Want to know how governments use FIAT paper currencies to rob citizens of their wealth and freedom? Read this book, then vote, while you still can. Slogans like Social Justice are not new.

Most books about the Mayflower cover only the voyage and a short period following. A false perception occurs in many people that the Pilgrims were all alone in the new world. This book starts before the voyage and covers the reasons the Pilgrims differed from the Puritans from whom they sought separation. Although many details may be missing, the author captures the real reason the Pilgrims came here -- not for religious freedom as is so often stated -- but for isolation from the other religions which they feared would convert their children away from the "true path". It covers the period following the pilgrimage, as the Puritans arrived at Boston, fought their own internal battles, and exiled some to such places as New Hampshire. Perhaps the most important information (which was well-known to genealogists but less known to the typical college history student) the author covers the growing tension between the Pilgrims and Puritans on one hand, and the American Indians on the other, culminating in King Phillips War. He also covers the taking of Indian slaves by the newcomers and the effort to ship Indians off to the slave markets in the Caribbean. The book is well-documented with the references and quotes presented in an easy to use format. I commend the book to anyone wanting to "round-out" his knowledge of that period.

I thought this was a full size book but it is a very tiny edition. I am unable to read the print even with reading glasses on. Buyer beware. The book content is good just the format is unuseable for me.

I loved this book. It's a collection of short stories, so it's a very easy read. Most of the stories leave you with goosebumps down to your toes, knowing that God and his angels are around us all the time, whether we know it or not. I enjoyed this book so much, I bought one for my mom, sister, and nieces, and gave them as gifts. I also have the rest of Joan's books in my collection, and re-read them when I feel a little down. It's a great pick-me up, in a very quick, easy to read format.

This book is actually about Students with Autism Spectrum disorders for teachers in the field. It is textbook format but gives the reader a rich background in terms, recognizing and teaching those with ASD. It defines terms, gives ideas and provides answers. I would recommend it to those who are trying to work on the deficits of communication, socialization and academic skills. It also gives ideas on broadening the interests of those with ASD as they have restrictive ones. It provides an overview of ABA, the history of autism, and ways to accommodate sensory issues as well. Definitely not an "easy" read but for those of you who want to research this topic or see what the teachers in Special Ed have been taught, it is superior.

That sequels can be almost as good as the originals! Ladies of Longbourn, the fourth book in the acclaimed Pemberley Chronicles series brings us inside the lives of the third generation of Darcys, Bingleys, Fitzwilliams, et al. These are the now grown-up grandchildren of our favorites. And once again, we readers are introduced to a number of interesting new characters, who provide additional layers of richness to an already complex story-line. Anne-Marie Bingley is the granddaughter of Jane and Charles. A strong, independent, and seemingly unsinkable young woman, Anne-Marie (deeply impacted by the tragic death of her mother and the odd circumstances surrounding it) is drawn by a number of social and peer pressures into a loveless marriage. Her family and friends are stunned and dismayed but can do nothing other than accept her decision. Being an honorable and deeply principled person (like her father and grandfather), Anne-Marie recognizes her mistake, agonizes over its implications, but remains determined to live with her decision. And for a while, outward appearances suggest that Anne-Marie is content in her marriage. Events transpire which enable her to escape her loveless marriage, but Anne-Marie's honor will not allow her to shake the feelings of guilt and mortification which remain it its wake. She turns for support to the strong Austen-inspired women of her family and receives it in full measure. Determined to move on with her life, Anne-Marie turns her passion toward community service. She begins lobbying for the building of a public children's hospital. Unfortunately, the political leaders of the time see these institutions as the purview of the church or of private funding. And so despite the full support of her family, it appears that a political champion will be needed to make Anne-Marie's dream come true. Her white knight appears in the form of a young, idealistic new MP (appropriately named Colin) who becomes not only her champion in the halls of Parliament, but also the one who would rescue her from a life of loneliness and self-reproach. As in her previous books, Ms. Collins adds a dose of humor to the Ladies of Longbourn. This time it takes the form of Lydia Wickham in a cameo appearance. "Lydia was Lydia still; untamed, unabashed, wild, noisy, and fearless." In her later years, Lydia has also become thoughtless and greedy. Elizabeth's long-ago wish of "meeting with another Mr. Collins" is also fulfilled in this book, through the introduction of Mr. Griffin, the lugubrious rector of Netherfield. Ladies of Longbourn is a wonderful continuation of the Pemberley series. It expertly brings the reader along the continuum of changing English society, economics, and politics. And all the while, we remain comfortably ensconced in the rose-colored sitting room with north-facing windows in what could be Pemberley, Netherfield or Longbourn.

I am a Special Education teacher of adolescent children, and when my students move from the elementary level to the secondary level, a gift of this book has been a tradition of mine....the price on overstock is a great value, the service was prompt and efficient, and the book itself is a wonderful gift for anyone at a moving-on point in life....

I am so excited by the discovery of this new book--The Crown on Your Head-by Nancy Tillman. It is beautifully illustrated...but more than that, it is a story to share with the people you LOVE whether young or old. It celebrates the beauty of each of us----a reminder of how "special" we are. Read it aloud. An excerpt: "On the day that we met and I put you to bed, I noticed a crown on the top of your head. It was made up of sparkling, glimmering things. Like moonlight, and fireflies, and dragonfly wings." It is a delight....beautiful words, beautiful art and a beautiful message--one we all need.

The book has some good sections in it. It also has some problems. One example: It maintains that evolution and creation are compatable.

I am consistently amazed at Ms. Kirkpatrick’s historical fiction books. They not only bring to light the person they are written about but many social and cultural differences in that time period. I had never even considered all photography in the early 20th century involved until I read this book. Jessie Gaebele was a bit of a modern woman in the sense that she wanted more than anything to pursue a career in photography. Women just didn’t do that; they weren’t supposed to have careers at all! Even though she still lived at home under the watchful eye of her parents, she managed to follow her dream. I believe her confidence and poise came from her all-consuming love of taking pictures. In that era it was a bit more than just grabbing a Polaroid or digital camera. I had never considered how dangerous it was until I read about Jessie. The chemicals used to process the pictures were toxic not only to touch but the fumes were poisonous too. Photographers often suffered from chemical poisoning that made them very ill and ultimately dementia and organ failure. In addition to the chemicals there was the danger of explosions and fires from the flash powders that could kill or maim. Given how protected women were during this time, you can understand how bold Jessie’s pursuit was! This doesn’t even take into account that she was only 15 years old at the time! Her opportunity came when she is hired as an assistant to Mr. Bauer of Bauer Studios. She would gain experience and knowledge to hopefully someday open or studio. Although she was young she proved herself a quick learner, talented and responsible. I learned right along with Jessie as she apprenticed. I never thought of how the only lighting they hand was natural light from windows, or how skilled one would have to be to pose subjects considering this. Her new job brought her face to face with something she had never dreamed of; she became emotionally attracted to her employer. Matters were further complicated because he was not only married (albeit very unhappily to a petty nervous wife in fragile health) but he was also 26 years older than Jesse! Before long Mr. Bauer returned that attraction. This was not a sordid tale as one might think. It is a beautiful story of having self-control in the face of strong, sinful temptations and staying true to God rather than giving into fleshly desires. Her close family’s intuition and God’s convicting hand kept Jessie from straying. The author was very tasteful in handling this. The book is made even more exciting because it is based on the life of Jane Kirkpatrick’s grandmother who was a photographer during that time and even owned her own studio! The vintage pictures placed at the beginning of various chapters were so special. They were actually taken by the author’s grandmother! I always look forward to Jane Kirkpatrick’s books. They are in a league of their own! Be sure to go to http://www.jkbooks.com/ and check out more of Jane Kirkpatrick’s wonderful books! I received this book free from the author. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

This book is awesome for studying the New Testament. The author, by taking the Greek words and explaining them, takes understanding the New Testament to a complete different level. It has increased my knowledge beyond measure. I learned so much from the book that I purchased two more copies for Christmas presents. Plus, the format, written in daily devotionals, makes studying the Greek words easy and fun.
Book clubs are a great way to indulge your reading habit while making long-lasting friendships. Furthermore, book clubs serve as an excellent venue for discussing and sharing your thoughts on books. Getting different opinions from a book club discussion can supplement or change your own view of the book and introduce you to new viewpoints or thoughts that you may not have come up with on your own. Anyone can be an integral part of a book club; you don't have to be a literary critic or professor to contribute. It's easy to start a book club; just follow these steps.
