As war rages in Europe, an eleven-year-old girl is swept into the New York suffragist movement

Eleven-year-old Susan O’Neal is sick of always having to look after her two younger sisters. But ever since their father died, her mother depends on her. To make ends meet, she’s just taken a boarder, an Englishwoman named Beatrice Rutherford, into their Chelsea tenement apartment. Susan and Bea become fast friends, but when Susan finds a folded piece of paper with six cryptic words—must be kept secret for now—she wonders what her new friend is hiding.
Is Bea a spy? Is she trying to involve Susan’s mother in something dangerous? Susan’s fear becomes a reality when her mother vanishes on the day five thousand women from every state in the Union come to New York for a suffrage rally. A riot erupts, and Susan knows something truly momentous has happened. Terrified for her mother’s safety, she begins a search that exposes some hard truths about her city—and their new boarder.
This ebook includes a historical afterword.

For fans of Old Yeller and Shiloh, Where the Red Fern Grows is a beloved classic that captures the powerful bond between man and man’s best friend.
   Billy has long dreamt of owning not one, but two, dogs. So when he’s finally able to save up enough money for two pups to call his own—Old Dan and Little Ann—he’s ecstatic. It doesn’t matter that times are tough; together they’ll roam the hills of the Ozarks.
   Soon Billy and his hounds become the finest hunting team in the valley. Stories of their great achievements spread throughout the region, and the combination of Old Dan’s brawn, Little Ann’s brains, and Billy’s sheer will seems unbeatable. But tragedy awaits these determined hunters—now friends—and Billy learns that hope can grow out of despair, and that the seeds of the future can come from the scars of the past.

God is alive and well and speaks to His people today. He does this primarily through His living Word, the Bible. In Blessed is She: Lessons in Living from Women of the Bible, author Elizabeth McDavid Jones demonstrates to today’s women that God is speaking to us. 
Blessed is She is a book meant to lead women to the Bible, to be an aid in helping us understand how to read and study God’s Word for ourselves, to apply it to our lives and to grow our faith. The intention is that, through this book, every woman may come to know that:
· the Bible is for her
· she can read the Bible and understand it
· the Bible is relevant and applicable to her life here and now
· the women in the Bible were women just like her, who experienced the same heartaches and spiritual trials she experiences
· the faith journey of every woman in the Bible is similar to her own
This devotional Bible study will jumpstart women in their own discovery of Bible truths and life lessons, and even more important, the very heart of God for them. The study features a close-up look at Elizabeth, Mary the mother of Jesus, Mary of Bethany, Martha, and Naomi. Use the devotional pages for personal growth in quiet time with God and individual Bible reflection. For the woman who wants to delve deeper, For More Understanding pages allow a further exploration of what God’s Word teaches about each Bible subject. To enhance group discussion and personal reflection, use the For Deeper Thought questions at the back of the book, or zoom into a more in-depth group focus with the 8-week “Elizabeth” Bible study.
