A collection of commonsense wisdom and wise advice.
Who killed Jessica Halliday? She was a nineteen-year-old college student with a bright future before her. No one at her former high school can imagine who would want to murder this charismatic young woman; but Teddy Thurber, Jessica’s former teacher, thinks the answer might lie in a book that Jessica had given her months before.
Teddy begins to try to follow the trail of clues Jessica left behind in order to find the truth about her former student’s death; in the process she must delve into the literature that Jessica loved best, and what she finds reveals unsavory details about other students, teachers, and even Jessica’s family.
Helping Teddy is the new history and psychology teacher, Derek Jonas, who ends up having secrets of his own . . . . As her search for Jessica intensifies, she must also deal with the unwelcome advances of an old boyfriend, complicating her life even further.
Teddy’s persistence puts her and the ones she loves in danger; but she can do no less than try to avenge the murder of a promising young woman whose future success had been assured.
At her side throughout this mystery is her faithful beagle, P.G.
ERNEST AND EUPHEMIA KRAMER spent twenty-one years taking the Christian message and practical help to the Aborigines and settlers of Central Australia’s harsh, forbidding outback. After ten years travelling the countryside in a flimsy cart drawn by horses or donkeys, they settled in Alice Springs. For the next eleven years Ernest spent six months of each year travelling the outback with two Aboriginal helpers and a team of camels. Among his friends in Alice Springs were Dr John Flynn, Professors Ted Strehlow and John Cleland, Doctor Charles Duguid and Pastor Friedrich Albrecht. In April 1977 the Kramer Memorial Church was erected in his honour in Parke Terrace, Alice Springs.

The only substantial text of a series of lectures on Shakespeare by S T Coleridge is that provided by J P Collier’s Seven Lectures on Shakespeare and Milton
(1856). His text of these important lectures given by Coleridge in 1811-12 has been the basis of all modern editions. This edition is based on hitherto unpublished transcripts of the lectures made by Collier when, as a young man, he attended Coleridge’s lectures. R A Foakes’ introduction and appendices demonstrate the extent to which Collier revised and altered Coleridge’s words for the edition he published forty-five years later. This volume therefore provides a much more authoritative text of Coleridge’s most important Shakespeare lectures.
Destiny waits for all… especially a headstrong princess. Royal blood can take a princess only so far in life. Sooner or later destiny will sweep her off her feet. If she’s lucky, he’s tall, blond, fun to push around, and helps her save their ice ball planet from a killer comet. Content warning: this is a sexy hot read that has graphic sex, lots of ice, hot springs and touch of bondage for fun. This is a futuristic, Sci-Fi, with erotic and paranormal elements.
Awaiting his trial on charges of impiety and heresy, Socrates encounters Euthyphro, a self-proclaimed authority on matters of piety and the will of the gods. Socrates, desiring instruction in these matters, converses with Euthyphro, but as usual, the man who professes to know nothing fares better than the man who claims to be an expert.
One of Plato’s well-known Socratic Dialogues, Euthyphro probes the nature of piety, and notably poses the so-called Euthyphro Dilemma: Do the gods love a thing because it is holy, or is a thing holy because it is loved by the gods?
Stories also have stories. Circle’s begins in the Odyssey, on the island of Aiaia that Homer dreamed for her, in the chambers of the palace where she richly entertained Odysseus and in her sty full of sailors turned pigs.
