<b>A faded farmhouse, a devoted dog. One special season.</b><br /><br />Melinda is already at a crossroads when the “for rent” sign beckons her down a dusty gravel lane. Facing forty, single and downsized from her stellar career at a big-city ad agency, she’s struggling to start over when a phone call brings her home to rural Iowa. <br /><br />It's not long before she moves to the country, takes on a rundown farm and its headstrong animals, and lands behind the counter of her family’s hardware store in the community of Prosper, whose motto is “The Great Little Town That Didn’t.” And just like the sprawling garden she tends under the summer sun, Melinda begins to thrive. But when storm clouds arrive on her horizon, can she hold on to the new life she's worked so hard to create?<br /><br />Filled with memorable characters, from a big-hearted farm dog to the weather-obsessed owner of the local co-op, “Growing Season” celebrates the twists and turns of small-town life. Discover the heartwarming series that’s filled with new friends, fresh starts and second chances.<br />

<b>AN <i>ECONOMIST</i> BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR<br /><br />From the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning <i>Gulag</i> and the National Book Award finalist <i>Iron Curtain</i>, a revelatory history of one of Stalin's greatest crimes—the consequences of which still resonate today</b><br /><br />In 1929 Stalin launched his policy of agricultural collectivization—in effect a second Russian revolution—which forced millions of peasants off their land and onto collective farms. The result was a catastrophic famine, the most lethal in European history. At least five million people died between 1931 and 1933 in the USSR. But instead of sending relief the Soviet state made use of the catastrophe to rid itself of a political problem. In <i>Red Famine</i>, Anne Applebaum argues that more than three million of those dead were Ukrainians who perished not because they were accidental victims of a bad policy but because the state deliberately set out to kill them.<br /><br />Applebaum proves what has long been suspected: after a series of rebellions unsettled the province, Stalin set out to destroy the Ukrainian peasantry. The state sealed the republic’s borders and seized all available food. Starvation set in rapidly, and people ate anything: grass, tree bark, dogs, corpses. In some cases, they killed one another for food. Devastating and definitive, <i>Red Famine</i> captures the horror of ordinary people struggling to survive extraordinary evil.<br /><br />Today, Russia, the successor to the Soviet Union, has placed Ukrainian independence in its sights once more. Applebaum’s compulsively readable narrative recalls one of the worst crimes of the twentieth century, and shows how it may foreshadow a new threat to the political order in the twenty-first.

<b>A new year brings new challenges … and the chance to make a dream come true.</b> <br /><br />Melinda expects to spend January lounging by her farmhouse's fireplace, paging through the seed catalogs’ promises of spring. After all, the slower pace of rural life was one of the reasons she’d left the city behind. <br /><br />Instead, she must face her fears when the worst of winter’s threats arrive at her door. Braving blizzards to care for her animals, thawing her acreage’s water lines, and anxiously watching over the pregnant sheep in her barn fill her shorter days and longer nights. She trudges on because Horace’s offer stands firm: He’ll sell her the farm in the spring if she still wants to stay.<br /><br />But as winter tightens its grip on the heartland, Melinda's biggest challenges are still to come. When a series of events threatens to break her heart and shatter her hopes, can she find the courage to see the season through?<br />
