Springtime 1985. The Night Stalker murders his way across Los Angeles, but the municipality of Willow Heights isn't too concerned. The 24/7 news coverage of rape and murder is boring compared with the news of fifteen year old Ricardo caught in flagrante delicto with a boy named Steve in the high school parking lot. One by one, relatives, friends, repudiate Ricardo. He'd never been one to feel alone or afraid or be the kind of person who backs down, but when his parents kick him out, Ricardo's not-so-peaceful life is shot to hell. Family is family--Ricardo is too stupid to believe anything otherwise. He means to go back home again, even if he has to bash on a tadpole loser classmate and his God-crazy aunt or be chummy with ruthless gangs. He might even be willing to shed some of his ugly prejudices. Even then, all his determination might not be nearly enough, not when the Night Stalker has dark plans in Willow Heights .... Solace is the first episode of a coming of age suspense serial, featuring amidst the 1980's AIDS scare, a macho gay boy, a tadpole straight boy, and their harrowing encounter with a serial killer.

NPR commentator Mary Sojourner, "a pithy yet sensuous, spiritual yet ferocious writer" (Booklist), delivers a powerful memoir about the joys of rejecting the pace, addictions, and false values of society...and learning to live without compromise. Twenty years ago, Mary Sojourner was a mental health consultant and counselor in Rochester, New York, a divorced mother of three, longing for her real work, her real home. She found it in Flagstaff, Arizona, in a remote two-room cabin that had no running water and only a wood stove for heat, but offered Sojourner everything she needed in terms of light, beauty, joy, and the perfect setting for writing and reconnecting. Solace is a book about obsession and release, and the lifelong search for balance in a world revolving around appetite and acceleration. Written in short, beautifully crafted pieces, the book carries the reader through Sojourner's life, from a restrained Catholic childhood to the excesses of her generation, through motherhood and divorce to her quiet, solitary existence in the Southwest, where she has learned the importance of living at the right pace. Sojourner's voice is as compelling on the page as it is on the radio -- lively, funny, moving, combining the outspoken out-of-stepness of Anne Lamott with the environmental activism and poetic prose of Terry Tempest Williams. In chapters with titles such as "God Is Coming and She Is Pissed" and "How to Leave: Leave," her vivid personality, passion, and sense of humor come through. This is a book for women everywhere -- those who recognize their own truths in Mary's life and younger readers who will find inspiration in her hard-won wisdom.

William lives in a small town with his mother and father. William’s mother, Mona Bell, meets Coretta Cortly, a wealthy society woman, at a charity event, where she explains her son’s problem.

She introduces him to all her fashionable and wealthy friends, and under her guidance, becomes a cult celebrity. Barbara (Babs) Collwood, daughter of famous fashion designer, Charles Collwood, thinks success comes from being seen with all the right people, and William Bell is her new target.

Solace by Atifa Rahman Poetry is a medium of art that offers solace to the soul—a safe haven giving peace of mind, tranquility of thought, serenity of contemplation, and harmony in dissonance. Today, we live in a world where a calamity-stricken situation receives extravagant publicity instead of assistance; where a grieving individual welcomes “likes” on social media instead of words of consolation; where just a click keeps adding new friends to your list who are never there when you need them; and where uninvited comments produce critics, stealthily robbing away emotions such as sympathy, empathy, consideration, solicitude, regard, and so on. Solace seeks to provide readers comfort in varying states of affairs; it is simply an epitome of emotions, an embodiment feelings and personification of sensibilities, which gives an essence of divinity of faith, of purity of love, of assurance and unpredictability of life, of magnificence of beauty, of wholesomeness of friendship, and of consolation in death. It pours out feelings in a way that whoever gets hold of any piece of this collection would not find escape from its relatedness.
