  • Devil And Pierre Gernet

    $28.99

    David Bentley Hart – author of The Beauty of the Infinite and The Doors of the Sea – turns his theological imagination to narrative fiction in this collection of four short stories and one novella. Anticipating questions about his shift in genre, Hart writes that “God is no more likely (and a good deal less likely) to be found in theology than in poetry and fiction.” Far from simple allegory, however, these stories beguile and entrance the reader because of Hart’s engrossing, opulent writing style and the deep theological and philosophical questions he raises. Occasionally flabbergasting, often bedazzling, sometimes heartbreaking, and ultimately mesmerizing, these stories are wide ranging in context and scope but united by a common thread of haunting religious and philosophical questions about this life and the next. This powerful collection will engage both the mind and the heart.

  • Blue Umbrella : A Novel

    $14.99

    The life of ten-year-old Zac Sparks changes overnight when his mother is killed by lightning. He’s sent to live in Five Corners with his Aunties, two cruel old hags who obviously don’t like him. It isn’t long before Zac knows something really strange is going on. Five Corners is populated with weird characters-a midget butler, a girl who doesn’t speak, a blind balloon seller, and a mysterious singer who is heard but not seen. Then there’s the Aunties’ father, Dada. Zac’s first encounter with Dada is so terrifying he faints dead away.

    The one bright spot is Sky Porter, the proprietor of the general store across the street, a friendly soul who encourages Zac-when the Aunties aren’t looking-and shows him a kindness that is sadly lacking from his dismal life. But Sky isn’t what he seems either, and when Zac learns Sky’s amazing secret he realizes, to his dismay, that this wonderful man may have a very dark side as well.

    Discovering that Dada is an evil magician who has found a way to live forever, Zac knows many lives are at stake, including his own. With time running out, he must turn to the one person who might be able to help: Sky Porter. Can Zac trust him?

Born in 1867 in a little log cabin on the edge of the Big Woods in Wisconsin, Laura traveled with her family by covered wagon through Kansas, Minnesota, and finally the Dakota Territory, where she met and married Almanzo Wilder. There was deprivation and hard work. Crops were ruined by storms and grasshopper plagues. But there were also happy times of love and laughter, sleigh rides, holiday celebrations, and socials. These nine books, beloved by children for generations, capture the very best of the American pioneer spirit.
