A novel “as haunting as a dream” from the New York Times-bestselling, Newbery Medal-winning author of The Giver (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). Where do dreams come from? What stealthy nighttime messengers are the guardians of our most deeply hidden hopes and our half-forgotten fears? This imaginative novel confronts these questions and explores the conflicts between the gentle bits and pieces of the past that come to life in dream, and the darker horrors that find their form in nightmare. In a haunting story that tiptoes between reality and fantasy, two people—a lonely, sensitive woman and a damaged, angry boy—face their own histories and discover what they can be to one another, renewed by the strength that comes from a tiny, caring creature they will never see. “Lyrical, richly descriptive prose ushers readers into a fascinating parallel world inhabited by appealingly quirky characters.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “A beautiful novel with an intriguing premise.”—School Library Journal (starred review)

From the national bestselling author of Truly a Wife comes a wonderful and tender romance set in nineteenth-century San Francisco. When wealthy businessman James Craig was awakened by heartrending weeping in the night, he thought he was reliving his painful past. But what he found was not his worst nightmare, but a beautiful and fragile dream, who made him yearn for a future...with her... Frightened and in desperate straits, Elizabeth Sadler arrived in San Francisco full of hope for a new life. But her hope was destroyed when she found herself alone and penniless. Then, like an angel in the night, an enegmatic stranger heard her cries, gave her comfort--and offered her a job as governess to his four daughters. In his eyes, she saw a love that promised her heaven. But angry whispers surround him--and keep him and his family separate from a town too prejudiced and suspicious to accept them. The ugly rumors, and the shadows of a past tragedy threaten to create an impenetrable barrier between James and Elizabeth. To love him, she must find the courage to stand by him, in the face of an ignorant and fearful society, and her own secret doubts... Includes a preview of the sequel, A Wanted Man.

Kagero Nikki, translated here as The Gossamer Years, belongs to the same period as the celebrated Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikuibu. This remarkably frank autobiographical diary and personal confession attempts to describe a difficult relationship as it reveals two tempestuous decades of the author's unhappy marriage and her growing indignation at rival wives and mistresses. Too impetuous to be satisfied as a subsidiary wife, this beautiful (and unnamed) noblewoman of the Heian dynasty protests the marriage system of her time in one of Japanese literature's earliest attempts to portray difficult elements of the predominant social hierarchy. A classic work of early Japanese prose, The Gossamer Years is an important example of the development of Heian literature, which, at its best, represents an extraordinary flowering of realistic expression, an attempt, unique for its age, to treat the human condition with frankness and honesty. A timeless and intimate glimpse into the culture of ancient Japan, this translation by Edward Seidensticker paints a revealing picture of married life in the Heian period.

A SPY. AN AIRSHIP. AND A BROKEN HEART. After losing her husband to a rogue French agent, Charlotte Moncrieffe wants to make her mark in international espionage. And what could be better for recovering secret long-lost documents from the Palais Garnier than her stealth dirigible, Gossamer Wing? Her spymaster father has one condition: He won’t send her to Paris without an ironclad cover. Dexter Hardison prefers inventing to politics, but his title as Makesmith Baron and his formidable skills make him an ideal husband-imposter for Charlotte. And the unorthodox undercover arrangement would help him in his own field of discovery. But from Charlotte and Dexter’s marriage of convenience comes a distraction—a passion that complicates an increasingly dangerous mission. For Charlotte, however, the thought of losing Dexter also opens her heart to a thrilling new future of love and adventure.

When a man is found dead in his run-down trailer home, Annalise inherits the trailer, along with the pictures, vintage obituaries, and old revival posters covering its walls. As she sorts through the collection, she's wholly unprepared for the ramifications of the dark and deadly secrets she'll uncover. A century earlier, Gossamer Grove has been stirred into chaos by the arrival of controversial and charismatic twin revivalists. The chaos takes a murderous turn when Libby Sheffield, working at her father's newspaper, receives an obituary for a reputable church deacon hours before his death. As she works with the deacon's son to unravel the mystery behind the crime, it becomes undeniably clear that a reckoning has come to town--but it isn't until another obituary arrives that they realize the true depths of the danger they've waded into. Two women, separated by a hundred years, must uncover the secrets within the borders of their own town before it's too late and they lose their future--or their very souls.

WHEN A BUTTERFLY FLAPS ITS WINGS... THE WORLD CAN NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN The 'Chosen Ones' originate from Kyrgyzstan at the very epicentre of the 'axis of evil'. They have been ruthlessly prepared from birth for the ultimate strike against humanity. Their controlling masters are the incredibly wealthy and influential Potamus group of industrialists, financiers, politicians and global figure-heads. Should it succeed, this ultimate strike will result in genocide of untold and unprecedented proportions... it will also result in absolute world domination for the already over-privileged few. All that stands in their way is an unlikely group of recovering drug addicts and alcoholics who, on their own journey through life, inhabit a totally different and parallel reality. Inexorably this band of ne'er do wells are drawn into the web of international intrigue and, as the web closes ever more tightly, their own group: Gossamer begins to evolve. With only their native wit and network of friends to call upon it is Gossamer who, ironically and of necessity, become the last hope for the salvation of mankind. If they fail the world will never be the same again...
