Download and read online Friends And Then Some in PDF and EPUB One of acclaimed author Debbie Macomber’s classic novels, this tender story of two people daring to be more than “just friends” is available for the first time as an eBook. Lily Morrissey knows exactly what she wants in a husband: a big bank account. Not that she’s greedy or shallow; she just needs the security for herself and her beloved grandmother. But husband-hunting is harder than she expected, especially with her best friend Jake in the way. In fact, Jake—who would be perfect for her if he weren’t so committed to everything money can’t buy—is becoming downright distracting, with those jade eyes and that disarming grin. All Jake wants is the freedom to sail his boat, write his stories, and live life on his own terms. Then his best friend tells him she’s going groom shopping. But Jake can’t imagine life without Lily or bear the thought of her in another man’s arms. How can a rootless guy living a no-strings existence and a woman looking for someone she can count on both get what they need? By letting their hearts choose love. BONUS: This edition includes excerpts from Debbie Macomber's Last One Home and The Inn at Rose Harbor.

Download and read online 1969 and Then Some in PDF and EPUB The year when everything needed to be experienced and tried, when innocence was tempted, played, and lost. 1969 was that pivotal year for the baby boomers. Young and innocent, they were given the ultimate freedoms and were faced with growing up. This touching, hilarious memoir is the true story of a late sixties grand tour of Europe—a life-defining parable, for those who remember and for those who can’t. Never before and not since have a handful of seasons so exquisitely defined the difference between right and wrong. With the gift of youth they saw, sensed, and savored the laughably clear distinction between profit motive and greed, between truth and propaganda, between national interest and defense contractors, between a lovely cloud of smoke and the smoke of napalm, and between the phantoms of security and the dangers of complacency and atrophy. Stoned to the gills and then some, these adventurers saw and felt and knew things that no generation before did. Some fully engaged in the counterculture while others merely observed, sticking a left foot in, pulling a left foot out, but not quite jumping to the full hokeypokey. It was an incredible time of self-discovery, of love, and of finding out what you were made of.

This book illustrates why Southern food is finally recognized as the driving force in the American culinary movement today.
Download and read online Strangers in Their Own Land in PDF and EPUB In Strangers in Their Own Land, the renowned sociologist Arlie Hochschild embarks on a thought-provoking journey from her liberal hometown of Berkeley, California, deep into Louisiana bayou country—a stronghold of the conservative right. As she gets to know people who strongly oppose many of the ideas she famously champions, Hochschild nevertheless finds common ground and quickly warms to the people she meets—among them a Tea Party activist whose town has been swallowed by a sinkhole caused by a drilling accident—people whose concerns are actually ones that all Americans share: the desire for community, the embrace of family, and hopes for their children. Strangers in Their Own Land goes beyond the commonplace liberal idea that these are people who have been duped into voting against their own interests. Instead, Hochschild finds lives ripped apart by stagnant wages, a loss of home, an elusive American dream—and political choices and views that make sense in the context of their lives. Hochschild draws on her expert knowledge of the sociology of emotion to help us understand what it feels like to live in “red” America. Along the way she finds answers to one of the crucial questions of contemporary American politics: why do the people who would seem to benefit most from “liberal” government intervention abhor the very idea?
Download and read online A Thousand Years and Then Some in PDF and EPUB The story goes back to the fifth century when Saint Patrick converted the pagan Irish to Christianity. Pictures of ancient crosses are testimony to the saint's arrival in Ireland. There is a graveyard, surrounded by a stone wall, where a wheeled cross stands at the entrance and a small stone structure with a stone roof, inside the graveyard known as the skull house, it allures visitors from all over Europe year round. The stone structure is Saint Finnian's mortuary. The saint was abbot of the monastery, where monks were sent out to Europe to teach and to spread the faith. The unearthing of a beautifully inscribed slab stone in a monastery graveyard revealed the grave of Magnus, a Norseman from the isles. He was the forefather of the author's. Maternal family, the Norseman came to Ireland by way of Scotland many years ago. The book describes the lives of the author's great grandparents, grandparents and his parents before developing into a memoir, beginning with his school days in a two-room schoolhouse in Ireland and through the years of World War II. He lived with his grandparents on a farm and was hired to a farmer in the north of Ireland at the Derry rabble, a form of slavery in past years. He returned to Brooklyn and his parents in 1947. The book describes his life as a fireman as well as his son's, a member of rescue one at the sabotage of twin towers on 9/11.
