My Mother Talks to Trees

by Doris Gove

Laura is walking home from school with her mother. Much to Laura's dismay, her mom insists on stopping at trees along the way and speaking to them as if they were her friends. First Laura hopes no one will notice. Then she stands close to the trees, hoping passersby will think her mother is talking to her. As her mother greets each tree, mentioning its unique features, Laura grudgingly begins to take note, and slowly her curiosity overcomes her embarrassment. By the time they're almost home, Laura has made the acquaintance of many special trees in her neighborhood and has come to recognize each one's distinctive features. In the end, she has been infected by her mother's contagious enthusiasm for nature and she begins to develop her own relationship to the natural world. Doris Gove's charming tale will inspire budding young naturalists to get to know the trees in their own neighborhoods. General, easy-to-remember information in the story teaches children how to identify eleven common trees, including the dogwood, tulip poplar, maple and pine. A glossary at the back of the book provides more details.

My Mother's Keeper: A Daughter's Memoir of Growing Up in the Shadow of Schizophrenia

by Tara Elgin Holley Joe Holley

Dawn Elgin was destined to be a 1940s big-band star. From the time she was fourteen, she took her place at the microphone in Houston's elite Empire Room and sang with the voice of a jazz angel. Vibrant and glamorous, she boldly pursued her love of performing to New Orleans, Hollywood, and New York, where she gave birth to her daughter, Tara, when she was twenty-one. Then Dawn began to suffer persistent visions of a deathly specter at her bedside. She was diagnosed with acute paranoid schizophrenia and began a lifetime spent in and out of institutions. My Mother's Keeper is Tara's deeply moving story of growing up in the shadow of her mother's tragic illness. As Dawn's state worsened, Tara lived in the care of her imperious great-great-aunt Elsa - the family's elderly matriarch, who drew her into a rich world of old-fashioned treasures and Houston history - while her mother drifted in and out of Tara's life like a fading fairy princess. Though Tara yearned for her mother during her childhood, Dawn's condition was usually kept from her, the subject of secretive family discussion and neighborhood gossip. By the time Tara was seventeen she had become Dawn's guardian, bent on rescuing the shambling street person her mother had become and transforming her back into the beautiful, lively woman she remembered. Above all, it is a deeply moving exploration of the mother-daughter bond - of how Tara learned to balance her mother's needs with her own, and how she finally came to terms with Dawn's legacy when she became a mother herself. Emotionally compelling and powerfully rendered, My Mother's Keeper offers indelible proof of love's power to transcend a devastating illness.

My Mysterious Son

by Dick Russell

What does a father do when hope is gone that his only son can ever lead anything close to a "normal" life? That's the question that haunted Dick Russell in the fall of 2011, when his son, Franklin, was thirty-two. At the age of seventeen, Franklin had been diagnosed with schizophrenia. For years he spent time in and out of various hospitals, and even went through periods of adamantly denying that Dick was actually his father.A mixed-race child, Franklin was handsome, intelligent, and sensitive until his mental illness suddenly took control. After spending the ensuing years trying to build some semblance of a normal father-son relationship, Dick was invited with his son, out of the blue, to witness the annual wildlife migration on Africa's Serengeti Plain. Seizing this potential opportunity to repair the damage that both had struggled with, after going through two perilous nights together in Tanzania, ultimately the two-week trip changed both of their lives.Desperately seeking an alternative to the medical model's medication regimen, the author introduces Franklin to a West African shaman in Jamaica. Dick discovers Franklin's psychic capabilities behind the seemingly delusional thought patterns, as well as his artistic talents. Theirs becomes an ancestral quest, the journey finally taking them to the sacred lands of New Mexico and an indigenous healer. For those who understand the pain of mental illness as well the bond between a parent and a child, My Mysterious Son shares the intimate and beautiful story of a father who will do everything in his power to repair his relationship with a young man damaged by mental illness.

My Name Is Jody Williams: A Vermont Girl′s Winding Path to the Nobel Peace Prize

by Eve Ensler Jody Williams

As Eve Ensler says in her inspired foreword to this book, "Jody Williams is many things--a simple girl from Vermont, a sister of a disabled brother, a loving wife, an intense character full of fury and mischief, a great strategist, an excellent organizer, a brave and relentless advocate, and a Nobel Peace Prize winner. But to me Jody Williams is, first and foremost, an activist." From her modest beginnings to becoming the tenth woman--and third American woman--to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, Jody Williams takes the reader through the ups and downs of her tumultuous and remarkable life. In a voice that is at once candid, straightforward, and intimate, Williams describes her Catholic roots, her first step on a long road to standing up to bullies with the defense of her deaf brother Stephen, her transformation from good girl to college hippie at the University of Vermont, and her protest of the war in Vietnam. She relates how, in 1981, she began her lifelong dedication to global activism as she battled to stop the U.S.-backed war in El Salvador. Throughout the memoir, Williams underlines her belief that an "average woman"--through perseverance, courage and imagination--can make something extraordinary happen. She tells how, when asked if she'd start a campaign to ban and clear anti-personnel mines, she took up the challenge, and the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) was born. Her engrossing account of the genesis and evolution of the campaign, culminating in 1997 with the Nobel Peace Prize, vividly demonstrates how one woman's commitment to freedom, self-determination, and human rights can have a profound impact on people all over the globe.

My Notorious Life

by Kate Manning

This sweeping, evocative, and absolutely unforgettable novel about the charismatic and passionate Axie Muldoon who changed the lives of countless women was inspired by a real midwife who became one of the most controversial figures in Victorian New York City.Set in gritty New York City in the last half of the nineteenth century, My Notorious Life is a vibrant portrait of Axie Muldoon, a plucky orphan who becomes one of the most successful--and controversial--midwives of her time. Told in a magnetic voice, pulsing and vivid, Axie recounts how she is separated from her mother and siblings, apprenticed to a doctor and midwife, and how she later parlays the sale of a few bottles of "lunar tonic for female complaints" into a thriving midwifery practice with her husband and fellow orphan friend, Charles G. Jones. But Axie is on a collision course with one of the most zealous, censorious characters of her era: Anthony Comstock, founder of the Society for the Suppression of Vice, and it will take all of Axie's power to outwit him and save both herself and her family from ruin. A love story, a family saga, and a brilliant rendering of a historical time, this is also a moving and nuanced commentary on an important topic: women's control of their bodies. But ultimately, it is the story of one woman making her indomitable way in a difficult world; with her fierce and vibrant spirit, Axie Muldoon is an indelible heroine for the ages.

My Olympic Dream

by Katie Taylor

Ireland's Katie Taylor blew into London 2012 like a summer wind to claim the first lightweight Olympic gold medal in women's boxing when she beat Russia's Sofya Ochigava in the final at the Excel Arena in August. One of the original campaigners to have women included in the Olympic boxing schedule, Taylor, along with her father and coach, Pete, has won everything the sport has to offer. Her triumph was a historical first in her weight division and fittingly book-ended what has been a stellar career to date. The counterpoint of Taylor's grace and poise outside the ring and her wrecking-ball ability inside the ropes has drawn global attention and has placed her in the position of being the poster girl for the sport. In My Olympic Dream, she explains what it was that encouraged her to take up the sport in the first place and reveals her delight at finally being able to box in the world's biggest sporting occasion. She tells of her enormous pride at being chosen to be Ireland's flag-bearer in the opening ceremony, and of her emotions as she closed in on gold. With fascinating insights into life behind the scenes as she prepared for the Olympics and during the Games themselves, accompanied by many brilliant photographs throughout, Taylor's own story is as remarkable, honest and inspirational as the woman herself. A nation celebrated with her when she won gold, now in this book she shares that experience with all those who cheered her on. Katie Taylor was born in 1986 and is a native of Bray, County Wicklow. A sporting all-rounder, she has won 15 caps for Ireland at football. But it is in boxing that she has recorded her greatest sporting achievements. She has won five consecutive European Championship titles, four consecutive World Championship titles and has twice been voted the best female boxer on the planet by the governing body of the sport, the AIBA. Sky Sports chose her to be one of the faces of their coverage of the Games.
