As World War II draws to a close, can two young people find love, hope--and freedom? February 1942: Terrifying reports of the Wehrmacht's advance across the Soviet Union spread like wildfire, striking new fear into the already oppressed German families living there. Harri Pfeiffer, now sixteen, is summoned to the forced labour camp in Chelyabinsk. With men around him dying by the hundreds, every day is a fight for survival in a world plagued with despair. Three years later, with the war finally over, Yvo Scholz arrives in Chelyabinsk, desperate for news of her brother, who was also last seen being dispatched to the labour camp. Still uncertain of the fate of her father, it takes all Yvo's unshakeable courage to build a new life for herself while she waits for hope to return. When their paths intersect, Harri and Yvo find a connection they never thought possible. But faced with hostility and discrimination, do they dare to dream they will one day be free--together?

Dark times now lives. Lurking in the shadows. Trapped in poesy's leaves. Darts of fearful bows. Shielded by light's ray. Now let's begin to prey. We must prepare for the worst times, as the curtain of this age falls, moral decay, pandemics, rape, racism and the degradation of our beloved planet earth. This is a call for awareness. This may be the end time prophesied in the Bible, as all this chaotic happenings around the world is similar to the description of the end time as prophesied in the book of revelation. It’s a dawning of a new era of evil nonetheless light must triumph over darkness.

Life is not always easy. In this life, we all suffer. We all hurt. We all mourn. We all feel pain. On the Wings of Hope is a collection of poems and devotions to remind us we are not alone. It is a book for those who are enduring some sort of trial, whether they are being abused, suffering the loss of a loved one, or simply feeling unloved. As someone who has experienced all of those things, author Toni Blea-Torres seeks to offer readers some hope and encouragement, reminding them that they can find comfort in God, our Father. As a child, Toni was the victim of sexual abuse. Later, as an adult, she suffered terrible physical, mental, verbal, and emotional abuse at the hands of her first husband. Then, when her parents passed away within a few years of each other, the emotions were compounded, and she felt completely lost. Writing became a cathartic release for her, a means to a new life. Friends found the work inspiring and encouraged her to use the writings as a sort of devotional. Others will be blessed by the topics she covers in her book, including family, friends, and faith. Toni Blea-Torres lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico. On the Wings of Hope is her first book.

We live in an imperfect world. I am flawed, you are flawed. My book is not perfect. If you are looking for perfection, you will not find it in these pages. I didn’t pay to have this book edited. I want you to feel rather than look at grammar errors. I want my words to penetrate your soul, to experience my sorrow, laughter, hope, and love. This book is about a dream that was planted in my spirit almost 15 years ago. I did not know the trials that were required to give hope to others on their life journey. For many years, I hid behind a mask of illusion, hiding my childhood trauma and pain. I was a people pleaser. My heart had good intentions, but my spirit was broken, damaged, and I did not know how to fix myself. I pursued my educational goals, received my master’s in Autism, suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury, and experienced the suicide of my student in the Sparks Middle School Shooting. This is a true story of struggle, pain, hope, love, brain injury, defeat, unanswered questions, and victory. This book reveals my “Silent Shaking” and how I healed.

...if what around you is real, Your life is clear, And your path of decisions Shall never be off course... -Jonathan Gabriel Raskas, 2.22.2016 "Infinito 22 is a bold and courageous journey, author Jonathan Raskas has bravely shared with us, the reader. It is the journey of a father, living in his finite life as he crashes into his 'infinite realm.' Few of us will ever experience the profound depth of the loss of a child. Nor would we ever imagine the infinite breathe it may create. Infinito 22, where the "finite box" of one's life's story resides in ones 'infinite' legacy, is as beautiful as the man who wrote it, the children he raised and the son he lost." -Dr. Phil Dembo, author of The Real Purpose of Parenting: The Book You Wish Your Parents Read
