“Captivating [...] Herrick weaves a rich tapestry of family lore, dark secrets, and love.” —Brunonia Barry, New York Times bestselling author of The Lace Reader and The Fifth Petal Perfect for fans of Kate Morton and Sarah Jio, comes a lush imaginative novel that takes readers into the heart of a mysterious English country garden, waiting to spring to life. Every garden is a story, waiting to be told… At the nursery she runs with her sisters on the New England coast, Sorrel Sparrow has honed her rare gift for nurturing plants and flowers. Now that reputation, and a stroke of good timing, lands Sorrel an unexpected opportunity: reviving a long-dormant Shakespearean garden on an English country estate. Arriving at Kirkwood Hall, ancestral home of Sir Graham Kirkwood and his wife Stella, Sorrel is shocked by the desolate state of the walled garden. Generations have tried—and failed—to bring it back to glory. Sorrel senses heartbreak and betrayal here, perhaps even enchantment. Intrigued by the house’s history—especially the haunting tapestries that grace its walls—and increasingly drawn to Stella’s enigmatic brother, Sorrel sets to work. And though she knows her true home is across the sea with her sisters, instinct tells her that the English garden’s destiny is entwined with her own, if she can only unravel its secrets…

Anne Sherwood has made her life into a safe, orderly garden. She draws the plants of London's famous Kew Gardens, an entirely suitable occupation for a widowed lady in Queen Victoria's England.

The letters in this collection form a self-portrait of one of the greatest Latin American poets of the twentieth century. They display her insight, the forcefulness of her language, and humorous use of wordplay and puns, offering us a much more intimate portrait than any biographer could achieve. We see Pizarnik's process of self-discovery and artistic exploration in her literary life, as well as the development of her work in progress. This selection of thirty letters and two postcards, written between September 2, 1969, and September 12, 1972, includes most of Pizarnik's correspondence with Spanish writer-editor-artist Antonio Beneyto. From these informative letters we learn about her influences, the artists, poets, and writers she preferred, and her reactions to them. She collaborated on various projects and cultivated many literary and personal ties with writers of the stature of Julio Cortazar, Olga Orozco, Octavio Paz, Pieyre de Mandiargues, Silvina Ocampo, and Luisa Sofovich, among others. Although the corpus of Pizarnik's writing available in English has expanded in the last twelve years, it is still far from adequate. This is the first time that a selection of letters from Alejandra Pizarnik to Antonio Beneyto has been published in English. The translators hope that this volume will serve English-speaking audiences as a new bridge to her work.

Entangled in a web of deceit and devastated by her broken engagement, Mackenzie Adams is overwhelmed by guilt and shame. Believing her “sin” is unforgiveable, Mackenzie flees her Arizona home, despite her parents’ objection, and travels to central Arkansas to take on full-time employment as nanny to the child of Andrew Huntington, owner of a well-known land development corporation. Terror strikes when Mackenzie arrives at the Huntington's historic estate, Park House, and discovers that Mr. Huntington's wife, Jasmine, has been murdered. Elise, the Huntingtons’ baby girl, captures Mackenzie’s heart. This relationship, along with the friendship of fellow employee, Angela Valincia, helps to offset the hostility Mackenzie tolerates from house manager, Mrs. Slater, and the unwelcome romantic pursuit of Greg Martin, Mr. Huntington's obnoxious chauffeur. Her trust level in men below zero, Mackenzie’s conception of the opposite sex is challenged when she meets her employer’s nephew, Trace Patterson, the debonair vice president of Huntington, Inc. Curious about Jasmine, Mackenzie senses a strong urge to search for her killer. With the aid of Angie, Mackenzie begins her surreptitious quest, ignoring the warning of jeopardy she might incur. Things heat up when Elise is kidnapped, Jasmine’s attorney, Jason Crane, is murdered, and the killer discovers that Mackenzie has a clue that will identify him.
