Mark Twain, the “Father of American Literature,” and renowned humorist, satirist, and commentator on humanity and American life, is best known for his classic, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Twain’s body of work, however, is expansive; from Adventures of Tom Sawyer and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court to the travelogue The Innocents Abroad and essays on human nature, religion, science, and literature, no aspect of life is left untouched by Twain. His portrayal of American life, ripe with the contradictions of America’s ideals and its actual practices, as well as his characters, at once fantastical and completely human, provide a window onto humanity and social life. As the third book in the Great Authors and Philosophy series, Mark Twain and Philosophy reveals deeper issues raised by Twain’s work and speaks to his continued relevance as a social commentator interrogating issues fundamental to our lives. From slavery, freedom, and human rights, to science, parapsychology, and religion, this book exposes how Twain’s body of work touches every corner of human experience.

The investigation into the whereabouts of his young assistant Katy Shore is a waste of time in accountant Cal Miller's opinion and, with his reputation as a relative newcomer to small town Leyton's business community to protect and his wife's good graces to consider, the decision to withhold information that could get him into trouble is an easy one. A couple of days and he'll be in the clear, or so he thinks, until he discovers Katy's deceptions far outweigh his own. Facing issues of trust he thought he'd put behind him, Cal finds his business, marriage and freedom at stake in a way he could never have imagined. With detectives deaf to his claims that no crime has been committed and townspeople out for revenge, his ill-conceived responses to the developing scandal merely aggravate the situation and lead even his family to wonder whether his secrets are darker and his past more blemished than he is willing to admit.

In the beginning I never intended to write a book. I just started writing poetry in my early teens, and now after fifteen years of writing I decided to put it all together in a book. This is me, my life, my love, my failure, my faith, to share with all of you. My love for poetry is strong but my love for God is stronger, but I will remind all my readers that poetry is sometimes raw and very blunt, but can also touch the deepest depths of our souls. I hope my book finds that part in you.

Bist du meine Tochter? Vor achtzehn Jahren hat Simone Porter ihre sechs Monate alte Tochter Helena verloren – die Kleine wurde entführt. Alle Versuche, das Kind wiederzufinden, schlugen fehl. Zusammen mit ihrem Ehemann Matt, einem Arzt, brauchte Simone eine lange Zeit, um sich von diesem Schicksalsschlag zu erholen. Nun aber taucht eine achtzehnjährige Frau auf, die sich Grace nennt und behauptet, ihre Tochter zu sein. Als Beweis legt sie ein Stofftier vor, das damals im Kinderwagen der kleinen Helena lag. Simone weiß nicht, ob sie dieser Frau trauen kann – doch Grace sorgt noch für eine andere Überraschung. Sie gesteht, einen Mann getötet zu haben, der an ihrer Entführung beteiligt war, und bittet Simone, ihr zu helfen. Doch die Leiche ist verschwunden – und dann ist auch Grace wie vom Erdboden verschluckt.

Ich wusste sofort, dass ich etwas in Händen hielt, was ich nicht sehen wollte. Dennoch zog ich die Karte aus dem Umschlag und starrte auf die Schrift. Alles Gute zum Jahrestag! Ich fürchtete, mich übergeben zu müssen, faltete dennoch die Karte auseinander. Auf der Innenseite stand mein Name. Leah Einzig mein Vorname. In kindlicher Schrift. Jeder Buchstabe hatte eine andere Größe. Ich warf die Karte zurück auf den Tisch, als könnte sie mir körperliche Schmerzen zufügen. Meine Wohnung schien noch kleiner zu werden, als versuchte sie, mich zu erdrücken ... Meine Vergangenheit holte mich ein.
