Joseph Plunkett's text, highly suitable for Lent, sees the sacrifice and character of the Savior infusing everything in the world: I see His blood upon the rose, and in the stars the glory of His eyes. Timothy Cooper's setting is richly expressive, building to several powerful climaxes before ending with a quiet reflection on seeing that His cross is ev'ry tree.
The Easter 1916 Rising: an unlikely band of freedom fighters - teachers, poets, writers, patriots, trade unionists - declare an Irish Republic. From this dramatic gesture, a nation is born... The rebellion that set Ireland free, told as a graphic novel.
The rebellion that set Ireland free, told as a graphic novel. The 1916 Easter Rising was an attempt by a small group of militant Irish republicans to win independence from Britain. It was the most significant rebellion in Ireland. Though a military failure, it set Ireland on the road to freedom from Britain. The book covers the story from the early planning to the final executions and includes the tragic romance between Joseph Plunkett and Grace Gifford. Following on from the success of political graphic novels such as Maus and Persepolis, this is accessible, informative and insightful history at its best.
Ireland in 1919 is seething with violence, tension and divided loyalties - and so is the heart of the beautiful, wilful heiress Catherine O'Connell-Gort. For Catherine, by heritage, is a glittering symbol of British rule and oppression - yet by inclination she is a traitor to her class. A fervent supporter of Sinn Fein, she is also the secret lover of Sean Brennan, an IRA volunteer who is being hunted by the police for terrorism and murder. When the British government decides to meet terror with terror, Catherine finds herself in a position of even greater conflict. Her father, a colonel in British Military Intelligence, recruits Major Andrew Butler, battle-scarred war hero and Irish landlord, to assassinate IRA leader Michael Collins. He also decides that the dashing major would make the perfect husband for his headstrong daughter ... In a violent climax of passion, guilt and betrayal, while her country hurtles towards civil war, Catherine faces an agonizing choice as she makes her final, fateful decision.

Sarah learns that she has a long lost nephew living in an orphanage. She is able to re-unite with Tommy, who lived in constant fear of the people who were supposed to take care of him. Especially those who served the man called Morgan. They were capable of any manner of cruelty that a child had to endure. Sarah learns that he has lived as the victim of a sadistic cult group that regularly performed gruesome acts of violence. Their world is turned upside down when Morgan, and many of his followers, pursues the boy to bring him back into their control. Tommy had something Morgan wanted. Something Morgan would kill for. Even when Tommy had been taken as far from the place of evil as he could, he was not safe. Morgan's followers were everywhere. They would stop at nothing to bring him back...to The Unholy Cult of the Blood Rose.

Rabbi Isaac Leeser (1806-1868) of Philadelphia was responsible for the first Jewish translation of the Bible made for American Jewry. Leeser's considerable learning in matters biblical and rabbinic derived in major measure from the fine research then flowering in Germany, and his translation of the Bible became in a short time the standard Bible for English-speaking Jews in America. I originally put this edition together, edited it and published it as a gift to my own father, who loves this Bible version.
