Roman Catholic sisters first traveled to the American West as providers of social services, education, and medical assistance. In Across God’s Frontiers, Anne M. Butler traces the ways in which sisters challenged and reconfigured contemporary ideas about women, work, religion, and the West; moreover, she demonstrates how religious life became a vehicle for increasing women’s agency and power. Moving to the West introduced significant changes for these women, including public employment and unconventional monastic lives. As nuns and sisters adjusted to new circumstances and immersed themselves in rugged environments, the West shaped them; and through their labors and charities, they in turn shaped the West. These female religious pioneers built institutions, brokered relationships between indigenous peoples and encroaching settlers, and undertook varied occupations, often without organized funding or direct support from the church hierarchy. A comprehensive history of Roman Catholic nuns and sisters in the American West, Across God’s Frontiers reveals these women as dynamic and creative architects of civic and religious institutions in western communities. About the author: Anne M. Butler is trustee professor emerita at Utah State University and past editor of the Western Historical Quarterly. Author of numerous articles and books, including Daughters of Joy, Sisters of Misery, she has published extensively on matters of race, class, and gender in the history of the American West. 1.

First, she must devote her energies to just one man: the coldhearted skinflint who refuses to release her inheritance.Michael Cavensham, the Marquess of McCalpin, is not a heartless man. When he learns that Miss Lawson has been forging his name to procure funds, he can't bring himself to have her arrested - not when the bold-faced embezzler is so enchantingly beautiful.

The Washington Post said, "Nobody does smart, gutsy, funny, sexy women better than Susan Isaacs". Add to that praise the adjective "strong", and you've got Susan's latest protagonist, Marianne Kent. Her life may not seem thrilling - living with her widowed mother, majoring in economics, working in an elegant dress store after classes to put away money for graduate school - but she's determined to make a better life for herself and her mom. One night, she comes home to see the light is out again over the door. That old fuse box? Again? Except when Marianne gets inside, she stumbles over something, and it's immediately clear what has happened: Her mother has been murdered. The NYPD is stumped. Marianne's father, an army captain, was killed in battle when she was a year old, and whatever other family she has are so distant she's never met them. Whom can she turn to? Marianne does what strong women always do: She turns to herself. With help from Laurie Fishbein, her BFF since second grade, she becomes her own private detective to solve the case of her lifetime. Susan Isaacs was dubbed "Jane Austen with a shmear" on NPR's Fresh Air. Among her 13 novels are Almost Paradise, Shining Through, and After All These Years. She has written screenplays for two films, Compromising Positions (adapted from her novel) and Hello Again, as well as a nonfiction work, Brave Dames and Wimpettes: What Women Are Really Doing on Page and Screen. Currently, she serves as chairman of the literary organization Poets & Writers. A member of the National Book Critics Circle, she has reviewed for New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Washington Post, and Newsday. She is a past president of Mystery Writers of America and belongs to the Creative Coalition, PEN, and the International Association of Crime Writers. Susan is a trustee emerita of the Queens 1.

Praise for "Boston, My Blissful Winter The keen eye and pen of French author Alain Briottet deftly sketches the luminous beauty of Boston's soul in winter. I became viscerally engaged and surprised by his character's discovery of the cityscape, its neighborhoods and the interior spaces where Bostonians retreat from the cold, seeking companionship and shelter. This book marvelously reveals the elusive and timeless qualities of our town that led me to seek out the unexpected during all its seasons.Bárbara de Bragança,Trustee of the French Cultural Center, Boston, MA The keen observer in Boston, My Blissful Winter, not only introduces us to specific Boston locations and neighborhoods but also to a variety of denizens, iconic individuals, young and elderly, ranging from Brahmins to French Canadians. Challenging weather, and musical motifs enhance the unforgettable portraits, creating an atmosphere at once nostalgic and palpable. The prose reads like poetry and the vivid descriptions remain as relevant today as when they were written................Lia PoorvuRetired Lecturer, Tufts UniversityOfficier des Palmes Académiques The charming recollections of a Frenchman's first encounters with Boston society. The young banking intern recounts his impressions of familiar places, from the Ritz to the Blue Diner, with original perceptions and affectionate humor. Deftly rendered into English from the original French, this is a book to savor and return to again and again to revisit a favorite story.Mary Louise Burke, PresidentBoston/Strasbourg Sister City Association During his posting to the French Consulate in Boston, Ambassador Alain Briottet came to observe and befriend neighbors of Beacon Hill with whom he came to feel a common bond. Now, in twelve luminous stories, he shares observations and insights of encounters, that are often brief, and that may mark you permanently. Briottet's compassion and gift for rich friendships provide moving portrayals that belie the stereotype of frigid, puritanical Brahmins. Paulette Boudrot's admirable translation of his lyrical prose reveals that though winter in Boston may be cold, the lives of the inhabitants are decidedly not.Margaret Collins Weitz, AuthorSisters in the Resistance: How Women Fought to Free France 1940-1945 The magic of a winter in Boston is here, revealed in its many hues. Each story presents a different situation affording the chance to experience the tiniest wonder - changes in the atmosphere, footsteps in the snow, the slant of a winter sun - all captured in the author's crystal-clear, thoughtful and detailed writing. He makes us see and feel what he has seen and felt, offering us the fabric of a life that we discover to be our own.Alain Malraux, Playwright, Paris In sensitive, lyrical prose, these short stories highlight the ephemeral nature of time, as experienced by a young intern who spends a winter working at a large bank in Boston. The parallels between his experience and that of the author, a career diplomat stationed in Boston during the 1980s, are unmistakable. It is the contrast between the harmony of nature and the disruption of the real world that is the strength of this collection; these stories make you think about life.Phillipe MartialHonorary Director, Library & Archives, French Senate, Paris

Archives as institution have long history and in the ancient time people used them to keep valuable manuscripts which had administrative, legal and property related evidential value. In Ethiopia the culture of maintaining and keeping archives in religious institutions, governmental and noble men in a separate repository had been taken as a norm. It was because of the presence of this good tradition that Ethiopia, especially men and women of noble birth, used to dedicate their private house for a blessed task of up keeping precious archival materials and as repository and research center. The private house of Tsehafi Tezaz Weld Meskel Tariku, which was transformed to Archives Center in 1970 under a custody of a Trustee Organization and later fully owned by Institute of Ethiopian studies (IES) of Addis Ababa University, is a good case to this point. The Archives and Research center host good amount of historical documents, especially land tenure related archival materials. However, due to political turmoil following regime changes and even because of lack concern from the university's authorities, the archives and research center are not in a good state of existance.
