<b>The stunning, timely new novel from the acclaimed, internationally bestselling author of <i>The Architect's Apprentice</i> and <i>The Bastard of Istanbul</i>.</b><br /><br />Peri, a married, wealthy, beautiful Turkish woman, is on her way to a dinner party at a seaside mansion in Istanbul when a beggar snatches her handbag. As she wrestles to get it back, a photograph falls to the ground -- an old polaroid of three young women and their university professor. A relic from a past -- and a love -- Peri had tried desperately to forget.<br /><br /><i>Three Daughters of Eve</i> is set over an evening in contemporary Istanbul, as Peri arrives at the party and navigates the tensions that simmer in this crossroads country between East and West, religious and secular, rich and poor. Over the course of the dinner, and amidst an opulence that is surely ill-begotten, terrorist attacks occur across the city. Competing in Peri's mind however are the memories invoked by her almost-lost polaroid, of the time years earlier when she was sent abroad for the first time, to attend Oxford University. As a young woman there, she had become friends with the charming, adventurous Shirin, a fully assimilated Iranian girl, and Mona, a devout Egyptian-American. Their arguments about Islam and feminism find focus in the charismatic but controversial Professor Azur, who teaches divinity, but in unorthodox ways. As the terrorist attacks come ever closer, Peri is moved to recall the scandal that tore them all apart.<br /> <br />Elif Shafak is the number one bestselling novelist in her native Turkey, and her work is translated and celebrated around the world. In Three Daughters of Eve, she has given us a rich and moving story that humanizes and personalizes one of the most profound sea changes of the modern world.

THEY SAY YOU CAN TAKE THE GIRL OUT OF THE SOUTH, BUT YOU CAN’T TAKE THE SOUTH OUT OF THE GIRL. THIS GIRL BEGS TO DIFFER.<br /><br />Piper Wick left her hometown of Pickwick, North Carolina twelve years ago, shook the dust off her feet, ditched her drawl and her family name, and made a new life for herself as a high-powered public relations consultant in Los Angeles. She’s even engaged to be engaged to the picture-perfect U.S. Congressman Grant Spangler.<br /><br />Now all of Piper’s hard-won happiness is threatened by a reclusive uncle’s bout of conscience. In the wake of a health scare, Uncle Obadiah Pickwick has decided to change his will, leaving money to make amends for four generations’ worth of family misdeeds. But that will reveal all the Pickwick’s secrets, including Piper’s.<br /><br />Though Piper arrives in Pickwick primed for battle, she is unprepared for Uncle Obe’s rugged, blue-eyed gardener. So just who is Axel Smith? Why does he think making amends is about more than just making restitution? And why, oh why, can’t she stay on task? With God’s help, Piper is about to discover that although good PR might smooth things over, only the truth will set her free. <br /><br />PRAISE FOR LEAVING CAROLINA<br /><br />“Tamara Leigh always manages to wrap biblical truth in a fun, light-hearted package.

A fun novel not to be missed!” ~ CAMY TANG, author of Single Sashimi and Deadly Intent<br /><br />“Leaving Carolina is the first book in Tamara Leigh’s Southern Discomfort series, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next one!

<b>#1<i> New York Times</i> bestselling author Jan Karon returns with the fourteenth novel in the beloved Mitford series, featuring three generations of Kavanaghs.<br /></b> <br /> After twelve years of wrestling with the conflicts of retirement, Father Tim Kavanagh realizes he doesn't need a steady job to prove himself.

And what about the former mayor, born the year Lindbergh landed in Paris, who’s still running for office? All this, of course, is but a feather on the wind compared to <i>Muse</i> editor J.C.

The ultimate battle which will decide the fate of Heaven and Earth has come. Everett and Courtney Carroll have fared better than most through the past seven years of the Great Tribulation, but the eve of Armageddon refuses to let them live out the last hours of this present age without conflict, trouble, and persistent peril.<br />The Bible has prophesied of the Seven Vials of God’s Wrath, the final judgments which will utterly destroy what’s left of a decimated planet. These calamities will bring a plague of festering boils upon the followers of the Antichrist, rivers and seas will turn to blood, and a global earthquake will raze the cities of the earth to the ground. All of this in the midst of the war to end all wars. <br />Everett and Courtney must leave their sanctuary of relative safety, but there is nowhere left to turn. And getting anywhere in these last days means traversing wastelands patrolled by Global Republic drones or crossing hostile deserts infested by the violent jihadi armies of Caliph Marwan Bakr. It won’t be the first time they’ve been trapped between a rock and a hard place, but it might be the last!<br />Don’t miss the final chapter of The Days of Elijah, the End-Times sensation which chronicles the lives of those who must endure the Great Tribulation and the unabated wrath of God!<br />

<b><i>New York Times</i> Bestseller</b><BR> <BR>In this new holiday-themed novel from the #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>The Mistletoe Promise</i> and <i>The Walk</i>, a man receives the best Christmas present he could ask for: the chance to re-write the past.<BR><BR>Bestselling romance author Jacob Churcher hasn't been home for almost twenty years—not since his mentally ill mother kicked him out of the house when he was just sixteen. When a lawyer calls, days before Christmas, to inform him that his estranged mother has passed away and left her house to him, Jacob returns not just to settle the estate but to try and reconcile with the past and the pain and abuse he experienced as a child. Also, maybe cleaning out her house will be slightly less depressing than spending the holidays alone, watching re-runs of Christmas classics.<BR> <BR>But as it turns out, the house holds more than just difficult memories, Jacob’s mother had become a hoarder and he must excavate through two decades worth of clutter. As Jacob digs through the detritus, like an archaeologist, he uncovers many puzzling items including a diary left by someone named Noel, a young woman he has no recollection of, who stayed with Jacob’s family during her pregnancy. That’s not the only echo from the past. Jacob has an unexpected visitor, Rachel, a woman looking for the mother who put her up for adoption thirty years before. United by their quest to make sense of the past and rewrite their futures, Jacob and Rachel begin a search for Noel. Along the way they find more than they possibly imagined, including grace, forgiveness and a chance at love.
