Susanna Kearsley

A New York Times and USA Today Bestseller! Fans of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series will devour this hauntingly beautiful tale of love and time travel by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Susanna Kearsley. History has all but forgotten... In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next bestselling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write. But when she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction, Carrie wonders if she might be dealing with ancestral memory, making her the only living person who knows the truth—the ultimate betrayal—that happened all those years ago, and that knowledge comes very close to destroying her... "Powerful, atmospheric, enthralling, and simply mesmerizing, [The Winter Sea] is one of the best books you'll read this year!" —Singletitles.com "Susanna Kearsley's obvious love of history is infectious... The Winter Sea is an acknowledgement that so many of us are haunted by the deeds of our ancestors, perhaps literally..."—Gail Anderson-Dargatz, international bestselling author of A Recipe for Bees

P. D. Callahan

P.D. Callahan jumps straight into the hardscrabble world of Maine herring fishing in 1972. As he dives deep into the darkness and cruelty of fishing to make money, he realizes that he has walked through a secret doorway, a portal to another reality, a place where knowledge stems from the physical world, the corrosive and creative force of the sea, the emotional act of catching something alive and selling it for food and money, and living to the next day and the next day. But tension strains his recent marriage as his girlfriend-turned-wife struggles with the harshness of their everyday existence. The shared burden of building a house with their own hands, and her job teaching art to 550 students from their dilapidated car, combine to sap her spirit and leave her with little or no energy to create her own art--the paintings that sustain her. Frustrated with harshness of survival and the strictures of small town life, she begins to look elsewhere. At the core of this riveting narrative are the hilarious, and often terrifying, real events which teach this boy-becoming-man about the limits of endurance, love, and the difference between real and imagined fears.

Mari Hill Harpur

Literary Nonfiction. Sports. By Mari Hill Hapur with Eileen Regan McCormack. SEA WINTER SALMON is about a great salmon river, the St. John River on the Lower North Shore of Quebec, and its most important visitor, the illustrious Atlantic salmon. It was the Canadian and American railroad magnate James J. Hill who travelled the Gulf of the St. Lawrence and in 1889 established the log camp that has now been in the family for five generations. A family memoir and a guide to a river's ecology and the life cycle of the Salmo salar, the book is also about what it takes to be a good conservationist in a remote and delicate region. Author and photographer Mari Hill Harpur tracks the special relationship between the salmon and the people of the river through diaries, legal documents, scientific data, rare archival photographs and her own photographic collection. Dramatic, tragic, amusing, and authoritative, SEA WINTER SALMON addresses itself to readers of history, biography, and conservation biology—and to fisher women and men everywhere. "Part memoir, part rhapsody, SEA WINTER SALMON is a fascinating read that brings insight to a beloved tradition. Through it all, the great Atlantic salmon prevails. Mari Hill Harpur illuminates a sport that is also a science, while paying homage to friendships and local expertise. In their role as river stewards, the family's continuing active involvement with salmon restoration programs is inspiring."—Karen Molson

Edward Augustus Rand

Visiting a Life Saving Station on our coast, and passing a night there, I became deeply interested in the work of the hardy crew. I have examined with an absorbing gratification various reports of the Service. We may fittingly have a national pride in the intent and achievement of this department. The element of the heroic runs through and makes luminous the pages of what on the face are only ordinary governmental reports. May the accompanying story interest our young people in the work of the Life Saving Service. While they accept, make theirs, and build upon the principles of honesty, reverence, and temperance laid down in this story, may they extend their sympathy and prayers also to the brave men who watch the sea while we are sleeping, and whose generous daring may well provoke us to courage and self–sacrifice in other spheres.

Jules Verne

Originally serialized between March 1869 and June 1870, Jules Verne’s “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” is one of the greatest underwater sea adventures of all time. It is the story of Professor Pierre Aronnax who sets off aboard an American frigate to investigate a series of attacks, which has been reported to be made by an amphibious monster. The monster in question is actually the submarine vessel the ‘Nautilus,’ which is commanded by the eccentric Captain Nemo. When the Nautilus destroys the Professor’s ship, he is taken prisoner by Captain Nemo along with his trusted servant Conseil and the frigate’s harpooner Ned Land. What follows for the three is a tale of great adventure and scientific wonder. An early pioneer of science fiction, Jules Verne’s work is noted for its prediction of scientific advancements. In the case of “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” Verne accurately forecasted the development of submarine vessels. It is at once a harbinger of technology to come and captivating tale of adventure which has delighted readers ever since its original publication. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper, is translated by F. P. Walter, and illustrated by Milo Winter.
