Full of Grace

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/audiobook/full-of-grace-9...
The rich atmosphere of South Carolina, Hilton Head and Charleston, is brought vividly to life by Dorothea Benton Frank, a South Carolina native who, with her exquisitely evocative prose, makes you smell the sea air, see the palmettos, and savor the sweet tea, but this time it comes with a side of antipasti. Hilton Head, a South Carolina retirement heaven-at least it's supposed to be, but for Big Al and Connie Russo, the move from New Jersey to this southern paradise has been fraught with just a few complications. Especially for their daughter, Grace. Well, that's what she likes to be called. Her family insists on Maria Graziella. Seriously, enough with the Neapolitan. That might have been okay in New Jersey, but now it's just plain silly, and Grace at thirty-two is, horror of horrors, still unmarried. No wonder her family drives her crazy. Well, that and the fact that she's living with the man she would marry if they both weren't so commitment phobic. Michael is a doctor and a scientist and Grace is pretty sure he's also an atheist. Over the years, Grace has become a bit ambivalent about her faith, but her family is as old-fashioned Italian as they come. So the stage is set for a major showdown that just might change Grace's outlook on life, family, and the New South.

Winter Lyric

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/winter-lyric...
An infectious little Gem" -Whispering Stories Elliot Stephenson is thirty years old, an out-of-work jazz musician eking his way through life, haunted by an aimless past filled with alcoholism, psychotropic drug use, and missed opportunities with the women he loved. He isn't sure he ever made much sense to the world, let alone himself, and the only thing that ever made things clearer was writing, so he begins writing a book. He's been clean for two years, going to church, finishing college, and for the first time. he's madly in love with a woman-Sarah Benton-and she seems to love him back. Sarah is his first love. She's ten years younger and reminds him of when his life had no limit to the possibilities of pleasure-seeking and living each night to the fullest-other than a wicked hangover. In their drunken romance, Elliot finally puts pen to paper, makes his love for Sarah the subject, and gives us Winter Lyric-a story of how his first experience of romantic love escalates into a transformative magical reality, with Sarah at the heart of it all. Elliot connects his entire life in Winter Lyric in such a profound way that he is awestruck, even by the brilliant synchronicity of his time with Sarah coming to an end, as inevitably as any first true love does. -Foreword by Neal O'Reilly

Free Hearts and Free Homes

https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/free-hearts-and-free...
By exploring the intersection of gender and politics in the antebellum North, Michael Pierson examines how antislavery political parties capitalized on the emerging family practices and ideologies that accompanied the market revolution. From the birth of the Liberty party in 1840 through the election of Republican Abraham Lincoln in 1860, antislavery parties celebrated the social practices of modernizing northern families. In an era of social transformations, they attacked their Democratic foes as defenders of an older, less egalitarian patriarchal world. In ways rarely before seen in American politics, Pierson says, antebellum voters could choose between parties that articulated different visions of proper family life and gender roles. By exploring the ways John and Jessie Benton Fremont and Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln were presented to voters as prospective First Families, and by examining the writings of Harriet Beecher Stowe, Lydia Maria Child, and other antislavery women, Free Hearts and Free Homes rediscovers how crucial gender ideologies were to American politics on the eve of the Civil War.
