She was all he had, an oasis of acceptance in this foreign, brutal land. He was her only hope of escaping an unwanted marriage. Standing on the banks of the James River, Rosetta listens to an impossible story from an impossible source. Ghosts aren’t real. Everyone knows that. And she’s not some psychic weirdo. But the ethereal voice persists, and one by one she discovers historical proof to support his existence and his claims. All he wants, he says, is to find his wife. They were separated by death four hundred years ago. Buried apart. He cannot stand the thought that his wife would spend eternity believing he abandoned her. Abandonment is a bitter and personal ache in Ro’s life. Four years ago her father walked out, never to be heard from again. Now she’s willing to do anything to erase that pain for someone else. But in Jamestown, Virginia, where archeologists have been unearthing mysteries for decades, how can a sixteen-year-old hope to find what trained professionals have not? Without revealing her source, Ro seeks help from her crush, Cade. An up-and-coming archeologist, Cade’s assistance is invaluable. But as she learns more about her ghost and his past, Ro uncovers secrets that if revealed could tear the ancient lovers apart forever. Yet her silence will be seen by Cade as a betrayal. One couple will win and one couple will lose if she succeeds in Finding Beth.

The author of Meet Me for Murder shares the true crime story of a LA prosecutor working to prove a man guilty of murder—without a body. No evidence . . . On April 22, 1991, three young children waited for their mother, Ann Racz, to return with a takeout dinner. Instead, their father showed up with a small bag of cold French fries and said their mother had gone away. Ann’s children didn't believe it. Neither did her friends. And neither did the police. But there was zero evidence that anything had happened to Ann. No body . . . Los Angeles detectives dug furiously into the case, grilling John Racz and searching for clues. But without a body, the investigation stalled, and three children grew up wondering what had happened to their loving mother—and if their father had killed her. And a killer in plain sight . . . Fourteen years later, a brilliant female prosecutor defied the legal establishment and delved into the cold case, uncovering shocking information about Ann and her relationship with John. Suddenly, a crusading prosecutor was up against the most difficult kind of murder case of all: to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that John Racz had murdered his wife—even though her body was never found . . . With sixteen pages of photos

They needed an escape plan! After losing their business, facing bankruptcy and foreclosure, then being frightened by a vision of their future, in a ratty trailer park watching Little House On The Prairie reruns, Lollie Hoxie hatches an idea—but she doesn’t share it with her husband right away. In this, her first memoir, Hoxie explains with honest humor what happens next when they take an exploratory vacation to Ecuador, return home to sell everything they own, rent their house, and go back to permanently relocate in the little city of Gualaceo. Her resulting adventure involves the trials and tribulations of living with people who speak no English, negotiating precarious bus rides in the country, and traveling through a strange little town with dirt roads and a drunken immigration official, to name a few. There are side trips to Peru lasting longer than planned with terrific consequences and delicious calamities along the way. Finding Joy in Ecuador is filled with Hoxie’s sarcastic humor, contrasted with moments of self-reflection that, at times, take her confidence to the woodshed and threaten to end her marriage. Finding Joy in Ecuador lovingly describes an adventure that taught this couple about themselves and their love for each other. It also revealed to them an aspect of their American culture: the game of accumulating stuff. And, then, how remarkably fun it was for them to live without it! This memoir is a rollercoaster ride into retirement overseas; a fun and exhilarating, sometimes scary adventure of the way it really is. For people who want to get a true glimpse of daily life in this foreign country, it’s a rare find!

Louisa May Alcott (1832 – 1888) was an American novelist best known as author of the novel Little Women, Good Wives and the sequels Little Men and Jo's Boys. The first part of Little Women: or Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy (1868), is a semi-autobiographical account of her childhood with her sisters in Concord, Massachusetts. Part two, or Part Second, also known as Good Wives (1869), followed the March sisters into adulthood and their respective marriages. Little Men (1871) detailed Jo's life at the Plumfield School that she founded with her husband Professor Bhaer at the conclusion of Part Two of Little Women. And Jo's Boys (1886) completed the "March Family Saga". Alcott made women's rights integral to her stories, and her fiction became her "most important feminist contribution" — even considering all the efforts Alcott made to help facilitate women's rights during her lifetime.

Did you ever think of going on a vacation with no idea of where you were going or how long you’d be away—not preparing, not packing, not bringing anything with you? Then, while you’re on this vacation, you don’t know where you are, you’re not sure how you got there, you can’t find a path to follow, and the route ahead is pure fog. You have no idea of where you’re headed, and all you know is that you need to take one step after another just to keep on going. In Sickness and in Health documents such a journey, the author’s personal journey, taken from his wife’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis until her death. As the disease progressed, the realities of daily life changed as Alzheimer’s stole his wife’s ability to function, her ability to communicate, her personality, and much more. But, while much of the focus is on Beth’s deteriorating condition, this memoir also offers insight into the toll that Alzheimer’s and, by extension, any terminal illness, takes on caregivers and survivors. The emotional roller coaster can be dramatic and can persist well past the death of the patient. But readers are also offered some practical advice about housekeeping items—finances, legal affairs, and considerations around care—each of which must be thought through for both the short and long term. Written from the heart, In Sickness and in Health offers solace to those who have lost someone to Alzheimer’s or other terminal illnesses and assures them that they can get through this most painful time in their lives. It offers a glimpse into a world that we all too often go out of our way to avoid—and some suggestion for navigating it with a little less bewilderment when we can evade it no longer.
