Without a word to his mother or sister, he decides to make the long journey to a remote part of that enormous country. Once there, he begins to learn about the man his father once was, and how long-ago choices continue to echo throughout all of their lives.
Michael’s sister Emily is an immigration lawyer living in Manhattan and married to a white American. Her only connections to China are her family and her work. But when a case ends horribly she starts to question the choices she’s made. Their mother, Ling, worries that she's somehow driven her children away.
Though they are living the lives Ling and her husband sacrificed so much to give them, all three must decide where their happiness truly lies.

Jesus loves people. Wouldn't it make sense that those who claim to love Jesus would love the same people Jesus loves? Nouns need verbs, a requirement that's more than just a grammatical truth; it's a spiritual truth.
The noun Christian and the noun church require action verbs to fulfill their purpose. That's why Jesus invites Christians and churches everywhere to perform the greatest action of all: loving people. Jesus Prom is an extravagant party that celebrates the very people Jesus died to love. You will laugh and cry as you move through the pages of this book, and by the end of it, you'll want to join the dance.
In a distant war, in a city under siege, U.S. Ambassador John W. Blaney faced a terrible choice: abandon the mission or risk the lives of his team to give diplomacy a last chance... In 2003, Liberia was one of the most dangerous and isolated countries in the world.
President Charles Taylor, a feared warlord, presided over a fractured state and count unruly militiamen and child soldiers as two rebel armies marched to depose him. When an international court indicted Taylor for war crimes, the rebels attacked the capital and months of vicious fighting ensued. With Washington split on how to respond and pressure mounting to shutter the chancery once and for all, the Ambassador kept the flag flying. The U.S. embassy served as a rallying point for international efforts to save Liberia. West African peacekeepers backed by U.S.
forces prepared to deploy, but a final, merci attack by the rebels left the capital split and Taylor's forces dug in for a last, blood-soaked stand. With no margin for error, the Ambassador and his team made three forays across the front lines in a desperate bid to broker a local ceasefire that would lift the siege, stop the killing, and give space for peace to take root. The Embassy is a graphic, cinematic retelling of the harrowing climax of the Liberian civil war and the U.S.
and West African role in ending it. Through interviews with the Ambassador and key members of the country team, as well as with peacekeepers, U.
S. troops, relief workers, foreign correspondents, senior Liberian officials and rebel leaders, Dante Paradiso reconstructs the violence and chaos of those times to create an enduring portrait of a U.S. embassy under fire and the kind of daring frontline diplomacy that can change the fate of a nation. harrowing climax of the Liberian civil war.

: 'I have starved in some of the most beautiful places in the world ...' The Irish Times food writer Theodora FitzGibbon's bohemian appetite for love, pleasure, good food and adventure took her all over the globe until she died, in Dublin, in 1991. Her two-volume autobiography reveals a life fully lived: the names she used before settling on 'Theodora'; the cookery ons given to her by the former Queen Natalie of Serbia; the 1920s childhood spent on food-chomping travels with her rakish naval officer father in Europe, the Middle East and India. Paris in the 1930s was home to Theodora's struggles to maintain an independent life as a young actress, where she began an affair with photographer Peter Rose Pulham and kept company with Balthus, Cocteau, Dali and Picasso. She escaped wartime Paris to live in London during the Blitz and was friendly with Dylan and Caitlin Thomas, Augustus John, Francis Bacon, Shane Leslie and Soviet spy Donald Maclean.
She adopted Gwladys the penguin and Mouche the poodle.
She married Irish-American writer Constantine FitzGibbon in 1944 and divorced him fifteen famously stormy years later. In 1960 she married George Morrison, the film maker and archivist, and they lived together in Dalkey in the house with the 'sea at the bottom of the garden'. Be enthralled by the fascinating story behind the woman who broadened the culinary horizons of many people in Ireland and beyond. In this highly entertaining memoir, discover the sights, sounds and tastes of Theodora FitzGibbon - food writer, adventurer and thoroughly modern woman. 'Theodora FitzGibbon was the most extraordinary woman. If you read her autobiography you realise how many lives she led. And in fact how many people she was all rolled into one.' Maeve Binchy
"They're all above me," a young child whispers with awe, as she looks skyward to heaven. Of course she's speaking of angels, those magical guardians that children are irresistibly drawn to. In the next page we see a child climbing a tree and reaching for an alluring bunch of cherries as a watchful angel stands below, arms spread, ready to catch the cherry picker if he falls. "Beneath me, before me," the text continues. Page by page we see children sledding, answering questions in school, catching snowflakes on their tongues, as "my father's" Christian angels stand guard close by. Illustrator Barbara Hranilovich complements this tender text with all the richness it deserves in swirling, vivid pictures, seemingly made from chalk and watercolors. The book comes with a read-along cassette tape narrated by Gloria Gaither. (Ages 4 to 8) --Gail Hudson
