Review: Four Seasons of Loneliness by J.W. Freiberg

four seasons of loneliness book coverReviewed by Holly Madison

Four Seasons of Loneliness is comprised of four different stories which, to my understanding, are all actual true case studies that the author chronicled over his many years as a lawyer. Each of the stories is quite different, but they all have one central theme–loneliness, and the different forms it can take.

I found this book to be quite remarkable. I was drawn in to each of the different stories completely, and found myself fascinated by some stories and enraged by others.

The first story centers around two children from an incestuous family. Their grandparents and mom had been having sexual orgy-type interactions with the children since they were babies, and they were placed with an adoptive family after their birth family relinquished their rights to the children after being caught.

my own words book coverReviewed by Kelly Ferjutz

As a woman of a certain age (or even beyond) I have the greatest admiration and respect for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. From the get-go, she had the wherewithal to do more than just dream–she did!!! And didn’t she just?

Justice Ginsburg has been writing all of her life, with one of her first published pieces happening while in the eighth grade, which is included in this book, as is one of her most recent writings for the Supreme Court, the highlights of the 2015-2016 Term, which just ended about four months ago! In case you’re curious, that covers a span of some seventy years, and she’s not about to run out of words anytime soon, considering the content of that recent piece.

Reviewed by Sarah McCubbin

Through the course of human history, we find a weaving together of events and culture, including people and food, in all manner of combinations. In her book, The Way of Tea and Justice, Becca Stevens paints a picture of the role tea has played as a companion to significant events through the ages, as well as a catalyst for change today. Anyone who loves tea will likely enjoy this book. Her writing is soothing and almost poetic in the way she tells a story painted through the lense of a teacup.

As the founder of Thistle Farms and Thistle Stop Cafe, Stevens has been actively involved in helping women caught as victims and participants
