From the bestselling author of The Woman on the Orient Express comes a haunting novel of two women--one determined to uncover the past and the other determined to escape it. At the close of World War II, London is in ruins and Rose Daniel isn't at peace. Eight years ago, her brother disappeared while fighting alongside Gypsy partisans in Spain. From his letters, Rose has just two clues to his whereabouts--his descriptions of the spectacular south slopes of the Sierra Nevada and his love for a woman who was carrying his child. In Spain, it has been eight years since Lola Aragon's family was massacred. Eight years since she rescued a newborn girl from the arms of her dying mother and ran for her life. She has always believed that nothing could make her return...until a plea for help comes from a desperate stranger. Now, Rose, Lola, and the child set out on a journey from the wild marshes of the Camargue to the dazzling peaks of Spain's ancient mountain communities. As they come face-to-face with war's darkest truths, their lives will be changed forever by memories, secrets, and friendships.

A vivid and funny memoir about growing up Gypsy and becoming American Fifteen-year-old Oksana Marafioti is a Gypsy. This means touring with the family band from the Mongolian deserts to the Siberian tundra. It means getting your hair cut in "the Lioness." It also means enduring sneering racism from every segment of Soviet society. Her father is determined that his girls lead a better, freer life. In America! Also, he wants to play guitar with B. B. King. And cure cancer with his personal magnetism. All of this he confides to the woman at the American embassy, who inexplicably allows the family entry. Soon they are living on the sketchier side of Hollywood. What little Oksana and her sister, Roxy, know of the United States they've learned from MTV, subcategory George Michael. It doesn't quite prepare them for the challenges of immigration. Why are the glamorous Kraft Singles individually wrapped? Are the little soaps in the motels really free? How do you protect your nice new boyfriend from your opinionated father, who wants you to marry decently, within the clan? In this affecting, hilarious memoir, Marafioti cracks open the secretive world of the Roma and brings the absurdities, miscommunications, and unpredictable victories of the immigrant experience to life. With unsentimentally perfect pitch, American Gypsy reveals how Marafioti adjusted to her new life in America, one slice of processed cheese at a time.

Then, one night, a chance encounter with a handsome chicken thief named Azriel changes her life forever.

Aweigh of Life is a memoir and travel tale of one woman’s unique adventures of sailing and living in the South Pacific during the 1970s. Interlaced with her adventurous tales, she explores the emotional scars from her dysfunctional upbringing as she morphed from seeking the adventure to seeking simplicity and then being called into motherhood. With an honest insight, she examines the choices she made during the seven years during which she experienced the beauty and generosity of the less-developed island peoples of Oceania, riding out gales and hurricanes, going bush in New Zealand, building a thatched hut and doing subsistence farming, and, eventually, returning to sailing, ending up delivering her first child on a remote island of grass-skirted, betel nut–chewing natives in Papua New Guinea.

"Where would I begin to explain it all...?" Twenty-six years have passed since the death of Jane Austen. Armed with a lock of Austen's hair as perhaps her best clue, Anne Sharp, former governess to the Austen family and Jane's close friend, has decided at last to tell her story-a story of family intrigues, shocking secrets, forbidden loves, and maybe even murder... Perfect for fans of Death Comes to Pemberley, upon its publication in the UK, Lindsay Ashford's fictional interpretation of the few facts surrounding Jane Austen's mysterious death sparked an international debate and uproar. None of the medical theories offer a satisfactory explanation of Jane Austen's early demise at the age of forty-one. Could it be that what everyone has assumed was a death by natural causes was actually more sinister? Lindsay Ashford's vivid novel delves deep into Austen's world and puts forth a shocking suggestion-was someone out to silence her?
