Summary Book Review Suffer the Innocent Children by Marian Olivia Heath Griffin:
Download or read book Suffer the Innocent Children written by Marian Olivia Heath Griffin and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2021-02-24 with total page 184 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book Synopsis: There are millions of innocent children of the world who deserve love, respect, concern and loyalty. Jesus said many times, “ Suffer the little children to come to me and do not bother them.” Innocent children are untrained, undisciplined and lacking in capacity or experience. Many children suffer today like never before. They need helping navigating their way through the system of life while protecting and respecting themselves. Real life does not teach great lessons in times of ease and prosperity, joy and comfort. Children’s greatest character- building and faith-strengthening lessons mostly come during times of difficulties and suffering. From the time we are born until our death, God doesn’t waste anything – not even our heartaches and trials. Many innocent children are blessed with the empowerment of faith, education and experience of joy they deserve. This is god-sent and shows God’s love of human life. He said “I will show you a most excellent way : LOVE. What we do for others, defines who we are.

Summary Book Review The Prison Book Club by Ann Walmsley:
Download or read book The Prison Book Club written by Ann Walmsley and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2015-10-01 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book Synopsis: When Ann Walmsley was asked to take part in a book club in a men’s prison, she was initially anxious: after a violent mugging a few years before, could she really cope being surrounded by violent criminals? Luckily, curiosity got the better of her, and she signed up for eighteen months of meetings with heavily tattooed inmates, talking about books ranging from The Grapes of Wrath to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. But this wasn’t your typical book club – there was no wine and cheese, plush furniture or superficial chat about recent holidays. Classic works of fiction and non-fiction became springboards for frank discussions about loss, anger, redemption and loneliness, and for the men a prized oasis in which to regain a sense of humanity. In this heart-warming example of the rehabilitative power of reading, follow Graham the biker, Frank the gunman, Ben and Dread the drug dealers, and the robber duo Gaston and Peter as they share ideas and reveal their life stories. The Prison Book Club is unlike anything you’ve read before.

Summary Book Review The Making of a Mother by Valerie Davis Raskin:
Download or read book The Making of a Mother written by Valerie Davis Raskin and published by Ballantine Books. This book was released on 2008-12-18 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book Synopsis: What makes a good mother? Are some women just born naturally maternal, or do mothers discover that part of themselves once they have a child? Now a renowned expert on the subject–and herself a mother of three–addresses the unspoken worries and fears that accompany motherhood and shares the reassuring message that every mother learns “on the job.” Dr. Valerie Davis Raskin has worked with more than four hundred mothers in twenty years of clinical practice and has discovered that mothering is just as developmental as childhood. Dr. Raskin identifies the nine challenges facing mothers from their child’s infancy to young adulthood, pivotal moments that put mothers to the test time and again–and yet from which they can emerge truly rewarded. • IDENTITY: How to gain confidence during those overwhelming first months after you’ve given birth or adopted, but don’t yet “feel” like a mother. • UNLOVING MOMENTS: Every mother’s secret guilt–learn to accept those not-so-precious moments when you don’t like the child you love so dearly. • HONORING THE FATHER: Tips for helping Dad stop feeling like a third wheel and bond with his child (and receive attention from you!). • SEPARATION: How to maintain a positive outlook on your child’s milestones, from the first day of preschool to packing him off to sleepaway camp. • SETTING LIMITS: How to put your foot down, even when your child kicks, screams, or cries. • IMPERFECT INSTITUTIONS: How to cope when your child does not have the best teacher or the most inspiring coach, or faces a less than fair grading system. • REVISED DREAMS: Your cute five-year-old in a pink tutu has no rhythm. Your nine-year-old cannot catch a ball. Learn to modify your dreams for your child–and follow your child’s dreams instead. • ADVERSITY: You can’t keep your child in a plastic bubble, but you can take a deep breath, relax, and be there for her when life gets tough. • SAYING GOODBYE: Discover the joys of loving your adult child while not living under the same roof. This wonderfully anecdotal, engaging, and accessible book is nothing less than an essential training manual for mothers of all ages. The bottom line: Just because motherhood is sometimes difficult, confusing, intense, sleepless, and frustrating, doesn’t mean mothers aren’t doing it right!

Prolific crime writer Penny Freedman returns with her fifth novel in the Gina Gray series: Drown My Books. The narrative follows the story of Gina Gray, a woman who is disappointed by work, love and life. She has settled on a bleak stretch of the Kent coast where she walks her surly dog, coaches unpromising A-level students and teaches English to asylum seekers in Dover, whose stories break her heart. The one bright spot in her life is the community library and the book group she organises; however, on one grim February morning, her dog finds a body on the beach and her source of comfort turns into her biggest threat... Alarmingly, Gina learns that the dead woman is the second member of the book group to be killed, making Gina convinced that the book group is being targeted. DI Paula Powell, the lead of the police investigation, also happens to be Gina’s old rival in love, and Powell breaks the news that the killer is believed to be among Gina’s class of asylum seekers. With or without the help of DI Paula Powell, Gina has to move fast to find the truth. Could it be one of her asylum-seeker students who she admires so much that is actually a cold-blooded murderer? Drown My Books will appeal to those who enjoy crime and mystery fiction, as well as fans of Penny’s former books. The book will also appeal to fans of Kate Atkinson and Susan Hill, authors that have inspired Penny’s writing.

Summary Book Review The Return of the Fallen Angels Book Club by R. Franklin James:
Download or read book The Return of the Fallen Angels Book Club written by R. Franklin James and published by Epicenter Press. This book was released on 2015-05-01 with total page 280 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book Synopsis: Hollis Morgan is a survivor. She married young to flee an unloving family and ended up in prison, paying the price for her charming husband's embezzlement. After finally obtaining a California judicial pardon, Hollis has climbed the ladder from paralegal to probate attorney at a respected law firm in the Bay Area. Unfortunately her first two cases are trials by fire. One involves a vicious family dispute over a disinheritance of family members who seem ready to stop at nothing to get their share. The other is the murder of her former parole officer, Jeffrey Wallace, whose will and family trust she is retained to file with the court. Too many people have motives and family mourners are few, so she resists processing the estate. Without Jeffrey, Hollis' successful reentry into society would never have been possible. It was he who introduced her to the Fallen Angels--his other white-collar ex-parolees seeking a second chance. The book club they formed was a comfort and a distraction, until two murders forced them back under the scrutiny of the law. The group disbanded during the ensuing investigation. Now, realizing their debt to Jeffrey, they come together once more, determined to uncover the truth. Although Hollis has met a great guy--a police detective who knows about her past yet accepts her unconditionally--she is afraid to trust again. Naturally he doesn't want to see her put her life in danger for the sake of a case, but he also knows she won't stop until Jeffrey's murderer is discovered. As both cases heat up, Hollis finds that probate law can bring out the worst in people and sometimes expose a killer. The Return of the Fallen Angels Book Club is book 3 in the Hollis Morgan mystery series, which began with The Fallen Angels Book Club and continued with Sticks & Stones.
