Description : Brooklyn Prescott couldn’t be happier now that she’s returned to The Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence. She has her friends back, has returned to equestrian training and she’s just about to turn eighteen. If only she didn’t have that Brady complication in her life, everything would be perfect. But not only is that complication still there, Brady’s become even harder to resist after Brooklyn’s time away from him; absence makes the heart grow fonder after all. Plus there’s that birthday gift he gave her that just about melted her heart. At least he’s not her coach while he’s recovering from his injury, so keeping her distance is somewhat easier. That is, until a stolen kiss crushes her resolve. Then Brooklyn’s past meets her present in a heart-stopping moment that threatens to topple her carefully constructed house of cards. Brooklyn’s half-truths all start to come back to haunt her and she realizes that part of being an adult is dealing with consequences, even when that means hearts get broken.

Description : Virtue ethics is now widely recognized as an alternative to Kantian and consequentialist ethical theories. However, moral philosophers have been slow to bring virtue ethics to bear on topics in applied ethics. Moreover, environmental virtue ethics is an underdeveloped area of environmental ethics. Although environmental ethicists often employ virtue-oriented evaluation (such as respect, care, and love for nature) and appeal to role models (such as Henry Thoreau, Aldo Leopold, and Rachel Carson) for guidance, environmental ethics has not been well informed by contemporary work on virtue ethics. With Character and Environment, Ronald Sandler remedies each of these deficiencies by bringing together contemporary work on virtue ethics with contemporary work on environmental ethics. He demonstrates the many ways that any ethic of character can and should be informed by environmental considerations. He also develops a pluralistic virtue-oriented environmental ethic that accommodates the richness and complexity of our relationship with the natural environment and provides effective and nuanced guidance on environmental issues. These projects have implications not only for environmental ethics and virtue ethics but also for moral philosophy more broadly. Ethical theories must be assessed on their theoretical and practical adequacy with respect to all aspects of the human ethical situation: personal, interpersonal, and environmental. To the extent that virtue-oriented ethical theory in general, and Sandler's version of it in particular, provides a superior environmental ethic to other ethical theories, it is to be preferred not just as an environmental ethic but also as an ethical theory. Character and Environment will engage any reader with an interest in environmental ethics, virtue ethics, or moral philosophy.
