The Story Within Us: Women Prisoners Reflect on Reading features in-depth, oral interviews with eleven incarcerated women, each of whom offers a narrative of her life and her reading experiences within prison walls. The women share powerful stories about their complex and diverse efforts to negotiate difficult relationships, exercise agency in restrictive circumstances, and find meaning and beauty in the midst of pain. Their shared emphases on abuse, poverty, addiction, and mental illness illuminate the pathways that lead many women to prison and suggest possibilities for addressing the profound social problems that fuel crime. Framing the narratives within an analytic introduction and reflective afterword, Megan Sweeney highlights the crucial intellectual work that the incarcerated women perform despite myriad restrictions on reading and education in U.S. prisons. These women use the limited reading materials available to them as sources of guidance and support and as tools for self-reflection and self-education. Through their creative engagements with books, the women learn to reframe their own life stories, situate their experiences in relation to broader social patterns, deepen their understanding of others, experiment with new ways of being, and maintain a sense of connection with their fellow citizens on both sides of the prison fence.

The contributors to The Story Within share powerful experiences of living with genetic disorders. Their stories illustrate the complexities involved in making decisions about genetic diseases: whether to be tested, who to tell, whether to have children, and whether and how to treat children medically, if treatment is available. More broadly, they consider how genetic information shapes the ways we see ourselves, the world, and our actions within it. People affected by genetic disease respond to such choices in varied and personal ways. These writers reflect that breadth of response, yet they share the desire to challenge a restricted sense of what "health" is or whose life has value. They write hoping to expand conversations about genetics and identity—to deepen debate and generate questions. They or their families are affected by Huntington’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, genetic deafness or blindness, schizophrenia, cystic fibrosis, Tay-Sachs, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, fragile X, or Fanconi anemia. All of their stories remind us that genetic health is complicated, dynamic, and above all, deeply personal. Contributors Misha Angrist, Amy Boesky, Kelly Cupo, Michael Downing, Clare Dunsford, Mara Faulkner, Christine Kehl O’Hagan, Charlie Pierce, Kate Preskenis, Emily Rapp, Jennifer Rosner, Joanna Rudnick, Anabel Stenzel (deceased), Isabel Stenzel Byrnes, Laurie Strongin, Patrick Tracey, Alice Wexler

The stories presented in Peninnah Schram's highly anticipated Stories within Stories: From the Jewish Oral Tradition are drawn primarily from talmudic and midrashic sources, medieval texts, and the Israel Folktale Archives. Each enchanting story-within-a-story is part of the Jewish oral tradition and continues to enlighten, educate, and entertain audiences as have all of the author's previous works. The types of stories found in this wonderful collection (described by Peninnah Schram as "frame and chain stories") have been widely popular in both Jewish and non-Jewish literary traditions. Since Jews have lived in so many places, they have been influenced by the stories told by their surrounding neighbors. For example, this genre of tales has been especially popular in the Jewish stories of the Middle East, having been influenced by the structure and contents of Arabic literature. Stories within Stories contains fifty stories, mostly made up of folktales. Various types of stories are interspersed so that a humorous story is followed by a romantic tale, which is followed by a religious tale, which is followed by a tall tale, and so on. The stories come from various ethnic communities represented in the Israel Folktale Archives including Morocco, Iraq, Kurdistan, Persia, Yemen, and Eastern Europe. Gifted and highly acclaimed storyteller Peninnah Schram contributes to the ever-growing library of Jewish folklore collections, thus actively helping to restore the rich treasures of Jewish oral tradition in our contemporary world.

"Sophisticated and thought-provoking ... an urban fairy tale for grown ups." Avid Ashley *** GOLD MEDAL Winner in the 2016 Global Ebook Awards USA *** RED RIBBON Winner in the 2015 Wishing Shelf Awards UK A mystical forest ... A forgotten history ... A love that spans lifetimes First in the two-book Epiphany series and a captivating blend of history, mystery, contemporary romance and magic, THE GOLDING is a story-within-a-story, a whimsical tale about money and its unknown otherworldly origins. Rosetta Melki (part-time tarot reader, struggling sole parent and full-time idealist) begins a reading group to examine a fantasy novel, and discovers the book to be anything but fiction. The book, written in the 1770s by Edward Lillibridge, is a hidden history that reveals the true beginnings of the global monetary system. Lillibridge’s story surrounds ancients from a gold-obsessed empire and the sprites they oppress: elfin clan dwellers whose currency of choice is kindness. Whether discontent in rich and poor will ever make way for a world free of war and poverty, whether anyone can believe enough in humanity’s true ancient history to activate the dawn of a benevolent new era, remains to be seen. One thing, however, is certain. A prophecy must be fulfilled by someone in modern times, and the time-crossing sprites of Lillibridge’s descriptions have set their sights on Rosetta. But first they must ensure she meets her one true love. Feet-on-the-ground finance executive Matthew Weissler is hardly a likely candidate -- even less so after their klutzy introduction. He’s polished, successful, admired, and ... is disturbed to find he’s being followed by an elf. ****Includes detailed Character List Awards: GOLD MEDAL - 2016 Global Ebook Awards USA (Spiritual/Metaphysical Fiction) RED RIBBON - 2015 Wishing Shelf Awards UK (Books for Adults - Fiction) 5-STAR SEALS (x4) - 2015 Readers' Favorite USA (Fantasy) What readers are saying on international sites ... ... This book is the book of tomorrow, it will become a classic in years to come ... CillaWilson Australia The first thing that struck me about Terry’s debut novel was her seemingly effortless ability to entwine the contemporary and historical aspects of the story. At times the writing is nothing short of spellbinding, something that is rare these days, and even rarer at the beginning of a literary career. Rosey UK It's not often a book will inspire me to re-read paragraphs, but Epiphany - THE GOLDING's insights were well worth savouring. Both the inner and outer stories were equally compelling, and made for an easy transition from one time-frame to another. Sophisticated and thought provoking ... an urban fairy tale for grown ups. Avid Ashley Australia EDITORIAL REVIEWS A true delight. The unique dual storyline is such an interesting slant in story telling, and is very much worth the read. Tracey A Fisher, Readers' Favorite Sonya Deanna Terry writes with a sure hand. She artistically weaves a huge amount of history, spiritualism, philosophy, and romance into a powerful tale of good and evil. Epiphany will appeal to anyone interested in arcane and esoteric subjects such as the tarot, dragons, ancient civilizations, lost histories, and reincarnation. These are very big subjects and many readers will learn a lot. Ray Simmons, Readers' Favorite Every page has you wanting to turn to the next one to see what's going to happen, and the whole story has been brought together very nicely. It is a highly entertaining book and I really look forward to the next installment. Anne-Marie Reynolds, Readers' Favorite Sonya Deanna Terry has deftly and creatively combined two story lines, bringing them closer together as the book progresses until they actually overlap. While both are fiction, the two plots are taken from real life - greed, oppression, a struggle to survive and, as a balance, hope, love, faith and friendship. Epiphany has everything you want in a fantasy story - great characters, vivid descriptions of another place and time, believable present day action, and clear cut villains and heroes with a few surprises. Well worth reading for fun and for a subtle yet critical look at the future of the real world. Melinda Hills, Readers' Favorite Sonya has a talent that literary agents refer to as the ability to "Spin some yarn." As the pages began turning faster and faster, I was left wanting more. I cannot wait for her next book. Stephen Fisher, Readers' Favorite

This paper examines whether Yehudit Silverman's therapeutic approach, The Story Within: Myth and Fairy Tale in Therapy, can be beneficial in the treatment of clients with anorexia. Through a case study design, this paper demonstrates how this approach was useful with one anorexic client in working through difficult personal material, through the use of fiction and metaphor. It also demonstrates that Silverman's therapeutic approach allows therapeutic goals to be met, including the instillation of a sense of autonomy, a sense of self, and self-acceptance, as well as aiding the anorexic client in emotional expression. In addition, this paper demonstrates how Silverman's approach aids in overcoming an anorexic client's resistance to therapy, the therapeutic alliance, and the confrontation of personal material. The study design consists of a case study, a narrative account chronicling the use of Silverman's therapeutic approach with an anorexic client over a period of seven months, as well as an analysis of how The Story Within: Myth and Fairy Tale in Therapy is useful in working with anorexic clients.
