In The Sparrow's Song, the final book in The Bond Woman Trilogy, Hannah Miller becomes the wife of a Methodist minister, Pastor Mark Adams. Though Mark is persistent in trying to disabuse Hannah of the notion that she is under the Bishop's curse, Hannah is haunted by her fear that the curse is real. When a song sparrow is the first bird to come to the feeder Mark has put up for her, Mark cites Scripture: "Like a fluttering sparrow, or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest." Nevertheless, Hannah harbors the thought that she did deserve the curse. On their honeymoon they hear the clear, bubbling song of a song sparrow, and Mark tells her it is a good omen for their life together. Though Mark says his desire for children is fulfilled by the step-children Hannah brings into their marriage-six-year-old Ida and thirteen-year-old Joey-she regrets that she cannot give him a biological child. He tells her that she and her children are enough. Hannah's longing to become a mother again is more than satisfied by a foster program that her husband starts, a program called "The Oasis." As Hannah and Mark decide to become foster parents of infants whose mothers are trying to decide whether to put them up for adoption or not, they cannot know that this decision will be take them from the mountain top of joy to the valley of despair. In The Sparrow's Song, author Janice Dembosky takes her readers into the peaks and valleys of her trademark multi-faceted plot, weaving in and out of Amish settlements and the Outside. Dembosky also re-introduces the characters readers have come to know and love-Sandra and Abram Goodman and their children, Israel and Isaac; Alexa Darling, fondly known as "the goat lady," and her family-as well as introducing them to new ones. Questions left unanswered by the first two books of The Bond Woman Trilogy are dealt with in The Sparrow's Song-the question of little Ida's paternity and the consequences of not telling the Goodman and Yoder children that they are related biologically. Readers will not be disappointed by the complexity and unpredictability of the plot of book three, The Sparrow's Song. It promises to take them on the emotional roller coaster ride they have come to expect from this author.

This book offers a comprehensive study of language development. The contributors, all well-known psychologists, represent a very broad range of theoretical persuasion. Each chapter summarises research on a major problem and relates results to fundamental questions about how children acquire language. Among the issues treated are the role of input in acquisition, the processes of underlying lexical and semantic development, the implications of cross-linguistic research for acquisition theory, the pros and cons of functionalist approaches to language learning and the psychological consequences of a major new formal theory of language learning. In their long and thoughtful introduction, the editors demonstrate the complementarity of studies focused on seemingly separate problems and identify apparent trends, both theoretical and methodological. Taken together, these chapters provide an entry point into an increasingly complex field for the growing number of researchers and students in psychology and linguistics whose work requires an understanding of the child's first steps in language.

Prairie Gulch, Texas, is a rough-and-tumble town tucked away on the fringes of the civilized world; the Civil War has had its effect here, though, in spite of the town’s isolation. It has been twenty years since the war ended, and yet people still remember the pain it caused. Some citizens even harbor secrets of that dark time—secrets told to no one. Could the woman living in the large house on the edge of town be the legend whispered about for years? The knowledge of a truth that could rewrite history comes with a heavy price – a price some have already paid and others will. A series of strange deaths suddenly sets the city on its toes and reawakens past pain. Decades earlier, the assassination of President Lincoln shocked the nation. Now, his ghost seems to haunt their small Texas town. In this third and final installment of the Song of the Red Sparrow series, all secrets are revealed, all conflicts resolved, and all lives changed.

So much has happened in the twenty years following the Civil War, the most shocking event to stun the country to date. As a young nation fights for survival and identity, its citizens seek their own purpose and understanding. In Prairie Gulch, a hidden town in Texas, what seems on the surface like the innocent arrival of four singers puts in motion a series of events that could alter history itself. One of the young entertainers could be the key to unlocking a mystery- a local myth discussed only in hushed tones that has captivated the attention of locals for years. As the puzzle begins to come together, the townspeople may learn that some legends are better left unproven, and some secrets are better left buried. "Song of the Red Sparrow Book Two" is the second installment in a trilogy that traces an epic American story. From the end of the Civil War to a small, isolated frontier town in Texas two decades later, guarded secrets are about to be revealed, lives changed, loves lost ... and history itself could be rewritten.

In this thought-provoking book, distinguished legal scholar Joseph Vining traces the complex roots of brutal twentieth-century human experimentation and extermination to worldviews that dehumanize both perpetrators and victims in distinctive ways, stripping them of their individuality as well as their intrinsic dignity and value. Vining finds a disturbing parallel between these worldviews and what he calls total theory. Total theories are beautiful and helpful explanations through attention to system and process that aggressively claim to account for the universe and everything in it. Vining maintains that some of the most gifted intellectuals and scientists of our time profess these theories without necessarily considering the implications of such totalizing worldviews. Using the example of the song sparrow and the child, Vining opens our eyes to the ramifications of total theory. He challenges readers to question casual acceptance of the total theories that are widely and quietly taught in contemporary biology, physics, and mathematics - theories that Vining maintains cannot be and are not actually believed by the people espousing them. This book is an invitation to recall ou

"There are no unsacred places," the poet Wendell Berry has written. "There are only sacred places and desecrated places." What might it mean to behold the world with such depth and feeling that it is no longer possible to imagine it as something separate from ourselves, or to live without regard for its well-being? To understand the work of seeing things as an utterly involving moral and spiritual act? Such questions have long occupied the center of contemplative spiritual traditions. In The Blue Sapphire of the Mind, Douglas E. Christie proposes a distinctively contemplative approach to ecological thought and practice that can help restore our sense of the earth as a sacred place. Drawing on the insights of the early Christian monastics as well as the ecological writings of Henry David Thoreau, Aldo Leopold, Annie Dillard, and many others, Christie argues that, at the most basic level, it is the quality of our attention to the natural world that must change if we are to learn how to live in a sustainable relationship with other living organisms and with one another. He notes that in this uniquely challenging historical moment, there is a deep and pervasive hunger for a less fragmented and more integrated way of apprehending and inhabiting the living world--and for a way of responding to the ecological crisis that expresses our deepest moral and spiritual values. Christie explores how the wisdom of ancient and modern contemplative traditions can inspire both an honest reckoning with the destructive patterns of thought and behavior that have contributed so much to our current crisis, and a greater sense of care and responsibility for all living beings. These traditions can help us cultivate the simple, spacious awareness of the enduring beauty and wholeness of the natural world that will be necessary if we are to live with greater purpose and meaning, and with less harm, to our planet.
