It's late summer 1793, and the streets of Philadelphia are abuzz with mosquitoes and rumors of fever. Down near the docks, many have taken ill, and the fatalities are mounting.

New customers have overrun her family's coffee shop, located far from the mosquito-infested river, and Mattie's concerns of fever are all but overshadowed by dreams of growing her family's small business into a thriving enterprise. But when the fever begins to strike closer to home, Mattie's struggle to build a new life must give way to a new fight-the fight to stay alive.

Composed in the later half of the nineteenth-century, many of Thomson's post-Christian poems challenge the securities of Victorian religious comfort and sceptically view the human condition as devoid of connection with any providential sustenance.

Book Summary:

Hiroshima is the story of six people--a clerk, a widowed seamstress, a physician, a Methodist minister, a young surgeon, and a German Catholic priest--who lived through the greatest single manmade disaster in history. In vivid and indelible prose, Pulitzer Prize-winner John Hersey traces the stories of these half-dozen individuals from 8:15 a.m. on August 6, 1945, when Hiroshima was destroyed by the first atomic bomb ever dropped on a city, through the hours and days that followed. Almost four decades after the original publication of this celebrated book, Hersey went back to Hiroshima in search of the people whose stories he had told, and his account of what he discovered is now the eloquent and moving final chapter of Hiroshima.

Book Summary:

Kingsville is located in Essex County in southwestern Ontario, west of the Leamington, south of Lakeshore, southeast of Essex. It is primarily an agricultural community nestled along the north shore of Lake Erie. The terrain is generally flat, and consists of a mixture of various rocks, sand and clay. The town is about 570 feet above sea level. Kingsville is home to the Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary. Jack Miner was awarded The Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his achievements in conservation in the British Empire. Jack Miner is considered "the father of the conservation movement on the continent." The Town of Kingsville is rich in history and Victorian era architecture. Leamington is a located in Essex County, Ontario. It includes Point Pelee, the southernmost point of mainland Canada. Leamington became the home of the H. J. Heinz factory in 1908. The Heinz products were shipped from Leamington mostly to the United States. Ketchup and baby food were the main products. Leamington is known as the "Tomato Capital of Canada." The Heinz Company closed its plant in Leamington in 2014. Leamington was incorporated as a village in 1876. The community was named after Royal Leamington Spa in England. It was a crossroads hamlet with about 300 residents and was first known for its lumber products. There were several docks, and fish were plentiful in Lake Erie and sturgeon could be speared from the shore; fish was the cheapest food available. Leamington once had many tobacco farms but now they are gone. Blytheswood is a small community located in Essex County, in southwestern Ontario. The village is at the intersection of Highway 77 and Concession 8. Blytheswood's more recognized businesses are the Jones Popcorn family farm and Setterington's farm supply depot. Blytheswood and the surrounding area of Leamington are experiencing a boom in greenhouse development for agricultural products. King's Highway 77, commonly referred to as Highway 77, is a provincially maintained highway in the Canadian province of Ontario. One of three highways within Essex County, Highway 77 serves to interconnect Highway 3 near Leamington with Highway 401 near Tilbury. Due to the flat topography of Essex County, the land use surrounding Highway 77 is almost entirely agricultural. Soil conditions in Essex are ideal for farming. Many streams have been diverted to irrigate the farmland to either side of the highway. Highway 77 begins at the Leamington Bypass, north of the city of the same name. The western section of Highway 3 shares its eastern terminus with Highway 77; from there it travels west towards Windsor. Several greenhouses are visible near the southern end of the highway, a small percentage of the 610 hectares (1,500 acres) of land occupied by them in the Leamington area. The highway runs seven miles north through Mount Carmel and Blytheswood to the village of Staples, passes through Comber. Highway 401 provides access to Windsor and the United States to the west, and to the town of Tilbury and city of Chatham-Kent to the east. To the north, the road continues as Essex County Road 35 to Stoney Point on the shores of Lake Huron. Tilbury is located in the municipality of Chatham-Kent and is 26.5 kilometres southwest of Chatham and 57 kilometres east of Windsor on Highway 401. The nearby townships of Tilbury West in Essex County and Tilbury East in Kent County were named for the port of Tilbury in the English county of Essex. A settlement, called Henderson after the local postmaster, was established with the construction of the Canada Southern Railway in 1875. The name of the post office was changed to Tilbury Centre and later to Tilbury. Tilbury is famous for its murals which depict part of its history.

Book Summary:

Drawn from the chilling files of a prominent Forensics Expert. Women's bodies are being dumped on the outskirts of Omaha, Nebraska. Police believe they are facing a cold and calculating serial killer. Unfortunately, they have no suspects, no motive, and very little physical evidence. What's worse, they have no idea how many more bodies are out there or when the killer will strike again. Their only clue is that the victims are known street prostitutes, addicted and vulnerable. Step inside the barrier tape with the members of an elite task force and witness the inner workings of a massive serial killer investigation. They'll use advanced crime analysis tools, behavioral science, and good old gum shoe police work. Follow every step in the forensic investigation from gruesome crime scenes through autopsies and watch as the evidence begins to point to a single suspect. You will see the human side of an investigation of this magnitude as well and the toll it takes on those involved. The author is a 30 year veteran of a major police agency and has been directly involved with many such investigations over those years. Although "Carnal Prey" is a work of fiction, the events portrayed are drawn directly from those personal experiences.
