Following his acclaimed New York Times bestseller Did You Ever Have a Family, Bill Clegg returns with a “delicate, deeply observed, and deftly crafted” (Nickolas Butler, author of Shotgun Lovesongs) second novel about the complicated bonds and breaking points of friendship, the corrosive forces of secrets, the heartbeat of longing, and the redemption found in forgiveness. A retired widow in rural Connecticut wakes to an unexpected visit from her childhood best friend whom she hasn’t seen in forty-nine years. A man arrives at a Pennsylvania hotel to introduce his estranged father to his newborn daughter and finds him collapsed on the floor of the lobby. A sixty-seven-year-old taxi driver in Kauai receives a phone call from the mainland that jars her back to a traumatic past. These seemingly disconnected lives come together as half-century-old secrets begin to surface. It is in this moment that Bill Clegg reminds us how choices—to connect, to betray, to protect—become our legacy. “Written in lyrical, beautiful prose that makes even waking up seem like a poetic event” (Good Morning America), this novel is a feat of storytelling, capturing sixty years within the framework of one fateful day.

The book starts by asking what is creative aging? And suggests it involves a long process that grows from all of life's experience, if you have the courage to learn the lessons given to you by your own unique life journey. It shows how difficult it is to age positively in a culture that denies and denigrates aging. At age 85, the author, Ruby Abrahams uses her own experience and that of others she has known, to suggest ways of examining the life experience, so that lessons can be learned. Thus, older people become 'elders' growing in their own wisdom and contributing with that wisdom to their families and communities.

In his final novel George V. Higgins provides us with yet another searing and enthralling dissection of the Boston underworld. Arthur McKeach and Nick Cistaro are notorious, especially to the Boston police department. Their reputations precede them as orchestrators of extortion, theft, fraud, bribery, assault and even murder. But for thirty two years, both have managed to elude the authorities. A profitable “arrangement” with the FBI, negotiated some thirty years previously, has kept them comfortably unindicted and free to monopolize Boston’s crime scene for all too long. In this thrilling, fast-paced George V. Higgins classic, the intricate channels of crime and American law enforcement turn out to be inextricably and precariously linked. Inspired by a true story, At End of Day frames a vivid and timelessly authentic narrative that has implications far beyond its pages.

Book Description This is a novel that has many elements weaved into it. It deals with the upshots of workaholism, drug addictions, and disastrous relationships. But it also highlights the joy and bliss of mature and stable relationships. These elements will resonate with many people. It begins on the day Marina is being kept awake by her very first attack of insomnia as she prepares to leave Nigeria to embark on a new life in the UK. For Marina, a journey she largely viewed as one of self discovery. It then begins to unfold with the difficulties she encounters as she tries to settle and find work as a dentist in the UK. Guided by her motto: The 3 Ps "Patience, perseverance, prayer". She finds herself having to move to Preston initially. A place where she knew not a single soul. It would take her years to settle. During which time, she meets a widely differing assortment of characters. Some distinctly strange. Others fascinating, as flat mates, colleagues, boyfriends, patients, and passing strangers. As she nearly works herself to the ground, she discovers that the reality of settling in the UK, especially in London was far from what she had expected. Inexplicably trapped, in an obscene workaholic mindset, she soon found herself on the edge of a colossal burnout, which was compounded by a shattering family tragedy. She realised she had been running on empty. An imminent nervous breakdown was the wake up call that nudged her to turn things around or risk being sectioned. Yielding to a surreal cathartic moment that happened at her sister's flat, which left her bawling her eyes out. Her lachrymal gland dries up, with the tears christening the new changes she's about to introduce into her existence. Changes that would bring Kirsten, a drug addict from an aristocratic lineage, Tyler, Kirsten's illegitimate mixed race five year old son, and James a former psychiatrist into her life. Kirsten's drug addiction had alienated her from her parents. Her only, and younger brother Rupert, becomes the only person she trusts; the only person from her family to stand by her throughout her struggle with her drug addiction, and as a single mother. She loses her inheritance and life of luxury, as she moves into a rundown council flat. Kirsten is also torn apart, to see her beloved son carted from one foster family to another. She seems irreparably damaged not by the drug abuse alone, but by a horrible personal secret that she had never revealed to anyone until she met Marina. Kirsten continued to be a deeply troubled woman who spent stints at rehab centres. But suddenly, just as she is about to turn her life around, reconcile with her parents and heal years of bitter resentments she had harboured against them, she didn't realise that fate had other plans in store for her. Marina soon finds herself becoming a foster mother to Tyler. She surprises herself by taking to motherhood the way a duck takes to water. Before long, James a handsome former psychiatrist enters her life. She finds, it was almost love at first sight. James with a grown up attitude towards relationships, erases all Marina's previous cynicisms about love. As their relationship quickly develops into something serious, it gives Marina the feeling that her life is at last clicking into place. That is until the lingering threat of losing Tyler rattles her newly found equilibrium. Marina begins to worry about this delightful little boy, whose shaky future is at the mercy of the failures, mistakes and decisions of the adults that surround him, both near and afar.
