41. E.M. Bounds Classic Collection on Prayer (Large Print 16pt) - Em Bounds

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

When I first read E. M. Bounds' eight books on prayer, I was certain there was no need for anyone else to ever write another book on prayer, that Bounds had said it all, and said it much better than anyone else could possibly say it. I felt the same way when I reread the eight books about three years later, and the several times I read them after that. I especially liked his book on The Possibilities of Prayer. It opened my mind and heart to how unlimited prayer is. A wonderful book - just wonderful! And all eight of his books on prayer are in this one volume - what a treasure!'' (Harold J. Chadwick) This edition is in two volumes. The first volume ISBN is 9781459633292.

"This tale brings a turbulent time to life with nuance and sensitivity."

JOCELYN GREEN, award-winning author of the Heroines Behind the Lines Civil War series

“An unnatural thunder rumbled through the air, carrying with it not thoughts of rain but of smoke and trepidation...”

After being forced to use a pistol against invaders, Evelyn Mapleton is no longer the timid girl her extended family expects. The more her aunt and cousin resent her new independence, the more Evelyn is determined she'll make her missing father proud by taking up his cause and aiding Confederate soldiers--even if she has to outmaneuver the Yankees guarding her home to do it.

Samuel Flynn's life is consumed with two priorities: learning to become a proper guardian for the young orphans he's adopted and obtaining his physicians license. When his final testing sends him to a Federal Army field hospital, the last thing he expects is to be entranced by a mysterious woman. But when Evelyn's misguided exploits put her life in danger, will he risk everything he's worked for to save a woman he thinks is his enemy?

Based on first-hand accounts from the Civil War and with a strong romantic thread, this is a tale of faith, espionage, hope, and courage historical fiction fans won't want to miss.

43. Etheldreda - Moyra Caldecott

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £14.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Etheldreda, Princess of East Anglia, Queen of Northumbria and Abbess of Ely, was a remarkable woman who lived in restless, violent times when old beliefs were dying and new ones were struggling to emerge.

Pagan clashed with Christian as the seven kingdoms of the Germanic tribes warred against each other and against the native Celts. Occasionally an uneasy peace was bought by the skilful use of the ‘diplomatic marriage’, and twice Etheldreda, though vowed to chastity, submitted to marriage for political reasons. When her second husband refused to accept the ‘arrangement’ between them, she fled south to the Island of Ely.

This is not only the story of a seventh-century Anglo-Saxon saint, but also the general human struggle to comprehend the enigma of existence and to come to terms with Christ’s God, faced as we are by a violent and cruel world.

This edition contains a chronology, genealogy, notes and a map.
