READING: #1 New York Times Bestseller | Named one of the Best Books of the Year by The New York Times • The Washington Post • The Boston Globe • The Seattle Times • Esquire • Time Winner of the Carnegie Medal for Nonfiction | Winner of the NAACP Image Award for Nonfiction | Winner of a Books for a Better Life Award | Finalist for the Los Angeles Book Prize | Finalist for the Kirkus Reviews Prize | An American Library Association Notable Book A powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice—from one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever. Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice. Praise for Just Mercy “Every bit as moving as To Kill a Mockingbird, and in some ways more so . . . a searing indictment of American criminal justice and a stirring testament to the salvation that fighting for the vulnerable sometimes yields.”—David Cole, The New York Review of Books “Searing, moving . . . Bryan Stevenson may, indeed, be America’s Mandela.”—Nicholas Kristof, The New York Times “You don’t have to read too long to start cheering for this man. . . . The message of this book . . . is that evil can be overcome, a difference can be made. Just Mercy will make you upset and it will make you hopeful.”—Ted Conover, The New York Times Book Review “Inspiring . . . a work of style, substance and clarity . . . Stevenson is not only a great lawyer, he’s also a gifted writer and storyteller.”—The Washington Post “As deeply moving, poignant and powerful a book as has been, and maybe ever can be, written about the death penalty.”—The Financial Times “Brilliant.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer “Not since Atticus Finch has a fearless and committed lawyer made such a difference in the American South. Though larger than life, Atticus exists only in fiction. Bryan Stevenson, however, is very much alive and doing God’s work fighting for the poor, the oppressed, the voiceless, the vulnerable, the outcast, and those with no hope. Just Mercy is his inspiring and powerful story.”—John Grisham “Bryan Stevenson is one of my personal heroes, perhaps the most inspiring and influential crusader for justice alive today, and Just Mercy is extraordinary. The stories told within these pages hold the potential to transform what we think we mean when we talk about justice.”—Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow

READING: Bernadette Baker lives through every mother's worst nightmare when her adopted sixteen-year-old daughter, Veronica, is brutally murdered in a shocking and random act of violence. Ten years later the murderer, Raelynn Blackwell, is facing execution for her crime, and despite being united in their grief over Veronica, the Baker family is deeply divided on the subject of the death penalty. On one side is Veronica's deeply spiritual and sensitive brother who believes that the death penalty is the last thing his baby sister would have wanted. On the opposite side is their tough-as-nails older sister who vehemently believes that death is the only way justice will be served. In the center is Bernadette, who is deeply ambivalent and longs for a resolution that will help her family move forward. After Raelynn receives a last-minute stay of execution, a secret is revealed that changes everything and leads to an unlikely bond between Raelynn and Bernadette. Just Mercy is a heart-wrenching and ultimately redemptive family drama of forgiveness, destiny, and the true nature of justice. "This family drama is a must-read that teaches us about the true nature of justice and our very humanity." -Sr. Helen Prejean, C.S.J., author of Dead Man Walking "A stunning achievement...surprising twists and turns as a family, shattered by the heinous killing of their youngest member, must come to terms with life-altering truths." -Hal Zina Bennett, author of bestseller Write From the Heart

В уютной и сонной деревушке Карриво Вианна Мориак прощается с мужем, который уходит воевать с немцами. Она не верит, что нацисты вторгнутся во Францию. Но уже скоро они маршируют мимо ее дома, грохочут вереницы танков, небо едва видать от самолетов, сбрасывающих бомбы. Война пришла в тихую французскую глушь. Перед Вианной стоит выбор: либо пустить на постой немецкого офицера - либо лишиться всего. Возможно, и жизни. Изабель Мориак, мятежная и своенравная восемнадцатилетняя девчонка, полна решимости бороться с захватчиками. Безрассудная и рисковая, она готова на все, но отец вынуждает ее отправиться в деревню к старшей сестре. Угодив с остальными беженцами под немецкую бомбардировку, Изабель встречает посреди хаоса и смерти Гаэтона и влюбляется столь же безрассудно, как делает все в этой жизни. Так начинается ее путь в Сопротивление. Она не оглядывается назад и не жалеет о своих поступках; снова и снова рискуя жизнью, она спасает людей. Каждая из двух сестер, столь непохожих и характером, и судьбой, ведет собственную войну. «Соловей» – эпический роман о войне, жертвах, страданиях и великой любви. Душераздирающе красивый роман, ставший настоящим гимном женской храбрости и силе духа. Роман для всех, роман на всю жизнь. Я влюбилась в «Соловья» Кристин Ханны. Драма из времен Второй мировой войны написана с невероятной страстью. Но больше всего я люблю в этом романе линию отношений двух сестер, которые в мирное время были едва ли не врагами, но война все расставила по местам. Ханна поднимает очень важные вопросы в своем романе. Кто мы в действительности – герои или трусы? Способны ли подниматься, раз за разом терпя поражение? Действительно ли мы преданы тем, кого любим, или же в определенных обстоятельствах способны на предательство? «Соловей» проникает в сердце глубоко-глубоко и остается там навсегда. Выдающаяся книга. Lisa See Две сестры всю жизнь жили как чужие, и начавшаяся война, казалось, развела их еще дальше. Они такие разные, не похожие ничем - ни характером, ни темпераментом, ни принципами, ни идеалами. Но война каждую поставит перед смертельным выбором, и, сделав свой выбор, сестры внезапно поймут, что ближе друг друга у них никого нет. Блистательный роман о войне, любви, предательстве и искуплении. Christina Baker Kline Я проглотила «Соловья» в один присест, всем своим существом переместившись в оккупированную Францию, забыв, кто я и где я на самом деле. Кристин Ханна – настоящий мастер по части семейных историй, полных драматизма и страсти. Эта книга не может не полюбиться. Marilyn Dahl Я начала читать однажды вечером, решив, что прочитаю пару глав, но отложить книгу так и не смогла. Она не только эмоционально не отпускала меня, я не только была захвачена сюжетом и драмами ее героев, но я словно очутилась в том времени, во Франции, где мимо моего дома грохочут танки, где к моим ногам жмется испуганная дочь, где моя сестра бросает безрассудный вызов врагу. Я была внутри книги целиком, всей душой и телом. А когда дочитала, с изумлением огляделась – где я? Какие же сильные, чудесные женщины в этом удивительном романе, с кучей недостатков, но поразительно храбрые и стойкие. Смогла бы я на их месте действовать так же, сумела бы сделать правильный выбор, не отступить, не струсить? Miriam Klein Kassenoff Красиво написанная и щедрая на глубокую историческую достоверность история о сути жизни, любви и войне, о том, сколь различно ведут себя люди в таких ужасных обстоятельствах. Настоящий бестселлер. Sara Gruen

READING: Shortly after, two men stood at the entrance of the apartment, the bullet riddled bodies told a story of horror. Both men were dressed impeccably. One wore a blue pinstripe suit, white shirt, red satin tie, navy blue alligator shoes and a Borsalino that was carefully broken down just right, shadowing his handsome face. His fingers were laced in diamonds and he carried a cane with the head of a lion with jeweled eyes. In front of him came in a slender gentlemen, dress in a black suit and dark shades he was called Decipher. He was the one that made sure the room was clear standing with his back against the opened door gun in hand. The man with the cane walked into the room stepping over dead bodies. He quickly went into the bedroom he removed the recliner that protected the hidden floor compartment. He opened the compartment door and removed the infant she was fine. She smiled up at him and through all that chaos she never made a sound. He pulled her close to his chest and kissed her on the forehead. Before leaving he removed several envelopes from the compartment and money that was stacked in hundred dollar increments. He walked over to Ebony’s body and removed the sterling silver heart locket from her neck. He and the gentlemen left. Sirens echoed from a short distance, the boys in blue were coming it was only two hours later.

READING: Few things are as important as our notions of justice and mercy. Yet how are we to make sense of our moral treatment of the poor given all the political, philosophical, and theological voices? While Christian Scripture is not silent on the matters of social justice and charity, even here our variously conditioned presuppositions cause us significant interference. Only a careful hermeneutical reset can move us beyond our personal and cultural situatedness. This requires a thorough exploration of both interpretative strategies and pertinent scriptural witnesses. So how would the New Testament witness have us treat the materially needy? How do we act justly and love mercy in walking humbly with our God?
