The Lighthouse Road by Summary

The story moves back and forth in time from the arrival of Thea from her isolated village in arctic Norway in search of a new life in the near wilderness of a small town and logging camp on the shore of Lake Superior to the travails of her orphaned son, Odd, some twenty years later. When Thea’s aunt and uncle do not meet her boat as planned, she’s initially left abandoned with no money or prospects and without speaking the language. Befriended by a local businessman and apothecary with secrets of his own, she obtains work as a cook in the nearby logging camp. While living through one of the coldest and threatening winters in memory, she is raped by an itinerant peddler and petty criminal. She delivers the baby in a blinding snowstorm the next fall, attended by her original benefactor and his “daughter” who is also the town’s surgeon and midwife, but she soon dies of childbirth complications. The apothecary, Grimm, takes the infant into his household and the boy is raised more or less by the entire town, eventually growing up under Grimm’s influence to be a fisherman, smuggler for Grimm’s whiskey trade, and a boat builder. Still, he struggles to find himself and to reconcile the loss of his mother, and he becomes increasingly troubled by Grimm’s criminal enterprises and dirty secrets until an unlikely love affair puts everything on a collision course.

The Druid of Harley Street by E. Graham Howe Summary

In early 20th-century Britain, interest in psychoanalysis was high, leading to the formation of the famous Tavistock Clinic in 1920. E. Graham Howe was one of the clinic’s founders and the first to publish articles on psychotherapy. At the same time, he was attacked by the “scientific” psychiatry and psychoanalysis communities because he took concepts derived from spiritual practice and existential phenomenology and applied them to an understanding of psychotherapy. Howe’s writings included more than a dozen books and countless articles on a broad range of subjects from schizophrenia to Asian spiritual practices. Through these works he exerted a profound influence on intellectuals such as R. D. Laing, Alan Watts, and Henry Miller, to name a few. Howe also wrote in a simple and clear style, making his work accessible to the general public. The Druid of Harley Street samples the best of his essays, offering timely insights for followers of Jung, Roberto Assagioli, and Mark Epstein; students of somatic therapies; and spiritual and meditation practitioners. The book also offers a fascinating glimpse of a great mind, the notable people in his life, and the heady times in which he lived. From the Trade Paperback edition.

HALLBOYS are six linked short stories about the escapades and dreams of young Chip Rock and his pals, the Hallboys, who grow up in the shabby orphanage known as Boys Hall, in the seedy SoCal beach town of No Palms. Can beautiful motives come from the ugliest settings? They can at Boys Hall. From the chores of scraping seagull poop off the front steps to forever battling the cranky hags at the hated No Palms Women's Club, the Hallboys know all the tricks. Each story mixes humor and humanity while rising to a surprising and memorable ending. They underscore the vivid imagination of children, and their adventures which lead to friendships and bonds that last a lifetime. CHIP ROCK doesn't have a traditional family. As an orphan at BOYS HALL, the wilting orphanage in a sinking SoCal beach town, his 'brothers' are a rag-tag bunch of Hallboys who match wits with the old bats at the Women's Club, fish off the creaking pier, and chase pirates around the ruins of the ancient lighthouse. HALLBOYS shows how shared struggles can build the bonds of friendship -- to forge families and brotherhood. Author Michael Daswick was awarded both of Columbia's finest literary awards, The Bennett Cerf Memorial Prize for Fiction, and the Cornell Woolrich Fellowship for Creative Writing. HALLBOYS is the prequel to the novel, CHIP ROCK and the FAT OLD FART, which describes Chip's heartache and heroics after he's aged out of Boys Hall.

Authored by three mental health professionals with many years of experience counseling veterans, Courage After Fire provides strategies and techniques for this challenging journey home. Courage After Fire offers soldiers and their families a comprehensive guide to dealing with the all-too-common repercussions of combat duty, including posttraumatic stress symptoms, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. It details state-of-the-art treatments for these difficulties and outlines specific ways to improve couple and family relationships. It also offers tips on areas such as rejoining the workforce and reconnecting with children. “A crucial tool for the men and women who have been serving our country so VALIANTLY during these past years.” —Senator Bob Dole, from the foreword “This extraordinary work will help the men and women returning from Iraq and Afghanistan find the COURAGE to rebuild their lives and be successful.” —Honorable Anthony J. Principi, Former Secretary of Veterans Affairs

Seven Days Dead by John Farrow Summary

During an epic storm in the Gulf of Maine a lone woman races--first by car, then by a life-threatening sea crossing--to the island of Grand Manan. Her father is dying—will she make it in time? Others also venture out into the maelstrom that night, including a mysterious band of men and women who gather on Seven Days Work, the sheer cliff that overlooks the wild sea. A housekeeper, a pastor, and a strange recluse are also wandering about out in the tempest. Who else risks being out in the turbulent black night? And how many murder victims will be revealed at the break of dawn? Such questions will engage retired Montreal detective Émile Cinq-Mars. He and his wife seek shelter from the same storm as they make their way to the island for a rare summer vacation from both his police work and her horse stable. With a mounting death toll, a lengthy list of suspects, and a murder in the deep past that somehow affects the present, Cinq-Mars is drawn into uncovering ancient secrets that have led to murder. When the villainy turns against him, another race ensues, this time to solve the crimes before his visit to the island ends in tragedy. John Farrow's Seven Days Dead continues the Émile Cinq-Mars series of crime novels, which Booklist has called “one of the best series in crime fiction,”; Die Zeit in Germany has suggested it might be the best of all time.

Housebroken by Barbara Leith Summary

The gnarly enigma of sustained love, the nightmares of loss or betrayalthese are the problems examined thematically in Housebroken, instantly pulling us into the complexities of intimacyintimacy which paradoxically repels and attracts. In richly detailed settings ranging from Aegean islands to Australian beaches, these stories deal with conflicted characters, many of whom see themselves as disconnected outsiders, emotionally landlocked or alienated like Molly, a young American expatriatein her heart shes Spanishbut where and what is home? Or the lovesick New England professor out of his depth in a seedy Southern steel town. Others flee danger from within. A Victorian scholar facing unnamed horrors coming after him From Below. Or Roberto, the poetry-quoting drug dealer never able to outrun his sexual obsession. A patriarch whos escaped the Nazis but not his punitive conscience. Life-lessons are learned & unlearned as these lovers and loners weave between hope and disenchantment, isolation and communion. Ultimately, after groping through confusing rituals, contradictory ground rules, each arrives at a revelation which illuminates (if not resolves) the passionate connections & disconnects all of us encounter in our lifelong pilgrimage of the heart.

To Catch a Killer by Sheryl Scarborough Summary

“A twisty, cold-case mystery custom made for fans of Sara Shepard, PLL and Veronica Mars! The edge-of-your-seat plot, sinister backstory and smart, brave and irreverent main character made this whodunit unputdownable.”—Justine Magazine In To Catch a Killer, a contemporary mystery by debut author Sheryl Scarborough, a teenage girl uses forensic science to solve the cold-case murder of her mother. Erin Blake has one of those names. A name that is inextricably linked to a grisly crime. As a toddler, Erin survived for three days alongside the corpse of her murdered mother, and the case—which remains unsolved—fascinated a nation. Her father's identity unknown, Erin was taken in by her mother's best friend and has become a relatively normal teen in spite of the looming questions about her past. Fourteen years later, Erin is once again at the center of a brutal homicide when she finds the body of her biology teacher. When questioned by the police, Erin tells almost the whole truth, but never voices her suspicions that her mother's killer has struck again in order to protect the casework she's secretly doing on her own. Inspired by her uncle, an FBI agent, Erin has ramped up her forensic hobby into a full-blown cold-case investigation. This new murder makes her certain she's close to the truth, but when all the evidence starts to point the authorities straight to Erin, she turns to her longtime crush (and fellow suspect) Journey Michaels to help her crack the case before it's too late. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
