Hearts. “Imagine thinking your son is dead—only to discover that he is alive, is a grown man, and has written you a letter. That's the heart of the highly engaging story of Hidden Hearts: The Peterborough Letters.
Author: Larry Smith
Publisher: Wheatmark, Inc.
Category: Biography & Autobiography
The original story of Hidden Hearts: The Peterborough Letters begins when Betty Beeby finds a cache of decades-old letters and diaries in an old barn on the family property in northern Michigan. Along with veteran journalist Larry Smith, she sorts and makes sense out of dozens of letters and diaries depicting a fascinating and colorful world long gone. This is the story of Minnie Griffin and the child she bore out of wedlock in 1876. Minnie is told her son is dead a month after his birth. Instead, unbeknownst to its mother, the child has been put up for adoption. Twenty-seven years later, the son, Loren Post, seeks Minnie out. By then she has an orderly, independent life as a dressmaker in Peterborough, Ontario. The shock of learning her son is alive shatters her peace and plunges her into a tumult of raging emotions. It is 1904 when Loren takes off to meet his best friend and road buddy, Norton Pearl, at the World's Fair in St. Louis. But first he must go to Peterborough to meet and spend a week with Minnie. The adventure will take the two young men to the fair and beyond, to New Orleans, Texas, the Grand Canyon, Oregon, and Montana while Minnie pursues him with letters posted via general delivery. Captivating and comical experiences spring to vibrant life through the original writings of the young men and women whose stories intersect with Minnie and Loren and Norton. Hidden Hearts: The Peterborough Letters is an extraordinary look into 1904 America. It portrays authentic hallmarks of a particular time in our history -- the earnest appetite for culture and self-improvement; the casual, unthinking racism and sexism; and the respect for hard work and endurance. But it is also a touching human story of a family reunited that will stay with you for a long time.

Category: Biography & Autobiography
The pioneering surgeon Dr. Denton Cooley performed his first human heart transplant in 1968 and astounded the world in 1969 by conducting the first successful implantation of a totally artificial heart in a human being. Over the course of his career, Cooley and his associates performed thousands of open-heart operations and pioneered the use of new surgical procedures. Of all his achievements, however, Cooley was most proud of the Texas Heart Institute, which he founded in 1962 with a mission to use education, research, and improved patient care to decrease the devastating effects of cardiovascular disease. In 100,000 Hearts, Cooley tells about his childhood in Houston, his education at the University of Texas, his medical-school training at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and Johns Hopkins, and his service in the Army Medical Corps. While at Johns Hopkins, Cooley assisted in a groundbreaking operation to correct an infant’s congenital heart defect, which inspired him to specialize in heart surgery. Cooley’s detailed descriptions of working in the operating room at crucial points in medical history offer a fascinating perspective on the distance medical science traveled in just a few decades.
