    language (, Nov. 22, 2013)
    "This is a horse story for grown-ups. The Black Stallion for adults.""Written by a horse person for horse people""Enchanting and consuming."Six horses and Saratoga. It's a young trainer's dream come true, and it's happening for Alex at last: Alexander is entrusting the farm's racing string to her while he heads Down Under to help run his sick brother's farm.But Saratoga isn't interested in Alex without Alexander. Unproven and decidedly female in a man's world, Alex finds herself the target of old-school racetrackers certain she married her way into training good horses. At the same time, her naïve assistant, Kerri, is far too interested in the less-than-scrupulous trainer who shares their barn.But running a racing stable doesn't leave much time for petty fights and stable rivalries. Horses need to be worked, races need to be run. And Alex has her eye on something besides the winner's circle: a funny-faced filly, a chestnut nobody with a spotty blaze and a decided lack of brakes. Saratoga thinks the filly has a screw loose. But Alex knows better.From training track gossip to tack-room confidentials, OTHER PEOPLE'S HORSES continues the story of Alex and Alexander -- two Thoroughbred trainers trying to do that right thing -- that began in THE HEAD AND NOT THE HEART.*In keeping with its racetrack theme, this book contains strong language.

    Lore Segal

    eBook (Sort Of, May 31, 2018)
    Nine months after the Nazi occupation of Austria, 600 Jewish children assembled at Vienna station to board the first of the kindertransports bound for Britain. Among them was ten year old Lore Segal. For the next seven years, she lived as a refugee in other people’s houses, moving from the Orthodox Levines in Liverpool, to the staunchly working class Hoopers, to the genteel Miss Douglas and her sister in Guildford. Few understood the terrors she had fled, or the crushing responsibility of trying to help her parents gain a visa. Amazingly she succeeds and two years later her parents arrive; their visa allows them to work as domestic servants – a humiliation for which they must be grateful. In Other People’s Houses Segal evokes with deep compassion, clarity and calm the experience of a child uprooted from a loving home to become stranded among strangers.First published in serial form in The New Yorker in the early 1950s, and as an autobiographical novel in 1958.“A brilliant novel in the form of a memoir”New York Times“Immensely impressive”The New RepublicFirst published in 1958, this is a new edition with an afterword – philosophically astute and beautifully written – by Lore Segal in 2018

    eBook (Kelly O'Callan, July 22, 2014)
    Painfully shy and socially awkward, Ginny avoids engaging in a world filled with "other people" as best as she can. After a failed suicide attempt, Ginny is diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and begins a journey towards improving her distraught life. In her quest to fit in among other people, Ginny studies the behaviors of her picture-perfect new neighbors, Jim and Nina, and tries her best to mimic their life skills. But, will Ginny's attempts to be one of the other people help her fit into their world, or send her crashing back deeper into the dark, isolated world she is desperately trying to escape? "Ms. O'Callan has once again demonstrated that she is a master at storytelling. Her characters' imperfections make this novel sheer perfection!" --- Catherine Wright, Bucks County Review
