This book can be read as a standalone novel. France, 1788. The winds of change are blowing, and all can feel the air upon their skin. This is the time of the Heirlooms, the age where the two mysteries, the Cross and the Song, are created.The priceless necklace, the Cross of Nantes, lost to the Traversier family in 1759, has reappeared in their ancestral home - on the neck of the girl hit by Xavier's carriage. Her name is Estelle Guerrier. Legally white, from Saint-Domingue, she will affect all those in her wake, awakening passion, envy, and violence. Her brother Guillaume - a handsome, profligate rake - having lit Grenoble on fire, walks to Paris and enters the world of Boulevard theater... and Sans-Culotte revolution, a man seemingly doomed to stand in the fire of chaos. 1832 - Haiti, a tension-filled stew of French and African culture, voodoo, Creole, disease, poverty, beauty and tyranny. Decades later, the time of the detectives searching for the two mysterious Crimson Heirlooms. Jake Loring, legally blackmailed to search for the Heirlooms by the mysterious Monsieur Tyran, finds himself in a nation recovering from war and genocide, tasked with finding clues regarding the priceless artifact named The Cross of Nantes. As Jake plots to fake his death and return home to Boston, he discovers the nature of the forces arrayed against him... and new clues of the Cross, which strike too close to home. As Jake searches for meaning decades past the events of the Heirlooms, and the characters he pursues move through their lives, the two timelines become a triangle - impossibly coming together to form meaning and shape, as if time had no power to separate them. Indeed, Jake's search is revealed as part of the ancient mystery.

Gardening with Heirloom Seeds

Gardening with Heirloom Seeds

Many gardeners choose heirlooms because we don't want to grow what
everybody else is growing. We yearn ... They instructed worshipers to eat the

Heirloom seeds are more than the promise of next summer's crookneck squash or jewel-colored zinnias. They're living antiques handed down from one generation to the next, a rich inheritance of flavor and beauty from long ago and, often, far away. They are sometimes better adapted to pests and harsh conditions than many modern varieties and often simply smell or taste better. Gardening with Heirloom Seeds serves as a resource for gardeners, cooks, and plant lovers of all levels of expertise who want to know more about finding, sharing, and propagating the seeds of heirloom flowers, fruits, and vegetables. In these beautifully illustrated pages, Lynn Coulter describes fifty treasured heirloom species, from Frenchman's Darling, a flowering herb whose seeds were pocketed by Napoleon Bonaparte when he invaded Egypt in 1798, to Snow White beets, an old Dutch favorite that will not stain the cook's fingers red. Most of the plants included here will grow all across the United States; a few are best suited for warmer climates. The text is sprinkled throughout with practical advice from heirloom gardeners and lists sources for finding the seeds of many old varieties. Because it also provides ample room for making notes, Gardening with Heirloom Seeds can be used year after year and can become an heirloom in its own right--a personal journal to pass along to the next generation of gardeners.

Growing your own vegetables has never looked, or tasted, so good. Are heirloom vegetables more difficult to grow than conventional hybrids? The Beginner's Guide to Growing Heirloom Vegetables debunks this myth by highlighting the 100 heirloom vegetables that are the easiest to grow and the tastiest to eat. Marie Iannotti makes it simple for beginning gardeners to jump on the heirloom trend by presenting an edited list based on years of gardening trial and error. Her plant criteria is threefold: The 100 plants must be amazing to eat, bring something unique to the table, and—most importantly—they have to be unfussy and easy to grow. Her list includes garden favorites like the meaty and mellow 'Lacinato' Kale, the underused and earthy 'Turkish Orange' Eggplant, and the unexpected sweetness of 'Apollo' Arugula.
