Book Summary:

Nestled in the Chesapeake Bay, Brodie Island is charming, remote, and slow to change. For three hundred years, Abby Brodie’s farming family has prospered there. Now, years after leaving to make her way on her own terms, Abby is coming home to see her ailing grandmother, with her teenage daughter and a wealth of memories in tow. Yet as family members gather at the old farmhouse, Abby realizes this visit offers more than a chance to say goodbye. After decades of feeling she was a disappointment as a daughter, Abby is beginning to see that her mother, too, has struggled to feel a sense of belonging within the Brodie family. Celeste, Abby’s self-centered sister, is far from the successful actress she pretends to be, and needs help that only Abby and their half-brother, Joseph, can give. But most surprising of all is the secret that Grandmother Brodie has been carrying—one that will make each woman question her identity and the sacrifices she’s willing to make to gain acceptance. With her trademark emotional honesty and insight, Colleen Faulkner lays bare the challenges at the heart of a family—learning how to forgive, connect, and let ourselves be truly known at last. Praise for the novels of Colleen Faulkner AS CLOSE AS SISTERS “As Close as Sisters shares the emotions of four very different women and their personal journeys through heartbreak, hope, and joy. Faulkner addresses serious topics that will evoke both tears and laughter while leaving readers contemplating the unbreakable bonds of friendship.” --Booklist “Readers of women’s fiction and in women’s book groups will be drawn to Faulkner’s new novel. Pour a glass of pinot grigio, grab a box of tissues, and savor the ride.” –Library Journal JUST LIKE OTHER DAUGHTERS “This deeply moving story of maternal love and renewal will touch your heart. It’s a celebration of the capacity of the human heart to heal itself and embrace change, beautifully written with rare insight.” —Susan Wiggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author “Be prepared to weep tears of sorrow as well as tears of joy. This is a novel you won’t soon forget.” —Holly Chamberlin, author of Summer with my Sisters “So real, so honest...I laughed, I hoped, I cried. It’s that good.” —Cathy Lamb, author of My Very Best Friend

Book Summary:

Enjoy again two classic romances to warm your heart this winter season, only from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber. YOURS AND MINE Marriage is an experience that single mom Joanna Parsons doesn’t plan to repeat, no matter what her eleven-year-old daughter thinks. Tanner Lund feels the same way. Like Joanna, he got divorced after a short, disastrous marriage. And like her, he’s raising his eleven-year-old daughter alone. But the girls have other plans in mind—and it involves the best friends becoming sisters. Both Tanner and Joanna are determined to avoid marriage, yet there’s no resisting their growing attraction… HERE COMES TROUBLE Maryanne Simpson is working hard to make it as a journalist; it’s not her fault that her father happens to own the newspaper! After rival columnist Nolan Adams writes an unflattering piece about her, she’s furious. But Maryanne decides the tough, streetwise newsman is right about one thing: her life has been too easy. So she quits her job, leaves her luxury apartment and swears not to touch her trust fund. She needs to prove to Nolan—and to herself—that she’s got what it takes to make it on her own. She wants Nolan’s respect…and maybe more. When they end up as neighbors, Maryann discovers that she can’t resist Nolan’s gruff charm, and although he doesn’t seem to be an appropriate match for a socialite, Maryanne has other ideas!

Book Summary:

When a teacher asks the children in her class to think about what makes their families special, the answers are all different in many ways — but the same in the one way that matters most of all. One child is worried that her family is just too different to explain, but listens as her classmates talk about what makes their families special. One is raised by a grandmother, and another has two dads. One has many stepsiblings, and another has a new baby in the family. As her classmates describe who they live with and who loves them — family of every shape, size and every kind of relation — the child realizes that as long as her family is full of caring people, it is special. A warm and whimsical look at many types of families, written by award-winning author Sara O’Leary, with quirky and sweet illustrations by Qin Leng.
