Takin…more[close] Former prosecutor Timothy Burke recounts the separate tragedies that entwine three very different women in his true-crime drama The Bird’s Song. Taking place amid the racially tense backdrop of 1980s Boston, these tragic cases weave together to form a tale of lost justice, faith, love, and redemption. Three women come together after each experiencing unspeakable horror: the rape victim whose rapist has eluded capture, the widow whose husband was brutally murdered by a drug dealer who is later acquitted, and the mother whose young son dies inexplicably at a Boston hospital. All three are forced to adjust to a radically new life, each one relying on Burke as their lawyer and case advocate in order to bring them some measure of justice. As these women’s stories slowly unfold, however, it becomes clear to the reader that it is Burke himself whose life is forever changed. With the author’s assured hand and detailed prose, each woman’s tumultuous journey from unbearable loss to the tentative reemergence of faith in both their lives and in the justice system comes to life. Centered on the story of Ruth, an African American single mother, The Bird’s Song chronicles not only these women’s strength, but also Burke’s own struggle to find humanity within a violent and often inscrutable world. Alternately dark and uplifting, Burke’s latest drama is a carefully crafted tale that unflinchingly reveals the cruel and brutal nature of violent crimes in one of the United States’ most celebrated cities. As the author struggles with his faith in God amid the horrific crimes he handles on a daily basis, Burke learns from those who have been wounded the most that nothing in life is random and that faith, love, and justice can ultimately prevail. As he did in his previous book, The Paradiso Files: Boston’s Unknown Serial Killer, Burke masterfully blends high tension courtroom drama with the perseverance of the human spirit. The Bird’s Song is a provocative glimpse into the emotional ravages that violence and loss leave behind.

"Brilliantly funny but also filled with wonderful insight. I loved this book." review by 'Fictions' on Amazon.
Head for the Edge, Keep Walking welcomes you in to the eccentric world of Jill Beech, whose friends are finally getting their lives together while hers is falling apart. Adrift at thirty-four, no-one does 'lost' quite like Jill. Wry, witty, resilient but bewildered, she's left asking, 'What does it take to stay sane in this life? And why does it look easier for everyone else?'
Her nine-year relationship is over. She swaps one so-so job for another. She gets drunk with off-beat friends and internet dates with mixed results... Then life is flipped on its head by some shocking news.
In this exploration of contemporary friendships and relationships, Jill will penetrate your brain till you're analysing your own life choices through her lens! Jill's distinctive, savagely honest voice delivers sentences you'll want to read and re-read for their lyrical, original language and ringing clarity.
When events take Jill to the edge - will tip herself over or turn things around and keep walking?
See author's website for more information, including UK press reviews.
What readers have said online:
"Really enjoyed this book. Felt involved from page 1. Jill Beech is so believable. Thoroughly recommend this debut and looking forward more from Kate Tough."
"This novel did what all the best books do for this reader - made him think about and evaluate choices and decisions he'd made in his own life - and it does so in great style; emphatic and humane. Jill Beech makes her wrong-footed and, occasionally wrong-headed, way across her thirtysomething life's cobblestones, stumbling over the cracks, but always righting herself again with a rare humour and reminding herself of the important things she has: friends, family and the love that binds them all, despite their frequent failings."
"There's a huge amount to enjoy in this sparkling debut, and it makes Kate Tough a novelist to pay close attention to in the future...Highly recommended."

Except, the insanely jealous, Loni wants to come to the office and scope out the women that Banyon works with at Dewey & Beatem in Chicago. The entire Patel clan has gone to India to visit with relatives. Previne stays behind, at Banyon's request to inspect an archeological dig site in Las Vegas,. Then the unthinkable happens. There is an explosion at the dig site and Previne is left clinging to life. Her doctors say that she will never recover and they will turn off her life support equipment in three days. Banyon soon discovers that the explosion is no accident and is part of a heinous plot by someone who is just drumming up business. The bomb was purposely planted to sensationalize the atrocities committed by the Japanese, during World War II at a secret facility called Unit 731. When Banyon attempts to notify the Patel clan of Previne's peril, he finds that they are on a remote mountainside in the Himalayas and in serious jeopardy themselves. They must defend their long lost Aunt from a murderous lawyer. They may not get back to Las Vegas in time to say goodbye to their sister. In fact, they may not even survive. He resolves to save Previne and put a stop to the monstrous plot at the same time. Wolf, of course, agrees to help. He enlists help from people at Dewey & Beatem and along with Loni begins to unravel the plot. The plan to save Previne includes stealing something from Area 51, bringing down a major mobster in Mumbai, India and his worldwide organization. It also involves stopping additional bomb threats, dealing with the San Francisco branch of the Tong, and uncovering additional documents concerning Unit 731 from a gravesite in Japan. All must be done in less than three days, or Previne will die. [close]View Details »Giveaway dates: Sep 07 - Oct 07, 20143 copies available, 110 people requestingCountries available: US

There are two activities in life that are essential to one’s happiness. The first is to have one’s day (to explore, engage and enjoy life), and the second is to say one’s say (to say the words to oneself and/or to others that one needs to say).
“An Uncommon Vocabulary” is an exercise in saying one’s say. Simply put, it is an A to Z book of common words and phrases that are described in a manner better suited to them in the
opinion of the author.
The concepts described herein are working definitions, definitions that can be brought to mind to facilitate one’s thinking and actions within a given set of circumstances.
When a working definition is properly occasioned (brought to mind at the appropriate time and in the appropriate circumstances), advantageous effects flow from it.
In this way, one’s personal narrative is made richer and more rewarding, and one becomes more coherent and positive in dealing with everyday events.

A beautiful literary tale about an aspiring actress who seizes Darwin's research and tries to make a name for herself to win a scientific prize.
Galápagos Regained centers on the fictional Chloe Bathurst, an unemployed Victorian actress who finds work on Charles Darwin’s estate, nurturing the strange birds, exotic lizards, and giant tortoises he brought back from his trip around the world. When Chloe gets wind of the Great God Contest, sponsored by the Percy Bysshe Shelley Society—£10,000 to the first petitioner who can prove or disprove the existence of a Supreme Being—she decides that Mr. Darwin’s materialist theory of speciation might just turn the trick. (If Nature gave God nothing to do, maybe He was never around in the first place.) Before she knows it, her ambitions send her off on a wild adventure—a voyage by brigantine to Brazil, a steamboat trip up the Amazon, a hot-air balloon flight across the Andes—bound for the Galápagos archipelago, where she intends to collect the live specimens through which she might demonstrate evolutionary theory to the contest judges.

When Maximillian Wilder hides his noble identity and joins the notorious body snatchers known as the London Supply Company, the last thing on his mind is love. He’s worried about Madeline, his vanished half sister, who was last seen in the company of Jack Hurtsill, the gang’s conscienceless leader. Raiding graveyards, stealing corpses, and selling them to medical colleges as dissection material is dirty work, but Max knows he must gain Jack’s trust. He’s determined to find out what happened to Madeline—and to bring Jack to justice if she was murdered for the coin her body could earn.
Beautiful, spirited Abigail Hale, daughter of the surgeon at Aldersgate School of Medicine, detests the challenging, hard-bargaining Max almost as much as Jack. But she must procure the necessary specimens if she is to save the college and her father’s career. She believes she is going to be successful—until Jack double-crosses her. Then she’s swept into a plot of danger and intrigue, one where Max must intervene to protect her, no matter the risk to his plan…or his heart.

But when Joost Steinmann passes away unexpectedly one September night, his three daughters must learn to fend for themselves. While feisty Johanna takes a practical approach to looking for work, Ruth follows her heart, aiming to catch the eye of a handsome young villager. But it is dreamy, quiet Marie who has always been the most captivated by the magic—and sparkling possibilities—of the craft of glassblowing. As the spirited sisters work together to forge a brighter future for themselves on their own terms, they learn not only how to thrive in a man’s world, but how to remain true to themselves—and their hearts—in the process.

And then one day, everything changed.View Details »
I woke up.
Different. Independent. Free from all the rules that had defined my life.
Only I have no idea how I got to where I am. I have no memory of the last two years. I don’t remember graduating college, and I certainly don’t remember Adam–the boyfriend I live with.
He loves me. And I love him. At least that’s what everyone says. But when my memories return to me as dreams, I see a different version of the man everyone claims is perfect for me.
He terrifies me. He makes my heart race and he makes me feel things I’ve never felt before.
Do I want to welcome the emotional chaos that his piercing brown eyes and messy black hair causes every time I get a glimpse of him? Or should I run back to the perfectly manicured life that used to be mine?
