William Wallace started out as a humble knight, but he died a war hero. He gave up everything in his fight for Scottish freedom, including his life. When captured, Wallace was hung, drawn, and quartered by the English king for crimes against the crown. Though he was memorialized in the 1995 film Braveheart, this book tells how much of what we associate with Wallace is more legend than fact. Still, the spirit of the great Scotsman lives on in the hearts and minds of his compatriots today.

This book is great information for anyone whether they have diabetes or not. Lots of people are obese and can use tweaks in their diets. Convenience and processing are what is killing people. Their tastebuds control them. This is great that explains some great ideas for healthier options. I would have liked a PDF version of the recipes to print out and keep in the kitchen.

She begged God to rescue her. He said, "Go." So she headed out into the blizzard. In a car that wasn't exactly hers, with a dog who wasn't exactly a rat terrier, she drove. Until she ran out of gas in the small Maine town of Mattawooptock. What on earth is God thinking? But it is there, in a weird little bathroom in a weird little church in a weird little town that Maggie Hansen finds herself. And as God would have it, she finds a lot more than that.

Interesting premise about a girl running from her life. While many points seem plausible, a few things just don't add up or leave the reader with questions. All in all its a gentle feel good story with some Bible sprinkled in, not too preachy. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Clara Kelley is not who they think she is. She's not the experienced Irish maid who was hired to work in one of Pittsburgh's grandest households. She's a poor farmer's daughter with nowhere to go and nothing in her pockets. But the other woman with the same name has vanished, and pretending to be her just might get Clara some money to send back home.

This is a very well researched novel. If you like Ruta Supety or Francine Rivers this is for you. An incredible story about a man and a woman who changed life on this planet forever. Carnegie is a hero and stands on the shoulders of Guttenberg, teachers and Abraham Lincoln as someone who created the written word to he accessible to everyone. I have long felt honored to be a librarian and loved how this book so pinpointed the exact opportunity that makes the most difference in someone's life. it is the learning about things outside of your own circle. Broadening your knowledge base is what will change your world and that of those around you. When a dictator takes over a country the first thing they do is take away the books from the people. If you are reading this then you understand. Change others lives by giving books instead of other junk. Books change the world.

"If you understand completely what I am going to tell you, from this moment on, your life will never be the same again." -Earl Nightingale This amazing message was first played for a group of salespeople at Earl Nightingale's insurance agency. They were utterly electrified. Word of it spread like wildfire, and everyone who heard it was positively ignited into action. Requests for a recording of the message came pouring in - thousands of requests per week.

These are the forefathers of self-improvement. To think that some people were so determined to change their thinking they had to have a battery powered record player in their car, with coin on the needle to keep it from skipping. And some people today complain they dont have time for personal growth!!! It's up to each person and their desire for a different life, and it all starts in your head. Listen to these more than once, you won't be sorry.
