"They call themselves the May Mothers--a group of new moms whose babies were born in the same month. Twice a week, they get together in Brooklyn's Prospect Park for some much-needed adult time. When the women go out for drinks at the hip neighborhood bar, they are looking for a fun break from their daily routine. But on this hot Fourth of July night, something goes terrifyingly wrong: one of the babies is taken from his crib. Winnie, a single mom, was reluctant to leave six-week-old Midas with a babysitter, but her fellow May Mothers insisted everything would be fine. Now he is missing. What follows is a heart-pounding race to find Midas, during which secrets are exposed, marriages are tested, and friendships are destroyed"--

Rosewater : a family's story of love, captivity, and survival by Maziar Bahari( Book )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maziar Bahari left London in June 2009 to cover Iran's presidential election, assuring his pregnant fiancee that he'd be back in just a few days, a week at most. But instead, he would spend the next three months in Iran's most notorious prison, enduring brutal interrogations at the hands of a man he knew only by his smell: Rosewater. For the Bahari family, wars, coups, and revolutions are not distant concepts but intimate realities they have suffered for generations: Maziar's father was imprisoned by the shah in the 1950s, and his sister by Ayatollah Khomeini in the 1980s. During the worst of his encounters with Rosewater, Maziar drew strength from the memories of his loved ones, and prayed that he would be released in time for the birth of his first child. Riveting and heart-wrenching, Rosewater offers insight into the past seventy years of regime change in Iran, as well as the future of a country where the democratic impulses of the youth clash with a totalitarian government. It is the story of a family's courage in the face of repression, and of one man's journey to freedom
Jantsen's gift : a true story of grief, rescue, and grace by Pam Cope( Book )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ten years ago, Pam Cope owned a hair salon in the small town of Neosho, Missouri. Her life revolved around her son's baseball games, her daughter's dance lessons, and family trips to places like Disney World. She had never been out of the country, nor had she any desire to travel far from home. Then, on June 16, 1999, her life changed forever when her fifteen-year-old son Jantsen died from an undiagnosed heart ailment. Drowning in sadness and needing to get as far away from her loss as possible, she accepted a friend's invitation to visit orphanages in Vietnam. From the moment she arrived, everything began to shift. By the time she returned home, she had a new mission: to use her pain to change the world, one small step at a time, one child at a time. Within one year, Pam had rescued thirty children from the streets of Vietnam. Within five years, that number had grown to more than two hundred. Then, in 2006, a New York Times article about young children being sold into slavery in Ghana galvanized her to travel thousands of miles to intervene on their behalf. Today, Pam is the director and founder of Touch A Life, an organization dedicated to helping at-risk children all over the world, and she is working to build a center in Northern Ghana that offers a safe shelter and a promising future for the children she has rescued from slavery. A deeply moving account of loss and recovery, Pam Cope's story offers inspiration to anyone who has ever suffered great personal tragedy or has dreamed about making a difference in the world.:--From book jacket

Il paese dei bambini che sorridono by Pam Cope( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in Italian and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La vita di Pam cambia inesorabilmente in un giorno di giugno, quando Jantsen, suo figlio quindicenne, muore all'improvviso. La serena esistenza della famiglia viene sconvolta. Oppressa dal dolore, Pam precipita nel buco nero della depressione, in un baratro che pare inghiottirla. Sprofondare o reagire, allontanandosi il più possibile dalle cose che le ricordano il passato. Così lei, che non ha mai varcato i confini del Missouri, accetta di andare in Vietnam con alcuni amici. Quello che vede la travolge. Dietro le cartoline del turismo, si cela un mondo in cui migliaia di bambini vivono per strada, abbandonati a se stessi. Costretti a mendicare. A fare lavori pesantissimi. O peggio ancora, esposti al pericolo di essere rapiti e venduti sul mercato del sesso. E negli orfanotrofi la situazione è solo di poco migliore: non ci sono fondi, e sul viso dei bambini si legge il vuoto di chi non ha affetti né prospettive. In fondo al cuore, Pam sente riaccendersi una fiamma. Eccolo il dono di Jantsen. Occuparsi di quei bambini, riportare sui loro visi la luce del sorriso. Non è facile, ma ormai niente la può fermare

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY JON STEWART | Previously published as Then They Came for Me When Maziar Bahari left London in June 2009 to cover Iran's presidential election, he assured his pregnant fianc?e, Paola, that he'd be back in just a few days, a week at most. Little did he know, as he kissed her good-bye, that he would spend the next three months in Iran's most notorious prison, enduring brutal interrogation sessions at the hands of a man he knew only by his smell: Rosewater. For the Bahari family, wars, coups, and revolutions are not distant concepts but intimate realities they have suffered for generations: Maziar's father was imprisoned by the shah in the 1950s, and his sister by Ayatollah Khomeini in the 1980s. Alone in his cell at Evin Prison, fearing the worst, Maziar draws strength from his memories of the courage of his father and sister in the face of torture, and hears their voices speaking to him across the years. He dreams of being with Paola in London, and imagines all that she and his rambunctious, resilient eighty-four-year-old mother must be doing to campaign for his release. During the worst of his encounters with Rosewater, he silently repeats the names of his loved ones, calling on their strength and love to protect him and praying he will be released in time for the birth of his first child. A riveting, heart-wrenching memoir, Rosewater offers insight into the past seventy years of regime change in Iran, as well as the future of a country where the democratic impulses of the youth continually clash with a government that becomes more totalitarian with each passing day. An intimate and fascinating account of contemporary Iran, it is also the moving and wonderfully written story of one family's extraordinary courage in the face of repression. "I really connected to Maziar's story. It's a personal story but one with universal appeal about what it means to be free."--Jon Stewart "An important and elegant book ... a prison memoir enlarged into a family history."--The New Republic "Clear and compelling ... engaging and informative--a gripping tribute to human dedication and a cogent indictment of a corrupt regime." -- Washington Independent Review of Books "[Rosewater] is not only a fascinating, human exploration into Bahari's personal experience ... it also provides insight into the shared experience of those affected by repressive governments everywhere." -- Mother Jones "A damning account ... [Rosewater] turns a lens not only on Iran's surreal justice system but on the history and culture that helped produce it." -- The Washington Post "[Rosewater] is a unique achievement. It is a story not just of political cruelty (a subject Bahari treats movingly), but also about the two poles of Iranian political culture, bent together in upheaval." -- The Guardian (UK) "A beautifully written account of life in Iran, filled with insights not only into the power struggles and political machinations but into the personal, emotional lives of the people living in that complicated country. Maziar Bahari is a brave man and a wonderful storyteller." --Fareed Zakaria From the Trade Paperback edition
