NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Two sisters must learn from each other’s strengths and trust in the redeeming power of love in a touching new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber. The Lakey sisters are perfect opposites. After their mother died and their father was lost in grief, Willa had no choice but to raise her sister, Harper, and their brother, Lucas. Then, as an adult, she put her own life on hold to nurse Harper through a terrifying illness. Now that Harper is better and the sisters are living as roommates, Willa has realized her dream of running her own bakery and coffee shop, bringing her special brand of caretaking to the whole Oceanside community. Harper, on the other hand, is always on the go. Overcoming a terrible illness has given her a new lease on life, and she does not intend to waste it. When Harper announces her plan to summit Mount Rainier, Willa fears she may be pushing herself too far. Harper, for her part, urges Willa to stop worrying and do something outside of her comfort zone—like taking a chance on love with a handsome new customer. Sean O’Malley is as charming as he is intriguing—a freelance photographer whose assignments take him to the ends of the earth. Soon Willa’s falling for him in a way that is both exciting and terrifying. But life has taught Willa to hedge her bets, and she wonders whether the potential heartache is worth the risk. Life has more challenges in store for them all. But both sisters will discover that even in the darkest moments, family is everything.

It was a cold January afternoon when Buddy and Olivia arrived at Sea Island. They came from different corners of the state to a Georgia Association of Realtors' convention, a black tie affair that attracted nearly six hundred participants. Buddy was divorced and Olivia was a widow. Olivia smiled as she watched Buddy flirt with the young lady at the ticket counter. Little did she know his attention would become focused on her later in the evening. Whether the meeting came by chance or by destiny, the two lonely souls needed "A Walk On The Beach". Soothing music by the band after dinner was an invitation to dance. The ballroom was packed. Buddy was in the hunt. He circled the room three times leaving no stone unturned. Near the end of the third lap, he was stopped dead in his tracks. There she sat, wearing a low-cut sequined blouse, and the baby blues and the smile and the silky blond hair sent tremors through his heart. "Her beauty radiated like a beacon from a lighthouse!" It would be their first dance of many over the next few years, and at one point they danced alone to cheers from the crowd. The courtship blossomed after that first meeting, but there were challenges. Olivia lived on Tybee Island and Buddy lived in Moultrie, some four and a half hours away. Buddy did most of the driving, of course, for the chase was on. Tybee became their playground with long walks on the beach, dinner parties and romantic sunsets. Share the intimacy, humor and trials of this true love story as it unfolds through their e-mails. Feel the warmth and passion of the relationship as two adults strive to give love a second chance.

From the author of the bestselling A Year By the Sea, comes the inspiring story about how her and Joan Erikson's friendship pushed them to remember the importance of transformation and sustained them through their unique challenges. Shortly after arriving on Cape Cod to spend a year by herself, Joan Anderson’s chance encounter with a wise and astonishing woman helped her usher in the self-discoveries that led to her ongoing renewal. First glimpsed as a slender figure on a fogged-in beach, Joan Erikson was not only a friend and confidante when she was most needed, but also a guide as Anderson stretched and grew into her unfinished self. Joan Erikson was perhaps best known for her collaboration with her husband, Erik, a pioneering psychoanalyst and noted author. After Erik’s death, she wrote several books extending their theory of the stages of life to reflect her understanding of aging as she neared ninety-five. But her wisdom was best taught through their friendship; as she sat with Anderson, weaving tapestries of their lives with brightly colored yarn while exploring the strength gathered from their accumulated experiences, Joan Erikson’s lessons took shape on their small cardboard looms as well as in her friend’s revitalized life. In writing about their extraordinary friendship, Anderson reveals a need she didn’t know she had: for a mentor to help navigate the transitions she faced as she grew beyond middle age. And when Joan Erikson had to face her husband’s death and the growing limitations of her own body, Anderson was able to give back some of the wisdom she had gleaned. To this poignant, joyful account, Joan Anderson brings the candor and sensitivity that have made her an acclaimed speaker and writer on midlife and its possibilities. A Walk on the Beach is an experience to savor and treasure, a glimpse of the exuberant spirit that can be sustained and passed on in all our friendships.

College dropout Scott Sanderson sits in a rural Florida holding cell in the middle of the night, awaiting a hearing the following morning. He has ventured from Los Angeles on his motorcycle to see the country before the responsibilities of post-college adulthood ensnare him. Ignoring his draft status, the journey takes him first to Mardi Gras, then to Florida, where his arrest abruptly curtails the adventure. Faced with jail time, he reluctantly follows the judge's orders and joins the navy. This solidifies his notion that life is stacked against him and that the generation in charge has rigged the world in its favor. In his new situation, Scott deals with many of the issues he left behind: his relationship with his father and his family, his commitment to the service, his relationships with women, and his future. Interwoven with historic events of the era and the lives of his peers both at home and in the navy, A Walk-on Part in the War follows Scott on his quest to find direction in a fractured and confused America. A modern-day odyssey, this novel captures the waning optimism and the rapid pace of individual and social change that overtook mid-1970s America.

French Phrases Vol.1: English & French THIS EDITION: French Phrases seeks to bridge the gap between knowing individual words and knowing how to create or understand sentences. Sentences are phrases or a combination of phrases, and phrases are a combination of words. The simplest phrases are the simplest ways of combining words. Exposure to a wide variety of phrases, especially in increasing complexity, provides the basis for obtaining a solid grasp of a new language. The reason being, phrases can be combined with other phrases to create endless possibilities in language. French Phrases contains a wide variety of phrases, but it also demonstrates how phrases can increase in complexity – through the inclusion of individual words or other phrases. The reader can choose between four formats: Section 1: English to French Section 2: French to English Section 3: English Section 4: French The text can be used to obtain a fundamental grasp of French grammar. An understanding of the rules that underpin the way words combine into phrases, or phrases combine into sentences, allows the language learner to expand their capacity exponentially simply by increasing vocabulary. With this in mind, the text includes an introductory section summarising the important aspects of French grammar. The dual-language text has been arranged for quick and easy cross-referencing. The text can be used on its own. However, the content is ideal for reinforcing and expanding on a basic grasp of the language. With an increasingly robust grasp of the language, the language learner can easily and fruitfully move on to more advanced bilingual text — like in 2Language Books editions —, or suitable French only text: a simple novel, a French news website, etc. Many basic language books offer some form of audio support. Internet services — primarily news based radio stations — offer podcasts. Audio from television is an additional resource, and can be formatted for use on various digital platforms. However, if audio is an important component of your interest in languages, electronic devices that support quality text-to-speech (TTS) will likely be appealing. With a library card, TTS technology (in a device that supports the relevant content), and the above mentioned resources (as digital content), an entire language learning system is available for not much more than a cup of coffee! There is no substantial financial outlay to get you started. Furthermore, there are no additional ongoing fees (and updates), and there are no expiry dates on ‘premium’ content and resources.
