Annie Yoder did something different during her rumspringa, she went into the English world and became a nurse. Upon her return she married herbalist, Samuel Yoder, who took care of the local Amish’s basic medical needs. As the story opens they are expecting their first child and her brother, Adam and his wife Leah are expecting for the first time too. Leah is carrying twins. The two women are very close. Annie wants to make Leah a special quilt for the babies. Thinking she has time to spare, (Leah isn’t due for two months), Annie gets a late start.
Leah unexpectedly goes into early labor, endangering her life and the babies. She is must be taken to a hospital in Philadelphia where she and the babies can be cared for. Annie agrees to stay with her until the babies are born.
Adam and Leah have been having struggles in their marriage since Leah became pregnant. Neither knows what the problem is and the distance grows between them. The sudden separation they experience whil...
i bought this as a gift and was happy to find the cover is heavy-duty and has a 'tooled', high-value look to it, not just a flat print. haven't read it but you can find a 'look-inside' version elsewhere on the web to preview the contents.
I have no hesitation in declaring that RUTH is one of the best novels I have ever read. I found it a far richer, more complex and intellectually meaty treatment of the subject of adultery than THE SCARLET LETTER.
A generation of students would be much better served if they were introduced to this work of Elizabeth Gaskell's. The fact that we think very
differently about the subject than did the people of Gaskell's time should not be a drawback at all. We should be as open to questioning our own
time as we are to questioning Gaskell's. Her story and the struggles of her characters to live up to what they believe does a good job of raising
questions that are still pertinent 160 years after she wrote RUTH.
I have 16 gouldian finches but did not have a book detailing their care requirements - nutrition, housing, illnesses, breeding, etc. - so needed one, and this book fit the bill. It has excellent ratings on the other sites where I had been looking, not realizing that Overstock carried pet care books, so as soon as I saw it was available here (and for less than elsewhere), I didn't hesitate to purchase it. It is an excellent guide filled with an extensive amount of information from feeding to genetics and breeding to building aviaries, in writing, "blueprint" drawings, and an abundance of pertinent photographs (especially concerning the different color variations). "Gouldian Finches:" provides all of the essential information - and beyond - that a keeper or breeder of Lady Gould, a/k/a gouldian, finches needs to keep these sweet little "living works of art" happy and thriving. I highly recommend the book.

This non-fiction book by Alejandro Estrada is unlike any other book you'll ever read. Everything in this book is real and It's been banned by Wikipedia and the Order of Freemasonry. This is the biggest Whistleblowing Truther, since the Pelican Brief.
I love to read mysteries, historical fiction, classics and young adult fiction, but I have never read westerns or science fiction novels. it's time to branch out and give these other genres a try. Does anyone have suggestions for novice (and wary) sci-fi and western readers?
Try out Brent Weeks, his Shadow Trilogy is a great start for a new fantasy read, keeps the overwhelming fantasy elements scant, tells a great story with relatable characters, and is great for a re-read.
Try reading Author Rusty Nugent. He is a Dark Fantasy writer. The title of the book series is Moonwarriors. It's an good werewolves vs evil vampires series. It is the best novel I have read from a new author.
I may have missed it but I don't see Elmore Leonard's name among the Western writers' names in the recommendations. I think you might enjoy his Westerns. He's known for his more modern works (action? crime? He's really hard to categorize) but he used to be a very prolific western writer - my husband is a huge fan of all of his work and my father loved his Westerns. By now you've probably discovered a few more writers so please come back and share!
