I am privileged to know Tom Henry personally, a man who has devoted much of his amazing life to the art of seafaring. His remarkable story of a young mansetting out on a traditional maritime career and then spending a great deal of his life at sea is sure to fascinate those addicted to old fashioned mariner's tales. It is a charming story of a once-common lifestyle that has now almost entirely disappeared. I recommend it highly. Joseph Balkoski, author of Omaha Beach: D-Day, June 6, 1944 "Life at sea is always a fascinating subject. With charm, wit, and a story teller's skill, Henry brings alive his decades long career as a merchant seaman with great stories about people, exotic places and the day to day business of a ship's officer at work and play. It is a tale that only an old sailor could tell. A terrific read for sea buffs and 'landlubbers' alike." Raymond J. Batvinis, PhD, author of The Origins of FBI Counter Intelligence Thomas E. Henry was born and raised on the south shore of Long Island, New York. There he attended the local Babylon schools until March 1945, when he left at age seventeen to serve on active duty in the U.S. Naval Reserve. During his year and a half in the Navy he achieved the rank of gunners's mate third class. Following his discharge from the service he attended, on the 'GI Bill' the Cathedral Scholl of Saint Paul, in Garden City, New York. He graduated in June 1947 with his high school diploma. In 1951 he graduated from the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, which scholl readied him for a life in the United States Merchant Mariner. In 1985, at age fifty seven, and after thirty three years of service he retired. He had sailed as a ship's master with the United States Lines Company. For the following three years he served on periods of active duty in the Naval Reserve as a ship handling instructor at Little Creek, Virginia. He and Barbara, his devoted wife of over thirty years, reside in Stuart Florida, where Captain Henry is presently employed as an instructed at the well-known Chapman School of Seamanship.

In Be Different, New York Times bestselling author of Look Me in the Eye shares a new batch of endearing stories about his childhood, adolescence, and young adult years, giving the reader a rare window into the Autistic mind. In his bestselling memoir, Look Me in the Eye, John Elder Robison described growing up with Autism Spectrum Disorder at a time when the diagnosis didn’t exist. He was intelligent but socially isolated; his talents won him jobs with toy makers and rock bands but did little to endear him to authority figures and classmates, who were put off by his inclination to blurt out non sequiturs and avoid eye contact. By the time he was diagnosed at age forty, John had already developed a myriad of coping strategies that helped him achieve a seemingly normal, even highly successful, life. In each story, he offers practical advice for anyone who feels “different” on how to improve the weak communication and social skills that keep so many people from taking full advantage of their often remarkable gifts. With his trademark honesty and unapologetic eccentricity, Robison addresses questions like: • How to read others and follow their behaviors when in uncertain social situations • Why manners matter • How to harness your powers of concentration to master difficult skills • How to deal with bullies • When to make an effort to fit in, and when to embrace eccentricity • How to identify special gifts and use them to your advantage Every person has something unique to offer the world, and every person has the capacity to create strong, loving bonds with their friends and family. Be Different will help readers and those they love find their path to success.

"A brave, powerful memoir." —PEOPLE A captivating memoir that will change the way we look at identity and equality in this country Before she became the first transgender person to speak at a national political convention in 2016 at the age of twenty-six, Sarah McBride struggled with the decision to come out—not just to her family but to the students of American University, where she was serving as student body president. She’d known she was a girl from her earliest memories, but it wasn’t until the Facebook post announcing her truth went viral that she realized just how much impact her story could have on the country. Four years later, McBride was one of the nation’s most prominent transgender activists, walking the halls of the White House, advocating inclusive legislation, and addressing the country in the midst of a heated presidential election. She had also found her first love and future husband, Andy, a trans man and fellow activist, who complemented her in every way . . . until cancer tragically intervened. Informative, heartbreaking, and profoundly empowering, Tomorrow Will Be Different is McBride’s story of love and loss and a powerful entry point into the LGBTQ community’s battle for equal rights and what it means to be openly transgender. From issues like bathroom access to health care to gender in America, McBride weaves the important political and cultural milestones into a personal journey that will open hearts and change minds. As McBride urges: “We must never be a country that says there’s only one way to love, only one way to look, and only one way to live.” The fight for equality and freedom has only just begun.

In the 1800s, American women were largely restricted to the private sphere. Most had no choice but to spend their lives in the home, marrying in their teens and living only as wives, mothers, and pillars of domesticity. Even as the women’s movement came along midcentury, it focused more on gaining legal and political rights for women than on expanding their career opportunities. So in that time period, in which the options and expectations for women’s professional lives were so limited, it is remarkable that three sisters born in the 1850s, the Owen daughters of Missouri, all achieved success and appreciation in their careers. Doris Land Mueller’s Daring to Be Different tells the story of these exceptional sisters, whose contributions to their chosen fields are still noteworthy today. Mary, the oldest, followed a childhood interest in storytelling to become an internationally recognized folklorist, writing about the customs of Missouri’s Native Americans, the traditions of its African American communities, and the history of St. Joseph’s earliest settlers. The middle daughter, Luella, became a geologist, breaking into the “old boys club” of the nineteenth-century scientific community; her book, Cave Regions of the Ozarks and the Black Hills, was for over fifty years the only reference to include Missouri caves and is still a valuable resource on the subject. And the youngest Owen girl, Juliette, was a talented artist who painted images of birds and studied and wrote about ornithology. An ardent conservationist, Juliette was an animal advocate during the early days of the humane movement. Through a compelling narrative driven by thorough research, Mueller showcases the different personalities of the three sisters who all eschewed marriage to pursue their callings, putting their accomplishments in context with the place and times in which they lived. With family stories, illustrations of early St. Joseph, and images of the Owen family to enrich the story, this book pays tribute to the Owen sisters’ contributions to the Show-Me State. The latest addition to the Missouri Heritage Reader Series, Daring to Be Different will appeal to anyone interested in Missouri history and the early years of the women’s movement.

-Inferior men are made superior in the interior. -The congregation can never rise above the pulpit and the pulpit can never rise above the closet. -If the church were a University of Hypocrisy, a greater number of men would be Professors.

In this brand new novel, Mack Reynolds deposits us into just such a future. It is a world where America is rapidly being turned into a second-rate power as its industries go bankrupt. A world that is falling under the wheels of the Soviet juggernaut, peacefully and passively.

We will all live for eternity. That is our destiny. The only question is: will we choose an eternity with the Lord in heaven or an eternity without him in hell? We can try to ignore, deny, or refuse to answer the question, but it will not change the outcome. For Joyce Howard, the death of her husband, Ted—her most intimate and trusted confidante, lover, and friend—became an invitation to journey with Christ to places she had never been. In Called to Be Different, Joyce writes about her search for forgiveness, reconciliation, and healing, while ultimately realizing that this is a journey still in progress, incomplete until we are standing before our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, preparing to spend eternity with our Father in heaven. Read along with Joyce's struggles and triumphs, and enter into the heart of Christ. Through the power of his blood, we are Called to Be Different.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Circle of Friends and The Glass Lake comes This Year It Will Be Different, a stunning new work that brings us the magic and spirit of Christmas in fifteen stories filled with Maeve Binchy's trademark wit, charm, and sheer storytelling genius. Instead of nostalgia, Binchy evokes contemporary life; instead of Christmas homilies, she offers truth; and instead of sugarplums, she brings us the nourishment of holidays that precipitate change, growth, and new beginnings. In "A Typical Irish Christmas," a grieving New York widower heads for a holiday in Ireland and finds an unexpected destination not just for himself, but for a father and daughter at odds. The title story "This Year It Will Be Different" also delves into the emotions of a person at mid-life--a woman with a complacent husband and grown children who are entering a season that can forever alter her life, and theirs. In "Pulling Together," a teacher not yet out of her twenties sees her affair with a married man at a turning point as Christmas Eve approaches--and she may be off on a new direction with some unusual friends. And in the delightful tale "The Hard Core," the four most recalcitrant residents of a nursing home are left alone at Christmas with the owner's daughter in charge: the result is sure to be disaster--or the kind of life-affirming renewal that only the spirit of the season can bring. The stories in This Year It Will Be Different powerfully evoke many lives--step-families grappling with ex's, long-married couples faced with in-law problems, a wandering husband choosing between "the other woman" and his wife, a child caught in grown-up tugs-of-war--during the one holiday when feelings cannot be easily hidden. The time of year may be magical, imbued with meaning. But the situations are universal. And Maeve Binchy makes us care about them all. As the Philadelphia Inquirer noted, "Maeve Binchy's people come to life fully. They make you laugh and cry and disturb your sleep." They do precisely that in this extraordinary collection, on the night before Christmas when we are snug in our beds, or anywhere, any time of the year.
