This is a true and incredible story of a Japanese adolescent, Shinji Mikamo, who miraculously survived the first atomic bombing of human kinds. He was on top of his house roof with nothing to shield him at only 3/4 of a mile (1,200m) from the epicenter in Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 toward the end of the World War II. But what made Shinji stand out from most of the survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, or even of many other man-made disasters in our history, he never hated Americans as aggressors. He somehow saw things from a much bigger perspective even in the very strict Japanese military government's mind control of civilians during the war. As one of his three legacy-carrying daughters, Dr. Akiko Mikamo wrote his story to send out the messages of human love and power of forgiveness to remind the world our worst enemies of yesterday could become the best friends of tomorro

Those who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all they hold dear. It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. The family ekes out an existence in the Empire’s impoverished backstreets. They do not challenge the Empire. They’ve seen what happens to those who do. But when Laia’s brother is arrested for treason, Laia is forced to make a decision. In exchange for help from rebels who promise to rescue her brother, she will risk her life to spy for them from within the Empire’s greatest military academy. There, Laia meets Elias, the school’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias wants only to be free of the tyranny he’s being trained to enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies are intertwined—and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.

Jennifer writes in a way that invites you on her journey of healing. With great depth and insight she encourages others to step onto the path of healing. The book will be a useful tool for those who want a deeper walk with the Lord. Linda Cochrane, author of Forgiven and Set Free When twenty-something Jennifer Disney discovered she was pregnant, she didn't feel overjoyed. Instead, guilt and shame nearly paralyzed her with fear. With a bright future ahead, she convinced herself that abortion was the only answer. On that fateful day, she made the decision to abort the baby, a choice that would forever change her life. Up from the Ashes tells Jennifer's remarkable true story of courage, faith, and healing from the devastating emotional and spiritual effects of her abortion. With refreshing candor, she shares her uphill battle of how she struggled to find relief from the constant emotional pain from her choice, and how this very struggle inspired her to reach out to others affected by post-abortion trauma. Divided into easy-to-read sections with a uniquely Biblical perspective, this part-guide, part-memoir delves into the most difficult issues surrounding abortion and offers help and hope to women in need of both. Jennifer's compassionate words accompany blank journal pages that encourage reflection and participation for sufferers, and create a safe, loving environment for recovery. For those lost in post-abortion trauma, Up from the Ashes offers the promise of hope and healing, and reveals the true power of faith and forgiveness.
