"I loved this book. It is set in first century Judea and it is about a young woman finding her voice. She longs to be a writer but the strict cultural limitations of time and place forbid it. The book follows her life as she struggles to stay true to her heart. She encounters an 18 year old Jesus and her life is changed forever. The book was well researched and like the rest of Sue Monk Kidd’s books it is a page turner. It is available here at Rosendale Library." A first-century intellectual fights the limitations imposed on women before an encounter with an 18-year-old Jesus leads to their marriage, his dangerous public ministry and her flight to safety in Alexandria. By the author of The Invention of Wings.
"Goodwin's research and excellent writing brings the four presidents to life. I liked learning new facts about them that I didn't know before."
The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of No Ordinary Time draws on five decades of scholarship to offer an illuminating exploration of the early development, growth and exercise of leadership as demonstrated by Presidents Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, FDR and Johnson
"This is the amazing account of the British Antarctic ("Terra Nova") Expedition from 1910-1913, as told by a young romantically-inclined adventurer who didn’t realize what he was getting into. No polar fleece, here. The biggest problems were with footwear and moisture retention by clothing and sleeping bags which would freeze hard when removed, in addition to man-hauling all equipment under extremely harsh conditions. Told with honesty, humor and wonderful descriptions of Antarctica this is a great escape read and the mother of all expedition tales."
"Odd Jobs" is a collection of people who hold truly peculiar positions far removed from the traditional life sentence of a 9-5 office job. Wouldn't you rather get paid to dust dinosaur bones at the Metropolitan Museum of Art or blow the bugle at the Kentucky Derby?"
Psychiatrist Daniel Z. Lieberman, MD, and Michael E. Long present a potentially life-changing proposal: Much of human life has an unconsidered component that explains an array of behaviors previously thought to be unrelated, including why winners cheat, why geniuses often suffer with mental illness, why nearly all diets fail and why the brains of liberals and conservatives really are different.
"Good Omens", the BBC TV series production that we have in our collection. The excellent cast includes Michael Sheen and David Tennant playing an over-worldly devil and an over-fussy angel who try to prevent the Apocalypse.It also features Frances McDormans as God, and the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse. It is based on the book by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, 2 of my favorite writers. It's a six part mini-series.
The end of the world is imminent, but there are a few problems--the Antichrist has been misplaced, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride motorcycles, and the representatives from heaven and hell decide that they like the human race
