Book The Banty House Description/Summary:

A homeless young woman finds an unexpected family in beloved New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown's novel of healing hearts and new beginnings in a small Texas town. In the fading town of Rooster, Texas, all that's really left is a service station, a church...and the Banty House, a long-ago Depression-era brothel. For more than seventy-five years, Betsy, Connie, and Kate Carson have called their mama's house a home. The three eccentric sisters get by just fine with their homemade jams and jellies, a little moonshine on the side, and big hearts always open to strangers. Like Ginger Andrews. An abandoned teen with a baby on the way and nowhere to go, she's given a room to call her own for as long as she wants. The kind invitation is made all the sweeter when Ginger meets the sisters' young handyman, Sloan Baker. But with a past as broken as Ginger's, he's vowed never to get close to anyone again. As a season of change unfolds, Ginger and Sloan might discover a warm haven to heal in the Banty House, a place to finally belong, where hope and dreams never fade.

Book Hummingbird Lane Description/Summary:

"Ever since childhood, Emma Merrill and Sophia Mason were bound by a passion for painting. Like all young best friends, they promised to never lose touch. But the girls came from different worlds, and their paths diverged when Emma went to an elite college and Sophie worked her way through state school. After a decade they've reconnected, both in a time of need. Emma has been struggling with depression since her college years, and she's lost herself under the suffocating influence of her controlling and manipulative mother. Sophie, under pressure to prepare for an upcoming gallery show, whisks the fragile Emma away to a small artist's colony in south Texas. It's a raw and beautiful landscape where wildflowers bloom, and perhaps Emma can bloom there, too. In the company of such nurturing and creative strangers, especially Josh Corlen, the openhearted manager of the commune, Emma allows herself to breathe again."--Back cover.

Book Whittington Description/Summary:

The power of reading is beautifully captured in this 2006 Newbery Honor-winning book. Bernie keeps a barn full of animals the rest of the world has no use for–two retired trotters, a rooster, some banty hens, and a Muscovy duck with clipped wings who calls herself The Lady. When the cat called Whittington shows up one day, it is to the Lady that he makes an appeal to secure a place in the barn. The Lady’s a little hesitant at first, but when the cat claims to be a master ratter, that clinches it. Bernie’ s orphaned grandkids, Abby and Ben, come to the barn every day to help feed the animals. Abby shares her worry that Ben can’t really read yet and that he refuses to go to Special Ed. Whittington and the Lady decide that Abby should give Ben reading lessons in the barn. It is a balm for Ben when, having toughed out the daily lesson, Whittington comes to tell, in tantalizing installments, the story handed down to him from his nameless forebearer, Dick Whittington’s cat–the legend of the lad born into poverty in rural England during the Black Death, who runs away to London to seek his fortune. This is an unforgettable tale about how learning to read saves one little boy. It is about the healing, transcendent power of storytelling and how, if you have loved ones surrounding you and good stories to tell, to listen to, and to read, you have just about everything of value in this world.

Book The Sisters Café Description/Summary:

New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown's contemporary romance is a delightfully fresh take on modern love. Cathy Andrews has a choice: marry Mr. Safe-But-Boring, or take a chance on finding herself. Cathy Andrews wants it all: a husband, a baby, and a little house in her charming small town of Cadillac, Texas. With all that she's gone through in her past, she's earned her happily ever after and is more than ready to put down some long-term roots. The trouble is, she's no longer sure the reliable man she agreed to marry is the right guy. Sure, he's got great teeth and hair, but he's also got dreams of being a politician—and Cathy doesn't know if she's ready to be just arm candy to a man who doesn't stir her blood. It'll take the help of her twin sister to set her back on a path to being the woman she always knew she could be. Marty Andrews has got a thing or two to say about Cathy's duller-than-a-doorknob fiancé. She thinks Cathy's meant for great things, not settling for second-best. Marty's determined to see her sister find a truly happy life, so she gathers up their squad of sisters-by-choice to help Cathy learn to let go of what she thinks is right...and become the woman she was meant to be. Get ready to start a ruckus: What could be better than twin sister shenanigans, best friends who have your back no matter what, and a whole lot of small town Texas love? (Previously published as The Blue-Ribbon Jalapeno Society Jubilee and What Happens in Texas by Carolyn Brown.)

Book Ponzi's Scheme Description/Summary:

You’ve heard of the scheme. Now comes the man behind it. In Mitchell Zuckoff's exhilarating book, the first nonfiction account of Charles Ponzi, we meet the charismatic rogue who launched the most famous and extraordinary scam in the annals of American finance. It was a time when anything seemed possible–instant wealth, glittering fame, fabulous luxury–and for a run of magical weeks in the spring and summer of 1920, Charles Ponzi made it all come true. Promising to double investors’ money in three months, the dapper, charming Ponzi raised the “rob Peter to pay Paul” scam to an art form and raked in millions at his office in downtown Boston. Ponzi’s Scheme is the amazing true story of the irresistible scoundrel who launched the most successful scheme of financial alchemy in modern history–and uttered the first roar of the Roaring Twenties. Ponzi may have been a charlatan, but he was also a wonderfully likable man. His intentions were noble, his manners impeccable, his sales pitch enchanting. Born to a genteel Italian family, he immigrated to the United States with big dreams but no money. Only after he became hopelessly enamored of a stenographer named Rose Gnecco and persuaded her to marry him did Ponzi light on the means to make his dreams come true. His true motive was not greed but love. With rich narrative skill, Mitchell Zuckoff conjures up the feverish atmosphere of Boston during the weeks when Ponzi’s bubble grew bigger and bigger. At the peak of his success, Ponzi was taking in more than $2 million a week. And then his house of cards came crashing down–thanks in large part to the relentless investigative reporting of Richard Grozier’s Boston Post. In Zuckoff's hands, Ponzi is no mere swindler; instead he is appealing and magnetic, a colorful and poignant figure, someone who struggled his whole life to attain great wealth and who sincerely believed–to the very end–that he could have made good on his investment promises if only he’d had enough time. Ponzi is a classic American tale of immigrant life and the dream of success, and the unexpectedly moving story of a man who–for a fleeting, illusory moment–attained it all.
