            An emotional and heartfelt tale of love and courage. -Chanel Cleeton, bestselling author of the Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick Next Year in Havana November, 1941. She's never even seen the ocean before, but Eva Cassidy has her reasons for making the crossing to Hawaii, and they... run a lot deeper than escaping a harsh Michigan winter. Newly enlisted as an Army Corps nurse, Eva is stunned by the splendor she experiences aboard the steamship SS Lurline; even more so by Lt. Clark Spencer, a man she is drawn to but who clearly has secrets of his own. But Eva's past-and the future she's trying to create-means that she's not free to follow her heart. Clark is a navy intelligence officer, and he warns her that the United States won't be able to hold off joining the war for long, but nothing can prepare them for the surprise attack that will change the world they know. In the wake of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Eva and her fellow nurses band together for the immense duty of keeping the American wounded alive. And the danger that finds Eva threatens everything she holds dear. Amid the chaos and heartbreak, Eva will have to decide whom to trust and how far she will go to protect those she loves. Set in the vibrant tropical surroundings of the Pacific, The Lieutenant's Nurse is an evocative, emotional WWII story of love, friendship and the resilient spirit of the heroic nurses of Pearl Harbor.

The attack on Pearl Harbor changes... everything for Lana Hitchcock. Arriving home on the Big Island too late to reconcile with her estranged father, she is left alone to untangle the clues of his legacy, which lead to a secret property tucked away in the remote rain forest of Kilauea volcano. When the government starts taking away neighbors as suspected sympathizers, Lana shelters two young German girls, a Japanese fisherman and his son. As tensions escalate, they are forced into hiding-only to discover the hideaway house is not what they expected. When a detainment camp is established nearby, Lana struggles to keep the secrets of those in her care. Trust could have dangerous consequences. As their lives weave together, Lana begins to understand the true meaning of family and how the bonds of love carry us through the worst times.

            The quality of our personal relationships has never mattered more. It isn't enough to have lots of friends on social media. Or to give 'everything' to work hoping that will validate your existence. When familiar certainties are dissolving, we need to give and receive closeness to... feel fully alive. We also need self-trust to do far better than getting by. But how do we stay safe and open to others in a world that can seem harsh, indifferent - and unpredictable in the extreme? Stephanie Dowrick's Intimacy and Solitude starts with the most fundamental relationship of all: how you understand and care for your own self - knowing this will inevitably mirror all your most needed relationships. Using her exceptional gifts as a storyteller, as well as decades of work with people of all ages and cultures, Dr Dowrick brings to life the most profound and persuasive insights psychology offers - and much more. Through timeless wisdom and many moving examples, Dowrick shows that we can leave behind the anguish of insecurity, loss or loneliness. We can claim the self-understanding essential for loving others. We can look at our own lives with fresh appreciation, going forward into a life that's richer, calmer and far more secure. 'Since I was a teenager, Stephanie Dowrick's work has been absolutely central to my understanding of the possibility of happiness. The wisdom in her pages has comforted me in dark times and brought me insights that I fear I may otherwise have missed.' - Clare Bowditch, musician and writer 'Stephanie Dowrick is a godsend. Her gift is the ability to write in a manner that genuinely enriches and changes lives.' - Nigel Marsh, entrepreneur and CEO
