GIDEON’S JOURNEY

[alert style="warning"]Pre-Order Price for Kindle Edition $0.99[/alert]

"GIDEON'S JOURNEY" by  NAOMI STEVENS

Hope Langley was an up and coming artist with an enviable lifestyle, living in an idyllic country town with a handsome partner and a loving family. “Life couldn’t get any better than this”, she thought until a cruel twist of fate threatened to change the course of her life forever. Paralysed in a car accident and hovering between life and death, Hope survived against all odds. Alone after her partner left and with her self-esteem at an all time low, she was forced to re-assess her life. Then came the inevitable question, “Why me?” Gideon, her guardian angel appeared to her when she was at her lowest ebb, coming down to earth to help her in her darkest hours and falling in love with her in the process. It was almost like he was looking at a mirror image of his past. Hope reminded him so much of a loved one he had lost in another lifetime. He knew from the start it was going to be a tough assignment. Falling in love with a mortal girl was frowned upon in his world. His time on earth had long since passed and his job now was to be a messenger of God, travelling between this world and the next, helping others who have lost their way. At first Hope didn’t want to believe Gideon was real. She had never been a religious person. “Why don’t you just climb back up on top of whatever Christmas tree you fell off?” she had remarked. “We angels are not just ornaments on top of Christmas trees. That’s just how society portrays us. Like you we all have a purpose in life, to help those who really need us. There are many of us around, each with our own special qualities,” was Gideon’s response.

Women between Submission and Freedom

"Women between Submission and Freedom" by Huda Sharawi

Women between Submission and Freedom is a cultural, historical, and spiritual inquiry into the nature of contemporary Eastern and Western society which highlights the gender inequality plaguing contemporary Arabian culture. The author has witnessed first-hand the role of cultural influences in her religion and society. Her analysis begins with personal stories and everyday instances of misogynistic behavior suffered by herself and those around her. The author delivers an important message about the deception and brainwashing of women in these communities. She bears witness to a culture which has taught women to be submissive and accept the fact that their societal value only exists in relation and deference to men. Whether through direct or indirect pressure, such communities reduce the innate human value of women, at the same time as the patriarchal system reduces them to virtual slavery. This systematic denigration includes not only the misogynistic mentality, but the historical suppression of women’s ideas and creations. Read More...
