THE OGDEN VALLEY NEWS Page 12 Volume VI, Issue III May 15, 2002 Hooked On Books NON FICTION “Seabiscuit” by Laura Hillenbrand If you love horses or excellent writing, you will enjoy this book. It has been on the best sellers list for the past few weeks, and with good reason. Seabiscuit was unique. Seldom does a race horse come along with the speed, intelligence and heart as Seabiscuit. He was one of histories greatest. The book is also about the people who were associated with the horse. The owners, trainers, jockeys and the crowds that loved him. “Princess and Princess Sultana’s Daughters” by Jean Sasson These books give you an inside look at the life of a Saudi Arabian princess and the lives of her daughters. I was absolutely fascinated by these books and recommend them to anyone who wants to understand more about life in the middle east. FICTION “The Shelters of Stone” by Jean Auel This is book five in the “Earth’s Children” series. We have all been waiting for this book. The last one was written ten years ago. Ayla and Jondalar, having made the long trek across the plains, arrive at the home of his people, the Zelandonii. Ayla again assumes the role of newcomer, adapting to a community whose members both welcome and reject her. Jean is already working on the last book in the series, and hopefully it won’t be ten more years before it is published. “A Thousand Country Roads” by Robert James Waller An epilogue to The Bridges of Madison County. For those who loved the first book, this book will bring continued enjoyment as you go back with Robert Kincaid in his memories, and then his journey back to the Roseman Bridge. The YCC—Giving Hope to Thousands of Women By Janet Hoffmann The YCC’s Domestic Violence Victim Assistance Center began in 1978. A tremendous amount of energy and resources unite together, creating a generous contribution from individuals, families, religious groups, fraternal organizations, businesses, local foundations, and federal and state grants. Sheila Richins, Domestic Violence Victim Assistance Center Manager, stated, “When a woman comes to the shel- When a victim and their family comes to the shelter, they immediately receive items to meet their physiological needs. These needs include safety, shelter, medical attention, food, and clothing. Later, they are taught about safety planning, the cycle of domestic violence, that abuse is not their fault, and that there is help available. Then help is provided, allowing them to become reestablished in the community. A licensed clinical social worker comes to the shelter two nights a week CHILDREN’S LITERATURE “Harold and the Purple Crayon” by Crockett Johnson Harold goes for a walk in the moonlight and draws a path to follow with his crayon. It has fun illustrations, and is a good book for all times. “Spirit” by David Clement-Davies A story about the life of a wild mustang. He is captured by horsemen who try to break his spirit. An Indian boy tries to help Spirit escape and be free again. Beautifully illustrated. “A Wringle In a Time” by Madeleine L’Engle A Newberry Medal and Honor Book A story about a brother (called “Moron” by others) who is brilliant and his sister (called “Dumb” by others ) who is also very bright searching for their father (a brilliant scientist) that has disappeared. Mysterious, exciting and fun for all ages. The YCC staff. ter, she often brings very little, besides her battered body, broken spirit, and a sad and disturbing story. Because of our funding and many generous donations, we can provide everything from toothbrushes to therapy at no cost to the victims.” Note: This book review is provided courtesy of “wisebird of eden books and gifts.” SPRING CLEARANCE SALE ALL BOOKS AND GIFTS 25% OFF 7 days to build your library and fill your gift list MAY 15th TO MAY 22nd wisebird of eden Book and gift shop 2595 No. Hwy. 162 #4 Eden, Utah 84310 Susan Hansen Executive Realtor Office Space Available July 1st PAUL JUDD 430-8100 745-5667 USE A VALLEY REALTOR AND A VALLEY RESIDENT 801-710-3833 801-745-0391 SusanHansenEnterprises@ATT.Net Professional Service, Personal Commitment, Customer Satisfaction 15 Years of Sales and Marketing Experience 2580 N.

But that’s not all they do. They give support to victims, helping them to feel safe and comfortable. These workers are the ones that direct clients to their groups, oversee meals, provide shelter maintenance, help with protective orders, and community resources. They dispatch advocates to the hospital for rape victims, and provide referrals and information to those who need assistance. Within 48 hours of coming to the shelter, women meet with a social worker. They discuss what they should do if they are confronted by their abuser. They help victims create an action plan that will allow them to take control of their lives. They are connected to support systems that help them achieve selfsufficiency. An Aftercare Program is also provided. This program provides assistance to clients after leaving the shelter. It helps them set up a new household, and links them with community resources so they can live independently. There are also weekly home visits, help with transportation to job interviews, and doctor appointments. YCC support groups are available where emotional support is provided. Aftercare Case Manager Lorraine states, “The Aftercare Program is one of the most gratifying places to work at the YCC.” The YCC realizes that domestic violence doesn’t just occur among the English speaking population, so they also have a Spanish speaking outreach worker who works with the Spanish speaking population. The YCC helps women rebuild their lives in an atmosphere of hope.
