Book Excerpt :

Kat and Nell Sinclair are headed west—away from the manicured lawns of Maine to the boisterous, booming mining town of Cripple Creek, Colorado to start new lives for themselves as mail-order brides. Aboard the train, romantic dreamer Nell carries a photo of her intended close to her heart and imagines an exciting and love-filled future, while her pragmatic older sister Kat resigns herself to marriage as a duty, not a delight. But when the ladies disembark at the train depot, neither fiancé Patrick Maloney or Judson Archer awaits them with open arms. The well-bred Sinclair sisters find themselves unexpectedly alone in the wild, frontier town—a place where fire threatens to reduce the buildings to rubble, the working women strut the streets, rogues will gamble for the shoes on one’s feet, and God’s grace is found amongst the most unlikely of folks. Two sisters, Two missing misters, A shocking welcome to the wild west that leaves both Kat and Nell Sinclair questioning their dreams­ and the hope for true love.

Book Short Summary:

Love of home life, the intimate moments a family peacefully enjoyed in seclusion, had long been considered a hallmark of English character even before the Victorian era. But the Victorians attached unprecedented importance to domesticity, romanticizing the family in every medium from novels to government reports, to the point where actual families felt anxious and the public developed a fierce appetite for scandal. Here Karen Chase and Michael Levenson explore how intimacy became a spectacle and how this paradox energized Victorian culture between 1835 and 1865. They tell a story of a society continually perfecting the forms of private pleasure and yet forever finding its secrets exposed to view. The friction between the two conditions sparks insightful discussions of authority and sentiment, empire and middle-class politics. The book recovers neglected episodes of this mid-century drama: the adultery trial of Caroline Norton and the Prime Minister, Lord Melbourne; the Bedchamber Crisis of the young Queen Victoria; the Bloomer craze of the 1850s; and Robert Kerr's influential treatise, celebrating the ideal of the English Gentleman's House. The literary representation of household life--in Dickens, Tennyson, Ellis, and Oliphant, among others--is placed in relation to such public spectacles as the Deceased Wife's Sister Bill of 1848, the controversy over divorce in the years 1854-1857, and the triumphant return of Florence Nightingale from the Crimea. These colorful incidents create a telling new portrait of Victorian family life, one that demands a fundamental rethinking of the relation between public and private spheres.

Book Short Summary:

The Arms of God is a love story in which the author weaves together the life stories of the Sisters of St. Mary of Namur from their first call to religious life, to teaching and mission work, to a deeper sense of community during the challenging times that followed Vatican II. As beautifully expressed by Sister Gabriella, Falling in love with God determines if I will get up in the morning; it is the WHY I am moved to do all these things am I called to do . . . it is necessary to continue to remember and cherish our call, to listen again to the language of love, of the first love, of what or Who . . . drew you . . . What gift do I give in return? The Sisters' journey carries them from the early days of Catholic education in Texas, to Africa and the terrible years of the Rawandan genocide, and to carrying God's message today in Fort Worth, Texas. Their intimate stories draw the reader into the Sisters' lives, sharing laughter in one moment and tears in the next. Join these remarkable teachers, nurses, and missionaries as they accomplish the seemingly impossible while following the path God has placed before them. Sister Patricia shares, when you move from believing something to doing something uncomfortable . . . having once done that, then there's a freedom . . . a different way of feeling, a different way of understanding what might need to be done. This is a timely story of love, faith, and freedom that challenges readers to listen for the call of God in their own lives.

Book Short Summary:

This book offers a comprehensive examination of the generations of women who entered religious life in the United States after 1965. It provides up-to-date demographics for women's religious institutes; a summary of canon law locating religious life within the various forms of life in the Church; an analysis of Church documents on religious life; and data on the views of post-Vatican II entrants regarding ministry, identity, prayer, spirituality, the vows, and community. Beginning each chapter with an engaging narrative, the authors explore how different generations of Catholic women first became attracted to vowed religious life and what kinds of religious institutes they were seeking. By analyzing the results of extensive national surveys, the authors systematically examine how the new generations of Sisters differ from previous ones, and what those changes suggest about the future. The book concludes with recommendations for further understanding of generations within religious life and within the Church and society. Because of its breadth and depth, this book will be regarded by scholars, the media, and practitioners as an essential resource for the sociological study of religious life for women in the United States.

Book Short Summary:

A Best Book of the Year: Washington Post, Sun Sentinel From Alafair Burke—New York Times bestselling author of the runaway hit, The Wife— comes another twisty tale of domestic noir. When a prominent Manhattan lawyer is murdered, two estranged sisters—one the dead man’s widow, the other his ex—must set aside mistrust and old resentments ... but can they escape their past? Keep your enemies close and your sister closer. Though Chloe was the younger of the two Taylor sisters, she always seemed to be the one in charge. She was the honor roll student with big dreams and an even bigger work ethic. Nicky—always restless and more than a little reckless—was the opposite of her ambitious little sister. She floated from job to job and man to man, and stayed close to home in Cleveland. For a while, it seemed that both sisters had found happiness. Chloe earned a scholarship to an Ivy League school and moved to New York City, where she landed a coveted publishing job. Nicky married promising young attorney Adam Macintosh and gave birth to a baby boy they named Ethan. The Taylor sisters became virtual strangers. Now, more than fifteen years later, their lives are drastically different—and Chloe is married to Adam. When he’s murdered by an intruder at the couple’s East Hampton beach house, Chloe reluctantly allows her teenage stepson’s biological mother—her estranged sister, Nicky—back into her life. But when the police begin to treat Ethan as a suspect in his father’s death, the two sisters are forced to unite . . . and to confront the truth behind family secrets they have tried to bury in the past.

For many women, a sister is both a devoted friend and a fierce rival.

Book Short Summary:

This textbook helped to define the field of Behavioural Ecology. In this fourth edition the text has been completely revised, with new chapters and many new illustrations and full colour photographs. The theme, once again, is the influence of natural selection on behaviour – an animal's struggle to survive and reproduce by exploiting and competing for resources, avoiding predators, selecting mates and caring for offspring, – and how animal societies reflect both cooperation and conflict among individuals. Stuart A. West has joined as a co-author bringing his own perspectives and work on microbial systems into the book. Written in the same engaging and lucid style as the previous editions, the authors explain the latest theoretical ideas using examples from micro-organisms, invertebrates and vertebrates. There are boxed sections for some topics and marginal notes help guide the reader. The book is essential reading for students of behavioural ecology, animal behaviour and evolutionary biology. Key Features: Long-awaited new edition of a field-defining textbook New chapters, illustrations and colour photographs New co-author Focuses on the influence of natural selection on behavior, and how animal societies reflect both cooperation and conflict among individuals “The long-awaited update to a classic in this field is now here, presenting new directions in thinking and addressing burning questions. Richly informed by progress in many other disciplines, such as sensory physiology, genetics and evolutionary theory, it marks the emergence of behavioural ecology as a fully fledged discipline..... This is a marvellous book, written in a lucid style. A must-read for those in the field, it is also a cornucopia of new thinking for anyone interested in evolution and behaviour.” Manfred Milinski, Nature, 2012

Book Short Summary:

The personal papers of one of feminism’s most passionate leaders, with a new preface by the author As an activist for social justice, Robin Morgan has acquired a reputation for strong convictions and a life-affirming way of expressing them through writing. Nowhere is this more evident than in Going Too Far, which takes us behind the scenes in Morgan’s life and in the women’s movement until 1977. We watch the development of an organizer who is a complex thinker while Morgan evolves as a mother, leader, writer, and activist. Morgan’s keen eye is trained on all aspects of modern feminism, and this is reflected in the juxtaposition of the journal entries and letters of her personal life with the essays and polemics that shape her public persona. Her opinions on marriage, love, religion, pornography, and art are as utterly fresh and timely today as they were decades ago. Her growing wisdom and depth of perception are apparent in the book’s progression, and her last chapters, focused on what she terms the “metaphysics of feminism,” will change a reader’s world view for the better—and forever.

Book Short Summary:

Inside this book, you will find more than just poetry. You will find another point of view from my own perspective of life and death. As I have heard before, death is only the beginning. So why do people fear death? Are we that afraid to trust in Jesus, or is it that we don’t like new beginnings? Writing this book is my testament of the faith that I have in God. Jesus still wants me to live to tell my whole story. He is continuing to live within me, and I will never give up on my life until He wants me to come home and complete the final chapter of my living on this earth. My reward is in heaven, not here on earth.

Book Short Summary:

Natalie and Joseph Reyes have everything any young couple could desire—a loving marriage, children together, wealth, and enterprise. But the demands of a controlling mother-in-law and her husband’s unaccounted hours spent in places unknown to Natalie threaten to drive a wedge between them. With dwindling trust in her beloved, accompanied by mysterious symptoms within her body, Natalie agonizes like a single mother within her marriage. Relatives who witness Natalie’s faith can only wish for her problems. A dishonorable past and faithless tendencies threaten to shatter the love between Shasta and Javier Reyes. Unaware to all their family, a violent face-off occurs when Natalie’s psychotic cousin torments and imprisons two serial killers attempting to kidnap her. Cousin Tiphany Taylor hopes to marry the wealthy father of her children until reality forces her to make a heart-wrenching decision about their lives together. Alicia Reyes goes on a manhunt for her meddling widowed mother and finds a homeless man to groom for the mission. The shattering worlds of the prominent Reyes and Taylor families blend as a distractive force against the couple, who married from each family. Surrounded by everyone else’s drama, Natalie and Joseph rarely find time to strengthen what she sees as a starving marriage.

Book Short Summary:

“Children have the right to be happy. So God sent me to help them.” —Sister Maria Rosa Leggol In Tegucigalpa, the capital city of Honduras, in 1966, a short, plump, middle-aged Catholic nun was hot on the heels of the richest man in the country. Sister María Rosa Leggol, a hospital nurse with a fifth-grade education, had no money, no social standing, no clout. What she did have was the audacity to ask big favors of powerful men and the unwavering conviction that her dream—to rescue, house, and educate street children—was sanctioned by God. She also had the gall to think she could stop the man’s airplane from taking off. The help she received that day triggered a dramatic chain of events resulting in the rescue and education of tens of thousands of destitute children in the second-poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Through her network of children’s villages, schools, farms, clinics, vocational training centers, and microbusinesses, this indomitable nun empowered poor Hondurans to live, grow, and work with dignity. Madre is a celebration of a fearless woman’s great goodness, charisma, and chutzpah in challenging corruption and machismo to break generational cycles of poverty. Writer and mission trip leader Kathy Martin O’Neil sets the unlikely triumphs of this “Angel of the Poor” against the backdrop of Honduras’s deprivation, broken families, and gang violence that send desperate young migrants fleeing for their lives. Drawing from more than a decade of mission travel to SAN, she captures Sister Maria Rosa’s magnetic allure and Franciscan wisdom on how best to change hearts and stand with the marginalized people of the world. Cardinal Óscar Andrés Rodriguez of Honduras, who is advancing her cause for sainthood, introduces his friend, Sister María Rosa Leggol, in a beautiful Foreword.

Book Short Summary:

PULITZER PRIZE WINNER • A “vivid and devastating” (The New York Times) portrait of an indomitable girl—from acclaimed journalist Andrea Elliott “From its first indelible pages to its rich and startling conclusion, Invisible Child had me, by turns, stricken, inspired, outraged, illuminated, in tears, and hungering for reimmersion in its Dickensian depths.”—Ayad Akhtar, author of Homeland Elegies ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: The New York Times • ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: The Atlantic, The New York Times Book Review, Time, NPR, Library Journal In Invisible Child, Pulitzer Prize winner Andrea Elliott follows eight dramatic years in the life of Dasani, a girl whose imagination is as soaring as the skyscrapers near her Brooklyn shelter. In this sweeping narrative, Elliott weaves the story of Dasani’s childhood with the history of her ancestors, tracing their passage from slavery to the Great Migration north. As Dasani comes of age, New York City’s homeless crisis has exploded, deepening the chasm between rich and poor. She must guide her siblings through a world riddled by hunger, violence, racism, drug addiction, and the threat of foster care. Out on the street, Dasani becomes a fierce fighter “to protect those who I love.” When she finally escapes city life to enroll in a boarding school, she faces an impossible question: What if leaving poverty means abandoning your family, and yourself? A work of luminous and riveting prose, Elliott’s Invisible Child reads like a page-turning novel. It is an astonishing story about the power of resilience, the importance of family and the cost of inequality—told through the crucible of one remarkable girl. Winner of the J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize • Finalist for the Bernstein Award and the PEN/John Kenneth Galbraith Award

Book Short Summary:

When Laura Wilson dies at the age of ninety, her caregiver discovers a key that does much more than unlock a beautiful Oriental chest. It unlocks a door to Laura's tangled past-a life replete with joys, sorrows, and surprises. Advance Praise for Laura's Lullaby "Laura's Lullaby is rich in local color, character, and theme. The story includes a secret and a memorably touching turn of events. Laura is the distant, eccentric auntie about whose life you only thought you knew. An authentically 'good read'." -Gary Townsend, Idaho Writers League "The simple style of Laura's Lullaby illustrates to the reader through deep insights that every life has its disappointments, its triumphs, and in the end, its redemption. Laura's Lullaby leads one to wonder how many humble, unassuming people there are among us whose stories are never told." -Karen A. Jeppsen, B.M., BYU; grandmother of fourteen "In Laura's Lullaby, the reader peers through a kaleidoscope, glimpsing the personality of one charming senior citizen from beginning to end. As the layers peel back to reveal her desires, passions, and tender experiences, Laura's story becomes a fascinating study of the idiosyncrasies that makes one person unique." -Polly O. Strobelt, geriatric registered nurse
