Penny adores her best friend Rodney. He’s always there for her, and she knows they’d be the perfect couple—except that they’re still in high school, and she’s watched too many friends go through painful breakups. Besides, Penny has bigger things to worry about—like her mother, who desperately wants to have more children.
After an endless string of miscarriages and failed adoptions, Penny’s mother is ready to give up hope. But Penny has the perfect plan: if she gets pregnant, she can give her mother the baby she’s always wanted. Penny’s sure this is the right thing to do, but only after she sets her plan in motion does she realize that sex will change her relationship with Rodney—in ways that she never expected. And the more she tries to fix things for her mother, the more she risks losing everything she wants for herself.
All Penny wants is for the people she loves to be happy. So why isn’t anything going the way that she planned? [close]

A lost gospel, a contentious relic, and a dying pope’s final wish converge to send two brothers—both Vatican priests—on an intellectual quest to untangle Christianity’s greatest historical mystery.View Details »
In 2004, as Pope John Paul II’s reign enters its twilight, a mysterious exhibit is under construction at the Vatican Museums. A week before it is scheduled to open, its curator is murdered at a clandestine meeting on the outskirts of Rome. The same night, a violent break-in rocks the home of the curator’s research partner, Father Alex Andreou, a Greek Catholic priest who lives inside the Vatican with his five-year-old son. When the papal police fail to identify a suspect in either crime, Father Alex, desperate to keep his family safe, undertakes his own investigation. To find the killer he must reconstruct the dead curator’s secret: what the four Christian gospels—and a little-known, true-to-life fifth gospel known as the Diatessaron—reveal about the Church’s most controversial holy relic. But just as he begins to understand the truth about his friend’s death and its consequences for the future of the world’s two largest Christian Churches, Father Alex finds himself hunted down by someone with vested stakes in the exhibit—someone he must outwit to survive.
At once a riveting literary thriller, a feast of biblical history and scholarship, and a moving family drama, The Fifth Gospel is a novel about the depths of sacrifice and the power of forgiveness. Rich, authentic, erudite, and emotionally searing, it satisfies on every level. [close]Giveaway dates: Nov 04 - Nov 25, 201420 copies available, 232 people requestingCountries available: CA

Commended by judges of the prestigious Victorian Premier's Literary Awards, The Current is the story of a man's obsession with overcoming the forces of nature at all costs.
When the president of a sinking tropical island calls on the world's most ingenious entrepreneurs to help save his people, Peter Van Dooren answers the call. Van Dooren's wealth and prestige mean that his family wants for nothing - except a husband and a father. As an engineer, he believes his idea can not only save the island and its people's way of life. It could also change the idea of nations and borders. After all, changing the world is what Van Dooren really wants. But playing God may cost him his fortune and his own family.
While Van Dooren plots a world away, his wife, son and daughter sink deeper into their own personal abyss of retail therapy, amateur pornography and religious extremism. Everyone is adrift on the same tide of greed, lust and fear. This is the current that shapes the world. It always has; it always will. Is anyone strong enough to resist it?
Ironic and slyly, bleakly humorous, The Current shows us how our modern affluence buys us material comfort at the expense of a sense of purpose in our lives. It is a hopeful story about finding meaning in our relationships and strength through our community. It asks us to rekindle our relationship with nature.
The style of writing is literary (thoughtful but humorous), and will appeal to readers of Jonathan Franzen (particularly Freedom) and Michel Houellebecq (particularly Platform). Stylistically, The Current offers readers a back and forth split storyline and portent of danger comparable to Paul Thomas Anderson's film, Magnolia (1999). The Current is international in scope, the subject and themes are globally topical, encompassing climate change, family drama and refugees [close]

A heart-wrenching debut novel in the bestselling tradition of P.S. I Love You about a young woman with breast cancer who undertakes a mission to find a new wife for her husband before she passes away.
Twenty-seven-year-old Daisy already beat breast cancer three years ago. How can this be happening to her again?
On the eve of what was supposed to be a triumphant “Cancerversary” with her husband Jack to celebrate three years of being cancer-free, Daisy suffers a devastating blow: her doctor tells her that the cancer is back, but this time it’s an aggressive stage four diagnosis. She may have as few as four months left to live. Death is a frightening prospect—but not because she’s afraid for herself. She’s terrified of what will happen to her brilliant but otherwise charmingly helpless husband when she’s no longer there to take care of him. It’s this fear that keeps her up at night, until she stumbles on the solution: she has to find him another wife.
With a singular determination, Daisy scouts local parks and coffee shops and online dating sites looking for Jack’s perfect match. But the further she gets on her quest, the more she questions the sanity of her plan. As the thought of her husband with another woman becomes all too real, Daisy’s forced to decide what’s more important in the short amount of time she has left: her husband’s happiness—or her own?

It's the 1962 World Series. New York Yankees versus San Francisco Giants. Tropical storm Freda has delayed the crucial sixth game in San Francisco. It's dry as a bone in Modesto, California, where the Yankees have a farm team and a field named after Yankee owner Del Webb. A flurry of phone calls leads to a bus ride to the Central Valley town of 30,000. On October 14th, 1962, a crowd of more than 5,000 fills the small minor league park. This once-in-a-lifetime event features eight future Hall of Famers. Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford and Mickey Mantle from the Yankees; Orlando Cepeda, Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Juan Marichal and Gaylord Perry from the Giants.
One of the fans is thirteen-year-old Mikey Wright. Unlike the rest of the spectators, he's not there to see his idol and namesake, Mickey Mantle. He's there to convince the Commerce Comet to play catch with Mikey's father, who is dying of cancer.
Getaway Day chronicles Mikey's journey to save his father's life. And learn the meaning of his own.
Getaway Day will appeal to Baby Boomers, young adults, and anyone who loves baseball and remembers the joy and sorrow of adolescence.
What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others is, and remains, immortal.

Someone once said ‘Everyone has a book inside them’. In some cases (Katie Price – twelve books and counting), that’s exactly where the book should stay. But one thinks now is a good time to dust off the trusty quill pen, delve into the untouched archives of the monarchy and write one’s first publication.
This book is your complete survival guide to the British Isles, featuring information and advice that has been ceremonially handed down through the ranks and generations of monarchy.
One hopes this guidebook will become essential reading for tourists visiting Great Britain. Of course, one is aware of the dangers in making visitors too welcome in case they try and break into one’s abode. There is simply nothing worse than having a lost soul of society extracted from the grounds of a royal residence on the end of a bayonet.
Sincerely from your loving and ever graceful,

For most children these days, it would come as a great shock to know that before 1967, they could not marry a person of a race different from their own. That was the year that the Supreme Court issued its decision in Loving v. Virginia.
This is the story of one brave family: Mildred Loving, Richard Perry Loving, and their three children. It is the story of how Mildred and Richard fell in love, and got married in Washington, D.C. But when they moved back to their hometown in Virginia, they were arrested (in dramatic fashion) for violating that state's laws against interracial marriage. The Lovings refused to allow their children to get the message that their parents' love was wrong and so they fought the unfair law, taking their case all the way to the Supreme Court--and won!

Their journey toward one another is anything but simple, however. Following the death of his wife, Joanna, two years earlier, which he believes he caused, Will has devoted himself to his two young children.
As Will and Callie struggle with their own personal histories of love and loss, they must also navigate the complex emotions of Will’s children who still grieve for their mother. At the same time, they must struggle with Joanna s family, who refuse to accept that she is gone, and will do anything to avoid facing the truth.
Just as Callie and Will find happiness at last, they are forced apart when a scandal threatens to unravel their respective families. Putting their children above all else, Callie and Will separate — willingly but painfully — until an unexpected ally intervenes.
A Foolish Consistency explores the damage — emotional and otherwise — wrought by unacknowledged fear and grief, as well as the futility of trying to control the uncontrollable. Yet, it is also a passionate love story, and a statement on the power of hope, the importance of forgiveness, and, ultimately, the joy of redemption. [close]

This compelling true story is set around the Great War era and tells of cousins, born in the East End of London from the German émigré families, Demmel, Myer and Henseluck. The story begins in the emerging Edwardian society of 1909 and describes the hardships and ambitions-the life and loves of working class cousins, introducing among others, cousins Amalia and Agnes. This era is portrayed with sparkling authenticity, M A Lossl having extensively studied, for example, the Booth Poverty Maps of London and historic London weather information. The family saga is brought to life with photographs and original documents. Aspirational, the cousins Amalia and Agnes travel to follow love and hope of advancement. The stirrings of war are seen through the eyes of the families, who are living on different lines of the conflict - London, Hamburg and Versailles, at the commencement of hostiles. The internnment of Amalia Lossl’s family in Versailles, leads to her epic journey across France to hostile Germany, with her two small children. Families Demmel, Myer and Henseluck who are still in the East End, suffer the new phenomenon of German bombing raids. Meanwhile, Agnes Heitmann now living in Hamburg tells the story of life with her third child on the way; her husband’s letters arriving from the front line poignantly imply the horrors of war. At this time cousin George is serving in the Royal Navy and describes a fine adventure in Bermuda, while cousin Otto is facing the perils of German U boats, serving in the merchant navy. Brave and stoic souls are chased by the depravities of war and each cousin’s story reflects different sides of this momentous conflict. The story culminates as peace is achieved, but as the war death-note sounds, the heavy bells of grief toll alongside the joyous cascade of celebration. M A Lossl's next book 'Betweenwhiles' will chart the continuing family saga as the echoes of war effect the newly forged peace. Hope springs eternal despite tragic family circumstances. [close]

DESCRIPTION: By the confluence of the Susquehanna and Chenango rivers in New York's Southern Tier lies a verdant valley called the Triple Cities. The shoe factories that originally drew thousands of immigrants from across Europe have long moved on. What remains are the distinct ethnic flavors of a gritty community determined to overcome economic woes, adapt to the rapid changes in society and find true meaning in life. Consider these stories as pages ripped from a sketchbook. Some are quick studies; others are more detailed portraits inspired by observed characters, whispered gossip, overheard conversations and the local lore of the residents whose neighborhoods are framed by the gilded Orthodox Church domes that span this valley. You’ll find that each tale has its own tone: some are humorous or poignant, others are surprising and haunting.
