Summary

While growing older is inevitable, many of the troubles we associate with aging--including dementia, disability, and an increased dependence on others--are not. The choices we make now can help us to maintain our vitality, a sharp mind, and our independence as we age.Filled with simple, everyday actions we can take to avoid disease, promote vitality, and prevent dementia and late onset Alzheimer's, The Aging Brain is an easy-to-use guide to maintaining brain and body health throughout our lives. Based on solid, up-to-date scientific research, the interventions explained in this book not only prevent progression toward dementia even in those who have already shown mild cognitive impairment, they also reduce disability and depression and keep people living independently longer than those who do not practice these methods.For anyone hoping to slow the aging process, as well as anyone who acts as a caregiver to someone at risk of or already beginning to suffer from dementia and other age-related diseases, this book offers a hopeful, healthy way forward.

    Love under Siege shares the tale of a young womans struggles after she overhears a shocking secret and risks everything in a valiant search for her parents, true love, and a new faith.
    
     
    It has been twenty-four years since Violette de la Marne was told her parents were dead. Now as she stands beside her Grand-Pere Philippes death bed, she clutches the only thing she has left from her parents a golden locket and waits for him to take his last breath. But before he does, she overhears him reveal a shocking secret during a confession to a bishop: he has lied to Violette for years, fearing he would lose her to the Huguenots. Her parents are alive.
    
     
    Betrayed by her Grand-Pere and betrothed to a man she does not love, Violette derives strength from the locket, rejects the arranged marriage, and embarks on a determined quest through sixteenth century France to find her parents who may be imprisoned in Paris. Drawn to the Huguenots who promise intimacy with God and assurance of salvation, Violette continues to hope for a marriage built on love, trust, and faith. With the help of God and the handsome rogue, Thomas Montmorency, her search eventually propels her into the immoral and promiscuous court of Henry II and Catherine de Medici where she must hide the truth to avoid persecution and death.
