Edge Of Eternity Deluxe from the Author: Ken Follett. Ken Follett's extraordinary historical epic, the Century Trilogy, reaches its sweeping, passionate conclusion. In Fall of Giants and Winter of the World, Ken Follett followed the fortunes of five international families—American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh—as they made their way through the twentieth century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the 1960s through the 1980s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements, and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution—and rock and roll. East German teacher Rebecca Hoffmann discovers she’s been spied on by the Stasi for years and commits an impulsive act that will affect her family for the rest of their lives. . . . George Jakes, the child of a mixed-race couple, bypasses a corporate law career to join Robert F. Kennedy's Justice Department and finds himself in the middle of not only the seminal events of the civil rights battle but a much more personal battle of his own. . . . Cameron Dewar, the grandson of a senator, jumps at the chance to do some official and unofficial espionage for a cause he believes in, only to discover that the world is a much more dangerous place than he'd imagined. . . . Dimka Dvorkin, a young aide to Nikita Khrushchev, becomes an agent both for good and for ill as the United States and the Soviet Union race to the brink of nuclear war, while his twin sister, Tanya, carves out a role that will take her from Moscow to Cuba to Prague to Warsaw—and into history.

Listen To Your Head from the Author: Janice Gilley. Raegan Palmer has a fulfilling life in New York City. She lives in a great Manhattan apartment in the same building as her best friend, Annie, and she’s working her way up the ladder in the world of fabric design. Suddenly, she finds out that she’s won some sort of contest at work and is to receive a weeklong, all-expenses-paid trip to a deluxe Montana ski lodge. The only problem is that she doesn’t remember hearing anything about a contest, and she doesn’t ski! But it’s a paid vacation, so why not? Shortly after her arrival at The Blue Spruce Lodge, she hears a deep voice behind her and immediately recognizes it from her past. In a panic, she tells herself to book a plane back to New York and get out of there before he sees her. However, she soon finds out that he owns the ski lodge and is the one behind this whole mystery vacation in the first place. How did he find her? What does he want? Her head is telling her to get out of there—now!—but her heart seems to have other plans. Which one will win out—her head or her heart?

Listening Is An Act Of Love from the Author: Dave Isay. As heard on NPR, a wondrous nationwide celebration of our shared humanity StoryCorps founder and legendary radio producer Dave Isay selects the most memorable stories from StoryCorps' collection, creating a moving portrait of American life. The voices here connect us to real people and their lives--to their experiences of profound joy, sadness, courage, and despair, to good times and hard times, to good deeds and misdeeds. To read this book is to be reminded of how rich and varied the American storybook truly is, how resistant to easy categorization or stereotype. We are our history, individually and collectively, and Listening Is an Act of Love touchingly reminds us of this powerful truth. Dave Isay's newest book, Callings, is now available from Penguin Press.
