The Truth and Beauty by Andrew Klavan

Andrew Klavan sums up the general thesis of his latest book, The Truth and Beauty, near its end: “because beauty is truth and truth is beauty, we know our minds are made to find the meaning in creation. Only a human being – his life, his death, his eternal life – can provide us with what Coleridge called the ‘total idea,’ the idea of which each of us expresses his small piece, his soul.” This is a rather lofty sentiment, and one that requires a good amount of both historical and philosophical context to unpack – context which Klavan artfully supplies in the preceding chapters.

The Ghost Ship of Brooklyn  -  An Untold Story of the American Revolution

The Ghost Ship of Brooklyn is a fascinating narrative of a surprisingly obscure chapter in the history of the American Revolution.    The author tells the story largely from the accounts of 5 separate prisoners of war who were held on the HMS Jersey, a British Warship that was gutted (‘hulked’ was the term used in the book).    As many as 15 smaller British ships, were also hulked and along with the Jersey, served as floating prisons.    Over the 7 years between 1776 and 1783, these ships served in this despicable capacity and were moored at Wallabout Bay on the East River in Brooklyn.

Women of the White House by Amy Russo

This is a good time for a new book about First Ladies. They are the forgotten heroes (or is it heroines) of American history, largely eclipsed by the brighter light cast by famous husbands. Their stories have not received the attention they deserve.
