Daughters of Memory: A Novel, Arnold, Janis
1 Arnold, Janis Daughters of Memory: A Novel

Spine slightly slanted, very minor edgewear. A bright, attractive copy. Advance proof.

"The remarkable story of two sisters, each with something to hide in her past, as they engage in an intensifying duel for dominance from childhood to middle age. One seems to be the responsible sister - the one who succeeds in school and attends college. The other appears to be the wild sister - the one who got in trouble with boys and ran away from home. But the truth lies somewhere in between the two narratives, which we read in alternate, interlacing chapters - a dark, disturbing truth rendered with extraordinary psychological perception and a superb gift for storytelling."; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall

Deadly Promise: A Novel of Suspense, Ballard, Mignon F.
2 Ballard, Mignon F. Deadly Promise: A Novel of Suspense
New York Carroll & Graf 1989 0881845159 / 9780881845150 Advanced Reading Copy (ARC) Soft Cover Very Good+ 

232 pp. Uncorrected Proof. Spine slightly slanted. Reviewer's notes on half-title page. Letter from publisher to reviewer describing book and author is inserted. A bright, attractive copy.

"Mignon F. Ballard perfectly evokes the lives and surroundings of Southern women in small-town America, a sympathetic place that we would like to know and, for the moment at least, to live in. Murder in this context is more shocking, more threatening, than murder in the drug-choked streets of the Bronx.
"Molly Stonehouse, on a holiday visit to her late husband Ethan's aunts, suspects that behind the festive façade in the small Georgia town of Harmony a dangerous drama is taking place. Scary incidents during the caroling parties and rifle fire . . . strengthen her belief that Ethan's death was not an accident. His killer could be a family friend. Perhaps even a relative. When her husband was a child he and his boyhood chum Neil had a secret they promised each other never to reveal. Now Neil and Ethan were both dead and Molly is afraid she is next!"

Corners bumped including a few pages, slight edge wear. Uncorrected proof in pictorial wraps. A tight, attractive copy.

"A priest approaches Chief Superintendent Peter McGarr to report and to make a bizarre request: Could McGarr have the death officially listed as an accident and then pursue the investigation in secret? The answer, of course, is no. Perhaps McGarr would have been wiser to have accepted Father Duggan's offer of covert aid, since McGarr's official investigation is being oddly opposed at every turn. Yet the deeper McGarr digs, the closer he is drawn to a secret order of religious zealots called Opus Dei, a group devoted to enforcing the Lord's edicts no matter what the cost in money. . . or human life."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall

"The first book to explore the persistence of the American women's rights movement in a period generally considered devoid of feminist activism and to show the ways in which the more radical movement of the 1960s was influenced by the successes and failures of the 1950s activities. Focusing on women who saw themselves as heirs of the suffrage movement and who were, in many cases, actual participants in that original campaign, the authors have conducted extensive interviews and searched through rare letters and memoirs to reclaim the lost history of this period of American feminism."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
