By D. R. Beavers
When Jessie Barnes’ parents are seriously injured in a car accident, she takes a leave of absence from her investigator job with the Chicago Police Department to help care for them in their home in Aiken, South Carolina. While in town, she’s tapped to help the shorthanded local sheriff’s department.

Just a week after her arrival in the sleepy southern town, she is called to investigate a double homicide. Tom and Carol Lowe have been shot to death in their spacious home on Mulberry Street. This isn’t a typical crime for Aiken, which generally deals with much lesser-profile problems. Working with lead investigator Bill Hankinson, Jessie must leave her tough Chicago tactics behind as she adjusts to his southern ways.

The job gets interesting when additional murders occur in nearby Burnettown. She is assisted through the investigations and her indoctrination into the southern lifestyle by William Bradford, a local entrepreneur who develops a romantic interest in her.

As Jessie and the sheriff’s department struggle to discover the truth behind these unlikely crimes, their investigation reveals shocking details that are highly unusual in these typically peaceful towns.

By Susan Farr Gabriele, PhD

After teaching more than twenty years in Los Angeles public schools, author Dr. Susan Farr Gabriele became disheartened with the state of schools. Too many influences took her away from the actual teaching of children. Gabriele turned to graduate school to seek answers to the problems in public education.

In New Hope for Schools, she shares the results of her studies and the creation of a system that works for education. Gabriele discusses her experiences as a teacher and teacher turned detective looking for answers in her teaching experience and postcareer graduate school. She then reveals a breakthrough theory to demystify the behavior of people in schools, gleaned out of Boulding’s Typology of System Complexity. As a result, she created the RoundTable, a practice designed to be an effective new tool for schools and classrooms, as well as a seed for systemic renewal. She also provides a three-pronged solution for unshackling and revitalizing schools and workplaces.

New Hope for Schools presents new theory, new practice, and a user-friendly solution for systemic school renewal. It offers compelling new insights and solutions for all school decision makers—from educators, to parents, students, educational scholars, researchers, and policy makers.

“A powerful way to learn!...the RoundTable provides a kind of learning experience that makes a real contribution to the community as a whole...”

By Mark Nickerson
In the summer of 2006, author Mark Nickerson was in his midthirties, still fresh-eyed and uncorrupted by life as a foreigner, when he and his wife, Gwen were granted an opportunity to relocate to Singapore. He felt he was accelerating his career with this move, and, in fact, he had been angling for this opportunity for a long while. It was to be a two-year assignment. They stayed for five. In Singapore Slingshot, he presents a collection of anecdotes on living as an expat in Singapore and his travels through nineteen countries over three job changes. Brutally honest in his opinions, he managed to keep a sense of humor as he often struggled and occasionally succeeded in establishing his life as an expat. Nickerson offers a glimpse not only beyond what can be taught in books about conducting business in high-growth Asian economies but also at a level much different than what is shown in the often sugarcoated and tourist-centric travel guides. Singapore Slingshot paints a vivid picture of what it’s like living and learning on the fly in one of the most dynamic and diverse regions of the world. Both humors and poignant, Nickerson’s tales of living in Asia are ultimately a reflection of a much more personal internal journey every expat eventually takes. He saw his life change in ways he couldn’t have imagined while the experience gave him a much different view of the world and his place in it.

By Dr. Gloria Griffin, Editor
The Emancipation Proclamation signaled an end to oppression for some, but not necessarily an end to depression. Many former slaves remained in the South, where they and generations to follow supplied the labor for the cotton industry. Working in the cotton fields was their vocation; it was what was expected of them by others and themselves. Even into the twentieth century, working in the cotton fields was a major means for some African Americans in the South to provide the family livelihood. But it was not an easy life. In Enduring Years, Billie G. Griffin, a migrant cotton picker, opens the files of his life. A compilation of stories about his life as a survivor during rough times, this memoir picks up where the slave narratives of Oklahoma leave off. It provides a raw and rare glimpse into the life of a sharecropper as it shares how Billie and his family endured decades of crushing poverty, discrimination, and segregation in America, the South, and Oklahoma. It tells how sharecroppers weathered the harshest conditions since the end of slavery and how they tried to carve out a sustainable life and a promise of a better future for their children. Praise for Enduring Years “Enduring Years: Migrant Cotton Picker’s Memoir offers a slice of history regarding the life and times of the migrant cotton picker. It is thought-provoking reading with a creative flair.” —Dr. Mary E. Carey, coauthor of When Words Are Not Enough: Strategies for Caregivers of Persons with Dementia

One who Forgets and

One who is Forgotten

One in eight over the age of sixty-five and one in three over the age of eighty will be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. In her memoir, author Joan Sutton narrates a moving account of her years as caregiver to her husband, noting that “Alzheimer’s is a disease of the brain that is paid for with the currency of the heart.”

A member of the board of overseers of The Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation, she stresses the need to develop more effective treatment for the eight million Americans currently diagnosed with this incurable disease, pointing out that for every patient there is a large circle of others also affected.

Sutton offers practical advice for the care of the caregiver and the patient, and shares the pain that came as she watched pieces of her husband’s self disappear. Following his death, after what Nancy Reagan described as “the long goodbye”, she writes candidly about coping with her new status as a widow and the aching loneliness of the heart that is the price paid for having known a great love.


All profits from the sale of this book will benefit The Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation/Canada.
