When Ada Baldwin watches her mother die giving birth to yet another baby girl, she is changed forever by the experience. It is 1884 and Ada and her 3 younger sisters must now learn to live without their beloved mama in their midst. The younger children are not much touched by their loss, but Ada and her next-in- age sister Nell are devastated by the tragedy. They each try to cope in their own way, and Ada finds herself as much in sympathy, as at odds with Nell as they grow into young women. When their engineer father, Robert Baldwin is recalled to Argentina to continue his work there, it is Aunt Abigail who arrives to run the household. She is a stern, God-fearing woman and her presence in the family highlights poignantly the loss of its warm and loving matriarch. A year later, Robert returns home and announces his intention to move the family to Argentina, as soon as possible. Once there, they experience extreme culture shock, and both Ada and Nell miss the life they enjoyed in their home in the south of England. In Argentina Ada encounters loneliness, fresh tragedy and thanks to her sister Nell, she is briefly exposed to nascent women’s rights. In the end Ada seeks her own path towards romance, which leads to a conclusion that no one could have foreseen. This powerful account of the Baldwin’s lives is a gripping story that will keep you reading to the very last word!

One of the leading collectors of memorabilia from the Canadian National Exhibition tells the stories of “The Ex”. Celebrating a joyful feature of our country’s heritage, the full-colour photos of the author’s extensive collection of cherished memorabilia from the CNE bring to life a bygone era. Anecdotes from fellow fans of Canada’s great fair evoke a simpler time when CNE treats cost just pennies, when admission to the fair was a quarter and when the country fell in love with Marilyn Bell as she completed her historic swim across Lake Ontario to Toronto’s shores, and into our hearts. Treasures of the CNE will give readers a chance to reminisce and enjoy tales of the fair’s music, sports, events and amusements from days gone by.
A raw account of my life with as much honesty as I could pack into something fewer than three hundred pages. It’s a tell-all story of growing up in the New Jersey suburbs. Most names are real and all stories are true. I bare all; I spare no feelings—including my own. What happens when an average kid—me, or even a below average kid by some academic standards, tries to punch above his weight? I’m not going to sugar coat it; because I fail most of the time. Follow me through my humorous failures, bad driving habits, too many jobs, miserable bass playing, brushes with the law, awkward sexual experiences and, of course, all the people I’ve encountered throughout my life that make this book worth reading. I strive to be productive but I settle for lazy. I want to be good but I end up being bad. I recognize talent but I just don’t have any. Some people fail up. I fail horizontally. Humorously solving the human condition since 1972.
