This collection bundles two of popular author Sophie Hudson’s books together in one e-book, for a great value! A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet There’s nothing quite like family—for good or bad. But in a world where we sometimes know more about the Kardashians than we do the people sleeping right down the hall, it’s easy to forget that walking through life with our family offers all sorts of joy wrapped up in the seemingly mundane. There’s even a little bit of sacred sitting smack-dab in the middle of the ordinary. And since time’s-a-wastin’, we need to be careful that we don’t take our people—and their stories—for granted. Whether it’s a marathon bacon-frying session, a road trip gone hysterically wrong, or a mother-in-law who makes every trip to the grocery store an adventure, author Sophie Hudson reminds us how important it is to slow down and treasure the day-to-day encounters with the people we love the most. Written in the same witty style as Sophie’s BooMama blog, A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet is a cheerful, funny, and tender account of Sophie’s very Southern family. It’s a look into the real lives of real people—and a real, loving God right in the middle of it all. Home Is Where My People Are All roads lead to home. It’s easy to go through life believing that we can satisfy our longing for home with a three-bedroom, two-bath slice of the American dream that we mortgage at 4 percent and pay for over the course of thirty years. But ultimately, in our deepest places, we’re really looking to belong and to be known. And what we sometimes miss in our search for the perfect spot to set up camp is that wherever we are on the long and winding road of life, God is at work in the journey, teaching us, shaping us, and refining us—sometimes through the most unlikely people and circumstances. In Home Is Where My People Are, Sophie Hudson takes readers on a delightfully quirky journey through the South, introducing them to an unforgettable cast of characters, places, and experiences. Along the way, she reflects on how God has used each of the stops along the road to impart timeless spiritual wisdom and truth. Nobody embodies the South like Sophie Hudson, and this nostalgic celebration of home is sure to make even those north of the Mason-Dixon line long to settle in on the front porch with a glass of sweet tea and reflect on all of the people in our lives who—related or not—have come to represent home. Because at the end of the day, it’s not the address on the front door or even the name on the mailbox that says home, but the people who live and laugh and love there, wherever there might happen to be.

A lawyer with a well-stamped passport and a passion for human rights, Lisa-Jo Baker never wanted to be a mom. And then she had kids. Having lost her own mother to cancer as a teenager, Lisa-Jo felt lost on her journey to womanhood and wholly unprepared to raise children. Surprised by Motherhood is Lisa-Jos story of becoming and being a mom, and in the process, discovering that all the what to expect and how to books in the world can never truly prepare you for the sheer exhilaration, joy, and terrifying love that accompanies motherhood. Set partly in South Africa and partly in the US (with a slight detour to Ukraine along the way), Surprised by Motherhood is a poignant memoir of one womans dawning realization that being a mom isnt about being perfectits about being present.

The story of one East End family, across three generations, living on the fringe of the Thames. Silvertown itself is a ribbon of marshland that sits beside the King George VI dock near Bow Creek. In 1944 Melanie McGrath's grandfather Lenny, bought the Cosy Cafe in Silvertown. From here Lenny, his mistress, his wife and his daughter served egg and chips, liver and bacon, eels and jellied custard to the passing trade from the thriving docks. Business was good. By the late 1940s Lenny was the only Cafe owner in the East End to drive a Cadillac.

The Background to Shakespeare s Sonnets

When, why and to whom were Shakespeare's Sonnets written, and are they abstract works of art or the poet's own reactions to actual situations and events? If the latter, what have they to tell us about Shakespeare the man? Today, scholars remain sharply divided over these questions. In this book the author demonstrates that by carefully setting the Sonnets against the historical and literary background of the period it is possible not merely to suggest convincing answers to all these problems but to date almost every sonnet to within less than six months. With fascinating material, together with a deep and sympathetic understanding of the poetry itself, Mr. Wait restores the vivid pictures which Shakespeare's images were intended to convey, while at the same time building a strong case for his own elucidation of one of the greatest of literary enigmas. -- From publisher's description.

Poetry. "Old lovers, a suckling pig ('shaved baby'), the 'lucky man' whose wife's hair smells of bacon, the person suspended in formaldehyde who remembers Rilke's 'Being here is wonderful,' Tito the Amenian meat cutter who moonlights as a dance instructor, McShane the needle eater, Jean Harlow, the shell mound's residue of the Gulg's ancient citizens; they're all here, and much more: a wonderful gallery, funny and sad and hopeful, no nonsense, and forever interesting. Evelyn Duncan's new collection is the real stuff, and I love it"-- Richard Frost.
