Moving from the heart of Brighton and Hove to the Sussex countryside is a big undertaking for Ollie and Caro Harcourt and their twelve-year-old daughter Jade. But when they view Cold Hill House - a huge, dilapidated Georgian mansion - Ollie is filled with excitement. Despite the financial strain of the move, he has dreamed of living in the country since he was a child, and he sees Cold Hill House, with its acres of land, as a paradise for his animal-loving daughter, the perfect base for his web-design business and a terrific long-term investment. Caro is less certain, and Jade is grumpy about being separated from her friends.Within days of moving in, it becomes apparent that the Harcourt family arent the only residents of the house. A friend of Jades is the first to see the spectral woman, standing behind her as the girls talk on FaceTime.
At a time when Christianity is flourishing in the Southern Hempisphere but declining in much of the West, Linda Woodhead offers a bold new overview of the worlds largest religion, exploring the cultural and institutional dimensions of Christianity over two millennia. Christianity addresses topics that other books neglect, for example the competition for power between different forms of Christianity, the churches uses of power, and their struggles with modernity. Woodhead also considers the recent charismatic explosion of Christianity in Latin America, Africa, and the Far East. She concludes by showing the ways in which those who previously had the least power in Christianity--women and non-Europeans--have become increaslingly central to its unfolding story. Up-to-date, authoritative, and filled with fresh insights, Christianity: A Very Short Introduction brings a vast and varied subject into sharp focus.
This started a bit slow for me, but took off quite strong. My first thought was the main characters were going to be a bit 2-dimensional. Soon, though I was drawn into wanting to know the mystery of the Man called the Black Cat. I like the Black Cat character and look forward to finding more to read.

Good, bad or otherwise (and probably all three), I missed the Marvel Star Wars comic launch. This at least is a low commitment book- a 40 page one shot written by one of my favorite comic writers Duane Swierczynski (confusingly labelled by Marvel as Issue #1, one suspects for extra sales).I am not a huge fan usually of One Shots, Annuals, etc, because there is only certain room which to work.Swierczynski does produce what I would consider a well done One Shot. The action is lively and works well with the context of not having much time to develop backstory. The supporting cast are well drawn (metaphorically by the author) and memorable.
