SUNFLOWER OF THE THIRD REICH

A New Novel about WWII and Nazi Germany by Andrea Ritter

The riveting story of one German family's experiences from 1943 to the end of the war from the German perspective, to which American audiences have rarely been exposed.

SUNFLOWER OF THE THIRD REICH is an enthralling tale with fast-paced action that ventures from the German home front to the Russian front. The author, who grew up in Nazi Germany, describes the lives of ordinary German citizens during the war: the initial excitement and enthusiasm for Hitler's vision of the Third Reich, the nightly terrors of air raids and bombings, the famine, and the pressures of obtaining the barest necessities and protecting the family. With its fascinating details of German family life, action-filled battle scenes and poignant romances, readers will find it difficult to put down this absorbing saga before they have reached its dramatic conclusion.

Yearly history pages update the reader about the events of the war in Europe. This piece of well-researched historical fiction about WWII from the German perspective is of great interest to librarians, students and lovers of German history, -culture, and -language. Entertaining and informative, it is a must-have on any reading list! 423 pages/full size. Softcover ISBN 07388-3320-7, $24.99 - or hardback with dust jacket ISBN 0-7388-3319-3, $34.99.

EVEN IF WE BUY A CAR IN THE U.S. IT HAS TO BE DELIVERED BACK TO THE DEALER OR AN AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDER WHERE A DETERMINATION CAN BE MADE THAT A  PROBLEM IS DUE TO A DEFECT IN MATERIALS OR WORKMANSHIP AND IS NOT DUE TO LACK OF PROPER OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE.   ITEMS USED FOR COMMERCIAL BUSINESS ARE SELDOM WARRANTED TO THE SAME STANDARD AND ARE, IN FACT,  USUALLY EXCLUDED FROM WARRANTY.   VERY FEW ITEMS HAVE A NATIONAL AUTHORIZED SERVICE NETWORK THAT IS PRACTICAL WHEN WE CONSIDER OUR "DOWN TIME" AND EVEN FEWER HAVE INTERNATIONAL NETWORKS.   OUR BEST GUARANTEE IS TO PROPERLY OPERATE AND MAINTAIN WHAT WE BUY AND IT WILL BE CHEAPER OVER TIME AND IN MOST CASES MUCH OF OUR PROFIT MARGIN.  

MOTIVATED RESPONSIBLE PERSONS ARE REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN EVERYTHING EVEN PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS.  THIS IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES BECAUSE SPARE PARTS AND EXPERIENCED SERVICE ARE NOT AS AVAILABLE.  MOST AMERICAN BUSINESSES BUY USED EQUIPMENT WHENEVER THEY CAN AND MAINTAIN IT THEMSELVES ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE GROWING.  THE NEW EQUIPMENT IS OFTEN TOO EXPENSIVE AND STILL HAS TO BE OPERATED AND MAINTAINED PROPERLY FROM THE FIRST DAY OR THE DOWN TIME PUTS US OUT OF PROFITABLE BUSINESS.  IF WE DO NOT HAVE TIME TO "DO IT RIGHT" WHEN WILL WE FIND TIME "TO DO IT OVER".

ONE HUNDRED  YEARS AGO JAZZ WAS BORN ON THE BACK STREETS OF NEW ORLEANS, BRINGING A NEW MUSICAL CONSCIOUSNESS TO THE  WORLD.  BETTY SHIRLEY PAYS HOMAGE TO THE GREAT TRADITIONS AND SOUNDS OF JAZZ ON THIS HER MOST RECENT RECORDING, WITH HER RICH VOCALS AND WONDERFUL EXPRESSION ON A WIDE VARIETY OF STYLES AND MELODIES.  THE INTERPRETATION IS ALL BETTY, WHETHER IT'S THE SWING OF AN OLD STANDARD, OR A MOODY BLUES.  "UNVEILED" REVEALS A DIVERSITY OF SOUND AND TALENT FROM BETTY SHIRLEY THAT MIRRORS THE DIVERSITY OF HER LIFE.  SHE WAS BORN IN MISSISSIPPI, MOVED TO NEW YORK WHERE SHE WORKED WITH YOUNG CHILDREN IN THERAPY THROUGH ARTISTIC EXPRESSION, AND HAS LANDED IN NEW ORLEANS, WHERE SHE SUCCESSFULLY LAUNCHED HER SINGING CAREER.

CD'S AVAILABLE;  WILL SHIP WORLD WIDE; NEWEST CD TITLED "UNVEILED" ; PHOTO(32K) TRACKS INCLUDE (1) CHEEK TO CHEEK; (2) JAZZ WALTZ; (3) CRY ME A RIVER; (4) SWEET GEORGIA BROWN; (5) RAINY NIGHT IN GEORGIA; (6) HAVE YOU MET MISS JONES; (7) SISTER SADIE; (8) HERE'S TO LIFE; (9) THEM THERE EYES; (10) A GOOD MAN IS HARD TO FIND; (11) BYE, BYE BLACKBIRD; (12) HEAVEN'S SHORE.

ACCOMPANYING BETTY SHIRLEY  ON ALL TRACKS ARE THREE OUTSTANDING MUSICIANS.  PRODUCER, PIANIST AND ARRANGER LAWRENCE SIEBERTH IS A FLUENT JAZZ ARTIST AND A SYNTHESIZER MAGICIAN.  HIS ARRANGEMENTS ON THIS CD ARE MASTERFUL AND LEND A FLUID COHESIVENESS TO THE WHOLE.  BILL HUNTINGTON BRINGS HIS TALENTS TO THE BASS AND ALSO CONTRIBUTED TO THE ARRANGEMENT FOR "RAINY NIGHT IN GEORGIA". OF HUNTINGTON DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE SAID HE, "...HAS ALL THE MARKINGS OF A JAZZ LEGEND, FOR HIS DEVELOPMENT IS A RECAPITULATION OF THE HISTORY OF JAZZ ITSELF."  NEW ORLEANS BORN JOHN VIDACOVICH COMBINES HIS CREATIVE INSPIRATION WITH HIS OWN UNIQUE WIT AND RHYTHMIC LANGUAGE, MAKING THE PERCUSSION SPRING TO LIFE.

SEVERAL TALENTED GUEST ARTISTS WERE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN RECORDING PORTIONS OF "UNVEILED".  THESE INCLUDE ERIC TRAUB WHOSE TENOR SAX IS A COMBINATION OF FLAWLESS TECHNIQUE AND HARMONIC INVENTIVENESS.  ERIC'S COMMAND OF THE INSTRUMENT IS A WELCOME SOUND FOR ANY VOCALIST WHETHER THE MUSIC IS LOUD AND FUNKY, OR SPIRITUALLY SERENE.  JAMIL SHARIF ON TRUMPET IS CONSISTENT AND ELOQUENT, REFLECTING THE ARTISTRY OF HIS IMPROVISATIONAL SKILLS.  MAT PERRINE ON TUBA, AND MARK MULLINS ON TROMBONE COMBINE THEIR TALENTS IN THE UPBEAT RENDITION OF "SWEET GEORGIA BROWN".  STEVE MASAKOWSKI IS ONE OF THE MOST AWE-INSPIRING GUITARISTS AND COMPOSERS OF CONTEMPORARY MUSIC ON THE NEW ORLEANS SCENE.  HECTOR GALLARDO PROVIDES PERCUSSION ON THE MOVING MELODY, "HERE'S TO LIFE".  GALLARDO IS A VIRTUOSO ON THE TUMBADORES AND TIMBALES, AND AN ENTHUSIASTIC PROMOTER OF HIS CUBAN CULTURE.  WENDELL TILLY PRODUCES SOME OUTSTANDING SLIDE GUITAR WORK ON THE "RAINY NIGHT IN GEORGIA" TRACK.

"UNVEILED" BEGAN WITH JOY WILLIAMS, WHOSE LOVE OF BETTY SHIRLEY'S MUSIC WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR THIS DISC.  THE CONCEPT CAME FULL CIRCLE WITH KEMP WILLIAMS, WHO MADE THE CD POSSIBLE BY WRITING IT AND PULLING IT TOGETHER AS THE EXECUTIVE PRODUCER.

BETTY SHIRLEY HAS SPENT SEVERAL YEARS BUILDING ON HER BACKGROUND, PLAYING THE CLUBS AND RESTAURANTS  IN NEW ORLEANS.  SHE'S ALSO HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPAND HER HORIZONS WITH SUCCESSFUL TOURS THROUGH NORTH AND SOUTH AMERICA AND CONTINENTAL EUROPE.  A LADY OF MANY TALENTS, BETTY HAS WRITTEN THE MOVING LYRICS FOR JAZZ WALTZ, WHILE AT HOME SHE PAINTS, DRAWS AND CREATES STUNNING WORKS OF ART IN JEWELRY.  ON THIS CD HER VOICE IS HER INSTRUMENT.  WE NOW INVITE YOU TO RELAX AND ENJOY THE "UNVEIL-ING" OF BETTY SHIRLEY.  PHOTO(45K);  NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA; GH-VW MOVED TO 5.18.
