For the Love of Luke

"For the Love of Luke: Our commitment to life in the midst of certain loss" by Michelle Lynn Forester

What do you do when God calls you to walk through an unthinkable tragedy? When I was twelve weeks pregnant with our son, Luke was diagnosed with a terminal neurological condition. We were assured that he would not live. My husband and I had a choice to make - did we follow the advice of our doctors and proceed with a medical termination, or did we follow our convictions and continue the pregnancy no matter the cost?

The Vagabond King

"The Vagabond King: A Coming of Age Story" by James Campion Conway

When his mother dies and he discovers the man he believed was his father is not, sixteen year old Chris is haunted by a mysterious apparition that forces him to question his pampered existence and embark upon a quest to find himself. Hoping she will “make a man of him”, he seeks sanctuary in the home of Magda, a middle aged waitress with a penchant for sex, only to discover she lives with her father, a cigarette smoking, beer swilling immigrant. Chris hates his shabby new surroundings at the end of the street and the shabby old man at the end of his life who spends his days listening to old blues records and making Chris fetch him fresh cans of beer. But, when the old man tells tales of Communist Hungary, torture, escape and the mysterious medallion he wears, Chris learns that, like the old man’s skipping records, history repeats itself and the roles we play have been played many times before.
