The reclusive Harriet Wolf, revered author and family matriarch, has a final confession - a love story. Years after her death, as her family comes together one last time, the mystery of Harriet´s life hangs in the balance. Does the truth lie in the rumored final book of the series that made Harriet a world-famous writer, or will her final confession be lost forever? Harriet Wolf´s Seventh Book of Wonders tells the moving story of the unforgettable Wolf women in four distinct voices: the mysterious Harriet, who, until now, has never revealed the secrets of her past; her fiery, overprotective daughter, Eleanor; and her two grown granddaughters - Tilton, the fragile yet exuberant younger sister who´s become a housebound hermit, and Ruth, the older sister who ran away at 16 and never looked back. When Eleanor is hospitalized, Ruth decides it´s time to do right by a pact she made with Tilton long ago: to return home and save her sister. Meanwhile Harriet whispers her true-life story to the listener. It´s a story that spans the entire 20th century and is filled with mobsters, outcasts, a lonesome lion, and a home for wayward women. It´s also a tribute to her lifelong love of the boy she met at the Maryland School for Feeble-Minded Children. Harriet Wolf´s Seventh Book of Wonders, Julianna Baggott´s most sweeping and mesmerizing novel yet, offers a profound meditation on motherhood and sisterhood as well as on the central importance of stories. It is a novel that affords its characters that rare chance we all long for - the chance to reimagine the stories of our lives while there´s still time. 1. Language: English.

An evocative poem and stunning watercolors come together to honor an American heroine in a Coretta Scott King Honor and Christopher Award-winning picture book. We know her today as Harriet Tubman, but in her lifetime she was called by many names. As General Tubman she was a Union spy. As Moses she led hundreds to freedom on the Underground Railroad. As Minty she was a slave whose spirit could not be broken. As Araminta she was a young girl whose father showed her the stars and the first steps on the path to freedom. This lush, lyrical biography in verse begins with a glimpse of Harriet Tubman as an old woman, and travels back in time through the many roles she played through her life: spy, liberator, suggragist and more. Illustrated by James Ransome, whose paintings for The Creation won a Coretta Scott King medal, this is a riveting introduction to an American hero. The paperback edition includes a new author´s note, and a list of resources for further study. * A Junior Library Guild Selection * A Coretta Scott King Honor Book * A Christopher Award winner * A Jane Addams Children´s Honor Book <

Boca Raton. South Florida´s wealthy enclave of sand, surf, martinis, and murder….From high society ´´Boca Babe´´ to Harley-riding private eye, Harriet Horowitz has established her rep as a kick-ass P.I. with an insider´s connection to both the high life and the low life of Florida´s Palm Beach coast. Like ´´Junior´´ Castellano, a big-time land developer who hires Harriet to find the silver-haired gigolo who broke Mama Castellano´s heart, Harriet is practical when it comes to solving problems. Simple enough, until the Boca police find Junior bulldozed at one of his construction sites. Was Junior killed by his mother´s con man? Or by a bitter ex-wife or spurned ex-girlfriend? Maybe by his estranged sons? And what about the bartender at Hog Heaven, who was about to lose her home in a trailer park because of Junior´s latest land development deal? Harriet will do whatever it takes to protect others. Even if Junior Castellano´s enemy list is longer than the reservations at a Boca cocktail bar, and the scheme he was hatching was big enough to destroy the whole city. A hurricane is heading toward Boca. It should be named Harriet. Dirty Harriet, Miriam Auerbach´s debut mystery novel, won a Romantic Times Reviewers´ Choice Award.
