The secretary : a novel / by Knight, Renee,author.;
From her first day as Personal Assistant to the celebrated Mina Appleton, Christine Butcher understands what is expected of her. Absolute loyalty. Absolute discretion. For twenty years, Christine has been a most devoted servant, a silent witness to everything in Mina's life. So quiet, you would hardly know she is there. Day after day, year after year, Christine has been there, invisible--watching, listening, absorbing all the secrets floating around her. Keeping them safe. Christine is trusted. But those years of loyalty and discretion come with a high price. And eventually Christine will pay. But it would be a mistake to underestimate such a steadfast woman as Christine. Because as everyone is about to discover, there's a dangerous line between obedience and obsession.-- Amazon.

Behind her eyes / by Pinborough, Sarah,1972-;
Louise is a single mom, a secretary, stuck in a modern-day rut. On a rare night out, she meets a man in a bar and sparks fly. Though he leaves after they kiss, she's thrilled she finally connected with someone. When Louise arrives at work on Monday, she meets her new boss, David. The man from the bar. The very married man from the bar ... who says the kiss was a terrible mistake, but who still can't keep his eyes off Louise. And then Louise bumps into Adele, who's new to town and in need of a friend. But she also just happens to be married to David. David and Adele look like the picture-perfect husband and wife. But then why is David so controlling? And why is Adele so scared of him? As Louise is drawn into David and Adele's orbit, she uncovers more puzzling questions than answers. The only thing that is crystal clear is that something in this marriage is very, very wrong. But Louise can't guess how wrong-- and how far a person might go to protect their marriage's secrets.

Is college worth it? : a former United States Secretary of Education and a liberal arts graduate expose the broken promise of higher education / by Bennett, William J.(William John),1943-author.; Wilezol, David,author.;
Includes bibliographical references (pages 231-261) and index.The truth about college -- The borrowing binge -- Creating a financial monster -- So is it worth it? -- The lower side of higher ed -- With eyes wide-open -- Twelve hypothetical scenarios -- Schools worth attending.In this book the author, a former Secretary of Education explores the answer to a critical question: Should we keep sending our kids to college? The American system of higher education comprises some of the best universities, teachers, and students the world has ever seen. Millions of students around the globe want nothing more in their life than to attend an American university. However, many of America's colleges and universities today have serious academic, institutional, and other performance problems, and it is quickly approaching a crisis point, if it is not there already. Despite some excellent colleges and quality programs at many colleges, too much of higher education is wildly expensive. Students often graduate having learned little, or do not graduate at all. They are subjected to all types of non-academic distractions. For these reasons, many students would be better served exploring other educational alternatives. Here the authors assess the problems of American higher education at various levels, from runaway costs to inferior academics to poor graduation rates to political indoctrination, and propose serious reforms and alternative methods for improving higher education so that it better serves students.
