Best friends forever…until life got in the way. Katherine Hill left her small New England hometown in pursuit of a dream. Now, twelve years later, she’s a high-powered cosmetics executive in Manhattan and a much glossier version of her former self, unrecognizable to her family and old friends. Not that she would know—she hasn’t been home in over a decade. Laney Marten always swore she’d never get “stuck” in Manchester, Vermont. No, she was destined to live out her glamorous big-city dreams. Instead, she wound up a young wife and mother. That was when her best friend ran out. When Katherine receives word of an inheritance from former neighbor Luella Hancock, she reluctantly returns home to the people and places she left behind. Hoping for a second chance, she’s met by an unforgiving Laney, her former best friend. And there’s someone else who’s moved on without her—someone she once loved. Tethered to their shared inheritance of Luella’s sprawling Victorian mansion, Katherine and Laney are forced to address their long-standing grudges. Through this, they come to understand that while life has taken them in different directions, ultimately the bonds of friendship and sisterhood still bind them together. But are some wounds too old and deep to mend?
Charming underachiever Jamie Garner is living a sexy slacker's life in San Francisco during the dot-com boom--avoiding his stalled career as a radio producer, barely holding on to his relationship, but surrounded by fun-loving friends. And then Jamie gets the call he's always dreaded: Teddy, the father who never accepted him, has died. It's time for the prodigal son to come home to the subdivisions and strip malls of suburban New Jersey to face the emotionally barren family he left behind years ago. Caught between the guilt he wants to shake and the grief he can't express, Jamie takes solace in a box of memorabilia he finds in the attic, marked "1960," the year his father spent in San Francisco but kept secret. Jamie is especially drawn to a moody, enigmatic photo of the stunning Dean Foster, his dad's closest friend, who headed west then mysteriously disappeared. Determined to unlock the mystery of his father, Jamie seeks out the artists and poets, the free spirits and wild men mentioned in Teddy's letters to Dean. It's a journey that takes him deep into the subcultures of San Francisco, from the bohemian heyday of the Beat Generation through the Internet mania of his contemporary world, even as it unleashes something primal, hungry, and slightly dangerous in Jamie. As his search for the elusive Dean Foster turns ever more obsessive, undermining his friendships, his income, and his fidelity to his partner, Jamie is forced to decide what he is willing to risk in the pursuit of the truth. "Engaging . . . the flow and intensity of the writing make it difficult to put Soehnlein's book down . . . With remarkably stylish and witty prose, Soehnlein keeps the reading convincing and compelling, displaying a knack for giving just enough detail to put the reader right in the scene."--The San Francisco Chronicle

Elizabeth Taylor, Arthur Godfrey, Doris Day, Ed Sullivan, Faye Emerson, Artie Shaw, Bess Myerson, Ellen Burstyn, Leon Uris, Toots Shoor, Edward R. Murrow, Robert Q. Lewis, Roy Rogers, David Susskind, Andy Rooney, George Reeves, Dr. Joyce Brothers, Robert Young, Walter Cronkite. What do all these famous people have in common? They all knew Larry Lowenstein. Famous People Who Knew Me is the story of a press agent, publicist, and promoter who worked and partied with stars and personalities of television, Broadway, radio, and film. Famous People Who Knew Me takes the reader back to the Bronx of 1919 where Larry Lowenstein was born. It tells of Larry's early years before and during the Great Depression, as well as his experiences during World War II when he served in the Army Air Forces in England, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Germany. But most significantly, it tells of his career experiences after the war during the go-go years of early television. It tells of the day that he and another press agent made the wedding bed for Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher; the evening Ed Sullivan forgot to introduce him to Elvis Presley at Studio 54; the Tournament of Roses Parade where he kept Arthur Godfrey too busy to make a pass at Bess Myerson; the late nights among café society at the Stork Club, Toots Shoor's, and 21; and the evenings when he and Yul Brynner and Faye Emerson would have drinks together at the Metropolitan Café, across from the CBS studios, and talk over that day's show, or when he and Faye and others would go to The Embers and listen as artists like Art Tatum, Marian McPartland, and Wild Bill Davison riffed their musical magic. After a productive career in New York, working for CBS Television and major public relations firms, such as Benton & Bowles, Rogers & Cowan, and General Artist Corporation, the story follows Larry to Atlanta where he continued his career in radio, television, and education, working with such Atlanta personalities as Ludlow Porch, Neal Boortz, Alonzo Crim, Henry Aaron, Maynard Jackson, and Andrew Young, as well as taking on significant roles in the Atlanta chapter of the American Jewish Committee, the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP, the Atlanta Urban League, and the Georgia Special Olympics, among many others. The story ends with Larry finishing his long career working as media coordinator at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia. Famous People Who Knew Me opens a window to a world of glamour and a life of great energy and sincerity.
This story of forgiveness tells of a little boy who does something "bad" for which he thinks he cannot be forgiven. He does a number of "good" things, but every time someone thanks him and says that he is "good," he feels "bad." His mother assures him that she can forgive him and that Jesus will as well. We never know what the "bad" thing actually is as he whispers in his mother's ear, which will allow each child to identify with the situation. Ages 5-8.
Many self-improvement books treat people as though they could be put together in segments. But we don't live in segments and don't improve much by concentrating on just one aspect of life. The author suggests that we start by learning to like ourselves. Mr. Kennedy points out a developmental process, through which we get to know ourselves, identify strengths and weaknesses and build self-esteem by building our strengths.
If You Knew Me You Would Care represents a journey taken to find the stories of women who have survived wars, violence and poverty. The accounts within go beyond tears and victimhood to reveal joy, love and forgiveness, in a project brought to life by Women for Women International, an organisation providing female survivors of war, civil strife and other conflicts with the tools and resources to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency. This work is a collaboration between women's rights activist Zainab Salbi and photographer Rennio Maifredi.
