PARTITION by R.O. Palmer

PARTITION chronicles a microcosm of India in 1947, a British archeological dig in rural Punjab. There, while uncovering artifacts of India’s past, Professor Robert Joyce is enveloped by the political turmoil of India’s present. Like Lord Mountbatten, Britain’s last Viceroy of India, Robert must deal with competing pressures from Muslims, Hindus, and Sikhs. Complicating Robert’s exit strategy, his daughter Serena falls for two graduate students, one Hindu and one Muslim.

"MAXING OUT" by R.O. Palmer

Max was stored in a box for years before being chosen as a gift bear. How will he make the most of his chance to live life outside the box?

Spread the magic by sharing "Maxing Out" with the children in your life.

When asked by children whether Max is a real bear, author R.O. Palmer says, "Max is as real as you want him to be."
