The Promiseby Jonathan Morris

The Promise

by Jonathan Morris



A modern family saga written in gorgeous prose by three-time Booker Prize-shortlisted author Damon Galgut.

Haunted by an unmet promise, the Swart family loses touch after the death of their matriarch. Adrift, the lives of the three siblings move separately through the uncharted waters of South Africa; Anton, the golden boy who bitterly resents his life's unfulfilled potential; Astrid, whose beauty is her power; and the youngest, Amor, whose life is shaped by a nebulous feeling of guilt.

Reunited by four funerals over three decades, the dwindling family reflects the atmosphere of its country--one of resentment, renewal, and, ultimately, hope. The Promise is an epic drama that unfurls against the unrelenting march of national history, sure to please current fans and attract many new ones.

"Simply: you must read it."--Claire Messud, Harper's Magazine

God Wants You Happyby Jonathan Morris

God Wants You Happy

by Jonathan Morris

"Inviting, accessible and personal. . . . A reminder of an overlooked truth: faith leads to joy." --James Martin, SJ, author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything

Fox News analyst Father Jonathan Morris challenges the wisdom espoused by New Age self-help experts with the time-tested counsel found in the Bible. Readers who may have sought solace in popular self-help books like Eckart Tolle's A New Earth, Rhonda Byrne's The Secret, or Deepak Chopra's The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success will be enthralled by Morris's moving argument about the enduring spiritual succor awaiting in Scripture.
