Book Review

Muskoka Maharani - by David McMahon

Harry Barnsley, an Australian reporter, faces the sack if he cannot produce a scoop. Problem is, he hasn’t broken a story in more than 5 years. Then the paper’s advertising director, Charmaine D’Souza, tells him to fly to Muskoka, north of Toronto, where her Indian-born aunt Serena lives. Serena had helped capture a German spy during Second World War, but has remained tight-lipped about it. Will Serena reveal her secret to Barnsley?

Growing up in Marsdengunj, a tiny railway colony in eastern India, Serena Bracebridge-Rhode lived a protected life with her father, an engine driver, whose reputation was severely tainted after the mysterious disappearance of his wife. Serena became a nurse and travelled to London, where, after the Allied retreat from Dunkirk, she was enlisted into ‘Churchill’s secret army’ by a career soldier.

60 years later, she finally breaks her silence  telling Barnsley her story, but the aftershock takes the journalist all the way to the Vatican.

The Eyes of Faith - by Ben Stein

How to Not Go Crazy  - Thoughts to Bear in Mind to Get Through Even the Worst Days.

An emotion common to humankind is fear.  Fear dogs our days, makes us lose sleep, ruins our relationships and takes the joy out of living.

The strongest, best defense against that emotion is to see through the eyes of faith.  As such, Ben Stein brings you 500 ways to look at life so that you can triumph over fear.

Ben absorbed many of the positive thoughts within these pages at 12 Step meetings he has attended, he has applied them to his own life, and he’s found that they work. They’re simple, but extremely effective.

Taken regularly, these concepts will make your life easier, calmer, and definitely more enjoyable.

Ben Stein can be seen talking about finance on Fox News every week and writing about it regularly in Fortune and Yahoo! Finance. He is also a commentator for CBS Sunday Morning and CNN.
