What was it like to be a soldier's wife in Canada during the First World War? More than 80,000 Canadian women were married to men who left home to fight in the war, and its effects on their lives were transformative and often traumatic. Yet the everyday struggles of Canadian war wives, lived far from the battlefields of France, have remained in the shadows of historical memory. Anxious Days and Tearful Nights highlights how Canadian women's experiences of wartime marital separation resembled and differed from those of their European counterparts. Drawing on the letters of married couples separated by wartime service and the military service records of hundreds of Canadian soldiers, Martha Hanna reveals how couples used correspondence to maintain the routine and the affection of domestic life. She explores how women managed households and budgets, how those with children coped with the challenges of what we today would call single parenthood, and when and why some war wives chose to relocate to Britain to be nearer to their husbands. More than anything else, the life of a war wife - especially a war wife separated from her husband for years on end - was marked and marred by unrelieved psychological stress. Through this close personal lens Hanna reveals a broader picture of how war's effects persist across time and space.

Inspired by American studies of the impact of government programs on clients' political activity, Take a Number breaks new ground by investigating the lessons that people draw from their experiences with government bureaucracies, reaching very different conclusions about the effects of program participation in Canada. People's experiences with service providers matter. Far from being de-politicizing, negative experiences can be empowering, stimulating greater political interest and more political activity. In contrast to the findings of some American studies, there is no evidence that these encounters leave claimants in Canada with the sense that they are neither legitimate nor effective actors in the public sphere. Rather than discouraging participation in politics, being a recipient of means-tested benefits likewise seems to be politically mobilizing. Based on extensive survey data, Take a Number casts new light on the problem of non-take-up of social benefits. Elisabeth Gidengil reveals that those who are most likely to benefit are often unaware of government programs. The more demanding and intrusive the claiming process, the more likely claimants are to find it difficult to access the program. These experiences with government programs prove to have larger implications for users' confidence in institutions and their satisfaction with democracy. A wide-ranging study of the politicizing effects of social program participation, Take a Number introduces a compelling new dimension to our understanding of why some citizens are politically active while others remain quiescent.

Journey to Healing for the Brokenhearted is a book about lost love, broken promises, and the long road to understanding and forgiveness. In a deeply personal way, Victoria Wilson Darrah tells the story of her journey through the valley of divorce, and her discovery that God can still use our weakness and our sadness and our tears to bring about healing and restoration in our relationships with those who have hurt us. "The book is inspiring, captivating, provoking, and challenging. At the end of this reading, one is left with the challenge to live at peace with all men and to forgive as Christ has forgiven us." The Rev. Joy Magala, St. Mark's Episcopal Church, CA "I found it riveting and very moving. Her frankness and eventual forgiveness of her husband through her love and obedience to the will of God is an inspiration and can only bring hope and restoration for anyone who is going through any traumatic experience." Bertha Graham, African Enterprise, CA "Victoria's book is definitely un-put-down-able. Victoria's words have the power to take hold of your thoughts. I know I will find myself thinking about her story for a very long time. The constructive thoughts transcribed straight from Victoria's journal will be a great help to Christian women who are struggling with some of the same issues the author faced." Darla Ebert, Missionary in the Philippines for thirty years Ugandan-born Victoria Wilson Darrah is an author/speaker/television producer who lives in Arcadia, California with her son, Jordan. She is the author of My Father's Daughter: Continuing the Dream, a tribute to her beloved father and his dream for peace and reconciliation, beginning in Africa and spreading around the world. Victoria is a graduate of USC and UCLA with degrees in television and film production.

Praying Christians are society's best revolutionaries. They engage in the most remarkable act a human can perform, and, in so doing, unleash God's sustaining power. In No Easy Road, Dick Eastman offers challenge, guidance, and encouragement to help believers on the sometimes difficult, though always rewarding, journey of prayer. This best-selling classic, originally published by Baker in 1971, tracks a Pilgrim's Progress-like progression down the road of prayer. Using stories from biblical times to today, it walks readers through the Peak of Unbelief, the Plateau of Intercession, the Mountain of Self-will, and more. Designed for all believers who seek to revitalize their prayer lives, it is also a pertinent resource for pastors, prayer leaders, missionaries, and others who wish to mobilize others to pray.

It seemed like a good idea at the time to Anne Hardaway: a jolly family reunion in the sun and sand of Oceanside Heights on the Jersey Shore. But it turns out to be the last gathering of any kind for wealthy Great-aunt Hannah, who is discovered on the beach viciously stabbed to death … by a knife taken from Anne's own kitchen! With a $50 million inheritance at stake, any one of her kin could be the culprit, but it's Anne whom the evidence accuses. A killer isn't satisfied yet, however. As the professional ghostwriter/amateur sleuth intensifies her hunt for the blood relative with a taste for blood, Anne realizes her options are growing frighteningly limited. She can spend the rest of her life in prison … or lose it right now!

An emotional survival guide to pregnancy and childbirth Like the other volumes in the Family Matters series, this authoritative new book provides expert advice to ordinary people struggling with everyday challenges-in this case, the emotional trials of new mothers.

Jackie Ganley (London, UK) works for Britain's National Health Service.
