DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

They say it’s about the journey, not the destination… Charlene “Charlie” Moreau is back in St. Francisville, Louisiana, to work on a movie. One night, she stumbles across the body of a Civil War reenactor, the second murdered in two days. Charlie is shocked to learn that her father—a guide on the Journey, a historic paddle wheeler that’s sponsoring the reenactment—is a suspect. Meanwhile, Ethan Delaney, new to the FBI’s Krewe of Hunters, is brought in on the case. He and Charlie have a history of their own, dating back to when he rescued her from a graveyard—led there by a Confederate ghost! Charlie arranges a Mississippi River cruise so she and Ethan can get close to the reenactors, find out who knows what, who has a motive. They discover a lot more as they resume the relationship that ended ten years ago…but might die, along with them, on the Journey.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

At once an incredible adventure narrative and a penetrating biographical portrait, The River of Doubt is the true story of Theodore Roosevelt’s harrowing exploration of one of the most dangerous rivers on earth. The River of Doubt—it is a black, uncharted tributary of the Amazon that snakes through one of the most treacherous jungles in the world. Indians armed with poison-tipped arrows haunt its shadows; piranhas glide through its waters; boulder-strewn rapids turn the river into a roiling cauldron. After his humiliating election defeat in 1912, Roosevelt set his sights on the most punishing physical challenge he could find, the first descent of an unmapped, rapids-choked tributary of the Amazon. Together with his son Kermit and Brazil’s most famous explorer, Cândido Mariano da Silva Rondon, Roosevelt accomplished a feat so great that many at the time refused to believe it. In the process, he changed the map of the western hemisphere forever. Along the way, Roosevelt and his men faced an unbelievable series of hardships, losing their canoes and supplies to punishing whitewater rapids, and enduring starvation, Indian attack, disease, drowning, and a murder within their own ranks. Three men died, and Roosevelt was brought to the brink of suicide. The River of Doubt brings alive these extraordinary events in a powerful nonfiction narrative thriller that happens to feature one of the most famous Americans who ever lived. From the soaring beauty of the Amazon rain forest to the darkest night of Theodore Roosevelt’s life, here is Candice Millard’s dazzling debut.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

ABOUT THE BOOK The story of one of President Theodore Roosevelt’s most dangerous adventures, Candice Millard’s The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt’s Darkest Journey, goes beyond telling the tale of Roosevelt’s harrowing passage along an uncharted South American river to explore his character and the motivation that drove him to seek such a challenge. Family, dogged determination, his personal philosophy, and political loss are all elements that contribute to this portrait of a complex man and make him more than a one-dimensional historical figure. Millard conducted extensive research to understand both the members of the expedition and the area through which they traveled, providing depth and detail to a real-life voyage gone wrong. In the “Notes” at the end of the book, the sources she cites fill 38 pages and include scores of news reports of the day, transcripts of lectures, and letters. The “Select Bibliography” occupies another eight pages and lists books and papers on the people of the rain forest, as well as its plants and animals, expedition members’ personal accounts of the journey, and Roosevelt’s own writing. The knowledge she acquired allows her to capture a sense of both the people and the place and the risk the explorers were taking as they headed into the unknown. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK More menacing was the constant presence of the Cinta Larga, a tribe of cannibals who blended into the landscape and never showed themselves, but kept watch on the foreigners who had encroached on their territory. Enduring near starvation as their food ran low, many members of the expedition became ill, most notably, Roosevelt himself, who was suffering from malaria and developed an infection after injuring his leg on a rock in the river. Near death, he decided to take his own life with a lethal dose of morphine, believing that it was better to sacrifice one life than risk the safety of the whole team. Kermit, however, took charge, and the expedition moved on, carrying Roosevelt on one of the dugout canoes. The expedition became an unrelenting ordeal and struggle for survival as fear, hunger, exhaustion, and disease sapped the men’s strength and spirit. Finally, they spotted evidence of rubber tappers on the river bank, signaling that they had reached a known part of the river. Settlers there gave them food and a dry place to sleep, and the worst was over... Buy a copy to keep reading!

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

In the tradition of When Bad Things Happen to Good People, a book that explains the transformative power of suffering Most people understand that suffering and sorrow are inevitable parts of every life and that illness, death, or loss of a loved one are universal experiences, not retribution or a symptom of bad luck. But few of us comprehend the ways in which suffering can give rise to growth. In this sensitive and caring book, Kathleen Brehony describes the experiences of people who have endured life's trials and consequently found deeper spiritual and psychological meaning in their lives. Drawing on a rich selection of mythological and religious stories from many faiths, Berhony provides a historical and cultural context that enriches the meaning of these deeply personal tales. After the Darkest Hour explores the qualities--psychological, behavioral, and spiritual--of those who have turned periods of pain and suffering into opportunities for growth and renewal. The final chapters offer exercises that will help readers approach the difficult situations they face in a more conscious, enlightened way, as well as specific suggestions for creating personal healing rituals.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

"The rare immigrant memoir that's also a page turner. Berk recalls a childhood in South Africa that eventually led him to Los Angeles, where he presided over the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. His stories about Jodie Foster, Brad Pitt and Meryl Streep are as unguarded as the Golden Globes. A journey worth taking." - Ramin Setoodeh, Film Editor New York, Variety "Phil Berk seems to have lived a "crowded hour" for his entire life - and it is all spelled out, beautifully, energetically, and with remarkable insight, in his memoir With Signs and Wonders. The inner workings of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has always been argued and speculated about for as long as they have been an organization. With this book, we get the tic-toc of it all - rumors confirmed, rumors destroyed, and a panoply of never-told stories from a man that wasn't only deep in the organization, but who actually led it - the debates, the infighting, the stress. It's all here. The book can be devoured in a day - and I doubt any reader can resist turning any page once it has been begun. But when you are done you will understand not only Berk's remarkable life but also his unquenchable and valuable love of film." - Rod Lurie, Writer-Director The Contender, The Last Castle, Resurrecting the Champ, Nothing but the Truth "An engaging memoir of an unusual and fascinating life's journey." - Stephen Farber, President, Los Angeles Film Critics Association "Very few people live a tenth of the lives that Philip Berk has lived. From war to love to eight-times elected President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, his epoch-spanning story turns the pages with the same breathless, confiding style he has used for decades to report - and make - the history of his beloved entertainment industry. To read this uber-connected writer's story is to peek behind the curtains of the singularly-unique HFPA, and better know the sprawling industry surrounding Hollywood's most riotous awards. Phil Berk is a very smart, very kind and very special soul, and his story should be mandatory reading for those who seek to know what makes our industry tick." - Andy Corren, Talent Manager Philip Berk has served four two year terms as president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. He was educated at UCLA where he studied motion pictures. After earning a master's degree, he worked as an educator for 25 years supervising award winning programs in cinema, forensics, and journalism. For ten yeas he was the film critic for the B'nai B'rith Messenger (later Los Angeles Jewish Times) and has chaired the jury at the Guadalajara Film Festival, Hawaian Film festival, and the Bahamas Film Festival.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This anthology is a dare! It is an emotional roller-coaster taking you on a swift ride highlighting plights with strokes of despair, sadness and destruction of a fellow-being. It encapsulates the three basic emotions and enables you to relate to the character via those channels. Once the initial bond between you and each character has been established, the phenomenon of empathy should naturally take its course. The stories involve different scenarios with different characters of different age group in different eras and of various nationalities or ethnic backgrounds hence allowing the pivotal powers of religion, culture, traditions and creed, to mould a bond with the story along with that character in place at that time. The book is merely a virtual tour into the world of the disadvantaged and the scenarios that unravel to seal the fate of the dejected.
