An orphan, abandoned and alone. A family, comfortable and secure. A shaky step of faith. An unprecedented complication. A heartbreaking separation. An unyielding quest.A love story that is every Christian's story. Bringing Lucy Home shares the compelling drama of one family's relentless pursuit to bring hope into the life of an orphaned baby girl. In itself, this account would merely duplicate the narratives of other adoptive families. However, Jennifer Phillips' journey unexpectedly detoured into heartache, causing indefinite separation from her husband and three biological children. Her struggle with bureaucratic injustice will make you want to call a politician - and many did just that. Yet, in the end, it was not political or legal pressure that reunited this family. God's hand was at work, using every disappointment to teach a young mother about His unrelenting love. Join the thousands who have walked alongside Jennifer and Lucy as they tried to reunite with their family. Jennifer's humor and vulnerability will captivate your heart and transform her story into your story as your eyes are opened to deep gospel truths that are only unearthed in the soil of suffering. You were lost. You were pursued. You are worth whatever it costs to bring you home, for good.

This book describes how Robin and Joyce Hill gave up their wealthy expatriate life in China to take sick and abandoned orphans into their home. They have rescued about 1,000 children to date. In 1998 the Hills planned to leave. Instead they felt God calling them to stay in China and set up a foster home for unwanted babies. The couple - with their two youngest children - moved into a tiny apartment miles outside Beijing, setting up the first cot in the dining room. In October 2000 Hope Foster Home received its first children. Many needed medical assistance and would be unlikely to survive under the existing state system. Some were abandoned on the streets or left under bridges. As news spread, so help arrived - including support from singer/songwriter Steven Curtis Chapman. Now directors of Child Welfare Institutes across China have asked Joyce and Rob to step in. This is a riveting example of how one couple have changed hundreds of lives.

But then Gabe becomes a photojournalist assigned to the Middle East and Lucy pursues a career in New York. What follows is a thirteen-year journey of dreams, desires, jealousies, betrayals, and, ultimately, of love. Was it fate that brought them together? Is it choice that has kept them away?

At twelve, Lucy Marie McGowan already knows she’ll be a psychologist when she grows up. And her quirky and conflicted family provides plenty of opportunity for her to practice her calling. Now Lucy, her “profoundly gifted” twin brother, Milo, her commitment-phobic mother, and her New Age grandmother are leaving Chicago for Timber Falls, Wisconsin, to care for her dying grandfather—a complex and difficult man whose failure as a husband and father still painfully echoes down through the years. Lucy believes her time in the rural town where the McGowan story began will provide a key piece to the puzzle of her family’s broken past, and perhaps even reveal the truth about her own missing father. But what she discovers is so much more—a lesson about the paradoxes of love and the grace of forgiveness that the adults around her will need help in remembering if their family is ever to find peace and embrace the future. By turns heart-wrenching and heart-mending, Thank You for All Things is a powerful and poignant novel by a brilliant storyteller who illustrates that when it comes to matters of family and love, often it is the innocent who force others to confront their darkest secrets. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The severely and persistently mentally ill (SPMI) have been ignored, ridiculed, stigmatized, locked away in prisons, forgotten in hospitals, or left to wander the streets of our small and large cities. LUCY is a mother's story of her daughter's long struggle with a relentless brain disease-schizophrenia-that has no cure and gives no quarter. It's past time to recognize that Lucy and thousands like her need ASYLUM-places of care, protection, and refuge-in a world that's passed them by. "Lucy, the Anguish of Schizophrenia was revised in 2005. That book was used for four semesters in a mental health nursing lab course at the College of Nursing at Florida State University in Tallahassee. It is currently being used for the third year as part of the curriculum in psychiatric nursing at Chattanooga State Technical Community College in Chattanooga, TN and as recommended reading for graduate family therapy courses at the University of Maryland School of Nursing in Baltimore, MD."

“Dear Readers and Booksellers: If you have not yet experienced the great pleasure of a story by William Trevor, I urge you to read this new novel, and to set it in pride of place in your stores. Because the haunting story of Lucy Gault will not fail to capture you with its mystery, its compassion, and the beauty of its writing.” -- Louise Dennys, Executive Publisher, Knopf Canada William Trevor is beloved around the world as one of the finest writers today -- and with just cause: his new novel is a masterpiece of love and loss, and lives suspended in time. Lucy Gault is nine when her parents are faced with the agonizing decision to flee Ireland to be safe from the violence that privilege and Lucy’s English mother have brought upon them -- or to stay in their home and risk losing it to the threat of arson. Lucy cannot bear the thought of leaving Lahardane’s beautiful pastureland, the seashore below pale clay cliffs, and the nameless dog that has become her companion. So she runs away into the nearby woods to convince her parents to stay. Instead, her actions begin the unravelling of her family when they find two bits of her clothing and conclude she has thrown herself into the sea. Now desperate to be rid of the place where their much-loved daughter has died, Captain and Heloise Gault set off to wander restlessly across Europe. In the Lahardane woods, two weeks after the Gaults have gone, the groundskeeper finds the child lying lame and half-dead. He and his wife become Lucy’s life companions as she keeps a 30-year vigil of love and guilt waiting for her parents’ return.

Last summer, Lucy’s and Ben’s lives changed in an instant. One moment, they were shyly flirting on a lake raft, finally about to admit their feelings to each other after years of yearning. In the next, Trixie—Lucy’s best friend and Ben’s sister—was gone, her heart giving out during a routine swim. And just like that, the idyllic world they knew turned upside down, and the would-be couple drifted apart, swallowed up by their grief. Now it’s a year later in their small lake town, and as the anniversary of Trixie’s death looms, Lucy and Ben’s undeniable connection pulls them back together. They can’t change what happened the day they lost Trixie, but the summer might finally bring them closer to healing—and to each other.

The summer of 1939 turned out to be the last summer of author Lucy Lipiner's childhood. On September 1, when she was six years old, her parents roused her and her older sister from their beds and, with other relatives in tow, left their town of Sucha, home to 780 Jewish people. It was a decision carefully planned and carried out by the author's father which resulted in saving the lives of fifteen people. But the journey of survival was not an easy one, and in Long Journey Home A Young Girl's Memoir of Surviving the Holocaust, from the perspective of that little girl, Lipiner narrates her family's story. She tells of an odyssey of escape and rescue full of hardships and tribulation. From her sheltered life in a picturesque small town at the foothills of the Tatra Mountains to her time as a barefoot and hungry little girl in Siberia and Tajikistan in central Asia, and finally her arrival in America, this memoir shares the emotional details and the physical struggles of a ten-year flight to freedom. A story of resilience, Long Journey Home A Young Girl's Memoir of Surviving the Holocaust provides a detailed, historical account of a little-known and rarely discussed group of Holocaust survivors.
