Although child development may seem automatic, each phase of it is unique and builds on what has gone before, linking together like an intricate puzzle. Professionals agree that developmental difficulties are best identified and dealt with as early as possible. With this in mind, in The Precious Years, vastly experienced occupational therapist Jacqui Couper equips parents with the knowledge they will need to properly monitor the developmental progress of their children and to seek help when they are concerned about any aspect of it. Information based on years of research and experience is presented in an accessible and readable way, and the author’s profound insights into all phases of child development and the needs of parents in caring for children who may be different are clearly and unambiguously expressed. The Precious Years is a book for modern parents who do not have the luxury of growing up in extended families, and who want to be the best parents they can be.

July 1910: A gruesome discovery has been made at 39 Hilldrop Crescent, Camden. Chief Inspector Walter Dew of Scotland Yard did not expect the house to be empty. Nor did he expect to find a body in the cellar. Buried under the flagstones are the remains of Cora Crippen, former music-hall singer and wife of Dr. Hawley Crippen. No one would have thought the quiet, unassuming Dr. Crippen capable of murder, yet the doctor and his mistress have disappeared from London, and now a full-scale hunt for them has begun. Across the Channel in Antwerp, the S.S. Montrose has just set off on its two-week voyage to North America. Slipping in among the first-class passengers is a Mr. John Robinson, accompanied by his teenage son, Edmund. The pair may be hoping for a quiet, private voyage, but in the close confines of a luxury ocean liner, anonymity is rare. And with others aboard looking for romance, or violence, or escape from their past in Europe, it will take more than just luck for the Robinsons to survive the voyage unnoticed. An accomplished, intricately plotted novel, John Boyne's Crippen brilliantly reimagines the amazing escape attempt of one of history's most notorious killers and marks the outstanding American debut of one of Ireland's best young novelists.

Don’t miss this latest installment in Arne Dahl’s acclaimed thriller series, winner of the German Crime Writing Prize. Stockholm’s Intercrime team—a specialized group created to investigate violent, international crime—has been split up, their leader forced into early retirement, and his officers reassigned to mundane cases. Detectives Arto Söderstedt and Viggo Norlander answer calls around the city, Gunnar Nyberg is on the child abuse team, Jorge Chavez is immersed in dull research tasks, Paul Hjelm and Kerstin Holm are assigned to the meaningless murder of a young soccer supporter in a pub. But a series of precisely targeted bomb attacks—in a high-security prison, a car involved in a drug deal, and a dark suburban street—brings the Intercrime team back together, urgently. There is something dangerous approaching Sweden, and they are the only people who can do anything to stop it.

And also of the beauty, the silence, the stench of fear, the crack of rifles, the gleam of blood, the feel of death beneath ones blade.

Awaiting the Army of the Cumberland were thirty-five thousand Confederate troops well supported by artillery, and entrenched atop a strongly fortified ridge. There was absolutely no chance the men of the Cumberland could take the ridge. Almost every Union general thought that to assault it would be suicide; yet when the men captured the base rifle, they rested only briefly then went on to scale the ridge itself. What followed was probably the most outstanding assault of the Civil War. The men of the Army of the Cumberland completely routed the Rebel forces, compelling them to retreat to Georgia. At the time, the battle was hailed throughout the country as a miracle, for the men not only took an unassailable position, they did so without orders from Grant or any other Union officer. Why the men left the base rifle pit to attack the ridge has been debated for years. The Boys of Chattanooga is the story of the siege and battle for Chattanooga and that heroic charge up Missionary Ridge.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Underground Railroad Colson Whitehead’s triumphant novel is on one level a multifaceted retelling of the story of John Henry, the black steel-driver who died outracing a machine designed to replace him. On another level it’s the story of a disaffected, middle-aged black journalist on a mission to set a record for junketeering who attends the annual John Henry Days festival. It is also a high-velocity thrill ride through the tunnel where American legend gives way to American pop culture, replete with p. r. flacks, stamp collectors, blues men , and turn-of-the-century song pluggers. John Henry Days is an acrobatic, intellectually dazzling, and laugh-out-loud funny book that will be read and talked about for years to come.
