BOOK EXCERPT:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From Danielle Steel comes the gripping story of a woman who loses everything—her husband, her home, her sense of self and safety, and her freedom. Sydney Wells’s perfect life with her wealthy, devoted husband vanishes when he dies suddenly in an accident. Widowed at forty-nine, she discovers he has failed to include her in his will. With Andrew’s vicious daughters in control of his estate, and no home or money, Sydney finds a job in fashion, despite her own designer daughters’ warnings. Naïve, out of her element, and alone in a world of shady international deals and dishonest people, she is set up by her boss and finds herself faced with criminal prosecution. What happens when you lose everything? Husband, safety, protection, money, and reputation gone, faced with prison, Sydney must rebuild her life from the bottom to the top again, with honor, resourcefulness, and dignity. Sydney finds herself, as well as courage and resilience. Taking life by the horns, she revives her own career as a talented designer, from New York to Hong Kong, risking all in an exotic, unfamiliar world. She is determined to forge a new life she can be proud of.

BOOK EXCERPT:

"GRACE fights the lump RISING in her throat. For a MOMENT she is LOST in thought, remembering WHAT IT HAS TAKEN to get TO THIS POINT..."Grace Cambridge is a young Black Christian with a new husband, old friends, and a shocking moral dilemma. A proverbial "cat fight" opens the story and draws you into a complex relational web. The book peels through layers of dysfunction between Grace and Trina and follows their individual, sometimes intertwining, lives to reveal how they find their way back to Christ and to each other. Grace is intelligent, determined, well-spoken yet vulnerable. You want her to be happy, you want her to succeed. Grace's Christianity isn't sugar-coated. Her faith is real and so is her life---riddled with plenty of twists, turns, and conflicts. As Grace's relationship with God is challenged she questions her identity and is faced with a life-changing decision. She deals with everyday issues, sometimes successfully; sometimes not. Grace's experiences are not much different than yours---how she handles them might be.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Originally published in 1989 to great acclaim, D'Antonio immersed himself in the culture of "born-again" America" for two years, travelling the country and interviewing members of fundamentalist communities. He has written a compelling book that documents not just the well-known leaders of the movement, but the lives of the followers as well. "A balanced and thought-provoking analysis of the rise and fall of America's Christian Right. . . . D'Antonio interviews members of Houston's Second Baptist Church, a born-again couple on Long Island, doctors at Oral Roberts University Medical Center, and even Christians who fight communism in Honduras, with the intent not to necessarily criticize but to explain what drives people . . . into an extremist adherence to tasteless "televangelism." D'Antonio weaves into his coverage . . . summaries of the scandals that have rocked the ministries of the Bakkers, Jimmy Swaggart, and other fraudulent media money grubbers, but he also does a good job of describing the political links between the Fundamentalists and the Republican party.. . . D'Antonio legitimately documents . . . the reasons why many Americans feel a void in their ever-more-modern, high-tech-oriented lives."--Martin Brady, Booklist
