We Thought We Knew You

In this chilling true-crime thriller by New York Times bestselling journalist M. William Phelps, a woman’s mysterious death in upstate New York plunges her family into a nightmare of backstabbing and vengeance . . . In July 2015, Mary Yoder returned home from the chiropractic center that she operated with her husband, Bill, complaining that she felt unwell. Mary, health-conscious and vibrant, was suddenly vomiting, sweating, and weak. Doctors in the ER and ICU were baffled as to the cause of her rapidly progressing illness. Her loved ones—including Bill and their children, Adam, Tamryn, and Liana—gathered in shock to say goodbye. In the weeks that followed Mary’s death, the grief-stricken family received startling news from the medical examiner: Mary had been deliberately poisoned. The lethal substance was colchicine, a chemical used to treat gout but extremely toxic if not taken as prescribed. Mary did not have gout. Another bombshell followed when the local sheriff’s office received a claim that Adam Yoder had poisoned his mother. But Adam was not the only person of interest in the case. Pretty and popular Kaitlyn Conley, Adam’s ex-girlfriend, worked at the Yoders’ clinic. She’d even been at Mary’s bedside during those last terrible hours. Still, some spoke of her talent for manipulation and a history of bizarre, rage-fueled behavior against anyone who dared to reject her. Had Kaitlyn and Adam conspired to kill Mary Yoder, or was the killer someone else entirely? In another twist, accusations were hurled at Bill Yoder himself, ricocheting blame in still another direction . . . Renowned investigative journalist M. William Phelps details this incredible story piece by piece, revealing a heartless plan of revenge—a scheme that would tear a family apart, divide a community, and result in two gripping, high-profile trials.

We Thought We Knew It All

Ten years ago, Jamie walked away. And I left my small town for the bright Hollywood lights, searching for something to make me whole again. I wanted to be more than Callie McCoy, the girl who’d lost too much. I never expected to stay away so long or to return home a different person than when I’d left. I certainly didn’t count on being face to face with Jamie again, let alone this army ranger version of him. The first time I see him, I punch him. The second time, I want nothing more than to turn back the clock. Because after a decade of missing my blond-haired surfer boy with the easy grin, I’m not sure I recognize the man who has come back to me. What if I let myself believe in him once again and his darkness consumes us both? We Thought We Knew It All is book 2 in the Invincible duet.

Daddy  We Hardly Knew You

“Ferocious psychic need and volcanic energy drive this combined memoir, detective story and travelogue” from the author of The Female Eunuch (The New Yorker). After her father died, influential feminist writer and public intellectual Germaine Greer realizes how little she knows about him. She decides to track the life of her father, an Australian intelligence officer during World War II, to uncover the roots of his secrecy and distance. As she painstakingly assembles the jigsaw pieces of the past, Greer discovers surprising secrets about her father, her family, and herself. During her three-year quest, Greer travels from England to Australia, Tasmania, India, and Malta; searches through scores of genealogical, civil, and military archives; and delves into the memories of the men and women who may—or may not—have known Reg Greer. Yet the heart of her “lyrical but brutal elegy” is her own emotional journey, as the startling facts behind her father’s façade force her to painfully examine her own notions of truth and loyalty, family and obligation (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). “Anyone who has done this kind of search will identify with Ms. Greer’s frustration, admire her persistence, laugh at her accuracy and rejoice in her discoveries.” —The New York Times Book Review “The deeply affecting climax is a remarkable feat of family reconstruction.” —Publishers Weekly

“In this collection, Colligan creatively pairs haiku and poems, strengthening the value, relationships, and sensibilities of both. Her formatting of the title after the poem creatively reinforces the haiku sense of the book while each leading haiku expertly sets the scene and tone for the next poem. The structure quickly captures you with wonder at what comes next. Make no mistake, this is a poetry book, but adeptly assembled to explore, mine, and extend the links between Western and Eastern forms. With her years of writing experience, Colligan’s use of imagery and expert word-smithing makes this connection enjoyable, memorable, and enriching.

The Three Mile Walk

We are all called to be change-makers in the world, and yet many of us don't know how to answer the call. Jesus Culture founder and pastor Banning Liebscher reveals the three key moves that will awaken your heart and propel you into a life of divine purpose. You were made for more than a life of holy discontent--more than the frustrating sense of sitting on the sidelines of your own life's purpose. From the beginning, Jesus has beckoned us out of passivity and into a high-stakes adventure with hearts fully alive, lives fully engaged, and the courage needed for both. With a heart-stirring message and compelling stories, founder of Jesus Culture and pastor Banning Liebscher will equip you with practical guidance to be and do all that God has called you to. The Three-Mile Walk draws from the biblical story of Jonathan, who, after a treacherous three-mile hike, boldly stepped into battle and watched God work a stunning victory in the midst of impossible odds. Likewise, Liebscher presents the three key attributes you need to fully engage your mission--courage, holiness, and faith. In his power-packed, memorable style, Liebscher offers fresh insight and instruction for answering your calling with a courageous "yes," and setting out on the journey of a lifetime. You are meant to change the world. It's going to be tough, surprising, and more fulfilling than you can imagine. You just need the courage to rise up and walk it out.

Little Sinners  and Other Stories

Winner of the Prairie Schooner Book Prize in Fiction, Karen Brown’s Little Sinners, and Other Stories features a sad, strange mosaic of women and men grappling with the loss and pain of everyday existence, people inhabiting a suburban landscape haunted by ghosts: a mother who leaps from a ridge, a mistress found at the bottom of the Connecticut River, a father who dresses in a pale blue-custom suit—and disappears. The dead leave behind postcards, houses, bottles of sherry, bones. They become local legends, their stories part of the characters’ own: an expectant mother in an isolated cottage on Long Island Sound uncovers an unsettling secret in her backyard; a troubled housewife is lured to a dinner party by a teenage girl whose mother has vanished under mysterious circumstances; a woman and her lover swim the pools of their neighborhood under cover of darkness; a young heiress struggles with mortality and the abandonments in her past. These stories capture the domestic world in all its blighted promise—a world where women’s roles in housekeeping, marriage, childbirth, and sex have been all too well defined, and where the characters fashion, recklessly and passionately, their own methods of escape.

The Truth About Money Lies

"As long as we can make our payments, we're okay...aren't we? To answer this and other provocative questions relating to your money, financial expert Russ Crosson teams up with gifted communicator Kelly Talamo to expose the common lies people believe about money. Through the use of everyday stories about men and women wrestling with financial decisions just like the ones we all make, Russ and Kelly refute these lies by revealing what the Bible says is the truth about money. Included are subtle lies that permeate out culture: we can't afford to give to our church or charity; what we do with our money is our own business; the more we have, the happier we'll be; my talents and abilities have produced my wealth; I can get rich quick." -- BOOK JACKET.

The Coronado Illusions

Soon after arriving in Manila in the early 1990s, Clay Sadler, the regional security officer at the U.S. embassy, is thrust into a chaotic world of uncertainty and deception. In a city where gunfire and explosions are commonplace, an early-morning ambush that leaves a senior American diplomat in critical condition appears to have been just another protest against the presence of U.S. military bases in the Philippines. But not everyone accepts that assumption. Sadler and the Coronado group, an organization dedicated to working with the Filipino government to prevent acts of violence against Americans in the Philippines, aren't convinced. They're committed to finding out who was responsible, what the perpetrators' motives were, and how to bring them to justice. While the intelligence resources of both countries are devoted to solving the crime, indications of a coup d'état by factions within the armed forces intensify. When the U.S. Secretary of Defense, Stan Martin, plans a trip to Manila, threats against Americans increase. Martin insists on proceeding with the visit as planned, but what happens when he arrives at Manila International Airport is captured on live television and shocks viewers around the world. With more American lives at stake every day, a determined Sadler is compelled to take steps beyond conventional protocol. What he discovers challenges his ability to distinguish truth from illusion.
