✏A Handful of Rain Book Summary : Every day there walk anonymously among us people who have had extraordinary experiences. Their very presence serves as a tribute to the strength of the human spirit. That cannot be better illustrated than by this moving account of a young girl who discovers she has a medical condition whose lifelong consequences she could not even imagine. This is her story, right up to the touching moment when a stranger's death brings her renewed hope through the modern magic of a double organ transplant. Her story takes an even more dramatic turn as she discovers her organ donor's identity. As it turns out, her donor, too, had a story. As the author takes us through her childhood, we relive with her the days when doctors sterilized and reused syringes and the treatment of diseases like hers, diabetes, was somewhat hit and miss. She describes how her early optimism took shape with each small victory-learning to inject a grapefruit with make-believe insulin, celebrating with nurses at her bedside the Beatles' debut on the Ed Sullivan Show. This book brings timely attention to the complexities and consequences of diabetes, a disease becoming more prevalent in our times. It also serves to remind us of the immense medical progress we have achieved over the last few decades. The legally blind author's tale makes us realize the hardships some people experience and highlights the courage and determination that led her to write her story. A Handful of Rain is an inspiring book which will lift your spirit, make you appreciate your own blessings in life, give you new insight into the marvels of modern medicine, and perhaps make you look at the people around you in a new, more appreciative light. You will find that this book teaches more than what it may have set out to do. While readers will be introduced, gently and often with humor, to the daily realities of life with diabetes, they will come to the end of the story with a sense of awe at what goes on around us that we who are not blind fail to see. While the author may have embarked upon her autobiography with the goal of providing useful information about her condition, her exceptional writing skill and personal humility turned this account into a work of inspiration and hope that will uplift anyone's spirit. Carol Ward Wilson was born in Whitewater, Wisconsin in 1953, one of five children. When she was eleven, her family moved to Ohio, where she graduated in 1971 from Hilliard High School. She attended Texas Christian University-Harris College of Nursing from 1971 to 1973. She and her husband Mick married in 1975. They now reside in Peachtree City, Georgia, just south of Atlanta. A Handful of Rain is the author's first book.

✏The Quiet War Omnibus Book Summary : THE QUIET WAR Who decides what it means to be human? Twenty-third century Earth has been ravaged by climate change, and is now dominated by a few powerful families, with millions of people in prison and millions more labouring to rebuild ruined ecosystems. Meanwhile on Jupiter and Saturn, live the Outers. They have built a wild variety of scientific utopias crammed with exuberant creations of the genetic arts. Now they want to colonise Earth and drive human evolution in a new direction. On Earth, some want to launch a pre-emptive strike against the Outers while others wish to exploit the talents of the gene wizards. It is clear that the fragile detente between the two branches of humanity is breaking down and they may be heading towards war . . . GARDENS OF THE SUN The Quiet War is over. A century of enlightenment, rational utopianism and exploration of new ways of being human has fallen dark. But victory is fragile, and riven by vicious internal politics. While seeking out and trying to anatomise the strange gardens abandoned in place by Avernus, the Outers' greatest genius, the gene wizard Sri Hong-Owen is embroiled in the plots and counterplots of the family that employs her. The diplomat Loc Ifrahim soon discovers that profiting from victory isn't as easy as he thought. And in Greater Brazil, the Outers' democratic traditions have infected a population eager to escape the tyranny of the great families who rule them. After such a conflict only one thing is clear. No one can escape the consequences of war - especially the victors.
