Martha has been dreading Ross leaving for weeks.

He has been hired as a fishing worker in one of the deadliest seas in the world, doing the same work that killed her father many years ago.

Her loneliness drives her out of her house and into the Christmas market. It’s there that she meets an old woman who claims that she can bring happiness back into Martha’s life with nothing but a little bottle of inky blue liquid.

Adeline (Silent Movies Book 1)

by Akje Majdanek

At the dawn of American cinema, English farm boy Trevor Goodwin is forced to flee to New York after he unwittingly participates in an anarchist attack that leaves four people dead. The only thing more important to him than his self-respect and his family is his fiancée, Honoria, but until the furor over the tragedy dies down, he has to avoid those he lovesâ??especially after the real culprit threatens to kill him.

In New York he meets Adeline, a Rubenesque vaudeville singer in a run-down theater run by his uncle. Adeline is beautiful but troubled, and Trevor is drawn to her darkness, determined to uncover the secret of her grief.

Among Adeline’s demons is Montague Thornton, her self-appointed guardian, who saved her when her family was killed years earlier. Jealous and possessive, Thornton plans to own Addie completely now that she’s old enough to marry. Using her survivor guilt as a weapon of manipulation, he tries to shape her into the kind of trophy he desires.

He didn’t count on the quiet appeal of a simple country boy like Trevor, however. When Trevor joins the show as Addie’s pianist, it triggers events that threaten to destroy the barriers they’ve each carefully constructed around their respective trauma. Can they heal each other before sinister forces thwart their budding relationship? The pioneers of the emerging silent film industry prove almost as deadly as the anarchist movement back home, and Trevor’s freedom and Adeline’s sanity hang in the balance.

Rufus and Rose: The Fortunes of Rough and Ready

by Jr. Horatio Alger

If you’ve ever used the phrase “rags to riches,” you owe that to Horatio Alger, Jr. (1832-1899), who popularized the idea through his fictional writings that also served as a theme for the way America viewed itself as a country. Alger’s works about poor boys rising to better living conditions through hard work, determination, courage, honesty, and morals was popular with both adults and younger readers.

Alger’s writings happened to correspond with America’s Gilded Age, a time of increasing prosperity in a nation rebuilding from the Civil War. His lifelong theme of rags to riches continued to gain popularity but has gradually lessened since the 1920s. Still, readers today often come across Ragged Dick and stories like it in school.
