The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen
Jane Austen Lived a Quiet, Single Life-Or Did She? Tradition holds that Jane Austen lived a proper, contemplative, unmarried life. But what if she wed a man as passionate and intelligent as she-and the marriage remained secret for 200 years? The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen resolves the biggest mystery of Austen's life-the "lost years" of her twenties-of which historians know virtually nothing. Why the enduring rumors of a lost love or tragic affair? Why, afterward, did the vivacious Austen prematurely put on "the cap of middle age" and close off any thoughts of finding love? Why, after her death, did her beloved sister destroy her letters and journals? The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen trilogy answers these questions through a riveting love affair based on the history of the times and the details of Austen's own life. "A skillful portrayal of an early nineteenth-century literary icon takes this historical romance on an imaginative journey of the soul." -Foreword CLARION Reviews, 4 stars "Hemingway captures the energy of the times, while also writing with the irony and sly humor of Austen herself." -Blueink Starred Review "An enjoyable first novel in an imaginative, well-researched series." -Kirkus Reviews "Hemingway, with the lightest touch, builds up a thoroughly convincing alternative history." -Jane Austen's Regency World "

Maximum Brainpower
"We all understand the importance of daily exercise in keeping physically fit. But mental exercise is just as essential to our health and well-being--especially when it comes to defending against forgetfulness, memory loss, and even dementia. These and other age-associated afflictions were once regarded as all but inevitable, but in fact, as this eye-opening, inspiring book shows, there is much we can do to protect ourselves as we grow older. With the right tools, we can all maximize our brainpower and keep our minds sharp, healthy, and cognitively fit throughout life. Written by internationally renowned cognitive psychologist Shlomo Breznitz and technologist Collins Hemingway, Maximum Brainpower provides both an in-depth look at how the brain works and proven methods to increase its capabilities. Armed with the results of cutting-edge research, Breznitz and Hemingway champion in compelling detail the challenge and stimulus of continual change over the deadening effects of comfortable routine. They show how to separate good mental stress from bad, and demonstrate how hope and socialization can help delay or even fight off the worst symptoms of dementia. Did you know that experts are often less mentally agile than jacks-of-all-trades? That mental exercises such as crossword puzzles and sudoku are of minimal help in building brainpower? That multitasking poses unique dangers to the brain by presenting us with an environment in which we never evolved enough to thrive? Breznitz knows--and what's more, he knows what to do about it. Filled with colorful real-life stories and fascinating psychological experiments, many published here for the first time, this revelatory work will help adults of any age build and retain their mental acuity. Think better, live better, be better with Maximum Brainpower. Really, it's a no-brainer!"--Provided by publisher.

The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen
" The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen reimagines the life of England's most famous female author by asking: How would her life have changed if she had married and had a child? How would this thinking woman, and sensitive soul, have responded not to a ballroom flirtation but to a real relationship that developed over time? How would shouldering the responsibilities of marriage and motherhood have changed her as a person and a writer? The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen is the only Austen--themed novel that delves deeply into the psyche of a woman falling in love--and the only novel to address what marriage in the early 1800s would have been like for a woman of intelligence and passion. Using the Austen oeuvre as a foundation, this book takes the heroine out of her safe country villages and tosses her into a world that is far more complex and exciting. As the story develops, the protagonist becomes engaged in matters such as the slave trade; the advances that gave birth to the Industrial Revolution; the growing conflicts between science and religion; the antagonism between aristocrats and the rising mercantile class; and the horrifying impacts of the never--ending war with France on English citizens. And all the while, she falls ever more in love with the man who introduces her to this bigger and more dangerous world. Being a courtship novel, Volume I concludes with a happy ending; but it goes beyond a comedy of manners to touch deep, honest feelings between a woman and man. Volume I of The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen sets up the complexity and contradictions of marriage that are addressed in the following volumes: the richness of a requited love set against the often cruel realities of life in the Regency age--for husband as well as wife."
