A Light of Her Own  9781944995898
"Set in 1633 Holland, Callaghan's riveting debut convincingly brings to life determined painter Judith Leyster, the first woman to attain master status in the cutthroat profession. At 23, Judith is extremely talented, yet she remains an apprentice longer than her male counterparts due to gender bias. For many years, Judith lives with her teacher, acclaimed painter Frans de Grebber, and his daughter, Maria, Judith's sole friend. Desperate for money for her own studio, Judith becomes involved in a scheme with a Frenchman named Lachine to quietly sell one of her paintings without the knowledge of the Guild. After receiving the coveted master status, Judith takes on young male pupils in her workshop and struggles to house and feed them, along with buying necessary equipment-such as linseed oil, which mysteriously becomes scarce. Judith's story runs alongside Maria's own fascinating story line: she's secretly a devout Catholic in a country demanding Reformed Church membership; longing to atone for her sins, she embarks on a journey to track down a lost religious artifact for her father. Callaghan skillfully balances both the intricacies of the 17th-century Dutch art world and the religious persecution of the time, making this a dextrously woven and engrossing historical novel. (Nov.)"

Goldens Are Here  9780999076620
Excerpt: "The lifeblood of Furman's novel is the seeming conviction that each of his main characters' personal experiments are worthy pursuits because trial and error is how we learn to love one another more deeply. And it's how we create community bonds. But it's, also, how we break systems of oppression. It is an antidote to a corporatized life that aims to consolidate power, monocrop our foods, and drive racial and socio-economic wedges between citizens in order to make profits for a few. For Furman's characters, these experiments with life reveal what they value while shedding light on the circumstances that influence them. Even Furman himself took a chance with such an ambitious novel, but Goldens Are Here astutely investigates one of America's cultural epochs by peeling back the historical rind of who were and reveals who we still are deep-down as Americans."

A Bouquet of Daisies  9781732081567
Excerpt:  "Megan Alice puts the spotlight on dark topics to bring forth an awareness around pain rather than shy away from it.   A Bouquet of Daisies  concludes with reassuring messages of plucking the dark moments out of your past to bask in your future and inner power."
Building the Benedict Option  9781621642176
Excerpt: "Her short and very readable book discusses the pros and cons of this form of hospitality: what to do about non-Catholic friends; whether to micro-organise or not; where is the most convenient meeting-place for people with a long commute, and so on. Libresco is honest about the difficulties involved in what might seem a regular, low-key, exercise of human charity, admitting that she sometimes forgot the purpose of these gatherings and "tended to act as though I had ushered God out along with the departing guests"."
Excerpt: " Basically, Libresco is challenging the reader to a "no excuses" life of hospitality. You'll be motivated without even realizing it. Go and do likewise."

Doors in the Walls of the World  9781621642282
The Evangelizing Parish  9781621642282
Excerpt: "It lays out a plan for what parish life should look like and what it should mean to the faithful. Cardinal Arinze builds his case on the sacred Scriptures, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, papal encyclicals, and other primary sources. Arinze's synthesis of information spells out the ways parishes can evangelize."

  • (9/9) Bookmark posted its interview with Dr. Edward Feser. 
The Case for Catholicism  9781621641445
Excerpt: " The Case for Catholicism is accessible, but it is not for the faint of heart.  Pen or highlighter would be apt companions for taking notes or emphasizing content, particularly in some of the more detail-laden chapters.  Interested readers should be prepared to dig into the nearly 350 pages, hopefully coming away with a stronger and clearer understanding of the faith."
Dorothy Day  9781621641575
  • (10/5) Interview scheduled with This is the Day; live Skype interview, 10:40 am (ET). 
Calm in Chaos  9781621641575
Excerpt: "His combination of wit and erudition in the service of the cure of souls has by its nature always been a rare thing. In this post-literate, ephemera-addicted age, it is an absolute rarity. His new book, Calm in Chaos: Catholic Wisdom in Anxious Times, draws from a timeless well of wisdom to address exigent, timely matters. All is not well in the historical Church, and Fr. Rutler dwells on some of those discontents and deformations in these thirty-six brief but pointed essays. Others deal with contemporary political matters-his essay on President Trump's magnificent speech in Warsaw is particularly powerful-others still on the smorgasbord of cultural interventions that interpose themselves between a lively, inquiring mind and reposeful contemplation."
