Dieses Buch lässt Dorothea sprechen. Sie erzählt vom Leben einer großen Bauernfamilie in der Zentralschweiz im 15. Jahrhundert, von 20 glücklichen Ehejahren, von Niklaus' überraschender Lebenswende mit 50 und von ihrem eigenen Werden.
Dabei zeigt sich das Bild zweier kantiger Persönlichkeiten und ihrer Lebenswege, die sich verbunden haben und die trotz Trennung untrennbar geblieben sind. So geht es nicht nur um Mystik und Politik des Heiligen, sondern ebenso um eine Ehe- und Liebesgeschichte, die um Verantwortung, Bindung und Freiheit weiß.
By Paul L. Williams
The writer is very severe of Popes Paul VI, John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis for directing the church to date clear of its conventional teachings and for an absence of oversight that allowed corruption to fester. Symptomatic of this failure of management are the hot pedophilia scandals, the continued monetary corruption, a homosexual prostitution ring contained in the Vatican, and felony investigations of connections among the Holy See and arranged crime.
This unflinching critique from a faithful, lifelong Catholic is a wakeup name to all Catholics to revive their church to its former degrees of ethical management and influence.

Making professional use of lately unearthed or published details, Morgan finds the interior workings of the yankee attempt to assist France, with Eisenhower secretly disdainful of the French attempt and prophetically frightened that “no army victory was once attainable in that kind of theater.” Morgan paints indelible pictures of all of the significant avid gamers, from Henri Navarre, head of the French Union forces, a inflexible specialist unprepared for an enemy fortified via rice carried on bicycles, to his commander, common Christian de Castries, a privileged, miscast cavalry officer, and common Vo Nguyen Giap, a grasp of guerrilla war figuring out of a one-room hut at the facet of a hill. such a lot devastatingly, Morgan units the level for the Vietnam quagmire that was once to come.
beautifully researched and powerfully written, Valley of Death is the crowning success of an writer whose paintings has continuously been as compulsively readable because it is important.
