“Life could toss your sanity about like a glass ball; books were a cushion. How on Earth did non-readers cope when they had nowhere to turn?” Nell Stillman’s road is not easy. When her boorish husband dies soon after they move to the small town of Harvester, Minnesota, Nell is alone, penniless yet responsible for her beloved baby boy, Hillyard. Not an easy fate in small-town America at the beginning of the twentieth century. In the face of nearly insurmountable odds, Nell finds strength in lasting friendships and in the rich inner life awakened by the novels she loves. She falls in love with John Flynn, a charming congressman who becomes a father figure for Hillyard. She teaches at the local school and volunteers at the public library, where she meets Stella Wheeler and her charismatic daughter Sally. She becomes a friend and confidant to many of the girls in town, including Arlene and Lark Erhardt. And no matter how difficult her day, Nell ends each evening with a beloved book. The triumphant return of a great American storyteller, Good Night, Mr. Wodehouse celebrates the strength and resourcefulness of independent women, the importance of community, and the transformative power of reading.

A month after the United States enters World War II, the country is in upheaval — and so is the Erhardt family. Nine-year-old Lark, her mother Arlene, and Aunt Betty are heading for San Diego, far away from Harvester, Minnesota and Arlene’s shiftless husband. In the booming wartime economy, Arlene and Betty are soon at work, leaving Lark alone to explore their new neighborhood, a wartime housing project full of others with similarly uprooted lives. Away from prying eyes and small town expectations, the two women begin to forge new lives and new dreams — dreams that Lark isn’t always comfortable with. This richly detailed novel, told through Lark’s observant eyes, reflects the era’s tumultuous events in the everyday dramas of its memorable, finely nuanced characters.

Ten years ago, Bess Canby's parents died in a suspicious car accident. Since then Bess has lived with her Aunt Kate and Cousin Harriet -- a makeshift family that seemed as solid as any in town. Now, in the space of three days, each woman must decide how much she owes to the past and how much to the future. Bess, who is leaving for college in the fall, finds herself involved with a married man. Middle-aged Harriet is comfortable with her spinster's life until a widowed farmer comes courting. And Kate, deeply saddened by the death of her husband and the loss of their farm years before, dispenses acerbic advice to her younger cousins, while secretly battling the ghosts who live at the heart of all their lives. Critical Acclaim for The Cape Ann: "Like To Kill a Mockingbird, [it] is a story of a child's loss of innocence, of a growing awareness of just how complex life can be." -- Washington Post Book World "A fascinating, original novel." -- Minneapolis Star Tribune
