Wendy Jensen and Veterinary Homeopathy

 

 

Sunday, June 26 at 2 pm

Meet the veterinarian who wrote the book on

Homeopathy for Your Pets

Wendy Jensen, DVM

Dr. Jensen is a Cornell-trained New Hampshire veterinarian who has practiced 100% homeopathy for the past twenty years. Certified in veterinary homeopathy by the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy, she has seen her success rate in treating chronic diseases increase dramatically since leaving traditional practice. Realizing the hard work it took to train herself away from the traditional medical model, she wrote this book to help her clients more easily make the same transition.

The Practical Handbook of Veterinary Homeopathy: Healing Our Companion Animals from the Inside Out opens your eyes to the enormous potential of homeopathy. Our beloved animals often suffer from chronic diseases or repeating complaints that respond only temporarily to traditional treatments, requiring frequent or even lifelong dosing. As the staunchest advocate for your own cats and dogs, you can greatly increase their health by learning to recognize chronic disease and partnering with a homeopathic veterinarian. Together, you can avoid, reduce, or eliminate your animal's dependence on medications. Homeopathic veterinarians rely on your observations to evaluate treatment, and this book, full of success stories, will teach you exactly what information is needed in order to help your animals not only heal, but regain their former vitality, energy, and zest for life.

ADI RULE
 

 

St. Martins Griffin presents New Hampshire's newest young writer,
writing for Young Adults 
 

 

The Hidden Twin 
 
For eighteen years a girl with no name, a Redwing, has been hidden away in a small attic room within a city of hissing pipes and curving temples perched on the side of the great volcano, Mol, while her sister, Jey-identical except for her eyes-has lived her life in public as an only child. Their father had hoped the hidden girl would one day grow up to be a normal human girl and not the wicked creature mythology has promised, so he secretly spared her life as an infant.
 
"Writing in the first person, Rule uses sharp, lyrical prose to describe a culture with its own gods and monsters, mixing ancient worlds and new technology... Rule delivers a funny, exciting adventure for readers ready to move on from doe-eyed heroines swooning over rugged heroes." 
Kirkus Reviews

For eighteen years a girl with no name, a Redwing, has been hidden away in a small attic room within a city of hissing pipes and curving temples perched on the side of the great volcano, Mol, while her sister, Jey-identical except for her eyes-has lived her life in public as an only child. Their father had hoped the hidden girl would one day grow up to be a normal human girl and not the wicked creature mythology has promised, so he secretly spared her life as an infant.

But when she switches places with her sister, striking up a flirtation with the son of the Empress while working in the royal gardens and gets attacks by two suspicious priests on her journey home, she is forced to call forth fire to protect herself, unleashing her previously dormant powers and letting her secret out. She soon catches the attention of a cult with a thousand year old grudge as well as a group of underground rebels, both seeking her for their own gain. But when her sister goes missing and the Redwing uncovers a great plot to awaken Mol and bring fiery destruction upon them all, she is forced to embrace her powers.

In Adi Rule's stunning new novel, The Hidden Twin, the girl with no name, must finally choose a name and a path for herself, drawing a line between myth and history to prove herself more than a monster if she is to save both her sister and her home.

Outside Dunhammond Conservatory, there lies a dark forest. And in the forest, they say, lives a great beast called the Felix. But Sing da Navelli never put much faith in the rumors and myths surrounding the school; music flows in her blood, and she is there to sing for real. This prestigious academy will finally give her the chance to prove her worth―not as the daughter of world-renowned musicians―but as an artist and leading lady in her own right.

Yet despite her best efforts, there seems to be something missing from her voice. Her doubts about her own talent are underscored by the fact that she is cast as the understudy in the school's production of her favorite opera, Angelique. Angelique was written at Dunhammond, and the legend says that the composer was inspired by forest surrounding the school, a place steeped in history, magic, and danger. But was it all a figment of his imagination, or are the fantastic figures in the opera more than imaginary?

Sing must work with the mysterious Apprentice Nathan Daysmoor as her vocal coach, who is both her harshest critic and staunchest advocate. But Nathan has secrets of his own, secrets that are entwined with the myths and legends surrounding Dunhammond, and the great creature they say lives there.

Lyrical, gothic, and magical, Strange Sweet Song by Adi Rule will captivate and enchant readers.
