Part-time actress and full-time mother Britt Hinson thought that most of her life’s drama was confined to the stage. Then a threatening presence entered her world, a mysterious stranger that no one but her pretty nine-year-old, Katie, had seen. Katie calls him the Flower Man, and Britt and her husband, Mark, don’t know whether to believe the child’s bizarre tales of the notes and flowers he’s left her—lilies, forget-me-nots, a black rose. But Britt’s fears intensify when, with his threatening phone calls and aggressive prowling of their home, the Flower Man draws her into a fight for her daughter’s life. The Hinsons become a family under siege. And Britt knows a mother’s love won’t be enough to protect Katie from harm… With gripping realism, The Flower Man pits a parent’s love, a child’s honesty, and a family’s security against the desperate acts of a relentless stalker.

All Men and Both Sexes

Gender, Politics, and the False Universal in England, 1640-1832

All Men and Both Sexes explores the use of such universal terms as &"people,&" &"man,&" or &"human&" in early modern England, from the civil war through the Enlightenment. Such language falsely implies inclusion of both men and women when actually it excludes women. Recent scholarship has focused on the Rights of Man doctrine from the Enlightenment and the French Revolution as explanation for women&’s exclusion from citizenship. According to Hilda Smith we need to go back further, to the English Revolution and the more grounded (but equally restricted) values tied to the &"free born Englishman.&" Citing educational treatises, advice literature to young people, guild records, popular periodicals, and parliamentary debates, she demonstrates how the &"male maturation process&" came to define the qualities attached to citizenship and responsible adulthood, which in turn became the basis for modern individualism and liberalism. By the eighteenth century a new discourse of sensibility was describing women as dependent beings outside the state, in a separate sphere and in need of protection. This excluded women from reform debates, forcing them to seek not an extension of a democratic franchise but a specific women&’s suffrage focused on gender difference.

Love Song of a Flower Child

This is a riveting story of redemption, and a journey to discover truth, love, and purpose. The author has graphically documented her need for healing from the effects of drugs, the occult, and New Age philosophy. She lived in Berkeley during the chaos of social rebellion and drug-induced insanity as a college dropout and former wife of a drug dealer. She also gives us a glimpse of life in the coastal community of Big Sur, where she was miraculously saved in 1972, and which she calls the land of her "second birth." "When I met Mary and John in 2004 on the mission field, I knew this story needed to be told. The union of a flower child and a warrior in marriage is sure to bring the most dramatic stories. But the beauty of this book comes from the heart of God who continued to prepare, refine, and work by revealing Himself throughout their story. You're going to love this one!" -Andy Braner, author, speaker, teen advocate, but most of all a curious observer, discovering God's Beautiful universe

Marie finds herself unexpectedly pregnant at 39. Meanwhile, her best friend, Elizabeth, has never been able to conceive, despite years of fertility treatments. In a genetic test routinely offered to older mothers, Marie discovers that the child she is carrying has Down syndrome. Intertwined throughout the novel is the story of Margaret, a woman who gave birth to a daughter with Down syndrome in 1947, when such infants were considered to be “unfinished” children. As the novel shifts through the decades, the lives of the three women converge, and the story speeds to an unexpected conclusion. With skill and poise, debut novelist Theresa Shea dramatically explores society’s changing views of Down syndrome over the past 60 years. The story offers an unflinching and compassionate history of the treatment of people with Down syndrome and their struggle for basic human rights. Ultimately, The Unfinished Child is an unforgettable and inspiring tale about the mysterious and complex bonds of family, friendship and motherhood.

The Flower of Paradise

The Institutionalized Use of the Drug Qat in North Yemen

Author: J.G. Kennedy

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

ISBN: 9401568766

Category: Social Science

Page: 269

View: 6313

This book concerns the use of the drug qat in North Yemen (Yemen Arab Republic), a country lying on the southwestern corner of the Arabian Peninsula. However, because this substance is so interwoven into the fabric of society and culture, it is also necessarily about Yemen itself. The history and culture of South Arabia are still relatively unknown to the rest of the world, and the drug qat, so widely used there, is equally unknown. Thus, the material we present here should be of interest to all of those concerned with drug use, those who wish to understand more about Yemen and the Middle East, and to the Yemenis themselves. Another purpose is to develop some general understandings about sub stance uses and their effects which are less clouded by the mass hysteria and political considerations which often obscure drug issues in our own society. Examination of drug-use patterns in a country where millions of people are users on a regular basis, and where there has been familiarity with the drug for several hundred years, offers an opportunity to achieve perspectives not possible in countries with different attitudes and without such histories. I am not sanguine about the prospects of our abilities to learn from others or from the past, but I do not think we should abandon hope of doing so.

Gods, Heroes and Men of Ancient Greece

Mythology's Great Tales of Valor and Romance

Author: W. H. D. Rouse

Page: 192

The Adventures that Shaped the Western World First published in 1934, Gods, Heroes and Men of Ancient Greece has become one of the most popular, enduring--and captivating--retellings of the ancient myths for modern readers. Recognizing the sheer entertainment value of these timeless adventures, world renowned classical scholar W.H.D. Rouse delighted his students at the Perse School in Cambridge, England, with a conversational style and childlike wonder that made the legends come alive--a rare storytelling gift that continues to engage young and old alike. Many of the characters in this book are familiar to us--Helen of Troy, Icarus, Zeus, Athena, to name just a few--but rarely have their stories of war and adventure, bravery and romance, been so simply and thrillingly told. From the strong-arm heroics of Heracles, to the trickery of the Trojan Horse, from the seductions of Circe the sorceress, to the terrors of the Cyclops and Minotaur, these legends have outlived the culture that bore them. But while the ancient Greeks may be long gone, their fables and morals, their heroes and heroines, live on today…
