In the early nineteenth century, thousands of emancipated and freeborn blacks from the United States returned to Africa to colonize the area now known as Liberia. In this, the first systematic study of the demographic impact of this move on the migrants, Antonio McDaniel finds that the health of migrant populations depends on the adaptability of the individuals in the group, not on their race. McDaniel compares the mortality rates of the emigrants to those of other migrants to tropical areas. He finds that, contrary to popular belief, black immigrants during this period died at unprecedented rates. Moreover, he shows that though the emigrant's mortality levels were exceptionally high, their mortality patterns were consistent with those of other populations. McDaniel concludes that the greater the variance between the environment left and the environment entered, the higher the probability of contracting a new disease, and, in some cases, of death from these diseases. Additionally, a migrant's health can be affected by dietary changes, differences in local pathogens, inappropriate immunities, and increased risk of accidents due to unfamiliar surroundings.

When her husband left her for a younger woman, Rose Franklin bought a camper and started traveling. Eventually, she put down roots in Shady Grove, a campsite along the Mississippi River in West Memphis, Arkansas, where she has lived for almost two years now. After helping to solve two murders in the area, Rose is now entangled in the murder of a young man from South Dakota—a murder which Chariot, a young woman at the Shady Grove campground, stands accused. As Rose tries to help her friend Chariot out from under the shadow of suspicion and solve the murder, she also struggles with unresolved maternal instincts, and her own difficult choices. A spiritual and riveting follow-up to Jacob’s Ladder, Swing Low, Sweet Chariot is ultimately a story about redemption, and the chariots that carry each of us from hardship and darkness, to understanding. JACKIE LYNN is a writer and journalist. Writing under the name Lynne Hinton, she is the New York Times bestselling author of Friendship Cake, as well as the author of Hope Springs and Forever Friends (The Hope Springs Trilogy), among other books, and writes a monthly column for The Charlotte Observer.

Praise for Down by the Riverside: "Lynn elevates the genre with her blend of philosophy, romance, spirituality, and elegant writing . . . This is a truly lovely book to be read slowly, savoring life by the river in the cool shade." -- Kingston Observer "Lynn's accomplished debut mystery is a righteous blend of spirituality and suspense." --Booklist Praise for Jacob’s Ladder: It’s a fast-paced, funny ride down the river with cleverly drawn characters worthy of the journey.” --Sallie Bissell, author of In The Forest of Harm “Jacob’s Ladder is perfect light reading for sleepless nights and an exploration into the concept of innocence rewarded. “ --Katherine Valentine, author of Haunted Rectory, and the award winning Dorsetville series

Meet Karen Blackwell; the actress, the singer, musician and manager of a Christian Rock Band, the private investigator, the army recruit and, finally, the latest patient at the State's Mental Hospital. Miraculously Karen cheated death during the years leading up to her hospitalization, as she mixed alcohol, cocaine and an all too trusting lifestyle with the undetected mental illness. Who knows where Karen would be today had she not cried out to Jesus... But He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
