She's a tomboy. He's the boy next door. With three older brothers, Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, has always been more comfortable calling the shots on a basketball court than flirting with the opposite sex. So when her police officer dad demands she get a summer job to pay for the latest in a long line of speeding tickets, she's more than a little surprised to find herself working at a chichi boutique and going out with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game. Charlie seeks late-night refuge in her backyard, talking out her problems with her neighbor and honorary fourth brother, Braden, sitting back-to-back against the fence that separates them. Braden may know her better than anyone. But there's a secret Charlie's keeping that even he hasn't figured out—she's fallen for him. Hard. She knows what it means to go for the win, but if spilling her secret means losing him for good, the stakes just got too high. On the Fence is a sweet and satisfying read about finding yourself and finding love where you least expect it.

Herman Rosenblat was just 11 years old when German soldiers rounded up his family during a raid on a Jewish ghetto in Poland. Sent to Buchenwald, Herman was put to work in the crematorium, shovelling dead bodies into the furnace, trying to survive in a world of hunger, fear and death. One day, walking by the fence, he saw a small girl on the other side. She smiled at him, and when he asked desperately if she had any food, she pulled an apple out of her pocket and threw it over the fence. As he ran off, afraid of being caught and shot, he heard her whisper come back tomorrow. For six months, they met every day. She threw him an apple or a hunk of bread. They never spoke, but the warmth of her smile and the food she gave him kept him alive and convinced him that she was an angel, sent to him by his mother. Herman was moved to another camp, and then eventually freed by Russian troops. He moved to England and then to New York. Fifteen years later, in 1957, Herman was set up on a blind date by a friend. Roma charmed him from the start with her warmth and beauty.It was only towards the end of their date that Herman touched on their shared history and asked her gently how she had survived the Holocaust.Roma explained that her family had bought forged papers to hide the fact that they were Jewish, and that they'd lived quietly on a farm next to a camp. She said that she had thrown apples over to fence to a starving young boy every day until he'd told her one day that he was being moved and not to come again. She'd always prayed that he had survived

In this page-turning novel set in the Depression-era South, New York Times bestselling author Mary Monroe transports readers to a small Alabama town where home is not always a sanctuary, and two neighboring families let pleasantries mask increasing resentment . . . Bootlegging was Milton and Yvonne Hamilton’s ticket out of poverty, prison time, and plain bad luck. Now they’ve moved on to a bigger, richer pool of clientele right in their own respectable, new middle-class backyard. And their growing friendship with the seemingly perfect couple Joyce and Odell Watson is proving golden in more ways than one . . . As Milton soon learns, Odell is hiding an outside family and dubious business dealings. It’s the perfect recipe for a blackmail scheme that will help Milton hide his own dirty secrets—even from Yvonne. Better yet, he can take ever more dangerous risks to ace out his liquor-smuggling rivals. And Yvonne, emboldened by her husband’s new gravy train, delights in tormenting Joyce about everything the snobbish matron doesn’t have, especially children. But even a winning hand can be played too far. Pushed past their limits, Odell and Joyce will play on Milton’s careless boasting to get him and Yvonne out of their lives for good . . . Praise for One House Over “Impossible to put down.” —Susan Holloway Scott, author of I, Eliza Hamilton “Monroe reveals sympathetic aspects and complex motivations for each character in this engrossing setting.” —Booklist

The book shows the life of a young family in a new, struggling country. It is an insight into a different culture, without prejudice, as it has been lived day by day. It also lets you take part in the advancing of living standard of middleclass families in Asia. You learn that there are other ways of life that can lead you to success and happiness. Some chapters seem to be quite amusing, now that they are long behind. I actually wrote these chapters for my family, to tell them about the Pakistan they do not know. My daughter felt, this had a wider interest for other people, who wanted to know about the country and its day to day problems in a different way from the propaganda available on TV. The story is very personal, and I can not guarantee for the things I wrote about politics for instance; this reflects my personal opinion.

The overpowering scent of roses mingled with an indistinguishable musty smell set the stage for my Grandmother Gus's funeral. A white satin pillow cushioned my grandmother's head as she lay quietly in a mahogany casket fit for a queen. Shadows played across her face, making it appear as though her eyelashes fluttered occasionally, and a smile seemed to tug at her tightly pursed lips as though she was amused at the activities surrounding her. Even in death, Grandmother Gus was intimidating to the grandchildren she had terrorized for years. Reunited with the family members who had made childhood terrible, Caryn, along with Patrick and Michael, could still feel the evil from those days lurking, causing Caryn's memories to surface and collide with the present. Aunt Maxine's drunken rampages, Aunt Stella's flamboyant sexuality, and her father's harsh and excessive punishments are finally unlocked from the heart that held them tight for years in fear of the possible consequences such revelations could bring. But Caryn also remembers the light moments-ice-skating on the lake, watching her cousin prepare for solos, riding bicycles until dark with her Maywood friends-that helped her and her brothers relieve the pain and overcome the dark moments. And she remembers her mother, who despite the circumstances did all she could to instill Christian values in the children more familiar with dark than light. Travel with Caryn back to the place with the Hollyhocks on the Fence as she finds strength in overcoming evil.

Dear Reader, Our grandchildren came to us asking for help with their school assignment to uncover their family ancestry. The more they learned, the more intrigued they became. Quite frankly, once I dove into my own extensive research and got reacquainted with my father's thoughtfully documented family history, the more excited I became. The words and stories started to flow. It is amazing how much information one's mind retains. Once tapped, your memories become a treasure chest begging to be revealed to the generations now and hereafter. Uncover the amazing background of our ancestors in Dresden, Germany. Embark on our journey through the horrifying years of World War II, our desperate flight from the Russians in February 1945 that ended in Bavaria where we encountered our first Americans. Follow us through the difficult postwar years of trying to readjust and rebuild our lives-all seen through the eyes of a child. Be further captivated with the compassionate, thoughtful, and humorous description of our family's exciting endeavors through the years until our ultimate emigration from Germany to the United States. It lends an interesting viewpoint during the family's immigration process and our impression of our new home here in the United States. This is an amazing study of historical events not widely publicized and the courageous people who had to face life in and beyond them. It is not a morbid recount of unpleasant occurrences, but a story told in a factual and honest way, sprinkled with good humor and a positive, hopeful view towards the future. Gisela Bierling-Greitzer, the author of On the Other Side of the Fence, is the second child born to the eleventh generation of the Bierling family in Germany. She now lives in Westchester County, north of New York City, with her American-born husband.
