Against the backdrop of Hummelshof, the author’s family estate in today’s Estonia, the author describes how a large, working estate was managed and the grand but formal lifestyle that was typical of that time and place. But intertwined in her description of elegant country house festivities, she also writes of her childhood at Hummelshof in an atmosphere of strict, Prussian discipline maintained by her mother’s cold, imperial attitude toward the children. Suffering thus from a feeling of rejection and loneliness, the author develops a love of nature and a deep spirituality-""her voices""-which sustain her on many occasions during later years of war and deprivation. The remainder of her memoir is a saga of extraordinary times – World War I, the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia and World War II – during which she repeatedly finds her and her family’s survival in jeopardy, and culminating in the murder of her then former husband and much of his family by the Soviets. Finally, it is in their flight from the Soviets that she leads her elderly parents and young daughter through the burning ruins of Berlin in the last days of Nazi Germany.

I think everyone at times wishes they could be a child again and just play games like hide and seek. Not having to worry about what is going on with the world and what tomorrow will bring. I doubt what we were thinking about as children is the same as a boy named Devan. This story is about an incredible boy that is trying to understand the world around him and the changes within his world. Sometimes change can be good, but then again change can be a bad thing. -D.

From an Edgar Award–winning author: “An enjoyable mystery with a corker of an ending” featuring a Minnesota cop-turned-PI (Booklist). The woman’s words send an icy chill through Minneapolis private investigator Holland Taylor: “If you are listening to this now,” she says, “it is because I am dead.” Speaking calmly, Alison Emerton explains that if she is missing, it is because Raymond Fleck killed her. Fleck, a convicted rapist, lost his job at a humane kennel after Alison accused him of sexual harassment and stalking. The threats began soon after, prompting Alison to buy a gun and record the tape. She vanished soon after, leaving behind her wallet, coat, and boots, on a night when twenty-three inches of snow fell on Minneapolis. Seven months later, her lawyer hires Taylor to find the missing woman. As Taylor digs into Alison’s past, he learns that Raymond Fleck was not the only person who wanted her dead.

The skills required by children’s nurses are many and varied, and are undertaken in a variety of settings. This book provides a clinical manual of common practices. Each practice is research-based and presented in a common format which covers: Objectives, Rationale, Factors to note, Guidelines, Positioning, Equipment, Method, Special observations and possible complications, and References and further reading. The guidelines have been written specifically for children’s nursing by contributors from well-known children’s units. They are not simply adaptations from adult practices and therefore recognise the unique differences between adult and children’s nursing. The introductory section covers common concepts and infection control. There are also appendices on the use of play as a distraction, and on complementary therapies. The common format of each practice makes the book easy to use and refer to in a clinical setting. Each practice is based on the latest research to ensure it is evidence-based and up to date Introductory chapters cover issues common to all practices to make the book easier to use. The appendix on play reinforces its common usage as a distraction technique A chapter on complementary therapies explains these as they are becoming more widespread All practices have been reviewed by regional centres to avoid parochialism Content reorganised to reflect the Essential Skills Clusters from the NMC New chapter on communicating with children All chapters updated to reflect the current evidence base

They were college kids and young soldiers who wanted to fly, and they knew little about Vietnam other than what they read in the newspapers before going there. But Ia Drang, Kontum, Bong Son, Pleiku, Dak To, and dozens of other places soon became their trials by fire as they flew the grunts into and out of hot LZs and exposed themselves to some of the most intense combat of the war. Their mission was to fly into isolated jungle hilltops and muddy rice fields often without knowing what they'd face. Consequently, the crewmen who flew the helicopters and manned the door guns suffered some of the highest percentages of dead and wounded in the history of American warfare.
