Good news! Fannie’s back in town—and the town is among the leading characters in her new novel. Along with Neighbor Dorothy, the lady with the smile in her voice, whose daily radio broadcasts keep us delightfully informed on all the local news, we also meet Bobby, her ten-year-old son, destined to live a thousand lives, most of them in his imagination; Norma and Macky Warren and their ninety-eight-year-old Aunt Elner; the oddly sexy and charismatic Hamm Sparks, who starts off in life as a tractor salesman and ends up selling himself to the whole state and almost the entire country; and the two women who love him as differently as night and day. Then there is Tot Whooten, the beautician whose luck is as bad as her hairdressing skills; Beatrice Woods, the Little Blind Songbird; Cecil Figgs, the Funeral King; and the fabulous Minnie Oatman, lead vocalist of the Oatman Family Gospel Singers. The time is 1946 until the present. The town is Elmwood Springs, Missouri, right in the middle of the country, in the midst of the mostly joyous transition from war to peace, aiming toward a dizzyingly bright future. Once again, Fannie Flagg gives us a story of richly human characters, the saving graces of the once-maligned middle classes and small-town life, and the daily contest between laughter and tears. Fannie truly writes from the heartland, and her storytelling is, to quote Time, "utterly irresistible."

Standing Under the Wrong Rainbow entwines insights from the Bible with the opinions of the author, G. Deon Thompson, to make the case for the durability of the traditional view of marriage as the lifelong union of one woman and one man, while exposing the shortcomings of modern arguments that speak in favor of gay marriage. Chapters treat a variety of topics, including the history of the notion of "rights," the scriptural grounding for the traditional morality of marriage, philosophies of truth, the challenges of modern life, the sacrificial nature of godly love, and the essence of marriage as God intends it for human life. If you have found yourself struggling with contemporary debates over the nature of marriage, if you wonder whether the church's traditional teachings still apply in the twenty-first century, and if you feel a growing divide between the practice of your faith and the life of the wider community, then Standing Under the Wrong Rainbow serves as a wake-up call and a guide to reclaiming the power of longstanding tradition.

A state visit to China during the first year in office is unprecedented for a U.S. president, but Barack Obama has made it. Moreover, the fact that President Obama spent four days and three nights of his seven-day visit to four Asian nations in Beijing and Shanghai has demonstrated the importance his administration attaches to China and to Sino-U.S. relations in its global strategy. Six other U.S. presidents (Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, and Bush Jr.) visited China during their terms in office, but none went within the first year, and none went having accepted more than ten million dollars in campaign funds from their host. The meeting between the American President, President Hu, and Jet How Chung precipitated the violent reaction of the commander-in-chief that took place on Air Force One as it sat on the tarmac in Beijing, November 2009. This is a work of fiction, however, the facts and figures quoted are historically accurate. Most statistical data came from the Congressional Record or from accredited news sources. Some of the figures who appear, however, do so under their own names.

Many years ago, I had a vision full of dreams of putting a positive drop in the ocean of life to help create a better world for all of us in generations to come. I saw with a broken mirror, with a world full of tears, full of hurts and frustration with deepening pain, which cried endlessly for a red cross band-aid and cure. It was many years later that my vision was written on paper in the form of poetry. My many trials and suffering, along with many running off the road of light, with dead ends did not go in vain. I hope my many poems of love, Jesus, Mary, peace, and the poor will help to inspire each reader to open their eyes and minds wider to Jesus endless love and dreamers with authentic peace, with their hearts open to realize the suffering and the huge rocky mountain that the poor and unwanted, lost and forgotten, climb that mountain courageously day after day. You may be passing by a war hero in disguise many have despairing stories to tell. Jesus dwells in the suffering poor. He loves his forgotten lamb in the same way that he loves us. Please give them dignity and respect for they struggle for the good life with the little that they have with hopeful courage, and a trail of brokenness and pain, with hanging on to the Lord's strength and his many crosses to turn their darkness into God's light. So be a brother or sister to them and lend them a hand when you can, their destiny starts and ends with you.

The Rainbow is a novel by British author D. H. Lawrence. It follows three generations of the Brangwen family living in Nottinghamshire, particularly focusing on the individual's struggle to growth and fulfilment within the confining strictures of English social life. The Rainbow tells the story of three generations of the Brangwen family, a farm/ labouring dynasty who live in the East Midlands of England near Nottingham. The book spans a period of roughly 65 years from the 1840s to 1905, and shows how the love relationships of the Brangwens change against the backdrop of the increasing industrialisation of Britain. The first central character, Tom Brangwen, is a farmer whose experience of the world does not stretch beyond Nottinghamshire; while the last, Ursula, his granddaughter, studies at University and becomes a teacher in the progressively urbanised, capitalist and industrial world that would become our modern experience. The book starts with a description of the Brangwen dynasty, then deals with how Tom Brangwen, one of several brothers, fell in love with a Polish refugee, Lydia. The next part of the book deals with Lydia's daughter by her first husband, Anna, and her destructive, battle-riven relationship with her husband, Will, the son of one of Tom's brothers. The last and most extended part of the book, and also probably the most famous, then deals with Will and Anna's daughter, Ursula, and her struggle to find fulfilment for her passionate, spiritual and sensual nature against the confines of the increasingly materialist and conformist society around her. She experiences a lesbian relationship with a teacher, and a passionate but ultimately doomed love affair with Anton Skrebensky, a British soldier of Polish ancestry. At the end of the book, having failed to find her fulfilment in Skrebensky, she has a vision of a rainbow towering over the Earth, promising a new dawn for humanity: "She saw in the rainbow the earth's new architecture, the old, brittle corruption of houses and factories swept away, the world built up in a living fabric of Truth, fitting to the over-arching heaven."

Published in Indonesia in 2005, The Rainbow Troops, Andrea Hirata's closely autobiographical debut novel, sold more than five million copies, shattering records. Now it promises to captivate audiences around the globe. Ikal is a student at the poorest village school on the Indonesian island of Belitong, where graduating from sixth grade is considered a remarkable achievement. His school is under constant threat of closure. In fact, Ikal and his friends—a group nicknamed the Rainbow Troops—face threats from every angle: skeptical government officials, greedy corporations hardly distinguishable from the colonialism they've replaced, deepening poverty and crumbling infrastructure, and their own low self-confidence. But the students also have hope, which comes in the form of two extraordinary teachers, and Ikal's education in and out of the classroom is an uplifting one. We root for him and his friends as they defy the island's powerful tin mine officials. We meet his first love, the unseen girl who sells chalk from behind a shop screen, whose pretty hands capture Ikal's heart. We cheer for Lintang, the class's barefoot math genius, as he bests the students of the mining corporation's school in an academic challenge. Above all, we gain an intimate acquaintance with the customs and people of the world's largest Muslim society. This is classic storytelling in the spirit of Khaled Hosseini's The Kite Runner: an engrossing depiction of a milieu we have never encountered before, bursting with charm and verve.
