The King and Mrs. Simpson: The True Story of the Commoner Who Captured the Heart of a King

by Erin Schulz

In December of 1936, King Edward VIII of Great Britain shocked the world by giving up his kingdom in order to marry a twice-divorced American commoner named Wallis Simpson. “The King and Mrs. Simpson” recounts, in a novella-sized work, the extraordinary love story between the popular king and the enigmatic woman that began at a party in England and culminated with the downfall of his reign nearly six years later.

“â?¦the approach treats them like a story out of a romance novel, choosing the avenue of creative nonfiction and using it well.” -The Midwest Book Review

“All the elements of scandal, intrigue, and social criticism, and demands of any monarchy are found in this highly readable book.” -The Clinton Daily News

“This is a must read for those who don’t like to plow through the tomes of history, yet want to know the story.” -The Lakeland Times

“A lovely story of an extraordinary woman! The use of contemporary sources adds authenticity to an ordeal that could be overwhelming in its grimness were it not described so vividly and poetically.” â??Dorey Schmidt, Ph.D.

Dorothy Kinney had found herself in remote India in 1928, a medical missionary charged with building up a hospital for the women and children of Assam. The fledgling doctor began her practice in Gauhati, where her surgeries were performed by the light of a kerosene lamp in an open-air clinic with no electricity, no running water, and no sewer system. She left it ten years later a fully functioning modern hospital, with running water, electricity, and the complete devotion of the people of Assam.

It was there she fell in love.

Pregnant with their second child, Dorothy, her missionary husband Fred Chambers, and their daughter Carol Joy, set out on a voyage that would take them to their new missionary post in Iloilo, on the Philippine island of Panay. One day later War was declared in Europe.

She could not know that by the time her unborn baby turned eighteen months old her little family would be swept into a Japanese internment camp. With four thousand other prisoners of war she struggled to feed her little family in the prison at Santo Tomas, a place where hundreds died and most starved. Had General MacArthur’s bold rescue not liberated them, the entire camp would have been lost.

Many remember Dorothy Chambers in her white coat of courage, doctoring the children of the camp, never knowing that her little family would come within just twenty-four hours of execution.

This is her story.

Eckhart Tolle: His Life & Quest For The Power Of Now: (The Unauthorized Biography of a Modern Mystic) (The Secret of Now Book 8)

by A.J. Parr

IN SEARCH OF ECKHART TOLLE’S LOST YEARS: This unauthorized biography of Eckhart Tolle, the celebrated author of “The Power of Now”, “A New Earth”, and “Stillness Speaks”, among other works, presents a series of known â??and not-so-knownâ?? facts about his early life, his spiritual awakening, and his long and winding quest to understand the inner transformation he experienced as a young man.
It is the result of several years of research and mainly concentrates on the period before he became the best-selling author and world-famous spiritual teacher he is presently known for.
As most people know, Eckhart Tolle was twenty-nine when he experienced the sudden awakening that triggered his avid journey into spiritualism, prior to which he had suffered from severe anxiety attacks and suicidal depression ever since his early childhood. However, a vast number of persons still ignore that it took him around a decade to truly understand the event that triggered his personal transformation, plus another ten years to finally write and publish his first book, The Power of Now.
Truth is, at first he was clueless about what had actually occurred to him on the night of his he “awakened,” as he later confessed in an Oprah Winfrey interview published in O Magazine:
“I didn’t really understand the processâ?¦ All I knew was I was so peaceful. Where did it come from? That was all I knew. It took me years to understand the process behind it.”
And, when interviewed by John W. Parker for his book Dialogues With Emerging Spiritual Teachers he added:
“I knew, of course, that something profoundly significant had happened to me, but I didn’t understand it at all.
“It wasn’t until several years later, after I had read spiritual texts and spent time with spiritual teachers, that I realized that what everybody was looking for had already happened to me.”
What exactly took place during those twenty years? Who were the spiritual teachers he spent time with and who else influenced him back then? When did he familiarize himself with the texts of Jesus, Buddha, Lao-Tzu, Meister Eckhart, Krishnamurti, Ramana Maharshi, and A Course in Miracles? How did he end up becoming a spiritual leader and bestselling author? And why is there so little information about most of his “lost years”?
Discover the answers now and witness the rising path of this modern mystic, whose message still resonates worldwide, benefiting millions of spiritual seekers around the globe.
