Back in the news
Shattered Dreams: The Story of Charlotte Fedders - Charlotte Fedders,Laura Malone Elliott

 

 

Charlotte Fedders is back in the news.

 

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/02/19/trump-administrations-domestic-violence-scandal-resonates-abused-ex-reagan-official/326179002/

 

Last night -- Monday, 19 February 2018 -- Rachel Maddow featured a follow-up story on Rob Porter, the White House Staff Secretary who was forced to resign when it was revealed that he had abused his ex-wives.

 

Porter was not the first in the current administration to run afoul of his own shameful (?) past.  Andy Puzder had been nominated for Labor Secretary, but was forced to withdraw when similar allegations against him were made.  Puzder's ex-wife had claimed she was a guest (in disguise) on the Oprah Winfrey show years ago and detailed the abuse she had suffered. 

 

A search for the tape turned up pretty much nothing, until  . . .

Deeper - part 2 of the Deep Duet
Deeper - M. Malone,Nana Malone

Like the first part of this duet, Deeper is a bit dark, a lot steamy, and emotional. It's also action packed and there's even a couple of surprises along the way. Rafe is hard as nails and unyielding except where Diana is concerned. I did have a hard time with how many things he seemed to overlook with her, but there's a chemistry between them that is undeniable. It took me awhile to warm up to Diana, and while her actions don't always make sense, the reasons for them do. Some of my favorite parts of this one were the interactions with the many other characters. The camaraderie between these men is obvious and their banter is often quite funny. Love them or hate them, all the characters are certainly interesting and the story is impossible to put down.

Lovestruck (The Donovans)
Lovestruck (The Donovans) - Nana Malone

How do you mend a broken heart? If you are a Donovan, you get under it not over it. For Zephyr and Malia the road is long and the heartache is fierce, but their love proves unstoppable in the end. Lovestruck is not a swan song, but a power ballad that lingers in the air after the last note has been played. Enter at your own risk, because you'll regret it if you don't.

Come Home Again
Come Home Again - Nana Malone Nana Malone's motto should be: To weather the storm, strength of character has to be the norm. The one constant in Ms. Malone's work is that her characters tend to sell them self's short. Come Home Again centers around a man trying to outrun his past and a woman forced to face hers. Dee and Nate have a past that is heartbreaking, mysterious and at times even tragic, but until they face it, they will be haunted by it. If emotional is what you seek look no further than the sensitive, sensual and sensational, Nana Malone.

Review of Jefferson the Virginian by Dumas Malone
Jefferson the Virginian: Jefferson and His Time, Volume 1 - Dumas Malone

This was the first in a six volume series on the life of Thomas Jefferson. This was a wonderful read that took us from Jefferson's birth to the day he left for Europe following the Revolutionary War. The detail was incredible, but it was written in a way that it never felt overwhelming and the story never felt stale. The reader develops a real appreciation for how Jefferson later became the famous and even legendary American figure.

My only criticism would be that I felt the book did not look at Jefferson's personal life in enough detail, but as a political history, this will be a series to treasure.
