Carolyn Jourdan, an attorney on Capitol Hill, thought she had it made. But when her mother has a heart attack, she returns homeā€”to the Tennessee mountains, where her father is a country doctor and her mother works as his receptionist. Jourdan offers to fill in for her mother until she gets better. But days turn into weeks as she trades her suits for scrubs and finds herself following hazmat regulations for cleaning up bodily fluids; maintaining composure when confronted with a splinter the size of a steak knife; and tending to the loquacious Miss Hiawatha, whose daily doctor visits are never billed. Most important, though, she comes to understand what her caring and patient father means to her close-knit community. With great humor and great tenderness, Heart in the Right Place shows that some of our biggest heroes are the ones living right beside us.

Have you ever wondered what it's like to be a nurse? From a 5-time Top 10 in the USA author, this book is a collection of the most memorable moments from the careers of over sixty nurses. It covers nearly seventy years of practice from World War II to the present day. The extraordinary situations described here are the result of more than 1,000 years of hands-on bedside knowledge. The vignettes contain wisdom and insight gained the hard way, from long experience in the trenches (sometimes in actual trenches) performing tasks that range from the most humble to the most skilled. These true stories run the gamut from birth to death. They deal with everything from war, ER, ICU, to childbirth, pediatrics, adult care, surgery, home and homeless healthcare, the psych ward, oncology, the nursing home, and finally hospice. The sacrifice and service of these nurses-their courage, kindness, and determination-is breathtaking. If you've ever wanted to know what goes on behind the scenes of a hospital-you've come to the right place.

The author, a wildlife ranger in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, shares "true stories from 'an extraordinary landscape populated with befuddled bears, hormonally-crazed elk, homicidal wild boars, hopelessly timid wolves, and nine million tourists, some of whom are clueless.' In Kim DeLozier's world when sedated wild black bears wake up unexpectedly in the back seat of a helicopter in mid-flight, or in his car as he's driving down the highway, or in his office while he's talking on the phone, it's just another day in the park"--Cover.

"How did a 75-year old Star Trek actor become a social media juggernaut with nearly four million fans on Facebook? Why does everything he posts spread like wildfire across the ether, with tens to hundreds of thousands of likes and shares? And what can other sites, celebrities, brands and companies do to attain his stratospheric engagement levels, which hover near 100 percent while most languish in the single digits? In this candid, hilarious and informative book, Takei recounts his experiences on platforms such as Twitter, YouTube and Facebook, where fans and pundits alike have crowned him King. He muses about everything from the nature of viral sharing, to the taming of Internet trolls, to why Yoda, bacon and cats are such popular memes. Takei isn't afraid to tell it likes he sees it, and to engage the reader just as he does his legions of fans. Both provokingly thoughtful and wickedly funny, Oh Myyy! captures and comments upon the quirky nature of our plugged-in culture. With Takei's conversational yet authoritative style, peppered with some of his favorite images from the web, readers should be prepared to LOL, even as they can't help but hear his words in their heads in that unmistakable, deep bass."--Back cover.

How does a mother cope when she is forced to walk away from her three children and never see them again? 'Whisper My Secret' is the true story of a devoted mother who carried her heartbreaking secret to her grave. Myrtle is eventually rescued from her grief and despair by tall, dark and handsome George Rowley who fell in love with her, offering her romance and enduring love. Myrtle started a new life with George and had seven more children. She buried the grief of losing her first children deep within and kept her pain secret. JB Rowley, an award winning Australian author and one of Myrtle's seven children by her second husband, tells the compelling story of her mother's secret. Desperate to know how such a thing could happen to a caring mother, JB went on a journey to find out. It was a long time before she was able to work out that her mother kept her early life and her first family secret out of misplaced guilt and shame. To redress that, JB decided to tell the whole world her mother's secret as a proud declaration that Myrtle did nothing deserving of guilt or shame. The ebook of this memoir has been a #1 best seller in Amazon's Adoption category.
