How can you stand up to tyranny when your own identity is in turmoil? Vietnam is a haunted country, and Dr. Nguyen Georges-Minh is a haunted man. In 1908, the French rule Saigon, but uneasily- dissent whispers through the corridors of the city. Each day, more Vietnamese rebels are paraded through the streets towards the gleaming blade of the guillotine, now a permanent fixture in the main square and a gruesome warning to those who would attempt to challenge colonial rule. It is a warning that Georges-Minh will not heed. A Vietnamese national and Paris-educated physician, he is obsessed by guilt over his material wealth and nurses a secret loathing for the French connections that have made him rich, even as they have torn his beloved country apart. With a close-knit group of his friends calling themselves the Mysterious Fragrance of the Yellow Mountains, Georges-Minh plots revenge on the French for the savagery they have shown to the Vietnamese. And it falls to Georges-Minh to create a poison to mix into the Christmas dinner of a garrison of French soldiers. It is an act that will send an unmistakable message to the French: Get out of Vietnam. But the assassination attempt goes horribly wrong. Forced to flee into the deep jungles of the outer provinces, Georges-Minh must care for his infant son, manage the growing madness of his wife, and elude capture by the hill tribes and the small--but lethal--pockets of French sympathizers. Journey Prize winner Yasuko Thanh transports us into a vivid, historical Vietnam, one that is filled with chaotic streets, teeming marketplaces, squalid opium dens, and angry ghosts that exist side by side with the living."

      so the pricing factors in all those considerations, including getting support from Squarespace (it's very hard to find any free, and more importantly Р reliable, support with WordPress, if any).

      What web builder would you recommend for a music website that would have a lot of photos, have news articles and links to articles, a link to be able to buy the CD from CDBaby, allow people to send an email or to sign up for a newsletter and allow us to email either everyone who has signed up or to a select group by address or other indicator to send notices of upcoming shows?

    Lastly, I think if you want to create a job board, your best bet is to hire a capable developer to help you create it. I don't think any website builders will be able to do that out of the box.
