Book Review & Summary:

A New York Times Book Review Summer Reading Selection For fans of Paula McLain’s The Paris Wife and Amor Towles’s Rules of Civility, Alice Miller's sweeping debut novel charts the love story of two of literature’s most fascinating characters: Georgie Hyde-Lees and her husband, W. B. Yeats. On the eve of World War I, twenty-one-year-old Georgie Hyde-Lees—on her own for the first time—is introduced to the acclaimed poet W. B. Yeats at a soirée in London. Although Yeats is famously eccentric and many years her senior, Georgie is drawn to him, and when he extends a cryptic invitation to a secret society, her life is forever changed. A shadow falls over London as zeppelins stalk overhead and bombs bloom against the skyline. Amidst the chaos, Georgie finds purpose tending to injured soldiers in a makeshift hospital, befriending the wounded and heartbroken Lieutenant Pike, who might need more from her than she is able to give. At night, she escapes with Yeats into a darker world, becoming immersed in the Order, a clandestine society where ritual, magic, and the conjuring of spirits is practiced and pursued. As forces—both of this world and the next—pull Yeats and Georgie closer together and then apart, Georgie uncovers a secret that threatens to undo it all. In bright, commanding prose, debut author Alice Miller illuminates the fascinating and unforgettable courtship of Georgie Hyde-Lees and W. B. Yeats. A sweeping tale of faith and love, lost and found and fought for, More Miracle than Bird ingeniously captures the moments—both large and small—on which the fates of whole lives and countries hinge.

Book Summary:

Feathers are an evolutionary marvel: aerodynamic, insulating, beguiling. They date back more than 100 million years. Yet their story has never been fully told. In Feathers, biologist Thor Hanson details a sweeping natural history, as feathers have been used to fly, protect, attract, and adorn through time and place. Applying the research of paleontologists, ornithologists, biologists, engineers, and even art historians, Hanson asks: What are feathers? How did they evolve? What do they mean to us? Engineers call feathers the most efficient insulating material ever discovered, and they are at the root of biology's most enduring debate. They silence the flight of owls and keep penguins dry below the ice. They have decorated queens, jesters, and priests. And they have inked documents from the Constitution to the novels of Jane Austen. Feathers is a captivating and beautiful exploration of this most enchanting object.

Book Summary:

An essential volume for generations of writers young and old, Bird by Bird is a modern classic. This twenty-fifth anniversary edition will continue to spark creative minds for years to come. For a quarter century, more than a million readers—scribes and scribblers of all ages and abilities—have been inspired by Anne Lamott’s hilarious, big-hearted, homespun advice. Advice that begins with the simple words of wisdom passed down from Anne’s father—also a writer—in the iconic passage that gives the book its title: “Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report on birds written that he’d had three months to write. It was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books on birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him, put his arm around my brother’s shoulder, and said, ‘Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.’”

Book Summary:

Gillam Hale was born to free parents, and his life was untouched by slavery until his preacher father took him on a trip to minister to the Virginia slaves. Gillam wants beautiful Queen Esther from the moment he sees her, but the only way to purchase her is by distilling illicit whiskey—against his family's advice. Though Gillam achieves his aim, his talent for making fine whiskey earns the wrath of jealous white neighbors, who kidnap Gillam's family and scatter them to plantations throughout the South. Gillam escapes from his new owners, yet he can never be truly free until he finds his lost loved ones, and faces the legacy of his own rash decisions. The Knees of Gullah Island follows Gillam, Queen Esther and their son, Joseph, in the years surrounding the Civil War and Reconstruction, when the destiny of a nation hung in the balance. Filled with richly drawn characters and details that bring the past to vibrant life, this is a timeless story of love, loss, hope and rebirth.

Book Summary:

Have you ever given consideration to what it would be like to be deaf? Not hearing a single sound. Sure, it's quiet in your house, but you still hear sounds. I would like to think the sensation would be equitable to being underwater, but that would not be a true statement. You can still hear things while being underwater: Waves swishing and people talking above the water - yelling or laughing. Deafness is pure silence. When something big drops to the floor, I "feel" the thump it made. When my dogs bark, I can't hear them, but if they jump on my bed while I'm sleeping, I can feel they are present to wake me for a incoming visitor, burglar, tornado or other natural disaster. This book is a candid, and comical view about hearing loss, Meniere's Disease, vertigo, and the process of undergoing cochlear implant surgery. It also goes into depression and coping mechanisms for all of the above. It is a MUST read for someone or anyone you know (possibly yourself, but you won't admit it), who may be suffering from hearing loss. Progressive hearing loss is subtle. The sounds we often take for granted you no longer hear. Pay attention to your surroundings next time you are outside. Can you still hear the birds?

Book Summary:

In a small wooded lot a busy woman stumbles upon a strange doll the neighbors possibly left. She attempts to reveal who brought the toy to her home, but she uncovers no real leads. Then when a letter turns up asking her to give the doll away as soon as possible, she ends up on the edge of reason as the doll is in the midst of being reclaimed by someone. The doll although small and cuddly resembles a somewhat black entity similar to a doll she keeps in her home, but when a nearby psychic and fortune teller comes to her home asking her to give up the doll to keep her sanity, but she refuses. The stuffed animal then turns out to be more then she bargained for when the bear starts to grow a tail and red eyes. When she discovers those details, she desperately tries to send it away to a pawn shop owner, but the next day he ends up dead, and a new feeling that the stuffed bear may not be what she considered a stuffed cuddly toy anymore. The story focuses on the character of Mary, and the stuffed bear that she suddenly inherits when the doll is left on her doorstep. She finds that although the stuffed bear did have an owner, he ended up in a mental institution, and the bear was simply left behind, either by someone else or the bear itself. She doesn't want to come to the terms that it could have ended up on her doorstep, by itself, but when the tale that the previous owner claimed is finally revealed, she desperately searches for an answer to the horror of Truggle.

Jess has been in love with her best friend, Kate, for seven years, but her feelings have never been returned. One night they sleep together, and Jess finds out how much it is possible to be hurt by someone close. Jess and Kate struggle to redefine their friendship. They spend a week at Jess's family holiday house in a small seaside town, Awatangi, intending to make the time to talk things through, but the conversations never happen. Kate makes vague promises, but begins to have second thoughts. Jess wants Kate, and nothing else, and is heartbroken that isn't enough.Jess decides – while everything is changing in her life – that she doesn't want to go on living in the city, that she wants to return to Awatangi. Part of her hopes some physical distance between them may help things with Kate, and part of her – frustrated and upset – simply wants to leave Kate behind. In Awatangi, Jess meets Keri, a local lawyer who has also recently returned home. Like Jess, Keri surfs, and like Jess, she seems to feel some attachment to her family roots in Awatangi. Jess is drawn to Keri, but forces herself not to let anything happen. Despite everything, Kate is still Jess's closest friend, and she has loved Kate all her life. She feels she has to give the situation with Kate as long as she can to work itself out. Awatangi is about coping with feelings for a close friend that are not returned, set in a small holiday township on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. It is an exploration of getting what you've always wanted and it not being enough, of being in love with one person and wanting another, and of finding out that life doesn't always turn out as expected.

Book Summary:

Cape Cod is magical at any time of year. However, many permanent residents, including sisters Rachel and Beth Brewster, find it hard to make ends meet during the cold, lonely winter months, which is why they must work extra-long hours at multiple jobs all through the short summer season to save enough for the rest of the year. To complicate matters, Beth is only fifteen and is restricted as to how many hours she can work during the school year. It wouldn't be so bad if their mother weren't an alcoholic who absolutely refuses to help with the bills. Then the dead bodies begin cropping up in the neighborhoods and marshes surrounding scenic Lewis Bay. The Yarmouth and Barnstable Police begin to see a pattern linking both Rachel and Beth to the murders, but they can't seem to assemble enough proof to make an arrest. Meanwhile, a regular patron of a bar where Rachel frequently works in the evening provides some help in the young woman's search for a better-paying job, and life becomes hell for Beth as she is stalked by several teenage boys who have their own ideas about what constitutes a loving relationship.

Book Summary:

"The whole world operates on coal, boys. Men will kill for it. That makes a miner pretty damn powerful." Powerful, yes. But in the viperous worlds of mining, union organizing and warfare, digging coal can make a miner a sitting duck, too. Alan Tanner reckons he's just another coalass trying to make a living, care for his family and have a little fun. Trouble is, death stalks him. His mine explodes and the stench of bloody carcasses lingers. The UMW secretly organizes and risks a strike. Brutal guards and soldiers threaten. Gunrunning flourishes. Hostilities rupture into battle. After fending off machine gun and rifle fire all day, the young miner watches helplessly as the tent homes of a thousand strikers erupt in flame. The "New York Times" calls it "the Ludlow Massacre." Screams of widows and orphans haunt him. It's time for vengeance. The subsequent war that consumes Tanner becomes the bloodiest, costliest labor dispute in American history. With "The Red-Winged Blackbird," the long-overlooked Colorado coal strike of 1913-14 springs to life with an urgency that can only come from one who lived it. By turns humorous and heart-rending, Tanner's story chronicles the depths men will plummet for hunks of coal and the right to dig them.
