Toby Hawthorne was an enigma. One I didn't factor into my college plans. I wasn't looking for love. I wasn't not looking for it either. And in that state of in-between, he found me. Unaware of the battle he fought everyday, I fell fast. By the time I found out, it was too late. Because I wanted everything. Every broken, lost part of him. I knew I couldn't fix him. I could only love him. But I should've known better than to think that was enough.

He becomes a famous musician, battles substance abuse, has a nervous breakdown, and marries two other women (one commits suicide). The girl lives a roller coaster of her own. She marries a businessman who dies in his sleep at 60, leaving a tangled web of bankruptcy and IRS demands for millions in back taxes. Despite all the broken promises and shattered dreams, the boy and girl find proper ways to stay connected until they die. Fittingly, they are buried in the same cemetery, not far from each other.

Donnitta Figures (best known as Muggie) had big dreams. She dreamt of graduating from high school, buying a car, renting an apartment, and attending college. But before she realized most of those dreams, Muggie died. For years, she had suffered from an illness inherited from her father's side of the family, but her family thought the symptoms were being treated and managed by medicine. Muggie's death devastated her family, especially her mother, Mary Ann Figures, who felt the two were as close as sisters. In this memoir, Figures provides her personal testimony on how she dealt with her daughter's sudden death. Bittersweet Journey narrates how reading the Bible helped Figures deal with the gamut of emotions she experienced grief, loneliness, fear, and guilt. Honest and emotional, Bittersweet Journey discusses the challenges one mother faced after the death of her child and how she overcame them and developed a closer relationship with God. It shows how she was able to reclaim her life and start living in the now.

Bittersweet Destiny combines discourse on the evolution of human behavior with a philosophical perspective. It explores evolutionary theory aimed at determining human behavior. Del Thiessen presents this material against the broad background of everyday life, allowing the reader to see the theory of evolution as it has shaped his or her own behavior. However, he points out that when evolutionary theory is aimed at human behavior, the critics object, and controversy results. Thiessen argues that nothing in our lives makes sense unless we look at it through a biological lens. We can thereby understand our origin, our affiliation with all animals and plants, and our cultural destination. However, we can also discover a dark side to our destiny—our favoritism to those who share our own genes, our ability to deceive, and our capacity for abuse, rape, and murder. Good, bad, and indifferent, we serve the replication of our DNA. Critics extrapolate evolutionary theory to a wide range of animal species, and even human morphology and physiology, but when the same perspective is applied to human behavior there is strong dissent. What these critics fear, according to Thiessen, is that accepting evolutionary notions about human behavior strikes at the heart of free will, self-determination, and social equality. Bittersweet Destiny describes the heroic efforts of naturalists Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace to unlock the secrets of evolution. It continues with a vivid description of our fossil history and our chance beginnings. From there the story implicates disease processes in evolution, highlights our rational and irrational nature, focuses on those characteristics of brain evolution and language that make us distinctive, and illustrates our most basic survival and reproductive mechanisms. Thiessen warns the reader that things are as they are no matter what we might wish; we ignore facts and controversy at our own risk. This book will be significant to anthropologists, psychologists, biologists, and sociologists.

Colleen McCullough’s new, romantic Australian novel about four unforgettable sisters taking their places in life during the tumultuous years after World War I is “just as epic as her ultra-romantic classic, The Thorn Birds” (Marie Claire). Because they are two sets of twins, the four Latimer sisters are as close as can be. Yet each of these vivacious young women has her own dream for herself: Edda wants to be a doctor, Grace wants to marry, Tufts wants never to marry, and Kitty wishes to be known for something other than her beauty. They are famous throughout New South Wales for their beauty, wit, and ambition, but as they step into womanhood at the beginning of the twentieth century, life holds limited prospects for them. Together they decide to enroll in a training program for nurses—a new option for women of their time. As the Latimer sisters become immersed in hospital life and the demands of their training, each must make weighty decisions about love, career, and what she values most. The results are sometimes happy, sometimes heartbreaking, but always…bittersweet. Set against the background of a young and largely untamed nation, “filled with humor, insight, and captivating historical detail, McCullough’s latest is a wise and warm tribute to family, female empowerment, and her native land” (People).
