Mirabelle, a 20-something with a pile of promises, debt, and depression, fades away in a slow corner of Saks, while trying to sell unneeded formal gloves. She's a wisp of a person, with a cat who doesn't love her, and when she finds a suitor, it's Jeremy, a scruffy artist who babbles on about speakers. When the gentlemanly Porter calls, his appearance in her life begins to make her whole.

Freedom, a history of US ( )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Episode 15 looks at the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in November 1963 brutally opened a decade that promised peace but yielded violence. His successor, Vice President Lyndon Johnson, took the oath of office on Air Force before flying to Washington. In episode 16, Richard Milhouse Nixon served as the thirty-seventh president. His foreign policy accomplishments rank his tenure as one of the most dynamic in presidential history. Inheriting the war in Vietnam from previous administrations, Nixon first sought a military solution, but then turned to diplomacy to end United States' involvement. By approaching Communist China in a historic visit in 1972, Nixon drove a wedge into the powerful Soviet/Chinese block, which began to diplomatically isolate the various Communist dominated countries around the world. This strategy not only ended the war in Vietnam (1973) but also led to the first nuclear arms treaty with the Soviet Union and limited the spread of Soviet influence in the Middle East
