Bitter Roots is a tragic love story about a middle-aged Christian woman, Claudia Lakes, whose only desire in life is to love and be loved. Yet, she is not free to love because she is haunted by her past; a deep, dark secret buried under a lemon tree in her backyard. But secrets cannot be kept forever Taunted and bullied as a child, Claudia suffered from low self-esteem until the new minister of her church, his wife, and their young daughter Olivia, moved in next door. At last, Claudia is no longer lonely. She and Olivia become fast friends. At the age of seventeen, Olivia is raped and Claudia blames herself for not being there to protect her. Praise for Marion McNair and Bitter Roots "Bitter Roots is an exciting novel. It reveals all too often, the lives of a myriad of people's public success, but private failure. This provocative work of art will capture your attention. You can't put it down!" -Dr. Paul A. Thomas, PhD, Greenville, North Carolina "Against a backdrop of Christianity, the author develops the characters uniquely, colorfully, and weaves them into an intricate pattern of traditional values laden with suspense, intrigue, and passion. A must read!" -Faye I. Mandell, L.C.S.W

For over a century, plant specialists worldwide have sought to transform healing plants in African countries into pharmaceuticals. And for equally as long, conflicts over these medicinal plants have endured, from stolen recipes and toxic tonics to unfulfilled promises of laboratory equipment and usurped personal patents. In Bitter Roots, Abena Dove Osseo-Asare draws on publicly available records and extensive interviews with scientists and healers in Ghana, Madagascar, and South Africa to interpret how African scientists and healers, rural communities, and drug companies—including Pfizer, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Unilever—have sought since the 1880s to develop drugs from Africa’s medicinal plants. Osseo-Asare recalls the efforts to transform six plants into pharmaceuticals: rosy periwinkle, Asiatic pennywort, grains of paradise, Strophanthus, Cryptolepis, and Hoodia. Through the stories of each plant, she shows that herbal medicine and pharmaceutical chemistry have simultaneous and overlapping histories that cross geographic boundaries. At the same time, Osseo-Asare sheds new light on how various interests have tried to manage the rights to these healing plants and probes the challenges associated with assigning ownership to plants and their biochemical components. A fascinating examination of the history of medicine in colonial and postcolonial Africa, Bitter Roots will be indispensable for scholars of Africa; historians interested in medicine, biochemistry, and society; and policy makers concerned with drug access and patent rights.

Everyone knows that Canada's military is in Afghanistan, but what they don't know is how much the average Canadian is contributing to aid efforts in that country. In Bitter Roots, Tender Shoots, respected journalist Sally Armstrong revisits Afghanistan to compare women's lives pre- and post-Taliban, interviewing Afghan and Western women who are dedicated to improving health, education, culture, religion, and human rights. Armstrong connects these stories with the analysis of experts and considers the grassroots efforts of Canadians and the dedicated tax dollars being spent by the Canadian government. Bitter Roots, Tender Shoots is a moving portrayal of the lives of women and girls in Afghanistan in 2008.
