Description : The book is a blend of emotional challenges and travel journeys of the author around the Indian country. One can learn many unique things about different yet common places, about their history and culture apart from all that everybody knows. As the voyage starts, the author finds herself being a coward who couldn't even speak for herself but through the journey realises the courage and the strength that she had within herself. She didn't have much social circle initially but as the time passes she discovers many mates who were like her and created a bond with them. She realises the true meaning of enjoying life. She had a relationship that was no more than an embarrassment to her and because of which she even tried to commit suicide during the journey but later realised that her life was far more precious than a relationship. The book is like a train ride, where you can have a glimpse of outside view along with a toast of emotions.

Description : This time the young, black boy who was gunned down by police wasn't a stranger; someone far away. He was almost family to Daniela Joseph. As the middle child of what her friends call the "Joseph Empire," Dani enjoys the perks of being well-known and affluent. She soon realizes that the horrors of the 1960s civil rights era might not lie as far back in the past as she thought. As the comfortable and secure world Daniela knew crumbles around her, she embarks on a civil rights pilgrimage and discovers there's so much more to the stories she was told as a child. And if the stories everyone tells of Dr. King and Rosa Parks aren't complete, she wonders what else she doesn't know. Now she has to answer a few questions: Who is she? What is she fighting for? How will she fight?
Description : Diana Gabaldon’s brilliant storytelling has captivated millions of readers in her bestselling and award-winning Outlander saga. In An Echo in the Bone, the seventh volume, Gabaldon continues the extraordinary story of the eighteenth-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his twentieth-century time-traveling wife, Claire Randall. Jamie Fraser, former Jacobite and reluctant rebel, is already certain of three things about the American rebellion: The Americans will win, fighting on the side of victory is no guarantee of survival, and he’d rather die than have to face his illegitimate son—a young lieutenant in the British army—across the barrel of a gun. Claire Randall knows that the Americans will win, too, but not what the ultimate price may be. That price won’t include Jamie’s life or his happiness, though—not if she has anything to say about it. Meanwhile, in the relative safety of the twentieth century, Jamie and Claire’s daughter, Brianna, and her husband, Roger MacKenzie, have resettled in a historic Scottish home where, across a chasm of two centuries, the unfolding drama of Brianna’s parents’ story comes to life through Claire’s letters. The fragile pages reveal Claire’s love for battle-scarred Jamie Fraser and their flight from North Carolina to the high seas, where they encounter privateers and ocean battles—as Brianna and Roger search for clues not only to Claire’s fate but to their own. Because the future of the MacKenzie family in the Highlands is mysteriously, irrevocably, and intimately entwined with life and death in war-torn colonial America. With stunning cameos of historical characters from Benedict Arnold to Benjamin Franklin, An Echo in the Bone is a soaring masterpiece of imagination, insight, character, and adventure—a novel that echoes in the mind long after the last page is turned. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Diana Gabaldon's Written in My Own Heart's Blood.
