Book Waiting for First Light

Download or read book Waiting for First Light written by Romeo Dallaire and published by Vintage Canada. This book was released on 2019-01-08 with total page 210 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this piercing memoir, Roméo Dallaire, retired general and former senator, bestselling author and one of the world's leading humanitarians, delves deep into his life since the Rwandan genocide. At the heart of Waiting for First Light is a no-holds-barred self-portrait of a top political and military figure whose nights are invaded by despair, but who at first light faces the day with the renewed desire to make a difference in the world. Roméo Dallaire, traumatized by witnessing genocide on an imponderable scale in Rwanda, reflects in these pages on the nature of PTSD and the impact of that deep wound on his life since 1994, and on how he motivates himself and others to humanitarian work despite his constant struggle. Though he had been a leader in peace and in war at all levels up to deputy commander of the Canadian Army, his PTSD led to his medical dismissal from the Canadian Forces in April 2000, a blow that almost killed him. But he crawled out of the hole he fell into after he had to take off the uniform, and he has been inspiring people to give their all to multiple missions ever since, from ending genocide to eradicating the use of child soldiers to revolutionizing officer training so that our soldiers can better deal with the muddy reality of modern conflict zones and to revolutionizing our thinking about the changing nature of conflict itself. Compelling and original, Waiting for First Light is an emotional account of suffering, endurance, and the fight for a better world.

In post-Arthurian Britain, the wars that once raged between the Saxons and the Britons have finally ceased. Axl and Beatrice, an elderly British couple, set off to visit their son, whom they haven't seen in years.

As they are joined on their journey by a Saxon warrior, his orphan charge, and an illustrious knight, Axl and Beatrice slowly begin to remember the dark and troubled past they all share. By turns savage, suspenseful, and intensely moving, The Buried Giant is a luminous meditation on the act of forgetting and the power of memory.

He’s sworn off the fairer sex and instead spends his waking hours overseeing the expansion of his family’s hugely successful winery in the magnificent hills of Chianti, where he is happy to never see a model again, let alone date one. American supermodel Taylor McFarland might be blond, but she sure isn’t dumb.

Only Taylor’s not that type at all; instead, she’s intent on using the influence her position affords her to help those less fortunate than she. But when her good deeds means clashing with the quintessential heartless Italian player who she’d heard left model Gia Sandretti at the altar, well, she will happily give him a piece of her mind, and certainly not a piece of her heart.

Book False Memory  False  1

Download or read book False Memory False 1 written by Meli Raine and published by Meli Raine. This book was released on 2019-08-15 with total page 217 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: It all started with the bereavement flowers with my name on them. Not the best way to wake up, right? I work in a flower shop. I know a funeral arrangement when I see one. I know a killer when I see one, too. And one is standing in my hospital room right now, straight behind the man who saved my life. I can’t tell anyone the truth, because that’s the fastest way to really die. So I do the next best thing. I “lose” my memory. I fake my amnesia. Pretending not to remember a brutal attempted murder has its perks. The killer is backing down, spending less time around me, loosening the noose. The less I claim to recall, the more my rescuer, Duff, works to help me “remember.” I hate lying to him. But he doesn’t understand that my memory is dangerous. To me. And to him. Fooling everyone isn’t easy. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Except it’s starting to look like I’ve been fooling myself. In more ways than one. Read Book 1 in the newest series from USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine. “The first book in the False trilogy is a psychological thriller worthy of Hitchcock, keeping you guessing until the very end. Lily Thornton is the ultimate unreliable narrator — after waking from a 14-month coma, she struggles to remember the day she was shot. As Lily slowly recovers, she’s terrified when she recognizes the face of her would-be killer among her inner circle — but can she trust her own memory? With potential enemies at every turn, a twisty political conspiracy, and just a hint of romance, False Memory offers thrills that will delight both romance and mystery readers.” — Apple Books Editors “…intrigue and dark humor on display in this thriller…” While the immediate—and more compelling—tension in Raine’s (A Shameless Little Bet, 2018, etc.) heart-pumping series opener comes from Lily’s constant proximity to her would-be killer, the action takes place against a backdrop of secret government scandals. Fortunately, Lily’s voice is captivating, wry, and tough enough to sell this thriller. The novel ends with a cliffhanger that startles, if only because readers will have become so attached to Lily. — Kirkus Reviews Praise for Meli Raine’s books: “Fresh, riveting, and thrumming with emotion and romantic suspense, False Memory is absolutely unputdownable. You need this book!” - New York Times bestselling author Meghan March “I accidentally lost a day to this trilogy! It is unputdownable. Apparently I'm on a dark-and-twisty binge, and this book is addictive.” - USA Today bestselling author Sarina Bowen (Harmless series)

Book The Awakening

  • Author : Kate Chopin
  • Publisher : Modernista
  • Release : 2024-01-16
  • ISBN : 9180945252
  • Pages : 177 pages

Download or read book The Awakening written by Kate Chopin and published by Modernista. This book was released on 2024-01-16 with total page 177 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In late 19th-century New Orleans, social constraints are strict, especially for a married woman. Edna Pontellier leads a secure life with her husband and two children, but her restlessness grows within the confined societal norms, and the expectations placed upon her – from her husband and the world around her – create increasing pressure. During a trip to Grand Isle, an island off the coast of Louisiana, her life is turned upside down by an intense love affair, and passion forces her to question the foundations of her – and every woman’s – existence. Kate Chopin's novel The Awakening caused a scandal with its outspokenness when it was published in 1899. The novel’s openly sexual themes and disregard for marital and societal conventions led to it not being reprinted for fifty years. It wasn't until the 1950s that Chopin’s work was rediscovered, and The Awakening received significant acclaim. Today, it is not only seen as an early feminist milestone but also as a classic. KATE CHOPIN [1851–1904] was born in St Louis. She had six children during her marriage, and it wasn't until after her husband's death in 1882 that she emerged as a writer. She published short stories in magazines such as Vogue and The Atlantic, gaining appreciation and recognition for her depictions of the American South. However, she was also criticized for her disregard for social traditions and racial barriers.
