A true friendship never dies. Leisel and Evelyn lost everything. Husbands. Families. Friends. Lives that made sense. All they had left was each other, and a friendship that could withstand anything... Even an apocalypse. Until one fateful night, the marginal safety they'd come to rely on comes to a vicious and brutal end. With the help of Alex & Jami, both unlikely allies, Leisel and Evelyn are able to escape their shattered sanctuary only to find themselves face-to-face with a much altered, much crueler life where they have to find the way-and the will-to stay alive in a world they no longer recognize. Traveling across a broken and infection-ridden country; the road-weary group are pitted against endless violence, improbable circumstances, and the ultimate loss. Everything comes at a price-especially safety, the cost of which could very well strip them of the one thing they've tried so hard to cling to: their humanity. Yet along with all the trials they're forced to endure, there's also hope in the form of love. Having loved Leisel from afar, Alex attempts to put the pieces of her fractured heart back together. But in such a savage world, is there room for love? In a place of nightmares-made-reality, where the living should be feared far more than the dead, an unbreakable friendship and a love amongst all odds can mean the difference between life and death. There are friends... And then there are Leisel and Evelyn.

This is a book about friendship - about the Buddhist ideals of spiritual friendship and the author's personal experience. By turns moving, funny and inspirational, Maitreyabandhu's account is as compelling as a good novel. Woven into the tapestry of the many different aspects of friendship, such as openness, communication, fidelity and altruism, is the colourful thread of Maitreyabandhu's own experiences - from childhood to adolescence, through to his quest for life's meaning and wholehearted engagement with Buddhism.

The act of adopting children, and the processes and politics around it, have changed drastically in recent decades, mostly for the better. Still, many prospective adoptive parents remain bewildered or apprehensive, and those who have adopted find themselves struggling in ways they hadn't anticipated. Thicker Than Blood is a comprehensive yet down-to-earth look at adoptive parenting in the twenty-first century. Author Marion Crook's family includes two adopted sons; in her experience, adoptive parents need to acquire skills, knowledge, and a good sense of humor in order to deal with the emotional upheavals of raising adopted children. The book looks at all facets of adoption, including its dark history over the past one hundred years when it was seen as a lower-class option for desperate parents, or when children were taken from single mothers against their will. Today, adoption is much more open-minded?LGBT adoptive parents and adoptive single parents are now commonplace?yet challenges linger, from adoptive children suffering from PTSD to those dealing with issues of anger and abandonment. Crook gently takes adoptive parents through the process of adoption from childhood to adulthood, helping to demystify the experience with compassion and reassurance. Meticulously researched but refreshingly free of academic jargon, Thicker Than Blood will enlighten and empower adoptive parents and those who work with adopted children alike. Marion Crook is the author of twenty-one previous books which include novels and nonfiction for both adults and young people, on such subjects as women's health, teen suicide, and body image.

In Water Thicker Than Blood, Terrell tells a story of love, family, sadness, and hurt, but mainly of the challenges we face when trying to forgive ourselves and others. Johnny Mae can never receive the love from the one person she craves, and then there's Pearl, whose midnight complexion and being overweight are a stark contrast to her honey-brown skinned and petite sister with the "good hair." Terrell's characters are believable; their flaws, missteps, and insecurities connect with us on an intimate level. We find ourselves rooting for Johnny Mae to fulfill her lifelong dream to become a clothes designer and for Pearl to gain acceptance for who she is, and we ultimately rejoice in the understanding that opportunity and unconditional love may never come by blood--but by water.

This book considers how homes, households, and domestic life are related to the Church. Early theologies glorified the monastic lifestyle as a way to transcend earthly attachments in favor of supernatural goods. Contemporary thinkers have seen that functioning marriages and families themselves can lead us toward a more righteous society. Jana Bennett insists that both marriage and singleness must be placed in the context of the Christian story of redemption for the questions and problems at stake to be fully understood. She finds that Augustine of Hippo, maligned by modern theologians, is the source of very fruitful reflection on these topics. Most scholars today would agree that Augustine's works have exerted great influence on Western views of marriage, family, and sex. But many would argue that this influence has been detrimental to a healthy understanding of these topics. However, using Augustine's writing, Bennett shows that marriage and singleness cannot be considered separately, that gender issues are important to considering these states correctly and, most important, that the marriage between Christ and the Church is the first consideration in understanding and living these states of life. The water of baptism, Christians' first birth and initiation into the life of Christ, is the primary standard for relationships, rather than familial ties.

"Water is thicker than blood", is a story solemnly written by me. It is a story that was inspired by true events with a little bit of fiction there and there. The story sees a young man on his journey to finding happiness, peace and success through the hands of a person who made him to realize that sometimes you can be worth more to a stranger than your own family. We are often told that "Blood is thicker than water" but in this case, water overpowers blood that left an innocent heart stained forever. Take this journey once more with me as I unravel different emotions that will leave you crying, happy, shocked and begging for more. A story that is going to open your eyes through a lot of things such as forgiving even when your heart is still bleeding, a story of second chances, hope, and faith. Water is thicker than water is 70% inspired by true events. -- page 4 of cover.

There are millions of people who have experienced and are experiencing unwarranted psychological and physical abuse from members of their own family /relatives. However, some like me were fortunate to encounter strangers who made me aware of the contrast of human behavior, and confirmed my belief that all mankind does not possess sinister thoughts that go into action as highlighted in this book. Here’s hoping that the many people who have experienced or are experiencing implied or explicit abuse that they find some resolve, as no man or woman should endure a lifetime of psychological torture. While it is understood that humans are not perfect, we must be cognizant that life is short and we should all be able to live our lives in peace, with happiness and love.
