In mid-19th-century Amherst, Emily Dickinson is famous both for her notable family and for her reclusive ways, and only Miranda Chase, a smart girl with big plans for her own life, is allowed to enter the budding poet's very private world. At first, their Monday afternoon visits involve discussing books over piping hot cups of tea, but when Miranda begins exploring her own yearnings -- for love, for an education, even for a career -- she discovers that being a friend of Emily's is not without its dangers. The very charisma that has inspired her becomes a web of intrigue, and to escape it, Miranda will imperil her reputation, her independence, and even her dreams. Drawing on letters, poems, and everything that is known about Dickinson's life, Afternoons With Emily is a vivid portrait of America's most famous poet, a coming-of age story that spans the Civil War, and a tale of two brilliant women who each chose to break with convention and live life on their own terms.

Beautiful, gracious, gregarious Emily Chabot emigrated as a small child from France to San Francisco in 1851. The heiress to considerable property, she married Remi Chabot, the younger brother of Anthony Chabot, in 1870, and became a prominent member of her community-entertaining diplomats, inventors, business tycoons and impoverished emigres with equal cordiality. A strong feminist, she was especially generous to women artists and scientists, and joined other notable women in the East Bay in sponsoring philanthropic causes. This is the story of Emily's remarkable life and her legacy to the history of California.

Our Own Kind is a World War II novel without the combat, a novel about the America the soldiers left behind. Anne Weiss depicts here in families of different social and income levels the effects of the war in daily experience as well as on the greater occasions of weddings and funerals. Hers is an Our Town view of an upstate New York town called Westerveldt, where the importance of the characters behavior and conversation is historically clear to us while dimly perceptible to them. They feel helplessly caught up in events they cant control. The Osterhoudts and Van Leuvens, the old established families, as well as the Sloanes and Mancusos in trade and contract work, see their sons dying overseas, their daughters marrying out of their own class, the war affecting their customs and privileges, all sorts of changes taking place in a world they thought they knew. As the author makes clear, this uncertainty and threat to their own kind affects everyone in the novel of every class and age. In a style of subtle understatement Anne Weiss shows her two main characters, Emily Osterhoudt, home from college, and Mary D. Van Leuven, still in high school, as shrewd inside observers forcing the action while resisting social pressure if not rebelling against circumstance and upbringing. Our Own Kind is a many-sided moving account of a World War II America that prefigures something of our more recent homeland anxieties.

He was a man who didn't deserve a second chance. But he needed one... Emily and her husband Sandy Portman seemed to live a gracious if busy life in an old-world, Upper West Side apartment in the famous Dakota building. But one night on the way to meet Emily, Sandy dies in a tragic accident. The funeral isn't even over before Emily learns she is on the verge of being evicted from their apartment. But worse than the possibility of losing her home, Emily is stunned when she discovers that her marriage was made up of lies. Suddenly Emily is forced on a journey to find out who her husband really was . . . all the while feeling that somehow he isn't really gone. Angry, hurt, and sometimes betrayed by loving memories of the man she lost, Emily finds comfort in a scruffy dog named Einstein.
