Focussed on their careers, Sally Lancing, the daughter of a Pakistani immigrant and English mother, and John Sommers, the much-loved son of adoptive parents, are equally committed to a child-free future. Then a surprise pregnancy – and doubts about the paternity – hurls them both into new, but separate, lives. Devastated by the loss of her job, her partner, and her home, Sally and her baby son embark on a journey to Pakistan to meet her father’s distant family. Once there, Sally’s eyes are opened to a world that challenges her deepest beliefs. Meanwhile, John hides his vulnerability behind increasing success as a restaurateur. But the baby has rattled skeletons, and, unable to avoid his past, he too embarks on a journey – to find his birth parents. As their horizons broaden and their views are challenged, the child, Sammy, is an innocent but enduring link. Thicker Than Soup is a story of love, loss and discovery that explores the concepts of morality and independence as Sally and John attempt to build separate futures.
Until, that is, providence stirs life’s mixing bowl once more, and Sammy is again the crucial ingredient. Thicker Than Soup is a moving tale of relationships set against a backdrop of both Thatcher’s Britain and a beautifully evoked Pakistan. Inspired by The Ginger Tree by Oswald Wynd, the novel explores the serious issues of cultural integration and diversity as well as adoption, and also, the devastating shock of HIV.
While many computer books designed for college-level courses are largely confined to programming code and languages, Algorithms and Data Structures: The Science of Computing takes a step back to introduce and explore algorithms, the content of the code. Primarily a text about understanding and thinking about computer science as well as working in it, the book focuses on three core topics: design (the architecture of algorithms), theory (mathematical modeling and analysis), and the scientific method (experimental confirmation of theoretical results). A solid understanding of these methods of inquiry helps students see that computer science is about problem solving, and is not simply the memorization and recitation of languages. Also, unlike most computer science texts, which typically cover this material separately, this book teaches them in an integrated manner so students can see explicitly how they interact. The book focuses heavily on recursion as the main control structure in algorithm design, and abstraction through object-oriented programming. A dedicated Web site with online lab exercises and tutorials is available to provide students with hands-on experience.
This complete two-volumes-in-one book details the Voyage of the Jeannette and contains the ship and ice journals of George W. De Long, Lieutenant-commander U.
S.N. and Commander of the Polar Expedition of 1879-1881 (along with the original sketches and maps). This is a first-hand true account of the 1881 loss of USS Jeannette while exploring the Arctic ice. Jeannette, with a crew of 33, collapsed and sank under surging ice in the summer of 1881. Her crew, commanded by George W. DeLong, took to the ice dragging three small boats. When open water was found, the boats were used to sail to the Lena Delta of Siberia, 700 miles distant. DeLong commanded a boat of 14 total crew members, Executive Officer Charles W. Chipp's boat's crew was 8 total crew members, and Engineer Officer George W. Melville's boat had 11. Chipp's boat was lost at sea with all hands. Engineer Melville's boat landed in the southern delta, and DeLong's boat came ashore farther to the north on 17 September 1881.Melville quickly found aid, as did the two hardiest sailors of DeLong's crew soon after. The 12 remaining, including DeLong, perished from starvation or exposure (luckily his journal contained in this book survived to provide a detailed account). Thus of the original 33, 20 did not survive the expedition. This historic voyage is also retold in the recently published bestseller "In the Kingdom of Ice: The Grand and Terrible Polar Voyage of the USS Jeannette" by Hampton Sides.
