LOVE IS A FOUR-LETTER WORD. For Stephen, love is the most frustrating word in the English language because his love for someone very special must remain hidden; revealing it could disrupt the summer music conservatory where he's a guest. For Andrew, love is a cruel word because he sees the girl he loves choosing to love another, and he can do nothing about it—except resist. For Karen, love is a pleasant experience because she discovers someone who could become more than just a boyfriend...if everything works out. For Judith, love is a long-awaited reward when her boyfriend finally reaches the point where he can admit he loves her...as she loves him. For Doug, love is a shy discovery that opens a new world. Girls haven't chased him, despite his good looks, and realizing he enjoys the company of one particular girl makes the Conservatory a special experience. For Arianne, love is a beautiful and unexpected surprise. She encounters her first boyfriend and suddenly finds herself caring head-over-heels for someone truly special. Jason finds love's gentle pain because, for the first time since he met her, the Conservatory separates him from the girl he's grown to love. And, for someone, love is patient, love is kind, love is never envious or boastful, and love becomes a desperate hope because love may be the only thing that can halt cancer's advance... Join these young people and their cast of friends and family as they experience a summer of music and learn the many aspects of love in Arianne's Waltz. Arianne's Waltz is the third book in the Musica Con Fuoco Series. Mr. Davis has written and published other books through AuthorHOUSE.

FAITH, HOPE, LOVE… Stephen discovers how profoundly his six-week experience with Arianne changed him with school’s resumption. He feels her presence daily and finds he must carry forward the lessons she taught. He meets Gina Cameron in his first class of the new term; she helps Stephen teach his first important lesson through song. Stephen’s friends also make discoveries in their lives. Richard Fuller returns to his classes in Philadelphia more confident and assertive than in the past. Andrew Thompson finds changes in his high school orchestra … some of which enormously displease him. His actions have repercussions far beyond Arianne’s final lessons for him. As school progresses, Stephen, Doug, and Jason prepare the orchestra for their fall performances, the first of which takes them to an elementary school. Stephen meets second-grader Elinor Rogers through an unexpected musical duet. The little girl simply astonishes him. Andrew Thompson’s outburst forces both his principal and orchestra teacher to reassess their positions on the school’s music program. Andrew has thrown them a challenge which they simply cannot ignore. Consequently, Stephen and Doug make a return trip to the Philadelphia area, where they lead an orchestra clinic for Andrew’s orchestra—the orchestra where Arianne once played. The trip inspires the young men from Clarkstowne to make new friends and deepen their friendship with Andrew. And, during this trip, Stephen has another encounter with seven-year-old Elinor, who will put everything he learned from Arianne to the test. She and her mother are on the bus with Stephen and Doug for the return trip to Clarkstowne; when the bus crashes, Stephen discovers that, suddenly, he is all she has left in this world … where the only gifts he can give her are faith, hope, and love. And the greatest of these is love…

Focusing on the years 1842 to 1867, Newspapers and Newsmakers evaluates the impact of the Dublin nationalist press on the Irish nationalist cause in its aspirations to overthrow the 1800 Act of Union and establish an independent Irish nation. The Dublin nationalist journalists were totally immersed in Irish nationalist activities, whether by reporting news or creating it, often risking danger to themselves from the British government. Beginning with The Nation, a newspaper that heralded a new era of Irish political and cultural nationalism, this book charts the Dublin nationalist press's emphatic role in the promotion of Daniel O'Connell's Repeal of the Union campaign with its impressive peaceful mass mobilizations, the bitter and turbulent splits between leading Irish nationalists in 1846 and 1848, and the attempted Young Ireland rebellion. Following the temporary downfall of the nationalist movement, and in response to the Great Famine, the Dublin nationalist journalists sought an ideological reconstruction of the Irish nationalist cause that included a long-term commitment to revolutionary nationalism leading to the rise of the Irish Republican Brotherhood. Drawing upon critical analyses of the political and literary contents of the Dublin nationalist newspapers, emphasis is placed upon the power of ideas, particularly the impassioned dynamics between constitutional nationalism and revolutionary nationalism. This book also focuses on the thinking of high-profile nationalist writers such as Thomas Davis and John Mitchel and the inspiration they gave to their contemporaries and future Irish nationalists alike. Newspapers and Newsmakers establishes that what was written in the Dublin nationalist press during the mid-nineteenth century had a powerful and enduring influence on the development of Irish nationalism.
