?Our family thoroughly enjoyed your family story! We love to read and are very grateful for books with good moral and historical lessons. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.? - This was written on a card received from a reader living in Pennsylvania. Many have said that it reads like a storybook. ?At 707 pages, ?Vera?s Journey? is extensive but reads like a storybook, rich in description and history, with photos along the way. The book also has an area map, recipe cards, and Ralph and Vera?s family trees. ?Vera?s Journey? takes a historical look at the matriarch of a Mennonite family living in the (Shenandoah} Valley (of Virginia).? A quote taken from A Life Fulfilled featured on the front page of the Saturday Magazine published each Saturday by the Daily News-Record authored by Jacquelyn Walsh, August 29, 2009. You may read the story on line at Vera?s Journey is about relationships in family, church, and community. It is also a history of bygone years, of suffering and triumph. Some people grow grouchy and irritable as they grow older. Not so with Vera. She grew old gracefully. Complaining was not her way. She learned in some of the most difficult experiences of life to trust God. Once when asked if she fears death she gave a typical, careful response, ?The unknown is before me.? Vera?s life was unusual and yet very normal. What makes Vera?s story so riveting is the combination of longevity and uniqueness mixed with pain and triumph. The final triumph came when God granted her request to take her home. Her parting was a most sacred moment as gathered family members observed her passing. It seemed she moved from one would to the next without a noticeable transition. There was a complete absence of struggle, a serene calmness. Her trust in God was profoundly evident in that defining moment.

Journey To Destiny is the love story of two men, whose relationship spanned forty four years. As life partners, they shared an expedition of discovery; travel, financial success and failure, hardship, illness, tragedy, happiness, indiscretions and infidelities, but most of all, love. Respected for who they were, rather than what they were, their challenges were faced without prejudice or malice. Although Journey To Destiny is in many aspects an insight into the gay lifestyle, more importantly, it dissects the humor, adventure, heartache, devotion and commitment sustained during five decades. With unrelenting candor, the book is an intimate portrait into the reality of bi-polar disorder, Alzheimer’s Disease, cancer, heart and lung disease; endured amidst happiness and heartbreak.

Have you ever wondered if you’ll have the strength to face and overcome all of your life’s countless hardships? Are you tired of being tired, anxious, and worried? Does fulfillment seem like a farfetched dream? If you see more of yourself than you like in these questions, don’t despair. What could be a life-changing experience awaits in Thriving through Life’s Storms. Nina Vera-Vida’s escape from war-torn Bosnia at seven, was just the beginning of a life filled with hardships. Nina endured dehumanizing deprivation and abuse—as well as the loss of her sight to a brain tumor. But what makes Nina a true survivor is that she never gave up. She created a path to rise above it all to inspire others. She developed coping mechanisms to minimize the pain and subsequent scars. What she has since realized is that there are two types of barriers to happiness. External hardships are often random, caused by things, people, or circumstances beyond our control. Internal hardships, on the other hand, are self-inflicted. As we wrap ourselves in the veil of denial we obscure the hardship triggers, making these internal hardships hard to detect. If you are ready to face down your enemies—both internal and external—as Nina has, a new life of fulfillment, freedom, and success can be yours. The ascent won’t always be effortless, but it will be worth it. We stop living when we give up, when we let life’s hardships make us feel helplessly “stuck” in the abyss of stagnation and discontent. Keep in mind Nina’s motivation for writing this book: never give up.

Now a major motion picture starring Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Hayley Atwell, and Taron Egerton In 1915 Vera Brittain abandoned her studies at Oxford to enlist as a nurse in the armed forces, serving in London, in Malta, and at the Western Front in France. By war's end, all those closest to her were dead, and she had witnessed firsthand the destruction and suffering of modern combat. Much of what we know and feel about the First World War we owe to Brittain's Testament of Youth. In this elegiac yet unsparing memoir, Brittain focused on the men and women who came of age as war broke out, exploring their politics, their hopes, and their fatal idealism. Acclaimed by the Times Literary Supplement as a book that helped "both form and define the mood of its time," this searing portrait is also a testament to every generation irrevocably changed by war.

This text covers a variety of topics in representation theory and is intended for graduate students and more advanced researchers who are interested in the field. The book begins with classical representation theory of finite groups over complex numbers and ends with results on representation theory of quivers. The text includes in particular infinite-dimensional unitary representations for abelian groups, Heisenberg groups and SL(2), and representation theory of finite-dimensional algebras. The last chapter is devoted to some applications of quivers, including Harish-Chandra modules for SL(2). Ample examples are provided and some are revisited with a different approach when new methods are introduced, leading to deeper results. Exercises are spread throughout each chapter. Prerequisites include an advanced course in linear algebra that covers Jordan normal forms and tensor products as well as basic results on groups and rings.

Every story has a beginning, a journey, and an end. Author Vera Leinvebers’s story begins in her beloved homeland of Latvia, just prior to the outbreak of World War II. Her early childhood is filled with joy and music, but this idyllic, carefree existence is irrevocably silenced by the advancing drumbeats of war. The journey that follows proves so intense and harrowing that in order to fi nd the emotional separation necessary to face her traumatic childhood memories, Leinvebers fi lters her experiences through the eyes of a young Latvian girl called Lara. No Time to Cry tells the story of Lara’s harrowing ordeal in war-ravaged Europe. It is a story about brutality, hatred, and unimaginable loss, but it is also a lasting testament to one little girl’s indomitable will to survive. When she loses nearly everything she holds dear, Lara desperately clings to the all that remains—the music indelibly etched in her memory and a small, smooth stone that she retrieved from the charred remains of her former home. That small stone became her symbol of strength. If it could survive the inferno and devastation, so could she. Join Lara as a traveller on the path of her war-ravaged childhood, a path that clearly proves that no matter how much one might suffer, when the goal is to survive there is simply no time to cry.

From one of the undisputed masters of world literature, a haunting novel of sublime ambition and power about a man whose fragmentary memories of a lost childhood lead him on a quest across Europe in search of his heritage. Jacques Austerlitz is a survivor – rescued as a child from the Nazi threat. In the summer of 1939 he arrives in Wales to live with a Methodist minister and his wife. As he grows up, they tell him nothing of his origins, and he reaches adulthood with no understanding of where he came from. Late in life, a sudden memory brings him the first glimpse of his origins, launching him on a journey into a family history that has been buried. The story of Jacques Austerlitz unfolds over the course of a 30-year conversation that takes place in train stations and travellers’ stops across England and Europe. In Jacques Austerlitz, Sebald embodies the universal human search for identity, the struggle to impose coherence on memory, a struggle complicated by the mind’s defences against trauma. Along the way, this novel of many riches dwells magically on a variety of subjects – railway architecture, military fortifications, insects, plants and animals, the constellations, works of art, a small circus and the three cities that loom over the book, London, Paris and Prague – in the service of its astounding vision. From the Hardcover edition.

This classic memoir of the First World War is now a major motion picture starring Alicia Vikander and Kit Harington. Includes an afterword by Kate Mosse OBE. In 1914 Vera Brittain was 20, and as war was declared she was preparing to study at Oxford. Four years later her life - and the life of her whole generation - had changed in a way that would have been unimaginable in the tranquil pre-war era. TESTAMENT OF YOUTH, one of the most famous autobiographies of the First World War, is Brittain's account of how she survived those agonising years; how she lost the man she loved; how she nursed the wounded and how she emerged into an altered world. A passionate record of a lost generation, it made Vera Brittain one of the best-loved writers of her time, and has lost none of its power to shock, move and enthral readers since its first publication in 1933.
