Love In Paradise

Ruth’s family has to make a choice. A choice that might get them in a lot of trouble with their community.

Ruth never cared about the English world. After her grandma and her aunt left the community, in the process breaking her father’s heart, she vowed she would never do the same to him- but now she’s left wondering if she will. The entire family makes their way to Miami to see Ruth’s grandma. There she meets Dean. She can’t help wondering if God is testing her, or trying to push her onto her path in life. Could Dean be part of her path?

Ruth wants the answer to be yes but keeps a big secret from him- who she really is. She has no clue how he will react if he finds out or if he will ever want to talk to her again. Ruth questions, “How can someone be your fate when you have to hide who really are from them?”

Drifting through a Singularity

by William Maxwell

Living this life knowing he can never get attached-whether by choice or out of necessity-Tim is constantly reminded of the solitary nature of his existence and the solitude he holds dear. It is the only way he is able to maintain any sense of stability in himself. Never knowing whether or not his thoughts are truly his own only compound to the issues he faces.

Tim’s insight into the world he inhabits at a given point in time provides a wide range of concepts to explore. With only the collection of thoughts running through his mind in a given moment to comfort him, he constantly questions his reality: Who am I? What is it I desire? Will I ever find the life I have long desired? Will I ever go back to where life began?

Drifting through a Singularity explores topics such as identity, existence, morality, change, and possibility.

He never plans to befriend a budding novelist with a load of relationship baggage of her own and an entourage of colorful friends who accept him into their ranks without ado. Follow Ari and Seymour’s journey toward that elusive “happily ever after,” as they walk an unconventional path through non-monogamous relationships, bisexuality, marriage, and parenthood.

Rudyard Kipling: The Complete Jungle Books (Manor Books)

by Rudyard Kipling

This book contains the complete texts of both “The Jungle Book” (1894) and “The Second Jungle Book” (1895).

The Jungle Books can be regarded as classic stories told by an adult to children. But they also constitute a complex literary work of art in which the whole of Kipling’s philosophy of life is expressed in miniature. They are best known for the `Mowgli’ stories; the tale of a baby abandoned and brought up by wolves, educated in the ways and secrets of the jungle by Kaa the python, Baloo the bear, and Bagheera the black panther.

The stories, a mixture of fantasy, myth, and magic, are underpinned by Kipling’s abiding preoccupation with the theme of self-discovery, and the nature of the `Law’.



Her Life is Showing

by Alice Benson

In Her Life Is Showing, the life and death drama of domestic violence is the backdrop to the daily struggle of the workers in a shelter. Manager Nancy, counselors Monica and Paula, and administrative assistant Becky must cope with terror, judgment, and burn-out. Working in a domestic violence shelter, these women expect to battle with abusive spouses and confront victim-blaming and uncooperative community resources. But when Renee, the new director, comes on board with new rules and strange ideas, the stress and conflict moves within the shelter, and the staff begins fighting with a challenging and unpredictable boss. Renee seems caring and reasonable at first, but as time passes, she targets clients, clashes with staff, and creates general discord throughout the shelter. So tensions are already running high when a high-risk case comes in. Andrea’s life is in danger; she is severely bruised around the neck from being throttled to near-death by her husband. Nancy and Monica work with the local police, taking extra precautions to protect Andrea and all the residents, while Renee flounders and shows her inability to provide direction and support at the shelter. A moving story of struggle and conflict, but also triumph and optimism, Her Life Is Showing takes the reader on a fascinating journey. Shelter staff and residents overcome pain, brutality and despair and move forward into lives of peace, empowerment, and hope.



Crossing of the Thorns

by Mickey Walsh

“Roses do not have thorns. That is a common misconceptionâ?¦”

In this coming-of-age story, two young men find that their paths cross in the most unexpected circumstances after being forced to work together on an old, unkempt garden under a restorative justice programme.

Soon they realise that, despite their initial differences, they must both learn how to grow up in a society that does not understand them, and how together they must ultimately not let their pasts determine their future – an almost Sisyphean task.
