Thirteen-year-old Kyra has grown up in an isolated community without questioning the fact that her father has three wives and she has twenty brothers and sisters. That is, without questioning them much - if you don't count her secret visits to the Mobile Library on Wheels to read forbidden books, or her meetings with Joshua, the boy she hopes to choose for herself instead of having a man chosen for her. But when the Prophet decrees that she must marry her sixty-year-old uncle - who already has six wives - Kyra must make a desperate choice in the face of violence and her own fears of losing her family forever.
In The Chosen Ones, sociologist and feminist scholar Nikki Jones shares the compelling story of a group of Black men living in San Francisco’s historically Black neighborhood, the Fillmore. Against all odds, these men work to atone for past crimes by reaching out to other Black men, young and old, with the hope of guiding them toward a better life. Yet despite their genuine efforts, they struggle to find a new place in their old neighborhood. With a poignant yet hopeful voice, Jones illustrates how neighborhood politics, everyday interactions with the police, and conservative Black gender ideologies shape the men’s ability to make good and forgive themselves—and how the double-edged sword of community shapes the work of redemption.
"The Chosen One" tells of a dramastic moment of crisis in the relationship between an inarticulate young workman and the rich, ageing and possessive harridan who lives at the big house and owns his cottage. Of the other stories, two are tender and perceptive descriptions of old age, one the account of a small girls infatuation with her aunt's lover, another a subtle study of a character and relationships in a curious menage a trois, and two are tales of the revenge a lover takes on the one who miuses him.
A fundamentalist Islamic army is on the march in the Middle East, and the fight to stop the spread of madness will take everything the American military can muster, in this novel from the author of The Red Line. Two months ago, a new leader arose in the Islamic world, the Mahdi—or the Chosen One. He has rallied fundamentalist Muslim forces across the Middle East who have driven deep into Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Standing against them is an allied force made up primarily of the American military. It's a desperate fight. From armored battles in the desert to American carriers desperately dodging waves of cruise missiles, the Mahdi proves to have many tricks up his sleeve. Marine Lieutenant Sam Erickson is in the thick of the fighting. He and his company have fought their way from a landing on the Mediterranean shore to the outskirts of Cairo. Now he finds himself at a critical juncture, but can he make the sacrifices necessary for the greater good?
The Chosen One Gone are the days of hiding a man in my closet so he doesnt get shot or for that matter-both of us. Otherwise, I wouldnt be here to talk about it. It seems like another me, another life-time. I cant believe that I led that kind of life. It was pretty hectic!. My God, married and having 3 boyfriends at the same time. It was hard keeping track. It was insanity but at the time it seemed normal. But people do grow up and get wiser, hopefully. The last 24 years of my life have been the most content and peaceful since leaving home at 21.
