_______________ 'One of the most emotive accounts of life in Nazi Austria that I've ever read' - Guardian 'A moving portrait of a girl forced to come of age in a world at war' - Sunday Times 'Vividly depicted and shrewdly observed ... The world evoked here strikes me as fundamentally true' - Sydney Morning Herald _______________ An unforgettable, nightmarish coming-of-age story set in rural Austria towards the end of the Second World War. It is 1944, and war has taken the men in Nazi-controlled Austria to the front line. For thirteen-year-old Ursula Hildesheim, life in the village of Felddorf remains almost as it was: bullied by her schoolmates, idly thieving from the village shop, enlisted in endless chores by her mama and sister and running wild with her adored older brother Anton. But when Russian prisoners escape from the local concentration camp, her mama starts an affair with a married man, her friend goes missing and her brother's allegiance to the Hitler Youth emerges in shocking ways, Ursula finds herself alone, disturbed by dark memories, and surrounded by threat. In this new world of conflict, Ursula discovers a bravery she has never known before and is forced to recognise that danger comes not only from the enemy at the door but from the enemy within. My Own Dear Brother is a remarkable coming-of-age story and an unflinching study of both cruelty and courage. Rich in folklore, it introduces a daring young heroine and a powerful new literary voice. _______________ 'Intensely imagined' - Independent 'A powerful and absorbing novel ... Brilliantly done' - Esther Freud, author of Mr Mac and Me 'A touching chronicle of some of the lesser-known casualties of war and of the resilience of human spirit' - Washington Independent Review of Books 'Muller creates a flawed and vulnerable young heroine we believe in' - The Australian

"Dear Brother" is a fresh compilation of Catholic Apologetics targeted toward non-Catholic Christians. However, the book was especially written for Catholics who have found themselves in RCIA programs against the wishes of Protestant friends and family. It contains an exhaustive biblical defense of essential Catholic doctrines, a glimpse of the general councils in Church history, and the author's own conversion story. It is difficult to find so much material packed into one easy to read volume. "Dear Brother" manages this in a way that is both personal and compelling. A real page turner for anyone interested in Catholicism! FEATURES: - the author's personal testimony - a summary of each ecumenical council - a list of the popes - over twenty articles on saints - suggested reading and resource lists - quotes from the early Church - HUNDREDS of Scriptural references

“While books on sibling rivalry abound, [Dear Sister] brings freshness to the topic with McGhee's gentle humor and poignant scenarios…Dear indeed.” —Kirkus Reviews “A meaningful look at…siblinghood and all its foibles.” —Publishers Weekly What do you do when you have an incredibly annoying little sister? Write her letters telling her so, of course!

Inspired by the notes Alison McGhee’s own kids would write each other, this heavily illustrated collection of letters and messages from an older brother to his little sister reveal the special love—or, at the very least, tolerance—siblings have for each other.

Sooner or later every person faces questions about death and whether there is anything beyond it. This little book consists of personal and sometime private letters between three brothers who realize their own lives may soon come to an end. The wisdom they offer is not only for their own families and friends left behind, but for others who have faced the loss of loved ones. Writing from different religious perspectives, the letters are nonetheless spiritual in the way they seek to wrest from a life lived in the face of death some wisdom for one another as well as others who have shared their struggles with life's deepest questions. When he was asked about the essence of his philosophy, Plato reportedly said, "Practice dying." These letters take his wisdom to heart in a series of heartfelt exchanges over the course of a year, concluding with each author's request for what his memorial service would be like.
