  • Ninety-Nine Fire Hoops

    by Allison Hong Merrill
    Allison Hong is not your typical fifteen-year-old Taiwanese girl. Unwilling to bend to the conditioning of her Chinese culture, which demands that women submit to men’s will, she disobeys her father’s demand to stay in their faith tradition, Buddhism, and instead joins the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Then, six years later, she drops out of college to serve a mission—a decision for which her father disowns her. After serving her mission in Taiwan, twenty-two-year-old Allison m... more
  • "Excuse Me; May I Say Something?"

    by Eric Jenard Rodwell
    Is this all there is to personhood? We are born, we live, and we die. What about the ultimate mysteries of life? The Existence of God: Fact or Fake News? Is there the slightest possibility of life beyond death and our accustomed realities? Should we be concerned about a “transcendence” surpassing the normality of our earthly presence? The Holy Bible upholds that conclusion in the affirmative. I assure you; this is far more important than any imagined “Zombie Apocalypse.” Just by chance, if th... more

  • Surviving the Survivors: A Memoir

    by Ruth Klein
    Ruth Klein’s story is about merchants and landowners—aristocratic Polish Jews. It’s about their lives in refugee and concentration camps. About parents who survived the Holocaust but could not overcome the tragedy they had experienced, and about their children, who became indirect victims of the atrocities endured by Holocaust victims. After their liberation, Ruth’s parents were brought to the Displaced Person Camps in Germany, where they awaited departure to the United States. They we... more
  • The Girl from Cairo: A Memoir

    by Peggy Hinaekian
    "For many of us in the disconnected 21st century, it is time to speak about our heritage." This memoir creates a whole world bridging memory and narrative. It has a sense of longevity, no so much in the number of years, but with the depth and range of felt experiences. The writer is an artist who brings to the page an astute eye for the meaning of belonging and identity as she shifts between her many selves. There's a real sense of looking at people in the Middle Eastern world through the lens... more

  • 7 Is Enough

    by Allen Webb
    I wrote this book for two main reasons. First reason is I woke up every day with these stories on my mind. I knew for some reason I needed to write them down. The second reason is for future women. Quite honestly I get tired of telling these stories to strangers because most think there is no way this could happen to one person. I can assure you that all stories contained in this book are true and happened to me. If I am interested in a lady again and she is getting interested in me I will just ... more
