A young man dies a hero in the Pacific in the closing months of World War II. His name is Noboru. His mission: that of a Kamikaze pilot. It is his lasting legacy that shadows this magnificent multi-generational saga spanning fifty years of war and peace­from Japan's grim wartime defeat to its stun­ning economic world triumph today. Nancy Freedman, bestselling author of the unforgettable Mrs. Mike, has written her crowning achievement in this richly textured novel about three generations of a Japanese family whose story crosses all cultural bound­aries and geographical borders between East and West. At its heart is Momoko, Noboru's young widow, whose personal metamorphosis mirrors the changing face of Japan itself. Her courage and spirit are put to the test as she strives to rebuild her life in a society which denies all power to her sex. She is a mother who watches her young son Akio grow into a man she increasingly fears. His vast power is all the more dangerous for his being so brilliant; he is all the more shameful for his willingness to betray his mother's sacred secret. Akio{ fueled by revenge and twisted patriotism, builds a global business juggernaut to regain honor for his country so that Japan may finally conquer with economic might what it long ago failed to do with military force. As her son persists in waging a war long over, Momoko holds fast to the traditional values of Japan, finding their modern day application in an ever-changing world. Ten years in the making, The Seventh Stone is a majestic novel of historic scope that expertly intertwines one woman's story within the larger story of a family, a culture, and a tra­dition. The result is a mesmerizing novel peo­pled with characters to treasure and a stunning portrait of a rich, enigmatic culture where a feu­dal past collides with an onrushing future. NANCY FREEDMAN is the author of ten novels, including her bestselling Mrs. Mike, which has been translated into twenty-seven languages and has been kept continuously in print since 1949.

"'The Thistle that is in Lebanon" is the harassed, weak, yet simple disciple of the Eastern Church; and "the Cedar that was in Lebanon" is the true Church of Christ, whose seeds were first derived from [Syria's] Holy shores, and are now firmly rooted in England. The Thistle has sent to ask thy daughter, Enlightenment, in marriage to her son, Simplicity. O refuse her not! lest the wild beast in Lebanon should tread down the Thistle and obtain the ascendancy.'" A nineteenth-century Syrian Christian raised in Lebanon, Habeeb Risk Allah Effendi was a traveller, emigre and doctor whose charming, anecdotal traveller's tales take us throughout his troubled native land and on to Egypt, Malta, France and England. From pirates, belles and balls to the status of women and the role of health care in society, Effendi's position as outsider lend his observations of his own and other cultures a unique perspective. But this is more than a travelogue, and the detailed account of life in nineteenth-century, multi-faith Syria is more than an introduction to a then - and even now - exotic realm. Effendi hoped to arouse interest in the future development of his country, which he regarded as having great promise and potential. He was particularly interested in securing English interest - and help. Despite their apparent 'lack of reverence for beards' and an irritating 'devotion of the young fair sex to uniforms', Effendi believed that the English, with their Protestant and therefore (as he saw it) tolerant and enlightened views, could act as a moderating, beneficial influence, both for the Christian faith in Syria and for his country as a whole. ., Garnet, 2001, i2i, UK.

Book Description: "Men of Conviction" tells the fascinating tale of three desperate and disparate young men, released from prison on the same day. They are Hussein, the Islamist preacher of Jihad, Wayne the burglar and Dovid the religious Jew and 'one offence fraudster'. "Men of Conviction" is their story over the ensuing ten years. Hussein, predictably, builds a shadowy Jihadist organisation with the intention, through terrorism, of creating the Caliphate of Britannia under Shari'a law. Wayne is determined to change his life and almost accidentally finds himself the owner of a chain of Massage Parlours. By his previous standards, this is the path to wealth and respectability! Dovid, on the other hand, with the aid of his wealthy grandfather, becomes a successful property developer. The action takes place in such contrasting locations as 21st century Manchester, Istanbul, Afghanistan, Belfast and a mysterious breakaway Islamic republic. The contemporary background to the plots ensures the airing of such issues as Islamist and Irish terrorism, religious intolerance and drug trading. The main characters are easily recognised as typical members of today's British multi-cultural society. As the cataclysmic ending approaches, the paths of the three main characters are destined to cross again in an epic and amazing ending. : About the Author: Lionel Ross was born in 1935 and lives in Manchester, England with his wife Luise. He has two sons and six grandchildren. He originally worked in textiles but is now a full-time author and publisher. His first novel 'Fine Feathers,' was originally published by PublishAmerica in 2005 and received considerable critical acclaim. (Subsequently re-published in the UK by i2i Publishing.) His second novel 'Hidden Heritage' (2006) launched him into the entirely new world of the Historical Saga. This was followed in 2007 by 'The Baghdad Declaration,' a thriller with the backdrop of the Iraq War. His large and growing band of readers has waited patiently for 'Men of Conviction' his fourth offering. There can be no doubt that it will be enthusiastically received.
