After her husband disappears, will Maggie Ross be able to support her young family alone? Dee Williams' Maggie's Market is a heart-warming saga of a young mother finding happiness and independence after heartache. Perfect for fans of Sheila Newberry and Annie Murray. 'A brilliant story, full of surprises' - Woman's Realm It's 1935 and Maggie Ross loves her life amongst the stallholders in Kelvin Market where her husband Tony has a bric-a-brac stall and where she lives, with her young family, above Mr Goldman's bespoke tailors. But when one fine spring day her husband disappears into thin air her world collapses. Maggie has no way of knowing where her husband went, nor why he left her so suddenly - especially when she's got a new baby on the way. What she can tell is who her real friends are, as she struggles to bring her children up alone. There's outspoken, golden-hearted Winnie, her fellow stallholder whose cheerful chatter hides a sad past, and cheeky Eve whom she's known since they were girls. And there's also Inspector Matthews, the policeman sent to investigate her husband's disappearance; a man who, to the Kelvin Market staffholders, is on the wrong side of the law, and a man to whom Maggie is increasingly drawn... What readers are saying about Maggie's Market: 'Dee Williams is a page-turner. She creates atmosphere and tension, but most of all, you really don't want to put the book down. There is something for everyone in this story. Buy a copy and travel into another world' 'I loved the characters and camaraderie amongst the market stall holders... a charming story' 'Another lovely, exciting story, really enjoyed it from beginning to end, didn't want to put it down'

More students today are financing college through debt, but the burdens of debt are not equally shared. The least privileged students are those most encumbered and the least able to repay. All of this has implications for those who work in academia, especially those who are themselves from less advantaged backgrounds. Warnock argues that it is difficult to reconcile the goals of facilitating upward mobility for students from similar backgrounds while being aware that the goals of many colleges and universities stand in contrast to the recruitment and support of these students. This, combined with the fact that campuses are increasingly reliant on adjunct labor, makes it difficult for the contemporary tenure-track or tenured working-class academic to reconcile his or her position in the academy.

The day began as most of the other days had begun. Beths husband snuggled close. He smelled of after-shave and toast. He kissed her and their baby boy good-bye as he headed out the door for the train station and work in New York City. Etiennes fiance kissed him good-bye, too, told him the coffee was started and that she just had to run downtown and would be back in an hour or two. And then, two airplanes slammed into the World Trade Center Towers and killed almost three thousand people. And just like that, Beth and Etienne had lost the most special person in their lives; lives that would never be the same. As they each struggle with denial and grief, drowning in pain and fear, lashing out at those trying to help pick up the pieces, grace sneaks up on them. Their healing begins cautiously with the help of two very different souls; two survivors of a different sort both named Maggie.
