The Sunrise Liturgy

A Poem Sequence

Committing theology to poetry is not new, but it's not wildly common. The Sunrise Liturgy aims to do just that. It is a sequence, like liturgy, with a start and a procession and a finish. The sun does the processing, and the play on sun and Son is never far from sight. Sunrise gives the cantus firmus to this theological theme and variations, where the going is by turns easy, by turns thickly polyphonic--take a deep breath! The cantus firmus shifts from voice to voice, disappearing, towards year's end, beyond the audible range of human mortals. But there are other mortals in this procession of the year, "acolytes of the Holy Impotence," and under and beside and through it all flows the St. Lawrence River, le fleuve, winding across the page, a tidal presence at once natural and mystical. As are the snow geese. As is the heron. There is an attempt to wrestle with a credible theodicy, especially environmental. There is a profound penchant for the eremitic, with nods to The Cloud of Unknowing and Gregory of Nyssa. And always there is the priestly sense of "performance," enactment, and Eucharist, for this is a priest speaking.

As Brad swept up the mess, I admired his muscular body. Suddenly, I was filled with a longing to have his arms around me. "No," I thought to myself angrily, looking away from him. "I've got to let this fantasy of mine go. If Brad knew I was in love with him, our friendship would be ruined!" Thoughts like these plagued Sarah soon after her eighteenth birthday after she and her best friend, Brad, almost kissed. Since the day they had become friends, they had been teased that they would one day fall in love, but Sarah had always laughed at the idea. How could she be in love with Brad? She didn't know, but she was convinced that Brad didnt feel the same way. She knew she had to keep it a secret and forget about her feelings. To keep her mind off Brad, she decided to find a new boyfriend right away. Her chance came at the next dance, where she ran into Kevin, who was her first serious crush and who had moved away years ago. Kevin was the perfect distraction, or so she thought.

The Reinforcement of America's Pacific Outposts, 1941-1942

Glen Williford lends new insight into the reasons for America s relatively quick comeback from the attack on Pearl Harbor. For the first time, he tells the complete story of American efforts to build and reinforce its Pacific garrisons in the Philippines and Hawaii during the six months prior to the war and to supply Bataan and Corregidor in early 1942. One effort involved a carefully organized convoy and air ferry routes that were reaching their heights in December 1941. The author fully describes the reinforcement efforts in the context of both the existing military strategies and the realities and physical limits of America s defense capabilities at the time. It concludes with an examination of the transition from the desperate defensive efforts to protect lines of communication to Australia and build a major base there to using these assets to resume the offensive.

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Survivor’s Club novels comes “an epic love story” (Publishers Weekly) of intrigue and deception and the promises that can break a heart.… “I will love you all my life and even beyond that.” Even at fifteen, Jeanne, the privileged daughter of a royalist émigré, knew what she liked: Englishman Robert Blake, bastard son of a marquess. Yet his questionable birth rendered him forbidden. Forced to part, they were still young enough to believe in tomorrow. But as time passed, that brief ephemeral flirtation at Haddington Hall faded into memory. Eleven years later in Portugal, during the Peninsular Wars, they meet again, both of them spies, and destined to be working on opposing sides. He is now a captain with the British army. She is the widowed Marquesa das Minas—sometimes going by the name Joana da Fonte. However for only one of them does the flicker of recognition still burn. Amid the fury of war and in the shadow of secrets, passion flares once again. But for Joana and Robert, each entrusted to a dangerous mission that demands deception, falling in love could be the most dangerous risk of all.

“When a close friend read my third book, Turning to the Sunset, she commented that the title and the section on aging were too sad, too final. I was not surprised, as she has difficulty acknowledging this phase of our lives, but I wanted to address this phase of my life. My poetry file has filled up again and I now want to say that, even though I am aging, I am not quite finished. After all, ‘it ain’t over till it’s over.’ Many of the themes of my first three books remain the same, but I have added a new section ‘Art and Beauty’ because the arts have been a great part of my life. I received my BA in art history, worked for galleries in Santa Fe for over twenty years, and have enriched my life through the years with the contemporary and historic arts in the gallery and museum shows of New York, France, and the American Southwest.”
