Faced with losing her mother at the tender age of twelve, being subjected to interminable abuse from an unloving stepmother and migrating between homes, Janice’s mother knew too well what suffering was. Despite the severe lack, deprivation and desolation that Janice’s mom was experiencing in later years—and not having a stable home in which to leave her children—she preferred to stay in Jamaica and struggle to personally care for them than to take up an offer to join her cousin Olivianna in England. Janice knew the decision that her mom had made could not have been easy but was made out of pure love. From that day, young Janice purposed in her heart that she would use all the physical and mental energy she could muster to pull her mother out of a life of poverty. After leaving high school, she knew it was time for a strong action, so she ventured into unfamiliar territory to accomplish her goal. The Eagle Stays on Top illustrates the bitter and heartrending challenges faced by Janice and her family. By the time her mom was taken away from her life in 2008, she had gotten the wish she had asked God for—to make her Mama proud. This book will show you: How you can triumph over difficult odds and brush yourself off after you have been tossed about by life’s challenges, and How you can fight to re-grow your wings and soar like an eagle

The young woman watched me like a cat watches a rat he is going to catch for his dinner. As I walked up the stairs to let myself in the building she jumped in front of me. She pressed her face close to my ear. I could feel and smell her hot stinking breath as she whispered menacingly into my ear, “Open this goddamned door quick bitch. You better not scream or I will run this knife right through your side.” I fumbled in my purse for my key. I tried to keep as still as possible because I could feel the knife pricking my skin every time I moved. I finally found the key and my hand was trembling so badly that I could barely turn the lock. “You better hurry up bitch if you don’t want to die.” Once I got the door opened the woman pushed me to the floor. She went straight to the cabinets and rambled through the vaccine bottles and other medicines that had been set aside for the research project. “You better not try anything.” she yelled, while she rambled through the cabinets, She cursed and threw bottles on the floor as she pillaged through every cabinet in the office. She finally found what she was looking for. She headed towards the door, turned back, came to where I was lying on the floor, leaned close to me and yelled in my face, “You better not call the sheriff bitch, or I will come back, find you, and kill your fuckin ass.”

The revelatory memoir of Lezley McSpadden—the mother of Michael Brown, the African-American teenager killed by the police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9, 2014—sheds light on one of the landmark events in recent history. “I wasn’t there when Mike Mike was shot. I didn’t see him fall or take his last breath, but as his mother, I do know one thing better than anyone, and that’s how to tell my son’s story, and the journey we shared together as mother and son." —Lezley McSpadden When Michael Orlandus Darrion Brown was born, he was adored and doted on by his aunts, uncles, grandparents, his father, and most of all by his sixteen-year-old mother, who nicknamed him Mike Mike. McSpadden never imagined that her son’s name would inspire the resounding chants of protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, and ignite the global conversation about the disparities in the American policing system. In Tell the Truth & Shame the Devil, McSpadden picks up the pieces of the tragedy that shook her life and the country to their core and reveals the unforgettable story of her life, her son, and their truth. Tell the Truth & Shame the Devil is a riveting family memoir about the journey of a young woman, triumphing over insurmountable obstacles, and learning to become a good mother. With brutal honesty, McSpadden brings us inside her experiences being raised by a hardworking, single mother; her pregnancy at age fifteen and the painful subsequent decision to drop out of school to support her son; how she survived domestic abuse; and her unwavering commitment to raising four strong and healthy children, even if it meant doing so on her own. McSpadden writes passionately about the hours, days, and months after her son was shot to death by Officer Darren Wilson, recounting her time on the ground with peaceful protestors, how she was treated by police and city officials, and how she felt in the gut-wrenching moment when the grand jury announced it would not indict the man who had killed her son. After the system failed to deliver justice to Michael Brown, McSpadden and thousands of others across America took it upon themselves to carry on his legacy in the fight against injustice and racism. Tell the Truth & Shame the Devil is a portrait of our time, an urgent call to action, and a moving testament to the undying bond between mothers and sons.

A dazzling first novel about four generations of fear and longing in the deep South "Who're your people, girl?" It's the song of the South, the big question, persistent and unforgiving. Helene Strickland, daughter of Lafayette County, Arkansas, and lately of the Northeast, doesn't have an answer. Instead, she has memories riddled with half-truths, stories heard in fits and starts, a family history from a family that doesn't know its own past. In the steamy August of 1976, Helene returns home for her aunt's funeral determined to learn the truth, but her probing yields more questions than answers: Why did her grandmother, Liberty, a cotton picker turned saloon owner, have no name until she was fourteen? Why does Queen Ester, Helene's mother, dress like a child, talk to no one, and refuse to see her own daughter? And who was Chess, a man with a terror of water, a man like a honey trap who drew the women and then destroyed them? In a mesmerizing narrative, April Reynolds seamlessly weaves past and present, intricate flashbacks and interlaced stories to produce an epic novel of one family maimed by the deepest wounds of history. Rich with legend, poetry, and historic events, Knee-Deep in Wonder captures the complex humanity of black Southern life.

The book, Alfie and Papa’s Other Boys, is the fourth in a series which began with ‘Alfie’s Story, Little Boy Growing Up.’ After that the exciting story of ‘Alfie and the Moonshiners.’ Next came ‘And the Rest of Alfie’s Story.’ I really thought that was the rest of the story. It wasn’t. Now we have these tales, beginning with Papa’s Missing Toe, and ending with ‘Tis a Mark of Distinction. There is not a dull moment in between these two fascinating pictures of Papa’s role in the lives of his four boys. Willie is the oldest, the “ring leader” in all their mischief, and the embodiment of primogeniture because Margaret died. There is Cliff. Gran’ma characterized him when she said “Give that boy a wheel and he will roll it off the edge of the world.” And Junior is Alfie’s nemesis; he is just enough bigger than Alfie to taunt him, and not bigger enough to control him. Lastly, there is Alfie, the Baby, impulsive, irrepressible and curious beyond belief. But always the Baby until the arrival of Jody, ten years late for this book of Alfie tales.

Are you truly willing to risk everything? In Believing Jesus, Bible teacher and author Lisa Harper retraces the steps of the apostles in the book of Acts, while throwing in a few of her own crazy adventures along the way. The disciples didn’t have much of a road map after Jesus ascended to heaven, but God’s grace and spirit filled in the gaps as they moved forward. It required their willingness to risk everything to establish a new community that would change the future world. As a regular speaker on the Women of Faith® tour, Lisa has earned a reputation as a true theological scholar and hilarious storyteller—not necessarily in that order! Best-selling author and pastor Max Lucado calls Lisa one of the “best Bible tour guides around.” Believing Jesus will highlight both of Lisa’s strengths as she tackles every chapter of the Book of Acts with biblical wisdom and modern wit. Lisa keeps it real, telling stories on herself and pointing readers back to Jesus, the only one who can truly lead.
