It was his final work and the twelve books of the poem occupied him for about ten years from 29 BCE until his death in 19 BCE.
The story opens with a first-person reflection on the protagonist's kidnapping, then segues quickly to two weeks earlier, when events began to build.
So far, nothing extraordinary.
But this isn't just a story of a murder and kidnapping: Bonnie is taking an oath of office, and it's time to celebrate her big promotion: As Bonnie comes to believe her new neighbor is unstable, she also makes some connections between Lemon Face as she's impulsively named the woman and a missing local - and it's then that push really comes to shove in a battle of neighbors turned deadly.
As Bonnie discovers more connections between Lemon Face a. Now, the humor that permeates the plot isn't your slapstick affair: It also means you're not too bright, being that I had to explain it to you. Unlike many a murder mystery protagonist, Bonnie doesn't aspire to gumshoe crime-solving: She simply falls into the role of investigator - but, what a role it is!
Community Affairs is aptly named because many members of the community engage and interact in the course of ordinary and illicit affairs and their potential impact.
Nobody knows who the killer is. And Bonnie is about to break the case wide open - if she survives. It's detective writing at its best: And that's what makes Community Affairs not just a standout, but a top recommendation.
In their lives there are life-threatening attacks and honors - but most of all, there's a camaraderie that only emerges in the direst of situations that are born in challenge and strife and evolve to become the closest of life-long bonds.
But Boots isn't about Afghanistan so much as it's about the aftermath of returning home and facing a different kind of combat - one that tests these relationships years later, when a new life-threatening challenge is presented that pits two allies against one another in a new arena of adversity.
Though the preface sets the tone for an Afghanistan influence, the bulk of the story is set on U. Well, perhaps not 'rest'; because in returning home lies a whole new set of complexities and confrontations.
First of all, don't expect the characters or their concerns to be staid or predictable. There's not just ex-military involved, here: There are plots and subplots, confrontations and dangers, and there's sex and the motivation for finishing a book; one which can be traced back to wartime angst "Skip doesn't mention the two other reasons he has for wanting to finish the book himself - the two innocent worshipers he mistakenly killed in Afghanistan When you have a fast-paced story that embraces elements of ex-military recovery, financial pursuits, motivations for corruption and redemption, and a variety of life-threatening forces at work, you have a story that is packed with diverse elements and approaches to life which are represented by different protagonists and their viewpoints and influences.
In the end Boots on the Ground is about moving full-circle to get out of the woods of not just danger, but moral corruption.
It's about fighting to stay alive even on one's native soil, and about turning the forces of evil into something good. It's complex, it's changing, and it's unpredictable: Plenty; especially if it's written by a high school student during a period where the world is entering war the first world war, that is!
Red Star Diary of was found by Rena Corey in a flea market in - but the story didn't stop there. It was a bit of luck that its buyer specialized in antiquarian documents and took a shine to Bill Noxon's story, using the few clues it contained to track down its author.
Her discovery of Bill Noxon's life apart from his diary adds to his teenage reflections to create a complete picture and involving account of his life and changing world.
Unlike most histories of World War I, Red Star Diary of doesn't come from a journalist, a military fighter their family, or anyone associated with media, politics, or society. It's from a comparative outsider who evolves from his concerns of daily living and his move from city to the country to take in the wider, evolving world.
Just as Bill stands at the threshold of change, so does the world; and as he begins to embrace the idea of this wider world, so readers follow the evolution of World War I events and impact with a far greater personal perspective than most accounts of the times can offer. If you've read a lot of World War I history, you know that it's a fairly singular subject.
Most approaches concentrate on historical events and don't capture daily life in a diary format; and most come from adults, not from teen observers. And Red Star Diary of 's maker was deceased - so Rena Corey's first task was to recreate his words and life as he would have, creating a factual, textual documentary and avoiding the usual tendency to produce chapters in favor of the more personal approach of the diary's original format.
Quotes from Bill's diary are thus interspersed with Corey's words to round out and tell the entire story, and her additions appear in italics to clearly differentiate her voice from his unedited reflections. Add a wealth of period illustrations photos, handbills, postcards, maps, advertising, and more and you have a unique presentation powered by the unusual collaborative efforts of a young boy's words and an antiquarian document enthusiast's attention to recreating vivid history from a single youth's diary: That's all that was discussed in school.
