Beloved heroine Maisie Dobbs, “one of the great fictional heroines” (Parade), investigates the mysterious murder of an American war correspondent in London during the Blitz in a page-turning tale of love and war, terror and survival. When Catherine Saxon, an American correspondent reporting on the war in Europe, is found murdered in her London digs, news of her death is concealed by British authorities. Serving as a linchpin between Scotland Yard and the Secret Service, Robert MacFarlane pays a visit to Maisie Dobbs, seeking her help.

As the Germans unleash the full terror of their blitzkrieg upon the British Isles, raining death and destruction from the skies, Maisie must balance the demands of solving this dangerous case with her need to protect Anna, the young evacuee she has grown to love and wants to adopt. Entangled in an investigation linked to the power of wartime propaganda and American political intrigue being played out in Britain, Maisie will face losing her dearest friend—and the possibility that she might be falling in love again.

OPRAH WINFREY: An Oprah Winfrey BiographyFrom rags to riches? Not an easy feat, but it has been done plenty of times before. When you're talking about someone like Oprah Winfrey though, you have to think bigger, and bolder. How about... From poverty to the Presidency? There has long been buzz around the multimedia mogul mounting a challenge against Republican Donald Trump for the United States Presidential elections of the year 2020. Calls for her to run for the highest office in the land have come from various corners, particularly many Democrats, women, and people of color. These calls include jokes, of course. But there is something about "#Oprah2020" that distinguishes it from other good-humored trending, celebrity presidential hashtags like "#TheRock2020" or "#Kanye2020" - that is, the scent of delectable, exhilarating possibility. A black, female American from humble roots, with no experience in public office, whose main claim to fame and source of fortune is a long gone talk show, running to become the leader of the free world? It sounds like a pipe dream, yet Oprah somehow exudes a sense of credibility, and manages to carry such desperate hopes that it just seems possible. She has repeatedly denied any serious interest in running for public office, much less the presidency of the most powerful country in the world. But the simple fact that #Oprah2020 keeps recurring in conversation and has staying power in the news cycles and the public imagination is phenomenal in itself. It is proof of the heights she successfully scaled, even when she started from the very bottom. This is the magic of Oprah Winfrey. She makes anything seem possible by her example. This is her story...

In fact, according to Gallup research, nearly 90 percent of people feel disconnected from their jobs. So how do you break free from the drudgery and achieve more success on your own terms?

Explanation of the Book:

“An insightful memoir that uncovers unique stories about matters of the heart.” —Essence The inspiring New York Times bestseller from Common—the Grammy Award, Academy Award, and Golden Globe–winning musician, actor, and activist—explores how love and mindfulness can build communities and allow you to take better control of your life through actions and words. Common believes that the phrase “let love have the last word” is not just a declaration; it is a statement of purpose, a daily promise. Love is the most powerful force on the planet, and ultimately the way you love determines who you are and how you experience life. Touching on God, self-love, partners, children, family, and community, Common explores the core tenets of love to help us understand what it means to receive and, most importantly, to give love. He moves from the personal—writing about his daughter, to whom he wants to be a better father—to the universal, where he observes that our society has become fractured under issues of race and politics. He knows there’s no quick remedy for all of the hurt in the world, but love—for yourself and for others—is where the healing begins. In his first public reveal, Common also shares a deeply personal experience of childhood molestation that he is now confronting…and forgiving. Courageous, insightful, brave, and characteristically authentic, Let Love Have the Last Word shares Common’s own unique and personal stories of the people and experiences that have led to a greater understanding of love and all it has to offer. It is a powerful call to action for a new generation of open hearts and minds, one that is sure to resonate for years to come.
