Expect A Miracle : One couple's compelling story of faith and hope

Book Description Expect A Miracle reveals the frailties and strengths buffeted by disappointment after disappointment during one couple's lengthy and formidable efforts to become parents. As the author and her husband began their journey into the world of infertility they had no idea as to what degree their love for each other would be tested. It portrays the most emotional, stressful and out of control time in their lives. The author expresses her most intimate and deepest thoughts as she and her husband struggle to survive their greatest tragedy. It uncovers the differences between individuals as each attempt to understand why bad things happen to good people. It provides comfort and support to those inflicted by the death of a child. Eventually it details the author's experience with the adoption process and finally at long last reveals the rainbow breaking through the clouds when they brought home from another continent and into their lives a bright eyed...

Martha Tod Dudman

Expecting to Fly : A Sixties Reckoning

Amazon.comThe tumult of the '60s provides a dramatic backdrop for Martha Tod Dudman's candid memoir of her misspent youth. For Dudman, the gathering of her experiences as a rebellious, insolent, and aimless teen and young woman must have been a particularly wrenching process--her earlier memoir, Augusta, Gone , chronicled the trials she faced dealing with her daughter's troubled adolescence. In Expecting to Fly , Dudman switches roles and turns back the clock to a time when she experimented with drugs, casual (albeit emotionally taxing) sex, and counterculture lifestyles (she finds herself grimly clearing land and planting onions at a communal farm in West Virginia). Shifting from past to present tense, judiciously inserting brief steam-of-consciousness flashbacks, and sticking to clipped, unfussy prose, Dudman creates a terse but vivid portrait of a confused girl who's world is a swirl of idealism and apathy, independence and neediness, fearlessness and fear. --Steven...

Eye of the Tiger: Memoir of a United States Marine, Third Force Recon Company, Vietnam

Book Description"We live together under the thick canopy, each searching for the other; the same leeches and mosquitoes that feed on our blood feed on his blood." John Edmund Delezen felt a kinship with the people he was instructed to kill in Vietnam; they were all at the mercy of the land. His memoir begins when he enlisted in the Marine Corps and was sent to Vietnam in March of 1967. He volunteered for the Third Force Recon Company, whose job it was to locate and infiltrate enemy lines undetected and map their locations and learn details of their status. The duty was often painful both physically and mentally. He was stricken with malaria in November of 1967, wounded by a grenade in February of 1968 and hit by a bullet later that summer. He remained inVietnam until December, 1968. Delezen writes of Vietnam as a man humbled by a mysterious country and horrified by acts of brutality. The land was his enemy as much as the Vietnamese soldiers. He vividly describes the three-canopy...

Facing Athens : Encounters with the Modern City

Book Description A legendary city seen afresh from an expatriate's point of view In this original and radiant book, George Sarrinikolaou, a native Athenian expatriated to America, strips Athens of its cliches to reveal a city straining under the passions and burdens of early-twenty-first-century life. Modern Athens exists in the shadow of its ancient past: cradle of civilization, birthplace of democracy, inspiration for the Olympic Games. But as the city prepares to host the 2004 Summer Olympics, it faces challenges quite unlike those depicted in mythology and epic poetry. As Sarrinikolaou walks through the city, striving to face the Athens of his childhood head-on, he encounters people who reveal the demythologized city: newly wealthy Greeks at a Las Vegas-style nightclub; Gypsies building a middle-class house amid their squalid encampment; Kurdish and Eastern European immigrants seeking day labor in Omonia Square; aged Athenians wistfully recalling the...

Frank Schaeffer

Faith of Our Sons: A Father's Wartime Diary

Book DescriptionIn 1998, novelist Frank Schaeffer?s eighteen-year-old son John joined the Marines straight out of prep school. Their ensuing journey, recounted in the bestselling Keeping Faith: A Father-Son Story About Love and the United States Marine Corps, struck a fervent chord amongst the many Americans with a family member in the military. In Faith of Our Sons, Frank Schaeffer picks up his family?s ongoing story as Corporal John Schaeffer is deployed to the Middle East on the day Gulf War II begins. Schaeffer?s moving and timely account of the universal experience of losing a child? either temporarily or permanently?to war and his attendant emotions (from pride to panic to rage and back again) is punctuated throughout by the voices of the many others in Frank?s situation, thousands of parents and children, who continue to pour their hearts out to the Schaeffers in countless letters since the publication of Keeping Faith?from those waiting...

Francis P. Duffy

Father Duffy's Story: A Tale of Humor And Heroism, of Life And Death With the Fighting Sixty-ninth

Book Description1919. With an historical appendix by Joyce Kilmer. From the Preface: Battles are not fought by commanding officers alone, not even by chaplains unaided; and the men who do the fighting usually get little personal credit for their valor. My chronicle claims no merit save that of being true. The only critics I had in mind while writing it were those who fought in France. If they say that the pictures are true, I am content. The diary style has been deliberately chosen because it permits theintroduction of incidents, and also lends itself to the telling a plain unvarnished tale. Contents: Preparations at Home; In Training Abroad; The Luneville Sector; The Baccarat Sector; The Champagne Defensive; The Battle of the Ourcq; After the Battle; The St. Mihiel Offensive; The Argonne Offensive; and With the Army of Occupation.

Fear & Reality! : A Vietnam War Diary

Book Description FEAR & REALITY. . . A Vietnam War Diary The first person account of a U.S. Army Combat Military Policeman's experiences in the Central Highlands of South Vietnam from 1966 until 1967. The account of a struggle to implement the combined U. S. Military/ South Vietnamese Pacification Program while enforcing the Military Code of Conduct. Serving with units of the 101st Airborne and the 1st Cavalry Division of the US Army, the author found himself, at times, deep in the enemy territory. It is a story about the daily exertion required to survive the hostile jungle environment, punctuated by short bursts of intense fear, exhilaration, and death. The author experiences first hand the up-close and personal combat of guerrilla war. It is also a story of a real test of faith and the search for understanding. The author displays vivid raw emotions as they occurred and which will never be forgotten. A walk in reality to be enjoyed by everyone who...

Fierce Attachments : A Memoir

Amazon.comRarely is the barbed edge of mother love described with such scorching wit and raw emotion as it is in Vivian Gornick's reissued memoir. Fierce Attachments zigzags between a Bronx tenement teeming with immigrants in the 1940s and New York in the 1980s. It chronicles an almighty struggle between the author and her mother, a stubborn rabble-rouser bursting with tart, angry pronouncements, moxie, and an undeniable measure of charm. Waving away an "Eastern religionist" trying to sell her on his god, she raps out: "Young man, I am a Jew and a socialist. I think that's more than enough for one lifetime, don't you?" Her husband's untimely death is the occasion for such wild histrionics--screaming, refusing to walk, flinging herself into the grave--that when Gornick works the Middle East years later as a journalist, the ululating cries and fainting mourners at funerals seem comfortably familiar. The rapid-fire flow of confidences and furious arguments between the duo mellow...
