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.
