New York Times bestselling author LaVyrle Spencer presents a beautiful and moving tale of a false marriage that leads to true love. The wedding of Clay Forrester and Catherine Anderson was the social event of the season. It seemed like a page out of a fairy tale. But everything about it—from the formal vows to the magnificent reception—was a lie. Catherine had reluctantly agreed to Clay’s “marriage of convenience”—and the only thing that could threaten their arrangement was the unexpected arrival of love. “A superb story.”—Los Angeles Times “LaVyrle Spencer’s legions of fans are drawn to her fiction because of its uncalculated emotion and the author’s almost old-fashioned sense of integrity.”—Chicago Tribune “LaVyrle Spencer is magic!”—Affaire de Coeur

Separate Beds is the shocking story of Canada’s system of segregated health care. Operated by the same bureaucracy that was expanding health care opportunities for most Canadians, the “Indian Hospitals” were underfunded, understaffed, overcrowded, and rife with coercion and medical experimentation. Established to keep the Aboriginal tuberculosis population isolated, they became a means of ensuring that other Canadians need not share access to modern hospitals with Aboriginal patients. Tracing the history of the system from its fragmentary origins to its gradual collapse, Maureen K. Lux describes the arbitrary and contradictory policies that governed the “Indian Hospitals,” the experiences of patients and staff, and the vital grassroots activism that pressed the federal government to acknowledge its treaty obligations. A disturbing look at the dark side of the liberal welfare state, Separate Beds reveals a history of racism and negligence in health care for Canada’s First Nations that should never be forgotten.

A story of economic breakdown and romantic recovery from the author of Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman. Tom and Annie's kids have grown up, the mortgage is do-able, and they're about to get a gorgeous new, state-of-the-art French stove. Life is good- or so it seems. Beneath the veneer of professional success and domestic security, their marriage is crumbling, eaten away by years of resentment, loneliness, and the fall out from the estrangement of their daughter, and they've settled into simply being two strangers living under the same roof. Until the economy falls apart. Suddenly the dull but oddly comfortable predictability of their lives is upended by financial calamity-Tom loses his job, their son returns home, and Tom's mother moves in with them. As their world shrinks, Tom and Annie are forced closer together, and the chaos around them threatens to sweep away their bitterness and frustration, refreshing and possibly restoring the love that had been lying beneath all along. In Separate Beds, Elizabeth Buchan has captured the concerns and joys of contemporary women, and her timely, warm, and funny novel tracks the ebb and flow of family, fortune, and love that is familiar to so many readers.

Separate Beds by Leslée Hart This book is about making people aware before entering a relationship. We have such a built-in instinct to recognize traits that are incompatible, but somehow we make excuses for such behavior, thinking we will be the one that makes that person change for our love. Many readers will relate to this story. It’s easy to put a label on physical abuse but emotional abuse is difficult to define. This book will hopefully raise awareness to look for the signs of abuse. When a firm foundation is laid in a marriage there is no Greater Power! “The author is a courageous, dynamic, and beautiful lady. Her love of God, family, and music is obvious in everything that she does. Her book is the story of her life told in a frank and open manner. A story about love and betrayal; a story told straight from her heart! I admire the way she buckles all the stereotypes and reminds us we don’t have to conform either.” – Edda Taylor “What can I say about one of the most beautiful, talented, courageous, fearless, bold, and spunky women I’ve ever met. She is a mentor and creator; she helps others before herself and has dedicated her life to others’ happiness. I can’t even begin to comprehend the amount of self-courage she has. I love her to pieces and I will always look up to her.” – Priscilla Solina “She is a thoughtful and enthusiastic lady with a passion for life, and memories of our friendship will endure forever. May the disappointments of her past amass an abundance of love, health, and happiness as she transitions into the mystery of the future. With best wishes for the success of her book.” – Camille S. Mann. “She was a good customer for many years and we developed a friendship over those years. She was also a Committee Member for our NWI Parkinson’s organization, a 501c3 charitable corporation, whose primary function is to raise awareness for Parkinson’s disease and raise monies to help fund research for a cure of the disease. She has been an active model for our annual spring fundraiser styles shows for the last 10 years.” – Elizabeth Woodbury

Cinderella and Prince Charming shared a bed after their happily ever after wedding, right? After all, isn't that what happy, loving partners do? 'Not always, in fact, not often,' says Jennifer Adams, the author of Sleeping Apart (Not Falling Apart): How to Get a Good Night's Sleep and Keep Your Relationship Alive. She believes that sleeping together can often cause more sleep deprivation amongst couples than anything except a newborn baby. Many couples have difficulty sleeping in the same bed as a result of one partner's disruptive behaviours such as snoring, restlessness, or a preference for watching TV and/or reading late into the night. Sleeping Apart, Not Falling Apart offers couples practical solutions to having separate beds or bedrooms while maintaining a loving and caring relationship.

"They've said some crazy things about me over the years. I mean, okay: 'He bit the head off a bat.' Yes. 'He bit the head off a dove.' Yes. But then you hear things like, 'Ozzy went to the show last night, but he wouldn't perform until he'd killed fifteen puppies . . .' Now me, kill fifteen puppies? I love puppies. I've got eighteen of the f**king things at home. I've killed a few cows in my time, mind you. And the chickens. I shot the chickens in my house that night. It haunts me, all this crazy stuff. Every day of my life has been an event. I took lethal combinations of booze and drugs for thirty f**king years. I survived a direct hit by a plane, suicidal overdoses, STDs. I've been accused of attempted murder. Then I almost died while riding over a bump on a quad bike at f**king two miles per hour. People ask me how come I'm still alive, and I don't know what to say. When I was growing up, if you'd have put me up against a wall with the other kids from my street and asked me which one of us was gonna make it to the age of sixty, which one of us would end up with five kids and four grandkids and houses in Buckinghamshire and Beverly Hills, I wouldn't have put money on me, no f**king way. But here I am: ready to tell my story, in my own words, for the first time. A lot of it ain't gonna be pretty. I've done some bad things in my time. I've always been drawn to the dark side, me. But I ain't the devil. I'm just John Osbourne: a working-class kid from Aston, who quit his job in the factory and went looking for a good time."

"Remarkable…Ekirch has emptied night's pockets, and laid the contents out before us." —Arthur Krystal, The New Yorker Bringing light to the shadows of history through a "rich weave of citation and archival evidence" (Publishers Weekly), scholar A. Roger Ekirch illuminates the aspects of life most often overlooked by other historians—those that unfold at night. In this "triumph of social history" (Mail on Sunday), Ekirch's "enthralling anthropology" (Harper's) exposes the nightlife that spawned a distinct culture and a refuge from daily life. Fear of crime, of fire, and of the supernatural; the importance of moonlight; the increased incidence of sickness and death at night; evening gatherings to spin wool and stories; masqued balls; inns, taverns, and brothels; the strategies of thieves, assassins, and conspirators; the protective uses of incantations, meditations, and prayers; the nature of our predecessors' sleep and dreams—Ekirch reveals all these and more in his "monumental study" (The Nation) of sociocultural history, "maintaining throughout an infectious sense of wonder" (Booklist).
