Can a feral cat help a formerly wild woman find herself?
Candice hopes that her childhood home will offer her a safe place to weather the storm of life. A place to hide from her demons and her memories. A place that's safe when everywhere else is fraught with emotional pitfalls and dangers.
Except, it isn't.
Home has its own complications. Its own drama. Drama in the form of an old friend/old flame. Drama in the form of her family. Drama in the form of a feral cat who's just as wild and untamed as Candice.
Will Candice be able to find her equilibrium and her place in this rustic and rural town? Or will her feral heart lead her into disaster?
This is a novelette about coming home again written in lyrical and evocative language. It's a story for former wildchilds and cat lovers and anyone looking for an avenue of hope after an acre of despair.

A classic collection of American short stories about the lives of the late-nineteenth-century citizens of Maine. Sarah Orne Jewett’s masterpiece, The Country of Pointed Firs is a short story sequence that celebrates what the author believed were the rapidly disappearing traditions, manners, and dialect of the natives of coastal Maine at the turn of the twentieth century. In revealing snapshots—a family reunion, the ghostly vision of a seaman, and more—Jewett presents honest portraits of individual New Englanders and a warm, humorous, and compassionate vision of the Northeast. Filled with an eclectic cast of characters, the collection humanizes northeasterners from all walks of life. Like Mark Twain’s TheAdventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Country of Pointed Firs masterfully illustrates the American character and experience. Although widely overlooked during her lifetime, Jewett’s tales—and the values they relate—are just as relevant today as when they were written. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
Fourteen stories that follow a young boy coming of age in a dysfunctional family in the rural South Meet William Stroop, a young son of the South whose charming voice and mordant observations of family and culture make him one of American literature’s most memorable narrators. In these fourteen interwoven stories, William details the high (and low) points of his family history, focusing particularly on his lazy, scheming father, Morris, his put-upon mother, Martha, and his confidante, Handsome Brown, a young black farmhand. As Morris matches wits with strangers and neighbors alike in constant pursuit of get-rich-quick plans, Martha tries to hold the family together without the aid of any discernable income. Told with the polish and moral resonance of fables, Georgia Boy captures the beauty and tragedy of life in the rural South during the twentieth century. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erskine Caldwell including rare photos and never-before-seen documents courtesy of the Dartmouth College Library.

This is the worst vacation ever.Anne manages to pull things together bit by bit, but just as they begin feeling like a family again, something catastrophic happens.
