ROCHESTER: A MEMOIR

Since 1947 when Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre first appeared on bookstore shelves, fans have read and reread this beloved story of a penniless governess and her brooding mysterious master. They have listened to the demonic laughter and waited anxiously beside Miss Eyre in her master's burned bedroom while he disappeared into hidden third floor rooms without explanation. They have borne his moods, basked in his rare smiles, puzzled at his mercurial personality changes, and despite themselves, fell in love with Edward Fairfax Rochester right along with Jane. In this journal, adapted from Charlotte Bronte's novel, Jane Eyre, Rochester tells his story with unflinching honesty. From his barren childhood of privilege to his tragic first marriage he allows readers into his innermost soul, where they fall in love with him all over again.

ALASKA'S WILD WEST

Reviews

Dear Cora:
Thank you so much for sending a copy of "Alaska's Wild West" to the Smithsonian Institution Archives. I have it up at the reception desk and everyone who looks at it is WOWED! It is incredibly beautiful and the quality is outstanding.

You know what geeks we are when we saw the reference to the end sheets and it was perfect. I heard more than one person say, "Now that"s a proper citation." Anyone using your book who is curious about that image knows exactly where to find it. BRAVA. - Smithsonian Institution Archives


"...a glorious book. I am so delighted that you've written it. I'm sure it will be enjoyed by many and consulted for years and years." - Raymond Hudson, author of Moments Rightly Placed, and Family After All.

Reader Reviews
(the only ones really that count)

Cora, Thank you. When reading the book, I feel as though I'm within the story itself- I felt as though I was her. I could feel her emotions. The transformation to the old Aleut village life, the language and into a sea otter- was real. The suspense was all the way up to the end of the book (because I did not know if both Katherina & Vince were going to share their lives together) as it was written so well. Cora, the descriptions of the land, the way the seagulls sang, the motion of the wind, and the souls of each individual being was intriguing. Again, qagasaakun! —Janis Loresa Krukoff, Aleut, Unalaska, AK

What still stays in my memory is the way you describe the heroine...her entry into that hidden cave where she meets her lover...your marriage of past and present with the flavor of the paranormal. You kept me reading page after page long after the lights should have been out. Your detail in describing the terrors of the ship chilled my blood. In conclusion, as a classroom volunteer, I admired your solutions for present challenges with the young people in remote communities. You offer inspiration for a future of hope. Thank you. —Doris Telleria, kindergarten and first grade classroom volunteer, Garfield School, Boise, Idaho

Now-as to your wonderful book-I enjoyed it immensely, fanciful in parts, mystical actually, but a wonderful yarn, beautifully told in the true storyteller's tradition. Kate Browning and her wonderful cove still move in and out of my thoughts several times a day. Your descriptions are very vivid, painting wonderful pictures...especially for those readers who will never see the unique and distinct topography of the islands. Characters are sharply drawn and evoke a sympathy and connection right away. I liked how the teenagers came into the story. As with Outside Man I couldn't put the book down, yet I didn't want it to end. I loved it. —Reverend Dale R. Kelly, Methodist minister, Anchorage, Alaska

A good read. I loved what you did with the otters. —Shawn Dickson, anthropologist, University of Alaska rural extension director, Unalaska, Alaska
