Three groups of people come together for a more-or-less godly cruise around the British Isles: to Lindisfarne, the Loch Ness Monster Museum, Iona and Mull, Dublin and the Scilly Isles. There are familiar faces from St Stephens, Dunbridge; some new folk from Neil's new parish in Derbyshire; and the slightly long-suffering crew, not least her skipper. A cruise is a great place to make new friends, with leisure for decent conversations. It can also be an awkward, confined space with those you would really rather avoid. Some of the party are facing tough decisions - not least of which, whether to say 'yes' - and some tensions just cannot be left on land. This book is a delight: full of compassion, humour, and Pam's acute observations.

The early Mormon Church was forced out of several states and finally blazed a trail across unknown territory to Utah to form their own theocracy. In addition to this westward movement, converts in Europe were admonished to "gather to Zion" and build up the Church in the Salt Lake Valley. 85,000 Mormon emigrants came to America by sailing ships between the years of 1840 and 1890. Seven Sisters takes place on one of these ships--the Amazon. Carrying 800 Latter-day Saints, it had a send off from Charles Dickens at the London Docks and landed in New York City a couple of days after the deadliest riot in American History-the Draft Riots of 1863. During the 44 day crossing, there are births, deaths, storms, sea-sickness, accidents, drama, humor, romance, and pure religion. All of this is seen through the eyes of seven single young women who start out the voyage individually and are soon placed together as a "family" by Church leaders. Although, they aren't related as such, they are "sisters" in the Gospel, and together they face the adventures, hardships, and dangers of an ocean voyage.

In the modern era, Christmas and Hanukkah have become widely popular holidays worldwide. The Christian festival of Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ, while Hanukkah celebrates a miracle that took place during biblical times. Although the events recalled in these holidays are unconnected, Christianity and Judaism spring from common traditions and holy books. In fact, their origins are so closely linked that people often refer to a Judeo-Christian tradition or heritage. Both Hanukkah and Christmas take place close to the winter solstice - the shortest day of the year. Each celebration, closely associated with light, provides a source of comfort during the dreary winter months and encourages celebrants to look to the future. Following a description of the origin, history, and customs, Christmas and Hanukkah looks at the unique ways people in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, North America, and Oceania celebrate these holidays.

Blacks In The Dutch World

Blacks in the Dutch World examines the interaction between Black history and Dutch history to gain an understanding of the historical development of racial attitudes. Allison Blakely reveals cracks in the self-image and reputation of Dutch society as a haven for those escaping intolerance. Pervasive images of "the Moor" and "the noble savage" in Dutch art and popular culture; "Black Pete," servant to Santa Claus in Dutch Christmas tradition: these and many other cultural artifacts reflect the racial stereotyping of Blacks that existed in the Dutch world through slavery, servitude, and freedom. Blakely weighs the proposition that factors unique to the modern period have contributed to the creation of this racial imagery in Dutch folklore, art, literature, and religion. By viewing evolving images of Blacks against the backdrop of Western expansion, the agricultural, scientific, and industrial revolutions, and the advent of modern secular doctrines, Blakely discovers that humanism and liberalism, hallmarks of Dutch society since medieval times, have been imperfect against race bias. Blacks in the Dutch World confirms that the existence of color prejudice in a predominantly "white" society does not depend on the presence of racial conflict or even a significant "colored" population. The origins are related to the complex interaction of evolving social, cultural, and economic phenomena.
