Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Called by many Mexico's "Gone with the Wind", the novel is a panorama of three momentous decades in Mexican history: 1900-1931. The story is based on the life of an extraordinary Mexican woman who defied tradition and class to bring change to her country and the price she paid for a dream destroyed. Antonieta Rivas Mercado was the daughter of the architect of Mexico's famous Independent Monument, popularly known as "The Angel". She intensely lived the last decade of a long dictatorship which ended in the lavish Centennial celebration of 1910, the chaos wrought by ten years of violent revolution and the struggle for power among the Generals who established the social and political order by which Mexico is governed today. Educated in Europe, brilliant and heiress of a fortune, Antonieta became the muse and patron of the young writers, artists and musicians of the twenties eager to join the modern world. The "scandalous" Antonieta consorted with the likes of Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Tina Modotti, Federico Garcia Lorca as well as bullfighters, communists and Ambassadors. She dared seek a divorce: her ill-fated marriage to Albert Blair, an Anglo-American revolutionary, and her obsession with a homosexual painter became Antonieta's personal "vía crucis". In 1928 she entered the political arena and led the cause for women's right to vote in the campaign of Presidential candidate, José Vasconcelos. They shared a vision of an educated, just and democratic Mexico. Committed to their mutual goal, Antonieta devoted her heart and her money to his campaign. Caught in the vortex of the fraudulent election of 1929, her lover defeated, her money gone and violence flaring, she kidnapped her son and fled to Paris. An inspiration to so many, the internal woman churned with insecurities and conflicting emotions. At the age of thirty, Antonieta Rivas Mercado committed suicide in Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

Download or read book In the Shadow of Angels written by Susan Breiddal and published by FriesenPress. This book was released on 2021-11-09 with total page 216 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “You people are angels!” This is how many respond to those who work in palliative care. How hospice care professionals manage the emotional tension of being surrounded by sick, dying, and grief-stricken people is unfathomable. Over her 20 years of work as a hospice counsellor, author Dr. Breiddal, has collected stories of how ordinary people face death and dying. In this living body of work she reveals the skills needed, along with the struggles and rewards of providing hospice care. Bridging memoir and creative nonfiction, she weaves together theory and practice in the service of the dying and their families. Breiddal aims to make the often-strange reality of death accessible through an intimate, raw, and realistic portrayal of the art of providing loving end-of-life care. Admittedly, being called to this work is to be pulled out of everyday life which requires a willingness to have one’s sense of safety and familiarity challenged: to be off-balance, to surrender to uncertainty, change, discomfort and growth. Encouraging a relational way to encounter mortality, she offers hope that caring for the dying and bereaved is a paradoxical opportunity to open up to life. By entwining her personal and professional experiences, the author presents a timely primer for readers who are facing the death of their loved ones, their own death, or are bereaved. Additionally, both those currently working in the field or considering a career in palliative care will find In the shadow of angels: Intimate stories from a hospice counsellor a fascinating read.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For anyone who has suffered loss, or is facing a personal trial, the pain can be overwhelming, and you might feel at a loss as to where to look for healing. From a young age I have wondered about the day that I will die and what my life will have meant. At the age of twenty-two, I was confronted by death in the form of cancer, and then again at age thirty-three in the form of heart disease. Those events helped clarify for me what direction my life should take, but only with the help of other people, my angels in the shadow of death. They helped show me the light when all I saw was darkness. And now I try to be an angel myself, to help those who feel like they are living in death’s dark shadow. We should never have to suffer alone. This is the story of my journey from illness to health, from darkness to light, and I hope that it brings healing and light to all who read it.

MICAH I was born in Sin, and shadow is all I’ve known… until her. My father is the most powerful of the shadow angels, and his lessons for me have always been simple, cruel, and full of pain: there is no Love in the shadow realm. I’ve survived by learning those lessons, reading his moods, and keeping my head down when his Wrath is unleashed. But I couldn’t let him again use the soft body of a woman to teach me not to care… so I helped Ren escape. I let her go because I can never have her—this way, at least the baby and her are safe. Only now, my father’s bent on destroying everything in his mad quest to take down the Light angels and enslave the humanity he loathes. And the woman I love is once again in his sights… REN I’ve got a bad habit of picking Bad Boys… but the prince of the shadow realm? Really? Micah was going to be a hot, one-night fling—her last Bad Boy before she straightened up her life for good. After that, she would find a grown-up man who didn’t need a woman to fix his life. But tomorrow turned into a week later, and suddenly, she was waking up in love and totally pregnant with Micah’s baby. And trapped in a hellscape of shadow angels in the middle of an immortal war. All she wanted was Micah’s love… but this time, Mr. Wrong was Mr. Devastatingly Wrong. And no matter what the Light angels said, she wasn’t going back to Hell to fix him—even if it might stop a war. In a war that threatens mortals and immortals alike, those in shadow have the most to lose—if the Warrior Angels awaken, it will spell their doom. Redemption might be found through the soft embrace of Love, but how to find Love in the middle of war? Especially when the forces of darkness will do anything to stop it.

Book excerpt: In his book In the Shadow of Angels, , Charles Maldon reflects upon that season of his life when he was without the peace of God. He presents the contribution of several extraordinary saints whom he addresses as angels who are largely responsible for his journey and victory into the perfect peace of God. He reveals the uniqueness of each angel and relates the love and care provided by each when he needed someone to encourage and stand by him on his march toward his purpose and calling in God. These individuals displayed strength and character that became an incentive for him to strive to be the best person that God ordained him to be. Without them being there, his life in the Deep South would almost definitely have taken a different direction. By the mercy of God, he encountered each of them at a time when he was in desperate need of love and encouragement to keep from fainting. Each of them left him with a lifetime memory and a victory of healing and peace and thankfulness.
