Summary: "Drawing upon extensive recent historical studies regarding death, funerals, and mourning during the Civil War era as well as primary sources, The Black Heavens provides a realistic view of Lincoln as he encountered death. Avoiding the sentimentalization and excessive psychoanalyzing that has characterized much of the historical (and fictional) writing on the subject, this book carefully situates Lincoln within the social, cultural, and political contexts of death and mourning in his time"--

Summary: The remarkable life of P.L. Travers, the creator of Mary Poppins. An arresting life…Lawson is superb at excavating the details. –Library Journal The spellbinding stories of Mary Poppins, the quintessentially English and utterly magical nanny, have been loved by generations. She flew into the lives of the unsuspecting Banks family in a children’s book that was instantly hailed as a classic, then became a household name when Julie Andrews stepped into the title role in Walt Disney’s hugely successful and equally classic film. But the Mary Poppins in the stories was not the cheery film character. She was tart and sharp, plain and vain. She was a remarkable character. The story of Mary Poppins’ creator, as this definitive biography reveals, is equally remarkable. The fabulous English nanny was actually conceived by an Australian, Pamela Lyndon Travers, who came to London in 1924 from Queensland as a journalist. She became involved with Theosophy, traveled in the literary circles of W.B. Yeats and T.S. Eliot, and became a disciple of the famed spiritual guru, Gurdjieff. She famously clashed with Walt Disney over the adaptation of the Mary Poppins books into film. Travers, whom Disney accused of vanity for “thinking you know more about Mary Poppins than I do,” was as tart and opinionated as Julie Andrews’s big-screen Mary Poppins was cheery. Yet it was a love of mysticism and magic that shaped Travers’s life as well as the character of Mary Poppins. The clipped, strict, and ultimately mysterious nanny who emerged from her pen was the creation of someone who remained inscrutable and enigmatic to the end of her ninety-six years. Valerie Lawson’s illuminating biography provides the first full look whose personal journey is as intriguing as her beloved characters.

Summary: BUTTERNUT TREE FARM When Arianna’s five year old son William was abducted, she never fully recovered from that shock for her entire life. When other children were born a few years later, she insisted that each one of them was a reincarnation of the deceased William. This story is narrated by a Mr. Abel Abel, the proprietor of The Butternut Tree Farm, an artist, handicapped because of an accident when he was a pre-teenager and who, over the years, made sketches and paintings of Arianna’s children as they grew up in the house, next to his . He called the youngsters, ‘The Prisoners of Butternut Heights,” for he never saw them leave the premises during that entire length of time that they lived there, never saw them playing with other children, and apparently reared in total ignorance of what real life was like in the outside world. Their lives were drastically changed once they left the homestead, for then they were free to do as they pleased, sharing much happiness with their rich though mismatched marriage partners. Their new way of life took them on adventures they had never dreamed of participating in, filled with adventure, mystery, intrigue, romance, and even deception. Eventually, they themselves became parents, and once again, though a generation down the road, Arianna insisted that these new offsprings were also the incarnation of her abducted son William, leaving the entire family aghast at some of the unconventional antics that she committed. It was at a dinner, at their home, that Arianna disclosed family secrets to them that no one had ever known before, catapulting the family to a breaking point from which it would never recover, climaxing in a strange and tragic ending.
