What Will Not Kill You ... A Memoir, by Annemarie Duparc
Retired Magistrate pens memoir confronting feminist issues like sexism in the workplace, along with societal plagues like depression and divorce. This memoir is a story as well as a study of sustained resilience. You'll not find slavery, poverty or exile in the author's background. Her distress was not collective but individual, brought on by circumstances that fostered a sleep disorder and depression. Perhaps therefore harder to survive, and yet so common in our society, although hardly acknowledged.
The Curious Caves of Honey Cove, by Samantha McDermott
"A city girl is challenged by a handsome beachcomber to uncover what is going on in the ominous caves and which nice townspeople are involved in it.
"If you're exhausted from mankind's blood-and-gore history that continues into the present and will continue evermore; if you're weary from the savage stories in the news, which the Hollywood entertainment industry loves to pick up and produce; if you would like a gentle, heart-warming story -- without the gratuitous grisly graphics -- placed in a bracing rocky-beach setting, I recommend this shining and witty bood, The Curious Caves of Honey Cove, by Samantha McDermott. This is a mystery but it's not just a mystery! This wise author will renew your faith in humanity." -- Bonnie Langhaar
