He Stole the Work She Loved. Will She Let Him Steal Her Heart as Well? It's all her uncle's fault. For years Charlotte Withersby has been free to pursue her love of plants and flowers by assisting her botanist father. But now that she's reached the old age of twenty-two, an intrusive uncle has convinced her father that Charlotte's future--the only proper future for a woman--is to be a wife and mother, not a scholar. Her father is so dependent on her assistance that Charlotte believes he'll soon change his mind...and then Edward Trimble shows up. A long-time botany correspondent in the South Pacific, Trimble arrives ready to step in as assistant so that Charlotte can step out into proper society--a world that baffles her with its unwritten rules, inexplicable expectations, and confounding fashion. Things aren't perfectly smooth between Trimble and her father, so Charlotte hatches a last gasp plan. She'll pretend such an interest in marriage that the thought of losing her will make her father welcome her back. Only things go quickly awry, and she realizes that the one man who recognizes her intelligence is also the person she's most angry with: Edward Trimble, her supposed rival. Suddenly juggling more suitors than she knows what to do with, Charlotte is caught in a trap of her own making. Will she have no choice but to leave her beloved flowers behind?

A strong sense of place and its impact on our lives runs through this collection of twenty stories and two one-act plays. Spooner begins with Chasin the Bird, a story of brotherly love and near tragedy set in San Francisco, the music of an aged street performer providing the soundtrack. In a Sacramento suburb, And Spare Them Not is a tale of vengeance for the murder of a ten-year-old girl. In the mythical town of Millers Forge, Fireworks for Mickey tells of a family forced to deal with death and unresolved issues from the past. Spooner closes with Moral Imperative, a story of moral and ethical choices set in Orange County, California, fireworks from Disneyland booming in the distance. Places leave an indelible mark on our lives, but do we leave a mark on the places weve been? This is the central question in C. W. Spooners second collection of short stories. Aging, wisdom, remorse, poignancy, what it means to be a man in a changing worldits all there in twenty-two unforgettable stories, told with elegance and sensitivity. I picked up the book on a sunny morning, looking for a brief diversion, and didnt put it down until Id finished (Casey Dorman, editor, Lost Coast Review, author of I, Carlos, Finding Martin Bloom, and Murder in Nirvana).

One day a windflower bloomed suddenly in the void and disappeared after dancing for a while. The coming and going of life is like a windflower. To be alive is already a favor. It is a vacant truth, facing with black and white. It is beautiful to become itself as in the course of looking for the good in order to become one thing. People can be happy in the life born alone and left alone because there is a hometown to return to and a friend to accompany. Where is the hometown to return to, and who is a friend to accompany?—that is a question rising someday. As each flower’s color is different, an answer to life varies according to each person. People have to find the key to the secret approaching closer to the mysterious life by themselves because the key to the secret varies multifariously with the times and wise men’s instruction. What is the secret of the mysterious life that nobody teaches though everybody wants to know while alive?

Cometh Up As A Flower

An important sensation novel, Cometh Up as a Flower made Rhoda Broughton’s reputation and fortune while also attracting harsh criticism. Nell LeStrange, the heroine, is tricked by her calculating sister into leaving her poor lover and marrying a wealthy man she does not love. What angered critics of the time was the heroine’s frank discussion of her sexual attraction to her lover, and her dispassionate evaluation of loveless marriage as a form of self-sale. Broughton’s lively, colloquial narrative voice, witty observations of contemporary manners, and sympathetic portrayal of the lives and feelings of young women, though no longer shocking, are as engaging now as they were to her readers of 1867. This Broadview Edition includes an extensive selection of appendices on the novel’s reception (including a parody of Broughton), Victorian discourses on health and medicine, and contemporary attitudes towards women, marriage, and sexuality.

Opens Like A Flower Cut It With A Knife

At some point in our lives, we will encounter a life-changing moment when we are forced to question our very existence. For me, it was when I found my thirty-year-old son, for no apparent reason, dead on his bed on an otherwise ordinary Monday morning. I have written this book with the hope that it can help someone else through their own loss and grief. The death of a child, at whatever age, is the most tragic experience for a parent, especially if the death is sudden. It's like a part of our body has been cruelly torn off. We will never get over the death of our child, nor should we have to. Our lives will never be the same. We will think about our child every day for the rest of our lives, and we will continue with a background ache for our child. But I have found out that we can heal from the trauma and the excruciating pain, and we can even laugh again. To heal well, we have to alter our views, our values, our attitudes, and our relationships. Expect that healing is a process which will take time. The first step in the healing process, was for me to learn to forgive and love myself for having outlived my beloved son, and having gone against the expected order of things. It was not my doing, and it was not within my control - It's just life!I had to accept that my son's death can never be undone. And I faced the painful truth that to be born is to die, and that life gave me no choice as to when, how or who died first. Grief is devastatingly painful. It can either leave us with anger and bitterness or can be used as a new awareness to give a realistic perspective and meaning to our lives. Viktor Frankl, in his book, 'Man's Search for Meaning', wrote about his life as a Nazi concentration camp prisoner where he chose to transform his darkest despair into a search for meaning and he said, 'It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us.' Our most difficult moments are our best teachers; for it is only when we encounter life-shattering moments, that we can see things as they truly are. But only if we become awakened by the tragedy and pick ourselves up - realising that we ourselves must make the effort to walk the path. 'Opens like a flower, cut it with a knife' is also the title of a song written by my son, Brian, some five years before he died. I came across this song only after he died. When I examined the lyrics, I felt it was almost as if my son, knew that he would have a short life and had left me insights on how to deal with life without him through his song. It helped me understand that although grief cuts deep like a knife and leaves a gaping hole in your heart; it is nonetheless, the very source from which a flower can bloom. It is only when you come to acceptance of your grief that paradoxically, beautiful insights can arise. But this can only happen if we are prepared to delve deeper to investigate the meaning of it all - each for ourselves. I learned through the depths of sadness that before you can know kindness at its deepest levels, you must first understand suffering in its darkest places. Through my most difficult times, I understood the significance of the Triple Gem in my life - the Buddha as the best physician; the Dhamma as medicine; and the Sangha, as mentors for me not just to survive, but to emerge a better person. I only wish I could have gone through this journey without the death of my son but this is the journey that has been thrust upon me, albeit not by choice. Happiness and grief are part of human existence.
