In her remarkable debut novel, author Denice Kronau presents a love story for the ages. The World is Decorated with Stars tells two parallel stories of two couples, both named Abigail and Matthew, living in Massachusetts. This meticulously researched story deftly alternates between centuries and a backdrop rooted in historical events. Matthew and his wife Abigail live in Nantucket in the 1800s. As a sea captain during the height to the decline of the whaling era, Matthew leaves for years at a time, often conflicted between staying home with his family and his love of the sea. Meanwhile Abigail heads their household, raises their children, and runs her family's business. The Matt and Abby of 2008 are successful heads of their own businesses in Boston and Nantucket. Unaware that they were husband and wife in a previous life, they begin a relationship as business partners. Faced with modern-day business challenges and the financial crisis, their friendship blossoms into something more. The World Is Decorated with Stars is a stunning novel for readers who love historical fiction and the romance of finding a lost love again.

For millennia, people of all cultures have decorated the surfaces of their domestic, religious, and public buildings. Earthen architecture in particular has been, and continues to be, a common ground for surface decoration such as paintings, sculpted bas-relief, and ornamental plasterwork. This volume explores the complex issues associated with preserving these surfaces. Case studies from Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and the Americas are presented. The publication is the result of a colloquium held in 2004 at Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado, co-organized by the Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) and the National Park Service (NPS). The meeting brought together fifty-five conservators, cultural resource managers, materials scientists, engineers, architects, archaeologists, anthropologists, and artists from eleven countries. Divided into four themes--Archaeological Sites, Museum Practice, Historic Buildings, and Living Traditions--the papers examine the conservation of decorated surfaces on earthen architecture within these different contexts.
