Italy’s Fascist government and the Nazi regime occupying the streets of Rome, British ballerina Julia Bradbury is stranded and forced to take refuge at a hospital on Tiber Island. But when she learns of a deadly sickness sweeping through the quarantine wards—a fake disease known only as Syndrome K—she is drawn into one of the greatest cons in history. Alongside hospital staff, friars of the adjoining church, and two Allied medics, Julia risks everything to rescue Jewish Italians from the deadly clutches of the Holocaust. Soon a little girl who dreams of becoming a ballerina arrives at their door, and Julia is determined to reunite the young dancer with her family—if only she would reveal one crucial secret: her name. Present Day. Delaney Coleman recently lost her grandfather—a beloved small-town doctor and World War II veteran, so she returns home to help her aging parents. When a mysterious Italian woman reaches out claiming to own one of the family’s precious heirlooms, Delaney is compelled to travel to Italy and uncover the truth of her grandfather’s hidden past. With the help of the woman’s skeptical but charming grandson, Delaney learns of a Roman hospital that saved hundreds of Jewish people during the war. Soon, everything Delaney thought she knew about her grandfather comes into question. Based on true accounts of the invented Syndrome K sickness, The Italian Ballerina journeys from the Allied storming of the beaches at Salerno to the London ballet stage and the war-torn streets of World War II Rome, exploring the sometimes heart-wrenching choices we must make to find faith and forgiveness, and how saving a single life can impact countless others.

Vietnam My Deliverance Traumatic Stress My Salvation Book Excerpt:

Post-traumatic stress disorder is both a gift and tool in God’s hands. The Lord has designed a person’s brain to adjust to the rigors of combat or abuse. Combat’s despair can also drive us to Christ. Jim Carmichael, Ph.D. looks back at his service in Vietnam and how it impacted his life upon returning home in this book. More importantly, he reveals how God led him to find redemption, obedience to God, and transformation into the image of Jesus Christ through suffering. In sharing his story, the author seeks to answer questions such as: · What is the purpose of PTSD? · Why don’t all combatants suffer from PTSD? · How can God deliver individuals from bondage? · What can be done to prevent PTSD victims from dying by suicide? The author stresses that the Veterans Administration should do more to teach veterans and their families about how the brain changes when it’s subjected to constant stress. He also highlights how combatants throughout history have been impacted by stress. Join the author as he praises and thanks God for using the horrors of Vietnam to drive him to Christ.
