These tales of rescue and tragedy, of love lost and redeemed, describe first-hand what life was like for lightkeepers and their families in twenty-five light stations along the exposed and often inhospitable coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. Most of these stories are told here for the first time in print, and each story is rich with new details and insights from the perspective of these remarkable men and women.

Abby McDonald - Sophomore Switch

Take an administrative snafu, a bad breakup, and what shall heretofore be known as "The Hot-Tub Incident," and you’ve got two unprepared sophomores on a semester abroad.

For American party girl Tasha, an escape to Oxford may be a chance to ditch her fame as a tabloid temptress, but wading Uggs-deep in feminist theory is not her idea of a break. Meanwhile, the British half of the exchange, studious Emily, nurses an aching heart amid the bikinis and beer pong of U.C. Santa Barbara. Soon desperation has the girls texting each other tips — on fitting in, finding love, and figuring out who they really are. With an anthropologist’s eye for detail and a true ear for teen-speak, exciting new novelist Abby McDonald has crafted a funny, fast-paced, poignant look at survival, sisterhood, and the surprising ways we discover our true selves.

In its own singsong rhythm-the "crazy beat" of Suzy's unforgettable life-Suzy Zeus Gets Organized chronicles a furious odyssey from Astoria to Astroland-by way of such pit stops as Berlin, the Big Easy, Buddhism, Barbie, and the Bible-that leaves Suzy, although in the same town, in a somewhat better state. Excerpted in Andrew Solomon's bestselling The Noonday Demon, this marvelously told story of a rowdy city girl bent on finding inner harmony will delight readers everywhere.

The grifter class—made up of the largest players in the financial industry and the politicians who do their bidding—has been growing in power, and the crisis was only one terrifying manifestation of how they’ve hijacked America’s political and economic life.Matt Taibbi has combined deep sources, trailblazing reportage, and provocative analysis to create the most lucid, emotionally galvanizing account yet written of this ongoing American crisis. He offers fresh reporting on the backroom deals of the bailout; tells the story of Goldman Sachs, the “vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity”; and uncovers the hidden commodities bubble that transferred billions of dollars to Wall Street while creating food shortages around the world.This is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the labyrinthine inner workings of this country, and the profound consequences for us all.

People die, fights erupt, and assumptions are shattered. But all in good fun.The Spaces Between follows the path of several characters across a world where advanced magic is possible, but yet people read by candle light and fear the dark. Men who have spent their lives in taverns can suddenly travel a thousand miles through wilderness. Mercenaries believe they can learn magic form blubberingly-mad warlocks, and simple-minded farmers are guided by the spirits of the dead.If you want to read a serious tome of roaring, rolling fantasy; an earth-shaking, ground-breaking book, this is not for you. But if you want to spend a few hours in the company of a bunch of fun characters in a world where normal is undefined, and where darkness is merely a murky evening on the shores of fantasy, read on... Now, for the “real” description of this work:A gruff mercenary believes he can somehow learn magic from an exiled warlock, and he's picked up a blundering drunk along the way. Zhy, convinced he is part of some misdirected script, agrees to follow, hoping only for a change of scenery and a new source of ale.The two men run into a trigger-happy mage and he joins the excursion. It isn't long before this combination of characters results in calamity and errors in judgment; their "quest" becomes nebulous and uncertain—that is, until it smacks them collectively from the face of the world.Guided by the spirits of the dead, an idiot man-child is close behind them. He obligingly trudges along a frozen and bitter path to stop Zhy from reaching the warlock, though he himself is only part of a devastating scheme.*** Includes Chapters 1-3 of Part II: Dead Spaces ***
