And Christine, who on the surface enjoys a successful career as a meteorologist at an American investment bank, is lost. Her boss, Mark, is equally successful - you would never know that his home life is falling apart. Is it possible that two people, floundering in their own lives, just might be able to save one another?
Insider trading, rambunctious Christmas parties, overnight conferences, the modern office environment has it all. But it can also be the stage for a simple, modern love story.
ALBERTA CLIPPER is that story.
"Reminiscent of Bridget Jones... a single girl living in the big city pines for love...in this novel that will satisfy fans of modern day chic lit." - Publishers Weekly
by Jo Ann V. Glim
This memoir will make you laugh... it will make you cry. It will make you laugh until you cry!
"My family is a writer's dream," Glim said, "Filled with remarkable characters but then every family has its share of dreamers and doers, cowards and cads, heroes and heroines. I hope after reading BEGOTTEN: With Love you will love my family as much as I do... warts and all. More than that, I hope you will love your family even more!" [close]

This book is the English edition of my German book "Reise durch das Alte Testament" (ISBN 978-3-9815308-0-3). Both books were published in January 2013. The Journey is an annotated storybook with texts from the first part of the Old Testament, the Five Books of Moses, and illustrations covering more than 2000 years of Christian and Jewish art.
It was first and foremost written for all those who always wanted to get to know the biblical texts but never really got into it. Maybe the remote language made you shrink back or the seemingly obsolete content with apparently no connection to your own life. Therefore, since understanding the texts is not self-evident, I inserted commentaries alongside the selected stories. The commentaries are based upon insights of current academic theology. And to get our children going, too, I added easy-to read explanations alongside the pictures. You’ll find more than 120 masterpieces of art in this book in beautiful print! The texts are excerpts from different Standard English translations of the Bible.
Since my plan is to give you a thorough introduction to all books of the Bible, I had to divide my bible project into several volumes. This book is volume one and contains the Five Books of Moses, the Torah. It underlines the necessity for Christians to have a sound knowledge of the Old Testament. The New is based upon the Old!
So far, I have not been able, to upload a preview of my book in epub; instead you could visit my homepage (www.bibleandart-publishinghouse.com) and you’ll find sample readings to download if you navigate to the information on “The first book” (scroll down to the bottom).
So, I would be very happy if this book could help opening up the biblical treasures for you – in a fresh, unbiased and transparent way, written by a Catholic and ecumenical Christian!
