A writer bored out of his mind kept staring out of a pane on his window until he was transfixed into an image of a young girl who appeared and beckoned him to follow. She retraced her life, through the steps in the writers view, and leads him through the life she led to her afterlife. Her story recounts her tribulations with antiquated customs and traditions of her people that resulted in self-exile to the United States with her husband and son. In the States, her family faced a new kind of affliction after her husband was incarcerated in the federal penitentiary. Her life changed drastically thereafter as she decided to build a business to avail her childhood dreams and constitute herself into a philanthropist of sorts and a self-acclaimed advocate for the downtrodden. In her last mission to her home country in furtherance of her philanthropy and advocacy for women and children and to speak out against moribund traditional beliefs and atrocious cultural practices that included female circumcision, she was inadvertently gunned down by armed robbers. Even though she left a legacy of selflessness, benefaction, and hope, she still spent her time at the level of consciousness for rebirth, wondering if she did enough and if she ought to return to do some more. Her story and the writers take makes an incursion into life and its connection to and with the supernatural and beyond. Fiction and reality merges into the creation of a fantastic tale of the worthiness of life and living.

Bobbie gets ensnared in the lives and bizarre stories of Evil Sorcerer and some prominent townsfolk, including her own father. She is mesmerised by Evil as much as Evil is mesmerised by her. Their worlds collide when she finds Evil peeking through the tinted glass window of her office, and their lives will never be the same, because Evil is intent on terrorising Bobbie, who is bold and unafraid of anyone, and is able to stand up to her and all her wicked wiles.

Ten-Year-Old Krystal Surles Watched In Horror As Her Best Friend Was Murdered At The Hands Of An Intruder. Then with cold-blooded precision he brought a twelve-inch boning knife to Krystal's throat. With a single, violent slash, he severed her windpipe and left her for dead. Miraculously, she survived and would lead authorities to the arrest of 35-year-old Tommy Lynn Sells, a former truck driver, carnival worker, and cross-country drifter... He Aspired To Become "The Worst Serial Killer Of All Time." With no apparent motive and no common pattern to his inconceivable bloodshed, the elusive Sells had carved his way across the country for two decades slaughtering women, men, transients, entire families, teenagers, and even infants with ghoulish abandon. Through The Window is more than an investigation into a crime spree that stunned a nation. It's an utterly terrifying plunge into the unfathomable dark mind of a serial killer, and the heart-wrenching story of the brave child who finally brought him to justice.

This book is the third in the series, and it follows both Kiss Your Elbow – A Kentucky Memoir, about growing up during the 1940s and 50s,’and its sequel, Changing the Sheets – A Kentucky Memoir, is my story as a representative of the Silent Generation, and how we found our voice. This book is a “Companion Book” to my second book, Changing the Sheets – A Kentucky Memoir. This book begins with my hard-won freedom, as a divorced woman, by starting my new life in the Highlands area of Louisville – the neighborhood of my dreams. Many women were striking out on their own, at this time. I was eager to join them. As the generation that took women out of the home and into the workplace, our Silent Generation needed more skills in setting boundaries, and taking up for ourselves. We were used to being told, “It’s not ‘Lady-like,’ to speak ‘out of turn.” Many challenges were part of my journey, but there was a lot of fun and adventure, too. The time period shown in this book follows the caustic, 1960s, and moves beyond. As you read, you will hopefully recall some good memories of your own. Nostalgia is powerful!

A pioneering researcher gives us a new understanding of stress and trauma, as well as the tools to heal and thrive. This groundbreaking book examines the cultural norms that impede resilience in America, especially our collective tendency to disconnect stress from its potentially extreme consequences and override our need to recover. It explains the science of how to direct our attention to perform under stress and recover from trauma, exploring how our survival brain and thinking brain react to traumatic situations differently. By directing our attention in particular ways, we can widen the window within which our thinking brain and survival brain work together cooperatively. When we use awareness to regulate our biology this way, we can access our best, uniquely human qualities: our compassion, courage, curiosity, creativity, and connection with others. By building our resilience, we can train ourselves to make wise decisions and access choice - even during times of incredible stress, uncertainty and change. With stories from men and women Dr Stanley has trained in settings as varied as military bases, healthcare facilities, as well as her own striking experiences with stress and trauma, she gives readers hands-on strategies they can use themselves, whether they want to perform under pressure or heal from traumatic experience, while at the same time pointing our understanding in a new direction. Foreword by Bessel Van Der Kolk, bestselling author of The Body Keeps the Score. 'Widen the Window is a comprehensive overview of stress and trauma, responses to it, and tools for healing and thriving. It's not only for those in high-intensity work, but for everyone.' - Mindful Magazine
