Philip, from the future, is to blame for setting the timeline askew, which makes Maddie and Becca view him with distrust and loathing. He caused the death of their beloved father. They can never forgive him. But they will have to work with him. It’s the only way they can set things right again.

New Release-The History of Bagels in America by Marc Fintz

51rx0djXroL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

 

Title:  The History of Bagels in America

Author:    Marc Fintz

Genre: NonFiction/ History

Format: Paperback

Pages:   40 pages

Publication Date: December 1, 2019

Synopsis:

The Artisan Bagel is the most iconic food ever made in the City of New York. It has become identified and synonomous with NYC itself. While people love them, most know little about their origins, the features that make them distinct from other bread, and their ties to the history of the Jewish people. Marc Fintz sheds a light on those issues and on the movement to make the Bagel a distinctly American food, rather than a Jewish, or NYC Food. This work is transcribed from a lecture series on the history of Jewish Foods, hosted by the Davidovich Bakery, on the Lower East Side of New York City in the Summer of 2019. The work is a transcription of the July 2019 lecture on the “The History of Bagels in America” by Marc Fintz, which took place at the historic Blue Moon Hotel before a sold out crowd.

Audio Release-Little Lovely Things by Maureen Joyce Connolly

41BTr1C-KdL._SX342_

 

Title:  Lovely Little Things

Author:    Maureen Joyce Connolly

Narrated:           Elisabeth Rodgers

Genre: Fiction/ LGBT Fiction/Humorous Fiction

Format: Audio Plus kindle/paperback/

Publisher: Recorded Books

Time:   10 hours 14 minutes

Publication Date: April 2, 2019

Synopsis:

“A shattering adventure.” ― Jacquelyn Mitchard, bestselling author of The Deep End of the Ocean

Prepare to be riveted.
It’s 1993, the first Saturday in September—impossibly hot—and Claire Rawlings is driving her two girls to the daycare at the University of Chicago Hospital where, as a resident, she is scheduled for rounds. Ignoring the troublesome signs of a sudden allergic reaction, Claire exits off the freeway to safety, only to pass out cold. When she wakes up, her daughters are gone.

Vanished.

Called a “A Shattering Adventure” by best-selling author, Jaquelyn Mitchard,
LITTLE LOVELY THINGS is a haunting exploration of how tragedy transforms lives. With page-turning momentum, Connolly ties together the threads of lives shattered, hope lost, and—finally—joy restored.

Perfect for readers of Watch Me Disappear and After Anna!

Additional Praise for Little Lovely Things:
“Little Lovely Things is an insightful and moving read that is well worth the journey.” ― Vivian Schilling, bestselling author of Quietus

“Combining the suspense and razor-sharp outlook of a Gillian Flynn novel, Maureen Connolly’s debut sizzles. I finished Little Lovely Things in one heartbreaking, tear-batting gulp. Connolly takes risks that make the reader’s heart start anew. Finding shards of hope amidst the chaos of tragedy is a testament to both the writer, and the characters she creates.” ― Jenny Milchman, USA Today bestselling author of Wicked River

Featured Audio Book: Catching a Miracle by Mark J. Spinicelli

51BVhL+FUNL._SX342_-2

Title: Catching a Miracle

Author: Mark J. Spinicelli

Narrated by:  Michael Bower

Publisher:       Mark J. Spinicelli

Genre: Medical Fiction/Thriller

Format: Audio (also ebook and paperback)

Length:    6 hours 20 minutes

Publication Date: July 22, 2019

Synopsis:

Eight-year-old Shelly White is admitted to St. Theresa’s Hospital for Children for cancer treatment. In the meantime, she strikes a friendship with her fellow roommate Kristin, who is also undergoing her own battle with cancer. Dr. Gregory Wall manages the patient care for both children working tirelessly to pursue the treatment options that are available. He knows all too well that his best efforts may never be enough to save them. 

In a mystifying episode that later comes to be known as St. Theresa’s first official miracle, Shelly’s cancer seemingly disappears overnight to the utter amazement of Dr. Wall and the rest of the team at the hospital. Sadly, Kristen is not as fortunate. She eventually succumbs to her illness, even as Shelly makes her way out to leave the hospital as a fully cured and healthy little girl. 

Fast forward to 30 years later and Dr. Shelly White now works alongside Dr. Wall at the same hospital with a mission to save as many children as possible from cancer. She also starts the Kristen Foundation in honor and fond memory of her roommate who did not have the same privilege of coming out of her illness alive. 

At a fundraising event in aid of the foundation, Shelly meets advertising executive Nicholas Harris who, she soon realizes, is going to play a crucial role in changing her life and that of her patients through a cure for cancer. Nicholas and his father Salvatore have their own reasons for wanting to be part of the same journey. 

At this point, far from ending on a predictable note, Catching a Miracle soon enfolds into an unexpectedly fast-paced thrilling story involving the race to find a cure for cancer, the fight against corporate greed, and the involvement of powerful political entities who will stop at nothing to prevent the cure from being found. Listen to this book to find out:

  • The story behind Dr. Shelly White’s miraculous cancer recovery 
  • The surprising connection between Dr. White and Nick Harris at St. Theresa’s Hospital 
  • Whether Dr. White and friends will find a cure for cancer after all before the end of this book 
  • Whether the desire to save others and the indomitable spirit to find a cure will triumph over pure greed and profit 

While Catching a Miracle deals with the deeply profound theme of finding a cancer cure, it is far from a somber book. Moments of poignancy merge seamlessly with moments of humor to create a journey that’s both a testament to the faith of the human spirit as well as an inspiration to those that continue to be part of the search for a cure. A suspense-filled, action-packed, never-a-dull-moment book, part one of the three-part series, Catching a Miracle is a must-listen by first-time author Mark Spinicelli.
