Falling for "Maddening Moira" O'Malley was the unexpected highlight of Luke O'Brien's Dublin holiday. So when she pays a surprise visit to Chesapeake Shores, Luke is thrilled…at first. A fling with this wild Irish rose is one thing, but forever? Maybe someday, but not when he's totally focused on establishing a business that will prove his mettle to his overachieving family. Given Luke's reaction, Moira has some soul-searching of her own to do. Scarred by her father's abandonment, she wonders if Luke, with his playboy past, is truly the family man she longs for. Adding to her dilemma, she's offered an amazing chance at a dream career of her own. Deep down, though, Moira knows home is the real prize, and that love can be every bit as enchanted as a summer garden.

The epic and monumental love story Paullina Simons began with her adored international bestseller The Bronze Horseman comes to a breathtaking conclusion. The Summer Garden is the third volume in Simons’s magnificent trilogy—a Russian Thorn Birds—which follows a love that survived the terrible siege of Leningrad during World War Two, a heartbreaking separation and a glorious reunion in America, only to be supremely tested by the hatred, fear, and uncertainty of the Cold War. You will never forget the lovers Tatiana and Alexander and their story of enduring love and commitment, and you will cherish every moment spent in The Summer Garden.
Tatiana & Alexander have suffered the worst the 20th century had to offer & miraculously survived to be reunited in America, the land of their dreams. They have proved to each other that their love is greater than the vast evil of the world. They're young, they're beautiful, they have a son, but they are strangers.

With the Cold War rising, dark forces at work in their adopted country threaten their lives, their family, and their hard-won peace. To regain the happiness they once knew, to wash away the lingering pain of the past, two lovers grown distant must somehow forge a new life . . .or watch the ghosts of their yesterdays destroy their firstborn son.

This vivid, moving and provocative novel presents a story of a whole society caught up in national turmoil, told through the experiences of one family, the Shubins. Their city is Leningrad, and the country Russia, but their story of love and heartbreak is universal. Starting with Hitler's invasion of the Soviet Union on 22 June 1941, the novel moves both back and forward in time, following three generations of the family as they face the horrors of war, political upheaval, imprisonment and famine. Their experiences are harsh, but their spirit remains undaunted and their family ties unbreakable. The legacy of hardship never quite relaxes its grip, but what endures is their humanity.
"For the residents of Haddon Junction, who had brought in the New Year with the usual revelry and celebration, there was scant reason to expect 1959 to not come and go pretty much like any other year-with little of any consequence to remember it for. For some, though, and especially for Mick Neilson, now seventeen years old, it would be a year to never forget." This is a coming of age story; it is a love story-a story of loves gained, loves lost, and loves unconditional. It is the story of Mick Neilson, the Circle of Life, the Summer Garden, and a song.
New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods proves once more that home is always where the heart is.

You know that summer, right… the summer where EVERYTHING changed? Orange Juice in Bishop's Garden (OJBG) is that summer. And Bishop's Garden is the place where it all happened. It's the summer of '94 and naive and rebellious teens are engaging in all kinds of underage tomfoolery. Think grunge, Doc Martens, raves, the invincibility of youth, and epic first loves. This book details the lives of a group of teenagers navigating high school and growing up in DC during the 1990’s. It's all about teen magic-- creating new and marvelous mischief with best friends, listening to mix-tapes and reading Sassy magazines, missing the last Metro, and getting stuck miles from payphones. Accompany the young heroine, Sarah, as she gets herself into idle summer misbehaving, love triangle betrayals, and friendship fallouts. This is a story about what her life is like before school's truly over and she knows it's all going to change for good. It's about the friends she'll never forget, those first mistakes, and h er childish dreams not yet polluted by reality. She and her friends will engage in typical teen idolatry of hot musicians and renegades. They'll set each other up and tear each other down. They'll crash house parties and realize that sometimes in life, there are no 'do-overs.' They'll steal cars, candy, and hearts. They'll make you wish you were a teen again. This book contains the full collection of scripts from season one of the oldest and longest running teen web series, Orange Juice in Bishop's Garden. It's part recollection, part urban legend, and part pure fiction, and completely inspired by the author's memories of growing up in DC and the enchantment of her youth. The author, Otessa Ghadar, captures teen life as it is lived--dramatic, filled with self-discovery, and the pain of growing up. Together, as a whole, the stories and the characters ring true. Read the book and you'll realize you've either been-- or known-- one of these characters before. Venture into Bishop's Garden and remember what it feels like to have your whole life ahead of you! Best part is, when you're done reading, you can meet the characters by watching the webseries adaptation online (www.OJinBG.com). Good luck!

Meanwhile Hanna, Lissbeg's librarian, is unaware of the turmoil in her daughter's life - until her ex-husband Malcolm makes an appearance and she begins to wonder if the secrets she's carried for him might have harmed Jazz more than she'd realised.
