But if she's going to catch a prince, she first must pull off the transformation from all-American gal to hip, fashionable heiress. At a society wedding, it seems like a dream come true when a handsome, kilt-clad man begins a hot pursuit - unfortunately, he turns out to be more handyman than nobleman. However, as Katy herself knows, appearances can be deceiving: sometimes a prince is disguised as a pauper and sometimes an ordinary bloke is really a duke. Katy just hopes that playing make-believe hasn't ruined her chance at a fairy-tale ending.

Graceful Exits: Catholic Women and the Art of Departure
By Debra Campbell '75
Indiana University Press. 2004.
In Graceful Exits, Debra Campbell examines nine narratives from twentieth-century Catholic female authors about the process of departure from the church and its institutions. This study explores the breaking of the taboo associated with women leaving their "proper place," and focuses on five themes: reversal, boundary crossing, diaspora, renaming, and recycling. Campbell examines how each woman grapples with the spirituality of departure and shows that the very process of leaving Catholic institutions is a Catholic enterprise. These narratives support the popular maxim that no one ever really leaves the church, and the final chapter, centered on narratives of return, confirms the book's overarching theme that neither departure nor return is ever finished.
Debra Campbell is a professor of religious studies at Colby College in Waterville, Maine. She is the coauthor of Transforming Parish Ministry (1989).

Lives of Mapmakers
By Alicia L. Conroy '85
Carnegie Mellon University Press. 2006.
A motif of exploration and discovery links these stories set in a newly envisioned Midwest and across the globe. Conroy stretches the boundaries of form and language to find mythic power in everyday lives. With an unflinching eye, she examines the power and frailty of the body, the shifting ground between women and men, and the elemental connection with the land. Her characters' journeys are sometimes ethereal and magical: the discovery of a mythical creature on the prairie exposes the best and worst of people; a Renaissance cartographer's quest to perfect his map is woven into a fabric of power and intrigue that spans centuries.
Conroy has lived in Denmark and Wales, and worked in the Boston area for 14 years before returning to her hometown of Minneapolis. Her stories have appeared in Ploughshares, Ontario Review, Chattahoochee Review, Puerto del Sol, Connecticut Review, Rosebud and others. Stories in the collection have earned an honorable mention for the 2005 Pushcart Prizes and the Denny Prize for distinction in writing from the College of St. Catherine.

History on the Road: The Painted Carts of Sicily
By Marcella Croce '72 and Moira F. Harris
Pogo Press. 2006.
The painted carts of Sicily have been around for less than two centuries. Once there were many thousands of them, carrying the products of the island and participating in celebrations. The carts were fashioned from beautifully carved wood and intricately wrought metal. All visible parts were colorfully painted with religious, chivalric, historical, or other culturally symbolic designs and figures. They carried passengers, food, wine barrels, minerals, and other cargo from place to place. Described as ungainly and awkward, they were pulled over less-than-satisfactory roads by horses, mules, and donkeys decorated in colorful harnesses and feathers. These carts are part of Sicily's art, culture, and history on the road.
Marcella Croce was born in Palermo, Sicily. She earned her PhD in Italian literature from the University of Wisconsin. She is a lecturer, Italian language teacher, and Elderhostel coordinator. She has written books and articles concerning Italian folklore, including puppets and decorated carts.
