Have you ever blamed God when your life was turned upside down? Our heroin Kristen does after her parents are burned at the stake, leaving her lost and abandoned in a Massachusetts forest in 1692. Doubt crawled into her heart and mind. Was God really such a merciless being as to kill people just like that, for no reason at all? Or was something else behind their murders? These and more questions haunt Kristin Malach Elohim everyday in "An Angel's Sorrow." The more Kristin questions, the faster she turns away from God and watched her salvation slowly withers away.

Share the joys and pains of Kristin as she is thrust in a spiritual battle for her soul. "An Angel's Sorrow" will leave you mesmerized and frightened as you picture yourself in Kristen's shoes.
The End or the Proximate signs of the close of this dispensation
Author: John CUMMING (D.D., Minister of the Scottish National Church, Crown Court.)
In the aftermath of the Civil War, New Mexico Territory endured painful years of hardship and ongoing strife. During this turbulent period, a U.S. military officer stationed in the territory assembled an album of photographs, a series of still shots taken by one or more anonymous photographers. Now, some 150 years later, Hardship, Greed, and Sorrow reproduces the anonymous officer’s “souvenir album” in its totality. Offering an important glimpse of the American Southwest in the mid-1860s, the book opens with a thoughtful foreword by Jennifer Nez Denetdale, who considers the varied and lingering effects that settlement, conquest, and nineteenth-century photography had on the Apaches and Navajos. In her insightful introduction accompanying the photographs, curator and scholar Devorah Romanek places the photographs in historical context and explains their unusual provenance. As she points out, the 1866 album integrates a number of important themes in connection to the Civil War and Reconstruction periods, including the French intervention in New Mexico and the internment of Navajos at the Bosque Redondo Indian Reservation. The story of the album’s provenance reads like a mystery: some loose ends remain untied and some questions remain unanswered. In addition to containing what may be the earliest extant photographs of Navajo Indians, the album features both studio and field images of U.S. Army officers, Mexican politicians, and various sites throughout New Mexico. According to Romanek, a number of the album’s photographs have appeared in other publications but with scant attention to their original context or purpose. This compelling book reveals what we know about the collection, its compiler, and the photographer—or photographers—who captured such a fraught and complex moment in the history of the American Southwest.
