Now available for the first time as an eBook, this luminescent novel by New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer enthralls with a story of difficult choices, complicated loves, and hard-won triumphs. At the age of forty-six, Daphne Miller is a first-time homeowner, a divorced college administrator whose daughter has moved in with her father. On a dirt road in the green mountains of southern Vermont, Daphne has at last found a home of her own. It may be tiny, but the rustic cottage is hers, and she’s determined to make it perfect. Just down the lane, Jack Hamilton and his young family move in. The newly appointed English professor Jack has long dreamed of teaching at his prestigious alma mater, but his wife Carey Ann is terribly unhappy in rural New England. As Daphne takes Carey Ann under her wing, Jack suppresses his growing attraction for his new neighbor and the two become friends. But for Daphne, this increasingly complex friendship brings back the painful memories of a previous betrayal. Now at an unexpected crossroads, Daphne must let go of the woman she has become—and reach out for the woman she longs to be. Includes a captivating preview of Nancy Thayer’s upcoming novel Nantucket Sisters! Praise for the novels of Nancy Thayer “The queen of beach books.”—The Star-Ledger “Thayer has a deep and masterly understanding of love and friendship, of where the two complement and where they collide.”—Elin Hilderbrand “Thayer’s gift for reaching the emotional core of her characters [is] captivating.”—Houston Chronicle “One of my favorite writers.”—Susan Wiggs “Thayer portrays beautifully the small moments, inside stories and shared histories that build families.”—The Miami Herald “Thayer’s sense of place is powerful, and her words are hung together the way my grandmother used to tat lace.”—Dorothea Benton Frank

Anyone who loves great American desserts will delight in Grandma's Wartime Baking Book. The result of extensive research, interviews, and recipe testing, Joanne Lamb Hayes's follow-up to Grandma's Wartime Kitchen delivers beloved and still irresistible recipes for cakes, pies, cookies, cobblers, muffins, breads, and other baked treats created by women on the Home Front during the challenging days of World War II.

Meet our Joshua Hanks. He is the utmost sarcastic, out-of-place, and isolated individual you can ever know. He’s in his college years achieving his marine biology degree, and yet he still hasn’t found a girlfriend, friends, or even an actual bond with his own parents. The only spot-on friend he’s ever had in his lifetime is his irrational grandfather. Then almost toward the end of his spring semester, everything changes. He temporarily loses his gramps who, by the way, has been an old fisherman back in his day. People say he lost his marbles a long time ago when he began talking of mermaids and sirens, though Josh has faith in Gramps. He always knows better about the duchesses and monstrosities of the sea. Joshua Hanks has a few unanswered questions: Will he ever get his gramps back? Who is the naked lady who always seems to appear at their spot? Also, what does the future have in store for him?
