Until now, the life story of Albert Williamson Goldsmid, an extraordinary Victorian figure, has been known to comparatively few. Although born a Christian, he belonged to one of the oldest Jewish families in England. His parents left the fold of their fathers but Goldsmid, as a youngster, discovered his Jewish descent and returned to the ancestral faith. He rose to the rank of Colonel in the British Army, and a Member of the Victorian Order (MVO), and emerged over the years as an internationally known champion of his people's renaissance in their ancient homeland. Acclaimed as the model for George Eliot's Daniel Deronda, Goldsmid devoted all his gifts of heart and mind to both the service of his country and his Jewish people. He became an exalted symbol of British-Jewish harmony, and a glowing personification of the movement for Israel's restoration which was so indigenous to Victorian and post-Victorian England. This biography details British Jewish and Zionist politics from a fresh perspective, one from within that community, through the eyes of a personage.

Daniel Prentice's technological skill helped save the world from the deadly impact of Y2K in the popular thriller Flee the Darkness. But that victory didn't stop the encroaching evil. In this gripping sequel, tension mounts in the 21st century as a Russion-Arab invasion of Jerusalem seems imminent. Now Daniel must guide NSA chief Captain Michael Reed in the battle ahead. More than a battle for the land, the offensive could be the fulfillment of Ezekiel's ancient biblical prophecy of Gog and Magog invading Israel. As the world shudders in response, the invaders offer Israel a choice: surrender or be obliterated. As the State of Israel fortifies itself against the coming onslaught of missiles, biological weapons, and an invasion force attacking from all four borders, Reed and his Israeli counterpart, Sergeant Major Devorah Cohen, exhaust every military resource to prevent a nuclear war. Soon Reed and Cohen realize that the real battle they face is one of spiritual origin-for which no military drill could prepare them. Will Michael and Deborah find faith to confront the enemy? Never have the forces of evil been stronger, the stakes higher, or the world's possible destruction nearer than By Dawn's Early Light.

This unforgettable volume combines the two novels written by Cortez Robinson. Enjoy your travels with me, as we journey back to a turbulent period of American History. Jasper County Part One & Two Jasper County breaks the stereotype of the Civil War era with an array of men and women who have much to lose and much to gain in the beloved red soil of Georgia. But their common love of the land and hatred of Yankees can't bridge differences born of class, money, and race. Jasper is home to plantation owner Frank Arlington who has a benevolent attitude towards his slaves, partly because he secretly loves Sara Brown, his house servant. His nemesis, James Fallen, is a bigoted small town lawyer, ever resentful of Arlington's chronic disrespect. When Arlington gives 40 acres of prime bottomland to George Brown, his illegitimate son by Sara, the local farmers are enraged. Fallen, courts their anger through the White Knights, a secret society that helps citizens, "when the law won't." And that is just the beginning. Murder, a savage war, and a fractured family at Arlington plantation ensue. The civil war is a tempest that ignites the best and worst in all characters Cortez Robinson

Plunged into a cylindrical tower by the late abbot Father Daniel, Fitz Michael Ghabron is chosen to escape off the isle with the last remaining relic of the monastery belonging to St. Columba. After following a mysterious angelic voice, Fitz finds himself in an unknown cave belonging to a Scottish hermit who belongs to the sacred order of monks called the Samhadi Paidraig. The two monastic warriors decide to seek out revenge on the pillaging Norsemen who have sacked their monastery called Patrick. The adventure to take the relic of the saint to the High King of Tara is sidetracked with a new and divine purpose, and also with a divine ax inherited by the Irish from Inuit Eskimo hunters.

An extraordinary masterpiece of German literature, now in a gripping new English translation Michael Kohlhaas has been wronged. First his finest horses were unfairly confiscated and mistreated. And things keep going worse—his servants have been beaten, his wife killed, and the lawsuits he pursues are stymied—but Kohlhaas, determined to find justice at all costs, tirelessly persists. Standing up against the bureaucratic machine of the empire, Kohlhaas becomes an indomitable figure that you can’t help rooting for from start to finish. Knotty, darkly comical, magnificent in its weirdness, and one of the greatest and most influential tales in German literature, this short novel, first published in German in 1810, is now available in award-winning Michael Hofmann’s sparkling new English translation.

Mid-19th century: The Civil War is raging, as is racial tension. Abby is the young, recently widowed wife of a Northern Civil War surgeon, who encounters many wealthy and unscrupulous men as she mourns the death of her husband. Her adopted son, Michael, falls in love with a former slave, Manda. They want to escape to a place where the social climate is different, away from prying eyes that judge and condemn. Michael and Manda travel by railroad from New York to California, where Manda would be recognized as Michael's common-law wife. They hope to begin a new life and start a vineyard. But fate deals them a different hand when Manda is abducted, first by Mormons, then soldiers, and later by a Chinese group in San Francisco involved in enslaving young women and sending them as concubines to Asia. Abby, Michael, and an older former slave, Betty, band together to bring Manda back. Each will have to make a sacrifice and each will be forever changed by a series of events that takes them places they never expected. Joel Berman writes a thrilling saga set against the backdrop of historical events: the atrocities of the Civil War, medicine in the mid-19th century, emancipation, the suffrage movement, the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad, the conversion from sailing ships to steam ships, and the influx of the opium trade into the United States.
