Having moved to the hustle and bustle of London from Jamaica, Gloria Ifill found her initial attempt to settle into British life quite an experience – equating the overwhelming cultural differences and dramatic change in weather to leaving Earth and moving to Mars. Providing readers with an authentic insight into growing up in Jamaica in the 40s and 50s, Gloria shares her experiences of the rigorous importance of discipline and respect at home and at school, and the ramifications of not adhering to the rules. Having moved to London in the 1960s, Gloria attended Lewisham College, taking part in late evening sessions to study English, typing and shorthand, before going on to marry and have three children. Echoes of the Past details the rich history of how life was compared to how it is now, which will put a smile on the face of anyone who looks back at Britain with fond memories. This book will appeal to readers interested in the life of a Jamaican family in 1960s London, as well as those who have emigrated themselves or are interested in doing so.

She would walk for three days and then would give up because on day four it rained. She would purchase a stationary bike and then use it as a clothes rack. And she continued to watch her weight climb to over 200 pounds. But still she did nothing. Then one day her doctor told her she had to get healthy, that if she did not start taking care of her weight, if she did not become serious about her cholesterol levels, she could develop diabetes. This knowledge scared her to finally make the conscious decision to get healthy. She did not make her goal weight, but she came close. She did lose 50 pounds. It was the longest 13 months of her life.

I mention in the book some of the people I met, and I share their stories with my readers. I talk about even though people were concerned about the two wars and a downhill economy, their relationships with their partners was also very important. I talk about how I was asked numerous times how my husband allowed me to be on the road for so many months by myself. I talk about how I entered a female homeless shelter. I point out that I worked two jobs to get back on the campaign trail. I talk about how my husbands love and support encouraged me as I travelled on my journey by myself. I also talk about what made our relationship so strong after taking this 18 month road trip.

This book is a must read for all God-believing, Bible-believing, pastors who are retiring or leaving their position for any reason. It is also a must-read book by all readers who are searching for a Christian church led by a God-fearing Bible-believing pastor. In addition, the book will educate families so that they can have ideas of what to do when the family is voodooed. The book tells all the tricks and techniques that are used by pastors that are pretenders and are devil worshippers, not godly pastors. Yes, I mean some pastors are not really pastors, and they do not believe in our Mighty Father God! Their goal is to destroy the churches, so they move from church to church to accomplish their evil mission. This book will prepare you with many tricks that are played to God’s children. After reading this book, you will thank God, and you will become strong in faith. You will realize God is the only way and is stronger than any devil. However, as Christians, we must be prepared. You do not want to be caught off guard! This is what makes the devil happy because many people (Christians) never expected such tricks and had never seen neither expected such tricks, just because they believe the devil cannot tempt them because they are born again! I have given many true examples to help you understand how the enemy works. This can be very difficult for Christians who have lived a clean life all their life until they are tested. This book will help to make your faith stronger and be able to fight the evil one if you meet a voodoo pastor at a church or other voodoo people outside the church. This book will also help non-Christians to understand the way of our mighty God is the best way and no other way. God’s grace and peace to all who will be reading this book! The devil does not want you to read this book, but I wish you all the best, and let us be strong with God so that when in this world we are tested like Job, our Mighty Father can give us wisdom and strength in faith to fight the devil! I have had some people or some pastors say, the devil cannot attack born-again Christians. This is not true. Satan has no boundaries on the earth; he is in all countries of this world. His goal is to attack and corrupt Christians who are not strong in their faith. In summary, I pray that this book will help make your faith in God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) stronger!

Little Artie Shawcross bullied classmates, insulted teachers, started fires, tortured animals, and roved the woods of New York's hardscrabble North Country with imaginary friends, talking in a high squawk. He also scored top grades, excelled in sports and shared his money and toys with the children who ridiculed him. From the second grade on, he was subjected to psychiatric examination, regularly confounding the experts. Years later, while serving in Vietnam, Arthur John Shawcross wrote bloodcurdling letters about his battlefield ordeals, then returned to Watertown to commit a string of arsons and burglaries. He served two years in prison, was paroled to his respectable parents - and murdered a boy and a girl. Back in the penitentiary, he proved as enigmatic as ever. Some counselors saw him as a Frankenstein monster, beyond hope, irredeemable. To others he was a troubled young man who could be saved. No two psychiatrists seemed to agree. Shawcross served fifteen years, then conned a parole board into an early release. He settled in Binghamton, but angry citizens learned of his bloody history and ran him out of town. After two smaller communities turned him away, desperate parole authorities finally smuggled the child-killer into Rochester in the dead of night - neglecting to alert the local police. Soon the corpses started turning up, locked in winter ice, covered by reeds in swamps, floating in streams. The homicidal pedophile had changed his M.O., this time murdering diminutive women. As the body count grew, Rochester streets swarmed with police, and still the serial killer managed to snare his tenth victim, then his eleventh. Amazon.com Accounts of more famous serial killers like Ted Bundy or Jeffrey Dahmer may have ghoulish entertainment value, but I agree with writer Darcy O'Brien that this meticulously factual study of child sex-murderer Arthur Shawcross "comes closer to capturing the psychology of a serial killer than anything else I've ever read." The strength of this book (semi-finalist for a 1994 Edgar Award) comes first from the quality of the materials--including first-person interviews with the killer's wives, girlfriends, co-workers, police officers, therapists, and even a prostitute who "played dead" for Shawcross--and second, from Olsen's ability to weave the information into a highly readable story that reveals, above all, the ineffectiveness of our system of rehabilitation and parole. From Publishers Weekly An experienced and skilled writer, Olsen ( Predator ) proves himself equal to the formidable task of studying serial killer Arthur Shawcross. Born in 1945 in upstate New York, Shawcross was perceived as different even in childhood (his classmates dubbed him "Oddie," and elementary school officials called for mental health evaluations). In the early '70s he murdered two children and was sentenced to up to 25 years in prison; he served less than 15 years before he was paroled in 1987. He was difficult to place--townspeople drove him out as soon as his past became known. After three such episodes, parole officials sent him surreptitiously to Rochester, N.Y., where he killed at least 11 prostitutes. He was arrested in 1990 and eventually sentenced to 250 years in prison. During the trial, he claimed that he had been physically and sexually abused by his mother (untrue, the authorities concluded) and that he had committed horrible atrocities in Vietnam (probably untrue). He did not fit the classic pattern of the sociopath, nor did he seem either schizophrenic or paranoid. It remained for psychiatrist Richard Kraus to hypothesize that physiology was the basis for Shawcross's behavior--he diagnosed Shawcross as suffering from a metabolic ailment known as pyroluria and an abnormal genetic constitution. Told by Olsen with contributions from others affected by Shawcross's crimes, the story is a triumph of true-crime writing.

Sharyn Atkinson doesn't claim to have all the answers, but after twelve years of being single in Melbourne, she does have some hilarious—and cringe-worthy—stories to tell. In this light-hearted, playful, and honest account of her romantic experiences, you'll find stories of hope, loss, deception, discovery, sex, and love in all its many forms. Read it cover to cover, or pick a chapter that calls out to you—“Mr. Loaded," "Mr. International Jet Setter," or perhaps the intriguing "Mr. Stripper Electrician.” Though she would love to get married and start a family, Sharyn doesn’t plan to settle for anyone—even if that means navigating the murky waters of dating in your thirties. As she explains, “I don’t want to be someone’s handbag, mother, housemaid, bimbo, friend with benefits, notch on the belt, therapist, ‘bit on the side’, rebound, second wife, ‘cougar’, party girl, provider, or door mat. Call me crazy, but none of that really appeals to me.” Whether you’re single, happily married, or somewhere in between in the dating game, Sharyn’s honest, relatable, and disarming accounts of trying to find “the one” in a vast sea of “not quite” will have you nodding in understanding and considering the various people you’ve decided to make time for—or catch and release.
