Cicely: The Story of a Doctor

by Ann Dally

The biography of Cicely Williams…

With her open mind and freedom from prejudice, Dr. Cicely Williams was instrumental in saving the lives of huge numbers of children all over the world.

A specialist in maternal and child heath services working in a total of 58 different countries, Cicely educated mothers in hygiene and nutrition, befriended witch doctors when Western medicine was of no help and fought harmful customs and superstitions.

Through her hard work, Cicely became one of the most remarkable doctors of her time, her message increasingly preached and her methods practised in tropical countries everywhere.

In the mid-1930s, Cicely is transferred to Malaya to work in a children’s hospital in Singapore.

Then came the Second World War, along with the Japanese invasion.

And so ensued a nightmare period for the doctor, facing shelling and flying shrapnel, caring for hundreds of terrified, wounded babies and finally imprisonment for three years in the Changi gaol, where prisoners lived in constant fear of death and brutal torture.

In this fascinating biography of Dr. William’s life up to 1945, Ann Dally skillfully traces Cicely’s journey from the Gold Coast of Africa to her capture in Malaya and presents the reader with a life full of creative and absorbing work for humanity.

The result is a gripping and inspiring story of a brilliant doctor whose work has been of immense benefit to mankind…

Dr Ann Dally (1929-2007) was a pioneering English author and psychiatrist. She was born in London, the daughter of a distinguished lawyer and a half-American mother. She studied history, before qualifying in medicine and then in psychiatry, whilst going on to marry and have six children. Ann Dally wrote eleven books in all, including A-Z of Babies, The Intelligent Person’s Guide to Modern Medicine, A Child is Born, and The Morbid Streak.

A Nut With A Gun

by Dara Morrison

A True Crime anthology taking a look back at some of the more infamous mass shootings in history. Brenda Spencer was an abused teenager who lived across the street from the elementary school where she began firing upon after she had a “bad Monday.” Sylvia Seegrist was a certifiable nut job who drank carpet cleaning liquid for kicks…but when she had a gun in her hand it spelled doom for the patrons at a local shopping mall. Thomas Dillon was thought of as nothing more than a ‘weird guy’ at work but when a sniper began to terrorize the small town residents knew that there was more to the creepy Dillon then met the eye.

Diary of a Woman in Recovery: from Shame to Serenity

by Anonymous One

Diary of a Woman in Recovery is a collection of journal entires in there unedited, raw form. They come straight from the experience of a woman in recovery. I chose to share my journals in this form to be of service. To share the normal and natural path of the up and down thinking, the jumping from struggle to bliss and back again. Also to let everyone know that recovery is possible regardless of what we tell ourselves.
I got clean and sober in Costa Rica, with a small group, in a place where the party lifestyle is the norm. If I can get clean and sober and enjoy a new way of life, so can you! Whether you are just curious about the mind of a woman in recovery or really need to hear the story of someone you can relate to, I know you will be intrigued and perhaps even inspired by this diary.
If my experience, strength and hope can help even one person in their journey through recovery, then the heartache and perseverance that was needed to bring this book in to reality, will be well worth it. Thank you for experiencing my share. May it bring you comfort, that you are not alone, either as an addict-alcoholic or as someone whose life is effected by one.
