The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope is an unconventional and passionately romantic love story that is as breathtaking and wondrous as The Time Traveler’s Wife and The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. During WWII, teenager Evelyn Roe is sent to manage the family farm in rural North Carolina, where she finds what she takes to be a badly burned soldier on their property. She rescues him, and it quickly becomes clear he is not a man…and not one of us. The rescued body recovers at an unnatural speed, and just as fast, Evelyn and Adam fall deeply in love. In The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope, Rhonda Riley reveals the exhilarating, terrifying mystery inherent in all relationships: No matter how deeply we love someone, and no matter how much we will sacrifice for them, we can only know them so well…

Step into the woods - refuge and escape and home. Some go there to hike or fish. The people and projects presented in this book do so much more. Join them as they gather honey from wild hives and pick mushrooms from beneath secretive oaks. Build a cabin of your own, or a look out up in the treetops. Bike trails, walking paths, woodcrafts. Anything and everything to experience the forest, both architectural and intangible. With profiles and essays that inspire us to step off the beaten path and photographs that bring the experience home, Wildside is the guide to modern outdoor activities. Obi Kaufman's works of poetry and illustration echo the feeling and vibrations of the California wilderness. Working within the realm of conservation and possessing a passion for defending the wilderness, his creations spin a thread of environmental awareness and artistic honesty. Christian Watson interweaves tradition with his perspective as a millennial. He sheds technology and creature comforts to live within the world and the landscape. Juniper Ridge captures the scent and essence of the wild; their dedicated crew is at home crafting around a campfire and foraging for ingredients off forest trails. These members of the cast of characters, and of hunters and gatherers, share the joy they receive from existing with and within nature, side by side with the murmurs and growls of the outdoors. Wildside is their collective narrative.

The Awakening presents a profound yet simple message: how to awaken from emotional imprisonment and find psychological freedom. Many of us feel we are not living life to the full or living it as we should. Haunted by anxiety, we long for lifelines that can lift us out of the mundane into what Seamus Heaney called ‘the marvellous’. If you feel like this, then The Awakening may be for you. Drawing on the wisdom of ancient Ireland and using the symbol of the Celtic Cross as an image for how to live, Dr O’Connor shows us that we inhabit both a vertical and a horizontal life, which intersect where the eternal breaks into the everyday and ordinary activities are infused with an extraordinary purpose. Taking you beyond mindfulness and introducing delightful new concepts like ‘Mind-Flight’, this book uncovers the sparkling jewels buried in the rubble of life’s indifference. You can turn a tiny space into a palace, a misfortune into an opportunity, a disability into a blessing and fly when life expects you to fall. The Awakening, like the first light at Newgrange, will illuminate the hidden blessings in what may seem to be your darkened life.

Sveta's art is a state of consciousness as much as it is paper, pencils, and paint. How one can define this phenomenon? I considered myself fit to write about her art as I studied art all my life. First, as an artist, through countless art studios and five years of an art college, then as an art historian, as a philosopher of art, and then as a Jungian psychologist and philosopher. And now, looking at her addictive, colorful pages, I am at total loss. I am in awe. It is deeper than day can comprehend, â to borrow Nietzsche's expression, and layered with meaning one usually does not expect to find in art. First of all, Sveta's art is aesthetically beautiful. The composition, the flow and interaction of forms, the visual balance of the color are true. Her sense of when enough is enough is superb. Artist's Journal is a collection of the various artworks and musings of Sveta Alenina. This compilation of works ranges from Sveta's simple sketches to her short bursts of poetry. Consisting mostly of her various illustrations, this book is exactly what the title describes - the journal of an artist. If artworks could talk - this is how they would do it.
