A dying wish alters the course of a young woman’s life. Life hadn’t been easy for Summer Snow. In acts of selflessness—caring for her ailing parents and running her grandmother’s bookstore—she had forfeited her youth and dreams for the needs of others. And the only tries she had at love… didn’t turn out. She had the bookstore, she had her beloved granny, but she was missing something—or someone. Opportunity strikes when Granny sends Summer on an unexpected adventure with one Martin Langtree, a kind but gangly young man from Summer’s past. A childhood friendship is rekindled, a romance is sparked, and mysteries are solved in one magical Texas summer. Will Summer strike out on love again, or will things finally go her way? With lovable characters and surprising twists, Summer’s List is a simple delight.

In The Summer Book Tove Jansson distills the essence of the summer—its sunlight and storms—into twenty-two crystalline vignettes. This brief novel tells the story of Sophia, a six-year-old girl awakening to existence, and Sophia’s grandmother, nearing the end of hers, as they spend the summer on a tiny unspoiled island in the Gulf of Finland. The grandmother is unsentimental and wise, if a little cranky; Sophia is impetuous and volatile, but she tends to her grandmother with the care of a new parent. Together they amble over coastline and forest in easy companionship, build boats from bark, create a miniature Venice, write a fanciful study of local bugs. They discuss things that matter to young and old alike: life, death, the nature of God and of love. “On an island,” thinks the grandmother, “everything is complete.” In The Summer Book, Jansson creates her own complete world, full of the varied joys and sorrows of life. Tove Jansson, whose Moomintroll comic strip and books brought her international acclaim, lived for much of her life on an island like the one described in The Summer Book, and the work can be enjoyed as her closely observed journal of the sounds, sights, and feel of a summer spent in intimate contact with the natural world.

Since embarking on his travels more than twenty years ago, Shortell has completed two around-the-world trips, explored more than eighty countries, set foot on all seven continents, and visited each of the fifty states in the United States.

This travel memoir describes his exploits as he battles a chigger, a caterpillar, and an octopus (not to mention roving hoards of onions). Shortell shares his encounters with whales, koalas, sharks, snakes, gators, and even mermaids! And he recounts the thrills of skydiving, bungee jumping, SCUBA diving, and the occasional nudity in unexpected places. "Summers Off" not only captures the essence of Shortell's zest for life and adventure, it also communicates the personal growth and understanding that can be gained through travel.
