Summary

When they were young, Susan and Edna, children of Holocaust refugee parents, were inseparable; Edna was Susan’s first love and constant companion. But as they grew up and Edna’s physical, and mental challenges altered the ways she could develop, a gulf formed between them. Susan’s life became even more complicated when, just short of her sixteenth birthday, she learned that she’d been born without a uterus and would never menstruate or give birth to children. As she coped with this trauma, Edna continued loving her unconditionally, as she always had.

In her adult years Edna lived a life of dignity in a spiritual community, becoming a model for how Susan could live hers. In her forties, Susan realized her dream of motherhood when she adopted a daughter. Throughout, Edna remained a teacher and loving presence in her sister’s life.  

Encompassing Susan and Edna’s lifelong, complex, intertwining relationship, Edna’s Gift has a powerful message: life may be unpredictable, even traumatic—but if you remain open, strength and wisdom will come to you from surprising and unexpected sources.

    A Thirst for Blood - The True...

    The “fast-paced” inside story of the manhunt for bloodsucking serial killer Richard Chase (Publishers Weekly).  Written by the case’s lead homicide detective, this gripping true crime account details the killing spree of one of California’s most gruesome murderers: Richard Chase, aka “the Vampire of Sacramento.” In January 1978, Sacramento police found the corpse of Teresa Wallin, a loving wife and soon-to-be mother. Veteran detective Lt. Ray Biondi immediately knew the case would be unlike anything he had ever seen before.   The victim’s body was deliberately disfigured in nightmarish ways, and evidence suggested the culprit had collected large volumes of her blood. In less than a month, a two-year-old boy was missing, and two men, another woman, and a five-year-old child dead, their bodies contorted, like Wallin’s, to fulfill the killer’s demented sexual desires, and—most disturbingly—his taste for human blood.   Previously published as The Dracula Killer, A Thirst for Blood is a riveting report of the investigation, from eyewitness testimonies to the discovery of the crime scenes to Chase’s interrogation. Lieutenant Biondi and his coauthor, Walt Hecox, provide an unflinching look at the “vampire killer” and the cunning police work that finally put an end to his reign of terror. The inspiration for Investigation Discovery’s Lore: Deadly Obsession and episodes of CSI and Criminal Minds, Chase’s crimes continue to haunt the world generations later.

    MEN: If You Want to Naturally Last as Long as You Want in Bed Without Drugs and Permanently Cure Premature Ejaculation in No Time, Then This Is All You’ll Ever Need – Guaranteed! 
     
    Calm down and put a smile on your face. You are not the only one. I know “exactly” what you’re going through and this book is 100% the cure with a solid guarantee. Don’t worry, be happy. You’ll see for yourself soon.
     
    The day I smooched a girl, I ejaculated in my pants in less than 69 seconds. That day was one of my worst days and I vowed to handle this part of my life once and for all. I was so embarrassed.
     
    I'll save you from your bedroom depression and frustration.
     
    Investing in your sex life is an investment for your future. Some people will discourage you by saying, "Make money first, or go to school first."
     
    Both are good advice, but your ego will be shattered when you suck with women in general and mostly in bed.
     
    You will be tired of tramadol, alcohol, Viagra, marijuana, cocaine, codeine, or any other substances you believe in. Remember, most of them have side effects.
     
    Why not acquire these skills naturally? One day, you'll travel abroad and may not get your local enhancer there.
     
    Think of the money you waste on paying for sex with women just to get in their panties or get them to love you.
     
    Or, the money you spend on buying sexual enhancers and substances. Calculate the money for a year and you’ll see how much you’ve been wasting.
    
     
    When you have this skill,
     
    * The table will turn
     
    * Women will be the ones spending on you just to have a taste.
     
    Lasting long enough to make a woman have an orgasm or squirt is more gratifying than being in the office.
    
     
    When your woman is satisfied,
     
    * You will feel great about yourself and
     
    * You will do things you have never done before with joy
     
    * It will boost your confidence.
     
    Who doesn't want to last longer in bed? All men want to be the men who always rock their women at any given time.
     
    If you cannot last long enough for your woman to reach an orgasm and fulfill her sexual needs, then she'll find it somewhere else, and you know what that means?
    
     
    So, do all your learning now. With Lasticle:
     
    * You'll start making fun of men who use Viagra
     
    * Or other sex-enhancing substances to boost their performances
     
    * You'll become one of those men who will NEVER need an enhancer to last long
     
    * Your eyes will open to sexual realities.
     
    It's not easy, but it's achievable if you put your heart to it. We have trained lots of men who didn’t believe they could do it.
     
    The end of your premature ejaculation is here and do not miss the opportunity of being the man every woman wants to sleep with or at least, fantasize about.
     
    Be careful, this book will forever change your sex life for good. Your confidence and composure around women will skyrocket to another level.
     
    At the end of this Lasticle book, I promise, you will be confident in anything regarding lasting as long as you want in bed and in turn, unimaginably satisfy your woman.
     
    Before you purchase this book, it's good to know what is inside this book is the only permanent solution on earth and it works—guaranteed!
     
    Would you rather have this handled now or keep wasting money on sex drugs for the rest of your life? This is the best material you'll ever read on this topic. I kid you not. You'll smile at last and finally say, "Why haven't I read this book all these while?"

    Deadly Obsessions - Three True...

    Three true crime classics of love, murder, and the mob by a Pulitzer Prize finalist who writes with “honest and gritty realism” (Phoenix Gazette).  Award-winning author Joan Barthel uncovers the dark secrets behind some of the strangest cases in the history of American crime in these three captivating works of “first-class journalism” (The New York Times).  A Death in California: When twice-divorced Beverly Hills socialite Hope Masters fell in love with a handsome advertising executive, she thought her life was finally turning around—until she woke up to find a gun in her mouth and her fiancé dead in the next room. The killer was a new acquaintance who’d been visiting the couple’s Sierra Nevada ranch. Even more bizarre, however, was what happened at the end of the long, nightmarish weekend in which Masters saw everything she cared about destroyed: She began to fall in love with her tormenter. “Superbly documented, brilliantly written. The suspense will keep readers caught to the very last page” (Ann Rule, bestselling author of The Stranger Beside Me).  A Death in Canaan: When eighteen-year-old Peter Reilly arrived home from the Teen Center one night to discover his mother lying naked on the bedroom floor with her throat slashed, local police made him their prime suspect. After eight hours of interrogation and a polygraph test, Reilly confessed. But the townspeople of Canaan, Connecticut, couldn’t believe the naïve teenager was capable of such a gruesome crime. With the help of some celebrities, including Mike Nichols and William Styron, the community rallied to the boy’s defense. Barthel’s “riveting” account of this fascinating and frightening case was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize (People).  Love or Honor: Police officer Chris Anastos was happily married and satisfied with his work on the NYPD’s anti-crime unit—until he was asked to go undercover to investigate links between the Italian mob and a Greek criminal network in Queens. For five years he moved back and forth between his comfortable home life and a murky, underground world of wise guys, pimps, and thieves. But when he fell in love with the beautiful, raven-haired daughter of a Long Island capo, Anastos faced his gravest threat yet. “For devotees of cop tales and mob lore . . . Tantalizing” (The New York Times Book Review).

    The White Album - Essays

    New York Times Bestseller: An “elegant” mosaic of trenchant observations on the late sixties and seventies from the author of Slouching Towards Bethlehem (The New Yorker). In this landmark essay collection, Joan Didion brilliantly interweaves her own “bad dreams” with those of a nation confronting the dark underside of 1960s counterculture.   From a jailhouse visit to Black Panther Party cofounder Huey Newton to witnessing First Lady of California Nancy Reagan pretend to pick flowers for the benefit of news cameras, Didion captures the paranoia and absurdity of the era with her signature blend of irony and insight. She takes readers to the “giddily splendid” Getty Museum in Los Angeles, the cool mountains of Bogotá, and the Jordanian Desert, where Bishop James Pike went to walk in Jesus’s footsteps—and died not far from his rented Ford Cortina. She anatomizes the culture of shopping malls—“toy garden cities in which no one lives but everyone consumes”—and exposes the contradictions and compromises of the women’s movement. In the iconic title essay, she documents her uneasy state of mind during the years leading up to and following the Manson murders—a terrifying crime that, in her memory, surprised no one.   Written in “a voice like no other in contemporary journalism,” The White Album is a masterpiece of literary reportage and a fearless work of autobiography by the National Book Award–winning author of The Year of Magical Thinking (The New York Times Book Review). Its power to electrify and inform remains undiminished nearly forty years after it was first published.
