1. "Bridge to the Morrow": This work by Aida Rivera Ford is a philosophical and socio-political commentary which reflects on the contingent nature of the world, as seen through the lives of Filipinos. It explores themes of tradition, progress, culture, and change, standing as a metaphorical bridge to the tomorrow - the future of the nation. 2. "Love in the Cornhusks": This is a short story that follows the character Tinang, a former housemaid, who returns to her province in order to be a mother and a wife again. The story brilliantly illustrates rural life and the traditions, sensibilities, and dilemmas that arise therein. It also depicts the theme of love and the degrees to which one could experience happiness, loss, and redemption. 3. "Heroes in Love: Four Plays": This collection of plays by Ford displays her artistry in drama. The plays revolve around historic Filipino figures and heroes, examining their intimate relationships and unknown or unusual aspects of their lives. These uncharted narratives offer deeper insights into the personal lives of these towering figures, hence the title "Heroes in Love." 4. "Oyanguren: The forgotten founder of Davao": This piece is a historical narrative that examines the life and significant role of Oyanguren, who was a key figure in the founding of Davao. Ford sheds light on his contributions and why he enjoys fewer acknowledgments in the history of Davao. Through this work, Ford opens a discussion around history writing and national memory.
