Mollie Peace was a woman of her time, one of a generation that saw the most extraordinary changes. Born in poverty, she lived through the hardship of the early twentieth century, and experienced the tragedies of war. She witnessed the birth of the motor car, the atom bomb, the computer and the Internet. A loyal wife and mother, she raised a family and knew the joy of great-grandchildren. To have experienced all this was no ordinary life. But like so many other women of her time, she nurtured a private desire that was always denied her. She wanted to be a writer. That was her real identity and she was a talented poet. But there was no opportunity for her. Until now. This collection is both a tribute to her and an encouragement to everyone who believes in their own purpose and desires. Never give up. Your words will live on.
Journalist Samela Harris is a working mum with a healthy sense of the ridiculous. While raising her two sons, she attracted droves of hungry lads to generous spreads cooked on her shoestring budget. Along the way she learnt how to create a dinner party from two-minute noodles, how to trick the boys into eating and enjoying prunes, and how to make a meal from scraps while accidentally locked in the kitchen.

Some Presbyterian Denominations have made the mistake of treating the ordination of women as of primary importance and ministers who take a different view, based not on male chauvinism but on their understanding of Scripture, have been forced to resign their charges and leave their denomination. Whilst it is right and proper for such denominations to protect the position of women whom they have agreed ought to be ordained, is it moral to do that at the expense of men who have conscientious and scriptural objections?
Those who are interested in this whole debate, especially within Presbyterian circles will find this new book, written by four Presbyterian ministers in the Church of Scotland, helpful in at least understanding their views on the matter . . . One of the lovely aspects . . . is the gracious spirit in which the authors write.
