“My Special Angel, Miss Beverly Ann Brown,” is a story celebrating the life of a person who was born in 1962 and diagnosed at birth as a “Mongoloid,” later known as Down’s syndrome. At that time many “mentally retarded” persons as they were referred to, were institutionalized at birth or kept at home as “closet children.” Because they were believed to be unteachable, there were no schools or vocational workshops to even try to teach them. Change was coming and I believe that God’s purpose for Beverly on earth was to be a part of that change of the attitude toward and the mistreatment and neglect of the mentally challenged. Even at a young age, Beverly was a blessing spreading God’s love with her hugs to everyone she met. Through her experiences on her life’s journey and her desire for independence, this red-haired, energetic, beautiful lady was instrumental in helping to pave the way for other mentally challenged persons. At age fifty-five, when Beverly had fulfilled her mission and purpose on earth, God called her home.
A riveting medical memoir about a family’s journey through multiple surgeries, and a determined battle for survival. Jessica Carmel was born with a severe congenital heart condition. When she was just four days old, her parents learned she would need heart surgery. They had no idea that her future held multiple surgeries and even more unexpected challenges. Sixteen years later, as Jessica sat in her cardiologist’s office for a routine checkup, he told her and her mom that there was nothing more he could do for her. Jessica needed a heart transplant. Three weeks later, Jessica underwent heart transplant surgery. Her recovery was long, but good—but about ten years later, she learned that she was in desperate need of a new kidney. Her only hope of survival was her sister, Amy—who heroically offered up one of her own kidneys. Now their mother would be seeing both of her daughters off to the operating room . . . This remarkable story of one young woman’s journey through the medical maze—including financial struggles and battles with insurance companies—and a family’s determination to survive and thrive together, is both an informative, fascinating look at health care and an uplifting, inspiring read.
Meet Tyrone Lock: born of farmers' stock; overeducated, underemployed. An inveterate pick-nose and clandestine squeezer of Revels in the supermarket. Disaffected in a way that Adrian Mole would recognize (though as Tyrone takes pains to point out, he's hardly a tortured artist; his BA was in Economics). Inexplicably involved with the lovely, pampered Miss Athena Till. The young couple are preparing for their first trip abroad: the obligatory horizon-widening sojourn in Europe, the Land of the Forefathers and the Wellspring of Culture. Except that this is an excursion that Tyrone would do anything to get out of. His horizons are plenty broad, thank you very much, and he'd rather spend his days taking walks with his dog, fly-fishing without a hook, and composing such melodious odes to his native land as: O Beaver Creek, In the Foothills of Alberta's Rocky Mountains, I would sooner have you, Than a bunch of crappy marble fountains. First published in 1974 and now released for the first time in paperback, Lonesome Hero is a comic classic, the award-winning smartass novel that launched a spectacular writing career. This new revised edition restores scenes deleted from the original and also features an introduction by the inimitable Mark Anthony Jarman and an afterword by the author, who reflects how glad he is, looking back at his first novel, that Lonesome Hero still manages to embody the ironies of the era, the fact that we often understood perfectly how cartoonish we were. The early '70s was about avoiding work at all costs and trying to live amusingly during all one's waking hours: about how weirdly far we would go to accomplish that.
