Author: Doug Lennox
Building on the success of his previous bestsellers, Now You Know, Now You Know More, and Now You Know Almost Everything, this fourth volume is headed straight for the bestseller list! It is Doug Lennox at his best as he masterfully dispenses the answers to quirky questions, never losing sight of the joy of discovering the "why" of ordinary things. Discover the fascinating histories behind people, places, and words: WHY DO WE SAY THAT SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN TREATED BADLY HAS BEEN "HUNG OUT TO DRY"? Discipline on early British sailing ships was necessary but often extreme. The cat-o’-nine-tails left sailors scarred for life, but keelhauling (tying a victim with a rope and pulling him under a ship) was feared most. If the prisoner survived, he was suspended from a yardarm where he was left hanging for a predetermined period of time. WHY IS A MILITARY DINING HALL CALLED A "MESS"? The term goes back to the Middle Ages, when British sailors began calling their meagre and often grub-infested meals a "mess." It evolved into meaning the general area where the sailors gathered to eat. Later it referred to a specific area where men gathered to eat, drink, and socialize.

Author: Lee McEachern
In 1996, during a period of questioning and evaluating his life up to that date, Lee McEachern took to heart spiritual writings he had read which emphasized the fastest way to lasting love, real peace, and happiness...and maybe even God...was through the eternal flame of love... and something happened. Lee felt like he was "just a regular guy, " but he had experienced something extraordinary that was out of this world and absolutely beyond words. Trusting in the Beloved (with a capital "B"), he made a connection to a Oneness of Love, then he spent three years creating his own spiritual writings (something that he had never done before) trying to describe the peace, love, and joy that he had glimpsed. He felt he knew that it resided at the center of our being...at the center of the being of everyone and everything. He knew "the Beloved" was in all of us. "What if I can get them to see a spark of that infinitely loving Oneness?" he thought. But after three years of "teaching Oneness" poetry, he stopped... or at least tried to, because the normal, regular, real world needed his attention. His wife and son needed his attention. In early 2013 Lee read Dr. Eben Alexander's book, "Proof of Heaven." His fascinating and strong message of an infinitely loving Oneness that is here now...and more real than anything we can perceive with our physical senses...made Lee think of his own "teaching Oneness" poetry. In his book Dr. Alexander wrote, "We are connected as One through our divine link with God." Lee thought, "His whole book resonates with what I experienced and what I was trying to describe back in the 90's. If a well educated, well respected neurosurgeon and scientist can stick his neck out and share his unorthodox oneness-of-love experience, then I will too!" So, Lee dusted off the old poems, added a few newer ones (remember, he said he tried to stop!).... and here you have "Beloved, we are One." (Thank you, Dr. Alexander, for giving me the nudge I needed to move forward. - Lee)

Her father is gone for good—not on a business trip like her mother said—and Annie knows it. Her little brother, Gus, might believe that he’ll come back, but Annie is too sharp, too observant, to believe this comforting lie. In their little house by the shore of Lake Michigan, where everything is the same and yet not, Annie, Gus, and their dreamy, beautiful mother, Paige, are on their own. Then, to add to Annie’s confusion, her mother starts to date Shepherd, a well-meaning and steadfast man who isn’t deterred by Paige’s frequent refusals of his affections. His devotion to her mother and kindhearted interest in her and Gus aside, Annie can’t tell if letting this man into their small, odd family will be the solution to their problems or the start of new ones. Revealing the intricacies of the adult world through the simple eyes of a child, Now You Love Me is a heartbreaking yet genuinely funny story about the joys and pitfalls of growing up and growing older.

"A hugely absorbing first novel from a writer with a fluid, vivid style and a rare knack for balancing the pleasure of entertainment with the deeper gratification of insight. More, please.” —Maggie Shipstead, The New York Times Book Review (Editors’ Choice) "A story about Russia, the United States, friendship, identity, defection, and deception that is smart, startling, and worth reading regardless of when you were born.” —Kathryn Schulz, New York Magazine "Holt's beguiling debut… in which there is no difference between personal and political betrayal, vividly conjures the anxieties of the Cold War without ever lapsing into nostalgia." —The New Yorker Sarah Zuckerman and Jennifer Jones are best friends in an upscale part of Washington, D.C., in the politically charged 1980s. Sarah is the shy, wary product of an unhappy home: her father abandoned the family to return to his native England; her agoraphobic mother is obsessed with fears of nuclear war. Jenny is an all-American girl who has seemingly perfect parents. With Cold War rhetoric reaching a fever pitch in 1982, the ten-year-old girls write letters to Soviet premier Yuri Andropov asking for peace. But only Jenny's letter receives a response, and Sarah is left behind when her friend accepts the Kremlin's invitation to visit the USSR and becomes an international media sensation. The girls' icy relationship still hasn't thawed when Jenny and her parents die tragically in a plane crash in 1985. Ten years later, Sarah is about to graduate from college when she receives a mysterious letter from Moscow suggesting that Jenny's death might have been a hoax. She sets off to the former Soviet Union in search of the truth, but the more she delves into her personal Cold War history, the harder it is to separate facts from propaganda. You Are One of Them is a taut, moving debut about the ways in which we define ourselves against others and the secrets we keep from those who are closest to us. In her insightful forensic of a mourned friendship, Holt illuminates the long lasting sting of abandonment and the measures we take to bring back those we have lost.

Toby and his brother team up to protect a magician from disappearing for good In the six years since he lost his job working security at the Warner Brothers’ lot, private investigator Toby Peters has taken cases from oddballs ranging from Peter Lorre to W. C. Fields. But none of them had the stage presence of Harry Blackstone, the greatest magician in the world. When an anonymous rival demands the illusionist reveal his secrets on stage or suffer the consequences, Blackstone hires Toby and his brother, ex-cop Phil, to run security at the show. What starts as a simple protection job turns dicey when Toby finds himself onstage, with a possibly unsafe magic saw about to slice through his midsection. Bodies pile up around the act, and the two detectives begin to think that the killer isn’t a jealous member of the Los Angeles Friends of Magic, but rather the great magician himself.

Fielding is a master of anticipation and knows how to create a labyrinth of tension, never providing an exit until the very last page' Toronto Globe & Mail Marcy Taggert lost her 21-year-old daughter, Devon, in a canoeing accident the year before. But because Devon's body was never recovered from the waters, Marcy has found it difficult to come to terms with her death and keeps seeing her daughter in the faces of strangers. Now, on a holiday to Ireland - which should have been a celebration of her 25th wedding anniversary until her husband left her for another woman - Marcy is convinced she has just seen Devon walk past the table where she is sitting outside a café in Cork. Desperate to appease her paranoia and lay her daughter's ghost to rest once and for all, Marcy begins a search to find Devon. But the truth, although her only salvation, is even more disturbing than she could ever have imagined...

"Tripping, stumbling and bumbling" is what I did on my journey to "falling in love". You might say that is exactly what happened when I met "Mr. Right". My heart was dark and empty. After all, love didn't love me, so why bother? But something happened on the way back from my dungeon; a light in a dark place he was. This quietly smooth, easy going, and ruggedly handsome man arrested my attention, slowly disarming me of my swords and whips. He took away the shields, and left me opened and exposed to experience everything I never knew about love. This book will take you on a journey. To those who never had a love like this before, here is hope: grab on, and don't let go. Never stop believing, because even in a sometimes cold and heartless world, everybody needs somebody, and there is somebody for everybody to love.
