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!

Imagine a set of simple principles that could help you to understand how parts combine to become a whole, and how each part sees the whole from its own perspective. If such principles were any good, it shouldn’t matter whether we’re talking about humans on a team, birds in a flock, computers in a datacenter, or cogs in a Swiss watch. A theory of cooperation ought to be pretty universal, so we should be able to apply it both to technology and to the workplace. Such principles are the subject of Promise Theory, and the focus of this insightful book. The goal of Promise Theory is to reveal the behavior of a whole from the sum of its parts, taking the point of the parts rather than the whole. In other words, it is a bottom-up, constructionist view of the world. Start Thinking in Promises and find out why this discipline works for documenting system behaviors from the bottom-up.

From the author of The Personal History of Rachel DuPree (soon to be a major motion picture)! “This second engaging novel from Weisgarber . . . has shades of Willa Cather, Sinclair Lewis, and Conrad Richter.”— Publishers Weekly, starred review Young pianist Catherine Wainwright flees the fashionable town of Dayton, Ohio, in the wake of a terrible scandal. Heartbroken and facing destitution, she finds herself striking up correspondence with a childhood admirer, the recently widowed Oscar Williams. In desperation, she agrees to marry him, but when Catherine travels to Oscar’s farm on Galveston Island, Texas—a thousand miles from home—she finds she is little prepared for the life that awaits her. The island is remote, the weather sweltering, and Oscar’s little boy Andre is grieving hard for his lost mother. And though Oscar tries to please his new wife, the secrets of the past sit uncomfortably between them. Meanwhile, for Nan Ogden, Oscar’s housekeeper, Catherine’s sudden arrival has come as a great shock. For not only did she promise Oscar’s first wife that she would be the one to take care of little Andre, but she has feelings for Oscar that she is struggling to suppress. And when the worst storm in a generation descends, the women will find themselves tested as never before. The Promise, now available in paperback, received rave reviews from critics and captured the hearts of readers worldwide. Against the backdrop of the devastating Galveston hurricane of 1900, Ann Weisgarber tells a heartbreaking story with two unforgettable voices. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction—novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more.
