The owners of the acclaimed stores and decorating firm Circa Interiors present eight stylish, beautiful homes blending comfort, beauty, and function with classic Southern hospitality. A house with an open door is like a friend with an open heart: inviting, generous of spirit, and constant at the core. In their first book, Jane Schwab and Cindy Smith present beautifully arranged interiors in which the trademarks of their style--subtle color palettes, graceful furniture, an emphasis on comfort and entertaining--harmonize to create fresh yet classic rooms. Walking the reader through each home with their characteristic Southern charm, they share their vision and process, from big-picture topics such as room flow and furniture plans, to the importance of entryways and setting a beautiful table. The lessons also extend from the interior to the garden, as Schwab and Smith discuss how outside spaces can become natural extensions of the home for entertaining. Throughout, they share specific ideas for arranging rooms to welcome one, two, or four people as comfortably as fifty, establishing multifunctional, adaptable gathering places that are both gracious and functional for the family of the house as well as their guests.

"Safe Haven" Sarah Davis Fisher and James O'Malley come from two very different cultures: Amish and American Indian.
Sarah lived in a very secluded community; she was well cared for, but she lived without electricity and other modern conveniences. A rape and unexpected pregnancy forced Sarah to make the most important decision of her life.
Reservation life was not pleasant for James. His white father ran off and his American Indian mother couldn't deal with the loss of her husband. Promises of a better life made by his white grandfather were never kept. James longed for a better life. He longed for a family.
When Sarah and James meet, little do they know their differences, as well as what they share, will bind them together forever.
Jessica Chandler and Blake Randall have a lot of unfinished business. Jessica had once idolized Blake and when the opportunity came, she had given herself to him shamelessly. She tossed his duty-bound proposal in his face. After all, she had her pride. An automobile accident took the lives of her parents and caused her many months of physical therapy and grief counseling. Although she was in a wheelchair, her torn body was healing. After several long years, Blake was ending his self-imposed exile. He realized that time away did not diminish his intense desire for Jessica. It did, however, ease the pain of her rejection. Being away from his family had cost him more than he cared to admit and he longed for their close contact. Little did Blake and Jessica know that an unexpected encounter would change the course of their lives.
Microoganisms are distributed across every ecosystem, and microbial transformations are fundamental to the operation of the biosphere. Microbial ecology is the study of this interaction between microorganisms and their environment, and arguably represents one of the most important areas of biological research. Yet for many years our study of microbial flora was severely limited: the primary method of culturing microorganisms on media allowed us to study only between 0.1 and 10% of the total microbial flora in any given environment. Molecular Microbial Ecology gives a comprehensive guide to the recent revolution in the study of microorganisms in the environment. Details are given on molecular methods for isolating some of the previously uncultured and numerically dominant microbial groups. PCR-based approaches to studying prokaryotic systematics are described, including ribosomal RNA analysis and stable isotope probing. Later chapters cover DNA hybridisation techniques (including fluorescent in situ hybridisation), as well as genomic and metagenomic approaches to microbial ecology. Gathering together some of the world's leading experts, this book provides an invaluable introduction to the modern theory and molecular methods used in studying microbial ecology.
