“Fiendishly well-plotted, hugely entertaining.” —Lucy Foley, bestselling author of The Hunting Party In this classic whodunit filled with red herrings and double-crosses, the Queen of Crime returns in the role of sleuth as she investigates a mysterious death in the Scottish Highlands. Bestselling novelist and part-time undercover sleuth Agatha Christie is looking forward to a bit of well-deserved rest and relaxation when her longtime friend John Davison pleads with her to help him protect a retired British agent turned hotelier who has been receiving threatening letters. Together they travel to Dallach Lodge, a beautiful estate on Scotland’s picturesque Isle of Skye. There they insert themselves among the hotel’s illustrious guests, including members of the owner’s family, a leading lady of the theater, a brilliant botanist, a local doctor, and two sisters who coauthor romance novels. After a pleasant first evening, Agatha thinks it unlikely that any of them are capable of evil, much less murder. But early the next morning, the sound of a gunshot rings out and the hotel owner is found dead in the arms of his nephew. At first, it appears to be a simple hunting accident, but as Agatha digs deeper, she discovers that each and every one of the residents has a reason for wanting the late proprietor dead.

"God is always involved in our lives, but often we don't notice, too busy with our own agenda to appreciate what He is doing for us. In her book I Saw That, Tracie shares some poignant events in her life where she was able to see God's hand interceding in her life in divine, life-changing ways. This is a well-written, engaging narrative that will provide valuable biblical insights on how you, too, can say, 'I saw that' when God intervenes in your life." - Bob Russell, Retired Senior Minister of Southeast Christian Church Everybody wants a miracle-a Red Sea to be parted, a giant to be slayed, a mountain to be moved. And while God can still part seas, take down giants, and move mountains, often the most significant miracle is that God chooses to walk with His children in the daily grind of life ... that He knows our prayers before we speak them and knows the number of hairs on our head. I Saw That is about the miracle of the minutiae. We rarely miss the big things God does or the ways He answers our big, bold prayers, but we rarely see the small ways He cares for us-speaks to us and dances over us-mostly because we aren't looking. But God is at work daily in the ordinary and mundane, bringing all things together for our good. It's never a matter of whether or not He is faithful. It's always a matter of whether or not we see it. If you're a follower of Jesus, this book will strengthen your faith. If you're not quite sure you believe in God, it may just change your mind!
I saw that. Although I have seen God throughout my life, the events of this story are when I started to use the phrase, “I saw that!” As my Father went out of His way to restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish me, I wanted Him ...

Here in these pages is given a vivid and realistic pen-picture of a unique personality—unique because she was nun, wife and mother at the same time. The Holy Mother Sri Sarada Devi, the divine consort of Sri Ramakrishna, is here presented, in all her rustic simplicity, which breaks the barriers of commonality by its artless naturalness inspired by a universal love which made no distinction between friend and foe, the small and the great, the ignorant and the wise, but enfolded every living being in the charming fragrance of motherliness that her personality exuded. Swami Saradeshananda, the recorder of these precious reminiscences, is a disciple of the Mother, who had opportunities to serve her very intimately and thus hear those conversations and witness those small events that took place in the village of Jayarambati. He has therefore drawn a pen-picture of the Mother with a wealth of details, thus giving a realistic presentation of the concept of Universal Motherhood in human terms.
