One family learns that love is the greatest miracle of all--from USA Today bestselling author Bette Lee Crosby. Aspiring journalist Meghan Briggs has always been the responsible one in the family. So when her father passes away unexpectedly, leaving behind his at-risk business, she steps up to save his legacy--even if that means putting her own dreams on hold. Tracy couldn't be more different from her sister. She's always been the rebellious type, without much direction in life. But in the wake of her latest romantic disaster, she finds herself moving back home as a single mother. As Tracy experiences the difficulties of new motherhood, Meghan faces her own struggle: trying not to fall for the stray puppy she rescued. This is no time for attachments--not to the adorable "Sox," whose owner is bound to turn up any day, and certainly not to the handsome new vet in town. But as the summer unfolds, she discovers that, like Sox, she may need rescuing, too. As both sisters navigate unexpected challenges and exciting new relationships, they'll find that putting the past to rest can make way for beautiful new beginnings.

"Crabapple Blossoms" draws you into the warm rhythms of Georgia farm life as the Depression came and went. Grace Smith and Sue Hunter skillfully capture the sounds and sights of tobacco cultivation and harvest, games children played using only their imaginations, humorous interactions with family and friends, country church services and funerals for pets. the sisters' account of a time at Berry College illustrates the unique nature of the school where sewing and tractor driving could be part of earning tuition--of a place where young people from farm families could learn skills and earn degrees that would open a new world to them. the stories of teaching school vividly present the problems in the days of few standards, a front row seat for what racial integration meant and some frank--and sometimes sardonic--observations of the often illogical curriculum reforms that will be familiar to anyone who taught or sat in a classroom during the last half century. "In 'Crabapple Blossoms,' Grace Smith and Sue Hunter bring the world of girlhood days on a Georgia tobacco farm, college days at Berry and teaching careers to life. with humor, honesty and style, they tell a unique story--one that captures the changing South in context of school, church and family." --W.

A woman's fulfillment lies in marriage and children. A career in business is merely a way to kill time until the right man comes along. Emjay Howe age thirty three had been hearing this all her life. As a girl she heard it from her mother and aunts and now she heard it from her contemporaries as well. Emjay Howe was still single at thirty three, but she had finished her B.A. degree and was well on her way to a career at Newtelco. The way she looked at it; the sky was the limit. She had set her sights on a possible V.P. sometime in the next fifteen years. Her mixed heritage, i.e. Cuban and Negro accounted for her fair skin, dark brown curly hair and light brown eyes. She was a striking figure; tall and slender and lithe from exercise and strict attention to food intake. Her feelings about her racial mixture was a constant source of unrest for her. Whenever she was thwarted in love she blamed her mixed blood. But she also felt her career goals acted as a shield against any serious personal involvement. As the story unfolds. Emjay is ending a five year relationship with Phil, an account executive, nineteen years her senior. Phil is white, divorced twice and says he will never marry again. Harry Howe, Emjay's brother is a closet alchoholic, who has a high paying job in city government. He and Emjay view their mixed background differently. He says it hasn't prevented him from having anything he really wanted. His skin color is darker than his sister's and he is married to Joan who is darker than he. They have no children. Joan has something of a possessive attitude towards Hal, their next door neighbor because he gave her a set of keys to his apartment so she could look out for his mail when he was out of town. She has tried but has not successfully been able to befriend her sister-in-law, Emjay. She feels Emjay looks down on her because she is less educated and has a darker skin color. Joan can not forgive Emjay these feelings. Hal Braeden is a white, anglo-saxon, self made millionaire who lives in St. Thomas, V.I. half a year and the other half in New York during the football season. Whatever time is left he travels extensively following his favorite team when they are out of town. He is married to Amanda, an attractive black woman ten years his junior. They have a son, Steven who is a miniature of his father. Amanda has a teen-age daughter from a previous relationship. Amanda after seven years with Hal has discovered a whole new world beyond her marriage. Hal introduced her to the world of business and she wants to try it on for size. In New York, Hal lives in the same apartment building as Harry; the same floor; four apartments down the hall. This coincidence accounts for the friendship between Harry and Hal. Hal's idea of an open marriage with freedom to date for both parties, when he is out of town has added a sense of non-caring and boredom to their union.

History professor Ned Brummel is living happily with his partner of twelve years in small-town Maine when he receives a phone call from his estranged friend--Jack--telling him that another friend--Andy--is very ill and possibly near death. As Ned boards a plane to Chicago on his way to his friend's bedside, he embarks on another journey into memory, examining the major events and small moments that have shaped his world and his relationships with these two very different, very important men. Growing up together through the restrictive 1950's and confusing '60's, Jackson "Jack" Grace and Ned Brummel took solace in their love for each other. But once they arrive at college in 1969 and meet handsome farm boy Andy Kowalski, everything changes. Despite Andy's apparent heterosexuality, both Jack and Ned fall hard for him, straining their close friendship. Soon, the three men will become involved in a series of intense liaisons and bitter betrayals, coming together and flying apart, as they alternately hurt, love, shape, and heal one another over the course of years. From the heady, drug- and sex-fueled days of San Francisco in the wild seventies to the haunting spectre of AIDS in the eighties and the righteous activism of the nineties, their relationship transforms and grows, reflecting the changes going on around them. Now, together again in the most crucial and intimate of settings, Ned, Jack, and Andy have another chance to confront the damage of the past and embrace the bonds of friendship and love that have stood the test of time.
