Full Description : "The fair Lady Julitta has a problem. She is not wealthy. She prizes her virginity. And her liege, whom she despises, is intent on rape. Red Adam is the lord of Brentborough castle--young, impetuous, scandalous, a twelfth-century hell raiser. On one of his nights of drunken revelry he abducts Julitta. Though she fends him off, keeping her virginity, he has sullied her honor. Then, to the astonishment of all, he marries her. Red Adam's Lady is a boisterous, bawdy tale of wild adventure, set against the constant dangers of medieval England. It is a story of civil war and border raids, scheming aristorcrats and brawling villagers, daring escapes across the moors and thundering descents down steep cliffs to the ocean. Its vivid details give the reader a fascinating and realistic view of life in a medieval castle and village. And the love story in it is an unusual one, since Julitta won't let Adam get closer than the length of her stiletto. Long out of print though highly acclaimed, Red Adam's Lady is a true classic of historical fiction along the lines of Anya Seton's Katherine and Sharon Kay Penman's Here Be Dragons.
Reading Red Adam's Lady can increase mental stimulation. Research shows that staying in a mental stimulus can slow (or even eliminate) Alzheimer's disease and dementia, as keeping your brain active and touching does not allow you to lose weight. Chicago Review Press"

Full Description : "Eric and Wendy are the modern day prodigal story. The Prodigal Couple is an inspirational, yet candid his-and-hers accounts of how they fell out of God's will, but by his Grace, ended up running right back into each other's arms and God's divine plan for their lives.God told Eric and Wendy that they were soul mates. But they gave into their flesh and left God out. Their selfishness hurt each other and sabotaged God's divine plan. While apart, they endured fear, depression, betrayal, rejection, loneliness, suicidal thoughts, infidelity, and brokenness. Nothing they tried couldn't compare to what God had shown them. Once you have tasted and seen His best for you, nothing and no one else will do.Eric and Wendy finally came to the end of themselves and surrendered to God and He was able to pick up their broken lives, heal them, and transform them into His masterpiece (Eph 2:10). He proved to them that He is faithful to complete that which He has started (Phi 1:6). When God is for you nothing can be against you, not even yourself.

Full Description : "In today’s society, people and organisations increasingly undergo processes of transition. Experiences of change affect all areas of life: our jobs, relationships, status, communities, engagement in civil society, lifestyles, even understandings of our own identity. Each person must expect and make ready for transitions, engaging in learning as a fundamental strategy for handling change. This is where lifelong learning steps in. From career guidance to third age programmes, from ‘learning to learn’ in kindergarten to MBA, from Mozart for babies to gender re-assignment counselling, people face a crowded world of learning activities designed to help them through transitions. Researching Transitions in Lifelong Learning presents new research from Britain, Australia and North America. The authors include leading scholars with established international reputations - such as Kathryn Ecclestone, Sue Webb, Gert Biesta, W. Norton Grubb, Nicky Solomon and David Boud - as well as emerging researchers with fresh and sometimes challenging perspectives. While emphasising the complexity and variety of people’s experiences of learning transitions, as well as acknowledging the ways in which they are embedded in the specific contexts of everyday life, the authors share a common interest in understanding the lived experiences of change from the learner’s perspective. This volume therefore provides an opportunity to take stock of recent research into transitions, seen in the context of lifelong learning, and outlines important messages for future policy and practice. It will also appeal to researchers worldwide in education and industrial sociology, as well as students on courses in post-compulsory education.

Full Description : "Language has always been used as a measure of social, ideological, and psychological contexts for the exploration of madness. The Madhouse of Language considers the relations between madness and language from the late seventeenth to early nineteenth centuries, focusing on the close analysis of both medical records and texts by mad writers. It presents a highly original account of the linguistic relations between madness and sanity, of the appropriation by sane writers of the forms of English, and of attempts by mad patients to gain access to the expressive potential of language.
Reading The Madhouse of Language can create great peace and inner peace. Reading spiritual texts can lower blood pressure and create a great sense of calm, but this shows that reading books with this genre helps people suffering from certain mood disorders and mild mental illness. Routledge"
Full Description : "In his own time, Shakespeare was best known to the reading public as a poet, and even today copies of his Sonnets regularly outsell everything else he wrote. For this edition, Stephen Orgel offers a warmly personal and original introduction to Shakespeare's best-loved and most widely read poems. Careful readings emphasize their sexual and temperamental ambiguity, their textual history and the special perils an editor faces when modernizing the original quarto's spelling, punctuation, and even layout. The edition retains the text of the Sonnets prepared by Gwynne Evans, together with his detailed notes on each, and a line-by-line commentary. Throughout, the 'voices' of the sonnets appear in all their intricacy and dramatic power.
The Sonnets, good words and speeches are a great help in any profession, and knowing that you can talk to a higher group with confidence can be a great affirmation of your self-esteem. It might even help your career, because those who are good at reading, both oral and knowledgeable on various topics, can quickly be advertised (and more generally) than those who have less vocabulary, as well as literature, scientific discoveries and global events lack understanding.

Full Description : "All three of Angela Hunt's medieval sagas in one volume! Afton of Margate Castle:Beautiful, headstrong Afton is taken from her parents at an early age and raised in the castle, a companion to the earl’s daughter. Schooled in the ways of kings and surrounded by splendor, Afton falls in love with the earl’s son, brave, Calhoun, her childhood protector. But Calhoun’s mother, the Lady Endeline, has much different plans for him than marriage to a villein’s daughter. Suddenly Afton’s world is torn viciously apart. She is cast out of the castle, given to a man she fears and despises as a reward for his loyalty—an all too clear reminder that, for all her dreams, she is nothing but a villein. Now all she has left is a burning desire for vengeance . . . The Troubadour's Quest: Danger brought them together . . . Gislebert, a gentle troubadour seeking the woman who captured his heart; Jonas, a feisty street urchin surviving by his wits and his beautiful drawings. These two uneasy companions agree to join in the search for adventure. But Jonas has a secret—one that will change the troubadour’s life. As the two face hardship, imprisonment, and threats to their lives, Gislebert must face the demands of two kinds of love: faithful friendship and devotion to God. A hauntingly beautiful tale, The Troubadour’s Quest weaves a tapestry that defines the true nature of love: spiritual, self-giving devotion that springs from a heart committed to God’s purposes.
