This is a detailed reader's guide to James Joyce's masterwork Ulysses, voted the most important novel of the 20th century. The guide provides episode by episode an in depth explanation of the action and symbolism, including a description of the related books of Homer's Odyssey and the correspondences. This guide is designed to give the user the keys to the kingdom of one of the wonders of Western civilization. The non-academic author, a retired lawyer and life long Joyce reader, brings new approaches to find the deep meaning of each of Joyce's episodes and the novel as a whole. The scope of this effort, the complete Joyce, is unique in an area monopolized by more narrowly focused academics. The analysis elucidates Joyce's technique to mimic patterns in history and nature in his architecture of coherence. His medicine for the diseased spirit of our age is a custom blend of Jesus and Buddha, not as they are marketed by institutional religions, but as they lived their lives as humans. Joyce's god is more possibilities in life and art, and this guide will do that for you.
Satisfying a Woman's Craving for Friendship and Faith
Author: Karen Porter
For every woman who knows a little chocolate is good for the soul. Stimulating. Satisfying. Tantilizing. Delicious. Chocolate is that sweet “something extra” that infuses anything ordinary with delectable flavor and zest. In the same way, loving friendships can sweeten a woman’s life and make almost any situation — good or bad — taste even better. Blending true stories and several original choclate recipes with rich biblical examples, Karen Porter explores eight ways that friends can help one another enjoy life — and point each other to the God who made every good and perfect gift — especially chocolate!

Judy lived an idyllic life in Canada’s picturesque Muskoka cottage country. She had a loving relationship, a good job and was the proud mother of two boys. Mark was the joyful troublemaker, a rough-and-tumble free spirit who would give anyone the shirt off his back. Jason was the quiet, sensitive one, a superb musician with a bright future. Then the unthinkable happened: a suicide, then cancer. In middle-age, Judy found herself childless, filled with emptiness, and rudderless. She kept asking herself: What happens when a mother stops being a mother? Judy gained strength from her love of family, friends and work. She turned to nature for her inspiration. Mysteries like the little buck that arrived shortly after Mark’s death, helped her appreciate the wonders of life. Caring for the tender plants in her Memory Garden gave her purpose, taught her lessons and helped her move forward on the “roller coaster” of events that unfolded. This inspiring story follows Judy’s journey from the depth of despair to enlightenment, from the brink of divorce to strength and hope. Judy Snoddon shows us how to find joy –one plant at a time.
I would like to introduce myself, I feel it's only fair. Only I know you so well now, you might get a scare. I know you know I'm in there, though I crept with greatest stealth: I am the hidden monster buried within yourself. Joyce is only sixteen when she's torn from the life she loves. Two years pass, but Joyce, her family, and her best friend Logan, are no closer to learning what's causing her dizzying array of symptoms. As Joyce tried to come to terms with her increasing limitations those around her struggle to understand what she is going through. Baffled and unsure, the doctors eventually diagnose Joyce with ME and CFS. But when Joyce and her family refuse to accept this diagnosis, her mental stability is called into question. Desperate for the truth and scared for Joyce's life, their only hope lies in a private hospital where she is finally diagnosed with Lyme Disease. Can Joyce survive a treatment as brutal as her illness? Can she find her way in a world she no longer recognises?
