The Invisible Heart from the Author: Russell Roberts. A love story that embraces the business and economic issues of the day?The Invisible Heart takes a provocative look at business, economics, and regulation through the eyes of Sam Gordon and Laura Silver, teachers at the exclusive Edwards School in Washington, D.C. Sam lives and breathes capitalism. He thinks that most government regulation is unnecessary or even harmful. He believes that success in business is a virtue. He believes that our humanity flourishes under economic freedom. Laura prefers Wordsworth to the Wall Street Journal. Where Sam sees victors, she sees victims. She wants the government to protect consumers and workers from the excesses of Sam's beloved marketplace.While Sam and Laura argue about how to make the world a better place, a parallel story unfolds across town. Erica Baldwin, the crusading head of a government watchdog agency, tries to bring Charles Krauss, a ruthless CEO, to justice. How are these two dramas connected? Why is Sam under threat of dismissal? Will Erica Baldwin find the evidence she needs? Can Laura love a man with an Adam Smith poster on his wall? The answers in The Invisible Heart give the reader a richer appreciation for how business and the marketplace transform our lives.

This Proud Heart from the Author: Pearl S. Buck. In the 1930s, as her second marriage approaches, a brilliant and independent sculptor faces tensions between her art and everyday life in this novel by the author of The Good Earth. This Proud Heart narrates the experience of a gifted sculptor and her struggle to reconcile her absorbing career with society’s domestic expectations. Susan Gaylord is talented, loving, equipped with a strong moral sense, and adept at anything she puts her hand to, from housework to playing the piano to working with marble and clay. But the intensity of her artistic calling comes at a price, isolating her from other people—at times, even from her own family. When her husband dies and she remarries, she finds herself once again comparing the sacrifice of solitude to that of commitment. With a heroine who is naturalistic yet compellingly larger than life, This Proud Heart is incomparable in its sympathetic study of character. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Pearl S. Buck including rare images from the author’s estate.

The Edible Exile from the Author: Carl Hiaasen. Cuervo is a pampered Nicaraguan moneyman, funding a guerrilla war from his cushy Miami penthouse. Sixto is his hulking, pistol-packing attendant, whose job satisfaction is on the wane. When an aging mobster enters their lives with a promise to help the rebel causeÑwith a planeload of chickens originally intended for voodoo sacrificeÑa tense situation turns combustible. From the wickedly funny mind of Carl Hiaasen comes "The Edible Exile," a raucous story of sleazeball nihilists, lovable thugs, and jungle-weary freedom fighters who collide in a battle of wills, ego, and the almighty dollar. This cheeky tale, written twenty-five years ago, set aside, and recently rediscovered, is a time-capsule glimpse of Miami during the over-the-top 1980s, when everyone was on the make and gross excess was the order of the day. In an intriguing twist, Hiaasen had lost his original ending to the story. ÒSo I decided to write a new ending,Ó he says. ÒAs a friend said, ÔHow often does a writer get the opportunity to collaborate with a younger version of himself?ÕÓ "The Edible Exile" is a wild romp through Hiaasen Country, sure to appeal to the outlaw in all of us. PRAISE FOR CARL HIAASEN ÒA relentlessly sane voice in a hurricane of hypocrisy, hokum and hype.Ó ÑDave Barry ÒDoes anyone remember what we did for fun before Hiaasen began turning out his satirical comedies?ÓÊ ÑThe San Francisco Chronicle ÒCarl Hiaasen isnÕt just FloridaÕs sharpest satiristÑheÕs one of the few funny writers left in the whole country . . . I think of him as a national treasure.Ó ÑNewsweek ÒHiaasen [is] a superb national satirist . . . A great American writer about the great American subjects of ambition, greed, vanity and disappointment.Ó ÑEntertainment Weekly ÒNo one writes about Florida with a more wicked sense of humor than Hiaasen." ÑUSA Today ÒHiaasenÕs wasteland is as retributive as Cormac McCarthyÕs, but funnier. . . .Ê [His] pacing is impeccable, and the scenes follow one another like LayÕs potato chips.Ó ÑThe New York Times Book Review ÒRecalls Twain and Chandler in its mingling of the cultured and the coarse É The funniest writer around.Ó ÑSunday Times of London
