The Unremembered Girl: A Novel
by Eliza Maxwell

In the deep woods of East Texas, Henry supports his family by selling bootleg liquor. It’s all he can do to keep his compassionate but ailing mother and his stepfather—a fanatical grassroots minister with a bruising rhetoric—from ruin. But they have no idea they’ve become the obsession of the girl in the woods.

Abandoned and nearly feral, Eve has been watching them, seduced by the notion of family—something she’s known only in the most brutal sense. Soon she can’t resist the temptation to get close. Where Henry’s mother sees a poor girl in need, his father sees only wickedness. When Henry forges an unexpected bond with Eve, he believes he might be able to save her. He doesn’t know how wrong he is.

Eve is about to take charge of her own destiny—and that of Henry’s family. As both their worlds spin violently out of control, Henry must make an impossible choice: protect the broken young woman who’s claimed a piece of his soul, or put everyone he loves at risk in order to do the right thing.

Drilling Data Handbook 9th Edition
by Jean-Paul Nguyen

The first edition of the Drilling Data Handbook was printed in 1950. In more than six decades, the book has been improved, adding lots of new technologies and equipment in its eight additional editions. But its principle is to remain familiar and friendly to users. Its philosophy has always been to give quick access to the basic information or calculations for the office or field operations. That is why we consider that our task is to select and highlight the most important data, charts, and formulas. The Drilling Data Handbook tries to combine international and field units for the benefit of a majority of people from different technical cultures. Past editions' success strengthened the authors in persevering and publishing a new paper edition. A large number of field personnel have confirmed the Drilling Data Handbook as their reference, now in combination with electronic documents and the Internet. This edition refreshes and updates data and references of the eighth edition, but also includes more information.

Through the Storm, Through the Night: A History of African American Christianity (The African American History Series)
by Paul Harvey

Paul Harvey illustrates how black Christian traditions provided theological, institutional, and personal strategies for cultural survival during bondage and into an era of partial freedom. At the same time, he covers the ongoing tug-of-war between themes of "respectability" versus practices derived from an African heritage; the adoption of Christianity by the majority; and the critique of the adoption of the "white man's religion" from the eighteenth century to the present. The book also covers internal cultural, gendered, and class divisions in churches that attracted congregants of widely disparate educational levels, incomes, and worship styles.

Through the Storm, Through the Night provides a lively overview to the history of African American religion, beginning with the birth of African Christianity amidst the Transatlantic slave trade, and tracing the story through its growth in America. Paul Harvey successfully uses the history of African American religion to portray the complexity and humanity of the African American experience.
