That fateful September morning started out like any other. The skies were a gorgeous blue, nothing like the gray hell they would appear hours later. Joann Namorato was only working in Downtown Manhattan to help alleviate some of the costs of putting two of her three children through college. Despite the financial ease that working in New York City would provide, she feared that a terrorist bombing like the one in 1993 would occur. However, after consulting with friends and family, she came to the conclusion that a second attack on the same location was highly unlikely. The Long Road Home is an eyewitness account of the events of September 11, 2001, through the eyes and heart of a woman whose greatest fear was taking place right in front of her. Was it possible that the heart-wrenching lessons of courage she had learned during her painful childhood turned out to be the overwhelming factor in guiding her out of the city that day? Follow us through this woman's incredible life journey and see how the events of 9-11-01 have changed her life and the lives of so many others forever.

Florida has been called "The State Without A Soul." The people that moved to Florida left their roots at the place they came from. This history of the long ago features people with their roots who were born here, walked the sands of time and will be buried here at the Cedars of Lebanon Cemetery. Their headstones already mark the spot where their roots will remain for eternity. Dessie Smith Prescott, whose picture is in the "Women's Hall of Fame" in Tallahassee said, "If you find yourself on a back road, get off and walk the main road." Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings is also in the Hall of Fame because Dessie helped her to survive long enough to write "The Yearling" and many other Florida books. Some of the history tells of the memories and roots that people brought to this area to build "The State With A Soul." This book is written so that the old stories don't get lost. It links the threads together of the Soul or Spirit of Florida.

At the end of the Revolutionary War, James Steven James settled the land around Long Pond, a 101.9-acre, spring-fed lake tucked away in Northwood, New Hampshire. Once a working farm, the land was later divided and became Long Pond Estates. In Memories of Long Pond, author Irene E. DuPont shares the history of the development and the growth of Long Pond. DuPont's family purchased a cottage on the lake more than thirty-eight years ago; it was a place where they could enjoy swimming, hiking, fishing, and just getting away from the city. In this memoir, she provides a plethora of details about this lake, including the stories of the James family, the DuPont family, and the other property owners who have made this area their home. Memories of Long Pond gives insight into the Long Pond area, a growing community that provides much in the way of history of family lives-with building, feuding, and moving on toward the future.

Dame Nellie Melba (1861-1931) was one of the most famous sopranos of her time. Born in Australia, Melba began her training in Melbourne but moved to Europe in 1882 to start her career. She found success in Brussels as Gilda in Verdi's Rigoletto and was soon well known throughout the continent's opera houses. She debuted at the Metropolitan Opera in New York in 1893. Her repertoire extended over twenty-five roles, and she was regarded as unmatched in ten of these, continuing to perform throughout her life, in concert recitals as well as in opera, to great acclaim, and becoming one of the earliest modern 'celebrities'. In this autobiography, published in 1925, Melba describes her childhood and her journey from the 'great Australian Bush' to the bright lights of the European and American stage, while also giving a colourful, first-hand account of the world of opera.
