Here are the Newsmax Rising Bestsellers for the week of Sept. 14, 2020:
1. “Everything Beautiful in Its Time: Seasons of Love and Loss” by Jenna Bush Hager (William Morrow). The former first daughter and granddaughter shares stories about her beloved grandparents, George and Barbara Bush, and the wisdom they passed on that has shaped her life. Gampy and Ganny, as she called them, taught her about respect, humility, kindness, and living a life of passion and meaning — timeless lessons she says continue to guide her. “As long as I’m alive, my grandparents will not be forgotten,’’ Jenna writes. “I hear their voices in the letters they sent me and in my memories. They offer comfort, support, and guidance, and I will listen to them always.” (Nonfiction)
2. “Nothing to Lose: Unlikely Allies in the Struggle for a Better Black America” by Pastor Darrell Scott (Post Hill Press). Scott, President Trump’s most prominent African-American supporter and advisor, recounts how and why he boarded the “Trump Train,” revealing the considerable difficulties he experienced along the way. He highlights the accomplishments he, his allies, and members of the Trump administration have worked to earn on behalf of America’s black community in the United States. And he describes Trump’s little-understood relationship with Christianity.’’ (Nonfiction)
3. “Obsession: Inside the Washington Establishment's Never-Ending War on Trump” by Byron York (Regnery). The veteran conservative journalist looks at how the Democrats and the media have treated President Trump — and says they’ve been gripped by an anti-Trump hysteria that has blinded them to reality. He reveals why Trump originally resisted advice to fire FBI director James Comey; the strategy behind the Trump defense team’s full cooperation with Robert Mueller’s investigators — and how they ultimately felt betrayed by Mueller; and why Nancy Pelosi gave up trying to restrain her impeachment-obsessed party. (Nonfiction)
4. “Divided We Fall: America's Secession Threat and How to Restore Our Nation” by David French (St. Martin’s Press). French, a former senior writer at National Review and an Iraq War veteran, warns of the potential dangers to the country if Americans don’t reconcile their political differences. He says the U.S. is less united than at any time in its history since the Civil War, with red and blue states, secular and religious groups, liberal and conservative idealists, and Republican and Democratic representatives each believing their distinct cultures and liberties are being threatened by an escalating violent opposition. This polarized tribalism, he argues, could very well lead to secession. French lays out plausible scenarios of how the nation could fracture into regions that will not only weaken the country but destabilize the world. But he also offers the hope that the American divide can be healed. (Nonfiction)
5. “The Nazi Spy Ring in America: Hitler's Agents, the FBI, and the Case That Stirred the Nation” by Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones (Georgetown University Press). Jeffreys-Jones, a noted historian, chronicles the infiltration of America by Nazi spies and how they were exposed. In the mid-1930s, just as the U.S. was embarking on a policy of neutrality, Nazi Germany launched a program of espionage, with Hitler’s henchmen attempting to spread anti-Semitic propaganda, steal military technology, and mapp U.S. defenses. At the center of the story is Leon Turrou, the FBI agent who helped bring down the Nazi spy ring in a case that quickly transformed into a national sensation. The arrest and prosecution of four members of the ring was a high-profile case with all the trappings of fiction: fast cars, louche liaisons, a murder plot, a Manhattan socialite, and a ringleader codenamed Agent Sex. (Nonfiction)
