Book Summary: In her latest book of supernatural, true-life mystery, Linda Alice Dewey is contacted by a ghost named Jacobs. Jacobs is a runaway slave who was brutally murdered during the Civil War. Using Jacobs's own words, Dewey tells Jacobs's gripping story of being a slave, a fugitive, a vagrant in nineteenth-century America--and his "life" as The Ghost Who Would Not Die. After Jacobs is murdered, his ghost congregates with other ghosts, plays tricks on people, and wanders aimlessly through middle America. Eventually, he begins to help the living by telepathically influencing their thoughts and, ultimately, attaching himself to Dewey and her son. Dewey helps Jacobs to "cross over" and find the peace and freedom that was denied him in life and during the first hundred years after his death. The Ghost Who Would Not Die is a gripping, Civil War–era tale, as well as a well-told, true ghost story that is sure to appeal to readers interested in the supernatural and life after death.

Book Summary: In 1991, as Linda Alice Dewey walked through an abandoned cemetery, she and a companion felt a presence. She returned to that graveyard over the next couple of years, hoping to reach out to that poor being, offering the words: "Whoever is here…my heart is with you.” Little did Linda know that those words would begin her relationship with Aaron Burke, a man who had died nearly 70 years earlier. Aaron followed Linda home that day from the graveyard. As she opened herself to this ghost she learned that he was stuck in a state of limbo, unable to cross over. Aaron had been kidnapped by his father at age four and taken from Ireland to America where he was put to work. Hardened and embittered from his childhood, he did manage to find happiness, only to have it all slip away. Shortly after witnessing his own funeral, Aaron met other ghosts waiting for the time they could finally leave this state of limbo. Yet for decades he could only watch as the people he knew both in life and death crossed over, leaving him behind. Working together to find the closure Aaron needed, he and Linda became friends along the journey. Years after that first meeting and his subsequent crossing, Aaron returned to share the full story of his life--and afterlife--with Linda. This true ghost story gives hope and inspiration to all of us. Aaron shows us that, when seen as the big picture, everything makes sense. Aaron's Crossing sheds light on the mystery of dying, reassuring us that death is never the end of the story!

Book Summary: NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • SELECTED BY THE ECONOMIST AS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR “A rambunctious book that is itself alive with the animal spirits of the marketplace.”—The Wall Street Journal Freedom’s Forge reveals how two extraordinary American businessmen—General Motors automobile magnate William “Big Bill” Knudsen and shipbuilder Henry J. Kaiser—helped corral, cajole, and inspire business leaders across the country to mobilize the “arsenal of democracy” that propelled the Allies to victory in World War II. Drafting top talent from companies like Chrysler, Republic Steel, Boeing, Lockheed, GE, and Frigidaire, Knudsen and Kaiser turned auto plants into aircraft factories and civilian assembly lines into fountains of munitions. In four short years they transformed America’s army from a hollow shell into a truly global force, laying the foundations for the country’s rise as an economic as well as military superpower. Freedom’s Forge vividly re-creates American industry’s finest hour, when the nation’s business elites put aside their pursuit of profits and set about saving the world. Praise for Freedom’s Forge “A rarely told industrial saga, rich with particulars of the growing pains and eventual triumphs of American industry . . . Arthur Herman has set out to right an injustice: the loss, down history’s memory hole, of the epic achievements of American business in helping the United States and its allies win World War II.”—The New York Times Book Review “Magnificent . . . It’s not often that a historian comes up with a fresh approach to an absolutely critical element of the Allied victory in World War II, but Pulitzer finalist Herman . . . has done just that.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “A compulsively readable tribute to ‘the miracle of mass production.’ ”—Publishers Weekly “The production statistics cited by Mr. Herman . . . astound.”—The Economist “[A] fantastic book.”—Forbes “Freedom’s Forge is the story of how the ingenuity and energy of the American private sector was turned loose to equip the finest military force on the face of the earth. In an era of gathering threats and shrinking defense budgets, it is a timely lesson told by one of the great historians of our time.”—Donald Rumsfeld
