On the surface Grace Bennett has it all—three wonderful children, a devoted husband and a life of adventure and travel. But somewhere between her husband Steve's demanding career, raising a family, the constant uprooting and the Navy's routine, Grace has lost her sense of self. And when a nearly forgotten secret resurfaces, her discontent comes into sharp focus. Something needs to change. She needs to change. Then duty calls. Now, separated by an ocean of regrets and longing, Grace and Steve are forced to take a hard look at their faltering marriage. But when the unthinkable happens, Grace is left to face a Navy wife's worst nightmare—the cold truth that life's biggest chances can slip away while you're looking for guarantees.

As the growing specter of Nazi anti-Semitism threatens a German Jewish family's existence, they send their twelve-year-old daughter to safety in America. The letters written by Sam Kahn to his daughter, Thea, in Chicago, and her vivid recollections of that time in her young life, form a tiny, yet poignantly personal portrait of an era of constant dread. There Must Be an Ocean between Us records a father's innermost fears, not only for his distant daughter, but also for the family members whose very lives were at risk in Nazi Germany. The correspondence provides unique insights into the nightmare that Nazism brought to the lives of ordinary people. But even more engrossing are Thea's memories of this difficult time. Her letters not only display a young girl's growing anxiety for her family but also reflect the ironic contrast between her idyllic American circumstances and the harrowing straits of the Kahn family in Europe. This story offers a unique perspective on one of the twentieth century's most critical periods. This is not the pre-World War II era as seen by the Roosevelts, Stalins, or Hitlers, who shaped so many destinies, but the view from an ordinary family for whom a mere scrap of paper-an exit visa-represented life itself.

Masters Sweet Baked Goods-the best bakery in Benton Creek. Run by Hendlee Masters and her grandmother, Masters Sweets is the heart and soul of what's left of Hendlee's family. Raised by her grandmother after her parents died when she was only five, Hendlee's poured her time and energy into building her own life in the small town she loves. Best friends are hard to find-and even harder to keep. Hendlee didn't start to notice her feelings for one of her friends-Quaid Castings-until she was in high school. By then it was too late. Unlike her, his plans for the future involved ditching town and enrolling in the Naval Academy. Just one night with Quaid is all she wants, but when it finally happens, it's not nearly enough. And he's leaving in less than twenty-four hours. The pursuit of happiness often requires leaving someone behind. Quaid wants more than the country life. Joining the Navy is the best way to explore the world beyond the hills of Kentucky. Except chasing his dream means leaving behind the girl he's been in love with all his life-Hendlee Masters. When Quaid chooses a career in the Navy over the love of a small-town girl, will their fates once again align? Or will their love be lost in The Ocean Between Us?

New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice • An Amazon Best Science Book of 2014 • Scientific American Recommended Read “Fascinating, informative, exhilarating.” —Wall Street Journal Deep is a voyage from the ocean’s surface to its darkest trenches, the most mysterious places on Earth. Fascinated by the sport of freediving—in which competitors descend great depths on a single breath—James Nestor embeds with a gang of oceangoing extreme athletes and renegade researchers. He finds whales that communicate with other whales hundreds of miles away, sharks that swim in unerringly straight lines through pitch-black waters, and other strange phenomena. Most illuminating of all, he learns that these abilities are reflected in our own remarkable, and often hidden, potential—including echolocation, directional sense, and the profound bodily changes humans undergo when underwater. Along the way, Nestor unlocks his own freediving skills as he communes with the pioneers who are expanding our definition of what is possible in the natural world, and in ourselves. “A journey well worth taking.” —David Epstein, New York Times Book Review “Nestor pulls us below the surface into a world far beyond imagining and opens our eyes to these unseen places.” —Dallas Morning News “This is popular science writing at its best.” —Christian Science Monitor
