In 1952, fresh out of high school, I am lured by three friends to enroll in a Catholic school of nursing when I have no desire of becoming a Florence Nightingale. At seventeen I am more interested in... More > fashion and art. In this memoir I share my joys, my hurts, my faith, my fears, and innermost thoughts. Two stories interweave in this tale—of my personal and spiritual growth where I am nearly ripped apart by the tri-fold pull of family, lover, and the Sisters of Charity in my quest for the black band. The events that changed the group of fun-loving teenagers, raised in the foot-hills of Kentucky into mature, bone-tired angels of mercy, and the tender love story that is prominently threaded throughout the pages read like fiction. But this story of tears and laughter is true. I have remembered it all—the good and the bad, and have told it here without alteration.< Less

Daddy Do Right By Julie Miliner
Paperback: $17.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Daddy Do Right is the story of a baller and a shot caller named John Drake who believes he is God’s gift to woman. In Daddy Do Right, he’s presented as a meticulous womanizer who vainly... More > plays games with the woman in his life. He toys with their feelings, expectations, and ultimately the most vulnerable product of many of his fly by night unions, their children. He finds out as the story unwinds that the game he’s playing can’t be won and he's forced to play a new game, one that jolts him into realty and forward to what may be his greatest success. An interesting point made by this author is what happens to men when they don’t grow up to face the reality of fatherhood. Her story suggests that their growth is stunted just as the child’s is when they don’t step up and do the right thing. Her writing is crisp and seamless and puts the reader into the middle of the action. There are some very funny moments and if you’re a parent you’ll remember when you were where he is.< Less
