I discovered that no matter how organized you are or how carefully you think you are living your life, things have a way of getting out of your control. The lid slips off, and everything you save and loved and counted on whirls away in the wind. After the suddend death of her husband, Dill, Anna Rainey is emotionally unable to return to the home they shared. Instead she becomes a perpetual house guest, going from friend to friend, seeking the solace and security in their lives that she no longer feels in her own. Each friend offers a different kind of comfort. Lexi and her young daughter form a sort of surrogate family. Amy and Tim, a newly married couple, give Anna a comfortable place to stay but are so much in love that it is difficult for her to be around them. Philip's platonic friendship threatens to turn into something more complicated. Lydia plies Anna with glasses of red wine and self-help-book platitudes. Offers of advice are everywhere: join a support group, reconnect with family, find a new man. For a while Anna tries to listen--she even meets a new man at a support group--but these remedies fall flat. Ultimately Anna's survival, hard-won and precious, comes in her own time. Lorna J. Cook creates a strong and endearing voice in the character of Anna and keeps the reader rooting for her until, after a year and a day, she finds the strength to go home.

"In this meticulously researched study of Basque boardinghouses in the United States, Jeronima Echeverria offers a history of the institution that most deeply shaped Basque immigrant life and served as the center of Basque communities throughout the West. She weaves into her narrative the stories of the boardinghouse owners and operators and the ways they made their establishments a home away from home for their fellow compatriots, as well as the stories of the young Basques who left the security of their beloved homeland to find work in the U.S."--BOOK JACKET.

Temptation Socialite Eden Carlbough didn't expect running a girls' camp to be easy, but she never thought she'd literally be run up an apple tree by the little monsters...nor did she think she'd come crashing down into the capable arms of orchard owner Chase Elliot. Chase knew he'd caught a windfall when he looked at the woman in his arms. He didn't like being cast as the serpent, but how could he resist when she'd just offered him such forbidden fruit? Untamed Jovilette Wilder had the heart of a lion and the temper of a wildcat. And when Keane Prescott first crossed her path, she had her claws bared. Jo was certain her beguiling new boss imperiled everything she cared for, but she couldn't deny the overpowering attraction that sizzled between them. And though Keane's kisses left her breathless with longing, it was the tenderness he showed her that threatened to tame her heart.

An estimated two-thirds of Caribbeans live outside their homeland. 'Home Away from Home' identifies the different forms of Caribbean diasporan identity and argues that the faith Caribbean people brought with them into the diaspora plays a central role in their development. The study provides a theological interpretation of the diasporan experience, and outlines the principles of diasporan theology and the distinctiveness of its church. Focusing on the Caribbean diaspora in the US, and analysing aspects of the Caribbean British diaspora, the book forges a Black Atlantic theology. The volume also engages with wider discourse on the Black diaspora to offer an inclusive Caribbean diasporan ecclesiology that overcomes Black African-American/Euro-American binaries.
