Jenna Boltz's life is at a crossroads. She's spent the last twenty years raising her two children on her own, and she loves her job as a Seattle ICU nurse. But now that she's officially an 'empty nester', Jenna can't help but wonder what her future holds. When her kids, Paul and Allie, and her dear friend Maura push her to begin dating again, Jenna is skeptical. Will she ever find the 'we'll always have Paris' kind of love that she's always yearned for? Enter Dr. Rowan Lancaster, who saves the day when Jenna's elderly mother suffers an accident in her home. Though he keeps to himself, Jenna can't help but notice his kindness. He, on the other hand, is immediately smitten with her. Still fearing a romantic relationship, she insists they remain friends, until she realizes that he may be more worthy of a Paris experience than she thought. But one day, when her children approach her with shocking news, Jenna begins to question everything

Now Eliza embarks on the trip of a lifetime, home with Sofya to see the splendors of Russia.

True love by Jude Deveraux( Recording )

"Jude Deveraux, the New York Times bestselling author of unforgettable romance, returns with a breathtaking first book in a fantastic new series-- the Nantucket Brides trilogy. Set on the magical Massachusetts island, True Love introduces characters from a new generation of Montgomery-Taggerts, the beloved family from Deveraux's classic novels. Just as Alix Madsen is finishing up architectural school, Adelaide Kingsley dies and wills her, for one year, the use of a charming nineteenth-century Nantucket house. The elderly woman's relationship to the Madsen family is a mystery to the spirited Alix-- fresh from a romantic breakup-- but for reasons of her own Alix accepts the quirky bequest, in part because it gives her time to plan her best friend's storybook wedding. But unseen forces move behind the scenes, creaking Kingsley House's ancient floorboards. It seems that Adelaide Kingsley had a rather specific task for Alix: to solve the strange disappearance of one of the Kingsley women, Valentina, more than two hundred years ago. If that wasn't troubling enough, Alix must deal with the arrogant (and extremely good-looking) architect Jared Montgomery, who is living in the property's guesthouse. Unbeknown to Alix, Jared has been charged with looking after her while she lives on the island-- an easy task for him, considering the undeniable chemistry between the two. But Jared harbors secrets of his own, which, if revealed, may drive a wedge between the pair. With a glorious Nantucket wedding on the horizon, sparks fly, and the ghosts of the past begin to reveal themselves-- some of them literally. Finding their lives inextricably entwined with the turbulent fortunes of their ancestors, Alix and Jared discover that only by righting the wrongs of the past can they hope to be together"--Publisher's web site

The middle place by Kelly Corrigan( Recording )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a coming of age memoir about a woman who loved being a girl and the things that made her finally grow up, Kelly Corrigan brilliantly explores the "middle place" between childhood and adulthood, and how one woman made the leap to the other side. "The thing you need to know about me," she begins, "is that I am George Corrigan's daughter, his only daughter." Intertwining her own story with that of her larger-than-life, Irish-American, born-salesman father, Corrigan illustrates an unbelievably powerful and healing father/daughter relationship which evolves as they both must battle cancer. Uplifting without shying away from the realities of illness, Corrigan's highly personal story examines what it means when the one person who has been your source of strength is in need of some himself, and that bittersweet "in between" moment when you're a devoted wife and mother, but you'll always be daddy's girl
