Book Summary:

For Lucas Gault, his twenty-third birthday brings with it the gnawing sense that his privileged life isn't adding up. A sense driven deeper as he examines himself through the lovely eyes of a poised young woman he meets at a New York nightclub. To Luke she represents getting back to the values his father raised him and his twin brother on--if only he can convince the disciplined and focused "working man's" daughter, that he is more than just a shallow celebrity. However, Luke has some major issues to work out, not the least of which are, toning down his decadent British rocker lifestyle and reining in his impulsive sexual nature. These challenges and breaking away from his controlling brother prove to be harder than he thought. Worse yet, just when he begins to make headway with her, he finds himself embroiled personally in the burgeoning AIDS epidemic of the '80's. Raena, wants to be more than "Daddy's little girl," an insurmountable endeavor, especially considering who her father is and the far-reaching influence he wields on either side of the Atlantic. Initially Raena does try to take her more worldly-wise cousin's advise and remain a "good girl," focusing her attention on her studies and her passion, dance. However, the power of coincidence, curiosity and physical attraction prove to be strong pulls for her and she soon finds herself heading down a questionable road she is not equipped to travel. A road she has paved with deceptions that could very well lead to something way worse than heartache.

Book Summary:

NAMED A REAL SIMPLE BOOK OF THE YEAR From the award-winning author of Dust comes a vibrant, stunning coming-of-age novel about a young woman struggling to find her place in a vast world--a poignant exploration of fate, mortality, love, and loss. On the island of Pate, off the coast of Kenya, lives solitary, stubborn Ayaana and her mother, Munira. When a sailor named Muhidin, also an outsider, enters their lives, Ayaana finds something she has never had before: a father. But as Ayaana grows into adulthood, forces of nature and history begin to reshape her life and the island itself--from a taciturn visitor with a murky past to a sanctuary-seeking religious extremist, from dragonflies to a tsunami, from black-clad kidnappers to cultural emissaries from China. Ayaana ends up embarking on a dramatic ship's journey to the Far East, where she will discover friends and enemies; be seduced by the charming but unreliable scion of a powerful Turkish business family; reclaim her devotion to the sea; and come to find her own tenuous place amid a landscape of beauty and violence and surprising joy. Told with a glorious lyricism and an unerring sense of compassion, The Dragonfly Sea is a transcendent story of adventure, fraught choices, and of the inexorable need for shelter in a dangerous world.

Book Summary:

Read the USA Today bestseller from the author of Roses, a "sumptuous, full-bodied, and emotional" novel about five young spies embedded among the highest Nazi ranks in occupied Paris (Adriana Trigiani, NYT bestselling author of Tony's Wife). At the height of World War II, a handful of idealistic young Americans receive a mysterious letter from the government, asking them if they are willing to fight for their country. The men and women from very different backgrounds -- a Texan athlete with German roots, an upper-crust son of a French mother and a wealthy businessman, a dirt-poor Midwestern fly fisherman, an orphaned fashion designer, and a ravishingly beautiful female fencer -- all answer the call of duty, but each for a secret reason of her or his own. They bond immediately, in a group code-named Dragonfly. Thus begins a dramatic cat-and-mouse game, as the group seeks to stay under the radar until a fatal misstep leads to the capture and the firing-squad execution of one of their team. But is everything as it seems, or is this one more elaborate act of spycraft?

Book Summary:

Murder rocks a wedding celebration at an idyllic lakeside home—and librarian-turned-sleuth Greer Hogan could be next on the killer’s guest list in this second exciting installment, perfect for fans of Louise Penny. Librarian Greer Hogan is on hand to celebrate her old friend Sarah Whitaker’s nuptials at the Whitaker summer home on beautiful Mirror Lake, just outside the upstate New York village of Lake Placid. But Greer has an ulterior motive—to gather information that could reopen the investigation into her husband’s murder, a crime for which she believes an innocent man went to prison. Her plans come to a shuddering halt when a wedding guest goes missing and turns up dead in the lake. The guest, Brittany Miles, was an employee of the Whitaker family whom Sarah had long suspected was up to no good at work. The police have no leads, but Greer—an avid reader of crime fiction who possesses an uncanny knack for deduction—begins her own investigation. She learns that the victim was seen with a mystery man right before she disappeared. Then the autopsy reveals that she didn’t drown in the lake after all, but in the reflecting pool in the Whitaker garden. The suspect list is as long as the guest list itself, with no apparent motive. Now, Greer must rely on the wisdom of her favorite fictional detectives to tease out truth from lies—and keep herself out of the killer’s sights.

Book Summary:

Love Sketches explores the sensuality of romance and the varieties and vagaries of love..Former colleagues, almost lovers, meet to discuss literature only to discover a yearning that rekindles their lost romance; teenagers infused with the early fl owering of romance struggle to maintain that romance against all odds; a young romantic learns a tragic lesson of love and redemption all too soon; an elderly professor devises a plan for one last try at romance; and amid an atmosphere rich in romance and sensuality two close friends reunite to reveal deep feelings theyve held for one another, feelings which went unnourished for those years they had convinced one another they were just friends. Book Review The fourteen stories in this collection bring us up close and personal with the many faces of love. These are more than sketches; these stories cover love's waterfront. The characters are ordinary, innocent, worldly and they are stopped short when they're tripped up by and succumb to love. The settings are varied - run-down apartment buildings, city offices, motel rooms, sleekly designed suburban homes, but the message is the same- regardless of age or class or means, love is acutely and intensely felt. There is romance but these are not simple romantic stories. The characters are complex, their lives are often adverse and conflicted, filled with guilt, anxiety and crises of conscience and there are no easy answers and few resolutions. The reader is sometimes forced to think beyond stereotypes- of age and class; we are often surprised by the turn of events, by sudden acts of tenderness. But the charge of love is everywhere, and the sensuality and sensuousness of the language is what stands out. There is a grace and lightness in the writing where a look, a touch, a sigh, a gesture between lovers allows the reader to be party to the ache and intimacy of the characters. Much is gleaned in these small gestures and much is left unsaid. Nature too plays a part- lovers walk through city parks, shelter under an umbrella in a rain shower, gaze out at lush trees though a huge glass window. The stories are suffused with longing and in some an air of melancholy pervades. In `Close Friends' two friends - `almost lovers' once- meet again and realise that love has held up after many years. In `Claire' a lonely wife prepares for a rendezvous with a man she doesn't even like in her desperate need for connection. This `dirty realist' story is played out against a backdrop of strip malls and dollar shops, but it is Claire's inner dialogue and longing for union with her husband that leaves the greatest impression. In `Bus Trip' and `The Graveyard of Romance' the sparse conversations and the minutiae of the daily lives of married couples are closely observed, and despite a lifetime of shared experiences and much compassion there is a palpable loneliness at the heart of these relationships. The Dance of Romance is a witty poignant glimpse of a 70 year Eng Lit professor as he comes to terms with the loss of his attractiveness to girls and women. `What I wanted was one last chance to push the pause button ...' In the perfectly paced story `A Long Romance' Dalton, a rich, middle- class, forty-something year old is captivated by Joleen, a young office girl. The reader is prepared to suspect his motives but for a while it is Joleen we mistrust. Their unlikely love is conveyed skilfully though Joleen's unique voice with her Southern dialect and colloquialisms and her utter honesty, and when the tears come they are killer tears. There is nothing precious or sentimental here, but it is achingly moving....`I can't believe somebody like you could happen to somebody like me.' The lovers in this collection are young, old, rich and poor, angry and vulnerable- love has indeed `many faces'. There are some happy endings but most of the characters are left to their uncertain lives, in sto

To be a normal teenage girl. To forget about the past. To fall in love for the first time. Is that too much to ask? Sixteen-year-old Allie Bailey just wants a break—a break from her overly-protected life. And Dragonfly Meadows summer camp is the answer. A summer away from her parents in the California Sierras with her best friend is exactly what she needs. But once at camp, Allie notices that things are a little off.

Unable to let it rest due to her past, she starts to investigate, enlisting the help of Logan Montgomery, her best friend's older and adorably geeky brother. When hauntingly familiar flowers appear in Allie’s cabin, she’s not sure what to think—has her past caught up to her? Yet, after Allie stumbles across a murder conspiracy and chases down the truth, she becomes a target. Pushing through her paranoia and fear to find strength, it’s up to Allie to save herself and the campers from a deranged killer before it’s too late.

Book Summary:

Life—and death—may be hard; but joy is simple. Lannette Cornell Bloom, a typical, overworked nurse, wife, and mom of two, was forty-three when her mother was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. She quit her job and dove headlong into the familiar role of caretaking. This choice—to slow down and be present for the hardest year of her life—resulted in an awakening. In unexpected moments, as childhood memories flooded into the present, Lannette glimpsed bits of magic that existed just beyond the pain. Without knowing it, she was experiencing a mindful dying process with her mother—and it was a journey that would change the way she lived the rest of her life. A touching and soulful memoir that gracefully uncovers the beauty that is often lost within the dying process, Memories in Dragonflies is a beautiful portrait of what it means to be human and a gentle reminder to enjoy every moment, because even the simplest ones bring lasting joy.

Book Summary:

Utterly odious. A battery of heinous crimes that are morbidly gripping and ghoulish paralyze the local law enforcement community. Lacking any corroborative or substantive evidence, all they can do, standby and watch as the kidnapping and killing spree evolves. For years, law enforcement investigators, academics, mental health experts, and the media have studied serial murder, from Jack the Ripper in the late 1800s to the sniper killings in 2002 and the Zodiac Killer in California to the BTK Killer in Kansas. Every day, law enforcement officers across America get called to respond to murders. While each homicide case is tragic, few are more heartrending and troublesome to understand than serial murder. The backdrop for this story is the killing and kidnapping spree of prolific Alaskan serial killer Robert Hansen. Hansen abducted, raped, and murdered at least 17 women in and around Anchorage, Alaska. Author Robert Algeri served in Alaska during serial killer Robert Hansen's most active murder years and interacted with Mr. Hansen in numerous settings.

Book Summary:

When hack agent Jimmy "Tex" Balaban discovers Ralf on a Borscht Belt stage, his act appears to be a clever joke. Ralf claims to be from the future, shouting foul-mouthed prophecies of where we went wrong. And he delivers a harrowing message. The world is in chaos. Our biosphere has been devastated, our air is unbreathable and the final stalwarts of mankind have taken refuge in pressurized shopping malls. Humanity clings to the last mediocre vestiges of life on a dead planet that we did not know how to save. But it might not be too late. Has Ralf returned to the past to awaken our consciences? Is he who he says he is or is he insane? And if we have one last chance to save the world, does any of this matter? Then Dexter D. Lampkin, a fading science fiction writer, and Amanda Robin, a New Age guru-wannabe, magnificently transform Ralf into what the world really needs: a messenger sent from the future to save us from ourselves. Together with Tex they polish Ralf's television persona to captivate America. The problem is that Ralf never goes out of character. He truly believes he is a prophet.

When Pearl dies, her niece Juliette Danetree, the sole legal heiress of her family’s history and assets in Petit Coeur, returns to settle the affairs and sell Greyfriairs. She faces lies, a curse, and deception that hang like Spanish moss from all branches of her ancestral tree—a story that begins in 1742 and flows with the Danetree family from France to Louisiana. An old trunk holds more questions than answers, and mysterious strangers attach themselves to her home and heart. Their truths lie in each other’s hearts and in the blood they share. Juliette finds escape is not an option and her law background doesn’t include lifting curses. She’ll need more than legal skills to maneuver through the misdeeds of the past

Book Summary:

Turq the turtle is insecure about living in two separate habitats. It’s tricky spending part of his time on an island with his dad and the rest of his time inland with his mom.

To conquer his fear of deep water, as well as get answers to life’s difficult questions, Turq goes on a brave journey to visit the Wise Old Frog. Join Turq as he navigates his way through the great outdoors and life as a child with separated parents. Much like The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein, Turq the Turtle tackles the difficult realities of the nature and culture in a touching, memorable, and entertaining way. If you—or someone you know— is part of a separated family, Turq’s story will resonate with you and warm your heart.

Book Summary:

This monograph is the first of its kind devoted entirely to the dragonfly nymphs of North America north of Mexico, the focus being accurate identification of the 330 species of Anisoptera that occur in the region. Nymphal external morphology is described and illustrated in detail, and all terms needed to navigate the dichotomous keys are defined. Species are tabulated with references that provide the most detailed, accurate descriptions for each; species that are inadequately described are so indicated. The key separating the seven families in the region contains several new characters. The families are then covered separately: Aeshnidae (13 genera), Gomphidae (17 genera), Petaluridae (2 genera), Cordulegastridae (2 genera), Macromiidae (2 genera), Corduliidae (7 genera), and Libellulidae (29 genera). Each family is further characterized, followed by a generic key. A drawing of the habitus and diagnostic details for each genus are provided, along with additional diagnostic remarks and notes on habitat and life cycle; for each genus, a map shows its geographic distribution in North America. Full-grown nymphs of all known species of each genus are keyed and diagnosed; characters that apply to earlier instars are noted. Morphological variation in character states was analyzed in order to assess the reliability of previously utilized characters and to discover new characters. Most of the characters used to distinguish all levels of taxa are illustrated; a total of 702 figures, comprising 1,800 original drawings, along with selected photographs where necessary for clarity, accompany the keys. Measurements of total length, head width, and other variables for each species are provided in tables. Difficulties with past keys and descriptions, including errors, omissions and other shortcomings, are addressed. The importance of nymph characters in helping solve generic and specific distinctions and their role in phylogenetic studies is emphasized. Methods for collecting, rearing, and preserving dragonfly nymphs and exuviae are presented. The final chapter discusses research opportunities on North American Anisoptera nymphs, including taxonomic needs, studies on structure and function, life history and microhabitat, water quality indices and conservation efforts. The habitus drawings of all genera are arranged according to family in five plates (Appendix I); although the book is intended as a lab manual, these plates conveniently allow for comparison based on nymph shape making field identification to genus possible in many cases. Appendix II contains a brief history of dragonfly nymph studies in North America. A glossary and an index to scientific names are included.

Book Summary:

Almost without our noticing, dragonflies dart through our world, flying, seeing, hunting, mating. Their lives are as mysterious as their gossamer wings are beautiful. In this book Pieter van Dokkum reveals many of the dragonfly’s secrets, capturing the stages of this striking insect’s life cycle in unprecedented close-up photographs. He documents scenes of dragonfly activity seldom witnessed and rarely photographed. The book begins on a moonlit summer night, when an alien-looking larva crawls out of the water and transforms into a fully formed dragonfly. In the following chapters we witness dew-covered dragonflies sparkling in the morning sun, then a pair of mating dragonflies moving through the air in a twelve-legged, eight-winged dance. In the final chapter, one generation dies as the next prepares to leave the water and begin its own winged journey. Each stage is documented through van Dokkum’s inquisitive lens and accompanied by information on various species of dragonflies and damselflies, their metamorphosis, and their ecological importance as insect predators.
