Do you... • Put the needs of others above your own? • Start to panic when someone you love leaves—or threatens to? • Often feel anxious about natural disasters, losing all your money, or getting seriously ill? • Find that no matter how successful you are, you still feel unhappy, unfulfilled, or undeserving?

She's going 120mph in a 65 zone—and if driving even faster could change history, Professor Heather Harris would floor it. She's on a collision course with Sergeant Brian Daniels, a state trooper determined to slam the brakes on his own heartache. In one short year, Heather Harris has lost it all: her family, her fiancé, her home, her job. Everything but her pride—and her unmistakable purple muscle car. Summer break at the lake cottage she inherited from her grandparents should provide the solitude and reflection she craves, but she soon finds that no matter where she goes, there he is—the state trooper whose passion for fast cars won't stop him from enforcing the speed limit. Brian Daniels embraces his small-town, slow-paced, lakeside life. After years of heartbreak at the hands of his first love, he’s finally free. A gorgeous brunette—fast-driving and karaoke-singing—physics professor offers an exciting diversion. Opposites attract, but the sudden appearance of a blonde on a Harley threatens to throw a monkey wrench in the works. Will the promise of the future be stronger than the pull of the ghosts from his past?
Transcendence and Immanence in the Works of Virginia Woolf and Iris Murdoch
Author: Donna J. Lazenby
Publisher: A&C Black
Revealing, in an original and provocative study, the mystical contents of the works of famous atheists Virginia Woolf and Iris Murdoch, Donna Lazenby shows how these thinkers' refusal to construe worldviews on available reductive models brought them to offer radically alternative pictures of life which maintain its mysteriousness, and promote a mystical way of knowing. A Mystical Philosophy contributes to the contemporary resurgence of interest in Spirituality, but from an entirely new direction. This book provides a warning against reductive scientific and philosophical models that impoverish our understanding of ourselves and the world, and a powerful endorsement of ways of knowing that give art, and a restored concept of contemplation, their consummative place.
