Product Description
The honest and compelling story of a young girl's newfound independence, from her entrance into a new country to her frightening involvement in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911.

My heart filled with fear and hope at the same time. I had the feeling that I was brought to America for a purpose. Something important would happen to me here.

I remembered the words of the poem, "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses . . ."

"Here we are, America," I whispered. "We're just exactly what you ordered."

When she arrives on Ellis Island as a seventeen-year-old Irish immigrant, Rose Nolan is looking for a land of opportunities; what she finds is far from all she'd dreamed. Stubborn and tenacious, she refuses to give up. Left alone to fend for herself and her younger sister, Rose is thrust into a hard-knock life of tenements and factory work.

When the devastating Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911 rushes into Rose's life, her confusions are brought to an all-too-painful head.To whom and to what can she turn when everything around her is in ashes?

5-0 out of 5 stars A realistic story of working-class immigrant life in early twentieth-century New York
Ashes of Rose begins with the Nolan family's arrival at Ellis Island.Rose Nolan, her parents, and two of her three siblings are permitted to enter the country, but her baby brother is refused entry for medical reasons.Rose's father and brother return to Ireland while Rose and the rest of her family stay in New York.The family tries to adjust to life in the United States, but eventually Mrs.Nolan returns to Ireland, leaving just Rose and her younger sister Maureen in New York.The rest of the novel tells the story of the girls' experiences living and working in New York.The novel brings in many historical elements, including the infamous fire at the Triangle Shirt Waist Factory, to tell a realistic story of working-class immigrant life in early twentieth-century New York.The reading level makes this book appropriate for middle-school students, while the interest-level makes it appropriate for high-school students as well.TESOL students may recognize parts of the story that are familiar even to modern-day immigrants and therefore this novel may also work well for high-level TESOL students.

4-0 out of 5 stars A captivating glimpse at a young immigrant's life...
The Nolan family set off from their native Ireland with great hopes for their new life in America. Instead, the Ellis Island officials declared the baby had trachoma and must return -- needing someone to accompany him.

Despite her best efforts, their mother was simply not able to get along in New York. She decides to head back with four-year-old Bridget, while 16-year-old Rose and 12-year-old Maureen beg to stay. Rose just knows she'll be able to find work and establish roots until the rest of the family returns.

Now the girls are on their own, and while they do have their share of difficulties adjusting, they find the city a whole new world of wondrous things for them to discover, like nickelodeons, dime novels and new friends of all sorts of ethnic backgrounds.

Then the girls' newfound life is shattered one tragic April afternoon when their workplace -- the Triangle Shirtwaist Company -- goes up in flames. The panicked girls, up on the eighth and ninth floors, find themselves locked in by wary bosses with a paranoia for employee theft. Suddenly, it's a fight for mere survival.

Auch combines a typical immigrant story with the horror of the Triangle fire, using both research on Ellis Island and the factory as well as the sketching of two ordinary young girls' lives to create a memorable portrait of an unimaginable and unforgettable tragedy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read!!!
I thought this book was heart touching! I came across it and checked it out kind of as a joke. I read it for a class project and found myself not wanting to stop. I found it very interesting to read about the life of a foriegner coming into another country. It's about an irish family who struggles on a journey coming into New York. It kept me on the edge of my seat and I was never bored when reading it. I think if you read this book you would be very fascinated.

4-0 out of 5 stars Powertful, moving and intelligent
The novel "Ashes of Roses" is a powerful, moving and intelligent book. I highly recommend it for all ages. The story is based in the Nolan family who travels from the streets of Limrick, Ireland.They take a boat trip to "The Streets of Gold" in New York. Once the family of six (Michael Nolan, Father, Margaret Nolan-Mother, Margaret Rose Nolan- Oldest sister 16, Maureen Nolan- middle sister 12, Bridget Nolan- Youngest sister 4, and Joseph Nolan- young infant (brother) are about to enter America, Joseph gets sick with an eye disease which prevents his entry into America. Michael chose to return to Ireland with Joseph, while Margaret, Rose, Maureen and Bridget find their way through America. Throughout the story, the author Mary Jane Auch is very precise with the Irish and Yiddish accents. The book really helped me understand and connect with the characters learning about the hard life to live in America. Enjoy!

Product Description
Driven by visions of his dead father, Professor Caleb Crowe reluctantly joins the Morpheus Initiative, a team of remote-viewing archaeologists determined to locate the remains of the seventh Wonder of the Ancient World—the Pharos Lighthouse—beneath which the legendary treasure of Alexander the Great is rumored to be hidden.

Crowe’s quest spans two thousand years of visionary history that connects the ashes of Herculaneum and the lost Library of Alexandria with a secret government program and ancient society called The Keepers.

To discover a threshold guarded by deadly traps and forgotten prophecies is one thing, but facing the truth about himself is something else altogether. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars The start of something great
A thoroughly researched and thoroughly enjoyable book with a fascinating premise. The historical settings are captivating and the characters engaging. I've been a fan of this writer's stories for years and this is undoubtedly one of his best. This book was hard to put down and I'm looking forward to the next one in the series!

4-0 out of 5 stars This book had everything I was looking for
Caleb Crowe used to enjoy the life of his mother and father being archaeologists. Caleb and his sister would get to travel to exotic locations and help look for lost artifacts. Things changed when Caleb's father disappeared. Caleb quickly left that life and became a Professor.

Years later, Caleb's mother wants him to rejoin the Morpheus Initiative. The Initiative is in search of the Seventh Wonder of the Ancient World, The Pharos Lighthouse. It is told that hidden under the lighthouse is the grand treasure of Alexander the Great. Caleb rejoins but under protest. Will the legend be true or a myth?

The Pharos Objective is book one of the Morpheus Initiative series. The Pharos Objective by David Sakmyster is the first and won't be the last book I read by this author. Can I tell you that I literally lost myself in this book. It was that great. I took this book with me on my vacation and finished it on the way home in just a matter of hours. Because I enjoyed this book so much it helped to pass the time. This book kind of reminded me of the Mummy with Brendan Frasier with Indiana Jones and Jason Bourne thrown in for good measure. This book had everything I was looking for from ....action and adventure, captivating storyline and interesting characters. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book, The Mongol Objective.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great read
This book by David Sakmyster, was a great read. The characters were well sketched and flushed out. The thesis or story line was believable and drawn from both history and imagination. It is well written and one wants to read until finished. Ready for the next book in the series.

J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"

5-0 out of 5 stars Ready for the next book please!
I took this book on vacation with me for some light reading.I was hoping it would last the whole week but it was such an intriguing story that I found myself staying up to read it.The action and mystery begins right away, based on a clever intertwining of facts with mythical legends and supernatural powers.I thoroughly enjoyed the characterization of historical figures as well as the fictional ones.The story was grounded enough in actual history(Thanks to the author for the notes at the end) to make some of the fictional aspects seem truly plausible.Very entertaining and informative - I was sorry when I was done but glad to hear another book is coming soon!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Summer Read
Recieved the book not knowing what I would read, but since reading the other Sakmyster book "Silver and Gold" I had to have it.His writing is great and the story a page turner.It is a great book to pick up and escape with.
Sakmyster has a way of making words sing on the page, gripping the reader into another world where before you know it, you have burned through the story looking for more.
I highly recommend the book as well as Sakmysters other (Silver and Gold) where this is a great summer read, there is no doubt that the other is a great fall read or winter read. ... Read more

Product Description
In this heart-pounding new thriller, Detective Alex Cross pursues the most brilliant killer he's ever confronted, a mysterious criminal who calls himself the Mastermind. In a series of crimes that has stunned Washington, D.C., bank robbers have been killing bank employees and their families if the robbers' instructions are not followed to the letter. Alex Cross knows this is no ordinary criminal-the pathological need for control and perfection is too great. Cross is in the midst of a crisis at home-but the case becomes all-consuming as he learns that the Mastermind is plotting one huge, last, perfect crime...Amazon.com Review
Roses Are Red, James Patterson's sixth Alex Cross thriller, opens with the District of Columbia detective attempting to mend his nearly unraveled family. The year-long kidnapping of one's intended (1999's Pop Goes the Weasel) will do that to a relationship. Christine, the kidnappee, is amenable with one reasonable condition: that her family's horizon remain uncluttered by homicidal maniacs. How unfortunate, then, that the joyous christening of their newborn son is rudely interrupted by the FBI bearing news of several heinous murders requiring the attention of detective (and doctor of psychology) Cross.

"Three-year-old boy, the father, a nanny," Kyle said one more time before he left the party. He was about to go through the door in the sun porch when he turned to me and said, "You're the right person for this. They murdered a family, Alex."

As soon as Kyle was gone, I went looking for Christine. My heart sank. She had taken Alex and left without saying good-bye, without a single word.

Which leaves Cross free to hunt the Mastermind, the barbarous brains behind a widening series of bank robberies in which employees or their family members are held hostage and, when instructions aren't followed to the finest iota, slaughtered. Given the cases' glaring and unfathomable inhumanity, Cross's long-time DCPD partner (the wonderful giant, John Sampson) gives way to the warm, attractive, and fiercely intelligent FBI Agent Betsey Cavalierre.

The longer and harder Cross and Cavalierre remain on his trail, the bolder and more brutal--and shiveringly close to home--the Mastermind's strikes become. And, thanks mostly to lightning-short paragraphs and a point of view that rappels from the first-person Cross to the third-person Mastermind, the tale progresses at hot-trot speed to a bona fide doozy of a denouement. It'll be over before you know it, so sit back, hold your breath, and enjoy the show. And stay tuned for the next one. --Michael Hudson ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Maddening Villian
I like the Alex Cross series and I'm making my way through it.I like how down to earth his character is and how he loves his family but is also dedicated to his neighborhood and protecting it.Having a love life, with such a terribly stressful job is next to impossible, and yet he tries so hard.He experiences some typical and not so typical problems, thanks to this books villian, the Mastermind.How can he always be two steps ahead of the investigation, all the time?It makes you think and wonder who it could possibly be.The Mastermind is cold hearted and murderous and keeps Alex and everyone else hopping.There are always twists that you don't expect and the relationships don't always go his way.I like closure with the villians by the end of the book and it doesn't come with this one.That's my biggest complaint about this book.But it did get me to move on to the next book and the next.You won't believe who the Mastermind turns out to be!I'll continue to read the series as fast as James Patterson can publish them!

1-0 out of 5 stars disappointing ending
This is my first James Patterson novel.I read "Against Medical Advice" which was based on a true story and i really enjoyed that one, so i thought this would be great.Well i kept reading and reading because it thought at some point Alex Cross was going to be this great hero, and prove to be a mastermind himself.But his biggest break in the case was when someone blew the whistle on their own father.No amazing display of detective work there....In fact Alex Cross has NO CLUE until the end of the book... and yet i'm still unsure if he really knew.There was no motive no rhyme or reason for the ending.

Not sure if i want to read another James Patterson book again.My husband had warned me that he didn't like james patterson,and i should have listened.Waste of time.Will have to try another author.

2-0 out of 5 stars Roses Are Red
Typical Alex Cross in what we've come to expect - ridiculously overreaching genius unkillable (main) bad guy who can not be touched except by Alex.The Author seems to thrill in running the protagonist through an emotional ringer.Continually setting Alex up with the bad guy's "outrageous" "unthinkable" vile deeds, continually showing a bad guy with no redeemable qualities, but yet Alex must capture him so that he can escape later to re-terrorize Alex and his family.His action sequences are rarely coherent in a time line - villains are covered by weapons, but are able to so "suddenly" draw a weapon and start firing and/or turn lunge and escape.It is more like the author thinks in a turn based system, where everyone gets some action then waits for the other guy to go, and he gets to do all his actions before anyone can react.Very unrealistically described action sequences.

4-0 out of 5 stars a good read
James Patterson's Alex Cross' books have been a little up and down.This one is ok.I enjoyed reading it,b ut then I enjoy almost any mystery book and don't ask for a lot but to be entertained and I was.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book but felt let down at the end.I assume there will be a sequel as the story, as far as I was concerned, was left unfinished.Like many people I am a busy person and I love books with short chapters.I found it spellbinding and it hooked me right to the end.Then I fell flat on my face. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Not your mom's Chinese cookbook
New World Chinese Cooking caught my eye at the library yesterday and I was so intrigued by it that I'm ordering my own copy.This is, as Ken Hom says in the Foreword, East/West food--fusion cooking.What's fusion?A combination of classic culinary delights with new techniques, often from other countries, and readily available ingredients, in this case in North America.

After an Introduction to the Chinese pantry, tools, cooking techniques, Chinese ingredients, and Asian vegetables, authors Jones and Wong get down to business.In chapters from Appetizers to Desserts, there are recipes from the basics (stock and spice mixes) to exotic.Just to give you a flavor (pun intended) of some recipes that made me drool:

* Crab and Corn Pancakes with Sweet-and-Sour Sauce
* Grilled Mussels with Sweet Peppers in Satay Glaze
* Crispy Sesame Phyllo Rolls Stuffed with Ginger Chicken and Soya Onions
* Crisp-Fried Chili and Garlic Shrimp
* Wok-Seared Beef Tenderloin with Mushrooms and Char Sui Sauce
* Beer-Battered Shrimp with Honey-Chili Glaze
* Pacific Rim Coleslaw with Spicy Apple-Basil Dressing
* Five-Spice and Spinach Scalloped Potatoes
* Stir-Fried Velvet Chicken with Rosemary Ginger and Carrots
* Ginger Panna Cotta with Mango
* Baked Wontons Stuffed with Apples and Cinnamon

You get the idea.Recipes are well laid out, directions are clear, unusual ingredients and terms are explained in sidebars, and many items are photographed deliciously in color.I have no doubt that I, a fairly average cook, can duplicate these dishes with no problems.I expect this cookbook to become one of my absolute favorites.

4-0 out of 5 stars An historical hero brought to life
Life in the Old West was perilous and uncertain. There were fortunes to be made in the gold fields and in the enterprises that followed the gold rush. Yet law enforcement was not well-established, and stagecoach and trainrobbers could wipe out a fortune as quickly as it was made. The Wells,Fargo Company needed a way to protect the great sums of money its coacheswere responsible for delivering. It hired James B. Hume, a Californialawman, to take charge of its detective bureau in 1873.

James Hume was adifferent breed from the stereotypical western lawman who winked at civilrights and abused authority. He was just as concerned that an innocent manbe kept out of jail as he was that he find the guilty man. And he had animpressive record of catching the guilty man, the most famous being BlackBart, the "Po8" stage coach robber.

Pioneering methods ofcriminal investigation which are now used widely, James Hume dug pelletsout of a dead stage horse in order to do a ballistics test, and he trackeddown Black Bart with the laundry mark from his handkerchief. Determined butpatient, he logged an impressive number of solved cases.

This biographyby Richard Dillon reads as smoothly as a novel. He used James Hume's ownletters and diaries, which are in the Wells, Fargo Museum in San Francisco,for his research as very little had been written about Hume's life. He notonly relates the fascinating events of Hume's public life but mines hispersonality as well and finds a heroic and likable figure.

In a time whenwe could use more heroes, I enjoyed reading about a real-life hero whocontributed to the colorful past of the West and still maintained hisintegrity. ... Read more
