Download Love's Dark Edge PDF by Douglas C. Myers, PhD Full Free and published by Insightful Gains Unlimited. This book was released on 2014-07-31 with total page 150 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Everyone has the inherent right to feel loved unconditionally and be able to love fully. However, not all are able to sip from desire's cup filled with contentment. For many, the obscurity of night is extended without knowing of the dawn's resurrecting influence. Love relies on spirited recovery during the course of an endless journey. Each new dawn faithfully restores hope for the realization of purposeful possibilities during the day that follows. It is an awakening to the restoration of light. The certainty of dawn's repeated triumph over darkness exemplifies love's faithful and trustworthy nature. If sincere affection is a measure of feeling fulfilled, then what is love and how is it realized? Why is heartfelt love difficult to experience or maintain for many? What does it mean to 'fall in love'? What is fear's influence when seeking love's affirmation? These are some of the challenges in comprehending the mystery of love and its reward presented in this writing. The written text identifies what is necessary to feel loved as a child and to love fully as an adult. Requirements for experiencing the fullest extent of love are chronicled in the section 'Requisites Of Love', while also emphasized throughout the narrative presentation. Original poems of the author throughout the writing are dedicated to all who cherish the imaginative and sensitive emotion elicited through lyric expression. Each subchapter listing of love's requisites includes a poetic introduction. The concluding subchapter, 'Answering Love's Call', is a novel revelation of adventure and passion. It includes a final poem by the author of desire's accomplishment titled 'Awakening'. (Screen Reader Supported with Enhanced Typesetting) Recommended: This book will challenge you to evaluate and confront your courage on several levels. It will also expose your relationship with fear even if you didn't think you had one. You write about feelings which is desperately needed and rarely understood. The role of faith as opposed to fear is key. 'Letting go' allows a way for hope to take root and see a different future. Your poetry is deeply touching to me. I especially honed in on your thoughts in 'To Be, Or Not!', 'Timeless Treasure!', and 'Awakening!'. Overall, your book gives hope. Hope for our personal journey as well as a parent and partner. It allows us to get unstuck in parenting. This is a writing that 'stays with you', It leaves a mark on your soul. How do I know this?

Download Dancing in the Wild Spaces of Love PDF by James H. Olthuis Full Free and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2022-06-08 with total page 294 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the twenty-first century, amid globalized violence, rising demagogues, and the climate emergency, contemporary philosophers and theologians have begun to debate a fundamental question: Is our reality the result of the overflowing, ever-present creativity of Love, or the symptom of a traumatic rupture at the heart of all things? Drawing on decades of research in postmodern philosophy and experience as a psychotherapist, James H. Olthuis wades into this discussion to propose a radical ontology of Love without metaphysics. In dialogue with philosophers like John D. Caputo, Slavoj Žižek, Luce Irigaray, and others, Olthuis explores issues from divine sovereignty and the problem of evil to trauma and social ethics. Experience in therapeutic work informs these investigations, rooting them in journeys with individuals on the path to healing. Olthuis makes the bold claim that while trauma, pain, and suffering are significant parts of our human lives, nevertheless Love is with us to the very end. Creation is a gift that comes with a call to make something of it ourselves, a risky task we must take on with the promise that Love will win. We are all dancing in the wild spaces of Love: ex amore, cum amore, ad amorem.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The illustrated book with narrative and lyric support is a sharing of experiences captured by the author / poet / photographer. It embraces a rich and romantic tradition that has remained virtually unchanged in historically preserved areas of Mexico. Pueblos presented are in areas of Puerto Vallarta in the state of Jalisco, Cuyutlán in the state of Colima, and Zihuatanejo, or 'Zihua' as it is affectionately known, in the state of Guerrero along Mexico's west coast. The more recent development of Ixtapa near 'Zihua' is included while not claiming the same historical prominence as with the other locations. Also included is the coastal pueblo of Loreto located in the state of Baja California Sur on the shore of the Sea of Cortez. The village is known for its historical importance and ecological resource opportunities. Each chapter is a montage photo presentation illustrating the rustic pueblo environment and lifestyle often missed by the casual outsider while visiting the area. Included also are original poems by the author written from experience to introduce and enhance the visual presentation of each location. Throughout is portrayed the magic of Mexico as a dedication to its humble and proud tradition. The storyline viewing is of a personally passionate journey welcomed by casual congeniality, exotic food and drink, and a stimulating environment. Viewing the photos with narrative and lyrics will be nostalgic for some and a vicarious new adventure for others. All will be exposed to a gentle culture embraced and preserved by each of the four Mexican locations bordering the Pacific Coast and Sea of Cortez. (Screen Reader Supported with Enhanced Typesetting)

But after her uncle Toby, a renowned ghost hunter, is killed in a fall off a cliff, she must drive to the seaside village of Rothewell to pack up his belongings. Almost immediately, unsettling incidents—a book left in a cold stove, a gate swinging open on its own—escalate into terrifying events that convince Jillian an angry spirit is trying to enter the house. Is it Walking John, the two-hundred-year-old ghost who haunts Blood Moon Bay? And who beside the ghost is roaming the local woods at night? If Toby uncovered something sinister, was his death no accident? The arrival of handsome Scotland Yard inspector Drew Merriken, a former RAF pilot with mysteries of his own, leaves Jillian with more questions than answers—and with the added complication of a powerful, mutual attraction. Even as she suspects someone will do anything to hide the truth, she begins to discover spine-chilling secrets that lie deep within Rothewell…and at the very heart of who she is.

Download Discursos e Identidades en la Ficción Romántica / Discourses and Identities in Romance Fiction PDF by María Isabel González-Cruz Full Free and published by Vernon Press. This book was released on 2022-03-01 with total page 406 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Despreciado por la crítica por su condición de literatura popular y femenina, el género romántico no solo continúa imbatible en el mercado editorial con su elevado índice de ventas, sino que en las últimas décadas está siendo objeto de interesantes estudios académicos. "Discursos e Identidades en la Ficción Romántica" se suma a esta corriente, al abordar el análisis interdisciplinar de un corpus de novelas publicadas en lengua inglesa entre 1955 y 2004. Ambientados en las islas atlánticas de Madeira y Canarias, estos textos encierran una variedad de discursos que ponen de manifiesto una visión muy anglófona de los lugares visitados por las protagonistas. Además del esperado discurso de género, en sus páginas se detecta un discurso del paraíso que resalta el exotismo de las islas, despertando en ocasiones la concienciación medioambiental, aunque también se perciben actitudes lingüísticas e incluso raciales, a medida que las autoras indagan en el descubrimiento del Otro. Ni los personajes ni los narradores son ajenos al choque de identidades y al contacto lingüístico (anglo-español y anglo-portugués), de manera que los conflictos que generan la identidad nacional, la identidad de género y la identidad étnica se vislumbran claramente tras la aparente sencillez de la intriga amorosa de este tipo de novelas. Disdained by critics for its status as popular and feminine literature, romance fiction not only remains unbeatable in the publishing market in terms of sales, but has also been the subject of interesting academic studies in recent decades. "Discourses and Identities in Romance Fiction" joins this trend by addressing the interdisciplinary analysis of a corpus of novels published in English between 1955 and 2004. Set on the Atlantic islands of Madeira and the Canaries, these texts develop a variety of discourses that reveal a very Anglophone vision of the places visited by their protagonists. In addition to the expected gender discourse, these romances tend to include a paradise narrative that highlights the exoticism of the islands, sometimes awakening environmental awareness. Linguistic and even racial attitudes also come to the forefront, as the writers explore and describe the features of the Other. Neither the characters nor the narrators are oblivious to the clash of identities and the linguistic contact (English-Spanish and English-Portuguese) exposed in this type of novels, revealing the conflicts generated by national, gender and/or ethnic identities behind the apparent simplicity of their love plots.

Download Almost Like Being in Love PDF by Beth K. Vogt Full Free and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2016-06-28 with total page 384 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the author of Somebody Like You, a RITA finalist, and one of Publishers Weekly’s top ten books of 2014, comes the story of a woman who has everything for a perfect wedding—except the groom! Winning an all-expenses paid Colorado destination wedding might seem like a dream come true for some people—but Caron Hollister and her boyfriend Alex Madison aren’t even engaged. How is she supposed to tell him she’s won their wedding and honeymoon when he hasn’t asked her to marry him? Being “perfect for one another” seems like the absolute best reason to get married. But what if their supposedly faultless relationship is merely a safe place to protect his secrets and a way to keep their families happy? After quitting her job, Caron accepts her best friend’s offer to visit Colorado. She needs to catch her breath. Who knows, maybe visiting the destination wedding site will make a future with Alex seem like a reality. Kade Webster just landed the biggest deal of his life with his company, Webster Select Realty, participating in the Colorado Springs Tour of Homes. He never imagined he would run into the woman who broke his heart—Caron Hollister—right when his career is taking off. Seeing her again, Kade can’t help but wonder why Caron walked away from him years ago, leaving him with no explanation. When Kade learns his home stager won’t be able to help with the Tour of Homes, he vaults past all the reasons he should stay away from Caron, and offers her a temporary job helping him on the project. This time, their relationship is purely business. Spending time with Kade has Caron questioning everything. The man intrigues her—at times infuriates her—and reminds her of what she lost. Has she been settling for what everyone expects of her? Just because others believe she and Alex are an ideal couple, does that mean they should get married? And how can Caron say “I do” to one man when she’s wondering “what if?” about another?
Download Helen in Love PDF by Rosie Sultan Full Free and published by Penguin. This book was released on 2013-11-26 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The astonishing and imaginative debut novel about Helen Keller and the man she loved What comes to mind when you think of Helen Keller? Is it the deaf-mute wild child at the water pump outside her Tuscumbia, Alabama, home portrayed in The Miracle Worker or the adult activist for the rights of the disabled and women, the socialist who vehemently opposed war? Rosie Sultan’s debut novel imagines an intimate part of Keller’s life she rarely spoke or wrote about: her one and only love affair. Peter Fagan, a reporter from Boston, steps in as her secretary when her companion Annie Sullivan falls ill. The world this opens up for her is not the stuff of grade school biographies. Their affair meets with stern disapproval from Annie and from Helen’s mother, and when the lovers plot to elope, Helen is trapped between their expectations and her innermost desires. Sultan’s courageous novel insists on Helen’s right to desire, to human frailty—to be fully and completely alive.
