Ken Follett's extraordinary historical epic, the Century Trilogy, reaches its sweeping, passionate conclusion. In Fall of Giants and Winter of the World, Ken Follett followed the fortunes of five international families—American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh—as they made their way through the twentieth century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the 1960s through the 1980s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements, and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution—and rock and roll. East German teacher Rebecca Hoffmann discovers she’s been spied on by the Stasi for years and commits an impulsive act that will affect her family for the rest of their lives. . . . George Jakes, the child of a mixed-race couple, bypasses a corporate law career to join Robert F. Kennedy's Justice Department and finds himself in the middle of not only the seminal events of the civil rights battle but a much more personal battle of his own. . . . Cameron Dewar, the grandson of a senator, jumps at the chance to do some official and unofficial espionage for a cause he believes in, only to discover that the world is a much more dangerous place than he'd imagined. . . . Dimka Dvorkin, a young aide to Nikita Khrushchev, becomes an agent both for good and for ill as the United States and the Soviet Union race to the brink of nuclear war, while his twin sister, Tanya, carves out a role that will take her from Moscow to Cuba to Prague to Warsaw—and into history.

This book includes five stories written especially with children in mind, although I hope The Tales of Tuffy stories will be enjoyed by readers of all ages. These stories introduce us to a Lakota Indian tribe, happy, healthy and prosperous. The star of these stories is Thunder Rider, a five-year-old boy, who was nicknamed Tuffy by his grandfather. In these stories, I wanted to show Tuffy as a typical little boy who liked to learn and explore everything. From the moment I conceived the idea of writing these stories, I wanted the main character to learn many lessons resulting from the choices he makes and the actions he takes. These tales reflect fictitious adventures that a Native American child may have experienced a very long time ago. The lessons learned still ring true today within all ethnic groups, and perhaps for all times. The first story, 'How Tuffy Got his Name and Pet,' describes Tuffy's recounting to his best friend of how he was given his name at birth. Since Indian storytelling is the way by which generations kept their history, Tuffy has inherited the formal voice of the storytellers he has heard since birth. His mother, pregnant with the boy, was gathering berries and wandered too far away from the village to return before a great storm hit. She sheltered under a ledge and gave birth to him. His father named him Thunder Rider for being so brave and strong during the thunderstorm. The story also describes how Tuffy got his pet wolf. He journeys alone to the woods and the great mountain where he was born and encounters a bear. A wolf saves him from the bear and he then keeps the wolf for a pet. The second story, 'Tuffy and the Eagle,' describes how Tuffy accidentally frees an eagle that was brought to the village by his best friend and his best friend's father. They found the injured eagle on their way back to the village after going hunting. They wanted to mend the eagle's wing in hopes that it would be able to fly again. Tuffy goes to the eagle's cage and opens it in an effort to comfort the eagle. The eagle flaps its wings at Tuffy very hard and flies out of the cage. Tuffy decides not to admit to anyone about the eagle's disappearance. He suffers from worriment and guilt for many hours before finally admitting the truth to his friend. He learns a very important lesson from his mistake. A lesson he will never forget. The third story, 'Tuffy and the Bow and Arrow,' describes a very special place where Tuffy and his father travel to, in order to experience their very first overnight hunting trip together. He learns many things on this trip and is thrilled to learn that one day soon, he will receive his own bow and arrows. It also describes the events that lead him into removing his father's bow and arrow from the tepee without permission, and how the bow ends up broken. Tuffy shows his wisdom in choosing to confess to his father before too long about the broken bow. The fourth story, 'Tuffy and the Buffalo Hunt,' describes how Tuffy and his cousin sneak away from their grandparent's tepee to travel to the traditional semi-annual event, the Buffalo Hunt. Without permission, they ride their ponies to the Hunt and witness first hand how a Hunt is truly carried out. The story also describes how Tuffy's arm ends up broken and the many lessons he learns from his actions. The fifth story, 'Tuffy Turns Six,' describes how and why Tuffy gets into a fight with an older brave protecting his best friend's sister on his birthday. The story also describes this important experience as a defining moment in his young life, as it pertains to his friend's sister. In spite of the fact that Tuffy gets into a fight on his birthday, his spirit and heart are ultimately consoled by the many touching birthday gifts he receives later that evening. He is left feeling very grateful for the many blessings he knows he has within his life circle.

A disillusioned business executive whose life has hit a dead-end, Nick Seagrave has lost loved ones to tragedy and his family to neglect. Now, at a point of great crisis, he unbelievably and inexplicably finds himself transported to what appears to be another world. Suddenly he’s confronted with profoundly clear views of his own past and personality. At the same time, he’s enabled to see, hear, taste, and smell the realities of both heaven and hell–realities that force him to face dangers and trials far greater than any he’s known before. Pitted against flying beasts, a monstrous web that threatens to hold him captive, an evil, brooding intelligence, and undeniable evidence of a spiritual world, Nick must finally consider the God he claims not to believe in. Walking between two worlds, Nick Seagrave prepares to make decisions that will change his life forever, as he stands on the Edge of Eternity.

These were the last weeks and days before the end of the world, before total destruction overwhelmed Earth and every living thing on the surface of the planet. No one knew exactly how long they had before the sun turned nova and destroyed not only Earth but all of the other planets in the Solar System. For mankind, the only excape lay in flight to the stars, to Alpha Centauri, more than four light years distant. The hyperdrive, capable of carrying them there at close to the speed of light had been developed, but as yet had not been perfected. In a world without a future, the starships were the only salvation of mankind and they could save only a minute fraction of the population of Earth. Panic is there, but temporarily forgotten by most, as the plans for a mass exodus are speeded up, as the long hours of mounting tension draw to a close and Judgement Day, when the world shall be destroyed by fire, is mo longer a hazy time in the far future, but something very close and very terrible. For those who remained behind, there could be no escape; death would come suddenly, eight minutes after the nova explosion. For those who fled the Solar System in the starships, untried and working on principles only partially understood, there was only the long, terrible journey through the endless night, not knowing what lay at the end of it.

A visceral and momentous narrative of the first twenty-four hours of D-Day on Omaha Beach: the most dramatic Allied landing of World War II. Before World War II, Normandy’s Plage d’Or coast was best known for its sleepy villages and holiday destinations. Early in 1944, German commander Field Marshal Erwin Rommel took one look at the gentle, sloping sands and announced "They will come here!” He was referring to "Omaha Beach”—the prime American D-Day landing site. The beach was subsequently transformed into three miles of lethal, bunker-protected arcs of fire, with seaside chalets converted into concrete strongpoints, fringed by layers of barbed wire and mines. The Germans called it “the Devil's Garden." When Company A of the US 116th Regiment landed on Omaha Beach in D-Day’s first wave on 6th June 1944, it lost 96% of its effective strength. Sixteen teams of US engineers arriving in the second wave were unable to blow the beach obstacles, as first wave survivors were still sheltering behind them. This was the beginning of the historic day that Landing on the Edge of Eternity narrates hour by hour—rom midnight to midnight—tracking German and American soldiers fighting across the beachhead. Mustered on their troop transport decks at 2am, the American infantry departed in landing craft at 5am. Skimming across high waves, deafened by immense broadsides from supporting battleships and weak from seasickness, they caught sight of land at 6.15. Eleven minutes later, the assault was floundering under intense German fire. Two and a half hours in, General Bradley, commanding the landings aboard USS Augusta, had to decide if to proceed or evacuate. On June 6th there were well over 2,400 casualties on Omaha Beach – easily D-Day’s highest death toll. The Wehrmacht thought they had bludgeoned the Americans into bloody submission, yet by mid-afternoon, the American troops were ashore. Why were the casualties so grim, and how could the Germans have failed? Juxtaposing the American experience—pinned down, swamped by a rising tide, facing young Wehrmacht soldiers fighting desperately for their lives, Kershaw draws on eyewitness accounts, memories, letters, and post-combat reports to expose the true horrors of Omaha Beach. These are stories of humanity, resilience, and dark humor; of comradeship and a gritty patriotism holding beleaguered men together. Landing on the Edge of Eternity is a dramatic historical ride through an amphibious landing that looked as though it might never succeed.

SOMETHING STRANGE WAS IN THE MISTS OF FERNHAVEN A mantle of mystery had closed in on Elizabeth Blackstone. An inexplicable—unnatural—sensation of being watched had stricken her ever since the accident that claimed her young son and nearly her, as well. Trapped in the depths of despair, she'd been experiencing gaps in her memory, hearing and seeing things that weren't there…feeling even more frightening things. Her once-loving husband, Paul—a handsome, successful businessman—had become a grief-stricken stranger, who'd seemingly retreated from their marriage. But it was an impromptu excursion to the luxury hotel in Fernhaven that proved the true test of their bond…. Paul was desperate to save his wife from the edge of devastation or worse. Would his love be strong enough to overcome a sinister and inconceivable interloper?

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps. Proverbs 16:9 The Lord is the story of my life. It took a time to discover that He is in charge of my life. Every step of the way, the Lord prepared me for the work He wanted me to do, the girl He wanted me to marry, and even the children with which He blessed us. Every chapter of my life has been the best times. As I look back, even the difficult times were the best times because the Lord was with us. Its my prayer that this story of my life with Charlene, my wife, will encourage you never to give up even in the most desperate situations being confident that the Lord will lead you each step at a time.
