A poignant and tender story of love, loss, passion, and the fragile threads that bind families together from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale “A beautifully simple, deeply compassionate story.”—Diana Gabaldon Annie Colwater's only child has just left home for school abroad. On that same day, her husband of twenty years confesses that he's in love with a younger woman. Alone in the house that is no longer a home, Annie comes to the painful realization that for years she has been slowly disappearing. Lonely and afraid, she retreats to Mystic, the small Washington town where she grew up, hoping that there she can reclaim the woman she once was—the woman she is now desperate to become again. In Mystic, she is reunited with her first love, Nick Delacroix, a recent widower unable to cope with his grieving, too-silent six-year-old daughter, Izzie. Together, the three of them begin to heal, and, at last, Annie learns that she can love without losing herself. But just when she has found a second chance at happiness, her life is turned upside down again, and Annie must make a choice no woman should have to make. . . .

But just when Annie believes she’s been given a second chance at happiness, she is forced to make a choice that no woman in love should ever have to make. SUMMER ISLAND “Many a daughter will see something of herself in Ruby.”—People Years ago, Nora Bridge walked out on her marriage and her family. Now she is a celebrity talk-show host. Her daughter Ruby is a struggling comedienne. The two haven’t spoken in more than a decade. Then a scandal from Nora’s past is exposed, and Ruby is offered a fortune to write a tell-all. Reluctantly she returns to the family house on Summer Island, with its frayed memories of joy and heartache.

Complicating matters are the vastly different DeMarco brothers: While priest Francis is always ready to lend a helping hand, Angel long ago took on the role of bad boy. Years earlier Angel abandoned Madelaine—and fatherhood—to seek fame and fortune, leaving her devastated. Now he needs help from the very people he betrayed—as a patient in dire need.

Mystic Angel - the first book in the Mystic Series begins when Jackson Allen threw his family into sudden turmoil when he announced he was moving his family from their life on the beaches of Southern California to a small town in Tennessee. Shrouded in mystery and secrets Jackson put unfamiliar distance between himself, his wife Suzann and their two teen age children. Jackson gave no explanation other than his responsibility to sell the family home. Jackson had put Sommerville, Tennessee behind him over twenty years earlier, but now the Allen's arrival would stir the dust of family secrets that had lay dormant for over fifty years. Old myths and legends surrounding the wealthy mysterious Allen's had been told and retold in the small community for nearly four generations. The Allen children, Aspen and Noah, would soon be pulled into a world of the paranormal, extrasensory phenomena and murder. With the comradeship of new friends, buried secrets are uncovered only complicating Jackson's ultimate goal, to sell the house and return his family to their comfortable life in San Clemente, California. Now in book two, Mystic Lake, the little town of Sommerville has been shaken to its core and the determined team of teenagers, Aspen Allen, her brother Noah, and friends Gavin and Kiryn, are unwilling to let it rest. The deeper they dig into the town's mysteries, the more the town is turned upside down revealing a dark and shocking history that no one wants to admit ever existed. Jackson Humphrey Allen kept his secrets buried not only in his own mind, but literally within the walls of the Allen Mansion. His silence maliciously creeps into the lives of his posterity, seeping quietly through unsuspecting generations - patiently waiting for the right person to answer the plea. The elder Jackson's grandson, Jackson David Allen, fights bitterly against the warnings in a desperate attempt to protect his family from his own tortured past. Will the reality that his daughter may be dead, be enough to push Jackson to succumb to the forces that have tried to invade his life since he was a young boy? Will he relent; allowing those, who for years, have tried unsuccessfully to reach him, finally make contact? The supernatural world that pulled Aspen Allen into its' clutches now has her compelled to find more answers; not only to the secrets in the house itself, but the seemingly tragic past of the exclusive community that once was Mystic Lake.

It?s 1699, and the salons of Paris are bursting with the creative energy of fierce, independent-minded women. But outside those doors, the patriarchal forces of Louis XIV and the Catholic Church are moving to curb their freedoms. In this battle for equality, Baroness Marie Catherine D?Aulnoy invents a powerful weapon: `fairy tales?. When Marie Catherine?s daughter, Angelina, arrives in Paris for the first time, she is swept up in the glamour and sensuality of the city, where a woman may live outside the confines of the church or marriage. But this is a fragile freedom, as she discovers when Marie Catherine?s close friend Nicola Tiquet is arrested, accused of conspiring to murder her abusive husband. In the race to rescue Nicola, illusions will be shattered and dark secrets revealed as all three women learn how far they will go to preserve their liberty in a society determined to control them. This keenly-awaited second book from Melissa Ashley, author of The Birdman?s Wife, restores another remarkable, little-known woman to her rightful place in history, revealing the dissent hidden beneath the whimsical surfaces of Marie Catherine?s fairy tales. The Bee and the Orange Tree is a beautifully lyrical and deeply absorbing portrait of a time, a place, and the subversive power of the imagination.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER No one knows you like your sister. She can make you laugh or break your heart with a single word. And no one writes novels like Kristin Hannah, an author who vividly explores the intricate bonds of family and, as Tami Hoag said “touches the deepest, most tender corners of our heart.” Now, in her rich, captivating new book, she creates an indelible portrait of two women, once lost to each other, about to come together in a time of exquisite joy and almost unbearable sadness. Sisters by blood, strangers by choice, each stands at a crossroads, ready to confront the betrayals of the past. . . . BETWEEN SISTERS Meghann Dontess is a woman haunted by heartbreak. Twenty-five years ago she was forced to make a terrible choice, one that cost her everything, including the love of her sister, Claire. Now, Meghann is a hotshot divorce attorney who doesn’t believe in intimacy–until she meets the one man who can change her mind. Claire Cavenaugh has fallen in love for the first time in her life. As her wedding day approaches, she prepares to face her harsh, judgmental older sister and their self-absorbed mother. It is the first time they have been together in more than two decades. Over the course of a hot Pacific Northwest summer, these three women who believe they have nothing in common will try to become what they never were: a family. Tender, funny, bittersweet, and wonderfully moving, Between Sisters celebrates the joys and heartaches that can only be shared by sisters, the mistakes made in the name of love and the healing power of new beginnings–all beautifully told by acclaimed author Kristin Hannah.

Now a major motion picture directed by Clint Eastwood, and starring an A-list cast including Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Kevin Bacon, Laura Linney, and Marcia gay Harden—this New York Times bestselling novel from Dennis Lehane is a gripping, unnerving psychological thriller about the effects of a savage killing on three former friends in a tightly knit, blue-collar Boston neighborhood. When they were children, Sean Devine, Jimmy Marcus, and Dave Boyle were friends. But then a strange car pulled up to their street. One boy got into the car, two did not, and something terrible happened -- something that ended their friendship and changed all three boys forever. Twenty-five years later, Sean is a homicide detective. Jimmy is an ex-con who owns a corner store. And Dave is trying to hold his marriage together and keep his demons at bay -- demons that urge him to do terrible things. When Jimmy's daughter is found murdered, Sean is assigned to the case. His investigation brings him into conflict with Jimmy, who finds his old criminal impulses tempt him to solve the crime with brutal justice. And then there is Dave, who came home the night Jimmy's daughter died covered in someone else's blood. A tense and unnerving psychological thriller, Mystic River is also an epic novel of love and loyalty, faith and family, in which people irrevocably marked by the past find themselves on a collision course with the darkest truths of their own hidden selves.
