Download The Passion Of Hubert book, When Hubert Lamb and his wife Felicia retire to Florida, they think they've found their own private paradise-until an act of God leaves a body floating face down in Hubert's swimming pool. The dead man is a dead ringer for Jesus, so perhaps it's not surprising when Hubert acquires a halo and "miracles" begin to occur, thanks to the water in his pool. Soon Hubert must contend with faith healings and a megachurch led by the charismatic Pastor Brad Light, the arrival of a pregnant fifteen-year-old runaway named Genie, and the glare of worldwide publicity, all while struggling with the shock and grief of a personal tragedy. Yet as Hubert moves through the stages of his personal passion, he isn't alone. Among those who come to his rescue are his sister- and brother-in-law, Patty and Buck, and a savvy entertainment lawyer, Mitch Miransky. There's also a voice that might-or might not-be all in Hubert's head. Will Hubert survive the assaults on his privacy and reputation and hold onto his identity, or should he remake himself to fit the spotlight and seize the opportunity to become a celebrity? How will he uncover the truth about his pool and make peace with his own long-dormant beliefs when everyone is telling-and selling-a different story? It's all a bit much, especially for a man who knows in his heart he's never been special in any way. How do you make sense of reality when miracles are happening in your own backyard?

And he is also a genius. The story of how a glove-maker from Warwickshire became the greatest writer of them all is vaguely known to most of us, but it would take an exceptional modern novelist to bring him to life. And now at last Jude Morgan, acclaimed author of Passion and The Taste of Sorrow, has taken Shakespeare's life, and created a masterpiece.
by Arliss Ryan, The Kingsley House Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Kingsley House book, A classic American novel inspired by a real house In 1843, newlyweds Nathan and Mary Kingsley envisioned a good life in their new house in the pioneer community of Livonia, Michigan. Then a runaway slave on the Underground Railroad takes refuge in their cellar, and Mary must make a desperate attempt to save her wounded husband and the slave from hunters who are pursuing them. Drawing on her own family history, Arliss Ryan has written a richly imagined story of five generations-from Nathan's son Horace, a born schemer who is all too ready to sacrifice his birthright; to Emma, who helps sustain the family through a heartbreaking diphtheria epidemic; to Nathan's great-great granddaughter Laura, who falls in love with a daredevil pilot. By the time the wilderness where Nathan built his home has grown into a suburb of Detroit, the Kingsley House has seen wicked deeds, a summer of lost childhood, a suicide, and a chance to fall in love a second time. Arliss Ryan vividly brings over one hundred years of American history to life through the unforgettable story of a simple family house and the generations whose lives passed within its walls. The real Kingsley House is preserved in Greenmead Historical Village.
