The Story Within Us: Women Prisoners Reflect on Reading features in-depth, oral interviews with eleven incarcerated women, each of whom offers a narrative of her life and her reading experiences within prison walls. The women share powerful stories about their complex and diverse efforts to negotiate difficult relationships, exercise agency in restrictive circumstances, and find meaning and beauty in the midst of pain. Their shared emphases on abuse, poverty, addiction, and mental illness illuminate the pathways that lead many women to prison and suggest possibilities for addressing the profound social problems that fuel crime. Framing the narratives within an analytic introduction and reflective afterword, Megan Sweeney highlights the crucial intellectual work that the incarcerated women perform despite myriad restrictions on reading and education in U.S. prisons. These women use the limited reading materials available to them as sources of guidance and support and as tools for self-reflection and self-education. Through their creative engagements with books, the women learn to reframe their own life stories, situate their experiences in relation to broader social patterns, deepen their understanding of others, experiment with new ways of being, and maintain a sense of connection with their fellow citizens on both sides of the prison fence.

Hizbullah ('Party of God') is one of the Middle East's major political forces. Sheikh Naim Qassem, its Deputy Secretary-General, provides and insider's view of this Shi'ite resistance group turned political party, from its inception to the present day. Formed in 1982 in response to Israel's invasion of Lebanon, Hizbullah was instrumental in forcing Israel to withdraw its troops in 2000. During the 1990s, after many years functioning as both a guerrilla movement and a social-support provider to Lebanese victims of war, Hizbullah moved into mainstream parliamentary politics. The group's mandate is laid out here, allowing access to the mindset of this important party at a crucial stage of its development. 'A comprehensive guide to the mandate of one of the Middle East's major political forces.' Washington Report on Middle Eastern Affairs 'A fascinating account of the creation and rise of Hizbullah.'

Psychotherapy’s Pilgrim-Poet: The Story Within imaginatively describes the interior experience of the therapeutic client by utilizing the images of epic literature as an interpretive lens for the psychotherapeutic process. Through the characters, plot, and psychological landscape of The Epic of Gilgamesh, Homer’s Odyssey, Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, and Toni Morrison’s Beloved, we look anew at the client’s motivation to journey, their courage, affects, memories and wounds, the therapeutic bond, the encounter with the unconscious, and the act of story-telling. The author demonstrates that depth psychological work is a soulful pilgrimage characterized by a spiritual and heroic descent to the deep psyche in pursuit of wholeness and the authentic self. Although this book is theoretically informed, it is not intended to provide clinical explanations; rather, it aspires to describe the psychotherapeutic experience from an inside point of view, from the inner life of the client.The primary aim is to renew and deepen an understanding of the client’s profoundly difficult and courageous psychological endeavor in depth psychotherapy. This book is a culmination of the author’s experiences as researcher, teacher, therapist, enthused reader of epic, and most importantly, as client. It weaves together the author’s personal stories with client vignettes, epic literature, depth psychology, mythological studies, and literary criticism.

Designed to help students to identify the different genres they encounter in their reading, to explore and discuss their findings, to become aware of how 'readings' of texts are constructed by gender, background and cultural influences, and to become aware of alternatives to the 'dominant' reading. Example genres given include short stories, autobiographies, biographies, journals, newspaper reports, interviews and essay writing. Each genre form is presented as a diagram, which illustrates how a writer's purpose and style shape the content of a text and thus determine its particular form.

The contributors to The Story Within share powerful experiences of living with genetic disorders. Their stories illustrate the complexities involved in making decisions about genetic diseases: whether to be tested, who to tell, whether to have children, and whether and how to treat children medically, if treatment is available. More broadly, they consider how genetic information shapes the ways we see ourselves, the world, and our actions within it. People affected by genetic disease respond to such choices in varied and personal ways. These writers reflect that breadth of response, yet they share the desire to challenge a restricted sense of what "health" is or whose life has value. They write hoping to expand conversations about genetics and identity—to deepen debate and generate questions. They or their families are affected by Huntington’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, genetic deafness or blindness, schizophrenia, cystic fibrosis, Tay-Sachs, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, fragile X, or Fanconi anemia. All of their stories remind us that genetic health is complicated, dynamic, and above all, deeply personal.

"Sophisticated and thought-provoking ... an urban fairy tale for grown ups." Avid Ashley *** GOLD MEDAL Winner in the 2016 Global Ebook Awards USA *** RED RIBBON Winner in the 2015 Wishing Shelf Awards UK A mystical forest ... A forgotten history ... A love that spans lifetimes First in the two-book Epiphany series and a captivating blend of history, mystery, contemporary romance and magic, THE GOLDING is a story-within-a-story, a whimsical tale about money and its unknown otherworldly origins. Rosetta Melki (part-time tarot reader, struggling sole parent and full-time idealist) begins a reading group to examine a fantasy novel, and discovers the book to be anything but fiction. The book, written in the 1770s by Edward Lillibridge, is a hidden history that reveals the true beginnings of the global monetary system. Lillibridge’s story surrounds ancients from a gold-obsessed empire and the sprites they oppress: elfin clan dwellers whose currency of choice is kindness. Whether discontent in rich and poor will ever make way for a world free of war and poverty, whether anyone can believe enough in humanity’s true ancient history to activate the dawn of a benevolent new era, remains to be seen. One thing, however, is certain. A prophecy must be fulfilled by someone in modern times, and the time-crossing sprites of Lillibridge’s descriptions have set their sights on Rosetta. But first they must ensure she meets her one true love. Feet-on-the-ground finance executive Matthew Weissler is hardly a likely candidate -- even less so after their klutzy introduction. He’s polished, successful, admired, and ... is disturbed to find he’s being followed by an elf. ****Includes detailed Character List Awards: GOLD MEDAL - 2016 Global Ebook Awards USA (Spiritual/Metaphysical Fiction) RED RIBBON - 2015 Wishing Shelf Awards UK (Books for Adults - Fiction) 5-STAR SEALS (x4) - 2015 Readers' Favorite USA (Fantasy) What readers are saying on international sites ... ... This book is the book of tomorrow, it will become a classic in years to come ... CillaWilson Australia The first thing that struck me about Terry’s debut novel was her seemingly effortless ability to entwine the contemporary and historical aspects of the story. At times the writing is nothing short of spellbinding, something that is rare these days, and even rarer at the beginning of a literary career. Rosey UK It's not often a book will inspire me to re-read paragraphs, but Epiphany - THE GOLDING's insights were well worth savouring. Both the inner and outer stories were equally compelling, and made for an easy transition from one time-frame to another. Sophisticated and thought provoking ... an urban fairy tale for grown ups. Avid Ashley Australia EDITORIAL REVIEWS A true delight. The unique dual storyline is such an interesting slant in story telling, and is very much worth the read. Tracey A Fisher, Readers' Favorite Sonya Deanna Terry writes with a sure hand. She artistically weaves a huge amount of history, spiritualism, philosophy, and romance into a powerful tale of good and evil. Epiphany will appeal to anyone interested in arcane and esoteric subjects such as the tarot, dragons, ancient civilizations, lost histories, and reincarnation. These are very big subjects and many readers will learn a lot. Ray Simmons, Readers' Favorite Every page has you wanting to turn to the next one to see what's going to happen, and the whole story has been brought together very nicely. It is a highly entertaining book and I really look forward to the next installment. Anne-Marie Reynolds, Readers' Favorite Sonya Deanna Terry has deftly and creatively combined two story lines, bringing them closer together as the book progresses until they actually overlap. While both are fiction, the two plots are taken from real life - greed, oppression, a struggle to survive and, as a balance, hope, love, faith and friendship. Epiphany has everything you want in a fantasy story - great characters, vivid descriptions of another place and time, believable present day action, and clear cut villains and heroes with a few surprises. Well worth reading for fun and for a subtle yet critical look at the future of the real world. Melinda Hills, Readers' Favorite Sonya has a talent that literary agents refer to as the ability to "Spin some yarn." As the pages began turning faster and faster, I was left wanting more. I cannot wait for her next book. Stephen Fisher, Readers' Favorite
