Description:
Set in the late 19th century, Anita Shreve's novel begins when professor of English Nicholas Van Tassel meets and falls in love with Etna Bliss, whose prospects are dim. Nicholas offers her marriage, and, though she doesn't return his passion, she accepts. But Van Tassel is unable to accept his wife's lack of love for him, and over the years he stoops to a variety of despicable acts related not only to his doomed passion for Etna, but also to his unbridled ambition.

Word from the Publisher

INSIDE FLAP of Book:
Today's woman isn't a radical feminist, nor is she an ultraconservative. She is more often a wife and mom who is--or has bee--married. She struggles to baolance home and family, fitness and faith. Too often she bears the scars from sexual abuse, alcoholism, or drug addiction. She faces choices her mother never faced and is aware that her children face even toughter choices. But she looks at--and lives--life as an adventure....
"For far too long the Christian Woman has been misconceived as a:
dangerous, doormat, dowdy dressing, phobic, anti-everthything, closed-minded, legalistic, serious, poor, isolated woman."
If you are searching for a new identity as a woman in the nineties that includes balancing your faith, family, and fitness, then consider becoming a wild, wonderful woman for God.

Federal Deputy Sullivan Hart thinks he has broken the back of the outlaw organization LOS PISTOLEROS after he arrests its leader, J.T. Priest--the man who killed his father.
But just before his trial, Priest escapes from jail, and he's determined to rebuild his criminal empire. Hart knows that if he's ever to put his father's ghost to rest, he must stop the outlaw once and for all.
Only Quick Charlie Sims knows where Priest is planning to meet up with the rest of his gang. And Hart is none too sure he can trust the wily gambler, who has his own debt to settle with LP's leader--and his own interest in the organization....

Description:
Word from the Publisher
In this examination of teenage pregnancy in America, Kristin Luker argues persuasively that teen childbearing is not so much a cause as an indicator of poverty, with its roots in a number of behavioral and economic trends.


Word from the Publisher
Introducing readers to the young women who are the object of so much opprobrium--teenage mothers ("babies having babies")--this powerful book goes behind the stereotypes, the inflamed rhetoric, and the flip media sound bites to reveal the complex reality and troubling truths of teenage mothers in America today.
