They're so sorry... They've made a terrible mistake... There's nothing they can do... They have to take your daughter away. You have three weeks to say goodbye. After years of trying for a child, Jack and Melissa McGuane adopted a beautiful baby girl. Nine months later, a call from the adoption agency plunges them into every parent's worst nightmare: the father never signed away his parental rights, and now he wants his daughter back. The biological father is a sullen eighteen-year-old with gangland connections, and, even worse, is the son of a well-connected federal judge who is prepared to use the full weight of his influence to get what he wants. Together they wage a harrowing campaign of intimidation and harassment aimed at destroying the McGuanes before they can fight back. Jack and Melissa know that the boy has no love for his daughter, but what they don't know is why he and the judge want the girl so badly. With three weeks until they must legally hand over their baby, just how far outside the law are they prepared to go to find out?

“[Art Buchwald] has given his friends, their families, and his audiences so many laughs and so much joy through the years that that alone would be an enduring legacy. But Art has never been just about the quick laugh. His humor is a road map to essential truths and insights that might otherwise have eluded us.”—Tom Brokaw When doctors told Art Buchwald that his kidneys were kaput, the renowned humorist declined dialysis and checked into a Washington, D.C., hospice to live out his final days. Months later, “The Man Who Wouldn’t Die” was still there, feeling good, holding court in a nonstop “salon” for his family and dozens of famous friends, and confronting things you usually don’t talk about before you die; he even jokes about them. Here Buchwald shares not only his remarkable experience—as dozens of old pals from Ethel Kennedy to John Glenn to the Queen of Swaziland join the party—but also his whole wonderful life: his first love, an early brush with death in a foxhole on Eniwetok Atoll, his fourteen champagne years in Paris, fame as a columnist syndicated in hundreds of newspapers, and his incarnation as hospice superstar. Buchwald also shares his sorrows: coping with an absent mother, childhood in a foster home, and separation from his wife, Ann. He plans his funeral (with a priest, a rabbi, and Billy Graham, to cover all the bases) and strategizes how to land a big obituary in The New York Times (“Make sure no head of state or Nobel Prize winner dies on the same day”). He describes how he and a few of his famous friends finagled cut-rate burial plots on Martha’s Vineyard and how he acquired a Picasso drawing without really trying. What we have here is a national treasure, the complete Buchwald, uncertain of where the next days or weeks may take him but unfazed by the inevitable, living life to the fullest, with frankness, dignity, and humor.

Funny thing about Love is that we rarely see it coming especially for the first time. It sidelines our hearts and repositions our minds. The journey of falling in love is a road we all travel and discover the happiness, the pain, the countless emotions that unravel. Journey Thru Love takes you down my path of falling in love for the first time. As odd as the journey was, I hold it dear because it was mine. Peer deep into my sea of emotions in a time when I was drowning in love, not knowing if I’d ever see the surface above. So open your heart and your mind and travel this road with me. As I pour out my heart and soul for you to see. And in every line, every poem, my heart and soul is what you’ll see.

A dramatic short story of justice both old and new from the New York Times-bestselling author of BREAKING POINT and THE HIGHWAY.

An exciting new addition to the series that combines harrowing adrenaline rushes with complex morality, humour, and a landscape described so vibrantly it seems to have a life all its own.

Laurie Moss seemed to come out of nowhere, but behind those songs, behind that powerful voice, lies a history. Say Goodbye takes you from her Texas roots to her first recording contract, from her struggling days in LA to her final tour – and beyond. It's also the story of her relationship with the legendary singer and songwriter Skip Shaw, whose passion for self-destruction illuminated her career like a bonfire. The battlefield for Say Goodbye may be the music industry, but its themes are universal: success and failure, love and loss, obsession and forgiveness.

Eden faces a final reckoning when the cult's past victims hunt them down in this explosive, high-stakes thriller in the Sacramento series from New York Times bestselling author Karen Rose. For decades, Eden has remained hidden in the remote wilds of the Pacific Northwest, “Pastor” keeping his cult's followers in thrall for his personal profit and sexual pleasures. But the Founding Elders are splintering, and Pastor's surrogate son DJ is scheming to make it all his own. When two of Eden's newest members send out a cry for help, it reaches FBI Special Agent Tom Hunter, whose friend and fellow FBI Special Agent Gideon Reynolds and his sister, Mercy, are themselves escapees of the Eden cult, targeted by the Founding Elders who want them silenced forever. The three have vowed to find the cult and bring it down, and now, they finally have a solid lead. Neutralizing Eden’s threat will save captive members and ensure Tom’s new friends can live without fear. But when his best friend, ex-Army combat medic Liza Barkley, joins the case, it puts her life—and their blossoming love—in danger. With everything they hold dear in the balance, Tom and Liza, together with Gideon and Mercy, must end Eden once and for all.

This book is a collection of papers by clinicians united in their conviction about the importance of directly engaging and interacting with the baby in the presence of the parents whenever possible. This approach, which draws on the work of Winnicott, Trevarthen and Stern, honours the baby as subject. It re-presents the baby to the parents who may in that way see a new child, in turn shaping the infant's implicit memories and reflective thinking. Recent neurobiological, attachment and developmental psychology models inform the work. The book describes the underpinning theoretical principles and the settings and forms of direct clinical practice, ranging from work with acutely ill babies, to more everyday interventions in crying, feeding and sleeping difficulties, as well as infant-parent psychotherapy. Clinicians at The Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne from the disciplines of psychiatry, psychoanalysis, psychology, nursing, speech pathology, child psychotherapy, paediatrics, and music therapy describe their work with ill and suffering babies and their families.

The death of a loved one is difficult for a myriad of reasons, and coming to terms with our grief demands attention and energy. Sudden, unexpected death can be challenging to negotiate and requires some different coping strategies. The simple word ‘disbelief’ can be a significant hurdle for months. Since each person’s grief response is highly personal and individual to them, this book is less prescriptive than it is one of honouring one person’s response to the sudden death of her husband. And while there are some common predictors in bereavement, the telling of one’s story is often the greatest healer.

Having spent a gloomy semester in Paris as a student long ago, Franny Laforet is one Californian who doesn't harbor any romantic notions about France. All the same, she finds herself drafted as scout for a group of friends planning a reunion at a Provenal chteau. Her plane unfortunately lands at De Gaulle at the time of the attack on the World Trade Center. With the rest of the group stuck back home due to the cancellation of transatlantic flights, Franny seems fated to a lonely vacation spent exploring the countryside around the chteau and speculating about the natives. The natives meanwhile have their own preoccupations. The chtelain himself, Hughes Degency, an ex-banker struggling to establish an organic winery, has been reduced to camping out in the woods while he rents his posh residence to Americans he detests. Franny and Hughes soon discover that national antagonism is no obstacle to sexual attraction. Serendipity eventually fills the chateau with a mixture of French and American guests whose intentions are not uniformly honorable. Amidst the ensuing bustle, cross-cultural debates and nefarious schemes, the would-be lovers will have a very short time to work out their feelings.

To keep her small family together, Isobel Barrington managed to make ends meet—just!—by doing private nursing jobs. Her mother had only a small pension and her younger brother had to be educated somehow. Isobel really shouldn't have had time to fall in love with Dr. Thomas Winters—but she did anyway. Unfortunately, he wasn't likely to be interested in her when the lovely Ella Stokes was around, so Isobel ought to try to forget him. Easier said than done!
