Impoverished Southern belle Joelle Daughtry has a secret. By day she has been helping her sisters in their quest to turn the run-down family plantation into a resort hotel after the close of the Civil War. But by night and under a male pseudonym, she has been penning articles for the local paper in support of the construction of a Negro school. With the Mississippi arm of the Ku Klux Klan gaining power and prestige, Joelle knows she is playing a dangerous game. When childhood enemy and current investor in the Daughtry house renovation Schuyler Beaumont takes over his assassinated father's candidacy for state office, Joelle finds that in order to protect her family and her home, she and Schuyler will have to put aside their longstanding personal conflict and develop a united public front. The trouble is, what do you do when animosity becomes respect--and even love--if you're already engaged to someone else?

Gypsies and the British Imagination 1807 1930

Deborah Epstein Nord traces the nearly ubiquitous British preoccupation with Gypsies in imaginative works by John Clare, Walter Scott, William Wordsworth, George Eliot, Arthur Conan Doyle, and D. H. Lawrence. She also exhumes lesser-known literary, ethnographic, and historical texts, exploring the fascinating histories of the nomadic writer George Borrow, the Gypsy Lore Society, Dora Yates, and other rarely examined figures and institutions. These textual representations are characterized by a tension between Gypsies as an alien, often despised "race" and the psychic or aesthetic desire to dissolve the boundary between English and Gypsy worlds. Nord suggests that, by the beginning of the twentieth century, romantic identification with Gypsies hardened into caricature and served to obscure the realities of Gypsy life and history. This phenomenon is reflected most famously in The Virgin and the Gipsy, in which D. H. Lawrence both exploits and criticizes the myth of Gypsies' unfettered sensuality, closeness to nature, and opposition to the oppressive strictures of modern life.

Three new modern comedies have been published in the book Three Plays: "The Little Greenie", "Hellcat Kate", "Come in Hypno". All three comedies have been successfully produced for short runs at a theater on Long Island, and are suitable for all audiences. Subject matter treated by the three plays varies widely, from the problems of a butler who's been cut out of a will and seeks satisfaction, to the romantic perils of life in New York City, to the complications that arise when computers start to talk and listen to people. The butler of "The Little Greenie" tires to solve his de-willed problem by enticing a young law student into marrying the daughter of the rich family he works for. An agreement is signed whereby the butler is to get 10% of whatever the student latches onto. The girl's mother becomes suspicious and brings in the family lawyer, and together they engage a private detective. Meanwhile the maid of the house is trying to get the butler to marry her, while the boyfriend of the girl thinks he can buy off this latest fortune hunter with a few hundred dollars. This play has been made into a video/movie and is available in VHS or DVD from www.customflix.com or order from the author at www.thelittlegreenie.com. In "Hellcat Kate" an unemployed engineer has to cope with a live-in girlfriend who is a travel agent and goes on a short trip to Brazil with a customer who appears to be excessively amorous. The girl's mother, Hellcat Kate, does not get along well with the engineer and decides that her daughter should marry the man she goes to Brazil with, even if he is married at the moment. Kate works to get the engineer and an old girlfriend of his together again when she learns that she is the wife of the man she wants her daughter to marry. When this attempt fails, Kate even tries to seduce the engineer. "Come In, Hypno" explores the world of computer programs that understand (in a crude way) what people say, and can talk back to them. Students at a modern college are writing so many talk-and-listen programs that the professor in charge, Ms. Ardis McPherson, is driven to distraction and would love to get rid of some of the hackers. When a student has a fainting spell, he is misdiagnosed by a pre-med student as being dead, and some students are willing to believe that Professor McPherson actually murdered him. One of the programs, Hypno, has been designed to hypnotize people, especially girls. Another program, Feeder, runs to college's food and nutrition program, buying food and watching out for various student allergies. Things can go wrong in a situation of this kind - and they do.
