Book Short Summary:

“Here is a life story so unbelievable, it could only be true.” —Sandra Cisneros, bestselling author of The House on Mango Street From bestselling author of the remarkable memoir The Distance Between Us comes an inspiring account of one woman’s quest to find her place in America as a first-generation Latina university student and aspiring writer determined to build a new life for her family one fearless word at a time. As an immigrant in an unfamiliar country, with an indifferent mother and abusive father, Reyna had few resources at her disposal. Taking refuge in words, Reyna’s love of reading and writing propels her to rise above until she achieves the impossible and is accepted to the University of California, Santa Cruz. Although her acceptance is a triumph, the actual experience of American college life is intimidating and unfamiliar for someone like Reyna, who is now estranged from her family and support system. Again, she finds solace in words, holding fast to her vision of becoming a writer, only to discover she knows nothing about what it takes to make a career out of a dream. Through it all, Reyna is determined to make the impossible possible, going from undocumented immigrant of little means to “a fierce, smart, shimmering light of a writer” (Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild); a National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist whose “power is growing with every book” (Luis Alberto Urrea, Pultizer Prize finalist); and a proud mother of two beautiful children who will never have to know the pain of poverty and neglect. Told in Reyna’s exquisite, heartfelt prose, A Dream Called Home demonstrates how, by daring to pursue her dreams, Reyna was able to build the one thing she had always longed for: a home that would endure.

Book Short Summary:

"Patrick Gale has written a book which manages to be both tender and epic, and carries the unmistakable tang of a true story. I loved it." -- Jojo Moyes A privileged elder son, and stammeringly shy, Harry Cane has followed convention at every step. Even the beginnings of an illicit, dangerous affair do little to shake the foundations of his muted existence - until the shock of discovery and the threat of arrest cost him everything. Forced to abandon his wife and child, Harry signs up for emigration to the newly colonised Canadian prairies. Remote and unforgiving, his allotted homestead in a place called Winter is a world away from the golden suburbs of turn-of-the-century Edwardian England. And yet it is here, isolated in a seemingly harsh landscape, under the threat of war, madness and an evil man of undeniable magnetism that the fight for survival will reveal in Harry an inner strength and capacity for love beyond anything he has ever known before. In this exquisite journey of self-discovery, loosely based on a real life family mystery, Patrick Gale has created an epic, intimate human drama, both brutal and breathtaking. This is a novel of secrets, sexuality and, ultimately, of great love.

Book Short Summary:

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE—The #1 New York Times bestselling worldwide sensation with more than 12 million copies sold, hailed by The New York Times Book Review as “a painfully beautiful first novel that is at once a murder mystery, a coming-of-age narrative and a celebration of nature.” For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life—until the unthinkable happens. Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.

Book Short Summary:

Since the onset of the mortgage lending crisis and the subsequent Great Recession, there has been ongoing debate about the economic benefits of homeownership. Some say homeownership remains an important contributor to wealth creation, while others believe that renting is a less expensive and less risky option. This debate has raised an interesting question about homeownership: if the home is not guaranteed to provide a solid return on investment, is there a rationale for promoting homeownership beyond whatever financial benefits it may deliver? The authors' research has provided tremendous insights into the extra-financial effects of affordable homeownership. It shows that homeowners, when compared with renters, have better health outcomes, experience less stress in times of financial hardship, experience a greater sense of trust in their neighbors, have access to more social capital resources, and are more likely to vote. Further, the data allows us to explore not only what benefits result from affordable homeownership, but how and why these benefits are transferred. The book ultimately argues that homeownership is not only important for financial reasons, but also functions as a social tool that can improve the lives of low- and moderate-income people.

Book Short Summary:

From award-winning author Sara Zarr comes a story of the small moments that show us who we are, and how family is not just something you’re part of, but something you make. Lou and her family don’t have much, but for Lou it's enough. Mom. Her sister, Casey. Their apartment in the city. Her best friend, Beth. It would be better if Dad could stop drinking and be there for her and Casey, and if they didn't have to worry about money all the time. But Lou doesn’t need better—she only needs enough. What’s enough for Lou, however, is not enough for Mom. Steve, Mom's boyfriend, isn’t a bad guy, he's just…not what Lou is used to. And now, he and Mom are getting married, and that means moving. Packing up life as they’ve known it and storing it in Steve’s garage. Lou will be separated from everything in her small but predictable life, farther from Dad than ever. Their last night in the city, Lou receives a mysterious birthday gift: A guitar, left for her by their front door. There’s nothing saying who left it, but it must be from Dad. And as she leaves the only place she’s ever known, she starts to believe that if she can learn how to play it, maybe she can bring a piece of him, and of her old life, home.

Book Short Summary:

Places that Matter asks the reader to identify a place that matters in their life—their home, a place of worship, a park, or some other site that acts as an emotional and physical anchor and connects them to a neighborhood. Then readers are asked: In what ways do I currently support—or fail to support—that neighborhood? Should support be increased? If so, in what ways? Joan Ferrante guides students through a learning experience that engages qualitative and quantitative research and culminates in writing a meaningful plan of action or research brief. Students are introduced to basic concepts of research and are exposed to the experiences of gathering and drawing on data related to something immediate and personal. The class-tested exercises are perfect for courses that emphasize action-based research and social responsibility. The book’s overarching goal is to help students assess their neighborhood’s needs and strengths and then create a concrete plan that supports that neighborhood and promotes its prosperity. Accompanying the book is a facilitator’s companion website to guide action-based research experiences, which includes rubrics that are aligned to common learning objectives and are also designed to make tracking and reporting easier.

Book Short Summary:

From beloved indie musician Andrew McMahon comes a searingly honest and beautifully written memoir about the challenges and triumphs of his life and career, as seen through the lens of his personal connection to three pianos. Andrew McMahon grew up in sunny Southern California as a child prodigy, learning to play piano and write songs at a very early age, stunning schoolmates and teachers alike with his gift for performing and his unique ability to emotionally connect with audiences. McMahon would go on to become the lead singer and songwriter for Something Corporate and Jack's Mannequin, and to release his debut solo album, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, in 2014. But behind this seemingly optimistic and quintessentially American story of big dreams come true lies a backdrop of overwhelming challenges that McMahon has faced—from a childhood defined by his father's struggle with addiction to his very public battle with leukemia in 2005 at the age of twenty-three, as chronicled in the intensely personal documentary Dear Jack. Overcoming those odds, McMahon has found solace and hope in the things that matter most, including family, the healing power of music and the one instrument he's always turned to: his piano. Three Pianos takes readers on a beautifully rendered and bitter-sweet American journey, one filled with inspiration, heartbreak, and an unwavering commitment to shedding our past in order to create a better future.

Book Short Summary:

It is incumbent upon man to become aware of the powerful forces that surround him and may be leading him to a possible unexpected outcome. He must come out of complacency and see his purpose for what it is was meant to be by the Creator. The status quo of oil should be slowly but unequivocally phased out. When it first oozed from the ground, it became the driving force of the economy. It was meant to be that way. God made sure of that. But man has decided today to abuse that purpose by using it to manipulate economies and start wars in the name of peace, only to lead man in the path of destruction by the way of an agenda. Man feels he must take control of man, contrary to the wishes of God. But man can save himself by bringing about the change that is waiting to be unveiled in the ushering in of free energy. It is real but must be given the proper venue. My life tells a metaphor as a connection, like thunder as the voice of God and lighting as the glare of his eyes that foretell a warning, though it is so common, man tends not to see the connection. He must look at things differently. It is not for me to judge. The Creator has the last word on that, just as He has the last word in the written prophesies. However, I can suggest, though controversial it might seem, but not to dismiss that perhaps it is a destiny to fit within the context of prophetical events. My inquisitiveness, with its very humble beginnings and all of its twists and turns, brought me to these times and led me to a quest to seek a truth that must be acknowledged. It is the key to avert war and bring about peace. It is the simple inventions in search of that truth that so many are seeking, including me. It is the connection between God and man just as certain as Jesus was His begotten son to serve as the check and balance for the assurance of peace if man chooses. And it is the complete story a metaphor that parallels the troubles of man with the possible outcomes and in congruence with the vigilance of the angels who don't sleep but are paying attention, who will allow peace, lest man bring wrath upon himself. He is the magnet that holds the truth as is the physical magnet that holds that secret, the secret to Finding Free Energy.

Book Short Summary:

An encouraging, inspirational, spirit-filled, and at times, funny book that highlights Tonia's real life-changing experiences. This memoir will take the reader on a military and spiritual journey where Tonia traveled the country as a member of the military, a singer and a dancer. She encountered many bumps in the road, as well as exhilarating experiences. She could not believe she was about to experience her "it" moment, dancing with Bones or getting selected for that prestigious entertainment group, Air Force Tops in Blue. Her journey also entails many adversities and obstacles, but she did not allow them to impede or stifle her plans, hopes and dreams. Instead, she used them as a springboard to catapult her to bigger and greater things, such as getting promoted to Chief Master Sergeant in less than 20 years and living a more peaceful and spirit-filled life. Tonia knew that with God all things are possible and eventually relied on the religious foundations she received as a child. She recognized the joy that can be realized from serving God. She also uses the Trinity Approach, The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost to help her overcome and achieve the victory. In spite of illnesses, divorce, racism, sexual harassment, and verbal abuse, she continues to live her life beyond adversities.

Book Short Summary:

CHALLENGES BUILD CHARACTER “The Lord upholds all those who are FALLING and RAISES UP all those who are bowed down.” (Psalm 145:14 NIV) FALLINGHave you ever felt like you were falling?Have you ever felt like no one was listening and no one cared?Have you ever felt that living was so unbearable that the only way to stop the pain was to end your life?Maybe you are feeling this right now. Years before I accepted Jesus as my Savior, I experienced the most painful, difficult, and darkest time of my life. Things were so unbearable that it took every ounce of energy I had just to survive. I became severely depressed, fell, and hit rock bottom, attempted to commit suicide, and ended up strapped in the Psychiatric Unit. RAISES UP God can raise us up without us even realizing it is happening. God started to raise me up while I was still a patient at the hospital ironically leading a “life changing session”. Shortly after returning home, the Holy Spirit led me to a Christian church which ignited a passion in me to have a relationship with God, study His word and share it with others. God had a plan for me, and He has a plan for you too. Not only did God raise me up but he put it in my heart to write this book and share what I learned. This book is about my testimony as well as others who have fallen through affairs, addiction, divorce, financial difficulties, loss of loved ones, orphanage, and suicide. And beautiful stories of being raised up through family reunions, marriage resolutions, recovered addictions and discovered newfound strengths by having a relationship with God. We want to share with you our stories of God’s goodness and faithfulness. God touched your heart today. There is a story written here that He wants you to read and I pray that you give it a try. God is lovingly waiting to hear back from you.

Book Short Summary:

From the 2005 Pulitzer Prize—winning columnist Connie Schultz comes fresh, clever, insightful commentary on life today: love, politics, social issues, family, and much, much more. In the tradition of Anna Quindlen, Molly Ivins, and Erma Bombeck, but with a distinctive voice and sensibility all her own, Connie Schultz comes out of the heartland of America to get you seeing, feeling, and thinking more deeply about the lives we lead today. “You might spot someone you know in the stories here,” writes Connie. “Maybe you’ll even find a glimpse of yourself. Yes, each of us is unique, but life happens in ways that bind us like Gorilla Glue.” In Life Happens, Connie shares sharp, passionate observations, winning our hearts with personal thoughts on a wide range of topics, from finding love in middle age to the meaning behind her father’s lunch pail, from single motherhood, to who really gets the tips you leave and why as the war in Iraq, race relations, gay marriage, and wwhy women don’t vote. In a more humorous vein, Connie shares her mother’s advice on men (“Don’t marry him until you see how he treats the waitress”) and warns men everywhere against using the dreaded f-word (it’s not the one you think). Along the way, Connie introduces us to the heroic people who populate our world and shows us how just one person can make a difference. Charming, provocative, funny, and perceptive, Life Happens gives us, for the first time, Connie Schultz’s celebrated commentary in one irresistible volume. Life Happens challenges us to be more open and alive to others and to the world around us.
