Book Description :

In 1959 journalist John Roderick joined the Tokyo bureau of the Associated Press. There, he befriended a Japanese family, the Takishitas. After musing offhandedly that he would like to one day have his own house in Japan, the family—unbeknownst to John—set out to grant his wish. They found Roderick a 250-year-old minka, or hand-built farmhouse, with a thatched roof and held together entirely by wooden pegs and joinery. It was about to be washed away by flooding and was being offered for only fourteen dollars. Roderick graciously bought the house, but was privately dismayed at the prospect of living in this enormous old relic lacking heating, bathing, plumbing, and proper kitchen facilities. So the minka was dismantled and stored, where Roderick secretly hoped it would stay, as it did for several years. But Roderick's reverence for natural materials and his appreciation of traditional Japanese and Shinto craftsmanship eventually got the better of him. Before long a team of experienced carpenters were hoisting massive beams, laying wide wooden floors, and attaching the split-bamboo ceiling. In just forty days they rebuilt the house on a hill overlooking Kamakura, the ancient capital of Japan. Working together, they renovated the farmhouse, adding features such as floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors and a modern kitchen, bath, and toilet. From these humble beginnings, Roderick's minka has become internationally known and has hosted such luminaries as President George H. W. Bush, and Senator Hillary Clinton. John Roderick's architectural memoir Minka tells the compelling and often poignant story of how one man fell in love with the people, culture, and ancient building traditions of Japan, and reminds us all about the importance of craftsmanship and the meaning of place and home in the process.

From one of Australia's Queens of Romance comes the debut in a brand new YA series about secrets, strengths, and what lies beneath the surface. Jasmine Thomas may not be completely normal, but she's a pretty typical seventeen–year–old girl. She hates the rich mean kids, loves her best friends, and can't wait to get out of school each day. Her spare time is spent at The Ring – a boxing gym where she practically grew up – learning karate, boxing and street fighting. So, yeah, Jaz can kick some major butt. Life seems pretty normal until the day Ryan Fletcher enters her gym...mysterious and hot with heaps of bad boy charm. Sure, she checks him out. Who wouldn't? But what doesn't show on his gorgeous abs are secrets and lies that dominate his very grown–up world. Now Jaz has to figure out just how far she is willing to go to know more. Could Ryan really be offering the life–fulfilling life path she's always dreamed of? The first in the MTG Agencies series.
