Book Summary: You've seen ads for online dating on television, in newspapers, and (naturally) on computer popups. The models are cute, handsome, young, or at least looking good for their age. But what REALLY happens when a computer semi-illiterate 60ish widow is prodded into this very 21st century form of dating---when the last time she dated was when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first men to walk on the moon? Getting back into dating makes her feel young. Actual dating makes her realize she is NOT sixteen anymore. What started out as entries on her Facebook page have expanded into detailed accounts of dating foibles and feats. Anyone who has embraced the concept of online dating, no matter at what age, will find her adventures laugh-out-loud funny and charming.

Book Summary: Motherhood can be one of the most intense and transformative experiences of a woman's life. While there are many books that offer the "do's and don'ts" of effective parenting, few offer guidance on navigating the tumultuous inner experience of being a mother, with all its joy, pain, change, and uncertainty. This collection of writing by psychologists, poets, novelists, spiritual teachers, and everyday moms explores the rich, transformative journey of motherhood. • Poet and novelist Louise Erdrich captures the sheer wonder and awe of early motherhood. • Self-described "hip momma" Ariel Gore reflects on the challenges of dealing with her daughter's adolescent rebellion. • Journalist Joan Peters highlights the rise of the "Power Mom" and the risks of overparenting to our children and ourselves. • Zen teacher Cheri Huber shares a spiritual perspective: sometimes it's us parents who need a "time out" so that we can be more fully present and loving with our children.

The three all threaten to quit and Tagg must keep them content and ready to perform or there will be hell to pay. He also wrangles a tantalizingly lovely young starlet he has always fantasized about. But she has her own ideas about how to treat wranglers, as he soon learns. Meanwhile, a young woman nicknamed Marvelous, a play on her real name as well as her face and figure, is assigned to wrangle three talent of her own. One is a kid known for heartwarming movies and cute schtick, but who arrives with a set of problems she never expected.

Book Summary: ONE LOVE STORY. TWO MARRIAGES. THREE VERSIONS OF THE TRUTH. Too Good to Be True is an obsessive, addictive love story for fans of Lisa Jewell and The Wife Upstairs, from Carola Lovering, the beloved author of Tell Me Lies. Skye Starling is overjoyed when her boyfriend, Burke Michaels, proposes after a whirlwind courtship. Though Skye seems to have the world at her fingertips—she’s smart, beautiful, and from a well-off family—she’s also battled crippling OCD ever since her mother’s death when she was eleven, and her romantic relationships have suffered as a result. But now Burke—handsome, older, and more emotionally mature than any man she’s met before—says he wants her. Forever. Except, Burke isn’t who he claims to be. And interspersed letters to his therapist reveal the truth: he’s happily married, and using Skye for his own, deceptive ends. In a third perspective, set thirty years earlier, a scrappy seventeen-year-old named Heather is determined to end things with Burke, a local bad boy, and make a better life for herself in New York City. But can her adolescent love stay firmly in her past—or will he find his way into her future? On a collision course she doesn’t see coming, Skye throws herself into wedding planning, as Burke’s scheme grows ever more twisted. But of course, even the best laid plans can go astray. And just when you think you know where this story is going, you’ll discover that there’s more than one way to spin the truth.

Book Summary: The Book of Ruth is about two sisters, Ruth Matilda Clarkson and Cora Undine Lasciter, who survive the trials of a challenging childhood and a demanding father in 1940s America and then find themselves swept up in the powerful currents of the men who come into their lives. Ruth, the older, whose life is a sort of modern-day parody of her namesake, Ruth the Moabite of the Old Testament, marries a young man she meets at college, the enigmatic Richard Clarkson, a man controlled by his appetites and unending desires, and leaves her family in St. Louis and moves to the rural town of Ox Bend, Missouri, where she becomes part of the Clarksons’ family-run funeral business. After they have been married only a few months, Ruth’s family, attempting to avoid a scandal, asks her to adopt her sister’s illegitimate child, Aaron, who turns out to be a special-needs child who ultimately transforms Ruth’s life in ways she never thought possible, even after his death in 1990. Her estranged sister, Cora Lasciter, a beautiful, impetuous, free-spirited woman and a survivor of sexual abuse, gives birth to a child, Aaron, at age seventeen, signs over her parental rights to her sister, and then moves from relationship to relationship as she struggles with the demons from her past. Years later, when she attends Aaron’s funeral, the two sisters, bound by their connection to the child, gradually rebuild their filial connection, and together they face the pains of infidelity, the loss of love, and the vicissitudes of old age. It’s an uplifting survival story of two very different women connected by the unbreakable bond of sisterly love, unending faith, and the innocent truth and unfiltered love of a child who brings them back together, and represents the possibility of love, forgiveness, and ultimate redemption.
