“The beautifully-drawn characters and rich history in With This Pledge work seamlessly to demonstrate that Christ’s love and romantic love can triumph even in our darkest moments.” —Lynn Austin, bestselling author of Legacy of Mercy What can a woman—a mere governess—do against the scourge of slavery? Elizabeth “Lizzie” Clouston’s quietly held principles oppose those of the Southern Cause—but when forty thousand soldiers converge on the fields of Franklin, Tennessee, the war demands an answer. The Carnton home, where she is governess, is converted into a Confederate field hospital, and Lizzie is called upon to assist the military doctor with surgeries that determine life or death. Faced with the unimaginable, she must summon fortitude, even as she fears for the life of Towny, her fiancé and lifelong friend. As a young soldier lies dying in Lizzie’s arms, she vows to relay his final words to his mother, but knows little more than the boy’s first name. That same night, decorated Mississippi sharpshooter Captain Roland Ward Jones extracts a different promise from Lizzie: that she intervene should the surgeon decide to amputate his leg. Lizzie is nothing if not a woman of her word, earning the soldiers’ respect as she tends to the wounded within Carnton’s walls. None is more admiring than Captain Jones, who doesn’t realize she is pledged to another. But as Lizzie’s heart softens toward the Confederate captain, she discovers that his moral ground is at odds with her own. Now torn between love, principles, and pledges made, she struggles to be true to her own heart while standing for what she knows is right—no matter the cost. From the pages of history and the personal accounts of those who endured the Battle of Franklin, Tamera Alexander weaves the real-life love letters between Captain Roland Ward Jones and Miss Elizabeth Clouston into a story of unlikely romance first kindled amid the shadows of war.

There was a time when bake sales, raffles, and the like provided non profit-making organizations with the funds they needed to flourish. Those days have long passed. Non-profit-making organizations now find themselves competing with one another for public and private sup port just to survive. The organizations that will survive are the ones that are not afraid of sophisticated fund-raising methods. Telephone fund raising is such a method. There is virtually no limit to the amount of money telephone fund raising can bring your organization. Telephone fund raising is so successful because it is personal. It allows for dialogue. More specifical ly, it allows the caller to answer questions, deal with complaints, negoti ate hard, and stress those aspects of the program that interest the poten tial contributor most. No method of fund raising other than a personal visit can do this. And, of course, visiting all your potential contributors personally would be impossible. This book provides you with all the information you need to devel op and maintain a lucrative telephone fund-raising program on your own. The general principles of telephone fund raising apply universally. Therefore, the principles will work for you, whatever your cause. They also will apply whatever your need. Whether you need a long-term telephone fund-raising program bringing in money at a steadily increas ing rate over the years or a short-term program lasting one month, one week, or even one day, this book is for you.

The New ''Golden'' Age of Unreason Chronicles of Dumb Statements and the Dumbasses (Mostly Politicians) Who Make Them

Its almost a universal phenomenon. Nobody knows when, how, and why it started, but society somehow allows their political leaders to get away with nearly anything, up to and including murder- at least in many countries in Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa, and Central and South America. Here in these United States of America, no one is suggesting (at least not me) that our political leaders are guilty of committing murders. To the extent that anybody can accuse them of such, its their enacting of lax gun laws at the behest of the NRA. Thanks to these laws, anyone applying for a permit to buy an automatic assault weapon is no more subjected to rigorous background check than they are buying candy. By this and this alone, U.S. politicians are partly to blame in the deaths of innocent people. Anyway, this book is not about murders or guns. In a way though, its about death- the death of reason and sense in politics. Its about some insidious behavior that politicians get away with. Society itself is to blame for tacitly permitting politicians to engage in such a behavior. So here in the United States, as is the case everywhere, politicians get away with too much: Corruption; lying or showing a disdain for facts; being lazy; stealing; and cheating on their spouses. We also allow them to make promises that they cant possibly keep- or never keeping promises that they can easily keep. We have put the bar for tolerable behaviors, or conduct expected of our leaders, very low. We have reached a stage where the moral code of our politicians is on par with, if not worse than, that of criminals. Well, this author decided to draw a line, a red line, if you want to be dramatic, on dumbassedness- or rather- on the dumb things that the people we look up to in society, especially our political leaders, say. They can get away with lying, being corrupt, etc., but they will not be let off so easily for saying things that are decidedly dumb. Just as Iran will hear from Israel and the U.S. if its nuclear (or as George W. Bush would say, nucular) ambitions crosses Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahus somewhat arbitrary red line, politicians here will hear from me if and when they cross my own arbitrarily laid dumbassedness red line. Like most citizens, Ill tolerate- barely- such maladapted behaviors of our politicians as corruption, cheating, infidelity, lying, not keeping campaign promises, etc., but not dumbassedness. This is what this book is about. This authors blood boils when he hears these stupid politicians, like Indianas U.S. Senate candidate, Richard Mourdock say such things as, A woman being raped and conceiving as a result, is in Gods grand scheme of things. That is, God wanted it that way, and therefore that the victim shouldnt be allowed to terminate such a pregnancy. Unlike most books, this is not one long, continuous story. One need not necessarily start reading from page one or chapter one successively to the last. One can jump around, or even begin with the last chapter. Every chapter is a stand-alone chapter. There is no continuity to worry about if you decide to read the book in a sort of haphazard manner. Youre going to encounter unbelievable dumbassedness of our politicians on every page.Politicians and other leaders of society may get away with having the morals and ethics of alley cats, but Ill be damned if Ill let them get away with the immaturity of pre-adolescents and the dumbassedness of a jackass. This is my raison detre, or if you want to be "religious" about it, its my calling.Let me add that had my sense of self-preservation not been so heightened, Id have moved to Russia to take on Emperor Vladimir Putin.But I dont like having Polonium-210 as part of my diet. Thank you and enjoy. Kabembo Chinku.
