Description: #1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory joins two eminent historians to explore the extraordinary true stories of three women largely forgotten by history: Jacquetta, Duchess of Bedford; Elizabeth Woodville, queen of England; and Margaret Beaufort, the founder of the Tudor dynasty. In her essay on Jacquetta, Philippa Gregory uses original documents, archaeology, and histories of myth and witchcraft to create the first-ever biography of the young duchess who survived two reigns and two wars to become the first lady at two rival courts. David Baldwin, established authority on the Wars of the Roses, tells the story of Elizabeth Woodville, the first commoner to marry a king of England for love. And Michael Jones, fellow of the Royal Historical Society, writes of Margaret Beaufort, the almost-unknown matriarch of the House of Tudor. Beautifully illustrated throughout with rare portraits and source materials, The Women of the Cousins’ War offers fascinating insights into the inspirations behind Philippa Gregory’s fiction and will appeal to all with an interest in this epic period.

Description: From the “master storyteller”* of The Best of Everything comes a wise and wonderful novel of family loyalties (and disloyalties). Olivia is a twice-divorced New Yorker from a large extended family who grew up together on a magnificent summer estate, Mandelay. Although the cousins have scattered across the country, following sharply divergent paths, memories of their shared childhood continue to resonate, shaping their lives and decisions. When they’re together, they long for a vanished past, but alone Olivia must face a family legacy of lies, infidelity and tragedy. The Cousins is a sweeping saga that richly portrays the secrets we keep from family and from ourselves, from an author who voiced the experience of a generation.

Description: Six cousins from Kansas, Texas, and North Carolina spend part of their summer together with their grandparents in Aiken, South Carolina, and share some unexpected high adventure—from solving some mysterious local ghost legends to helping bring some bumbling criminals to justice. On the journey, they learn a lot about the local area, a charming Southern town packed with history; make new friends; meet some unforgettable characters; learn valuable life lessons; and build their Christian faith. Oh, and they have a lot of fun along the way! Many of their discoveries occur in Aiken’s Hitchcock Woods, the largest privately owned urban forest in the United States. It’s in the Woods, with its over 2100 acres of forestland and greater than seventy miles of sandy equestrian trails, that one day, they overhear a trio of thieves, who are hiding out from the authorities and planning their next crime. They realize the thieves are targeting an elderly lady who has become a friend of theirs, and when the local police don’t believe their story, they hatch their own plan to catch the “Banditos.” The cousins, who really don’t believe in ghosts—at least at first—learn of more than one ghost story stemming from The Battle of Aiken during the Civil War and Aiken’s “Winter Colony” days in the 19th century. What will they find out about these bumps and thumps in the night? Hang on to the edge of your seat!

Description: Two sensual tales of mismatchmaking, marriage, and mayhem! When it comes to matchmaking, will the third time be the charm? In 1802 London, Emma Fitzsimmons is determined to fend for herself in life as well as love in THE PROMISE OF A GENTLEMAN. Her banker has other plans for her future, though — marriage — as does her best friend, Christiana. Given the options, should Emma consider Todd, the tall broker who desperately wants a wife? Or the rake, Gregory, who isn't quite what he seems but seems to know what he wants? What of her best friend's brother, Thomas, who has hired her as an auditor for his import business but may have a different position in mind for her? With six characters looking for love — whether they know it or not — Emma's not the only target of matchmakers in this epic sensual tale of mismatchmaking at its finest. Their story continues later in 1802, when London throbs with great expectations and unlimited potential. Newlyweds embark on a wedding trip. An import business grows faster than its owner can manage. A friend accepts a new position when he learns his wife is expecting a child. And a man who has spent his life in service to others faces a new responsibility he'd determined to manage—the promise of an heir. As these four couples—made up of friends and family—face their futures, they'll discover romance and marriage are not always compatible when life interferes. But the adventures that await them make life worth living in THE PRIDE OF A GENTLEMAN.

Branna’s strength and selflessness hold together a close circle of friends and family—along with their horses and hawks and her beloved hound. But there’s a single missing link in the chain of her life: love… She had it once—for a moment—with Finbar Burke, but a shared future is forbidden by history and blood. Which is why Fin has spent his life traveling the world to fill the abyss left in him by Branna, focusing on work rather than passion. Branna and Fin’s relationship offers them both comfort and torment. And though they succumb to the heat between them, there can be no promises for tomorrow. A storm of shadows threatens everything that their circle holds dear. It will be Fin’s power, loyalty, and heart that will make all the difference in an age-old battle between the bonds that hold their friends together and the evil that has haunted their families for centuries.

From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations—and where her destiny awaits. Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nan’s directions, an unfailingly optimistic attitude, and an innate talent with horses. Not far from the luxurious castle where she is spending a week, she finds her cousins, Branna and Connor O’Dwyer. And since family is family, they invite her into their home and their lives. When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horsemen, he’s three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package. Iona realizes that here she can make a home for herself—and live her life as she wants, even if that means falling head over heels for Boyle. But nothing is as it seems. An ancient evil has wound its way around Iona’s family tree and must be defeated. Family and friends will fight with each other and for each other to keep the promise of hope—and love—alive… Don’t miss the other books in the Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy Shadow Spell Blood Magick

Her and Connor’s paths cross almost daily, as Connor takes tourists on hawk walks and Meara guides them on horseback across the lush countryside.

Plenty of women have found their way to Connor’s bed, but none to his heart until now. Frustratingly, Meara is okay with just the heat, afraid to lose herself—and their friendship—to something more. But soon, Connor will see the full force and fury of what runs in his blood.

Description: A lively and provocative double biography of first cousins Eleanor Roosevelt and Alice Roosevelt Longworth, two extraordinary women whose tangled lives provide a sweeping look at the twentieth century. When Theodore Roosevelt became president in 1901, his beautiful and flamboyant daughter was transformed into "Princess Alice," arguably the century's first global celebrity. Thirty-two years later, her first cousin Eleanor moved into the White House as First Lady. Born eight months and twenty blocks apart from each other in New York City, Eleanor and Alice spent a large part of their childhoods together and were far more alike than most historians acknowledge. But their politics and temperaments couldn't have been more distinct. Do-gooder Eleanor was committed to social justice but hated the limelight; acid-tongued Alice, who became the wife of philandering Republican congressman Nicholas Longworth, was an opponent of big government who gained notoriety for her cutting remarks (she famously quipped that dour President Coolidge “looked like he was weaned on a pickle”). While Eleanor revolutionized the role of First Lady with her outspoken passion for human rights, Alice made the most of her insider connections to influence politics, including doing as much to defeat the League of Nations as anyone in elective office. The cousins themselves liked to play up their oil-and-water relationship. “When I think of Frank and Eleanor in the White House I could grind my teeth to powder and blow them out my nose,” Alice once said. In the 1930s they even wrote opposing syndicated newspaper columns and embarked on competing nationwide speaking tours. Blood may be thicker than water, but when the family business is politics, winning trumps everything. Vivid, intimate, and stylishly written, Hissing Cousins finally sets this relationship center stage, revealing the contentious bond between two political trailblazers who short-circuited the rules of gender and power, each in her own way.

Fans of the hit thriller that started it all can watch the secrets of the Bayview Four be revealed in the One of Us is Lying TV series now streaming on NBC's Peacock! Come on, Bayview, you know you've missed this. A ton of copycat gossip apps have popped up since Simon died, but in the year since the Bayview four were cleared of his shocking death, no one's been able to fill the gossip void quite like he could. The problem is no one has the facts. Until now. This time it's not an app, though—it's a game. Truth or Dare. Phoebe's the first target. If you choose not to play, it's a truth. And hers is dark. Then comes Maeve and she should know better—always choose the dare. But by the time Knox is about to be tagged, things have gotten dangerous. The dares have become deadly, and if Maeve learned anything from Bronwyn last year, it's that they can't count on the police for help. Or protection. Simon's gone, but someone's determined to keep his legacy at Bayview High alive. And the rules have changed. “Few craft teen suspense like McManus.” --Entertainment Weekly “A thriller from one of the best writers in the YA mystery genre, One of Us Is Next delivers more shocking surprises and twists you won’t see coming.” --PASTE

Description: ONE OF THE WASHINGTON POST'S TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR One of Christian Science Monitor's BEST FICTION OF 2019 "Funny and tender but also provocative and wise. . . One of the most hopeful and insightful novels I've read in years." - Ron Charles, The Washington Post "Serious yet joyous comedy, reminiscent of the Pultizer-winning Less" - Out Magazine A novel about what happens when an already sprawling family hosts an even larger and more chaotic wedding: an entertaining story about family, culture, memory, and community. In the seemingly idyllic town of Rundle Junction, Bennie and Walter are preparing to host the wedding of their eldest daughter Clem. A marriage ceremony at their beloved, rambling home should be the happiest of occasions, but Walter and Bennie have a secret. A new community has moved to Rundle Junction, threatening the social order and forcing Bennie and Walter to confront uncomfortable truths about the lengths they would go to to maintain harmony. Meanwhile, Aunt Glad, the oldest member of the family, arrives for the wedding plagued by long-buried memories of a scarring event that occurred when she was a girl in Rundle Junction. As she uncovers details about her role in this event, the family begins to realize that Clem's wedding may not be exactly what it seemed. Clever, passionate, artistic Clem has her own agenda. What she doesn't know is that by the end, everyone will have roles to play in this richly imagined ceremony of familial connection-a brood of quirky relatives, effervescent college friends, ghosts emerging from the past, a determined little mouse, and even the very group of new neighbors whose presence has shaken Rundle Junction to its core. With Strangers and Cousins, Leah Hager Cohen delivers a story of pageantry and performance, hopefulness and growth, and introduces a winsome, unforgettable cast of characters whose lives are forever changed by events that unfold and reverberate across generations.

Description: “Fans of Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine will love The Cactus.” —Red magazine In this charming and poignant debut, one woman’s unconventional journey to finding love means learning to embrace the unexpected. For Susan Green, messy emotions don’t fit into the equation of her perfectly ordered life. She has a flat that is ideal for one, a job that suits her passion for logic, and an “interpersonal arrangement” that provides cultural and other, more intimate, benefits. But suddenly confronted with the loss of her mother and the news that she is about to become a mother herself, Susan’s greatest fear is realized. She is losing control. Enter Rob, the dubious but well-meaning friend of her indolent brother. As Susan’s due date draws near and her dismantled world falls further into a tailspin, Susan finds an unlikely ally in Rob. She might have a chance at finding real love and learning to love herself, if only she can figure out how to let go.

Description: Denver-based detective C. J. Floyd discovers a government conspiracy when a Vietnam vet who went missing in action reappears after thirty-four years. For decades, Carmen Nguyen, an Amerasian emergency-room doctor in a Denver hospital, thought her father, Langston Blue, was dead after vanishing in Vietnam. Now she knows he’s alive, and she’s hired bail bondsman C. J. Floyd to find him. But what C. J. and his assistant, former Marine intelligence sergeant Flora Jean Benson, discover is nothing short of criminal. An elite assassin, Langston was witness to a clandestine US-sanctioned war atrocity so dishonorable that he abandoned the rogue operation and went running for his life. Ever since, he’s been MIA, considered an expendable threat to military top brass. Resurfacing in Denver from self-imposed exile in the backwoods of West Virginia, he plans to locate the daughter he never knew and expose a truth more horrifying than anyone could imagine. But a Colorado congressman poised to capture a seat in the US Senate also knows what happened on that mission in the jungles of Southeast Asia—and he has a lot to lose. In resurrecting Langston’s past, C. J., Carmen, and Flora are caught in a treacherous plot that leads to the highest levels of government, where the most powerful and corrupt players in the country are still hiding from the ghosts of war—and will do anything it takes to make sure their secrets die with Langston Blue. Bestselling author Robert Greer has been hailed as a “taut, powerful writer” (The Plain Dealer). Fans of hardboiled detective stories or the novels of Walter Mosley will enjoy his series featuring a tough African American sleuth in the modern-day West. Resurrecting Langston Blue is the 4th book in the C. J. Floyd Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

Description: An updated edition with completely new chapters of the most accessible and compelling history of the cinema yet published, and complements Mark Cousins' fascinating 15-hour film documentary The Story of Film: An Odyssey. Filmmaker and author Mark Cousins shows how filmmakers are influenced both by the historical events of their times, and by each other. He demonstrates, for example, how Douglas Sirk s Hollywood melodramas of the 1950s influenced Rainer Werner Fassbinder s despairing visions of 1970s Germany; and how George Lucas Star Wars epics grew out of Akira Kurosawa s The Hidden Fortress. The Story of Film is divided into three main epochs: Silent (1885 1928), Sound (1928 1990) and Digital (1990 Present). Films are discussed within chapters reflecting both the stylistic concerns of the film-makers and the political and social themes of the time. This edition includes new text that encompasses the further-reaching scope of world cinema today, and the huge leaps in technology that have changed cinema screens forever. Film is an international medium, so as well as covering the great American films and film-makers, The Story of Film

Description: DISCOVER THE FOUNDERS' SECRETS AND HOW THEY TURNED THE BUSINESS INTO THE LARGEST ONLINE SPORTS RETAILER IN THE WORLD. Those who enjoy a good story are sure to be captivated by this one, which tells the tale of two Armenian cousins, Marcio Kumruian and Hagop Chabab, who opened a shoe store on Maria Antonia Street in downtown São Paulo in 2000 and turned it into the largest online sports retailer in the world. Today, Netshoes generates an annual turnover of more than BR$2 billion and employees over two thousand members of staff. Netshoes pioneered the online sale of shoes in Brazil and has served as an exemplar for aspiring online retailers ever since. Their rise to the top, however, was anything but plain sailing. The book tells how the company migrated from a traditional retail business model to e-commerce and charts the successive challenges that the cousins had to overcome — from negotiating the purchase of an e-commerce platform with Americans, despite neither of them speaking English at the time, to the setting up of their first automated distribution center. Here you will also learn about some of the entrepreneurs' mishaps, from the bankruptcy of their shopping mall store to the unsuccessful experience of Sambashoes, the company's first attempt to conquer international markets (today, Netshoes operates in Argentina and Mexico). The influence of capital investment funds and the strict professionalization that followed is also central to this intriguing story of prosperity and progress. The fierce competition from outfits backed by private investment houses, the endeavor to make the business profitable, and a succession of organizational restructures designed to protect their market leadership all make the story of Netshoes a truly unique case in the realm of Brazilian e-commerce. It is a story of success sure to inspire many to roll up their sleeves and embark into the world of entrepreneurship.

Description: Renowned and respected family psychologist John Rosemond blames child-centered parenting books from recent decades for creating a generation of dependent, often defiant children. He sets the record straight in The New Six-Point Plan for Raising Happy, Healthy Children, an updated version of his highly successful book published more than fifteen years ago. Booms in technology and mass media have created significant changes in society in the last two decades. The text in this revised book has been thoroughly updated to reflect today's society, yet the foundation of Rosemond's timeless and effective approach remains constant. He encourages families to return to tried-and-true, fundamental parenting truths that people did naturally before the "new science of parenting": * Parents aren't their children's friends; they are their leaders. * Parents are at the center of a family-not kids. * Your marriage must come before your children. Each chapter includes easy-to-relate-to questions from parents, which Rosemond answers with both common sense and a sense of humor. For families feeling overwhelmed by competing advice about parenting, this book will ground them with logical, proven approaches to the most significant challenges parents face today. From issues such as self-esteem and discipline to television and chores, this straightforward guidance will facilitate a return to parent-centered families where children are raised into responsible adults.

Through his ingenuity and the help of an Aleut Shaman, he foils a Japanese plot to terrorize the Aleutians Islands and the U. S. West Coast and force America into an early peace treaty which would give Japan control of most of the Pacific and Indonesia. Matt also discovers that the Japanese have a number of Aleut women captives on the island, whom they plan to kill when they leave Luta Island. He realizes that he has no choice but to help them escape their Japanese captors.

When Jenson Thorbisher-Freep announces an amateur theatrical contest, the women in the Grub-and-Stake gardening club race to join in. They enlist Osbert Monk as their playwright—not only is he married to their club leader Dittany Monk, but he’s famous the world over as Lex Laramie, bestselling novelist of Westerns. Taking the legend of Dangerous Dan McGrew as his inspiration, Osbert delivers a rough draft faster than the Pony Express. Now all the Grub-and-Stakers have to do is cast it. To play McGrew, Dittany picks town cad Andrew McNaster, who has recently improved his manners in an attempt to woo Osbert’s aunt, Arethusa. The gunslinger’s performance gets a bit too real on opening night, though, when his prop bullets are replaced with real ones, and claim the toe of a fellow thespian. Is McNaster as nice as he pretends to be? Or has he taken his part too close to heart, and decided to become very dangerous indeed?

Description: A house party turns a millionaire’s hacienda hideaway into a crime scene in this classic detective novel from an Edgar Award–winning Grand Master. The Godfrey family is vacationing among the picturesque rocky cliffs of the North Atlantic seaboard, expecting peace, quiet, and, perhaps, a bit of golf or tennis. But one dusky evening in an isolated spot on the grounds of Spanish Cape, Rosa and her uncle David get into an argument about her secretive romance with one of their guests, the roguish John Marco, a handsome cad with a yellow roadster and no visible source of income. That’s when a towering one-eyed man with a .38 revolver emerges from the twilight. When renowned sleuth Ellery Queen arrives the next day from New York City, looking forward to a summer getaway on the coast, he realizes his trip will be no walk on the beach. Rescuing Rosa, he discovers her captor mistook David for John and struck the former down instead. But Ellery has more work to do when Rosa’s shady sweetheart is found stone dead and stark naked . . . aside from a black fedora and a theatrical-looking opera cloak. There are plenty of guests and members of the household who might have wanted John dead, but who did it—and what in the world happened to the victim’s clothes? In this iconic series inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and praised by none other than Agatha Christie, carefully planted clues, logical deduction, and an atmospheric 1930s setting combine for an irresistibly enjoyable read for anyone who loves a murderous puzzle.
