There have been several autobiographies written by the children of illustrious film actresses--Christina and Joan Crawford, Maria Riva and Marlene Dietrich, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. Each book lays bare the stark reality of being raised in Hollywood, where the glamour and drama of being raised by world-renowned parents is tempered by the pressure to succeed in life and love in the shadow of Hollywood perfection. Now, add to that list the story of Francesca Knittel Bowyer, daughter of Luise Rainer--the first woman to win two Academy Awards before the age of 30. Knittel Bowyer describes her desperate need to become independent from a mother who was almost never pleased, especially when she felt upstaged, and chronicles her journey to find her life's purpose and to define herself as an individual. Francesca Knittel Bowyer's is a life woven with adventure. She went from theater actress to editor at Harpers Magazine; recognizably as the first Devil Wears Prada girl, then from art dealer to executive at a highly prestigious advertising agency. Meanwhile, she worked tirelessly as a devoted and sometimes single mother raising two daughters and while escaping abusive relationships and marriages.In this poignant, true story of a daughter, wife and mother who escapes from the trappings of her golden upbringing in the villas of Europe and the mansions of Beverly Hills, Knittel Bowyer reveals how her imperious mother and gentle-hearted father affected her relationships, choices and happiness. All these life experiences resulted in her catapulting herself into a new and positive life path of faith, peace and self-acceptance.

On the Wings of a Dove is a compilation of poems designed to stimulate an appreciation for the simple blessings we oft times take for granted because of the havoc and chaos that surrounds us in our daily lives here on this earth. The dove is a symbol of the Holy Spirit and represents simplicity, gentleness, divine guidance, marital affection, and the deepest kind of peace. Its wings exemplify the Love of God and Gods forgiveness. The doves unadorned and striking white image provides us with an ever-present reminder that there is always hope when there is faith in our Heavenly Father. The poetry within On the Wings of a Dove are intended to provide inspiration and support as an arsenal against troubling times and difficult situations, to produce a guiding light on darkened day, and to give one the solace and belief that our Heavenly Father loves each of us, watches over us, and is preparing our place within His Kingdom.

The Wings of the Sphinx is the eleventh book in the wickedly funny Inspector Montalbano series by Italian author, Andrea Camilleri. Things are not going well for Inspector Montalbano. His long-distance relationship with Livia is on the rocks, he feels himself getting even older and he's growing tired of the violence in his job. Then the dead body of a young woman is found in an illegal dump, with half her face missing. Her identity at first unknown; a tattoo of a sphinx moth on her left shoulder links her with three other girls bearing the same mark, all recent Russian immigrants to Italy. Victims of an underworld sex trade, these girls have been rescued from the Mafia night-club circuit by a Catholic charity organization. The problem is, the other girls can't help Montalbano with his enquiries. They are all missing. As his investigations progresses, it seems that not everyone wants Montalbano to discover what really lies behind the organization's charitable façade. And not only does Montalbano have a case to solve, he has a demanding stomach to feed, and he must save his foundering relationship with Livia . . . The Wings of the Sphinx is followed by the twelfth gripping mystery, The Track of Sand.

They found the flying officer hanging in his hut — another man who couldn’t take the relentless pressure of flying operations, it seemed, although his fellow officers hadn’t liked him much anyway. Besides, what was one more death among the thousands dying on the Western Front???Except that this man’s family had connections to Field Marshal Kitchener and no one wanted him distracted on the eve of the big push on the Somme. ??So Investigator Miller is sent to the squadron to tie up the loose ends, to tidy the incident away. For some reason they think he is well-equipped for that sort of thing.??Only it is all Miller can do to keep himself alive, flying daily over the enemy lines. And then he finds the suicide isn’t quite as straightforward as it is supposed to be. Particularly when a second man turns up dead, purportedly shot with his own pistol...??Set against the backdrop of the Great War and infused with a sense of intrigue and high drama, this is a novel of unsettling force. With a keen eye for detail, Oldman evokes the brutality of mud splattered battlefields and aerial combat, bringing the reader right up close to the action. As events spiral and the war continues to impact upon the investigation, peril and suspense combine to create a real sense of unease and urgency, leading towards an unexpected and fascinating conclusion.??As seen on www.historicalnovels.info

Giant angels with metal wings and visible song. A blind demon restored from the pit of darkness. And a girl who has never felt more broken. Brielle sees the world as it really is: a place where the Celestial exists side by side with human reality. But in the aftermath of a supernatural showdown, her life begins to crumble. Her boyfriend, Jake, is keeping something from her—something important. Her overprotective father has started drinking again. And he’s dating a much younger woman who makes Brielle’s skin crawl. Haunting nightmares invade Brielle’s sleep, and flashes of Celestial vision keep her off kilter. What she doesn’t know is that she’s been targeted. The Prince of Darkness himself has heard of the boy with healing in his hands and of the girl who sees through the Terrestrial Veil. Brielle has no choice. She knows evil forces are converging and will soon rain their terror down on the town of Stratus. She must master the weapons she’s been given. She must fight. But can she fly with broken wings?
