In 1916, the world is at war and the energetic Lady Montfort has persuaded her husband to offer his family’s dower house to the War Office as an auxiliary hospital for officers recovering from shell-shock with their redoubtable housekeeper Mrs. Jackson contributing to the war effort as the hospital’s quartermaster. Despite the hospital’s success, the farming community of Haversham, led by the Montfort’s neighbor Sir Winchell Meacham, does not approve of a country-house hospital for men they consider to be cowards. When Captain Sir Evelyn Bray, one of the patients, is found lying face down in the vegetable garden with his head bashed in, both Lady Montfort and Mrs. Jackson have every reason to fear that the War Office will close their hospital. Once again the two women unite their diverse talents to discover who would have reason to murder a war hero suffering from amnesia. Brimming with intrigue, Tessa Arlen's Death of an Unsung Hero brings more secrets and more charming descriptions of the English countryside to the wonderful Lady Montfort and Mrs. Jackson series.

This is the story of Jimmy Ray Lewis as told to William M Forsysthe. As a young boy growing up in the small West Texas Town of Childress, he and his family experienced firsthand two of the greatest catastrophes to hit America - the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. Despite his father working as a gambler and bootlegger to feed the family and his Uncles losing their family farms, his childhood was happy with memories of Tom Walkers and rubber gun fights, when doors were left unlocked and neighbors helped neighbors in need. At age 14, a bad reaction to a Tuberculosis patch test led to seven months isolation in a San Angelo TB sanatorium, the ostracism of Jimmy and his family, and a move to a new town - Wichita Falls - to escape the social rejection. During a WWII draft physical, he discovered his x-rays showed no evidence of the dreaded disease. Was it a miracle or a misdiagnosis four years previously? This is the first book in a series titled A Greatest Generation Account chronicling the life of a member of one of the Greatest Generation, an unsung hero who met difficulties head-on, made no excuses, and did the best he could do in trying and dangerous circumstances.

Follow Barabbas and enter into the world where he was the stepbrother of Jesus. Pontius Pilate said he was a notorious criminal, but everyone has a story. Where did he come from? How did he become Jesus's stepbrother? Let's go back in time and experience a land that was oppressed by Roman politics and corrupted by the Pharisees. Travel with Barabbas, along with Jesus and Mary Magdalene, across the desert and the plains of Judea, from when he was a child until the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem. While journeying down this trail, you will enter the minds and thoughts of people he met along the way. Judas, the betrayer of Jesus. The adulteress, the one who was redeemed by the sins of others. Pontius Pilate, who lived with a tight grip and a cold heart. Yes, it was Jesus's mission to travel around the country to spread the good news, but it took a team to thwart the power of Rome, Pharisees, and most of all, temptation. When you travel with Barabbas down the roads of Judea, you will discover the truth, which was always lying there, hiding in your heart.

Woodbine Willie was the affectionate nickname of the Reverend Geoffrey Studdert Kennedy, an Anglican priest who volunteered as a chaplain on the Western Front during the First World War. Renowned for offering both spiritual support and cigarettes to injured and dying soldiers, he won the Military Cross for his reckless courage, running into No Man's Land to help the wounded in the middle of an attack. After the war, Kennedy was involved in the Industrial Christian Fellowship, and he wrote widely. This superb biography is based on original interviews with those who knew and loved him. A deep and real concern for his fellow men drove him relentlessly, and this book shows how vital was the role he played, on the battlefields of the trenches and then the slums. Bob Holman, described by the Daily Telegraph as 'the good man of Glasgow', has made a mission of living alongside the disadvantaged of British society. An accomplished writer, who contributes regularly to the Guardian, he is the author of several books, including Keir Hardie (Lion Books).
