Tess Snow has everything she ever wanted: one more semester before a career in property development, a loving boyfriend, and a future dazzling bright with possibility. For their two-year anniversary, Brax surprises Tess with a romantic trip to Mexico. Sandy beaches, delicious cocktails, and soul-connecting sex set the mood for a wonderful holiday. With a full heart, and looking forward to a passion filled week, Tess is on top of the world. But lusty paradise is shattered. Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen.

I was hoping for a twist that Brax was behind the kidnapping. too much back and forth with emotional shifts. Narration was disappointing in that the accents rarely reflected characters except a bit of French

In 1970, one of Mississippi's more colorful weekly newspapers, The Ford County Times, went bankrupt. To the surprise and dismay of many, ownership was assumed by a 23 year-old college dropout, named Willie Traynor. The future of the paper looked grim until a young mother was brutally raped and murdered by a member of the notorious Padgitt family. Willie Traynor reported all the gruesome details, and his newspaper began to prosper.

What did you love best about Ceremony in Death?

story line, depth of details

Any additional comments?

I wish there was a reconciliation between Chas and Eve. I also want to know what happened to the young girl who was used by the bad witch to frame Chas. Tidying up details makes for a satisfying conclusion

Shonda did a great job now reading her book. She is raw and boner bowl and honest. It made me laugh. It made me think. La loads of insightful dialogue between Shonda and herself. Love the uplifting story of her transformation. only the author can put as much heart and meaning to the words in her own book

The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them all they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it - from garden seeds to Scripture - is calamitously transformed on African soil.

On The Power of Vulnerability, Dr. Brown offers an invitation and a promise - that when we dare to drop the armor that protects us from feeling vulnerable, we open ourselves to the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Here she dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and reveals that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.
