The Girl I Left Behind Me by Jessica Walker,Neil Bartlett Summary

‘... I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s thinking; hang on a minute; “I seem to have the knack of pleasing ladies.” In trousers? With short hair? In public? Was that allowed? Indeed it was.’ A cool and contemporary look at one of the most intriguing aspects of musical theatre – just what is it that makes a woman in trousers so appealing? Accompanied by a piano, mezzo-soprano Jessica Walker dons a few well-chosen items of male attire, giving a supremely well-sung performance that conjures up an entire world, from the swaggering cross-dressers of the Victorian Music Hall to the ambiguous boy-heroes of Mozart and Strauss, to the back-room bulldykes of the Harlem Renaissance. Commissioned and produced by Opera North Projects with the Southbank Centre touring partner Welcome to Yorkshire. The Girl I Left Behind Me is a provocative, flirtatious, personal one woman-guide which deliciously recalls a forgotten chapter of female performance. The Girl I Left Behind Me was performed at The Barbican Centre in November 2011 as part of the Bite Season.

The Girl I Left Behind by Judith Nies Summary

At the height of the Vietnam War protests, twenty-eight-year-old Judith Nies and her husband lived a seemingly idyllic life. Both were building their respective careers in Washington—Nies as the speechwriter and chief staffer to a core group of antiwar congressmen, her husband as a Treasury department economist. But when her husband brought home a list of questions from an FBI file with Judith's name on the front, Nies soon realized that her life was about to take a radical turn. Shocked to find herself the focus of an FBI investigation into her political activities, Nies began to reevaluate her role as grateful employee and dutiful wife. A heartfelt memoir and a piercing social commentary, The Girl I Left Behind offers a fresh, candid look at the 1960s. Recounting Nies's courageous journey toward independence and equality, it evaluates the consequences of the feminist movement on the same women who made it happen—and on the daughters born in their wake.

When Natalia is suddenly offered a one-time chance at freedom, Victor is determined to help her escape, even if it means losing her.

A Soldier Boy's Letters to "The Girl I Left Behind Me" (Expanded, Annotated) by Martin A. Haynes Summary

From his enlistment in 1861 to mustering out at the end of the American Civil War, Martin Haynes kept up a voluminous correspondence with the girl he'd left behind him: Cornelia Lane. Throughout the bloody fighting at Gettysburg, Malvern Hill, and other famous battles, it is remarkable how little it seems Haynes withheld from the woman who became his wife. A very popular song title during the Civil War, every soldier knew "The Girl I Left Behind Me" and had someone about who they could sing it. In excruciating detail, Haynes relates the freezing cold, the killing heat, the torn bodies, deaths of friends, and the victories won by his New Hampshire regiment boys. After the war, Haynes was editor and publisher of the "Lake Village Times" and a United States Representative for the state of New Hampshire. By the time he wrote this book in 1916, he had been married to Cornelia for more than fifty years. Front-line letters and diaries of the Civil War bring an immediacy to a long-ago event and connect us to these everyday men and women who lived it. Every memoir of the American Civil War provides us with another view of the catastrophe that changed the country forever. For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.

Little Girl Left Behind by Sheena Harrison Summary

From the age of three Sheena Harrison was brought up by her grandmother whilst her own mother, Kathleen, sought work in America. Kathleen later returned for her daughter, but her mother refused to hand her over, saying Sheena had settled into her new home. She left once more for the States, believing that Sheena would be loved, cared for and kept safe. What she did not know was that Granny Morag would go on to allow, indeed facilitate, the horrific abuse of little Sheena. From the age of four, she was appallingly abused by members of her own family, being little more than a plaything for their perverted desires. Her uncle and others saw abuse as normal, and they raped and assaulted her with impunity. As she entered her teenage years, Sheena became highly promiscuous and also needed medical attention for some of the damage inflicted upon her. In this book, Sheena tells her full story with heart-breaking honesty. It is a story of cruelty and horror, but also one which shows the remarkable resilience of the human spirit. Sheena's experiences are almost unimaginable and yet she has survived them as a reflective, caring woman who can both forgive and look ahead. It is a story which will make you angry but will also touch your heart.

Marriage and the British Army in the Long Eighteenth Century by Jennine Hurl-Eamon Summary

This volume is the first to focus on the eighteenth-century army wives who stayed at home in Britain. Although the army tried to prohibit marriage of subalternate officers, NCOs, and privates for the entire period of the book (1685-1820), a significant minority persisted in marrying even though they were often separated by war. In contrast to histories that dismiss these couples as less loyal and loving than those who followed the drum together, it argues thatthese couples could forge just as strong a bond. In addition, wives "left behind" still took pride in performing a national service, and married men believed themselves to be better soldiers than theirbachelor brethren. This is an important contribution to the study of regimental cultures in the British army and the complex role gender played within it.
