For Cheryl Mendelson, laundering is the best part of housekeeping. It’s full of physical pleasures—the look of favorite clothes restored to freshness and beauty, the tactile satisfaction of crisp linens in beautifully folded stacks. Good laundering preserves things you love and protects your pocketbook. It doesn’t take much time or effort. What it takes is knowledge, and Laundry is the comprehensive, entertaining, and inspiring book on the art of laundering. Culled from the bestselling Home Comforts, with revised and updated information and a new introduction, Laundry is an indispensable guide to caring for all the cloth in one’s home: from kitchen rags to bedding, hand-washables, and baby clothes to vintage linens. Mendelson offers detailed guidance on when to disregard labels, removing stains, making environmentally informed choices, sewing, and storing clothing and fabrics. A much-needed antidote to the standard-issue how-to manual, Laundry celebrates the satisfactions of ironing, folding, and caring for clothes and linens. Both pragmatic and eloquent, Mendelson provides beginning and veteran homemakers with a seamless combination of reliable instruction, time-tested advice, and fascinating personal narrative. As a farm girl in Pennsylvania, Mendelson—who is a philosopher, lawyer, and professor, as well as a homemaker, wife, and mother—received a classic domestic education from her grandmothers, aunts, and mother. Laundry combines the best of the traditional lore they taught her with the latest in technical and scientific information. Writing with infectious love and respect for her subject, Mendelson is sure to instill in readers a newfound affection and appreciation for the art of laundering.

A gentle, engaging novel about the complexities and joys of friendship, in the style of Maeve Binchy and Josephine Cox. Tom and Stephen’s lives are very different. Tom is a good looking man of fifty. Once he’d had it all; his own business, his own home and money in the bank. Then one day it was all gone and he was left homeless, jobless and friendless. He desperately needs someone to give him back his sense of worth; his sense of pride. Stephen is a pompous, overweight little man. He means well, but things never turn out right for him. He is also in his fifties but, unlike Stephen, he’s not bothered about how he looks. He tries to do his best running his company, but his best simply isn’t good enough for his wife, Maura. He isn’t good enough for Maura.Maura is not a woman to cross; one of her withering looks could emasculate any man who does. She’s had time to repent in leisure after marrying in haste twenty three years before. With rich parents, good looks and brains to burn, Maura appears to have it all. Everything she’s turned her hand to has succeeded – except her marriage. In fact, the only thing missing in her life is love. Even her two children were conceived without love. Home Comforts gives the reader an insight into what happens when two men’s lives are changed forever after striking up an unlikely friendship. It is a tale of pride, hope, loneliness and despair.
