A woman looks back to her painful childhood in the rural South to solve a family mystery: “Magnificent . . . just masterful” (Ann Patchett). Ever since Ellen Tote can remember, she has dreamed of her mother slowly drowning. Now, with her own children all grown and her siblings long gone, Ellen is still haunted by her half-remembered past, and finally journeys back to her childhood for answers. Piecing together her memories of growing up among North Carolina tenant farmers in the 1940s, she articulates a story so shattering, it had long been silenced by fear and shame—in a heartrending and emotionally powerful tale from a PEN/Hemingway Award nominee and “one of the finest Southern novelists to appear in a long, long time” (The Philadelphia Inquirer). “There’s a lyric intensity and a quiet authority in Ellen’s narrative voice, and thoughtful consideration has been given to the question of how one makes peace with the griefs of the past.” —Francine Prose, People “Explores, with surprising tenderness and lyricism, family violence as well as the cruelties inherent in growing up dirt-poor in the South.” —The State (Columbia, South Carolina) “Grimsley’s delicate prose and the defiant resilience of his protagonist make reading his work a richly gratifying experience.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

On the surface, Fan Winslow appeared to be the prim and proper housekeeper of Feversham Hall. In actuality, she was secretly heading a notorious smuggling gang based off the rambling estate's stormy coast. The arrival of Feversham's new owner, Captain Lord George Claremont, however, threatened to ruin her thriving business. Having lived down the shame his rakehell father had brought upon their family, George Claremont lived by his honor and the kingdom's laws. Dubbed the Silver Lord for his feats in battle as much as for his sterling reputation, the celebrated navy hero was duty bound to stop any and all illegal activity on his property…even if the villain was a mysterious beauty with eyes no man could resist. Would turbulent passion be enough to forever unite lovers on opposite sides of the law?

Author: Frederick Marryat
Publisher: Fireship Press
In Percival Keene Marryat goes back to a character-style that he first introduced in Frank Mildmay. In both books, the "hero" is a bit of a low-life-proud, rebellious and, many times, downright mean. He was criticized for that style when Frank Mildmay first came out, so he stayed away from it for a dozen years; but, with Percival Keene, he reverted. Keene is the bastard son of an upwardly mobile captain in the Royal Navy. For social reasons, his father will not recognize him; but, instead, works behind the scenes to help him along. The book is full of the usual Marryat high-seas adventures in which the young officer is lost during a battle and thought dead, then finds his way back; confrontations with pirates, storms at sea, and so forth. But the fascination is with Keene himself. He is noble one moment, and mean-spirited the next. He shows unbelievable courage and integrity in one set of circumstances, but not in another. He is, to be sure, a low-life; but but he is an intriguing one. In many ways the book is a refreshing departure from the hero as a cross between Superman and Dudley Do-Right. Keene has flaws. So do we all. But couple that realism with Marryat's unquestioned ability to tell a sea yarn, and you have a very interesting read.

"The story begins with my father, actually, and the fact that I'm the one who's answerable for his death. It was not my first crime, as you will see, but it is the one my mother couldn't forgive." In her astonishing New York Times bestseller, acclaimed author Elizabeth George reveals the even darker truth behind this startling confession. Playing for the Ashes is a rich tale of passion, murder and love in which Inspector Thomas Lynley and Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers once again find themselves embroiled in a case where nothing--and no one--is really what it seems. Intense, suspenseful and brilliantly written, Playing for the Ashes will make readers "search out the sleuthing pair's first six adventures...a treasure," as Cosmopolitan predicted in their review.
