Perennials

Perennials
Cantrell, Julie, 1973-

Eva grew up in Oxford, MS, surrounded by literary history and her mother's stunning perennial gardens. But a garden shed fire and the burns suffered by one of her best friends seemed to change everything. Her older sister Bitsy blamed her for the fire--and no one spoke up on her behalf. Eva fled to Arizona and became a successful advertising executive, a weekend yoga instructor. She seems to have it all together--but when she gets a call from her father insisting that she come home three weeks early for her parents' 50th wedding anniversary celebration, she's at wits end. Is there hope for Eva's estranged relationship with Bitsy after all this time?

The Spectrum of Hope: An Optimistic and New Approach to Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias

The Spectrum of Hope: An Optimistic and New Approach to Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias
Devi, Gayatri

"By defining Alzheimer's Disease as a spectrum disorder---like autism, it affects different people differently---Dr. Gayatri Devi offers new hope for its millions of sufferers. A neurologist who's been specializing in dementia and memory loss for more than 20 years, Dr. Devi shares the stories of her patients in the kind of narrative medical writing that grips the reader, humanizes the science, and offers equal parts practical wisdom and advice. She explains the importance of an early diagnosis; drugs and therapies that can help manage the disease; and how to cope, from maintaining independence to the best ways to fight depression and apathy. There are chapters on sexuality, genetics, communication, even staying on the job---because through her practice, Dr. Devi knows that the majority of Alzheimer's patients continue to live and work in their communities. They babysit the grandkids, drive to the store (or own the store), serve their clients, or otherwise live fulfilling lives."--Back cover.

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House
Wolff, Michael, 1953-

"The first nine months of Donald Trump's term were stormy, outrageous -- and absolutely mesmerizing. Now, thanks to his deep access to the West Wing, bestselling author Michael Wolff tells the riveting story of how Trump launched a tenure as volatile and fiery as the man himself. In this explosive book, Wolff provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office. Among the revelations : What President Trump's staff really thinks of him -- What inspired Trump to claim he was wire-tapped by President Obama -- Why FBI director James Comey was really fired -- Why chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn't be in the same room -- Who is really directing the Trump administration's strategy in the wake of Bannon's firing -- What the secret to communicating with Trump is -- What the Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers. Never before has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported and astoundingly fresh, Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury shows us how and why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion" -- Book jacket.

This Is What Happened

This Is What Happened
Herron, Mick

Twenty-six-year-old Maggie Barnes is someone you would never look at twice. Living alone in a month-to-month sublet in the huge city of London, with no family but an estranged sister, no boyfriend or partner, and not much in the way of friends, Maggie is just the kind of person who could vanish from the face of the earth without anyone taking notice. Or just the kind of person MI5 needs to infiltrate the establishment and thwart an international plot that puts all of Britain at risk. Now one young woman has the chance to be a hero--if she can think quickly enough to stay alive.
