Bordeaux le 3 novembre 1938 Mon cher Calet, je vous envoie par le même courrier un exemplaire de Zobain livre de début et de début modeste, sur lequel j'aimerais avoir votre opinion. Me ferez-vous l'amitié de m'envoyer très bientôt Le Mérinos et La Belle Lurette que j'ai lus avec vous ne pouvez savoir quel intérêt, mais que j'avoue ne pas posséder ? [...] Jeudi [27.1.55]. Cher ami, Le petit mot écrit de votre main m'a fait le plus grand plaisir. Même écriture qu'avant, même papier... Vous allez bientôt vous remettre. Et alors, je pourrai vous parler de " ma " maladie. Vous ai-je dit que je suis atteint du côté du cœur, et que cela me gêne beaucoup ? Ma vie s'en trouve entièrement changée, en plus mal. Je travaille peu. [...]

It was a life she didn't know. Choices she never made. And a spiritual journey she MUST forget! After collapsing at her birthday party, Genevieve finds her mind drifting like a dream, yet it feels different, beyond slumber somehow. Soon, with all her senses acutely aware, she is living the pivotal choices of her lifetime, but with one extraordinary difference. She now finds herself also experiencing "the other choice" as well. But why? Is there a reason for it all? A spiritual guidance trying to tell her something she needs to know? Helpless to stop the emotional roller-coaster, Genevieve finds both ecstasy and hell in the alternate realities she seems destined to experience. Then, the phenomenal odyssey ends. As Genevieve opens her eyes, she notices her loved ones from the party, surrounding her, happy to see she's awake. But as objects and people come into focus Genevieve realizes things aren't the same anymore. Nothing is the same. In this compelling, fictional tale, that embraces emotions of love, fear, hope and loss, author, Sheryl M. Frazer weaves one choice versus another into a dramatic telling of shifting realities and unexpected twists. Submerge yourself in Genevieve's incredible journey and see why her reflections are not what you might assume!

Ailing seventeenth- and eighteenth-century French men and women, members of their families, or their local physician or surgeon, could write to high profile physicians and surgeons seeking expert medical advice. This study, the first full-length examination of the practice of consulting by letter, provides a cohesive portrayal of some of the widespread ailments of French society in the latter part of the early modern period. It explores how and why changes occurred in the relationships between those who sought and those who provided medical advice. Previous studies of epistolary medical consulting have limited attention to the output of one or two practitioners, but this study uses the consultations of around 100 individual practitioners from the mid-seventeenth century to the time of the Revolution to give a broad picture of patients and physicians perceptions of illnesses and how they should be treated on a day-to-day basis. It makes a unique contribution to the history of medicine, as no other study has been undertaken in the consulting by letter of surgeons, as opposed to physicians. It is shown that the well-known disputation between physicians and surgeons tells only a part of the history; whereas in fact, necessity required that these two 'professions' had to work together for the patients' good.

In her surprising, entertaining and persuasive new book, award-winning author and psychologist Susan Pinker shows how face-to-face contact is crucial for learning, happiness, resilience and longevity. From birth to death, human beings are hard-wired to connect to other human beings. Face-to-face contact matters: tight bonds of friendship and love heal us, help children learn, extend our lives and make us happy. Looser in-person bonds matter, too, combining with our close relationships to form a personal "village" around us, one that exerts unique effects. And not just any social networks will do: we need the real, face-to-face, in-the-flesh encounters that tie human families, groups of friends and communities together. Marrying the findings of the new field of social neuroscience together with gripping human stories, Susan Pinker explores the impact of face-to-face contact from cradle to grave, from city to Sardinian mountain village, from classroom to workplace, from love to marriage to divorce. Her results are enlightening and enlivening, and they challenge our assumptions. Most of us have left the literal village behind, and don't want to give up our new technologies to go back there. But, as Pinker writes so compellingly, we need close social bonds and uninterrupted face-time with our friends and families in order to thrive--even to survive. Creating our own "village effect" can make us happier. It can also save our lives.

Join Lennie on this heartbreaking and hilarious journey of profound sorrow and mad love, as she makes colossal mistakes and colossal discoveries, as she traipses through band rooms and forest bedrooms and ultimately right into your heart.
