              After my son Kyle Ferriera van Leer declared his major in Egyptology at Yale in 2010, he mentioned the Book of Two Ways in passing. Without knowing a thing about it, I said, That's a great title for a novel. It was only after he began to explain what it actually was that I realiz...ed what I needed to write about - the construct of time, and love, and life, and death --

Searching for other holiday plans, Everly tasks her assistant with booking her a cruise--the perfect getaway.

              NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Jonathan Kellerman's psychology skills and dark imagination are a potent literary mix ( Los Angeles Times ), and this intensely thrilling blend has never been so powerful as in the acclaimed author's new novel of murder and madness among the beautiful dr...eamers, seductive predators, and doomed innocents adrift in the glare of Southern California's eternal sunshine. A series of horrifying events occur in quick succession in the same upscale L.A. neighborhood. A backyard renovation unearths an infant's body, buried sixty years ago. And soon thereafter in a nearby park, another disturbingly bizarre discovery is made not far from the body of a young woman shot in the head. Helping LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis to link these eerie incidents is brilliant psychologist Alex Delaware. But even the good doctor's vast experience with matters both clinical and criminal might not be enough to cut down to the bone of this chilling case--and draw out the disturbing truth. Backtracking six decades into the past stirs up tales of a beautiful nurse with a mystery lover, a handsome, wealthy doctor who seems too good to be true, and a hospital with a notorious reputation--all of them long gone, along with any records of a newborn, and destined for anonymity. But the specter of fame rears its head when the case unexpectedly twists in the direction of the highest echelons of celebrity privilege. Entering this sheltered world, Alex little imagines the macabre layer just below the surface--a decadent quagmire of unholy rituals and grisly sacrifice. Before their work is done, Alex and Milo, the most original whodunit duo since Watson and Holmes ( Forbes ), must confront a fanatically deranged mind of such monstrous cunning that even the most depraved madman would shudder. Praise for Jonathan Kellerman and Guilt A solid, poignant tale of violence and innocence . . . cool, brisk and polished. -- The Washington Post Certainly one of [Kellerman's] best offerings

              One woman's tenacious journey to escape poverty and create a billion-dollar farming business--without ever leaving the land she loved. The youngest of her parents' combined twenty-one children living on a failing farm in Southern Illinois, Sarah Frey grew up hungry, often having ...to catch or kill her own dinner with her siblings. Angered by her parents' continual cycle of losing the family farm to the bank, Frey started her own farmstand and produce delivery business at age fifteen. By the time she was seventeen she was able to buy back the family farm herself. Today her company, Frey Farms, is one of America's largest produce suppliers, owning farmland across seven states. The Growing Season is the story of how Sarah's tough childhood propelled her to grab any opportunity and take risks, believing she had little to lose. Filled with amazing stories of how this gutsy teenager talked her way into boardrooms and deals with business-suited retailers more than twice her age, the book will inspire a wide range of readers, and especially young women entrepreneurs. Now forty-three, Sarah Frey is already a business legend with a powerful story to tell. Her book has plenty of tips for female entrepreneurs, like Don't play their game, play your game and Don't doubt yourself, even if you feel under-qualified, as so many women tend to do.

              After rising from poverty to earn a Harvard degree, an Appalachian lawyer pays tribute to the strong hill women who raised and inspired her, and whose values have the potential to rejuvenate a struggling region--an uplifting and eye-opening memoir for readers of Hillbilly Elegy a...nd Educated. Nestled in the Appalachian mountains, Owsley County is the poorest county in Kentucky and the second poorest in the country. Buildings are crumbling and fields sit vacant, as tobacco farming and coal mining decline. But strong women are finding creative ways to subsist in their hollers in the hills. Cassie Chambers grew up amidst these hollers, and through her Granny, her aunt Ruth, and her mother, Wilma, she crafts a story of struggle and progress that traces her own path out of and back into the Kentucky mountains. Cassie's Granny was a child bride who rose before dawn every morning to raise seven children, and who, despite her poverty, wouldn't hesitate to give the last bite of pie or vegetables from her garden to a struggling neighbor. Her two daughters would take very different paths: strong-willed Ruth--the hardest-working tobacco farmer in the county--stayed on the family farm, while spirited Wilma became the only one of Granny's kids to graduate high school, then moved an hour away to attend college. Married at nineteen and pregnant with Cassie a few months later, Wilma beat the odds to finish college. She raised her daughter to think she could move mountains, like the ones that kept her safe but also isolated from the larger world. Cassie would spend much of her childhood with Granny and Ruth in the hills of Owsley County, both while Wilma was a college student and after. With her hill women values guiding her, Cassie went on to graduate from Harvard Law. But while the Ivy League gave her knowledge and opportunities, its privileged world felt far from Cassie's reality, and she headed back home to help her fellow rural Kentucky women by providing free legal services.
