From Booklist
After her mother dies, Sapphire leaves Martinique and travels to England with her adopted sister and godmother to find the Earl of Wessex, whom Sapphire has just discovered is her real father. But the earl is dead, and a distant cousin, the American Blake Thixton, has inherited the title. Convinced that Sapphire is nothing more than a fortune hunter, Blake refuses to honor her claim. To force Blake and her English relatives into acknowledging her, Sapphire agrees to her godmother's outrageous plan that the three of them pretend to be in the market for protectors. Sapphire never expected that Blake would then offer her a position as his mistress or that she would be sorely tempted to accept. Rogers' legion of readers will be delighted to find that her latest historical romance features the same brand of arrogant, bold, and...

Book Review
Claireece Precious Jones endures unimaginable hardships in her young life. Abused by her mother, raped by her father, she grows up poor, angry, illiterate, fat, unloved and generally unnoticed. So what better way to learn about her than through her own, halting dialect. That is the device deployed in the first novel by poet and singer Sapphire. "Sometimes I wish I was not alive," Precious says. "But I don't know how to die. Ain' no plug to pull out. 'N no matter how bad I feel my heart don't stop beating and my eyes open in the morning." An intense story of adversity and the mechanisms to cope with it. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

At its heart, there is a six-pointed star; it is the biggest, most perfect gem ever discovered. The peasant wants 66 zebu the oxen that represent spiritual wealth to the Malagasy and Lonny agrees.

The Stream & the Sapphire: Selected Poems on Religious Themes (New Directions Paperbook, 844)
Denise Levertov
0811213544
May 1997
Paperback
·
 
Card catalog description
Conceived as a convenience to those readers who are themselves concerned with doubt and faith. The Stream & The Sapphire presents a compact thematic grouping of thirty-eight poems, originally published in seven separate volumes. The earliest poem here dates from 1978, and though the sequence is not wholly chronological, "it does," as Denise Levertov remarks in her brief Foreword, "to some extent, trace my slow movement from agnosticism to Christian faith, a movement incorporating much of doubt and questioning as well as affirmation."

From School Library Journal
Grade 2-4-This mystery set in the early 1900s has vivid descriptions of clothing and finery, stilted dialogue, and a heavy-handed but well-meaning lesson. Samantha and her adopted sister, Nellie, join their grandparents on an ocean-liner voyage to Europe. When fellow passenger and archaeologist Fitzwilliam Wharton discovers that the legendary Blue Star sapphire he was carrying to a museum in London has gone missing during dinner, everyone traveling first class becomes a suspect-including the girls' French tutor. While Samantha and Nellie frantically try to prove her innocence, a subplot finds Nellie struggling with the prejudices of the day toward the Irish. In the end, the girls solve the mystery and everyone learns a valuable lesson about jumping to conclusions. Interesting endnotes about ocean travel at...

From Publishers Weekly
Gurley-Highgate makes her debut with an overplotted tale tracing the fortunes of a line of African-American women over two centuries. The story begins in 1749 with a defiant, unnamed woman kidnapped in Sierra Leone and sold as a slave in South Carolina. She gives birth to a daughter, Sapphire, who is sold at age five. Sapphire's life, like her mother's, consists of trials "that exceeded the limits of human tolerance"-she is beaten and raped, and she develops a hardness and a rebellious streak that she passes on to her three daughters and their offspring. Sister, the last of Sapphire's descendants to be born a slave, finds herself struggling to raise two children while enduring the betrayals of a philandering husband after the Civil War. Her granddaughter, Vyda Rose, defiantly embraces prostitution and eventually...
