Kindle Daily Deal: Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and Me, by Ian Morgan Cron. Publisher: Thomas Nelson (June 7, 2011)Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and Me
by Ian Morgan Cron

-- "When I first discovered the grainy picture in my mother's desk - me as a towheaded two year old sitting in what I remember was a salmon-orange-stained lifeboat - I was overwhelmed by the feeling that the boy in the boat was not waving and laughing at the person snapping the photo as much as he was frantically trying to get the attention of the man I am today.

The boy was beckoning me to join him on a voyage through the harrowing straits of memory. He was gambling that if we survived the passage, we might discover an ocean where the past would become the wind at our back rather than a driving gale to the nose of our boat. This book is the record of that voyage."

When he was sixteen years old, Ian Morgan Cron was told about his father's clandestine work with the CIA. This astonishing revelation, coupled with his father's dark struggles with chronic alcoholism and depression, upended the world of a boy struggling to become a man.

Decades later, as he faces his own personal demons, Ian realizes the only way to find peace is to voyage back through a painful childhood marked by extremes - privilege and poverty, violence and tenderness, truth and deceit - that he's spent years trying to escape.

In this surprisingly funny and forgiving memoir, Ian reminds us that no matter how different the pieces may be, in the end we are all cut from the same cloth, stitched by faith into an exquisite quilt of grace.

"Simultaneously redemptive and consoling with bright moments of humor . . . this story is chock-full of sacredness and hope. Cron is one of only a few spirituality authors who could articulate these themes as poignantly."

by Sarah DiCello

-- You know you are alive, but what if you are dead?

Danielle Grayson is a beautiful, intelligent young woman in present-day Georgia, but when she closes her eyes, she becomes someone else in a different time, one hundred years earlier in fact.

Danielle's other life is as entrancing and romantic as her current one, and the contrast between the lifestyles is intriguing and enlightening, but what starts out as being dreamlike soon becomes real and strangely familiar.

Worse, whatever happens to her as Danielle seems to change the past, if it is a true past.

And when she finds she is not alone in being able to flip between the two worlds, life, love and death become really disturbing.

Kindle Daily Deal: Daughters of the North, by Sarah Hall. Publisher: HarperCollins e-books (October 13, 2009)Daughters of the North
by Sarah Hall

-- In her stunning novel, Hall imagines a new dystopia set in the not-too-distant future.

England is in a state of environmental crisis and economic collapse.

There has been a census, and all citizens have been herded into urban centers.

Reproduction has become a lottery, with contraceptive coils fitted to every female of childbearing age.

A girl who will become known only as "Sister" escapes the confines of her repressive marriage to find an isolated group of women living as "un-officials" in Carhullan, a remote northern farm, where she must find out whether she has it in herself to become a rebel fighter.

Provocative and timely, Daughters of the North poses questions about the lengths women will go to resist their oppressors, and under what circumstances might an ordinary person become a terrorist.

Length: 209 pages
