Supermarket delivery driver Charlie enjoys his new job, because he doesn't have to spend too long with people, who, he's found, are nothing but trouble. But when he's assigned the Hope Row street, he realises there are a lot of lonely people out there - and for some, he's their only interaction. The supermarket boss tells Charlie he's a driver, not a social worker - but Charlie's tough exterior begins to soften, and he can't help show a little kindness to the Hope Row residents, helping them find their place in the world once more. But will his helping hand make everything worse? 'I adored this feel good book' Netgalley reviewer 'A book about hope, forgiveness, love and friendship that will touch your heart' Netgalley reviewer 'I couldn't love this book anymore if I tried!'

Book Short Summary:

Being yourself isn’t always easy. When you’re new in school, all you want is to fit in. When eleven-year-old Warren and his family move to a new city, his twin brother, who has Down syndrome, attracts too much attention for Warren’s liking. Bennie’s different and doesn’t care about it. But while Bennie may be oblivious to those who are curious or uneasy with him, Warren notices every smirk, comment, and sideways glance. Warren is weary of flip-flopping between trying to be just like everyone else and being the protective brother of a boy with special needs. Sometimes he thinks his life would be easier if he had no brother. But what he really needs is to stop worrying about what other people think.

Easter Egg and other poems of faith, hope, & love

Book Short Summary:

ONE OF THE most well-known passages in the Bible—and, perhaps, in all of literature—is the thirteenth chapter of St. Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, often called the “love chapter.” In it, Paul extols the qualities of love and ends his writing by stating, “And these three abide: faith, hope, and love.” These three virtues have guided me during my days on this earth: ? A faith that draws me daily to admit my inadequacies and to ask for the grace to live a life worthy of His calling ? A hope that continuously compels me to be a stronger person, a brighter light, a better writer ? A deep and abiding love for God, my family, my friends I have tried to express these virtues in the poems I share with you here. The majority of my poems do not rhyme. Instead, I like to build a rhythm in my writing by how I break each line in a verse so that your eye is constantly yearning for the next word. For something different, I have included two examples—escape and Lovers and Other Strangers—of concrete poetry, a form developed in the 1950s in which the physical shape of the words on the page adds as much meaning to the poem as the words themselves. And with a nod to my Bachelor’s degree in Russian, I also give you ? ?????????? ????????????, with its translation on the following page. I recently took one of those online quizzes about “what type of writer are you?” My results said that, “You write because you feel a deeper calling to the work, and because you want to explore the soul element of life. You’re not shy of adding a moral to the story and most want to reach readers who will understand your unique view on life. Writing is more than just putting words on paper for you—it is a written prayer.” And to that I can say only, “Amen.”

  • Pdf File: writing-lovers.pdf

Book Short Summary:

In writings by the French post-structuralists, rhetorical tropes such as speechlessness, fragmentation, and deflection testify to the writer's difficulty in broaching the subject of love. Similarly, Cook shows that love poetry proceeds out of a profound failure of language resulting from the opacity of discourse, its lack of neutrality, or the fugitive transparency of reference. Writing Lovers also explores race, ethnicity, age, and sexual identity within the context of the passionate excesses of amatory discourse.

Book Short Summary:

This unique blend of memoir and history takes “a multi-layered look at jigsaw puzzles . . . charming [and] fascinating” (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Award-winning author Margaret Drabble weaves her own story into a history of games, in particular jigsaws, which have offered her and many others relief from melancholy and depression. Alongside curious facts and discoveries—for example, that the 1929 stock market crash was followed by a boom in puzzle sales—Drabble introduces us to her beloved Auntie Phyl, and describes childhood visits to the house in Long Bennington on the Great North Road, their first trip to London together, the books they read, and the jigsaws they completed. With penetrating sketches of her parents, siblings, and children, Drabble shares her thoughts on the importance of childhood play, art and writing, aging and memory. And she does so with her customary intelligence, energy, and wit.

Book Short Summary:

A Love Unlike Any Other Love God is love. There are few more quoted statements in all of Scripture. Although wonderfully simple, this truth is incredibly profound—and therefore often misunderstood, twisted, and taken out of context. Rather than remembering that it is God who is love, we too often make human love our standard. Exploring what the Bible teaches about God's love, this book will lead you to marvel at both its unique nature and its immeasurable greatness.

Jitterbug Perfume is an epic. Which is to say, it begins in the forests of ancient Bohemia and doesn’t conclude until nine o’clock tonight (Paris time). It is a saga, as well. A saga must have a hero, and the hero of this one is a janitor with a missing bottle. The bottle is blue, very, very old, and embossed with the image of a goat-horned god. If the liquid in the bottle actually is the secret essence of the universe, as some folks seem to think, it had better be discovered soon because it is leaking and there is only a drop or two left.

This book is a companion to carry with you throughout your day, to touch in with and be supported by when bearing the unbearable pain of a loved one’s death—whether weeks or years since their passing.

Romance writer, Libby Small, has just been dumped. By her agent, her publisher and now her husband and she's finally had enough. So she's over the moon when she's given the opportunity to ghostwrite a novel for ex Miss Ireland, Lulubelle Ryan. Particularly as it means travelling around the world as part of Lulubelle's entourage. Two months to write a raunchy bonk buster set in the glitzy world of modelling should be easy - right? Wrong! Especially when it becomes very clear to Libby that the story behind this book is very close to Lulubelle's heart for a reason. There are some benefits though - and Lulubelle's handsome and enigmatic manager, Leo, is certainly part of the attraction - if only Libby could forget about her other male addiction.

Book Short Summary:

A cowboy loving an Indian— an inconceivable thought to an 1898 Oklahoma man. But when a ranch hand falls through a time travel portal and lands in an Indian’s backyard, she battles her pride to help him while he battles his prejudice about being in an interracial relationship. Having a friend in the quantum physics field makes Anya Littlefeather slightly more receptive to Cody Bell’s claim that his horse tossed him from 1898 into her backyard of 2013. He certainly seems to be an honest-to-God— albeit prejudiced— handsome cowboy who is utterly surprised by the established neighborhood where he claims his family farm once stood. He’s a drifter, and Anya has too many abandonment issues with men to even consider dating someone who already breaks two of her four relationship requirements. This frees Anya to help Cody as one human does another, and not worry about the possibility of dating. Cody had been racing home with medicine to save his niece’s life when his horse tossed him into this magical place. This Indian squaw confuses him, for she doesn’t act the way his grandfather spoke of them during the Indian/Settler Wars, and she’s courteous and helpful and respects him as a man. Her offer to help get him home seems genuine, and he fears every day spent in this amazing land jeopardizes the life of his beloved niece. The last woman he loved died, and that scar makes him hesitant to love again, regardless of his attraction. As the time draws near for the next portal to open, Cody has to decide whether to go save the life of the last of his family, or stay here and start a new one. Anya has to either add one more abandonment issue to her list when he goes home, or ask Cody to let his niece perish and stay with her forever.

Book Short Summary:

Heterosexuality is a largely ‘silent’ set of practices and identities – it is assumed to be everywhere and yet often remains unnamed and unexplored. Despite recent changes in the theoretical understanding and representation of sexuality, heterosexuality continues to be socially normative. Forging a new agenda for the study of heterosexuality, this in-depth volume, the first research monograph to focus on heterosexuality and society, presents an empirical study of the construction, negotiation and enactment of heterosexual sexuality. Using detailed interview data, it investigates how heterosexuality, as both an identity and a set of practices, is accomplished through love relationships. Rather than assuming that romantic love is an outcome or expression of a pre-defined sexuality, Johnson explores how sexuality is brought to life through love. Situated in the ongoing theoretical debates concerning the relationship between gender and sexuality, Paul Johnson’s book shows how ways of loving are interwoven with the construction, practice, regulation and government of heterosexuality. Excellently written, this important book also looks at gender in society, and explores such areas as heterosexual subjectivities and the borders of desire. As such, the research it contains will be valuable for all students of sociology and gender studies.
