It's been four years since Rudy's brother Edgar went missing in war-torn France. Still deep in mourning and grappling with unanswered questions, Rudy and his mother struggle to move on.

Book Black Mountain, Blue Field Description/Summary:
"Have the Montenegrins not made enormous sacrifices to preserve their independence?" Rebecca West asked while traveling through the Balkans on the eve of World War II. "Greater than you can believe," her Serbian companion answered. "They have sacrificed almost everything except their heroism ... They are as like the people of Homer as any race now living: they are brave, and beautiful, and vainglorious." My grandfather prized his Montenegrin origins above almost all else, reveling in the lore of ruggedness and liberty. Yet he had not been back to his ancestral homeland in thirty years. I wanted to take him there, for one last time, before it was too late for us to get to know each other. A half-century chasm stretched between us. Grandad lived in Kansas. I shared a house with five random twenty-somethings in Berkeley, California. He was a World War II veteran who knew things like how many platoons constitute a battalion. I knew what to bring to a vegetarian potluck. His generation had been dubbed The Greatest while mine had been marked with the letter X. I wanted to know whether our kinship had any power to transcend that gulf. Above that question loomed another. Grandad was a proud, insistent patriot. I was a hesitant one, and the "War on Terror" had amplified my doubt. Nine months before our journey, the September 11 attacks had ignited a blaze of American nationalism that was leading toward a war I opposed and he seemed to welcome. Nationalism had surged through Yugoslavia during the previous decade, and torn the country to shreds. So the question I most wanted to answer was whether the pride and meaning Grandad derived from his tribal and national allegiances merited any place in my life, too. Our journey had more in store for us. Seeking friendship, we discovered lost relatives--and family secrets. Traveling through Montenegro and Serbia, we collided with uncomfortable insights about our own country. Moving through a landscape marked by NATO's 1999 bombing campaign as well as the after-effects of September 11, 2001--including, though it was under-appreciated at the time, the resurgence of ethno-nationalist politics on a global scale--we got a worm's-eye view of some the most daunting problems and paradoxes that have haunted this century so far. Lessons in the limits and legacy of American military intervention, even one that had spurred more self-congratulation than regret, trailed my every step. Conspiracy theories and suspicious cynicism--the spoils of Serbia's defeat and tragic impediments to its revival--stood between me and every friendship I attempted to make. And the potent power of tribe--unifying, elevating, divisive, menacing, and indelible--hung inescapably over the two friendships I tried hardest to deepen.
For some people in post-World War II Germany, the battle is not over. August 1945. As Stefano, an Italian POW, heads toward home across war-ravaged Germany, he encounters a young child beside his dead mother. Unable to leave him to an unknown fate, Stefano takes the boy with him, finding refuge in a seemingly abandoned house in a secluded woodland. But the house is far from vacant. Stefano wakes at the arrival of its owner, Erich, a former German soldier, who invites the travelers to stay until they can find safe passage home. Stefano cautiously agrees, intrigued by the disarming German, his reclusive neighbor Rosalind, and her traumatized husband, Georg. Stefano is also drawn to Monique, the girl in a photograph on Rosalind's wall, who went missing during the war. But when he discovers letters written by Monique, a darker truth emerges. This place of refuge could be one of reckoning, and the secrets of the past might prevent the travelers from ever getting home.

Book Remembering Marshall Field's Description/Summary:
For more than 150 years, Marshall Field's reigned as Chicago's leading department store, celebrated for its exceptional service, spectacular window displays, and fashionable merchandise. Few shoppers recalled its origins as a small dry goods business opened in 1852 by a New York Quaker named Potter Palmer. That store, eventually renamed Marshall Field and Company, weathered economic downturns, spectacular fires, and fierce competition to become a world-class retailer and merchandise powerhouse.

The store prided itself on its dazzling Tiffany mosaic dome, Walnut Room restaurant, bronze clocks, and a string of firsts including the first bridal registry and first book signing.
"Barber explores the evolution of American food from the 'first plate,' or industrially-produced, meat-heavy dishes, to the 'second plate' of grass-fed meat and organic greens, and says that both of these approaches are ultimately neither sustainable nor healthy. Instead, Barber proposes Americans should move to the 'third plate,' a cuisine rooted in seasonal productivity, natural livestock rhythms, whole-grains, and small portions of free-range meat"--Provided by publishe
