In crisply written prose, Calasso The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony, seeks depths, and encourages questions, that become a pleasure to ponder. The title sets the tone. The result is a multilayered, engaging composition that entertainingly draws the reader through a sophisticated system of thought.

The result, though, isn—t a handbook: Calasso knows that not ideas but characters are what make stories work, and that we understand best when we sympathize most. A touching family drama that effectively explores the negative impact of stress on fragile relationships.

A middle-aged woman returns to her childhood home to care for her ailing father, confronting many painful secrets from her past. Gone is the rebellious young person she remembers, and in his place stands a compassionate, accomplished adult. As Jack and Mallory chase down answers, Mallory also tries to repair her rocky relationships with her two sisters and determine why her father has always been so hard on her. Even so, Delinsky sometimes manages to pick up the pace, and in those moments the beauty and nuance of this complicated family tale shine through.

A love letter to the power of books and friendship. Women become horseback librarians in s Kentucky and face challenges from the landscape, the weather, and the men around them. Alice thought marrying attractive American Bennett Van Cleve would be her ticket out of her stifling life in England.

But when she and Bennett settle in Baileyville, Kentucky, she realizes that her life consists of nothing more than staying in their giant house all day and getting yelled at by his unpleasant father, who owns a coal mine. And even though all this makes Margery a town pariah, Alice quickly grows to like her.

Alice spends long days in terrible weather on horseback, but she finally feels happy in her new life in Kentucky, even as her marriage to Bennett is failing. She writes about Kentucky with lush descriptions of the landscape and tender respect for the townspeople, most of whom are poor, uneducated, and grateful for the chance to learn.

Although Alice and Margery both have their own romances, the true power of the story is in the bonds between the women of the library. They may have different backgrounds, but their commitment to helping the people of Baileyville brings them together. Already have an account? Log in. Trouble signing in? Retrieve credentials.

The sacred literature of Hinduism is traditionally divided into two "families. These books are called shruti "hearing" because they contain the perennial wisdom "heard" by the ancient rishis "seers" in states of heightened awareness. The rishis, though typically represented as human figures with godlike abilities, are really neither human nor divine, but incarnations of cosmic forces that appear at the dawn of each world age to establish its framework of order and truth. Chief among their creations for our current age are the four collections of hymns and prayers, sacrificial formulas, and chants known together as the Vedas literally, "knowledge". The younger family, in contrast, is called smriti, books "remembered" and so composed by human teachers. While widely read and admired by the Hindu community, these books have less authority than shruti.
