The Girl at the Halfway House: A Story of the Plains - Emerson Hough Summary

The band major was a poet. His name is lost to history, but it deserves a place among the titles of the great. Only in the soul of a poet, a great man, could there have been conceived that thought by which the music of triumph should pass the little pinnacle of human exultation, and reach the higher plane of human sympathy. Forty black horses, keeping step; forty trumpeters, keeping unison; this procession, headed by a mere musician, who none the less was a poet, a great man, crossed the field of Louisburg as it lay dotted with the heaps of slain, and dotted also with the groups of those who sought their slain; crossed that field of woe, meeting only hatred and despair, yet leaving behind only tears and grief. Tears and grief, it is true, yet grief that knew of sympathy, and tears that recked of other tears. For a long time the lines of invasion had tightened about the old city of Louisburg, and Louisburg grew weaker in the coil. When the clank of the Southern cavalry advancing to the front rang in the streets, many were the men swept away with the troops asked to go forward to silence the eternally throbbing guns. Only the very old and the very young were left to care for the homes of Louisburg, and the number of these grew steadily less as the need increased for more material at the front. Then came the Southern infantry, lean, soft-stepping men from Georgia and the Carolinas, their long black hair low on their necks, their shoes but tattered bits of leather bound upon their feet, their blankets made of cotton, but their rifles shining and their drill perfection. The wheat lay green upon the fields and the odours of the blossoms of the peach trees hung heavy on the air; but there was none who thought of fruitage or of harvest. Out there in front, where the guns were pulsing, there went on that grimmer harvest with which the souls of all were intimately concerned. The boys who threw up their hats to greet the infantry were fewer than they had been before the blossoming of the peach. The war had grown less particular of its food. A boy could speed a bullet, or could stop one. There were yet the boys. Of all the old-time families of this ancient little city none held position more secure or more willingly accorded than the Fairfaxes and the Beauchamps. There had always been a Colonel Fairfax, the leader at the local bar, perhaps the representative in the Legislature, or in some position of yet higher trust. The Beauchamps had always had men in the ranks of the professions or in stations of responsibility. They held large lands, and in the almost feudal creed of the times they gave large services in return. The curse of politics had not yet reached this land of born politicians. Quietly, smoothly, yet withal keyed to a high standard of living, the ways of this old community, as of these two representative families, went on with little change from generation to generation..

Three Kingdoms - Guanzhong Luo Summary

Updated with a new foreword by Moss Roberts for this fifteenth anniversary edition, Three Kingdoms tells the story of the fateful last reign of the Han dynasty (206 B.C.–A.D. 220), when the Chinese empire was divided into three warring kingdoms. Writing some twelve hundred years later, the Ming author Luo Guanzhong drew on histories, dramas, and poems portraying the crisis to fashion a sophisticated, compelling narrative that has become the Chinese national epic. This abridged edition captures the novel's intimate and unsparing view of how power is wielded, how diplomacy is conducted, and how wars are planned and fought. As important for Chinese culture as the Homeric epics have been for the West, this Ming dynasty masterpiece continues to be widely influential in China, Korea, Japan, and Vietnam and remains a great work of world literature..

This is the seventh book in the series of novels which comprise the saga which is Ordinary People, a tale of the lives and loves of the people who live in and around a village Green in the small, fictional English village of Middlewapping, somewhere in the south of England.

You Think You Know Me - Clare Chase Summary

It’s “tense romantic suspense” as a female journalist confronts deadly secrets, and a deceptive man, amid the London art world (Rhoda Baxter, author of Truly, Madly, Deeply). Freelance writer Anna Morris is struggling to make a name for herself, so she’s delighted to attend a launch for a hip new artist at her friend Seb’s gallery. But the event takes an unexpected turn when she meets Max Conran. The brother of a celebrated art dealer, he’s handsome, charming, and effortlessly sexy. What’s not to like? For starters, he’s a liar. He has more than one identity. And his meeting Anna was not by chance—but by design. Despite Seb’s warnings, Anna is intrigued. Maybe it’s her natural curiosity, or just Max’s piercing blue eyes. Either way, she’s about to make the biggest mistake of her life. Seduced into an underworld of forgery, missing paintings, and murder, Anna realizes that nothing is as it seems, including the men in her life—either her longtime friend, or the deceptive stranger who has her in his thrall. “Keeps you guessing right to the end.” —Rhoda Baxter, author of Truly, Madly, Deeply.

While visiting the Tate Britain museum, Cori Keeling can’t take her eyes off her favorite Pre-Raphaelite painting: John Everett Millais’s Ophelia.

Within its pages, a woman named Daisy hid a shocking secret. The further Cori reads, the clearer it becomes that Daisy will stop at nothing to be heard—and she’s crying out for Daisy to help her. As the ghosts of the past envelop Cori and Simon, they’ll discover the truth about the girl in the painting, the woman in the diary—and Cori’s own chilling connection to both of them..

Ragtime for the Rockies - Karl A. Lamb Summary

This tragic love story unfolds in and around the town of Platteville, Colorado in 1925 and 1926. In the Roaring Twenties, young women challenge their elders by dancing to jazz music, wearing abbreviated clothing, and drinking prohibited alcohol. Some men express their opposition in church. Otbers join the Klux Klan,which expands into the Northern States, promising violent resistance to social change. OWEN MATTISON comes to Platteville High School as athletics coach and science teacher, including Vocational Agriculture. Owen's bride, RUBY, a Home Economics graduate, is an accomplished pianist and jazz fan whose clothes and bobbed hair show the triumph of flapper fashion. We meet Owen and Ruby, married for six weeks, sharing a picnic on the LYDELL farm overlooking the river. Inspired by natural beauty, Owen sings a favorite hymn, and Ruby harmonizes. Returning to their tiny rented home, Owen receives a telephone call from ARTHUR STARK, a School Board member. Stark's son later says Stark dislikes the twentieth century and wants to hold it back. Stark changes a meeting date with Owen to attend a luncheon where he joins the Ku Klux Klan, with OLIVER SCOTT, the Platteville barber. Both men participate in the next Klan raid on a dancehall. Eager to teach moral values, the School Board votes to require readings of the King James Bible as part of classroom opening ceremonies. This distresses Catholic parents, whose children will be required to hear a proscribed text. FREDERlCK KOBLENZ, owner of the Platteville Mercantile store, organizes a protest student walkout. FRANCIS (FRA1\K) KOBLENZ, Frederick's son, leads the walkout from Owen's classroom. The School Board soon writes to all parents, requiring all students to remain for the Bible readings.

Abortion, Execution, and the Consequences of Taking Life - James D. Slack Summary

Author James D. Slack guides the reader through an in-depth examination of policy toward life and death in the United States. Examining human life from the perspective of Imago Dei—the idea of being made in God’s image—Slack argues that the taking of human life is the termination of the image of God. Intended to remind citizens and governments of their obligations to determine moral truth, this volume uses theocentric phenomenology to focus on the intimate consequences of abortion and capital punishment. Abortion alternatives as well as execution alternatives are explored as ways to encourage a policy that affirms life. This volume intends to reconcile the truth found in the world with the truth found in scripture. To do so, Slack studies the intimate consequences of murder, abortion, and capital punishment. Using a methodology of direct observation and qualitative open-ended conversations, Slack interviewed eighty-one people about abortion and its alternatives, the death penalty and its alternatives, and justice in society. This second edition is completely revised, placing greater emphasis on the thoughts of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and includes a new chapter..
