Twelve Days

Twelve Days before Christmas, Rachel McRae opens her front door and a social worker puts a baby in her arms-one who comes with a four-year-old boy and an eleven-year-old girl-siblings abandoned and in need of a temporary home. But there's a catch: Rachel's family is falling apart. Rachel and her husband, Sam, have dreamed of a house filled with children-a dream that has led them to repeated heartbreak. Sam McRae has finally decided the only thing left to do is leave his wife. Reluctantly, Rachel and Sam take the children in, but just until after Christmas. They will do their best not to fall in love with them, not to get their hopes up that this time a miracle will happen. That these children will stay, and that their marriage can still be saved.

Merchant Prince

Alexander Duncan McRae, a Canadian who made good, is largely forgotten even though his enterprise and colourful life helped define the growth of western Canada. McRae played a leading role in the birth of many prairie communities before becoming a West Coast industrialist in lumber, mining and fisheries. He was a key figure in BC's "golden years," an opulent era in the early 20th century. McRae also served Canada as a First World War general and returned from overseas to become an outspoken BC politician, federal member of Parliament and senator. After donating Hycroft to the government for use as a veterans' hospital, McRae devoted his later years to Eaglecrest, a Qualicum Beach country estate and a 4,000-acre experimental farm. Alexander Duncan McRae was a blend of social conscience, political savvy and entrepreneurial skill, a true "merchant prince." Hycroft, Alexander and Blaunche McRae's elegant 30-room mansion, became the centre of Vancouver's social life in Shaughnessy and a lasting symbol of the age. Today, Hycroft and half of the original McRae estate are owned, cherished and enjoyed by the members of the University Women's Club of Vancouver.

Jacksonville on Wheels  A Car Culture Retrospective

Jacksonville has long been a mecca for car enthusiasts and collectors, due in part to the city's unique automotive history. Bystanders gazed in wonder as John Einig drove Florida's very first steam-powered horseless carriage through the streets in 1889. Fred Gilbert opened the first automobile dealership in 1903, just before the city's first automobile parade, and people were soon clamoring to buy cars of their own. Claude Nolan, whose local dealership has been in business for well over a century, gained fame for racing his Cadillac against an airplane at the Jacksonville Fairgrounds. NASCAR held races at the Jacksonville Speedway in the '50s and '60s. Author Dorothy K. Fletcher explores the rich history and memories of car culture in the River City.

“Looks like we'll have a white Christmas,” said Annie, as it was three days before the holiday. She got up and dressed to take ... “Dr. McRae?” “Yes,” I said. “This is Rachel Wise.” She sounded distraught. “Yes, Rachel, what's wrong?

A Dog in the Manger and Other Christmas Stories

An immaculate blanket of snowfall, the blessing of an unexpected gift, the miracle of a Heavenly Child—surprises are ingrained into the very nature of the Christmas tradition. Yet, when the overwhelming spirit of the holiday season collides with the chance conflicts of everyday life, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep the true meaning of Christmas in sight. A Dog in the Manger and Other Christmas Stories is a collection of tales that capture the chaos of the yuletide while also portraying the power of Christmas to shepherd souls of all kinds—young, old, hopeful, lost, content, confused—to confront and redefine faith in the face of spiritual adversity. Sure to inspire reflection and retelling, these stories celebrate the miracles of everyday life, showing that strangers can become angels, foes can become good Samaritans, and neighborhoods can become communities of faith. Even the most chaotic incidents bring people closer to themselves, their families, their communities, and to God during the Christmas season.

Under Our Skin

A White Family's Journey through South Africa's Darkest Years Donald McRae ... There could be no better start to Christmas and Hogmanay than being surrounded by his family as a great Scot stormed the stage.

Under Our Skin

Don McRae grew up in a South Africa where his father would call the black men he met 'boy' and where his mother insisted that their black servants used tin mugs, plates and cutlery as they ate the family's left-over food in the backyard of their grand suburban property. The McRaes, like so many white people, seemed oblivious to the violent injustices of apartheid. As the author grew up, the political differences between father and son widened and when Don refused to join up for National Service, risking imprisonment or exile overseas, the two were torn apart. It wasn't until years later that the author discovered that the father with whom he had fought so bitterly had later in his life transformed himself into a political hero. Risking everything one dark and rainy night Ian McRae travelled secretly into the black township of Soweto to meet members of Nelson Mandela's then banned African National Congress to discuss ways to bring power to black South Africa. He had no political ambitions; he was just a man trying to replace the worst in himself with something better. Under Our Skinis a memoir of these tumultuous years in South Africa's history, as told through the author's family story. It offers an intimate and penetrating perspective on life under apartheid, and tells a story of courage and fear, hope and desolation and love and pain, especially between a father and his son.

The Wanderer

The first piece of evidence had vanished into the Christmas night. A short time later, John F. McRae, a deputy U.S. marshal in Worth County, Georgia, was sitting down to lunch when a friend burst in: Thirty-six Africans from the ...

The Wanderer

On Nov. 28, 1858, a ship called the Wanderer slipped silently into a coastal channel and unloaded its cargo of over 400 African slaves onto Jekyll Island, Georgia, thirty eight years after the African slave trade had been made illegal. It was the last ship ever to bring a cargo of African slaves to American soil. Built in 1856, the Wanderer began life as a luxury racing yacht, flying the pennant of the New York Yacht Club and cited as the successor to the famous yacht America. But within a year of its creation, the Wanderer was secretly converted into a slave ship, and, with the New York Yacht Club pennant still flying above as a diversion, sailed off to Africa. The Wanderer's mission was meant to be more than a slaving venture, however. It was designed by its radical conspirators to defy the federal government and speed the nation's descent into civil war. The New York Times first reported the story as a hoax; however, as groups of Africans began to appear in the small towns surrounding Savannah, the story of the Wanderer began to leak out; igniting a fire of protest and debate that made headlines throughout the nation and across the Atlantic. As the story shifts between Savannah, Jekyll Island, the Congo River, London, and New York City, the Wanderer's tale is played out in heated Southern courtrooms, the offices of the New York Times, The White House, the slave markets of Africa and some of the most charming homes Southern royalty had to offer. In a gripping account of the high seas and the high life in New York and Savannah, Erik Calonius brings to light one of the most important and little remembered stories of the Civil War period.
