Shaker Heights, a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, is noted for its affluence, the quality of its public schools and its success at racial integration. But in 1997, an article in the local high school newspaper reporting wide racial disparity in student test scores challenged the community's assumption of racial equality. Shaker Heights: The Struggle for Integration examines the ideals and the reality of one of the few communities in the country where black and white families have lived side by side for over 40 years.

This is the second book in the Call the Midwife trilogy. Very interesting but more focused on her nursing patients than her midwifery practice. If you've seen the miniseries on PBS, you'll recognize most of the stories in this volume.  Shaker Heights Public Library Catalog

Another enjoyable tome featuring Inspector Darko Dawson. This one doesn't manage to capture the wonderful contradictions of modern and traditional society in Ghana that so enriched the first two books, but I enjoyed the mystery nonetheless.  Shaker Heights Public Library Catalog
