Return to Cedar Hill is the first book in The Hills of Burlington series. It is a heart-warming story of family, both the one we were born with and those we meet along the way.
In search of something she can't quite put a name to Mary Lane returns to the place her family has called home for almost two hundred years. Some would say she was looking for a new beginning, and others who thought they knew her well would insist she was starting over. All that mattered to Mary was that she was once again in the city nestled along the mighty Mississippi. And in returning to Burlington she feels as if she is finally coming home.
But as she takes on the long project of restoring her grandmother's small house the privacy she thought she long desired isn't turning out to be all she expected it to be. Then before she knows it her cousin Casey arrives at her door desperate to find refuge from the high pressure job she can no longer sell her soul for... and live with. The price has become far too ...
Relationships can be beautiful things that bring us much joy and pleasure in our lives. Sometimes we face issues in our relationships that cause problems between the participants. Look at your hands. The four gaps between your fingers were made for your special someone to fill. However, being in a relationship is not always a bed of roses. Sooner or later, both of you will encounter problems or challenges. Thus, there is a tendency that either of you will let go of the hand of the other.

First of all I want to say that in no way do I want to make light of the impact of Domestic Violence on women in our society but at least twenty five percent (25%) of the victims of domestic violence are men. One quarter of the total victims, and yet we hear nothing about them. No media coverage, not much mention in all the various Government publications and reports and certainly none in relation to meaningful assistance for these forgotten victims. Why not? In 2017 there was a reported 546,000+ men Australia wide who suffered violence at the hands of their female partners. (Government figures). It seems as if they are purposefully being overlooked. Hidden behind a dark curtain. Again, why? This book was written in an attempt to shed some light on the problem and offer some informed opinion on the subject of male victims of domestic violence and why they are being ignored by both society and the Government. They receive very little assistance other than a telephone consultation, are ...

What a concept! A book on parenting that actually inspires and guides you in spending productive time with your child. And it's easy -- even fun -- to read. In conversational style, the author presents the basic six dimensions of parental responsibility that he discovered from clinical research over twenty years ago. But the presentation is anything but academic. Each of the 30 brief "thoughts" ends with at least one "Step to Take" with your child.

You will also hear from the author's wife and children as they chime in occasionally with their personal reflections. And now, this second edition includes a section that guides those of you who are grandparents in how you can apply the basic dimensions.

In today's climate of high greed and moral low ground, compassion and benevolence lag behind such lofty goals as profits for private enterprise. The elderly especially feel the greatest economic burden.
At one time, the extended family was an integral part of American life. Grandmothers and grandfathers often lived out their elderly years with their daughters or sons and their families. That has gone the way of the horse and buggy.

Still America stands tall among all democratic countries in many areas, although lately, its heart has been cut out and thrown to the bottom line wolves. At some point, the bottom liners have to ask themselves, how much is too much? "As much as my bank account can hold," is not an acceptable answer. Planetary and human lives are finite, ...
