A Berlin Love Song
By Sarah Matthias
Max is 14, a German schoolboy, when he first meets Lili, a trapeze artist from a travelling circus that performs every year in Berlin. Lili is a Romani, and her life and customs are very different from those of Max and his family. Torn apart by the outbreak of war they meet again aged 17, when their friendship turns into love – but love between a member of the Hitler youth and a member of the Romani community is forbidden. As events wrench them apart for a second time, can their love survive?
Set against the backdrop of the Second World War, A Berlin Love Song is a love story of passion, unexpected friendship, despair, loss and hope.
Meeting Evil with Mercy
By Philip Pegler
Meeting Evil with Mercy tells the absorbing story of Martin Israel, a Jewish doctor turned Christian priest, who always emphasised the sanctity of life and the sacrament of the present moment. His testimony of mercy is of the greatest value in today’s troubled world, living as it does under the shadow of terrorist outrage, as Christians and other wartime refugees have fled savage persecution of the most appalling kind, giving rise to a migrant crisis in Europe of immense proportions. In the face of such great suffering, hardly ever has there been a greater need for the soothing balm of reconciliation – yet total resolution of any crisis can never come without deep understanding of the true nature of sorrow.
Hidden Beauty of the Commonplace
By Philip Pegler
At a time of austerity and profound concern for human rights, here is a thoughtful book honouring the quiet radiance of love, sanctity of existence and silent background of being. Abiding peace awaits discovery in the midst of our difficulties; it is this simple but potent realisation that entirely changes our world-view and offers genuine hope for the future of humanity.
This work is based upon the life of Clare Cameron, a gifted English mystic and nature poet at the peak of her creative powers during the exuberant decade of the 1960s. Displaying wisdom and compassion, Clare continually challenged her readers with a fundamental question that is as vital and relevant now as it was in her own day – ‘What is the true meaning of freedom?’
This is the story of a group of people – in this case, students in a class of T’ai Chi Ch’uan – who are exploring their psychological and spiritual development as they travel inwardly towards the Taoist Source of wisdom and enlightenment. The story unfolds as if they had all evolved into the ‘we’ of the narrator and links the symbolism in the titles of the T’ai Chi with its physical components. On the way, they encounter many of Nature’s marvels, learn much about the ancient Chinese philosophy of Taoism and its allied philosophies, (both Western and otherwise), and sense within themselves the soul’s search for wisdom. Of the many creatures they meet, it is the Tiger that is the most dominant and, as a symbol of the ego, its attempts to defy spiritual development enable the seeker to attain some degree of spiritual advancement. The Journey is not a treatise on the T’ai Chi itself, but, since psychological significance is given to all its movements, it is unique in the annals of T’ai Chi literature and, being allegorical, can be of interest to all.
