New Products: Adoption, Depression, Perfection and Farnsworth

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- New products this week cover a number of subjects that affect everyone. Cedar Fort's new novel, "Never Letting Go of Hope," by Shannong Guymon explores the prejudice sometimes faced by those that adopt or care for children of different races. A new talk tape from Covenant Communications, "Nobody's Perfect ... Yet!" by Curtis Jacobs, focuses on our imperfections and eternal progression, and a self-published book by Rozanne W. Paxman, "Up the Down Hill" looks at her recovery from depression, after waking up in a mental hospital.

In contrast to these books is the new biography by Donald G. Godfrey on Mormon inventor Philo T. Farnsworth looks at the successes and failures of his life. Farnsworth's biggest struggle was simply for recognition as the inventor of television, a struggle that took most of his life, and at which he ultimately failed.

Also released this month is the paperback of Richard Paul Evans' "The Letter," the final book in The Christmas Box trilogy.
