Since her treaty marriage at a young age, Tia has lived an opulent yet oppressive life in the palace. But her husband has since died and she relishes her newfound independence. As the queen plans to wed Tia to yet another prince, the powerful mage Shadir plots to expose the family's secret and set his own man on the throne. Tia enlists the help of a reluctant Jewish captive, who challenges her notions of the gods even as he opens her heart to both truth and love.

In this exploration of the intersections of gender, ethnicity, and nation in times of transition to modernity in Caribbean women's narrative, Rodriguez first examines novels of nation-formation and testimonial literature as masculine paradigms. In the second part, she examines three women from the Latin American oligarchy who speak of their nations, and two women, thinking of the histories of the transition between slave and free labor, who write about their islands.

In 1880, Ada Curtis bore Gerald Howard the first of several illegitimate children. Ada was a housemaid, the daughter of a Lincolnshire butcher. Gerald was her employer and the son of a once-grand family now obsessed with its own threadbare nobility. They thereby sent their descendants tumbling chaotically into the twentieth century. More than a century later, inspired by the stories, reinventions and half-truths in her family's past, Elizabeth Speller - Gerald and Ada's great-granddaughter - set out to trace the criss-crossing lines of their history, and, as she recovered from a mental breakdown, she began to wonder if that history offered any explanation of what had happened in her own life. The search brings vividly to life the passions and hopes of four generations, amid tales of wealth inherited and lost, eccentricity, sexual indiscretion and madness. Ultimately, this book will remain in the memory as a beautifully realised sequence of portraits of mothers and daughters.

This book is a structural analysis of creativity. It proposes that there are five essential, recursive, confluent macrosystems that require interconnectedness and intentional evolution for the fruition of creativity, of mastery, of self-efficacy, and of spiritual self-growth. The five systems are: (1) knowledge, (2) mental operations, (3) rich emotional worlds, (4) a sense of purpose, and (5) connecting with others. This text includes an overview of previous research on creativity, while proposing a new theory based on confluence theory, the belief that creativity is best understood as an intersection and recursive interaction among confluencing systems.
