    Stanislaw is determined to escape the Russians and follow his brother to America, a land where anything seems possible.

    Wisconsin, 1941
    With all the men off to war, Fritzi and her sisters must learn men’s work — from fixing flats to driving the tow truck. They add their own touches, too: neat little caps, short skirts and roller skates, and the All-Girl Filling Station is born. Their peace doesn’t last long though: skilled women are needed to fly planes for the war effort.

    Alabama, 2005
    Mrs. Sookie Earle has just married off the last of her daughters and is looking forward to putting her feet up. But then one day a package arrives. Its contents knock Sookie sideways, propelling her back to the 1940s, and four irrepressible sisters whose wartime adventures force them to reimagine who they are, and what they are capable of

    Intended: A Marriage in Black & White

    by Sharon Nesbit-Davis

    Wednesday, October 12

    10:00–11:30 am

    As a White child growing up during the first wave of the civil rights movement, Sharon Nesbit's early affections and relationships challenged the stagnant mindsets of many around her and paved the path toward her life commitments both to the Baháʼí Faith and to the love of her life, George.

    In 1976, when Sharon and George were wed in a simple outdoor ceremony, there were many concerns amid the support from family and friends. George's mother wondered why her Black son would choose to make his life more difficult by marrying a White girl. Sharon's parents were not in attendance, despite having given their hard-earned blessing after five years. Even among well-meaning friends arose a question: "What about the children?"

    On a basic level, many people would accept the marriage of Sharon and George as normal: two people who loved each other. But in 1976, race complicated things. It still does. But that doesn't mean Sharon and George weren't intended to be together. — Goodreads

    As a biracial, unenrolled tribal member and the product of a scandal, eighteen-year-old Daunis Fontaine has never quite fit in, both in her hometown and on the nearby Ojibwe reservation. Daunis dreams of studying medicine, but when her family is struck by tragedy, she puts her future on hold to care for her fragile mother.

    The only bright spot is meeting Jamie, the charming new recruit on her brother Levi’s hockey team. Yet even as Daunis falls for Jamie, certain details don’t add up and she senses the dashing hockey star is hiding something. Everything comes to light when Daunis witnesses a shocking murder, thrusting her into the heart of a criminal investigation.

    Reluctantly, Daunis agrees to go undercover, but secretly pursues her own investigation, tracking down the criminals with her knowledge of chemistry and traditional medicine. But the deceptions—and deaths—keep piling up and soon the threat strikes too close to home.

    Now, Daunis must learn what it means to be a strong Anishinaabe kwe (Ojibwe woman) and how far she'll go to protect her community, even if it tears apart the only world she’s ever known.
