A dismembered floater is the last thing Northville Detective Dan Gold wants to find on a dreary autumn day. Kelly, a young runaway, discovered a gruesome corpse in the midst of her own suicide attempt. Dan suspects she has further information. Fortunately, Kelly is taken to Jenny's Shelter, a shelter for homeless children run by Dan's old acquaintance Jennifer Collier. Jenny built the shelter with her husband's money and is admired by everyone in the community. Dan finds himself drawn to Jenny in romantic ways. Despite Jenny's marriage and the protests of Gold's partner, Xander Nicholson, the relationship grows deeper. But as the relationship grows, it leads Dan to more bodies, more crimes, and some very unpleasant possibilities about Jenny's real work. Aided only by Xander and the children at the shelter, Dan works through layers of secrets, deceptions, and half-truths to discover why his town is full of corpses.

Designing Cultures of Care brings together an international selection of design researchers who, through a variety of design approaches, are exploring the ways in which design intersects with cultures of care. Unique in its focus and disciplinary diversity, this edited collection develops an expanded discourse on the role and contribution of design to our broader social, cultural and material challenges. Based around a unifying critique of the proposition of care as a theoretical framework for undertaking design research in real world contexts, each chapter presents a case study of design research in action. This book aims to provide readers - both academics and practitioners - with insights into the possibilities and challenges of designing cultures of care. The disciplines represented in this collection include architecture, visual communication, participatory and social design, service design, critical and speculative design interventions and design ethnography. These case studies will provide real world insights that have relevance and value to design students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to researchers at all levels within and outside of the academy.

Featuring some of the characters from Sons and Daughters, Jenny's War is an epic story of loss and heartbreak from Margaret Dickinson. Is it possible for a ten-year-old girl to fall in love? Jenny Mercer thought so. Evacuated to Lincolnshire from the East End of London at the outbreak of war, she is frightened of the wide open spaces and the huge skies. The kindly Thornton family soon makes her feel welcome and no one more so than Georgie, the handsome RAF fighter pilot, who is caught up in the battle for Britain's survival. When Georgie is posted missing, presumed killed, Jenny is devastated and there is more heartbreak when her mother demands that she return home to the dangerous city streets now under almost daily attack from enemy bombers. The family flees in the night under the protection of the blackout, heading north out of the city. But to Jenny's disappointment, it is not back to Lincolnshire but into the hills and dales of Derbyshire where they are always on the move, always on the run. There, Jenny is caught up in a life of deception when all she really wants is to go back to Lincolnshire. For Jenny has never given up hope that one day, Georgie will come back . . .
