As the best-selling author of Exodus, Mila 18, QB VII, and Trinity, Leon Uris blazed a path to celebrity with books that readers could not put down. Uris’s thirteen novels sold millions of copies, spent months on the best-seller lists, appeared in fifty languages, and have been adapted into equally popular movies and TV miniseries. Few other writers equaled Uris’s fame in the mid-twentieth century. His success fueled the rise of mass-market paperbacks, movie tie-ins, and celebrity author tours. Beloved by the public, Uris was, not surprisingly, dismissed by literary critics. Until now, his own life and work—as full of drama as his fiction—have never been the subject of a book. In Leon Uris: Life of a Best Seller, Ira Nadel traces Uris from his disruptive youth to his life-changing experiences as a marine in World War II. These experiences, coupled with Uris’s embrace of his Judaism and desire to write, led to his unprecedented success and the lavish excesses of a career as a best-selling author. Nadel reveals that Uris lived the adventures he described, including his war experiences in the Pacific (Battle Cry), life-threatening travels in Israel (Exodus), visit to Communist Poland (Mila 18), libel trial in Britain (QB VII), and dangerous sojourn in fractious Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic (Trinity). Nadel also demonstrates that Uris’s talent for writing action-packed, yet thoroughly researched, novels meshed perfectly with the public’s desire to revisit and understand the tumultuous events of recent history. This made him far more popular (and wealthy) than more literary authors, while paving the way for writers such as Irving Wallace and Tom Clancy.

The natural beauty of Monhegan Island has continuously attracted generations of artists, day-trippers, and summer sojourners. White Head, Pulpit Rock, and Cathedral Woods are names that resonate throughout New England and beyond. Long before the first ferry full of seasonal visitors arrived, the Monhegan Island fishermen had established a permanent community on the island, scratching out an existence on a remote offshore outpost. As early as 1890, prominent artists Robert Henri and George Bellows, followed by Rockwell Kent and Jamie Wyeth, captured the magnificence of Monhegan. They shared the cliffs and coves with the lighthouse keepers, carpenters, lobstermen, and the island people.

During the past year, Emily Walker has been thrilled to watch each of her sisters fall in love one after the other. Having stepped into her late mother's shoes nearly two decades ago, Emily has always put her family first. A family that also includes Michael Bennet. Tall, strong and good with his hands, he moved in as a teenager after the tragic death of his parents. But while the rest of her sisters look at Michael like a brother, Emily has always had to fight against seeing him as something more. So much more... Michael owns the island's top construction company, but he's never too busy to help out at the rambling Walker house whenever one of them needs him to pitch in. Especially Emily, the Walker sister he's had a major crush on since the very first day he set eyes on her. The time was never right to turn their friendship into anything more, but after so many years of unrequited love, he can't hold back his feelings anymore. When Michael surprises Emily at her sister's wedding with his declaration of love, she can't help but wonder if her best friend was actually more all along? Maybe even her one true love that will last forever...
