Fifteen-year-old Ruby Alice's life is smashed to pieces when her father dies. Her already tumultuous relationship with her mother, Helen, becomes even more stressed when Ruby Alice begins asking questions about the accident that took her father's life. Her questions are met with anger and veiled language, leading Ruby Alice to believe that her mother is keeping a secret about the circumstances surrounding her fathers death. Months pass, while confused and helpless, Ruby watches her mother unravel and their money run out. Desperate, Helen reluctantly reaches out to her her mother, Dorothy, whom she's successfully avoided for years. Suddenly, Ruby Alice finds herself in rural Missouri moving in with an eccentric grandmother she's never met. She's still acquainting herself with life in the country when Grandma Dorothy tells her about her great grandfather, Thomas Irl, the man who built the three-story farmhouse that was now her new home. Dorothy relayed that he was a secretive man and never allowed anyone into the attic. So, when she offered to take Ruby Alice up to look for dusty treasures, Ruby Alice was all in. While scooching past stacks of boxes and peeking into drawers of antique furniture, a clumsy mistake leads to the discovering of an old scrap of paper with strange writing. A treasure map? This is the spark that sets Ruby Alice on the hunt for more clues. Along the way she gets help from a new friend, Ansel, who helps her decipher what great grandpa T.I. has left behind. Her search takes on sudden urgency when she overhears that long unpaid debts threaten to take away her new home. On the cusp of making a great discovery, the truth from her mother about her father's death sends her into an emotional spiral causing her to question her perception of her father. Is her mother right? Are her memories of her father false? Is she just chasing a childish fantasy? Though she won't see it with clarity until years later, Ruby Alice discovers that words and actions have consequences and people aren't always who they seem to be in that one treasured summer.

A bold new history of the discovery of King Tut and the seismic impact it left on modern society. When it was discovered in 1922, in an Egypt newly independent of the British Empire, the 3,300-year-old tomb of Tutankhamun sent shockwaves around the world. The boy-king became a household name overnight and kickstarted an international obsession that continues to this day. From pop culture and politics to tourism and the heritage industry, it’s impossible to imagine the past century without the discovery of Tutankhamun – yet so much of the story remains untold. In Treasured, Christina Riggs weaves compelling historical analysis with tales of lives touched, or changed forever, by an encounter with the boy-king. Who remembers that Jacqueline Kennedy first welcomed the young pharaoh to America? That a Tutankhamun revival in the 1960s helped save the ancient temples of Egyptian Nubia? Or that the British Museum’s landmark Tutankhamun exhibition in 1972 remains its most successful ever? But not everything about ‘King Tut’ glitters: tours of his treasures in the 1970s were linked to Big Oil, his mummified remains have been exploited in the name of science, and accounts of his tomb’s discovery exclude Egyptian archaeologists. Treasured offers a bold new history of the young pharaoh who has as much to tell us about our world as his own.

Love is in the cards for a young Scottish heiress in the first book of a delicious new trilogy of historical romances, Secrets of the Loch, from New York Times bestselling author Candace Camp. A family legend of hidden treasure mingles with the mist over the shores of Loch Baille… But it’s not the cache of gold dating back to Culloden that Jack Kensington claims when he arrives in the Highlands; it’s the house he won in a London card game from a luckless Scotsman. Stunned to learn that her wastrel brother wagered their family estate, Isobel Rose must find a way to save her home and the people she loves…even if it means accepting a loveless marriage. Or perhaps not so loveless? Isobel unlocks the secrets of desire in the arms of the mysterious and handsome Englishman, but a series of “accidents” makes her fear that she will soon be a widow instead of a wife. As their hunt for lost riches turns into the search for a killer, Isobel fights her attraction to the man who stole her birthright…but can Jack convince Isobel that he can provide a home for her heart, and a love to treasure?

"From the book cover: "Hattie S. Cosgrove was a hardware store heiress who came to the West in 1907. In the Southwest corner of New mexico she fell in love with the vast and wild Gila River country and soon discovered the ruins and traces of the long-vanished Mimbres Indians. . .She developed precise and scientific methods for recording her excavations and her careful work led to a career as an archaeologist for Harvard University. Hattie's work in the Southwest and her hauntingly beautiful drawing of Mimbres black-on-white bowls are a remarkable legacy of a vanished culture and an extraordinary woman, archaeologist and artist."

Drawing on their experiences as fathers, eleven men share what they have learned about parenting, living a Christian life, and the relationship between the two. As fathers to children ranging in age from the very young to adults, contributors reflect on some of their joys and successes as fathers but also on their questions, concerns, mistakes, sorrows, and hopes--for themselves and for their children. They invite all parents to reflect on and learn from their own parenting experiences. This kind of reflection fosters wisdom, perspective, and, in solidarity with other parents, gratitude, confidence, and hope in the parenting life.
