Dawn Skies
When you love someone...you’ll do anything to protect them. Warwick Nobles values his job as the leading hand at Stormcloud Station, but lately he’s been feeling restless and thinks about moving on. Sent out to check a malfunctioning camera at an isolated bore site, he finds something astounding that will change his life forever. Kee Singh cares about only one thing, her four-year-old daughter, Bennie. At first, she doesn’t want to trust Warwick, but she’s left with little option when her car breaks down in the middle of the outback and she runs out of food and water. This small-town cowboy catches her off guard. Broody and handsome, Warwick starts to break down Kee’s trust issues, when he proves honest men do exist. Warwick makes a deal with Kee, to keep her safe and sheltered until she can find a way out of her predicament. But Kee never intended to stay in Queensland, and she will always put her daughter first. When she finally tells him the truth, that she testified against her husband—a corrupt cop—and is now on the run, afraid for her daughter’s safety, Warwick wonders if he can truly protect her, after all.

Books Promiscuously Read

release date: Jul 05, 2022
Books Promiscuously Read
The critic and scholar Heather Cass White offers an exploration of the nature of reading. Heather Cass White’s Books Promiscuously Read is about the pleasures of reading and its power in shaping our internal lives. It advocates for a life of constant, disorderly, time-consuming reading, and encourages readers to trust in the value of the exhilaration and fascination such reading entails. Rather than arguing for the moral value of reading or the preeminence of literature as an aesthetic form, Books Promiscuously Read illustrates the irreplaceable experience of the self that reading provides for those inclined to do it. Through three sections—Play, Transgression, and Insight—which focus on three ways of thinking about reading, Books Promiscuously Read moves among and considers many poems, novels, stories, and works of nonfiction by authors ranging from Cervantes, George Eliot, Thylias Moss, Mary Shelley, and more. The prose is shot through with quotations reflecting the way readers think through the words of others. Books Promiscuously Read is a tribute to the whole lives readers live in their books, and aims to recommit people to those lives. As White writes, “What matters is staying attuned to an ordinary, unflashy, mutely persistent miracle; that all the books to be read, and all the selves to be because we have read them, are still there, still waiting, still undiminished in their power. It is an astonishing joy.”

Drawing from fairy tales, ghost stories, and science-fiction, the stories in ActivAmerica explore how we confront (and exert) power and re-imagine ourselves through sports and athletic activities. A group of girls starts an illicit hockey league in a conservative suburb. A recently separated woman must run a mile a day in order to maintain her new corporate health insurance. Children impacted by environmental disaster create a “mutant soccer team.” Two sisters are visited by an Olympic gymnast who demands increasingly dangerous moves from them.

Throughout the collection, however, athletic risk also comes with unexpected, often unsettling results.
