The Pleasure Was Mine

What Was Mine Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Pleasure Was Mine by Tommy Hays Book Summary:

Prate Marshbanks proposed to his future wife on a muggy July night at Pete's Drive-in back in '52. "She said yes to me between bites of a slaw burger all-the-way." A college graduate and daughter of a prominent lawyer, Irene was an unlikely match for Prate, a high school dropout. He lived his married life aware of the question on people's minds: How in the world did a tall, thin, fair-skinned beauty and one of the most respected high school English teachers in all of Greenville County, in all of South Carolina for that matter, wind up married to a short, dark, fat-faced, jug-eared house painter? That their marriage not only survived for fifty years, but flourished, is a source of constant wonder to Prate. Now he faces a new challenge with Irene. From the author of In The Family Way, a novel the Atlanta Constitution called "an instant classic" and the Charlotte Observer praised as "a lovely, moving book," comes a powerful story of hard-earned hope. The Pleasure Was Mine takes place during a critical summer in the life of Prate Marshbanks, when he retires to care for his wife, who is gradually slipping away. To complicate things, Prate's son, Newell, a recently widowed single father, asks Prate to keep nine-year-old Jackson for the summer. Though Prate is irritated by the presence of his moody grandson, during the summer Jackson helps tend his grandmother, and grandfather and grandson form a bond. As Irene's memory fades, Prate, a hardworking man who has kept to himself most of his life, has little choice but to get to know his family. With elegance and skillful economy of language, Tommy Hays renders an unforgettable character in Prate Marshbanks. The Pleasure Was Mine is at once a quietly wrenching portrayal of grief, a magical and romantic story about the power of love, and an unexpectedly moving take on the resilience of family.

The Honor Was Mine

What Was Mine Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Honor Was Mine by Elizabeth Heaney Book Summary:

A young combat veteran hides in his closet under a pile of clothes on bad nights. Another, home for five days, can't figure out how to talk to his wife. And a commander's spouse recounts the soul-draining effect of attending nearly one hundred memorial services... When therapist Elizabeth Heaney left her private practice to counsel military service members and their families, she came face-to-face with unheard-of struggles and fears. Emotions run deeply--and often silently--in the hearts of combat veterans in this eye-opening portrait of the complex, nuanced lives of service personnel, who return from battling the enemy and grapple with readjusting to civilian life. Presenting the soldiers' stories--told in their own words--as well as her own story of change, Heaney offers an intimate perspective, not of war itself but of its emotional aftermath. Some of these stories scrape the bone; others are hopeful, even comical. Every one reveals the sacrifices of those on the front lines and the courage, grace, and honor with which they serve.

The Day I Washed My Face in the Toilet

What Was Mine Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Day I Washed My Face in the Toilet by Brenda Kearns Book Summary:

"Wish you could find giggle-inducing tween books for girls?" "Tired of young teen fiction that drags you down? Then try..." The Day I Washed My Face in the Toilet A laugh-out-loud novel that's perfect for girls and young teens! All 14-year-old Monica Bloomfield wants is to spend August at a science camp far away from her idiot sister and weird little brother. Trouble is, Monica's being dragged into the wedding party of her crabby old great aunt who lives in England-and if she wants to earn that science camp, she has to keep her siblings in line for the entire trip, plus convince her crazy Grandma to move into a nursing home pronto. Monica's determined to succeed, but things start out badly-and go downhill fast. First, her hyperactive brother overdoses on caffeine right before their eight-hour flight to England. Then a botched wine-tasting party ends so badly that even a policeman is left speechless (and in need of a new uniform). Getting into science camp isn't going to be easy-especially with a rampaging bull, drunk parrot and the most gorgeous guy in the universe standing in her way. "The Day I Washed My Face In The Toilet" is a fast-paced tale about a girl trying to have a positive impact on her world and see social injustices corrected-with hilarious results, and one badly-mangled bridesmaid's dress. A Personal Note From The Author: Unfortunately, I came up with the title of this book-and a pretty big chunk of the plot-line-the day I washed my face in a toilet. In my defense, we were living in the middle of nowhere, and a brutal storm had left us with no hydro, no heat, no lights and no running water for almost a week. I was cold and grimy, and by the fifth day I snapped. I pulled the top off the toilet tank and peered in. The water had been sitting there for days, so it smelled really funky. Also, every chain and bobbly thing in there was covered with a thick layer of (and here, I'm using the scientific term) bleck. Still, I was desperate. So I used the slimy toilet tank water and had what was probably the fastest sponge bath on record. Sadly, the curry incident happened to me, too. Shortly before I boarded an eight-hour flight from England to Canada, a friend took me out for a huge curry feast. I'd never had curry, and my intestines weren't sure what to do with the stuff, so they promptly rejected it. I developed a massive case of explosive curry farts. I kept my coat zipped up for the entire flight home, hoping that would hide the smell. It didn't. Toxic gasses trickled out through the neck of the coat, assaulting me and all of the passengers who were stuck sitting around me. Ironically, the coat made the problem worse, because it made me sweat-I was leaking curry vapors out of every pore of my body. This book is a labor of love-but it's laced with some of my most cringe-worthy experiences, too! "If you're on the look-out for great books for girls or young teens-and you don't need vampires or zombies to make you happy-then this one's for you!" Want to read more?

If This World Were Mine by E. Lynn Harris Book Summary:

Four friends, all graduates of Hampton Institute, keep a collective journal they call "If This World Were Mine," and share their personal diaries each month at a gathering filled with humor, gossip, and affirmation. The four group members are as different as the seasons, yet they all share a love of one another. Yolanda, a media consultant, keeps it going on with a no-nonsense attitude and independence that are balanced by the theatrics of Riley, a former marketing executive whose marriage has reduced her to a "kept woman with kids." Computer engineer Dwight's anger at the world is offset by the compassion of Leland, a gay psychiatrist whose clients make him question why God ever invented sex. But after five years, the once-strong bonds of friendship are weakening, and the group must handle challenges of work, lost love, and a stranger in their midst. As the group members confront their true feelings toward each other, resentments and long-held secrets surface, and the stability of the group begins to disintegrate. Is their past friendship strong enough to survive the future?

The Street Was Mine

What Was Mine Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Street Was Mine by M. Abbott Book Summary:

This book considers a recurrent figure in American literature: the solitary white man moving through urban space. The descendent of Nineteenth-century frontier and western heroes, the figure re-emerges in 1930-50s America as the 'tough guy'. The Street Was Mine looks to the tough guy in the works of hardboiled novelists Raymond Chandler ( The Big Sleep ) and James M. Cain ( Double Indemnity ) and their popular film noir adaptations. Focusing on the way he negotiates racial and gender 'otherness', this study argues that the tough guy embodies the promise of an impervious white masculinity amidst the turmoil of the Depression through the beginnings of the Cold War, closing with an analysis of Chester Himes, whose Harlem crime novels ( For Love of Imabelle ) unleash a ferocious revisionary critique of the tough guy tradition.

Sanctuary

What Was Mine Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Sanctuary by Tanith Frost Book Summary:

Ancient feuds shift into uncertain alliances when murder threatens the secrecy of the supernatural world. Pushing papers at a werewolf sanctuary is the least appealing assignment Aviva could have wished for. It's the bottom rung of the career ladder for a vampire, a job that will leave her isolated from most of her kind as she watches over members of a species whose very existence threatens the secrecy of the supernatural world. Her only consolation is the promise of peace, quiet, and a chance to impress the elders over the course of an easy assignment. After all, the werewolves may be troublesome, but they've kept their own secrets for a century. But the situation at the sanctuary is not what she expected, and Aviva's hopes of easy success are quickly dashed. Age-old tensions between vampires and werewolves come to a head when a human in a nearby village is found brutally murdered and suspicion lands squarely on the sanctuary's supernatural inhabitants. When the pack leaders refuse to turn the killer in to face justice, Aviva knows her elders will do anything to keep their world safe from humans, even if it means wiping out the werewolves for good.

West Richardson Street

What Was Mine Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

West Richardson Street by Saqib Deshmukh Book Summary:

'Life is one big road with a lot of signs, signs and more signs you've got to make up your mind to face reality all the time.' Badmarsh & Shri/Tenor Saw/Bob Marley Shiraz is a newly appointed Police Community Support Officer who discovers the body of an Asian prostitute Mandy in a skip in West Richardson Street, High Wycombe. The investigations lead him to a local taxi driver Asif and a journalist Stacy who works for a local newspaper. Running alongside this is the story of Anna the daughter of a furniture worker in High Wycombe in 1913 and her adventures during these heady times in the town's history. In the background is the spectre of the Assassin whose agenda of racial terrorism drives the story to a profound climax. West Richardson Street is about the past and the present histories of High Wycombe. About lives lost over pieces of dirt and how particular roads and areas of the town resonate with dark and unspoken tales. It's about placing the arrival of Asian and African Caribbean people to Buckinghamshire in a historical context and making them part of this history rather than existing outside of it. West Richardson Street looks at the town throughout the ages but in particular before the war where the furniture industry in High Wycombe was at its height, the early eighties where there were riots and finally 2007 and the paranoid times after the 2006 terror raids. 'The lie was powerful. It had wrapped itself over the Chiltern Hills and the fabric of the County. It was embedded into the DNA of the mighty and the powerful and covered up a multitude of sins.'

The Street Was Mine

What Was Mine Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Street Was Mine by Megan E. Abbott Book Summary:

This book considers a recurrent figure in American literature: the solitary white man moving through urban space. The descendent of 19th-century frontier and western heroes, the figure reemerges in 1930s-’50s America as the “tough guy.” The Street Was Mine looks to the tough guy in the works of hardboiled novelists Raymond Chandler (The Big Sleep) and James M. Cain (Double Indemnity) and their popular film noir adaptations. Focusing on the way he negotiates racial and gender “otherness,” this study argues that the tough guy embodies the promise of an impervious white masculinity amidst the turmoil of the Depression through the beginnings of the Cold War. The book concludes with an analysis of Chester Himes, whose Harlem crime novels (For Love of Imabelle) unleash a ferocious revisionary critique of the tough guy tradition.

But Wolk gives us her own story—one full of grace and stark, brutal beauty.” —The New York Times Book Review “When reviewers draw a parallel between Mockingbird and Lauren Wolk's Wolf Hollow, they are being neither hyperbolic, nor lazy. They are merely doing justice to Wolk's beautiful story.” — NPR, Best Books of 2016 Growing up in the shadows cast by two world wars, Annabelle has lived a mostly quiet, steady life in her small Pennsylvania town. Until the day new student Betty Glengarry walks into her class.

It has the feel of an instant classic." —Linda Sue Park, Newbery Medalist and New York Times bestselling author

Red

What Was Mine Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Red by Jacqueline Noir Book Summary:

The first time those haunting gray eyes pinned her, they'd stared at her from the face of a creature that was supposed to only be a legend. A cliche. When Sadie VonRouge moves to Casterton, Oregon to live with her aunt, she expected a sleepy little town; the perfect backdrop for her to start piecing back together her life. She wants nothing more than a normal start to her freshman year of college. Normal is the last thing she's going to get. The night she was attacked, it'd been a wolf that chased her down. A wolf that tackled her to the ground. A wolf that began sniffing her. Then she'd opened her eyes, and she'd come face-to-face with him. But she was delusional. She knew this. There'd been no man. At least, that's what she tells herself over and over, even while fighting back the memory of how sinfully gorgeous the man had been, or how viciously he'd growled out that one word: Mine. Sadie doesn't know what is happening to her, or why she's beginning to exhibit odd symptoms after the attack. All she knows is that her world has been drastically changed. She has no idea how much, or how serious that man's claim was. Not until he comes back into her life, demanding the one thing that he owns above anything else. Her. Thrust into a new world, Sadie is going to be forced to deal with a reality she never expected. And a dominating, scary, dangerous male that might just not give her any choice but to accept her new life . . . and the fact that he comes along with it. "You belong to me. I own you. Forever.""
