Winter moon song by Martha Brooks( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many cultures explain why we can see the shape of a rabbit on the moon. Inspired by a Lakota Elder's version of the tale, Martha Brooks created this beautifully written story. A young rabbit asks his mother how the shape of a rabbit came to be on the moon. She tells him the story of Great Mother Creator Rabbit, who came down to Earth to see how her creatures lived. Finding herself cold and hungry, she built a fire, placing a stewpot on top. Another rabbit took it upon himself to jump in, but before he could perish Great Mother Rabbit tossed him up into the moon. This is why all the rabbits now gather to hear the choir sing 'Winter Moon Song.' But when all the rabbits gather to hear it, the little rabbit is disappointed: it had been beautiful, but did not seem magical. In the wintry air, the little rabbit looks up at the rabbit in the moon and is suddenly inspired to sing the song once more. He is joined by others. In singing the song anew, they realize the joy in being one great rabbit family."--Amazon.com

Confessions d'une fille sans coeur by Martha Brooks( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Par un soir d'orage, une jeune fille à l'air paumé, Noreen, débarque dans une petite ville du Manitoba. Elle a dix-sept ans, elle vient de quitter son amoureux Wesley en lui volant son camion et son argent, et elle est enceinte. Elle se voit offrir un abri par Lynda, la propriétaire du petit café où elle est entrée. Son arrivée vient ébranler la vie terne mais paisible de quelques résidants de la communauté: Lynda et son fils Seth, âgé de cinq ans, Dolorès la sexagénaire dont la fille est morte l'été précédent, et Delbert, dont la vie a basculé à cause de la mort de son frère. Ces gens ordinaires tentent d'aider la jeune Noreen, malgré leurs blessures et leurs difficultés personnelles. -- Un beau récit réaliste tout en nuances, dans lequel on voit se tisser, entre des personnages d'une grande profondeur, des liens particuliers et fragiles. Chacun fait face à ses propres peurs et échecs mais est aussi capable de poser des gestes positifs pour affronter l'avenir. Le cadre social dans lequel est situé l'action est par ailleurs fort bien évoqué. [SDM]
