All the Way Home - David Giffels Summary

With the lyrics of a Replacements song running through his head ("Look me in the eye, then tell me that I'm satisfied"), David Giffels—with his wife and infant son in tow—combs the environs of Akron, Ohio, in search of the perfect house for his burgeoning family. The quest ends at the front door of a beautiful but decaying Gilded Age mansion, the once-grand former residence of a rubber-industry executive. It lacks functional plumbing and electricity, leaks rain like a cartoon shack, and is infested with all manner of wildlife. But for a young father at a coming-of-age crossroads, the challenge is precisely the allure. All the Way Home is Giffels's funny, poignant, and confounding journey through the great adventure of restoring a crumbling house on the way to discovering what the words "grown up" and "home" really mean.

In this coming of age tale, two boys navigate their growing awareness of the Civil Rights Movement, of racial inequality, and the meaning of love and family.

All the Way Home - Patricia Reilly Giff Summary

It’s August 1941, and Brick and Mariel both love the Brooklyn Dodgers. Brick listens to their games on the radio in Windy Hill, in upstate New York, where his family has an apple orchard; Mariel, once a polio patient in the hospital in Windy Hill, lives in Brooklyn near the Dodgers’ home, Ebbets Field. She was adopted by Loretta, a nurse at the hospital, and has never known what happened to her own mother. Someday, somehow, she plans to return to Windy Hill and find out. When a fire destroys their orchard, Brick’s parents must leave the farm to find work. They send him to live in Brooklyn with their friend Loretta, even though Brick knows that their elderly neighbors need his help to pick what’s left of the apples. The only good thing about Brooklyn is seeing the Dodgers play–that, and his friendship with Mariel. Maybe, together, they’ll find a way to return to Windy Hill, save the harvest, and learn the truth about Mariel’s past. From the Hardcover edition.

Jingle, All the Way Home - Anne Tenaglia Summary

One day in October, twelve fighting dogs were rescued from a dogfighting ring and brought to the shelter. They got new Christmas names because they were supposed to be available for adoption at Christmas time. This is the story of Jingle, who joined our family as a medical foster dog. He went through six weeks of vet treatments, destroyed all the different cone collars we tried, ate the door jamb and a pillow, got out of his locked crate, shredded a $5 bill, but amazingly never barked, growled, or threatened anyone. Two months of fostering turned into eleven months when the court case dragged on into the following year. During that time, Jingle learned commands such as SIT, PAW, DOWN, and most importantly, LEAVE IT and DROP IT. Somewhere along the way, he learned to love and trust, chose us for his family, and wormed his way into our hearts. He has changed from an anxious, cowering dog into a fun-loving, confident one. We've learned a lot from Jingle, too. He taught us some valuable lessons about the true nature of pit bulls and how fighting dogs can be rehabbed with patience and love. This is the story of how that happened, how Jingle went from fighter to lover, Rescued by Love.

All the Way Home - Bookey Peek Summary

You're crazy ... She'll take over and shove us out. I can just see this place in winter: no carpets, acres of wet newspaper underfoot, family huddled under blankets while the pig hogs the fire.' Richard and Bookey Peek hadn't planned on a warthog, any more than one would plan a tidal wave, a tornado or triplets, but on Stone Hills game sanctuary, natural disasters have a way of happening when you least expect them. Through Zimbabwe's darkest hours, Stone Hills has become a world in itself, a place where you might share your shower with an owl or your bed with a baby squirrel. Take a fresh look at the hospitality game with a couple whose crocodiles are named after unpopular guests. And follow the barefoot young David and his playmate, the warthog Poombi, as she relinquishes her place on the sofa to return to the wild - much to her indignation. Engaging and delightfully readable, this is a testament to one family's passion for Africa's wildlife and their conviction that nothing can change the essential nature of the land and its people. All the Way Home is the exhilarating and intensely moving story of a fiercely protected piece of Africa in the heart of the majestic Matobo Hills.

The Way Home - Mark Boyle Summary

It was 11pm when I checked my email for the last time and turned off my phone for what I hoped would be forever. No running water, no car, no electricity or any of the things it powers: the internet, phone, washing machine, radio or light bulb. Just a wooden cabin, on a smallholding, by the edge of a stand of spruce. In this honest and lyrical account of a remarkable life without modern technology, Mark Boyle explores the hard won joys of building a home with his bare hands, learning to make fire, collecting water from the spring, foraging and fishing. What he finds is an elemental life, one governed by the rhythms of the sun and seasons, where life and death dance in a primal landscape of blood, wood, muck, water, and fire – much the same life we have lived for most of our time on earth. Revisiting it brings a deep insight into what it means to be human at a time when the boundaries between man and machine are blurring.

The Way Home - Mary Pride Summary

--Are stay-at-home wives old-fashioned and outmoded (at best) or parasites (at worst)?--Is daycare the natural habitat for babies and toddlers?--Is family planning the only responsible choice for married Christian couples?--Are Christian children doomed to rebel against their parents, and ultimately abandon church?--Does the Bible include examples of "working wives"?--Can a lovely Christian home actually affect the culture and the economy -- just by being there?25 years ago, The Way Home was the first book to ask all these questions -- and answer them. A bestseller when it first came out, for decades The Way Home has been a source of inspiration and encouragement for married Christian women. It shows how the life plan set out in Titus 2:3-5 brings love and creativity to home, church, and society, and the deadly consequences to all three when women reject it. We have a special mission, and this book explains it step by step.This 25th Anniversary Edition preserves the original book's text, so you can see for yourself how accurate its social predictions were. You will also find a new Preface and Afterthoughts dealing with such topics as Home Business (what kind NOT to start), TV and the Internet (the latest research and some suggestions), Fruitfulness (why "trusting God for your family size" is not a "baby derby"), Modesty (it's important, but it's not about skirt lengths), and where the Patriarchy movement has veered off-course (starting with its name!).Just as thought-provoking as the original edition, the 25th Anniversary Edition of The Way Home brings the Bible's message on family and social roles to an entire new generation of Christian women.
