Können Träume glücklich machen? Eine Mutter zeigt ihrer Tochter den Weg, ihre wahren Träume zu verwirklichen. Ein berührender Roman über die eine Liebe, die uns ein Leben lang nicht verlässt. Wer verscheucht die Monster aus unseren Albträumen? Wer tröstet uns bei Liebeskummer? Und wer kennt uns besser, als wir uns selber kennen? Als Brett 14 Jahre alt war, hatte sie noch große Pläne für ihr Leben, festgehalten auf einer Liste mit Lebenszielen. Heute, mit 34 Jahren, ist die Liste vergessen und Brett mit dem zufrieden, was sie hat: einen Freund, einen Job, eine schicke Wohnung. Doch als ihre Mutter Elizabeth stirbt, taucht die Liste wieder auf: Aus dem Mülleimer gefischt, hat ihre Mutter die Liste aufgehoben, und deren Erfüllung zur Bedingung gemacht, damit Brett ihr Erbe erhält – und zwar innerhalb von 12 Monaten. Aber Brett ist nicht mehr das Mädchen von damals. Ein Baby bekommen? Das hat sie schon lange ad acta gelegt. Ein Pferd kaufen? In ihrer Wohnung sind nicht mal Haustiere erlaubt. Eine gute Beziehung zu ihrem Vater aufbauen? Ha – der ist seit sieben Jahren tot. Sich verlieben? Die einzig wahre, große Liebe gibt es doch nur im Film. Um sie bei der Erfüllung ihrer Ziele zu unterstützen, hat ihre Mutter Brett mehrere Briefe hinterlassen. Wütend, enttäuscht und verletzt liest Brett den ersten Brief – und ist überwältigt von der liebevollen und fürsorglichen Nachricht ihrer Mutter, die gespürt hat, dass Brett in ihrem Leben nicht glücklich ist. Die Briefe ihrer Mutter rufen Brett dazu auf, ihre Träume nicht aufzugeben und ihr Leben in die Hand zu nehmen – denn nur sie selbst kann es ändern ... Kann Elizabeth ihrer Tochter dabei helfen, sich selbst wiederzufinden?

She had thought then that there was no man more handsome in the room. She had stepped willingly into his arms, and when the music had begun, she had drifted, following his lead. They had moved together without conscious thought. As if the two of them had been created to dance together…. Would they ever do that again…? Don't miss Gayle Wilson's extraordinary tale!

Best-selling author Charity Anderson returns to her hometown of Kings Meadow to defeat a bad case of writer's block. She imagines she’ll spend a lonely summer writing and then return to her home in Boise.

These short stories are set primarily in the farmland of County Antrim in Northern Ireland during the author=s youth in the nineteen forties and fifties, but some feature Scots Irish in America and England during that same period. County Antrim has strong residual connections to Scotland that are reflected in the manner of speech and in the social values that the author experienced during his youthChard work, religious belief and valuing family connections. Long before television entered the home, family and neighborhood get-togethers were common, often around the hearth fire, especially in the winter months. During those times it was common for older members to mention their escapades in not just the Second World War but the First World War and even the Boer War. The very human lives of these wholesome people, their sorrow, happiness, humor and futility, are picturesquely captured in the author=s sensitive, homespun stories.

Gretchen Kohler is an Amana storekeeper's daughter with a secret passion for writing. But artistic pursuits are frowned upon in her conservative Amana village, so she confines her poems and stories to her journals, letting only close friends read them. When a young reporter comes into her store, she believes she's found a kindred spirit. She shares a few of her stories with him--only to have her trust betrayed in the worst of ways, resulting in trouble for her entire community. The scandal is made even worse by the fact that gypsies have camped nearby and seem to be preying upon the Amanans' compassionate, pacifist nature. Will Gretchen lose her job, her reputation, and the love of her childhood beau all because of one bad decision?
