A Promise is a Promise ''Promise you won't leave me, will you, Mommy?''.... ''Of course not, I would never leave you, darling, I promise. And a promise is a promise!'' These were the last words that were exchanged between Kaye O'Bara and her 16-yearold daughter, Edwarda, before the vivacious teenager fell into a diabetic coma on January 3, 1970. For more than 30 years, Edwarda has been in a comatose state - and her mother has kept her promise to never leave her beloved daughter! This dedicated parent, now in her 70s, has kept a vigil by her daughter's bedside for more than a quarter of a century, feeding her every two hours and giving her insulin every four hours around the clock, without fail! The strength, power, and tenacity of Kaye O'Bara's incomparable love has attracted miracles, including the spiritual apparition of the Blessed Mother, who is a frequent ''visitor'' to the O'Bara home in Miami, Florida. These events have astounded the community and have inspired intense interest from the media, and they will amaze you - and teach you - as well! This is a phenomenal book about two ordinary people, the miracles that have made their lives extraordinary, and the lessons that you can learn from them. This is a book you will always remember - about a mother and daughter whose bond of love is everlasting!

Promises I Made My Mother

What would my mother say? How would she want me to handle this situation? How can I make this tough decision and stay true to myself? What would my mother say? Sam Haskell still asks himself these questions every day. When Haskell was young, his devoted mother, Mary, instilled in her son the values of character, faith, and honor by setting an example and asking him to promise to live his life according to her lessons. He did, and those promises have served Haskell consistently from his Mississippi boyhood to his long career at the venerable William Morris Agency in Beverly Hills. In this inspiring memoir full of touching stories and amusing anecdotes, Haskell reveals how he kept his pledge to his mother to live a decent life–even in the shark-infested waters of Hollywood, where he handled the hottest stars and packaged the highest-rated shows–by refusing to become the cliché of an amoral agent. Here is Haskell as a child in Amory, Mississippi (pop. 7,000), discovering the power of hope as he waits for an unlikely visit from the “Cheer Man” (a representative of the detergent company who gave ten dollars to anyone using the brand), learning humility after pursuing an eighth-grade “Good Citizenship” award he cockily assumed he’d win, confronting the complications of human character when a near-fatal car crash exposed his judgmental father’s true nature. Years later, in Hollywood, Haskell would rely on his mother’s teachings–honesty, self-reliance, and belief in God–as he swiftly rose from the William Morris mailroom to eventually become the company’s Worldwide Head of Television. His capacity for friendship and his insistence on living his version of the Golden Rule (being “thoughtfully political”) allowed him to handle various client crises and the tense negotiations that nearly scuttled the last years of Everybody Loves Raymond and the entire existence of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Haskell has achieved success through self-respect, and from his story we learn how we, too, can maintain our dignity when faced with life’s challenges. This stirring memoir is a testament to mothers everywhere who instill in their sons the lasting values they need to become good men and devoted fathers. From the Hardcover edition.

Bestsellerautor Linwood Barclay ("Ohne ein Wort") ist zurück! "Lügennest" bildet den Auftakt seiner neuen "Promise Falls"-Trilogie: Drei Thriller, die sich mit den Abgründen einer amerikanischen Kleinstadt beschäftigen, deren Mitbewohner auch nicht vor Mord zurückschrecken... Für Promise Falls sieht es düster aus. In der Kleinstadt an der US-Ostküste gibt es kaum Perspektiven – und vor allem keine Jobs. Auch die Zeitung von Reporter David Harwood ist pleite, trotzdem steckt er seine Nase weiterhin in Sachen, die ihm merkwürdig vorkommen. Wie zum Beispiel in diese Geschichte mit dem Baby. Seine Cousine Marla schwört, ein Engel habe es ihr gegeben. Aber es sieht eher so aus, als hinge alles mit einem brutalen Mord am anderen Ende der Stadt zusammen. Und das ist nicht der einzige Abgrund, der sich in Promise Falls auftut. Linwood Barclay ist "ein wahrer Spannungsmeister." Stephen King
