Never a City so Real; a Walk in Chicago, Alex, Kotlowitz
1 Alex, Kotlowitz Never a City so Real; a Walk in Chicago
1400046211 / 9781400046218; Chicago is one of America's most iconic, historic, and fascinating cities, as well as a major travel destination. Chicago, like America, is a kind of refuge for outsiders. It's probably why the author found comfort there. This book is not so much a tour of a place as a chronicle of its soul, its lifeblood. It is a tour of the people of Chicago, who have been the author's guides into this city's - and in a broader sense, this country's - heart. The jacket has a water mark on the inside at the bottom spine. It doesn't seem to have affected the book but shows through to the front a wee bit.. The inside front has a map of the neighborhoods - the back names all of them. ; Octavo (standard book size); 160 pages

Jeffrey is trained to be Buckingham's spy in the household of Charles's seventeen-year-old bride, hoping to gain intelligence that will help him undermine the vivacious queen's influence with the king. Dropped into a family of misfits, he must negotiate a labyrinth of court iintrigue and his own increasingly divided loyalties. The dwarf, though only eighteen inches tall and despite the dangers of a tumultuous kingdom, Jeffery Hudson's love will reach far beyond his grasp - to the queen he has been sent to destroy. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 372 pages

7 Hieber, Leanna Renee The Eterna Files
076533674X / 9780765336743; It is the time of Queen Victoria. Spiritualism is all the rage on both sides of the Atlantic. Some consider ghosts and spirits so much nonsense, but others know that powerful supernatural forces are being brought to bear on England and the United States. A secret group was formed within the American government when Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. It's purpose was to attempt to bestow both invulnerability and immortality on the country's leader. Eterna was made up of scientists, theologians, magicians and philosophers. Their research was about to bear fruit when the entire team was wiped out in a singly, otherworldly stroke. Queen Victoria became involved by appointing an excellent detective. Spies and counterspies, betrayals and hauntings, secret plots and unusual results from combining new technologies with ancient powers have set the British and Americans on a collision course, unaware that a far greater menace looms over them all. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 319 pages

Lost Without My Daughter, Mahmoody, Sayed
9 Mahmoody, Sayed Lost Without My Daughter
1909869791 / 9781909869790; In 1987, a book was published by Betty Mahmoody titled "Not Without My Daughter." In it she claimed that she had been kidnapped and held like a prisoner by her husband in Iran. The book was compelling and made into a movie of the same name. This volume, written by the husband and father of their daughter, talks of a once happy family's collapse and his search for meaning in his life. It is also a cultural and political history of Iran, from the revolution to present. It is, more than anything, an exercise in truth, the last-ditch effort of a father desperate to reach his daughter, to let her know that he is not the monster he has been portrayed to be. Dr. Mahmoody worked in America for more than twenty years and had a successful practice. In 1984 the family mooved to Iran; he never remarried after Betty left him, and he passed away unexpectedly in August 2010.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 153 pages
