#1 Beyond Our Degrees of Separation: Washington Monsoons and Islamabad Blues

By Judith Ravin & Muhammad Hassan Miraj

A narrative weave of testimonial non-fiction by Judith Ravin and Muhammad Hassan Miraj, Beyond Our Degrees of Separation evokes points of intersection between the United States and Pakistan. Hailing from oxymoronic bureaucracies, the co-authors transcend their respective realms of diplomacy and the military to reaffirm commonalities beyond differences. The alternating narratives trace their real-life discovery of equivalent experiences within dissimilar worlds. From an off-hand discussion during a one-off encounter, they embark on a project to prove that words and culture have the power to transform. Themes include displacement, social justice, cross-border issues, terrorism, loss, and interfaith harmony. Beyond Our Degrees of Separation delights in the documentation of that journey, along with all journeys, and demonstrates how travel and fate obey their own logic, ever-populating with wonderment the imagination of the “geographically disturbed” – those who live in perpetual wanderlust.

#2 From Chicago to Vietnam: A Memoir of War

From Chicago to VietnamBy Michael Duffy

Both gritty and intimate, From Chicago to Vietnam tells the powerful story of the ensuing epic battle, the Tet Offensive, from the perspective of one brave American soldier, Michael Duffy, whose life, like so many others, would forever be changed.

Duffy’s war experience begins when he exits a C-130 cargo plane onto the Tan Son Nhut tarmac—a chaotic scene of blasts, explosions, and small arms fire. Sprinting to a waiting helicopter, he is lifted up and over the city, where he gets a bird’s-eye view of Saigon under attack. The helicopter lands on a road outside Bien Hoa Base Camp, and Duffy crawls in under enemy fire, tumbling into a fox-hole under cover of two GIs. Later, he meets up with his younger brother, Danny Duffy, in an ammunition convoy driving up Highway 1 to the village of Xuan Loc.

After his brutal one-year tour in Vietnam, Duffy returns to Chicago, where he enjoys a Christmas dinner with his family before enrolling as a freshman at Colorado College. Like many vets, his return from the war would be met with curiosity, indifference, and, at times, scorn. This harrowing memoir was thirty years in the making.

Inkwater Classics

Inkwater Classics Collection

Inkwater Press® proudly announces the newest release of their Inkwater Classics collection: Peter Pan. Each volume of a beloved classic is beautifully designed to be a delight for the eyes as well as the imagination. Sumptuous details such as designs meant to be viewed on the outer edges of the pages, a velvety feel to the covers, and faux leather-looking spines will make you proud to have each and every one of these books in your collection.

Peter Pan

J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan first captured audiences on the stage in 1904. Barrie then rewrote the play into a children’s novel titled Peter and Wendy in 1911. This is that story, beautifully redesigned to once again bring the magical land of Neverland to life and to tell of the bold adventures of the boy Peter.

Wendy Darling loves her life in the nursery with her brothers, Michael and John, and their nurse, a Newfoundland dog named Nana. And then there is Peter. Every child knows Peter. Of course they do. He lives with the fairies, pirates, and Indians on his island of Neverland, where no one ever grows up.

One night he comes to the Darlings’ nursery with the irresistible offer to take Wendy, Michael, and John away with him. To get to Neverland, Peter will teach them to fly. What adventure-loving child could resist?

The Hound of the Baskervilles

Written in 1901—after an eight years hiatus from the Holmes stories—Sir Arthur Conan Doyle worked with Bertram Fletcher Robinson, journalist from the Daily Express, on this installment of the Holmes canon.

Sherlock Holmes’ greatest adventure awaits him and Dr. Watson in Dartmoor. The devil‘s own hound is said to lurk in the deep shadows of the moor, and its target is the owners of Baskerville Hall.

The curse over Baskerville Hall has claimed the life of the most recent owner, and now the new master has been threatened. It is up to Holmes and Watson to untangle the clues that all point to a supernatural origin. Could the hound really be the vengeful spirit of doom set upon the house of Baskerville, or is it the plotting of a most devious mind bent on leaving a trail of blood and bodies?

Fun fact#1: As a part of a 1902 promotional campaign for American booksellers, Doyle’s original manuscript of the book was broken up into individual leaves. Out of an estimated 185–190 leaves, only 36 are known to still exist. Click here to see page 2 which contains a variation on Holmes’ most famous quote: “Interesting, though elementary.”

Fun fact#2 : The primary text font used for this book is called Baskerville.

Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen’s classic novel of romance and wit, was originally published in 1813. It has since become one of her most beloved works.

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife,” and the Miss Bennets are poised to make their matches. Indomitable Elizabeth Bennet is determined to marry for love, but can she find someone who will make her happy, someone to equal her in spirit and wit? From laughable Mr. Collins to genial Mr. Wickham, Elizabeth faces the challenges of Regency-era romance with fortitude. But none are so vexing to her as those brought by the condescending and resolute, and wealthy, Mr. Darcy.

The obstacles of pride and prejudice threaten the happy endings of all involved. But hearts sometimes soften and opinions can change. The Bennet sisters might still attain their hopes and desires. And Elizabeth may yet find a man who can win her hand and, more importantly, her heart.

#2 Shadow of Death

By Jean Sorrell

1940 Louisiana. The body of Sister Mary Gretchen is discovered hanging from the balcony in a deserted mansion next to the leper colony on the banks of the Mississippi River.

In New Orleans, her sister, Catherine Lyle, doesn’t want to retrieve the nun’s body. It’s not because she doesn’t love her older sister, but because she’s afraid to go outside her house. For almost twenty years Catherine has lived with a terrible secret, carried deep inside her subconscious, suppressed behind the safety of her portraits and her restoration of damaged works of art. But while the journey terrifies her, Catherine knows she has no other choice but to go.

As Catherine tries to put her fears aside, she finds compelling reasons to reject her sister’s death was suicide. From the hemp noose around her sister’s neck to the brutal murder of a leper patient, strange, unrelated clues are compiled: clues of Nazi infiltration of the colony and death threats to others. As Catherine gets closer to discovering the murderer, she finds herself marked for death. In the midst of the lush, exotic setting of a lonely leper colony on the banks of the Mississippi River, readers will find themselves transported to a time and a place that is no more.

#3 You’ll Do Anything for Her: A New Relationship Perspective

By Dr. Maureen E. Hosier & Berta Hosier Conger

Dearest,
What I want most is to feel cared about and loved by you.
I’ve tried everything, but it’s not working.
What more can I do?
I love you so much, but I don’t feel like there are two of us in our relationship.

When you fell for her, were you so crazy in love and happy to be with her that you did whatever she wanted, so she’s happy with you?

Do you feel your relationship isn’t working for you, but it sure seems to be working great for her?

Are you exhausted from trying so hard to please her?

Do you sometimes think that there is something wrong with you?

Would you like someone to tell you why you’re so unhappy and why your relationship isn’t working?

Would you like to learn something new about yourself and learn what you have to do to get what you want in your relationship?

#3 Lean for the Nonprofit: What You Don’t Know Can Cost You

By S. Paddy O’Brien

Lean is not an acronym. It’s the name for a method used to streamline.

Nonprofit organizations have unique challenges. We all know the first one: the reliance on donations and outside funding. This funding can fluctuate depending on the mood of the economy. In the recession of 2008, funds shrunk, some dried up, and many nonprofit organizations were forced to cut mission-critical programs. It still happens today. Lean provides an alternative.

The second challenge is hardly recognized: although staff and volunteers are valued for their passion, there is a long-held belief that this is sufficient to run an organization. But not in today’s climate. Passion is great, but complemented with “management acumen”…that’s even greater. Management acumen isn’t just for managers…it’s for everyone. It really means ‘know-how’…know-how about solving a problem, know-how about seeing the big picture, know-how about what tool to use. Lean builds management acumen by using improvement teams made up of ordinary workers who know the problems first-hand, and now they have a forum and know-how to solve them.
