A warm and loving Liverpool community come to the rescue of an unhappy young girl. Joan Jonker, beloved author of the Molly and Nellie series, gives a touching insight into the life of a close-knit community in Stay as Sweet as You Are - a story that is sure to stay with you long after you have finished the last page. Perfect for fans of Lindsey Hutchinson and Dilly Court. With the face of an angel and a sunny nature, Lucy Mellor is a daughter any parent would be proud of. But Lucy only knows cruelty from the woman who brought her into the world. Her father, Bob, is the one shining light in her life. He tries to protect her, but he is no match for the devious wife who gives him no peace of mind and has no love for his daughter. The walls of the house are thin and Ruby Mellor's angry attacks on Lucy can be heard by their neighbours. One day, Irene Pollard decides she must do something, and she takes the girl under her wing. And two doors up, Mrs Aggie and her seafaring son, Titch, enrich Lucy's life with their sense of fun. But Lucy still craves a mother's love...

Hilarious and sad. Joan Jonker depicts life as it really is, full of ups and downs. Never in my life have I read a book where I have laughed and cried so much. The dialogue and characters are so witty and life like, they are people that I hope I will come across at some stage during my life. Salt of the earth!'

Roger Sandall s Films and Contemporary Anthropology Excerpt :

A look at a prize-winning documentarian whose work with aboriginal Australians and others united the fields of film and anthropology in the 1960s and ‘70s. In Roger Sandall’s Films and Contemporary Anthropology, Lorraine Mortimer argues that while social anthropology and documentary film share historic roots and goals, particularly on the continent of Australia, their trajectories have tended to remain separate. This book reunites film and anthropology through the works of Roger Sandall, a New Zealand–born filmmaker and Columbia University graduate, who was part of the vibrant avant-garde and social documentary film culture in New York in the 1960s. Mentored by Margaret Mead in anthropology and Cecile Starr in fine arts, Sandall was eventually hired as the one-man film unit at the newly formed Australian Institute of Aboriginal Studies in 1965. In the 1970s, he became a lecturer in anthropology at the University of Sydney. Sandall won First Prize for Documentary at the Venice Film Festival in 1968, yet his films are scarcely known, even in Australia now. Mortimer demonstrates how Sandall’s films continue to be relevant to contemporary discussions in the fields of anthropology and documentary studies. She ties exploration of the making and restriction of Sandall’s aboriginal films and his nonrestricted films made in Mexico, Australia, and India to the radical history of anthropology and the resurgence today of an expanded, existential-phenomenological anthropology that encompasses the vital connections between humans, animals, things, and our environment.

Cooked Up Poetry Excerpt :

Poetry is a short cut to literacy. This book captures the rhyme and rhythm of words. It is about feelings and emotions from the heart. It is about the soul..We feed the soul with poetry. It is about life, as we experience multiculturalism in the melting pot of New York. It describes the flavor of words and beats as they occur on a daily basis in the metropolitan areas of the cities .. Cooked up poetry is about the different ways that people express themselves on a daily basis. It shows the essence of living by lining up passion with poetry. It shows us that we are one in the spirit, and that we can learn from each other in spite of our different ways of living, caring and sharing. The book celebrates cultures as being at the center of everything that we do.

A CINDERELLA JOURNEY FROM SMALL-TOWN KID TO MGM’S SINGING AND DANCING GIRL NEXT DOOR--…BUT WHAT GOT LOST ALONG THE WAY? She was the sweet-faced gal who won our hearts as the spunky heroine of SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS…the all-American beauty who kicked up her heels with Fred Astaire in ROYAL WEDDING. Jane Powell grew up alongside Elizabeth Taylor, Roddy McDowall and Ann Blyth…and she and Liz were bridesmaids at each other’s weddings. But with four marriages and nineteen films behind her, MGM’s golden-voiced Girl Next Door realized she’d never found happiness—or herself—until now. In her own words, Jane Powell gives an unabashed account of her struggle to grow beyond her screen image—after it had been created and torn down by Hollywood. A SPIRITUAL AND EMOTIONAL TRIUMPH! With memorable photos!

Dear Lindy Excerpt :

'This book shows just how far, wide and deep the story of Azaria has gone' Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton The Azaria Chamberlain case was one of the most followed and documented murder trials in our nation's history. And we responded with grief, rage, prejudice and remorse to Lindy directly, through thousands of letters. Here, Alana Valentine uses a selection of the letters sent to Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton to capture Australians' reaction to the loss of Azaria. The court of public opinion made its own ruling in the case, shown in the hurtful, supportive, accusatory or sympathetic letters received by Lindy in prison. Some of the letters are full of vitriol; some include bizarre theories. More are compassionate, sent by mothers, by people of faith or by those who had suffered similar tragedies. We hear Lindy's voice too, in candid conversations with the author. The selection is a time capsule of Australia, a reflection of our attitudes and of how far we've come. These are the letters, poems and works of art we were compelled to send to Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton.
