    Henry Townsend, a black farmer, bootmaker, and former slave, has a fondness for Paradise Lost and an unusual mentor, William Robbins, perhaps the most powerful white man in antebellum Virginia's Manchester County. Under Robbins's tutelage, Henry becomes proprietor of his own plantation, as well as of his own slaves. When he dies, his widow Caldonia succumbs to profound grief, and things begin to fall apart.

    When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the US Navy had a total of 111 submarines. It was mostly a collection of aging boats. Fortunately, with the war in Europe was already two years old and friction with Japan ever increasing, help from what would become known as the Silent Service in the Pacific was on the way: there were 73 of the new fleet submarines under construction. The Silent Service in World War II tells the story of America's intrepid underwater warriors in the words of the men who lived the war in the Pacific against Japan.

    Anxiety is one of the biggest killers in the modern age. If you've ever experienced anxiety, panic attacks, phobias or any of the other ways anxiety manifests itself, you'll know just how debilitating it can be. I struggled for years with it and lived my life in constant fear. I wouldn't go out, I wouldn't meet new people, I wouldn't grow as a person. Anxiety had stopped me living my life. Until one day I said, "Enough is enough!" and I made a decision to overcome this horrible affliction, no matter what.
