6. The Rose in the Wheel A Mystery (Large Print 16pt) - S. K. Rizzolo

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 26.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

This well imagined, carefully detailed, and cleverly plotted debut draws on actual historical events of 1811 London. Regency London knows Constance Tyrone as the conspicuously celibate founder of the St. Catherine Society, dedicated to helping poor women. One wet November evening a carriage mows down Constance outside her office. Curiously, while her corpse's one foot is bare, the other is shod in a clean satin slipper despite the muddy road. Why was a gentlewoman abroad in the night? And if she died under the wheel, whose hands bruised her neck and stole her monogrammed crucifix? Dismissing the idea of an accident, Bow Street Runner John Chase forms an unlikely alliance with Penelope Wolfe, wife of the chief suspect. A young mother paying the price for an imprudent marriage, Penelope is eager to clear her husband Jeremy, a feckless portrait painter whose salacious drawings of the victim suggest an erotic interest. Chase's first task is to learn the identity of the mysterious benefactor who goes bail for Wolfe while Penelope traces the victim's last movements. Barrister Edward Buckler, intrigued, shakes off his habitual lethargy and joins their investigation. As horrifying murders on the Ratcliffe Highway claim all London's attention, the trio discovers that it won't be easy to unravel the enigma of Constance Tyrone, a woman who revives the legend of martyred St. Catherine.

7. Nine for the Devil A John the Lord Chamberlain Mystery (Large Print 16pt) - Mary Reed

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 27.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The year is 548 and Empress Theodora is dead, the victim of cancer. Or so everyone in Constantinople, capital of the Roman Empire, believes. Everyone except Emperor Justinian who orders John, his Lord Chamberlain, to find the murderer or suffer the consequences. John embarks on an impossible investigation. There is no sign of foul play, but many of the quarreling, backstabbing aristocrats at the imperial court had good reason to want Theodora dead. Suspects include General Artabanes, forced to occupy a house with an unloved wife; Justinian's cousin Germanus, who has seen his career blocked; and Antonina and her husband General Belisarius, enraged by Theodora's attempt to marry their daughter to her grandson by compelling the young couple to live together. Could the exiled and much hated former tax collector John the Cappadocian have played a role? Might Gaius, palace physician, have tampered with Theodora's medication? Pope Vigilius, detained in the capital due to a religious controversy, is not above suspicion. Even John's friends, the lawyer Anatolius and Felix, captain of the place guards, are acting strangely. As if seeking a murderer who seems to be a figment of the emperor's grief - deranged imagination isn't difficult enough, John must also grapple with domestic upheavals. His daughter, living on an estate outside the city, is about to give birth, and his aging servant Peter is dying. Will John be able to serve justice, his loved ones, and the emperor?

9. Gone to Hell True Crimes of America's Clergy (Large Print 16pt) - Randall Radic

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Theft, extortion, embezzlement, mafia ties, drunk driving and even murder - these are the true stories of priests gone bad.
It's a dark and windy Easter in Toledo, Ohio when Sister Margaret is found murdered in the chapel, the victim of a Satanic ritual. Twenty years later her murderer is revealed to be the parish priest Father Gerald. Monsignor Skehan and Father Guinan embezzled 8.1 million dollars from their affluent Palm Beach, Florida, church, Guinan fleeing to Ireland and leaving Skehan to face the music. Father Fink of Texas crashed his car into a restaurant while driving drunk, injuring ten people. The civil lawsuits that ensued featured innovative - and shady - defense tactics.
Radic dramatically retells these stories and many others, drawing on his personal trials as a pastor convicted of embezzlement, forgery, and fraud.

10. The Lucky Ones Our Stories of Adopting Children from China (Large Print 16pt) - Ann Rauhala

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

'What a lucky girl!'' Everybody who has adopted a daughter from China has heard that one. And every parent has said, or thought, in reply: ''No, we're the lucky ones.'' This anthology sets out to explain why people who have adopted children from China feel as though they've won the lottery. Since the late 1980s, as many as 7,000 Chinese - born girls have been adopted annually and now live in the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. They are officially orphans, victims of a rigorous birth control policy limiting most families to one child. These thousands of girls have formed an international Diaspora, a human wave with no exact parallel and yet numerous points of comparison - sharing issues with war orphans from Vietnam or even with Chinese workers who built the New World's railroads. The memoirs collected in The Lucky Ones are organized beginning with infertility, moving to acceptance of a multiracial family, anticipating the adoption, reflecting during the trip to China and, at last, grappling with an odd destiny - turning terrible beginnings into happy endings. The story of these girls is compelling as a narrative of hope and optimism but it may also become a story of dislocation and crisis of identity. These baby immigrants add unusual texture to the lives of the families they join - they come here not by choice but by someone else's design.

11. What's Wrong with University And How to Make It Work for You Anyway (Large Print 16pt) - Jeff Rybak

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The university system has its problems. Students invest a lot of time and money in education but all too often don't get what they came for. In What's Wrong With University, Jeff Rybak addresses the most pressing concerns for undergraduate students, and helps them cope with the university system. He illustrates the university as having five distinct functions, which are often in conflict with each other. Students often find themselves at cross purposes with those with different goals and motivations, and also with institutional features designed around the needs of those other students. As a result they are frequently frustrated by their experiences, lost in a system that isn't suited to them. Jeff explains how university really works, and provides advice on how all students can overcome these internal conflicts to get what they most want from the university experience.

15. Mary Jones and Her Bible (Large Print 16pt) - Mary Ropes

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Mary Jones was a poor little Welsh girl of the nineteenth century who desperately wanted her own Bible. It took her six years, but she managed to save enough money to buy one. Barefooted, she walked over the Welsh mountains for many miles in her search for the Word of God. She ended up at the home of the Reverend Thomas Charles, who was greatly moved by her courage and perseverance. Mary Jones was influential in God gathering a small group of believers that included a school master, a preacher, and several others. This group was greatly inspired by Mary's devotion to the Bible, and this led them to propose to the Council of the Religious Tract Society that they form a Bible society that would provide Bibles for the people of Wales. As a result, the British and Foreign Bible Society was established in London. This moving story shows what one young girl can do to bring about profound changes in society. This is a Victorian classic for children that has stood the test of time and continues to bring delight and spiritual excitement to children. This is an ideal book for home schools, Christian schools, and Christian families everywhere. Mary Jones and Her Bible is one of the top 100 religious books for children. The story has been retold in forty different languages. The Preface to the Original Edition states, ''This little book tells how one of the least of seeds has grown to be the greatest of trees.''
