People have dreamed of returning to their youth to correct their errors and naiveté. Dr. Frank Dodd acquired that chance but for a different reason. He and his wife, Dr. Beverly Dodd, are retired professors from a small north Florida College. They had just started enjoying retirement when they found Beverly had inoperable cancer and would soon die. Frank bemoaned the fact he hadn’t insisted on Beverly seeing a doctor a year earlier when she could have been cured. While in a chat room two fellow scientists heard Frank discuss his regrets at not getting his wife help in time and how he wished he could go back in time to court and marry her again, only this time get her to the doctors in time to be cured. The two scientists have been doing experiments in time travel and knowledge transfer between brains. Frank agreed to be used as a guinea pig to be sent back to the time of his youth and to implant his knowledge into himself as a boy. He arrives in 1941 with computers and other modern equipment to sell to the government and industry and invest the proceeds for the benefit of all three while living his life over, striving to have the same experiences and doing the same things from his former youth, but this time avoiding the mistakes of his former life. The dilemma occurs when he falls in love with a woman he meets in this new life. Should he remain single and wait for 15 years to meet and court his wife again or marry the one he falls in love with during his present time.

In Twenty Years of Life, Suzanne Bohan exposes the disturbing flip side of the American dream: your health is largelydetermined by your zip code. The strain of living in a poor neighborhood, with sub-par schools, lack of parks, fear ofviolence, few to no healthy food options, and the stress of unpaid bills is literally taking years off people's lives. Thedifference in life expectancy between wealthy and distressed neighborhoods can be as much as twenty years. Bohan chronicles a bold experiment to challenge this inequity. The California Endowment, one of the nation's largest health foundations, is upending the old-school, top-down charity model and investing $1 billion over ten years to help distressed communities advocate for their own interests. This new approach to community change draws on the latent political power of residentsand is driving reform both locally and in the state's legislative chambers. If it can work in fourteen of California's most challenging and diverse communities, it has the potential to work anywhere in the country. Bohan introduces us to former street shooters with official government jobs; kids who convinced their city council members to build skate parks; students and parents who demanded fairer school discipline policies to keep kids in the classroom; urban farmers who pushed for permits to produce and sell their food; and a Native American tribe that revived its traditional forest management practices. Told with compassion and insight, their stories will fundamentally change how we think about the root causes of disease and the prospects for healing.
Twenty Years After (1845), the sequel to The Three Musketeers, is a supreme creation of suspense and heroic adventure. Two decades have passed since the musketeers triumphed over Cardinal Richelieu and Milady. Time has weakened their resolve, and dispersed their loyalties. But treasons and strategems still cry out for justice: civil war endangers the throne of France, while in England Cromwell threatens to send Charles I to the scaffold. Dumas brings his immortal quartet out of retirement to cross swords with time, the malevolence of men, and the forces of history. But their greatest test is a titanic struggle with the son of Milady, who wears the face of Evil. In his Introduction to this edition David Coward sets both the author and his exciting tale in their historical and cultural contexts. - ;Twenty Years After (1845), the sequel to The Three Musketeers, is a supreme creation of suspense and heroic adventure.

Sometimes published as *Adventures of an African Slaver,* this replica of the 1854 first edition restores its original title. All of its unique power remains intact. Adapted from the journals, memoranda, and conversations of French-Italian seafarer and notorious slaver CAPTAIN THEODORE CANOT (1804-1860), this vivid and unexaggerated depiction of the slave trade between Africa and the New World is prized as a firsthand account of every aspect of the industry, from how slaves are purchased to the first reactions of newly arrived slaves to the New World and beyond. Explicit and shocking, this volume is also a startling illustration of the racist attitudes of its day, from Canot's justifications for the slave trade to the introduction by American journalist BRANTZ MAYER (1809-1879), who compiled Canot's material for publication and defended his subject's work. This is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of American slavery.
Twenty years ago, six Penn students shared a house, naively certain that their friendships would endure--until the death of their ringleader and dear friend Bea splintered the group for good. Now, mostly estranged from one another, the remaining five reluctantly gather at that same house on the eve of what would have been Bea's fortieth birthday. But along with the return of the friends come old grudges, unrequited feelings, and buried secrets. Catherine, the CEO of a domestic empire, and Owen, a stay-at-home dad, were picture-perfect college sweethearts--but now teeter on the brink of disaster. Lindy, a well-known musician, is pushing middle age in an industry that's all about youth and slowly self-destructing as she grapples with her own identity. Behind his smile, handsome plastic surgeon Colin harbors the heartbreaking truth about his own history with Bea. And Annie carefully curates her life on Instagram and Facebook, keeping up appearances so she doesn't have to face the truth about her own empty reality. Reunited in the place where so many dreams began, and bolstered by the hope of healing, each of them is forced to confront the past.
