    A Dry Spell

    A Dry Spell
    The extraordinary novel that is taking the publishing and film worlds by storm,A Dry Spellis at once a powerful love story, a chilling portrayal of nature unleashed, and a mesmerizing thriller reminiscent of early Stephen King. A town of wide open prairies and endless skies, Goodlands, North Dakota, seemed the perfect place to farm and raise a family--until four years without rain brought the town to its knees. Now darkness has descended on Goodlands: fires are singeing the already parched land, suspicious crimes are on the rise and an ever-increasing sense of doom is enveloping the town. Goodlands is being held in the grip of something beyond weather. And only a stranger can set it free. Tom Keatley has pulled rain from the sky in town after arid town. A loner, a drifter, Tom is a rainmaker, the stuff of myth. But to Karen Grange, an outsider like Tom, he is her only hope to save the dying town. For Tom Keatley, inextricably drawn to Goodlands and to Karen, the storm is just beginning. Because beneath the hard, cracked earth is a shattering secret that only he can uncover. And in the hot, dry air, a sinister force is gathering strength, ready to wage a war for the soul of the town. With its unforgettable characters, tautly woven human dramas and harrowing portrait of the power of nature,A Dry Spellweaves a spell all its own. It is an epic story of evil and redemption, and of lives transformed in a dying town.

    The Sum of Our Days CD
    A Memoir
    In this heartfelt memoir, Isabel Allende reconstructs the painful reality of her own life in the wake of tragic loss—the death of her daughter, Paula. Recalling the past thirteen years from the daily letters the author and her mother, who lives in Chile, wrote to each other, Allende bares her soul in a book that is as exuberant and full of life as its creator. She recounts the stories of the wildly eccentric, strong-minded, and eclectic tribe she gathers around her that becomes a new kind of family. Throughout, Allende shares her thoughts on love, marriage, motherhood, spirituality and religion, infidelity, addiction, and memory. Here, too, are the amazing stories behind Allende’s books, the superstitions that guide her writing process, and her adventurous travels. Ultimately, The Sum of Our Days offers a unique tour of this gifted writer’s inner world and of the relationships that have become essential to her life and her work. Narrated with warmth, humor, exceptional candor, and wisdom, The Sum of Our Days is a portrait of a contemporary family, bound together by the love, fierce loyalty, and stubborn determination of a beloved, indomitable matriarch.
