A dual British-American national on her first return trip to England in over a decade, Jane Satterfield faced a woman's fundamental decision: to become a mother or to forge a new life on her own. That the decision was not so simple was only the first of many revelations. Satterfield casts a loving yet skeptical glance on the world of mid-`90s Britain as well as the cultural and literary legacy that continues to haunt, shape, and challenge her. In a voice by turns tender, insightful, and funny, Satterfield brings to life a provocative personal history through fascinating detours into music, popular culture, and literary mothers such as the Brontës, Sylvia Plath, and Angela Carter. --Amazon.com.

This long overdue biography elevates Jane Matilda Bolin to her rightful place in American history as an activist, integrationist, jurist, and outspoken public figure in the political and professional milieu of New York City before the onset of the modern Civil Rights movement. When Bolin was appointed to New York City's domestic relations court in 1939 for the first of four ten-year terms, she became the nation's first African American woman judge. Drawing on archival materials as well as a meeting with Bolin in 2002, historian Jacqueline A. McLeod reveals how Bolin parlayed her judicial position to impact significant reforms of the legal and social service system in New York. Beginning with Bolin's childhood and educational experiences at Wellesley and Yale, Daughter of the Empire State chronicles Bolin's relatively quick rise through the ranks of a profession that routinely excluded both women and African Americans. McLeod links Bolin's activist leanings and integrationist zeal to her involvement in the NAACP and details her work as a critic and reformer of domestic relations courts and juvenile placement facilities.

[BookStrand Historical Romantic Suspense, HEA] Against all reason, the Contessa of Silviatti is in love with her husband, a charismatic Italian nobleman who makes a game of bedding other women. While spying on the count, a public horror encroaches upon her private nightmare: Adolf Hitler. Traveling in the same circles as Hitler, Mussolini, and Franco, Sophia puts her newly found spying abilities to work for the Allied cause and enters a career of espionage as a double agent, taking on the code name of Strega (Witch). The Viscount of Saint-Cloud paints portraits of the aristocracy and is the disappointment of his conservative British political family. No one suspects that Saint-Cloud is the anti-Nazi underground political cartoonist The Shadow Knight—or that he is a spy. The Shadow Knight showcases the Contessa of Silviatti, believed to be a Fascist, in his cartoons. To her horror, the war effort is threatened as she is cast into the limelight, compromising her cover, her position as an insider in the Third Reich, and her family’s safety. She has no choice but to kill him. ** A BookStrand Mainstream Romance

This provocative study explores issues of gender in Tang-dynasty literature and culture, and their meaning for society as a whole. Drawing on a comprehensive range of historical, literary, and social texts, Jowen R. Tung unravels the complex mechanisms of one of the world's oldest patriarchal systems. With remarkable depth and originality of analysis, the author persuasively applies contemporary feminist theory to Tang dynasty poetry, narrative, and anecdotal literature. Interpreting both well-known and obscure works in fresh ways, Tung sheds light on areas long left shadowed or ignored. In the process, she paints a far darker picture of a period traditionally known as the 'golden age.'
