Once upon a time… Tying the knot actually involved tying a knot-not saying vows. Meanwhile, a thinking cap wasn’t just a cute idea for schoolchildren, but an actual hat worn by scholars in the Middle Ages. Oh, and when you make no bones about something, you should consider yourself lucky you aren’t choking on a chicken foot. What’s in a Word? Answers the question it poses, more than three hundred times over. You’ll learn which side of the bed is the wrong side, and why the word “nickname” is simply the product of slurred speech. Webb Garrison’s etymological journey through the origins of words and phrases, both common and obscure, is sure to fascinate wordsmiths of every stripe.

"Nola's first published book, which I highly recommend to readers, is a testimony to the importance of the preeminent values of trust and faith. As a writer she communicates in an engaging style, producing many powerful and deep insights dressed in the cloak of humor." -H.E . The Hon Robert. L. Morris, Barbados Ambassador to CARICOM and the Association of Caribbean States (ACS) This work represents a journey into a previously under-explored aspect of our spirituality. This book is a must-read, particularly for those of us who are engaged in our own struggles with a humanity that needs to be taught the lesson of faith." -Pedro L.V.Welch (Professor) Dean (Faculty of Humanities), (UWI) "Personal, practical, pulsating and prayer-based, a life-story that will strengthen your faith in God, change your outlook on life and how to deal with the sometimes daunting but 'God-allowed' situations we often face." -Vincent Yearwood, Church Elder and Retired Business Leader "It gives me great pleasure to endorse this great feat of spiritual and emotional victory captured in almost 300 pages of beauty, style, and poise. Nola's commitment to 'share her journey' is beyond admiration. I unreservedly endorse this book as a divinely appointed and written testimony of inspiration, guidance and love." -Dr. Stephen Pilgrim, PhD, MCIM, MIMgt - Former Vice President (USC) "When God speaks, He desires obedience from the heart. This willing submission to God's Word is the golden vein of truth in this inspiring work. For that reason, I recommend it without hesitation. Obedience is life." -Pastor Randy Skeete, International Evangelist
