Mrs. Christopher’s Monthly Recommendation

Mrs. C’s Pick for November

The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations is a 2018 book by American politician John McCain and his frequent collaborator and former staff member Mark Salter. It is a personal memoir looking at McCain’s last ten years or so in the Senate, and his historic 2008 campaign for the presidency against Barack Obama.  As such it is the final volume of an autobiographical trilogy that also comprises Faith of My Fathers (1999) and Worth the Fighting For (2002).  It also covers his work on behalf of democracy and human rights in Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

The work’s title comes from the second line of the naval hymn “Eternal Father, Strong to Save“, reflecting McCain’s career as a naval aviator.

Mrs. Christopher’s Monthly Recommendation!

Mrs. Christopher’s October Recommendation! The Bear by Claire Cameron

 

“A powerfully suspenseful story narrated by a young girl who must fend for herself and her little brother after a brutal bear attack. While camping with her family on a remote island, five-year-old Anna awakes in the night to the sound of her mother screaming. A rogue black bear, 300 pounds of fury, is attacking the family’s campsite, pouncing on her parents as prey. At her dying mother’s faint urging, Anna manages to get her brother into the family’s canoe and paddle away. But when the canoe dumps the two children on the edge of the woods, and the sister and brother must battle hunger, the elements, and a dangerous wilderness, we see Anna’s heartbreaking love for her family–and her struggle to be brave when nothing in her world seems safe anymore. Told in the honest, raw voice of five-year-old Anna, this is a riveting story of love, courage, and survival”–
