Charles Nevin seems to have hit upon a promising idea: exploring the world of Bath through the use of fiction. I enjoy short stories, and I think it is very clever that each short story is followed by an afterword that separates the fact from the fiction. What a great way to teach history through the use of literature!
Despite the progress our country has made in Civil Rights over the past century, Sunday morning is still one of the most segregated times in America. It seems like the only people striving to lead in the area of racial reconciliation are politicians, activists, and celebrities. Pastor Dan Willis wants to know… Where is the church?

Suddenly out of work and soon to be homeless, they set off in search of a new life in Ireland, a country they had never visited. A
When they meet a memorial service, they discover that they have an inexplicable magnetic pull toward one another. A Reason to Grieve is full of quirky friends and fun banter as the two characters slowly explore their feelings for one another. Will they be able to create a future together, or are the hurts of the past too deep to bury?
enjoy books that bring to life forgotten characters of the past, especially if they are women. This book introduced me to a new aspect of one of my favorite periods of history. I would now like to read the nonfiction text by Akkerman that inspired it.
