At the end of a long, hard day's work, Esther can stand in the barn doorway and survey her beautiful Perry Farm with a sense of contentment. She lost her father in the Civil War, and she, her mother and her sister are three women alone. Yet she could not be happier with her hands in the soil and her heart in the land. She plans to marry a handsome farm-hand and rule over her little kingdom like a queen.Yet dark days are ahead. With deepest sorrow, she loses her mother to the wracking coughing disease of tuberculosis. Esther and her sister Lara suddenly face a crushing debt on their farm, too mountainous to overcome. A greedy neighbor shoves a mortgage deed in front of Esther, forcing her to sign. What will happen to her? How will she take care of Lara? With no home or family, the Perry sisters are orphaned and alone. On the final afternoon of owning her farm, Esther greets a strange guest. The haughty woman and her grand carriage are out of place in a farm town like Bayview, Maine. She introduces herself as Lucia Curtis and informs them she is their aunt. Esther and Lara are shocked - their mother never mentioned a sister. Aunt Curtis has an incredible proposal: she will take the Perry girls to Portland, Maine and give them a place to live for six months. Farewell to Perry Farm, and a new life awaits Esther and Lara in Portland. There will be cousins to meet, an uppity social circle to move amongst, and a handsome architect proclaimed as the most eligible bachelor in the city. Yet Aunt Curtis has her own plans for Esther. Will Esther be able to overcome her sorrows and find a new happiness in Portland? Can she attract Henry Vallencourt's admiration before he makes an ill match? And what of her mysterious uncle and the secrets behind the locked bedchamber?

In his trilogy of memoirs that includes Once Upon A Time When We Were Colored, The Last Train North, and Watching Our Crops Come In, Clifton Taulbert introduced us to a host of relatives and friends--affectionately known as the porch people--who were an integral part of his upbringing in his native Glen Allan, Mississippi. Although these people were limited in financial resources, they were rich in love and wisdom and taught him lessons that proved to be invaluable. Using his own success as proof that by building strong communities, we build strong individuals, Taulbert revisits these elders and their lessons in Eight Habits of the Heart : Embracing the Values that Build Strong Families and Communities (Penguin Books; January 5, 1999; $9.95). Eight Habits of the Heart grew out of a commencement speech that Taulbert delivered in 1995 at the North Shore Country Day School in Winnetka, Illinois. Wanting to leave a lasting impression on America's future leaders, but not knowing exactly what to say, Taulbert illustrated the community building practices that he learned from Poppa Joe, Ma Ponk, Preacher Hurn, and others in his beloved Mississippi Delta. He realized that a lot of the good will that these people showed one another was habitual and was offered out of love and respect. And that if we all practiced those same acts of kindness-- habits of the heart--in our day-to-day lives, not only would we build a strong community for ourselves and future generations, but we would have the potential to build a strong nation.With rich and poignant personal stories, Clifton Taulbert illustrates each habit and shows readers how to embrace these values:Nurturing Attitude: "Unselfish caring, supportiveness, and a willingness to share time" despite hardships; the ability to give our children "the best of what has been provided to us." Dependability: "Being there for others through all the times of their lives, a steady influence that makes tomorrow a welcome event." Responsibility: "Showing and encouraging a personal commitment to each task." Friendship: The ability to bind together and "take pleasure in each other's company." Listening, laughing, and sharing good times and bad. Brotherhood: Reaching beyond comfortable relationships "to extend a welcome to those who may be different from yourself." High Expectations: "Believing that others can be successful, telling them so, and praising their accomplishments." Courage: "Standing up and doing the right thing, speaking out on behalf of others, and making a commitment to excellence in the face of adversity or the absence of support."Hope: "Believing in tomorrow--because you have learned to see with your heart." Taulbert also includes a series of "Exercises for Reflection" that can be used by families, businesses, schools, worship groups, reading clubs, and others to help motivate the building of stronger relationships and communities. His voice shines through as a refreshing guide to the spiritual core we as a society seem always to be seeking.

Designed to meet the needs of high school students, undergraduates, and general readers, this encyclopedia is the most comprehensive reference available on African American literature from its origins to the present. Other works include many brief entries, or offer extended biographical sketches of a limited selection of writers. This encyclopedia surpasses existing references by offering full and current coverage of a vast range of authors and topics. While most of the entries are on individual authors, the encyclopedia gathers together information about the genres and geographical and cultural environments in which these writers have worked, and the social, political, and aesthetic movements in which they have participated. Thus the encyclopedia gives special attention to the historical and cultural forces that have shaped African American writing. - Publisher.
