Au Congo, avec Brazza et Stanley, Mgr Carrie by Jean Delcourt Summary

Convaincu par sa propre expérience et par celles de ses confrères spiritains, que les efforts des missionnaires français étaient voués à l’échec en Angola, terre portugaise, le Père Carrie obtient en 1869 de ses supérieurs de tenter l’évangélisation d’un des trois petits royaumes encore indépendants au nord de l’embouchure du Congo. Avec le Père Duparquet, vice-préfet, il débarque le 4 septembre 1973 à Landana, centre commercial important du royaume du Cacongo. Il y établit une mission qui essaima vite à Borna et au Sogno, où des Capucins avaient déjà exercé leur ministère au dix-septième siècle. Après l’annexion de Landana par le Portugal, le P. Carrie passa dans la région voisine de Loango où s’exerçait l’influence française depuis les explorations de Savorgnan de Brazza. À cette époque, Brazza pour la France et Stanley pour le Roi des Belges gagnent l’intérieur du pays jusqu’au Stanley-Pool, qui verra les fondations françaises de Brazzaville et belge de Léopold-ville (actuelle Kinshasa). Ce petit livre entend retracer quelques-uns des épisodes de la pénétration missionnaire, notamment grâce aux efforts de Mgr Carrie et de Mgr Augouard, les devanciers des 12 actuels évêques du Congo et de la République Centrafricaine.

Carrie by Neil Mitchell Summary

Brian De Palma's adaptation of Stephen King's debut novel, Carrie (1976), is one of the defining films of 1970s "New Hollywood" style and a horror classic. The story of a teenage social outcast who discovers she possesses latent psychic powers that allow her to deliver retribution to her peers, teachers, and abusive mother, Carrie was an enormous commercial and critical success and is still one of the finest screen adaptations of a King novel. This contribution to the Devil's Advocates series not only breaks the film down into its formal componenets--its themes, stylistic tropes, technical approaches, uses of color and sound, dialogue, and visual symbolism--but also considers a multitude of other factors contributing to the work's classic status. The act of adapting King's novel for the big screen, the origins of the novel itself, the place of Carrie in De Palma's oeuvre, the subsequent versions and sequel, and the social, political, and cultural climate of the era (including the influence of second wave feminism, loosening sexual norms, and changing representations of adolescence), as well as the explosion of interest in and the evolution of the horror genre during the decade, are all shown to have played an important part in the film's success and enduring reputation.

Carrie's Phenomenal Journey by Carrie Whitfield Summary

Carrie's Phenomenal Journey vicariously takes you along on this wild journey of love. We stroll Parisian streets; hike the sandy roads of Niamey, Niger; mingle with people; and immerse ourselves in cultures. Sometimes we watch, laugh, or sigh and assimilate together. "I opened Carrie's Phenomenal Journey and was smitten with a young African American girl's dream of an education. I followed this heroine--and I don't use that word lightly--through falling in love to the betrayal and divorce. Carrie's dream had not died, and soon she found hope and fulfillment in education and a promising career in education. But life was nowhere over. I celebrated as Carrie moves to Paris to study the language in preparation for her service in Niger, West Africa. I flew over the Sahara desert with Carrie, saw the blue men of the Taureg, and clapped with the colorful tribe women under Carrie's nurturing wing. As her days in the field came to a close Carrie returns to family and creating a home in Jacksonville, Florida." --Carol O'Dell, author of Mothering Mother: A Daughter's Humorous and Heartbreaking Memoir "An informative and entertaining book written by someone who spent years living with the peoples of Africa." --AMCS Louis Myers, USN Retired

Carrie of Culver Road by Dee Williams Summary

When tragedy strikes, a young mother sets out to find a place she can call home... Carrie of Culver Road by Dee Williams is a touching story of a young woman's struggle to create a home for her young family in the heart of the East End. Perfect for fans of Nadine Dorries and Pam Evans. As a little girl, brought up in an orphanage, Caroline Parker had always been told that 'Dept Ford' was the place her disgraced mother had come from. So when years later her husband dies, leaving her penniless and with three young children to support, Caroline's first thought is to head for the place she has envisaged as home: Dept Ford. But to her horror, she finds that Deptford is not the country village she'd imagined, but in the middle of London, a huge, teeming city the likes of which she's never seen. Luckily a kindly passer-by takes pity on her weary children and puts them on the tram to a place where she might find lodgings which, as it turns out, is in Rotherhithe, not Deptford. And so it is Culver Road that becomes her true home, where Carrie - as her neighbours call her - and her family, helped out by the irrepressible Flo and her soft-hearted docker husband Alf, find themselves battling through times both good and bad. And it is in Culver Road that Carrie meets Jim, the enigmatic sailor who is to change her life... What readers are saying about Carrie of Culver Road: 'Really enjoyed this book. Moves very quickly and keeps the reader wanting to know what is going to occur next' 'Brilliant read, was sad when it finished' 'I am running out of praise for Dee Williams books because I enjoy them so much'
