Congdon lends her signature style of brilliant hand lettering to sage advice on such subjects as perseverance ("If you fell down yesterday, stand up today"—H.G. Wells), authenticity ("What should I be but just what I am?"—Edna St. Vincent Millay), and confronting fear ("Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced"—James Baldwin). Filled with uplifting reminders to seize the day, Fortune Favors the Brave demonstrates that when embarking on a new adventure, the right words of encouragement can be a priceless gift.

From inside an interrogation session with the Chinese Secret Police, a young American activist recounts her path into global human rights work—exploring critical lessons on privilege and compassion in the context of war and extreme suffering. When I was arrested by the Chinese military for launching a historic Tibetan Freedom protest, I knew every trial and lesson had been worth it—even if it meant facing a life in prison. After a childhood infused with esoteric Buddhist teachings, I was forged into a global activist through years of witnessing and collaborating in the dissent of women on the front lines of war. From villages in Nepal, to refugee camps in The Democratic Republic of Congo, to the streets of Bogota, Colombia, my initiation into human rights activism was raw and transformative. The bravery of those women bolstered me in my darkest hours of interrogation and torture by the Chinese Police, and it guides me now to share my true story—no matter the repercussions. This is not a tale the Chinese government wants told. During my years working in war zones, I often wondered if I’d have the courage to stand up to tyranny, to lay my life on the line to confront undeniable persecution. In 2007—on the slopes of Mt. Everest—I found out. Take a literary journey with me as I reveal the bumpy road I took to becoming my bravest self—learning to leverage a life of advantage, find a place for my own joy, and cultivate the courage needed to play a distinct role in history.

Many Canadians see the role their country’s military plays in Afghanistan as an anomaly. However, this assumption is far from the truth. As U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has commented, "Canadians are fierce fighters." Fortune Favours the Brave certainly proves this point in a collection of essays that showcases the fighting spirit and courage of Canada’s military. Daring actions featured in the book include the intrepid assault on the Fortress of Louisbourg and the cat-and-mouse struggle between Canadian partisans and Rogers’s Rangers in the Seven Years’ War in the 1750s; the seesaw battle for the Niagara frontier in the War of 1812; an innovative trench raid in the First World War; the valiant parachute assault to penetrate the Third Reich in the Second World War; the infamous battle at Kap’yong in the Korean War; covert submarine operations during the Cold War; the Medak Pocket clash in Croatia in the early 1990s; and Operation Medusa in Afghanistan.

In 1939 the tiny village of Haven, Wisconsin was like thousands of other villages in middle America. The Citizens were hard working, religious, their marriages lasted, and they paid their taxes, sent sons to war, and lived in what appeared to be total contentment. Hidden quietly beneath the surface of all this was a real potential for explosion. They were volatile without knowing it. The thing that would spark this volatility was any infringement of The Ten Commandments and anything at all having to do with sex. This story tells about one such explosion. This is a comedy, but only to the reader. Haven, in this spring of 1939, is a visited by a sexual rumor that concerns one of their most stalwart citizens, the village jeweler who also happens to be the village's undertaker. His family has been this for several generations. He sings a weekly solo in church. He is a monument to virtue, or so it was thought before the rumor came. The rumor involves his questionable behavior in his embalming shack and is started by a young woman of the village. It comes on the night her best friend, who has just died, is being embalmed: her imagination couples with her fear of dying early, and with the coupling she becomes terrified. To ease this fright she enlists several female pals and they, of course, respond. The result is that they become united, made possible by a shattering truth they accidentally discover regarding the undertaker. Their pal...who is our heroine...fears molestation by the undertaker once she is dead. The gang's logic is that this can't possibly happen if our heroine becomes intimate with the undertaker, this intimacy making it impossible for him to be interested in the feared molestation. 'Once he sees all your pretty...well, then, he won't any longer have an interest,'' is their logic. But our heroine rejects the idea. This triggers a kind of mass hysteria as all of her pals, to give her courage, offer to seduce the undertaker themselves. It is made clear that with their emotional support our heroine can carry out her seduction, since she is now part of a group dedicated to ridding Haven of a dangerous element. This story involves the machinations, schemes, tricks, and maneuvers employed to accomplish these various seduction and , in particular, the built in psychological ramifications of such acts. Some of these women are married. All have reputations to uphold. And a couple have hidden, and highly amusing, quirks, which the village knows nothing about or even suspects. The result, at least for the reader, is a joyous kind of madness.

In the early twentieth century, a teenage Greek girl in Constantinople loses both her parents and, together with her younger sister, gets thrown into a massive population exchange between Greece and Turkey. She ends up in a refugee camp in northern Greece. With determination she creates a life in her new country, becoming a teacher in a small mountain town near Greece's northwestern borders with Albania and Yugoslavia. She meets and marries a young lawyer from a historic and tragic Macedonian family. Her story extends through a century of war and peace and is peppered with likable characters, horrific events, and a love story. Among the protagonists are two strong women, a charming and indomitable man, and a smart but sickly kid. Now and again her drive, perseverance, and common sense will save the day and reward her with happiness, which nevertheless will come and go like interludes of sunshine in otherwise endlessly stormy weather. The reader will also get candid and authentic glimpses on poorly known historical conflicts such as the Balkan Wars, the world's greatest ethnic cleansing, the occupation loan that the Nazis exacted from Greece, the Greek Civil War, the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, and the dispute over the use of the name Macedonia.

Iolanthe and Titus continue their mission to defeat the Bane in this striking sequel to The Burning Sky—perfect for fans of Cinda Williams Chima and Kristin Cashore—which Publishers Weekly called "a wonderfully satisfying magical saga" in a starred review and Kirkus Reviews said "bids fair to be the next big epic fantasy success." After spending the summer away from each other, Titus and Iolanthe (still disguised as Archer Fairfax) are eager to return to Eton College to resume their training to fight the Bane. Although no longer bound to Titus by blood oath, Iolanthe is more committed than ever to fulfilling her destiny—especially with the agents of Atlantis quickly closing in. Soon after arriving at school, though, Titus makes a shocking discovery, one that throws into question everything he believed about their mission. Faced with this revelation, Iolanthe struggles to come to terms with her new role, while Titus must choose between following his mother's prophecies—or forging a divergent path to an unknowable future.
