Claire Doyle and Vina Hutchinson - The Insiders' Guide to North Carolina's Central Coast and New Bern

Folks - Lady Vina has given Lallybroch its first official (i.e. I've seen it in writing *G*) mention in the written and published word! I just got a copy of The Insiders' Guide to North Carolina's Central Coast and New Bern - a guide to just what it says! And right in the inside under acknowledgements from Vina is "The following people also deserve recognition for their many kindnesses to me over the years: .... Judie Rousselle and the Ladies of Lallybroch (www.lallybroch.com)." HELLO IN THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Vina, I never would have guessed this in a million years. That is such a lovely thing for you to do. Thank you so much. And I guess we all need to give ourselves a hand for being so wonderful, because it's certainly not just me, but everyone here that makes Lallybroch what it is! Thanks so much, Vina! :-)

Judie (June, 23, 1999)

coverMargie Lapanja - Goddess in the Kitchen: 201 Heavenly Recipes, Spirited Stories & Saucy Secrets
From Amazon.com: When Margie Lapanja was just a wee child playing with her Susie Homemaker light-bulb oven, she imagined that she was casting magic spells with her fluffy concoctions. Over 20 years later, Lapanja found herself doing just that as a professional baker and covert kitchen goddess. What do goddesses do in the kitchen? They heal the wounded spirit with Magic Double-Fudge Brownies, daydream with Mango Tapioca Pudding, comfort the downtrodden with Chipped Beef and Saffron biscuits, and cast love spells with Casablanca Cheesecake. Lapanja shares all these recipes as well as numerous goddess tips such as: never cook in a bad mood; keep your life full of the freshest ingredients; and delete the words "fat free" from your vocabulary and replace them with "fear free." --Gail Hudson

coverJohn McPhee - The Crofter and the LairdScotland
In 1969 John McPhee, a staff writer on The New Yorker, decided to transport himself and his family across the ocean and to live, for a time, on the tiny Hebridean island of his forefathers. His children enrolled at the island school and the family took up residence in a crofthouse, being accepted readily into the local community. Thus John McPhee, an accomplished author of international renown, came to devote some months to the meticulous study of a distinctive society. "The Crofter and the Laird" was the extraordinary result, a work of literary genius. This is not a traveller's tale, nor is it a study of the history or topography of an island; it is instead a perfect mirror of the interactions and relationships of a living and coherent community, one which can be examined and understood only because it is so tightly circumscribed.

Edited by Mary Rubio & Elizabeth Waterson - The Selected Journals of L. M. Montgomery

1889-1910
Lucy Maud Montgomery (1874-1942)-- whose 'Anne of Green Gables' and many other novels are loved by readers around the world -- kept extensive journals for most of her life. This first volume takes her to 1910, the year before her marriage. It recounts her schooldays, her teaching years, and the publication of 'Anne of Green Gables'. The Montgomery journals are especially interesting because they provide a unique social history and the privilege of viewing closely the life of a remarkable woman.

cover1910-1921
This second volume of Lucy Maud Montgomery's journals covers the period from 1910 to 1921, a time of great upheaval, both in her life, and in the world around her. When she wrote the first entry she was already a world-famous author, having published "Anne of Green Gables" in 1908. She records her thoughts and feelings about the death of her grandmother, who had controlled her life so strictly, her marriage, and the move from her beloved Prince Edward Island to a small Ontario town. She describes the rewards and difficulties of being a successful author, her troubled married life, and her responses to the possibility, the actuality, and the aftermath of a World War.

This eagerly anticipated third volume of Lucy Maud Montgomery's journals covers the period 1921 to 1929. In the 1920's, Montgomery is in mature mid-life, and her personal and professional lives are becoming even more complex. Montgomery juggles the demands of motherhood, parish obligations, indifferent household help, grief at the loss of older friends and family, appeals by her PEI clan for advice and assistance-everyday struggles to balance a woman's social and domestic duties.
