The Whirligig of Time:
A Memoir of Civilian Life in America During World War II

Description: “Exceptional. Poignant memoir weaves women’s courage, love, family devotion. Surprising historical perspectives.” — Evelyn Asher, Author of “A Tapestry of Global Friendships”

Nora Percival’s third memoir completes a trilogy about a woman’s life during three significant spans of her long lifetime. It recaptures the arduous days of World War II, when civilians in America were focused on defending our way of life against the brutal tyranny of Nazism. As she delineates her role in the national emergency, the sympathetic reader follows her vicissitudes and the drastic dislocations suffered by so many women in wartime.
The author’s challenging job, in a large defense plant producing vital war materiel, broke new ground. In planning this book, Percival turned to her daily reports, still in her files. “Rereading them after more than 65 years,” the narrator writes, “those hectic, pressured days that demanded all my stamina, ingenuity, empathy and endurance rose up in my memory.”
Woven into her chapters, these reports provide a vivid portrait of the trials and triumphs of women’s private battles. It was her concern for the unhappily divided state of our present world that impelled Percival to write of a time when Americans were united, all working together to save our country from Hitler’s despotic assault.

Biography:  Nora Lourie Percival was born just after World War I in Samara on the Volga River in Russia. The revolution drove her father out of the country to safety, and her family lived through a civil war and a famine. These tribulations were recorded in “Weather of the Heart,” her first memoir. In 1922, the family was reunited in New York, where Nora grew up. The author’s career has been largely in the editorial field. She has worked for Random House, the American Management Association, and Barnard College. Now long retired, she is still writing and working as a freelance editor. An only child, she has raised five children and now has eleven grandchildren. She lives in the mountains of North Carolina, where she enjoys the natural beauty and is inspired by the literary renaissance in the South.

Description: Silver Pages on the Lawn is the true story of student lovers and their star-crossed romance that endures parental disapproval as well as the want of time, money, and privacy. To bridge long separations, they make love by words alone. Their passionate, eloquent letters, poignant and poetic, are the heart of this memoir and bring to life the troubled era in which their story takes place—the lean days of the Great Depression, war clouds over Europe, and the literary renaissance of which these aspiring writers were part, form the heart of their history.

    Silver Pages on the Lawn paints a dramatic picture of the difficult years they lived through and of the steadfast love that survived it all and carried them through to the life they dreamed of.

A Child’s Journey Out of Revolutionary Russia

Publisher:  Kent Hollow Press / High Country Publishers

Description: All through her long busy life in America, Nora Percival felt impelled to learn about the family she’d left behind in Samara, the city on the Volga where she was born. After glasnost she was finally able to go there and find the places, though not the people, of her youth.

Her search resurrected childhood memories of revolution, civil war, famine and exile, which she felt impelled to share, “to speak for so many others who have silently endured the loss of all they valued.”

In her book the reader will meet the extended family who faced many trials in those chaotic years, and will be moved by their steadfast togetherness through want and woe. The reader will share the love and courage that sustained them and helped them survive hunger and despair, the humor that cheered dreary days and the strength that carried them through affliction and calamity. Readers will cry over their sorrows and enjoy their small triumphs, and they will live again in memory.

Review Announcement: Sterlen and A Mosaic of Mountain Women

Sterlen and a Mosaic of Mountain Women – An Unexpectedly Exciting Read

Review by Julia Asel Thomas

Amy Ammons Garza blew my socks off with her amazingly well-drawn characters and intriguing storyline. I had expected a sedate story set in the mountains.  Sterlen and a Mosaic of Mountain Women was indeed set in the mountains, but it was so much more than that. The characters brought to life the mores, language and culture of mountain life. Not only was the story true to that way of life, but the characters were remarkably well drawn.

Although the story’s title suggests that it is mainly about a character named Sterlen, it seemed to me that it was really the story of one of those mountain women. The book opens with a visit by a folkloric-style mountain man bringing his gift of music and song to a family in rural North Carolina. The entire family was featured prominently in the story, but the one to watch was the dark and silent young woman named Marthie. Marthie turns out to have lived through a series of overwhelming traumas. As the story progresses, we find out the depth of those experiences. But Sterlen has fallen in love with Marthie, almost at first sight. The rest of the story revolves around their courtship and how Marthie, with Stelen’s help, resolves her inner struggles.

At first, I was skeptical of the story. It had a few technical issues that I immediately found off-putting. For example, the author used passive voice occasionally. She also sometimes slipped into mountain-speak during the narrative portions of the story. However, by the second chapter I was so intrigued with the dramatic twists and turns of the story and the marvelously rich character development that I no longer noticed those minor problems. The story seemed to leap off the pages and directly into my imagination.

The book’s supreme readability and intricate storyline left me wanting more. I would love to read a similar book about any of the mountain people featured in the book. And, even though the story was based on true events, I suspect that if the author writes more about the Ammons family, I will find myself as wrapped up in the storytelling as I was with this amazing book. I heartily recommend this beautiful story.

Book Hub Inc – Sony Announces Termination of the SonyReader Catalog

Book Hub has received several emails today with the following announcement:

=============================================================================

February 6, 2014

Subject: Future of Reader Store

 To Our Valued Publishing Partners: 

Today Sony announced its intent to close its Reader Store service in the U.S. and Canada and transfer customers to Toronto-based eReading company Kobo.  We strongly believe that the decision to transfer customers to Kobo will enable customers to continue to enjoy a high quality customer experience. As a result of this change, we will be terminating purchase functionality from the Reader Store service in the U.S. and Canada on March 20, 2014, and phasing out our service. 

 In order to enable our customers to continue their digital reading experience, we will offer customers the ability to transfer their libraries over to a Kobo account, to the extent that the content exists in Kobo’s catalog. In late March, our customers will receive a notification from us with a tokenized link to enable this transfer.

 After the store closes, customers will continue to be able to open, manage, and read their locally stored Reader Store eBook content on their existing Reader devices and applications. Until about May 15, 2014, we will allow customers to re-download all their purchased eBooks from Reader Store. 

 From now thru March 20, we will continue to process metadata updates that you send to us. We will, however, cease to process or add any new content from you to our catalog. Kindly notify your production or operations teams of this change. You will receive a final sales statement for your sales at Reader Store in April 2014.

 Thank you for being such a loyal partner over the years and for your continued support as we work to complete this transition with as little disruption to our customer base as possible.

 Sincerely,

 Your Reader Store team

Year Round Reading Get the scoop from Mr. Media Books about: Why Men Watch Football: A Report From The Couch

 Every weekend in the living rooms of America, from August through January, millions of men are seated in front of their television sets watching college and professional football.

     Meanwhile, others are pouring into stadiums all across the land, a bounce in their step, hope in their heart, and a beer in at least one hand.

     What is it that excites men about football? What the big attraction? Why is it that some men will sit down for three, six, or even nine hours in front of a TV set when football is on, yet they won’t sit still for more than 15 minutes for anything else when they’re home?

     Why is it that some men get so emotionally involved in watching football that they’ll scream, jump up and down, cheer and otherwise act as if they have a screw loose when their team wins—and become upset or even severely depressed when they lose?

     With the help of some of the nation’s leading sports psychologists and sociologists and dozens of male football fans, author Bob Andelman explores the male psyche and arrives at several intriguing and controversial conclusions about why men watch football.
