SORT BY Relevancy
Louisa May Alcott was one of the most successful and bestselling authors of her day, earning more than any of her male contemporaries. Her classic Little Women has been a mainstay of American literature since its release nearly 150 years ago, as Jo March and her calm, beloved “Marmee” have shaped and inspired generations of young women. Biographers have consistently attributed Louisa’s uncommon success to her father, Bronson Alcott, assuming that this outspoken idealist was the source of his daughter’s progressive thinking and remarkable independence.
But in this riveting dual biography, award-winning biographer Eve LaPlante explodes these myths, drawing from a trove of surprising new documents to show that it was Louisa’s actual “Marmee,” Abigail May Alcott, who formed the intellectual and emotional center of her world. Abigail, whose difficult life both inspired and served as a warning to her devoted daughters, pushed Louisa to excel at writing and to chase her unconventional dreams in a male-dominated world.
In this groundbreaking work, LaPlante paints an exquisitely moving and utterly convincing portrait of a woman decades ahead of her time, and the fiercely independent daughter whose life was deeply entwined with her mother’s dreams of freedom. This gorgeously written story of two extraordinary women is guaranteed to transform our view of one of America’s most beloved authors.
Eve LaPlante is the author of Seized, American Jezebel, and Salem Witch Judge, the winner of the 2008 Massachusetts Book Award for Nonfiction. She is also the editor of a collection of Abigail May Alcott's private papers. She lives with her family in New England.

On the September 24, 2014 edition of "Nature Of Reality Radio" I welcome Eve Lorgen who is an author, hypnotherapist, and 20 year researcher in alien abductions, near death experiences, shamanic initiations, military abductions (milabs), mind control, spiritual warfare, psychic attacks, cult involvement and narcissistic abuse. Early on in her career counseling alien abductees, she discovered a plethora of unusual experiences that often accompanied those who reported alien encounters and milabs. The issue of mind control is central, and it is her belief that aliens (and incorporeal entities) are the master mind controllers behind secret government human agencies and black projects. The most prominent aspect of Eve’s consulting and support is with those who are experiencing some form of paranormal orchestrated love relationship issues, or what she calls “the love bite”.

in The Bible
The panel on this Norman Voss and Derek Lambert will be digging into the forbidden extra-biblical books to realize their significance to the scriptures from Genesis - Revelation. Most conservative evangelicals would consider these books as forbidden fruit that "thou shall not eat"!! We, on the other hand will consider the teachings of the book of Enoch, 2nd temple literature and early Christian literature that isnt found in the common bibles today. We ask that you have an open mind when looking into such studies. Cant miss this discussion!
SIN predates man and originates in Lucifer, aka, Satan, wanting to ascend into Heaven and sit on the Throne of God ruling all creation. The first sin was pride, which is the root of every other sin. The first human beings to commit a sin were Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, when they chose to follow the suggestion of Satan, in the form of a serpent, instead of being led by the holy and righteous word of God. Sin has continued throughout the ages, from one son of Adam and Eve, Cain, murdering their other son, his brother, Abel. to every murder, robbery, war, lie, abortion, act of hatred, envy, jealousy, blasphemy, abuse, sexual deviance, defiance to parents, neglect of innocent and unprotected children, to genocide, and so much more, which sadly, will be reported today, Monday, September 29, 2014.
Watch your 10 or 11:00 news this evening, for an update on all the tragic and gory details.
Sin, according to the Word of God, the Bible, will continue on this planet, called earth, even getting worse, in time, until that Day that Satan is thrown into the Lake of Fire, along with the anti-christ, and every wicked person that ever lived; and Christ finally reigns in His perfect, holy and eternal new heaven and new earth.
We intend, on this broadcast, to look into sin, to see all that it entails, it's impact and its consequences.
