A poor boy falls in love with a privileged young woman and learns a bitter lesson about the haves and the have-nots in this dramatic tale from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Late George Apley. As a young boy, Tom Michael walked with his father, Alfred, along the streets of Michael's Harbor, Massachusetts, and gazed across the water at the stately mansions on Warning Hill. Imagining the lives of the families inside those majestic homes was an enjoyable distraction, a cherished bond between father and son. Years later, after the shocking tragedy of his father's suicide, Tom holds the memory of those walks dear. When he meets and falls in love with Marianne Jellett, daughter of the self-made millionaire Grafton Jellett, he is thrilled to know one of Warning Hill's most prominent families. He is wholly unprepared for the pain that Marianne will cause him and for the discovery of a connection between the ruthless Grafton and his father's death. A mesmerizing tale of passion, power, and vengeance, Warning Hill was the first of John P. Marquand's novels to be set in the stratified New England landscape that defined his legendary career. 1.

David Morrell is best known for his acclaimed thrillers, including The Brotherhood of the Rose, Creepers, Murder as a Fine Art, and his debut novel, First Blood, in which Rambo first appeared. But Morrell is also a master of nonfiction. Twenty of his essays about iconic writers, actors, and singers are collected in Stars in My Eyes: My Love Affair with Books, Movies, and Music. Morrell describes how at the age of 17 he was fired from working on a construction project and walked home in despair, only to turn on the television and see Rod Serling’s Patterns, which gave him a life-long lesson about story construction. He tells how Stirling Silliphant’s scripts for the classic TV series Route 66 prompted him to write to Silliphant for advice about becoming a writer. Silliphant replied with a two-page single-spaced letter that Morrell looks at every day. (Silliphant and Morrell eventually became friends and worked together on the NBC miniseries of Morrell’s, The Brotherhood of the Rose.) The essays in this captivating book range from Henry James’s ghost stories to Steve McQueen’s abusive personality to Bobby Darin’s tragic last days. Did you know that John Wayne was a master chess player or that Frank Sinatra had permanent facial scars or that when Marilyn Monroe was married to Joe DiMaggio, there was a reason apart from baseball for him to be called “the slugger”? Ever heard of Richard Harding Davis? In his day he was the most famous author in America. His adventures provided a model upon which Stephen Crane, Jack London, and Ernest Hemingway built their personas. Alfred Hitchcock, Richard Matheson, Wilkie Collins, John D. Macdonald’s Travis McGee: these are some of the other fascinating figures that Morrell profiles in this mesmerizing collection that’s as compelling as it is revealing. 1. Language: English.

How to Teach Literature: Introductory Course provides a detailed resource for homeschool or conventional teachers and administrators interested in an in-depth study of the subject. This fourth and final book in this series of teaching guides includes information not found in literature anthologies such as the following: suggestions for cultivating a love for literature, detailed analyses of each work, questions for review, test questions with suggested responses, essay topics, audio-visual aids, internet resource materials, classroom handouts, and recommended books that enhance teaching. The author emphasizes two basic reasons for teaching literature: It is instructional and delightful. This book provides a comprehensive methodology for teaching the subject that a teacher could apply to one year's lesson plans without further investment in time. Other books in this series are entitled How to Teach World Literature, How to Teach American Literature, and How to Teach British Literature. What do Truman Capote, O. Henry, and Homer have in common? They are all important writers happily included in Elizabeth Marlow's How to Teach Literature: Introductory Course. Elizabeth lifts the reader to experience the beat in Poe's writing, the stark descriptors in the work of Hemingway, the rhythm of Alfred, Lord Tennyson. She shows us that writing is not just a group of assembled words; it is a matrix of sound, color, meter, and imagery. For an English teacher, this is a helpful reminder and some fresh air. For a student, this is a gateway to the beauty and skill of great writing. To us all, this book is a way for the literature veteran to be challenged, and the newcomer to be lured into the wondrous world of literature. I wholeheartedly recommend this book. -John Baskam, middle school and high school English teacher at Covenant Christian Academy, Cumming, Georgia This is just the sort of guide I wish I'd had when I was homeschooling my children. Elizabeth Marlow addresses both the big picture, which is the main goal of fostering a lifelong love for classic literature in students, and everyday practical concerns. Parents and teachers will find her trustworthy in her mature spiritual grounding, her impeccable literary taste, and her wealth of experience gained from decades of teaching literature in a Christian school. The book is well organized and thorough, and her witty, down-to-earth writing style makes it a pleasure to read. -Marcelle Tuggle, veteran homeschool mom
