SheÆs an outlaw. HeÆs a preacher. Both are in need of a miracle. Sarah Prescott has never known a respectable life.

But when the once-respected clergyman encounters a feisty redhead in handcuffs with a dying U.S. Marshal at her side, their journey takes a dramatic turn. His high-society expectations and SarahÆs outlaw habits clash from the start. With a price on her head and towing an orphaned baby rescued from the brink of starvation, Justin and Sarah make the difficult journey toward Rocky Creek. There, justice will be meted out. Perhapsùthey hopeùwith a healthy portion of grace. Filled with mishaps, laughs, and adventure, Margaret BrownleyÆs inspiring romance will keep readers cheering for Sarah as she struggles to become a true lady.

A legendary era comes to vivid life in this saga of the beautiful, unforgiving American West, where the only thing more vital than hard work is the love of an unforgettable woman. “A sprawling, emotional love story.” —Publishers Weekly The Calder family patriarch is known throughout Montana as a force no one in his right mind would cross.

Dailey fearlessly explores the sheer grit of the women and men who settled the frontier, the characters, both strong and weak, who competed for a piece of the open range, and the fascinating, never more timely story of America's westward expansion.

Book Summary:

Explains why there is a crisis in caring for elderly people and how the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated it Because government policies are based on an ethic of family responsibility, repeated calls to support family members caring for the burgeoning elderly population have gone unanswered. Without publicly funded long-term care services, many family caregivers cannot find relief from obligations that threaten to overwhelm them. The crisis also stems from the plight of direct care workers (nursing home assistants and home health aides), most of whom are women from racially marginalized groups who receive little respect, remuneration, or job security. Drawing on an online support group for people caring for spouses and partners with dementia, Elder Care in Crisis examines the availability and quality of respite care (which provides temporary relief from the burdens of care), the long, tortuous process through which family members decide whether to move spouses and partners to institutions, and the likelihood that caregivers will engage in political action to demand greater public support. When the pandemic began, caregivers watched in horror as nursing homes turned into deathtraps and then locked their doors to visitors. Terrified by the possibility of loved ones in nursing homes contracting the disease or suffering from loneliness, some caregivers brought them home. Others endured the pain of leaving relatives with severe cognitive impairments at the hospital door and the difficulties of sheltering in place with people with dementia who could not understand safety regulations or describe their symptoms. Direct care workers were compelled to accept unsafe conditions or leave the labor force. At the same time, however, the disaster provided an impetus for change and helped activists and scholars develop a vision of a future in which care is central to social life. Elder Care in Crisis exposes the harrowing state of growing old in America, offering concrete solutions and illustrating why they are necessary.

He's a wild-West attorney and she's his beautiful client. Could she really be guilty of murder? Attorney Brock Daniels meets Grace Davenport in the least romantic setting he could imagine: the town jail. And yet her beauty and kindness capture his heart almost from the start.

This last one makes her a widow three times over, with each of her dead husbands worse than the last. Geoffrey ate poisoned mushrooms, Harry was so drunk he got thrown by a horse, and Billy Joe went missing after Grace chased him down and gave him what for at the saloon where he'd gambled away all their food money. Still, Brock is a skilled attorney. And Grace's son Jesse is determined to prove her innocence through researching case law at Brock's side until his mom is freed. In the end, Brock may be meeting Grace in front of a judge for an altogether more celebratory occasion . . . as soon as she's cleared. "A delightfully romantic tale." —Maggie Brendan, author of The Jewel of His Heart (on "And Then Came Spring" in A Bride for All Seasons) “Brownleyhas a way with words that keeps the reader interested until the last page.” —Romantic Times

Book Summary:

Angels eagerly watch over Ann Fletcher's every move. She just doesn't know it yet. Ann Fletcher has returned to Charleston to see her younger sister Sarah receive her master's degree. But she soon finds herself riding in the back of an ambulance, watching helplessly as Sarah fights for her life. As they race to the hospital, Sarah talks to someone who is not there...and hums a melody Ann has never heard before. That unfamiliar, unearthly beautiful melody keeps finding Ann--first in the hospital chapel, then in her dreams, and finally in Sarah's empty house. Two neighbors have a profound effect on Ann. Ethan McKinney lends her a shoulder to lean on. And as a carpenter, he volunteers to help Ann get the Fletcher family home into shape for selling. His strong presence is a pleasing distraction. Ann's twelve-year-old neighbor, Keith, has Down Syndrome and the guile to believe he can actually see and hear angels. In fact, he insists they are looking out for her in ways she's never imagined. God begins to reveal himself to Ann--both in her newfound friends and through supernatural events. As she discovers the very real presence of angels around her, will she finally open her heart to receive God's healing love?

Book Summary:

A classic book about language acquisition and conceptual structure, with a new preface by the author, "The Secret Life of Verbs." Before Steven Pinker wrote bestsellers on language and human nature, he wrote several technical monographs on language acquisition that have become classics in cognitive science. Learnability and Cognition, first published in 1989, brought together two big topics: how do children learn their mother tongue, and how does the mind represent basic categories of meaning such as space, time, causality, agency, and goals? The stage for this synthesis was set by the fact that when children learn a language, they come to make surprisingly subtle distinctions: pour water into the glass and fill the glass with water sound natural, but pour the glass with water and fill water into the glass sound odd. How can this happen, given that children are not reliably corrected for uttering odd sentences, and they don't just parrot back the correct ones they hear from their parents? Pinker resolves this paradox with a theory of how children acquire the meaning and uses of verbs, and explores that theory's implications for language, thought, and the relationship between them. As Pinker writes in a new preface, "The Secret Life of Verbs," the phenomena and ideas he explored in this book inspired his 2007 bestseller The Stuff of Thought: Language as a Window into Human Nature. These technical discussions, he notes, provide insight not just into language acquisition but into literary metaphor, scientific understanding, political discourse, and even the conceptions of sexuality that go into obscenity.

Book Summary:

His father wants him to carry on the family tradition and apprentice as a tailor.When Lars is sent by ship to Stockholm from his small hometown in Sweden to begin his apprenticeship, instead of checking in as a passenger, he signs on as a cabin boy. The ship's master befriends Lars and helps him escape the wrath of his father by arranging a berth on another ship that takes him to England and a life at sea.In his adventures as a sailor, which begin in 1877, Lars finds friendship as he journeys around the world. Fighting off storms and pirates, the sailors commiserate on lost loves and lost opportunities. Larsson's Legend is the stunning portrayal of a man in conflict. How can Lars hate his own father? "Why did his heart feel as though it was bleeding; as though it was filled with broken glass?" "The author is an artist with paint and brush, and it seems that her God-given talents apply also to words that paint pictures with such skill and clarity that I was totally absorbed in the story. What an adventure! Everyone has heard the clich comments: Amazing book! Begs to be read! Couldn't put it down! Well, this book certainly deserves such descriptions. I really enjoyed it." - Janette Bannerman B.A.V.A. Dip. Ed.
