✏A House Full of Females Book Summary : From the author of A Midwife's Tale, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the Bancroft Prize for History, and The Age of Homespun--a revelatory, nuanced, and deeply intimate look at the world of early Mormon women whose seemingly ordinary lives belied an astonishingly revolutionary spirit, drive, and determination. A stunning and sure-to-be controversial book that pieces together, through more than two dozen nineteenth-century diaries, letters, albums, minute-books, and quilts left by first-generation Latter-day Saints, or Mormons, the never-before-told story of the earliest days of the women of Mormon "plural marriage," whose right to vote in the state of Utah was given to them by a Mormon-dominated legislature as an outgrowth of polygamy in 1870, fifty years ahead of the vote nationally ratified by Congress, and who became political actors in spite of, or because of, their marital arrangements. Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, writing of this small group of Mormon women who've previously been seen as mere names and dates, has brilliantly reconstructed these textured, complex lives to give us a fulsome portrait of who these women were and of their "sex radicalism"--the idea that a woman should choose when and with whom to bear children. From the Hardcover edition.

✏The Dragon 050376 Presents Simple Complexities Book Summary : People blog for all sorts of reasons, all of which are significant and valid to that individual. For me, it evolved quickly from a test site for fictional writing into a safe haven for my own ideology and belief system where I was free to express myself about any topic that I saw fit. The therapeutic value of this kind of expression became evident when through comments from fellow bloggers, I realized that other people felt the same way I did about many topics that involved our modern day society. In some cases, I stood alone in my ideas, but even in those situations, hearing ideas contrary to my own if nothing else was an enlightening experience. This book is a collection of some of my blog posts...my attempt to contribute to this concept of cooperative growing and learning. I share my ideas and thoughts hoping that youll learn from me or learn from yourself through reacting to my words. You will find some proof within these pages that you and I most assuredly have something in common.

✏Broken Open Book Summary : 'And the time came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom' Anaïs Nin Elizabeth Lesser shows how it is possible to deal with fearful change or a painful loss and be reborn, like the Phoenix, to a more vibrant and enlightened self. In Broken Open she shares penetrating tales from her own life, the lives of those she has taught and counselled and the lives of friends and family, tales that explore the big challenges of death, illness and divorce, as well as the daily roller coaster rides of relationships, parenting and work. Woven into these stories are quotations from great poets and philosophers. And following them is a toolbox of valuable aids, including meditation, psychological enquiry and spiritual practice. The result is a book that runs the gamut of the human experience, and in a style that is genuine, funny, often heartbreaking, but always inspiring, she shows us how we, too, can allow the pain of adversity to break us open instead of breaking us down, making us bitter or closing our hearts.
