A Year of Pink Roses

On a beautiful autumn day, James is out for a leisurely stroll in the city sunshine. In his wanderings, he spots a beautiful woman standing on the subway platform. When she boards the train, he can't help but be entranced by her grace and beauty, but they are separated when he gives up his seat to an elderly woman. He disembarks soon after, reluctantly leaving the woman behind. Coming upon a small caf , James sees the woman again, and the two instantly strike up a conversation. Her name is Lauren, and she is a professional model. They have an enjoyable lunch together, and Lauren agrees to have dinner with James soon. Ecstatic, James returns to his job as an ER doctor and can't stop thinking about her. The road to love is a rocky one. Lauren is already in a relationship and struggles with her feelings for James. When she breaks up with her boyfriend, James is overjoyed and falls head over heels in love with her. For a time, they bask in the newness of their relationship, but it's not long before Lauren's fear of commitment reappears. Can Lauren and James surpass the obstacles to love, or will their relationship succumb to doubt and fear?

The Rose Garden

A literary event—twenty short stories by the late Maeve Brennan, one of The new Yorker's most admired writers. Five are set in the author's native Dublin, a city, like Joyce's, of paralyzed souls and unexpressed love. the others are set in and around her adopted Manhattan, which she once called "the capsized city—half–capsized, anyway, with the inhabitants hanging on, most of them still able to laugh as they cling to the island that is their life's predicament." Some of the stories are quietly tender, some ferociously satirical, some unique in their chilly emotional weather. All are Maeve Brennan at her incomparable best.

Light Years

In 2007, Caroline Woodward was itching for a change. With an established career in book-selling and promotion, four books of her own and having raised a son with her husband, Jeff, she yearned for adventure and to re-ignite her passion for writing. Jeff was tired of piecing together low-paying part-time jobs and, with Caroline’s encouragement, applied for a position as a relief lightkeeper on a remote North Pacific island. They endured lonely months of living apart, but the way of life rejuvenated Jeff and inspired Caroline to contemplate serious shifts in order to accompany him. When a permanent position for a lighthouse keeper became available, Caroline quit her job and joined Jeff on the lights. Caroline soon learned that the lighthouse-keeping life does not consist of long, empty hours in which to write. The reality is hard physical labour, long stretches of isolation and the constant threat of de-staffing. Beginning with a 3:30 a.m. weather report, the days are filled with maintaining the light station buildings, sea sampling, radio communication, beach cleanup, wildlife encounters and everything in between. As for dangerous rescue missions or dramatic shipwrecks—that kind of excitement is rare. “So far the only life I know I’ve saved is my own,” she says, with her trademark dry wit. Yet Caroline is exhilarated by the scenic coastline with its drizzle and fog, seabirds and whales, and finds time to grow a garden and, as anticipated, write. Told with eloquent introspection and an eye for detail, Light Years is the personal account of a lighthouse keeper in twenty-first century British Columbia—an account that details Caroline’s endurance of extreme climatic, interpersonal and medical challenges, as well as the practical and psychological aspects of living a happy, healthy, useful and creative life in isolation.

Roses Down Under

The rose is undoubtedly the most popular garden flower in the world. When settlers came from the Northern Hemisphere to Australia and New Zealand they brought their treasured roses with them. Roses Down Under follows the way roses may have been introduced into both countries where they not indigenous. In each country enthusiastic gardeners and Rosarians such as Alister Clark and Ron Bell in Australia and Ken Nobbs and Sam McGredy in New Zealand were inspired to develop their own varieties. There is a chapter dealing with the complexities of hybridisation, going through the process step by step, so the reader can follow in their footsteps. Various rose breeders from both countries, both professional and amateur, are listed, together with numerous photographs of their significant varieties. These illustrate the differences, as well as the similarities, of roses produced in Australia and New Zealand since the days of the first settlers. The Victoria State Rose Garden at Werribee, outside Melbourne, has been chosen to represent the large number of rose gardens in Australia, with many photographs illustrating the diverse collection of roses growing there. In New Zealand, the Trevor Griffiths Rose Garden in Timaru was chosen because of the comprehensive nature of roses planted in that very interesting garden. The final chapter asks where roses will be in the future. Will varieties produced in each country be similar, or very different? One thing is sure. They will always be, for gardeners, the Queen of Flowers.

Seasons In Cancer

In 1992, George Anderson’s thirty-nine year old wife, Lois, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Little did he realize how profoundly her diagnosis would affect him both personally and professionally. As a registered nurse of twenty-five years, he was assaulted by complex emotions both at home and at his workplace, requiring him to brave these emotions on both fronts. Seasons In Cancer is an extraordinary chronicle of human conflict and resolution which generated five short stories over a seven year period. This chronicle describes the author’s experiences as a man dealing with loss and grief at home and work in today’s society. Although this was a very volatile time for him, the lessons he learns and illustrates with these stories will help everyone who is confronting a life-changing experience-and everyone who has, or had, a friend or loved one undergoing such emotional turmoil. Beautifully written, sometimes painful, sometimes touching, often uplifting, the reader will experience emotions never thought possible in a book such as this
