CHRISTIAN SUSPENSE SERIES by a USA Today Bestselling Author Finding her daughter after a disaster, before it was too late, was her greatest challenge. Finding his heart unattached to her was his.

Stella's concerns multiplied when she gets lost in sea...

unCommon Ground Book Description :

Such trivial things— a hutch full of rabbits, dishes left over after a church potluck, a bag of sugar, cleaning house— ordinary things and ordinary activities in which Frances Parker once again discovers the extraordinary.

Uncommon Ground Rethinking the Human Place in Nature Book Description :

A controversial, timely reassessment of the environmentalist agenda by outstanding historians, scientists, and critics. In a lead essay that powerfully states the broad argument of the book, William Cronon writes that the environmentalist goal of wilderness preservation is conceptually and politically wrongheaded. Among the ironies and entanglements resulting from this goal are the sale of nature in our malls through the Nature Company, and the disputes between working people and environmentalists over spotted owls and other objects of species preservation. The problem is that we haven't learned to live responsibly in nature. The environmentalist aim of legislating humans out of the wilderness is no solution. People, Cronon argues, are inextricably t...
