This is the true story of how a lifelong search for love was fulfilled by divine revelation. In a sacred demonstration, an enlightened master revealed the secret to finding love´s treasure. The encounter could be called ´´other worldly´´ in the sense that the master, a wise and gentle spirit, is not human. However, it is an experience that anyone can have if they so choose. There are no special requirements. All one needs is a willingness to suspend, if only for an instant, the belief that humans are the only beings in the universe capable of love.Kevin McCourt is the creator of The Words & Music Series: Short Stories With A Soundtrack! His influences range from well-loved singer-songwriters to best-selling inspirational writers, and McCourt culls from both those worlds music and self-help to create his art.With his wife, Susan, McCourt created Project OneSong, a program that provides at-risk youth with the opportunity to develop relationships with abused animals in order to teach empathy as an alternative to violence. 1.

You have heard the story before - of a young boy, orphaned through tragic circumstances, raised by a wise old man, who comes to a fuller knowledge of his magic and uses it to fight the great evil that threatens his world. But what if the boy hero and the malevolent, threatening taint were one and the same? What if the boy slowly came to realise he was the reincarnation of an evil god? Would he save the world...or destroy it? Among the Academy´s warrior-thieves, Annev de Breth is an outlier. Unlike his classmates who were stolen as infants from the capital city, Annev was born in the small village of Chaenbalu, was believed to be executed and then unknowingly raised by his parents´ killers. Seventeen years later, Annev struggles with the burdens of a forbidden magic, a forgotten heritage and a secret deformity. When he is subsequently caught between the warring ideologies of his priestly mentor and the Academy´s masters, he must choose between forfeiting his promising future at the Academy and betraying his closest friends. Each decision leads to a deeper dilemma, until Annev finds himself pressed into a quest he does not wish to fulfil.Will he finally embrace the doctrine of his tutors, murder a stranger and abandon his mentor? Or will he accept the more difficult truth of who he is...and the darker truth of what he may become.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Kenny.

You can tell a lot about a person by the way he dies. In the last week of his life, Jesus deliberately sets his face toward Jerusalem - and certain death. This is no ordinary week. Even the angels are silent as they ponder the final days of Jesus Christ. This is no ordinary walk. Jesus doesn´t chatter. He doesn´t pause. He is on his final journey. He walks determinedly to the holy city, angrily into the temple, wearily into Gethsemane, painfully up the Via Dolorosa. And powerfully out of the vacated tomb. Master storyteller and best-selling author Max Lucado invites you: ´´Let´s follow Jesus on his final journey. For by observing his, we may learn how to make ours. And discover what matters to God.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ben Holland. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tnwd/000327/bk_tnwd_000327_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

In the murky shadows of an alley lies a female’s severed hand. On the tenement rooftop above is the corpse belonging to that hand, a red-haired woman dressed all in black, the body nearly decapitated. Two strands of silver hair — not human — cling to her body. They are Rizzoli’s only clues, but they’re enough for her and medical examiner Maura Isles to make a startling discovery: This violent death had a chilling prequel. Nineteen years earlier, a horrifying murder-suicide in a Chinatown restaurant left five people dead. One woman connected to that massacre is still alive: a mysterious martial arts master who knows a secret she dares not tell, a secret that lives and breathes in the shadows of Chinatown. A secret that may not even be human. Now she’s the target of someone, or something, deeply and relentlessly evil. Cracking a crime resonating with bone-chilling echoes of an ancient Chinese legend, Rizzoli and Isles must outwit an unseen enemy with centuries of cunning — and a swift, avenging blade. 1.

No one takes readers to the dark side and back with more razor-sharp jolts and sheer suspense than the storytelling master behind Ice Cold and The Keepsake. When New York Times best-selling author Tess Gerritsen has a tale to tell, put yourself in her expert hands and prepare for the shocks and thrills that are certain to follow. Every crime scene tells a story. Some keep you awake at night. Others haunt your dreams. The grisly display homicide cop Jane Rizzoli finds in Bostons Chinatown will do both. In the murky shadows of an alley lies a females severed hand. On the tenement rooftop above is the corpse belonging to that hand, a red-haired woman dressed all in black, her head nearly severed. Two strands of silver hair not human cling to her body.
