Katherine and Jean-Michel once shared a deep love that was torn apart by forces beyond their control. Reunited in the 1920s at the Curry Hotel in Alaska, have the years changed them too deeply to rediscover what they had? And when Jean-Michel's nightmares of war return with terrifying consequences, will faith be enough to heal what's been broken for so long?

Good “God” message but author will act like she is going to lead up to something then it just jumps forward a few days and it’s over. Ex: they got influenza then they didn’t and it was happy every after.

In Bringing Up Boys, Dr. James Dobson, America's most trusted authority on family issues, tackles these questions and offers advice and encouragement based on a firm foundation of biblical principles. Bringing Up Boys is a must-read book for parents, teachers, social workers, youth leaders, and counselors--anyone involved in the challenge of turning boys into good men.

Sorry I can't get on board with all that Dobson teaches. Loved his raising girls. He explained the different areas of concern for girls but in raising boys he didn't explain the needs of boys outside of you should homeschool and stay home with them. I want to learn more about what my son needs in my roll as a mother throughout adolescents. His dare to discipline book is a helpful way to balance today's teaching methods but he instructs more punishment than discipline. Don't get me wrong spanking has a time and place but as a last result. I know from those who know him personally that he doesn't believe in spanking under the age of 5 but I don't think he clearly explains this in either of these books or why.

Playing off the themes in the Caldecott Medal-winning children's book Where the Wild Things Are, this informative, practical, and encouraging guide will help parents guide boys down the path to healthy and authentic manhood. Wild Things addresses the physical, emotional, and spiritual parts of a boy, written by two therapists who are currently engaged in clinical work with boys and their parents and who are also fathers raising five sons.

Hands down recommend for anyone with boys. I was raised in a family with 4 girls and no close male relatives other than my dad. His methods of parenting go right along with ours. They recommend love and logic which is good for younger children but I think no drama discipline would be my first recommendation over that. Thanks for all the good info. Looking forward to checking out your other books.

It is awkwardly written. Robotic might be another word. Sometimes it's hard to follow because of the way it jumps. And then within a few min in the end they just wrap everything up.

Lady Ella Myerston can always find a reason to smile - even if it's just in hope that tomorrow will be better than today. All her life everyone has tried to protect her from the realities of the world, but Ella knows very well the danger that has haunted her brother and their friend, and she won't wait for it to strike again. She intends to take action, and if that happens to involve an adventurous trip to the Cotswolds, then so much the better.

We're here, then we're gone, and that was true before they came. That's always been true. The Others didn't invent death; they just perfected it. Gave death a face to put back in our face, because they knew that was the only way to crush us. It won't end on any continent or ocean, no mountain or plain, jungle or desert. It will end where it began, where it had been from the beginning: on the battlefield of the last beating human heart.
