After all, the restaurant saw the people of a city become more confident in everything from their lifestyles to the food that they chose to eat. And Quentins has a thousand stories to tell. But as Ella uncovers more of what has gone on at Quentins, she begins to wonder whether some secrets should be kept that way... “Quentins is not just any Dublin restaurant; it’s a place where wedding proposals, business deals, family ties, and friendships are forged (and sometimes broken).”—The Seattle Times

Scarlet doesn’t have an easy life. She’s never known her dad, her mom suffers from depression, and her younger brother Red has Asperger’s and relies heavily on her to make the world a safe place for him. Scarlet does this by indulging Red’s passion for birds, telling him stories about the day they’ll go to Trinidad and see all the wonderful birds there (especially his beloved Scarlet Ibis), saving her money to take him to the zoo, helping him collect bird feathers, and even caring for a baby pigeon who is nesting outside his window. But things with her mom are getting harder, and after a dangerous accident, Scarlet and Red are taken into foster care and separated. As Scarlet struggles to cope with the sudden changes in her life and her complex feelings towards her mom, the one thing she won’t give up on is finding Red. Nothing is going to get in her way—even if it might destroy the new possibilities offered to her by her foster family.

As Jack discovers that his reluctant bride is no ordinary beauty, he feels a stir of admiration, among other emotions, that wasn’t part of the bargain. Now he’s the one with everything to lose. . . .

Book Far Memory

Download or read book Far Memory written by Joan Marshall Grant and published by . This book was released on 2009-06 with total page 246 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: During the last twenty years, seven books of mine have been published as historical novels which to me are biographies of previous lives I have known. Far Memory is the autobiography of my ¬rst thirty years in the twentieth century. From early childhood, often to my extreme discomfort, I was sometimes aware beyond the usual range of the ¬ve senses. I tried to ignore the implications of this awareness, but it was too insistent; so in an attempt to understand what was happening I laboriously trained the faculty of far memory. This book describes, among other things, how I did so and what happened to me as the result. "Twenty years ago a book was published that electrified the world, a story set in ancient Egypt, entitled Winged Pharaoh. It was written by a young woman called Joan Grant. Now a book is published, Far Memory, which is Joan Grant's autobiography. It tells how Winged Pharaoh came to be written. It is the most touching, most amusing, most astonishing real life story I have ever read." - Nancy Spain, London Daily Express

Wingless since she was very young, she imagines deeper things, longing to know more than a warm bond with her birth oak. Then, one Thanksgiving night, humanness wanders into her realm when an autistic boy hangs himself from her oak tree. Heartbroken, Scarlet trails the boy's father and the rescue workers out of the woods. As the father stands alone and grief-stricken on a dirt road near his beat-up blue truck, Scarlet approaches, offering him a crimson leaf. By doing so, she trades her oak roots for human ones and her forest for farmland in a quest to unearth the tragic secret that led to the boy's death. But soon Scarlet falls for a complex youth named Warren. And if she gives in to this new kind of love, it will strip away her magic, and she can never truly return to her oak or nature's wild. Scarlet Oak is a soulful exploration of our fragile ties with nature, community, and loved ones. It poignantly grapples with how we move through loss to find meaning and connection.

But as a single father battling demons of his own, Noel can’t do it alone. Fortunately, he has a competent, caring network of friends, family and neighbors: Lisa, his unlucky-in-love classmate, who moves in with him to help him care for little Frankie around the clock; his American cousin, Emily, always there with a pep talk; the newly retired Dr. Hat, with more time on his hands than he knows what to do with; Dr. Declan and Fiona and their baby son, Frankie’s first friend; and many eager babysitters, including old friends Signora and Aidan and Frankie’s doting grandparents, Josie and Charles.

Now it’s up to Noel to persuade her that everyone in town has something special to offer when it comes to minding Frankie. "Joyful, quintessential Binchy." —O, The Oprah Magazine
