If The Creek Don T Rise from the Author: Leah Weiss. He's gonna be sorry he ever messed with me and Loretta Lynn Sadie Blue has been a wife for fifteen days. That's long enough to know she should have never hitched herself to Roy Tupkin, even with the baby. Sadie is desperate to make her own mark on the world, but in remote Appalachia, a ticket out of town is hard to come by, and hope often gets stomped out. When a stranger sweeps into Baines Creek and knocks things off kilter, Sadie finds herself with an unexpected lifeline...if she can just figure out how to use it. This intimate insight into a fiercely proud, tenacious community unfolds through the voices of the forgotten folks of Baines Creek. With a colorful cast of characters that each contribute a new perspective, IF THE CREEK DON'T RISE is a debut novel bursting with heart, honesty, and homegrown grit.

If The Creek Don T Rise from the Author: Rita Williams. When Rita Williams was four, her mother died in a Denver boarding house. This death delivered Rita into the care of her aunt Daisy, the last surviving African American widow of a Union soldier and a maverick who had spirited her sharecropping family out of the lynching South and reinvented them as ranch hands and hunting guides out West. But one by one they slipped away, to death or to an easier existence elsewhere, leaving Rita as Daisy's last hope to right the racial wrongs of the past and to make good on a lifetime of thwarted ambition. If the Creek Don't Rise tells how Rita found her way out from under this crippling legacy and, instead of becoming "a perfect credit to her race," discovered how to become herself. Set amid the harsh splendor of the Colorado Rockies, this is a gorgeous, ruthless, and unique account of the lies families live-and the moments of truth and beauty that save us.

If The Creek Don T Rise from the Author: Nancy Hartney. A Creole beauty. Eccentric sisters and a black rose. One granny woman and a red button. Church suppers and bingo nights. A poet out of his element. Dreams of Mexico. The shadowy world of thoroughbred horse racing. If the Creek Don't Rise is a collection of hard-used characters, tangled relationships, family angst, and fortitude. Step into the Deep South and experience the lives and hardships, hopes and dreams, of folk who have nothing except grit-and sometimes love-as their currency. Eighteen tales and six postcard vignettes, highlighted with artwork by Susan Raymond, make this collection a skillful and moving exploration of the commonplace, the hidden, and the unforgettable.

If The Creek Don T Rise from the Author: Jane Ansel Elkins. "Many of these poems are set in the landscape of the South. They center on the appetite--for sex, violence, tribal vengeance. These poems aim to look at the experience of the Southerner. The journalist Marshall Frady wrote, "The Southerner always tended to believe with his blood rather than his intellect." These poems are about those who believe with their blood."--Abstract from author supplied metadata.

from the Author: Daniel James Brown. «Диво в Берліні» — дві майстерно зшиті сюжетні лінії, написані талановитим оповідачем. Перша оповідає історію простих американських хлопців, які в один із найстрашніших періодів в історії США — Велику депресію — відвойовують своє право на гідне майбутнє. Друга переносить нас до Німеччини, де Гітлер уже задумав свій найстрашніший план — Другу світову. Перш ніж розв’язати війну, він прагне приспати ворога: показати, що Німеччина гостинна, вільна і мирна держава. Задля цього керівництво країни вирішує провести Олімпійські ігри 1936-го року, куди, у складі збірної США з веслування, потрапляють наші герої. Створена на основі реальних подій, книга розповідає про дружбу, вірність і відчайдушну боротьбу добра та зла. А головне — проводить паралелі з сучасним світом, змушує замислитись над тим, що подібний сценарій може повторитися, або навіть повторюється вже сьогодні.
