Welcome to Wishful, California, where the air is mountain clean, the people are small-town friendly and the wide-open spaces are perfect for a woman wanting to reinvent herself. THE WAITING IS THE HARDEST PART There was a time when Dr. Emma Sinclair wanted to challenge herself, sharpen her medical skills by plunging into the relentless pace of a New York City ER. But she was younger then. Now she’s not that much older, but at least she’s wise enough to jump at the chance to run her father’s clinic for a summer in the Sierra Nevadas. Here she treats bee stings, stomach flu, and the occasional pet cat. She also contends with patients like Stone Wilder, laid-back and well-aware of his good looks—and irritating beyond belief. The man laughs at her. And Emma loathes him. Partly because she can’t resist his smile and the gleam in his eyes . . . As co-owner of Wilder Adventures and Expeditions, Stone knows when he sees a fish out of water. He also knows how to put it back in the water. When he tries to help Emma loosen up a bit, he pictures white-water rafting or scenic mountain hikes. He never bargained for a much more intimate encounter. Still, Emma’s sure she has no place in a town like Wishful, but Stone knows different. Emma belongs here—in this town, in his life. Convincing her is a challenge he was born to take . . . “Jill Shalvis sweeps you away.” —Cherry Adair

Weather in San Antonio can be anywhere from nasty to fantastic, but this day was better than fantastic as Johnny Devreau walked toward the cattle barns. The weather reminded him of some nice days he had seen in Hawaii, only cooler. He was at the Joe Freeman Coliseum for the San Antonio Livestock Show and Rodeo, an annual ten-day affair. It seemed everyone, male and female, young and old, was wearing the same thingLevis, cowboy boots, and a western-style shirtand most had a western-style hat. This was standard everyday wear for Devreau. The Saturday rodeo matinee was just over, and the standing room crowd was spilling out of the coliseum in every which direction, or so it seemed. It made getting to where Devreau wanted to be slowgoing.
"No work in modern literature, with the possible exception of Uncle Tom's Cabin, can compete with What Is to Be Done? in its effect on human lives and its power to make history. For Chernyshevsky's novel, far more than Marx's Capital, supplied the emotional dynamic that eventually went to make the Russian Revolution."—Joseph Frank, The Southern Review Almost from the moment of its publication in 1863, Nikolai Chernyshevsky's novel, What Is to Be Done?, had a profound impact on the course of Russian literature and politics. The idealized image it offered of dedicated and self-sacrificing intellectuals transforming society by means of scientific knowledge served as a model of inspiration for Russia's revolutionary intelligentsia. On the one hand, the novel's condemnation of moderate reform helped to bring about the irrevocable break between radical intellectuals and liberal reformers; on the other, Chernyshevsky's socialist vision polarized conservatives' opposition to institutional reform. Lenin himself called Chernyshevsky "the greatest and most talented representative of socialism before Marx"; and the controversy surrounding What Is to Be Done? exacerbated the conflicts that eventually led to the Russian Revolution. Michael R. Katz's readable and compelling translation is now the definitive unabridged English-language version, brilliantly capturing the extraordinary qualities of the original. William G. Wagner has provided full annotations to Chernyshevsky's allusions and references and to the, sources of his ideas, and has appended a critical bibliography. An introduction by Katz and Wagner places the novel in the context of nineteenth-century Russian social, political, and intellectual history and literature, and explores its importance for several generations of Russian radicals.
Now That You Are Awake, the sequel to Living Your Life in Joy, is the second book in a three-part series. It is an extension, as well as an expansion, of material introduced in Living Your Life in Joy. Throughout the second book, we shall develop a more comprehensive understanding of not only the process of awakening but also the practical application of what we have learned to all aspects of our daily lives as we journey the path to Oneness. Now That You Are Awake explores, in detail, what it means to be spiritually awake, how we know that we are awake, and how our lives are changed by our awakening. We further expand upon the subject of spiritual awakening as we discuss what it means to view the world through spiritual eyes, how we become a reflection in the mirror of a world within, and who we are as spiritual beings created in the image and likeness of God. Through our discussions, we come to understand, in a heightened and more expansive manner, who we are, why we are, and what we came here to do. We discuss, in depth, the nature, attributes, and the Oneness of the Divine as the One Energy, One Love, One Life. We discover our unlimited potential as individual expressions of the One, in physical form, and how we can awaken to develop and expand our ability to utilize Universal Life Force Energy for the health and well-being of ourselves and others. As we spiritually mature, we come to understand the advanced aspects of spiritual expression that we awaken to. They are referred to throughout our discussions as “feeling” and “knowing.” We discuss in depth how these can be important forms of inspiration and guidance. In the final chapter, we follow two individuals—one spiritually awake, the other spiritually asleep—as they go through one day in their respective lives to contrast the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors each expresses as they respond to the same circumstances and events that occur during the day. By comparing each one’s experience, as perceived and expressed through the ego or the spirit, we may not only summarize the basic understanding we have gained from the topics we discuss in each chapter of the book, but also provide a situation where we can evaluate how we would have responded ourselves to each of the events that take place throughout the course of the day. From this, we may assess each aspect of our own spiritual growth as we continue our journey upon the path to Oneness. At the end of the book, there is a special request for those of you who would be willing to share your awakening story with those who are about to awaken, have just awakened, or who are awake and journeying the path to Oneness. We are planning a series of books, perhaps three in all, with the exclusive theme of spiritual awakening. The purpose of the series is to provide readers with knowledge gained from the firsthand experiences of others who have awakened to help them to understand what is happening to them as they begin to awaken and to let them know that they are not alone. As such, those who choose to awaken would have a compendium, or a guide—namely, the experiences of those who have gone before them—to help them along the way. Now That You Are Awake is a detailed and comprehensive volume that explores the next level of spiritual awareness, consciousness, and knowledge we are awakening to as we continue to spiritually mature.
