NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * In Danielle Steel's epic new novel, the lives of four generations of women in one family span fortune and loss, motherhood, tragedy and victories. From the glamorous San Francisco social scene of the 1920s, through war and the social changes of the '60s, to the rise of Silicon Valley today, this extraordinary novel takes us on a family odyssey that is both heartbreaking and inspiring, as each generation faces the challenges of their day. The Parisian design houses in 1928, the crash of 1929, the losses of war, the drug culture of the 1960s--history holds many surprises, and lives are changed forever. For richer or for poorer, in cramped apartments and grand mansions, the treasured wedding dress made in Paris in 1928 follows each generation into their new lives, and represents different hopes for each of them, as they marry very different men. From inherited fortunes at the outset to self-made men and women, the wedding dress remains a cherished constant for the women who wear it in each generation and forge a destiny of their own. It is a symbol of their remaining traditions and the bond of family they share in an ever-changing world.
Novelist and poet Howe suggests new and fruitful ways of thinking about both the artist's role and the condition of doubt. In these original meditations on bewilderment, motherhood, imagination, and art-making, Howe takes on conventional systems of belief and argues for another, brave way of proceeding. In the essays "Immanence" and "Work and Love" and those on writers such as Carmelite nun Edith Stein, French mystic Simone Weil, Thomas Hardy, and Ilona Karmel--who were particularly affected by political, philosophical, and existential events in the twentieth century--she directly engages questions of race, gender, religion, faith, language, and political thought and, in doing so, expands the field of the literary essay. A richly evocative memoir, "Seeing Is Believing," situates Howe's own domestic and political life in Boston in the late '60s and early '70s within the broader movement for survival and social justice in the face of that city's racism. From publisher description.
Featuring the works of such designers as Worth, Fortuny and Christian Lacroix, a photographic celebration of the wedding gown showcases garments from the Victoria & Albert Museum's renowned collection while drawing on archival letters, memoirs and newspaper accounts to trace the history of the white wedding dress.
Dirty Wedding Dress – The Dirty Past By: Audrey Malone “Don’t get drug through the mud to end up at the altar in a dirty wedding dress” I swear, every day of my life, not a day goes by where there isn't a relationship crises that I am pulled into. It doesn't matter where I go; someone is talking about relationships and marriages. Hell, love and relationships are the top talking points at my gynecologist office, geesh! Both men and women aspire to attain a traditional “happily ever after” in their relationships/marriages, it seems. However, it's looking more and more as if the tradition of marriage is being discarded and strewn to the wayside in our fast-paced society. Too many relationships are plagued with infidelity, abuse, financial woes, and an absence of a spiritual foundation. With that recipe, how can a relationship survive and thrive? After countless lessons in my life and simply observing others, I’ve witnessed and learned a lot. If marriage or a committed relationship is what you desire, complaining to others will most likely not yield a positive result. There are some things you must never forget! Some things are good. Some things are bad. Others are simply a lesson you’re meant to learn. You are about to experience an immersive lesson on relationships and what it all means in this real world, and it's guaranteed to be a lesson you will never forget! “Her white dress and white veil signifies her innocence, which is glowingly visible on her face. Meanwhile, her side smile tells the entire story of her tainted love affair.” “Some of our behaviors were quite nefarious. Behind the “good girl” public image, there lived a fun girl to the 100th power!” “But through it all, your father always professed his love for me. He swore he'd never leave me. He said he didn’t know why he beat me, but he was so sorry…always sorry.” “I thought if I could just hold on and gain the title of being his wife, all the wrongdoings would somehow instantaneously be made right.” “He would come by our house to see my mother for a few hours, here and there. He never once stayed overnight.” “Barely able to speak, she said, “I can't do this anymore.” COMING SOON Dirty Wedding Dress “The Dirty Cheater” The Novel “The Day I Met Oprah”
