Good day, everyone! My name is Felicia Belphere Metrune. I am the only daughter of Baron Alphonse Lartes Metrune. I am 7 years old. I haven’t always been Baron Metrune’s daughter, though. I was originally a 29 year old man who lived in Cornwall. One day I was hit by a truck and as a result, I was reincarnated into what at first seemed to be medieval Europe. But what’s this? We are a noble family, but why is our house so run down? Why are the fields looking so lifeless? Why does our army consist of one person? Why do we have so much land but it’s all barren? Why? Why? Why?

Felicia Hemans was the most widely read woman poet in the nineteenth-century English-speaking world. Broadview’s edition shows why she was one of the few standard poets to be found in middle-class homes on both sides of the Atlantic, despite being routinely disparaged as a “merely” feminine poet. Included here is poetry representative of her entire career, from often-anthologized works, such as “The Homes of England” and “Casabianca,” to several long poems in their entirety, such as “The Forest Sanctuary.” Also included are selections of her prose and letters, a comprehensive introduction, and selections of views and reviews showing her changing and controversial place in culture into the twentieth century. All selections are edited, annotated, and introduced.

This is a biography of Dr Felicia Wu. Felicia was a scientist with a successful career in cancer research, but what marked the most extraordinary aspect about her life was her journey as a truly brave cancer patient and an incredibly determined cancer fighter. Originally, this book was intended to be an autobiography written and narrated by Felicia herself. She wanted to share with other cancer sufferers her 13 long years of experience fighting cancer to prepare them for the side effects and uncertainties of the treatment, and also to encourage them to brace and face their own treatment without fear. What she did not realize then was that her time was ticking away, and her life trickling off quickly. Writing her own autobiography proved to be an impossible task. Felicia succumbed to the prolonged battle and departed from this world. Her husband, Dr Cheng-Wen Wu, finished the uncompleted task of writing the book in loving memory of her. The biography of Felicia, originally published in Chinese edition, has been recommended as a reading model for students in schools and was nominated for an award in Taiwan. Felicia''s story had also inspired the production of a documentary film entitled, OC A Passion for Life, OCO funded and sponsored by The American Cancer Society. This biography of Felicia in English edition, painstakingly translated by Dr Cheng-Wen Wu and his collaborating translator, Ms Annie Chen, will certainly live up to its original premise as an inspiration to touch more lives and as a source of strength to all who encounter difficulty, disappointment and hurt at any point of their lives.

Perpetua, born in the 2nd century AD, was a martyr, a mystic and, interestingly enough, the first known woman Christian writer. She left behind a diary that outlined her personal experiences, feelings and visions as she languished in prison, awaiting her execution. Sometime after her death, a Christian eyewitness to these brutal events edited her journal and appended additional relevant materials such as a vision recorded by one of her companions and a 'blow by blow' account of the martyrs' final moments in the gladiatorial arena in Carthage AD 203. Here are the events of Perpetua and her companions' life and those of the larger historical period that weaves a believable back-story of ordinary men and women who are caught up in events that test their faith in God and their commitment to Christianity. This is a story of faith under fire, of courage in the face of terrible loss and deprivation and of the human will to hope, even when things are at their darkest. Featuring over 30 illustrations to assist in depicting this story.

Listening to Killers offers an inside look at twenty years' worth of murder files from Dr. James Garbarino, a leading expert psychological witness who listens to killers so that he can testify in court. The author offers detailed accounts of how killers travel a path that leads from childhood innocence to lethal violence in adolescence or adulthood. He places the emotional and moral damage of each individual killer within a larger scientific framework of social, psychological, anthropological, and biological research on human development. By linking individual cases to broad social and cultural issues and illustrating the social toxicity and unresolved trauma that drive some people to kill, Dr. Garbarino highlights the humanity we share with killers and the role of understanding and empathy in breaking the cycle of violence.

Shortlisted for the 2020 BAAL Book Prize This book brings together empirical studies from around the world to help readers gain a better understanding of multilinguals, ranging from small children to elderly people, and their lives. The chapters focus on the multilingual subjects’ identities and the ways in which they are discursively and/or visually constructed, and are split into sections looking specifically at the multilingual self, the multilingual learner and multilingual teacher education. The studies draw on rich visual data, which is analysed for content and/or form and often complemented with other types of data, to investigate how multilinguals make sense of their use and knowledge of more than one language in their specific context. The topic of multilingualism is addressed as subjectively experienced and the book unites the current multilingual, narrative and visual turns in Applied Language Studies. It will be of interest to students and researchers working in the areas of language learning and teaching, teacher education and bi/multilingualism, as well as to those interested in using visual methods and narratives as a means of academic research.

Harris, creator of the black rage defense, traces its origin. Emphasizing that the black rage defense must be enlisted responsibly and selectively, he skillfully distinguishes between applying an environmental defense and simply blaming society in the abstract for individual crimes. He also addresses the possibilities of a white rage defense and the more recent phenomenon of cultural defenses. He illustrates how a person's environment can and does affect his or her life and actions. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

"Put your hands together, everybody say Sunday Morning!" No! The Blackwell's want nothing more to do with Sunday Mornings or God which is not the way Ruth Blackwell raised her children. Ruth trained up her children in the church but when she died suddenly from cancer it seemed everything she taught them died with her. She left behind three precious bibles and a prayer that they will one day find their way back to God. It is true every man when he is driven away it is of his own lust and entice. Each Blackwell is driven by something. Jade, the youngest, is driven by love and surely she should be able to find it at church? When she finds herself alone and pregnant after the death of her mother, it is the church that cast her out like the woman wearing the scarlet letter. Determined to never return again she seeks for the love that's been missing in the arms of a man only to find rejection and another child. Her only source of freedom now is the club life. No longer cleaving to what she was taught but now must make her own choices her own way. Alexandria, the middle child, is driven by bitterness of the past and resolves to better her own life. Seeking for fame as a fashion designer, she is determined to make her mark in the world. She doesn't need any distractions to stand in her way. Not her needy sister, looser brother, not fine Trent Tyler, and definitely not God. Jasper, the oldest, is driven by riches but his search keeps landing him in jail. All he could remember while sitting behind prison walls was what his mother used to say "You can't hide from God." He's wasn't hiding he just wanted to do what he wanted to do? Free from prison he vows to do it the legal way but definitely not God's way. How long will the Blackwell's stop seeking a legacy and embrace the one Ruth left behind? How long will they continue to cry, No More Sunday Mornings?
