Now, on the wild and beautiful coast of County Clare, their battle reaches its dramatic climax. Doyle Mac Cleirich - soldier and reluctant immortal - has always vowed never to return home.

As the six guardians face their final challenge, Riley and Doyle are prepared to risk their lives in battle. But without love to sustain them, the quest is doomed to failure...

Waterford Crystal is the first ever fully illustrated history of Ireland's most iconic cut-glass manufacturer, its name synonymous with high-end glassmaking throughout the world. Former Waterford glass cutter and local historian John Hearne explores how the art of glassmaking first arrived in Waterford at the turn of the sixteenth century. Hearne reveals how Waterford Crystal developed as a brand under the guidance of skilled artisans and shrewd business leaders with an eye for ingenuity. Waterford developed a global reputation for quality glass and crystalware that was rocked and buoyed by events that span centuries, including the American Revolutionary war, the World Fair in London, World War Two and the attacks of 9/11. A testament to innovations in design and brilliant marketing strategy, Waterford Crystal also examines the brand's failures - dubious accountancy practices that led to a long and bitter strike in 1990; the avarice and self-aggrandisement that ultimately led to the company's demise in 2009. Preserving the memory and legacy of Waterford Crystal for future generations of glassmaking, Hearne pays tribute to some of the finest artisans Ireland has ever produced, whose passionate devotion prefigured inspired works of art - turning basic ingredients, sand and ash, into objects of aesthetic beauty.

Somewhere in her body she retained every story ever told. She knew every life that had been lived and every life yet to be born. There exists a prophesy as old as history itself: in times of darkness a pair of twins will be born, a gift to humankind that will save us from ourselves. Whether in ancient Ethiopia, where a warrior queen rises; aboard buccaneer Black Caesar’s pirate ship sailing for Jamaica at the time of the Spanish Inquisition; or in a banker’s opulent mansion in Austria on the eve of World War ii. , the twins, and their aides and enemies, must face a common destiny. The Season of Glass is a modern Scheherazade’s tale about these siblings’ travels at pivotal moments: to a marbled city in sixteenth-century India, through dangerous Johannesburg streets in the seventies, and even to the distant future. A shimmering novel, it is a kaleidoscope that works with light and shows us hope.

No one ever talks about the beauty in the pain the stillness that can only come from accepting its edge how the face of God becomes clearer in every. agonizing. breath. Suffering is the most damnable place on earth. But when I lay here in its wake and let it wash over and through me I become a sacred, beautiful, holy tragedy that is so wholly here and so wholly in the realm of angels that nothing on this side of heaven can touch me. Julie was first inspired to write poetry in the midst of heartache. As her writings quickly evolved into intense, intimate conversations with God, she found herself deepening in her walk with Him and delving into deep places within herself, shaping her faith and worldview. In this volume of poems, Julie interweaves her hearts expression with prayer and Scrip-ture, reflecting on experiences such as the beauty found in pain, the baptism of a sweet friendship in Franklin, Tennessee, the loss of love and its subsequent healing, the Lord’s blinding love and crushing mercy, and a premonition delivered by a little old lady in church. Sea of Glass shares poems that explore a variety of inspirational topics while inviting us all to reflect on our relationships with God, our loved ones, and the world around us.

"Shards of Glass looks at the processes through which gender is constituted from a poststructuralist perspective: at the usual ways knowledge is constructed in classrooms, the nature of femininities and masculinities, and the children's experience of sexuality. The author challenges us to work with children to allow them as speaking subjects to invent, invert and break old structures and speak/write into existence other ways of being. The new edition involves a refining and developing of the theoretical framework and analysis."--Cover.

For Eileen O'Keeffe McVicker, born in 1927 to an Irish immigrant sheep rancher and a school teacher, growing up on a homestead in the West made for "a hard, happy life with layers of riches." McVicker's memoir of a childhood spent on the southern slope of Steens Mountain offers a real-life, personal account of eastern Oregon history.An "outdoor child" all her life, McVicker tells stories that revolve around life on the ranch-tending sheep, picking wildflowers, doing chores-and describes everyday adventures: a rabid coyote threatens the family; a wild mustang stallion tries to kill her father; a Merino buck sheep leaps through the schoolhouse window. Images of Steens country-wild sagebrush and juniper country, with rugged vistas in every direction-are woven throughout her recollections, which share the profound sense of place found in the best Western memoirs. While vividly describing ranch life, Child of Steens Mountain also explores universal issues of parenting, making a living, and growing up. The homesteading life built a child's character and confidence, and as she reaches adulthood, McVicker, raised to be independent and responsible, ultimately defies her parents to follow her own path.McVicker's neighbor and friend, Barbara J. Scot, edited and organized the narration while preserving the author's distinctive voice. In an afterword, Scot reflects on McVicker's experiences and describes the collaborative process-including a visit to the old homestead site-that led to this book. Historian Richard Etulain, whose own childhood was spent on a sheep ranch in the West, provides an overview of sheep ranching and homesteading in Steens country in his foreword.Whether intrigued by Oregon history, the high desert country, or memoirs of homesteading life, readers will be unable to resist these appealing stories of growing up amid the natural beauty of Steens country.
