'Simply glorious. Every nook and cranny of 1930s Singapore is brought richly to life' CATRIONA MCPHERSON 'Charming' RHYS BOWEN 'One of the most likeable heroines in modern literature' SCOTSMAN _________ Mirza, a secretive neighbour of the Chens in Japanese Occupied Singapore, is a known collaborator and blackmailer. So when he is murdered in his garden, clutching a branch of mimosa, the suspects include local acquaintances, Japanese officials -- and his own daughters. Su Lin's Uncle Chen is among those rounded up by the Japanese as reprisal. Hideki Tagawa, a former spy expelled by police officer Le Froy and a power in the new regime, offers Su Lin her uncle's life in exchange for using her fluency in languages and knowledge of locals to find the real killer. Su Lin soon discovers Hideki has an ulterior motive. Friends, enemies and even the victim are not what they seem. There is more at stake here than one man's life. Su Lin must find out who killed Mirza and why, before Le Froy and other former colleagues detained or working with the resistance suffer the consequences of Mirza's last secret. _________ Praise for Ovidia Yu: 'One of Singapore's finest living authors' South China Morning Post 'Chen Su Lin is a true gem. Her slyly witty voice and her admirable, sometimes heartbreaking, practicality make her the most beguiling narrator heroine I've met in a long while' Catriona McPherson 'Charming and fascinating with great authentic feel. Ovidia Yu's teenage Chinese sleuth gives us an insight into a very different culture and time. This book is exactly why I love historical novels' Rhys Bowen 'A wonderful detective novel . . . a book that introduces one of the most likeable heroines in modern literature and should be on everyone's Must Read list' Scotsman 'Unassuming, brilliantly observant' SCMP

Lily Bard is starting over again. She's disguised herself as much as she can, cutting her hair short and wearing baggy clothes, and she's moved to Shakespeare, Arkansas, where, working as a cleaning lady, she can sweep away the secrets of her dark, violent past. But Shakespeare is not the peaceful little community Lily had hoped for, and her idea of just fading into the background looks like it's doomed right from the beginning, when she discovers the dead body of her landlord ... Before long, everyone is going to know Lily Bard's name.

"In a world that views aging and senior citizens as obsolete, it is refreshing to read The Ripple Effect Cozy Mystery series by Jeanne Glidewell." ~Cindy Travis, Reviewer Join Rip and Rapella Ripple and the Chartreuse Caboose on Their First Three Adventures Filled With Mystery and Mayhem BOOK 1: A RIP ROARING GOOD TIME – Senior citizens and full-time RVers, Rip and Rapella Ripple, are headed to Rockdale, Missouri, in their old travel trailer (aka The Chartreuse Caboose) to attend a friend's surprise birthday party. But surprise quickly turns to shock when a party guest is found murdered and Lexie Starr, a friend of the Ripples, is hauled off to jail as suspect number one. Determined to exonerate Lexie, the Ripples put the Chartreuse Caboose in park and their investigating tactics in drive. But more than a simple frame-up is afoot when the victim's stepfather, who is also the local Police Chief, ignores the Ripple's findings. BOOK 2: RIP TIDE - Rip and Rapella Ripple are spending the holidays with daughter Regina, in their hometown of Rockport, TX. When Regina's new husband, Milo Moore, becomes a suspect in an off-shore harpooning homicide, the Ripples set out to exonerate him. But proving Milo didn't harpoon his best friend and business partner, Cooper Claypool—with Claypool's spear-gun while out poaching red snapper in the Gulf of Mexico—is more challenging than the Ripples anticipated. BOOK 3: RIPPED TO SHREDS - Visiting Wyoming's Rest 'n Peace RV Park, senior citizens and full-time RVers Rip and Rapella Ripple are intent on winning a wildlife photo contest. But while trying to snap the perfect nature photo, Rapella's game camera captures the truth behind the RV park owner's mysterious death.

Many of the great mystics and sages in history have told us that their spiritual realizations began in childhood. Gandhi, Albert Einstein, and Abraham Lincoln are just a few famous figures who have reported these events. Based on more than five years of interviews, this book combines startling firsthand accounts of secret spiritual lives, including recollections from adults who have forgotten or repressed such experiences in childhood. The author explains how parents, educators, and therapists can recognize, identify, and nurture children's deep spiritual connections. The book is divided into ten chapters treating the phenomena of wisdom, wonder, and visions, including guiding parents along the spiritual path, building a curriculum, and learning from children.
