Описание: Orphaned Heidi is sent to live with her grumpy grandfather in the Swiss Alps, although she soon comes to love her mountain home.

Описание: "Love Like Fire" is a timely, inspiring story of a modern-day Mother Teresa who embodies self-sacrifice and love. Amidst her passionate humanitarian work in Mozambique, Heidi Baker s husband contracted cerebral malaria and soon after was diagnosed with dementia, the doctors giving him a death sentence. Heidi and her husband founded IRIS Ministries, a nonprofit Christian ministry. It has expanded to include well drilling, free health clinics that service the poor and sick, feeding programs, primary and secondary schools, and now over five thousand churches in Mozambique and more than ten thousand churches in over twenty nations. The Bakers have been listed among the most influential leaders in world Pentecostalism. Cassandra Soars relays a true story that embodies faith and healing; the joy of community; freedom from oppression, sexism, and poverty; and what love truly looks like."
Crafted from George Hoshida's diary and memoir, as well as letters faithfully exchanged with his wife Tamae, Taken from the Paradise Isle is an intimate account of the anger, resignation, philosophy, optimism, and love with which the Hoshida family endured their separation and incarceration during World War II.
George and Tamae Hoshida and their children were a Japanese American family who lived in Hawai'i. In 1942, George was arrested as a "potentially dangerous alien" and interned in a series of camps over the next two years. Meanwhile, forced to leave her handicapped eldest daughter behind in a nursing home in Hawai'i, Tamae and three daughters, including a newborn, were incarcerated at the Jerome Relocation Center in Arkansas. George and Tamae regularly exchanged letters during this time, and George maintained a diary including personal thoughts, watercolors, and sketches. In Taken from the Paradise Isle these sources are bolstered by extensive archival documents and editor Heidi Kim's historical contextualization, providing a new and important perspective on the tragedy of the incarceration as it affected Japanese American families in Hawai'i. This personal narrative of the Japanese American experience adds to the growing testimony of memoirs and oral histories that illuminate the emotional, psychological, physical, and economic toll suffered by Nikkei as the result of the violation of their civil rights during World War II.
