BEATRICE ON HER OWN
Having fled the dreadful blitz in London and landed in sunny Santa Fe, New Mexico, Beatrice Agatha Sims has learned to appreciate a radically different culture and landscape. Her world is rocked again with news of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. First she must contend with losing her American host, the sensible “Clem” – a public health nurse called to Washington to train other nurses. Then the 13-year-old girl must draw on her own experience of being a stranger in a strange land to battle local fears and prejudice when a Japanese Internment Camp is constructed on the edge of town. And will Beatrice have the ‘gumption’ required to face the challenges the war is bringing to everyone?
A stand-alone novel and sequel to the very popular, award-winning True Brit about an English girl fleeing the Blitz and landing in America, based on true accounts.
I HAVE A GRANDMA WHO...
Today’s grandmothers are bold, imaginative, talented women who do what they love: painting, cooking, gardening, biking, exploring and so forth. They love sharing what they enjoy with those they most cherish – their grandchildren. Filled with delightful drawings by Valori Herzlich, this book celebrates the special bond between grandmothers and their grandchildren.
Rosemary Zibart is an award-winning playwright and children’s book author. Her charming picture books include “I have a Grandma who…” (for passionate boomer grandmas) and Kit Coyote: A Brave Pup (for foster children). Her first two middle grade novels, True Brit and Forced Journey, featured youths dislocated by World War 2, and both won the New Mexico Book Award for historic fiction and a Silver Nautilus Award for historical fiction. An upcoming book in this series, Beatrice, focuses on a Japanese Internment Camp built outside Santa Fe which angers locals. Ms. Zibart lives in Santa Fe with her husband and family.
