From USA Today best-selling author Julianne MacLean comes an inspiring novel about secrets, forgiveness, and second chances. It's the newest title in her popular Color of Heaven Series, where people are affected by real life magic and miracles that change everything they once believed about life and love. It's been three years since Emma Cochran endured the worst possible tragedy - the sudden, unexpected death of her two-year-old son. The emotional trauma tore her marriage apart, but now her divorce is final and she wants to begin again. She's found happiness at last with her fiancé, Luke, who is eager to start a family with her. On the other side of the country, single mother Bev Hutchinson watches helplessly as her five-year-old daughter Louise drowns in a high-profile boating accident. Miraculously, Louise is brought back to life by first-responders, then claims she went to heaven. The news causes a media frenzy surrounding the little girl, and Bev does everything she can to shield herself and her daughter from the relentless swarming of the press. Lives collide when Emma becomes obsessed with the story of the child, thousands of miles away, who drowned and went to heaven. She wants to connect with the mother, but Emma's fiancé is against the idea because he wants her to let go of her grief and move on. But sometimes, moving on isn't the right choice when miracles are leading you back to your past - toward something, or someone, who was your destiny all along. 1. Language: English.

The FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list arose from a conversation held in late 1949, during a game of Hearts between J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation, and William Kinsey Hutchinson,International News Service Editor-in-Chief, who were discussing ways to promote capture of the FBI's "toughest guys". This discussion turned into a published article, which received so much positive publicity that on March 14, 1950, the FBI officially announced the list to increase law enforcement's ability to capture dangerous fugitives.Individuals are removed from this list when the fugitive is captured, killed, or if the charges against them are dropped, they are then replaced by a new entry selected by the FBI. In five cases, the FBI removed individuals from the list after deciding that they were no longer a "particularly dangerous menace to society".Donald Eugene Webb, added to the list in 1981, was on the list longer than anyone, at 25 years, 10 months, and 27 days.

ABOUT THE BOOK When Tina Fey left Saturday Night Live at the end of the 2005-2006 season to concentrate on developing, writing, and starring in a new program for NBC, reaction among comedy fans was mixed. On the one hand, SNL had lost yet another of the talented cast member who made it a resurgent hit in the late 1990s. On the other hand, anticipation of Fey's new show was high. Fey had originally pitched the series to NBC as a sitcom about a cable news network during early in her tenure as a writer for SNL. According to Time, when the pitch was rejected, she reworked the idea into a show revolving around a sketch comedy series and variety show not unlike SNL. NBC ordered a pilot for the show, which was well-reviewed upon its October 2006 debut, and went to series as 30 Rock. Although 30 Rock has rarely been a ratings darling, online reviews and critical establishment barometer, Metacritic, shows that it has been one of the critical establishment's most consistently well-reviewed television programs of the past ten years. It is also one of the best-reviewed comedies of all time. MEET THE AUTHOR Jonathan Nathan is a writer, an editor, and a comedian living in San Francisco. His work has appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, California Northern, The Rumpus, McSweeney's Internet Tendency, BeyondChron, the Hutchinson News, and other publications. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK There are two main storylines in the first season: Liz Lemon's struggle to find a compatible romantic partner while balancing her work and personal life, and the adjustment of the cast and crew of TGS to the new additions of Jack Donaghy and Tracy Jordan. Lemon's personal life is the meatiest and most constant plotline in the season, as she is the protagonist of the series and her work/life conflicts are largely the narrative hook of the show. In the first few episodes, her love life is barely mentioned, reflective of a new series still struggling to find its voice. The third episode of the series, 'Blind Date,' is the first to venture in this direction, and although it's primarily a one-and-done, short-term story played for awkward laughs when Jack sets Liz up on a blind date with a friend of his who turns out to be a woman (because, in his words, her shoes 'are definitely bi-curious'). The episode met universal acclaim and was greeted by many critics as a hopeful sign of things to come. The plotline was more earnestly engaged a few episodes later in 'Jack Meets Dennis,' when Liz takes back her ne'er-do-well ex-boyfriend, Dennis Duffy, to whom a few allusions had been made earlier in the season. Duffy is an obnoxious lout who epitomizes the stereotypes of the boorish South Bostonian, but Liz finds it hard to leave him permanently because he's easy and low-maintenance. Jack strongly disapproves, and warns Liz that she faces a mediocre life with Dennis in her future... Buy a copy to keep reading!
Anne Baker writes a compelling saga in Carousel of Secrets, detailing life for a young girl and her family as everything changes, although not necessarily for the better. Perfect for fans of Lyn Andrews and Lindsey Hutchinson. It's 1931 and eighteen-year-old Greta is working in a laundry in Liverpool, where she lives with her widowed mother and thirteen-year-old brother Kenny. When a scruffy black and white collie follows Greta home one day, Kenny wants to keep the animal, but they can't afford to feed him. And so Greta tracks down the owner: Mungo Masters, a wealthy man who runs funfairs in three towns. Mungo falls for Greta, though he's her mother's age, and doesn't bother to tell her that he's married already. When Mungo gives Greta and Kenny jobs at one of his fairs, it seems life is looking up. But Mungo is not good news... 'This book is an inspiring message of triumph over adversity and had me awake till early hours reading it' 'Great story. Could not put book down'
. . . wonderful, elegant and serious,' - The Telegraph 'MacLeod defied powers outwith his control in the only way he could . . . paints a compelling picture of the man' - Sunday Times ' An incredible testament to one man's determination' - The Sunday Herald 'It's inspiring to read about a man who wouldn't succumb, wouldn't let the Government threaten his way of life' - Publishing News 'An extraordinary tale' - The Bookseller 'This is an extraordinarily fine book, and one of the most important books to have come out of the Highlands and Islands in recent years' - West Highland Free Press Calum MacLeod had lived on the northern point of Raasay since his birth in 1911. He tended the Rona lighthouse at the very tip of his little archipelago, until semi-automation in 1967 reduced his responsibilities. 'So what he decided to do,' says his last neighbour, Donald MacLeod, 'was to build a road out of Arnish in his months off. With a road he hoped new generations of people would return to Arnish and all the north end of Raasay . . .' And so, at the age of 56, Calum MacLeod, the last man left in northern Raasay, set about single-handedly constructing the 'impossible' road. It would become a romantic, quixotic venture, a kind of sculpture; an obsessive work of art so perfect in every gradient, culvert and supporting wall that its creation occupied almost twenty years of his life. In Calum's Road, Roger Hutchinson recounts the extraordinary story of this remarkable man's devotion to his visionary project.
