The harrowing story of the Japanese invasion of New Britain during WWII, as experienced by the few who survived.
After Elizabeth Mehren lost her daughter, she set out to write the book she most needed: one that would offer solace, support, and inspiration. Telling her own story and the stories of other bereaved parents - contemporary and historical - she discovered that this worst grief of all never ends but that if you're open to it, it can transform itself. Above all, it is a journey. After the Darkest Hour is both a guide and a meditation. The author takes us through the process of grieving, from the effects of a child's death on the parents' marriage to what to say when someone asks, "Do you have children?" This book also offers valuable advice for the friends and relatives of bereaved parents.
The Eternal Conflict between the Light and the Dark once again blackens the skies and blights the land. On one side: the Tuatha De Danaan, golden-skinned and beautiful, filled with the might of the angels. On the other: the Fomorii, monstrous devils hellbent on destroying all human existence. In the middle: five Brothers and Sisters of Dragons, determined to use the strange power that binds them to the land in a last, desperate attempt to save the human race.
From the prize-winning screenwriter of The Theory of Everything, this is a cinematic, behind-the-scenes account of a crucial moment which takes us inside the mind of one of the world's greatest leaders - and provides a revisionist, more rounded portrait of his leadership. May, 1940. Britain is at war, European democracies are falling rapidly and the public are unaware of this dangerous new world. Just days after his unlikely succession to Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, faces this horror - and a sceptical King and a party plotting against him. He wonders how he can capture the public mood and does so, magnificently, before leading the country to victory. It is this fascinating period that Anthony McCarten captures in this deeply researched, gripping day-by-day (and often hour-by-hour) narrative. In doing so he revises the familiar view of Churchill - he made himself into the iconic figure we remember and changed the course of history, but through those turbulent and dangerous weeks he was plagued by doubt, and even explored a peace treaty with Nazi Germany. It's a scarier, and more human story, than has ever been told.

All our defining moments have the potential to shift our essence from barely existing to fully living our own lives. But the manner in which we honor our lives and honor the lives of others can ease those life-threating situations, so life can be more rewarding and satisfying. Disappointments and regrets are only the effects of struggling and misunderstanding our own darkest hours.
