Ashes Of Roses from the Author: MJ Auch. The honest and compelling story of a young girl's newfound independence, from her entrance into a new country to her frightening involvement in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911. My heart filled with fear and hope at the same time. I had the feeling that I was brought to America for a purpose. Something important would happen to me here. I remembered the words of the poem, "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses . . ." "Here we are, America," I whispered. "We're just exactly what you ordered." When she arrives on Ellis Island as a seventeen-year-old Irish immigrant, Rose Nolan is looking for a land of opportunities; what she finds is far from all she'd dreamed. Stubborn and tenacious, she refuses to give up. Left alone to fend for herself and her younger sister, Rose is thrust into a hard-knock life of tenements and factory work. When the devastating Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911 rushes into Rose's life, her confusions are brought to an all-too-painful head. To whom and to what can she turn when everything around her is in ashes?

Rising From The Ashes Of Loss from the Author: Pierre Milot. Death is inevitable and is an existential fear for all human beings. But it is the devastating thought of departing this earth alone and in agony that renders our inevitable transition such a fearful endeavour. For many, it is not so much facing the afterlife, as most religions provide some support in that area, but it is in the way we will end our lives that is the major source of concern. How many of us hope and pray to be blessed with an angel, a loved one that will give us the patient support and attend to our very needs during our last days? Such dedicated souls are few and far apart, and rare are the ones that will undertake that exhausting and onerous task. This book is about one of them though, Pierre, a loving husband who, without hesitation, put his life aside to become the sole caretaker of his wife, Louise, diagnosed with a devastating cancer.

Embers In The Ashes Of History And Indifference from the Author: Robert A. Bonner. in 1993 an historian wrote: “... The lynching was especially atrocious: Two young black men were seized, dragged into the woods, and there chained to trees and tortured to death with blowtorches while a howling crowd of whites cursed and taunted them. Photographs were made of the dead bodies....” (K.S. Davis) This historical novel – ground-breaking in its emotional and graphic intensity – portrays the impact of that atrocity (1937) on two empathetic boys who didn’t taunt, but secretly snapped pictures of the living, screaming victims (ironically, one given FDR’s surname) – and desperately tried to stop it! Two against 500 (some came by school bus). After failing, they fled in despair – but with their Brownie Eagle Eye. Now on a compelling mission – because they’d been ‘Ou t T h e r e .’ Shattered, then galvanized, by the failures and heart-breaks of Book I, ‘Einstein’ Brian and ‘Maestro’ Marcus become avenging angels in Book II, sworn to strike ‘Preacher-Creature Cecil’ and his ‘henchmen from hell’ with the swords of retribution, self-defense, and ‘un-Southern’ justice. Kids no more, they begin to act like God: ‘Somebody has to...!’ With images of brutality preserved in camera, conscience, and nightmares, they write to Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt, and accept their invitation to dinner at the White House. Re-committed to the most profound ‘what-if’ of the Twentieth Century, the boys mutually pledge themselves to a daunting ‘rendezvous with destiny.’ And a Time Capsule ticket to 5,000 years into the future from Albert Einstein....

Out Of The Ashes Of The Ruin from the Author: Lisa Keel Franks. I want to share my personal testimony to leave a legacy for the future generation to see how the LORD God desires relationship with us as His creation. Since the fall of man, we are all born into a sinful nature. It is up to each one of us on this journey of life to recognize the need for a Savior at the time it pleases God to reveal himself to you. Once your spiritual eyes are open, and you have allegiance with God through Christ Jesus, there will be trials and tribulations here on earth. I share to entice readers to consider their position with God and to encourage fellow Christians to overcome and live in victory. All the answers to life's concerns and the need for guidance are written in the Word of God, the Holy Inspired Bible. Our sacrifice is to praise Him, as singer Kristian Stanfill voiced in the lyrics: "Oh, Praise the one who paid my debt and raised this life up from the dead." Yes, He did. "I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship." Romans 12:1 ESV Tyler "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2 ESV Shane "Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer." Romans 12:12 ESV Jessica
