Up next is Patrick Bouvier Kennedy: A Brief Life That Changed the History of Newborn Care by Michael S. Ryan, RRT-NPS.

On August 9, 1963, the infant son of John and Jacqueline Kennedy, born premature at 34 weeks, died of a common lung ailment after 39 hours of life. This book tells, for the very first time, the entire story of those tense and desperate days from the viewpoint of Patrick's pediatrician and the team of doctors who tried to save him. It also chronicles the captivating history of newborn care and the way the death of the Kennedy baby, faced by his heartbroken parents with consummate courage and grace, triggered a worldwide medical response that ultimately led to major advances in newborn care that have saved the lives of millions of infants.

Michael Ryan, RRT, NPS is a Registered Respiratory Therapist and Neonatal Pediatric Specialist who specializes in respiratory care of the critically ill newborn. He has participated in the successful treatment of thousands of infants who suffer from Respiratory Distress Syndrome, the malady that caused the tragic death of Patrick Bouvier Kennedy. Michael obtained for this book the very first interviews ever given by the Kennedy baby’s gifted medical team. He lives in Venice Beach, California with his wife Judy, a psychotherapist and artist, and their three dogs.

Last but not least, we’d like to introduce Masterpiece by Mary E. Dombach.

An old woman, a seventy-year-old secret and a family without God collide at a family dinner. At this dinner, ninety-two-year-old Grace presents a stunning argument for creationism, but what she reveals about her tragic past rocks the family to its core.

The shocking circumstances of her sister’s death and the tragedies of war are only the prelude to an amazing miracle: Grace once challenged God. The remarkable journey that restores her faith challenges her family to re-examine theirs.

A family’s polarizing experiences separates and unites them at the same time because they are rarely spoken of again. They are kept in a Pandora’s Box and the whole family guards the key.

Mary Dombach lives in Lititz, Pennsylvania. She is a WWII history buff. She enjoys writing, movies, animals, cooking and spending time with her family and friends. Mrs. Dombach is a graduate of Penn State University. She contributes regularly to wounded warrior charities, the USO and animal humane charities. She is the author of two other books, Zeera and War of the Unknown Warriors.

Congrats authors and happy book birthday!
