Did I Ever Have Children?: An Alzheimer’s Journey in Two Voices

by Marilyn Stevens

When her already ailing mother Margaret began showing signs of dementia, Marilyn Stevens decided the best option would be to move back to her childhood home to care for her. In the eight years that followed, their relationship changed for the better, even as her mother's Alzheimer's worsened. In a poignant, warm, and often humorous narrative in two voices, Marilyn takes the reader through eight years of the challenges and rewards of being her mother's caregiver. We hear firsthand Margaret's frustrations with the loss of her memory and learn how Marilyn -- by trial and error (and a lot of support) -- learned to deal with the many stages of her mother's condition. A must-read for anyone facing caregiving of a loved one ... or for anyone who has traveled the same path as Marilyn and her mom....

A Chelsea Concerto

by Frances Faviell

‘Take off your coat,’ said the doctor. I took it off. ‘And your dress,’ he said. ‘It’s too dangerous – the folds may catch in the debris and bring the whole thing down.’ I took off the dress. ‘Fine,’ he said shortly. ‘It’ll have to be head first. We’ll hold your thighs. Go down and see if it’s possible to give an injection. Can you grip the torch with your teeth?’Frances Faviell lived in Chelsea before and during the London Blitz, having became a Red Cross volunteer when World War II began. Chelsea was particularly heavily bombed and the author was often in the heart of the action, witnessing or involved in fascinating and horrific events through 1940 and 1941. Her memoir evokes an unforgettable cast, Londoners and refugees alike, caught up together in extraor...

A Preacher Called Sinn: The Turbulent Life of a Protestant Minister

by M. Duane Sinn

"The seeds of my undoing as a Protestant minister may have begun with my name."

In 1995, Duane Sinn endured a brutal media attack that would have crushed a lesser man. In this nostalgic memoir, Sinn introduces us to his great grandfather who emigrated from Germany, and all of the people who impacted his early life. He tells of his family's struggles to survive on a Nebraska farm after the Great Depression, and how World War II changed all of their lives. He discusses his parents' troubled relationship, the powerful effect of his grandparents' unconditional love, his awkward sexual awakening, and early determination to follow his own path.

A PREACHER CALLED SINN opens with a country boy's dream of leaving the farm, and his stubborn rejection of ag college at the Un...

My Cleanest Dirty Shorts

by Kevin R. Hill

These are the stories that Jimmy Buffett should have written about the Caribbean, the wild times, the crocodiles migrating through the village and poodles disappearing. All of the stories, whether wild or literary, are based on personal experience. Some are memoir. In 1985 I moved to a tiny fishing village on the Caribbean coast of the Yucatan peninsula. Sometimes I had to drive to Cancun to get a tomato. There was one tin roof market in town that got beef once a week. To get fresh fish I had to wait for the fishermen to return with the day's catch. How did I know if they were back? Easy. I just looked at the sky over the beach. If frigate birds were gliding along the beach, the fishermen had not returned yet. If there were no birds flying, that meant they were feeding on the scraps as th...

People: Inside the Lives of Everyday Folks from Sea to Shining Sea

by Clark III, John H.

Revealing the Power of the Human Spirit
The newlyweds who arrived in San Francisco just in time for the devastating earthquake…

The centenarian who recalls learning to drive at age 11 and taking over the household duties when she was only 15…

The man who survived the Luby’s Cafeteria massacre of 1991 in Killeen, Texas…

When disaster strikes, it often brings out a strength you never knew you had. The stories of these people are no exception. But there are ordinary triumphs, too. Adopting dogs that might otherwise get put to sleep. Retiring on the beach, even if you don’t have a lot of money. Finding love in your family and friends.
These things—from the seemingly small to the overwhelming—make up life as we know it.

Less than Human

by Allen Long

In Less than Human, Allen Long tells the story of his often nightmarish childhood in the wealthy suburbs of D.C., the wonders and mysteries of teenage love, his ill-advised journeys into corporate America and a hellish marriage, and ultimate breakdown. And yet, his story is mostly one of triumph. He draws strength from the joys of fatherhood, he finds true love in his second marriage, and through working with psychotherapists and leading a life rich in self-examination, he overcomes both child abuse and the resulting PTSD, finally learning that instead of being less than... he is, indeed... human.

Less than Human follows an unconventional path, arranged as much by theme and association as by chronology. These stories take many forms, from driving narrative to lyrical reverie, ...

A READER'S STORY: My Love for Lionel Dahmer's Book about his Son, Jeff

by George Stietz

In the Spring of 1994, the author was a 21 year-old university student with a high grade point average, yet no overall sense of direction--a secret he tried to hide from all who knew and admired him. Longing for an unreachable young woman two years his senior, he discovered two things in earnest: Crown Royal Whiskey and Lionel Dahmer's book: A FATHER'S STORY. The latter not only taught him that the etymology of human behavior is a phenomena largely cloaked in mystery, it also showed him that sometimes no bridge can link people's psyches: Even those who are father and son.The former, unfortunately, demonstrated that alcohol induced aggression and rage are certainly not something reserved for Jeffrey Dahmer and other serial killers. The FORMER is another story, however. This book is abou...

Broomstick Murderer : The True Story of Kenneth McDuff

by Natalie Marshall

Kenneth Allen McDuff, also known as the “Broomstick Killer” because of the way he murdered one of his first victims: 16-year-old Edna Louise Sullivan who he killed in August 1966 along with her boyfriend and his cousin. After being sentenced to death, the United States Supreme Court, in 1972, determined that the death penalty was unconstitutional and, as a result, McDuff’s death sentence was commuted to life in prison. He was eventually paroled and killed at least five more women before being rearrested, tried, and given the death penalty again…twice. McDuff was executed on 17 November 1998 and has the distinction of providing the impetus for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice—the third largest system in the United States—to overhaul its entire system, particularly the pa...

Coming Home: …Lessons I didn’t get in Sunday School

by Jon Dufendach

Jesus Christ is one of the most controversial figures of all time. Like it or not, He is the voice of God. In the end every knee shall bow at the very name of Jesus. No one knows the hour of His return, but it’s closer than for any previous generation. We’re in the time of the 11th hour workers.

One such worker has recorded stories from his everyday life and in so doing has come to the realization the age of Grace is coming to its fullness. Soon there will be time no more. These are a few, very few, of the events emerging as the age closes, and God, who is not willing that any should perish, is sounding the final call: “Come Home.” He stands at the door and knocks.

Don’t bother with this book if you’re not interested in your eternal well-being. Bu...

The Days That Don't Disappear

by Garry Crystal

From the author of the novel, Leaving London and the short story collection, All of Us With Our Pointless Worries and Inconsequential Dramas.

How can you ever hope to become a well-adjusted adult when your only role models are violent, bullying teachers?

The Days That Don’t Disappear is a true story set during the 1970s in a Scottish, Catholic primary school.

This is the first-hand tale of four years of violent bullying towards children, not from other children, but from school teachers who were in a position of trust. An honest account of a less than idyllic childhood and a story of growing up and learning what life can really be like if you happen to be unfortunate enough.

As an award-winning social activist and mentor in the Big Brother/Big Sister program, former journalist and documentary filmmaker, Aaron Kirk Douglas illuminates the emotional turmoil inherent in mentoring an at-risk youth.
