The past is another country – this is your guidebook, from nationally bestselling author of The Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England. Imagine you could see the smiles of the people mentioned in Samuel Pepys’s diary, hear the shouts of market traders, and touch their wares. How would you find your way around? Where would you stay? What would you wear? Where might you be suspected of witchcraft? Where would you be welcome? This is an up-close-and-personal look at Britain between the Restoration of King Charles II in 1660 and the end of the century. The last witch is sentenced to death just two years before Isaac Newton’s Principia Mathematica, the bedrock of modern science, is published. Religion still has a severe grip on society and yet some—including the king—flout every moral convention they can find. There are great fires in London and Edinburgh; the plague disappears; a global trading empire develops. Over these four dynamic decades, the last vestiges of medievalism are swept away and replaced by a tremendous cultural flowering. Why are half the people you meet under the age of twenty-one? What is considered rude? And why is dueling so popular? Mortimer delves into the nuances of daily life to paint a vibrant and detailed picture of society at the dawn of the modern world as only he can.

Metamorphosis: A Poetry Manual for Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse is designed to lead the reader to self-awareness and self-expression. The chapters are arranged chronologically, guiding the reader through early childhood, adolescence, courtship and marriage, body issues, and into recovery. Each chapter begins with remarks that provide personal context and ends with writing prompts that lead the reader to think about her own situation, to react emotionally, and to write poems in expressing her own story and emotions. As the reader becomes a writer, she will find the voice she needs to experience healing. Written over the three-year course of psychotherapy, Metamorphosis is a book of transformation. The frightened, distrustful child becomes a confident adult, capable of active participation in life and relationships. She can look at her history and claim it as her truth and cast aside the pretense and lies that she had formerly been forced to live. She can separate herself from her abuser and hold him accountable for his actions, freeing herself from the blame that had wrongfully been placed upon her. She can find the happiness and satisfaction she deserves. This book can be a valuable tool to use in conjunction with or following professional therapy. It can be used not only by survivors of childhood sexual abuse, but also by their partners in life, their friends and family, educators, law enforcement personnel, religious counselors, and even by abusers or potential abusers. Anyone who wishes to understand the effects of childhood sexual abuse can gain much insight by considering the pages of Metamorphosis: A Poetry Manual for Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse.
