Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Both mature professionals, they fell in love with childlike glee. John and Dorothy had met briefly in New Jersey. A medical doctor from Australia, he was en route to the British Isles to further his education. Friends of Dorothy, also a doctor, had fixed them up on a blind date neither looked forward to. Yet they had fun. When she decided on a summer vacation in England, her best friend and traveling companion Helen broke her leg at the last moment, as if by fate. John happily saw Dorothy around London but thought of her only as a lady doctor from America. Then, in the hospital matron's sitting room, something happened that changed both their lives. A rushed courtship, a simple wedding in Wesley's Chapel, and the briefest of honeymoons followed. She sailed home, and John, scarcely believing he was now a married man, stayed on at St. Paul's Hospital in London. For three months, the Atlantic separated them. John wrote to Dorothy every morning and every night, never once missing a day. A self-confessed very ordinary man, he revealed much about himself and about how he coped in London during their separation, devising a hundred different ways to express his love for Dorothy. His letters convey a refreshing earnestness and honesty. Although Dorothy's half of the correspondence has not survived, her mysterious cable, "Come at once!" assured John's arrival in East Orange by Christmas. This tenderhearted story, based on the love letters John wrote to Dorothy from London in 1933 and including numerous excerpts, is told by their son for those of us who have experienced or imagined the love of a lifetime. Born in New Jersey and raised in California, John Kessell did not set out to be a professional historian. His work in the 1960s, however, at Tumacacori National Monument in New Mexico, site of a Spanish colonial mission, alerted him to the possibility. Returning to graduate school with new purpose, he earned his doctorate at the University of New Mexico, survived a decade as historian-for-hire, and joined the UNM Department of History. His major historical editing project with colleagues Rick Hendricks, Meredith D. Dodge, and Larry D. Miller resulted in the six-volume "Journals of don Diego de Vargas, New Mexico, 1691 - 1704." Kessell is also author of "Kiva, Cross and Crown: The Pecos Indians and New Mexico, 1540 - 1840"; "The Missions of New Mexico Since 1776"; and "Pueblos, Spaniards, and the Kingdom of New Mexico."

This book was released on 2012-03-20 with total page 290 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Critical Approaches to Food in Children’s Literature is the first scholarly volume on the topic, connecting children's literature to the burgeoning discipline of food studies. Following the lead of historians like Mark Kurlansky, Jeffrey Pilcher and Massimo Montanari, who use food as a fundamental node for understanding history, the essays in this volume present food as a multivalent signifier in children’s literature, and make a strong argument for its central place in literature and literary theory. Written by some of the most respected scholars in the field, the essays between these covers tackle texts from the nineteenth century (Rudyard Kipling’s Kim) to the contemporary (Dave Pilkey’s Captain Underpants series), the U.S. multicultural (Asian-American) to the international (Ireland, Brazil, Mexico). Spanning genres such as picture books, chapter books, popular media, and children’s cookbooks, contributors utilize a variety of approaches, including archival research, cultural studies, formalism, gender studies, post-colonialism, post-structuralism, race studies, structuralism, and theology. Innovative and wide-ranging, Critical Approaches to Food in Children’s Literature provides us with a critical opportunity to puzzle out the significance of food in children’s literature.

This book was released on 2011-04-30 with total page 433 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In The New Southern Garden Cookbook, Sheri Castle aims to make "what's in season" the answer to "what's for dinner?" This timely cookbook, with dishes for omnivores and vegetarians alike, celebrates and promotes delicious, healthful homemade meals centered on the diverse array of seasonal fruits and vegetables grown in the South, and in most of the rest of the nation as well. Increased attention to the health benefits and environmental advantages of eating locally, Castle notes, is inspiring Americans to partake of the garden by raising their own kitchen plots, visiting area farmers' markets and pick-your-own farms, and signing up for CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) boxes from local growers. The New Southern Garden Cookbook offers over 300 brightly flavored recipes that will inspire beginning and experienced cooks, southern or otherwise, to take advantage of seasonal delights. Castle has organized the cookbook alphabetically by type of vegetable or fruit, building on the premise that when cooking with fresh produce, the ingredient, not the recipe, is the wiser starting point. While some dishes are inspired by traditional southern recipes, many reveal the goodness of gardens in new, contemporary ways. Peppered with tips, hints, and great stories, these pages make for good food and a good read.

Her mother showers her little girl with abuse and neglect instead of love, and Irene spends her childhood in utter deprivation and hardship.

Luckily Irene has a safe haven with her loving auntie and uncle, but when they move away she is left alone to fend for herself in a family where she just doesn't fit in. Irene resolves to leave her horrible family behind, and her determination to escape what life has thrown at her leads her to a dream career as a nurse. Her confidence grows, and her ambition of carving out her own future is boosted by a good nose for a property deal. And might she find happiness in love when she least expects it?

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Houston's sprawl has come with controversy, but it has created a blank canvas for the public art community. It all started in the Telephone Road Place subdivision, where retired mail carrier Jefferson Davis McKissack built the Orange Show, an extraordinary and eccentric monument to self-reliance, hard work and, yes, the fruit itself. McKissack's installation spawned more of its kind in the Bayou City, like the Beer Can House, the Flower Man's House, Pigdom--one woman's "shrine to swine"--and a flourishing art scene committed to preserving Houston's art environments. Author Pete Gershon tells the stories of these sites, their creators and the members of Houston's unique art community, all set against the backdrop of the city's quirky history..

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The War is over, but for Sabine the fight for freedom has only just begun. 1961. The Cold War. Berlin is an occupied city - the Western Allies in the West; the Soviets in the East. Berliners go about their daily lives as best they can, until one day they wake up to discover their city has been torn in half by barbed wire - great tangled coils of it snaking through the city. Within days East German soldiers are turning the barbed wire into a solid wall. The Berlin Wall. 17 year old Sabine lives in East Berlin with her mother and younger sister. Sabine's brother, Dieter, lives in West Berlin. The family is divided and they have no hope of being reunited. The only answer is for Sabine, her sister and mother to escape Communist East Berlin. But the Berlin Wall is guarded by armed soldiers who are operating a shoot to kill policy and almost everyone is under surveillance by the secret police, the Stasi. The smallest error can have you arrested and interrogated. Even imprisoned. Can Dieter find a way to get his family out of East Berlin? Can Sabine escape the clutches of the secret police? Can she lead her mother and sister to safety? And who, amongst her friends and neighbours, can she trust? Oranges for Christmas is an historical thriller that will keep you gripped to the end. Author Q&A Q - What inspired you to write Oranges for Christmas? A - I studied German at university and in 1987 I spent three weeks in West Berlin. I was fascinated and shocked by this vibrant city with the Wall running through the middle of it. From viewing platforms in the West you could see the death strip and the guard towers - this was the Cold War for real. I remember standing on a platform in West Berlin and looking across the Wall at the Brandenburg Gate. One day my friend, who is a West Berliner, and I travelled to East Berlin. This would not have been possible for West Berliners in 1961 when the Wall first went up. We travelled on the U-Bahn, the underground, through a series of ghost stations, to Friedrichstrasse. East Berlin was a drab place with old-fashioned Trabants on the roads and virtually nothing in the shops. It was clear that the Communist experiment was a failure. Q - Have you been back to Berlin since the Wall fell in 1989? A - Yes, I first went back there in 1991 on an Inter-rail holiday. It was a fabulous experience to be able to walk through the Brandenburg Gate from West to East Berlin, so different from my first experience of seeing the Brandenburg Gate behind the Wall. I also took my family to Berlin in 2013. So much has changed. Potsdamer Platz used to be part of the death strip, but now it's a dynamic and exciting city centre with modern sky-scrapers and a huge Imax cinema. Q - Is it still possible to see parts of the Berlin Wall? A - Yes. I would recommend anyone interested in this period of history to visit the Wall Memorial at Bernauer Strasse where a large section of the Wall remains. There are also two visitor centres at Bernauer Strasse with informative and moving displays and videos. The Stasi HQ at Normannenstrasse is now a museum and the remand prison at Hohenschonhausen is a memorial centre where you can take a very informative guided tour. Q - Who should read Oranges for Christmas? A - Teenagers and adults alike all really seem to enjoy the novel. 13+ is probably the lower age limit, but there's no upper age limit."
