Book Summary:

Wilson’s ambition alone is exciting. . . . [His] writing has a Houdini-like perfection, wherein no matter how grim the variables, each lovely sentence manages to escape with all its parts intact.” —Boston Globe The eagerly-anticipated follow-up to the New York Times bestseller The Family Fang—a warm-hearted and moving story about a young woman making a family on her own terms. When Isabelle Poole meets Dr. Preston Grind, she’s fresh out of high school, pregnant with her art teacher's baby, and totally on her own. Izzy knows she can be a good mother but without any money or relatives to help, she’s left searching. Dr. Grind, an awkwardly charming child psychologist, has spent his life studying family, even after tragedy struck his own. Now, with the help of an eccentric billionaire, he has the chance to create a “perfect little world”—to study what would happen when ten children are raised collectively, without knowing who their biological parents are. He calls it The Infinite Family Project and he wants Izzy and her son to join. This attempt at a utopian ideal starts off promising, but soon the gentle equilibrium among the families disintegrates: unspoken resentments between the couples begin to fester; the project's funding becomes tenuous; and Izzy’s growing feelings for Dr. Grind make her question her participation in this strange experiment in the first place. Written with the same compassion and charm that won over legions of readers with The Family Fang, Kevin Wilson shows us with grace and humor that the best families are the ones we make for ourselves.

Book Summary:

There is a principle in grief counseling that states, “In telling the story the healing takes place.” The book entitled Tears from the Heart by Mark Hodapp provides a springboard in which the healing can begin. Death brings grief which is a response to loss. The whole person, physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally reacts to this loss. If the loss is not addressed appropriately, it often times goes underground and can cause further pain. God created the human person to deal with loss, which is a part of the human condition, by giving the human person the ability to share his tears and his story. This work which is a collage of stories that covers the whole spectrum of ages from the child to the senior citizen as well as varied types of deaths provides the reader an opportunity to tap into his or her own story which can lead to healing. The season of grief, which each person experiences differently, can last for a year or more. The various seasonal photos selected in this work take this grief reality into account. Important to the grief process is the healing role of faith which the author brings to the forefront by his use of photos and grief story selections. No matter what stage of loss the individual may be in this book could assist them in the process. It allows them to go through the valley of tears and sadness and rise to the mountain top of hope and joy.

Book Summary:

DEEP, DEEP in the ROUGH, ROUGH is a golf comedy about a golf match conceived by four wealthy members of the famous Burning Bridges Golf Club, who, in a drunken bet, hire four amiable losers to play a golf match like no other, a throwback to the earliest days of golf -- through 4 states, over 40 days and covering 400 miles -- through the wilderness! Accompanying the unlikely foursome is a crusty old codger named Cookie, driving a team of horses and a tricked-out Conestoga wagon and the scorekeepers of the game, an ex-KGB couple named Boris and Ludmilla representing the Royal and Ancient Golf Union, the owners of the rules of golf. What starts out a crazy bet soon becomes a worldwide sensation as the bizarro foursome and their epic golf match are covered by the television sports reporter Donna Dina and her intrepid cameraman. What transpires is a golf match of biblical proportions, through the area known as the Four Corners, where New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Arizona share a border, but not a golf course in hundreds of miles! Through the wide use of the player’s dreams and fantasies, as well as a wild concoction of memorable characters they meet along the way, this unlikely journey highlights the deeper meanings of the game of golf and ultimately leads to bonds of love and friendship no one could have ever imagined. Deep, Deep in the Rough, Rough could forever change the nature of golf and, perhaps, golf in nature. Hold on to your golf carts because this is one wild ride you will never forget.

Maddy Sommers, having been raised by physically and mentally abusive parents, found her spirit and world outlook through the love of her beloved aunts and uncle. Throughout her life, she bore the torturous scars of her past abuse. She loathed those that she considered to be bullies and took it upon herself to right perceived wrongs, and she managed to do so in rather creative and messy ways. As she was exacting her brand of justice upon abusive mates who crossed her path, she was simultaneously seeking true love in her own awkward way. Her search for her personal prince was sometimes humorous and other times tragic. Let us just say that she was a romantically hopeful young lady with a massive chip on her shoulder, and those who crossed her would soon learn that they would have been advised to be “cool with Maddy.”
