Someone Like You is a short, gripping story of life in wartime from Roald Dahl, the master of the shocking tale. In Someone Like You, Roald Dahl, one of the world's favourite authors, tells of two wartime pilots arguing over the fickle hand of fate (and the airman) . . . Someone Like You is taken from the short story collection Over to You, which includes nine other dramatic and terrifying tales of life as a wartime fighter pilot, and is drawn from Dahl's own experiences during the Second World War. This story is also available as a Penguin digital audio download read by Julian Rhind-Tutt. Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today.

From a box of old letters and memorabilia, Miriam Moran constructs the remarkable life of her mother, an American missionary in war-torn China who died before her children could remember her. Grace Liddell Cox was a strong-minded farm girl from Iowa who early dedicated herself to the spread of the gospel in China. A civil war was underway when she arrived, and war with Japan was brewing. Yet, with a steady trust in her heavenly Father, she made the long journey to her post in Yunnan province, crisscrossing the country again in her faithful service with the China Inland Mission. Her letters home detail her experiences with the people she came to love, her interactions with fellow missionaries, her own marriage and children, her harrowing escape from the Japanese army, and her undiminished confidence in God in each new circumstance. Someone to Be with Roxie shares the fascinating life story of a young missionary who gave her life to God for service in China, and found him entirely worthy of her trust.

Despite being cursed with a boy's name, Kevin "Vi" Connelly is seriously female and a committed romantic. The affliction hit at the tender age of six when she was handed a basket of flower petals and ensnared by the "marry-tale." The thrill, the attention, the big white dress—it's the Best Day of Your Life, and it's seriously addictive. But at twenty-seven, with a closetful of pricey bridesmaid dresses she'll never wear again, a trunkful of embarrassing memories, and an empty bank account from paying for it all, the illusion of matrimony as the Answer to Everything begins to fray. As her friends' choices don't provide answers, and her family confuses her more, Vi faces off against her eminently untrustworthy boyfriend and the veracity of the BDOYL. Eleven weddings in eighteen months would send any sane woman either over the edge or scurrying for the altar. But as reality separates from illusion, Vi learns that letting go of someone else's story to write your own may be harder than buying the myth, but just might help her make the right choices for herself.
