„Als ich herkam“, sagt Florens, die Erzählerin dieses Romans, „war ich, nach meinen Zähnen zu urteilen, sieben oder acht. Seither haben wir achtmal Pflaumenmarmelade gekocht. Also muss ich sechzehn sein.“ Milton, Delaware, 1682: Den Sklavenhandel gibt es noch nicht lange. Jacob Vaark, Farmer und Geldverleiher, nimmt Florens gegen seine Überzeugung von einem Pflanzer in Zahlung für eine nicht einbringbare Schuld. Doch bald stirbt er an den Blattern. Neben Florens bleiben drei Frauen zurück und bilden eine kuriose Familie: Rebekka, Jacobs in England gekaufte Frau, nur nominell die Gutsherrin; Lina, ihre indianische Dienerin und heimliche Drahtzieherin; und das kranke Waisenkind Sorrow, das ein Schiffbruch dorthin verschlagen hat. Zusammen kämpfen sie gegen die Rückkehr der Wildnis auf die Farm. Alle vier haben ihre eigene Geschichte, und alle werden verfolgt von den Geistern ihrer Vergangenheit... Verschiedene Formen von Abhängigkeit und Unterdrückung, aber auch von Liebe und gesellschaftlichem Zusammenhalt werden hier in einer Sprache beleuchtet, die reine Poesie ist. Und über allem glänzt das Erbarmen der Autorin mit den Menschen in diesem großen Roman, der von der US-Kritik neben ihren Welterfolg „Menschenkind“ gestellt wurde.

Toni Morrison’s ninth novel, A Mercy, has been received with much acclaim by both the critical and lay reading public. Hailed as her best novel after the award-winning Beloved, most critics to date have concentrated on its setting in the late seventeenth century, a time in which, according to the author herself, slavery was “pre-racial,” a time before the “Terrible Transformation” irrevocably linked slavery to skin-color or “race.” Though a slender, easy to read novel, A Mercy is in fact a richly-layered text, full of multiple meanings and possibilities, a work of art that has only just begun to be “mined” for its critical import. The present volume is the first to deal with these possibilities, presenting a variety of critical approaches that include narrative theory, the eco-critical, the geographical, the allegorical, the Miltonian, the feminist, the metaphorical, and the Lacanian. As such, not only is it conceived to enrich the work of Morrison scholars and students, but also to illuminate the use of critical theory in elucidating a complex literary text. A Mercy clamors for close reading and thoughtful interrogation and promises to reward the perceptive reader.

This pamphlet or booklet is a humble attempt by the author to shine the light of Al-Islaam, the Holy Qur'an and the language of Imaam W. Deen Mohammed on the Book of Revelations. It is my sincere belief that the Holy Scriptures are interconnected and that the Holy Qur'an is the last chapter and the key to understanding all scriptures. The Islamic faith in my opinion is the New Zion. In this book I use the spelling Imaam for Imam, Islaam for Islam because I believe it gives the novice a better sense of how the words should be pronounced.

From New York Times bestselling author Mariah Stewart comes a novel of sexy romantic suspense for fans of Nora Roberts, Catherine Coulter, and Karen Robards. Former FBI agent Sam Delvecchio brings the keen skills of a profiler to his new position as a Mercy Street Foundation operative–and not a moment too soon. His first assignment, the cold-case murder of a local soup kitchen volunteer, has all the telltale signs of a serial killer’s work. That grim suspicion is confirmed when FBI agent Fiona Summers shares the details of two other killings with eerie similarities to Sam’s case: The bodies in all three cases have been carefully posed. And when a fourth victim is discovered, the two investigators realize they’re pursuing the same twisted quarry. Local parish priest Kevin Burch, Mercy Street founder Robert Magellan’s cousin, recognizes the posings for what they are: The killer is staging the church’ s seven Acts of Mercy (“Feed the hungry, clothe the naked . . .”) with the bodies of his victims. But as Sam and Fiona race to prevent the final three murders, taunting messages from their target lead to the most chilling realization of all.
