Isabelle Airly’s father is dead by his own hand, after a term in prison for insurance fraud. Her boyfriend of four years has lost his life in a motorcycle accident. And inside, Isabelle is lost at sea, struggling to stay afloat, and wondering how a woman who has lost so much can begin to find herself again. As Isabelle tries to pick up the pieces after the loss of the two men she loved most, she begins to uncover the truth about her father, his arrest, and his descent into madness—as well as the secrets her mother and uncle have kept hidden. Poet and novelist Luke Davies, author of the award-winning international bestseller Candy, charts Isabelle’s course with flowing, lyrical prose and profound emotional honesty. He takes us a journey not only across countries and continents, but through an interior life tempest-tossed by grief, as Isabelle attempts to understand the power of love, the pain of its loss, and the tragedies of her family’s past.
Into a complacent generation God placed Dawson Trotman. Full of contagious zeal, drive, and creativity, Trotman helped awaken those around him and exhorted Christians to single-mindedly obey God. Thousands responded to his challenge of fruitful discipleship. Now his challenge goes to you. The Navigator will motivate you to joyfully obey God more. It will invite you to share in Trotman’s “bifocal vision”: a consuming passion for the salvation of the world and also for the spiritual nurturing of one individual. He once said, “If you care for one, God can give you a burden for the world.” Through the worldwide Christian organization he founded, The Navigators, Trotman helped bring back some forgotten biblical truths: the importance of personal follow-up, one-on-one training, and the multiplication of disciples. Author Robert D. Foster, a longtime Navigator associate, combines his own personal recollections, interviews with those who knew Trotman, and Trotman’s conference messages to portray a man who was unconventional and fun-loving—a strong disciplinarian with a compassionate heart. Let The Navigator help you find what God wants for your life, and then help you wholeheartedly do it!

In this third and final volume of Julia Turk's Navigator's Dream series, the Navigator makes one final voyage into the realm of tarot to ultimately find enlightenment-but it will be much more difficult than a simple turn of the cards for our psychiatrist-turned-philosopher and mystic. In "Seatime," the hero ascends into the Major Arcana of the tarot deck via a sailboat led by the Higher Self of the Navigator, known as Guide. Joined together with a motley crew, the sailboat takes the Navigator and Guide deep within the islands, or Sephiroth, of the Mystic SEA. These are not tropical islands intended for peace and comfort; each island is different than the last, and each carries a mystery that must be unraveled. Although the Navigator has learned much amidst the tarot cards, has the hero learned enough to make it home? Externally, the Navigator has difficulties, but internally there are problems as well; as the riddles unravel, so do the deeply held psychological issues of the Navigator. By the end, the mysteries of the Major Arcana might be solved, but will the Navigator be able to heal the wounds built prior to the tarot adventure?
