              Sometimes life can be hard - until the right person shows you the way. Despite coming out years ago, twenty-six-year-old Sean Preston has never been one to shout his sexuality from the rooftops. When his relationship of three months comes to a humiliating end, he vows never to be...come emotionally attached again, falling into a cycle of hook-ups, booze and an unrelenting gym routine. The rest of Sean's life isn't panning out how he hoped either. His job as an online troll moderator is testing his mental health, his best friend and former girlfriend still resents him for coming out, and even his own mother seems to blame him for a tragedy that tore their family apart. But it is his surprising connection with an 87-year-old nursing home resident that pushes his identity crisis to the brink. Then Sean meets naive but kind nurse William, and an unlikely friendship blossoms. William is shy and inexperienced when it comes to the gay dating scene, and Sean offers to show him the way - but it turns out William has a few unexpected life lessons to offer in return . . . and when it comes to forgiveness and self-love, Sean has a lot to learn. Set in Brisbane during Australia's 2017 same-sex marriage plebiscite, A Man and His Pride is an exuberant and deeply moving story that celebrates some of the many ways to be gay, and shows that finding your pride is a journey - one you cannot take alone.

              Matchmaking is easy. Falling in love on the other hand ... Saima knows that she's a great matchmaker. She has the weekly wedding invitations to prove it. So why has her community started turning against her? The desi community in Sydney has eyes, ears and mouths everywhere, and S...aima's feeling firsthand the impact gossip can have. Too modern, too focused on compatibility instead of class and everything else that's meant to matter. She's about to pack it all up and move back in with her Ammy when an eligible bachelor's wealthy parents show up at her door. They're offering the biggest payday she's had in years, but there's a catch- she has to convince their son to accept her services without letting on that it's his parents pulling the strings. Kal is handsome, successful and starting to worry about his path in life. What does it mean to be a third culture kid? When a woman falls into his life challenging everything he thought he knew about heritage, life and love, it might be the answer he's been searching for. But Saima wrote off love a long time ago - has she hardened her heart too much to see what's right in front of her? Can a matchmaker recognise a perfect match?

              En estas paginas, el Papa Francisco aborda uno de los temas mas importantes de su mensaje: la alegria. Porque la verdadera dicha proviene de una esperanza que nada ni nadie puede arrebatarnos. Sonreir es acariciar con el corazon . La alegria es un tema central de las ensenanzas d...el papa Francisco, aun mas necesario en estos tiempos que corren. En unas paginas que son un mensaje para todos los hombres y mujeres del mundo, el pontifice afirma que Dios es dicha y la misericordia es la manifestacion mas profunda de la felicidad de Dios y el nucleo del mensaje cristiano. Las palabras del papa Francisco son una invitacion a abrazar la verdadera belleza; a abrirse, encontrarse y compartir; a cambiar actitudes personales y sociales que fomentan la exclusion; a desenmascarar el descontento que se produce cuando nos encerramos en nosotros mismos; y a afrontar la vida con valentia y confianza, sin dejarse vencer por la tristeza y el pesimismo. Los ocho capitulos de este libro abarcan el tema de la felicidad de manera humana y profunda, conscientes de que la verdadera alegria no es un sentimiento efimero ni ilusorio ni un antidoto para quienes ignoran el sufrimiento: proviene de una esperanza concreta, que nada ni nadie nos podra arrebatar. Es una alegria que tiene la ultima palabra, siempre. Y el deseo de compartir una sonrisa es el primer pequeno gran paso para vivirla, para renovarnos, para renacer.

              Nonna Maria, one of the most charming amateur sleuths ever created (Tess Gerritsen), sets out to clear her goddaughter's name and uncover the checkered past of an unidentifiable victim in this transporting mystery from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lorenzo Carcaterra. Nonn...a Maria has a lot on her plate-and it's not just fresh pasta. Two crimes have rocked the sun-drenched island of Ischia, and once again, the island's denizens have called upon the espresso-brewing, sage counsel-giving sleuth. A wealthy woman alleges a valuable necklace was stolen from her hotel room. The necklace, she claims, has been in her family for decades. She blames one of the young women working on the cleaning crew as the most likely suspect-a young woman who turns out to be Nonna Maria's goddaughter. She takes the heat, but privately, she proclaims her innocence. Nearby, the body of a woman found on a curved road near the borough of Barano. The woman is not known to anyone on the island. She has no purse, no identification. The one potential suspect is a young friend of Nonna Maria's who drove by the area that very night and thinks that he may have hit something-a pothole; an animal; or maybe, the woman in question. It turns out, this woman has a history on the island, having left it decades ago. But why did she return, and more importantly, why did she turn up dead? And what really happened to the missing necklace? Nonna Maria needs to find the answers.

              In this captivating novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Danielle Steel, a wildly successful, unmarried wedding planner leads her clients to happily ever after. Faith Ferguson is New York's most in-demand wedding planner, an arbiter of taste for elegant affairs, lavish... ceremonies, and exclusive fetes. She appreciates a simple celebration as much as a dazzling event, for she knows that a dream wedding is not necessarily the most expensive one. As much as Faith enjoys her work, her two failed engagements leave her with no desire to get married herself. She finds fulfillment in her close relationship with her twin sister, Hope, her role as a mentor for her assistant, Violet, and her career. This year, new clients have flocked to her, and she signs up an extravagant reception, a mid-sized gathering, and an intimate soiree, in addition to her mother's next marriage and Violet's modest ceremony. Faith finds herself forming bonds with her new clients and their loved ones-most notably the handsome brother of one of her grooms. But weddings are not always all champagne and roses, and in no time, Faith is grappling with private quarrels, unplanned pregnancies, family scandals, dark secrets, and the possibility of cancelled ceremonies. Through her own journey, Faith will prove once and for all that that there is not just one path to happily ever after. In The Wedding Planner, Danielle Steel presents an enchanting story about the winding road to love and the many ways to find joy while staying true to oneself.

              NATIONAL BESTSELLER * NEW YORK TIMES EDITORS' CHOICE * An enduring account of joy and sorrow from one of the great writers of our time, The New Yorker's Kathryn Schulz, winner of the Pulitzer Prize I will stake my reputation on you being blown away by Lost & Found. It is brillian...t and profound and charming, all at once. -Anne Lamott, author of Dusk, Night, Dawn and Bird by Bird Eighteen months before Kathryn Schulz's beloved father died, she met the woman she would marry. In Lost & Found, she weaves the stories of those relationships into a brilliant exploration of how all our lives are shaped by loss and discovery-from the maddening disappearance of everyday objects to the sweeping devastations of war, pandemic, and natural disaster; from finding new planets to falling in love. Three very different American families form the heart of Lost & Found: the one that made Schulz's father, a charming, brilliant, absentminded Jewish refugee; the one that made her partner, an equally brilliant farmer's daughter and devout Christian; and the one she herself makes through marriage. But Schulz is also attentive to other, more universal kinds of conjunction: how private happiness can coexist with global catastrophe, how we get irritated with those we adore, how love and loss are themselves unavoidably inseparable. The resulting book is part memoir, part guidebook to living in a world that is simultaneously full of wonder and joy and wretchedness and suffering-a world that always demands both our gratitude and our grief. A staff writer at The New Yorker and winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Kathryn Schulz writes with curiosity, tenderness, erudition, and wit about our finite yet infinitely complicated lives. Crafted with the emotional clarity of C. S. Lewis and the intellectual force of Susan Sontag, Lost & Found is an uncommon book about common experiences.
