“A powerful and important tale of love and war, art and family…I was transported.” —Allison Pataki, New York Times bestselling author “Albanese artfully weaves Adele’s story with Maria’s harrowing life under the Nazis, but it’s hard to read Stolen Beauty without seeing ugly echoes in today’s headlines. Seven decades after World War II, have we learned nothing?” —USA TODAY From the dawn of the twentieth century to the devastation of World War II, this exhilarating novel of love, war, art, and family gives voice to two extraordinary women and brings to life the true story behind the creation and near destruction of Gustav Klimt’s most remarkable paintings. In the dazzling glitter of 1903 Vienna, Adele Bloch-Bauer—young, beautiful, brilliant, and Jewish—meets painter Gustav Klimt. Wealthy in everything but freedom, Adele embraces Klimt’s renegade genius as the two awaken to the erotic possibilities on the canvas and beyond. Though they enjoy a life where sex and art are just beginning to break through the façade of conventional society, the city is also troubled by a disturbing increase in anti-Semitism as political hatred simmers in the shadows of Adele’s coffeehouse afternoons and cultural salons. Nearly forty years later, Adele’s niece Maria Altmann is a newlywed when the Nazis invade Austria—and overnight, her beloved Vienna becomes a war zone. When her husband is arrested and her family is forced out of their stately home, Maria must summon the courage and resilience that is her aunt’s legacy if she is to survive and keep her loved ones—and their history—alive. Will Maria and her family escape the grip of Nazi rule? And what will become of the paintings for which her aunt sacrificed nearly everything? Impeccably researched and a “must-read for fans of Kristin Hannah’s The Nightingale and Paula McLain’s Circling the Sun” (Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author), Stolen Beauty juxtaposes passion and discovery against hatred and despair, and shines a light on our ability to love, to destroy, and above all, to endure.
And Other Tales of Mothers, Daughters & Grandmothers
Author: Faith Andrews Bedford
Pubpsher: Sterling Publishing Company, Inc.
Category: Biography & Autobiography
A beautifully packaged celebration of mothers and daughters that will touch the heart--written by former Country Living columnist Faith Andrews Bedford. From the joyous chaos of raising small children to the thoughtful adventure of being a grandmother who "tells the stories,” Andrews Bedford’s charming essays capture motherhood in all its complexities and expressions. Drawing on unforgettable memories from both her Midwestern childhood and her married life in a village near the Blue Ridge Mountains, Faith explores the pleasures of everyday life within the family and the traditions that unite the generations. From her touching recollection of the matching "sister dresses” she and her siblings received every Easter to her uniquely clever method of teaching her kids to write thank you notes, Andrews Bedford lovingly captures the triumphs of being a mom.
"Faeries," photographer Keri Pickett's latest project, welcomes us into a secluded community in the wooded Minnesota sanctuary of Kawashaway, home of the self-proclaimed "radical faeries," a name chosen by a group of mostly gay men to express pride and solidarity in their differences. Here, in this idyllic, remote setting, an annual retreat takes place: a week of camp fires, communal bonding, and gender bending. Pickett's photographs span six years of these summer gatherings, at which people from across the country join together as friends and family. This group forms a circle of souls, individuals seeking to find their place in a culture that seems to prize individuality but frequently distrusts those who are different. As the book relates through interviews with participants of the gatherings, the faerie community provides for much more than a frolic in the woods. It has become a stabilizing support network--a new radical means of extended family. Pickett's elegant black-and-white images are intimate records of the spiritual exploration and the unique closeness found far away from everyday life. Her photographs convey comfort and comedy, solace and joy, exuberance and contemplation. The surprising sight of men in drag against the backdrop of a forest lends the volume an unusual visual drama. She captures the poignant gesture of an embrace, the naturalness and beauty of naked bodies, and a gleefully chaotic abundance of fancy frocks. Through these details "Faeries" reveals the cautious and joyful evolution of a community with members across the United States. An extended text, transcribed and edited from conversations with members of the faeries, accompanies thephotographs. In their own words, they discuss friendship, the process of coming out, magic, religion, and ritual. The voices speak of self-discovery, personal growth, and a sought-after sense of safety--themes gracefully and effectively echoed by Pickett's classically beautiful and often humorous photographs.

I have learned and finally accept that there is no complete restoration from the horrific damage caused by sexual child abuse. This damage on some level is permanent. The victim must learn to live with the harm that has been forced into their lives. Shame and guilt takes great control of a victims life, yet with help one can learn that they are not at fault for this abuse and no longer live a life burdened with shame and guilt. A victim can gain self-worth and in time learn to become emotionally healthy and complete. Part of the healing process is to learn that the abuse will always be a part of the victims history, yet it doesnt have to control the victims future. Shame and guilt controlled many areas of my life most of my life. The destruction of my abuse has been a fight for me to over come. This fight raged on even when I didnt understand the causes for my low self esteem, depressions and shyness, which I dealt with the greatest part of my life. These emotions were rooted deep into my soul. All of these terrible emotions that I dealt with over the years were caused by the abuse that I suffered with at the hands of the Monster. This abuse was my ultimate betrayal this abuse is every victims ultimate betrayal. A Victims silence is the child molesters protection
