The prodigal son of Ladd Springs, a mecca of natural springs, streams and trails in the eastern Tennessee mountains, he’s determined to reclaim the property as his rightful inheritance. Lacy cares little about Jeremiah’s plan. She simply yearns for the comfort of family. Sister Annie Owens wants nothing to do with Lacy, but sees opportunity in Jeremiah’s return.

In a landscape torn between tradition and vision, can two souls find the strength to overcome their preconceptions?

Book Summary: Rich with family secrets, lingering danger, and the captivating allure of new love, this Regency romance introduces us to the Twethewey family and their search for peace, justice, and love on the Cornish coast. Cornwall, England, 1811—Blamed for her husband’s death, Cordelia Greythorne fled Cornwall and accepted a governess position to begin a new life. Years later her employer’s unexpected death and his last request for her to watch over his five children force her to reevaluate. She can’t abandon the children now that they’ve lost both parents, but their new guardian lives at the timeworn Penwythe Hall . . . back on the Cornish coast she’s tried desperately to forget. Jac Twethewey is determined to revive Penwythe Hall’s once-flourishing apple orchards, and he’ll stop at nothing to see his struggling estate profitable again. He hasn’t heard from his brother in years, so when his nieces, nephews, and their governess arrive unannounced, he battles both grief at his brother’s death and bewilderment over this sudden responsibility. Jac’s priorities shift as the children take up residence in the ancient halls, but their secretive governess—and the mystery shrouding her past—proves to be a disruption to his carefully laid plans.

Book Summary: The first book in the beloved Regency romance series, The Treasures of Surrey. “Regency romantic suspense at its page-turning best.” —RT Book Reviews, 4½ stars, TOP PICK! “It is not just a ruby, as you say. It is large as a quail’s egg, still untouched and unpolished. And it is rumored to either bless or curse whoever possesses it.” Camille Iverness can take care of herself. She’s done so since the day her mother abandoned the family and left Camille to run their shabby curiosity shop. But when a violent betrayal leaves her injured with no place to hide, Camille must allow a mysterious stranger to come to her aid. Jonathan Gilchrist never wanted to inherit Kettering Hall. As a second son, he was content to work as the village apothecary. But when his brother’s death made him heir just as his father’s foolish decisions put the estate at risk, only the sale of a priceless possession—a ruby called the Bevoy—can save the family from ruin. But the gem has disappeared. And all trails lead to Iverness Curiosity Shop—and the beautiful shop girl who may be the answer to his many questions. Caught at the intersection of blessings and curses, greed and deceit, these two determined souls must unite to protect what they hold dear. But when a passion that shines far brighter than any gem is ignited, they will have to decide how much they are willing to risk for their future, love, and happiness. “An engaging Regency with a richly detailed setting and an unpredictable suspenseful plot.” —Library Journal “A delightful read, rich with period details.” —Sarah M.

Though wise beyond his years, young Liam quickly finds himself out of his depth in this land where long-held secrets and high-stakes agendas make no room for newcomers.

Book Summary: Fighter pilots! Images of Baron Manfred von Richthofen and Eddie Rickenbacker in the Great War, Johnnie Johnson, Robert Stanford Tuck and Richard Bong in the Second World War, or Robin Olds in Vietnam, all spring to mind. Volumes have been written about them, past and present. Understandably, most of these revolve around the skill, cunning and bravery that characterizes this distinctive band of brothers, but there are other dimensions to those who take to the skies to do battle that have not been given the emphasis they deserve – until now. You do not have to be an aviation aficionado to enjoy Colonel Steve Ladd’s fascinating personal tale, woven around his 28-year career as a fighter pilot. This extremely engaging account follows a young man from basic pilot training to senior command through the narratives that define a unique ethos. From the United States to Southeast Asia; Europe to the Middle East; linking the amusing and tongue-in-cheek to the deadly serious and poignant, this is the lifelong journey of a fighter pilot. The anecdotes provided are absorbing, providing an insight into life as an Air Force pilot, but, in this book, as Colonel Ladd stresses, the focus is not on fireworks or stirring tales of derring-do. Instead, this is an articulate and absorbing account of what life is really like among a rare breed of arrogant, cocky, boisterous and fun-loving young men who readily transform into steely professionals at the controls of a fighter aircraft. From F-4 Phantom to A-10 Warthog is a terrific read: the legacy of a fighter pilot.

Book Summary: We spend a lot of time arguing about how schools might be improved. But we rarely take a step back to ask what we as a society should be looking for from education—what exactly should those who make decisions be trying to achieve? In Educational Goods, two philosophers and two social scientists address this very question. They begin by broadening the language for talking about educational policy: “educational goods” are the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that children develop for their own benefit and that of others; “childhood goods” are the valuable experiences and freedoms that make childhood a distinct phase of life. Balancing those, and understanding that not all of them can be measured through traditional methods, is a key first step. From there, they show how to think clearly about how those goods are distributed and propose a method for combining values and evidence to reach decisions. They conclude by showing the method in action, offering detailed accounts of how it might be applied in school finance, accountability, and choice. The result is a reimagining of our decision making about schools, one that will sharpen our thinking on familiar debates and push us toward better outcomes.

Book Summary: THE GYPSY LOVER A Novel - Literary/Mainstream A seductive, mesmerizing tale eloquently told. Such is the consensus among readers and reviewers alike. This dark, haunting tale asks whether it is possible to survive a love that consumes you. To escape a life of abuse, fifteen-year-old Evan Adamson sacrifices the love of his childhood sweetheart only to find himself caught up in the ill-begotten adventures of three Gypsy outcasts who ultimately teach him the ways of the heart and the soul, and most importantly that, ...there will always be that in this world which goes beyond understanding and speaks to the heart in a more meaningful way. There is Mad Nikolai, who carries a secret beyond the possibility of thought; the old fortune-teller, who comes to accept Evan as part of their destiny; and Armanda, the sixteen-year-old beauty who reads the dark and foreboding enigmas in Evans palm. He is drawn by their powers and mesmerized by their ways, confused by visions and vague premonitions of things to come. The story is filled with Gypsy tales and curses, the bujo (a switch-the-bag swindle), murder, infidelity, love, and revenge. When Evan finds himself torn between the dark girl of his dreams and a promise he made to his mother years before, he sees in a single moment the reflection of his own true nature and the capacity for a love that transcends all else. By the very enigma of riddles, he comes to discover himself. And those discoveries are both heartbreaking and wise, as complex as they are devastating for in heaven and in our dreams, love is simple and glorious, but it is something quite different in the world of flesh. The Gypsy Lover is patterned loosely after the bildungsroman whose principal subject is the moral, psychological, and intellectual development of its youthful protagonist. The story is a thematic mystery, at the heart of which lie riddles and discovery. It is the story of love, acceptance and loss, of disaster and death, of renewal. The plot is circular and character driven (a boy in search of himself) and defined by a number of emotional turning points, which lead to climax and denouement where all things come back around. a real talent. The Gypsy Lover is a picaresque coming of age story, rich in plot, romance, tragedy, and theme. The Editorial Department A classic coming of age storyThe Gypsy Lover is an artfully written novel that can be understood on many different levels; it is a book worth reading several times to capture the full flavor of its message of hope, healing and redemption.
