Book Description
Eloise, which started out as a poorhouse, later became known as Wayne County General Hospital. From only 35 residents on 280 acres in 1839, the complex grew dramatically after the Civil War until the total land involved was 902 acres and the total number of patients was about 10,000. Today, all that remains are five buildings and a smokestack. Only one of them, the Kay Beard Building, is currently used. In Eloise: Poorhouse, Farm, Asylum, and Hospital, 1839-1984, this institution and medical center that cared for thousands of people over the years, is brought back to life. The book, in over 220 historic photographs, follows the facility's roots, from its beginnings as a poorhouse, to the founding of its psychiatric division and general hospital. The reader will also be able to trace the changing face of psychiatric care over the years. The book effectively captures what it was like to live, work, and play on Eloise's expansive grounds.

Lady Eloise and Friends

Publisher: Covenant Books, Inc.
ISBN: 1636303625
Category : Juvenile Fiction
Languages : en
Pages : 150

Book Description
Lady Eloise and Friends is a series of books for children from third to sixth grade (and advanced readers in second grade). From this series comes another series for younger children in preschool through second grade called Adventures With Little Eloise. This first book in the series teaches about friendship and forgiveness, social skills, bullying, and conflict resolution. Critical thinking and problem-solving skills are developed as the students make predictions, build vocabulary, develop reading comprehension, and practice new vocabulary as they write in their journals along with the story. Through the voices and antics of the characters, we hope our young readers will learn to see the world with awareness, sensitivity, compassion, and empathy. We hope to help children see each other with love and with respect for their differences and not with fear. The second book in the series teaches about multiculturalism, diversity and inclusion, tolerance and acceptance, and also teaches more about conflict resolution when dealing with bullies. The third book in the series introduces humans into the story and is based on real-life experiences of Vicki with her childhood, lifelong best friend, Shirlee, and their horses. They were the little girls who could be seen riding their horses while standing up, riding backward, sideways, and any other way they could think of. This series of stories begins with their real-life horses, Lady Eloise and El Zo Beyni and includes other horses their families had over time. Thank you for supporting our book series, and the orphans at Rivers of Mercy Children’s Home in Juarez, Mexico.

Book Description
Everyone agrees Miss Eloise will make the perfect bride… until she runs away from her own wedding. And straight into the arms of an unsuspecting rake. There was no plan involved. Eloise fled in a moment of sheer panic. If she'd given it any thought at all, her plan wouldn't have entailed breaking into the home of the infamous Viscount Conrad. And she certainly wouldn't have been caught. In her defense, the vexing viscount was supposed to be away. It wasn't as though she'd intended to involve him in her escape. Viscount Conrad might be her brother's friend, but he's no knight in shining armor. More like a rogue in tarnished steel. But he's a wealthy rogue, with the means to help her find freedom abroad. And he would, she decided. Whether he liked it or not. But along her journey to freedom, she discovers he’s more than he lets on. He can be charming, for one. And surprisingly chivalrous. Though the viscount claims he’s no thief who absconds with runaway brides, she discovers he’s wrong. He is a thief, of sorts. And he might just steal her heart.
