The other half of life book
The Other Half of Life: A Novel Based on the True Story of the MS St. Louis by Kim Ablon WhitneyA heartbreaking novel based on the true story of a World War II voyage.
In May of 1939, the SS St. Francis sets sail from Germany, carrying German Jews and other refugees away from Hitler’s regime. The passengers believe they are bound for freedom in Cuba and eventually the United States, but not all of them are celebrating. Fifteen-year-old Thomas is anxious about his parents and didn’t want to leave Germany: his father, a Jew, has been imprisoned and his mother, a Christian, is left behind, alone. Fourteen-yearold Priska has her family with her, and she’s determined to enjoy the voyage, looking forward to their new lives.
Based on the true story of the MS St. Louis, this historical young adult novel imagines two travelers and the lives they may have lived until events, and immigration laws, conspired to change their fates. Kim Ablon Whitney did meticulous research on the voyage of the St. Louis to craft her compelling and moving story about this little-known event in history.

One of my favorite disciples of Carl Jung is analyst and author James Hollis. However, practicing fidelity to the soul is arduous work, no matter the messenger. For those with any interest in Jungian psychology, this is an excellent primer. Not a particularly long book pages it is an incredibly dense read. He covers a wide variety of topics including; how the unlived life of the parent affects the child, the different types of depression, the many faces of addiction, success as a cultural icon, deciphering career and vocation, recovering personal authority, and the importance of dreams. Hollis makes less foreign many Jungian terms such as the unconscious, individuation, transference, anima, complex, projection, and the Self, and is able to craft useful distinctions between words we tend to mix up or misuse:.
