Barry Kaufman's life has been spent helping others cope with severe adversities and traumas. When he learned of his father's cancer diagnosis, he had to summon all of his strength. That struggle, and the surprising rewards that came from it are the subject of No Regrets. Kaufman's father, Abe, was a man of simple tastes, modest aspirations, and respectable accomplishments who dares, at age eighty-five, to open his heart in the face of a terminal illness. His son was not ready for it at first, having limited emotional reserves after his own son was diagnosed as irreversibly autistic. This moving book about the unbreakable bond between a father and son shows how one man learned to confront and finally celebrate life's transitions.

"If you could turn back time, who would you be?" Once a question posed of me, I answered back; "I would be who I am today!" "Do you have any regrets you'd like to say?"

This is the first sustained study examining how the emotions of remorse and regret were manifested in Greek and Roman public life. By discussing the standard lexical denotations of remorse, Fulkerson shows how it was not normally expressed by high-status individuals, but by their inferiors, and how it often served to show defect of character.
A Father’s Prayer Journal offers a meaningful collection of prayers and reflections to draw fathers--and soon-to-be fathers--closer to God so they can effectively nurture their children’s spiritual development.

Author Kelly Gebert instilled the lifelong habit of prayer in his own eight children and has enjoyed spiritual fellowship with them in childhood, teen years and now adulthood. Through his personal knowledge and experiences, Gebert provides fellow fathers with practical ideas of how to lead a child’s spiritual journey--prayerfully, thoughtfully and intentionally. “Because of my father on earth, I know and love my Father in heaven.” --Joy Gebert

Tessa Winthrop, an art restoration specialist, is hoping for the job of a lifetime—one which would cement her reputation in a field dominated by her male colleagues. Working for Baron Lucien Stanhope—or Leo as he prefers—challenges Tess’s talent, intellect, and emotions. Leo is charming, handsome, and way out of her league. It doesn’t matter, though, because she only is there for her art and the mystery surrounding master painter Giovanni Remini. When a night of passion leads to consequences that could mean the end of her career, Tess fears that the baron regrets having ever met her. But fate has more in store for them, and sometimes regrets are the beginning of better things.
Roger Scruton is Britain's best known intellectual dissident, who has defended English traditions and English identity against an official culture of denigration. Although his writings on philosophical aesthetics have shown him to be a leading authority in the field, his defence of political conservatism has marked him out in academic circles as public enemy number one. Whether it is Scruton's opinions that get up the nose of his critics, or the wit and erudition with which he expresses them, there is no doubt that their noses are vastly distended by his presence, and constantly on the verge of a collective sneeze. Contrary to orthodox opinion, however, Roger Scruton is a human being, and Gentle Regrets contains the proof of it - a quiet, witty but also serious and moving account of the ways in which life brought him to think what he thinks, and to be what he is. His moving vignettes of his childhood and later influences illuminate this book. Love him or hate him, he will engage you in an argument that is both intellectually stimulating and informed by humour.
