As three generations of women navigate the uncertain paths of their hearts and futures, one summer promises to bring change—whether they’re ready for it or not. At thirty-eight, garden shop owner Jessie McBride thinks her chances for romance are years behind her and, after her failed marriage, she’s fine with that. She lives contentedly with her fiery mother and her quiet, headstrong daughter. But the unexpected arrival of two men on Glory Road make her question if she’s really happy with the status quo. Handsome, wealthy Sumner Tate asks her to arrange flowers for his daughter’s wedding, and Jessie finds herself drawn to his continued attention. Ben Bradley, her lingering what-could-have-been from her high school days who’s known her better than anyone and whom she hasn’t seen in years, moves back to the red dirt road. Jessie finds her heart being pulled in directions she never expected. Meanwhile, Jessie’s fourteen-year-old daughter, Evan, is approaching the start of high school and trying to navigate a new world of identity and emotions—particularly as they relate to the cute new guy who’s moved in just down the road.

Children of the Valley Book Excerpt:

A fast-paced, sharply observed novel of rural suspense. Sheriff Lucian Wing goes to the aid of a pair of young runaways, Duncan and Pamela, who have fled to his backwoods county jurisdiction in Vermont. The girl’s powerful stepfather New York has set a smoothly menacing lawyer and well-armed thugs on their trail. At the same time Wing must deal with his wayward wife’s chronic infidelity; the snobbery of Pamela’s cosmopolitan mother; the dubious assistance of a demented World War Two enthusiast – and even the climactic, chaotic onset of a prodigious specimen of the local wildlife. Amidst it all, can Wing bring Duncan and Pamela to safety? Praise for Castle Freeman's novels: ‘A small miracle – sharp, sly, moving and full of heart.' Nick Cave ‘Part comic romp and part nail-biting thriller ... Castle Freeman writes with both wit and a deep understanding of the human psyche, and he does not cheat us out of a dramatic climax.’ Guardian ‘Shares many small-town, big-crime themes with Cormac McCarthy... it is impossible not to appreciate this.’ The Times 'Wonderful... every paragraph a gem. Freeman – like Cormac McCarthy, like Annie Proulx – shows us the awkward realness of lives, and does it with humour, with wry perception, with great style.' R. J. Ellory ‘Extremely funny... streamlined storytelling, dead-on dialogue and lyrical descriptions of the bleak, woodsy landscape. This is a meticulous New England miniature, with not a word wasted.’ Oprah Magazine ‘A fast, memorable read gooey with atmosphere ... a gem that sparkles with sly insight and cuts like a knife.’ Boston Globe ‘Freeman has a flawless ear for dialogue and a sharp eye for quirky detail ... Superb.’ People Magazine ‘A brilliant book – laconic, spare, stylish and exciting.’ Al Alvarez ‘A small masterpiece of black comedy and suspense ... If all novels were this good, Americans would read more.’ Kirkus Reviews

As if recovering from a raucous dream of the 1960s, Gerry Beckley, Dewey Bunnell, and Dan Peek arrived on 1970s American radio with a sound that echoed disenchanted hearts of young people everywhere. The three American boys had named their band after a country they’d watched and dreamt of from their London childhood Air Force base homes. What was this country? This new band?

As America’s music stays in rhythm with the heartbeats of its millions of fans, new fans feel the draw of a familiar emotion.

Mediatized Dramaturgy Book Excerpt:

This study explores the ways in which playtexts have evolved in relation to the sociocultural and cognitive conditions of a mediatized age, and how they, in form and content, respond to this environment and open up new critical possibilities in text and performance. The study combines theatre and media theory through the innovative concept of 'mediatized dramaturgy' and offers conceptual reflections on the ways in which a playtext negotiates the new reality of contemporary culture. The book scrutinizes the form of playtexts and works through the exchange between text and performance by exploring contemporary works such as Simon Stephens's Pornography, Caryl Churchill's Love and Information, and David Greig's The Yes/No Plays, and their selected productions. Offering a pioneering intervention that expands discussions about the mediatization of theatre, and new playwriting, Mediatized Dramaturgyproposes areas for discussion that appeal to researchers, audiences and practitioners with an interest in the sub-field of media and performance, and British and North American drama and theatre. Media technologies and their socio-cultural repercussions have increasingly influenced theatre, particularly since the ubiquitous prevalence of digital technologies from the 1990s onwards. Consequently, new modes such as digital and intermedial theatre have come to populate and transform the theatre practice and scholarship. In this changing theatrical landscape, what has happened to plays in the historically text-oriented British theatre? How has playtext changed in an age of theatre marked by mediatization and its possibilities?

For All Americans Book Excerpt:

Bart Stupak, a nine-term Democratic Congressman from Michigan's First District, brought two unshakable principles with him to Capitol Hill in 1992: a firm belief in the sanctity of life, and the conviction that health care was a right for all Americans and not a privilege for the fortunate few. Studies indicating that 45,000 Americans died needlessly every year for lack of access to health care inspired Congressman Stupak's tireless efforts, often at great personal cost, to pass lifesaving legislation while remaining true to his right-to-life principles. This book is a fascinating front-row seat to the inner workings and behind-the-scenes dealmaking in the US House of Representatives, and a first-person account of the collaboration between President Obama and Bart Stupak's small but dedicated team of legislators to achieve the historic passage of the Affordable Care Act for all Americans.

Joseph Holbrook Mormon Pioneer a Journal Book Excerpt:

Samuel Lewis, the youngest of seven children born to African American working class parents, and Hamilton Armstrong III, the only son of a wealthy white family and local leader of the Ku Klux Klan, grew up in the same small Virginia town, but lived worlds apart. They meet through mischief and despite the racial barriers of the pre-Civil Rights era, a life-long friendship is formed. Both driven by a passion for writing, they begin journalism careers at different New York newspapers, experience dangerous, as well as raunchy times in Vietnam and enter the sunset years of their careers at the same Atlanta newspaper where they are dueling political columnists: Sam pens the conservative viewpoint and Ham provides the liberal perspective. Unexpected excitement enters their lives as a bomb meant for Sam kills a colleague in the midst of their coverage of Barack Obamas rise to the presidency. Brothers under the same skin, Same Same sketches the lives of two talented journalists, one white, one black, in a novel that is part thriller and part morality tale. Doug Smith, a ground breaking reporter, undoubtedly lived the themes echoed in this book and he skillfully weaves a tale with a message that is both timely and timeless. -Eleanor Clift, Newsweek and Daily Beast contributor and panelist with The McLaughlin Group Doug Smith has written a fetching race-drama that flips the script on group assumption about life, love and politics. There is energy here, start to finish; and the tension puts the reader on his toes, then back on his heels. The author is quite savvy about the newspaper industry, mindful of its decline and guarded about newspapers way forward. But it is race politics in America, glancing off White House politics, where the novel takes on currency and makes itself a worthy book for our time. -Les Payne, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author People say newspapers are dying. Well, Doug Smiths new rollercoaster novel certainly sends them out with a bang. Murder, sex, race, politics, scandal--all set in the newsroom. I love it! -Tony Kornheiser, co-anchor of ESPNs Pardon the Interruption
