He counts her smiles every day and night at the train station. And morning and evening, the beautiful commuter acknowledges him-just like she does everyone else on the platform. But Blake Hartt is not like the others . . . he's homeless. Memories of a broken childhood have robbed him of peace and twisted delusions into his soul. He stays secluded from the sun, sure the world would run from him in the harsh light of day. Each day, Livia McHugh smiles politely and acknowledges her fellow commuters as she waits for the train to the city. She dismisses this kindness as nothing special, just like her. She's the same as a million other girls-certainly no one to be cherished. But special or not, she smiles every day, never imagining that someone would rely on the simple gesture as if it were air to breathe. When the moment comes that Livia must do more than smile, without hesitation she steps into the fray to defend the homeless man. And she's surprised to discover an inexplicable connection with her new friend. After danger subsides, their smiles become conversation. Their words usher in a friendship, which awakens something in each of them. But it's not long before their bond must prove its strength. Entanglements from the past challenge both their love and their lives. Blake's heart beats for Livia's, even if her hands have to keep its rhythm. Love is patient. Love is kind. Love never fails. Love never fails, right? In an interwoven tale of unlikely loves and relationships forged by fire, Debra Anastasia takes readers into the darkest corners of human existence, only to show them the radiant power of pure adoration and true sacrifice. Complicated families and confused souls find their way to light in this novel, which manages to be racy, profane, funny, and reverent all at once.

One hundred years ago, the city of Poughkeepsie was a bustling marketplace for the mid-Hudson Valley, while the town of Poughkeepsie was essentially rural and substantially smaller than the city. Two world wars and the arrival of IBM reversed the roles, at least in part. The town grew larger than the city and soon became the center of retail business for the county. Four- and six-lane highways replaced trolleys and trains. The city, however, remained the center of county government. Poughkeepsie 1898-1998: A Century of Change explores not only how South Road became the new main street but also the whole history of Poughkeepsie, from the end of the nineteenth century to the present. Moving through this time period were incoming waves of Irish, Jewish, Italian, Polish, Greek, and Mexican immigrants. The railroads flourished and foundered, and civic, cultural, and social organizations grew.

Folk art has long been a part of the cultural heritage of the Hudson River Valley. The Hudson River school of painting traces its roots to the valley, as does a unique decorative style of stoneware--preserve pots and jugs with scenes of birds, flowers, and animals that were part of the potter's life. While the Hudson River paintings, usually commissioned by wealthy landowners, have achieved universal acclaim, the utilitarian stoneware, owned by even the least successful merchants and farmers, has been widely collected but little understood. Poughkeepsie Potters and the Plague makes an important contribution toward an understanding of the stoneware tradition of the Hudson Valley. Based on years of research, it uncovers for the first time the significance of early stoneware production at Poughkeepsie and outlines its one-hundred-year history. Astonishingly, its early beginnings may be attributed to a series of yellow-fever epidemics that struck New York City during the 1795-1805 period. These epidemics forced a migration of people away from the beleaguered city to places such as Poughkeepsie. Poughkeepsie Potters and the Plague began with a dated butter pot that was made by the first stoneware potters of Poughkeepsie as a tribute to the epidemic victims of New York City in 1798--a single piece of pottery transcending time and location to bring to life the historical triumph of the enduring human spirit.
