“The prevailing philosophy of foreign missions was to send career missionaries to the nations of the world and let the fellow believers at home support them with their monies and prayers…Then Dub Jackson emerged on the scene…God planted a dream in his heart about reaching thousands…with the gospel of Jesus Christ…This book is about that watershed vision…This is a book about miracles and divine provision…This story must be told… “This book is not a dull history of some business plan and its processes. This book is about the incredible moving of God in the lives of real people, just like you and me. It is about the sacrifice that has brought now hundreds of thousands of people on Partnership Missions and millions into the Kingdom of God through their witness. This book throbs with life and whets the appetite for more. Every born-again Christian ought to read this book. It tells the story that is the closest to the heart of God, the story of redeeming love, compelling sacrifice, and glorious Good News.” —from the foreword

She's waited five hard years for her husband to return from the war - but is he still the man she married? Lynda Page writes a moving post-war saga in Whatever It Takes, in which one hopeful wife finds that the war has far-reaching repercussions. Perfect for fans of Dilly Court and Pam Evans. Kay Clifton has waited five, long, lonely years for her husband Bob to come home from the war. Despite her excitement at his return, their whirlwind romance prior to his departure makes her feel as though she hardly knows him, so it's not surprising that Kay is apprehensive when she meets him at the station. Kay's hopes of starting their blissfully happy marriage are dashed by the presence of Bob's fellow soldier Tony. Bob is indebted to Tony for saving his life and seems hell bent on repaying that debt, to the couple's detriment. But as Tony starts acting more and more strangely, Kay worries that something else happened during the war that Bob is keeping secret. And Bob himself isn't behaving like the man whom she waved off so tearfully all those years ago. But with the love and encouragement of her family and friends, Kay is determined that whatever it takes she will bring out the Bob with whom she first fell in love and forge the future that they had envisaged before the war wreaked its havoc. What readers are saying about Whatever It Takes: 'The emphasis is very much on the characters, their emotions and "inner feelings", and [it is] extremely convincing and very well done... superb characterisation' 'Brilliant book - five stars'

Sienna has no memory of her late mother, yet every significant day of her life—birthdays, the first day of high school, graduation—has been marked by a letter written during her last weeks of life. Sienna knows her father feels grateful to be able to offer up these connections to the loving, talented woman his daughter never got a chance to know. Yet for Sienna herself, the letters have become a dreaded burden, a reminder that every milestone is less than it would be if both parents were still living. A month before her twenty-fifth birthday, Sienna finds a lump. Facing a cancer diagnosis, Sienna begins to ask questions about her mother’s terminal illness—questions that reveal unsettling inconsistencies and voids in the stories she’s been told. The deeper she digs, the more the image of her mother as a contented homemaker warps into something much darker and far more troubling. If Sienna’s dad lied about this, what else did he lie about? What does it mean to be a good parent? What role does the past play in who we are? And to what lengths should one go to protect a child? Like the best of Jodi Picoult, Whatever It Takes delves into these fascinating questions of family and identity with power, insight, and love.
