Every story has a beginning, a journey, and an end. Author Vera Leinvebers’s story begins in her beloved homeland of Latvia, just prior to the outbreak of World War II. Her early childhood is filled with joy and music, but this idyllic, carefree existence is irrevocably silenced by the advancing drumbeats of war. The journey that follows proves so intense and harrowing that in order to fi nd the emotional separation necessary to face her traumatic childhood memories, Leinvebers fi lters her experiences through the eyes of a young Latvian girl called Lara. No Time to Cry tells the story of Lara’s harrowing ordeal in war-ravaged Europe. It is a story about brutality, hatred, and unimaginable loss, but it is also a lasting testament to one little girl’s indomitable will to survive. When she loses nearly everything she holds dear, Lara desperately clings to the all that remains—the music indelibly etched in her memory and a small, smooth stone that she retrieved from the charred remains of her former home. That small stone became her symbol of strength. If it could survive the inferno and devastation, so could she. Join Lara as a traveller on the path of her war-ravaged childhood, a path that clearly proves that no matter how much one might suffer, when the goal is to survive there is simply no time to cry.

Isabelle has life right where she wants it after recovering from heartbreak and deceit—she has the perfect apartment, amazing friends, a flourishing career, and financial security... ...Until she meets Death's right-hand man one fateful night, and events take place which alter that life, sending her spiraling into one which is beyond her wildest imaginings. And she is no longer Isabelle. She’s thrust quickly into the most secretive inner-workings of Death itself, as well as an otherworldly dominion of ancient Celtic magic, and beings that we were taught as children were only fictional creations of wildly whimsical minds. She yearns for the now unmistakable simplicity of her old life; this one is full of dangers, unanswered questions and cryptic dreams. And whispers, haunting whispers in her mind that send shivers through her…but in the most agreeable way. After one particularly anomalous dream in which she learns of the Nine While Nine Legacy, things get truly precarious. Now someone sees her as a risk …and wants to eliminate her. But she falls under the protection of her guardian—unless she leaves his territory—which is the one thing wants the most…and wants the least. What if everything you believed to be true, you discovered to be false? What if everything you believed to be false, you discovered to truly be....?

Celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the most popular and enduring band ever: “Even the most hardcore Deadheads will be impressed by this obsessively complete look at the Grateful Dead’s lyrics” (Publishers Weekly). The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics is an authoritative text, providing standard versions of all the original songs you thought you knew forwards and backwards. These are some of the best-loved songs in the modern American songbook. They are hummed and spoken among thousands as counterculture code and recorded by musicians of all stripes for their inimitable singability and obscure accessibility. How do they do all this? To provide a context for this formidable body of work, of which his part is primary, Robert Hunter has written a foreword that goes to the heart of the matter. And the annotations on sources provide a gloss on the lyrics, which goes to the roots of Western culture as they are incorporated into them. An avid Grateful Dead concertgoer for more than two decades, David Dodd is a librarian who brings to the work a detective’s love of following a clue as far as it will take him. Including essays by Dead lyricists Robert Hunter and John Perry and Jim Carpenter’s original illustrations, whimsical elements in the lyrics are brought to light, showcasing the American legend that is present in so many songs. A gorgeous keepsake edition of the Dead’s official annotated lyrics, The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics is an absolute must-have for the fiftieth anniversary—you won’t think of this cultural icon the same way again. In fact, founding band member Bob Weir said: “This book is great. Now I’ll never have to explain myself.”

Nominated for a 2014 Lime Award for Excellence in Fiction Named a Best Book of Summer 2014 by Publishers Weekly Named a Pick of the Week for the week of June 30th by Publishers Weekly "An earnest, well-done historical novel that skillfully blends fact and fiction." --Publishers Weekly "A profound story of how one unforeseen event may tear a family apart, but another can just as unexpectedly bring them back together again." --Publishers Weekly, Best Book of Summer 2014 Pick "Solomon enticingly described the novel Sing in the Morning, Cry at Night by Barbara J. Taylor (Akashic), set in a coal-mining town in 1913, as 'one of those sit on the couch and don't bother me' reads." --Shelf Awareness, NCIBA Spring Rep Picks "An absolute gem of a book filled with beautiful characters and classical writing techniques rarely seen in modern literature." --The Christian Manifesto, Top Fiction Pick of 2014 "This story is at once poignant and hopeful, spiced up by such characters as Billy Sunday, the revivalist, and Grief, the specter who haunts Grace to the very edge of sanity. A rich debut." --Historical Novel Society "Like Dickens, the novel faces family tragedy, in this case the town blaming 8-year-old Violet Morgan for her older sister's death. As her parents fall victim to their own vices, Violet learns how to form her own friendships to survive." --Arts.Mic "A fantastic novel worthy of the greatest accolades. Writing a book about a historical event can be difficult, as is crafting a bestseller, but Barbara J. Taylor is successful at both." --Downtown Magazine "Taylor's careful attention to detail and her deep knowledge of the community and its people give the novel a welcome gravity." --The Columbus Dispatch "One of the most compelling books I've ever read...a haunting story that will stay with the reader long after reading this novel." --Story Circle Book Reviews "Rave reviews are pouring in for this historical novel of a family tragedy." --The Halifax Reader, "6 New Books to Look for in July" "This well-written book is peopled with characters the reader can really care about and captures the feeling of a gritty twentieth century coal mining community." --Breakthrough, newsletter of the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation "Like all good historical fiction, I learned from this novel." --Time 2 Read "This book has...prizewinner written all over it....Worth the read!" --I've Read This "This haunting story of tragedy and hope in an early twentieth century mining town is...an expertly crafted arrow that shoots straight for the heart. Reminiscent of classics such as How Green Was My Valley...this book is a must-read for fans of character-driven, authentic historical fiction." --Amy Drown Blog Almost everyone in town blames eight-year-old Violet Morgan for the death of her nine-year-old sister, Daisy. Sing in the Morning, Cry at Night opens on September 4, 1913, two months after the Fourth of July tragedy. Owen, the girls' father, "turns to drink" and abandons his family. Their mother Grace falls victim to the seductive powers of Grief, an imagined figure who has seduced her off-and-on since childhood. Violet forms an unlikely friendship with Stanley Adamski, a motherless outcast who works in the mines as a breaker boy. During an unexpected blizzard, Grace goes into premature labor at home and is forced to rely on Violet, while Owen is "off being saved" at a Billy Sunday Revival. Inspired by a haunting family story, Sing in the Morning, Cry at Night blends real life incidents with fiction to show how grace can be found in the midst of tragedy.

A memoir by the woman who knew Bob Marley best--his wife, Rita. Rita Marley grew up in the slums of Trench Town, Jamaica. Abandoned by her mother at a very young age, she was raised by her aunt. Music ran in Rita's family, and even as a child her talent for singing was pronounced. By the age of 18, Rita was an unwed mother, and it was then that she met Bob Marley at a recording studio in Trench Town. Bob and Rita became close friends, fell in love, and soon, she and her girlfriends were singing backup for the Wailers. At the ages of 21 and 19, Bob and Rita were married. The rest is history: Bob Marley and the Wailers set Jamaica and the world on fire. But while Rita displayed blazing courage, joy, and an indisputable devotion to her husband, life with Bob was not easy. There were his liaisons with other women--some of which produced children and were conducted under Rita's roof. The press repeatedly reported that Bob was unmarried to preserve his "image." But Rita kept her self-respect, and when Bob succumbed to cancer in 1981, she was at his side. In the years that followed, she became a force in her own right -- as the Bob Marley Foundation's spokesperson and a performer in her reggae group, the I-Three. Written with author Hettie Jones, No Woman No Cry is a no-holds-barred account of life with one of the most famous musicians of all time. In No Woman No Cry, readers will learn about the never-before-told details of Bob Marley's life, including: How Rita practiced subsistence farming when first married to Bob to have food for her family. How Rita rode her bicycle into town with copies of Bob's latest songs to sell. How Rita worked as a housekeeper in Delaware to help support her family when her children were young. Why Rita chose to befriend some of the women with whom Bob had affairs and to give them advice on rearing the children they had with Bob. The story of the attack on Bob which almost killed the two of them. Bob's last wishes, dreams, and hopes, as well as the details of his death, such as who came to the funeral (and who didn't).

It was just the two of them in the gallery. Lobo turned to JK, Van Gough was intensely disturbed you know. He saw the world through different eyes. Just look. Who in their right mind could imagine a night like that? He swept his long arm out and pointed at the painting in front of them. The tiny canvas contained an image of stars surrounded by halos of light through blue-black space and a landscape undulating with energy. His mind reeled as he was abruptly dragged back toward the dreamscape. His heart raced as he struggled to compose himself. Im sorry. This is fascinating but Im late for a meeting. I have to run. Lobo laughed and the shadow of something alarming emerged from within his sophisticated exterior. The eyes that looked back at JK glittered with an animal intensity. Well you can run, but you cant hide Mr. Kimble. JKs life is in ruin. He is a reluctant dreamer in a world where dreaming is a disease. He has lost his status, his job all his money and is on the run to save his life. His only allies are a street gang, a madman and a beautiful angel he doesnt believe in.

Sometimes the road to justice leads right back home. . . Two years after her mother's murder, Dr. Kendra Hamilton has returned to the mean streets of Dunhill County to bring the killer to justice--something the courts failed to do. When Luke Bertrand used his fortune to walk away a free man, Kendra walked away, too. Now she can no longer fight the ghosts of the past as they beckon her to make Luke pay for his crime--even if it costs Kendra her life. But she doesn't count on getting distracted by another troubling case--that of a stunning young woman with the mental capacity of a child and the sickly father who cannot care for her. When the man is accused of a heinous crime against his own daughter, Kendra knows only one person can help: the lover she left behind, former homicide detective, Richard T. Marvel. Since Kendra left, all Rich has wanted is peace--and the freedom to drink himself into oblivion. When she re-appears, asking for his help, he can barely hide his bitterness. But fate soon intervenes, and Rich and Kendra find themselves delving into a dangerous morass of lies and corruption. As they discover scandalous connections between the two cases, it becomes clear that all the unfinished business of the past--matters of life, death, and love--is about to come to an explosive finale. . .
