The Party’s Over: How the Extreme Right Hijacked the GOP and I Became a Democrat
by Charlie Crist and Ellis Henican
Former Florida Senator and Govenor, Charlie Crist, appears to have coincided the release of his new book “The Party’s over: How the Extreme Right Hijacked the GOP and I became a Democrat” with elections in 2014. The date set for release is February 4, 2014 and the book will be co-authored by Ellis Henican. Crist is widely expected to make another run for office in 2014 as Governor of the state of Florida.
According to a post on Henican’s blog:
“He will name names and offer a frank indictment of the failings of the Republican Party. THE PARTY’S OVER will reveal: the inside story of Crist’s 2010 Senate primary campaign against Marco Rubio; his journey from inner circle to persona non grata, thanks to his literal embrace of President Obama; his very frank opinions on Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, and other top-tier Republicans; why he announced his party switch at the White House Christmas party; what he’s learned as a member of both parties; and why he remains convinced that the two-party system can still work—with the right leadership.”
The post continued, “I have now seen both these parties at the highest levels from the inside. In the book, I’ll share my very strong feelings about what’s happened to the Republicans, how the party I grew up in has been hijacked by extremists, losing its compassion and common sense. I’ll describe exactly what I saw and what it made me realize. I have been a Democrat for seven months now. I have found a wonderful new home.”

The Communion of Saints: Talking to God and To Grandma
by Mary Grace
The book, “The Communion of Saints: Talking to God and To Grandma, ” is about communicating with loved ones even after they have passed away.
“As long as there are people dying, there will be people left behind who long to maintain that connection with a loved one who has passed. For grieving Roman Catholics, however, it is more difficult because the church prohibits the faithful from practicing spirit communication, also known as “spiritualism.” Mary Grace stated on the website Gift of Grace Ministry.
The author, Mary Grace, explains on the Livingston County News site that:
“Anyone can communicate with their loved ones on the other side. We all have that sixth sense, or psychic ability.” Mary explains that “The ground-breaking message of the book is that this communication, the ‘Communion of Saints’, is a God-given gift which can be better understood through the science of parapsychology.”
“If we can talk to God and the saints in heaven, why can’t we talk to Grandma in heaven?”- Mary Grace
