These essays explore the nature of feminine and masculine psychology and the role of story and myth in human culture, and offer insight into the spiritual meaning within modern and classical literature. Several previously unpublished essays are collected here -- including an analysis of two of Shakespeare's greatest plays, "The Merchant of Venice" and "Antony and Cleopatra." The title essay reflects on the vital importance of a sense of humor on the spiritual road to freedom and joy. "Laughter at the Heart of Things" combines Christian spirituality with Jungian psychology to discuss the importance of openly and consciously facing the suffering that is part of being human.

“I’ve never believed that living in one place means being one thing all the time, condemned like Minnie Pearl to wear the same hat for every performance. Life is more complicated than that.” In this remarkable book of days, John Hildebrand charts the overlapping rings—home, town, countryside—of life in the Midwest. Like E. B. White, Hildebrand locates the humor and drama in ordinary life: church suppers, Friday night football, outdoor weddings, garden compost, family reunions, roadside memorials, camouflage clothing. In these wry, sharply observed essays, the Midwest isn’t The Land Time Forgot but a more complicated (and vastly more interesting) place where the good life awaits once we figure exactly out what it means. From his home range in northwestern Wisconsin, Hildebrand attempts to do just that by boiling down a calendar year to its rich marrow of weather, animals, family, home—in other words, all the things that matter.

This book will be of interest to those who work with trauma, who have an interest in understanding new ways of looking at the role of trauma in our lives and finding resolutions to trauma. Vivian Broughton follows the theoretical and practical work of Professor Franz Ruppert, the German psychologist who has devoted his work to understanding the dynamics of trauma. The book sets out a history of trauma study, Ruppert's theories and developments that include early attachment trauma and the transgenerational impact of historical family traumas, and the methodology of the Constellation of the Intention as the means to find resolution from trauma. Vivian brings her own perspective to Ruppert's work including extensive thoughts from a psychotherapeutic perspective. However the book is not overly academic and aims to inform anyone, professional therapist or not, on the general topic of the impact of trauma on the individual and society.

When a loose dog interrupts her daughter's soccer match, small town dog groomer, Colleen Lewis, catches the dog and returns it to its home. There she discovers the murdered bodies of the dog's owners. Overnight, she is misrepresented in the press as a witness to the crime, and Colleen and her daughter, Abbie, find themselves in the sights of a killer. Unable to sleep or to focus at work, Colleen starts looking for some sort of closure, and her attempts only put Abbie and herself in further jeopardy. At the same time, two very different men pursue Colleen -- soccer coach, Diego Fuentes, and local cop, Drew Hayes. Diego is uber-sexy and Abbie thinks the world of him, but years ago, Drew was Colleen's first kiss. Both men are appealing, and Colleen must wade through her feelings while trying to keep herself and her daughter alive until the killer is caught. The Heart of Things is Book One in the Lakeland Series, where simple small town living and heartless crimes sometimes meet. "Stephanie Plum meets The Gilmore Girls."
