The time has come. A massive asteroid is hurtling toward earth and will wipe out all life when it hits. The Lambs of God are preparing to slaughter the Orange Pact communities. And Captain Chris Jung has been tossed into a mundane alternate reality where the Shift never happened to languish in a soul-sucking cubicle while his counterpart from that reality awakens in a world sundered. Jamil, the organic computer, has a plan that could save the world in both realities: the Shiftiverse, where the Shift happened, and the Mundaniverse, where it didnt. Part of that plan requires that Rita Luevano venture to the furthest reaches of no mans land, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Somewhere within herself, Rita possesses a knowledge acquired from her Mundaniverse counterpart that could be the key to humanitys survival. Accompanying her is Chris Jung from the Mundaniverse, who finally gets away from the office like he always wanted to, just not in the way he imagined. Meanwhile, Meredith Jung and Ezra Rothstein prepare the Orange Pact for the inevitable onslaught by the Lambs of God while the interim leader of Monticello threatens to undermine the alliance. Despite knowing the end is coming, Meredith rallies a final stand against their oppressor. Mundaniverse Chris will be called to fight for his life while Shiftiverse Chris, lost in a world without Vicious Rabbits, will be called to be a warrior once more. And Rita will discover that saving humanity means more than simply saving the world from annihilation. Chris, Rita, and Meredith have been on a journey that began long before the world came crashing down, a journey that leads to the moment where the fate of the entire planet in both realities coalesce. Across the span of the quantum divide, each must find a strength hidden in a shared past.

Three granddaughters. Three months. One summer house. From New York Times bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe, the first two novels in the enchanting Lowcountry Summer trilogy—now available as an e-boxed set! The Summer Girls For years, Carson Muir has drifted, never really settling, certain only that a life without the ocean is a life half lived. Adrift and penniless in California, Carson is the first to return to Sea Breeze, wondering where things went wrong…until the sea she loves brings her a minor miracle. Her astonishing bond with a dolphin helps Carson renew her relationships with her sisters and face the haunting memories of her ill-fated father. As the rhythms of the island open her heart, Carson begins to imagine the next steps toward her future. In this heartwarming novel, three sisters discover the true treasures Sea Breeze offers as surprising truths are revealed, mistakes forgiven, and precious connections made that will endure long beyond one summer. The Summer Wind It’s midsummer and Eudora, nicknamed Dora, is staying at Sea Breeze, the family’s ancestral home on Sullivan’s Island. For years, Dora has played the role of the perfect wife and mother in a loveless marriage. Now her husband has filed for divorce, her child is diagnosed with autism, and her house is on the market. Dora’s façade collapses under the weight of her grief and she suffers “broken heart syndrome.” Mamaw and the girls rally around Dora—but it’s up to Dora to heal herself as she spends the summer prowling the beach, discovering the secrets of the island and her heart. This is a summer of discovery for all the women of Sea Breeze. Carson returns from Florida to face life-changing decisions, Lucille confronts a health scare, and an unexpected visitor has Harper reconsidering her life’s direction. When tropical storm winds batter the island, the women must band together and weather the tempest—both the one outside their windows and the raging sea of emotions within each of them. They must learn again what it means to be a sister. It is up to Mamaw to keep the light burning at Sea Breeze to guide the girls through the lies, the threats, and the rocky waters of indecision to home.

For most voters in Louisiana, the central question of the 1951-52 gubernatorial campaign was a simple one: which candidate would maintain the generous populist government ushered in by the legendary Huey Long? For others, many of whom were convinced that somehow Soviet agents were running amok in Louisiana, communism was the only issue worthy of discussion.Those who were fearful soon found their voice in Leander Perez, longtime boss of Plaquemines Parish and leader of the Southern States Rights movement, who warned Louisianians that a communist takeover was imminent. New Orleans Cong. Hale Boggs--a civil rights liberal and prominent Washington insider--was seen as the front runner in the election. Lucille May Grace, the longtime registrar of the state land office and one of the shrewdest politicians in Louisiana history, appeared to be his most powerful opponent. With the counsel of Perez, "Miss Lucille," as she was known throughout the state, turned the 1951-52 race upside down when she sensationally accused Boggs of being a communist. Through interviews with more than forty individuals involved in this historic election, author Garry Boulard blends oral history with long-forgotten material unearthed from more than a dozen archives. The result is an incisive survey of three Louisiana giants and how the 1951-52 elections forever changed their lives.
