As Always, Julia: The Letters of Julia Child and Avis DeVoto

As Always, Julia: The Letters of Julia Child and Avis DeVoto

Joan Reardon

With her outsize personality, Julia Child is known around the world by her first name alone. But despite that familiarity, how much do we really know of the inner Julia?

Now more than 200 letters exchanged between Julia and Avis DeVoto, her friend and unofficial literary agent memorably introduced in the hit movie Julie & Julia, open the window on Julia’s deepest thoughts and feelings. This riveting correspondence, in print for the first time, chronicles the blossoming of a unique and lifelong friendship between the two women and the turbulent process of Julia’s creation of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, one of the most influential cookbooks ever written.
Frank, bawdy, funny, exuberant, and occasionally agonized, these letters show Julia, first as a new bride in Paris, then becoming increasingly worldly and adventuresome as she follows her diplomat husband in his postings to Nice, Germany, and Norway.

With commentary by the noted food historian Joan Reardon, and covering topics as diverse as the lack of good wine in the United States, McCarthyism, and sexual mores, these astonishing letters show America on the verge of political, social, and gastronomic transformation.

The Glasses We Wear: Reflections On Christian Worldview

The Glasses We Wear: Reflections On Christian Worldview

Michael G. Garland

The glasses we wear change everything about us. . .

Did you know that each one of us wears glasses? Even if you have 20/20 vision, you wear worldview glasses, a particular set of lenses through which you view the world and interpret life. For example, how do you see God? Is He loving, relational, cruel, distant, or maybe just imaginary? And how do you see yourself? As a good person who is in control, happy, and living with purpose? Or instead as insignificant, lost, or broken? The answers to these questions have life-changing implications and deserve careful consideration.

The good news is, you can change your glasses. . .

Using concise chapters, reflective poetry, and thoughtful study questions, Michael G. Garland invites you to see the world through a different set of glasses. While exploring the Christian perspective, The Glasses We Wear will challenge you to examine closely the lens through which you see God, the world, and yourself.

Jane Austen and Food

Jane Austen and Food

Maggie Lane

What was the significance of the pyramid of fruit which confronted Elizabeth Bennet at Pemberley? Or of the cold beef eaten by Willoughby on his journey of repentance to see Marianne?

Why is it so appropriate that the scene of Emma’s disgrace should be a picnic, and how do the different styles of housekeeping in Mansfield Park relate to the social issues of the day?

While Jane Austen does not luxuriate in cataloguing meals in the way of Victorian novelists, food in fact plays a vital part in her novels.

Her mainly domestic plots are deeply imbued with the rituals of giving and sharing meals. The attitudes of her characters to eating, to housekeeping and to hospitality are important indicators of their moral worth. This culminates in the artistic triumph of Emma, in which repeated references to food not only contribute to the portrait of her world, but provide an extended metaphor for the interdependence of a community.

In this original, lively and well-researched book, Maggie Lane not only offers a fresh perspective on the novels of Jane Austen, but illuminates a fascinating period of food history, as England stood on the brink of urbanisation, middle-class luxury, and a revolution in the role of women.

Ranging over topics from greed to gender to mealtimes and manners, and drawing on the novels, letters and Austen family papers, she also discusses Jane Austen’s own ambivalent attitude to the provision and enjoyment of food.

‘Jane Austen And Food’ is a brilliant and original study of one of England’s greatest novelists and will fascinate her many fans.

‘This book will enrich our interpretation of Jane Austen’s fiction, for Ms Lane makes us look afresh at the use of food as symbol and metaphor.’ Jane Austen Society Newsletter

Maggie Lane is the author of many books on Jane Austen including ‘Jane Austen’s Family’, ‘Jane Austen’s England’, ‘Jane Austen and Names’, ‘Understanding Austen’ and the forthcoming ‘Growing Older with Jane Austen’. She also lectures and writes for the journals of the Jane Austen Societies of the UK, US and Australia and is Consultant Editor of Regency World magazine.

The Link That Could Not Be Broken

The Link That Could Not Be Broken

C.L. Shaffer

Gavin is a man who has lost his faith in God.

During a periodic meeting with his lifelong friend and religious mentor, Dr. Faulkner Brickley, Gavin confesses that he is no longer a believer. Alarmed that his friend has lost the capacity to see that life can be extraordinary, the professor decides it’s time to reveal a secret. “We can either choose to use our talents or not to use them,” he tells Gavin before dramatically demonstrating to him that God has granted him with an amazing gift.

Meanwhile, Gavin runs into his old flame at a funeral. He brought Elizabeth Kashner into the faith, all those years ago. But in his state of grief following the death of his father, he had told Elizabeth he no longer wanted her in his life. Although their chance meeting stirs up old feelings, nothing much comes of it—until Elizabeth goes on a missionary trip to the Russian republic of Ingushetia.

When Elizabeth ends up being held hostage, Gavin offers to use his newfound talent to win her freedom. In the meantime, Elizabeth’s own plan of escape is to create a bond with one of her captors.

As a result of their adventures, lives are changed—in very surprising ways. And Gavin sees that life can be extraordinary. But is this enough to shake his disbelief?

Blue Hole Back Home: A Novel

Blue Hole Back Home: A Novel

Joy Jordan-Lake

“Sacred’s not a word I’ve ever much liked. But maybe some things, and some places, just are. And maybe the Blue Hole was one of those things.”

Shelby (nicknamed Turtle) never had any female friends. But when a mysterious girl from Sri Lanka moved to town in the summer of 1979, Turtle invites her to a secret haven: the Blue Hole. Turtle has no idea now much that simple gesture will affect the rest of her life, or the lives of those she loves.

In a time when America was technically well beyond the Civil Rights era, there were those in Turtle’s small Appalachian town who rejected the presence of someone different. And in just one summer—in a collision of love, hate, jealousy, beauty, and a sacred, muddy swimming hole—nothing and everything changed.
