Of her vocation we read: Only those who have yearned to bring souls to Christ can understand the sentiments which filled Irmas heart during her four years of patient waiting. But the summons came at last. In 1839 Bishop de la Hailandiere of Vincennes, Indiana, an intimate friend of the family, who was in France, seeking aid for his mission, visited Irmas home. Here was the heaven-sent messenger. Never did a Desdemona listen to an Othello with half the eagerness with which Irma listened to the details which Bishop de la Hailandiere gave of those distant lands in America where so many souls were in darkness and in the shadow of death. Immediately after the visit, Irma wrote to a friend: We had a visit yesterday from Bishop de la Hailandiere, who spoke of his diocese and his great labors. Cecile wished to set out with him immediately. I did not say any thing, but I thought, It is there perhaps that God calls me. Eugenie laughs and will not believe me; her gayety and her assurance make me heartsick. Poor dear sister how she will weep when I leave her.
In 1833, Utagawa Hiroshige created the 53 stations of the Tokaido. It was a series of woodblock prints celebrating a famous road running from Edo (Tokyo) to Kyoto. Each print portrayed a unique place, people or event along one of the roads 53 stops. In a modern reflection on Hiroshiges work, The 23 Stops of Subway Line 7 takes the reader along a high-speed journey where each stop unfolds a new tale born of the experiences, impressions, or whims or the author woven together to produce a journey not soon to be forgotten.

Amanda is thrust into the past by a summons to a small town courthouse to testify against her stepfather. Memories unfold of her childhood on an Indian reservation and a relationship with her emotionally distant mother, Genevieve. On that day Uncle Noah reached over, held my hand tightly and whispered, Ista kota [Grey Eyes] I had a vision that youll see the world through different eyes than all our ancestors. Instead youll go down a different path in life and see the world through your birth fathers eyes--a white mans eyes. Tears streamed down his face that day as he continued, A better life will come at a price; but in the end youll be stronger for having gone through it.

Emotionally charged memories of childhood abuse from her sadistic stepfather and the neglect of an emotionally absent mother are relived. Raised in diametrically opposing worlds of an Indian reservation and the borough of Brooklyn, New York, Amanda is introduced to people and events that change her and impact her life forever. Somehow, she must now reconcile with all of it.
Goddammit. If I end up reading this entire freaking series just because of the Wimsey homage character, I swear I will....not be surprised. Okay, so, theres an egregious amount of dialect, and the handling of Hinduism is maaaaaaaaybe a step and a half above Temple of Doom, and the author is clearly v. proud of how shes handling issues of race in Edwardian England with a heroine whose mother was Indian, and while youre totally aware shes tanking it most of the time, you dont realize how much shes tanking it until you read the passage about suffragettes, which is actually pretty decent, and oh my god, are we not even going to vaguely address the fact that the villain might, you know, have some legitimate grievances against the British in India, even if she is batshit crazy? No? Not really? Oh. Okay then. The romance is a little half-hearted, and the fairy tale pastiche doesnt work nearly as well for me as The Fire Rose did (which is a guilty pleasure re-read of mine), and even the magic isnt all that magic-y for me, but DID YOU SEE THAT THERES A NOT-TERRIBLE WIMSEY HOMAGE? Because there is. And hes not terrible. And Im going to end up reading the entire damn series just to watch him swan onstage every couple of chapters, say something pithy, solve someones problems, then swan back off. Hey, I recognize my weaknesses.
Will we survive into the next age? If so, what will it look like and what will it take for us to get there? For the first time since the planet cooled 5 billion years ago, humanity is capable of influencing - for better or worse - the trajectory of evolution. This requires a tremendous responsibility and maturity of the heart. Only through a rite of passage will humanity shift from the love of power to the power of love. No mere sentimentality, this initiation is an urgent and wrenching shift that will uproot and transform every aspect of human civilisation. This paradigm saves energy, reduces disease, is ecologically sustainable, and spiritually uplifting. It focuses on networks rather than markets, favours co-operation over competition, sustainability over exploitation, co-creation of our future over procreation.
