Détails: In Winter Solstice Rosamunde Pilcher brings her readers into the lives of five very different people.... Elfrida Phipps, once of London's stage, moved to the English village of Dibton in hopes of making a new life for herself. Gradually she settled into the comfortable familiarity of village life -- shopkeepers knowing her tastes, neighbors calling her by name -- still she finds herself lonely. Oscar Blundell gave up his life as a musician in order to marry Gloria. They have a beautiful daughter, Francesca, and it is only because of their little girl that Oscar views his sacrificed career as worthwhile. Carrie returns from Austria at the end of an ill-fated affair with a married man to find her mother and aunt sharing a home and squabbling endlessly. With Christmas approaching, Carrie agrees to look after her aunt's awkward and quiet teenage daughter, Lucy, so that her mother might enjoy a romantic fling in America. Sam Howard is trying to pull his life back together after his wife has left him for another. He is without home and without roots, all he has is his job. Business takes him to northern Scotland, where he falls in love with the lush, craggy landscape and set his sights on a house. It is the strange rippling effects of a tragedy that will bring these five characters together in a large, neglected estate house near the Scottish fishing town of Creagan. It is in this house, on the shortest day of the year, that the lives of five people will come together and be forever changed. Rosamunde Pilcher's long-awaited return to the page will warm the hearts of readers both old and new. Winter Solstice is a novel of love, loyalty and rebirth.

Détails: Seventeen-year-old Ailia has vowed to find out if her recurring mare dreams, of what she thinks are glimpses into her previous life, are real. In her dreams, she is married to her soul mate, and an evil Empress named Eiess pursues and kills her. Lucia, the heir of the Northlandic Kingdom, will be crowned Sun Queen - the Queen responsible for shifting the seasons each solstice. The eve before Lucia's eighteenth birthday and coronation, Eiess storms the castle, taking Lucia and her Father prisoner. Eiess immediately instigates the prophesied three-year winter before the end of Midgard when she usurps the throne. One day, and unbeknownst to her - nearly two years later - Ailia wakes up in a glacier cave cold, beaten, and far away from home. She doesn't remember how she ended up there or even that she was abducted by the ruthless Vikings. When a healer named Soren rescues her, Ailia can't help but think that she knows him from somewhere, and that they were fated to meet - and destined to fall in love. And when Ailia, Lucia and Soren discover a shocking secret that intertwines their destinies, one of them betrays the other two - a betrayal that ultimately puts their lives, and the lives of humanity, in which they had sworn to protect, in grave danger.

Détails: Bilford, New Hampshire, so named for the Bilford family, is home to shipping magnate Gordon Andrew Bilford III. To the world, Gordon is a powerful businessman, a man of wealth, taste, and decorum, and sadly, a man who has recently become a widower. Gordon is also a man with secrets. The House of Bilford cloaks the secrets of a dark power within his family. A power passed as a gift from father to son. A gift Gordon desperately wants to return. Enter the Irish minx, Colleen (Call-een) O’Malley, niece of Gordon’s nearest neighbors, and dearest friends, Shaun and Fran O’Malley. Colleen is soft-spoken, well educated, cultured—and a stunning red-headed beauty, with secrets of her own, who has been sent on a mission to the House of Bilford. Although Gordon has just lost his wife, Colleen appears determined to capture Gordon’s attention. As Colleen is more and more successful with her endeavors, Gordon is inexplicably drawn not only to Colleen’s charms and grace but to her seemingly mysterious knowledge of Gordon’s alter ego. Although not a part of her plan, Colleen has found herself equally drawn to Gordon. Will their passion lead them to heaven, or to hell on earth?

Détails: In bestseller Elin Hilderbrand's first Christmas novel, a family gathers on Nantucket for a holiday filled with surprises. Kelley Quinn is the owner of Nantucket's Winter Street Inn and the proud father of four, all of them grown and living in varying states of disarray. Patrick, the eldest, is a hedge fund manager with a guilty conscience. Kevin, a bartender, is secretly sleeping with a French housekeeper named Isabelle. Ava, a school teacher, is finally dating the perfect guy but can't get him to commit. And Bart, the youngest and only child of Kelley's second marriage to Mitzi, has recently shocked everyone by joining the Marines. As Christmas approaches, Kelley is looking forward to getting the family together for some quality time at the inn. But when he walks in on Mitzi kissing Santa Claus (or the guy who's playing Santa at the inn's annual party), utter chaos descends. With the three older children each reeling in their own dramas and Bart unreachable in Afghanistan, it might be up to Kelley's ex-wife, nightly news anchor Margaret Quinn, to save Christmas at the Winter Street Inn. Before the mulled cider is gone, the delightfully dysfunctional Quinn family will survive a love triangle, an unplanned pregnancy, a federal crime, a small house fire, many shots of whiskey, and endless rounds of Christmas caroling, in this heart-warming novel about coming home for the holidays.

Détails: When a vampire moves in with a witch, the holiday gets more interesting. Keta Latimer returned to her hometown with a mission, only to get sidetracked by a gorgeous witch. Unfortunately, Keta’s past has taught her that witches and vampires don’t mix, so she puts her romantic hopes aside. Still, when the magical woman offers her spare bedroom as a temporary place to crash, Keta finds herself getting cozy with her new roommate and maybe overstaying her welcome. Roe Fowler never thought the woman she saved six years ago would reappear on her doorstep looking like a golden goddess and offering heartfelt thanks. Roe should have accepted the kind words and waved goodbye. Instead, she invites the vampire into her home. The newcomer’s daily presence brings Roe joy, but she senses there are wounds beneath Keta’s skin that even her witchy healing powers can’t fix. As the Winter Solstice approaches, the tension between the two paranormal housemates increases. On the longest night of the year, a vampire and a witch will have to confront a painful past and choose whether to let the magic of Yule forge a lasting connection or part when the sun rises.

Détails: "Happy Holidays 2015! It has been a rough year for the Quinns, but I would like to start by saying thank you for all of the well wishes and positive missives sent our way." A second Christmas on Nantucket finds Winter Street Inn owner Kelley Quinn reflecting on the past year as he writes a holiday letter to friends and family. Though the year has had its share of misfortune and worry, the Quinns have much to celebrate. Kelley, now single, at least is on better terms with his first wife Margaret, who is using her celebrity to lure customers to the inn in record numbers. Their son Kevin has a beautiful new baby, Genevieve, with the Inn's French housekeeper, Isabelle; and their daughter, Ava, is finally dating a nice guy--her devoted colleague, Scott. Now the Quinns are looking forward to celebrating Genevieve's baptism, welcoming Isabelle to the family, and enjoying the cheer of Nantucket's traditional Christmas Stroll. But just when a peaceful family gathering seems within reach, Kelley's estranged second wife, Mitzi, shows up on the island after souring on her relationship with the inn's former Santa Claus. Soon Kelley isn't the only Quinn entertaining a surprise guest from Christmases past as lovers old and new gather beneath the mistletoe. With jealousy, passion, and eggnog consumption at an all-time high, it's going to take a whole lot more than a Christmas miracle to get the Quinns--and the inn--through the holidays intact.

Détails: Rosamunde Pilcher's worldwide best-sellers, The Shell Seekers, September, and Coming Home, enchanted millions with their beguiling descriptions of the coasts of Cornwall, the Highlands of Scotland, and the society of London. Now, in this lavishly illustrated, full-color book, Rosamunde Pilcher invites people to share with her the breathtaking views and tranquil places that have inspired her writing. Rosamunde Pilcher's journey begins in Cornwall where she grew up. The dreamy villages, stout cottages, and beautiful gardens of her childhood stand out amidst the artists' studios, galleries, and cafes. This is the landscape that readers of the Shell Seekers, The Empty House, and Coming Home know and love. Then there is the world of September and Wild Mountain Thyme--Rosamunde Pilcher's Scotland. Her home after marriage, the Scottish hills overflow with heather and clear streams running with trout. It's a place of country houses and annual balls that preserve the warmth of family and a stately pace of life. London has always been a welcome contrast to Rosamunde Pilcher's peaceful country life: socializing in the elegant Kensington town houses, afternoon tea at the Ritz, and parties in Chelsea are all familiar rituals that evoke the mood of a time now past. With an introduction by the author, snapshots from family albums, mouth-watering recipes from her own kitchen, and extracts from her unforgettable novels and short stories, the World of Rosamunde Pilcher will be treasured by her millions of loyal fans. Moreover, as with Rosamunde Pilcher's novels, the beautiful places within these covers are testaments to the gorgeous landscape and glorious cultural heritage of Britain.

Détails: Paranormal Romance, Fantasy Romance Powerful, immortal, magikal and cursed to the shadows of the night. Gordon O’Caha, a seven-hundred-year-old druid sorcerer, fell in battle centuries ago. When he recovered, he found he wasn’t as he’d once been, purely magik. He was much, much more. Now, he shares his body with darkness—a demon gifted to him by the blood drinkers he’d been attacked by. His family and clan haven’t turned their back on him. It’s Gordon who has shut himself away from them. This hardened man does what he has to in order to survive—he drinks blood, feeds his sexual lust and exists. Nothing more. That is, until a sassy slip of a woman careens into him on the street, spilling her hot coco all over his groin. It’s literally hotter than he can handle. The minx isn’t what she appears to be and when her secrets are revealed, so is a dangerous plot. Chelsy Riley is doing her best to get by. Her grandmother’s passing left her without family and with a tiny used bookstore to run. She thinks it’s as hectic as it can get. When she slams into a sexy, gruff man who seems oddly out of time and place, she learns what secrets her past holds and that her future is full of endless possibilities. That is, only if she doesn’t become a sacrifice for dark mages.

He has to marry a highborn Azrimaran noblewoman to seal the treaty. Fate conspires to throw Nadelma and Halvor into each other’s company and the attraction is instant and deep but both resist the attraction. She knows she can never have him for herself. He must fulfill the treaty to secure a safe place for his people to live, since their holding in the Dales was destroyed by the black magic of the Shadow. Marriage to a noble damsel of the king’s choice is his fate. Until he met Nadelma he thought his heart was frozen by the loss of all he cared for, back in the Dales. Now he knows better but his people must come first. The situation is hopeless…or is it? For the king declares the city will celebrate Winter Solstice and hold a ball, where wishes and dreams just might come true. WINTER SOLSTICE DREAM is a novella in the Magic of Claddare world, which began with THE CAPTIVE SHIFTER.

Détails: The New York Times bestselling sequel to Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli’s modern-day classic Stargirl, now an original film on Disney+! Love, Stargirl picks up a year after Stargirl ends and reveals the new life of the beloved character who moved away so suddenly at the end of Stargirl. The novel takes the form of "the world's longest letter," in diary form, going from date to date through a little more than a year's time. In her writing, Stargirl mixes memories of her bittersweet time in Mica, Arizona, with involvements with new people in her life. In Love, Stargirl, we hear the voice of Stargirl herself as she reflects on time, life, Leo, and - of course - love. “Spinelli is a poet of the prepubescent. . . . No writer guides his young characters, and his readers, past these pitfalls and challenges and toward their futures with more compassion.” —The New York Times

Détails: A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! AS HEARD ON NPR MORNING EDITION AND ON BEING WITH KRISTA TIPPETT “Katherine May opens up exactly what I and so many need to hear but haven't known how to name.” —Krista Tippett, On Being “Every bit as beautiful and healing as the season itself. . . . This is truly a beautiful book.” —Elizabeth Gilbert "Proves that there is grace in letting go, stepping back and giving yourself time to repair in the dark...May is a clear-eyed observer and her language is steady, honest and accurate—capturing the sense, the beauty and the latent power of our resting landscapes." —Wall Street Journal An intimate, revelatory book exploring the ways we can care for and repair ourselves when life knocks us down. Sometimes you slip through the cracks: unforeseen circumstances like an abrupt illness, the death of a loved one, a break up, or a job loss can derail a life. These periods of dislocation can be lonely and unexpected. For May, her husband fell ill, her son stopped attending school, and her own medical issues led her to leave a demanding job. Wintering explores how she not only endured this painful time, but embraced the singular opportunities it offered. A moving personal narrative shot through with lessons from literature, mythology, and the natural world, May's story offers instruction on the transformative power of rest and retreat. Illumination emerges from many sources: solstice celebrations and dormice hibernation, C.S. Lewis and Sylvia Plath, swimming in icy waters and sailing arctic seas. Ultimately Wintering invites us to change how we relate to our own fallow times. May models an active acceptance of sadness and finds nourishment in deep retreat, joy in the hushed beauty of winter, and encouragement in understanding life as cyclical, not linear. A secular mystic, May forms a guiding philosophy for transforming the hardships that arise before the ushering in of a new season.
