This thoughtful follow up to Poppy's Progress explores issues of family relationships, especially grief and loss. Middle-aged Poppy Sinclair is content enough with her life and her comfortable relationships with her friends, family, and cat. She is thrown into turmoil, however, when she must move back to her hometown to care for her dying father. There, she must face not only the difficult, slow loss of a parent to cancer but also her lingering feelings for a former flame, Jane. In a time of strong emotions for her entire family, Poppy reaches a turning point in her life, torn by grief for her father and excitement over what Jane might offer. Exquisite characterization and engaging dialogue distinguish this subtly challenging novel.

Poppy comes back to discover a note from Angel: At yor place. Need help. She finds him lying under the kitchen table, bleeding from an arm wound. Has he been stabbed? Why hasn't he rung 999? Who else is involved? And will her dad, now in an open prison, find out about her oddball friend? Rachel Billington's dramatic follow-up to Poppy's Hero features two opposing kinds of London kids, with Poppy straddling the gulf between them as she and her friends are drawn into a strange, unimaginable world.

The Bootlegger Murder Mystery involves the grandfather/adopted father of the author. Below is an interview excerpt taken from the newspapers, just days after Russell Brice began serving more than twenty years in Sing Sing Prison. "Brice is a cheerful chap, with smiling gray eyes and blonde hair. He is twenty-six years old and is not a bit ashamed of the many crimes of which he has been accused or of the time he has spent in prison.“Behind the downfall of every man there is a woman,” he remarks with the wisdom of the ages. “A woman has placed me where I am. It was her talk which gave me the reputation of being ‘a second Hamby’”. Gordon Hamby was a notorious bank robber and killer who was executed in Sing Sing Prison's electric chair in January of 1920. Thomas Riddell lives in Liverpool, New York.

Children born into twenty-first century America are immersed in a society no other generation in our great nation has ever experienced. The influence of Christianity, the Bible, and the church, have been minimized, and in some cases silenced. The Biblical mandate for the family to do the work of informing and training children in the things of God has never been more important. Poppy’s Faith is a step in this direction; it is a series of short stories that chronicle God’s involvement in the life of a regular guy from boyhood through retirement. Although it is addressed to the grandchildren of one family, the stories communicate the power of God to everyone. Poppy’s Faith serves as a template and an inspiration to parents and grandparents who have the burden to keep the flame burning and pass the torch of faith in Christ to the next generation.

Many edible plants considered exotic in the Western world are actually quite mainstream in other cultures. While some of these plants are only encountered in ethnic food markets or during travels to foreign lands, many are now finding their way onto supermarket shelves. Top 100 Exotic Food Plants provides comprehensive coverage of tropical and semitropical food plants, reviewing scientific and technological information as well as their culinary uses. Wide-ranging in scope, this volume’s coverage includes plants that produce fruits, vegetables, spices, culinary herbs, nuts, and extracts. A user-friendly format enables readers to easily locate information on botanical and agricultural aspects, economic and social importance, food uses, storage, preparation, and potential toxicity. The book also contains an introductory chapter that reviews important historical, economic, geopolitical, health, environmental, and ethical considerations associated with exotic food plants. Thoroughly referenced with more than 2000 literature citations, this book is enhanced by more than 200 drawings, many chosen from historical art of extraordinary quality. This timely volume also highlights previously obscure edible plants that have recently become prominent as a result of sensationalistic media reports stemming from their inherently entertaining or socially controversial natures. Some of these plants include the acai berry, kava, hemp, and opium poppy. A scholarly yet accessible presentation, the book is filled with numerous memorable, fascinating, and humorous facts, making it an entertaining and stimulating read that will appeal to a broad audience.
