4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, suspenseful and thought-provoking., February 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
AGS Johnson's first novel is a tale of suspense weaved seemlessly through the story of a broken family, whose demons are no longer able to be ignored. Johnson strategically uses humor to keep the story light, without detracting from the deeper themes running throughout: the need to be loved and the struggle we all have to find our place in life. Set in a small town in Wisconsin with the back drop of the Vietnam war and the rise of feminism, The Sausage Maker's Daughters is much more than entertaining: it is thought-provoking. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Courageous and a page-turner!, September 15, 2010
I just finished Stephanie Hubbard's memoir, "Bluff Island Rescue Service" and was so impressed with her writing, her insights and her courage to be so candid about her life. I am recommending it to all of my friends and encourage anyone who has an interest in human behavior to read it too. One of the things I liked most about "BIRS" was that while it was a personal story, Hubbard's ability to look at things analytically really set it apart from other memoirs I have read that just tell a shocking story. Hubbard's story is shocking at times, but she handles it with such grace that it doesn't feel exploitative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply breathtaking, August 13, 2009
I was deeply moved and inspired by this breathtaking collection of photography. Sometimes beautiful, sometimes gritty, these photographs really do convey a thousand words, each. More than a history of a humanitarian assistance organization, this book takes you on a journey around the world to some of the most talked about crises of the last 25 years. A wonderful gift for the photographer, humanitarian, and historian.

A fresh voice who takes you to the depths of despair with a lightness that makes it more than bearable.
