When Kenneth Earl advertises for someone to help him catalogue his vast collection of music, Maggie -- the final candidate -- is his last hope. What he doesn't know, however, is that this isn't the first time that Maggie has been to Earl House, and it's no coincidence that she applied for the job. As a child, Maggie and her mother lived near the river that runs past the house. Maggie's memories of that time are patchy, like pieces from a jigsaw puzzle that don't quite fit: she remembers Kenneth's son, William; a boat; a dog; she remembers children singing, and being alone, afraid. She remembers -- afterwards -- returning home, mute, refusing to speak. For her, going back to Earl House as an adult offers the chance to fill in the gaps and finally, perhaps, lay the ghosts of her childhood: for her, as for William, this is her chance to reclaim her past. Written in clear, ringing prose, "The Song House" is about language and music, memory and place, about who we are and the narratives we weave about the events of our lives. Beautiful and haunting, its cadences, themes and characters will resonate with the reader long after the final page is finished.

The birth control pill has been called the most important scientific advance of the 20th century. It has been credited, and blamed, with unleashing the sexual revolution, transforming gender roles, redefining marriage and reinventing the modern family. So it's all the more remarkable that something so potent is so misunderstood. This book traces the invention of the Pill half a century ago by its unlikely pioneers from the early feminists looking for a way to free women from the fears of frequent childbirth to a prominent Catholic doctor who was seeking a treatment for infertility and instead found a guarantee of it. It traces the social upheavals that coincided with the Pill's arrival and asks which ones it actually caused.
It follows the unfolding attitudes of women toward the first form of contraception that they could totally control—and the backlash in recent years among social conservatives who once welcomed the pill as a bing and now challenge it as a threat. And it explores the social, political and philosophical issues that men and women face when considering the most private questions of family life.
