The Breath of God: A Novel of Suspense by Jeffrey Small
A murder at the Taj Mahal. A kidnapping in a sacred city. A desperate chase through a cliffside monastery. All in the pursuit of a legend that could link the world’s great religious faiths.
In 1887, a Russian journalist made an explosive discovery in a remote Himalayan monastery only to be condemned and silenced for the heresy he proposed. His discovery vanished shortly thereafter.
Now, graduate student Grant Matthews journeys to the Himalayas in search of this ancient mystery. But Matthews couldn’t have anticipated the conspiracy of zealots who would go to any lengths to prevent him from bringing this secret public. Soon he is in a race to expose a truth that will change the world’s understanding of religion. A truth that his university colleagues believe is mere myth. A truth that will change his life forever—if he survives.
FREE FRIDAYS APPS
Dora ABCs Vol 1: Letters & Letter Sounds
This application is recommended for ages 0-4.
The first in the Nickelodeon Literacy Suite, Dora ABCs Vol 1: Letters & Letter Sounds focuses on your childs emerging literacy skills. In this application, your child will learn the Alphabetic Principle: to recognize letters, write letters and associate letters with sounds. Once children are able to hear and discern sounds (phonemes), they are ready to associate those sounds with letters.
Whats that Dora and Boots see up in the sky? It’s Tico in his Nutty Plane, writing letters and drawing pictures. But he needs you to help him with his ABCs! Pick up all the nuts he needs to power the plane by tracing the letters.
As your child traces the letters, Dora reinforces the sound of each of the letters. Supportive directions and sound effects help guide your child in learning their letters. A new game, Letter and Picture Match, reinforces initial letter sounds by grouping pictures that start with the same sound. A letter select screen allows your child to play any game on any letter they choose.
