Book Gold in the Snow Description/Summary:

Who among us hasn't treasured memories of yesteryear told to us by our 'elders'? Aleta Miller has gathered vignettes and woven them into a tapestry of life in a Sierra Gold Rush mining town exotically named Port Wine (near Whiskey Diggins and Poker Flat). She has captured the essence of California's pioneer spirit, mining nuggets of real life stories that lay buried under yesteryear's journalism: Two story deep snowdrifts compete with a mountain visitor in a Locomobile. Civil War politics blend in with birth pains of the new California statehood. Downhill ski races lift spirits of beleaguered residents of Port Wine and La Porte, also known as Rabbit Creek. Uncontrollable fires gut reconstructed towns with diabolical regularity. In addition, we meet colorful characters who have touched the hills including Black Bart, Dutch Kate, Bret Harte, the Blue Lake Monster and Sasquatch. There is something for everyone in this delightful read. Aleta Farren Miller, as a young girl, became enamored of California gold country history during occasional visits to the Davis Motor Mine. The mine tunneled into a mountainside within a mile of Port Wine, CA. It was operated by Aleta's cousins Fred and Durward Davis and produced a modest quantity of gold. Aleta was enchanted by the remoteness of the location as well as by the surroundings which have changed very little over the last 100 years. Passing encounters with "old timers" and whimsical poetry adorning grave sites in the Pioneer Cemetery stimulated a growing interest. Many of her relatives and even a pet parrot are buried there. With the help of her mother, Rilla Farren Cross, other family members, the archives of Bancroft Library at U.C. Berkeley, and The Mountain Messenger Newspaper at Downieville, CA, the interest culminated in Aleta investing almost a decade undertaking this collection of what now may be classified as journalistic memorabilia. We are indebted to her instinctive ability to sort out and preserve this remarkable collection of memories. Her own background and personal experiences make her uniquely capable of understanding and synthesizing the insight that she gained from that time in California history.

Book Ketchup Soup Description/Summary:

A roaring, rollicking, foot-stomping farce. Ketchup Soup is an epic, and at times ribald, comedy about the lovable James Reichardt, a verbose junior copywriter who's just landed his first job at a sleepy advertising agency in New Orleans. Part genius, part naive miscreant, James suffers from illusions of grandeur, not the least of which are the beliefs that business is the key to happiness and that he is Caesar reincarnated. In his first 364 days in the Big Easy he'll join forces with the many colorful characters of the city to bring down the ad agency, swear allegiance to art and lead a revolt against capitalism at the height of Mardis Gras. A tale that is both hilarious and heartfelt, Ketchup Soup is the side-splitting story of one young man's journey through the nonconformists and dank back alleys of New Orleans.

Book Mustard Seed Description/Summary:

The bestselling author of Yellow Crocus returns with a haunting and tender story of three women returning to the plantation they once called home. Oberlin, Ohio, 1868. Lisbeth Johnson was born into privilege in the antebellum South. Jordan Freedman was born a slave to Mattie, Lisbeth's beloved nurse. The women have an unlikely bond deeper than friendship. Three years after the Civil War, Lisbeth and Mattie are tending their homes and families while Jordan, an aspiring suffragette, teaches at an integrated school. When Lisbeth discovers that her father is dying, she's summoned back to the Virginia plantation where she grew up. There she must face the Confederate family she betrayed by marrying an abolitionist. Jordan and Mattie return to Fair Oaks, too, to save the family they left behind, who still toil in oppression. For Lisbeth, it's a time for reconciliation. For Jordan and Mattie, it's time for liberation. As the Johnsons and Freedmans confront the injustice that binds them, as well as the bitterness and violence that seethes at its heart, the women must find the courage to free their families--and themselves--from the past.
