The Well Kept Secret is the story of Haley Stuart. While she and her hilarious twin brother Nelson are vacationing in England, Haley becomes fascinated by a mysterious protrusion at the bottom of an ancient well. Overcome with an unexplainable feeling of nostalgia and belonging, and before Nelson can react, through time and space Haley swan dives down the well and into a compelling adventure that puts into play an enormous medieval treasure, a dangerous stalker, the possibility of her first romance, and what may be a prophecy of unspeakable importance. The ancient book she finds at the bottom of the well begins to reveal to Haley and Nelson, as the one sleepless night of this novel grows long, some very curious and hauntingly familiar characters. And as their mysterious godfather, Professor Flanagan O'Shea, continues to translate the book for them throughout the night, it begins to appear that he may hold some enormously influential position in the United States government. The interplay between the twins and their new medieval friends from a thousand years in the past begin to suggest a possible solution to the murderous threat they are surrounded by as they try to finish the cryptic book by dawn. Haley herself evolves and careens toward a history-altering climax that may save the entire world, in every way. The Well Kept Secret is the first in the Secret Textbook Series.

Do Motorola, Herman Miller, and the Donnelly corporations share a secret of business? Without a doubt, it is the ability to continually change - their "only hope for survival and success" - change based on a participatory management style, often referred to as the Scanlon Plan. By adopting the four principles of the Scanlon Plan - identity, participation, equity, and managerial competence - these corporations have succeeded where others have failed. Changing Forever builds on the forty years of research, experience and development that have gone into the Scanlon Plan. Documenting fully the principles and processes of the Scanlon Plan, Carl Frost gives the reader a clear view of how the plan works and how it can be adapted to suit the needs of businesses, large and small. The conclusions of his research are not surprising: with implementation of the four basic principles of the Scanlon Plan comes an optimal synergistic relationship between all employees and management.

A Secret Well Kept

The Untold Story of Sir Vernon Kell, Founder of MI5

The United Kingdom's domestic counter-intelligence and security agency, most commonly known as MI5, was founded in 1909 by Sir Vernon Kell KBE. Kell ('K' within the agency) not only founded MI5 but was also its Director for 31 years, the longest tenure of any head of a British government department during the twentieth century. Kell was also fluent in six foreign languages, making him arguably the most gifted linguist ever to head a Western intelligence agency. A Secret Well Kept was written by Kell's wife, Constance, in the 1950s, and the manuscript has been a treasured family possession ever since. Constance's story is endlessly fascinating: she tells of their life in China during the Boxer Rebellion, the formation of MI5 in 1909, the key characters, events and spy cases of Kell's career, and his important work achieved for the country during two world wars. A modern-day preface from Kell's great-granddaughter, introduction by Stewart Binns and notes from Dr Chris Northcott add historical context to this delightful and unparalleled insight into the personal life of an extremely powerful and important man.

How many souls have you won to Christ? How many are still walking with the Lord? All, some, a few? The facts are: Evangelical success is at an all-time low. We’re producing more backsliders than true converts. The fall-away rate—from large crusades to local churches—is between 80 to 90 percent. Why are so many unbelievers turning away from the message of the gospel? Doesn’t the Bible tell us how to bring sinners to true repentance? If so, where have we missed it? The answer may surprise you. One hundred years ago, Satan buried the crucial key needed to unlock the unbeliever’s heart. Now Ray Comfort boldly breaks away from modern tradition and calls for a return to biblical evangelism. If you’re experiencing evangelical frustration over lost souls, unrepentant sinners, and backslidden “believers,” then look no further. This radical approach could be the missing dimension needed to win our generation to Christ.

A timely and captivating novel about a mother whose life spirals out of control when she descends into alcoholism, and her battle to get sober and regain custody of her beloved son. Cadence didn’t sit down one night and decide that downing two bottles of wine was a brilliant idea. Her drinking snuck up on her—as a way to sleep, to help her relax after a long day, to relieve some of the stress of the painful divorce that’s left her struggling to make ends meet with her five-year old son, Charlie. It wasn’t always like this. Just a few years ago, Cadence seemed to have it all—a successful husband, an adorable son, and a promising career as a freelance journalist. But with the demise of her marriage, her carefully constructed life begins to spiral out of control. Suddenly she is all alone trying to juggle the demands of work and motherhood. Logically, Cadence knows that she is drinking too much, and every day begins with renewed promises to herself that she will stop. But within a few hours, driven by something she doesn’t understand, she is reaching for the bottle—even when it means not playing with her son because she is too tired, or dropping him off at preschool late, again. And even when one calamitous night it means leaving him alone to pick up more wine at the grocery store. It’s only when her ex-husband shows up at her door to take Charlie away that Cadence realizes her best kept secret has been discovered…. Heartbreaking, haunting, and ultimately life-affirming, Best Kept Secret is more than just the story of Cadence—it’s a story of how the secrets we hold closest are the ones that can most tear us apart.
