Cottage by the Sea


by Ciji Ware

One woman, one man, one shared fate…

What would you do if you caught your sister in bed with your husband? Chances are at the very least you’d nix your relationship with both of them and run as far away as you could get–especially if the story is going to be plastered all over the tabloids. This is exactly what Hollywood mogul Blythe Stowe does. She heads to England and the Cornish Coast. There she steeps herself in Daphne du Maurier’s wonderful novels, finds love with an Englishman, and discovers family secrets that have been long concealed.

50 Ways to Hex Your Lover

by Linda Wisdom

When she isn’t getting into trouble with her oddball companions-a vicious pair of bunny slippers and a frustrated ghost who haunts her sports car-hot-tempered witch Jazz Tremaine earns money lifting hexes and driving limos for Southern California’s All Creatures Limo Service. When the vampire cop she’s loved and hated for centuries, Nikolai Gregorivich, seeks her help in catching a serial vampire slayer, Jazz fends him off to focus on her own problems (the sleazeball limo service owner; a client who generates supernaturally disgusting odors). She can’t resist her sexy vamp lover for long, though, especially as clues in the killings point to an evil figure from her past. With clever writing, a high sensuality factor and an unfettered imagination, Wisdom makes a sparkling entry into lite urban paranormals. (Mar.)

Brains:

How They Work and What that Tells Us About Who We Are
by Dale Purves

It may be the hardest problem in science: How do our brains really work?

In Brains, one of the field’s leading scientists takes you on a guided tour through the recent history of neuroscience and offers a notion as to where neuroscience may well be headed next.

Purves offers a critical assessment of the paths that neuroscience research has taken, both their successes and their limitations, and then introduces an alternative approach for thinking about brains. Building on new research on visual perception, he shows why common ideas about brain networks can’t be right and uncovers the evolutionary drivers behind complex neural processes.

In this deeply personal book, you’ll gain a new understanding into how brains appear to work—and how world-class scientists work, too.

Trusting God


by Jerry Bridges

A tragic car accident. The unexpected death of a child. Chronic illness. How can a good and compassionate God allow such unjust things? How can we trust a God who does allow them?

Rejoin Jerry Bridges in the updated packaging of the classic Trusting God. In an effort to strengthen his own trust in God during a time of adversity, Jerry began a lengthy Bible study searching God’s sovereignty. The revelations changed his life. In Trusting God, he shares with readers the scope of God’s power, and through this they come to know Him better and trust Him more-even when unjust things happen.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass

Barnes & Noble Classics Series
by Lewis Carroll

Alice begins her adventures when she follows the frantically delayed White Rabbit down a hole into the magical world of Wonderland, where she meets a variety of wonderful creatures, including Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Cheshire Cat, the hookah-smoking Caterpillar, the Mad Hatter, and the Queen of Hearts—who, with the help of her enchanted deck of playing cards, tricks Alice into playing a bizarre game of croquet. Alice continues her adventures in Through the Looking-Glass, which is loosely based on a game of chess and includes Carroll’s famous poem “Jabberwocky.”

Throughout her fantastic journeys, Alice retains her reason, humor, and sense of justice. She has become one of the great characters of imaginative literature, as immortal as Don Quixote, Huckleberry Finn, Captain Ahab, Sherlock Holmes, and Dorothy Gale of Kansas.

When You Went Away

by Michael Baron

Only a few months ago, Gerry Rubato had everything he thought he needed from life. He was passionately in love with his college sweetheart after nearly twenty years of marriage, he had a bright, independent-minded daughter, and he had the surprising addition of a new child on the way. Then everything changed with stunning rapidity. With little explanation, his daughter ran away with her older boyfriend. Then, only a month after giving birth to their son, his wife died suddenly.

Now, Gerry needs to be everything to his infant child while he contends with two losses he can barely comprehend. And when a woman walks into his life as a friend and their relationship verges on something more, Gerry must redefine all that he knows about himself, about love, about loyalty, and about his dreams.

Secret Holocaust Diaries:

The Untold Story of Nonna Bannister
by Nonna Bannister, Denise George, Carolyn Tomlin

Russian refugee Bannister (1927–2004) rarely spoke about her brutal experiences under the regimes of Stalin and Hitler, not even to the American she married after the war. In this memoir, she reveals how a privileged childhood in the 1920s and ’30s gave way to horror and loss in the 1940s. Although the sound quality of this production is poor (lots of rustling papers), Rebecca Gallagher does reasonably well with the multiple languages and wisely avoids attempting to replicate European accents. What is irritating, however, is the constant interruption in the form of unnecessary editor’s notes, which make the narrative choppy and disjointed. More helpful is the seventh disc, which contains an interview with Bannister’s husband and son, a precious audio reminiscence from Nonna herself, recorded in 1993, and abundant PDF materials, including maps, photographs and genealogical data. A Tyndale hardcover. (June – Publishers Weekly)
