Alex Hubbard will be going to jail for not paying alimony and his children will be heading for a foster home, unless he can get his sons away from their mentally ill and suicidal mother by taking custody of them. But to do that, he needs a woman! Where can he find a wife and stepmother who can teach his boys proper values? His only choice is someone he heartily dislikes. He really has no choice, so wedding bells ring for Alex and Shaina. She is thrilled with the challenge of making the ill-mannered boys into gentlemen, but how will she deal with being a wife to Alex? This being the 1950s, Alexs two sons want someone like the mother on Leave It to Beaver, but they get Shaina instead, a woman with proper grammar and manners who loves a challenge. She sets out to either break the boys or turn them into gentlemen. Shaina doesnt do it with love, but with a haughty self-righteousness that repels the men in the Hubbard family. Lessons ends up teaching everyone a thing or two, and also reflects on the serious issues that can arise between children and their step-parents.
Trieste Publishing has a massive catalogue of classic book titles. Our aim is to provide readers with the highest quality reproductions of fiction and non-fiction literature that has stood the test of time. The many thousands of books in our collection have been sourced from libraries and private collections around the world.The titles that Trieste Publishing has chosen to be part of the collection have been scanned to simulate the original. Our readers see the books the same way that their first readers did decades or a hundred or more years ago. Books from that period are often spoiled by imperfections that did not exist in the original. Imperfections could be in the form of blurred text, photographs, or missing pages. It is highly unlikely that this would occur with one of our books. Our extensive quality control ensures that the readers of Trieste Publishing´s books will be delighted with their purchase. Our staff has thoroughly reviewed every page of all the books in the collection, repairing, or if necessary, rejecting titles that are not of the highest quality. This process ensures that the reader of one of Trieste Publishing´s titles receives a volume that faithfully reproduces the original, and to the maximum degree possible, gives them the experience of owning the original work.We pride ourselves on not only creating a pathway to an extensive reservoir of books of the finest quality, but also providing value to every one of our readers. Generally, Trieste books are purchased singly - on demand, however they may also be purchased in bulk. Readers interested in bulk purchases are invited to contact us directly to enquire about our tailored bulk rates.
