Kristin Hannah - Summer ​Island
NEW ​YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The author of the cherished bestseller On Mystic Lake returns with a poignant, funny, luminous novel about a mother and daughter--the complex ties that bind them, the past that separates them, and the healing that comes with forgiveness. Years ago, Nora Bridge walked out on her marriage and left her daughters behind. She has since become a famous radio talk-show host and newspaper columnist beloved for her moral advice. Her youngest daughter, Ruby, is a struggling comedienne who uses her famous mother as fuel for her bitter, cynical humor. When the tabloids unearth a scandalous secret from Nora's past, their estrangement suddenly becomes dramatic: Nora is injured in an accident and a glossy magazine offers Ruby a fortune to write a tell-all about her mother. Under false pretenses, Ruby returns home to take care of the woman she hasn't spoken to for almost a decade. Nora insists they retreat to Summer Island in the San Juans, to the lovely old house on the water where Ruby grew up, a place filled with childhood memories of love and joy and belonging. There Ruby is also reunited with her first love and his brother. Once, the three of them had been best friends, inseparable. Until the summer that Nora had left and everyone's hearts had been broken. . . . What began as an expose evolves, as Ruby writes, into an exploration of her family's past. Nora is not the woman Ruby has hated all these years. Witty, wise, and vulnerable, she is desperate to reconcile with her daughter. As the magazine deadline draws near and Ruby finishes what has begun to seem to her an act of brutal betrayal, she is forced to grow up and at last to look at her mother--and herself--through the eyes of a woman. And she must, finally, allow herself to love. Summer Island is a beautiful novel, funny, tender, sad, and ultimately triumphant.

Leni, fiica adolescentă a soților Ernt și Cora Allbright, prinsă în relația pasională și furtunoasă dintre părinții ei, îndrăznește să spere că un nou cămin în Alaska va aduce cu sine un viitor mai bun pentru familia sa. Mama ei va face orice pentru bărbatul pe care îl iubește, chiar dacă asta înseamnă să-l urmeze în necunoscut. La început, Alaska pare să fie răspunsul la problemele lor. Zilele lungi, însorite și generozitatea localnicilor suplinesc lipsa de experiență și de resurse a familiei. Dar, pe măsură ce se apropie iarna și întunericul coboară peste Alaska, familia începe să se destrame. Leni îl întâlnește însă pe Matthew, iar acesta – grijuliu, bun, curajos – o face să creadă în posibilitatea unei vieți mai bune… _Un nou început_ este o poveste îndrăzneață și emoționantă despre dragoste și pierdere, despre lupta pentru supraviețuire și sălbăticia care sălășluiește nu doar în natură, ci și în ființa umană. „Am adorat această carte și, mai mult decât atât, am devenit obsedată de ea.

At first, Alaska seems to be the answer to their prayers. In a wild, remote corner of the state, they find a fiercely independent community of strong men and even stronger women. The long, sunlit days and the generosity of the locals make up for the Allbrights’ lack of preparation and dwindling resources. But as winter approaches and darkness descends on Alaska, Ernt’s fragile mental state deteriorates and the family begins to fracture. Soon the perils outside pale in comparison to threats from within. In their small cabin, covered in snow, blanketed in eighteen hours of night, Leni and her mother learn the terrible truth: they are on their own. In the wild, there is no one to save them but themselves. In this unforgettable portrait of human frailty and resilience, Kristin Hannah reveals the indomitable character of the modern American pioneer and the spirit of a vanishing Alaska―a place of incomparable beauty and danger. The Great Alone is a daring, beautiful, stay-up-all-night story about love and loss, the fight for survival, and the wildness that lives in both man and nature.

Kristin Hannah - A ​Handful of Heaven
Yukon ​Territory was a gold miner's heaven, and Devon O'Shea had come to claim her share. But instead of a thriving store in a boom town, Devon discovered she was part owner of a filthy, disorganized tent with a bunch of gold diggers and a mountainous slap of animosity for a partner: Stone Man McKenna. Gathering mop, pail and sheer determination, Devon vowed to make this post the best in the Yukon Territory. Stone Man didn't scare her. But his kiss -- a gruff attempt to convince her that the Yukon was no place for a lady -- left her feeling, for the first time in her life, feminine and alive . . .

Az ​élet döntések sorozata. Megtartani... elengedni... felejteni... megbocsátani... Melyiket választod? Lexi és Mia a középiskola első napjától fogva elválaszthatatlanok.

Sam Bourne - Kristin Hannah - Susan Hill - Tami Hoag - Végső ​leszámolás / Szentjánosbogár út / A férfi a képen / Az igazság álarcai
Sam ​Bourne: Végső leszámolás A második világháború végén megalakult egy titkos zsidó szervezet, amelynek tagjai felesküdtek, hogy bosszút állnak mindazokon, akiknek köze volt a koncentrációs táborokban elkövetett rémtettekhez. A Bosszúállóknak nevezett halálkommandó története ihlette a brit sikerszerző legújabb regényét, melyben egy meggyilkolt idős férfi lánya és az egykori ENSZ jogtanácsos együttes erővel derít fényt a nemzetközi szervezettel kapcsolatos sötét titkokra.

Ahogy változtak a divatirányzatok és a slágerek, úgy hullámzott a két nő három évtizedet felölelő kapcsolata is, ennek ellenére mindketten erős támaszként számíthattak a másikra, ha a sors éppen úgy rendelte. Susan Hill: A férfi a képen A brit írónő ismét kísértethistóriával lepte meg rajongóit. Egy idős professzor osztja meg vendégével az otthonát díszítő egyik olajfestmény hátborzongató történetét. A velencei karneválról készült képen az egyik csatorna partján vigadó jelmezesek láthatók, arcukat maszk takarja. Csakhogy a tömegben az egyik álarc nélküli férfi kétségbeesve néz kifelé a festményből, mintha valamilyen segítséget várna a szemlélőtől... Tami Hoag: Az igazság álarcai A közvéleményt foglalkoztató gyilkossági ügy tárgyalása előtt Carey Moore bírónő vitatott döntést hoz: a vád képviselője nem hivatkozhat a vádlott korábban elkövetett bűntetteire. Az asszony tisztában van vele, hogy a rendelkezést sokan megütközve fogadják majd, de az meg sem fordul a fejében, hogy akár az élete is veszélybe kerülhet. Vajon kitől remélhetne védelmet, ha a rendőrök mindenkinél jobban neheztelnek rá?
