Summary

Ali Bobrow is an otherworldly single parent with an overwrought nine-year-old daughter, a malevolent ex and his grabby new wife, and an underused artistic talent. A pushover when it comes to needy neighbors and uninvited children, she allows her house to be the local drop-in center, until she collides with Noah Glazer, who falls for her pale red hair. A solid man of science, Noah walks into her over-populated life bringing good sense, order, and security. But ten years later, Ali is drawn back into the complexities of her past; an old lover, two ex-spouses, a colleague from clown school, and a small smuggled cat all help to rock the boat. 
 
"Why did it take me so long to discover the singular joys of Barbara Trapido's novels? Why, for so many years, had I missed these witty, soulful, heartbreaking, expansive, brilliant tales? I have become a literary evangelist on her behalf." --Elizabeth Gilbert

    "There is a dungeon hidden
    beneath the castle where women are treated as playthings…humiliated in ways an innocent little thing like you
    cannot possibly begin to imagine…
    Hmm? What do we use? Ropes, whips, handcuffs, blindfolds, clamps, anything that

    ~~~~~ Excerpt
    ~~~~~
    
     
    "There is a dungeon hidden
    beneath the castle where women are treated as playthings…humiliated in ways an innocent little thing like you
    cannot possibly begin to imagine," he said with a wicked grin that did not
    reach his eyes.
    
     
    "I am not a child, Victor,"
    I said through clenched teeth, more than a little annoyed that this stranger
    was judging me without knowing anything about me.
    
     
    "Of course not, but there are
    things that happen in the dungeon that will make you question a lot of
    things," he said.
    
     
    "What kind of things?" I
    asked, curious despite my apprehension to show him that he was right in
    guessing my lack of experience regarding sex. I wasn't completely innocent but
    every time a topic that had to do with sex came up, I would blush and turn away.
    
     
    "What do you mean what kind of
    things?" he asked.
    
     
    "What do you use?" I
    asked.
    
     
    "Hmm? What do we use? Ropes,
    whips, handcuffs, blindfolds, clamps," he shrugged. "Anything that
    can be fitted inside a woman's-" he stopped and turned to me. "Oh,
    are you blushing already? Come now, wouldn't you like to have a look?"
    
     
    My cheeks flamed red and I turned to
    stare at him incredulously. "I'm here to work, Victor, not to check out
    some kinky dungeon," I said.
    
     
    "Yes, but you do have to check
    everything, don't you?"
    
     
    I continued gaping at him, a burning
    sensation tumbling in my belly. "Yes, but-"
    
     
    "There is an event
    tonight," he said. "You should have a look," he suggested.
    
     
    I looked at him blankly.
    
     
    Was he asking me to go to the
    dungeon with him? Was it some sort of innuendo?
    
     
    "What… What do I need to do?" I swallowed, suddenly
    nervous.
    
     
    I sounded feeble and weak.
    
     
    "Submit," he said with a
    grin that scared me.

    What he doesn’t expect is an offer to go on a quest to a place where magic is all too real. 
    That's how he finds himself in Alissia, a world connected to ours by a secret portal owned by a powerful corporation. He’s after an employee who has gone rogue, and that’s the least of his problems. Alissia has true magicians…and the penalty for impersonating one is death. In a world where even a twelve-year-old could beat Quinn in a swordfight, it's only a matter of time until the tricks up his sleeves run out.

    From USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Robson—author of Moonlight Over Paris and Somewhere in France—comes a lush historical novel that tells the fascinating story of Ruby Sutton, an ambitious American journalist who moves to London in 1940 to report on the Second World War, and to start a new life an ocean away from her past. 
    In the summer of 1940, ambitious young American journalist Ruby Sutton gets her big break: the chance to report on the European war as a staff writer for Picture Weekly newsmagazine in London. She jumps at the chance, for it's an opportunity not only to prove herself, but also to start fresh in a city and country that know nothing of her humble origins. But life in besieged Britain tests Ruby in ways she never imagined. 
     
    Although most of Ruby's new colleagues welcome her, a few resent her presence, not only as an American but also as a woman. She is just beginning to find her feet, to feel at home in a country that is so familiar yet so foreign, when the bombs begin to fall.  
     
    As the nightly horror of the Blitz stretches unbroken into weeks and months, Ruby must set aside her determination to remain an objective observer. When she loses everything but her life, and must depend upon the kindness of strangers, she learns for the first time the depth and measure of true friendship—and what it is to love a man who is burdened by secrets that aren’t his to share. 
    Goodnight from London, inspired in part by the wartime experiences of the author’s own grandmother, is a captivating, heartfelt, and historically immersive story that readers are sure to embrace.
