By: Brilliance Audio Amazon | Goodreads

She's from the wrong side of the tracks...

Liberty Jones has dreams and determination that will take her far away from Welcome, Texas—if she can keep her wild heart from ruling her mind. Hardy Cates sees Liberty as completely off-limits. His own ambitions are bigger than Welcome, and Liberty Jones is a complication he doesn’t need. But something magical and potent draws them to each other, in a dangerous attraction that is stronger than both of them.

He's the one man she can't have...

Sisterhood in all its drama, hilarity and tears is at the heart of New York Times bestselling author Kristan Higgins's thoroughly captivating new novel, featuring the wit and romance that readers have come to expect from the much-loved creator of the Blue Heron series...

Her timing couldn't be more perfect, since Rachel will need her younger sister. Her idyllic marriage has just fallen to pi…

Author Talk: Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Last week, I had the pleasure of meeting Susan Elizabeth Phillips before her signing for the HEROES ARE MY WEAKNESS tour stop in Sykesville, Maryland. We had an old-fashioned sit down chat where we talked about books, writing, and families while enjoying some delicious French coffee. I don't have the best track record when it comes to first impressions. In my nervousness, I usually say or do something embarrassing. This time, I only managed to drop my phone, my keys and my purse 4 times in the time it took me to climb out of my car and shake Susan's hand. That counts as winning. 

Susan was staying at a charming Bed and Breakfast that was within walking distance of the cafe we were headed to, so we decided to walk. We passed several old victorian homes, one in particular that reminded me of Theo's house in HEROES ARE MY WEAKENESS. Susan paused to snap a picture and said, "Paint it black and put it on a cliff and it you have Harp House."

For the Love: Fighting for Grace in a World of Impossible Standards

Author:Jen Hatmaker
Publication: August 18, 2015
By: Thomas Nelson
Amazon | B&N | Goodreads 

The popular writer, blogger, and television personality reveals with humor and style how Jesus' extravagant grace is the key to dealing with life's biggest challenge: people.

The majority of our joys, struggles, thrills, and heartbreaks relate to people, beginning first with ourselves and then the people we came from, married, birthed, live by, live for, go to church with, don't like, don't understand, fear, struggle with, compare ourselves to, and judge. People are the best and worst thing about the human life.

Jen Hatmaker knows this all too well, and so she reveals how to practice kindness, grace, truthfulness, vision, and love to ourselves and those around us. By doing this, For the Love leads our generation to reimagine Jesus' grace as a way of life, and it does it in a funny yet profound manner that Christian readers will love. Along the way, Hatmaker shows…

Four years ago, a car accident ended Zedekiah Harrow’s ballet career and sent Philadelphia Ballet principal dancer Alyona Miller spinning toward the breakdown that suspended her own.
