Luck Was My Companion

In this autobiography, LUCK WAS MY COMPANION, Rowland C. Marshall, who travelled throughout the globe visiting countries most people only dream about, tells of his many experiences in time of peace and war. He describes his early childhood and a career in the Merchant Service, including the seamy side, and his misfortunes with Malaria. The war year of 1942 saw him aboard an ill-fated merchant ship loaded with food, medical supplies and high explosives, bound for the beleaguered Island of Malta, whose people were starving. Facing almost certain death, he lived to fight on, unlike his shipmates, many of whom perished. By September of 1943 he was back in the thick of it, ferrying troops between Alexandria and Toranto during the invasion of Italy. Then on June 6, 1944, Liberation Day for Europe, he served aboard one of many hospital ships, ferrying wounded American soldiers from Omaha Beach. The author hopes some of his recounting will make you laugh or maybe at times shed a tear, as he did while writing his story. To this day he often looks back at the strange twists and turns that occurred throughout his life, to say, 'Luck has been my constant companion.'

I know I have not had much luck calming your exuberance.” “You may all laugh at my expense if it pleases you,” said Elizabeth when they did just that. She glared about the room. “But I warn you to beware of my uncle.

The Companion

Elizabeth intended her stay with Mrs. Collins in Kent to be a pleasant and uneventful time spent with her dear friend, engaged in nothing of more import than laughing about Charlotte's ineffectual husband and walking the woods of his patroness's estate. But a sudden tragedy leaves Elizabeth directly in Lady Catherine de Bourgh's sights, and though Elizabeth is reluctant, she accedes to the lady's demands. It is not long, however, before the peace of the estate is shattered, for a woman long-oppressed has begun to spread her wings. What comes after is a whirlwind of events, in which Elizabeth discovers that her carefully held opinions are not infallible. Furthermore, a certain gentleman of her acquaintance might be the key to Elizabeth's happiness.

The Autobiography of an Ex Colored Man

A gifted musician’s decision to navigate society as a white man causes an internal debate about anti-blackness and the explicit nature of intent versus impact. James Weldon Johnson presents a distinct conflict driven by a person’s desires and overwhelming fear. The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man follows the story of an unnamed narrator and his unique experience as a fair-skinned Black person. As a child, he is initially unaware of his race, but his mother soon clarifies their family’s ancestry. The young man’s ability to pass for white allows him to negate the harsh and discriminatory treatment most Black people face. This leads to a series of events that significantly shape the way he views his place in society. James Weldon Johnson delivers a captivating tale of identity politics in the U.S. and abroad. The main character is living a life of omission that provides public gain at a personal cost. This story maintains its relevance as a critical examination of race in society. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man is both modern and readable.
