Summary

A lonely woman is torn between the bonds of family and the potential of new love in this moving novel from the author of A Wrinkle in Time. Caught somewhere between love, hate, and indifference, Emily Bowen’s marriage is hanging on by a thread. After being let go from his job, her husband pulled away from her, and the distance continues to grow during their family’s sabbatical in Switzerland.   With their relationship as cold as the wind baying outside, Emily finds unexpected warmth in a man from her past. As she contemplates seizing the connection she’s been craving, Emily must decide if she’s willing to sacrifice the life she’s built for an unseen future.   Poignant and powerful, this is a timeless tale of the turmoil that comes with falling in—and out—of love, and “a convincing story of mixed loyalties and divided affections” (Kirkus Reviews).  This ebook features an illustrated biography of Madeleine L’Engle including rare images from the author’s estate.

    Nature had infused the woods this day, with a mind boggling display of plumage.  The forest was clamoring with the screech of blue jays, chattering sparrows, and trilling robins.  Catbirds meowed along the creek and orioles sat in rows along split rail fences.   Huge obsidian crows caw cawing to, or at each other.  Cowbirds hopped along in front of and behind the riders, flashing their iridescent blue-black wings in sporadic pseudo-flights every few feet along the road.  Wild canaries in flashing flocks of brilliant lemon yellow dipped and flowed into sight across the meadows under a lovely pale blue sky. The beautiful, soft, haunting coo coo coos of the doves, or rain crows, as the people here called them, came from deep within the trees.
    They came from under the trees, out of the brush and weeds, by the side of the road, in the late evening twilight, as quickly and unexpectedly as copperheads, their movements masked by the increased darkness of the overhanging trees and the sound of the rushing water in the creek.  Armed with pistols and knives, one grabbed the reins of the frightened saddle-horse as the two other men fastened hold of the rider.
    Like famed author Louis LAmour, Lucas presents rough and tumble protagonists, often in a historical context, who overcome mounting odds.  Lucas characters also present an alternative to modern day role models.

    A half-human half-dragon liege struggles to control his inner beast and preserve a kingdom in this masterful tale from a two-time World Fantasy Award winner. The new lord of Dragon’s Keep, Karadur Atani assumed ultimate power by destroying his malevolent twin brother and usurping his throne. Determined to rule wisely and benevolently in the world of Ippa, the changeling fears he will fall victim to the madness that plagued his father. And he knows he must keep his violent and unpredictable dragon nature in check.   Sometimes, however, the dragon’s vengeance must be unleashed. When foul murder in the countryside demands justice, Karadur assumes his most fearsome form to destroy the outlaw Unamira clan with fire—and without mercy.   But two members of the family survive his wrath. Karadur will take one, the beautiful herbalist Maia, as a lover in order to soothe his troubled heart and volatile spirit, and to produce the dragon-changeling heir he so fervently desires. The other, Maia’s half-brother, Taran, will pursue the criminal life he was born into, becoming a dangerous scourge, a pitiless avenger, and a threat to the fragile peace of the dragon lord’s realm.   The winner of two World Fantasy Awards—one of the genre’s most prestigious honors—author Elizabeth A. Lynn adds new depth to the medieval fantasy world she first conceived in Dragon’s Winter. Rich in color, character, and imagination, Dragon’s Treasure is further proof of Lynn’s exceptional world-building skills as she presents a fantastic adventure as enthralling as the best dragon tales of Anne McCaffrey, Robin Hobb, or George R. R. Martin.

With the love of readers and the praise of critics, Norton’s books have sold millions of copies worldwide.V-E Day and V-J Day are in the past, but the war is not over. Not for Lorens van Norreys, the new master of the House of Norreys, not as long as Nazi criminals are still at large. And not for Lawrence Kane and Sam Marusaki, two former OSS men, not as long as there are Americans still missing in action. The three of them quickly become entangled in a mystery—Norreys as he searches for a lost treasure, and Lawrence and Marusaki as they search for a lost American flyer. Together they face cutthroat pirates in the thousand islands of Indonesia, then they battle an unknown foe on an island known as the Forbidden Place, an uncharted landfill mentioned only in legends and from which, it’s said, not one has ever returned alive.
