Synopsis

How do you live an authentic life while keeping a secret? This is Carol Anderson's struggle throughout her award-winning debut memoir.

Carol grew up in an era when being gay was against the law in most states, and in opposition to cultural and religious mores throughout society. Fearing rejection, she hid the truth from her loving Christian parents and from others significant in her life. The cost was a painful emotional distance that could not be bridged for years.  Thanks to the feminist movement, she found the freedom to love whomever she chooses and the courage to come out to her mother after her father's death. The news was received with both love and reservation, and, ultimately, acceptance. Carol's deep respect for her parents, and theirs for her, shines through her own confusion and struggle to be true to herself.

This memoir allows people to experience the complex, invisible dynamics that arise for those forced to cover up a part of themselves to survive. It also provides life lessons for anyone hiding a core and frightening truth about themselves.  Candid and poignant, You Can't Buy Love Like That celebrates the hard-won rewards of finding one's courageous heart and achieving self-acceptance….

  • Self-Help

Synopsis

Long Distance Caregiving can be challenging—and one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.

No one is ever fully prepared to help a family member through a difficult illness, and aging issues, let alone prepare their loved ones for death. In today’s world many are called upon to help from afar—children, nieces or nephews, siblings and even friends. There are many “how to” books out there on caregiving but few share their story—the raw emotions, the exhaustion—but that show how, in the end, the caregiver gains wonderful gifts and a deepened love and understanding for those they help.

In her first book for adults, Caroline H. Sheppard shares her story of how she was called to oversee the care for five family members over a fifteen year period (from 1999 to 2014).  Due to the physical distance between those in need and herself, she learned the ups and downs and ins and outs of long distance care and how challenging and rewarding it can be.

Synopsis

Set in North Carolina in 1960 and brimming with authenticity and grit, The Moonshiner’s Daughter evokes the singular life of sixteen-year-old Jessie Sasser, a young woman determined to escape her family’s past . . .
 
Generations of Sassers have made moonshine in the Brushy Mountains of Wilkes County, North Carolina. Their history is recorded in a leather-bound journal that belongs to Jessie Sasser’s daddy, but Jessie wants no part of it. As far as she’s concerned, moonshine caused her mother’s death a dozen years ago.
 
Her father refuses to speak about her mama, or about the day she died. But Jessie has a gnawing hunger for the truth—one that compels her to seek comfort in food. Yet all her self-destructive behavior seems to do is feed what her school’s gruff but compassionate nurse describes as the “monster” inside Jessie.
 
Resenting her father’s insistence that moonshining runs in her veins, Jessie makes a plan to destroy the stills, using their neighbors as scapegoats. Instead, her scheme escalates an old rivalry and reveals
long-held grudges. As she endeavors to right wrongs old and new, Jessie’s loyalties will bring her to unexpected revelations about her family, her strengths—and a legacy that may provide her with the answers she has been longing for.

Synopsis

So many of our relationships—including those most important to us are complicated by not listening: we are eager to speak, we talk over each other, or we unintentionally disregard the inner experiences of others. This is most notable in the working world, where a gap exists between professional efficiency and true human connection. In this heart-warming and radically honest book, Dr. Nicole identifies the remedy for resolving the pain and distance caused by miscommunication: empathy. Empathy, the ability to recognize and make space for another’s emotions without judgment, is both an action and a choice. Discovering the power of empathy to heal and create connections dramatically improved Dr. Nicole’s life, both as a mother and a doctor.The initial chapters demystify the theory of communication, focusing on empathy in theory and practice. Dr. Nicole also shares numerous powerful stories from her own life and career that reveal how empathy has led to authentic connections and long-term healing. Lastly, she provides the reader with proven exercises that will allow you to practice listening without judgment, honoring silence, responding with wisdom, and speaking from the heart. Such communication skills will open the doors to moments of pure magic in your life.Foreword by Ruth Vachon, President and CEO of the Quebec Business Women’s Network.

Enfin, je présente des recettes éprouvées pour se préparer à parler et à écouter avec cœur, authenticité et empathie. Ces compétences exigent des efforts de préparation, de concentration et d’ouverture vers l’autre, mais elles rapportent au-delà de toute espérance chez ceux qui les pratiquent et les maîtrisent. Après tout, pour être savoureuse, la patate a besoin de sel tout comme la communication a besoin d’empathie pour rehausser son goût. C’est magique!

Out of This World Ideas: And the Inventions They Inspired

  • Science Fiction
Nonfiction

Synopsis

Have you ever heard someone claim that a particular invention was inspired by a work of science fiction? Should you believe them? As it turns out, it’s not impossible. The real question is, which claims are true and which are not?

Out of This World Ideas looks at number of such claims in detail. Did a novel by Frank Herbert inspire a British engineer to come up with an invention to solve a problem created by the Suez Crisis in 1956? Did a story by a Russian scientist who was also a science fiction author inspire a Russian engineer to invent a new type of holography? Did a work by Robert Heinlein affect U. S. plans for atomic weapons in the period just before the United States entered World War II?

Ed Wysocki, who has written two other books of non-fiction about science fiction, considers and analyzes these and other claims in detail. As was said, some are true and some are not. In addition, he presents a way of organizing and presenting them, with a view toward discovering and investigating additional claims.

What followed over the next seventeen months represents one of the most harrowing and illuminating journeys a young professional can experience at the beginning of his career, due - in large part- to Odyssey's brilliant, pioneering, inscrutable, and mercurial founder and Director, (both a lawyer and psychiatrist). Williams documents his personal and professional Odyssey at Odyssey House in a new book that is both a fascinating look back and an important mirror on some of the most vexing problems our society faces today.

Killing Vincent: The Man, The Myth, and The Murder

  • Mystery
Nonfiction

Synopsis

On July 27, 1890, Vincent van Gogh came stumbling into his room in the Ravoux Inn, in Auvers-sur-Oise, France, bleeding from a wound in his abdomen. Thirty hours later, Vincent was dead. The common myth, which has prevailed for over one hundred years, is that the "mad" artist shot himself in a wheat field after suffering from years of unhappiness and "insanity". But is that what really happened? Killing Vincent is meant as a historical analysis and exposé of the most dastardly murder of Vincent van Gogh and the19th century, nefarious cover up of the world's most iconic artist’s death. This is the biggest cold case in the annals of the art world. I have attempted to continue to explore the key questions that TIME magazine asked in its October 31, 2011, cover story: “Who killed Vincent van Gogh?” and “Was van Gogh’s death really a suicide?” on the “Culture” Cover. I have attempted to answer both questions by adding in modern 21st century forensic analysis. This work is not meant as an academic treatise or dissertation, with every observation, thought, and detail requiring documentation. It is only an attempt as an expose’, to seek the truth of what really happened….

Synopsis

After disastrous experiences in law and education, Jake Kazmareck tries to disappear into a menial job picking melons on a farm in the Rio Grande Valley.

An estranged friend tracks him down, however, with news that their mutual bosom buddy is not dead but rotting in a Mexican prison. The stage is set for his rescue.

Jake, Connors McClain, and Artie Cavazos’s friendship was forged during an almost fatal canoe trip in which only Artie’s genius for survival kept them alive. Their brush with death, however, unleashed in Jake a primitive beast that has never stopped plaguing him. A few years later, the three engage in an attempt to rescue Artie’s uncle and family from the Mexican drug cartel that had forced his uncle to work for them. Jake mistakenly attributes their failure, and Artie’s death, to Connors’s betrayal. When Connors later contacts Jake, he shares some startling news. Connors, now the Texas attorney general, has discovered that Artie is still alive and imprisoned in a Mexican jail.

The harrowing rescue is successful, but Artie’s experiences have effectively destroyed his spirit. Jake and Connors now reconciled, they enlist the aid of psychiatrist Judith Neuwirth to try to piece back together Artie’s shattered self.

The airline world has changed dramatically in the fifty-six years since I entered it. Some changes are for the better, but some are not so good. This book paints a picture of the airline world through my career. I have spent 26,000 hours at the controls of different aircraft. Many pilots who have flown the airlines will have had similar experiences. I make no attempt to be exclusive or comprehensive, but rather to offer a flavor of what this world was like. Most names here are true. Some have been changed or omitted to preserve the sensitivities of those involved. In a few cases, I must plead Winston Churchill's excuse, "that a gentleman never insults someone by accident."

Synopsis

THERE IS ONLY ONE PROBLEM: THE SOLUTION IS AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE

"The central lesson of quantum physics is clear. There are no independent objects free from consciousness, sitting out there in some pre-existing 'public space.'"
"Jesus taught no theology or dogma. He did not bring religion, but TRUTH. His teaching and his daily demonstrations of healing were entirely spiritual and metaphysical.

They were not religious but are true for EVERYONE on Earth."
 

There is a reason establishment science has been unable to theorize a bridge between its "material" world of mechanical physics and the ephemeral, quantum world of probabilities. The overarching theory of everything they seek will not be about complex mathematics. Jim Gleeson puts the clues all together for non-scientists and calls it "The Ancient Theory of Everything”.

Synopsis

What was it that Alicia heard, groggy from sleep? Later that day, she takes a break from school assignments and ventures outside, stunned and confused to find her Mom and Dad frozen inside an amber bubble. No matter how loud she screams or how hard she beats on the bubble, her parents don't respond. The frightened teenager has a gut-wrenching feeling that she is the only one who can free them as she realizes the Wild Side has been calling her.

Three years older now, our heroine Alicia is on the annual family visit to their mountain cabin in the wilds of Idaho. This is the last summer before starting high school and she finds herself spending more time in the cabin completing summer assignments made by her teachers than doing her normal mountain cabin activities: exploration, discovery, and games of imagination. On a particularly normal day, Alicia takes a break from her school assignments and ventures outside expecting to see her father Richard chopping or stacking wood, and her mother Katie focused on her latest painting of the beautiful surroundings. She was stunned and confused to find them both seemingly frozen, trapped inside an amber-colored bubble. No matter how loud she screamed or how hard she beat on the bubble, her parents did not move a muscle, nor did they breathe. The frightened teenager has a gut-wrenching feeling that she is the only one who could save them.

Alicia had heard unusual sounds during this visit as if someone or something was calling to her. With the discovery of her parents in amber, she had the sudden realization that the Wild Side might be calling her back. This time, she prepared herself by filling a backpack with things she did not have three years ago when she somehow walked through the portal to the other side. With food, supplies, and an extra layer of clothes, she ventures on the most important adventure she has had in her short life. Somehow, Alicia knew she had to get back to the wild side to free her parents from the bubble and she knew that she must be prepared for anything.

Once on the other side, Alicia finds herself fearing for her life in the search for answers to the mystery that holds her parents captive. She befriends Tawny, a frighteningly beautiful cougar who becomes her ally and protector when Alicia decides to look for "The Ancients", beings that her friends in the Wild Side had talked about three years ago. She felt in her heart that they could help her free her parents but could they. More importantly - would they?
