Atop a 400 million year old monadknock outside of Atlanta Georgia called Arabia Mountain, wandering Bishops, occultists, mystics, and adepts of a multitude of traditions, link arms in mutual aid and support of each other while administering the mysterious points-chauds empowerments and performing various workings of the clergy of the Gnostic Church. Operating under the inclusive banner of Free Illuminism, these individuals from all walks of life work a progressive form of initiation by linking the points empowerments with the Antient & Primitive Rite of Memphis+Misriam, as expressed by the 1921-22 Ecclesiastical Revision of the Rite. Each individual empowered from the Arabia Mountain workings is free to develop and research the mysteries of the points and their alignments to this progressive arm of Freemasonry. This book is the result of such exploration. +PALAMAS, working with his companion in the mysteries and wife, SALOME+, has merged together the two worlds of the Voudon Gnostic inspired points-chauds empowerments with the degrees of the Rites of Memphis & Misraim in an innovative and unique system that is fully workable and expresses the living tradition that stems from Arabia Mountain. The approach is spiritist and the manner of Masonry propounded is mystical. The sincere individual that explores this powerful path will have access to the supersensual realms and encounter entities and energies that are consciousness expanding and life altering. In a single tome +PALAMAS has provided an introduction to the movement and practice of Free Illuminism, created an inspired three degree system that unfolds the Sacred Doctrine of Memphis+Misraim, and revealed an operative and spiritist ritual monitor and guide for working all 97 degrees.

The Durand family comes from a very traditional French village, where daughters are married off to eligible men - regardless of what those daughters want. At the height of the Great Depression, recent immigrant Madame Durand believes that the family's best chance for survival is finding a suitable match for Amandine, her eldest daughter, in New York City. But Amandine has other ideas in the form of David Middleton. Despite the odds, the two forge a relationship with Madame Durand's disapproval hanging over them. When America is forced to join WWII, David answers the call of duty and goes to Europe. Traumatized by the horrors of war and unsure if Amandine will give in to her mother, David finds comfort in the arms of a mysterious stranger. In turn, Amandine must find the courage to stand up to her mother and hope that David not only survives, but returns to her at war's end.
