The fantasy novel you've always wished Jane Austen had written Shades of Milk and Honey is exactly what we could expect from Jane Austen if she had been a fantasy writer: Pride and Prejudice meets Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. It is an intimate portrait of a woman, Jane, and her quest for love in a world where the manipulation of glamour is considered an essential skill for a lady of quality. Jane and her sister Melody vie for the attentions of eligible men, and while Jane's skill with glamour is remarkable, it is her sister who is fair of face. When Jane realizes that one of Melody's suitors is set on taking advantage of her sister for the sake of her dowry, she pushes her skills to the limit of what her body can withstand in order to set things right-and, in the process, accidentally wanders into a love story of her own. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

When an inexperienced soldier and local young woman have a serendipitous meeting during the most turbulent time in 20th century Germany, their son, Erich, is forced to grow up in a war-torn country. As he grows, anger and bitterness seeps from the chaotic streets into Erich’s childhood home. He faces numerous challenges such as being born to an unwed mother, foraging for food, water and heat while navigating the dangers of battle externally and internally, exposing the desperation and perils of surviving on a daily basis. In the end, teenaged Erich jumps at the opportunity to emigrate to America. Quickly, he realizes that the change in residence doesn’t necessarily mean totally leaving Germany behind as he is embraced by a group of expats. Ironically, soon thereafter, given his appreciation for the American GI, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and stationed back in Germany. Filled with fascinating and heartbreaking details of a war-scarred Germany, Erich’s story reveals harsh life lessons about growing up, survival, and how eventually life arises from the ashes.

Sarah Getty's poems represent the work of the New Woman, as the nineteenth century called her, now middle-aged, with daughters, private lives, and weathered marriages-but no male figure steps forward in any overshadowing role. Meditating on her own experience of girlhood, marriage, and the mothering of a daughter, Getty combines a feminist sensibility with a profound sense of connection to the natural and mythic realms from which the forces of generation emerge. Her poems, centered in domestic suburbia, range outward through those ancient realms and backward through the history of her family's women. Getty is concerned to explore the losses and absences of the spirit as rehearsed by the flesh, its old enemy and friend. In doing so she reveals a startling sense of humor, which is another way of saying that she has come to terms with reality. These poems-lively, thoughtful, autonomous-reflect her response to that reality.
Divided into five chapters and illustrated by Kaur, the sun and her flowers is a journey of wilting, falling, rooting, rising, and blooming. A celebration of love in all its forms. this is the recipe of life said my mother as she held me in her arms as i wept think of those flowers you plant in the garden each year they will teach you that people too must wilt fall root rise in order to bloom

Since colonization, New Zealand has been mythologized as a 'land of milk and honey'- a promised land of natural abundance and endless opportunity. In the twenty-first century, the country has become literally a land of milk and honey as agricultural exports from such commodities dominate the national economy. But does New Zealand live up to its promise? In this introductory textbook for first year sociology students, some of this country's leading social scientists help us to make sense of contemporary New Zealand. In 21 chapters, the authors examine New Zealand's political identity and constitution; our Maori, Pakeha, Pacific and Asian peoples; problems of class, poverty and inequality; gender and sexualities; and contemporary debates around aging, incarceration and the environment. The authors find a complex society where thirty years of neoliberal economics and globalizing politics have exacerbated inequalities that are differentially experienced by class, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and age. These social divides and problems are at the heart of this text. For sociology students and for a wider audience of New Zealanders, A Land of Milk and Honey? is a lively introduction to where we have come from, where we are now, and where New Zealand society might be headed.

From the Foreword-- In a very short stretch of years, the Judaic Studies Program at the University of California, San Diego, has developed into one of the most important centers for teaching and research in biblical studies, in ancient Near Eastern and biblical archaeology, and more generally in Judaic studies. The program now rivals far older centers of study in these fields in eastern research universities. I have been an admirer of the program for some years, proud of former students of mine whose energy and foresight have contributed to the developments in La Jolla, including the establishment of endowed chairs that guarantee the future of this center and its program. This collection of essays honoring the Judaic Studies Program and its faculty is a testimony to the fecundity of the program in producing scholars, whose essays dominate the collection. Several essays come from other scholars whose home base is in the West and who have engaged in colloquia and common pursuits with the San Diego faculty. . . . There are sections on Genesis, poetry and prophecy, narrative and history, lexicon, archaeology, and (not least) paleography. --Frank Moore Cross Harvard University
