By Vito A. Lepore

For author Vito A. Lepore, the years between 1950 and 1959 were the most important of his life. Decisions were made that affected the coming years, and his character became defined. In Vito’s Journey II, he picks up where part one of his memoir, Vito’s Journey, leaves off but with a different focus.

The first book introduced family members and told stories of a boy’s transition from Italy to America. Vito’s Journey II begins with his first step out into an adult world and journeys through the stages that follow. Told in a series of entertaining vignettes, the stories include: his foray into baseball, the night Nunzio was kidnapped, a taste of the Italian personality, life in the military, a night in jail, and his first full-time adult job. There is also a climactic court sequence.

In Vito’s Journey II, Lepore communicates the lessons he learned throughout his life. Whether it’s boyhood or adulthood, life is a never-ending series of crossroads, some by accident and some by design. Your life can change on any given day. It then follows that there is no such thing as a last chance, and that failure is part of the learning process.

By Pamela Hendricks Frautschi

Every family has one, the person whose very existence often perplexes and challenges. In this family, Claudia serves that role. A self-proclaimed spirit on the path to enlightenment and joy, her eager dismissal of her more mundane human element has caused no small amount of tension for spectators on the sidelines.

On the surface, her journey to Nirvana should be charming, but in reality, it’s been a profoundly disruptive roadblock to family harmony and her relationship with her siblings. Frustrated by her own family’s inability to embrace her needs, Claudia lashes out again and again. Claudia considers realism an evasion and reality a lie that serves no purpose other than to disrupt the pursuits of her spiritual dreams.

This is not the easiest mind-set to grow up with, but it’s what the narrator and her family experience. The narrator’s own quest for understanding, purpose, and compassion for her inscrutable older sister inspire her own internal explorations. In sharing these tales, she finds strength and comfort, humor and empathy, and, most importantly, solutions and closure.

An emotional account of the impact a decision can have on a family, Claudia is the story of an older sister’s ironically self-centered quest for Nirvana at all costs.

By W. Jacqueline Johnson

As a healer, author W. Jacqueline Johnson knew a cancer diagnosis could be a gift in one’s life, bringing valuable life lessons and even transformation. But nothing prepared her for her own diagnosis and the debilitating effects of chemotherapy and radiation. In The Guest House, she narrates the story of her diagnosis, treatments, and the surprising aftermath.

Johnson shares how, as a healthy woman who only saw the doctor for checkups, she is thrown into the medical system’s maze, having tests she never heard of and accumulating enough insurance receipts to fill a large notebook. Her progress is as slow and unpredictable as an upstate New York spring.

In Guest House, she tells how she lost all faith in the healing process. But one day something happened as she danced beside a flowing stream, and she felt the subtle energy returning to her body. Slowly, bit by bit, the healing process worked within her in ways she never thought possible as she experienced the liberation of vulnerability and doorways opened through pain. She learned lessons during the journey that led her to believe that cancer is, indeed, magical.

By Diane E. Greentree

Losing her mother at nine, moving to Alaska at thirteen, and leaving the country at fifteen, City of Flowers narrates the early life of author Diane E. Greentree. It tells the story of a teenage girl who was spiraling downward but ultimately reignited a sense of wonder and changed the course of her life.

In this memoir, Greentree shares how she received too much attention following her mom’s death and decided to never stand out again, a goal that brought devastating consequences later on. In a new town in southeast Alaska, feeling pressured toward drinking and sex, she sought an excuse to avoid doing something she would regret. For her, it was a letter from her mother. The desire to fit in proved too strong, however, and she crossed into an unhealthy abyss. Hearing about an exchange program, she jumped at the chance for escape, and with surprising determination, competed, and was selected to go.

Thus began an adventure to the southern Philippines. Immersed in a new culture, food, ways of thinking and with no hope of fitting in, she grew to understand that she didn’t need the approval of others to be herself.

City of Flowers shares one teenager’s story of coming of age and overcoming early challenges to learn to believe in herself.

“Adventures of a Country Boy in the City”
provides an insight into the engaging life of the author, whose natural instinct is to know how to convert opportunities to bring about positive changes in his life. The author enchants the imagination of his readers to become part of his compelling story by involving the reader in every step of the adventures he encountered in the city of Lagos, and later, as a student, in the cities of Hamburg and of West Berlin.

Told in very colorful and vibrant language, the reader, the author and the story all become one and the same entity, allegorically following the path etched out in the words of the author. When, in his journeys, and one road seemed to be closed and the reader shudders at the rational of the breathtaking risk that the author has just taken, a God-sent Guiding Angel suddenly appears to take the author out of whatever adversity.

Join Komolafe in his adventures as he journeys through life from the background of a simple village life in the Yoruba Kingdom of Nigeria to the world of opportunities that awaits a man of valor who dares to demand his share of what destiny has in stock for him.

By Drew Bridges

The Brooklyn Dodgers defeated the New York Yankees in the seventh game of the 1955 World Series in the greatest baseball game ever played. The second-greatest baseball game ever played took place Saturday, June 29, 1957. No Yankees, Giants, Dodgers, Cardinals, or Red Sox were there. The game played out in author Drew Bridges’s hometown of Hildebran in western North Carolina. Two teams of boys, ten to fifteen years old, faced off on the high school baseball diamond, no uniforms and no organized league. Bridges played second base, his brother played third, and their dad coached the team.

In this memoir, Bridges tells the story of that afternoon of baseball and how it came to be through his recollections and his father’s wartime letters to his mother who was pregnant with their first child. It shares the words of an ordinary American serviceman who is dreaming about a life beyond war.

Field of Dreams meets A League of Their Own meets The Sandlot in this story of a soldier’s return home from World War II and his work with others in the community to build a youth league baseball program. The Second-Greatest Baseball Game Ever Played shares the game of baseball through the eyes of a ten-year-old and shows how this game captured the heart and soul of a community and became so vital to all.

By Elisabeth Amaral
The mid-1960s through the mid-1970s was a heady, turbulent time. There was a lot going on back then, and author Elisabeth Amaral was in the middle of it all: the fights for women’s rights, racial equality, a music revolution, be-ins, love-ins, riots in the streets, the rage against the Vietnam War, and sex, drugs, and rock and roll. It was an amazing time to be young. In Czar Nicholas, The Toad, and Duck Soup, Amaral shares her recollections of those times. She narrates a coming-of-age story about herself and her husband as they embarked on an improbable journey of self-discovery. They gave up their jobs, moved with their infant son from New York City to Boston, unexpectedly started a children’s boutique, and soon opened a popular restaurant in Harvard Square. With sincerity and humor, Czar Nicholas, The Toad, and Duck Soup offers a personal and revealing account that reaches out to those who find themselves striving to make a relationship work that, by its very nature, may be doomed. But this story is also one of friendship—and of finding the courage to move on. Praise for Czar Nicholas, The Toad, and Duck Soup “In her intimate and humorous memoir, Liz Amaral reveals the challenges of a young family establishing a home in Cambridge amid the tumult of the late 1960s. You will discover the disconcerting truth about her marriage and the painful path she takes to find herself again. A true adventure of the heart.” —Kathrin Seitz, writer, producer, and coach
