As a young psychology student, Hailey Dean's world explodes when Will, her fianc, is murdered just weeks before their wedding. Reeling, she fights back the only way she knows how: In court, prosecuting violent crime . . . putting away the bad guys one rapist, doper, and killer at a time.

Unless she returns to her former life and solves the case, still more innocent people will die at the hands of a killer who plans to get her, before she can get him!

Explanation of the Book:

This novel revolves around the life of Archana Guha, whose unique destiny became the subject of continuous media attention for nearly twenty years in India, Europe, USA and Japan. One night in1974, Archana, her brother's wife and a family friend who happens to be staying the night at their house, were taken hostage by the police, because Archana's younger brother, Saumen, was a member of a terrorist underground movement which is at war with the police and preparing for armed insurrection. When Archana's brother is caught, the three women are sent to prison indefinitely, along with him, on trumped-up charges. Her ordeal in the torture chamber of the Kolkota police leaves Archana paralysed in both legs. Lying helplessly on her mattress, she loses hope of ever returning home and walking again. After Archana's brother is released from prison, he initiates a public campaign against the torturers, which the family is sucked into. His pursuit of revenge becomes a way of life which tries to take Archana hostage for a second time. This is a psychological drama about exceptional, indomitable people, but also about the hell human beings create. It is a political drama about torture as a means of combating terrorism, and about terrorism as a reaction to state terror. It is a human drama about survival, about how to hold on to your humanity when everything has been taken from you. Translated from the Russian by Melanie Moore and Clare Kitson.

Explanation of the Book:

Universally acclaimed, rapturously reviewed, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for autobiography, and an instant New York Times bestseller, Chanel Miller's breathtaking memoir "gives readers the privilege of knowing her not just as Emily Doe, but as Chanel Miller the writer, the artist, the survivor, the fighter." (The Wrap). "I opened Know My Name with the intention to bear witness to the story of a survivor. Instead, I found myself falling into the hands of one of the great writers and thinkers of our time. Chanel Miller is a philosopher, a cultural critic, a deep observer, a writer's writer, a true artist. I could not put this phenomenal book down." --Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Love Warrior and Untamed "Know My Name is a gut-punch, and in the end, somehow, also blessedly hopeful." --Washington Post She was known to the world as Emily Doe when she stunned millions with a letter. Brock Turner had been sentenced to just six months in county jail after he was found sexually assaulting her on Stanford's campus. Her victim impact statement was posted on BuzzFeed, where it instantly went viral--viewed by eleven million people within four days, it was translated globally and read on the floor of Congress; it inspired changes in California law and the recall of the judge in the case. Thousands wrote to say that she had given them the courage to share their own experiences of assault for the first time. Now she reclaims her identity to tell her story of trauma, transcendence, and the power of words. It was the perfect case, in many ways--there were eyewitnesses, Turner ran away, physical evidence was immediately secured. But her struggles with isolation and shame during the aftermath and the trial reveal the oppression victims face in even the best-case scenarios. Her story illuminates a culture biased to protect perpetrators, indicts a criminal justice system designed to fail the most vulnerable, and, ultimately, shines with the courage required to move through suffering and live a full and beautiful life. Know My Name will forever transform the way we think about sexual assault, challenging our beliefs about what is acceptable and speaking truth to the tumultuous reality of healing. It also introduces readers to an extraordinary writer, one whose words have already changed our world. Entwining pain, resilience, and humor, this memoir will stand as a modern classic.

Explanation of the Book:

The Rise of Victimhood Culture offers a framework for understanding recent moral conflicts at U.S. universities, which have bled into society at large. These are not the familiar clashes between liberals and conservatives or the religious and the secular: instead, they are clashes between a new moral culture—victimhood culture—and a more traditional culture of dignity. Even as students increasingly demand trigger warnings and “safe spaces,” many young people are quick to police the words and deeds of others, who in turn claim that political correctness has run amok. Interestingly, members of both camps often consider themselves victims of the other. In tracking the rise of victimhood culture, Bradley Campbell and Jason Manning help to decode an often dizzying cultural milieu, from campus riots over conservative speakers and debates around free speech to the election of Donald Trump.

Explanation of the Book:

Victors & Victims unveils the truth that people who find success and joy in life are those who know who they are and give it, versus those who know what they want and take it. Success in life comes in many different forms. Profitable careers and businesses come to mind, but what about happy marriages, well-raised kids, loyal friendships? Success, no matter what its form, has the same foundations. Mastering them means mastering life. We all have different core passions. Some cry for freedom, some for security; some dwell on the past and some on the future. Our core passions dictate how we communicate and what messages and beliefs we listen to and follow. When you understand your own core passions as well as those of the people around you, you can communicate successfully and form powerful relationships filled with joy and promise. And how you understand yourself, God, and your passions will determine whether you live your life as a victim (always wanting and taking more), or a victor (joyously giving more, thus receiving more). In this book, Ken Harrison draws from his powerful experiences fighting violent criminals as a police officer in Los Angeles, running and selling international companies, and his 24-year marriage to his high school sweetheart in order to give the keys to turning ambition into success.

Explanation of the Book:

This book is a book of hope. It is a book that will show its readers a path away from feeling like one does not fit in anywhere and to a path where one feels acceptance, confidence, and that they are loved and do fit in, but probably not the way that they expected. It explores what victimization is, how it affects people, and all the different aspects of being a victim—feelings like isolation, not fitting in, depression, broken-heartedness, being shunned, suffering survivor’s guilt, and unforgiveness. It explores the side effects of feeling victimized, such as alcohol and drug abuse, prescription drug abuse, guilt complexes, lack of self-control, depression, anger, and fear. Each of these topics is discussed at length, including scriptural references regarding them and how these same emotions and trials were prevalent in biblical times as well as current times. Most importantly, however, this book tells how the author learned to rely not on himself for guidance and solutions, but on Jesus. It discusses how the author himself overcame fear, isolation, and decades of feeling victimized by surrendering the battles, disappointments, decisions, and paths to follow to God’s leadership, and therein found peace, forgiveness, contentment, joy, and thanksgiving for every new day with Jesus.
