Curl up with Cathy Lamb, an author you will come to cherish, as she makes you laugh, cry and reach for the chocolate... Ever since the Bommarito sisters were little girls their mother has written them a letter on pink paper when she has something especially important to tell them. And this time, the message is urgent and impossible to ignore, she requires open heart surgery, and Isabelle and her sisters are needed at home to run the family bakery and to take care of their brother, Henry, and ailing grandmother. Poignant, funny, and as irresistible as one of the Bommarito Bakery's delicious giant cupcakes, Henry's Sisters is a novel about family and forgiveness, about mothers and daughters, and about gaining the wisdom to look ahead while still holding tight to everything that matters most.

How the Personal Became Political In the Fight to Grant Women Civil Rights They forever changed America: Lucy Stone, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Frances Willard, Alice Paul. At their revolution's start in the 1840s, a woman's right to speak in public was questioned. By its conclusion in 1920, the victory in woman's suffrage had also encompassed the most fundamental rights of citizenship: the right to control wages, hold property, to contract, to sue, to testify in court. Their struggle was confrontational (women were the first to picket the White House for a political cause) and violent (women were arrested, jailed, and force-fed in prisons). And like every revolutionary before them, their struggle was personal. For the first time, the eminent historian Jean H. Baker tellingly interweaves these women's private lives with their public achievements, presenting these revolutionary women in three dimensions, humanized, and marvelously approachable.

For 200 years after 1650 the West Indies were the most fought-over colonies in the world, as Europeans made and lost immense fortunes growing and trading in sugar - a commodity so lucrative that it was known as white gold. Young men, beset by death and disease, an ocean away from the moral anchors of life in Britain, created immense dynastic wealth but produced a society poisoned by war, sickness, cruelty and corruption. The Sugar Barons explores the lives and experiences of those whose fortunes rose and fell with the West Indian empire. From the ambitious and brilliant entrepreneurs, to the grandees wielding power across the Atlantic, to the inheritors often consumed by decadence, disgrace and madness, this is the compelling story of how a few small islands and a handful of families decisively shaped the British Empire.

In this important new anthology, Venetria K. Patton and Maureen Honey bring together a comprehensive selection of texts from the Harlem Renaissance-a key period in the literary and cultural history of the United States. The collection revolutionizes our way of viewing this era, since it redresses the ongoing emphasis on the male writers of this time. Double-Take offers a unique, balanced collection of writers-men and women, gay and straight, familiar and obscure. Arranged by author, rather than by genre, this anthology includes works from major Harlem Renaissance figures as well as often-overlooked essayists, poets, dramatists, and artists. The editors have included works from a wide variety of genres-poetry, short stories, drama, and essays-allowing readers to understand the true interdisciplinary quality of this cultural movement. Biographical sketches of the authors are provided and most of the pieces are included in their entirety. Double-Take also includes artwork and illustrations, many of which are from original journals and have never before been reprinted. Significantly, Double-Take is the first Harlem Renaissance title to include song lyrics to illustrate the interrelation of various art forms.

Jessica had always been haunted by the fear that the unthinkable had happened when she had been “made-up.” For as far back as she could remember, she had no sense of a Self. Her mother thought of her as the “perfect infant” because “she never wanted anything and she never needed anything.” As a child, just thinking of saying “I need” or “I want” left her feeling like an empty shell and that her mind was about to spin out of control. Terrified of who––or what––she was, she lived in constant dread over being found guilty of impersonating a human being. Jeffrey Von Glahn, Ph.D., an experienced therapist with an unshakable belief in the healing powers of the human spirit, and Jessica blaze a trail into this unexplored territory. As if she has, in fact, become an infant again, Jessica remembers in extraordinary detail events from the earliest days of her life––events that threatened to twist her embryonic humanness from its natural course of development. Her recollections are like listening to an infant who could talk describe every psychologically dramatic moment of its life as it was happening. When Dr. Von Glahn met Jessica, she was 23. Everyone regarded her as a responsible, caring person – except that she never drove and she stayed at her mother’s when her husband worked nights. For many months, Jessica’s therapy was stuck in an impasse. Dr. Von Glahn had absolutely no idea that she was so terrified over simply talking about herself. In hopes of breakthrough, she boldly asked for four hours of therapy a day, for three days a week, for six weeks. The mystery that was Jessica cracked open in dramatic fashion, and in a way that Dr. Von Glahn could never have imagined. Then she asked for four days a week – and for however long it took. In the following months, her electrifying journey into her mystifying past brought her ever closer to a final confrontation with the events that had threatened to forever strip her of her basic humanness.

THIS BOOK MAKES CLEAR HENRY S. MANLEY'S STATURE AS A SIGNIFICANT FIGURE REGARDING NEW YORK STATE AND, MORE BROADLY, UNITED STATES, LEGAL AND NATIVE AMERICAN HISTORY AND SCHOLARSHIP. Henry S. Manley made legal history, was a skilled chronicler of history, and lived a life that reflected many facets of his far-ranging interests and capabilities. In Henry S. Manley (1892 - 1967) His Life and Writings: Early Pilot, Constitutional Lawyer, Innovative Farmer and Native American History Specialist the editors, HSM's direct descendants, present a substantial portion of his published and unpublished works in the fields of law, history, aviation, farming and genealogy replete with photographs and the editors' own explanatory notes. A highlight of this book is a complete reprint of HSM's seminal and long out-of-print 1932 book The Treaty of Fort Stanwix, 1784 as well as several of his articles on Native American history. Here, too, are some of his equally important legal articles, including "Nebbia Plus Fifteen," about the strategy he employed in successfully arguing the landmark Nebbia v New York case before the U.S. Supreme Court (decision handed down March 1934); and his wry and much admired "Mr. Justice Per Curiam," originally appearing under the title "Nonpareil Among Judges." Published for the first time, are HSM's evocative, and in one instance, somewhat harrowing, accounts of his experiences as a U.S. Army Air Corps pilot-trainee and, later, an instructor of pilots in Texas and Illinois during World War I. Available to the general public for the first time is his well-researched and sometimes humorous Manley Family, New England and New York, 1650-1950. Included in the book is the 1926 correspondence between Benjamin N. Cardozo, one of America's greatest judges, and HSM in which the former stated, "I have found your briefs very helpful and suggestive. You say things in an original way. A mind has been at work, and not a hand with scissors and paste pot." Readers are likely to agree with the cogency of that statement when they delve into HSM's writing.
