Featured Book - Sorrows & Songs by Janice Wood Wetzel
Sorrows & Songs addresses with candor the events that have shaped and challenged the author's life. The forthright telling of her story through her 80th year is written in engaging vignettes, moving snapshots of memories of both Sorrows& Songs within the context of world events. Though not written in chronological order, it alludes to the Great Depression, World War II, the restrained 1950s, Civil Rights and Women's movements, 9-11, and the Global Women's movement.

Janice's life is unique in its accomplishments and resilience as a social work dean, professor and United Nations representative, as it is the personal story of common challenges experienced by girls and women from the 1930s through the early 21st century.
Featured Book - Trauma, Shame and the Power of Love: The Fall and Rise of a Physician Who Heals Himself by Christopher E. Pelloski, MD
There is a reason books that recount the regrets and advice of the dying strike so deep a chord: people who have nothing left to lose can tell their stories with a sincerity and unpretentiousness we crave but that is all too rare. In “Trauma, Shame, and the Power of Love” Christopher Pelloski relates his own downfall from a prominent physician-scientist in the field of radiation oncology in a similarly candid way.
SEE OUR REVIEW
Without fear of losing society’s good opinion - having lost it already - Pelloski has the freedom to be sharply honest in his observations of himself and the world around him. To the question “Why would someone with so much going for him risk, and then lose, everything, by sinking so low”? he offers a gut-wrenching, soul-baring answer that dissects his decades-long downward spiral and examines it from perspectives that range from the historical to the molecular.
Pelloski chronicles the evolution of his devastating legal battle alongside his concurrent journey of recovery from childhood sexual abuse. He shares with us the lessons he learned from these experiences in the hope they can serve as both a warning and an invitation: a warning to abuse survivors not to follow his dark path of silence, and an invitation to society to deal more openly with the multitude of painful issues that have shaped not only his life but also, tragically, the lives of so many others.
Those brave enough to set aside their prejudices and preconceptions will be richly rewarded and challenged by Dr. Pelloski’s work.
