Anna Manning is struggling for a divorce of her thirty-three-year-old marriage and
the sell of the house where she has been trapped as the mother of four
and a wife of an absent husband. After enduring Edward's extra-marital affairs
throughout their marriage, Anna decides to move on.
She dreams of life in Europe and to pursue her long-abandoned dream. After stalling
the divorce for as long as he can, Edward Manning finally concedes.
Shortly afterward, Anna learns that her soon-to-be ex-husband is dying of cancer.
The House paints the classic picture of a failed marriage and a mildly dysfunctional family.
How they learn to cope with the loss of husband and father and survive without him makes a moving and dramatic story. While adjusting to the
eminent death of their father, Edward's children learn to better understand themselves and their own motivations as Anna learns to understand herself.

intelligence, regional history, funny mishaps or tight squeezes, each story is set against a
backdrop of nature’s jaw-dropping beauty. Ballou aims to share her world view, and
through her Eco-alerts make the reader care more deeply about our vanishing resources

book review of Tuey's Course.
Tuey's Course focuses on WeWildapheet Ulisees O'Tweety (known as Tuey) and his struggles to
make an honest living while fighting the corrupt elected officials in his town who seem determined to thwart his efforts at every turn.
Tuey diligently attends every council meeting and sometimes uses unusual methods to convey his frustration with the city's establishment.
In sharing the details of Tuey's life and his standing on the socioeconomic ladder, Ross makes a bigger statement about the impact that race
and money has on the voice a person enjoys in our society. And, he shows that the desperation eventually reached by the poor and the
overlooked can lead to tragic results. Ross continues his practice of interweaving multiple plot lines by including a referee who
throws football games in return for a payout, a gay priest who flies to Vegas for the weekend with his lover at the expense of a
crooked banker, and a developer who is willing to commit crimes in order to get the land that he desires. All of these characters,
as well as the golf course regulars we have come to know in Ross' previous books, come into contact with Tuey to create a novel that
manages to be both layered and cohesive in its storylines.

Bader Field embodies the emotional story of a son's loving relationship with his father—a legendary
art dealer whose life is suddenly taken by a massive coronary at the young age of fifty-eight years. His death pushes the 24-year-old
onto the front lines of the family art business, which he had entered a mere three years prior. His journey proves a difficult one,
not having yet recovered from the horrific loss of his brother to suicide just eight years earlier when he was found dead on the
fourth floor of the Rittenhouse Square townhouse, which was home to the prestigious David David Gallery.
There will be a tremendous crossover interest in this book as it combines the elements of an
American family, its goodness and its tragedy interfaced with the multifaceted aspects of the art business and flying small
airplanes. Bader Field in Atlantic City was the oldest airfield in the country. With little sophistication, its two asphalt
runways juggled single and twin-engine aircraft and exuded a character and charm that created memories to last a lifetime.
That is where this saga begins and where it ends as life comes full circle.

From the cauldron of controversy that is Hawaiian history emerges Wai-nani, a reflection of the personage of the great chiefess Ka'ahumanu.
Like all Islanders, she is a water baby finding pleasure, sustenance, solace, wisdom and courage in the grand and vibrant sea. She is born fifteen
years prior to the landing of Captain Cook in Kealakekua in 1779 and is the favorite wife of Makaha, a fierce warrior modeled after Kamehameha the
Hawaiian women enjoyed sports, were trained in the martial arts, played active roles in decision-making, and participated in wars. They
communed with the gods through hula and ritualistic ceremonies. Ka'ahumanu swam miles each day and it is reasonable to believe she would make friends
in the ocean. Wai-nani's bond with Eku-a playful and communicative dolphin-propels her on a mythological journey couched in magical realism. Wai-nani
is a celebration of the Hawaiian people of old, especially the powerful Ka'ahumanu-forerunner to the modern woman.

It is estimated by the American Diabetes Association that over 90,000 patients with
diabetes will have a leg amputated this year. Once someone with diabetes loses one leg, the chance that they will be living
in five years from now is only 50 percent. This survival rate is worse than most forms of cancer. Yet, many of the complications
of diabetes are within the control of the patient. With proper education, the number of foot and leg amputations and subsequent
deaths can be dramatically reduced.
Keep the Legs You Stand On is a must-read for podiatry students, residents, and clinicians. It's an insightful
and personal look at the high-risk patient with diabetes and a reminder of what can be done to help keep them be healthy,
active, and on their feet. Dr. Hinkes' personal experiences make him an expert in this area and we can all definitely learn from his
insight and approach. This comprehensive text on diabetes is written in a manner that a lay person can easily read and understand—a
tremendous resource for patients with diabetes and those who act as their caregivers—a “must have” book for all diabetic households
and diabetic education centers.

This is the story of the original American
dream, what being a man used to mean, and the extremes that used to be
celebrated in America. It is a story of the son of an Italian immigrant from Chicago and a
daughter of the American Revolution from the farm. It is a story of going from rags to riches and from working
in a foundry as a laborer to rising to the executive boardroom in a global business with world class achievements.
This book takes you from a tiny rural town in down state Illinois to
Rome, Paris, Shanghai, Mexico City, London, and Bangkok. And from the luxury of a Doges Palace in Venice to sailing through hurricane force winds
and wading in a putrid swamp hunting wild boar. Those of us that have had the privilege of living the real American dream have an obligation to
keep it alive and remind others why this country has been so great and to try and to keep those experiences alive for future generations.

Officer Brandon James had been the head of Oakwood's gang commission for a relatively short time.
In that time, however, he had made great strides against the five gangs in the city. The one thing that Officer James could not put
his finger on was the tall red headed kid that had just appeared without warning. "The Red Headed Stranger" as they called him was
part of the reason he had had so much early success. The kid would show up at gang activity, bring it to a peaceful resolution,
then disappear, just as fast as he had shown up. Things were going well. Officer James had met a lovely nurse named April who
was also looking for the red headed kid, but for different reasons. They both were single parents with teenagers. All was going
well until someone put a million dollar bounty on the family of Officer James.
Positive Force is a book that will entertain adolescents, teenagers and adults.

minute by minute. It's attainable, and now we have a guide.

way, especially its protégé', Sammael. As Ramla fights for her life, her protector, Peter, a man who died and traveled to
heaven will watch over her, but he is not able to interfere in her circumstances. Through Ramla, he learns why he didn't

Will she make it in time or allow evil forces to thwart the plan God has set for her? This supernatural thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat.

This is a book of spiritual essays by
Many people believe that they have no say in how their life evolves. They think that God,
fate, chance, or genes have control of their earthly journey. In this book, you will learn that we are co-creators of our
own lives and circumstances by the choices we make. After reading this book, I believe that peace on earth is possible if
we will only find this peace within our own silence—our own inner being that is connected to ALL THERE IS. To become the
master of our lives, we must stop seeing ourselves as separate from God or one another. By simply changing our thoughts, we can change things around us.
Like a modern day Rumi, Hal builds on the quantum science theory that we are living many lives
simultaneously in other dimensions or planes of reality. He uses nature, animals, and daily events to draw conclusions about
enlightenment and awareness. The insights in this book can change your life.
