It's 1968, and like any other junior in high school, Sam Barger’s just trying to get by in classes and find a part-time job at the local pizza parlor, maybe chat up the pretty girl who also works there. But when his Marine Corps brother Joe comes back from the Vietnam War, life at home changes. By day Joe struggles with alcoholism and by night he battles night terrors. Sam just wants normalcy again but doesn’t know how to close the rift between the brothers, especially once he questions their country’s involvement overseas. Set in Southcentral Alaska in the 1960s, Back Home is a heartfelt story about the brothers and their struggles to come and understand each other. The book reveals the lasting effects of war on young people and draws parallels between a pivotal moment in history then to the contemporary wars and struggles today.

Description: This novel is about a young Zimbabwean woman or girl, who, together with her sister, becomes refugee in South Africa just four years before the start of 2010 Soccer World Cup. Her familys background, from as early as 1958 when his father was born, is making a huge influence in her life and the way she relates to her sister. Because of the sad and difficult upbringing of both her parents, she takes a vow to protect her sister with her own life if need be. Her sister, who is not only multitalented, fine, young, and amazing person with a personality close that of an angel but an albino as well, is the only thing she is prepared to live and die for. After convincing her father to allow her to come to South Africa with her little sister with the intention of saving her little sister from the bound marriage in which four other women were already involved, like many people in the neighbouring countries of South Africa, they cannot find what they expect from a country, which is blessed with an opportunity to host the most prestigious tournament on earth. Ultimately, instead of protecting her sister, she, unfortunately, turns to have a hand in her sisters death. After burying her sister without the knowledge of her parents in Zimbabwe, she decides to hide herself in South Africa from her parents, her fianc, and goes to look for the love of her life while she is three months pregnant. With the help of her lost love who could not bear her children because of the injury he sustained during circumcision, she returns home, together with her newborn twins, to Zimbabwe to reconcile with her parents and to ask for their forgiveness.

Description: If you have never been inside of a prison, there are things you will not know about the community there. You may guess at them, but that is not the same. What it feels like. What it sounds like. What goes on there; these all define portions of what it is. These definitions, or parameters of life inside, come to you quite viscerally. You feel them in and through your skin before you actually give word or shape to understanding them. You sense before you think. The themes that come from a prison poet are varied. Most poems you would not have to know the poet was a prisoner to gain access to the import of the word-pictures. Human experience, while diverse, shares some common archetypal qualities. But, some will grow in meaning knowing where the poems were planted. I think themes about being captive are universal, but when you know the poet is in a prison, it can open you to listen differently. Is that a good thing? I don’t know. But it is true.

Description: A collection of heartrending oral histories that topples assumptions about the people who served in Vietnam The Vietnam War was a defining event for a generation of Americans. But for years, misguided and sometimes demeaning clichés about its veterans have proliferated widely. Philip F. Napoli's Bringing It All Back Home strips away the myths and reveals the complex individuals who served in Southeast Asia. Napoli was one of the chief researchers for Tom Brokaw's The Greatest Generation, and in the spirit of that enterprise, his oral histories recast our understanding of a war and its legacy. Napoli introduces a remarkable group of young New Yorkers who went abroad with high hopes only to find a bewildering conflict. We meet a nurse who staged a hunger strike to promote peace while working at a field hospital; a paratrooper whose experiences on the battlefield left him with emotional scars that led to violence and homelessness; a black soldier who achieved an unexpected camaraderie with his fellow servicemen in racially tense times; and a university administrator who helped to create New York City's Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Some of Napoli's soldiers became active opponents of the war; others did not. But all returned with a powerful urge to understand the death and destruction they had seen. Overcoming adversity, a great many would go on to lead ambitious lives of public service. Tracing their journeys from the streets of Brooklyn and Queens to the banks of the Mekong, and back to the most glamorous corporations and meanest homeless shelters of New York City, Napoli reveals the variety and surprising vibrancy of the ex-soldiers' experiences. "For almost everyone the time in Vietnam was the most exciting and the most alive time of your life," one veteran recalls. He adds: "I still have this little trick . . . When I lie down and go to sleep, if there's something bothering me, I say, ‘You're warm, you're dry, and there is no one shooting at you.'"

Description: Come Back Home is a gripping tale about two young people who become engulfed in the toil of World War II. Walter Wilson meets Abby Walker during the summer of 1943. They fall in love, but there are two huge obstacles that could shatter their romance. First, Abby comes from an upper-class family, whereas Walter is born into the middle class.

Abby’s father will do what he can to ensure the relationship ceases to exist. Second, the United States has been dragged to war in Europe and the Pacific. Walter is young, patriotic, and naive and wants to fight for his country. This drive to fight overseas certainly has the chance to destroy the love between Abby Walker and Walter Wilson. Timing and circumstances couldn’t be worse for Abby and Walter. World War II has wrecked the lives of many people. This is a story about two young people and how they navigate their love for each other during one of the most trying times in history.

Description: 'I had not lived in the former pit village of Lynemouth since 1961 but the winding road north from Newcastle will always be the same nostalgic highway, each twist charged with vivid memories and powerful emotions...' So begins a story full of wonderful humour, emotional candour and hardy tales of tough times - a quietly epic family saga set amid the pit villages of the North East . It stretches from the 1920s, before Sid's parents had even met, to the final closing of the mine and his mother's death in 1999. Sid paints a picture of a colourful, tight knit community full of good times and hard work, god-fearing women and hard-drinking men. Always dominating the skyline is Auld Betty, the pit head that took the men away each day and, with a prayer, brought them back each evening. Amongst the unforgettable cast of his extended family and friends, we follow the Waddells' attempts to stay afloat and provide a better future and possible escape for youngsters like Sid.

Description: From New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of the “intriguing…delightful…heartwarming” (RT Book Reviews) Garden of Secrets, an emotional romance about a Marine returning to his California town and the woman he never forgot. After his best friend Rob was killed in action during their final days of service, ex-Marine Gabe Ryder knows he must fulfill his last request by helping his struggling family, particularly his sister Alicia. Gabe has a hidden past with Alicia, however—she’s the woman who taught him that love might exist, but he walked away from her. Alicia has more than enough on her plate with her brother’s death, her father’s injury from a tragic accident, the entire town turning against them, and a series of dangerous attacks on her business. She doesn’t need the rugged loner who broke her heart. But passion flares between them, and this time, they can’t ignore it. Alicia can’t help wondering: did Rob really send Gabe to watch over her—or did he want her to show Gabe the way home?
