All Good Women from the Author: Valerie Miner. As World War II rages abroad, a group of women forge the bonds of sisterhood in America In 1938, while tensions in Europe are reaching a boiling point, four young women with big ambitions enter secretarial school in San Francisco. Motivated to attain the financial stability that eluded their parents, they go to battle for their futures. Moira, of Scottish descent, dreams of being an actress. Ann yearns for the education her Jewish immigrant parents provided for her brother, but not for her. Japanese American Wanda experiences firsthand the racial injustices running rampant in the United States. And Teddy, who left the Dust Bowl for sunny California, comes to startling realizations about herself as the war progresses. These women will be both buoyed and challenged by their dreams, experiencing love, loss, and everything in between. Against the backdrop of a nation gripped by fear and paranoia, Miner eloquently captures the spirit of wartime on the home front.

And Good Night To All The Beautiful Young Women A Tale Of Episodic Dementia The Parent Becomes The Child from the Author: Joel Kriofske. A Tale of Storm-Ridden, Dementia-Challenged Parent Care Told with Laugh-Provoking Humor! A poignant look at what may await many of us: The care of an elderly parent with dementia. The author, in later middle age, cares for his father, a former FBI Special Agent with an extravagant sense of humor, but too often angry and combative. Many of the scenes are set in taverns that the old man, an alcoholic, longs or demands to visit for a "shot and a beer" at the end of a day out with his son, the author - himself an alcoholic but a non-practicing one. The book explores the relationship the two had as the author was growing up, a relationship clouded by his sense that he could never please his father, even into adulthood. Devoid of bitterness, the story is told in a clear and winning style with great sensitivity and remarkable humor that cushions sadness and lightens the overall mood. Parents and adult children will greatly benefit from this beautifully-written book, using it as a starting point for discussion of how parents want to be cared for if they sink into dementia, and parent-adult child relationships in general. Both enjoyable and even fun, it's a journey through irony and enlightenment that many "survivors" will recognize, thanks to the author's keen understanding of generational contrasts and familial ties. The dissonant feelings between father and son are humorously described with compassion and understanding. A career Geriatric Social Worker and Health Care Provider who reviewed the book had this to say: "The author 'nails it' in terms of how to deal with a parent's dementia, instead of fighting it. The book contains excellent methodology for anyone dealing with elder care. As an example: The author takes his father to bars, a 'pastime' the old man still thoroughly craves and enjoys. He quietly tells the bartender that his father thinks a mug of beer still costs $0.50, and so gives him cash to cover the real price, thus achieving the b

Is The Bible Good For Women from the Author: Wendy Alsup. Is it possible to embrace the inherent dignity of womanhood while still cherishing the Bible? Many people, both inside and outside the church, are concerned that an orthodox understanding of the Bible is threatening and even harmful to women. After all, the Bible has a number of passages regarding women that are deeply troubling and hard to read. But is that assessment accurate? In this fascinating look at God’s work of redemption from Creation to today, Wendy Alsup explores questions such as: * How does God view justice and equal rights for women? * What does it mean to be made in the image of God? * How have the centuries distorted our interpretation of how God views women? * How did Jesus approach the Old Testament and how does that help us read difficult passages today? * What is the difference between a modern view of feminism and the feminism that Scripture models? * How does the Bible explain the Bible to us? Using a Jesus-centered understanding to look at both God’s grand storyline and specific biblical passages, Alsup gives practical and accessible tools for understanding the noble ways God speaks to and about women in its pages and the dignity He places on His daughters.

Louisa May Alcott (1832 – 1888) was an American novelist best known as author of the novel Little Women, Good Wives and the sequels Little Men and Jo's Boys. The first part of Little Women: or Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy (1868), is a semi-autobiographical account of her childhood with her sisters in Concord, Massachusetts. Part two, or Part Second, also known as Good Wives (1869), followed the March sisters into adulthood and their respective marriages. Little Men (1871) detailed Jo's life at the Plumfield School that she founded with her husband Professor Bhaer at the conclusion of Part Two of Little Women. And Jo's Boys (1886) completed the "March Family Saga". Alcott made women’s rights integral to her stories, and her fiction became her “most important feminist contribution” — even considering all the efforts Alcott made to help facilitate women’s rights during her lifetime.

The Good Women Of China from the Author: Xinran. For eight groundbreaking years, Xinran presented a radio programme in China during which she invited women to call in and talk about themselves. Broadcast every evening, Words on the Night Breeze became famous through the country for its unflinching portrayal of what it meant to be a woman in modern China. Centuries of obedience to their fathers, husbands and sons, followed by years of political turmoil had made women terrified of talking openly about their feelings. Xinran won their trust and, through her compassion and ability to listen, became the first woman to hear their true stories. This unforgettable book is the story of how Xinran negotiated the minefield of restrictions imposed on Chinese journalists to reach out to women across the country. Through the vivid intimacy of her writing, the women's voices confide in the reader, sharing their deepest secrets for the first time. Their stories changed Xinran's understanding of China forever. Her book will reveal the lives of Chinese women to the West as never before.

Chaucer S Legendary Good Women from the Author: Florence Percival. Chaucer's Legend of Good Women is a testament to the disparate views of women prevalent in the Middle Ages. Dr Percival contends that the complex medieval notion of Woman informs the structure of the poem: in the Prologue Chaucer praises conventional ideas of female virtue, while in the Legends he demonstrates a humorous scepticism, apparently influenced by a contemporary antifeminist tradition. The debate Chaucer thus promotes could be relied on to entertain many medieval readers, at the same time that it demonstrates the power of the vernacular translator/poet to handle language wittily and to do just as he pleases with the august texts of the past. This is a comprehensive account of the Legend's interpretative puzzles, which does not ignore the element of political writing, and adds to a close and nuanced reading of the text an examination of literary, historical, and social contexts.

The Good Black Woman from the Author: Palesa Pitso. My book addresses the good black woman in general, no celebrity stuff, just the day to day general life of a Good black woman. The title can be very confusing when you read on but that’s exactly what I want each and every reader to be: Confused. Why Good and why Black? • Good is an Adjective that can mean different things to different people, it replaces other much more weighty adjectives such as Outstanding, Excellent, Fabulous etc. • Good is having admirable, pleasing, superior, or positive qualities.(Collins Dictionary) • Good means morally excellent, virtuous, righteous, suitable or efficient for a purpose. I can go on and on describing the word Good.... Good is just good. Black is symbolic to me in the following way: • Ethnically I am black but also African • Black may denote a Race for people whose skin colour ranges from light to darker shades of Brown. Interesting! (Wikimedia) • In Western fashion Black creates a stylish, sexy, and powerful fashion statement • Several bad incidents have been named Black e.g. .Black Thursday, Black Friday, Black December, Black November etc. • I live in a country where people are sensitive to being called black, others are confused as to whether they are black or not • Black symbolizes secrecy, ambiguity or the unknown e.g. .Black market, Black magic, Blackmail etc. Black is just Black. The book intends to highlight the challenges that are faced by all Good black women, I get into their minds, their bodies, their souls and in their lives, be it Church life, Married Life, Family life ,Relationships to name a few. The book looks at good black women now and is aimed at being interesting to read five to ten years from now on. Life has definitely changed for every Good black women now, there are so many liberties and yet so many constraints. This is rhetoric, as the ‘new independent woman generation’ does not apply across the board. There is so much competition to succeed in the corporate world and so much greed such that other things are compromised i.e. the family, children, relationships, time to play, and so forth. The Good black woman delivers an extra-ordinary juxtaposition of women seen as good yet suffering regardless. Chapter One explores men as a Mystery to women in that men is unique and women fail to understand their uniqueness. It also provides insight as to how men view women and how women will like to be viewed by men. Chapter Two is about woman aspiring to be normal in a rather dysfunctional society. It explores how some working women struggle to survive and thus resort to being mistresses amongst other things. It also looks at raising children in the midst of all the social ills being witnessed today. Chapter Three looks at how some women make sacrifices and marry thinking marriage will be a bed of roses only to find that it’s a bed of thorns mainly because of abstract reasoning abilities that cause conflict in marriages. It also looks at that the way Chapter Four looks at how women regard divorce as a nightmare in that when they marry they think life will be blissful. However, certain circumstances force women to divorce. Note that the writer mentions other causes of divorce other that physical abuse. Chapter Five is about women who have feelings for other women, feelings that they sometimes explore wrongly. It also looks at the different reasons why women get into such unions that do not last though some do. Chapter Six reveals the other side of women, when they betray each other for various reasons. One or two women have encountered one or two forms of betrayal form their friends, family, spouse and so on. Understanding the cause of the betrayal may cause other women to wary of it. This chapter deals with the harsh realities of betrayal. Chapters Seven is about the fear of Loneliness. Need I mention that the more a woman stays in an unhealthy relationship the difficult it is to let go, but the latter happens becaus
