Book Summary: International intrigue leads to murder at an English manor house in this classic mystery introducing the detection skills of Superintendent Battle. Never do favors—that’s the lesson it would’ve behooved Anthony Cade to learn before getting himself wrapped up in a case of conspiracy and murder. Politician George Lomax has persuaded Lord Caterham to host a weekend party at Chimneys, his country estate. Lomax hopes to cement plans to reinstate the monarchy in Herzegovina. But when the prince of Herzegovina turns up dead, Cade has a lot of explaining to do. After all, his footprints were found on the grounds . . . though not inside the house. As one criminal conspiracy leads to another, both Scotland Yard and the French Sûreté are on the scene to set things right. Soon, thanks to the detective work of Superintendent Battle, everyone’s secrets—and the secret of Chimneys itself—will be on display.

Book Summary: NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the co-author of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society comes a wise, witty, and exuberant novel, perfect for fans of Lee Smith, that illuminates the power of loyalty and forgiveness, memory and truth, and the courage it takes to do what’s right. Annie Barrows once again evokes the charm and eccentricity of a small town filled with extraordinary characters. Her new novel, The Truth According to Us, brings to life an inquisitive young girl, her beloved aunt, and the alluring visitor who changes the course of their destiny forever. In the summer of 1938, Layla Beck’s father, a United States senator, cuts off her allowance and demands that she find employment on the Federal Writers’ Project, a New Deal jobs program. Within days, Layla finds herself far from her accustomed social whirl, assigned to cover the history of the remote mill town of Macedonia, West Virginia, and destined, in her opinion, to go completely mad with boredom. But once she secures a room in the home of the unconventional Romeyn family, she is drawn into their complex world and soon discovers that the truth of the town is entangled in the thorny past of the Romeyn dynasty. At the Romeyn house, twelve-year-old Willa is desperate to learn everything in her quest to acquire her favorite virtues of ferocity and devotion—a search that leads her into a thicket of mysteries, including the questionable business that occupies her charismatic father and the reason her adored aunt Jottie remains unmarried. Layla’s arrival strikes a match to the family veneer, bringing to light buried secrets that will tell a new tale about the Romeyns. As Willa peels back the layers of her family’s past, and Layla delves deeper into town legend, everyone involved is transformed—and their personal histories completely rewritten. Praise for The Truth According to Us “As delightfully eccentric as Guernsey yet refreshingly different . . . an epic but intimate family novel with richly imagined characters . . . Willa’s indomitable spirit, keen sense of adventure and innate intelligence reminded me of two other motherless girls in literature: Scout Finch in Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird and Flavia de Luce in Alan Bradley’s big-hearted British mystery series.”—The Washington Post “The Truth According to Us has all the characteristics of a great summer read: A plot that makes you want to keep turning the pages; a setting that makes you feel like you’re inhabiting another time and place; and characters who become people you’re sad to leave behind—and thus who always stay with you.”—Miami Herald “It takes a brave author to make the heroine of a new novel an observant and feisty girl . . . like Scout Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird. . . . But Barrows . . . has created a believable and touching character in Willa.”—USA Today “[A] heartwarming coming-of-age novel [that] sparkles with folksy depictions of a tight-knit family and life in a small town . . . full of richly drawn, memorable characters.”—The Seattle Times “A big, juicy family saga with warm humor and tragic twists . . . The story gets more and more absorbing as it moves briskly along.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch “Annie Barrows leaves no doubt that she is a storyteller of rare caliber, with wisdom and insight to spare. Every page rings like a bell.”—Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife

Book Summary: This stunning new novel from Tatiana de Rosnay, author of the acclaimed New York Times bestseller Sarah's Key, plumbs the depths of complex family relationships and the power of a past secret to change everything in the present. It all began with a simple seaside vacation, a brother and sister recapturing their childhood. Antoine Rey thought he had the perfect surprise for his sister Mélanie's birthday: a weekend by the sea at Noirmoutier Island, where the pair spent many happy childhood summers playing on the beach. It had been too long, Antoine thought, since they'd returned to the island—over thirty years, since their mother died and the family holidays ceased. But the island's haunting beauty triggers more than happy memories; it reminds Mélanie of something unexpected and deeply disturbing about their last island summer. When, on the drive home to Paris, she finally summons the courage to reveal what she knows to Antoine, her emotions overcome her and she loses control of the car. Recovering from the accident in a nearby hospital, Mélanie tries to recall what caused her to crash. Antoine encounters an unexpected ally: sexy, streetwise Angèle, a mortician who will teach him new meanings for the words life, love and death. Suddenly, however, the past comes swinging back at both siblings, burdened with a dark truth about their mother, Clarisse. Trapped in the wake of a shocking family secret shrouded by taboo, Antoine must confront his past and also his troubled relationships with his own children. How well does he really know his mother, his children, even himself? Suddenly fragile on all fronts as a son, a husband, a brother and a father, Antoine Rey will learn the truth about his family and himself the hard way. By turns thrilling, seductive and destructive, with a lingering effect that is bittersweet and redeeming, A Secret Kept is the story of a modern family, the invisible ties that hold it together, and the impact it has throughout life. A film is now in production, to star Melanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds, Now You See Me), Laurent Lafitte (The Crimson Rivers, Little White Lies), and Audrey Dana (Roman de Gare, The Clink of Ice) and will begin shooting in April!

Book Summary: James Miranda Barry fut médecin militaire, chirurgien avant-gardiste, inspecteur général des hôpitaux de Sa Majesté et... l'un des plus grands imposteurs de tous les temps. Au moment de sa mort en 1865, au terme d'une carrière de plus de quarante ans au sein de l'armée britannique, James Miranda Barry n'a pas eu droit aux honneurs dus à son rang. Les autorités militaires ont plutôt jugé bon de l'enterrer à la sauvette, dans un coin reculé d'un cimetière quelconque. Car le scandale qui éclata à sa mort était d'une telle ampleur, qu'il devint la principale raison pour laquelle Barry passerait à l'histoire, reléguant dans l'ombre presque tout ce que le médecin avait mis tant d'efforts et d'années à accomplir. Dans chacune des colonies où on l'avait posté, James Barry avait fait tout en son pouvoir pour améliorer les conditions de vie et les soins de ses patients. Il avait forgé sa réputation sur une pratique nouvelle et moderne de la médecine, par sa spécialisation dans les domaines de la chirurgie, des maladies tropicales, de l'obstétrique, du traitement de la lèpre et des maladies vénériennes. Sur trois continents, Barry a imposé des nouvelles conditions sanitaires, des méthodes révolutionnaires de quarantaine, des diètes alimentaires, ainsi que des traitements efficaces contre les plus terribles maladies connues à l'époque. Sans contredit, les réformes de James Barry ont sauvé des milliers de vies à travers le monde. Mais pourquoi a-t-on profané ainsi la mémoire d'un brillant médecin, dont les accomplissements n'avaient d'égal que la controverse dont Barry aura été l'auteur presque tout au long de sa vie? Sylvie Ouellette retrace ici la vie et la carrière d'un être humain hors de l'ordinaire, qui n'était absolument pas ce que ses contemporains auraient pu croire.

Book Summary: Il m’a fallu presque cinq ans pour écrire ce livre. Lorsque j’ai pour la première fois commencé à y réfléchir et à prier pour cela, l’un des sujets de prière était : “Seigneur, accorde que le manuscrit soit achevé d’ici septembre 1986”. Je rédigeai alors une partie de ce livre à l’époque, mais je m’étais rendu compte que si je continuais à écrire, je présenterais de belles théories qui ne se vérifiaient pas toutes dans ma vie. Je décidai alors d’attendre. Je repris la rédaction du livre en 1988, et je fis du progrès. Mais l’honnêteté me contraignit d’arrêter; car je devais écrire uniquement ce qui, dans mon expérience, se vérifiait dans ma vie. Le Seigneur a été très bon envers moi au cours des trois dernières années. Il m’a fait connaître le repos spirituel dans plusieurs domaines, y inclus notre ministère et ma promotion au rang de Professeur à l’Université. Il y a un mois, j’ai senti que je pouvais écrire le livre et que ma vie n’en contredirait pas le contenu. C’était comme si un grand fardeau se saisissait de moi pour la rédaction de ce livre. Plusieurs croyants se sont mis à prier incessamment pour moi pendant que j’écrivais le livre. Je n’étais pas tout à fait prêt à digérer certaines des choses que j’avais découvertes ces dernières semaines, choses relatives au Corps de Christ et à la nécessité d’être en paix avec chaque croyant. Cependant, Dieu m’a tenu par la main. Mes yeux, ayant été ouverts, j’ai entrepris les restitutions nécessaires. Ce matin, je suis allé chercher un frère avec qui nous avions eu un problème pendant longtemps. Je lui ai demandé pardon, il m’a pardonné, et nous avons prié ensemble. Il a demandé pardon à Dieu pour son propre tort. Je suis allé vers un deuxième frère, mais il était absent. Il y a un troisième avec qui je chercherai à être réconcilié cette semaine. Je ne puis recrucifier le Seigneur en omettant d’ôter chaque barrière que je peux ôter entre moi et quiconque confesse que Jésus est Seigneur. Je crois fermement que ceci n’est qu’un début, et que le Saint-Esprit me conduira encore plus de l’avant jusqu’à ce que je sois capable de dire sans me tromper que j’ai fait tout ce qui dépendait de moi pour être en paix avec tous ceux qui confessent le nom du Seigneur. C’est là un aspect du repos spirituel. D’autres aspects sont traités dans ce livre. Pendant que tu lis ce livre, ma prière pour toi est que tu sois ouvert au Saint-Esprit et que tu Lui obéisses à n’importe quel prix, quelque soit l’endroit où Il pourrait te conduire. Je te confie au Seigneur, qui a dit : “Je vous laisse la paix, je vous donne ma paix. Je ne vous la donne pas comme le monde la donne. Que votre coeur ne se trouble point, et ne s’alarme point” (Jean 14:27). Puisses-tu connaître Sa paix pendant que tu lis et connaître aussi Sa paix pendant que tu obéis. C’est cela aussi le repos spirituel.

Book Summary: In the late morning of May 29, 1953, the sun was shining brightly and a gentle breeze was blowing on the highest elevation of the world--and two men were there to witness it for the first time ever. Their names were Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, and they had ascended Everest. This is the breathtaking story of how two very different, yet equally determined, men battled frost-biting temperatures, tumbling ice rocks, powerful winds, and death-defying ridges to reach the top of the world's highest mountain. Combining fresh and contemporary illustrations by Joe Todd-Stanton with Alexandra Stewart's captivating writing, this unique narrative tells the story of how Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made their mark on the world from birth right up to their final days and the impact they've had on Nepal today.

Book Summary: A simple practice to heal your past and cleanse negative memories to live a more peaceful and harmonious life • Details how to apply Ho'oponopono to deal with traumatic past events, destructive thought patterns, family dynamics, daily annoyances, or any other disagreeable event in your life, from traffic jams to relationship break-ups • Draws on the new science of epigenetics and quantum physics to explain how Ho'oponopono works • Explains how the trauma of past events can cloud your perceptions and reveals how to break free from the weight of your memories Based on an ancestral Hawaiian shamanic ritual, the healing practice of Ho'oponopono teaches you to cleanse your consciousness of negative memories, unconscious fears, and dysfunctional programming and grant yourself forgiveness, peace, and love. The process is deceptively simple--first you must recognize your own responsibility for creating the events in your life, then you are ready to apply the mantra of Ho'oponopono: I’m sorry, Forgive me, Thank you, I love you. Repeated several times over a dedicated interval, the negativity is replaced with inner peace, love, and harmony--and, as the stories in this book show, sometimes even miracles take place. In this step-by-step guide, the authors explain how to apply Ho'oponopono to traumatic past events, destructive thought patterns, family dynamics, daily annoyances, or any other disagreeable event in your life, from traffic jams to relationship break-ups. Drawing on quantum physics and epigenetics, they explore how Ho'oponopono works--how thoughts and consciousness can affect the expression of your DNA, the materialization of your goals, and the behavior of those around you. They explain how negative thought patterns and memories unconsciously guide your life and draw more negativity to you, perpetuating the cycle of bad events and clouding your recollection of the past. By apologizing to yourself, your memory, and the event in question, you can forgive yourself, heal your memories, and cleanse your perceptions. By reconciling with yourself, you open your heart to love for your experiences, yourself, and others and bring harmony to your mind, body, and the world around you.

Book Summary: One woman 10,000 miles on foot 6 countries 8 pairs of hiking boots 3,000 cups of tea 1,000 days and nights "The only way to survive three years of walking was to embrace the moment of now.”—from Wild by Nature Not since Cheryl Strayed gifted us with her adventure on the Pacific Crest Trail in her memoir, Wild, has there been such a powerful epic adventure by a woman alone. In Wild by Nature, National Geographic Explorer Sarah Marquis takes you on the trail of her ten-thousand-mile solo hike across the remote Gobi desert from Siberia to Thailand, at which point she was transported by boat to complete the hike at her favorite tree in Australia. Against nearly insurmountable odds and relying on hunting and her own wits, Sarah Marquis survived the Mafia, drug dealers, thieves on horseback who harassed her tent every night for weeks, temperatures from subzero to scorching, life-threatening wildlife, a dengue fever delirium in the Laos jungle, tropic ringworm in northern Thailand, dehydration, and a life-threatening abscess. This is an incredible story of adventure, human ingenuity, persistence, and resilience that shows firsthand what it is to adventure as a woman in the most dangerous of circumstance, what it is to be truly alone in the wild, and why someone would challenge themselves with an expedition others would call crazy. For Marquis, her story is about freedom, being alive and wild by nature.
