"A riveting feminist retelling, filled with excitement, imagination, magic, and just the right touch of darkness." -Madeline Miller, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Circe From acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Jessie Burton comes her debut middle-grade--a girl-forward fairy tale retelling of "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" about sisterhood, imagination, and bravery, lushly packaged and with beautiful full-color illustrations. For the twelve daughters of King Alberto, Queen Laurelia's death is a disaster beyond losing a mother. The king decides his daughters must be kept safe at all costs, and for the girls, those costs include their lessons, their possessions, and most importantly, their freedom. But the sisters, especially the eldest, Princess Frida, will not bend to this fate. She still has one possession her father cannot take: the power of her imagination. And so, with little but wits and ingenuity to rely on, Frida and her sisters begin their fight to be allowed to live on their own terms. The Restless Girls is a sparkling whirl of a fairy tale--one that doesn't need a prince to save the day, and instead is full of brave, resourceful, clever young women.

A thoughtful exploration of loneliness, in the tradition of Henri Nouwen's classic Reaching Out. Loneliness may be more pervasive now than at any other time in human history. Cell phones and "instant messaging" not withstanding, our longing for meaningful connections seems to increase in direct proportion to our accessibility. In The Restless Heart, Ronald Rolheiser identifies different types of loneliness and discusses the dangers and opportunities they represent in our lives. Using contemporary parables from literature, film, and his own life, he shows that loneliness can be a tremendously creative and even valuable force when it is recognized, accepted and used as a dynamic catalyst. With his trademark clarity of vision, honesty, and intelligence, Rolheiser offers a distinctively Christian approach to living an examined, involved life and presents suggestions that will free readers to discover greater meaning and fulfillment in their own lives.
Tired, hungry, lost, fogbound, shipwrecked, unable to make their way through the darkness,, Steven Faulkner and his teenage son Justin are having a wonderful time. They are on an epic journey, retracing the historic 1673 route of pioneer French explorers Louis Joliet and Jesuit Priest Jacques Marquette along the Lake Michigan shore to Green Bay, up the Fox River, then down the Wisconsin to the mighty Mississippi. The Faulkners depend on the kindness of strangers who understand that no dam is high enough to stop this intrepid pair who must walk part of their water route to portage around the works of modern man. Along the way they make news in a terrifying accident, travel through uncharted waters and create a story that puts Waterwalk in the front rank of travel literature. A poet with a sense of humor, Steven Faulkner brings the majestic American heartland to life in this unforgettable story. Waterwalk is one of the finest books ever written about an American river journey and will appeal to anyone who has a sense of adventure.
