Cindy Yee Kong was a normal little girl living a normal, everyday life in Hong Kong—until a crippling genetic disease reshaped not only her body but her sense of self. She developed uncontrollable twitching and slurred speech, making even the most mundane daily tasks a challenge. Yee’s childhood was defined by an endless string of appointments, as doctor after doctor tried in vain to help her. Desperate, she and her mother moved to New York in the hope of a new life. There, she faced insurmountable pressure to adapt to a new country, culture, and language. Tragically, in a home still haunted by alcoholism, her life was tainted by physical, mental, emotional, and sexual abuse. After a horrifying attack left her body and heart shattered, Yee struggled with shame and fear. In 1995, she was finally able to put a name to her condition—dopa-responsive dystonia—and her long path of treatment began. From a young age, Yee felt that the only one she could count on was herself. But then, in the midst of her darkest days, she experienced the miracle of true friend’s compassion and was able to begin the slow crawl out of despair. Determined not to be a victim anymore, she devoted herself to her education, earning her degree in sociology from Stony Brook University. A former social worker, Yee shares her story of pain, fear, and optimism, hoping to inspire others to push through their darkest times, too.

Jesus taught his followers that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven. Yet by the fall of Rome, the church was becoming rich beyond measure. Through the Eye of a Needle is a sweeping intellectual and social history of the vexing problem of wealth in Christianity in the waning days of the Roman Empire, written by the world's foremost scholar of late antiquity. Peter Brown examines the rise of the church through the lens of money and the challenges it posed to an institution that espoused the virtue of poverty and called avarice the root of all evil. Drawing on the writings of major Christian thinkers such as Augustine, Ambrose, and Jerome, Brown examines the controversies and changing attitudes toward money caused by the influx of new wealth into church coffers, and describes the spectacular acts of divestment by rich donors and their growing influence in an empire beset with crisis. He shows how the use of wealth for the care of the poor competed with older forms of philanthropy deeply rooted in the Roman world, and sheds light on the ordinary people who gave away their money in hopes of treasure in heaven. Through the Eye of a Needle challenges the widely held notion that Christianity's growing wealth sapped Rome of its ability to resist the barbarian invasions, and offers a fresh perspective on the social history of the church in late antiquity.

Late one June night in 2011, a large animal collided with an SUV cruising down a Connecticut parkway. The creature appeared as something out of New England's forgotten past. Beside the road lay a 140-pound mountain lion. Speculations ran wild, the wildest of which figured him a ghostly survivor from a bygone century when lions last roamed the eastern United States. But a more fantastic scenario of facts soon unfolded. The lion was three years old, with a DNA trail embarking from the Black Hills of South Dakota on a cross-country odyssey eventually passing within thirty miles of New York City. It was the farthest landbound trek ever recorded for a wild animal in America, by a barely weaned teenager venturing solo through hostile terrain. William Stolzenburg retraces his two-year journey--from his embattled birthplace in the Black Hills, across the Great Plains and the Mississippi River, through Midwest metropolises and remote northern forests, to his tragic finale upon Connecticut's Gold Coast. Along the way, the lion traverses lands with people gunning for his kind, as well as those championing his cause. Heart of a Lion is a story of one heroic creature pitting instinct against towering odds, coming home to a society deeply divided over his return. It is a testament to the resilience of nature, and a test of humanity's willingness to live again beside the ultimate symbol of wildness.
