Sharing the value of a positive attitude in overcoming challenges and the importance of giving back, Women Like Us: Illuminating the World presents a collection of narratives about women from around the world who have changed their lives and the lives of others through their service and dedication. Women Like Us tells the stories of Deb Carlson of rural Alaska, who chose a life of hand-built structures, gardening, hiking, and living minimally while doing her part to develop her community; of Toni Lusk, a trailing corporate wife who found a way to make a difference and to give back despite moving often; and of Linda Groveronce a child of foster care, now a woman on a mission to create change in the system. Authors Linda Rendleman and Sally Brown Bassett salute and celebrate life-changing women by sharing a variety of uplifting vignettes, such as the journey of one woman who moved to Uganda and started a birthing center to support mothers with AIDS and another who helped to build a school in a Kenyan village. The messages communicated in Women Like Us serve to inspire and motivate women to find their passion, put purpose to that passion, contribute to creating a better world, and transform their own lives.

But after her marriage to Andrew fell apart, she ceded most of the raising of the baby to her mother-in-law, the very opinionated Edith Vale, a woman as formidable and steely as her stiff blond bouffant, the veritable helmet that helps her soldier through life. Now, after letting Henry drift away, Susan is determined to make things right. But just as mother and son seem to make headway after embarking on a cross-country road trip, things take a dark turn. When the family reconvenes in California, everybody must fight to find courage and humor in the face of a situation that threatens to change them all forever.

An Instant New York Times Bestseller From the New York Times bestselling author of The Banker's Wife, worlds collide when an FBI agent investigates a string of grisly murders on Long Island that raises the impossible question: What happens when the primary suspect is your father? FBI Agent Nell Flynn hasn't been home in ten years. Nell and her father, Homicide Detective Martin Flynn, have never had much of a relationship. And Suffolk County will always be awash in memories of her mother, Marisol, who was murdered when Nell was just seven. When Martin Flynn dies in a motorcycle accident, Nell returns to the house she grew up in so that she can spread her father's ashes and close his estate. At the behest of her father's partner, Detective Lee Davis, Nell becomes involved in an investigation into the murders of two young women in Suffolk County. The further Nell digs, the more likely it seems to her that her father should be the prime suspect--and that his friends on the police force are covering his tracks. Plagued by doubts about her mother's murder--and her own role in exonerating her father in that case--Nell can't help but ask questions about who killed Ria Ruiz and Adriana Marques and why. But she may not like the answers she finds--not just about those she loves, but about herself.
