1966 Pontiac GTO: Muscle Cars In Detail No. 13 av David Bonaskiewich (CarTech Books)

Beskrivning: Pontiac's GTO is often credited as being the first muscle car. As model year 1966 ended, an astounding 96,946 GTOs traversed Pontiac assembly lines, which set a high-water mark that would cement the GOAT as the most salable muscle car that was produced during the golden age of performance. Author David Bonaskiewich examines this model year in precise detail, taking into account every cosmetic change and optional hardware that warranted this sales boom. The Coke-bottle styling for the remodeled GTO certainly tipped the scales for some consumers. However, as they say, "The devil is in the details."This book delves into those details, showcasing the vast array of optional equipment across its three bodystyles (hardtop, sports coupe, and convertible). Thorough examinations of the drivetrain, interior, suspension, brakes, and wheels and tires are exhaustive, which unveils exactly why the 1966 GTO was the most successful muscle car ever assembled. Tune up those Tri-Power carburetors, turn on your favorite tune, and twist the key with 1966 Pontiac GTO: In Detail!

How to Vinyl Wrap Cars, Trucks, & Motorcycles av Tyler Copenhaver-Heath (CarTech Books)

Beskrivning: Learn to vinyl wrap your automobile and achieve professional results!Wrapping a vehicle in vinyl is a fairly modern concept. In the mid-1990s, German taxis were wrapped to preserve paint. NASCAR followed suit by wrapping its race cars as more primary sponsors came into the sport, which forged a need for quick turnaround times because paint was slow to dry. As vinyl costs decreased, the private sector began to emulate these practices, which created the vinyl-wrapped automobile option that is now available for anyone. CarTech, in conjunction with Apex Customs, brings forth the most modern publication on vinyl wrapping with How to Vinyl Wrap Cars, Trucks, & Motorcycles, which is easy to follow and heavily illustrated. Outlined in this book are the benefits of wrapping, the science of wrap, vinyl graphics applications, and the tools of the trade. The majority of this book features techniques to wrap a vehicle from start to finish. Installation techniques, such as measuring, cutting, applying heat, trimming, laying, tucking, and post-heat treatment are covered through illustrations. Troubleshooting help is included for bubbles, tears/rips, peeling, wrinkles, and cracking. Every component of a vehicle from the grille to the rear bumper is wrapped and featured in vivid detail. Why spend tens of thousands of dollars on paint when you can change your car’s appearance year after year for a fraction of the cost? How to Vinyl Wrap Cars, Trucks, & Motorcycles will have your ride looking professionally wrapped and the talk of the show.

Jeep Wrangler JL and Gladiator JT: Performance Modifications av Don Alexander (CarTech Books)

Beskrivning: Learn your modification options for the most modern and exciting Jeeps!Going back to World War II, Jeeps have had a special place in America’s heart. The utility vehicle that helped win the war transitioned into the civilian Jeep, or CJ, and the Jeep brand has had several owners over the years. While still remaining wildly popular, it has evolved. The Wrangler version of the Jeep was transformed with the release of the JK for the 2007 model year. With a more practical 4-door version, this Wrangler became a popular vehicle for year-round use, which appealed to off-roaders as well as soccer moms. For the 2017 model year, Jeep seriously upgraded the Wrangler, which is now dubbed the JL, and added an exciting new model, the Gladiator, or JT, which is essentially a pickup version of the Wrangler. In Jeep Wrangler JL and Gladiator JT: Performance Modifications, Jeep experts Don Alexander and Quinn Thomas introduce you to these new models and walk you through the capabilities and options for all of the trim levels. Then, they examine how to make these things better, system by system. Suspension, steering, and brakes are covered, as they are the heart of any off-road rig. Also examined are modification options for axles, driveshafts, and differentials as well as bumpers, armor, and protection. Of course, off-roaders need a quality winch, recovery gear, and upgraded electrics, so options are explored here as well. Wheels and tires are also very important for those leaving paved roads, and upgrade options for all of the trim levels and lift levels are covered thoroughly. Whether you want to build a JL or JT to be a serious rock crawler or simply look like you are going off-road, all of your options are thoroughly explained in this book. Add a copy to your Jeep reference library.

Monsters: A Reckoning av Alison Croggon (Scribe Publications)

Beskrivning: A hybrid of memoir and essay from award-winning writer and critic Alison Croggon.

“I was born as part of a monstrous structure—the grotesque, hideous, ugly, ghastly, gruesome, horrible relations of power that constituted colonial Britain. A structure that shaped me, that shapes the very language that I speak and use and love. I am the daughter of an empire that declared itself the natural order of the world.”

From award-winning writer and critic Alison Croggon, Monsters is a hybrid of memoir and essay that takes as its point of departure the painful breakdown of a relationship between two sisters.

It explores how our attitudes are shaped by the persisting myths that underpin colonialism and patriarchy, how the structures we are raised within splinter and distort the possibilities of our lives and the lives of others.

Monsters asks how we maintain the fictions that we create about ourselves, what we will sacrifice to maintain these fictions—and what we have to gain by confronting them.

The Ghost in the Garden: In Search of Darwin's Lost Garden av Jude Piesse (Scribe Publications)

Beskrivning: The forgotten garden that inspired Charles Darwin becomes the modern-day setting for an exploration of memory, family, and the legacy of genius.

Darwin never stopped thinking about the garden at his childhood home, The Mount, in Shrewsbury, Shropshire. It was here, under the tutelage of his green-fingered mother and sisters, that he first examined the reproductive life of flowers, collected birds’ eggs, and began the experiments that would lead to his theory of evolution.

A century and a half later, with one small child in tow and another on the way, Jude Piesse finds herself living next door to this secret garden. Two acres of the original site remain, now resplendent with overgrown ashes, sycamores, and hollies. The carefully tended beds and circular flower garden are buried under suburban housing; the hothouses where the Darwins and their skillful gardeners grew pineapples are long gone. Walking the pathways with her new baby, Piesse starts to discover what impact the garden and the people who tended it had on Darwin’s work.

Blending biography, nature writing, and memoir, The Ghost in the Garden traces the origins of the theory of evolution and uncovers the lost histories that inspired it, ultimately evoking the interconnectedness of all things.

A Dragon Used to Live Here av Annette LeBlanc Cate (Candlewick Press)

Beskrivning: Noble children Thomas and Emily have always known their mother to be sensible, the lady of the castle—if anything, a bit boring. But then they discover Meg, a cranky scribe who lives in the castle basement, leading a quirky group of artists in producing party invitations and other missives for the nobles above. Meg claims that she was a friend of their mother’s back when the two were kids—even before the dragon lived in the castle. Wait—a dragon? Not sure they can believe Meg’s tales, the kids return again and again to hear the evolving, fantastical story of their mother’s escapades (while putting their fussiest penmanship to work) and get caught up in a quest to reunite the onetime friends.

Cress Watercress av Gregory Maguire (Candlewick Press)

Beskrivning: Gregory Maguire turns his trademark wit and wisdom to an animal adventure about growing up, moving on, and finding community. When Papa doesn't return from a nocturnal honey-gathering expedition, Cress holds out hope, but her mother assumes the worst. It’s a dangerous world for rabbits, after all. Mama moves what’s left of the Watercress family to the basement unit of the Broken Arms, a run-down apartment oak with a suspect owl landlord, a nosy mouse super, a rowdy family of squirrels, and a pair of songbirds who broadcast everyone’s business. Can a dead tree full of annoying neighbors, and no Papa, ever be home? In the timeless spirit of E. B. White and The Wind and the Willows—yet thoroughly of its time—this read-aloud and read-alone gem for animal lovers of all ages features an unforgettable cast that leaps off the page in glowing illustrations by David Litchfield. This tender meditation on coming-of-age invites us to flourish wherever we find ourselves.

In 1668, fifteen-year-old Kemosha is sold by a slave owner to a tavern keeper in Port Royal, Jamaica—the “wickedest city on earth.” She soon flees from a brutal assault and finds herself in the company of a free Black man, Ravenhide, who offers her shelter and shows her a path to freedom.

As her swashbuckling legend grows, she realizes she has the power to win freedom not just for herself, but for her kin and her soul mate Isabella as well—but not without paying a terrible price . . . Kemosha of the Caribbean enlightens as it entertains, bringing 17th-century Jamaica to life and creating an unforgettable heroine for all ages.

Paris Noir: The Suburbs av Hervé Delouche (Akashic Books)

Beskrivning: From the introduction by Hervé Delouche:

The term “Greater Paris” is in vogue today, for it has an administrative cachet and seems to denote a simple extension of the capital—as if a ravenous Paris need only extend her web. However, it was not our goal to embrace the tenets of the metro area’s comprehensive plan, aka the Grand Projet, envisioned as a future El Dorado by the planners and developers. Rather, our aim was to depict the Parisian suburbs in all their plurality and diversity, as illustrated by the stories in this collection. Without pretending to encompass every spot on the map, we instead opted to give voice and exposure to the localities chosen by the writers who have been part of this adventure. Thus, we decided to adopt the word “suburbs”—in the plural, obviously, for the periphery of the capital is not a homogeneous block, nor is it reducible to a cliché like “the suburban ring” . . .

In 1992, in the publication Gulliver, created by Michel Le Bris in the spirit of the Étonnants Voyageurs literary festival, the late Jean-Bernard Pouy, a longtime resident of Ivry, offered up a story, “Transports en particuliers,” in which he wrote, “And perhaps the love of the suburbs persists, thanks to those who knew them before, that is to say, before they became bedroom communities, when the smallish cities all around Paris still operated as the ‘Red Belt,’ preventing the huge, blubbery stomach of Paris from spilling over into the countryside. But it’s surely true that everyone now living there is in search of new myths and that the housing projects will inspire as many colorful tales as the detached homes or vacant tracts of yesteryear.” Here are thirteen such stories, decidedly noir, to be savored without sugar or sweetener.

The Last Mapmaker av Christina Soontornvat (Candlewick Press)

Beskrivning: In a fantasy adventure every bit as compelling and confident in its world building as her Newbery Honor Book A Wish in the Dark, Christina Soontornvat explores a young woman’s struggle to unburden herself of the past and chart her own destiny in a world of secrets. As assistant to Mangkon’s most celebrated mapmaker, twelve-year-old Sai plays the part of a well-bred young lady with a glittering future. In reality, her father is a conman—and in a kingdom where the status of one’s ancestors dictates their social position, the truth could ruin her. Sai seizes the chance to join an expedition to chart the southern seas, but she isn’t the only one aboard with secrets. When Sai learns that the ship might be heading for the fabled Sunderlands—a land of dragons, dangers, and riches beyond imagining—she must weigh the cost of her dreams. Vivid, suspenseful, and thought-provoking, this tale of identity and integrity is as beautiful and intricate as the maps of old.

The Lucky Ones av Linda Williams Jackson (Candlewick Press)

Beskrivning: It’s 1967, and eleven-year-old Ellis Earl Brown has big dreams. He’s going to grow up to be a teacher or a lawyer—or maybe both—and live in a big brick house in town. There’ll always be enough food in the icebox, and his mama won’t have to run herself ragged looking for work as a maid in order to support Ellis Earl and his eight siblings and niece, Vera. So Ellis Earl applies himself at school, soaking up the lessons that Mr. Foster teaches his class—particularly those about famous colored people like Mr. Thurgood Marshall and Miss Marian Wright—and borrowing books from his teacher’s bookshelf. When Mr. Foster presents him with a copy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Ellis Earl is amazed to encounter a family that’s even worse off than his own—and is delighted by the Buckets’ very happy ending. But when Mama tells Ellis Earl that he might need to quit school to help support the family, he wonders if happy endings are only possible in storybooks. Around the historical touchstone of Robert Kennedy’s southern “poverty tour,” Linda Williams Jackson pulls from her own childhood in the Mississippi Delta to tell a detail-rich and poignant story with memorable characters, sure to resonate with readers who have ever felt constricted by their circumstances.

Beskrivning: Fished from the river as an infant and raised by a roving band of street urchins who call themselves the Crowns, eight-year-old Duck keeps her head down and her mouth shut. It’s a rollicking life, always thieving, always on the run—until the ragtag Crowns infiltrate an abandoned cathedral in the city of Odierne and decide to set down roots.

But no sooner is Duck apprenticed to the kindly Griselde than Duck’s allegiances start to blur. Who is she really—a Crown or an apprentice baker? And who does she want to be?

Told in alternating viewpoints, this exquisite novel evokes a timeless tale of love, self-discovery, and what it means to be rescued.

The Sisters Mao av Gavin McCrea (Scribe Publications)

Beskrivning: Against the backdrop of China’s Cultural Revolution and Europe’s sexual revolution, the fates of two families in London and Beijing become unexpectedly intertwined, in this dazzling new novel from the author of Mrs. Engels.

Revolution is a Family Affair.

In London, sisters Iris and Eva, members of a radical performance collective, plan an attack on the West End theater where their mother is playing the title role in Miss Julie. Meanwhile in Beijing, Jiang Qing, Chairman Mao’s wife, rehearses a gala performance of her model ballet, "The Red Detachment of Women," which she will use in order to attack her enemies in the Party.

As the preparations for these two astonishing performances unfold, Iris, Eva, and Jiang Qing are transformed into unforgettable protagonists in a single epic drama. The three "sisters," although fighting very different personal battles, find themselves bound together by the passions of love, by the obsessions of power, and by the forces of history.

Exquisitely observed, relevant, and wise, The Sisters Mao shows us that the political is always personal.

Lorraine Hansberry: The Life Behind A Raisin in the Sun av Charles Shields (Henry Holt and Company)

Beskrivning: The moving story of the life of the woman behind A Raisin in the Sun, the most widely anthologized, read, and performed play of the American stage, by the New York Times bestselling author of Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee

Written when she was just twenty-eight, Lorraine Hansberry’s landmark A Raisin in the Sun is listed by the National Theatre as one of the hundred most significant works of the twentieth century. Hansberry was the first Black woman to have a play performed on Broadway, and the first Black and youngest American playwright to win a New York Critics’ Circle Award.

Charles J. Shields’s authoritative biography of one of the twentieth century’s most admired playwrights examines the parts of Lorraine Hansberry’s life that have escaped public knowledge: the influence of her upper-class background, her fight for peace and nuclear disarmament, the reason why she embraced Communism during the Cold War, and her dependence on her white husband—her best friend, critic, and promoter. Many of the identity issues about class, sexuality, and race that she struggled with are relevant and urgent today.

This dramatic telling of a passionate life—a very American life through self-reinvention—uses previously unpublished interviews with close friends in politics and theater, privately held correspondence, and deep research to reconcile old mysteries and raise new questions about a life not fully described until now.

Raising Humans with Heart: Not a How-To Manual av Sarah MacLaughlin (Isabella Media Inc)

Beskrivning: Becoming a parent is a seismic shift. For most, that sparkling newborn rocks your world with their smooth skin and fuzzy head you just can’t stop sniffing. But as soon as you get the hang of caring for them, they change! Soon enough they are three years old and screaming in what seems like ACTUAL pain that they have to wear clothing (the nerve!). Then comes the hard eye rolls and sarcasm in 4th grade. And eventually a teenager who can outright refuse to do something. What then?

Alternating yelling and ignoring gets you nowhere and the authoritarian approach isn’t working. You know what NOT to do, but what TO do?

This book brings what’s important into focus: who you are as a person and parent, and how that affects your relationships with children. What if self-awareness and personal development were the ways to improve your family life? It is possible that building emotional intelligence and self-regulation skills will create a more peaceful home. Maybe we need to move beyond self-care into self-advocacy! And sometimes a reminder about child development or a tip about communication will shift the dynamic and help you get out of your own way. When we get out of our heads and into OUR hearts, it becomes clear how to best interact with children: with love and compassion. Our intentions and behavior towards our children can help them grow up with heart; the big hearts that the world needs right now.

Seasons of Purgatory av Shahriar Mandanipour (Bellevue Literary Press)

Beskrivning: The first English-language story collection from “one of Iran’s most important living fiction writers” (Guardian)

In Seasons of Purgatory, the fantastical and the visceral merge in tales of tender desire and collective violence, the boredom and brutality of war, and the clash of modern urban life and rural traditions. Mandanipour, banned from publication in his native Iran, vividly renders the individual consciousness in extremis from a variety of perspectives: young and old, man and woman, conscript and prisoner. While delivering a ferocious social critique, these stories are steeped in the poetry and stark beauty of an ancient land and culture.

“While the turmoil and danger of everyday life in Iran are the backdrop, Mandanipour focuses on the personal struggles of the characters and their hardscrabble lives. . . . These haunting, urgent works are as nuanced and provocative as the lives they depict.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Dostoyevskian in their density and black humor, Mandanipour’s stories capture the Iranian experience of constant upheaval in a brilliant translation that allows the English-speaking world to experience this gem of Iranian literature.” —Booklist

Sugaring Down av Dan Chodorkoff (Rootstock Publishing)

Beskrivning: The year is 1968 and idealistic anti-war activists David and Jill, hoping to refocus their efforts to build a new society, have moved to an abandoned hill farm in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom to start a commune. Joined by a rotating cast of committed activists and fair-weather freeloaders alike, David and Jill are confronted by the harsh environment of northern Vermont, where they discover the complexities of country life, make connections with their new neighbors (good and bad), and struggle to find their place until the fissures blowing apart the larger anti-war movement reach their collective at Zion Farm. Sugaring Down burrows below the surface of the sixties counterculture and the New Left to explore the contradictions and passions that lead to the implosion of the protagonists’ dreams and their turns down two very different paths.

Sugaring Down is an evocative and reflective story that examines the dynamics of social change, the violent flux of opposing political systems, and the history and nature of Vermont.

365 Days of Covid: A Poetry Anthology av Rebecca Rijsdijk (Sunday Mornings at the River)

Sometimes, big things happen. So big, that we don’t even dare name them. We refer to moments instead. The day of. The night before. The morning after. We all hoped that 2021 would be The Year After.

But wherever tears and shivers prevail, poetry sweeps in, acting as our tissues and blankets, knitted together by poets from lock downed rooms around the world. We gathered these poems in our Anthology. Together, they form a quilt of virus vignettes. It shows the horripilating nights of healthcare workers and sterile goodbyes via Zoom. It shows being infected, losing your senses, and struggling to breathe. In other words: it shows COVID-19 as it was.

With this Anthology, we hope to honour essential workers worldwide. We hope to draw attention to their importance. To their value. To the gruelling scenes they encounter and survive. We hope to give them more than applause — recognition, appreciation, and our gratitude.

Catalysts for Change: How Nonprofits and a Foundation Are Helping Shape Vermont's Future av Doug Wilhelm (Rootstock Publishing)

Beskrivning: How can responsible and local journalism survive? How do we shift to a clean energy economy? How can we save major lakes from dangerous nutrient pollution?

Supported by an activist family foundation and often working closely with it, Vermont nonprofits have played vital roles in making positive progress on these and other complex challenges. The stories in Catalysts for Change tell what these partnerships have achieved, and how.

Highly readable, informative, and inspiring, Catalysts for Change begins with Claire Malcolm’s jarring experience as a newly trained nurse witnessing unsafe childbirth practices among the poor in China, where she lived and worked for nearly half a century. Widowed and living in Vermont later in life, Claire created the Lintilhac Foundation to help bring nurse-midwifery back into the American healthcare system, in Vermont's largest hospital. Over the decades since Claire’s passing in 1984, the foundation, run by her daughter-in-law and son, has expanded its focus to support and work closely with nonprofits in maternal and child health, responsible journalism, water quality, land conservation, and clean energy.

The story of the Lintilhac Foundation is a rewarding one—both for everyone who cares about Vermont and for philanthropies across the country that are seeking new models for how they can play a more engaged role in their communities.

Like A Complete Unknown av Anara Guard (New Wind Publishing)

Beskrivning: A runaway teen on the streets of Chicago faces certain risks.
Dr. Robert Lewis knows this only too well from his years of running a women’s clinic.
Katya Warshawsky is about to find out.
In 1969, a girl’s life is not her own. Katya’s parents demand she drop out of school to join a cleaning crew. She runs away instead—but the counterculture isn’t as welcoming as she dreamed. Starry-eyed, barefoot, and in trouble, she turns to the widowed doctor at his women’s clinic for help, then disappears again. The aging doctor’s rash impulse to save her could rejuvenate his melancholy life. While Katya hunts for freedom and Robert searches for her, they each encounter beauty and chaos as they brave the unknown. A compelling and evocative portrait that speaks to our own complex social times.

Power, Passion, and Faith: Emmy Carlsson Evald, Suffragist and Social Activist av Sharon M. Wyman (Transformation Media Books)

Beskrivning: It is the morning of July 1, 1938, and New York City is just beginning to stir. For Emmy Evald, it is a day of reckoning.

Born the daughter of a pioneer preacher in 1857 in Geneva, Illinois, Emmy Evald grew up in the poor section of Chicago known as “Swede Town.” Despite her humble beginnings, she became one of the most influential and remarkable Swedish American women of her day.

Emmy began challenging the male-dominated church and social mores early on. Clear in her vision, she established the Lutheran Woman’s Missionary Society in 1892, raising more than $3 million, which provided health care and education to women worldwide.

A distinguished orator, Emmy led the charge on behalf of women’s suffrage and marched with Susan B. Anthony to the US Congress in 1902.

Her actions met with both victory and defeat. Some women felt a woman’s place was in the home and resented her. Men tried to silence her spirit. But she was a “force to be reckoned with,” one who never gave up on the fight for women’s rights and social justice.

Detta är en e-bok.

Beskrivning: I know how to fix broken things. I’m one of Earth’s top engineers. But a sexy Rhonar warrior with a scarred past? That may be a challenge even for me.

An explosion on the moonbase has me careening into space. If it weren’t for the hot alien pilot Brokdar, I’d still be floating amongst the debris. But now, we’ve been sucked through a wormhole to an unknown planet.

We’ll have to rely on each other to survive. But with his barred emotions and tight-lipped demeanor, I don’t know how to break down his walls—even if the chemistry between us is set to ignite.

If we don’t work together, we’ll never make it off this remote rock.
I need to get home. My sister and best friend were caught in the blast. I don’t even know if they made it out alive. I must know.

And if I don’t make it back, no one will warn the Rhonar about the looming threat. Will the alliance between the alien warriors and Earth break before it’s even begun? And if it does, how will I ever be with this alien who’s slowly stealing my heart?

Only the stars know.

Alien’s Mate is a sci-fi romance and book two in the Earth Brides and Alien Warriors series, but it can be read as a standalone. Will they find their brides? Steamy seduction, fated mates, and a HEA guaranteed.

Another Day, Another Partner av Rachel Mucha (City Owl Press)

Detta är en e-bok.

Beskrivning: Officer Luciana "Lulu" Martinelli prefers to work alone. Who wouldn’t, after falling in love with their partner, only to have him up and leave? Unfortunately, her captain, who’s also her father, is determined to pair her with someone. His latest recruit, former Boston detective Dominic Delgado, is turning out to be harder to shake than the others. Dom’s as talented at his job as he is gorgeous, and the worst part is...he knows it.

Lulu can’t understand why a big-city cop would want to work for a small Rhode Island police department—until he’s brutally attacked after his first day on the job. Dom didn't exactly give up his old life by choice, and some pretty terrifying bad guys want him dead. Things only get stickier when Lulu's ex-boyfriend Rob resurfaces with a far-fetched explanation for leaving her, and an interesting connection to Dom.

Forced to team up with the man who shattered her heart, her dangerously charming new partner, and even her bored teenage sister home on summer break, Lulu discovers her little town isn't as crime-free as she thought — and that maybe, just maybe, having a partner to watch her back isn't the worst thing in the world.

Deceived by Ornament (Kim Brady, #2) av Edward J. Leahy (Black Rose Writing)

Detta är en e-bok.

The only eyewitness, Amara, a fifteen-year-old undocumented escapee from a human trafficking ring, has described the killer as wearing a police uniform.

Saddled with a partner who is an unqualified rookie cop forced on her unit by a local state senator with mayoral aspirations, Kim's investigation is micromanaged from above. She soon finds herself in a maelstrom of competing jurisdictions and interests as she struggles to determine if the killer is a cop or an imposter, whether he is a serial killer or part of a larger domestic terrorist plot.

When she discovers that a close friend of the victim in the cold case, Rafer Harwood, is part of an anti-immigrant militia suspected of planning a major terror event, she can explain the second murder but not the first. She must protect Amara and find both the killer and the real leader of the militia.

From a traditional village embraced by the Mediterranean Sea to Boston’s North End, the sisters embark on distinctly different roads in pursuit of love, opportunity and purpose. How can they remain true to themselves, their calling, their faith, one another and their culture midst a world at war and the personal battle waged within their own families? Betrayal tests the exceptional bond of the two sisters torn apart by the overreaching arms of control, desire and greed.

Short, Vigorous Roots: A Contemporary Flash Fiction Collection of Migrant Voices av Mark Budman (Ooligan Press)

Detta är en e-bok.

Beskrivning: eBook format is .pdf
This flash fiction anthology examines the experiences of being a transplant in a foreign land and looks critically at what it means to forsake tongues, traditions, and comforts in the hope of starting a new life in another world. These stories push readers to expand their understanding of the world beyond their own front doors.

The collection contains forty affecting works written by several multigenerational immigrant authors from countries around the world, including Bosnia-Herzegovina, Brazil, China, Cuba, England, Finland, Germany, Greece, India, Israel, Italy, Lebanon, Mexico, Moldavia, Morocco, the Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Ukraine, the United States, and Vietnam. Regardless of their origin, all share the experience of putting down roots in new soil and examining how adapting to new lives and lands impacts the characters’ understanding of themselves and their community. The stories are organized into four parts, "Past the Limits of the Familiar," "The Change is Slow," "Inheriting the Earth," and "Tired of Waiting for Home."

    Love and Genetics: A True Story of Adoption, Surrogacy, and the Meaning of Family av Mark MacDonald (Unsolicited Press)

    Detta är en e-bok.

    Beskrivning: When a family secret comes to light, lives are changed forever in this honest, beautiful, and sometimes painful memoir. When Mark, adopted at birth, set out to FIND his genetic family as an adult, he found something he never expected—three full-blood siblings, including a persistent sister who would alter the course of his life. He finds himself faced with the emotional task of coming to know his entire birth family, along with the unintended impact it has on his parents and his marriage. This raises age-old questions around the understanding of his own identity and his place in the world—now framed in extraordinarily real and explicit terms: What defines family? Nature or nurture? Life rarely affords such an opportunity for self-examination.

    The story focuses on the relationship that develops between Mark and his sister, Rachel, as they discover each other through constant letters and eventual face-to-face meetings. When Rachel learns that Mark and his wife are struggling with having children, a radical idea takes over—could she, a sister he never knew and still barely knows, one who lives on the other side of the country, possibly carry their child? Would they trust her to? Including original correspondence between Rachel, Mark, and their biological mother, Marilyn, Love & Genetics follows the events of a tumultuous year in an astonishing story of love, loss, and the meaning of family.

    Second Chance: A Kidney Between Us av Tina Shyver-Plank (TouchPoint Faith)

    Detta är en e-bok.

    Beskrivning: The true story of a living kidney donor and recipient’s unbreakable bond

    Imagine suffering with an unrelenting disease your whole life, only to be rescued by a childhood friend, a relative who wants to be a conduit for healing no matter what. Both individuals struggle with life but in vastly different ways—Ironically, Tina wants to die, even though she lives, and Brian wants to live, even though he dies. They come together to experience a miracle of God through the kidney that unites them. Brian lives nine extra years, dying of diabetic complications, not kidney failure. The doctors exclaim that the kidney is still completely viable at death.

    Meet small-town writer Tina Shyver-Plank, who penned this compelling memoir about her gift of a kidney to her dying cousin, Brian Shyver, who has juvenile-onset type 1 diabetes from the age six years old. She is depressed and finds life painful, while he fights ardently with every step to survive.

    After the donation, Brian gets a fire in his spirit for religion, and Tina finds the strength to live. You will cry with them, and you will laugh with them on their inspiring journey through life together, apart, and together again. It's a complex interplay of ups and downs, as the donation and their lives make an indelible mark on countless others.

    “Since the struggles in life build character,” as Tina often puts it, you will come to understand that these two individuals grow up fast and offer a prayer of thanks to the God whom made them. SECOND CHANCE is an uplifting memoir that will move the spirit and immerse the soul in the nuances of life. This cathartic story ushers the reader into a kaleidoscope of experiences, both riveting and triumphant.

    Fish! av Ida Keogh (NewCon Press)

    Detta är en e-bok.

    Beskrivning: How does the government react when confronted with a vast influx of displaced people fleeing the horror of war? It's a dilemma that tests both resources and humanitarian commitment to the limit, but in the end will it be compassion or self-interest that prevails?

    When a previously unsuspected race of Merfolk start to appear on our shores seeking respite, seeking safety, seeking asylum, how will humanity respond?

    Ida Keogh, the 2021 winner of the BSFA Award for best short fiction and the British Fantasy Award for best short fiction, creates an all too believable tomorrow, one that never shies away from major issues. In this gripping novella told from multiple viewpoints, the reader is shown the full gamut of human reactions; by holding us close to each narrator, the author tells a story of grand scale in a very intimate, personal way.

    FISH! is a tale of intolerance and exploitation, but also of compassion and sympathy, of rigid official policy offset by the warmth of human empathy. It is a story of prejudice and hatred, but also of understanding and love. A big story in a small book, above all this is a story of wonder.

    FISH! is available as a mobi, epub or pdf.

    Momma, Can You Hear Me? av Ty Keenum (TouchPoint Press)

    Detta är en e-bok.

    Beskrivning: Families are our greatest source of refuge, even though we sometimes need to seek refuge from them.

    Bud was certain that if the leaves fell in the fall, his Bulldogs would valiantly take the gridiron and make him proud. He was equally as certain that his maternal family meant him harm, physically and emotionally. Even though he had learned at an early age that family was not a team sport, this last series of events threatened Bud’s relationships with the people he cared about the most—his own family.

    Detta är en e-bok.

    Beskrivning: Chaos followed the untimely end of Princess Kylee’s marriage to Prince Maju. Although Queen Miyako is too worried about her missing daughter’s safety to blame her for what happened, she has no problem blaming Taren Platinum. When a recording device containing diary entries is found in the princess’s room, the queen begins to question if she’s been wrong this whole time.

    Jael wants nothing more than to return to her family but Taren gave her an assignment to take care of the kids, and she won’t let him down. When she runs into some McNair henchmen who are intent on avenging their fallen leader, the kids are caught in the crossfire.

    The Ascension of Mary av William West (TouchPoint Press)

    Detta är en e-bok.

    Beskrivning: The Ascension of Mary tells the story of Mary Hester, a 14-year-old violin prodigy, who moves to a new home near Chicago with her mother and discovers a ghost in her bedroom. Mary believes that the ghost is her father who gives her the power to heal others. When Mary begins to help others with her powers, strangers hoping to be healed show up at their house. Mary’s efforts to help them turn tragic, and Mary must turn to her family and her music to find answers to the losses in her life.
    The story is told from alternating perspectives of three main characters. Mary tells her story through her diary as she talks to her imagined father about the changes in her life. Mary’s mother, Rachel, reveals to Mary the secrets of their family, and her history with Mary’s father who was killed in what appeared to be a racially motivated drive-by shooting. Jonah Culpepper, who lives next door, talks to his dead wife, Esther, about Mary, and how she has given him a reason to live.

    The Ascension of Mary addresses relationships, diversity, racism, grief, and discovery in today’s society through the eyes of a blended family which finds strength in its broken parts.

    The Bright Side Running Club av Josie Lloyd (Alcove Press)

    Detta är en e-bok.

    Beskrivning: Josie Lloyd’s fearless novel is a tribute to the power of the human spirit in the face of hardship, based on the author’s own experience with cancer and community.

    In the vein of Mary Ellen Taylor’s Honeysuckle Season this “amazing, breathtaking, and inspiring” (Jenny Colgan) novel is full of hope and heart.

    When Keira first receives her breast cancer diagnosis, she never expects to end up joining a running group with three women she’s only just met. Totally blind-sided, all she can think about is how she doesn’t want to tell her family or step back from work. Nor does she want to be part of a group of fellow cancer patients. Cancer is not her club.

    And yet it’s running – hot, sweaty, lycra-clad running in the company of brilliant, funny women all going through treatment – that unexpectedly gives Keira the hope she so urgently needs. Because Keira will not be defined by the C-word. And now, with the Cancer Ladies’ Running Club cheering her on, she is going to reclaim everything: her family, her identity, and her life.

    One step at a time.

    Moving, uplifting and full of hope, this is a beautifully crafted novel about love, family and the power of finding your tribe.

    We are offering .epub files of this book.

    The Earth Remains av Shelley Burchfield (TouchPoint Press)

    Detta är en e-bok.

    Beskrivning: In a time when humans owned other humans and a nation was torn by war, doing what was right sometimes meant being on the wrong side of the law.

    In tumultuous 1860, South Carolina farmer Polly Burgiss struggles to protect both her land and the slaves who plant and tend her valuable cotton, while still reeling from the murder of her young brothers years before. This horrific crime has gone unsolved and unpunished—until now. When details of the brutal murder come to light, she must make decisions that will change not only her own life, but the lives of every person on her farm.

    With a strong sense of place, the story chronicles the intertwined lives of Polly and one of her slaves, a man named Ben. It spans generations and some of the state’s most painful years, from the Civil War through its ugly aftermath. As Polly discovers unsettling truths about the evils of slavery, her revelations set in motion a monumental shift in her own small corner of the world—and far beyond.

    The Foresight of Miriam Asquith av Timothy Best (TouchPoint Press)

    Detta är en e-bok.

    Beskrivning: 2021 Gold MarCom Award Winner (Creative Writing/Novel)

    IT’S 1939 AND EUROPE IS ON THE BRINK OF WAR.

    Rumors have circulated for years that Lady Miriam Asquith, a distant cousin to England’s King George VI, suffers from seizures where she seemingly predicts the future. But no one really knows for sure. When a kidnap attempt of Lady Miriam goes wrong in Paris, it’s believed the German S.S. is behind it. Working for British intelligence, a U.S. Army officer, Captain Sam Burke, is sent to the Asquith country estate to determine Lady Miriam’s abilities and, if necessary, protect her. What Sam finds is a free-spirited woman with amazing abilities dismissed by her father as a “sickness.” He also discovers German operatives are still after her, and a who-done-it betrayal straight out of an Agatha Christie novel. What Miriam finds is an American with a troubled past who’ll do anything to keep her out of harm’s way.

    Beskrivning: A mondegreen is ‘a misunderstood or misinterpreted word or phrase resulting from a mishearing of the lyrics of a song’ (definition from Oxford Languages).

To make searching for that elusive phrase easier, the collection includes indices of first lines, titles and poets. PDF only.

    Painting with Words: Landscapes in Verse av Richard Greene (Jumble Books and Publishers)

    Detta är en e-bok.

    Beskrivning: A collection of poems describing the exterior world, such as:

    Orinocos of the Imagination

    I’ve never been to the Orinoco
    and have seen few photos of it,
    but I feel I know its sinuous lengths,
    winding between thick jungle walls,
    flashing silver in the sun,
    delicate waterfalls
    threading from cloud-shrouded cliffs,
    dense foliage
    adorned with birds of kindergarten colors
    and jaguars that merge into shadow,
    the insistent music
    of bird cry and monkey chatter,
    dugouts and caimans
    scoring its sleek waters,
    those who people its valley
    gliding nearly naked
    through twilight forests,
    dappled by the distant sun.
    I know these lush landscapes
    from my dreams.

    Power, Passion, and Faith: Emmy Carlsson Evald, Suffragist and Social Activist av Sharon M. Wyman (Transformation Media Books)

    Detta är en e-bok.

    Beskrivning: It is the morning of July 1, 1938, and New York City is just beginning to stir. For Emmy Evald, it is a day of reckoning.

    Born the daughter of a pioneer preacher in 1857 in Geneva, Illinois, Emmy Evald grew up in the poor section of Chicago known as “Swede Town.” Despite her humble beginnings, she became one of the most influential and remarkable Swedish American women of her day.

    Emmy began challenging the male-dominated church and social mores early on. Clear in her vision, she established the Lutheran Woman’s Missionary Society in 1892, raising more than $3 million, which provided health care and education to women worldwide.

    A distinguished orator, Emmy led the charge on behalf of women’s suffrage and marched with Susan B. Anthony to the US Congress in 1902.

    Her actions met with both victory and defeat. Some women felt a woman’s place was in the home and resented her. Men tried to silence her spirit. But she was a “force to be reckoned with,” one who never gave up on the fight for women’s rights and social justice.
