In the summer of 1844, Tom Lyman flees to Bonaventure, a transcendentalist farming cooperative tucked away in eastern Connecticut, to hide from his past. There Lyman must adjust to a new life among idealists, under the fatherly eye of the group’s founder, David Grosvenor. When he isn’t ducking work or the questions of the eccentric residents, Lyman occupies himself by courting Grosvenor’s daughter Minerva. But Bonaventure isn’t as utopian as it seems. One by one, Lyman’s secrets begin to catch up with him, and Bonaventure has a few secrets of its own. Why did the farm have an ominous reputation long before Grosvenor bought it? What caused the previous tenants to vanish? And who is playing the violin in the basement? Time is running out, and Lyman must discover the truth before he’s driven mad by the whispering through the walls.

The book, an academic monograph, is a comprehensive study of the socio-linguistics of black South African literature in English from its beginnings, grounded in historical and political change as befits a postcolonial approach, with the inherent struggles between language and power. Its innovation is that it traces stylistic devices used by successive generations of black writers back to such sources as African orature, indigenous cultures and languages, and indigenization and creolization of South African languages.

The doctor told Wanda that she had a fourth of an ovary and that child bearing was not an option. God had promised her that she would have children. Was God going to lie to her? God fulfills His promises. After years of waiting and trying, Wanda brought five children into this world and was a mother just as was promised. With the miracle came an unwanted price since we have come to believe that Heaven has a price on some of its most cherished of gifts. It wasn’t that it was authored by a loving God, but the seeds of cancer were sown as the gift was made real for five times. This young family would watch their mother succumb to a dreadful disease, slowly leaching the life from her. Wanda had a challenge understanding why the children she had been promised wouldn’t be hers to raise to adulthood. Christmas would come that year before she finally died in February and the gift she craved was just to understand God’s will in granting the blessing and then seemingly ripping it away in a slow death. Miracles happen to create life and miracles happen to explain why life gets cut short.

When we whisper a prayer here on earth, God resounds with the answer from Heaven in the form of the thundering voice of our heavenly Father. I know that heaven resounds with the voice of God when we talk to Him in prayer. He waits for us to understand the power of our words. And then He can begin to operate within the spiritual realm to bring about the answers to the prayers that are whispered to Him. God is always ready and able to intercede when we take the time to tell Him about our situation and the situations of others. Have you heard The Thundering Whisper? Prayer is the most powerful tool we have. But like any tool, it must be used properly to get the desired results. Do you forget to pray on a daily basis? Are your prayers self-serving and full of material wants? Is prayer a rushed chore for you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then join Reverend Gary Hamer in The Thundering Whisper as he shows us how to properly use prayer. By praying correctly, we speak directly to God and share our innermost thoughts with Him. We can fully understand God's intent just by praying to Him the right way! Reverend Hamer will guide you on how to appropriately pray and thus to a better understanding of prayer, yourself, and God in The Thundering Whisper.

When Kate forsakes London to join her husband in the North of Scotland, it is more than a journey to an unfamiliar land. The spirit of the Highland village, invested with ancient clan warfare, works its magic on her; and the foundations of her matter-of-fact marriage, and of her being, shift eerily. Kate soon finds herself enmeshed in the tangle of desires, jealousies and darker emotions that run riot beneath the deceptively calm surface of the ingrown little town. Passions rise in the hills; guilty secrets are laid bare in the valleys; and a lonely and ironic death on a mountainside rights old wrongs. 'One of the most haunting, with a marvellously romantic Highland setting ... eminently satisfying and inevitable' Publishers Weekly
