This is a story of sibling rivalry, poverty and war--of unrequited love and a Canadian dream but much more than that, it is a story that takes today’s reader through the most momentous period of our history--a time when millions, having barely survived the misery and deprivation of the greatest financial crisis in history, were almost immediately plunged into the greatest military conflict in world history. Being set in London’s east end, that bore the brunt of Hitler’s Blitz serves in many ways to bring the sacrifices of that time into sharp focus giving the reader an insight into how the people were forced to deal with tragedy and loss in a way that today’s generation might find almost callous. But then it was a time that personified Shakespeare’s immortal words--”The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune” and how that outrageous fortune can send us down paths and in directions we never dream of. Above all, it is a story told by someone who lived it.

Frank May is back and more hesitant than ever to get involved. But a mystery finds him anyway, too bizarre for him to ignore. Many people believe in life after death, but how many believe in murder after death? Or at least the revelation of a murder from a dead mother? Frank’s rich client Morris Gross firmly believes he had an out-of-body experience and went to heaven, where he met his dead mother. She makes the startling statement that somebody killed her—that she didn’t die a natural death as everyone assumed. Morris freely shares his story with a polite but skeptical Frank May. If that isn’t strange enough, Morris soon joins his mother—thanks to the bullet from a murderer's pistol. Now Frank has to deal with the estate of a murder victim, who may have been killed by someone who also dispatched his late mother. He also has to deal with the sometimes greedy, and always eccentric, heirs to Morris's fortune. Led by the free-living nephew Sebastian, the family confounds Frank and tests his patience, all while he strives to uncover the truth about the mother's death . . . so he can solve the mystery of her son’s murder. It may be just one loose thread too many for the lawyer-turned-reluctant-detective to spin together into a fabric that makes sense. Law professor Lawrence Friedman's latest novel is in the series The Frank May Chronicles, from Quid Pro Books. Previous mysteries in the series include The Book Club Murder, Death of a One-Sided Man, Who Killed Maggie Swift?, An Unnatural Death, and Death of a Wannabe.

Wounded soul, tears of a battle cry. A crushed soul wanting to die. Hopes of despair, does anyone care? Broken dreams, broken promises, lies and betrayal. Everything I pursue crumbles before my eyes. My hopes and dreams fail. Overwhelmed with defeat I give up, wondering if in this world Satan has beaten me. Sometimes I lie and wait, "Oh, why won't death overtake me?" My soul has hope; my soul wants to live. However my flesh is weak, my flesh is tired of hurting. Through many nights I lay awake wondering if ever my suffering will cease. One of the greatest lies from Satan is convincing you that no one knows that your pain hurts so much that when you lay down at night you beg not to wake up the next day. However one day I heard about a man named Jesus, how he loved me while I was suffering, how he loves me right now in the midst of my trials and tribulations. He not only wants to comfort and heal my wounds but he wants to comfort and heal yours, too.

When Charlie's brother, Joe, is called up to fight in World War II, he promises to write letters to ten-year-old Charlie as often as he can. It won't make up for not being there to help Charlie out with the neighborhood bullies, but it's all Joe can do. Life is tough for a soldier, and Joe tells Charlie all about it, from long hikes in endless rain and mud to the stray dog his company adopts. But when Joe is sent on a secret mission with the one soldier he can't stand, he will have to face risks that place their mission -- and their lives -- in grave danger. Charlie knew his brother was strong, but he will discover that Joe is more of a hero than he lets on. Will Joe's letters give Charlie the strength to stand up for himself and be brave, too?

Sie sind erbitterte Feinde, als sie am 20. Dezember 1943 in über acht Kilometern Höhe aufeinandertreffen: der Amerikaner Charlie Brown in seinem vom Flakfeuer schwer beschädigten B-17-Bomber und der deutsche Jagdflieger Franz Stigler, der den gegnerischen Piloten einfach nur vom Himmel holen müsste, – doch er tut es nicht. Stattdessen gibt Stigler dem Bomber Geleit über die deutsche Flugabwehr hinweg bis auf die Nordsee hinaus und rettet Brown und seiner gesamten Besatzung das Leben. Die Geschichte der beiden Fliegerasse ist Legende. Und sie ist wahr. Der Historiker und Journalist Adam Makos hat sich, unterstützt von Starautor Larry Alexander, jahrelang bis ins kleinste Detail mit den Ereignissen beschäftigt und die Beteiligten getroffen. Eine höhere Pflicht ist kein Buch über einen kurzen Augenblick des Mitleids, sondern ein Buch darüber, was es bedeutet, in einem Krieg Pilot zu sein, und was für einer Pflichtverletzung es gleichkam, so zu handeln, wie es Franz Stigler richtig erschien. Es ist ein Buch auch über die Freundschaft, die Charlie Brown und Franz Stigler seit ihrem Wiedersehen 1990 verband – bis zu ihrem Tod 2008. Die wunderbare Geschichte eines deutschen Helden.

What is it like to grow up with a sibling on the autism spectrum? What kind of relationship do such siblings have? How does that relationship change as the siblings get older? In this moving collection of beautifully-written personal accounts, siblings from a variety of backgrounds, and in different circumstances, share their experiences of growing up with a brother or sister with autism. Despite their many differences, their stories show that certain things are common to the "sibling experience": the emotional terrain of looking on or being overlooked; the confusion of accommodating resentment, love, and helplessness; and the yearning to connect across neurological difference. Siblings and Autism is a thought-provoking book that will appeal to anyone with a personal or professional interest in autism, including parents of siblings of children on the spectrum, teachers, counsellors, and psychologists.
