Meghan Elam knows that she belongs in the Otherworld, but she doesn't know if she's quite ready to take that leap. With Cade on the mend and her mortal family aware of their daughter's true identity, everything seems lined up for her to make a smooth transition into her new life. Unfortunately, Meghan has a mortal enemy, an angry goddess who has not yet given up on her chance for revenge.
"A True Heroine"
For millennia plant and animal species have received little sustained attention as subjects of Christian theology and ethics in their own right. Focused on the human dilemma of sin and redemptive grace, theology has considered the doctrine of creation to be mainly an overture to the main drama of human being`s relationship to God. What value does the natural world have within the framework of religious belief?
I never heard him come after me and even as I climbed the slope and stumbled onto our shaded back lawn, I didn't look back. It was like the day the gnomes chased me all over again, but this time I was not escaping some horrible little creatures, I was fleeing from an incredibly good-looking guy who could very well understand me completely. I was either saving myself from that serial killer I always imagined lived down in the swamp, or I had finally gone over the deep end...
"An invitation to travel through the Dolmarehn"
A year ago, Meghan Elam learned that she was Faelorehn, a being of the Otherworld. Immortal. Only when her visions grew worse and when a mysterious boy appeared to help guide her, did she finally come to realize exactly who and what she was. But the questions didn't end there, and Meghan is only just beginning to find the answers. Now she must juggle her life in the mortal world with the one she has started to build in the Otherworld.
"It's official, I want my own spirit guide"
"A Single Thread of Magic" Cade MacRoich is Ehríad, a faelah bounty hunter. When he is compelled to deal with a collection of particularly nasty monsters in the mortal world, he stumbles upon a stream of Faelorehn magic that leads him to something astonishing. "The Morrigan's Game" The children of the Weald are protected by the forest's ancient magic, but when the Morrigan's faelah manage to break through that barrier, Cade's sister calls upon him for help.
"Great story even better as an audio book!"
Caedehn MacRoich was sent to the mortal world for one purpose: to hunt the Morrigan's renegade faelah. But he never anticipated stumbling upon Meghan Elam, a young woman from his own realm, nor did he expect to fall in love with her. Fate, however, had other plans for Cade and when he broke his own geis to keep Meghan safe, the Morrigan demanded retribution for his disobedience.
In the Middle Ages and Counter-Reformation, some saw Mary as almost "divine". She was placed on a pedestal and removed from ordinary life experiences. Johnson suggests that we "ask Mary to rejoin us on the ground". Drawing from Scripture, especially the Magnificat, tradition, and Vatican II, Johnson describes Mary as God's friend and prophet. She shows that Mary is not well served when she is portrayed as the maternal face of God, or as the ideal woman or eternal feminine.
Sister Elizabeth Johnson suggests that since Vatican II we have left the path that strove simply for personal perfection. We seek a life that is also integrated and intimate with others in a world community. She defines compassion as "a mode of relationship with others that participates in the suffering of others in such a way that it generates power to resist and to redeem." As we respond to the gospel message, we are moved through the Spirit to confront suffering. We cannot remain indifferent to our calling.
