A lighthearted parody of Eric Carle's much-loved classic The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Very Hungry Pregnant Lady tackles the mysteries faced by pregnant women everywhere—namely, how can I have so little space for my stomach and yet be hungry all the time? And is it better to try unsuccessfully to sleep, or just give in and have another snack? Pairing playful text with bright, colorful images, The Very Hungry Pregnant Lady is both a send-up and a celebration of this strange, ridiculous, and exciting time in the lives of all mothers-to-be.

Having children changes your life, but it doesn't have to change what you cook. Like her blog, www.TheNaptimeChef.com, Banfield's cookbook is equal parts pragmatic parent and ardent foodie. The result is a tasty playbook of meals, made over to save time without compromising taste. Some favorites are the 45-minute artichoke lasagna, assembled in the morning or afternoon and held in the fridge until dinnertime; a roast chicken that's rubbed down with herbs in the morning stays moist and flavorful when roasted later in the evening; a French toast casserole that can be tossed together the night before and popped in the oven in the morning for a special breakfast. Soups, salads, veggies, sides, main courses, and desserts are all adapted to the time that you have-whether it's during naptime, before bedtime, in the morning, or on the weekends-without sacrificing quality or flavor. Take back dinner, one dish at a time!

Irish maid Molly Riordan never thought she would thank her lucky stars when her mistress, Lady Elizabeth Summersby, indulged in one night's indiscretion with a masked American at a costume ball. But now Lady Elizabeth has a child on the way, and a fiance waiting in the wilds of the American West. For Molly, accompanying Lady Elizabeth on this unexpected adventure creates the chance to find her own father, who fled across the ocean years ago to make his fortune. But then a routine stagecoach stop in Colorado turns into a mishap of epic proportions. Lady Elizabeth is kidnapped, and the man the Lady is to marry believes Molly is his bride-to-be! NO PLACE FOR A LADY isn't your traditional historical romance. Explore the struggles of two families and four growing romances where family is the theme, and the ties that bond aren't always blood. "Swift action, riveting drama, and of course a romance to sigh for." ~Susan Wiggs, Bestselling Author "Warm and loving characters, and enough sexual electricity to power California!" ~ Romance Reviews Today

From Library Journal Sociologists Murphy and Rosenbaum interviewed over 120 women who had children while using drugs. Their interviews reveal how the women became addicted, how they may or may not have modified their behavior to protect their children, and how they have dealt with having children and losing them as a result of their addiction. Not all the women interviewed were from abusive or poor families; there is extensive information on how the study population was selected. Also included are suggestions on how to deal with the problem, including women-centered drug treatment and training programs to help women learn trades as well as parenting skills. Though the interviews are enlightening, readers may wish for more answers to the question of how to deal with the root problem and less about the problems drug-addicted mothers face. For academic libraries, especially those with women's studies and sociology collections.'Danna C. Bell-Russel, Natl. Equal Justice Lib., Washington, DC Review A powerful refuation of the media-hype stereotypes of pregnant drug users as selfish and unfeeling, Pregnant Women on Drugs shows the extent to which many drug-using women develop the motivation to achieve their dual goals of improving their children's health and maintaining maternal custody. -- Steven R. Kandall, M.D., F.A.A.P., and author Substance and Shadow: Women and Addiction in the United States Research-based but intensely personal. . . You will be touched by the poignant descriptions about the real lives of pregnant women on drugs. . . Pertinent reading for researchers, clinicians, and all Americans. -- Loretta P. Finnegan, M.D., researcher and perinatal addiction specialist Touching and informative. . . Drug-addicted women who have either been ignored or reviled are finally given voice to tell their own stories. Their sad, true, and quintessentially human experiences provide persuasive arguments for compassion and supportive approaches to the problems of substance abuse and pregnancy. -- Lynn Paltrow, civil liberties and reproductive freedom attorney

There is no denying it: motherhood splits a woman’s life forever, into a before and an after. To this doubled life Lisa Catherine Harper brings a wealth of feeling and a wry sense of humor, a will to understand the emotional and biological transformations that motherhood entails, and a narrative gift that any reader will enjoy. Harper documents her own journey across this great divide as a seasoned explorer might, observing, researching, relating anecdotes and critical information. From late-night Lindy Hop dancing to crippling sciatica, morning sickness to indulgent meals, graduate seminars to sophisticated ultrasounds, Harper marries scientific details with intimate insights as she uncovers the fascinating strangeness of this remarkably familiar territory. Following Harper’s first pregnancy from conception to her daughter’s first word, A Double Life looks at how the biological facts of motherhood give rise to life-altering emotional and psychological changes. It shows us how motherhood transforms the female body, hijacks a woman’s mind, and splits her life in two, creating an identity both brand new and as old as time. It charts the passage from individual to incubator, from pregnancy, labor, and nursing to language acquisition, from coupledom to the complex reality of family life. Harper’s carefully researched story reminds us that motherhood’s central joys are also its most essential transformations. Watch a book trailer.

An essential read for all those interested in landscape, wildlife, climate change and renewable energy. The Scottish Cheviot hills and its amazing wildlife are under severe threat. A young couple find themselves at the heart of their defence..... A lone walker strays from the path, loses his way and in need of food and shelter discovers an ancient shepherd who welcomes him into his incredible home and shows him how he has transformed the bare hills into an upland paradise. The walker asks if he can help and the shepherd demonstrates how the simple act of choosing and sowing the right seed in the right place can transform the future, but the young man is distracted when he finds a highly valuable hoard of gold. Rather than confessing to his find he conceals it and returning home sells it, so sealing his destiny. "A beautiful and thought provoking read, mixing passion, humour and drama in a delightful way."
