Daydreams and Jellybeans

Town. Who is that lonely man in town, curled up on the concrete ground? I see
his breath on winter's air, but people pass without a care. His eyes are tired,
hands are worn, clothes still damp from the night before, And I wonder if dreams

The decision of the eventual Confederate states to secede from the Union set in motion perhaps the most dramatic chapter in American history, and one that has typically been told on a grand scale. In Daydreams and Nightmares, however, historian Brent Tarter shares the story of one Virginia family who found themselves in the middle of the secession debate and saw their world torn apart as the states chose sides and went to war. George Berlin was elected to serve as a delegate to the Virginia Convention of 1861 as an opponent of secession, but he ultimately changed his vote. Later, when defending his decision in a speech in his hometown of Buckhannon, Upshur County, he had to flee for his safety as Union soldiers arrived. Berlin and his wife, Susan Holt Berlin, were separated for extended periods--both during the convention and, later, during the early years of the Civil War. The letters they exchanged tell a harrowing story of uncertainty and bring to life for the modern reader an extended family that encompassed both Confederate and Union sympathizers. This is in part a love story. It is also a story about ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events. Although unique in its vividly evoked details, the Berlins’ story is representative of the drama endured by millions of Americans. Composed during the nightmare of civil war, the Berlins’ remarkably articulate letters express the dreams of reunion and a secure future felt throughout the entire, severed nation. In this intimate, evocative, and often heartbreaking family story, we see up close the personal costs of our larger national history. A Nation Divided: Studies in the Civil War

Inventive, outlandish, and tender fairy tales from a bestselling author The fantastic has always been at the edges of Heather O'Neill's work. In her bestselling novels Lullabies for Little Criminals and The Girl Who Was Saturday Night, she transformed the shabbiest streets of Montreal with her beautiful, freewheeling metaphors. She described the smallest of things—a stray cat or a second-hand coat—with an intensity that made them otherworldly. In Daydreams of Angels, O'Neill's first collection of short stories, she gives free reign to her imaginative gifts. In "The Ugly Ducklings," generations of Nureyev clones live out their lives in a grand Soviet experiment. In "Dear Piglet," a teenaged cult follower writes a letter to explain the motivation behind her crime. And in another tale, a grandmother reveals where babies come from: the beach, where young mothers-to-be hunt for infants in the surf. Each of these beguiling stories twists the beloved narratives of childhood—fairy tales, storybooks, Bible stories—to uncover the deepest truths of family life.

Nightmares and Daydreams is a love story: it is also a life story, proving that life, as a child is not always what we hope it should be. Two kids meet and magic happens--but is it magical enough to soothe their battered souls? What if your thirteen-year old friend had his legs blown off from a discharged bazooka shell? You, an eleven-year-old boy sustained life-threatening injuries as well? What if that disaster happened in the basement of your very own home? Not on the battlefield during World War II, nor in a war at all! In 1947 the tradegy flooded the airways and made the headlines in all of the Los Angeles newspapers. What if your grandmother molested you in her cellar when you were just eight years old? You, a very private little girl kept it a secret. No one else knew: No one else will know until now. The boy and the girl, who experienced those nightmares, explore the frightening incidents and delve deeply into their young, unusual lifestyles. So opposite of one another, so hurt in different ways. Both children on their own emotional roller coasters. Now, in Nightmares and Daydreams, Jeannine explores the secrets of their confused and stressful childhoods. But it was not all sorrow for the two, and she shares some of their favorite side-splitting stories of their screwy teen times, madcap memories, and far-out antics they pulled off during their never dull fifty-seven years of marriage.
