"Unglaublich lesenswert!" The Times "Es bringt einen dazu, sich zu fragen, was es heißt, ein Mensch zu sein und was man selbst in vergleichbarer Situation tun würde." The Sun "Faszinierend und fesselnd." People "Poetisch, nachdenklich und aufwühlend ... Mott reflektiert wieder eindringlich, wie die wirkliche Welt wohl reagieren würde, wenn das Unmögliche geschieht." Kirkus Review "Es gibt einen Namen für dieses Gefühl, Macon: Kindheit. Und wenn sie vorbei ist, ist sie vorbei. Und die Vorstellung, dass die Welt ein magischer Ort ist, verschwindet mit ihr. In jenem Moment wirst du erwachsen und verlierst deine Fähigkeit, das Wunderbare in all den Dingen zu sehen. Von da an siehst du nur noch, wie sich alles seinem Ende nähert." Während einer Flugschau im idyllischen Stone Temple stürzt eine Propellermaschine ab. Der beste Freund der 13-jährigen Ava, Wash, wird schwer verletzt. Alle rechnen damit, dass der Junge stirbt. Doch dann legt Ava ihre Hände auf seine Brust, und die Wunden verschwinden. Das Wunder von Stone Temple geht um die Welt; tausende Pilger bedrängen Ava, ihnen zu helfen. Doch sie kann unmöglich alle retten, denn jede Heilung raubt ihr Lebenskraft. Aber steht es ihr zu, über Leben und Tod zu entscheiden? Als das Schicksal dann bei ihrer Familie zuschlägt, steht sie vor der schwersten Entscheidung ihres Lebens ...

A CLASSIC FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF UNDER MAGNOLIA The author who unforgettably captured the experience of starting a new life in Tuscany in bestselling travel memoirs expands her horizons to immerse herself—and her readers—in the sights, aromas, and treasures of twelve new special places. A Year in the World is vintage Frances Mayes—a celebration of the allure of travel, of serendipitous pleasures found in unlikely locales, of memory woven into the present, and of a joyous sense of quest. An ideal travel companion, Frances Mayes brings to the page the curiosity of an intrepid explorer, remarkable insights into the wonder of the everyday, and a compelling narrative style that entertains as it informs. With her beloved Tuscany as a home base, Mayes travels to Spain, Portugal, France, the British Isles, and to the Mediterranean world of Turkey, Greece, the South of Italy, and North Africa. In Andalucía, she relishes the intersection of cultures. She cooks in Portugal, gathers ideas in the gardens of England and Scotland, takes a literary pilgrimage to Burgundy, discovers an ideal place to live in Mantova, and explores the essential Moroccan city of Fez. She rents houses among ordinary residents, shops at neighborhood markets, wanders the back streets, and everywhere contemplates the concept of home. While in Greece, she follows the classic Homeric voyage across the Aegean, lives in a bougainvillea-draped stone house in Crete, and then drives deep into the Mani. In Turkey with friends, she sails the ancient coast, hiking to archaeological sites and snorkeling over sunken Byzantine towns. Weaving together personal perceptions and informed commentary on art, architecture, history, landscape, and social and culinary traditions of each area, Mayes brings the immediacy of life in her temporary homes to the reader. An illuminating and passionate book that will be savored by all who loved Under the Tuscan Sun, A Year in the World is travel writing at its peak. Now with an excerpt from Frances Mayes's latest southern memoir, Under Magnolia

A haunting southern tale of long-buried family secrets by the New York Times bestselling author of Under the Tuscan Sun and Under Magnolia In her celebrated memoirs of life in Tuscany, Frances Mayes writes masterfully about people in a powerful and shaping place. In Swan, her first novel, she has created an equally intimate world, rich with striking characters and intriguing twists of fate, that hearkens back to her southern roots. The Masons are a prominent but now fragmented family who have lived for generations in Swan, an edenic, hidebound small town in Georgia. As Swan opens, a bizarre crime pulls Ginger Mason home from her life as an archeologist in Italy: The body of her mother, Catherine, a suicide nineteen years before, has been mysteriously exhumed. Reunited on new terms with her troubled, isolated brother J.J., who has never ventured far from Swan, the Mason children grapple with the profound effects of their mother's life and death on their own lives. When a new explanation for Catherine’s death emerges, and other closely guarded family secrets rise to the surface as well, Ginger and J.J. are confronted with startling truths about their family, a particular ordeal in a family and a town that wants to keep the past buried. Beautifully evoking the rhythms and idiosyncrasies of the deep South while telling an utterly compelling story of the complexity of family ties, Swan marks the remarkable fiction debut of one of America’s best-loved writers. Now with an excerpt from Frances Mayes's latest southern memoir, Under Magnolia
