“A diamond that shines among the pearls.” —All About Romance on The Weaver Takes a Wife Four witty and romantic Regency frolics suitable for all ages. THE WEAVER TAKES A WIFE Haughty Lady Helen Radney is one of Regency London’s most beautiful women and the daughter of a duke, but her sharp tongue has frightened away most of her suitors. When the duke loses his fortune, he turns to his last remaining asset: his daughter. Enter Mr. Ethan Brundy, once an illegitimate workhouse orphan, now owner of a Lancashire cotton mill and one of the richest men in England. When he glimpses Lady Helen at the theatre, he is instantly smitten and vows to marry her. But this commonest of commoners will have his work cut out for him if he hopes to win the heart of his aristocratic bride… BRIGHTON HONEYMOON Sir Aubrey Tabor began with the most altruistic of motives. When the Brundys’ seaside wedding trip is interrupted by a young woman claiming to be Mr. Brundy’s sister, Sir Aubrey promises to do what he can to relieve his friend of an imposter whose presence poses a threat to marital bliss. But Polly Hampton proves to be more than a match for Sir Aubrey, and with each encounter, he finds himself thinking less of his friend’s honeymoon, and more about having one of his own… FRENCH LEAVE Forced by bankruptcy and scandal into exile in France, Lord Waverly expects never to return to his homeland until, staggering home from a gaming hell before dawn, he encounters a young novice escaping a convent. Waverly reluctantly agrees to take her to her English grandfather. Alas, he soon realizes the enormity of his task. When he delivers the irrepressible Lisette to her grandfather’s home only to discover that the man is dead, Waverly is left with no alternative but to offer her the protection of his name. But this marriage of convenience is likely to prove very inconvenient indeed… THE DESPERATE DUKE When his father’s death makes 23-year-old Theodore Radney the Duke of Reddington, the weight of his new responsibilities is enough to send him to London in a panic. Soon Theo has accumulated a pile of debts—and can’t touch his inheritance until his father’s will is probated. His brother-in-law, Ethan Brundy, agrees to lend him the money, if Theo will work in the mill until probate is granted. Daphne Drinkard and her mother are forced to take in boarders after the death of her father. When a Parliamentary candidate hires a room for a series of meetings, Daphne sees her last chance to salvage their fortunes. Still, she’s far more intrigued by the newest resident. Mr. Tisdale is obviously a gentleman—but why would a gentleman be working in a mill?

Beyond their status as classic children’s stories, Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books play a significant role in American culture that most people cannot begin to appreciate. Millions of children have sampled the books in school; played out the roles of Laura and Mary; or visited Wilder homesites with their parents, who may be fans themselves. Yet, as Anita Clair Fellman shows, there is even more to this magical series with its clear emotional appeal: a covert political message that made many readers comfortable with the resurgence of conservatism in the Reagan years and beyond. In Little House, Long Shadow, a leading Wilder scholar offers a fresh interpretation of the Little House books that examines how this beloved body of children’s literature found its way into many facets of our culture and consciousness—even influencing the responsiveness of Americans to particular political views. Because both Wilder and her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane, opposed the New Deal programs being implemented during the period in which they wrote, their books reflect their use of family history as an argument against the state’s protection of individuals from economic uncertainty. Their writing emphasized the isolation of the Ingalls family and the family’s resilience in the face of crises and consistently equated self-sufficiency with family acceptance, security, and warmth. Fellman argues that the popularity of these books—abetted by Lane’s overtly libertarian views—helped lay the groundwork for a negative response to big government and a positive view of political individualism, contributing to the acceptance of contemporary conservatism while perpetuating a mythic West. Beyond tracing the emergence of this influence in the relationship between Wilder and her daughter, Fellman explores the continuing presence of the books—and their message—in modern cultural institutions from classrooms to tourism, newspaper editorials to Internet message boards. Little House, Long Shadow shows how ostensibly apolitical artifacts of popular culture can help explain shifts in political assumptions. It is a pioneering look at the dissemination of books in our culture that expands the discussion of recent political transformations—and suggests that sources other than political rhetoric have contributed to Americans’ renewed appreciation of individualist ideals.

From an award-winning author, a novel about a Vietnamese American family’s ties to The Little House on the Prairie Jobless with a PhD, Lee Lien returns home to her Chicago suburb from grad school, only to find herself contending with issues she’s evaded since college. But when her brother disappears, he leaves behind an object from their mother’s Vietnam past that stirs up a forgotten childhood dream: a gold-leaf brooch, abandoned by an American reporter in Saigon back in 1965, that might be an heirloom belonging to Laura Ingalls Wilder. As Lee explores the tenuous facts of this connection, she unearths more than expected—a trail of clues and enticements that lead her from the dusty stacks of library archives to hilarious prairie life reenactments and ultimately to San Francisco, where her findings will transform strangers’ lives as well as her own. A dazzling literary mystery about the true origins of a time-tested classic, Pioneer Girl is also the deeply moving tale of a second-generation Vietnamese daughter, the parents she struggles to honor, the missing brother she is expected to bring home—even as her discoveries yield dramatic insights that will free her to live her own life to its full potential.
