Book Description:

Finding inspiration where she least expects it, one woman’s life is about to change forever. Life had not always been kind to Georgette.
She grew up with an alcoholic father and an enabling mother. To help see her through the bad times, she clings to the loving memory of a
childhood trip to Martha’s Vineyard.

Now an adult, Georgette works as a nurse and has returned to the island to start her life over. Then opportunity arrives in the most unlikely of places as she becomes the private nurse for the well-known island resident Mr. S. The prize-winning novelist and Georgette become friends, and he opens her mind to new possibilities.
Soon everything changes when she encounters the mysterious Dock.

Georgette isn’t quite sure about him but finds him irresistible. She quickly loses herself in her relationship despite the inherent dangers that come with him. Torn between the future or spiraling into a life she tried so hard to leave behind, Georgette must make her most important decision ever.

Sometimes escaping the past isn’t as easy as it appears.

She gets lost on the Martha’s Vineyard island every summer and finds herself all over again year after year, reigniting her passion for writing in the magical place that inspired it.

Book Description:

Eighth graders Jamie and Clara are opposites in almost every way: Jamie is a snowboarder threatened by failing grades, secretly consumed with worry about his brother fighting a war in Afghanistan, while Clara is a high achieving newcomer having survived Hurricane Katrina, helping her mother and younger brother adjust while feverishly trying to reach her father who returned to a devastated Puerto Rico with no phone service. Yet despite their differences, they remain good friends….that is until their differing opinions and perspectives on life erupt into an argument about the impacts of an 1815 volcanic explosion that led to deep snow in June, disrupting their science class and jeopardizing their academic futures. Result—debate the facts in front of the class or have their grades altered. Neither can afford this.


Working competitively on the science debate project, both teens come to see that today’s current man-made disasters are one of the greatest threats to their future. As their turbulent home lives exacerbate their tumultuous teen lives, concern and empathy for each other grow as they work together in surprising ways to empower their generation against global warming.
