Kirsty MacDonald is a crofter on the idyllic Westisle in the Hebrides, an island she now owns. Her son, Wee Ruari, has started school on the mainland, travelling by boat across the Sound to Clachan, and being separated from her son during the week is a wrench for Kirsty. Twice widowed, she misses the boy’s father, who was tragically drowned, and also her husband’s brother, who became her second husband – and secretly loved her. Kirsty is not left entirely alone though. As autumn arrives she is kept busy preparing for the winter and finds herself fully involved in the lives of her fellow islanders: fisherman Jamie, who is like her own son, his friend Euan and new arrival Enac. However, it is the appearance of a Canadian and his daughter that causes the biggest waves in the small community. Kirsty is opposed to change but soon comes to learn that not all change is to be resisted. ‘Her Highland crofters emerge from the pages as true friends’ Mirror

Words, expression and relationships give me the opportunity to connect with someone I will never meet. There are 1,025, 109 words in the English language ... I have only used 80,182 of those words, in 14,792 paragraphs in 22,987 lines. Some rhyme and or form prose designed to put forth a different way of looking at my past situation and reflect on truth or dare in living our life. Jerry L. Rhoads, CPA , CEO All-American Care of Muscatine and Washington, 2002 Cedar Street Muscatine, Iowa 52761 Over the years I have contemplated publishing the poems but always put it off due to a lack of time to translate from paper to digital those thoughts of thirty years past. I have found not one poem dated because they reflected words spoken from my head that focuses on the ideas of times and events that never really change ... just mature, evolve and reoccur if you are to have memories that mean anything. Love, religion, war, peace, work and play all are never going to age just the mode of expression. Today I still have those in 12 three ring binders on yellowing stock and use them to trigger my editing and writing skills into this book. The material is overwhelming since there are about 2,500 poems. Every conceivable word that I saw along the road on billboards, road signs, advertisements, business signs, or heard, etc. triggered a poem onto tape then onto paper. Today I am to converting these to a digital format so I can capture the thoughts and evolve these rough drafts into many more books. I have tried to make the organization somewhat topical focusing on the better material, in my artistic opinion ... yours will by nature be different and that is the power of the written word. My intention in triggering topics and titles is not unconventional but does challenge the reader to believe I know that much about words and very little about conventional poetry. So if you like or dislike the ideas and use of the English language that kept me occupied over 1 million miles in my car so be it.

English First Edition: (with illustrations) Po Chu-I (772-846 CE) vowed his poems would be understood at every social level, so he broke with the poetic habits of the literati in two respects. First, his diction was not merely simple, but sometimes colloquial, and, second, he frequently lamented the economic and social injustices perpetrated on the poor. However, he also ranged freely among traditional subjects, including, as here, the evocation of emotions using natural scenes. In this book, American Poet Laureate, Jean Elizabeth Ward has read, and responded with either Homages to, or Inspired by Po Chu I. Over 300 poems in this lovely book, with the painting of Po Chu I by the author. NOT A TRANSLATION JOURNAL.

Detective Chief Inspector Brian Thomas is no stranger to murder and mayhem, having seen the worst of the worst at crime scenes. Even so, his newest case is different. The son of a millionaire investment banker goes missing-and then, two days after his disappearance, a video arrives on the desks of local media that shows the young man's murder in a highly violent, ritualistic fashion. Thomas thinks the killing may be personal and soon discovers there is no shortage of family members with sound motives for wanting the man dead. Soon, however, another video arrives depicting an apparently unconnected murder by the same chilling method. This is no personal vendetta. Instead, Thomas must go head-to-head with a deranged, merciless killer. In this the fourth novel in the Thomas and Grey detective series, Thomas and Detective Inspector Sheila Grey race against time as they seek to stop a murderer before more lives are lost.
