Sylvia Brooke's narrative spans 80 years, and is a unique personal history enriched by vivid anecdotes too marvellous to have been contrived. The exotic heart of her memoirs is her story of her marriage to Vyner Brooke, last of a long tyrannical line of White Rajahs of Sarasak, and her long years as his consort among primitive people in a Land she instantly recognised as "home". Of her womanizing husband, who had girls until he was 87, she says with abiding affection, "you have to admire a man like that"....

Magda Quandt led a life of cultured leisure with her husband, a wealthy businessman from Berlin. She was sensitive. She was beautiful. She was very, very bored. Raised to play a dynamic role in life, her energies found no outlet in the years of aimless living. Then, in 1930, she attended a rally for a new political party. The speaker was magnetic. Dr. Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Berlin Gauleiter, possessed more than enough passion to re-awaken her spirit. Soon he possessed her. Wed beneath a swastika-draped cross, she became the First Lady of the Third Reich. At Hitler's insistance, she continued in the role despite the humiliations heaped on her by her demonic, lustful husband. She continued until the final act in the Bunker beneath a Berlin in Flames, where she calmly poisoned her six children and died with her husband, her Fuehrer and his thousand-year Reich....

Tyre, Robert.              Saddlebag Surgeon: The Story of Murrough O'Brien, M.D. (Locale: Dominion City; Prairie Provinces; Saskatchewan; Western Canada.)

Harlequin 437 1967, 5th printing. (Mass market paperback) ... Good. ... There is some tearing or separating at the spine ends. ... Surgery today is performed in hospitals, in bright, sterile operating-theatres where the surgeon works with a team of skilled assistants and has at his instant command a great variety of life-saving apparatus and drugs for use in sudden emergency. Until he opened his first one in the small town of Dominion City, Manitoba, in 1901, Dr. Murrough O'Briens had no hospital for his surgical cases. The call to use his knife almost always came at moments of emergency. By lamplight, in the wretched huts of frightened immigrants, he did his surgery on a bed or a kitchen table. A basin on the stove boiled his instruments, and the trembling hand of a family member or a neighbor dripped chloroform to the gauze-masked patient while the scalpel began its work. To the saddlebag surgeons, such dramatic situations were a matter of routine; so were hardships and difficulties of many different kinds. Murrough O'Brien was to find this out when he left England for Canada in 1890 after arousing the disapproval of his family by failing his final examinations at medical school. After several years of adventure he finished his medical training at Manitoba Medical College and set up his first surgery in a shack behind a Chinese laundry in Dominion City, Manitoba. The story of his medical practice on the Canadian prairies is indeed and absorbing one. ... Biography of Murrough O'Brien. ... Locale: Dominion City; Prairie Provinces; Saskatchewan; Western Canada.
