DESCRIPTION:

A debut novel brimming with Southern heart about a small town where, regardless of what happens behind closed doors, the neighbors awake each morning and meet at the Quaker Café.

***

When Liz Hoole, a free-spirited liberal from the Midwest, marries into a conservative Quaker family in a small rural town in North Carolina, she knew it would be a delicate task to negotiate the raising of her four boys in compliance with Quaker values…but as much as she tries, she always seems to fall short of expectations.

After Judge Corbett Kendall, the politically powerful father of her best friend, dies, Liz stumbles upon secrets from the past that threaten to unravel the delicate fabric of racial harmony in an easily-divided town. Whether examining the history of Cottonwoods Plantation or eavesdropping on the latest gossip at the local Quaker Café, she finds herself burdened with the truth of an injustice that she cannot reveal, even to her own husband.

The Quaker Café dances with rich Southern characters: Miss Ellie, the elderly owner and gracious hostess of the café knows more than she admits; Debbie Bradshaw, Liz’s dynamic and colorful secretary, knows more than she should; and Frogbelly thinks he knows it all. As Liz…

What happens when the world you love doesn’t press pause when you do? Singer-songwriter Christine Daley hit the streets of Boston and became a minor celebrity–with a local radio hit–in the 90s, but a “short” career break to marry and have kids changed everything. Now, sixteen years later, she’s a frustrated suburban housewife, struggling to find her place in life.

After filing for divorce, she learns that her attempts to reestablish her own rhythms–both in music and in love–are more complicated than she’d anticipated. Her two teenagers are desperate for their mom, and her soon-to-be-ex-husband is throwing every obstacle he can in her way. Adding to the stress is the progress in technology, which has not only changed the music industry, but also the dating world. Is there room in the mix for Chris?

DESCRIPTION:

For many people, George Washington is the most legendary figure in American history. His contribution to his country’s struggle through years of revolution has given him a place of honor on everything from Mount Rushmore to the dollar bill. But who was George Washington? What was the man behind the legend really like?

New York Times bestselling author Thomas Fleming discovered that finding the truth was no simple matter. Opinions of the man varied sharply. Some historians made him seem more like a god than a man. And there were writers who made up moralistic fables about him, such as the cannot-tell-a-lie tale of chopping down the cherry tree.

Fleming decided that the best way to discover the real George Washington was to read what the men and women who knew him said in their letters and journals. Fleming also read all he could find that Washington wrote to his friends and relatives. Slowly, the remarkable person behind the legend emerged.

In this book, anecdotes from friends and enemies alike give a firsthand vision of Washington’s character. Little-known and colorful incidents – from Washington as an untutored boy…

“This is a love letter, a memoir, a beautiful book about what it means to go on the journey of a lifetime.”
Seth GodinAuthor

“Trouble with a capital T”–that’s what they called Trent Price, and that’s all they saw in him.

Jule Kucera had no reason to expect more than the construction work she hired him for. She was older, college educated, professional, affluent, a lifelong achiever . . . and lonely. Trent was a divorced father, a freelance construction worker with a high school diploma, and, due to a learning disability, a slow reader. He was more comfortable in a swamp than in a city. He was scarred, in more ways than one.

But she saw that his eyes were kind and deep, and he saw that she was wounded but wanting. Could they learn to see past the scars and beyond the labels? Could they open themselves to love? And if they did, would that be enough?

This unflinching memoir explores love between two people who have failed at love at least once. It measures the…

“A gifted writer, Anderson is…delightful in his irreverence, and astutely aware of himself and his particular perspective. His observations are often laugh-out-loud funny and will leave readers with the desire to…keep turning the pages…” –Publishers Weekly review for Anderson, author of Tune in Tokyo and Sweet Tooth

What’s a sweets-loving young boy growing up gay in North Carolina in the eighties supposed to think when he’s diagnosed with type 1 diabetes? That God is punishing him, naturally.

This was, after all, when Jesse Helms was his senator, AIDS was still the boogeyman, and no one was saying, “It gets better.” And if stealing a copy of an x-rated magazine from the newsagent was a sin, then surely what the guys inside were doing to one another was much worse.

Sweet Tooth is Tim Anderson’s uproarious memoir of life after his hormones and blood sugar both went berserk at the age of fifteen. With Morrissey and The Smiths as the soundtrack, Anderson self-deprecatingly recalls love affairs with vests and donuts, first crushes, coming out, and inaugural trips to gay bars. What emerges is the story of a young man trying to build a future that won’t involve crippling loneliness or losing a foot…

When an old friend invites her to help renovate a bar in a posh resort town, single gal Christine immediately agrees, anticipating two blissful weeks of sun, cocktails, and gorgeous men. Her excitement is short-lived, however, thanks in no small part to her overbearing mother and one heavy-handed guilt trip. Now, for the first time in nearly thirty years, Christine and her best friend Dorothea find themselves saddled with an unexpected chaperone: Christine’s father, Heinz.

The trip is a catastrophe from the get-go. For starters, Heinz insists on taking charge of the bar’s overhaul. And when he learns that the locals are hunting for an escaped con artist, he promptly joins the investigation. At the top of his suspect list? Johann, the handsome, mysterious traveler who makes Christine go weak at the knees. But just when she thinks she can’t take one more day of his “father knows best” routine, Christine makes a poignant realization that will forever change the way she looks at Heinz.

Sparkling with humor, this delightful novel, which spent over one hundred weeks on Germany’s bestseller list, captures the unique–and occasionally exasperating–bond between fathers and daughters.

DESCRIPTION:

In Ancient Greece, extreme male supremacy kept women subjugated as housebound servants lacking education or rights. Many were slaves or concubines. Yet, in a strange contrast, Greek male artisans portrayed bold, free, fighting females – the Amazons – in hundreds of paintings, writings and sculptures.

In this novel, Amazons were spirited women who fled from servitude. To reach the hidden band of female warriors, they followed a network of secret safe houses similar to the Underground Railroad of America’s slavery days.

Only the strongest runaways became Amazon fighters under the War Queen. Smaller, gentler fugitives performed village domestic work under the Home Queen. Yet all shared freedom unknown to other Greek women of their day.

The Amazons lived as rebels, and kept some wounded male captives as slave-concubines of their own. Their story is told by a captured scribe who recorded their stormy lives of danger and passion, before Greek legions brought doom. The Amazons existed only briefly, but they blazed with wild spirit.

“Will I ever have sex again?”

“I thought I was religious, but is there really a God?”

“When should I tell my children that I’m dating?”

And finally,

“Wow…I’m happy…is that allowed?”

Channeling the candid and heartfelt qualities of Becky Aikman’s Saturday Night Widows, this work of narrative non-fiction is also based on the true stories of six suddenly single women. This story of actual emails unfolds in real time, as each woman faces her most intimate fears and enters the exhilarating, nerve-wracking, and sometimes hilarious world of dating as a single parent. The book also shows the surprising similarities between death…

DESCRIPTION:

Grant and Ronan are only 14 and 12 when they witness the murder of everyone in their village. They flee, only to be abducted and thrown into a mining prison run by the ambitious military organization that calls itself the Order of Harmony.

Meanwhile, the leader of the Order of Harmony has discovered the purpose of Dragonyria — an ancient artifact that, if activated, would alter countless lives around the world in a way that would align perfectly with the ideals of the Order. However, the means to trigger it remain a mystery.

Years later, Grant and Ronan are chosen to be among a group of Order soldiers who will attack a village that they are told is a base of rebellion against the Order.

The Pacific Heights Moms & Tots Club is the most exclusive children’s playgroup in all of San Francisco. For the city’s ultra-competitive elite, the club’s ten annual spots are the ultimate parenting prize.

In a world of power and prestige, no one has more than Bettina. And as every mom in Pacific Heights knows, you simply cannot cross her. But this year’s admissions process is more rigorous than ever, pitting prospective members against each other to prove their mettle.

But four of the six candidates vying for the remaining four slots have a secret that would knock them out of the running.

Frustrated with the law of attraction?

Many people follow the law of attraction practices they learned from Rhonda Byrne’s movie, The Secret, and Abraham-Hicks only to be disappointed when the techniques don’t work for them. How do people get the law of attraction to work for them?

Why does one person say a few affirmations and meet the love of their life, get a raise, and take a trip to the Bahama’s, while some people just keep saying them and nothing seems to happen?
