The Triumph of Rosemary by Marylin E. Atkins
Baby Rosemary – born to an Italian teen and a married black man in Detroit in 1946 – is adopted from an agency by a black couple in Saginaw, Michigan The adoptive mother’s abuse instills in the girl, whom they name Marylin Elnora, ambition to achieve great things on her own. At age 19, Marylin sparks a racial and religious scandal by marrying former Roman Catholic priest Thomas Lee Atkins, who is white and 25 years older. Poor in finances but rich in love, they have two biracial daughters, Elizabeth Ann Atkins and Catherine Marie Atkins Greenspan, who look white. Teamwork makes the family’s dream work as Marylin attends the University of Detroit School of Law at night while she and Tom work full time; he becomes “Mr. Mom”– taking the high-achieving girls to lessons for swim, piano, and skiing. He journals nightly, inspiring the girls’ passion for reading and writing.
1814: It’s the third year of the United States second War of Independence. The British are on the verge of capturing the strategically important port of New Orleans. In the midst of the Americans’ chaotic preparations for battle, three women play key roles in the defense of the city: Catherine, a free woman of color, voodoo priestess, and noted healer personally summoned by General Andrew Jackson; Marguerite, a pampered Creole plantation mistress prone to out-of-body experiences; and Millie, a plucky, patriotic prostitute inspired by her pirate lover to serve in the most dangerous capacity of all. These three women’s lives and fates become intertwined as they join forces to defend their country.
Inspired by the contributions of real-life women during the Battle of New Orleans, The Cards Don’t Lie is a story of love, rebellion, intimacy, betrayal, and heroism in the face of terror and barbaric brutality.
The women of Hope River trust midwife Patience Hester, whose skill in delivering babies is known for miles around. But though the Great Depression is behind them, troubles are not, for Europe is at war…and it can only be a matter of time before the U.S. enters the fray.Patience must support their family and fight for her husband’s release despite her own misgivings. And with need greater than ever, she must also keep her practice running during this tumultuous time…relying on generous friends, like Bitsy, who has returned to Hope River, stalwart neighbors, and her own indomitable strength to see them all through.

No matter what you want to achieve in life, you need money.
School tells us almost nothing about money or how to make it. At best, school tells us how to become an employee. But for many people employment means limited options and low pay. And if you lose your one job, you’re in big trouble. There is another way. BET ON YOURSELF: From zero to millions explains:
•How to create multiple streams of income
•What the stock market is and how it works
•How to get started investing in rental properties
Dr. Hodges shares his personal life lessons, often funny, but always meaningful, from hanging out with crack dealers as a teenager, to being mistaken for Mike Tyson on the other side of the world.
Options were limited for people growing up in Dr. Hodges’ community; most people worked at the local bus factory, went into the military, ended up in jail, or got killed. The first part of this book shows how a poor African American kid failing in high school became a business owner and a respected veterinarian.
Dr. Hodges stresses the importance of making friends wherever you go, and more. Getting fired from his first professional job was a blessing. It taught him to bet on himself, and he never looked back. There are important messages in this book about doing the right thing when no one is looking, the importance of role models, and being nice.
As Dr. Hodges’ favorite rapper Jay-Z said on Moments of Clarity, The Black Album, 2003:
And I can’t help the poor if I’m one of them
So I got rich and gave back to me
That’s the win, win

Sesame Tahini Tea Cookies:
Our Heirloom cookie line celebrates the tradition of passing on recipes from generation to generation, among family & friends. Inspired by her Moroccan grandmother’s Tahini Cookies, our friend Danielle passed on this rich yet delicate recipe for cookies that we can’t. Stop. Eating. Organic tahini- a peanut butter-like paste made from ground, roasted sesame seeds- marries with organic honey and a touch of sea salt to create a beautifully balanced snack cookie that’s as elegant as it is delicious. These salty sweet bites of heaven are made with GMO-free & organic ingredients, enriched with heart-healthy, expeller pressed oil, & Kosher certified.
