Ein großer Sportplatz, freundliche Klassenzimmer und getrennte Schlafsäle für Jungen und Mädchen – auf den ersten Blick scheint Hailsham ein ganz gewöhnliches englisches Internat zu sein. Aber die Lehrer, so engagiert und freundlich sie auch sind, heißen hier Aufseher, und sie lassen die Kinder früh spüren, dass sie für eine besondere Zukunft ausersehen sind. Dieses Gefühl hält Kathy, Ruth und Tommy durch alle Stürme der Pubertät und Verwirrungen der Liebe zusammen – bis es an der Zeit ist, ihrer wahren Bestimmung zu folgen.

Charlotte Nicholls can hardly believe it, but it seems she’s landed in paradise. Living in a cottage in a shady cove on the beautiful Bay of Islands, surrounded by the splendor of New Zealand, Charlotte revels in her new life. She and her nearly four-year-old daughter, Chloe, have started over, with the help of Charlotte’s birth mother, Anna, who has recently reentered Charlotte’s life after a twenty-six-year absence. Little Chloe is thriving in her new home, and despite lingering effects from a terrible trauma Chloe has suffered, Charlotte is hopeful that love will pull her through. And though their relationship is tentative, Charlotte and Anna are slowly rebuilding their trust after nearly a lifetime apart. But the horrors of the past—both recent and long buried—are never far from Charlotte’s mind. And then their idyll is suddenly shattered, as a series of events is set in motion that Charlotte can neither control nor comprehend. It will take all of Charlotte’s strength to keep her little family together, in the face of a world that will do everything it can to tear them apart.

This book is about my exciting and wonderful career in the United States Air Force. I listed my various assignment in the order in which they occurred and outlined the major events in my life while at each base. Every assignment had a lot of good points and some that wasn't that great but I tried to focus on the exciting things. A large portion of the book deals with my assignments in Vietnam and events that still haunt me today. The events in the book start when I was a senior in high school trying to talk my Mother into giving me permission to enlist just as soon as I turn 17 years old. I also wrote about some of the interesting things while in high school and about my large family. I felt that it might be of interest to the reader to know that between all my brothers and I we accumulated over 170 years of military service to our country. I ended the book with some events that happened while I was teaching and the jetliner that I observed on 10 Sep 01 practicing for the flight across southern Pennsylvania that crashed on 9/11.

On April 2, 2005, the world kept vigil at the bedside of John Paul II and together mourned his passing.A man of suffering--the child who lost his parents; the youth who endured war, Nazi persecution, and the subsequent communist regime; the youthful Pope who was shot in an attempt on his life; the elderly Pope whose Parkinson's prompted numerous trips to Gemelli hospital--Wojtyla was always constantly attentive to the sick and suffering, who knew they would find a place of listening and understanding in his heart.Acquainted with sorrow throughout his life, John Paul II demonstrated the value of redemptive suffering to a world keeping vigil during his final hours. Now, his private secretary and personal physician, and others nearest him during his last days, share their own memories of that precious time: a story of courage, gratitude and love.Stanislaw Dziwisz is today the archbishop of Krakow, after having dedicated the past 27 years to John Paul II as his secretary. Czeslaw Drazek, SJ, is the publisher of the Polish edition of L?Osservatore Romano.Renato Buzzonetti was John Paul II's personal physician.Angelo Comastri is the President of the Fabbrica di San Peitro and was the Vicar General of Vatican City under John Paul II. He has published numerous books in spirituality.
