When Beau Delaney, the Halifax hotshot whose exploits are the subject of a new Hollywood film, is charged with the murder of his wife Peggy, it’s lawyer and bluesman Monty Collins who takes the case. But when Beau’s family dynamics and the appearance of a mysterious child alert Monty that his client is keeping secrets, others join in to help keep Beau from a life in prison. Monty’s pal, Father Brennan Burke, has a hand in the investigation, as does Monty’s estranged wife, Maura. Watching all this is Normie, Monty and Maura’s daughter, who has the gift of second sight. When she starts having visions that involve Beau, she can’t tell whether they reflect something he’s done in the past—or something he might do in the future. It then becomes clear that Normie and Monty must rely on each other to discover the truth about Peggy’s death.

This collection brings together a selection of poetry from Faustin Charles’s previous works as well as many new poems from this important voice in Caribbean poetry. As a Trinidadian whose writing career has been spent in the United Kingdom, Charles is a pioneer of the diasporic consciousness whose work has sought to uncover what is essential in the Caribbean cultural heritage and explore the experience of separation and the establishment of new connections. The new poems from this volume focus on the lives of the young with a Blakean concern for the quality and integrity of childhood experience. These are both songs of innocence and experience, of what ought to be, and, as in “Stephen’s Song,” of a young life snuffed out by racism.

Beau Delaney is a bit of a showboat, a prominent lawyer whose exploits have become the subject of a Hollywood film. He's also the father of ten children (many adopted). Now he's charged with the murder of his wife, Peggy. It's another hard case for lawyer and bluesman Monty Collins. His client is keeping secrets; a mysterious eleventh child turns up and demands to take part in the trial; and the last words anyone heard from Peggy were "the Hells Angels!" Monty isn't alone in trying to save Delaney from life in prison, and save his sprawling family from breaking up. Monty's pal, Father Brennan Burke, has a hand in the investigation, too. But Burke is also lending a hand to Monty's estranged wife, Maura. And the priest finds himself burdened with unwelcome secrets of his own when Maura's old flame arrives on the scene and threatens to turn her world upside down. Watching all this through the eyes of a child is Monty and Maura's little girl, Normie. Like her spooky grandmother in Cape Breton, Normie has the gift of second sight. When she starts having visions that seem to involve Beau Delaney, she can't tell whether they reflect something he's done in the past, or something he might do in the future. We hear the story from two points of view, experience and innocence, Monty and Normie, and ask ourselves which of them will be first to uncover the truth about Beau Delaney. Children in the Morning is the fifth book in Emery's acclaimed series featuring Monty Collins.

These prayers, inspired by traditional morning and evening prayer with guidance from The Rule of St. Benedict, offer families the opportunity to pray in continuity with Christian tradition while keeping prayers short and familiar so that children will stay engaged. With a one-week cycle of prayers, this shorted from of the daily office allows families to grow in the practice of daily prayer and prepare to graduate to the longer prayers of the Christian tradition as children mature. Acclaim for this book: "Craig Katzenmiller's short book Morning and Evening Prayer for Parents and Children meets a central need for parents of children ages 4-12 who desire to lead morning and evening prayers as a family. Until now liturgical materials available to parents have tended to offer such lengthy offices that children could easily perceive the time as a dreaded chore rather than holy and blessed family time. "Katzenmiller's effort to reduce each typical half-hour office leaves the structure intact while shortening basic elements and suggesting a few optional readings and hymns. Four appendices include examples for various options. "What I see clearly in this effort is a father's heart for his children. Katzenmiller has spent many hours adapting adult-level materials for his beloved children-so that they may enter in, absorb, and participate more fully in these rich, formative Christian practices, and, ultimately, receive a lifetime of blessing." - Holly Allen, Professor of Family Science and Christian Ministries (Lipscomb University); President of The Society for Children's Spirituality: Christian Perspectives (Children's Spirituality Conference); and co-author of Intergenerational Christian Formation; Bringing the Whole Church Together in Ministry, Community, and Worship "Morning and Evening Prayer for Parents and Children is a much-needed resource for families like mine who desire to immerse our children daily in the life and prayers of the church. Its weekly rhythm will quickly become familiar, offering a rich source of hope for both children and parents." - C.
