NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Debbie Macomber has written an emotionally stirring novel that shows how sometimes a choice can seem wrong even though it’s absolutely right. If not for her loving but controlling parents, Beth Prudhomme might never have taken charge of her life and moved from her native Chicago to Portland, Oregon, where she’s reconnected with her spirited Aunt Sunshine and found a job as a high school music teacher. If not for her friend Nichole, Beth would never have met Sam Carney, although first impressions have left Beth with serious doubts. Sam is everything Beth is not—and her parents’ worst nightmare: a tattooed auto mechanic who’s rough around the edges. Reserved and smart as a whip, Beth isn’t exactly Sam’s usual beer-drinking, pool-playing type of woman, either. But if not for an awkward setup one evening, Beth might never have left early and been involved in a car crash. And if not for Sam—who witnessed the terrifying ordeal, rushed to her aid, and stayed with her until help arrived—Beth might have been all alone, or worse. Yet as events play out, Sam feels compelled to check on Beth almost daily at the hospital—even bringing his guitar to play songs to lift her spirits. Soon their unlikely friendship evolves into an intense attraction that surprises them both. Before long, Beth’s strong-willed mother, Ellie, blows into town spouting harsh opinions, especially about Sam, and reopening old wounds with Sunshine. When shocking secrets from Sam’s past are revealed, Beth struggles to reconcile her feelings. But when Beth goes a step too far, she risks losing the man and the life she’s come to love. Praise for If Not for You “[An] uplifting and deliciously romantic tale with vibrant characters and a wide range of emotions.”—RT Book Reviews “A heartwarming story of forgiveness and unexpected love.”—Harlequin Junkie “A fun, sweet read.”—Publishers Weekly

Premio Nobel de Literatura 2016. Bob Dylan, cantautor de cantautores, recientemente galardonado con el Premio Nobel de Literatura -del que sólo hizo acuse de recibo por unas horas en su web-, presenta la edición integral de su cancionero completo, en edición bilingüe. Esta edición ofrece, por fin, la posibilidad de explorar el vastísimo -casi inconmensurable- universo poético del bardo de Minnesota, desde sus primeros tientos profesionales como cantautor contestatario e ídolo de su generación, hasta el día de la revelación en el que se obró el milagro -sacrilegio para muchos- que le llevó a abrazar las armas del rocanrol y electrificar su imaginario musical, despojándolo de las esencias folk que hasta entonces lo habían caracterizado. Con esa transformación también llegaría un nuevo lenguaje poético y su inclusión definitiva en el olimpo de los grandes del rock. De sus fugaces conversiones religiosas a otros credos y otros tantos desvaríos también da noticia el propio cancionero, una obra que deviene en hoja de ruta lírica de la singladura vital de Bob Dylan. Con este volumen Malpaso inicia la publicación de sus obras completas. Le seguirán 'Crónicas I', 'Tarántula' y 'Fotorretórica de Hollywood'.

Thomas George Ford learned early that life is not easy, especially for a young black man growing up in 1920s West Virginia.

Eventually, searching for work, he moves south to live with his uncle Eli. Though lighter skinned than her siblings, Grace White never thought to question the circumstances of her birth. But that changes when a tragic act of violence brings her face-to-face with both her past and her now uncertain future. When the lives of these two intersect, both Grace and George experience unexpected blessings, including survival through faith, strength through family, and wisdom through forgiveness.

**NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER** Her story. His story. The love story of Joey and Rory. By inviting so many into the final months of Joey’s life as she battled cancer, Joey and Rory Feek captured hearts around the world with how they handled the diagnosis; the inspiring, simple way they chose to live; and how they loved each other every step of the way. But there is far more to the story. “My life is very ordinary,” says Rory. “On the surface, it is not very special. If you looked at it, day to day, it wouldn’t seem like much. But when you look at it in a bigger context—as part of a larger story—you start to see the magic that is on the pages of the book that is my life. And the more you look, the more you see. Or, at least, I do.” In this vulnerable book, he takes us for the first time into his own challenging life story and what it was like growing up in rural America with little money and even less family stability. This is the story of a man searching for meaning and security in a world that offered neither. And it’s the story of a man who finally gives it all to a power higher than himself and soon meets a young woman who will change his heart forever. In This Life I Live, Rory Feek helps us not only to connect more fully to his and Joey’s story but also to our own journeys. He shows what can happen when we are fully open in life’s key moments, whether when meeting our life companion or tackling an unexpected tragedy. He also gives never-before-revealed details on their life together and what he calls “the long goodbye,” the blessing of being able to know that life is going to end and taking advantage of it. Rory shows how we are all actually there already and how we can learn to live that way every day. A gifted man from nowhere and everywhere in search of something to believe in. A young woman from the Midwest with an angelic voice and deep roots that just needed a place to be planted. This is their story. Two hearts that found each other and touched millions of other hearts along the way.

Based off a true story, a group of Jewish partisans fight the Nazis behind enemy lines during the final year of World War II. Primo Levi’s powerful novel is equal parts suspenseful and philosophical. World War II is in its final throes. As the Nazis retreat from the Red Army, much of Europe is left in total devastation. Against this backdrop, the watchmaker Mendel, who lost his wife and entire village to the Nazis, meets Leonid, a teenage escapee from a concentration camp. Stranded behind German lines, the pair makes their way through a desolate landscape to join a group of resistance fighters intent on sabotaging the enemy and liberating Jewish prisoners. An epic story stretching from Eastern Soviet Union to Northern Italy, If Not Now, When? is a novel about acts of resistance—both small and large—against impossible odds. Along with Elie Wiesel and Hannah Arendt, Primo Levi is remembered as one of the most powerful and perceptive writers on the Holocaust and the Jewish experience during World War II. This is an essential book both for students and literary readers. Reading Primo Levi is a lesson in the resiliency of the human spirit.

What is the best wedding advice you ever received? For author Seth Adam Smith, it was the advice from his father who said, “Marriage isn't for you. It's about the person you marry.” These few words completely changed the way Seth looked at his relationship with his wife-to-be. Because at that moment he realized that an expression of love isn't about the person expressing it. Rather, it's about the person they choose to be with. It's about making the person you marry feel loved.Adam's blog post on the subject was viewed by more than thirty million people, and he has been featured on several national TV programs including The Today Show. Now released as a hardcover book, featuring full-color photographs throughout, these sage words make the perfect gift for newly married couples, those who have been around the block a few times, or anyone who wants to learn how to make their relationships stronger.
