The Alice Network is a novel built around the truth of female spies during wartime. Switching between WWI and post-WWII, chapter by chapter, the story traces how one young woman's search for her cousin, who apparently disappeared during WWII, intersects with another young woman's experience as an English spy during WWI. It is also the story of how love can change and cross barriers, and how hate can shatter a life.

"Do not judge a person until you have walked a mile in his moccasins." The Fire Next Time is a chance for a person with white skin to walk a mile in the skin of a person of color. Uncomfortable many times; challenging of old perceptions always. This book is a necessary one if we are to understand the experiences and fears of the people of color whose land we share. It is a vital read if we are to truly become a Beloved Community.

An incredible story of an amazing woman who lived during the 1600s and was part of the first settlement of Puritans. Ms. Seton faithfully told of the original religious/cultural restrictions, and relates some of the events that eventually gave rise to religious freedom.

Narration of Hundred in the Hand was marvelous and done in the story-telling style of my Yaqui friend. The story comes from the indigenous view of events around the battle of the Little Big Horn. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys seeing different views of events.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Perhaps a true history buff might enjoy this book. For me, the story line was presented very dryly and without emotion. The style was a little rambling, so that I had to keep going back and repeating some area. I found the ending abrupt, without closure.
