She thought she left her darkest nightmare worlds away in the Australian outback. Now, terror will push her to the edge.... Shut down by the grief of losing the man she loved, Tally Nowata has come home to pursue the search-and-rescue work that is her passion. When a crank phone call leads Tally and a friend to the top of a treacherous peak, it is the start of a violent game that will force Tally not only to the heights of danger in Wyoming's Grand Tetons, but to the brink of sanity in a race to the death. A lethal predator is closing in on Tally. He's dead set on revenge -- and he's targeted the one thing Tally can't survive without: her child. Hannah Nyala, the real-life tracker who introduced Tally Nowata in the electrifying novel Leave No Trace, brilliantly defines a woman's determination to embrace life after her spirit is shattered -- and crafts a nail-biting chase across a hazardous landscape, where no one can rescue the rescuer.

In 1939, young English naval signalman Geoffrey Holder-Jones began his career by surviving a German mine attack in the Thames estuary. World War II took him as naval officer to Iceland, the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, and the United States. Commissioned as a naval officer and given command of his own ship, Jones then patrolled the waters off Canada and Newfoundland before returning to Britain in 1944. This true story, written on the basis of personal conversations and a scrapbook entrusted to the author 60 years after the war, illuminates one of the great achievements of the war the beating of the German U-boat blockade of the American coast by squadrons of Allied ships that were little more than motley collections of armed trawlers and whalers. With a sense of humor and decency that sustained him through the ordeals of convoy duty in the Arctic Ocean, Signalman Jones has related his story to Tim Parker with vivid observations and an eye for the absurd.

Like the bestsellers Princess and Not Without My Daughter, Do They Hear You When You Cry? tells the dramatic, compulsively readable story of a woman fighting to free herself from the injustices of her culture. Fauziya Kassindja's harrowing story begins in Togo, Africa, where she enjoyed a sheltered childhood, shielded by her progressive father from the tribal practice of polygamy and genital mutilation. But when her father died in 1993, Fauziya's life changed dramatically. At the age of seventeen, she was forced to marry a man she barely knew who already had three wives, and prepare for the tribal ritual practice of genital mutilation - a practice that is performed without painkillers or antibiotics. But hours before the ritual was to take place, Fauziya's sister helped her escape to Germany, and from there she travelled to the United States seeking asylum - and freedom. Instead she was stripped, shackled and imprisoned for sixteen months by the Immigration and Naturalization Service. Enter Layli Miller Bashir, a twenty-three-year-old law student who took on Fauziya's case. When the two women met, Layli found a broken, emaciated girl with whom she forged an extraordinary friendship. Putting her heart into Fauziya's case, Layli enlisted help from the American University International Human Rights Clinic. The clinic's acting director Karen Musalo, an expert in refugee law, assembled a team to fight on Fauziya's behalf. Ultimately, in a landmark decision that has given hope to many seeking asylum on the grounds of gender-based persecution, Fauziya was granted asylum on 13 June 1996. Here, for the first time, is Fauziya's dramatic personal story, told in her own words, vividly detailing her life as a young woman in Togo and her nightmarish day-to-day existence in American prisons. It is a story of faith and freedom, courage and inspiration - one that you will not easily forget.

The story The Little Angel and the Three Wisdoms begins in heaven and travels to earth, ending up back in heaven. Follow the adventures of a nervous young trainee angel, conscientious but fallible, as he travels to earth to shadow Three Wisdoms (the three dimensions of the girl Sophia). But before he can get back to heaven, he misplaces his trumpet. Everything starts with a recapitulation of the creation of the universe by a very bored God. You see, God has got nothing better to do because He has seen it all. God loves music, especially Bach and Mozart's piano concerto slow movements. Meanwhile, the little angel, still scared and a bit fumbling, is tussling with the love affairs of three willful and flighty girls. The angel gets back his trumpet and God sends his peace messages to humankind by email (with a bit of help from his nerds). In the end, God is quite pleased with his creation and his erring creatures as they are led astray by their dragons and their free will, saved by His forgiving love and the amazing grace of music.Catherine Farrar was born and raised in Derry and Donegal, Ireland, which will forever affect my outlook and language, not least my love of music and the music of words. For this and much else, I owe a great debt to my parents, Tom and Agnes Finnegan, to my brothers and sister who are still there, and to our wonderful three daughters, their husbands, and their children, who I hope will one day read and enjoy these stories.

Seven year old Sarah Martin kept secrets to herself, never telling her mother. When her father received a letter from his brother to come and live at his house in Sunnyvale, Vermont, she didn't want to go. She had a bad feeling about the move. That night as she got ready for bed, her father came to tuck her in, but as he bent down to kiss her goodnight, she pulled away, afraid of him. She'd seen a dark shadow in her dreams, thought it was her father. She was terrified of him. He was furious and told her he was her father and could give her a kiss anytime he wished. She would not let her father hurt her or her mother again as he had before and Sarah would make sure that all men pay for what they did.
