Numbed by grief and harboring shameful secrets, Lt. Adler Paxton ships to England with the US 357th Fighter Group in 1943. Determined to become an ace pilot, Adler battles the German Luftwaffe in treacherous dogfights in the skies over France as the Allies struggle for control of the air before the D-day invasion.

Drawn to the mysterious Adler, she enlists his help with her work and urges him to reconnect with his family after a long estrangement. Despite himself, Adler finds his defenses crumbling when it comes to Violet. But D-day draws near. And secrets can't stay buried forever.

The Sky Above Us

The Sky Above Us

What is a star? Why is the sun so hot? Why does the moon seem to change its shape? And why is the sky blue? These are just some of the questions answered in The Sky Above Us: Astronomy for Teenagers.

What is a star? Why is the sun so hot? Why does the moon seem to change its shape? And why is the sky blue? These are just some of the questions answered in The Sky Above Us: Astronomy for Teenagers.Astronomy is the science of the sky, and is presumably the oldest of all the sciences. The sky is always with us; even cavemen of long ago must have looked up and tried to understand what they saw. At first they thought the Earth was flat, lying in the center of the Universe with all the objects in the sky moving around it and it was hard for them to realize that this was in fact wrong.Astronomy has changed dramatically in the last sixty years, and what was once regarded as out of this world has now become part of our everyday lives. Satellites are circling the Earth, and rockets have been sent to explore many of the planets of our Solar System.The Sky Above Us gives a general outline of what Astronomy is all about and shows that there is much to learn, whether you are ten, fifteen, twenty, or even eighty years old! Everyone can take an interest in Astronomy, at any level, without the need of expensive telescopic equipment. It is only natural to look up at the night sky and ask What star is that? You could be looking at a Red Giant Star, large enough to swallow many millions of suns, or a fiercely hot White Star, the light from which has taken centuries to reach us. You could even be looking at a planet from our own Solar System. Dip into the pages of this book to discover just what it is that makes up the fascinating sky above us."

This book is intended as an aid to believers in developing a daily time of morning revival with the Lord in His word. At the same time, it provides a limited review of the semi-annual training held December 26-31, 2016, in Anaheim, California, on the “Crystallization-study of Ezekiel.” Through intimate contact with the Lord in His word, the believers can be constituted with life and truth and thereby equipped to prophesy in the meetings of the church unto the building up of the Body of Christ.

He was particularly struck by the final sentence, which cited Kant: 'There are two things which raise man above himself and lead to eternal, ever-increasing admiration: the moral law within us, and the starry sky above us.

This major new study of Beethoven and his music is written as a single, continuous narrative, using a strictly chronological approach that enables each work to be seen against the musical and biographical background from which it emerged. The result is a much closer integration of life and works than is often achieved. The approach works particularly well for Beethoven for two reasons. Firstly, composition was his central preoccupation for most of his life: 'I live entirely in my music', he once wrote. Secondly, recent study of his large numbers of musical sketches has enabled a much clearer picture of his everyday compositional activity than was previously possible, leading to many new insights into the interaction between his life and music. The volume concentrates on Beethoven's artistic achievements both by examining the origins of his works and by commentary on some of their most striking and original features. Statements in earlier biographies have been treated with caution, and have been accepted only where they are supported by sound evidence. Everything-even down to the translations of individual German words-has been reassessed as far as is feasible, in an effort to avoide recycling old errors. Many well-known but fictitious anecdotes have thereby been eliminated, while conversely numerous details discovered in recent years have been incorporated into a general Beethoven biography for the first time-notably information derived from sketch studies and from a new edition for correspondence. This volume reaches many fresh conclusions that should be of interest to both specialists and the general musical public. -

In the Lord’s recovery during the past five hundred years the church’s knowledge of the Lord and His truth has been continually progressing. This monumental and classical work by Brother Witness Lee builds upon and is a further development of all that the Lord has revealed to His church in the past centuries. It is filled with the revelation concerning the processed Triune God, the living Christ, the life-giving Spirit, the experience of life, and the definition and practice of the church. In this set Brother Lee has kept three basic principles that should rule and govern every believer in their interpretation, development, and expounding of the truths contained in the Scriptures. The first principle is that of the Triune God dispensing Himself into His chosen and redeemed people; the second principle is that we should interpret, develop, and expound the truths contained in the Bible with Christ for the church; and the third governing principle is Christ, the Spirit, life, and the church. No other study or exposition of the New Testament conveys the life nourishment or ushers the reader into the divine revelation of God’s holy Word according to His New Testament economy as this one does.

The Lancasters looked like enormous deadly black birds going off into the night; somehow they looked different when they came back. The planes carried from this field 117,000 pounds of high explosives and the crews flew all night to drop the load as ordered. Now the trains would not run between France and Italy for a while, not on those bombed tracks anyhow. Here are the men who did it, with mussed hair and weary faces, dirty sweaters under their flying suits, sleep-bright eyes, making humble comradely little jokes and eating their saved-up chocolate bars' _ Martha Gellhorn??This riveting and highly intriguing collection of pilot and civilian reminiscences works to commemorate the spirit of the almighty Lancaster bomber. Each chapter is dedicated to a unique individual or group of individuals who took part in its history in some capacity. Be they pilot, civilian, or journalist, each played their own part and their accounts offer a host of fascinating insights. ??Episodes featured include the battle for Munich and the Nuremburg and Berlin Raids. Stories of PoWs downed in their Lancasters and captured in enemy territory also feature, communicating a real sense of peril experienced behind enemy lines. Two sections of fascinating black and white photographs supplement and complete this trawl through the history of the Lancaster bomber and the men and women who witnessed its glory days.
