Kindred Book Review:

The visionary author’s masterpiece pulls us—along with her Black female hero—through time to face the horrors of slavery and explore the impacts of racism, sexism, and white supremacy then and now. Dana, a modern black woman, is celebrating her twenty-sixth birthday with her new husband when she is snatched abruptly from her home in California and transported to the antebellum South. Rufus, the white son of a plantation owner, is drowning, and Dana has been summoned to save him. Dana is drawn back repeatedly through time to the slave quarters, and each time the stay grows longer, more arduous, and more dangerous until it is uncertain whether or not Dana's life will end, long before it has a chance to begin.

Kindred Hands Book Review:

Kindred Hands, a collection of previously unpublished letters by women writers, explores the act and art of writing from diverse perspectives and experiences. The letters illuminate such issues as authorship, aesthetics, collaboration, inspiration, and authorial intent. By focusing on letters that deal with authorship, the editors reveal a multiplicity of perspectives on female authorship that would otherwise require visits to archives and special collections. Representing some of the most important female writers of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, including transatlantic correspondents, women of color, canonical writers, regional writers, and women living in the British empire, Kindred Hands will enliven scholarship on a host of topics, including reception theory, feminist studies, social history, composition theory, modernism, and nineteenth-century studies. Moreover, because it represents previously unpublished primary sources, the collection will initiate new discussions on race, class, sexuality, ethnicity, and gender with an eye to writing at the turn of the twentieth century. The Writers Mary Elizabeth Braddon, Mary Cholmondeley, Mary Chavelita Dunne Bright [George Egerton], Rhoda Broughton, Marie Corelli, Rebecca Harding Davis, Mary Abigail Dodge [Gail Hamilton], Jessie Redmon Fauset, Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, Mary St. Leger Kingsley Harrison [Lucas Malet], Annesley Kenealy, Palma Pederson, Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, Henrietta Stannard, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Rosamund Marriott Watson [Graham R.

Kindred Spirits Book Review:

After one fateful PTA meeting, four young mothers—Lynne, Mary Kay, Beth, and Carol—discovered they had more in common than they ever thought possible. Meeting once a month, the women would share laughs and secrets, toasting to their blossoming friendship with the clink of their sacred martini glasses. Two years later, when Lynne passes away suddenly, she leaves behind one simple request: that her old friends sort through her belongings. The women reunite to rummage through her closets, and buried deep within Lynne’s lingerie drawer, they find an envelope addressed to their little society… Inside is a letter that reveals Lynn’s shocking secret and last wish, sending the women on a life-changing journey that will reveal to them that nothing is more powerful than the will of a true girlfriend—and a good, strong martini.

Kindred Book Review:

I asked myself why I came here to this wretched place. Why did I surround myself with death, insanity and decay? Like everyone else who dwelled there, I had been discarded. I had no choice, nowhere else to go. Kindred is a literary portrait of the difficulties author Fatimah Broxton faced as a young girl who grows up feeling like an outsider in her own family. The product of a drug-addicted biological mother and a ruthless adopted mother, differences in bloodlines and emotional sensibilities make for the near destruction of a fragile girl's self-esteem. A childhood filled with abuse leads to eating disorders, nightmares, and thoughts of suicide. The only bright spot in her life is the happy, sweet, and, above all, religious grandmother, who brings some sense of normalcy. From being beaten with broom handles and whipped with the branches of a forsythia bush to becoming a talented young writer, Broxton's life makes for a chaotic blend of self-hatred, emotional longing, and an unexplainable will to triumph. The stories in Kindred illuminate the miracle of the human capability to love and forgive despite the brutal treatment from the one person Broxton loves most-her mother.

Then, one night the demise of the old race found the new and the vampire hunters killed some of the clan, including Steel’s only true love. Steel vowed to preserve his race, now he vows his revenge.

Kindred Book Review:

There, he meets Kitt, the subject of his dreams and a capable survivor in her own right. They learn that a huge pack of the Infected is marching on their makeshift community, and that the creatures will not stop until they have killed or Infected everyone. Unbeknownst to them all, the leader of this pack is planning an unexpected family reunion at the cabin--a reunion that none of the survivors will ever forget. Can Thristopher prepare the survivors for the violent reality that's churning inexorably towards their door?

Kindred Book Review:

What do we think of when we hear the word “family”? Perhaps brothers and sisters, mother, father, cousins are brought to mind. In the strictest sense, of course these are all family members. But the bond goes much deeper than that. Families share a common ancestry or beginning which is not limited to people. Man has always had a strong connection with nature. It is the first thing we think of when we want to get away from life’s trials. But, perhaps it is not that we want to get away so much as it is our need to find familiarity, likeness, comfort and acceptance. In nature we find all these things and more: beauty, strength and power, giving and yes, the blemished as well—all things we see in each other. It’s like looking into a mirror. In Kindred—A Family Portrait, Monica Smith poignantly makes the connection between man and nature, completing the circle of our ancestry. You will never again see a tree as “just” a tree.

Kindred: An American Love Story Book Review:

An herbalist and free woman of color, Kindred Twain and Lelaheo/Cassian Harkness, an Oneida Indian, had been inseparable since childhood, so it was no surprise to anyone when their childhood bond blossomed into love as they grew into adulthood. Neither suspected when they agreed to wait to wed until Lelaheo had completed his medical studies in Europe that they were poised on the eve of the American Revolution, or that a young British miss named Adeline would threaten to tear them apart forever.

Kindred Spirit, Kindred Care Book Review:

Pets are now considered family members, and at the same time, profound changes are taking place in veterinary medicine. Procedures formerly available only for people are now also options for animals, giving rise to both tougher decisions and higher costs. To help the millions of pet owners in the United States navigate this new landscape, veterinarian Shannon Fujimoto Nakaya carefully lays out the issues people may face when confronted with a pet’s health crisis and considering whether to pursue a particular treatment. She shows how each decision involves understanding the medical condition, treatment options, and potential outcomes — as well as one’s own priorities and resources. The book explores the human-animal bond; healthy living and graceful aging; understanding diagnoses and options; managing needs and expectations; and more. Delivering much needed solace and guidance, it makes this uncharted territory more manageable for the many pet caretakers wanting to do the right thing for their loved ones.

In a world of secrets, lies, and innocence lost, young Sibyl Fernwood must suffer the sins of her domineering father while confronting restless souls forever trapped in the mansion he has built. "Some wish only to communicate. Others, though, most certainly seek to harm and destroy " A witness to history, Sibyl documents it all in her journal.

"There is no rest where there is no peace "

Kindred Spirits Book Review:

Treating animals just as any healer would treat human beings, Allen Schoen has become one of America’s most celebrated veterinarians. Kindred Spirits shares the transformative power of his remarkable methods, explores how alternative healing is revolutionizing his profession, and, in the tradition of James Herriot, shares heartwarming stories of animals and their caretakers who have deeply enriched each other’s lives. Through moving scenes–such as an ailing German shepherd who fights to stay alive so he can assist and comfort his ailing human companion–Schoen details the ways in which the human-animal bond can provide a wellspring of love and support, and outlines his own special prescription for improving the care we give our animals through adopting simple healing practices at home. A remarkable new synthesis of science and spirit, Kindred Spirits at last reveals the many ways our animal friends can help us lead happier, healthier, more fulfilling lives.

Blood Kindred Book Review:

In June 1934, W. B. Yeats gratefully received the award of a Goethe-Plakette from Oberburgermeister Krebs, four months after his early play The Countess Cathleen had been produced in Frankfurt by SS Untersturmfuhrer Bethge. Four years later, the poet publicly commended Nazi legislation before leaving Dublin to die in southern France. These hitherto neglected, isolated and scandalous details stand at the heart of this reflective study of Yeats's life, his attitudes towards death, and his politics. Blood Kindred identifies an obsession with family as the link connecting Yeats's late engagement with fascism to his Irish Victorian origins in suburban Dublin and industrializing Ulster. It carefully documents and analyses his involvement with both Maud Gonne and her daughter Iseult, his secretive consultations with Irish army officers during his Senate years, his incidental anti-Semitism, and his approval of the right-wing royalist group L'Action Française in the 1920s. The familiar peaks and troughs of Irish history, such as the 1916 Rising and the death of Parnell, are re-oriented within a radical new interpretation of Yeats's life and thought, his poetry and plays. As far as possible Bill McCormack lets Yeats speak for himself through generous quotation from his newly accessible correspondence. The result is a combative, entertaining biography which allows Ireland's greatest literary figure to be seen in the round for the first time.
