  • A House Divided

    Buck_HOUSE_DIV_bowA House Divided, the third volume of the trilogy that began with The Good Earth and Sons, is a powerful portrayal of China in the midst of revolution. Wang Yuan is caught between the opposing ideas of different generations. After 6 years abroad, Yuan returns to China in the middle of a peasant uprising. His cousin is a captain in the revolutionary army, his sister has scandalized the family by her premarital pregnancy, and his warlord father continues to cling to his traditional ideals. It is through Yuan’s efforts that a kind of peace is restored to the family.

  • 11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative

    cover

    Perhaps no other president’s name is invoked by politicians as much as Ronald Reagan’s. Every election, as presidential hopefuls jockey for the Republican nomination, each one claims to be a “Reagan conservative.” But are these candidates truly carrying on the mantle of Ronald Reagan, or are they abusing the memory of our great president? What did Ronald Reagan really believe?

    In 11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative, biographer Paul Kengor analyzes Ronald Reagan’s speeches and actions to paint a full, accurate picture of his beliefs. Kengor identifies these principles that lie at the crux of Reagan’s conservatism; Freedom, Faith, Family, Sanctity and Dignity of Human Life, American Exceptionalism, The Founders’ Wisdom and Vision, Lower Taxes, Limited Government, Peace Through Strength, Anti-Communism, and Belief in the Individual. And it is through these principles that Reagan’s modern emulators may create a successful, conservative future.

    Many a politician has asked: What would Reagan do if he were president now? Where would Reagan stand on today’s issues? Who is the next Ronald Reagan? Paul Kengor dissects Reagan’s presidency and provides decisive conclusions. The answers to some of these questions may surprise conservatives and liberals alike.

  • 84, Charing Cross Road

    It all began with a letter inquiring about secondhand books, written by Helene Hanff in New York, and posted to a bookshop at 84 Charing Cross Road in London.

    Hanff_84_Charing_mp

    As Helen’s sarcastic and witty letters are responded to by the staid and proper Frank Doel of Marks & Company, a relationship blossoms into a warm, charming, feisty love affair. Her passion was for the obscure classics and British literature. She became intimately involved in the lives of the shop’s staff, sending them food parcels during England’s post-war shortages and sharing with them details of her life in Manhattan.

    Praise for 84, Charing Cross Road

    “…it’s difficult, if not impossible, to start this book without finishing it…this lovely volume reveals an awful lot about what books provide: a way of reaching out across time and space to friends and strangers…” – Anne Bancroft

  • A Pediatrician’s Journal: Caring for Children in a Broken Medical System

    orr-ped-journal A Pediatrician’s Journal: Caring for Kids in our Broken Medical System is a first-of-its-kind book examining the glaring inadequacies of the health care system in our world. Written by award-winning pediatrician Dr. Brian G. Orr, this book brings to the forefront the myriad issues plaguing modern medicine. Dr. Orr offers compelling evidence through his personal and professional experiences that the system is truly broken and in need of change. The stories in A Pediatrician’s Journal convincingly guide readers towards forming their own vision and realization of a more enlightened healthcare system.

    Tapping into the richness of his experiences practicing medicine in the United States and overseas, Dr. Orr’s accounts in A Pediatrician’s Journal are full of compassion and conviction, strength and vulnerability and bring the reader along on an amazing journey with a behind the scenes and very candid look at the world of medicine. Real-life stories and experiences of every-day families spanning the globe from villages in third world countries like Honduras and Guatemala to the suburbs of Boston will cause the reader to reexamine the way they look at their own healthcare system and provide them with a renewed sense of what is truly important in healthcare: the connection with their doctor.

    Professionals and families in the healthcare system today are seeking a more meaningful and positive way to recreate and redefine what medicine is today and how it influences their lives. A Pediatrician’s Journal is the groundbreaking book that shows them the way.

    “I couldn’t put it down; it touched my heart.” – Linda Weltner, former “Boston Globe” columnist

    “Orr’s personal journey as inspiring and entertaining as he takes on the military and the greedy hypocrites of the healthcare business.” – author Michael Maccoby

  • A Questionable Life

    questionablelifecoverHard-charging Philadelphia banker Jack Oliver has always made tough choices and sacrifices to achieve success, but when his mid-sized banking group is bought out by a mega-chain, Jack finds himself knocked from the top rung to the bottom of the ladder. When the stress of the merger lands him in the hospital, he realizes that his wife and kids hate him and his mistress is only interested in the number of zeros in his paycheck. When Jack is approached by Benny, the old-fashioned president of a small Virginia bank, he doubts he could ever work for such a small-town guy after his cut-throat career.
    Left without the success he once craved and the family he undervalued, Jack may discover how to reclaim what he had taken for granted and lead a new kind of ‘questionable life.’

    “In his debut novel, Lively combines his background as a bank executive and motivational speaker to deliver what reads like a self-help book disguised as fiction… [Lively] does spin a good story; especially vibrant are tense scenes of corporate greed and deceit.” – Publisher’s Weekly
