Book Description The stories in this book are from the life of an unusual woman. She is unusual because of the many different kinds of things that have happened to her. After her husband died, she raised her three children in very difficult circumstances in spite of the many setbacks she faced. From the stories from her childhood through her days working for Texas newspapers, she covered everything from macaroni to murder. As a mission interpreter for the National Presbyterian Church U.S.A., she traveled into jungles where there were grass fires and snakes and angry people. She also traveled where there was love and concern and caring people. Some of her life stories are extremely humorous and some are tragic. Her two books, To the Ends of the Earth and A Little Bit Farther, are stories from the many mission areas in various countries around the world. Marj also had a daily column in the Big Spring Herald called "Riding Fence" and now emcees a radio talk show by the same name. Her travels took her into Communist Russia when it was still behind the Iron Curtain and afterward. She also went to North Korea and met the leadership there. Very few people can say that. She went from Brazil to Zimbabwe and from Japan to the Ivory Coast. Marj set up the press conference for Hostage Ben Weir when he came home. And she did the first story of Dr. Kao in Taiwan when he was first released from jail. She admitted that her life had no plan and that she never knew what was coming next. As one of the very earliest women sports writers in Texas, she faced a lot of criticism. Her life took her to meet nine Presidents and many other well known politicians. She admitted that she never had the slightest idea where she was going with the life. "God must have planned it, I didn't," she admitted. Come step into the petunias in the White House Garden with Marj and see where you go from there.

Halloween is a special and exciting time for pumpkins. They play games, light fireworks, and eat lots of candy. But nothing beats trick-or-treating, and Peter Pumpkin is finally getting his chance to leave the pumpkin patch and join the other pumpkins for the festivities. He gets a surprise when his sister, Petrina, tells him that instead of trick-or-treating with the communal group, he’ll be joining her and her friends on the adventure of a lifetime. First, they must get prepared, and a primary order of business is deciding what they’ll wear on their journey. They also need to be safe, because if they meet a witch, ghost or ghoul, they could be turned into pumpkin pies or worse. The pumpkins also know that Wanda--the evil ghoul--might invade the pumpkin patch if she figures out where the pumpkins keep their candy. In fact, if she had her way, she’d exterminate all the pumpkins. Join the pumpkins as they enjoy a rite of passage and navigate an exciting but dangerous Halloween tradition that dates back hundreds and hundreds of years.

Meet the Carters: Mr. and Mrs. Carter, 10-year-old daughter Keisha, five-year-old Razi, baby Paolo, and Grandma Alice. Together, they run Carters' Urban Rescue, the place you call when you've got an animal where it shouldn't be. In their first adventure, there's a baby alligator at the city pool, which will seriously interfere with opening day, especially Keisha's cannonball practice. So it's up to the whole family to figure out what to do with the poor guy who has no business hanging around Michigan. Luckily for all of them, and thanks to some serious ingenuity from Keisha, the answer is closer than they ever could have imagined. Sue Stauffacher turns to her first series effort with Animal Rescue Team. With compelling plots based on actual events in her community, Sue has created a lovable cast of characters of boys and girls, young and old, who feel like people you'd meet at your neighborhood block party. Written in an accessible and engaging style meant to appeal to those independent readers looking to be excited and entertained, and with subplots about friendship, siblings, the environment, and animal conservation, along with plenty of humor, these will be a hit with teachers and librarians, and parents, as well as kids themselves.

They must also be weary of Wanda Witch, who is always plotting ways of getting rid of the pumpkins. If she had her way, she would get rid of all the ghouls, not just the pumpkins. The pumpkins realize she must be stopped. Join Peter and the rest of the pumpkins as they begin an educational journey that will last a lifetime.

But their mischievous younger twin siblings have a talent all their own—for matchmaking . . . Between work and keeping his little brothers out of trouble, Austin Petersheim barely has time to think, much less court the most popular maidel in town.

He’s so grateful for the help of his longtime friend, Hannah Yutzy, who has such practical ideas—and is so easy to talk to . . . While Austin embarks on his plan, his siblings have a plan of their own: to give Austin and Hannah a little nudge to show them they’re made for each other. When their antics wreak havoc with a rival family emporium, Hannah must help Austin set things right. And as she does just that, Austin is stunned to realize his best friend could be his perfect wife. Now he’ll just need the courage and faith to find out if she agrees . . .

WINNER OF THE BARBARA JEFFERIS AWARD 2020 'Atmospheric...evocative...important.' Tom Keneally Kitty Hawke, the last inhabitant of a dying island sinking into the wind-lashed Chesapeake Bay, has resigned herself to annihilation... Until one night her granddaughter blows ashore in the midst of a storm, desperate, begging for sanctuary. For years, Kitty has kept herself to herself - with only the company of her wolfdog, Girl - unconcerned by the world outside, or perhaps avoiding its worst excesses. But blood cannot be turned away in times like these. And when trouble comes following her granddaughter, no one is more surprised than Kitty to find she will fight to save her as fiercely as her name suggests... A richly imagined and mythic parable of home and kin that cements Lucy Treloar's place as one of our most acclaimed novelists.

For Alice Pettiford, living near Gloucester in the late 1940s, leaving school for a job as a railway secretary makes perfect sense. Most of her family have worked for the railway over the years, and her best friend Hester's father would be in the same office. What Alice does not expect is that she would fall in love with Joe Adair, a colleague, almost as soon as she meets him. But Joe has to go overseas on National Service, and in the meanwhile Hester's brother, the enigmatic Valentine, finds that his fondness for Alice is deepening into something much stronger. When he and Alice discover an old railway coach, long abandoned, hidden in a clearing in the Forest of Dean, Alice realises that it has been a very special, magical place. What she doesn't know is that the coach has played a secret part in the history of Joe's family, and that Joe's mother named it 'the pumpkin coach'. Now her own destiny will also be shaped by this enchanted refuge. The Pumpkin Coach, the new novel by bestselling author Susan Sallis, is full of the passion and drama that have won her a huge and devoted readership.
