Guardian in Disguise
Author: Rachel Lee
Like her journalism career, Liza Enders's sunny outlook has dimmed. A layoff, her move back home and a new low-paying teaching job have her thinking life couldn't be more unfair…or lonely. But when a sexy stranger turns up at the faculty tea, a spark of intrigue—and chemistry—reawakens Liza's investigative instincts… Special agent Max McKenny is not who he claims to be. While he testifies in a homegrown terrorism trial, it's safer that way. The last thing he needs is a nosy ex-reporter blowing his cover. But one look into Liza's inquisitive green eyes and Max can't help but wonder how much he's willing to risk just to hold her…or how he's going to protect her from a diabolical threat.
In the history of electronic communication, the last quarter of the nineteenth century holds a special place, for it was during this period that the telephone, phonograph, electric light, wireless, and cinema were all invented. In When old Technologies Were New, Carolyn Marvin explores how two of these new inventions--the telephone and the electric light--were publicly envisioned at the end of the nineteenth century, as seen in specialized engineering journals and popular media. Marvin pays particular attention to the telephone, describing how it disrupted established social relations, unsettling customary ways of dividing the private person and family from the more public setting of the community. On the lighter side, she describes how people spoke louder when calling long distance, and how they worried about catching contagious diseases over the phone. A particularly powerful chapter deals with telephonic precursors of radio broadcasting--the "Telephone Herald" in New York and the "Telefon Hirmondo" of Hungary--and the conflict between the technological development of broadcasting and the attempt to impose a homogenous, ethnocentric variant of Anglo-Saxon culture on the public. While focusing on the way professionals in the electronics field tried to control the new media, Marvin also illuminates the broader social impact, presenting a wide-ranging, informative, and entertaining account of the early years of electronic media.

Dreaming Mill Valley
Author: Christie Nelson
Dreaming Mill Valley charts the course of love—tangled, crazy, destructive, passionate, and tender—in the spring of 1974 when all the rules have been broken and the heart longs for home. As America rolls through political and social turmoil, in the quirky community of Mill Valley, California, marriages have been tossed overboard, children roam freely, and sex is exploratory. Just across the Golden Gate Bridge in the glittering streets of San Francisco, the gay revolution is in full swing and political protest is mandatory. Jess McCarty, from the novel Woodacre, has returned and is determined to give her daughter a stable home as she maneuvers the risky borders of love and an ambition to dance. Daniel Gessler, a Bolinas surfer and law school dropout, uncovers a family secret that focuses him on reclaiming his grandfather’s legacy. Annie Morrison struggles to balance motherhood with a passion to paint. Stewart Merch, a transplant from Michigan and teacher at Old Mill Grammar School, is escaping his past and searching for his future. Through tales of love, loss, and redemption, Dreaming Mill Valley, portrays the emotional landscape of four ordinary people who rediscover the strength of friendship, resilience of the human spirit, and enduring bonds of family.
