At times, seasons change far too fast, leaving restless hearts longing for the past. Any thoughts of a tranquil Indian summer weekend alone with her husband, Griffin, at their Adirondack Mountains lake cabin vanish like the early setting sun for Deidra. As a decade of estrangement weighs heavily upon them, her resistance to allow her frigid emotional walls to fall leads to heartbreaking confrontations with both Griffin and their adult son, Lucas. Gripped by the fear of losing them both, she worries that it’s too late to erase a lifetime of regrets. Breaking free of her past is Deidra’s only path to salvation. Despite her years of terrible behavior toward her husband and son, both of their admissions that they still love her becomes a lifeline she clings to. As she manages through the emotional ruins to find her way back to them, her own heart begins to heal from a self-inflicted torture. And she finds that the changing of the seasons is as ever constant as is love itself. READER ADVISORY: Fair warning, dear readers. One or more characters might leave you heartbroken but keep reading. Love is as eternal as the seasons. PUBLISHER NOTE: Family Drama. Second-Chance Romance 37,300 words. All characters depicted in this work of fiction are 18 years of age or older.

Ecclesiastes 3 says there is a time and a season for everything and then lists those points in our lives when we experience the good and the bad. Lifes ups and downs are all a part of, and determined by, the spiritual seasons in which we find ourselves. In Walk in Your Season, author Anita Wamble shares a scriptural-based look at how these seasons affect our lives. She discusses how we spiritually enter a new season (spring), journey through trials and tribulations (summer), bloom (autumn or harvest), and go into dormant (winter) seasons as God dictates. Using everyday items such as seeds, soil, land, water, and tools to discuss spiritual seasons, spiritual planting, spiritual sowing, and spiritual reaping, Walk in Your Season helps you identify your current season, accept the season youre in, walk in your current season as you prepare for the next season, and prepare yourself for your harvest season. Through the essential elements of prayer, Gods word, praise, and obedience, Wamble shares what shes learned about the seasons to let others know theres more to their lives than what they are living and to help them achieve their God-given destinies.

"The authors examine franchising systems that allow the public and private sectors to work together and consider ways governments and landowners can be good stewards of the public's wildlife using recreation, tax advantages, and cost shares as incentives. Although any enfranchisement system will have problems, the authors show that these problems can be overcome with cooperation and intelligent planning."--BOOK JACKET.

A wonderfully witty and entertaining retelling of a little-known yet very important period of Australia's history, this is a fictionalized account of acclaimed Australian writer Elizabeth Stead's experiences in a 1940s postwar housing commission camp. It's November 1948, and the widowed Hanora Sparrow and her teenage daughters, Aria and Rosy, have fallen on tough times; when they move into a housing commission camp on the outskirts of Sydney, their spirits are low and their prospects few. While Hanora copes via various pharmaceutical offerings and Rosy with nothing other than indignity, the spirited Aria rises immediately to the challenge of keeping the family together in such trying circumstances. With her endless curiosity and lively sense of humor, Aria draws the Sparrow women into close friendships with other camp residents and supports her family through her work as a photographic model in the city. Despite the setbacks, Aria strives toward their eventual salvation.

There are very few coaches held higher esteem than Bo Schembechler. As coach of the University of Michigan football team, he won 13 Big Ten titles and finished as the winningest coach in their storied history. But beyond the wins and losses, Bo is best remembered for the remarkable impact he had on his players and fans alike. In Bo's Lasting Lessons, the coach draws on his years of experience, using first-person anecdotes to deliver timeless lessons on leadership, motivation and responsibility. His distinctive gruff voice leaps from the page. With pithy language, Bo explains that true leadership requires the compassion to actively listen to your people, and then to have the courage to do what is right every time. A big believer in peer pressure and in always making his players accountable for their actions, Schembechler has coached athletes who went on to become professional football players, doctors, lawyers and CEOs.

Located at Pomona Lake 35 miles south of Topeka, they ran the theatre sixteen seasons beginning in 1970.

He helped to get Ginger started in her career, managing her Vaudeville tour for two years, 1926-1927. This book is Veda's story-the story of Vassar Playhouse-her family, the players, their griefs and their joys. But-because of her husband, Bruce, Ginger also plays a part. This story is for anyone who has ever put his/her feet on stage. Curtain Everyone!
