From the national bestselling author of Truly a Wife comes a wonderful and tender romance set in nineteenth-century San Francisco. When wealthy businessman James Craig was awakened by heartrending weeping in the night, he thought he was reliving his painful past. But what he found was not his worst nightmare, but a beautiful and fragile dream, who made him yearn for a future...with her... Frightened and in desperate straits, Elizabeth Sadler arrived in San Francisco full of hope for a new life. But her hope was destroyed when she found herself alone and penniless. Then, like an angel in the night, an enegmatic stranger heard her cries, gave her comfort--and offered her a job as governess to his four daughters. In his eyes, she saw a love that promised her heaven. But angry whispers surround him--and keep him and his family separate from a town too prejudiced and suspicious to accept them. The ugly rumors, and the shadows of a past tragedy threaten to create an impenetrable barrier between James and Elizabeth. To love him, she must find the courage to stand by him, in the face of an ignorant and fearful society, and her own secret doubts... Includes a preview of the sequel, A Wanted Man.

A novel “as haunting as a dream” from the New York Times-bestselling, Newbery Medal-winning author of The Giver (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). Where do dreams come from? What stealthy nighttime messengers are the guardians of our most deeply hidden hopes and our half-forgotten fears? This imaginative novel confronts these questions and explores the conflicts between the gentle bits and pieces of the past that come to life in dream, and the darker horrors that find their form in nightmare. In a haunting story that tiptoes between reality and fantasy, two people—a lonely, sensitive woman and a damaged, angry boy—face their own histories and discover what they can be to one another, renewed by the strength that comes from a tiny, caring creature they will never see. “Lyrical, richly descriptive prose ushers readers into a fascinating parallel world inhabited by appealingly quirky characters.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “A beautiful novel with an intriguing premise.”—School Library Journal (starred review)

It's fragile but if true may be stretched to the limit and become frayed but won't break. Ordinary people sometimes live through extraordinary events that change their lives. A Gossamer Cord isn't about caricatures or superhumans but persons who are simply trying to live and love, be happy and be loved.

A SPY. AN AIRSHIP. AND A BROKEN HEART. After losing her husband to a rogue French agent, Charlotte Moncrieffe wants to make her mark in international espionage. And what could be better for recovering secret long-lost documents from the Palais Garnier than her stealth dirigible, Gossamer Wing? Her spymaster father has one condition: He won’t send her to Paris without an ironclad cover. Dexter Hardison prefers inventing to politics, but his title as Makesmith Baron and his formidable skills make him an ideal husband-imposter for Charlotte. And the unorthodox undercover arrangement would help him in his own field of discovery. But from Charlotte and Dexter’s marriage of convenience comes a distraction—a passion that complicates an increasingly dangerous mission. For Charlotte, however, the thought of losing Dexter also opens her heart to a thrilling new future of love and adventure.

Carmela Bertrand knows that Halloween in New Orleans means a week of rabble-rousing, costumed craziness—and she can’t wait to get the party started. But when a local antiques dealer turns up dead, Carmela suddenly finds herself in a real-life danse macabre… An evening’s work deciding on the class schedule for her scrapbooking shop has put Carmela in the mood to kick up her heels. But after some strange noises draw her into Oddities, the neighboring antiques shop, Carmela’s night is abruptly put on hold when a bloody body falls out of a curio cabinet—and into her arms. While shop owner Marcus Joubert was known for being an eccentric with a penchant for eclectic merchandise, Carmela never thought he was the kind of man who could inspire the passion required to kill. But when Marcus’s assistant—and fiancée—Mavis reveals that a priceless death mask was also stolen, it becomes clear that murder wasn’t the culprit’s sole intention. Carmela can’t resist the urge to investigate the growing mystery, but as the list of suspects increases, she realizes it’ll take every trick in the book to unmask the killer thief before there’s another night of murderous mischief…

Kagero Nikki, translated here as The Gossamer Years, belongs to the same period as the celebrated Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikuibu. This remarkably frank autobiographical diary and personal confession attempts to describe a difficult relationship as it reveals two tempestuous decades of the author's unhappy marriage and her growing indignation at rival wives and mistresses. Too impetuous to be satisfied as a subsidiary wife, this beautiful (and unnamed) noblewoman of the Heian dynasty protests the marriage system of her time in one of Japanese literature's earliest attempts to portray difficult elements of the predominant social hierarchy. A classic work of early Japanese prose, The Gossamer Years is an important example of the development of Heian literature, which, at its best, represents an extraordinary flowering of realistic expression, an attempt, unique for its age, to treat the human condition with frankness and honesty. A timeless and intimate glimpse into the culture of ancient Japan, this translation by Edward Seidensticker paints a revealing picture of married life in the Heian period.

"The Gossamer Nature of Random Things" presents a collection of introspective poems composed over a twenty-eight year period by writer and poet Howard Brown. These poems are based on the random observations and internal reflections of the author on a wide range of topics: from encounters with interesting people, to special places he has visited, to the unique nature of the moon and its cycles. His poems reflect upon everyday joys and sorrows- whether chronicling an enjoyable afternoon at his daughter's house listening to his grandchildren at play in "Alicia's Backyard," or musing in "Ghost" over the futility of trying to hold on to the past. "The Gossamer Nature of Random Things" provides an intimate look into the life and emotions of one man-a sort of personal journal in verse form. "Kaleidoscope Sheltered by a neon sky, the mountain, a collage of red, green and gold, the magic of the landscape enhanced by its own inherent transience."
