Approximately 1,500,000 Jewish children were murdered during the Holocaust — almost ninety percent of those alive in Europe in 1939. The vast majority of those who survived were hidden, either with their parents, or with strangers. For decades, they were considered too young to remember their experiences during the Second World War. I Didn’t Say Goodbye, by Claudine Vegh, a hidden child who grew up to become a child psychiatrist, was one of the earliest studies of a group known in France as “les enfants de déportés,” or “children of the deported.” The adults Dr Vegh interviewed were all hidden between the ages of five and thirteen. One or both of their parents were murdered in the Holocaust. Thirty-five years later, in the 1970s, many still felt as though they were alive “by accident.” “I Didn’t Say Goodbye, published in France in 1979, is an extraordinary collection of interviews with 17 French men and women who lost one or both parents in the deportations — and never talked about it... Anguished and raw, [the interviews] dramatize the awful inability to mourn.” — Wendy Kaminer, The New York Times Book Review “They were all children during the last war. They were all taken away from their families and kept in hiding... They are children of people who were deported... A small but worthy addition to the archives of Holocaust testimony.” — Kirkus Reviews “[A] book of haunted and haunting testimonies by men and women who lost one or both parents in the Holocaust.” — Chattanooga News-Free Press

When you fall in love with someone serving in the Armed Forces, it’s hard to imagine the impact their career will have on your life. In Don’t Say Goodbye, Fiona Stanford tells the untold story of the people left behind when our soldiers go off to fight. She reveals the hidden side to modern conflict – the story of the families, but in particular the wives, girlfriends, mothers and children – how it feels to live on a knife edge, bombarded with 24-hour news and footage of the war, and the constant terror that the next death you hear about on the television or the radio might be your loved one. Through tales of the Army lifestyle, she explains the reply to the age old question: ‘How do you cope?’ which is usually: ‘You just get on with it’ Fiona’s husband handed over command of the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards to Lt Col Rupert Thorneloe before they deployed to Afghanistan in 2009, During the tour seven of their men were killed, including Rupert, and many were wounded. Here she shares the rewards and challenges of Army life – the desperate goodbyes with young children in tow, the bittersweet sense of pride and the huge relief of homecoming. She also tells of other goodbyes; to friends when ‘posted on’, to children when they go away to school and the ultimate goodbye, revealing the heartache of families whose loved ones do not return. This is a story of love – how love can survive and even grow when couples are separated by thousands of miles and days of anguish. Don’t Say Goodbye sheds light on the unique camaraderie that develops amongst the women as they pull each other through the toughest of times. Poignant, inspiring and deeply moving, this book is a tribute to the women and families that support our heroes on the frontline.

They're so sorry... They've made a terrible mistake... There's nothing they can do... They have to take your daughter away. You have three weeks to say goodbye. After years of trying for a child, Jack and Melissa McGuane adopted a beautiful baby girl. Nine months later, a call from the adoption agency plunges them into every parent's worst nightmare: the father never signed away his parental rights, and now he wants his daughter back. The biological father is a sullen eighteen-year-old with gangland connections, and, even worse, is the son of a well-connected federal judge who is prepared to use the full weight of his influence to get what he wants. Together they wage a harrowing campaign of intimidation and harassment aimed at destroying the McGuanes before they can fight back. Jack and Melissa know that the boy has no love for his daughter, but what they don't know is why he and the judge want the girl so badly. With three weeks until they must legally hand over their baby, just how far outside the law are they prepared to go to find out?

What if the family you love the most is not your own? When Olivia's mother dies, she leaves behind an apology Olivia could never have expected. Years ago, Maggie did everything in her power to end a love affair between the teenage Olivia and her stepbrother-to-be Richie. Now, over twenty years later, Olivia has a letter that contains his address - and her mother's blessing to seek him out. 'Follow your heart,' Maggie writes, 'and put right my mistake.' It sounds like nothing more than a dying woman's fantasy; certainly not an instruction for a grown woman with a husband she loves, two sons in their teens and an established life in the same London suburb she grew up in herself. This is where Olivia belongs, isn't it? But, tormented by the memories her mother's letter stirs, she makes the decision to travel to the small coastal town where Richie lives with his young daughter Wren. Rediscovering her first love and falling for him a second time, Olivia realises that this is the life she had always imagined for herself, the one she has wanted all along. But where does that put the family she has left behind?

It will come as no surprise that Michael J. Arlen's first novel is at once romantic, disturbing, and original, an artistic achievement of impressive subtlety and force. A famous father and his estranged son meet for the first time in many years on the father's ranch in New Mexico. Tom Avery, a New York-based journalist on the edge of turning forty, thinks it's time for his new wife, Catherine, to meet his father, a celebrated Hollywood director Sam Avery. At seventy-two, Sam is still full of hell and larger than life--imperious, charming, catankerous, seductive, and dangerous. When the three come together, father and son seem doomed to increasing and potentially deadly conflict. At the same time, Tom's love for his pretty, somewhat unworldly wife is gradually transmuted by the threat of a strange, erotic triangle involving his father. The drama is enacted in a stark, real world--eagles soar in the mountains, a rider is thrown in a treacherous race--but it is also a dream world, the kind that sometimes takes over when men and women are caught up in unexpected feelings. Does Catherine, for instance, really abandon Tom for Sam? Or does Tom somehow "offer" his wife as a gift to his unapproachable father? And, for that matter, can Sam ever care about anyone but himself? Say Goodbye to Sam is concerned, in the end, with the dangers of love, and with the bravery required not only in loving someone but in being loved.

Working from a cheap office behind the Dairy Queen on Highway 301, he makes a threadbare living as a process server and savors his clinical depression like a fine wine. Life's a sneaky mistress, though, and has a way of suckering you into caring. Lew's found that he's really good at helping people get out of bad situations. That he matters. And Lew's therapist, who alternately acts as his conscience and his sparring partner, tells him that unless he's willing to leave the planet, it's about time that he goes back to Chicago and closes the door to the past so that he can finally get on with the rest of his life. Lew hates to admit it, but he's beginning to see her point. So Lew returns to his home town, to friends and family...and to a grief that threatens to engulf him. He's resolved to dig until he finds out who killed his wife. In doing so, he'll uncover both sweet and painful memories of his past.

Adding honor as a factor in raising kids …and parent-child relationships. Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller offer a thorough program for establishing honor as a basis of family life — not just children honoring parents, but parents respecting children and children honoring each other. Even if honor seems a long way off in your household, you will find practical suggestions here to bring that goal a little closer — suggestions for kids of all ages. Honor is the biblical value that will bring about good behavior. It’s more than just changing what kids do; it’s changing the deeper issues of the heart that triggered the behavior.
