Half-harpy, half-goblin, Gloria is the star of Anthony's latest romp through Xanth. Being the only one of her crossbred species and at an age when the opposite sex holds some attraction, Gloria appeals to Good Magician Humphry for help in finding a mate. Of course, nothing is straightforward or easy in Xanth. First Gloria must master three challenges just to see the magician; then she has to find Humphry's second son, who will start her on her quest. Accompanied by a rejuvenated Magician Trent and Cynthia, the flying centaur, Gloria treks through the underworld and across Xanth. Along the way, the trio outwits (and out-puns) dragons, goblins, mermaids, and the like and greets old friends, including Com Pewter and Marrow Bones. Gloria is successful, but the plot is once again incidental to the ruthless punning and outright fun. After all, in Xanth, as in life, it's the journey that's important, not the destination.
It is 1887, and Henry Ward Beecher lies dying. Reporters from around the world, eager for one last story about the most lurid scandal of their time, descend on Brooklyn Heights, their presence signaling the beginning of the voracious appetite for fallen celebrities we know so well today. When Henry Ward Beecher was put on trial for adultery in 1875, the question of his guilt or innocence was ferociously debated. His trial not only split the country, it split apart his family, causing a particularly bitter rift between his sisters, Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom's Cabin, and Isabella Beecher Hooker, an ardent suffragist. Harriet remained loyal to Henry, while Isabella called publicly for him to admit his guilt. What had been a loving, close relationship between two sisters plummeted into bitter blame and hurt. Harriet and Isabella each had a major role in the social revolutions unfolding around them, but what happened in their hearts when they were forced to face a question of justice much closer to home? Now they struggle: who best served Henry -- the one who was steadfast or the one who demanded honesty?
Harriet Beecher Stowe, a housewife with six children, opposed slavery with a passion. In 1852 her novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin, was published and Harriet became an instant celebrity.

This book is a biography of the Negro woman who escaped from slavery and became a well known figure in the underground railroad as she personally conducted scores of slaves north to freedom.
If you are tired, keep going; if you are scared, keep going, if you are hungry, keep going; if you want to taste freedom, keep going. These are the words of Harriet Tubman, called the "Moses of her people" for leading slaves northward to freedom. After successfully escaping when only in her twenties, she put herself in danger again and again in order to help other slaves achieve liberty. And when the Civil War began, this freedom fighter not only spied for the Union, but became the first American woman to plan and direct a battle. Her compelling story is beautifully told here, along with a rich store of information about slave life, the Underground Railroad, and famous abolitionists.
This memorable biography is about Harriet Tubman, a former slave who led a heroic struggle more bravely and more successfully than any other to liberate African-Americans from slavery.
Examines the life of the person who helped many people escape through the Underground Railroad during the Civil War.

Abiah's Heart Waged A Battle Of Its OwnAbiah Calder had always loved Thomas Harrigan. Always. But the war had contrived to make them enemies. Now that same war had bound them as man and wife. Yet did Thomas' heart's desire truly match her own?When Thomas Harrigan found Abby dying in an abandoned house, he risked everything to see her safe. No matter that he was a Yankee captain and she a loyal Rebel. She was all that had been good and true in his life-and he would claim her as his own; and damn the consequences.
A young boy spends his tenth summer on his aunt and uncle's farm, where he is constantly involved in crazy escapades with his cousin Harris.

All this adds up to a hearty helping of old-fashioned, rip-roaring entertainment."--Publishers Weekly
When his mother goes to the cellar and doesn't return right away, Harry goes down to search for her and confronts the terrible two-headed Whatzit.
Retired Chicago cop, Harry Bentley, was lying low. He'd blown the whistle on a gang of rogue cops and was awaiting the day when Internal Affairs would call him to testify and help put their leader, Lieutenant Matty Fagan, behind bars. His cover was working as a doorman in a luxury highrise on Chicago's lakefront. Then Gabby Fairbanks and her husband moved into the building's penthouse. She brought home a bag lady, got a job at the Manna House Women's Shelter, found her life falling apart, and managed to entangle Harry in the whole affair. (Gabby's story is in Neta Jackson's parallel novel, WHERE DO I GO?) But there was an upside. Through Gabby, Harry meets the Yada Yada brothers and the classy Estelle Williams and envisions a second chance at romance. The Yada Yada brothers provide a new circle of friends to replace his old CPD cohorts. But when Harry discovers he has a grandson he didn't know about, will he find the faith to take on the boy as a "second chance" to be the father he'd failed to be to his own son-even when the boy creates new dangers in Harry's fight against corruption, and may derail his "second chance" at love? To be a father like God, to have God as his father . . . Perhaps he was being given a second chance at both.
