The celebrated author of The Group offers a “clever, witty, polished” portrait of the 1940s NYC literary bohemia she knew so well in this debut novel (The New York Times). Margaret Sargent is young and fearless, a deep thinker inspired by the bohemian energy that abounds in New York City in the years leading up to the Second World War. With careless abandon, she destroys her marriage and numerous love affairs as she moves through the social circles of artists and writers, playing at the fringes of political extremism. She is an enigma, often wanton and frivolous, but possessing intelligence and a razor-sharp wit, as well as a troubling core of inner darkness, self-doubt, and puzzling tendencies toward self-destruction. For Margaret, urban life in the 1930s is an ongoing adventure—ever-changing, always surprising, and deeply, profoundly unsatisfying. Mary McCarthy, author of the bestselling American classic The Group, burst boldly onto the literary scene with her provocative debut, The Company She Keeps. A brilliant, stylistically inventive novel, it offers a rich portrait of a truly fascinating protagonist in six revealing episodes. Love her, despise her, or fear for her, you will never forget Margaret Sargent. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Mary McCarthy including rare images from the author’s estate..

“An urban African-American girl and her father buy plants, potting soil, and a window box at the supermarket, ride the bus to their apartment, and put together a colorful gift for the child’s mother. Rhyming verse carries the brief story, while wonderful, warm, full-color illustrations present scenes from novel angles, and depict a loving family with a sense of intimacy, sincerity, and joy.”—School Library Journal.
Many people today are looking for opportunities to bring the spiritual into their everyday lives in non-traditional ways. Their days are so busy they can't imagine how they can fit in time to kneel or sit in prayer on a regular basis. As a result, they fly from one activity to the next at breakneck speed, always looking forward to some nonexistent time in the future when things will slow down long enough to allow them to breathe, center themselves, and pray. Everyday Divine: A Catholic Guide to Active Spirituality helps busy readers explore different ways to achieve a place of stillness and peace while remaining very much in the world. In fact, the day-to-day activities of life become the pathway to prayer-even the prayer itself. Drawing on Catholic tradition, from the Desert Fathers and Mothers to ancient monastics to modern-day saints and sages, Everyday Divine looks at how we can adapt these ancient practices for modern times, quoting holy men and women on various methods and offering practical instructions and suggestions to help people put them into practice. Readers learn how to find spiritual peace while immersed in everyday activities, such as: - Housework and chores - Workouts and exercise - Cooking, eating, and fasting - Listening to music - Traveling and making pilgrimages - Living among the noise of daily life The book also includes personal stories from the author and others, and will weave in practices from specific spiritualities-such as Franciscan, Benedictine, and Trappist-to show how these practices fit into the bigger Catholic picture..

The theology and beliefs concerning the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of our Lord Jesus, have long been a contentious issue between Catholics and Protestants. The latter often maintain that "the Catholic Mary" is a corruption of the true biblical Mary: the humble and lowly handmaiden. Catholic apologist Dave Armstrong shows how the "Catholic" and the "biblical" Mary are indeed one and the same. Tackling controversial topics such as Mary's Immaculate Conception, Assumption, and perpetual virginity, asking Mary to intercede, the Rosary, the flowery and seemingly excessive devotional language of the saints, and Mary as a distributor of God's grace and salvation (just as St. Paul and indeed all of us are intended to be), Armstrong provides biblical and rational support for all Catholic Marian beliefs and practices: making them accessible, understandable, and able to be espoused by all who accept the inspiration of the Bible..

"Children will be eager to attend this magical slumber party."—School Library Journal "Allyn’s digitally created illustrations have the warmth of acrylic paintings, and she gives her ethnically diverse young cast round faces, gleaming eyes, and fuzzy heads of hair.

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep ... as usual. What starts out as a simple nursery rhyme quickly derails into mayhem. Bo Peep can't find her sheep, but readers will, and they'll be coaching Bo from the sidelines as they watch her mischievous sheep swiping mittens from kittens, toppling Humpty Dumpty, and trampling Mary's garden. Dozens of beloved Mother Goose characters have cameos ... and all have run-ins with the sheep. Readers will giggle all the way to the end when at last they can finish the rhyme, as the sheep (sheepishly) come home, wagging their tails, of course..

This book tells the classic story of Mary, who after losing her parents comes to live with her uncle in an English great house. When she gets there, she makes two friends: Dickon, a boy who talks with nature, and Colin, a poor boy who despite being a lord lives in isolation because of an illness. This friendship will lead to the discovery of a great secret: a forbidden garden, surrounded by walls and locked with a missing key, whose mystery goes back to a hidden accident. Decided to bring this garden back to life, Mary will join forces with her friends and walk into a path known today as a beautiful metaphor for the journey of self-awareness and awakening to the world. Written in 1911 by Frances Hodgson Burnett, a great author recognized for her success and independence, this work inspired various plays and movies and remains as vivid as the life brought out of it..
