July 16th, 1942 Andre Dumont is a collaborationist who has made a fortune buying art and valuables from Jews who sell their collections and heirlooms at ridiculously low prices in order to quickly obtain money as they attempt to escape from Europe. Dumont has befriended the Schwartzmanns so he can evaluate their art collection. He not only becomes a "friend of the family," but he becomes the lover of the Schwartzmanns' eldest daughter, Anna. Andre Dumont, using his influence and friends in the Nazi hierarchy in Paris, manages to get the Schwartzmann family listed for deportation. He wants to rid himself of any person who can claim the art he plans to have "confiscated" from the Schwartzmanns. The Schwartzmanns are arrested, but Anna, who has been living with Dumont, escapes the round-up. Dumont denounces his lover to the Nazis in order to rid himself of the last person who may lay claim to the Schwartzmann collection. Present Day After her mother dies, Mimi is putting away her mother's things and she discovers that the woman who she thought was her grandmother was not her biological grandmother. Her real grandmother's name was Anna, someone who, along with all of her family, died in the Nazi death camps. She comes to know all of this through Anna's diary. In it, she finds out that her family's art collection was stolen and she decides to embark on a quest to recover it. In Paris, Edouard Dumont, son of Andre Dumont, is the French Minister of Culture. He desperately needs money to finance his political career and save the financially struggling family business, a huge art gallery and auction house, from bankruptcy. He wants to sell the art his father left him, art stolen from the Jews. Edouard Dumont's and Mimi's destinies are about to cross as part of her plan to find out what happened to her family's art collection, Mimi gets a job at Edouard Dumont's art auction business. While working there, Mimi discovers that some of the art that will be sold at auction has very shady provenance. Could this be part of her family's collection? Enter Guillermo Lombardo, a retired police inspector, who rents Mimi's Paris apartment for a week and finds himself romantically entangled with the woman. Things soon take a turn for the worst for Lombardo. Upon his arrival in Brittany to see friends, a policeman shows up to question Lombardo. It seems Mimi has been reported missing and Mimi's friend, Sophie, has been found strangled in her own apartment. As Lombardo was the last person to see Mimi before she disappeared, the police consider him a suspect in Mimi's disappearance. To clear his name, Lombardo must find his missing lover, and stay one step ahead of a vicious killer."

Aunt Jimmy's Will Joshua’s honest face flushed with pleasure at the implied trust, yet he could hardly keep the smile from his lips and a mysterious twinkle from his eyes as he shook the doctor’s hand heartily and answered: “We’re much obleeged, and we’ll never forget that you and Mis’is Jedd held us well enough in esteem to make the offer, but I reckon the only way we could come to own the fruit farm would be by buying it out fair and square. I don’t say but I’d be downhearted to see it go by me, especially to ’Biram Slocum, for they’ve been days, doc, when I’ve even kind o’ pictured out the two farms, ourn and it, joined fast by your sellin’[216] me that wood bluff that runs in between from the highway. But you know the sayin’, doc, ‘Man proposes, woman disposes,’ and all that.” This time the doctor caught the wink that Joshua’s near eye gave in spite of itself, but thought that it referred to Aunt Jimmy’s peculiarities. “Well,” said the doctor, deliberately, a genial smile spreading over his features, “one thing I’ll do to help out your picturing, as you call it. If luck should turn so that you buy the fruit farm, I’ll sell you the wood knoll for what I gave for it, and that’s the first time I ever considered parting with it, though I’ve had no end of good offers.” “Here’s the boys jest come home in time to witness that there remark o’ yourn. Ain’t yer gettin’ kind er rash ’n’ hasty, doc?” “No, Joshua, the more witnesses, the better,” and the two men went out the door, toward the fence where the doctor’s chaise was tied, laughing heartily. As to the boys, they were completely bewildered, for not a word did they know, or would until after the auction, and they had not the remotest idea that their father even dreamed of bidding on the fruit farm.

The Mystery and the Masterpiece

I wouldn't trust myself in a dimly lit room with someone of the opposite sex. ... Never harm or cheat a Christian brother in this matter by violating his wife, for the Lord avenges all such sins, as we have solemnly warned you before.

In today’s conversation about marriage and sexuality, both inside and outside the church, most people know what the Bible says. But do they know why it says what it does? Why the restrictions? What’s the purpose? Don’t we have freedom . . . to do with our bodies what we will . . . to love whomever we choose to love? In The Mystery and the Masterpiece, Randy Blankenship, Sr. shows a Biblical portrait of marriage. From cover to cover the Bible presents marriage as a masterpiece. Even in the church, it seems to have been a mystery. But it is a beautiful portrait painted by God for the purpose of revealing the kind of relationship He desires with mankind. If we only have information, but don’t see the picture, we miss the beauty of the masterpiece. We miss the message marriage was designed to teach us. The Mystery and the Masterpiece will not only help existing and future marriages, it will help people to be able to talk about marriage and sexuality presenting a viewpoint not with anger or acrimony, but speaking the truth in love.
