            On a wintry day long ago, Renee Morgan walked into the snowy mountains of Lake Tahoe, where she met a man who changed her world forever. Now, nearly half a century later, she must face the facts of who the man was and, ultimately, face the Truth about herself. After the myster...ious death of her husband, Renee's daughters - Brett, Sara and Hadley - become increasingly determined to explore the circumstances of his death, and in doing so tread a dangerous path. If Renee is to protect them, she must evolve in a way she has spent a lifetime avoiding. As they follow the clues, Renee and her daughters come to terms with two Truths, taking each of them on a journey of self-discovery. Renee's discovery blooms in a romance, Sara's through history, Brett's through politics and Hadley's through spirituality, yet they all learn the same two Truths. Truths that can be traced back through time. Truths about who they are, where they come from, and the existence of an extraordinary power.

            The Frontiers of Knowledge: What We Know About Science, History and The Mind

            The Frontiers of Knowledge: What We Know About Science, History and The Mind (Hardback)

            In very recent times humanity has learnt a vast amount about the universe, the past, and itself. But through our remarkable successes in acquiring knowledge we have learned how much we have yet to learn: the science we have, for example, addresses just 5% of the universe; pre-his...tory is still being revealed, with thousands of historical sites yet to be explored; and the new neurosciences of mind and brain are just beginning. What do we know, and how do we know it? What do we now know that we don't know? And what have we learnt about the obstacles to knowing more? In a time of deepening battles over what knowledge and truth mean, these questions matter more than ever. Bestselling polymath and philosopher A. C. Grayling seeks to answer them in three crucial areas at the frontiers of knowledge: science, history, and psychology. In each area he illustrates how each field has advanced to where it is now, from the rise of technology to quantum theory, from the dawn of humanity to debates around national histories, from ancient ideas of the brain to modern theories of the mind. A remarkable history of science, life on earth, and the human mind itself, this is a compelling and fascinating tour de force, written with Grayling's verve, clarity and remarkable breadth of knowledge.
