The second novel by Donna Tartt, bestselling author of The Goldfinch (winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize), The Little Friend is a grandly ambitious and utterly riveting novel of childhood, innocence and evil. The setting is Alexandria, Mississippi, where one Mother’s Day a little boy named Robin Cleve Dufresnes was found hanging from a tree in his parents’ yard. Twelve years later Robin’s murder is still unsolved and his family remains devastated. So it is that Robin’s sister Harriet—unnervingly bright, insufferably determined, and unduly influenced by the fiction of Kipling and Robert Louis Stevenson--sets out to unmask his killer. Aided only by her worshipful friend Hely, Harriet crosses her town’s rigid lines of race and caste and burrows deep into her family’s history of loss. Filled with hairpin turns of plot and “a bustling, ridiculous humanity worthy of Dickens” (The New York Times Book Review), The Little Friend is a work of myriad enchantments by a writer of prodigious talent. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Listening to an infant heartbeat. Feeling a life growing within a life. Seeing those small feet take those first steps. Hearing the cry of a child with a scraped knee. Having a little companion who walks, talks, and looks just like you. These are the myriad experiences intrinsic in the sacred tradition of family. This is what having a child means-but more than that, it means fulfilling the purpose God created when He created His own family: the human race. Just as we depend on God for our salvation and protection, so do children depend on their parents to provide them with guidance and moral support. Are you ready to accept the responsibility of another life and to follow in God's footsteps? In My Little Friend, author Dallal Alexander chronicles the miracle of creating a family in God's image and showing her children-her little buddies- the true miracle of communion with the Lord. Through the everyday struggles of life, the Holy Spirit is a helper, showing the true way to accomplish God's purpose to the family that embraces and recognizes the path they are meant to take. Dallal's account of family and faithfulness asserts God's decision to create humans to be his family and incites our duty as humans to create more sons and daughters for the Lord. Through dedication and faith, a family can grow together to overcome the trials and corruption of the world to live as God's 'little friends,' with the help of the Holy Spirit and a heart truly open to his plans. Dallal Alexander is a native of Egypt who has lived in America for the majority of her life. She now resides in Florida with her husband and three children.

From her early years, Thérèse of Lisieux desired to be a saint, so the primary focus of her life was to walk the path of love—what she called "the science of love." But she often asked herself if her love was pure and authentic. With sensitivity and insight, author Joseph Schmidt shows us how Thérèse discovered certain qualities of the heart that told her that she was indeed walking the path of authentic love. These qualities—inner freedom, creativity, compassion, willingness, self-surrender or abandonment, and gratefulness—"opened her heart to a new depth of God's life in and through her." Eventually, they played a very practical role in Thérèse's ordinary day-to-day life relationships—and they can in our own as well. As he did in his earlier book on Thérèse, Everything Is Grace, Joseph Schmidt breaks new ground in his latest book and offers tremendous food for thought and reflection on the spirituality of this great saint. • Offers a concrete way to follow Thérèse's path to God. • A "must read" for those interested in the spirituality of Thérèse.

It is said that everyone has a story to tell, a voice that deserves to be heard. There are many thousands of children with special needs who have long been ignored, rejected and excluded from our schools, our communities, and, sadly, from our Bible classes. We believe that these children are loved deeply and completely by our Lord and that they too are called to come unto Him. This book speaks to the heart and to the head. Teachers and pastors will find inspiration and information, reminding them that God calls us to include all children, no matter the challenge. In addition, the book includes wonderfully practical elements with many ideas that can be easily integrated into any classroom. By combining philosophy and strategies, this book will equip the typical church volunteer teacher to meet the needs of all the children in her classroom.
