?Our family thoroughly enjoyed your family story! We love to read and are very grateful for books with good moral and historical lessons. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.? - This was written on a card received from a reader living in Pennsylvania. Many have said that it reads like a storybook. ?At 707 pages, ?Vera?s Journey? is extensive but reads like a storybook, rich in description and history, with photos along the way. The book also has an area map, recipe cards, and Ralph and Vera?s family trees. ?Vera?s Journey? takes a historical look at the matriarch of a Mennonite family living in the (Shenandoah} Valley (of Virginia).? A quote taken from A Life Fulfilled featured on the front page of the Saturday Magazine published each Saturday by the Daily News-Record authored by Jacquelyn Walsh, August 29, 2009. You may read the story on line at dnronline.com. Vera?s Journey is about relationships in family, church, and community. It is also a history of bygone years, of suffering and triumph. Some people grow grouchy and irritable as they grow older. Not so with Vera. She grew old gracefully. Complaining was not her way. She learned in some of the most difficult experiences of life to trust God. Once when asked if she fears death she gave a typical, careful response, ?The unknown is before me.? Vera?s life was unusual and yet very normal. What makes Vera?s story so riveting is the combination of longevity and uniqueness mixed with pain and triumph. The final triumph came when God granted her request to take her home. Her parting was a most sacred moment as gathered family members observed her passing. It seemed she moved from one would to the next without a noticeable transition. There was a complete absence of struggle, a serene calmness. Her trust in God was profoundly evident in that defining moment.

Journey To Destiny is the love story of two men, whose relationship spanned forty four years. As life partners, they shared an expedition of discovery; travel, financial success and failure, hardship, illness, tragedy, happiness, indiscretions and infidelities, but most of all, love. Respected for who they were, rather than what they were, their challenges were faced without prejudice or malice. Although Journey To Destiny is in many aspects an insight into the gay lifestyle, more importantly, it dissects the humor, adventure, heartache, devotion and commitment sustained during five decades. With unrelenting candor, the book is an intimate portrait into the reality of bi-polar disorder, Alzheimer’s Disease, cancer, heart and lung disease; endured amidst happiness and heartbreak.

In light of the uses and misuses of history in Zimbabwean politics in recent years, this research report focuses on how versions of the country "s liberation war history have become a site of struggle over the definition of Zimbabwean national identity. As "identity politics" often do, Zimbabwean nationalism draws on a wide field of cultural symbols of identity and political discourses of inclusion and exclusion. Therefore, the report takes a cross-disciplinary approach to the issue of national identity by "mapping out" the imaginary field of Zimbabwean nationalism. This approach opens up the possibility of cross-reading the political discourses of the President and the ruling party ZANU (PF) with opposing voices such as those in the works of the author Yvonne Vera. This cross-reading shows how Vera "s novels and the political discourses participate in the struggle over Zimbabwean national identity by offering different versions of the nation "s history in the form of "patriotic history," "feminist nationalism," or narratives of difference. In this way the research report adds to our understanding of power and resistance in Zimbabwean politics of national identity.
