Summary:

Marc, adolescent à la sensibilité et l'imagination débordantes, subit de plein front le cancer de Lucie, sa petite sœur de huit ans. Alors que les aller-retours à l'hôpital se font plus fréquents, il dérive progressivement dans l'onirique afin d'oublier la réalité du quotidien... Trouvera-t-il dans ses rêves une explication à la vanité du mal ? Dans le style francisé de J. D. Salinger, Bittersweet ("tendre-amer" en anglais) raconte l'histoire d'un jeune schizophrène perdant peu à peu ses repères face à la progression de la maladie de sa sœur. Les thèmes abordés y sont parfois un peu durs, mais toujours traités avec humour. L'humanité du personnage principal, ses questions sur la religion, la beauté, ainsi que son incompréhension face à l'injustice du monde sont mises au premier plan. Ce qu'ils en ont pensé : "Cette histoire m'a profondément touchée. C'est un thème délicat, triste mais manié avec tant de justesse, de sincérité, d'amour et de jolies métaphores que l'on ne se sent pas déprimé après l'avoir fini. Marc est un personnage très percutant et émouvant, c'est ce qui m'a le plus surprise finalement. C'est un beau coup de cœur que je recommande vivement !" La vie des livres "Ce roman est poignant, bouleversant et fantasmagorique à la fois. Colas Droin, ayant contracté la maladie de Lyme, crie, au travers de son roman, toute la consternation du malade face au destin et à l'équilibre fragile de la vie. Une jolie curiosité. A la fin du roman, n'hésitez pas à lire la postface qui vous donnera des éléments cruciaux sur la genèse du roman." Mes Évasions Livresques

Summary:

Murder in a small town is always personal. Local longtime librarian, Sybil Tombe, is missing, abducted from her home on the outskirts of the isolated ranching town of Lost Trail, Montana. An elderly neighbor reports seeing a gray-haired, bearded man driving up to Sybil’s house the night she disappeared. Newly-minted Sheriff Zak Waller can’t think of a less likely target for a crime. When an older man is reported lurking around a young girl at the local grade school, Zak wonders if this man could also be Sybil’s abductor? The descriptions of the men are similar—but what could be the possible link between a young girl and 60-year-old Sybil? Peeling back the layers of Sybil's life, Zak discovers Sybil is a master at keeping secrets, especially her own, and these secrets may now be threatening her life as well as the life of an innocent child. As Zak and his team work to uncover the truth, he also has to deal with issues in his romantic relationship with deputy Nadine Black, and mete justice to a respected town citizen who has been sheltering his criminal past for too long.

Summary:

It's said that the only thing in life that doesn't change is change itself. In this collection of poignant essays, New York Times bestselling author Shauna Niequist reflects on her own journey of making peace with change, the nuanced mix of excitement and heartbreak that comes with it, and the practices that offer us strength and hope along the way. When life comes at us in waves, our first instinct is to dig in our heels and control what we can. A keen observer of life with a lyrical voice, Shauna offers another way--the way of letting the waves carry us into a deeper awareness of the presence of God in our lives, even in the midst of turmoil. Drawing from her own experiences in a season of pain and chaos--difficult moves, job changes, marital stress, financial worries, and miscarriage--Shauna explores the gifts and wisdom that only come to us the hard way, through change, loss, and transition. With honesty and hope, Shauna beautifully unwraps the complicated truth that in all things there is both something broken and something beautiful, a moment of lightness even on the darkest of nights, and that rejoicing is no less meaningful when it contains a splinter of sadness. A tribute to life at the edges, this selection of essays is a love letter to the bittersweet and sacred work change does in us all.

New from the author of Death Come Quickly and Widow's Tears This Thanksgiving, be grateful for China Bayles—who teams up with an old friend to solve a complex case of theft and murder in a South Texas ranching community… It’s Thanksgiving in Pecan Springs, and China is planning to visit her mother, Leatha, and her mother’s husband, Sam, who are enthusiastically embarking on a new enterprise—turning their former game ranch into a vacation retreat for birders. She’s also looking forward to catching up with her friend, game warden Mackenzie “Mack” Chambers, who was recently transferred to the area. But Leatha calls with bad news: Sam has had a heart attack. How will Leatha manage if Sam can’t carry his share? She does have a helper, Sue Ellen Krause. But China discovers that Sue Ellen, who is in the process of leaving her marriage to the assistant foreman at a large trophy game ranch, is in some serious trouble. Before Sue Ellen can tell China the full story, her car veers off a deserted road and she is killed. Meanwhile, when a local veterinarian is shot in what appears to be a burglary at his clinic, Mack Chambers believes his murder could be related to fawns stolen from a nearby ranch. As Mack follows the trail, China begins to wonder if Sue Ellen’s death may not have been an accident, and if there’s a connection to the stolen animals. But their search for the truth may put their own lives in danger… From the Hardcover edition.

Summary:

Suspenseful and cinematic, New York Times bestseller Bittersweet exposes the gothic underbelly of an idyllic world of privilege and an outsider’s hunger to belong. On scholarship at a prestigious East Coast college, ordinary Mabel Dagmar is surprised to befriend her roommate, the beautiful, wild, blue-blooded Genevra Winslow. Ev invites Mabel to spend the summer at Bittersweet, her cottage on the Vermont estate where her family has been holding court for more than a century. Mabel falls in love with midnight skinny-dipping, the wet dog smell that lingers near the yachts, and the moneyed laughter that carries across the still lake while fireworks burst overhead. Before she knows it, she has everything she’s ever wanted: friendship, a boyfriend, access to wealth, and, most of all, for the first time in her life, the sense that she belongs. But as Mabel becomes an insider, a terrible discovery leads to shocking violence and reveals what the Winslows may have done to keep their power intact--and what they might do to anyone who threatens them. Mabel must choose: either expose the ugliness surrounding her and face expulsion from paradise, or keep the family’s dark secrets and make Ev's world her own.

Summary:

One of medicine's most remarkable therapeutic triumphs was the discovery of insulin in 1921. The drug produced astonishing results, rescuing children and adults from the deadly grip of diabetes. But as Chris Feudtner demonstrates, the subsequent transformation of the disease from a fatal condition into a chronic illness is a story of success tinged with irony, a revealing saga that illuminates the complex human consequences of medical intervention. Bittersweet chronicles this history of diabetes through the compelling perspectives of people who lived with this disease. Drawing on a remarkable body of letters exchanged between patients or their parents and Dr. Elliot P. Joslin and the staff of physicians at his famed Boston clinic, Feudtner examines the experience of living with diabetes across the twentieth century, highlighting changes in treatment and their profound effects on patients' lives. Although focused on juvenile-onset, or Type 1, diabetes, the themes explored in Bittersweet have implications for our understanding of adult-onset, or Type 2, diabetes, as well as a host of other diseases that, thanks to drugs or medical advances, are being transformed from acute to chronic conditions. Indeed, the tale of diabetes in the post-insulin era provides an ideal opportunity for exploring the larger questions of how medicine changes our lives.

Summary:

Anna Lea Pepper is a feisty, independent, determined woman with a mind of her own. With war between the states looming on the horizon, she's even more determined to protect all that she holds dear: her land and family. When her husband, James, goes off to fight with the Missouri State Guard in the War of Northern Aggression, she is left to tend to their farm at Dry Fork Creek and raise their two children, eleven-year-old Pearl and fourteen-year-old Philip. One day, after Anna Lea and her children finish up their chores on the farm, Anna hears a sound that makes her heart freeze with an unfamiliar fear. Drums boom, and there's the sound of feet trampling the ground. Then she sees them coming down the hill in an endless stream of blue, some on horseback, others marching on foot to the constant rattle of fife and drums—Northern soldiers. Captain Allan Saunders of the Federal Army informs her that General Nathaniel Lyon and his troops will be camping at her home. It is the first of a series of events that will thrust her full-force into the violence and turmoil of war. Anna Lea builds walls of resentment around her heart that have to be torn down when she is forced to rely on help from unexpected sources: an Osage Indian family and the very same Federal captain who camped on the Pepper farm at the start of the war. Anna Lea soon learns life can sometimes be Bittersweet. Author Linda Cushman and her husband, Gary, live in rural Polk County, Missouri, on the farm that is the setting for Bittersweet. She raises cattle and writes in her spare time.

Summary:

SYNOPSIS This is a courageously honest story of love, of hate, of joy, of hardship, of success, of loss. Ultimately, it is the story of two people who survive together and apart 57 years of marriage. In the final analysis, this narrative reveals the triumph of love over all adversity, expressed in a last letter from a loving wife left, once more, to face her life alone. The first part of this autobiographical memoir is based on nearly 800 letters written between the author and her husband of two months, following his deployment to the European War front and his subsequent fifteen month tour-of-duty. A Corporal in the 592nd Field Artillery Battalion, attached to the nearly decimated 106th Infantry Division in the infamous Battle of the Bulge breakthrough by the German forces on December 16, 1944, Cpl Nebeker survived all odds and spent the next year serving in front line duty, returning home in January of 1946. Meanwhile, Helen had relocated to an unfamiliar life in Arizona, her husbands former home, where she remained until his demobilization in 1946.The second half of this memoir delineates in sweet detail the all-too-common experiences of returning servicemen and their wives, as they faced life together in the hard world of post-war survival and the less-than-perfect lives they had so long imagined.

Summary:

"Returning to the sweeping romantic saga, Colleen McCullough presents a new major work: the story of four unforgettable sisters navigating work, love, and their dreams in 1920s Australia. Because they are two sets of twins, the four Latimer sisters are as close as can be. They are famous throughout New South Wales for their beauty, wit, and ambition, but as they step into womanhood, they are not enthusiastic about the limited prospects life holds for them. Instead, Edda wants to be a doctor, Tufts wants to organize everything, Grace won't be told what to do, and Kitty wishes to be known for something other than her beauty. Together they decide to enroll in a training program for nurses--a new option for women of their time. As they become immersed in hospital life and the demands of their training, they meet people and encounter challenges that spark new maturity and independence. They meet men from all walks of life--the local farmers, their professional colleagues, and even men with national roles and reputations, and each sister must make decisions about what she values most. The results are sometimes happy, sometimes heartbreaking, but always...bittersweet"--
