The path to freedom is filled with questions and uncertainty. Is it possible to truly know who we are? Do our lives have a purpose, or are we just accidental? What are we meant to contribute? What are we meant to become, to create, and to share? In The Book of Understanding, Osho, one of the most provocative thinkers of our time, challenges us to understand our world and ourselves in a new and radical way. The first step toward understanding, he says, is to question and doubt all that we have been taught to believe. All our lives we´ve been handed so-called truths by countless others-beliefs we learned to accept without reason. It is only in questioning our beliefs, assumptions, and prejudices that we can begin to uncover our own unique voice and heal the divisions within us and without. Once we discover our authentic self, we can embrace all aspects of the human experience-from the earthy, pleasure-loving qualities that characterize Zorba the Greek to the watchful, silent qualities of Gautam the Buddha. We can become whole and live with integrity, able to respond with creativity and compassion to the religious, political, and cultural divides that currently plague our society. In this groundbreaking work, Osho identifies, loosens, and ultimately helps to untie the knots of fear and misunderstanding that restrict us-leaving us free to discover and create our own individual path to freedom.

The compelling, poignant true stories of victims of a notorious adoption scandal-some of whom learned the truth from Lisa Wingate´s bestselling novel Before We Were Yours and were reunited with birth family members as a result of its wide reach From the 1920s to 1950, Georgia Tann ran a black-market baby business at the Tennessee Children´s Home Society in Memphis. She offered up more than 5,000 orphans tailored to the wish lists of eager parents-hiding the fact that many weren´t orphans at all, but stolen sons and daughters of poor families, desperate single mothers, and women told in maternity wards that their babies had died. The publication of Lisa Wingate´s novel Before We Were Yours brought new awareness of Tann´s lucrative career in child trafficking. Adoptees who knew little about their pasts gained insight into the startling facts behind their family histories. Encouraged by their contact with Wingate and award-winning journalist Judy Christie, who documented the stories of fifteen adoptees in this book, many determined Tann survivors set out to trace their roots and find their birth families. Before and After includes moving and sometimes shocking accounts of the ways in which adoptees were separated from their first families. Often raised as only children, many have joyfully reunited with siblings in the final decades of their lives. Christie and Wingate tell of first meetings that are all the sweeter and more intense for time missed and of families from very different social backgrounds reaching out to embrace better-late-than-never brothers, sisters, and cousins. In a poignant culmination of art meeting life, many of the long-silent victims of the tragically corrupt system return to Memphis with the authors to reclaim their stories at a Tennessee Children´s Home Society reunion . . . with extraordinary results. Advance praise for Before and After ´´In Before and After, authors Judy Christie and Lisa Wingate tackle the true stories behind Wingate´s blockbuster Before We Were Yours, of the orphans who survived the Tennessee Children´s Home Society. With a journalist´s keen eye and a novelist´s elegant prose, Christie and Wingate weave together the stories that inspired Before We Were Yours with the lives that were changed as a result of reading the novel. Readers will be educated, enlightened, and enraptured by this important and flawlessly executed book.´´-Pam Jenoff, author of The Orphan´s Tale and The Lost Girls of Paris

After a gruesome murder, Phillip must finally face Michael alone for the first time in several months. His greatest fear is whether he can find any forgiveness for the years he remained silent, allowing his younger brother to suffer at the hands of Tony, their sadistic father. Years before the killing, Tony accidentally discovers a letter written to his wife, proving that she had a passionate relationship with someone named Samuel. This forces him to consider the humiliating possibility that Michael may not be his son. Consumed with rage, Tony´s only ambition is to destroy the possible evidence of his wife´s affair. When Michael is nearly sixteen years old, he becomes the victim of a cruel, senseless prank, which leaves him barely alive. While sitting alone in the hospital with his brother, Phillip is tormented by reoccurring memories he can´t seem to escape, and just when he realizes the hopelessness of his life without Michael, Samuel-the man who wrote the letter to the boys´ mother-arrives at the hospital. Samuel soon finds himself confronted with the terrifying reality that he may have missed his only chance to meet the young man he suspects is his son. Regardless of the fierce risks to his own family, Samuel-along with his heroic wife-refuse to abandon the boys to their barbaric life. These courageous outsiders quickly realize that Phillip and Michael have only known hatred in their lives, and they want nothing more than to offer the brothers a chance to learn that love conquers all things-a reality Phillip must embrace if he is ever going to make peace with Michael, and himself, especially after the brutal death that changed everything.
