Two strangers--generations and oceans apart--have a chance to save each other in this moving and suspenseful novel about family secrets and the ineffable connections that attach us. In a small Northern Italian village, nine-year-old Luca Taviano catches a stubborn cold and is subsequently diagnosed with leukemia. His only hope for survival is a bone marrow transplant. After an exhaustive search, a match turns up three thousand miles away in the form of a most unlikely donor: Joseph Neiman, a rabbi in Brooklyn, New York, who is suffering from a debilitating crisis of faith. As Luca's young nurse, Nina Vocelli, risks her career and races against time to help save the spirited redheaded boy, she uncovers terrible secrets from World War II--secrets that reveal how a Catholic child could have Jewish genes. Can inheritance be transcended by accidents of love? That is the question at the heart of This Magnificent Dappled Sea, a novel that challenges the idea of identity and celebrates the ties that bind us together.

Three old friends, two secrets, one love--and a whole new beginning. Every week for twenty years, three friends meet in a leafy enclosure under the Verrazzano Bridge: Gertie, a feisty Norwegian divorcée and former athlete; Maria, a family-obsessed Italian American widow; and Corinna, a book-loving, hash-smoking eccentric. Together they sit and watch the sea as the ships--and the last years of their lives--sail by. On the eve of Gertie's eightieth birthday, they realize that time is running out. Gertie decides she wants to travel the world. Maria secretly plots to reunite Gertie and Corinna with their estranged families. And Corinna falls in love. As the three women strike out in different directions, a series of events unfolds that threatens to destroy the most precious thing of all: their friendship. Heartfelt and humorous, And the Bridge Is Love invites readers to travel alongside these dynamic women on the journey of a lifetime in this inspiring novel about love, family, and forgiveness.

The pirate Bartholomew Roberts is an enigma. As a Calvinist Christian, he refuses his crew both strong drink and women on his ship. Despite his high moral standards, however, the lovely and seductive Lady Mary Jane Llewellyn, with whom he has a love-hate relationship, is aboard. Roberts wears the scarlet cape of a cardinal of the Catholic Church, with a large diamond cross blessed by the pope around his neck—and yet he conducts Protestant services every Sabbath. He confounds all expectations when, after attacking the ships of the Royal African Company, he routinely sets their “black gold” slaves free. Roberts flies not the black Jolly Roger flag with its skull and crossbones, but instead a red pennant upon which are stitched two forms: a skeleton and a rover, both reaching for a gold chalice. Some say it is life and death reaching for a tankard of ale, but they’re wrong. To Roberts, all of creation is a dance between life and death, and in the cup the answer awaits those brave enough to chase it. For his actions and attitudes, both the king and the pope want him dead—but Roberts discovered that in death, he found the key to life.

In the spring of 1867, the country is focused on rebuilding after the Civil War. As westward emigration begins once again, two thousand miles of desolation and dust, drenching rains and blazing sun, and life and death await those brave enough to tackle the Oregon Trail. Ian O'Fallon, a solitary scout with a mysterious past, arrives in St. Louis on the request of his boss, Captain Tom Williams, to investigate an Irish horse breeder who wants to join his wagon train to Oregon. But everything changes when he meets the breeder--the beautiful widow, Danny Seabhac, who has a dream of starting a horse farm in Oregon. As the two become acquainted, Ian begins to fall in love with her. But there is one problem: Danny has her own secret--a past that may have more to do with Ian than he realizes. Danny is a story of determination and perseverance, life and death, and beginnings and endings as a wagon train embarks on a dangerous journey on the Oregon Trail with two passengers about to realize their true destinies.

"Dancing at the Dead Sea is a powerful narrative on the critically important topic of the world's environmental hotspots. This is not a pessimistic tirade, but instead a factual commentary that will convince many, written by a gifted writer with an independent mind. I recommend this book without reservation." Richard Leakey Alanna Mitchell, winner of the Global Reuters IUCN media award for excellence in environmental reporting, embarks on an incredible worldwide cultural and environmental odyssey, zeroing in on environmental hotspots and examines how we can live, even flourish, without destroying the planet. One hundred and fifty years after the publication of The Origin of Species, Mitchell retraces the development of evolutionary theory, grappling with Richard Leakey's contention that the extinction of the human species is well under way. How and why are we human beings shortening our time on Earth? Travelling to the last living Eden, Madagascar, Mitchell is witness to the destruction of all but 10 percent of the original forest, not due to industrial activity but woodcutting by a primitive society still dependent on fire as its main energy resource. She then moves on to the badlands of Alberta, where she draws on the theory of world-famous paleontologist Philip Currie and the extinction of dinosaurs to gain insight on humanitys own impending suicide. Travel to the Azraq Oasis in Jordan, the meeting place of Africa, Asia and Europe, the mythical Galapagos Islands, seemingly unspoiled, but not immune to degradation, the far north and the Arctic desert of Banks Island, one of the first places on Earth where climate change with global impact is visible. Like the work of Wade Davis or books such as Krakatoa by Simon Winchester and Four Wings and a Prayer by Sue Halpern, Dancing at the Dead Sea intertwines scientific theory with travel adventure and history, creating a dramatic, fresh narrative voice examining not the origin, but the ultimate fate of the human species.
