Judith McCain returns to Monroe Beach to help Sarah James, who sees women standing behind her in her mirror, that turn up dead on the beach. Sarah dreams of the killer but can't make out his face. Then she sees herself behind her image in the mirror and fears for her life. Judith is called upon by the FBI to profile a killer who rapes his victims, dresses them in a white robe, and then drowns them. Although she has no problem profiling the killer, Judith feels she is in over her head when it comes to helping Sarah. She calls Delilah, the older black woman with second sight, who is Dave Boudreau's cook and housekeeper, to help her. They head down to Jacksonville, to Oceans Sands Psychiatric Center, and meet with Dr. Anna Stevens, who helped Julia, Judith's sister, when she tried to commit suicide. 1. Language: English.

For the Sake of Elena, Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 181min

Elena Weaver was a surprise to anyone meeting her for the first time. In her clingy dresses and dangling earrings, she exuded a sexuality at odds with the innocence projected by the unicorn posters on her walls. While her embittered mother fretted about her welfare from her home in London, in Cambridge - where Elena was a student at St. Stephen's College - her father and his second wife each had their own very different image of the girl. As for Elena, she lived a life of casual and intense physical and emotional relationships, with scores to settle and goals to achieve - until someone, lying in wait along the route she ran every morning, bludgeoned her to death. Unwilling to turn the killing over to the local police, the university calls in New Scotland Yard. Thus, Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley and his partner, Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, enter the rarefied world of Cambridge University, where academic gowns often hide murderous intentions. For both officers, the true identity of Elena Weaver proves elusive. Each relationship the girl left behind casts new light both on Elena and on those people who appeared to know her best - from an unsavory Swedish-born Shakespearean professor to the brooding head of the Deaf Students Union. What's more, Elena's father, a Cambridge professor under consideration for a prestigious post, is a man with his own dark secrets. While his past sins make him neurotically dedicated to Elena and blind to her blacker side, present demons drive him toward betrayal.  1. Language: English. Narrator: Derek Jacobi.

Mind Control Tactics of Gaslighters: False Imag...

Most people who are fooled by the gaslighter eventually start to question who he really is. He develops his fancy exterior, but the gaslighter rarely or never develops his interior. He works on his "look", but he doesn’t work on his personality. He is rough around the edges, at best. He only tries to fit in so far as it takes for him to gain trust with other people.The gaslighter wears the right clothes. He dresses impeccably. He pays special attention to his looks. He showers daily. He doesn’t leave the house without refining his look. He doesn’t need to be clean-shaven. He just needs to fit in with those around him.Don’t try to look too close at his false image. Underneath that false exterior, there isn’t really much to the gaslighter. The gaslighter’s wife often knows him for 40 years without really knowing him. If he does let her into his fragile interior, he is afraid that she will poke fun at who he really is. He is afraid she will laugh that he is merely a child beneath adult-sized clothing.The gaslighting man-child relates better to children because he never learned to relate to adults. He couldn’t carry on responsibilities of an adult alone if his life depended on it. His future terrifies him because he cannot fend for himself and must rely on other people all the time just for his own survival. He still watches Tom and Jerry on Saturday morning with his bowl of fruit loops. He does whatever he can to dodge his honey do list because he is too embarrassed or too lazy to tell anyone else that he doesn’t know how to do the stuff on the list.  Buy the audiobook to learn more. 1.

Lost Boy , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 510min

ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the polygamous Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (FLDS), girls can become valuable property as plural wives, but boys are expendable, even a liability. In this powerful and heartbreaking account, former FLDS member Brent Jeffs reveals both the terror and the love he experienced growing up on his prophet's compound and the harsh exile existence that so many boys face once they have been expelled by the sect. Brent Jeffs is the nephew of Warren Jeffs, the imprisoned leader of the FLDS. The son of a prominent family in the church, Brent could have grown up to have multiple wives of his own and significant power in the 10,000-strong community. But he knew that behind the group's pious public image - women in chaste dresses carrying babies on their hips - lay a much darker reality. So he walked away, and was the first to file a sexual-abuse lawsuit against his uncle. Now Brent shares his courageous story and that of many other young men who have become "lost boys" when they leave the FLDS, either by choice or by expulsion. Brent experienced firsthand the absolute power that church leaders wield, the kind of power that corrupts and perverts those who will do anything to maintain it. Once young men no longer belong to the church, they are cast out into a world for which they are utterly unprepared. More often than not, they succumb to the temptations of alcohol and other drugs. Tragically, Brent lost two of his brothers in this struggle, one to suicide, the other to overdose. In this book he shows that lost boys can triumph and that abuse and trauma can be overcome, and he hopes that readers will be inspired to help former FLDS members find their way in the world. 1.

The Amish: The History and Legacy of One of Ame...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Back in the 16th century, the Protestant Reformation took Europe by storm. The havoc wreaked saw the split of churches and the emergence of the Amish, led by Jakob Ammann. By the 18th century, a group of Amish had crossed the seas to the United States, where they made their home, and today the Amish are now one of the fastest-growing populations in the world. Buggies, straw hats, long and plain dresses in shades of blue and black, charming log cabins reminiscent of Little House on the Prairie - this is often the mental image that comes to mind when one thinks of the Amish. Nowadays, many have become accustomed to being within a 10 foot radius of at least three pieces of technology every hour of the day. World news and current events have never been more readily available, accessible by just a touch of a fingertip. Yet there exists a collection of cultures worldwide that steer clear of contemporary society for a range of reasons. These communities, which also come in various forms around the world, are the descendants of the Swiss Anabaptist movement. The Amish are famed for their simple living, commitment to sanctity, and being a community that seems to be at a standstill in time. What is less known about them is the deep culture, tradition, and faith, making them one of the most unique communities that has ever graced civilization. Americans have heard of the Amish, but most know little about them. They are often seen as unconventional and strictly religious, but quiet, calm folk who keep to themselves. Those who have heard of them know of their rejection of electricity and most, if not all modern aspects of life. Those who have taken a gander at the dozens of "reality shows" that have sprung up over recent years may have even heard of the famous - but often inaccurately depicted - Rumspringa. But beyond the buggies and prayer bonnets lies an intriguing culture that has remained strictly loyal to its roots. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Clem.

Adoption of the Kenya National Dress
64,90 € *

This book discusses factors influencing adoption of the Kenya National Dress (KND) with an aim towards developing a decision-making model to enhance future adoption of local designs. Drawing on research findings, the author observes that while awareness of the KND's existence is high and the design linked to Kenyan communities' traditional dresses, there is a need to have the KND models present an authentic Kenyan image. She also suggests improving the KND by using various local fabrics in the Kenyan flag colours while incorporating beadwork. The book shows that designers/custom tailors' designation or position and fashion design or construction training, the consumers' gender and highest education level are factors that influence the adoption of the KND. Beatrice posits that the interaction between consumers, designers and custom tailors is vital towards increasing adoption of the KND. She further opines that fabric/apparel manufacturers, traders, and designers/custom tailors should incorporate consumers' views when making new designs to promote the local industry. This book is a must-read for apparel traders, designers and policy makers in the clothing industry.
