Letters on Ethics
Author: Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
The Roman statesman and philosopher Seneca (4 BCE–65 CE) recorded his moral philosophy and reflections on life as a highly original kind of correspondence. Letters on Ethics includes vivid descriptions of town and country life in Nero’s Italy, discussions of poetry and oratory, and philosophical training for Seneca’s friend Lucilius. This volume, the first complete English translation in nearly a century, makes the Letters more accessible than ever before. Written as much for a general audience as for Lucilius, these engaging letters offer advice on how to deal with everything from nosy neighbors to sickness, pain, and death. Seneca uses the informal format of the letter to present the central ideas of Stoicism, for centuries the most influential philosophical system in the Mediterranean world. His lively and at times humorous expositions have made the Letters his most popular work and an enduring classic. Including an introduction and explanatory notes by Margaret Graver and A. A. Long, this authoritative edition will captivate a new generation of readers.

Anna Pigeon, in her career as a National Park Service Ranger, has had to deal with all manner of crimes and misdemeanors, but cyber-bullying and stalking is a new one. The target is Elizabeth, the adopted teenage daughter of her friend Heath Jarrod. Elizabeth is driven to despair by the disgusting rumors spreading online and bullying texts. Until, one day, Heath finds her daughter Elizabeth in the midst of an unsuccessful suicide attempt. And then she calls in the cavalry---her aunt Gwen and her friend Anna Pigeon. While they try to deal with the fragile state of affairs---and find the person behind the harassment---the three adults decide the best thing to do is to remove Elizabeth from the situation. Since Anna is about to start her new post as Acting Chief Ranger at Acadia National Park in Maine, the three will join her and stay at a house on the cliff of a small island near the park, Boar Island. But the move east doesn't solve the problem. The stalker has followed them east. And Heath (a paraplegic) and Elizabeth aren't alone on the otherwise deserted island. At the same time, Anna has barely arrived at Acadia before a brutal murder is committed by a killer uncomfortably close to her. BOAR ISLAND is a brilliant intertwining of past and present, of victims and killers, in a compelling novel that only Nevada Barr could write.

Come back to Seattle's Blossom Street with #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber! These are the next four stories (after The Shop on Blossom Street, A Good Yarn and Susannah's Garden) in one of the most popular series around... Christmas Letters: Katherine O'Connor (known as K.O.) adores her five–year–old twin nieces–and strongly objects to her sister Zelda's plans to dispense with Christmas. Zelda is following the theories of child psychologist Wynn Jeffries, author of The Free Child (and also K.O.'s neighbor on Blossom Street). K.O. is particularly horrified by his edict to "bury Santa under the sleigh," and she's out to prove that Wynn and his ideas are full of...snow. He's not going to ruin her nieces' Christmas! Too bad the guy's so darned attractive... Back on Blossom Street: Susannah Nelson, owner of Susannah's Garden, has just hired an assistant named Colette Blake, a young widow who's obviously hiding a secret–or two!

Margaret's daughter, Julia, is the victim of a random carjacking, and the entire family is thrown into emotional chaos. Then there's Alix Townsend, whose wedding is only months away. She's not sure she can go through with it, though. But, like everyone in Lydia's knitting class, Alix knows there's a solution to every problem...and another woman can usually help you find it! Twenty Wishes: What Anne Marie Roche, owner of Blossom Street Books, wants is to find happiness again. At thirty–eight, she's childless, a recent widow and alone. On Valentine's Day, Anne Marie and several other widows get together to celebrate...a sense of hope. They each begin a list of twenty wishes–including things they'd always wanted to do but never done. When she volunteers at a local school, an eight–year–old girl named Ellen enters her life. As Ellen helps Anne Marie complete her list, they both learn that wishes can come true...but not necessarily in the way you expect! The Twenty–First Wish: Anne Marie and her adopted daughter, Ellen, have each written a list of twenty wishes–on which they included learning to knit. Like many of their wishes, it's come true and now they knit practically every day. But Ellen has quietly added a twenty–first wish: that her mom will fall in love with Ellen's birth father, Tim, who's recently entered their lives...
